“Cinderella, banned because she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her,” she told the daytime talk show host. “Don’t. Rescue yourself, obviously. And this is the one that I’m quite annoyed about because I really like the film, but… Little Mermaid. I mean, the songs are great, but do not give your voice up for a man. Hello!”
Knightley followed that up by sharing that her daughter is definitely allowed to watch Finding Dory, which DeGeneres was naturally happy about, since she's the film's star. The actress also revealed that little Edie has already decided on a few careers that interest her.
“It’s changed. She did want to be a dentist, which I was super happy about,” Knightley shared. “I thought, you know, that’s a stable career… Now she wants to be a lion. Which I think is slightly more problematic. She roars very well.”
In The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Knightley plays the Sugar Plum Fairy, who helps young Clara (MacKenzie Foy) navigate a magical alternate universe where she must find a key to save the fourth realm, an unstable land.
