Disney role models
American actresses Keira Knightley and Kristen Bell have publicly spoken about their relationship, as mothers, with Disney cartoons and movies. Both reject Disney princesses as role models for their children. In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Keira Knightley said she forbids her daughter from watching Cinderella because “[Cinderella] waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t. Rescue yourself! Obviously.” She also targeted The Little Mermaid, stating that although she really liked the film, she proscribed it too because of Ariel giving up her voice for a man. Kristen Bell said in an interview with Parents that she uses Snow White to teach her daughters to never take food from a stranger, unlike the film’s protagonist.
