I’m pretty sure if Keira Knightly ever came out with a solo album it would come with complimentary tampons and a coupon for Rocky Road ice cream. Fitting for those nights when everything is coming out red instead of coming up roses. Sorrowful soundtrack singles aside, Keira is a strong woman. So strong, she doesn’t let her daughter watch certain Disney films. Don’t let the fact that she’s in an upcoming Disney film fool you, it was probably the evil patriarchy that made her sign a contract stating she must promote the project or lose some pay. How else is she going to be able to afford better material for her daughter to watch like Finding Dory that teaches important lessons like fish can actually talk to you if you’re high off of imagination or the right hallucinogens.

Keira Knightley won't let her daughter watch some of Disney's most classic animated films.

While the actress is busy promoting her own upcoming Disney movie, "The Nutcracker and the Four Realms", she's very particular about the types of media she exposes her 3-year-old daughter Edie Knightley Righton to.

"'Cinderella' banned. Because, you know, she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don't. Rescue yourself, obviously," the actress said.

“And this is the one that I'm quite annoyed about because I really like the film but 'The Little Mermaid.' I mean the songs are great but do not give your voice up for a man. Hello?" she continued. "But I love'The Little Mermaid'so that one's a little tricky one, but no, I'm keeping to it."

Cinderella banned? Way to go momma Knightley, now you’ll be the owner of that one weird kid that will never understand any of the “Cinderella lost her slipper” references in class. The Little Mermaid isn’t allowed either? Is Keira aware that mermaids, chatty crabs and other loquacious sea-life is about as fictional as the actual Little Mermaid story itself? I’ve watched more than a few Disney films and have turned out fine for the most part. I’m not kissing women on the mouth without their consent that I find in a coma-like state in the forest. I'd call the police like everybody else.
