Keira Knightley talked to Ellen De Generes about her daughter Edie. More

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.

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. "There are some great ones", she said.

While talking about the film, Knightley told Ellen that she is not a fan of every Disney movie, since there are a few that don't uphold her feminist values.

The actor revealed Cinderella is banned because, "She waits around for a rich guy to rescue her". Don't! Rescue yourself. Obviously!

"The problem with The Little Mermaid is I love The Little Mermaid!".

Knightley admitted she loved "The Little Mermaid", especially the songs, but conceded that Ariel's decision to give her voice up to the villain, Ursula, in pursuit of Prince Eric was a awful example for little girls.

Even the 1989 classic The Little Mermaid- which she admitted was a personal favourite- was also off-limits for the toddler.

However, the British actress did say that the story of Dory, the loveable dopey fish voiced by Ellen DeGeneres in the 2016 hit Finding Dory was allowed.

The mother also talked about her daughter's wild aspirations in life. "A little tricky wanting to be a lion, but yes, she's allowed to do whatever she wants".

"She's so wet with no character [Cinderella], but I'm not going to stop her enjoying a film".

Keira Knightley has some pretty strict rules when it comes to raising her daughter Edie.
