Speaking to Parenting, Kristen suggested the kiss from near-stranger The Prince sends the wrong message to a young audience because Snow White isn't even conscious.

'Every time we close [the book], I look at my girls and ask, "Don't you think it's weird that Snow White didn't ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple?"

Kristen Bell may voice Disney princess Anna in Frozen, but she's not fully comfortable with some of the older stories.

'I say, "I would never take food from a stranger, would you?"

That's not the only question Kristen poses to her kids. "Bell asked her daughters "[because] you cannot kiss someone if they're sleeping!"

Earlier this year, Amnesty International Canada posted a rendition of the children's classic titled, "No Consent = No Fairy Tale", showing Prince Charming kiss an unconscious Snow White before groping the princess between her legs. She remains in a deathless slumber for a year until a prince who fell in love with her previously comes and kisses her.

The star also expressed concerns with another dated part of the "Snow White" story, the fact that she takes the apple from the witch and eats it without question. "They're really good critical thinkers", Bell said of the things her kids get from her and Shepard, 43.


Snow White is the latest Disney story to come under fire for being outdated.

Keira Knightley, who has starred as the female hero in several of Disney's blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean films and is also featured in this year's The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, also jumped in to slam Disney animated characters saying that she has banned her children from watching several Disney films. "You might think I'm ruining the fantasy of it all, but these stories are promoting sexual violence, and I would like everyone to be aware of it". "I have to feed it every day. Don't. Rescue yourself, obviously", Knightley said. We were going to - you know.

"Because, you know, she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her".

I think The Little Mermaid teaches wrong values: girl gives up her voice to get legs to hook a boy she's never met - using only her looks!

What do you make of Bell's teaching techniques with her children?

Plenty of people pointed out Bell's interesting take on Snow White.
