Kristen Bell may be the voice of Anna in Disney’s Frozen, but that doesn’t mean she approves of all the Disney princesses and their actions.
In an interview with Parents, Bell admitted that some of the characters may be teaching her daughters, Lincoln and Delta, bad lessons.
“I glance away from the book and see their brains working while we’re all cuddled up like meerkats,” she told Parents about reading to her daughters every night.
Bell added that the family discusses the stories that they read together. “Every time we close Snow White 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? Or where she got that apple?'” she said. “I say, ‘I would never take food from a stranger, would you?’ And my kids are like, ‘No!’ And I’m like, ‘OK, I’m doing something right.'”
In the fairy tale, an evil queen gives the titular character a poisoned apple that forces her into a permanent sleep. The only way she can be woken up is if she is kissed by someone who loves her.
The actress added that she also discusses topics like consent with her daughters. “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” Bell said about her conversations with her daughters. “Because you cannot kiss someone if they’re sleeping!”
