Kristen Bell may play a princess in the astronomically popular Disney insta-classic Frozen, but she is not above throwing down with some of the other heroines from the House of Mouse.
Bell reserves special derision for Snow White, who she fears may be sending the wrong message about strangers and consent.
“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?’ I say, ‘I would never take food from a stranger, would you?'” Bell tells Parents of reading with her children. “And my kids are like, ‘No!’ And I’m like, ‘OK, I’m doing something right.'”
She is also concerned about the unrequested physical attention. “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” Bell recalls asking her daughters. “Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping!”
