Bell will be pleased to hear, however, that "Frozen" is "huge" in the British star's household, as well as recent Disney films like "Moana" and "Finding Dory". On "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", Keira Knightley said she won't let her 3-year-old daughter watch "Cinderella" or "The Little Mermaid". "Don't. Rescue yourself, obviously", the actress said.
