Every time one of these “actresses” open their mouths about fairy tales damaging their children I just puke in my mouth. Kristen Bell, Keira Knightly come to mind this week. I loved most of these movies they are in. (Frozen, soon to be released Disney’s ‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” come to mind). Outside of the big screen? Hey, shut it down. No wonder Hollywood ticket sales just keep plunging, Just look at recent stories, for instance theverge.com. Look at ticket numbers SOLD not the ridiculous prices you pay at box office, so they can spew their mindless opinions. Don’t get me wrong, Kristen Bell’s comedic timing is second to none, Keira Knightley’s Atonement, perfection.
Quit killing the soliloquy on why you won’t let your kids watch certain Disney movies. These are make believe stories that are GREAT! Quit killing the romance. MAYBE if you concentrated on taking literature classes in various disciplines you would have learned about story development, the basic of which is good vs. evil, reading some of the great Shakespeare classics “The Taming of the Shrew” later on Broadway, “Kiss Me Kate”. A simple accounting class would help too, the kind that teaches you that your paycheck is green…
I’m a strong business woman whose mom, dad (or older siblings) read wonderful tales from favorite books like Hans Christian Anderson … (my favorite was Thumbelina and movie, Snow White). I didn’t think about the knight riding in (though I found mine charged in) as much as the woodland friends who helped her clean the house. I wasn’t “harmed” because the prince comes in to rescue my day or kissed me first without asking. (I said yes on our 2nd date and am gracious for his love and support all these years. Hell, he likely was the better “mother” anyhow because his chief job was to make sure that at least he was always there while I ran, for the better part, the business.)
I don’t know what ticks me off more, actors who think we want to know about their politics or opinions on the latest #hashtag movement, their stupid publicists that think ANY mention in the social universe keeps their client relevant (it doesn’t, it just makes their adoring public less adoring and turned off), or the press who ask these stupid opinions in the first place
SHUT UP AND MAKE YOUR MONEY FROM DISNEY.
