Knightley will be playing the "Sugarplum Fairy" in Disney's upcoming adaptation of "The Nutcracker".

Keira Knightley joins The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Tuesday (October 16), and gushes all about her 3-year-old daughter, Edie Knightley Righton!

At the top of her hit list?

Cinderella is at the top of the list because, as Knightley explained, "She waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don't. Rescue yourself - obviously!" "My family watched these sorts of films growing up, but as a family unit we didn't conform to them nor did people who we were surrounded by, so it didn't affect us really".

Knightley admitted she loved "The Little Mermaid", especially the songs, but conceded that Ariel's decision to give her voice up to the villain, Ursula, in pursuit of Prince Eric was a bad example for little girls.

"'Dory' is a big favorite in our house", she admitted, apparently referencing the "Finding Nemo" sequel, "Finding Dory".

Of course, Ellen is in full support of the Dory love, considering she has voiced the character in both Finding Nemo and Finding Dory. "That one's a little tricky-but I'm keeping to it".

"Now she wants to a be a lion, she roars very well!"

"She did want to be a dentist, which I was super happy about because I thought, you know, that's a stable career", Knightley said.
