The Good Place star, who is married to fellow actor Dax Shepard, says she regularly uses the bedtime tale to challenge its take on stealing, strangers and consent.
As Hollywood deals with the fall-out of the MeToo movement Snow White has become the latest target, amid claims the Disney version of the fairy tale encourages men to kiss women without consent.
"Every time we close Snow White I look at my girls and ask: 'Don't you think that it's weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?'"
Bell added that she tells her kids not to take food from strangers as Snow White does in the story.
- James Woods (@RealJamesWoods)I am survivor of abuse and for me as a child who grew up with Snow White, the story made me remember that not all men are abusers. "Because you can not kiss someone if they're sleeping", she said.
The star also expressed concerns with another dated part of the "Snow White" story, the fact that she takes the apple from the witch and eats it without question.
