Lily Allen has spoken out against her actor father Keith Allen and the derogatory way he spoke about women.
The 34-year-old mother-of-two said that Keith was so disparaging with his remarks about women that it made her want to grow up avoiding being female.
The singer said it was the arrival of her own daughters that made her feel differently.
She is mother to Marnie, six, and Ethel, seven, with ex-husband Sam Cooper.
In an interview with Killing Eve star Jodie Comer for Stylist magazine, Lily said: “When I was growing up I had a very fragmented relationship with my dad.
“The way he spoke about women with his friends was quite derogatory so I tried to avoid being a woman.
“I didn’t really bond with women and I felt jealous of women. Then, when I had my two girls I was like, ‘OK, I guess you’re going to have to start liking women now, Lily.’
“But it’s been a complete blessing.”
Jodie also revealed to Lily how much her life has changed since the success of TV series Killing Eve.
She revealed: “A couple of weeks ago, I was going to New York and then when I got out of the car at the airport at four in the morning there was a bunch of strange men waiting for me to sign autographs.
“It really threw me because it was the first time I’d had anything like that.”
The full interview appears in Lily Allen takes over Stylist, out on June 12.
