During an interview, Bryce Dallas Howard said that the producers of the “Jurassic World” films were unhappy with her appearance. How can I put this…?” In an article published by Metro on Thursday, the actress who played Claire Dearing said, “[I’ve] been ordered to not use my natural physique in cinema.”
The actress noted that director Colin Trevorrow defended her when she did her own stunts in films. And in the third film, it was because there were so many women cast that Colin felt really passionately about safeguarding me… because “We need to ask Bryce to reduce weight” came up again.
‘There are plenty of different kinds of women on this globe and there are lots of different kinds of women in our picture,’ he said, and I got to do so many stunts that wouldn’t have been possible if I had been dieting, she explained.
The 44-year-old “Help” star said she was “thrilled” to be able to perform stunts using her body’s “full strength,” adding that she hoped it would encourage other directors to place less emphasis on women’s weight and more on their abilities. With the likes of DeWanda Wise, Chris Pratt, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill, Howard is in good company in this film.
Wise agreed with her co-star and talked about the pressure to transform her figure for the sci-fi thriller. Wise, 38, said, “It’s always something.” Kayla having muscle, being a woman, and looking like a woman were met with resistance. It’s relentless and impossible.”The actresses say there were “more women than guys” in the movie, but Howard thinks that’s “uncommon.”
The actress-turned-director mentioned losing weight for “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” five years ago.She informed us in 2017 that she was working hard because she gained 35 pounds for “Black Mirror.” So I’m becoming fitter. Howard gained weight to play an eating disorder patient in the Netflix show.
