Bryce Dallas Howard, who played Claire in Jurassic World, said that film executives were unhappy with her weight.
Bryce Dallas Howard was in three very successful Jurassic World movies, but she has talked about some scary things that happened behind the scenes.
Bryce Dallas Howard said that the people in charge of making the Jurassic World trilogy, which was a huge hit, had problems with her body and her weight.
“How do I say…?” “I’ve been told not to use my natural body in movies,” the actress who played Claire Dearing in the three movies told Metro in a Friday article.
The US actress, who did her own stunts in the popular series, said that director Colin Trevorrow was the one who stood up for her.
“And on the third movie, it was because there were so many women in the cast that Colin was very concerned about protecting me… We need to tell Bryce to lose weight again because we talked about it again.”
She went on, “He told me, ‘There are many different kinds of women on this planet, and there are many different kinds of women in our movie.’ I got to do so many stunts that I wouldn’t have been able to do if I had been dieting.
The 44-year-old star of “The Help” said she was “thrilled” to be able to do stunts with her body at “maximum strength.” She hopes that this will encourage other directors to focus less on women’s weight and more on their skills.
Howard, DeWanda Wise, Chris Pratt, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill all have roles in the movie.
Wise, who was also in the interview, agreed with her co-star and talked about how she felt pressured to change her body for the sci-fi movie role of Kayla Watts.
“It’s always something,” said Wise, who is 38. “There was a lot of opposition to Kayla having muscles and to her looking like a woman. It’s everywhere, and it’s never-ending and impossible.”
Even though the actresses say there were “more women than men” in the movie, Howard says it’s still “rare” to see a set with so many different kinds of people.
The actress-turned-director has talked in the past about how hard it was for her to lose weight for her role in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which came out five years ago.
In 2017, she told us, “I’m doing a lot of training for it because I gained 35 pounds (16 kg) for Black Mirror.” “So I’m just getting ready to be a bit more athletic.”
Howard put on weight so she could play a woman with an eating disorder in the famous Netflix show.
