Bryce Dallas Howard speaks out about being asked to lose weight for her role in Jurassic World Dominion.
The Lady in the water star, 41, spoke to Subway this week on the experience of making the latest movie in the dinosaur franchise. She explained that she was told not to have her “natural body” during the filming and that she needed to shed pounds. However, director Colin Trevorrow was “strong” behind Howard.
“[Colin] said, ‘There are many different kinds of women on this planet and there are many different kinds of women in our film,'” the actress explained. “I have to do so many stunts that wouldn’t have been possible if I was on a diet.”
She added: “I’m really happy [at] all the action I had to do, and I’ve had to do it with my body, she was at her maximum strength, and I hope it’s just another indication of what’s possible.”
Howard recently spoke to Yahoo Life’s Deglazed series about how her diet has changed over the years. While she said that in her previous life she was a vegan raw foodist for many years, now she covers a wider range of foods.
“Breakfast is blueberry pancakes, hash browns and bacon,” she explained. “I like to start my day big.”
In July 2020, Howard showed off the bruises she had sustained filming the action movie’s intense stunts. She spoke earlier about how they work on Jurassic World Dominion – the first major studio movie to be filmed again after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic – made sure the set was as safe and comfortable as possible for the actors.
“I’m very grateful to have a job,” she shared on SiriusXM’s Weekly entertainment Live. “What feels really good about it is that there’s this daily conversation, daily communication with all the actors, the main crew members, and we’re just being consistent [like]”Okay, how are we going to do this safely?” And make no compromises that could undermine one’s health and well-being.”
