Bryce Dallas Howard asked to lose weight for Jurassic World

Bryce Dallas Howard has revealed that the Jurassic World trilogy executives had issues with her body and weight.

“How should I put it… [I’ve] I was asked not to use my natural body in the movies,” the actress, who played Claire Dearing in the film, said in an article published Thursday.

The actress, who herself performed stunts in films, added that director Colin Trevorrow stood up for her.

“And in the third film, actually, it was because there were so many women in the cast, it was something that Colin felt very protective of me … because the conversation came up again: “We need to ask Bryce lose weight. ‘”

She continued, “He said, ‘There are a lot of different women on this planet, and there are a lot of different women in our film,’ and I had to do so many stunts that wouldn’t be possible if I was on a diet.”

The 44-year-old “Help” star said she was “thrilled” to be able to perform stunts with her body’s “maximum strength” and hopes it will encourage other directors to focus less on women’s weight and more on their abilities.

Howard stars in the all-star film alongside DeWanda Wise, Chris Pratt, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill.

Wise, who was also in the interview, agreed with her co-star and spoke about the pressure she felt to change her body while playing Kayla Watts in the sci-fi film.

“It’s always something,” Wise, 38, said. “There was a lot of resistance to Kayla having muscles, to what it means to be a woman, to look like a woman. It’s just from every angle, it’s ruthless and impossible.”

Although the actresses say there are “more women than men” in the film, Howard says it’s still “unusual” to see such a variety of sets.

The actress-turned-director previously mentioned the pressure she faced to lose weight for her role in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom five years ago.

“I work out a lot because I gained 35 pounds for Black Mirror,” she told us in 2017. “So I’m just getting ready to get a little more athletic.”

Howard gained weight for the cult Netflix series to play a woman struggling with an eating disorder.
