Bryce Dallas Howard Was Asked to Lose Weight Before Filming ‘Jurassic 3’ but Director Protected Her



Howard was asked to lose weight before filming “Jurassic World Dominion,”
She said her weight has often been a topic of discussion among studio executives.
That conversation came up again before shooting “Dominion.”
The actor credits director Colin Trevorrow with rejecting such demands.

What being in this third film allowed, how do I say this, how do I say this, how do I say this…[I’ve] been asked to not use my natural body in cinema. On the third movie, it was actually because there were so many women cast, it was something that Colin felt very strongly about in terms of protecting me…because the conversation came up again, ‘We need to ask Bryce to lose weight.' Colin was like, ‘There are lots of different kinds of women on this planet and there are lots of different kinds of women in our film,' I got to do so many stunts that wouldn’t have been possible if I had been dieting.”
