During a new interview with the British newspaper Meter, actress Bryce Dallas Howard revealed that Universal Studios executives asked her to lose weight before filming Jurassic World: Dominion, which marked his third appearance in the franchise Jurassic World.
In addition, the 45-year-old actress said that her weight was often a topic of discussion among movie studio executives, so the fact that the conversation resurfaced before filming the third installment was not news to her.
How would I put this… I was asked not to use my ‘natural body’ in movies. Such conversations and ‘concerns’ from studio executives have also been present throughout the production of the ‘Jurassic World’ series.
Fortunately, director Colin Trevorrow defended his leading lady against the studio’s weight-loss lawsuits with the best argument.
In the third film there were a lot of women in the cast, it was something that Colin was very adamant about in terms of protecting me. He said: ‘There are many different types of women on this planet and there are many different types of women in our film.’
Satisfied with her performance reflected in the final result of the film, Bryce assured that it would not have been possible to shoot the action scenes if she had been on a diet to lose weight.
I had to do a lot of action scenes that would not have been possible if I had been on a diet. I’m really excited about all the action scenes I had to do, I had to do them with my body, which was at full strength.
It should be noted that this is not the first time that the star of Crossing stories is honest about her experience as a woman on the set of the movies of Jurassic WorldWell, Universal’s successful franchise has been a constant struggle for Bryce.
