Bryce Dallas Howard Reveals She Has to Lose Weight For 'Jurassic World' Movies

Bryce Dallas Howard has spoken out about her weight loss efforts in several interviews. The actress revealed she was pressured to lose weight before filming “Jurassic World Dominion” and “Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom,” as well as other projects. She spoke about how Hollywood still holds women to a superficial standard regarding beauty and representation.

In an interview with Metro magazine, Bryce discussed her past weight loss efforts. She says she was asked to lose weight before filming “Dominion” and “Fallen Kingdom,” and that her weight has been a topic among studio executives.  The actress thanked filmmaker Colin Trevorrow for turning down these requests.

“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,” Bryce said.

She added, “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.’”

Bryce did not diet during her time on the set of “Jurassic World Dominion” or in the third movie. Instead, she used her natural body. And the actress hopes her actions show filmmakers what is possible when they include female actors.

Bryce Dallas Howard Weight Gain For 'Black Mirror'

Bryce gained 35 pounds for her role in Netflix’s “Black Mirror.” Her character is obsessed with social media and has body image issues. In her role, the actress learned to appreciate her body.

In the episode “Nosedive,” the main character, Lacie, is battling a bad eating disorder. Her attempts to fit into a dress that’s only a size four are taking a toll on her body. Bryce eventually put on 30 pounds for the job, and she gave her reasons for doing so.

“Society puts all this scrutiny on women’s bodies, which in a way serves to make us go insane and distract us from what’s really important. If you allow your spirit to be broken by trying to conform in ways that are not even possible, you will be off track for your entire life, and you will lose track of what is important in every area. That’s insanity,” the actress said.

She continues, “It was really important for me to show that this insecurity that she feels in the world is because she’s not comfortable in her own skin. She’s not accepting herself for who she is. I wanted it be about image, and about how people want to control what other people think about them by trying to control themselves in ways that are harmful.”
