Bryce Dallas Howard was pressured to lose weight for ‘Jurassic World’ movies

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

“How do I say this … [I’ve] been asked to not use my natural body in cinema,” the actress, who played Claire Dearing in the movie, told Metro in an article published on Thursday.

The actress, who performed her own stunts in the movies, added that it was director Colin Trevorrow who stood up for her.

“And 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.’”

She continued, “He 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’ and I got to do so many stunts that wouldn’t have been possible if I had been dieting.”

The “Help” star, 44, noted that she was “thrilled” to be able to do stunts with her body at “maximum strength” and hopes it pushes other directors to focus less on women’s weight and more on their ability.

Howard stars in the star-studded 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 talked about the pressures she felt to change her body while playing Kayla Watts in the sci-fi film.

“It’s always something,” Wise, 38, told the outlet. “There was a lot of resistance to Kayla having muscle, to what it means to be a woman, look like a woman. It’s just every side, it’s relentless and impossible.”

Although the actresses say there were “more women than men” who starred in the movie, Howard says it’s still “uncommon” to see sets with that kind of diversity.

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

“I am doing a lot of training for it because I gained 35 pounds for ‘Black Mirror,’ ” she told us in 2017. “So I am just getting ready to be a bit more athletic.”

Howard had gained weight for the iconic Netflix series in order to play a woman struggling with an eating disorder.
