Awards season is over — but not for Bryce Dallas Howard.
The actress is finishing up a gig as one of the guest judges for the second annual Moet Moment Film Festival, a short film competition sponsored by the champagne brand. On the heels of news that the due date for entries has been extended to March 27 — with a winner scheduled to be revealed at a Tribeca Film Festival dinner party on April 26 — The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Howard, a task easier said than done.
She’s in the thick of filming the as-yet untitled sequel to Jurassic World, reprising her role as Claire in the anticipated J.A. Bayona-directed flick alongside Chris Pratt. But during a break on set, the 35-year-old was game to give updates on the new installment, why she loves Beyonce so much and what it means to her to be dubbed the “Everywoman’s Fashion Icon” by Vanity Fair.
You’re back at work now filming the sequel to Jurassic World. I know you’re working long days — thank you for fitting in this interview — so what is it like to be back in those shoes? And are they high heels again?
Making a Jurassic film is challenging, exhilarating and most importantly fun. No matter the footwear, Claire is a woman who gets things done. I’m so excited to be doing it a second time. Plus Chris Pratt is here every day doing his spontaneous dance parties — what’s better than that?
