Bryce Dallas Howard reveals she was paid a lot less for Jurassic Park movies than her co-star Chris Pratt

Bryce Dallas Howard has said she was paid “so much less” than Chris Pratt to star in the Jurassic World trilogy, but has revealed that her co-star was a true ally when it came to getting equal pay for get external projects.

The two actors were billed as co-stars in the three action movies, but Variety reported in 2018 that Bryce, $41, made $8 million for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, while Chris, $43, made $10 million.

However, the Screen Actors Guild honoree told Insider that the pay gap is much larger, explaining, “The reports were so interesting because I was paid so much less than the reports said, so much less.”

Although Bryce made her name in the action film Terminator Salvation and won the SAG and several other awards for her work on The Help, she said she didn’t have the upper hand when she signed on for the dinosaur-powered project.

“When I first started negotiating for Jurassic it was 2014 and it was a different world and I was at a huge disadvantage. And unfortunately you have to sign up for three films, so your offers are set.’

Rather than keep quiet about the inequality, the Pete’s Dragon actress spoke up with her co-star, and the Guardians Of The Galaxy star has engaged in other ways to promote pay equity, including wildlife park rides and video games.

“What I want to say is that Chris and I talked about it, and whenever there was an opportunity to move the needle over things that weren’t already negotiated, like a game or a ride, he literally said to me, ‘ You guys put it on I don’t even have to do anything. I’ll do all the negotiations. We’re getting paid right away, and you don’t have to think about it, Bryce.”

“I love him so much for that. I really do because I’ve been paid more for stuff like this than I’ve ever been paid for the film.”

The affection between the two stars, who have worked countless hours together, is mutual.

In July, Chris posted a sweet Instagram tribute to Bryce to mark the success of her latest dinosaur project.

The actor uploaded photos of the two together for his tribute post. One picture showed the glamorous stars standing close together and smiling for a quick selfie at the Hollywood premiere of Jurassic World: Dominion.

The second photo Chris shared showed the pair smiling again in a separate selfie.

He included a caption with the post, explaining how much he’s appreciated working with the talented actress over the years and having the opportunity to tell such a compelling story in the Jurassic World franchise.

“It’s been a month since #JurassicWorldDominion hit theaters and I can’t help but think of my partner through all of this,” he wrote.

“You have been by my side on this crazy ride for over 8 years and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 8 extraordinary years. 3 fantastic films. It was a great honor to share this journey with you,” added Chris.

The two stars have been co-stars since the release of the first Jurassic World film in 2015.

The Help actress also uploaded a post to her own Instagram page in July to thank Chris for speaking to her students for her Nine Muses Lab.

The course is designed to help train students interested in the world of filmmaking who are part of Bryce’s entertainment company called Nine Muses Entertainment.

“Favorite thing #6718 to @prattprattpratt: I can count on him for a belly laugh as much as I do for incredibly insightful advice,” she added in her caption.

“Having a friend like you in my life has been absolutely amazing,” added actress Chris.

During her interview with ET, Bryce admitted that the on-screen kiss the two shared for the first time in the trilogy wasn’t actually scripted.

“It wasn’t a surprise to me,” she explained. “It was a surprise to everyone who was there that day because it wasn’t written.”

The actress then jokingly added, “Here’s a little thing you should know about me. I always compete to kiss Chris Pratt in these movies.

The two actors also have children of their own who are the same age, and during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, they explained that their children are also friends after meeting on set.

Chris explained that one day he asked his son Jack which friend he wanted to have pizza with and he replied “Beatrice,” which is Bryce’s daughter.

“And they will be friends for life,” the Village actress chimed in during the interview with Ellen.
