Bryce Dallas Howard says she was paid ‘so much less’ than ‘Jurassic World’ co-star Chris Pratt

Bryce Dallas Howard is speaking out about the wage disparity in her favor and that of the “Jurassic World” co-star, Chris Pratt.
In an exclusive conversation with Insider, the actress outlined how she earned “so little” than Pratt in spite of a 2018 report by Variety which claimed she earned 2 million lower than Pratt who earned $10 million from the second “Jurassic World” film.

“The reports were fascinating because I was paid significantly less than what the reports claimed,” Howard said. “When I started to negotiate for ‘Jurassic’ it was 2014 but it was a completely different world which put me at a major disadvantage. It’s true that you must sign up for three films which mean that your contracts are already in place.”

Howard admitted to having a discussion about the disparity in pay for this film in conversation with Pratt. Since she was legally bound by the amount she was expected to receive from the film, Pratt pushed her to be paid the same amount on other franchise opportunities, including spinoff games, theme-park rides, and even theme parks.

“I really admire him for his work,” Howard said. “I truly do, since I’ve been paid more for these kinds of things than ever have been for the film.”

She said, “Whenever there was a chance to make a difference on something that hadn’t already settled, such as the game or ride, he simply said to me: “You don’t have to perform anything. I’ll do all the negotiation. We’ll be paid the same amount, and you don’t need the thought of it.'”

“I really admire him for that,” Howard said. “I am really grateful, as I’ve been paid more for these types of things than I ever have been for the film.”

She said, “Whenever there was an opportunity to change the course in a matter that wasn’t already settled, like the game or ride, he said: ‘You don’t have to even perform anything. I’ll handle all the negotiations. We’ll be paid the same amount, and you don’t need the thought of it.'”

Howard is Claire Dearing in the “Jurassic World” trilogy. “Jurassic World Dominion”,” the final film in the trilogy, debuted in theaters in June.

In the year 2018, Howard spoke out about the Hollywood Gender Pay Gap in Redbook calling the gap “astronomical.”

“But I would like people to know that this is the lives of successful female celebrities,” she said. “What we are paid is completely, totally vastly different from the amount male stars are paid. For women of color, it’s about 100 times more.”
