Bryce Dallas Howard Interview – Pete’s Dragon – “I like playing female characters who have a purpose beyond the eye candy”
Bryce Dallas Howard is often cast as a repressed, neurotic control freak. Just look at her previous work in The Help, 50/50 and Jurassic World.
Today, she’s buoyant, relaxed and jovial. And making a concerted effort to restrict her swearing.
Are you a feminist when it comes to your work?
HOWARD: I like playing female characters who have a purpose, beyond, I’m going to say this very respectfully, beyond oh I just can’t, beyond the eye candy. That’s is not who I am, I’m a character actor. That’s not to say I feel unattractive, I’m happy with everything but that’s not my strength. The sexy girl, that’s not my strength.
