Bryce Dallas Howard says she was paid lower than Chris Pratt for ‘Jurassic World’ movies


In case you have been satisfied in any other case, Bryce Dallas Howard reviews that the gender pay hole isn’t extinct.

The actress, talking to Insider, mentioned she was paid “so much less” than her co-star Chris Pratt for his or her work within the “Jurassic World” movies, launched in 2015, 2018 and 2022.

“When I started negotiating for ‘Jurassic,’ it was 2014, and it was a different world, and I was at a great disadvantage,” she mentioned. “And, unfortunately, you have to sign up for three movies, and so your deals are set.”

Ultimately, she mentioned, she mentioned the disparity with Pratt, who took motion to get his co-star equal phrases on different franchise-related alternatives, like video games and theme park rides.

“He literally told me: ‘You guys don’t even have to do anything. I’m gonna do all the negotiating. We’re gonna be paid the same, and you don’t have to think about this, Bryce,’” Howard mentioned. “And I love him so much for doing that. I really do, because I’ve been paid more for those kinds of things than I ever was for the movie.”

CNN has reached out to Howard’s consultant for additional remark.

Within the movies, Howard stars as Claire Dearing, the Jurassic World operations supervisor, and Pratt performs Owen Grady, a Velociraptor skilled and dinosaur handler.

“Jurassic World: Dominion,” the sixth movie within the Jurassic Park franchise, introduced in an estimated $143.3 million in its opening weekend.
