How much was Bryce Dallas Howard paid for 'Jurassic World'? Actress says Chris Pratt made sure she received equal pay
'The reports were so interesting because I was paid so much less than the reports even said, so much less,' she said
'Jurassic World' star Bryce Dallas Howard opened up about how he was paid "so much less" than her co-star Chris Pratt, but the 'Terminal List' star made sure that she would receive equal pay. The 41-year-old said she loved Pratt for doing it when they worked on the trilogy together.
Talking to Insider, Howard explained the larger pay gap. "The reports were so interesting because I was paid so much less than the reports even said, so much less," she said. "When I started negotiating for Jurassic, it was 2014, and it was a different world, and I was at a great disadvantage. And, unfortunately, you have to sign up for three movies, and so your deals are set."
How much was Bryce Dallas Howard paid for 'Jurassic World' trilogy?
Per a report by Variety in 2018, Bryce had reportedly made $8 million for 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom', while Pratt made $10 million. While the duo was billed as the key stars in the movie, there was still a difference when it came to their respective salaries. The actress told Insider that she never had the upper hand in negotiating when signing for the 'Jurassic' projects.
"What I will say is that Chris and I have discussed it, and whenever there was an opportunity to move the needle on stuff that hadn't been already negotiated, like a game or a ride, 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.'' She also added, "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." Howard plays Claire Dearing, the Jurassic World operations manager, while Pratt plays Owen Grady, a Velociraptor expert, and dinosaur handler.
