We've often seen couples talk about each other in such a loving, kind way but Chris and Bryce's exchanges have us believe that they almost are.
Anyone who didn't know Chris Pratt had a wife during Jurassic World's release would have assumed that he's dating his co-star Bryce Dallas Howard. Their chemistry was undeniable. Bryce looked elegant and sophisticated like a Hollywood actress from the 40s and Chris was rugged, strong and had a kind heart towards all the dinosaurs in the film.
Their on-screen chemistry played out like a romantic comedy. Bryce, a dinosaur park operations manager, was stuffy, clinical in her approach towards life and deeply cynical of love, family and motherhood. That was, until she met Chris, who played a charming velociraptor trainer with a loving heart.
Although their characters were tropes usually found in action genres, Chris and Bryce's relationship stood out because they introduced intimacy into their shared screen space. And that closeness was born out of a blossoming friendship off-screen. Chris and Bryce shared a friendship that was defined by mutual admiration, understanding and kindness and it remains so, even to this day.
They are charming whenever they've appeared off-screen to promote their films Jurassic World and now its sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The co-stars graced The Ellen Show and made a great team when they played charades with the talk show host. It almost felt like they'd forgotten about the cameras and had a great time bringing out their best goofy self, something that Chris enjoys doing.
To be honest, the secret to a solid relationship invariably lies in friendship. And that defines Chris and Bryce's relationship. Even though they aren't dating, they make us wish that they were because they seem to have a lot of love and respect for each other.
Bryce quickly defended Chris when rumours suggested that there's a rift between them. The mom of two tweeted, "That rumor is so not true!!! I worship Chris! We’re shooting next year and counting the days!!!"
He echoed her thoughts and said in his own tweet, "Love you too Bryce! Just reading the script right now! So awesome! Round two baby!!!" Chris also told a fan, "People are stupid. And mean. Don’t buy it for a second. BDH is my spirit animal. I’d go to the mat for her and I know she feels the same."
Of course, she would. She seems to know him as intimately as a lover does. She told Out Magazine that her co-star is a "beautiful person" who isn't really aware of how talented and charismatic he is. "He’s just, like, the best guy. There’s nothing more handsome than a humble heart," she said.
Imagine being in that room and seeing the iconic duo that is Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt in real life right there in front of you I’d be dead— mariah is excited for JWFK!! || 53 (@_jurassicClaire) December 4, 2017
