Bryce Dallas Howard On Chris Pratt Pay Disparity

They both play an arguably equal role in the franchise, but in 2018 Variety reported that Bryce was paid $2 million less than Chris for that year’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom — $8 million to his $10 million, specifically.

In a new interview with Insider, Bryce confirmed that there was pay disparity between her and Chris — and that it was far more sizable than previously reported.

“The reports were so interesting because I was paid so much less than the reports even said, so much less,” she told the publication.

Bryce explained that negotiations for the Jurassic World films started in 2014, and that it was a “different world” where she found herself at a “great disadvantage” when it came to pay equality.

“And, unfortunately, you have to sign up for three movies and so your deals are set,” she explained regarding the ability to re-negotiate later on.

Bryce also said that Chris offered his help and support when it came to the disparity in their pay.

“What I will say,” she explained, “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 trading. We’re gonna be paid the same and you don’t have to think about this, Bryce.’”

“I love him so much for doing that,” she added. “I really do, because I’ve been paid more for those kinds of things than I ever was for the movie.”
