The Los Angeles premiere of Universal Pictures’ “Jurassic World Dominion” is held on June 6, 2022, in Hollywood, California, and Bryce Dallas Howard is there.
(CNN)- In case you needed further evidence, Bryce Dallas Howard claims that the gender pay gap still exists.
Speaking to Insider, the actress said she earned “so much less” than Chris Pratt for their efforts on the 2015, 2018 and 2022 “Jurassic World” movies.
It was 2014, a new world, and I was at a significant disadvantage when I started negotiating for “Jurassic,” she added. And, regrettably, you have to sign up for three movies, so your agreements are finalised.
Eventually, she said, she brought up the issue with Pratt, who then intervened to ensure that his co-star received equal treatment for additional franchise-related chances, like as video games and amusement park attractions.
“You guys don’t even have to do anything, he said to me in full. All the bargaining will be done by myself. You don’t need to worry about this, Bryce; we’ll both receive the same compensation “Added Howard. “And he has my undying gratitude for doing that. I genuinely believe it since I have received higher compensation for work of that nature than I ever have for a film.”
For more comment, CNN has contacted Howard’s agent.
In the movies, Pratt portrays Owen Grady, a velociraptor specialist and dinosaur, while Howard plays Claire Dearing, the Jurassic World operations manager.
The sixth instalment in the Jurassic Park series, “Jurassic World: Dominion,” earned an estimated $143.3 million over its first weekend.
