Jurassic World 2: Bryce Dallas Howard won’t wear high heels, she says

Posted on

One of the most talked-about parts of Jurassic World this summer wasn’t the man-eating Indominus rex or Chris Pratt and his team of raptors; it was Bryce Dallas Howard’s high heels. Her character Claire’s choice of footwear spawned parodies and even prompted Pratt to make an attempt at sprinting in heels. But in a new interview with Collider, Howard said director Colin Trevorrow has promised her that Claire will be getting some more sensible shoes in the sequel.

 “The way that Colin told me that the sequel was happening, like when it got greenlit and I was going to be in it, he texted me: #NoHeels2018,” she told Collider.

Howard said she’s glad people appreciated how difficult it was for her to trek through the jungle in a sky-high pair of heels, but she also added that it made sense for Claire as a character. “I was like, of course it’s illogical for her to be in heels in the jungle,” Howard said. “She never intended to go in the jungle. And if she was in flats, that would be a cheat. That would be something where it’s like, oh, she managed to get her hands on some flats. No, Claire never thought she was going to end up traipsing through the jungle, let alone outrunning a T. rex.”

Jurassic World 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 22, 2018. Watch the full interview with Howard below.
