“When I started trading for ‘Jurassic,’ it was in 2014, and it was a different world, and I was at a huge disadvantage,” she said. “And, unfortunately, you have to sign up for three movies, so your offers are set.”
Eventually, she says, she discussed the disparity with Pratt, who took steps to get her co-star on a level playing field on other franchise-related opportunities, like games and theme park rides. .
“He literally said to me, ‘You don’t even have to do anything. I will do all the negotiation. We’re going to get paid the same, and you don’t have to think about it, Bryce,'” Howard said. “And I love him so much for doing that. Really, because I got paid more for that stuff than I ever got paid for the movie.”
CNN has reached out to Howard’s rep for further comment.
In the films, Howard plays Jurassic World’s head of operations Claire Dearing, and Pratt plays Owen Grady, a velociraptor expert and dinosaur trainer.
“Jurassic World: Dominion,” the sixth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, grossed an estimated $143.3 million in its opening weekend.
