Bryce Dallas Howard: It's 'important' to recognise women in action movies
Bryce Dallas Howard thinks recognising women in action films is "important".
The 'Jurassic World' star - who was nominated for Best Actress in an Action Movie at last night's (17.01.16) Critics' Choice Awards - lost out to the gong in favour of Charlize Theron but is feeling positive about the success of the category itself in the future.
She told Entertainment Tonight: "I love that there's a category like this. It's very cool, it's important. When I said it's important, what I mean is that in films today, 31 per cent of speaking roles go to women, where 69 percent go to men. In action films, it's 23 percent. The fact that there's a category that acknowledges that, female actors in an action film, it's cool."
Meanwhile, the 34-year-old actress previously revealed she is proud of herself for running away from dinosaurs whilst wearing high heels.
She shared: "If too much attention is called to it, it's like, 'Oh, man - maybe I did something wrong, because they're paying attention to the thing that they really shouldn't be paying attention to', but in this case, I loved it because I was like, 'Yeah! Damn right I ran in heels!'"
