Though Bryce Dallas Howard's father, Ron Howard, made his mark in Happy Days, she admitted fame doesn't come easy to her.
“I’m not a natural when it comes to press…it’s hard for me to get dressed up for the red carpet and do the whole circuit. I’ll never forget the time I was with Tom Cruise in Japan for a movie, and he literally got sucked up by the crowd while he was doing press — they literally just surrounded him, and he disappeared. It was scary," the actress, 42, said in an interview with New Beauty.
"So, most of the time, all that makes me feel uncomfortable. Like, I’m just standing there, and people are looking at me. I feel most beautiful when I get to be a palette for incredible, brilliant makeup and hair artists … but there have been instances where I’ve literally been in the clearance section of a department store grabbing something to wear at the last minute," she continued.
The red-headed beauty shared the she loves to change up her look every once in a while.
"I do best when I give in and let my glam team do their thing — when I let them do the exact opposite of a look I think I want or that I normally do. I love that Jurassic World Los Angeles premiere look they did — slicked back hair, superdark lip. I would never normally think of that, and I just sat back, they did their thing and it turned out beautifully. It’s great to work with such talented people in this industry," she noted.
The Pete's Dragon star explained what does come natural to her: acting.
“Can you believe I got to work with Claudia Schiffer on this one! I was texting the Claudia Schiffer — the supermodel — to go over some of the creative; I still can’t believe it. Claudia Schiffer! She oversaw the overall creative direction and the styling. Like I said, I’m really into all the beauty-style details that get you into character, so it was fun to collaborate together. We went back and forth on a bunch of things. I was constantly sending her messages like, ‘Would Elly wear this? What do you think about this?’ We really got into it," she said, referring to her new flick Argylle, a spy action–comedy film.
