Bryce Dallas Howard



I'm sorry for the disappearing act. The past week has been incredibly stressful.

I don't want to dwell on it, so instead I will gush about one of my favorite people: Bryce Dallas Howard.



This 29-year-old is one of the few celebrities I absolutely adore inside and out. Lucille Ball may be Hollywood's favorite red-head, but Bryce is definitely mine.

I'm not saying this just because she's a sweetheart in all her interviews and television appearances. I'm saying this from experience. I actually briefly met her in 2003 (before she had done film) when she starred in Tartuffe on Broadway. I also ran into her at a press event for The Village a year later and got her autograph! Both times I was shocked by her genuine kindness.



I mean, she has every right to be a snob. Her father is the famous Hollywood director, Ron Howard, and her godfather is The Fonz. Those two things make her the coolest person in the world, pretty much.

But Bryce has spent her entire life being fairly humble. Instead of using her father's name to make it in showbiz ten years ago, Bryce did what any other teenager would do and enrolled in the drama program at New York University. She kept her Hollywood connections a secret from her friends and professors. Her talent alone led her to several plays on Broadway, where M. Night Shyamalan discovered her for his film, The Village. He had no idea who her father was when he offered her the lead role.



Since her premiere as Ivy in The Village, she has starred in numerous films, such as Lady in the Water, As You Like It, and Terminator Salvation.

But you might also recognize her in:

Spider-Man 3


and

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse


When she's not busy starring in movies, Bryce enjoys spending her time being utterly fabulous. She is married to her college sweetheart and they have a three-year-old son together. Her close friends include Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Kirsten Dunst.

Here are some of my favorite photos of Bryce:









Isn't she gorgeous?!

I hope you will all go out and rent a couple of her films. She is such a stunning actress and I have no doubt an Oscar (or two) is in her future.

Also, I hope you all are having a wonderful week!

Sorry you're having a bad week, big virtual love on the way to you!
I didn't think I'd heard of Bryce but I did watch The Village and do remember now. What a versatile and beautiful woman she is. Love the big fifties skirt with the trucker jacket.

Sherin said...

Having the Fonz as a godfather definitely makes her so cool and she seem really nice. I saw her in The Village and Spiderman 3 and thought she was great in both!

Laura Tenshi said...

Wow, she is a beauty. Can't believe she accomplished so many things on her own and refused to take advantage of her relations. Thumbs up for that. I also like how her life is in order, no scandals just a happily married young mother.

Leia said...

She is rather gorgeous. Sending you unstressful positive vibes :)

I think she is absolutely stunning. She ALWAYS looks amazing!! I love her in all her movies!! You met her? Your so lucky!! That's so cute that she married her college sweetheart! I definitely admire her!

Oh Jen sorry to hear this week was stressful! I hope everything is okay! *Hugs*

Robin said...

What a great choice! She really is absolutely stunning.

I'm really glad I'm not friends with Jake Gyllenhal though. I would fall utterly in love and try to run away with him.

LyddieGal said...

Wow, I'm in love with that first photo!
It's so cool you got to meet your Hollywood girl crush, and even better that she was awesome.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Bren said...

That last image of her is stunning!!!
I've always been a fan of hers as well. I was opposed to replacing Rachelle Lafevre in the Twilight series, but thought that Bryce was a great choice!

Hope you're having a great week!

Nikosmommy said...

I Love BDH too! Though I don't really know why they needed to replace the "Victoria" character in Eclipse with her??? Maybe she offered more star appeal?

Savvy Gal said...

Oh I love the last picture.

Bionica said...

She is really cool!!!

pilgrimchick said...

Until I got to the end of your post, I actually had no idea who she is. I am glad to hear that she is a good, humble person--seems to be a disappearing breed these days among Hollywood stars.

The Urban Fashion Gal said...

Wow I love all the different tulle colors in the first photo.

beckyxoxo said...

gleenn said...

I enjoyed reading this post of yours a lot, girl. She's a very inspiring person. I can't believe she's Victoria of Eclipse. I'm kind of surprised. But it's good to know a lot about her through your fabulous post. :)
