AceShowbiz - Bryce Dallas Howard lifted tyres to get in super shape for the new "Jurassic World" movie, "Fallen Kingdom".
The actress admits she went all out to look great and take on stunts for the upcoming blockbuster - and got in the best shape of her life.
"We would meet up and lift tyres, and it was really fun," she tells Good Housekeeping magazine. "I became focused on achieving the stunts, like Tom Cruise does."
And her character's footwear choices in the sequel allowed Bryce to show off her fitness levels - there were no high heels in the new film.
The actress starred as Claire Dearing, a money driven executive working at a dinosaur themepark in the first movie, and although "Jurassic World" was a huge box office success, fans complained about Bryce's character sporting footwear that was utterly unsuitable for action scenes.
"It was crazy doing this, because I'm in boots and it was so easy," she told Total Film magazine. "I was like, 'Oh s**t, this is two totally different worlds...' There are more stunts and all of that but the challenge of running in heels is real."
In the new movie, Claire now works in dinosaur conservation, and when a volcanic eruption endangers the beasts roaming Isla Nublar, the island where the "Jurassic World" park was based, she has to team up with her ex-lover, dinosaur keeper Owen Grady, played by Chris Pratt.
"Claire is a part of an operation to get these animals off the island," she says. "She doesn't want to see her ex-boyfriend but sometimes you have a job to do."
Meanwhile, Bryce insists you don't have to go to extremes to feel good about yourself - just block out all the negatives and become your own best friend.
"If your girlfriend said, 'I'm so fat!' you would say, 'Please shut up, you're amazing'. You have to be as loyal to yourself as you are to the people you love."
