'He is not a commodity!' Bryce Dallas Howard on the fascination with Chris Pratt's perfect abs... but he says 'my job is being a prop!'
When promoting a movie, every actress knows to expect questions about diet and fitness regimes.
But the tables were turned when Bryce Dallas Howard, 36, and Chris Pratt, 38, began promoting Jurassic World together.
Instead of Bryce, it was hunky Pratt who was the focus - to her surprise.?
'He is not a commodity!' Bryce Dallas Howard on the fascination with Chris Prat's perfect abs... but he says 'my job is being a prop!'
Not bothered: Pratt?joked: 'I feel at least a third of my job is being a prop. I am a puppet'
Speaking on the Ellen DeGeneres show, she explained: 'As a woman, when you're doing interviews and you're doing an action film you kind of steal yourself for all the annoying questions.'
But, she said, this wasn't the case. 'When I'm doing an interview with Chris he just basically gets harassed about that stuff.
'At the beginning I was like "This is really refreshing!' and by like the fifth or six time I was like "His body is not a commodity. He's a human being with thoughts and ideas and goals. Don't just talk about his abs!".'?

But Chris said he 'understood' the interest.
He joked: 'I feel at least a third of my job is being a prop. I am a puppet.?
'I get to say stuff that other people come up with a stand in an area that someone has already lit. And if that gets me really fun fishing trips and a cool car I'll do it.'
Hard at it:?The two co-starred in Jurassic World, and are now promoting the follow up - Jurassic World 2, set to be released in June next year
The two co-starred in Jurassic World, and are now promoting the follow up - Jurassic World 2, set to be released in June next year.
They said working together had an unexpected benefit - as their five-year-old children had become close friends.?
'They really have an incredible friendship,' said Bryce.
Pratt, who split from wife Anna Faris earlier this year, said the film had finally got his son Jack excited about his dad's career.?
'He doesn't really care that I'm an actor. But when I brought him on set and he was able to climb on top of an electronic T-Rex, he was like "OK dad, this is really cool."'
