Playing Bryce Dallas Howard on the Huge Mistake Her Dad Ron Made With 'Jurassic World'

Sometimes having proud parents isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard's dad, Ron Howard, accidentally broke the film's casting news with an innocent tweet in January 2014 when he posted a photo of Bryce and Chris Pratt on a red carpet.

Bryce opened up to ET about the aftermath of her father's well-intentioned Twitter fail.

"My dad took a picture of [me and Chris Pratt] together and then he tweeted '[Bryce and Chris meet for the 1st time on red carpet. They will be co-stars in next Jurassic.]'" Bryce told ET. "He comes back and he's like, 'There's a lot of news outlets picking up on this tweet. Was it not announced yet?' And I was like, 'No, it wasn't, Dad! It wasn't announced.' You got to watch out for a proud parent on Twitter."

Ron later apologized for the guff and was quickly forgiven by the cast and studio. After the poorly-timed tweet, it was another two weeks before Pratt confirmed the casting.

Jurassic World, which also stars Judy Greer and Jake Johnson, takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park. Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park called Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by the late Dr. John Hammond.
