Even Bryce Dallas Howard turns to her father for advice.
The 39-year-old actress not too long ago made her characteristic movie directorial debut with the Apple TV+ documentary “Dads,” specializing in trendy fatherhood, which features a glimpse into her personal life with her father, Ron Howard.
Howard spoke to Fox Information about how the movie got here to be and recalled her dad, an Oscar-winning director himself, providing up some advice.

“I was open to sharing a more personal side to our family from the get-go because my grandfather had passed away and so much of his legacy was who he was as a father and a grandfather and a great-grandfather,” Howard recalled, noting that she discovered footage that she had beforehand filmed.
“My dad was like, ‘No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Nobody wants to see the movie that is Bryce saying ‘I love my dad,”” she recalled her father saying. “I heard him, but while I was filming, I kept saying we need an expecting father. We need to see a father go through that transformation, going from not having a kid to having a kid.”

Fortunately for Howard, somebody close to and pricey to her was a father-to-be: her brother.
“When I found out that my brother was gonna have a baby with his wife, I was like, ‘Would you be in my documentary?’ And they graciously said yes,” the “Jurassic World” star mentioned. “It just made sense at that point [to include Ron], just if nothing else, to contextualize my brother’s story to include my grandfather and ultimately my dad.”
Bryce went on to say that she was impressed to make the movie as a “product of generations of super devoted, committed, present fathers.”

To make the movie, Howard mentioned that she turned to stand-up comedians — who she referred to as “our modern-day philosophers” — and bloggers in an effort to rejoice “the modern dad.”
