INSTYLE – Can’t decide on your next travel destination? Bryce Dallas Howard recommends New Zealand. Thanks to her Jurassic World shooting schedule, which has taken her to the country for months at a time since the first film’s release in 2015, she has quickly moved from “tourist” to “semi-local.” When she’s not shooting alongside her Jurassic World co-star Chris Pratt (the sequel hits theaters in 2018), you can find her exploring New Zealand’s vast green hills, breathtaking oceans, and hip shops.
“New Zealand is this magical dreamland,” she tells InStyle. “It’s like a utopia where the people radiate kindness and the adventures of the natural world call to you.”
If that’s not enough to convince you, Howard, who’s now a brand ambassador for Tourism New Zealand, shares her top five secret spots to explore. Check them out below.
1. Paper Plane in Mount Maunganui
“I wish I could live in this store!” Howard says. “It’s the brick-and-mortar of one of New Zealand’s coolest online stores (paperplanestore.com). In essence, it’s a carefully curated collection of very stylish and beautiful products. If you are in the neighborhood and want to pile on a gluttony of cuteness, visit Sugar Town Cake Parlour, too. The name says it all.”
2. Commonsense Organics in Wellington
“In Wellington, I visit Commonplace Organics daily,” she tells us. “It’s your one-stop, ethical grocery shop. I felt like I was part of a community whenever I was in there, and marveled at the variety and selection. There are many New Zealand products I’m dying to export. Plus, its next door neighbor, Hot Yoga of New Zealand, complements Commonsense quite nicely.”
3. East Cape
“One of the most under-visited places in New Zealand is the East Cape,” she says. “It’s the first in the world to welcome the sunrise, which makes for a magical experience. Not many tourists visit since it’s a region off the beaten track, but it’s just as beautiful as the rest of the country.”
4. Aoraki Mackenzie Dark Sky Reserve
“The most incredible place to see stars and the Southern Lights in New Zealand is the Aoraki Mackenzie Dark Sky Reserve,” she says. “It’s a breathtaking view of heaven.”
5. Hokitika Gorge
“If you want to see water that’s naturally the color of blue Gatorade, make your way to Hokitika Gorge,” she says. “These stunning glacial pools can be viewed from fun swing bridges and short trails built for exploring.”
It has been announced that Bryce will present at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards. The 73rd Golden Globe Awards will air on Sunday, January 10, at 8pm PT.

Being the daughter of Ron Howard, Bryce Dallas Howard could be considered Hollywood royalty, but you would never know it. In person she is probably one of the most down to earth people you could ever meet. Howard, who plays Gwen Stacy in ‘Spider-Man 3’, was thrilled to take on the role. “I was so excited. I love this franchise. I was a huge fan of the first film. When I saw the second film I was completely blown away. I liked it better than the first, which I didn’t think was possible. I became one of those people who started going on the Internet seeing what are the rumors and what’s going on. When I found out they were having another female character I was all over that.”
Howard did a great deal of prep for the role, but in her research of the character she found a few surprises. “When I did start doing research and a picture popped on the Internet, I thought, are you serious? They really want to cast me? She has a specific look and I never envisioned myself doing or being able to do. There were a lot of hair and make-up meetings.” Howard who is a natural redhead had to go blonde for the film. So do blondes have more fun? “Well I feel comfortable as a red-head because that what I am naturally, but I had fun getting to do it. I got a lot of attention at grocery stores, like a lot of people coming up to me saying do you need some help ma’am.”
In the film there is an intense action sequence that Howard had to prepare for, that took months to shoot. “That was so much fun to shoot. They built a three or four story structure inside a sound stage that would just collapse and they would set it all back up again. They put a harness on me, but they really let me fall. I was scared so there was no acting involved in that scene literally.”
