Hollywood actress Bryce Dallas Howard has revealed her reasons behind wanting to play the evil character, Hilly Holbrook in the forthcoming movie The Help. Bryce also admitted that she had not even read the book before auditioning for the role.
Howard explained, It started off for me being really straightforward. I read the script and hadn’t read the book. There were so many incredible female roles. Of course I loved the role of Hilly and typically I don’t get offered those roles. I auditioned for Hilly, got asked to do it, and at that point I read the book.”
She added, “The book unto itself is really a phenomenon. There are a lot of passionate people who are really devoted to this story being told correctly, so the more I got involved in it, the more I became one of those people.” The Help is already out in the US and is released in the UK on October 28.
