What was bigger: the monster dinosaur in Jurassic World or the controversy surrounding Bryce Dallas Howard's high-heeled shoes in the movie?

Both were fairly large, but the latter turned out to be such an issue that director Colin Trevorrow is going to address it in the forthcoming sequel, Jurassic World 2. Howard talked to Collider about the issue surrounding her footwear and admitted that at first she was kind of excited that the audience noticed her uncomfortable heels.

"It stood out to them because it stood out to me, too," she said. "It was crazy!"

Howard at first admitted she was proud of herself for filming in those now-infamous shoes because it was really tough, but then she felt she had to defend her character Claire because she was running an amusement park!

"[The controversy] was something I didn't expect at all because I sort of just from a perspective I was like of course it's illogical for her to be in heels in the jungle. She never intended to go in the jungle, and if she was in flats that would be a cheat," she explained.

"That would be like, 'Oh she managed to get her hands on some flats." No, no, no. Claire never thought that she was gonna end up traipsing through the jungle let alone outrunning a T-Rex."

Don't worry. Trevorrow is also aware of the hubbub surrounding his choice of footwear for his female lead, which he addressed in a hilarious way when it came time to tell Howard that the sequel had received the greenlight.

The famous director texted her and said, "#NoHeels2018." At least they have a sense of humor about the whole ordeal! James Corden also had a good laugh about it this summer when he had Howard's co-star Chris Pratt run around the set of The Late Late Show in heels after she explained the training she endured to master the art.

"Honestly, I trained for running in heels as if I was in the Olympics," she said at the time. "This is a life and death situation here. I better be sorted."

The Jurassic World sequel hits theaters July 22, 2018, but an official title hasn't been revealed. Jurassic World grossed more than $1.52 billion worldwide since it was released.
