Bryce Dallas Howard (Spiderman 3, The Village, Ron Howard’s penis) has always come across as one of Natalie’s closer celebrity friends, with the two of them having attended Stagedoor Manor when they were teenagers.

In a new Nylon Magazine interview, the very sweet Bryce had some more kind comments for Natalie.

“The fact that she was a professional actress and she was going to an acting summer camp showed that it came from such an authentic place of joy. It wasn’t about a strategy – it was about doing something she really loved to do. She could be doing it in a community theatres, she could be doing it in a summer camp, or she could be doing it in films: It didn’t matter, she loved to act. At that stage it was deining and inspiring and wonderful.”
