Bryce Dallas Howard says she hasn't Googled herself in nine years after reading cruel online jibes about her post-pregnancy weight
Bryce Dallas Howard has revealed she hasn't Googled herself in nine years after she received cruel online comments about her post-pregnancy weight.
The 35-year-old actress read the comments via an Internet message board after attending the premiere of Spider Man 3 in 2007 - just two weeks after giving birth to her first child Theo.
Speaking to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on Thursday's edition of This Morning, the actress said the jibes put her off using social media.
