TV Bryce Dallas Howard Never Watched "Happy Days" Until her 20s

Howard Never Watched Dad's "Happy Days"
Jan. 13, 2011


Actress Bryce Dallas Howard was baffled by school pals' questions about her director dad Ron's time on "Happy Days" - because she never watched the classic TV show.

"The Village" actress grew up unaware of her dad's acting credits, insisting she only ever knew her father as a moviemaker.





And it wasn't until she was in her early 20s that she caught up on her dad's time as Richie Cunningham after U.S. chatshow host Jay Leno gifted her with a boxset.

She tells Britain's You magazine, "I never watched Happy Days. Schoolfriends used to say, 'What did you think of your dad in the show?' But I didn't see an episode until I was 22. Dad never showed us Happy Days or any of his acting - he's the most humble man on planet earth.

Leno gave me a boxset. So I sat down and watched them and it was wild to see my father act, because he's always been a director to me. I totally understand why everyone loves the show. There are running jokes that you love; there is something wholesome about it but it's also fun."

I find that hard to believe,how can she have not known about his acting credits considering he was in 2 of the most well known shows ever made.Her school friends knew about and probably watched Happy Days,but she didn't?C'mon.

I could see it where Ron just liked to leave things he did in the past, I think most guys do that.

I can't believe that she wouldn't have gone to a friend's house to check out the show when she was in high school.

That being said, it could have been that maybe she asked her dad and he either didn't say anything or didn't want to talk about it.
