DeWanda Wise is not affected by the negative reviews of “Jurassic World Dominion”.
The 38-year-old actress played pilot Kayla Watts in the final film in the ‘Jurassic World’ trilogy and admits she paid little attention to the poor critical response.
DeWanda told Insider, “From my perspective, I’ve always been pretty immune to criticism. We made a movie during a pandemic. Like, honestly, you can print this if you want: you can’t tell me shit.”
The actress continued, “We were the first production during a pandemic. We were all living together. The people who received this film with the love it was created with, that’s where my focus was. C It’s just who I am naturally. I don’t go where I’m not loved.”
Wise was supported by co-star Bryce Dallas Howard who said she was “loved everywhere”.
The 41-year-old star said: “It’s important to say that we love you everywhere.
“There is no doubt that we all think of you and what you have done in ‘Jurassic World’. Total support.”
An Extended Edition of the film has been released on DVD, which contains 14 minutes of additional footage, and Wise and Howard say this is a fuller version of the film that critics haven’t had a chance to see.
DeWanda said, “I’m grateful now that people have the opportunity to see the film in the fullness of its intentionality.”
Howard added: “I’m losing my mind, so excited for the extended edition to be shared with people.
“The Extended Edition is a restoration of the original cut, and it’s the movie we made. It has all the narrative connective tissue, and character moments and stuff, that we all built together. I’m just glad people are going to see our movie.”
