The hashtag #TheHelp recently started trending on Twitter in the wake of protests across the country supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. However, Bryce Dallas Howard’s reaction isn’t what we expected.
Over the weekend, the 39-year-old actress caught wind of The Help’s renewed popularity. (The movie reached the number one spot on Netflix’s most-watched charts but has since dropped to fourth place.)
Howard—who played Hilly Holbrook in The Help—addressed the situation on Instagram, reminding viewers that the movie is not only told from the perspective of a Caucasian woman, but it’s also created by “predominantly White storytellers.” She then provided a list of alternative movie and TV show options, including 13th, Selma and When They See Us.
