Ron Howard Didn’t Want His Kids to Act

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News,

Bryce Dallas Howard with her fatherRon Howard wasn't keen for his children to pursue acting careers.

The actor-turned-director - famous for his role as teenager Richie Cunningham in the iconic sitcom Happy Days - admitted he and his wife Cheryl moved their four children, daughter Bryce Dallas Howard, twins Jocelyn Carlyle Howard and Paige Carlyle Howard and son Reed Cross Howard away from Los Angeles so they wouldn't be lured into Hollywood.

"I'm not so crazy about them getting into the industry to be honest. It's tough, particularly for women. We even moved our kids out of Los Angeles and raised them East outside of New York City, because we just didn't want them exposed to it," he said recently.

The 59-year-old filmmaker wasn't able to keep all of his daughters out of the movie business with Bryce launching an acting career - appearing in several films, including The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and The Village - while Paige went onto win Best Supporting Actress at the 2013 Los Angeles Movie Awards for her role in The Employer.
