Growing Up Howard

When your parents needed someone to step in and watch you as a kid, we're fairly certain your babysitter was some local teen who was trying to score some extra dough to buy clothes at the mall. But when you're Bryce Dallas Howard and your dad is director Ron Howard, it seems your childhood babysitter was someone slightly more famous.

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

When the Black Mirror actress stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday, she confirmed that sometimes Tom Cruise would step in and watch her when she was a youngster.

"Well it's like a little in the middle [that it's true he would babysit]," she shared. "He would do like cartwheels and entertain us. And parents are always so relieved when there's a person like that, like a young enthusiastic, person in their 20s willing to watch [over them]."

She shared that he didn't just do cartwheels but also back flips. "He's an acrobat," she said.
