To be a successful actor, you need to be able to draw on emotions on demand. Need to laugh at a joke like it's the funniest thing you've ever heard, even though this is the fifth take of the scene and you hate your colleague? Gotta act. Need to cry your eyes out Lifetime movie-of-the-week style? Gotta act. Jurassic World's Bryce Dallas Howard showed her chops on last night's Conan. Howard possesses the useful acting skill of being able to cry on command. Conan O'Brien put her skills to the test, and we can promise you've never seen such an emotional reaction to a discussion about Home Depot.
Of course, this is the Internet, so there are plenty of commenters claiming Howard faked her waterworks. Onions in her coffee mug perhaps? We doubt it. But we're sure Howard won't be shedding any tears over the haters. Or maybe she will. She can cry on command, y'know.
