Bryce Dallas Howard - Howard Never Watched Dad's Happy Days

Actress BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD was baffled by school pals' questions about her director dad RON's time on HAPPY DAYS - because she never watched the classic TV show.
The Village actress grew up unaware of her dad's acting credits, insisting she only ever knew her father as a moviemaker.
And it wasn't until she was in her early 20s that she caught up on her dad's time as Richie Cunningham after U.S. chatshow host Jay Leno gifted her with a boxset.
She tells Britain's You magazine, "I never watched Happy Days. Schoolfriends used to say, 'What did you think of your dad in the show?' But I didn't see an episode until I was 22. Dad never showed us Happy Days or any of his acting - he's the most humble man on planet earth.
"(Leno) gave me a boxset. So I sat down and watched them and it was wild to see my father act, because he's always been a director to me. I totally understand why everyone loves the show. There are running jokes that you love; there is something wholesome about it but it's also fun."
