Born to belly laugh
For me, the only thing as fun as making the #JurassicWorld movies is getting to participate in Jurassic adventures across mediums. Whether it's a roller coaster ride, a toy, or a video game, each is an opportunity to step back into Claire’s shoes 😉 The other night over dinner, my 7-year-old daughter said something very true, that actors have such a fun job because we get to bring the story to life. And she's so right! But with one exception! When stories become immersive and interactive, it's the *player* who brings the story to life. Nothing more exciting than that: ) So Welcome to Jurassic World Evolution: Claire's Sanctuary is out today, June 18! @jurassicworldevolution #JurassicWorldEvolution (Link to trailer in my bio! )
13 yrs married today: ) Even though I have never once abided by the rules of wedding anniversary symbols - this year is technically our “lace” anniversary and I feel compelled to ask: who does this? And what does a gift of ‘lace’ look like? Plus, isn’t Seth cute? We were 20 years old in this pic - New Years Eve 2001! I love you Mr. Gabel!!! @stealthgabel
Last night was a ladies night as we kicked off the first of the Striike “Now You Know” travel series and I had a blast sharing my deep passion for New Zealand! For those of you who may not know, I am the US tourism ambassador for New Zealand (lol I know, I can’t believe I have this gig either ). We talked last night about the transformative power of travel and the ways in which travel can bring purpose, passion, and perspective into our lives. Another big topic of last night (something I actually don’t know much about ) was wine and all the artisan wineries you can visit in NZ — it was especially cool hearing it from a pro sommelier. Hands down, the biggest takeaway was how the @streichersisters made me want to take a girls trip with my little sisters to New Zealand asap! . . Also keeping my consignment fashion streak going — I am never re-selling this vintage @YSL dress. You may notice everyone dressing appropriately for the weather in summer cocktail dresses, while I on the other hand chose (as I typically do ) to dress for winter weather, when in summer. It just occurred to me, perhaps dressing for the southern hemisphere? 🤔 #NZMustDo #TNZAmbassador #TNZpartner @purenewzealand @streichersisters @jennstreicher @streicherhair @kristiestreicher @therealreal @ysl @armani (belt ) @gianvitorossi (shoes )
Hey all! Some of my NYU students recommended that I share their favorite book from our class this past year! We all loved Radical Candor by @kimmalonescott which is basically all about how to be a great leader without losing your humanity — and of course these principles apply to all professional and interpersonal relationships. Anyone here ever heard of Radical Candor? Leave your thoughts about the book below and check out the podcast: Radical Candor! #BDHBookshelf #RadicalCandor
Let’s do it, Rachel. You’ve been a constant inspiration to me since we were teenagers and continue to be an inspiration to us all. Congratulations @rachel chavkin!
44 years strong and getting stronger each day! Happy belated Anniversary to my mama and pops (and the best godfather Henry; )! ❤️ P.S. my mom said their wedding only cost $800 total😳
Date night with this foxy fella❤️❤️❤️
This week was beyond memorable ✨ We premiered @rocketmanmovie in NYC and partied at Tavern on the Green, followed by an extraordinary last night in the city of angels, doing our final round of press. @taron egerton , you’re absolutely brilliant and have one of the biggest hearts I’ve ever encountered ❤️ Elton’s journey is breathtaking and you have honored him by pouring your heart and soul into every single note! Thank you to everyone in the cast and crew for your friendship and wildly impressive talents - and to our AWESOME director @dexfletch , what an absolute blast it was to work with all of you. @bernietaupinofficial , you are a gem and an icon. @davidfurnish , your perseverance and passion for this project is the only reason we are here! And of course, @eltonjohn , the inspiration and heart of this extraordinary film. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us, unvarnished, raw and beautiful. Rocketman is officially in theaters -- hop on board and take flight with us 😊🚀 (Fan Art: @happyendingmachine - 16 years old and a legit Elton John fan, the future is bright!’ )
“I think that love is the answer. It is the answer, it is the key, it is the force, it is the center of what makes a leader powerful and worthy of leading.” — wise words from the wonderful David Oyelowo on what it means to be a leader. . @davidoyelowo is truly one of the wisest people I know. His advice isn’t to be missed, so make sure to watch his full video with #LC19 and @jessicaoyelowo ! @lead_conf
Finished my first year as a teacher! The past two semesters, I’ve had the immense privilege of collaborating with a group of brilliant artists at NYU Tisch Drama as we practiced what it means to a multi-hyphenate (actor-writer-director-producer-etc. ) in the entertainment industry. Seeing these dedicated students put 100% of their passion, creativity, and hard work reminds me how exciting is it to be a student and that I should try to always be a student in life -- always asking questions, leading from curiosity, and challenging myself. Thank you Nine Muses Lab 2018-19 for a wonderful year. I wish you all the best in your pursuits and dreams. Can’t wait to return to school next fall!
Happy #StarWarsDay 🌟 For me, as he is for many of you, Chewie is the ultimate co-pilot and the perfect example of a best friend. Mr. Mayhew, May The Force Be With You — you’ll aways be remembered in this galaxy and beyond.

Tickled green to celebrate #EarthMonth with @tidelaundry ’s new plant based, sustainably sourced detergent🌱🌱 It’s so important for me to know and trust what I bring into my home. Why? Because using products that are effective and sustainable will make a HUGE impact on the future of this planet. So I’m very excited to share this one with you: Tide has created a revolutionary detergent that’s not only plant-based but effectively cleans clothes in COLD water. This is a big deal, because 80% of a washer’s energy usage comes from heating water! Plus, washing in cold helps protect our clothes (textiles are one of the biggest contributors to landfills ). Using Tide purclean in cold water over the course of a year, a person could save enough energy to charge their smartphone for the Rest.Of.Their.Life! Wowzer! Our beautiful online family is so important to me, it’s a privilege I will never take for granted. For that reason, I am incredibly selective with my partnerships and only back products, companies, and initiatives I truly believe in. Check out the link in my bio to read more about the positive impact this can have on our planet and celebrate #EarthMonth with @tidelaundry ’s new plant based detergent #Tidepurclean #purcleanpartner
Today you are 32, but in my eyes, you will forever be my kid brother - age 6. Gap-toothed, curious, kind and determined, and most of all the greatest friend to all he encounters! You are the bedrock of this family, you have a heart of gold, you are hilarious, and we all love you baby brother Reedo! @reedchoward
At the end of the rainbow, I found the real treasure. Happy #NationalSiblingsDay 💛
Our hearts are always with you New Zealand. We still grieve in the wake of this unthinkable tragedy, and grief is an overwhelming emotion. For me, the only way to handle these feelings is to focus on how to show love, care and support for the families and communities this event will forever affect. In our day to day interactions with one another — in the words and actions that we share and take, we can stand for peace and understanding. There is no room for hate in this world. Even from this distance, there are ways we can support this grieving community. If you’re able, the New Zealand Council of Victims Support Group has set up a campaign (link in bio ) to support the victims and families affected by the Christchurch attack. This campaign is recommended by the New York Times. https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/christchurch-shooting-victims-fund Lastly, thank you to all the first responders and heroes like Naeem Rashid, who did everything they could to help. In these moments of horror and evil, it’s in our hands to ensure that love, courage, growth, grace and humanity will always prevail. Much love to you all xo bdh
#BDHWCW | “Technique and ability alone do not get you to the top; it is the willpower that is the most important. This willpower you cannot buy with money or be given— it rises from your heart.” – Junko Tabei, this week’s #WCW and the first woman ever to summit Everest! She was also the first woman to ascend all Seven Summits (the highest peak on every continent ), but no big deal.
I'm off on an adventure, but I want you all to know that I see all your birthday wishes and am immensely grateful for each and every one of you ☺️ Your positivity, kindness, and encouragement towards one another is inspiring! ❤️
If you’re wondering what’s on my wish list for my birthday... Dr. Anna Akbari ( @annaakbari ) has been a huge supporter and friend to me over the past few years. I feel so lucky and blessed to know her. For anyone who does not know Anna, all you need to know is that she is a giver and not a taker. Because of that, *I* am asking for this special request to support Anna: Anna was recently diagnosed with a very rare kind of ovarian cancer. Back in 2015, Anna had surgery to remove a tumor the size of her head! (no joke, her head! ) Even worse, this rare kind of cancer is resistant to chemotherapy and very deadly. So her options for treatment are limited and often out-of-pocket. As her friend, I feel so helpless, but then I realized there is something we can do and that’s why I’m sharing this. If you are able and willing to donate towards her treatment, every little bit will help to cover many of her treatments. (Link in my bio above ) Anna has also done a remarkable amount of research, so if you or someone you love is currently suffering from mucinous ovarian cancer check out her website, she’s posted all of her findings and treatments. Might be of use to someone out there 🙏🙏🙏 Thank you, thank you, thank you, even for taking the time to read this! #PositiveVibes and #PowerfulPrayers Xoxo bdh
Even from “Far and Away,” wishing my dad the most magical of birthdays! (Photo Circa 1992ish )
Happy birthday ya big lug! 😘 @joshgad
“All life is precious / And every day's a prize / And sometimes you'll find an answer in the sky.” This is a fantasy come true! It’s been an honor to work with such an amazing group of artists ( @taron egerton, you are a legend! ) Can’t wait for you to all join the party — #Rocketman lands in theaters May 31 🚀 @rocketmanmovie
Theo turned 12 years old yesterday, but I can't stop looking at his baby pictures! How is he spending his 12th birthday weekend? Right now, he's showing his sister The Empire Strikes Back for the first time and yesterday showed her A New Hope. #ProudMama. Theo, I wish you joy, discovery, kindness, adventure, growth and lots and lots of (SAFE ) mountain biking in the coming year! Happy Birthday Theo, we love you! #PreTeenButSoFarSoGood.
Happy Valentine’s day Mr. Gabel ❤️
