Bryce Dallas Howard's dad Ron Howard was so overwhelmed at the birth of his first grandchild he lost his filmmaking skills. The director wanted to film the birth of Theodore in February (07) but was so "freaked out" he could only film his daughter's feet. Dallas Howard says, "He's this amazing filmmaker, you would think his composition would be so elegant and poignant. But he was totally freaked out of his mind. He basically shot our feet the entire time."
