Ron Howard's daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard, stopped by to promote "Terminator: Salvation" and cited her parents as great role models. Howard asked if, like her dad, she's only had sex with her spouse, but Bryce would only half-confirm it: "You could say's a blessing." Bryce did say though that she wasn't too old fashioned - she found out she was 3 months pregnant just 7 days after her wedding: "So that answers that question."

Howard thanked Bryce for going full-nude in Lars Von Trier's "Manderlay." Bryce replied that working with Lars was "intense" and added that she'd actually been nude on stage - in an "experimental, absurdist" college production. Howard noted that she seemed to have a fully grown out bush in "Manderlay," to which Bryce laughed that the film took place on a plantation in the 1930's, so she had to grow out her hair-down-there for the scene.

Christian Bale is Intense On Set

Howard asked Bryce about Christian Bale's now-infamous blow-up on the set of "Terminator: Salvation," so she explained: "Everyone heard the content but they didn't hear the context and it was a really intense scene...and we were riling ourselves up for that scene...Christian apologized that day and then again after the tape was leaked."

Bryce told the crew that her mother gave her a very clinical sex instruction video when she was in college, adding that she was shocked by even the most sterile sex positions: "I thought, 'That was really unpleasant' or 'That was just athletic.'"

Howard and Artie wondered why Bryce had never posed for a Maxim-type magazine to further her career, so she explained: "I don't feel like Maxim readers would be interested in me."
