The 35-year-old actress - who is best known for her lead role in 'Jurassic World' - has revealed she made a conscious decision not to Google her own name because of the critical comments she read about herself after giving birth to her son Theodore in 2007.

Bryce - who is married to actor Seth Gabel - shared: "I gave birth to my son and I needed to do press afterwards for 'Spider Man 3'.

"So two weeks after giving birth, I had gained quite a bit of weight and everyone had been, you know, really nice up until that point.

"And I remember going onto a message board and thinking, 'Oh the premiere was last night what are they going to say?'

"But it was intense. And I remember feeling gutted, shutting the computer and just saying 'never again'.

"I think in a way that's a little bit why I stayed away from social media for so long."

Meanwhile, Bryce - who also has a four-year-old daughter called Beatrice with her actor husband - previously revealed she would love to learn to twerk.

The actress said she wishes she was a "killer" hip-hop dancer and able to successfully pull off the raunchy dance moves.

She said: "I'd love to be a killer hip-hop dancer. I want to be able to twerk."

Bryce also revealed she wishes she had a better memory for song lyrics and popular phrases.

She said: "I'd like to be one of those people who can instantly remember lyrics. I can't do lyrics or idioms.

"Recently, I tried to say to my husband the phrase 'What am I, chopped liver?' but I got it wrong. Instead, I said 'What am I, mashed potato?' "
