Jennifer Lawrence Talks Mystique in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

Jennifer Lawrence will wear a full body suit for her role as MystiqueJennifer Lawrence will be wearing a full body suit for her role as Mystique in Bryan Singer's superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The actress was recently interviewed and discussed her costume in the film and was excited that she would not have to have her entire body painted, as she did in X-Men: First Class.

"I'm so excited, because I'm going to wear a body suit. It will be from neck down so it will cut out time and the blisters."

Jennifer Lawrence reportedly suffered from skin irritations during the shooting of X-Men: First Class and a doctor had to be called to the set.

She went on to discuss when the studio is planning to start shooting.

"May-ish. I haven't read the script yet. I haven't had 30 minutes. They literally gave me the script and I was like, 'I can't read this until Monday.'"

Jennifer Lawrence just won an Academy Award for Best Actress in Silver Linings Playbook.

X-Men: Days of Future Past was released May 23rd, 2014.

    @thedude-abides Exactly. I don't expect her to have an impecable decade to come, but it will have some treasures

      @bawnian-dexeus Good points. So, you're saying you think her career will pretty much follow the same course it's been on. I'd have to say I agree. To date, she's got the two David O. Russell flicks she's signed on for, the upcoming Serena with Bradley Cooper, three more Games movies and at least one more X-Men film. Definitely seems like she's taking the same approach, at least to this point.

        @thedude-abides I think she will be diverse enough to challenge both mainstream and independent projects. Hunger Games came as luck for her as well as X-Men

            @thedude-abides - It was an undeserved win to begin with, in my opinion. She's a talented actress, no doubt, but Best Actress of the year? Far from it in my book. Her best performance to date was still in Winter's Bone.

              I wasn't a fan of her mystique so I could care less either way.

                Nothing like seeing the Oscar-winner starring in both a cbm and upcoming series adaptation. Very reminiscent of Natalie Portman starring in Your Highness and Thor after winning for Black Swan in 2010. I'm not sure if winning will propel Lawrence to start taking on more serious work, or if it'll simply empower her to continue going where the money is, so to speak.

                  I can't imagine having a full-body allergic reaction to the paint/prosthetics. That must have been awful!

                          I've been watching the first one nonstop on HBO the last couple weeks. It's very entertaining and I'm sure this one will be even better. Not Lawrence's best role, but she still did great nonetheless.
