Jennifer Lawrence Talks Nudity and 70s Fashion in X-Men: Days of Future Past
Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence returns to play the mutant Mystique in next summer's upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is set in the 1970s, 10 years after 2011's X-Men: First Class. During a recent interview, the actress said that she still has to go naked, with blue body paint to play this shapeshifting character, but she does get to try on some 1970s clothes from time to time.
"I'm naked. But when I do get to wear clothes, I love the '70s outfits."
The actress also said she wears a body suit in some scenes, instead of being covered head-to-toe in body paint, and that Mystique's demeanor has also changed in director Bryan Singer's sequel.
"Some of the Mystique look is a little different, but we're still using the same paint. But she's different in this film too. She was struggling - like a lot of normal humans - with the way she looked, and she was covered up a lot in the first movie, but this time she is Mutant and proud."
