Hollywood Elsewhere spoke with actress Jennifer Lawrence, who was recently in Los Angeles on a break from shooting X-Men: First Class in London. Here's what she told the site about her make-up process for the movie, and about how much we will actually be seeing her as Mystique:
"Only 10% of her screen time will be as Mystique, she said. It takes X-Men: First Class makeup artists about six hours to transform her into Mystique with the blue skins and the scales, she added. (She has a nickname for the process or the makeup or whatever -- "Mystink.") I asked if official photos have been taken, and she said the idea was to keep her appearance under wraps until just before the film's release. I said if the world has to wait until next summer for a shot, fine, but if an un-approved shot makes it onto the web I won't be sorry."
We'll be sure to keep you posted with any more X-Men: First Class info as soon as we have more information.
