Jennifer Lawrence: is there anything she can't do? She's universally beloved for tripping and falling during the Oscars, she gets away with smoking pot, she admits being star-struck by Honey Boo Boo, she jokes about her butt, and she just so happens to be one of the most gorgeous and intriguing actresses in Hollywood. Also, according to a recently released X-Men image, she looks stupendously hot as a naked blue mutant.
Yesterday X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of Lawrence in her role as Mystique, and she looks predictably fantastic. What's really interesting about the photo, however, is the fact that Lawrence is wearing a completely different Mystique costume this time around -- and even with the fairly detailed picture Singer shared, you can't tell what's fabric and what's flesh.
Apparently when Lawrence did X-Men: First Class, she had a lot of problems with the body paint used to transform her into Mystique. Not only did she suffer an allergic reaction that was bad enough that a medical specialist was brought on the set to treat her skin, she had to sit in the makeup chair for up to eight hours every day as she underwent a process where her body was shaved, coated with layers of blue body paint, then topped with silicone scales. She said of the grueling schedule with her makeup assistants,
Nothing's sacred anymore. Those girls and I got so close. They were painting me naked every day for months. It was kind of like going to a really bizarre sleepover.
This time around Lawrence won't have to endure quite as much makeup application, because a skin-tight blue suit replaces the blue body paint used in previous movies. As she put it,
I'm so excited because I'm going to wear a body suit. It will be from [the] neck down so it will cut out time and the blisters.
Check out the full image of Jennifer Lawrence in all her Mystique glory -- can you tell where the bodysuit begins?
That's one hell of a costume, and she looks like she got in crazy good shape for the role. JLaw is famous for saying she'll never diet for a role ("I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can’t happen") ... buuuuuuut it's also true she said that when she did X-Men: First Class she worked out twice a day for months while following a strict eating regimen:
It was awful, I was hungry for five months. I’m still pissed about it.
Well, whether she dieted or just naturally looks this amazing in a blue suit that leaves nothing to the imagination, I'm excited to see her take on the Mystique role again. Way to be relentlessly awesome, JLaw.
Are you looking forward to seeing Jennifer Lawrence in X-Men: Days of Future Past?
