Jennifer Lawrence is hot, OK! That's just the way it is. And I, for one, can't wait till I catch a glimpse of her in that skin tight blue skin that Rebecca Romijn Stamos so gracefully fullfilled in the 3 previous X flicks.
So with that being said Jennifer was kind enough to lend her thoughts regarding prepping for the role of Mystique in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class!
This from the Orlando Sentinal:
“Oh my GOSH! I thought I had a whole year to PREPARE, you know, play the role, wait, and then have the movie come out. Just get used to how big a deal it might be.
“Usually, when you make a movie, there’s just a title and that doesn’t do much of anything for anybody. Even if it’s a Scorsese movie. Nobody knows what that title is about.
“I’ve never done a movie where the title alone makes people go a little crazy.”
“I just got off a plane from London. I was going through Customs, and the guy asks ‘Business or pleasure?’
And I say ‘Business.’
And he says ‘What kind of business?’
And I say ‘Movie. Meetings over a movie.’
And he goes ‘Oh, What movie?’
And he goes ‘Get OUT! They’re doing another X-Men? Oh my gosh, who are going to be?’
‘SHUT UP! Mystique? She’s HOT!’
“And I’m like, ‘Okaay. Can I get through Customs here?’
“I had nooo idea. I have been just ignorant of the whole fan base behind these films. I felt like an idiot. I had to call my mom and go, ‘Mom, I don’t KNOW about all this. This is before we’ve even started shooting, and it’s just CRAZY.’
The starlet, who turns 20 in August, had been surfing the wave that Winter’s Bone put her on back at Sundance when she read for the part. She landed it and THEN decided she’d better bone up on the character.
“When I got the part I dedicated a whole day to watching all three movies, and I really liked them. I was still a little worried, because I didn’t really understand the whole mutant thing. But the script cleared some of my questions up, and knowing that James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender were already on board gave me confidence.”
She had meetings with Vaughn and Co. in London this week. Today, it”s “I have to do 12 hours of prosthetics. Oh man.
“I have to take Mystique back to the beginning, before she became who we saw later. I don’t know exactly what I can talk about, but this is going to be fun.”
She says the prep work is physical, which knowing Mystique’s image, we can believe. Gym time. How does she look in blue?
“NOBODY looks good blue. Well, maybe Zoe Saldana. I am very curious to see how I’m going to come off in that suit.”
PS: I was going to create a Gallery, but, not many pictures to choose from out there!
