Lawrence on Playing Mystique in X-Men: First Class

Jennifer Lawrence talked to the Orlando Sentinel about playing  Mystique in X-Men: First Class. Here’s a clip from the article:

“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.”
