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.
X-Men: First Class opens in theaters on June 3, 2011.
