Behind the Scenes of Jennifer Lawrence’s X-Men: First Class Make-Up

To help promote X-Men: First Class arriving on DVD and Blu-ray September 9th (a special Friday release), io9 scored a behind-the-scenes video that will be included in the set. In it, Jennifer Lawrence discusses her arduous seven-hour makeup process that was necessary so she could play the part of Mystique.

“There was no CG for me,” says the actress, “It’s the same technology and the same methods they were using on Rebecca Romijn, the original Mystique ten years ago…I know everybody feels sorry for me, but we’re having so much fun. It’s like a sleepover, except I’m naked and being painted.”
