Jennifer Lawrence Talks Blue Paint in X-Men

by at . Comments

Jennifer Lawrence, star of Winter's Bone, plays Mystique in the new prequel X-Men: First Class.  The role, orginally portrayed by Rebecca Romijn, required the actress to spend more than two months in full-body blue makeup. 

But how did the young actress feel about having people all up in her business everyday?

Lawrence recently talked to The Hollywood Reporter about being naked on set all day long.

"Nothing’s sacred anymore," Lawrence told the mag. "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."

The article also reveals Fox has Lawrence down for two sequels if First Class does well.

In other X-Men: First Class news, director Matthew Vaughn insists this image released yesterday was not authorized to appear online. Yet, claims they know for a fact 20th Century Fox distributed the image officially to Yahoo!, MSN, Moviefone and IGN to post along along with cast interviews.

Vaughn told /Film, "I freaked out on them yesterday. I don't know where the hell that came from. I don't think it's a Fox image. It's not a pre-approved image. When I found out, I said, what the f**k is this s**t, and Fox is running around trying to figure out what happened as well. I agree. It's like a bad photoshop, which maybe it was by someone. It didn't reflect the movie. I was shocked when I saw it. I was like 'Jesus Christ'..."

X-Men: First Class is set to hit theaters on June 3, 2011.
