Jennifer Lawrence, the fresh-faced newcomer who received an Oscar nomination for her work in the 2010 movie “Winter’s Bone,” is next taking on a whole different role – Mystique in the new “X-Men: First Class” movie.
GQ got a hold of her for a photo shoot and feature. We would imagine after spending all that time shooting the role of Mystique in nothing but blue body paint, she must feel downright covered up in her underwear.
“X-Men” director Matthew Vaughn tells the men’s magazine, “There are a lot of young American actors right now who haven’t got any technique. And to be blunt, a lot of these kids assume that just by having a good set of teeth and tits, smiling for the camera’s gonna be enough. I needed someone who could act.”
“X-Men” hits theaters June 3.
