Jennifer Lawrence Nude For New Film; Most Daring Role Yet?

Jennifer Lawrence will once again be reprising her role as the mysterious villainess Mystique in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse film. It is rumored to be her last appearance as Mystique, the blue shape-shifting character that requires Lawrence to strip down as she is painted from head to toe with body paint for the role.

The daring role apparently has Jennifer Lawrence hesitant to keep coming back to play Mystique. Complaining about the toxic paint, she said “It’s just the paint…fumes and toxins… I’m like, ‘I can’t even pronounce this and that’s going in my nose? I’m breathing that?'”

Describing the process that she has to undergo every time she transforms into the blue character, it’s no wonder that Jennifer Lawrence isn’t loving it. When she first began the role, it would take seven hours to paint her entire body, starting with attaching Mystique’s scales and then applying three layers of paint. Then, another five layers are applied to create what the actress called a splattering effect of different colors.

Thankfully, Jennifer Lawrence endures it all with good humor. She said, “I know that everyone feels sorry for me, but it’s so much fun. It’s like a sleepover, except I’m naked and getting painted.”

We’re also certain that Jennifer is thankful that the process has gone down from seven hours to only three to achieve the Mystique look for X-Men: Days of Future Past. For much of the movie, Mystique wore a body suit that covered her up until the neck, so the blue paint only had to be applied on Jennifer Lawrence from the neck up.

Jennifer said that this was a big, happy change for her in Mystique’s role as the blue paint has caused a lot of problems for her previously; namely skin irritations in the forms of “weird boils, rashes and blisters.” According to the actress, the skin irritations got so bad while filming for X-Men: First Class that a doctor had to come on set to pop them.

Promotional photos that have been put out for X-Men: Apocalypse appear to show Jennifer Lawrence’s character in full body paint once again, however, as the yellow body suit that Mystique previously wore is nowhere to be seen. Therefore, it can only be assumed that she will be in the nude once again, fully painted from head to toe, in what will likely be her final reprisal of the role.
