One of the oddest criticisms about Jennifer Lawrence being cast as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games is the fact that Lawrence is a pale blonde and Katniss is an olive-skinned brunette. As the film’s director, Gary Ross, has said “I promise all the avid fans of The Hunger Games that we can easily deal with Jennifer‚Äôs hair color.” Judging from this photo of Lawrence in full Mystique makeup for the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie, she’s proving that she can easily rock out the hair and makeup transformations and that fans of the books will have nothing to worry about.

Sadly, we doubt footage of this will show up on the Blu-ray. Winter’s Bone star Jennifer Lawrence—who will play Mystique in the upcoming X-Men: First Class—told the Hollywood Reporter that seven women were required to paint her naked body blue each day for the shoot. “Nothingís sacred anymore…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. Itís what you guys imagine we do: One naked girl and seven pairs of hands all over her.” Actually we didn’t imagine that…until now.
On top of this arduous process (which Lawrence previously called “Mystink”), diet was also an issue on shoot. “It was awful, I was hungry for five months,” she moaned. “Iím still pissed about it. Iím slowly working my way back because I have to be able to eat like an asshole.” So do you want us to see this movie or not, Jennifer? They’ve got you signed up for sequels if it’s a hit!
