JenniferLawrenceDaily recently dug up the first clear look at Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, which opens June 3rd. Lawrence started on the Bill Engvall show, which is apparently something that exists, then went on to receive an Oscar nomination last year for her role in Winter’s Bone at the age of 20, which she has since parlayed into parts in X-Men and Jodie Foster’s The Beaver. As you can see below, she was recently the subject of a GQ pictorial in which they stuck her in one of those high-waisted, one-piece jobs that hipsters prize for their ability to look unflattering on 100% of human females. Great work, GQ.
I don’t quite understand the thought process behind the last two Mystiques (last time it was Rebecca Romjin). What’s the point of casting hot blondes if you’re just going to give them a giant blue forehead with a receding hairline of Raggedy Anne-red hair and yellow eyes? As long as we’re taking creative liberties here, making a 20-year-old girl’s forehead look less reminiscent of Nic Cage seems like something we could all get behind. That wig looks like it could morph into a bird at any second.
