Jennifer Lawrence


Playing Mystique in the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie really got under Jennifer Lawrence's skin—literally.

And it was—there's no real polite way to stay this—gross!

How so? Read on to find out…

"I got a couple of things from the paint," Lawrence tells me, referring to the body makeup used to transform her into the blue-skinned superhero.

Like what kind of things?

"Like weird boils, rashes and blisters," Lawrence explains.

At one point, a doctor visited her on set. "She had to pop them," Lawrence says.

OK, I just threw up a little, so enough about that.

"Making the movie was great because the whole cast, we all—legitimately!—really loved each other," said Lawrence, an awards-season favorite this year for her work in Winter's Bone. "It was just kind of like being at a really bizarre summer camp because we were around each other 24/7 for months and months and months."

Including the seven female makeup artists responsible for turning her blue, a grueling process that took about eight hours every day.

"Nothing's sacred anymore," Lawrence says in the new issue of the Hollywood Reporter. "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."
