Why does X-Men irritate Jennifer Lawrence so much? Why did John Krasinski and Matt Damon have some words before cameras even started rolling on Promised Land? And what does Anna Kendrick say about playing Princess Leia in the new Star Wars flick?
Read on for our latest installment of Big-Screen Spoilers...
Jennifer Lawrence Doesn't Want to Be Blue About X-Men Body Paint
When Jennifer Lawrence made her first X-Men movie, it wasn't always so pretty. As we first told you back in the day, a doctor was called to the set to treat some gnarly skin rashes, boils and blisters caused by the blue body paint used to transform her into Mystique.
"I can't wait," she said with more than a hint of sarcasm when we asked if she was looking forward to the daily body painting for the sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Hopefully, the makeup department will find something less toxic. "We're trying to figure out some ways to avoid the future skin irritations," said Lawrence, who will beging shooting the superhero followup after wrapping Catching Fire.
Matt Damon and John Krasinki Have Some Words
John Krasinski and Matt Damon not only costar in Promised Land, but they also cowrote the drama together.
Damon was also supposed to make his directorial debut with the film, but ditched that part of the plan because of his schedule. "His window was so small to make it, he didn't want to have to his directorial debut just crammed in like that," Krasinki told me at the Governors Awards.
Damon actually gave him the bad news right before the holidays when most of Hollywood is a ghost town. "I said, 'Dude, I can't get an agent on the phone let alone a director,'" Krasinki remembered. "It was the only time that we actually had some words for each other."
Luckily, Damon quickly solved the problem. "The next morning at 8:30, Matt emailed me and said, 'I sent the script to Gus Van Sant,'" Krasinki said. "Matt then took off on a flight, and by the time he landed, Gus had signed onto the movie."
Anna Kendrick Afraid of Star Wars Fans?
The E! Online readers have spoken. In a recent poll asking you who should play Princess Leia in the upcoming Star Wars 7, Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Lawrence nearly tied as the top pick.
While Kendrick gave us a big smile when we told her the news, she chose response very carefully. "This is going to be one of those things that gets me into trouble," she said with a laugh at the Trevor Project's Trevor Live benefit. "So I am just going to say that it's really sweet. That's all I'm going to say because no matter what I say I'll get into trouble."
Smart move, Anna. No one wants to piss off the Star Wars fans.
