Jennifer Lawrence admits that she hates having Mystique body paint but it doesn’t mean she dislikes the “X-Men” franchise.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lawrence said the reason why she is considering leaving her role as a mutant shapeshifter is because of the toxins from the blue paint used to transform her into Mystique.
“I love working with Bryan [Singer], and I love these movies. It’s just the paint…fumes and toxins. Now I’m almost 25 and I’m like, ‘I can’t even pronounce this and that’s going in my nose? I’m breathing that?’” the actress revealed.
JLaw first appeared in “X-Men: First Class” at age 20.
The “Hunger Games” star, however, said she doesn’t rule out the possibility of her returning to the blockbuster franchise. “There is hope. I don’t want to not be asked,” she said.
Lawrence hinted earlier this year that “X-Men: Apocalypse” will be her final film with the franchise, Cinema Blend wrote.
Michael Fassbender (who played Magneto) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast) also said they are open to reprise their respective roles in the franchise, but so far there were no announcement of any contract extensions, the site added.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” is the final entry in the franchise’s “First Class” trilogy, which means the contracts for the trilogy’s main stars will expire.
Meanwhile, “X-Men” executive producer Simon Kinberg expressed his view on whether the stars of the “First Class” would return in the franchise, EW wrote.
“I just wanna finish this movie and then figure out the next one. But I do think about the next chapters of these stories. My hope is we can bring these guys back. And if we didn’t then I would adjust,” said Kinberg.
The upcoming “X-Men” movie stars Lawrence, Fassbender, Hoult, James McAvoy as Professor X and Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse. It will roll in theaters on May 27, 2016.
