Jennifer Lawrence didn’t enjoy her time playing Mystique. Mystique has the ability to mimic anyone’s appearance and voice with exquisite precision. She has blue skin, red hair and yellow eyes. Jennifer Lawrence, who starred in four x-men movies, has to go through an hour-long procedure to become Mystique.
Lawrence mentioned that makeup was the biggest issue for her. Her look for Raven was completed with blue paint and dozens of prosthetic details. It was even difficult for her to do essential things, like going to the bathroom.
