Real talk: Jennifer Lawrence lied to us and it really, really hurts.
Okay, so maybe she didn't lie per se, but she has changed her tune a bit since she told us last March that 2016's "X-Men: Apocalypse" would be her last go-round in the role of Mystique. During a May interview on the set of the film with Entertainment Weekly, JLaw said the truth of the situation is far more complicated than black and white -- in fact, it has a whole lot more to do with blue.
"I love working with Bryan [Singer], and I love these movies,” she said. "It’s just the paint," adding that when she signed on for 2011's "First Class" she didn’t care about "fumes and toxins," but "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?’”
Worrying about one's physical health is a pretty good reason to drop out of a franchise, but when the mag asked Lawrence if there was a chance she might go blue just one more time post-"Apocalypse," she gave the superhero-loving world the best answer they could have asked for.
"There is hope," she continued. “I don’t want to not be asked.”
Everyone, write your local congressmen and women, and demand a new bill that will create blue body paint with natural ingredients that JLaw can understand. Together, we can make this happen.
