'X-Men: Days of Future Past': J.Law Gets Nekkid and Blue

Jennifer Lawrence may be a prestigious, celebrated actress with inestimable talent and potential and yada yada yada, but let's not forget the important fact that she is also one smoking hot babe.

You might even say this girl is on fire, but that'd be too easy a "Hunger Games" punny, then, wouldn't it? So it's a good thing we didn't say it.

J.Law, fresh off a trip to Cannes supporting "Catching Fire," is back to work on the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" this week, so director Bryan Singer decided to treat his Twitter fellowship to a glimpse at the scene of her all decked out in blue once more.

In the follow-up to 2011's "X-Men: First Class," Lawrence returns as Raven/Mystique, a woman who's mutant ("and proud").

While a boatload of "X-Men" and "X2" alums have come back to reprise their roles for the new series effort — like Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore and Daniel Cudmore — Lawrence replaced Rebecca Romijn (yeah, the Sports Illustrated and Victoria's Secret model) for keeps.

With this image of Lawrence in her full, blue-skinned glory, it's easy to see why she was chosen to do so.

Unfortunately for her the process of becoming this blue goddess is not nearly as easy as it looks.

Jennifer Lawrence's behind-the-scenes pic is the latest in a string of character images shared by Bryan Singer throughout the production process on "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

He's also doled out glimpses of fellow blue-comer Nicholas Hoult as Beast ...

... Hugh Jackman as one stylin' and profilin' (for the '70s at least) Logan Wolverine ...

... James McAvoy in desperate need of a haircut ...

... and little Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde.
