And this is the second part of Access Hollywood interview and this time, Jennifer talks about taking on the role of Mystique in the new movie, “X-Men: First Class”, what advice Rebecca Romijn (who had previously played the role in the film franchise) gave her and what we can expect from the prequel. She also mentions James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, so it’s really worth seeing!
Jennifer Lawrence has immersed herself in the role of Katniss Everdeen in Lionsgate?s adaptation of Suzanne Collins? “The Hunger Games” and she?s starting to feel like another big screen action star in the process.
?It was fantastic!? the 20-year-old actress told Access Hollywood on Thursday, when asked about landing the coveted role. ?It was great because I was such a huge fan of the books before I even knew about the movies,? she explained. ?I feel like a fan that gets to dress up? It was really, really great.?
The ?Winter?s Bone? Oscar nominee said she and co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson have started intense training at a stunt camp for the upcoming movie.
?I love archery! I really love it,? the actress told Access. ?And I?m starting to do stunts with the bow and arrow, so I kind of feel like Hugh Jackman. And then I?m doing rock climbing [and] tree climbing.?
The actress, who is also appearing in the upcoming ?X-Men: First Class,? said her past diet regime for the mutant shape shifter Mystique is helping her prepare to play Katniss.
?We all pretty much have to get in supernatural shape for this,? she explained. ?The dieting probably for ?X-Men? is helpful.?
Jennifer ? who is now sporting long dark locks ? laughed off complaints made by some about her not having the same hair color as her District 12 Tribute character.
?It was funny because everyone was upset that I was blonde, and I was like, ?I?m gonna dye it,?? she said.
?The Hunger Games? is set to begin filming in North Carolina, and the film will hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
Yahoo! Movies has posted new exclusive clip of X-Men: First Class! It features James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence’s Raven Darkholme and Rose Byrne’s Moira MacTagger as they are introduced to Nicholas Hoult’s Hank McCoy by Oliver Platt’s The Man in Black aka head of Division X. “X-Men: First Class” is coming out in the U.S. on June 3. I can’t wait!
Yahoo! Movies premieres the first clip from the Matthew Vaughn-directed X-Men: First Class, featuring Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Raven Darkholme (Jennifer Lawrence) demonstrating their mutant abilities for disbelieving officials at CIA Headquarters. The scene also includes Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggart and Oliver Platt as the Man in Black.
Plot: X-Men: First Class charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto?s Brotherhood and Professor X?s X-Men.
