Jennifer Lawrence: X-Men Star Talks Getting Entire Body Painted By Seven Girls

Jennifer Lawrence may play a secret mutant, but she's not shy about revealing how it happened.

The 'Winter's Bone' star and Golden Globe nominee spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about her role in the upcoming film 'X-Men: First Class,' in which she'll play the entirely blue bodied Mystique. In order to get the look, she had to spend eight hours a day getting her entire body painted.

"Nothing's sacred anymore," Lawrence told the Reporter. "Those girls and I got so close. They were painting me naked every day for months. It was kind of like going to a really bizarre sleepover... It's what you guys imagine we do: One naked girl and seven pairs of hands all over her."

She also went on a strict diet and workout regime to get in shape for the film -- though she said she's "still pissed about that" part.

It might be even harder to dress Lawrence than it is to paint her -- she told USA Today last week about the difficulty she has in finding clothing, especially a Golden Globes dress.

"I tried on about three dresses. My stylist knows she's got about three to four dresses she can put me in before I'm like 'Argh, I gotta get outta here!'" she said.
