Jennifer Lawrence's experience on the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be much different than it was on "X-Men: First Class." According to Lawrence, she'll wear a blue body suit to play mutant anti-heroine Mystique and not transform into the blue-skinned character using body paint.

"I'm so excited because I'm going to wear a body suit," Lawrence told E! Online after Sunday's Oscars. "It will be from neck down so it will cut out time and the blisters."

Lawrence, who won Best Actress at the 85th annual Academy Awards, starred in 2011's "X-Men: First Class" alongside Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult. The sequel brings back that entire crew, plus original "X-Men" cast members like Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart (there's some time jumping involved). Bryan Singer is set to direct.

For the first film, Lawrence endured up to seven hours of make-up application to play Mystique.

"There's no CG for me," Lawrence joked in a DVD extra from the film. "I had the theory, when I was really tired -- when I was on my seventh hour -- why don't you just dip me in a bathtub with blue?" They didn't. Six makeup artists were need to complete the Mystique costume.

Lawrence is busy, with "X-Men," "The Hunger Games" and two more movies with "Silver Linings Playbook" director David O. Russell coming down the pike.
