Jennifer Lawrence is set to make a statement in the May2011 issue of GQ magazine. The actress who was nominated for an Oscar this year for her role in Winter's Bone will play Mystique in X-Men: First Class.
Director Matthew Vaughn said of casting Jennifer as Mystique,
"There are a lot of young American actors right now who haven't got any technique," Vaughn said. "And to be blunt, a lot of these kids assume that just by having a good set of teeth and tits, smiling for the camera's gonna be enough. I needed someone who could act."
