Jennifer Lawrence Tried To Convince Her Nephew That She Is Mystique

While she had been meeting her nephew, Jennifer Lawrence tried to make him believe that she was a part of his favorite comic book series. According to her, her nephew Bear is obsessed with X-Men and knew everything about them. To get him to believe that she plays Mystique was a task on its own because he refused to acknowledge that as a fact.

The actress has been trying to convince him that she’s an X-Men but he supposedly hates that. Her attempts keep failing and he does not consider her a real X-Men member. To this, she further said how infuriated she becomes when her nephew irritates Lawrence about not actually being one of the X-Men. When she tried telling him that Lawrence plays Mystique, her nephew simply ignored her and refused to acknowledge her as a member.

The multiple attempts that she has made to convince him have all backfired in her face. While she said goodbye to her role in Dark Phoenix, she kept trying to make her nephew believe that she had the role of one of his favorite comic book heroes.

When she first took up the role, it had been enticing for her. This slowly started fading and Lawrence began hating playing the character. What made it difficult for her to play Mystique had been the massive amount of body paint and prosthetics that had to be put on her to make her role perfect for the screen.

The costume was highly limiting and the fumes that she had been in taking because of the body paint could have been affecting her badly as well.
