Not a whole lot of down time anymore between periods of anticipation for Jennifer Lawrence movies. Now that her Oscar-bait AMERICAN HUSTLE gig has achieved its goal and everyone got their Katniss fix with CATCHING FIRE, there's yet another payday role to look forward to in the form of the next X-MEN installment, DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. In the lead up to one or both of those movies, Jen's got a spread of tasteful portraits in this month's LA Times Magazine. She cleans up pretty good, huh? Speaking of cleaning up, how much of a f*cking bitch must it have been to get all this blue shit off her after wrapping for the day? I'll bet she regretted accepting this role pretty quick in the shooting schedule.
Think about what it must be like, getting up at the ass crack of dawn, then spending hours in a make up room having people applying shit to your naked body that essentially turns you into a human canvas for various forms of body paint and prosthetics. After that, having to walk around a set for hours and hours, being gawked at by teamsters and grips and trying not to scratch an itch for fear of totally mucking up the whole works. I don't know how Jen got through it, but I'd have required a special PA standing by at all times with a copy of my paycheck in hand, just to keep me focused.
