Jennifer Lawrence Painted Naked X-Men -- Self-conscious? Jennifer Lawrence gets painted naked for X-Men that took several months. The actress says it was a challenge in shooting the prequel.

Lawrence, 20, told the Hollywood Reporter: "Nothing's sacred anymore" she said of her marathon makeup sessions for X-Men: First Class, in which she plays the blue-bodied mutant Mystique.

"Those girls and I got so close," she says of her makeup team. "They were painting me naked every day for months. It was kind of like going to a really bizarre sleepover." She adds, jokingly: "It's what you guys imagine we do: one naked girl and seven pairs of hands all over her."

Having those women "all up in [my] business," as she puts it, wasn't the only challenge in shooting the X-Men prequel. Lawrence had to work out for two hours a day and stick to a strict diet – which was tough for the Louisville native.

"It was awful. I was hungry for five months. I'm still pissed about it," says Lawrence, who returned to Kentucky and some down-home cooking when she finished shooting. "I'm slowly working my way back, because I have to be able to eat like an a--hole."
