Because SHES PSYCHIC AND KNEW WHETHER OR NOT HE WAS DOING IT. It just looks like shes a moron and forgot to use her powers. This, along with the bedroom scene where she didnt use her psychic powers when she WASNT in diamond form and just let herself get captured.
This is stupid...we all know that she cant use the powers together in the comics...so we all assume that she cant in the movies...however, there is never a point in the film where it is explained that she cant...she simply doesnt. There are times when she doesnt use her psychic powers when she ISNT in diamond form and anyone with half a brain would...so it appears to the average viewer that shes a moron who doesnt know when to turn her powers on...there are no hints that she CANT turn them both on at once.
You can say Charles an Erik are morons as well for not using their powers to freeze the minds of the military men on the warships preventing them from firing at the beach or crushing the cannons or simply ripping holes in the ships to capsize them.
