Well, she's never been a twig, has she? And she's not a fitness/diet freak either. I think the clothes were an attempt at a disguise from the paps.

I agree her natural bodyshape is nothing like Rebecca Romijn. But Rebecca was a supermodel, so she didn't have an ounce of spare flesh on her. I thought Jennifer looked okay as a younger Mystique - let's see what they do with her this time round.

Alice Eve would have been a better Emma Frost in terms of acting and not being as skinny as January Jones, but didn't Alice Eve turn the role down? Plus, we don't seem to be getting any more Emma Frost (and if we do, it'll be Singer's preference for the old version with Sigourney), so the Frost ship has sailed...

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
