Default Re: Jennifer Lawrence/Mystique. Introducing this sexy and talented actress.

I think Jennifer Lawrence may have been hired more for her acting ability than looks. Don't get me wrong. She's definitely hot, but I noticed that she had far more lines of dialogue than Rebecca Romijn, who was hired purely for her looks. Rebecca barely spoke at all in the X-Men films, maybe because she's just not that good an actress. Jennifer is much better as an actress, which is probably why they capitalised on this and made her more of a character this time round.

I wonder how they'll explain within the continuity of the movies why Mystique used to be quite chatty and bubbly, but then became rather laconic with not much personality when she grew older?
