She’s only 20 years old, but Jennifer Lawrence has accomplished a lot. She was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Winter’s Bone, has just been cast as the lead in The Hunger Games and is stripping down and getting painted up as Mystique in the upcoming X-Men: First Class! But her good looks don’t deserve the credit for Jennifer’s success, according to her X-Men director.
There is no denying Jennifer has a hot body as displayed in her new GQ photo shoot, but the young star also has talent.
Rebecca Romijn previously played the role of Mystique in X-Men films, a color-changing and shape-shifting mutant. But Jennifer is now taking over and Matthew Vaughn, the director, says she’s perfect.
“There are a lot of young American actors right now who haven’t got any technique,” Vaughn tells GQ. “And to be blunt, a lot of these kids assume that just by having a good set of teeth and tits, smiling for the camera’s gonna be enough.”
“I needed someone who could act.”
Jennifer’s career is really taking off and Vaughn thinks he knows why.
“She’s got a set of balls on her,” he explains.
