Jennifer Lawrence Pleas To Bring Mystique To ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2’

Jennifer Lawrence may be one of Hollywood’s top A-listers, but that doesn’t mean the actress isn’t pining for her own dreams jobs. The X-Men: Apocalypse star took the opportunity to share one such dream during a recent interview and, pleading with any Hollywood powers that might have eyed the interview, Lawrence laid out her hopes. Ms. Lawrence also opened up about the moment she knew she had made it in Hollywood and how that moment forced her to re-evaluate her inner circle of friends. Jennifer talks about being a shy and guarded person, facing new rules in Hollywood society that forced her to open herself up in ways she could never have imagined.

Jennifer Lawrence Wants To Play Mystique Again, But Not In An X-Men Film

Actress Jennifer Lawrence opened herself up in a live MTV interview, according to Variety, and a portion of the talk focused on Lawrence’s past as Mystique in the X-Men franchise and the conditions under which Jennifer would again play the character. While she was there to talk about Passengers, the actress was asked if she would consider reprising Mystique in a Guardians of the Galaxy film.

“I would love to,” Lawrence said. “I would choose that over doing another X-Men movie maybe,” she laughed.

Previously, Jennifer has been on the fence about continuing to play Mystique. At times, she has expressed frustration with the X-Men role, but has later recanted and actually expressed gratitude to Marvel for the opportunity to play the character. Now, it seems Ms. Lawrence isn’t as off put by the character itself, but perhaps some other aspect of playing Mystique in the X-Men films.

“I won’t be Mystique in the X-Men movies, but I would love to be Mystique in Guardians of the Galaxy,” said Ms. Lawrence. “I wonder if I could do that.”

Passengers Star Jennifer Lawrence Shares What It Takes To Be Her Friend

There was a moment in Jennifer’s life that changed her entire outlook and that moment, according to The Hamilton Spectator, came when Paul Rudd told her they would always remain friends. Lawrence says she has always looked to Rudd as a potential friend, so, when that moment really came, it was something that elevated her to a greater level.

“I was like, ‘When people look back and wonder what happened, when she changed, when it all got destroyed,’ it will be right here, at this moment,” Jennifer shares. “Because I have always looked at Paul Rudd and thought we’d be friends.”

Paul Rudd may be a special case, because Lawrence also revealed that she’s generally a shy and socially awkward person. Parties are particularly bad for Lawrence. The X-Men: Apocalypse star says the sheer number of people has a debilitating effect on her socializing skills and she usually corners one or two people for much of the evening, forcing them to keep her company.

Jennifer recalls one party hosted by Guy Oseary, because her social anxiety led to a humiliating incident amid a large crowd of party goers. Ms. Lawrence says she ended up getting very drunk, eventually becoming sick and vomiting, before begging Ellen Page to drive her home.

“You might think you know me, but when you approach me you’re a total stranger to me and I’m scared,” explained Ms. Lawrence. “[I get] very protective of my space. It took me a long time to be able to do that.”

Jennifer’s need for privacy isn’t limited to parties, either. The actress says she will purposely be very rude to fans or paparazzi trying to take her picture, when she’s eating dinner in public restaurants. Lawrence suggests that making a public display will prevent others from trying to intrude on her evening, so she will react strongly, upon perceiving the flash of a cell phone camera.

“Privacy is a full-time job and I work very hard at it,” says Jennifer Lawrence.
