Romijn knows a thing or two about being painted head-to-toe: She was the first model painted for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, and she endured eight hours of makeup a day to be transformed into Mystique in the "X-Men" films. As shape-shifting mutant Mystique, Romijn was fully covered in layers of blue body paint. She said she was often brought in at midnight to begin the painting process so she could make it to the set by 9 a. And a side effect of all that paint? A trail of it wherever she went. It was reported that Jennifer Lawrence, who took over the role of Mystique in the recent "X-Men" reboot, wore a body suit because the body paint irritated her skin. Romijn shared her thoughts on the shortcut:. I love sharing that role with that girl. She's as cool as they come.
