Jennifer Lawrence says she loved wearing Seventies outfits for the new 'X-Men' movie, 'Days of Future Past'

Jennifer Lawrence loved wearing Seventies outfits in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

The Oscar-winning actress reprises her role as blue mutant Mystique from 2011's 'X-Men: First Class' in the new movie, which is partly set in the 1970s, and she enjoyed wearing groovy clothing such as flared pants.

Lawrence - whose entire naked body is painted blue for the role - told SciFiNow: "I'm naked. But when I do get to wear clothes, I love the Seventies outfits.

"Some of the Mystique look is a little different, but we're still using the same paint. But she's different in this film too. She was struggling - like a lot of normal humans - with the way she looked, and she was covered up a lot in the first movie, but this time she is mutant and proud."

The 'Hunger Games' actress joins an all-star cast in the new film, which will unite the cast of the original 'X-Men' movies and the cast of the 2011 prequel.

Stars returning for the film include Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Lucas Till and Ellen Page.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is due for release in July 2014.

When the mutants of the future face extinction, they send Wolverine (Jackman) back in time to change destiny. The finale is too effects-heavy and non-fans may question whether it all makes sense, but the principal players are all on top form and the slick direction and smart writing are at times enormously entertaining.
