Jennifer Lawrence Says Her 'X-Men' Days Are Done
This interview from the premiere of the movie Serena (which I thought was being completely swept under the rug but apparently still had a big premiere) is the first time I think I’ve ever seen Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper talk to each other. So imagine my surprise to find out that these two are straight-up adorable. I mean, separate, she’s already great and I find him to be perfectly fine, but together, the cuteness is dangerous. Like, Kimmy Schmidt riding a miniature horse levels of danger-cute. Between insulting each other, showering each other with compliments, and JLaw persistently searching her own body for scabies, it would be easy to miss the point at which Lawrence says with adamant certainty (and no elaboration) that she will not be doing another X-Men movie after next year’s Apocalypse.
This makes sense. Bryan Singer is definitely going the Dazed and Confused Wooderson route of X-Men casting. (i.e. He keeps getting older, his mutants stay the same age… or get much younger every time.) With the new influx of young Apocalypse mutants, the (new) old guard of Mystique, Beast, and the Fassbender/McAvoy dream team look to be on their way out to greener pastures.
Anyway, Jennifer’s very brief response comes at the very end of the video if you’d like to skip to the 3:25 mark, but then you’d miss her searching her own body for lice and talking a whole lot about Dumb and Dumber. So why would you do that?
