Rebecca Romijn wore precious little for the steamy scenes in her last movie, "Femme Fatale." But she was notably overdressed compared with her wardrobe in "X2: X-Men United." Reprising her role as the evil enchantress Mystique, Romijn parades around in nothing but a thick layer of blue paint. Shooting outdoor nude scenes in snowy Calgary was no picnic -- even if food was used to warm her up. "They put all these potato flakes on top of the real snow to save my feet from getting frostbite -- I mean, it was freezing up there," said Romijn, whose Berkeley childhood didn't prepare her for chilly temperatures. "I don't know exactly what else was in the potato flakes, but it turned to glue, and I had these, like, glue shoes by the time I was finished making the trek across the tundra. They lifted me up into a helicopter to keep me warm between takes, and (co-star) Ian McKellen picked the potato goo off the bottoms of my feet, going, 'You poor girl,' and peeling chunks of potato off."
