SF Gate Interview

Tags: 

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.

Rebecca Romijn: We're the freaks among the freaks. There were so many visitors on the set with their jaws on the floor, so we [Romijn and Cummings] found ourselves in each other's trailers complaining like an old, bitchy blue married couple. We were our own special blue support group. Alan and I would watch Waiting for Guffman a lot when we were waiting. We'd sit in his trailer and practice the "stool song" in our blue makeup.

The Advocate: If you see Mystique in the comic book, she's clothed like the other people. She's got her comic book superhero vinyl outfit on. But for the movie they say, "We think clothes are sort of outdated. We're just going to body-paint you."
Rebecca Romijn: I have to agree with the producers of the movie or whoever it was that decided Mystique shouldn't wear clothes. Clothes would get in the way if you're trying to morph. If your body cells can morph, how does the fabric of the garment morph?
TA: You'd have to rip the clothes of every five seconds.

Question: I loved Femme Fatale. It was really too bad it didn't do well. What was that experience like?
Rebecca Romijn: It was a shame, because it was an amazing experience. Unfortunately, you work so hard on a movie like that, and you wish more people would see it, but the marketing gets messed up and I think the studio [Warner Bros] dropped the ball on it.

Question: I think it will be a big cult movie.
RR: I hope so. It was an amazing experience, and Brian De Palma is such a huge talent, and an underrated director.

Fort Worth, TX: In your opinion, when I go to see this movie, what will I come away with as the most memorable scene?
Rebecca Romijn: Oooh! That depends on the individual, because there are a lot of great moments in the movie. It also depends on whether you're male or female. Magneto's escape from prison is really fantastic....there's also a tent scene with Wolverine that's pretty great.
Berkeley, CA: Did you do all your own stunts and fighting scenes?

Question: X2 is the second movie in which you had a makeout scene in a bathroom stall, with Femme Fatale being the first.
Rebecca Romijn: You're not the first person to bring that up. It's going to go on my resume. The girl that makes out in bathroom stalls. Hire me if you want a skanky makeout bathroom scene.

Question: Was it a coincidence, or did you ask for it?
RR: No, it's a total coincidence. Maybe they were inspired after they saw Femme Fatale.

Question: I was inspired after I saw Femme Fatale.
RR: You were?

The latest "X-Men" movie adventure considerably ups the romantic stakes. The blue-skinned metamorph Mystique, again played by Rebecca Romijn, shows her seductive side. "She's much more sexual in this film," says Romijn. "And she tries to use her ability to transform into others to take care of her sensual needs. At the same time, Mystique gets to display a little more humor - and some outrage," she adds.
