Rebecca Romijn: What I really love about this festival is the pump and circumstance and the protocol and the ritual and that red carpet is just, it's like the most official, like THE red carpet, the most important red carpet in the world, you know what I mean? It feels so, it is exciting.
Interviewer: We had off course a lot of questions about the make-up. Now, I remember I actually talked to you for the first one and the second one. Is this process a lot easier than it was in the first and second films?
Rebecca Romijn: The effect that…, first of all it is so cool to play this super villain, you know, I mean, I didn’t…, I wasn’t huge…, I didn’t have a huge awareness of X-Men before I started and off course we have all become, you know, very engaged in what X-Men is all about since we worked on it, but yeah, I mean it is so cool to play a super villain. I love it, I love it and I think she is a really cool and sexy and angry character. I mean…, I totally get why she is fighting her fight and I really connect with her.

Rebecca Romijn was born on 06 November 1972, in Berkeley, California. She attended the University of California at Santa Cruz where she majored in Music. While studying she began modelling and moved to Paris, where she lived and worked for almost three years. Romijn's most famous movie role to date is as the shape-shifting Mystique in the X-Men franchise. She reprises her role in the final chapter of the trilogy - X Men: The Last Stand. In this movie we discover there is a cure for mutancy. Will these unique beings become frail humans?
Associated Press: Did you ever envy one another's superpowers?
Berry: I envied that I never really got to do my powers until the third movie. Fly and do electricity and spin and make a tornado like I got to do now. I envied that I never got to do what I do.
Paquin: I still never get to do anything. Three movies, absolutely no action. It's kind of amazing.
Romijn: Somebody's always got it worse than you.
Rebecca Romijn, who reprises the role of the blue mutant Mystique in the upcoming third X-Men film, told SCI FI Wire that director Brett Ratner had a completely different directing style from the franchise's previous director, Bryan Singer. "[They had] different energy levels," Romijn said in an interview at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., where she was promoting her new WB series, Pepper Dennis. "Bryan sort of quietly orchestrates how the scenes work, and Brett is very exuberant and over-the-top. A lot of energy."
Probably the best part of this quickie interview IESB did with Rebecca Romijn was when Robert Sanchez asks her about the difference between Brett Ratner and Bryan Singer. She immediately does this thing with her face like, "Okay, how do I make this guy look good right now?" Finally, she divulges that the two are very different. Ratner, according to her, has a "tremendous amount of energy" combined with a ton of enthusiasm, while Singer is quiet and more detail oriented. Not sure if that's a good thing, but I'm going to officially declare a tie in Round 1 of Ratner vs Singer.
