The Advocate Interview

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 But for the movie they say, "We think clothes are sort of outdated.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.

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.

Why Rebecca Romijn felt blue on 'X2' -- Five hours of makeup application had the model/actress, who plays villain Mystique, seeing red. Despite walking naked through the snows of northern Alberta, Rebecca Romijn (who plays azure-skinned, clothing-averse Mystique in 'X2') always maintained a stiff (frozen?) upper lip. They put down fake snow on top of the real snow -- basically potato flakes,'' the 30-year-old actress reports cheerfully. 'So between takes, there'd be three people -- including Ian McKellen -- scraping gummy, disgusting potato goo off my feet.' Sounds lovely.

Director Bryan Singer won't say much about the upcoming sequel to the hit comic-book adventure "X-Men." The story is shrouded in secrecy, but he can reveal this: It's set for release on May 2, 2003. "I can tell fans that we'll have some new characters is this one, some of them young and others old," Singer told the Associated Press on Wednesday. Last year's sci-fi epic "X-Men" starred Patrick Stewart as benevolent psychic Professor X and Sir Ian McKellen as megalomaniacal metal-shifter Magneto, leaders of two rival factions of mutants.

For Rebecca Romijn, having the looks of a model wasn't as important as having the patience of a model on the set of X-Men, opening July 14, 2000.

The former MTV House of Style host, who plays the mutant villain Mystique in the action film, endured makeup sessions that lasted six to eight hours, which was how long it took to apply about 70 self-sticking silicon scales to her body and paint her bright blue.

Maxim Interview

Maxim: Our villain character, Mystique, is shapely and a shapechanger. If you possessed her superpower in real life. who would you morph into?
Rebecca: How about Pamela Anderson so I could have sex with Tommy Lee? [Laughs] No I'm kidding. Although that's probably your fantasy of me. Actually I'd morph into either Ben or Jerry so I could walk into any Ben & Jerry's store and get free ice cream anytime I wanted.
