"When I heard the news I was 20 per cent excited and 80 per cent terrified," Rebecca Romijn says, easing into a comfortable chair in her ranch in the Santa Monica hills. "It was such a huge responsibility. I didn't want to let him down. I'd heard stories about him and he's got a reputation for being a bear sometimes. It turned out that he was a little moody - you never knew which Brian you were going to get - but once we started working together it was great. He was very patient as I needed help with a lot of stuff - I'm still fairly green."

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 But for the movie they say, "We think clothes are sort of outdated.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

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?

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.

Don't let Rebecca Romijn' sexy moves as an exotic dancer in her new movie Femme Fatale fool you. It took a lot of sweat to put her at ease for her striptease! "I had somebody work with me to teach me some moves," she confides. "I didn't know how to do that!" Rebecca, 30, hired a choreographer to show her all kinds of provocative poses. Then she practiced her routine on hubby John Stamos, 39. But even though he gave her pole performance a thumbs-up, she still downed a shot of tequila to take the edge off before filming.

Question: You play a sultry jewel thief in Femme Fatale. Should we keep our hands on our, er, valuables during this interview?
Rebecca: I'd be a terrible jewel thief in real life. The only thing I can compare it to - because I have no actual experience in the world of jewel theft - is shoplifting or making crank calls. And I'm no good at either of those. I can't keep a straight face; I just laugh.
