Countingdown Interview


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.

Following a screening of "X2: X-Men United" for the Society of Composers and Lyricists Tuesday night (July 15), director Bryan Singer revealed that he has just finished writing a treatment for a third film based on the Marvel comic book series. While details are still fuzzy, here's what we know so far: The film will likely be centered more on Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) story and Jean Grey's (Famke Janssen) transformation, while Storm (Halle Berry) may be completely absent or only appear in a cameo performance.

Real Detroit Interview

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.

SF Gate Interview

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.

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 But for the movie they say, "We think clothes are sort of outdated.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

CBS News Interview

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.

UGO Interview

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?
