Wanted my ‘X-Men’ character to be darker: Jennifer Lawrence


lawrence-mystiqueActress Jennifer Lawrence says she wanted her villainous character of `Mystique` in `X-Men` franchise to be more notorious.

The 23-year-old Oscar-winner, who plays the blue-hued mutant shape shifter in the sci-fi film, said she often contemplated going off-script for the darker scenes, reported Contactmusic.

“I was struggling back and forth with wanting to get darker… There was one scene where I couldn`t get past thinking she`d shoot someone where she doesn`t in the script. We filmed it both ways, but I don`t know which one they`ll use,” Lawrence said.

The `Silver Linings Playbook` star, who would be next seen in `X-Men: Days of Future Past`, said she was delighted after learning that Bryan Singer was going to direct to the project.

“It was amazing! There was a tiny fan boy inside of me jumping up and down and screaming when he decided to direct,” she said.
