Jennifer Lawrence Is Leaving the 'X-Men' Franchise

Jennifer Lawrence Is Leaving the 'X-Men' Franchise

Jennifer Lawrence steps out of her hotel with her entourage while walking her dog on Monday morning (March 23) in New York City.

The 24-year-old actress chatted with MTV this weekend and revealed she is done with the X-Men franchise.

“It is my last one, actually,” Jennifer said about the upcoming movie Apocalypse.

Jennifer is in town to promote her movie Serena and she opened up with Vogue about how she got Bradley Cooper to work with her again.

“I forced him to do it—a little bit,” Jennifer teased. “I read the script while we were working on Silver Linings Playbook. And any male role is going to make me think of Bradley because he is the best… We never [bicker]. Never about where to go to dinner. [And] Coop did things that still make me laugh.”

    Shes got so much hate from x-men fans because shes not Rebecca Romijn, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique is as awesome as Rebeccas! And tbh Jennifer is an all round better actress than Rebecca. I’m sad to see Jennifer Lawrence out of x-men.

  • Giulia

    I think that she’s happy to doesn’t make others X-men. Now she cans have every franchise she wants

  • mandyz

    She may be a better actress than Rebecca, but Rebecca never claimed to be a serious actress in her career. In the end, Rebecca owned Mystique from her overall look to the fierce attitude she exuded.

  • mandyz

    I like Jens jacket, wonder if the fur is faux though. If it’s faux fur, it looks very high quality compared to most products that you can tell it’s faux.

  • Courtney

    Um, JJ, those pics were taken yesterday morning. She and Bradley left New York yesterday afternoon and they’re filming in Massachusetts today.

  • Lily Ross

    Bradley would marry her in a heartbeat they look great together.

  • i love people

    Director matt Vaughan said he picked jennifer instead of so many models available now a days becoz unlike rebeccas mystique , jen’s mystique needed somone who could act and portray the transformation from a young mystique to a villain. Though rebecca was great as mystique she certainly wouldnt have been better than jen, I think in these new x men movies. They have cast her perfectly , but I am happy she is now out becoz she has much better roles to do with the best directors in the business.

    it’s a good thing … most of the older X-men will be leaving … leaving the new younger cast they have announced as the focus going forward

  • lshelton22

    Good, that franchise is beneath her.

  • Joolz

    I like both ladies as Mystique. I think they both did amazing jobs as her. Two totally different personalities. I can’t wait to see Apocalypse.

  • Davis

    They’re the only people who will work with O russell

  • Davis

    She’s hardly Anne Marie Duff, franchises like that made her

  • Me

    She first has to sleep with the director to make more movies! its her specialty

  • Name

    Not surprised at this at all. When she signed on to do 3 “X-Men” movies, she had just ended a string of doing serious roles in indie films, the last one being “Winter’s Bone”. She was looking for a change, and decided “X-Men” was it. This was before she was nominated for an Oscar, before “Hunger Games”, before all the fame.

    Since the first one’s release, Lawrence has skyrocketed to stardom. She has so many movies lined up, she’ll be busy non-stop for the next 3 years or so. The time needed to shoot both the last and this “X-Men” movie (about 4-5 months) has made it difficult for Lawrence to have time for some of those other movies she’s been asked to do.

    Not having to do any more “X-Men”, along with no more “Hunger Games” movies, will give her more time to finally pursue the other movies she’s wanted to do and should be doing to further her acting career.

  • Nada Nada Nada

    True.

  • hunter

    no she’s too smart for him

  • Kevin C. François

    and she slept with Bryan Singer I guess.

  • Courtney

    Did you get my last post to you about the video of Jen and Bradley leaving the hotel?

  • Name

    Yes I did. Did you get the job?

  • Courtney

    I got word yesterday and I didn’t get it :( Still, there are other options that I’m going for. All I can do for the moment.

  • Davis

    She’s just going to to safe cookie cutter movies now

  • Courtney

    I’ve noticed she’s with her entourage more and more. While I know and understand that she has to have her bodyguards with her for her safety and she also has the right to refuse pictures when she wants to in her personal time, I came across something on my Twitter timeline: Someone said that having her bodyguard and others with her for her safety was just an excuse, that she’s just not into talking with her fans when she’s out in public. I may be wrong, but I don’t recall seeing her team with her this much in previous years. I hope and think the reason is maybe the nude photo leak scarred her more than she lets on in interviews. She does seem more guarded (and for good reason) but my concern is that she comes across as antisocial and unfriendly to get fans. I’ve heard some great encounters with Jennifer from random people in Boston over the last month though. I’m also tired and stressed and that’s the reason for this little outpouring. I still believe she’s nice and good, but these doubts happen once in a while.

    Jennifer is required to have security with her when she’s on work related business, like her NYC trip, even while just walking the dog. She’s still there for work. She doesn’t have security with her when she’s in LA while not working, unless it’s for an event, say a concert or something. Or in KY, unless again, at an event, such as the basketball game. She’s also more famous than she’s ever been before, which is also a reason to have security with her. It’s certainly not an excuse just because she doesn’t like talking to fans like that person claimed. And really, you hope what happened to her last summer scarred her more than she’s letting on and that that’s the reason for the security rather than her being “anti-social”? That sounds pretty messed up in my opinion.
    But again, her having security with her while in NYC or Boston is required. Not because she doesn’t want to talk to fans or have them approach her, even though I’m sure she’s glad to have her bodyguard there to tell them no. I know I am!

  • Courtney

    I meant no disrespect in my comment. I’m sorry. Like I said, I’m tired and stressed. I understand why she needs security. I only meant that I hope she hadn’t completely blown her fans off. I’m sorry for my word choice. She didn’t deserve the nude photo leak. I acknowledge the fan interactions and they were good. Just reading too much into everything I suppose.

  • Denise

    It’s normal that Jennifer have near the security when she’s working..all the celebrities or almost,have the security. Said this..i think that she has changed after the Oscar; before her win she was genuine,natural..now is a bit different,i think that she is conscious to be a great actress with a good future in front,after her win; but sometimes she exaggerate. Maybe because she is young.

  • Name

    You need to quit stressing about what other people think about her. If they don’t like her, they’ll find their own reasons, even if she walked around without bodyguards. When she’s not working and out on her own, she’s been friendly (as much as her one bodyguard allows). When she’s at premieres and knows there’s security, she’s very friendly and open with fans. She can only do so much without endangering herself-her contracts won’t allow it. That’s why she’s so heavily guarded at times.

  • Davis

    She’s friendly as premiere because she knows the media is there so has to act like a sweetheart. She’s Kirsten Stewart times a hundred.

  • Davis

    She’s conscious to be famous and make money then complain about it not acting
