Who is your favourite Mystique rebecca romijn or Jenifer Lawrence tell me

Rebecca Romijn had more of a "presence". Maybe it has to do with character development? I'm not sure

But Rebecca had her snake-like moves down perfectly, and Jennifer was just....young

I wasn't really sold on either, but between the two I guess I'd go with Rebecca Romijn. She at least got the sinister/deadly aspects of the character down fairly well.

I liked Rebecca better but since its a little older movie her fighting was kind of lamer then the new one but I like them both.

i liked Jennifer.

I though she played a young mystique brilliantly as she showed how she stuck between two sides.

Lawrence to me, has always been overrated. Pretty face, mediocre actor. Romijn I thought did a marvelous job, however. She is my pick.

gotta say neither, mainly cause i've always hated the nude scaley oily haired design they went for.

I kind of agree. I'd have much preferred her to be wearing some clothes when she's in her blue form.

I haven't read loads of her comics, but I've read most of her solo series, and a few X-Factors, and the film versions of her don't really look right. Was she ever scaly in the comics?

But if I had to pick, Rebecca Romijn.

Bah, I already posted on this 9 days ago. I wanted to comment again. Well -- I will anyway! Romijn!

Rebecca Romijn made Mystique the best part of the X-Men films.

rebbeca romijn. although, jennifer lawrence did  add some humanity to the young mystique.

Definitely Rebecca Romijn. Whenever I see somewhere else like Chuck or NTSD:SF:SUV I always think of mystique. She was a great casting choice. I did like J-Law for young mystique though. She really made her mystique distinct from Romijn, much more emotional and vulnerable. I kinda wanna see what events in the movie timeline lead to her becoming the badass Romijn version.

Jennifer Lawrence is just a much better actress overall. More character and less generic vamp.

Seriously--- someone point out how Jennifer Lawrence is ANYTHING like Mystique????

Sure Rebecca's Mystique isn't as vocal as comic Mystique, but she was Amazing overall.

Maybe JLaw had better material and is probably the more accomplished actress (at the time this is written) but Romijn is still the better Mystique in terms of appearance. She looked comparably better in blue. She was a fashion model and has the better body proportion when nude with those incredible long legs of hers. I love JLaw as an actress but in this case, Rebecca wins hands down.

I prefer Rebecca Romjin as Mystique. She had the physique (rhymes!), the ruthless personality, and will always remain the definitive movie Mystique for me.

That being said, I prefer Jennifer Lawrence's human form. :D

Rebecca Romijin Mystique she is so badass and sexy

Rebecca Romijin Mystique she is so badass and sexy

she's my favorite version of mystique. too bad they couldn't replace rogue and make her more like the 90's x-men cartoon.

I love Jennifer Lawrence but Rebecca Romijin was perfect in the role for what she was given.

Having her AND Rose Byrne in the same movie probably swayed my opinion of First Class.

Jennifer Lawrence definitely presented the more rounded character, but, come on, have mercy.

Personally Rebecca is by far better. Jennifer is not comfortable with the role as that is ok as a young Mystique. Rebecca has the lithe and mystical qualities that the role requires and is a much more an authentic polished actress . Jennifer is great at playing herself. Becoming someone else requires more training. I love Jennifer's awkwardness as the young Mystique but am anxious to see a more mature Mystique return and Rebecca is fantastic at playing that role. She was my favorite in all of the XMen. But now with Jennifer I have other favorites. I love what Bryan Singer has done with the XMen film series!!! Absolutely brilliant!
