Jennifer Lawrence turned 22 yesterday. The last year has been a huge one for Jennifer, who played Katniss Everdeen in the megahit The Hunger Games. That's not her only franchise — she's also front and centre in the latest X-Men films. Jennifer also has Silver Linings Playbook and House at the End of the Street out this year. Jennifer, who's dating her X-Men costar Nicholas Hoult, is shaping up to be a strong leading lady. We love seeing her strike fashionable poses on the red carpet, or getting gorgeous in a magazine. In honour of her big day, we've rounded up 22 of her boldest moments. Click through to see Jennifer go bold — and happy birthday, Jennifer!
It's been 10 years since Rebecca Romijn played the blue-skinned Mystique on X-Men and now Jennifer Lawrence, who stars in the most recent film in the series, X-Men: First Class, is the lady covered in the royal-hued paint. But getting the scaly, marbled getup just the right hue and texture is no easy feat. In a behind-the-scenes video featured on the flick's soon-to-be-released Blu-ray and DVD, it's revealed that each time Jennifer's body paint and prosthetics were applied, it took a team of six makeup artists about seven hours to complete. Of the experience with her makeup team, Jennifer said, "It's like a sleepover, except I'm naked and being painted." Watch as Jennifer is airbrushed, splattered, and latexed; there's no CG here, folks. But beware: some parts include brief, albeit rather modest, nudity and may be NSFW.
X-Men: First Class launched into cinemas yesterday, and since it's a prequel set in the 1960s, we get to meet the mutants before they have fully developed their special powers. Since a few of the characters have appeared in previous X-Men movies, I thought we could see how they've grown up. Check out the actors who have played the older and younger versions of the comic book heroes.

We didn't see this one coming! January Jones has announced she is pregnant, with her rep releasing a simple statement to People earlier today. "January Jones is happy to announce that she is expecting her first child this fall." January split with beau Jason Sudeikis earlier this year and has been keeping a low profile on the dating scene ever since. We'll be seeing a lot more of January once she hits the promo trail for X-Men: First Class, baby-bump and all, which hits cinemas in June. Congrats, January!
If you're a fan of the X-Men franchise like we are, then this should be a treat for you: it's the first cast photo from X-Men: First Class! The star-studded cast is all done up as their mutant alter egos for the upcoming prequel, which hits cinemas this June. The film will take us back to meet younger versions of Professor X and Magneto, shedding light on how their friendship deteriorated to what we've seen in the X-Men films. To help keep your mutants straight, I've put together a handy who's who. There are also more photos after the jump.
