On Monday, the director of the famous franchise uploaded to Twitter a photo of Lawrence done up like Mystique for all the internet to see.

“I’m so excited because I’m going to wear a body suit,” Lawrence told reporters of her new role in February. For “First Class,” Lawrence went through hours of makeup and body painting; six makeup artists put Lawrence’s “First Class” look together.

“[The body suit] will be from neck down so it will cut out time and the blisters,” she said.

The 22-year-old has had to stay in good shape for both this latest X-Men film and Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Last year, she talked to the media about her fitness M.O. “I don’t diet. I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?”

Last month the first trailer of the upcoming part of Hunger Games was released. Liam Hemsworth, who plays District 12 hunter and Gale Hawthorne in the blockbuster franchise, unveiled the first ”Catching Fire” trailer during the MTV Movie Awards broadcast. The first look was teased earlier in April with a seven-second glimpse of the festivities.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” picks up after ”The Hunger Games” left off, with Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark (Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson) celebrating their victory at the 74th annual Hunger Games and keeping up the appearance of their manufactured love affair.

Philip Seymour Hoffman, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, Jeffrey Wright, Elizabeth Banks, Jena Malone and Sam Claflin are also starred in the film, which is directed by Frances Lawrence.

In the released trailer, Sutherland (as President Snow) and Hoffman (as Plutarch Heavensbee) are shown discussing how Katniss’ flouting of authority could lead to a revolution. Threatens Snow: “She has to be eliminated.”

The first film in the franchise — which hit theatres last year — earned more than $686 million at the worldwide box office. “Hunger Games” became champion its opening weekend, snagging a whopping $155 million in ticket sales.

“Hunger Games” also dominated 21st annual MTV Movie Awards, securing the highest number of trophies.

“I’ve wanted to hold a golden popcorn since I was 4 years old,” said Hutcherson, as he accepted the award from Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller.

“It’s insane too, because every single one of those actors I admire and I want to be, so to even be up here is blowing my mind right now.”

The owner of the award thanked “Hunger Games” author Suzanne Collins, director Gary Oldman, his producers like Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik, Lionsgate and, of course, the fans.

“You guys are the best fans in the world,” he gushed. “You’re crazy and passionate and you make our job amazing.”

Besides, “The Hunger Games” devoured the competition at the People’s Choice Awards, emerging the top victor with five trophies.

‘Hunger Games’ is a survival drama based on the first of three novels wrote by Suzanne Collins. Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss Everdeen, a teen girl who fights in a televised battle-to-the-death ordered by her society’s rulers. Everdeen becomes a beacon of hope for freedom against the totalitarian government.
