From Winter's Bone? The Bill Engvall Show?

Oh, really? I apologize for not hearing about her. I may have seen her image but not known her name prior to First Class.

Hey, I wasn't really tuned into things back in 2011. I only just came online two years earlier. Prior to 2009 I didn't even have a computer.

I didn't mind having internet access being an option and not a necessity.

That is true. they made Mystique a lead role before Jen achieved the success she has now. She was just nominated for a Oscar for her role in Winter's Bone. And that was her breakout role. because up to that her biggest role was on The Bill Engvall show. It wasn't until the first Hunger Games and winning the Oscar for SLP she became a mega super star.

I've finished my fifth draft of the script with Jen in mind as the lead. It's a comedy called Life As Liz. PM if interested in hearing more about it. Or even possibly reading it.

I've also finished 15 full length original scripts. here is a blog for them.

I can say that. Especially when she was in Days of Future Past, that's when she began to receive strong venom, that the movie was based solely around her ( though Hugh, James and Michael had equal airtime). They said Jen acquired that to attract her Hunger Games fanbase.

Well, the role of Mystique had been written in First Class long before Jen got cast. Jen wasn't that well known prior to that. True, First Class did get Jennifer a lot more publicity which is why she got The Hunger Games, but Mystique wasn't written with Jen in mind, although she did do the character justice.

Oh, I wish I had watched the Bill Engvall Show now, Kip. She was so hot in it.

It wasn't until Days of Future Past, when she got heavily criticized. That antis claimed she took over the entire movie. That she is the female version of Wolverine. She is back because they want to attract her hardcore fans from THG. I remember those comments clearly on Twitter, youtube, and comicbook sites. That's my stance on it.

Jen got venom? I don't remember that. If she did it was only for the same reasons that they did it to Anne Hathaway, because they just wanted to hate on her because she was so good. Days of Future Past got praised for being the best X-Men film ever. And Jen as Mystique was a big part of it. Anyone who has an issue can blame the writers. They already increased Mystique's role in First Class long before Jen became a star.

Days of Future Past wasn't the best X-Men film. First Class far outshone it.

Yeah she got venom at each area since back in DOFP. First Class not much, but DOFP the shade was high, on how she was promoted for the movie. They called her the new Wolverine.
They had issue with Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer, but it was small potatoes to the flak she got. I love DOFP too.
