The ridiculously perfect January Jones recently talked to Hero Complex about her role of Emma Frost, aka The White Queen in Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming “X-Men: First Class”. Set for a Summer 2011 release, the film still has a month’s worth of shooting left before it heads into post.
On working out to fill Emma Frost’s ridiculously skimpy costumes:
It’s a lot of very body-conscious stuff. If you look at the comic book, she’s barely dressed. She’s got quite the bod, which is very intimidating. I’m thinking, ‘I’m supposed to be doing crunches on the plane. How am I gonna get buff in one day? I’m a petite person, so I didn’t want to go into a strict workout and eating regime. I would have disappeared entirely, and she’s very busty, very voluptuous, so I didn’t want to get rid of any of my curves.
Fortunately (for her, but not for us) she probably won’t have to worry too much about being overexposed, if those set pictures we saw of her all bundled up are any indication. Damn that ’60s wardrobe!
On Emma Frost the character:
Emma was a bespectacled, mousy child who had this power when she was young that she couldn’t quite harness, the telepathy, the mind-twisting stuff. She had a falling out with her father and went her own direction. Fans of the X-Men comics have a very set idea of these characters in their heads. I wanted to know as much as I could about her so I wasn’t disappointing anyone. I’m sure I will still disappoint someone.
Jones also kind of lets slip that Emma Frost will indeed morph into her diamond form at least once in the movie:
I don’t have to do all the crazy prosthetics. When I morph into my diamond form, it’s all done on computer.
So there you have it. Rest of the interview over at Hero Complex.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, “X-Men: First Class” co-stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, Rose Byrne, and Jennifer Lawrence hits theaters June 3, 2011.
