Jennifer Lawrence will be spared the body paint that gave her an allergic reaction when she reprises her role as Mystique in upcoming superhero movie X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The Oscar winner suffered for her art while filming X-Men prequel X-Men: First Class as she sat in the make-up chair for up to eight hours a day being covered in paint to play the blue-skinned shape shifter.

A specialist doctor was called to the set to tend to the actress when her skin broke out in rashes and boils, but now Lawrence is breathing a sigh of relief after learning she will wear a bodysuit when she begins filming her next X-Men outing in May.

"I'm so excited because I'm going to wear a body suit," she told EOnline.com. "It will be from (the) neck down so it will cut out time and the blisters."

However, Lawrence, who picked up an Academy Award last month for Silver Linings Playbook, admits she has been too busy to read the X-Men script.

"I haven't read the script yet," she added. "I haven't had 30 minutes. They literally gave me the script and I was like, 'I can't read this until Monday."'
