  • "That was weird because I wasn't an X-Men fan. I had just come back from Shanghai after Shanghai Kiss, and I actually told Brett that I didn't feel like I was right for it. Brett was just like, "oh just come over," and I was like, "what am I playing?" And he said, "I don't know, we'll figure something out for you." So it was kind of like that. I think the thing with the character's spikes was really because Brett wanted something visual -- he wanted a power he could see. And so I remember spending days and days and days with him in the chair trying to build this prosthetic on me, which ended up changing my face too much, that they ended up going with special effects. But, you know, that wasn't really a part where there was something for me to do -- it was just a lot of posing and looking, I guess, mutant-like. Imagining a bridge falling apart, when there was nothing there. So that was new, and I kind of took it as, "Oh, this is a part of filmmaking that I don't know," and so it's good in that respect. But when I think of roles and experiences on films, X-Men doesn't really register because there wasn't really anything for me to play."
