Jennifer Lawrence is one of the highest-paid actresses in the world. She has come a long way since her breakout role in the independent thriller Winter’s Bone. Now, she’s working on high-profile projects like the X-Men movie series, which has been a big hit.
From 2011 to 2019, Lawrence played the role of Mystique in several movies. The actor’s net worth really went up when she made her last appearance as the mutant. Supposedly, Lawrence made a lot more money for her work in X-Men: Dark Phoenix than Sophie Turner, who played the main female character in the movie.
Jennifer Lawrence played Mystique again in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), after the success of X-Men: First Class. In 2019, when the X-Men: Dark Phoenix was in its production phase, Lawrence moved on to other projects. But they asked her to record a long cameo at the beginning of the movie.
Even though Jennifer Lawrence was only in a few scenes of Dark Phoenix, the producers of the movie had to pay a lot of money to get her. BuzzFeed says that Lawrence was paid about $4.7 million for her work on Dark Phoenix. Things reports that Sophie Turner, who played Jean Grey/Phoenix in the movie, only got a little over $2 million for the role.
Lawrence’s last appearance as Mystique will be in Dark Phoenix. Fans don’t know if the actor could play Mystique again at some point, even though there will definitely be more X-Men movies coming out. Lawrence has had enough of high-profile franchise work after playing Mystique in the X-Men movies and Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movies.
