Jennifer Lawrence has said that the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse movie would be her last one as Mystique.

The 24-year-old Academy Award winner said with a smile on her face that yes, it will be her last one in the famous superhero franchise, E! Online reported.

Lawrence's X-Men co-star and former boyfriend Nicholas Hoult also revealed that Apocalypse would be his final movie playing Beast. Apocalypse, which is set in the 1980s and directed by Bryan Singer, will hit the theaters on May 27, 2016.

Lawrence's news comes as no surprise as the actor is now among the most sought-after performers in Hollywood at the moment. She has signed director Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Lynsey Addario’s memoir, It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War. She will also be seen again with Bradley Cooper and director David O Russell for this Christmas’s awards contender Joy after she finishes filming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
