Cumming's X-Men Moans

Actor ALAN CUMMING enjoyed moaning to his X-MEN 2 co-star REBECCA ROMIJN-STAMOS about the hours they had to spend in make-up.

Bisexual Cumming - who plays mutant NIGHTCRAWLER in the film - was spayed blue and had to wear false teeth, contact lenses, hooves and a tail for the part.

He says, "Rebecca (who plays MYSTIQUE) and I would just b**** away at how miserable our lives were. It was good having someone who knew what it was like.

"Everyone was very sympathetic but you did think, 'You have no f****** idea, do you?'

"The one thing I did find out from chatting to Rebecca is that Mystique is, according to the comic books, my mother and ANNA PAQUIN's character is my sister.

"Talk about the Mid-West being inbred, those mutants seem to go at it too."
