Oscar Isaac Was a Sweaty, Hot Mess while Filming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse

Renaldo Matadeen writing for CBR:

Isaac revealed the costume and makeup effects needed to play the villain on-screen led to an “excruciating” experience, which feels similar to Jennifer Lawrence’s past complaints about getting into costume to play Mystique over four X-Men movies.

“Apocalypse, that was excruciating, ” he said to GQ. “I didn’t know when I said yes that that was what was going to be happening. That I was going to be encased in glue, latex and a 40-pound suit — that I had to wear a cooling mechanism at all times.”

Funnily enough, I was just telling a friend of mine that X-Men: Apocalypse is the only film I haven’t liked Oscar Isaac in. After reading this, I completely understand why: he was miserable. Recreating Apocalypse’s look in a live-action film was always going to be difficult, but keeping Isaac away from the rest of the cast ended up showing in the performance.

If you feel like watching a film with a spectacular performance by Oscar Isaac, I recommend Operation Finale, which is a tense and thrilling story based on true events.
