Rebecca Romijn-Stamos's Feminine Mystique
There's something funny going on with Rebecca Romijn-Stamos
! The former House of Style
host has proven her comedic chops with small, well-received roles in Just Shoot Me
and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
, and she feels her carefree attitude will help her land bigger and better acting projects.
"There are a million beautiful blondes out there," the 27-year-old tells Cosmopolitan. "I think a lot of my success came down to the fact that I'm fun and I get along with everyone."
Romijn-Stamos's easygoing disposition served her well on the set of the upcoming X-Men flick: She endured 10 hours of blue body makeup each day for her role as villainess Mystique. "The painting was torturous," she admits. "When they finished my face, they'd say, 'All right, bend over.' They'd paint me down there. I left a trail wherever I went. My last night, I did a celebratory shot of tequila with the people from special effects, and that, combined with the paint I'd been breathing all day long, made me sick. I vomited blue ? so gross."
How does former Full House star John Stamos cope with his wife's impending superstardom? "Sometimes one person has the heat and the other person doesn't," Romijn-Stamos casually explains. "Then it all comes back. It's cyclical."
Stamos was nervous, not resentful, when his wife switched to acting. "I didn't want her to have to deal with all the rejection, but it looks like she doesn't have to because everybody just loves her," he says.
Romijn-Stamos obviously returns her husband's affection: For his birthday party, she dressed as John, circa 1985. "I wore a black mullet wig and big sideburns like he had when he was Blackie [Parrish] on General Hospital. I finished the look off with black leather pants and drumsticks in my back pocket."
Is that a drumstick in your pocket, Rebecca?
