This is easily one of the coolest things we have ever done over the last 11 years!!!!
Anne Hathaway Was Given Jennifer Lawrence's Role In Silver Linings Playbook?! Get The Casting Confession HERE!
They both won Oscars last year, so it's all good!
In a new interview with Howard Stern, studio head Harvey Weinstein revealed Anne Hathaway was originally given Jennifer Lawrence's award-winning role in Silver Linings Playbook alongside Mark Walhberg—instead of Bradley Cooper!
But WHY did the Princess Diaries star leave the mega-successful project?!
"We had Annie and then we had Mark . . . then whatever happened, happened. David and Anne had some creative differences. They didn't see eye-to-eye."
And once the original casting didn't work out, the film's producers knew they had to switch it up fast:
"Then Jennifer Lawrence and two or three other actress came in, and the minute we saw Jennifer Lawrence's tape . . . Because I said, 'How the hell are we gonna replace Annie?' And then this amazing creature walked in who is a brilliant actress, and so much fun, and she won an Oscar."
Guess there's truly a silver lining to anything!
We're glad J-Law and Brad ended up executing the roles in the end, because they were pure brilliance!
