Could have been a different movie...
In an interview with Howard Stern (via Perez Hilton), The Weinstein Company's Harvey Weinstein revealed that Anne Hathaway was almost cast in Jennifer Lawrence's role in Silver Linings Playbook. Mark Wahlberg was also almost cast in Bradley Cooper's role.
He said: "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. 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."
