Anne Hathaway could have been a double winner at the Oscars last year (13) if she hadn't dropped out of Silver Linings Playbook due to creative differences with director David O. Russell.

The film's producer, Harvey Weinstein, has revealed Hathaway was the first choice to play mentally-unstable Tiffany Maxwell in the movie, but she fell out with Russell and was replaced by Jennifer Lawrence.

Both women won Oscars - Lawrence took home a Best Actress award and Hathaway a Best Supporting Actress honour for Les Miserables.

Weinstein tells radio host Howard Stern, "Silver Linings Playbook was originally going to be with Anne Hathaway and Mark Wahlberg... and then Anne wasn't doing it. And she's marvellous, and wonderful and she was my choice, I love her.

"We had Annie and then we had Mark... (and) 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...

"I said, 'How the hell are we gonna replace Annie?' And then this amazing creature walked in."

Wahlberg's role went to Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his performance.
