Does Angelina Jolie have anything against Jennifer Lawrence? If the latest gossip is to be believed, then Angelina is miffed that Jennifer stole the role in “Silver Linings Playbook” from her.
A source said, “Angelina desperately wanted the female lead in the movie ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. it was a prime role with great dialogue, and Angelina campaigned hard for it. But once the director saw Jennifer’s audition, it was no contest. Jennifer blew her out of the water, and Angie was enraged!”
The movie also stars Bradley Cooper in the male lead who befriends an unstable widow named Tiffany. The movie’s director David O. Russell said that Jennifer wasn’t mature enough for the role of Tiffany and had Angelina in line for the part.
He revealed, “We had a lot of major actresses in town interested in the role, from Angelina Jolie to some other big stars. Jennifer, we frankly thought, was too young.”
After she auditioned for the role on Skype, she was chosen for the role. Angelina was upset that she didn’t get to play the part of Tiffany, according to reports. A source said, “Angie was beside herself. She screeched, ‘What’s she got that I don’t have?’ The simple answer is youth. Angie’s getting older and the big parts are going to rising young stars like Jennifer.”
The snitch added, “Angie’s seething. It’s a juicy, award-winning part, and she thinks it should have been hers.”
