Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell make up perhaps one of today’s most famous director-actor duos. But that partnership almost didn’t happen.

Speaking at the Tribeca Film Festival Saturday night for its Directors Series, Russell revealed that Lawrence was the last person cast in both their first movie together, “Silver Linings Playbook,” and their second, “American Hustle.”

For “Silver Linings,” Russell said, “we thought you were too young and there were other actresses in the front of the line who were close to getting the role.” As for “American Hustle,” however, Lawrence was busy with other movies and “technically not available.”

Is there an ‘American Hustle’ curse at the Oscars?
Back in late 2013, David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” premiered to favorable reviews and enthusiastic audience reaction. It was immediately hailed as a serious Oscar contender, challenging frontrunners “12 Years a Slave” and “Gravity.”

American Hustle” got off to a strong start at the Golden Globe Awards, where it won three of its seven nominations: Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy (Amy Adams) and Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture (Jennifer Lawrence.) It was the most honored film of the evening.

When the Oscar nominations were announced, “Hustle” bustled its way to an impressive ten nods, tying it with “Gravity.” “Hustle” notably received bids in all four acting categories, with Christian Bale (Best Actor) and Bradley Cooper (Best Supporting Actor) joining Adams and Lawrence. Russell had worked similar magic the previous year with “Silver Linings Playbook.”
