It's reported that this role was highly sought after by many in-demand young actresses, including Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively and Rachel McAdams.

Silver Linings will star Mark Wahlberg as Pat Peoples, a former high school teacher who returns home after four years in a mental institution. In the process of trying to win back his ex-wife, Pat befriends his neighbor Tiffany, a young, clinically depressed widow. Lawrence is vying for the role of Tiffany.

If all goes as planned, the Oscar nominee would film Silver Linings after she finishes shooting the much anticipated The Hunger Games. Production is expected to begin this fall.
