Courtney Love: Robert Pattinson Shouldn't Play Kurt Cobain
Seems like too much teen spirit.
In an interview with The Canadian Press, Courtney Love slams rumors that she handpicked Robert Pattinson to play 90s grunge legend Kurt Cobain in an upcoming biopic. "Isn't that so stupid, who would cast him?" she says. "That's just wrong, no offense."
Her problem with Pattinson, 23? He's too much of a teenybopper.
"I watched the Twilight stuff very, very recently and I get it, it resonates with the teenaged girl in me, I understand epic love of that nature; I write about it all the time," Love, 45, says. "But isn't that silly?"
Who would she pick?
Ryan Gosling or Scottish actor James McAvoy.
She says she probably will never sit through the entire film - which is still in early production stages - because it would be too difficult. But she wants to approve casting and the script.
She says she hopes her pal, film producer Trudie Styler (wife of Sting), will act as her "proxy" to ensure the movie is done right. If Styler isn't involved, Love says she might scrap plans for the film altogether.
