The Hole star made an appearance at a question and answer session for Montage of Heck, which tells the story of the late Nirvana frontman and features previously unseen home movies and pictures from his family's private collection.

Love admitted she had seen the film four times, and brushed away tears as she spoke about her late partner, who died in a suspected suicide in 1994.

She told the audience at the Spring Studios venue, "I experienced some shame this time (I watched the film)... Mostly I got really sad when I watched it before. But, you know, guilt, and what I could have done... I got to spend a little more time with Kurt... It's that punch-drunk love thing... where you met your soul mate and you're 25... With him, it was like a soul matey thing."
