Courtney Love thinks it would be ''stupid'' to cast Robert Pattinson as her late husband Kurt Cobain in a new movie of his life, and would prefer James McAvoy or Ryan Gosling to take on the role.
Speaking about rumours Robert Pattinson is set to play tragic Kurt, she said: "Isn't that so stupid, who would cast him? That's just wrong, no offence. I watched the 'Twilight' stuff very, very recently and I get it, it resonates with the teenage girl in me, I understand epic love of that nature; I write about it all the time. But isn't that silly?"
The 'Celebrity Skin' hitmaker told the Canadian Press she wants caSting approval and a say on The Script and hopes her producer pal Trudie Styler - the wife of Sting - will act as her "proxy" in making sure the movie is done "right".
The rocker - who doesn't think she will ever see the film as it would be too painful for her - claims she will scupper the project if 'Moon' producer Trudie declines to be involved.
Courtney, 45, has a 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean with Kurt, who committed suicide in April 1994.
