Argento: 'I Don't Play Love'

ASIA ARGENTO has blasted reports she portrays rock widow COURTNEY LOVE in LAST DAYS - a screen tribute to late grunge icon KURT COBAIN.

The Latina beauty insists her character is very different from Cobain's former wife.

However, she concedes working on the GUS VAN SANT film, which premieres at this year's CANNES FILM FESTIVAL this month (MAY05), brought her closer to Love's plight.

Argento says, "It's been written that I play Courtney Love, and it's not true. I'm so upset. I don't know why people say that.

"I feel very sorry for her. She's been demonised and I feel sorry for anybody that's lost like that.

"But no, I play a character that's very dorky."
