Courtney Love-s Mcavoy For Kurt Role16 April 2010
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.
Courtney Love-s Mcavoy For Kurt 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.
