When rumors swirled that broody Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson might tackle the plum of role of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in a biopic about Cobain's life, his widow, the always outspoken, publicity-hungry Courtney Love went crazy, saying the Pattinson was all wrong for the role. Apparently, C Love didn't check her facts, according to an interview that Pattinson conducted with the Daily Mirror. He said, "And you see all these comments, like from Courtney Love, saying 'What the fuck! He's totally wrong for it.' And I'm like, 'I fucking said no, you dick!' I didn't get offered it. For one thing, I'm too tall, and I can't sing like him, I'm nothing like him! It's ridiculous." Pattinson assured the paper of his love for Nirvana, saying, "I love them a bit too much. I'd be embarrassed," as to why else he would not have taken the role.
How will Courtney Love respond to Bobby's comments? She will probably try to turn this into another one of her media circus stunts. Isn't that getting old, after two decades?
