It was rumored that Robert Pattinson was offered a role to play Kurt Cobain in a biopic about the band Nirvana, to which Courtney Love did not react too positively about. This turned out to be just a rumor, and Robert says he was never offered the role, but does know that he wouldn’t be suitable to play Kurt:

“I love Nirvana, but I love them a bit too much, I’d be embarrassed [to play Kurt Cobain] – I didn’t get offered it. I’m nothing like him, it’s ridiculous. You see all these comments, like from Courtney Love saying ‘What the f**k! He’s totally wrong for it’ and I’m like, ‘I f**king said no, you dick!'”

Scarlett Johansson has confirmed that she is interested in playing the role of Courtney for the film:

“I know that there is a script. That’s as much as I know about it. I’m a big fan of Courtney’s, and I think she’s very, very talented. But I don’t know anything about the project. I think the idea is interesting and intriguing, but I would have to really wrap my head around it.”

Courtney is expected to act as an adviser on the project.
