Courtney Does NOT Want R-Patz To Play Kurt Cobain! Who Then?

| Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm FlickersCourtney LoveRyan GoslingJames McAvoyTwilightRobert Pattinson


Sorry, RPatz!

We guess you're far too sparkly for Courtney Love's liking!!

The rocker has denied reports that she wants the Twilight star to play her late husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in an upcoming biopic about his life!

She says:

"Isn't that so stupid, who would cast him? That's just wrong, no offense (to Pattinson). I watched the Twilight stuff very, very recently and I get it, it resonates with the teenaged girl in me, I understand epic love of that nature; I write about it all the time. But isn't that silly?"

HA! We agree with Love's sentiments, but we think she needs to watch Rob in a film where he actually shows his talents as an actor!! NO ONE's abilities come off well when they have to recite that HOrrific material!

Love said she'd prefer to see either Ryan Gosling or James McAvoy play Cobain, and we can understand why she'd pick them - they would both do a great job with the part!!

What do U think?? Would U prefer to see RPatz, Ryan, or James take the role??

  1. 1

    why on earth would anyone care what this rancid junkie slag thinks?

  2. 2

    i think james mcavoy would be a wonderful choice…. all the emotion are in the eyes :)

  3. 3


    Robert P. doesn't even look like Kurt Cobain Ö

  4. 4

    Ryan Gosling for sure!

  5. 5

    Out of those choices? I'd say James McAvoy. Although, Michael Pitt would be a better choice but he sullied that all up by doing that piece of crap Gus Van Sant movie loosely based on Cobains life. There HAS to be someone bette. Someone who resembles Kurt just a little.

  6. 6

    lame how you insult twilight…its successful for a reason.

  7. 7

    A film about cobain has already been done

  8. 8


  9. 9

    I would love to see James McAvoy cause he's HOT!!!

  10. 10

    I think Robert should get the role - he is perfect for the job!

  11. 11

    what about johnny depp, court??

  12. 12

    James McAvoy would be a fantastic choice. He's a wonderful actor and could really pull off the rock star vibe. He is one of the most talented actors around and should definitely be cast. And I actually agree that Scarlett Johannssen would be a good choice for Courtney's part. She sings beautifully and is also versatile acting-wise.

  13. 13

    Jared Leto would be great

  14. 14


  15. 15

    joe anderson from across the universe should be cast….he looks just like kurt cobain!

  16. 16

    Ryan Gosling or Jared Leto since he's an actual musician and he has Kurt's beautiful blue eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. 17

    Does anyone else notice how sober and sane Courtney is sounding? She actually made sense and it's a little bit scary.

  18. 18

    JARED LETO as Kurt Cobain!

  19. Dozi says – reply to this


    Emile Hirsch would be the perfect cast to me. I cant think of any other actor at any time at any age that would be better cast in that role.

  20. 20

    Re: twihard13 – twilight is horrendous material, but you wouldn't know that would you "twihard," and Courtney Love is right, theres no way robert could play Kurt Cobain

  21. 21

    pffft NONE OF THE ABOVE. Ewan Mcgregor!!!! Velvet Goldmine, thats all ya need to see.

  22. 22

    I think Joe Anderson who played in Across the Universe he is a great actor and looks just like him

  23. 23

    Re: cekace – Definitely Joe Anderson!

  24. 24

    Why would anyone try to quote Courtney Love? She can't remember a dang thing from one day to the next. I've got a
    dirty bathroom mop that could play Courtney.

  25. 25

    Best choice: Charlie Hunnam from Sons of Anarchy

  26. 26

    CHARLIE HUNNAM!!! He'd perfect! he looks like him and he's an amazing actor. He's on Sons of Anarchy!

  27. 27

    either or will do fine.
    although i think there should be an unknown actor playing him. someone that REALLY can act.
    just not rpatz

  28. 28

    James McAvoy MAYBE, but Ryan Gosling HELL NO

  29. 29

    How about James Franco instead. He's very yummy to look at. :P

  30. 30

    Joe Anderson from Across the Universe and The Crazies would be perfect.

  31. 31

    rpatz u gotta be kidding us perez…anybody remember the bomb "remember me"?!
    looks like without the twilight hype rpatz is just another overrated hunk "actor" isnt he!;)
    rob is stiff and makes keanu look like an oscar actor.

  32. 32

    JARED LETO! They look so much alike… both super hot. Hmm, would Leto play Cobain?

  33. 33

    Re: PixieDust01 – Oh, totally

  34. 34

    Re: cekace – SO true!

  35. 35

    Re: Death1sMyGift – I was thinking the same thing. Michael Pitt was amazing in that movie!

  36. 36

    James McAvoy or Jared Leto would both be great choices! We know that James is a great actor but I think Jared gets the shitty end of the acting stick. Jared Leto is a much better actor than ppl realize, and one day he will pick a role that will finally show us that. He kinda looks like Cobain and he has that vacant blue eyed stare that Cobain had, so he would be a perfect fit. (In my opinion).

  37. 37

    I agree with Courtney..i just can't see RPatz playing Corbain… Ryan Gosling would be more suitable.

  38. 38

    I think Josh Holloway would be perfect for it. He's getting ready to have some time on his hands, too.

  39. 39

    I don't think Robert would work but maybe Michael Pitt, he was in murder by numbers with Ryan Gosling. He would be the best Kurt Cobain!

  40. 40


  41. 41

    Hands down Josh Holloway. Then Jared Leto, Kellan Lutz, Tom Welling, Hayden Christiensen, Aleksander Skarsgard or Kellan Lutz.

  42. 42

    Joe Anderson looks just like Kurt Cobain, can sing and play guitar and if you see him in Across the Universe, esp. in the Happiness s a Warm Gun sequence- that IS Kurt Cobain!

  43. 43

    hmm how about courtney stops making money off of kurt and NO ONE play kurt cobain?!?! JEEZUS, really, perez? ur asking which A List Hollywood star should play cobain? NONE. Because he hated the fame, and everyone should respect the dead and his wishes when he was alive, especially his ex wife. this pole is bull. and anyone who answered sucks. U ALL SUCK. PEACE

  44. 44

    I think that Joe Anderson would be perfect for the role. I have no idea who he is and Ive never seen his acting but I guess if were going looks wise then I pick him. If were going acting wise I pick Robert Pattinson not becuase of his Twilight performance but becuase of his Remember Me performance. I think that whoever gets to play him it would be an honor. I guess the only thing that made me want to comment on this is the fact that Courtney Love makes it sound like the only reason she doesnt want robert to be kurt in the movie is JUST because of twilight but what she doesnt realize is that think of how much money the movie will make becuase its about kurt cobain and then on top of the fact that people will only go see the movie becuase of robert…sounds like a lot of money to me so why wouldnt she want robert to play him?

  45. 45

    Jared leto should do it!!! they look exactly the same, and he would kill the part!

  46. 46

    who is either….

  47. 47

    i'm not saying RPatz isn't a deep guy, but hes a little too mainstream to be playing someone as deep and dark like Kurt.

  48. 48

    A cardboard cutout of Robert Pattinson would do a better acting job than Robert Pattinson.

  49. 49

    Jared Leto or Joe Anderson (from Across the Universe)

  50. 50

    Re: Reester – Kellan is WAY too bulked up to be Kurt. WAYYY too bulky.

  51. 51

    HELLO! Charlie Hunnam would play a better Kurt than anyone else mentioned. COME ON PEOPLE!!! Get smart!! CHARLIE HUNNAM!!
    Sons of Anarchy!!!

  52. 52

    Re: cekace – I completely agree! Joe anderson is an amazing actor and he looks more like him then gosling or mcavoy!

  53. 53

    Joe Anderson from Across The Universe looks just like him and plus he can play the guitar.

  54. 54

    Joe Anderson (from Across the Universe) … he can act, he can sign and he is a dead ringer for Kurt. Google the two side-by-side and you will be amazed. It's actually scary how close the two look alike.

  55. 55

    Joe Anderson Hands Down!!!

  56. 56

    Absolutely hands down Jared Leto as Kurt Cobain!

  57. 57

    How about Emile Hirsch from Lords of Dogtown….he is FINE…and looks amazing with blonde hair. *drules*

  58. 58

    Joe Anderson without a doubt!

  59. 59

    how about Ben Foster? He is a great character actor, I think he would do the role justice.

  60. 60

    I think Emile Hirsch would be a good idea. I could see Ryan Gosling too , but Robert Pattison is totally wrong for this. Silly is right!

  61. 61

    Emile Hirsch

  62. 62

    Charlie Hunnam has got the look down(great actor) and Jared Leto definitely looks the part plus he can really sing(he is in a band) and is fine actor(Requiem for a Dream or Fight Club anyone).

  63. 63

    I Agree..!!!

    Joe Anderson from Accros the universe..will be just a perfeeect choiceee.!!!

  64. 64

    I love James Mcavoy he's one of my favorite actors but he already said in an interview that if he was asked he wouldn't do it out of respect. Ryan Gosling has a good voice but i don't think he would be able to pull it off. The for sure actor who should play Kurt is none other than JOE ANDERSON.

  65. 65


  66. 66

    they should dig up Kurt's corpse & cast him as the lead. then get the South Park guys to make the movie like Team America. that would be awesome!

  67. 67

    wow! I just googled Joe Anderson and he looks sooooo much like Kurt. He get's my vote…with Jared Leto in as a close 2nd.

  68. 68

    Re: twihard13 – Yes, because when teenage girls like something collectively it instantly becomes an obsession. It's a powerful market, but that doesn't make it great literature/film.

  69. 69

    He may be too old for it now, but Ewan McGregor would have made a GREAT Kurt, in Velvet Goldmine when he played Iggy, he looked just like Kurt!!

  70. chlyn says – reply to this


    James McAvoy!!!

  71. chlyn says – reply to this


    nowait - Jared Leto!

    LOL @ onehitwonder XD

  72. 72

    James would be a perfect choice

  73. 73


  74. 74

    It HAS to be the guy who played Max in Across the Universe.

  75. 75

    I hate to say it, but..

    Jared Leto

    would be perfect.

  76. 76

    i would kill Patterson if he EVER became Kurt. My god what is he a fucking DOUCHE. Seriously, patterson was still sperm when Kurt ruled.

  77. 77

    Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Courtney jared leto is the best choice!!! don´t you see??? and jared is a rockstar good actor , and dark come onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he has everything for the role!!!!!

  78. 78


  79. 79

    I absolutely love James McAvoy, but to be honest I think Ryan would be the better actor for the part. He does dark and troubled well, and I think if he grew his hair and it was blonde, he would look quite good.

  80. 80

    Oh my god!! Ryan Gosling PLEASE! I love him!

  81. 81

    Ummmm…are you serious??? If Casey James from American Idol is not THE perfect specimen (the looks, the voice) then I don't know who is!!!!

  82. 82

    I think either James McAvoy or Ryan Gosling would both be great at this part but…….I'm voting for Ryan Gosling. I would love to watch him play this part. LOVE HIM

  83. 83

    definitely james mcavoy. they have the same eyes, and that was kurts most telling feature

  84. 84


  85. 85

    I think the last thing that Kurt would want is a Hollywood movie based on his life. It makes me kind of sad.

  86. 86

    no rob, no offence. he's just not there yet.

  87. 87

    JAMES MCAVOY!!!!!!!!

  88. 88

    First of all, no one cares what u think Courtney, with all two of your brain cells rubbing together. And second of all, Rob will be waaaaay too busy to even consider this role, under the Southern sheets with me,,,too bad, so sad.

  89. 89

    Why not Joe Anderson (Across the Universe)? Not only is he a dead ringer for Kurt, he plays guitar and his voice sounds pretty similar to Kurt's too. He'd be perfect for the role. That being said, James McAvoy and Jared Leto are fantastic choices, too.

  90. 90

    JARED LETO!!!!!
    He looked like him when he was blonde…
    And he can get really eerie too…

  91. 91

    I think Alexander Skarsgard AKA Eric from true blood will be the best Kurt Cobain

  92. 92

    Alexander skarsgard!!
    Alexander skarsgard!!
    Alexander skarsgard!!
    The best choice, he acts like a bad ass as Eric in true Blood and he would be a perfect Kurt Cobain

  93. 93

    i reckon jared leto would be EPIC for this role!! love robeet pattinson but not to play legendary kurt cobain! :)

  94. 94

    grrrrrr!!! i thought of jared leto as soon as the media said a biopic of cobain was gonna be done…the rest of you are my followers MWAHAHAHAHAHA…but in all seriousness i hope they at least approach leto

  95. 95

    First off I don't think the movie should get made, Kurt wouldn't want it. Second if it does get made, I don't think that washed up slime-hack Courtney should have anything to do with it. Third, to everyone who thinks that Rob wouldn't make a good Kurt, go watch How to Be! I would have thought the same thing if it wasn't for that movie, but he was really good in it, and with his shaggy hair he kind of looks like Kurt. He also sings and plays the guitar. But lets all just hope we don't have to deal with it, and Courtney crawls back into the swap where she belongs, and we can all forget about the Kurt bio-pic that never should be!!!!

  96. 96

    rob is the best choice.

  97. 97

    YES to James McAvoy, he would do a BRILLIANT job.

  98. 98


  99. 99

    James McAvoy without a doubt!!!

  100. niina says – reply to this


    I think Jared Leto would be perfect!
