Frances Bean Cobain, The Original Bella In Twilight Film?

| Filed under: Film FlickersCourtney LoveFrances Bean CobainTwilight


According to her mother!

Courtney Love revealed that her daughter Frances Bean Cobain was offered the part of Bella in the Twilight movies!

She says:

"Frances is so beautiful, but she doesn't want to be famous. She was offered the part of Bella in the Twilight movies, and Tim Burton wanted her for Alice in Wonderland. But she wants to go to college: she's very good at graphic novels. Frances will be fine, it'll be fine."

And apparently the two are in contact via e-mail. Courtney explains:

"We don't speak on the phone, but we went to court so that we could start this thing called Family Wizard where our e-mails are monitored, so there's no restraining order any more."

We hope they're able to mend their relationship eventually, but in the meantime it sounds like Frances is on the right track!

    She would have been better than sour puss, one note, KStew that's for sure. this girl seems to have a good head on her shoulders. Good for her

  2. 2

    Really? I believe this like I believe Perez even visits his own site.

  3. 3

    yeah…..and rob sleeps in my bed everynight……….

    I think Courtney is delusional as usual

  5. 5

    Bella and Alice? I think she's delusional.

  6. 6

    That's bullshit that she was offered to play Bella. I don't believe it, Courtney is nuts everyone knows that.

    She must be a very strong young woman to have lived through the mess her fucked up parents created.

    With a whack job for a mother and a druggie for a father, I admire this girl for trying to lead a normal life.

    Sure she was offered the part, so was Perez!

    If she really was offered and turned the role down, it could be the smartest thing she could ever do. I mean, to go from Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love's rock-n-roll daughter to someone like Bella Swan in such a crappy movie as Twilight, that would be so embarassing for her.

    Anyone would make a better Bella than Kristen Stewart. It might have made the movies less than an ounce better, but still, it stinks either way, the only thing to make those movies better is to just have a black screen, nothing else.

    I don't believe that she was offered either part. And even if she was, she wouldn't have made a good bella what so ever. And I love the actress they got to play the role for alice. Courtney is fucking nuts and needs to get a life.

    Courtney is pathetic and reminds me of Drew Barrymore's mother, how she tells the press about their wonderful relationship, yet her daughter wants nothing to do with her.
    If she turns out great, it's not because of Courtney.

  13. 13

    She was never offered the part or considered for it. What big fat lie. Courtney (as usual) is full of shit.

  14. 14

    I love that Frances isn't jumping on the "Oh my parents were celebrities so that means I get attention too!" bandwagon. Other than catching her at a show now and then, you don't see many pics of her out and about, she isn't seeking out reasons to be interviewed or running down red carpets…she's quiet, and respectful, and awesome. She could have turned out absolutely nuts, and people would have understood. I think her father would be very proud of her.

    This is what happens when the nannies raise the kids properly.

    Wow. C.Love seems to love to talk about how she or her daughter were turned down for leading roles in movies. Did someone forget to take their Klonopin today? Again?

  19. 19

    I'd be soooo heartbroken if my daughter and I ended up like this in a few years. It pangs at my heart just to think about it.

  20. 20

    Ummmm… this lady must be fucking living in her own world. Bella? Alice? Seriously?

    With France's resources, she can take the academic road and never worry about her next meal. Nice for her. Courtney tries in her own inimicable way, and should get props for that. It's obvious here just how much she loves Frances.

  22. 22

    She was probably asked to audition and Courtney was too insulsted that she wasn't famous enough to get parts handed to her daughter.

  23. 23

    you've got to be kidding…

  24. 24

    put down the pills courtney.

  25. 25

    she looks like chuckie… no offense

  26. 26

    The smartest move for francis would be to stay away from her mother …..
    We all remember what happend last time someone got close to her

  27. 27

    I thought MY mother was awful—at least she isn't Courtney "make it go away" Love!

  28. 28

    Sorry, but WTF-ever!! Courtney HAD to be high when she said this!!!
