Robert Pattinson Calls Courtney Love a "Dick" Over Kurt Cobain Biopic Gossip
Yes, we mean that Robert Pattinson, a.k.a. R. Pattz, a.k.a. Edward Cullen. We're not exactly sure what would happen if Twi-hards and Nirvana grungers were to battle it out, but now thanks to Pattinson, we know that vampires pack a mean bite.
It all started when rumors surfaced this past April that the British actor was a front-runner to play Courtney Love's late husband, Kurt Cobain, in a forthcoming biopic about the Nirvana frontman. Love -- who's also the co-executive producer of the film -- responded by saying that casting Pattinson for the role would be "stupid."
Now R. Patz is lashing back at her by, in a way, agreeing, saying he would've been "ridiculous" as Cobain.
"Sometimes these things just appear. I love Nirvana, but I love them a bit too much -- I'd be embarrassed... 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!"
Pattinson isn't the first to call Love out on her shit, but he's definitely one of the most loved men in Hollywood right now -- and we hear those teen girls are extremely loyal toward Team Edward. Will Courtney Love see her house covered in toilet paper in her near future?
Love admitted the current short list now includes James McAvoy and Ryan Gosling, and Scarlett Johansson has been rumored to be under consideration to play Love. Even without R. Pattz, that still sounds like one sexy music film to us.
