Courtney Love Says Robert Pattinson is Too “Silly” to Play Cobain

By: Celebuzz / April 14, 2010

Everybody can take a deep breath now;  the rumors that New Moon heartthrob Robert Pattinson will be playing grunge icon Kurt Cobain in an upcoming movie are false.

Courtney Love has thoroughly shot down reports that she was eyeing R-Pattz to portray her deceased husband on the big screen, pooh-poohing,

“Isn’t that so stupid, who would cast him? No offense…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?”

Perhaps not as silly as wearing a turtle on your head, Courtney, but yeah—point taken. 

Are you relieved or disappointed that R-Pattz won’t be flying the flannel? Let us know in the comments section!
