Twilight‘s [lastfm]Robert Pattinson [/lastfm]has fired back at [lastfm]Courtney Love [/lastfm]for her comments that he would be the wrong choice for the leading role of a [lastfm]Kurt Cobain [/lastfm]biopic.
In an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Mirror, Pattison claims he has never been in consideration for the role and Love’s comments were out of line.
“Sometimes these things just appear. I love Nirvana, but I love them a bit too much – I’d be embarrassed,” Pattison said.
He added, “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 d**k!’ 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. It’s ridiculous.”
According to reports earlier this year, Love blasted the idea of Pattinson playing Cobain, saying, “Isn’t that so stupid, who would cast him? That’s just wrong, no offence.”
