Courtney said that casting Rob to play her deceased rocker hubby was a “stupid” decision – and he’s furious at her rude remarks!
Courtney Love was so enraged by the reports that Robert Pattinson was being considered to play her deceased hubby Kurt Cobain that she called the situation “stupid” and “just wrong.” But now R-Patz is fighting back and calling Courtney on her own BS!
“I love Nirvana, but I love them a bit too much – I’d be embarrassed [to play Kurt Cobain],” the 24-year-old British hunk told UK’s The Mirror of playing the Nirvana frontman, who committed suicide in 1994. He admitted, “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.”
But although Rob admits he was wrong for the role, he’s pissed off that Courtney dissed him so hard in the press. “You see all these comments, like from Courtney Love, saying, ‘What the f*ck! He’s totally wrong for it’, and I’m like, ‘I f*cking said no, you d*ck!”
The 46-year-old former Hole singer was pretty brutal in her criticism of the Twilight star, telling The Canadian Press, “Isn’t that so stupid, who would cast [Rob]? That’s just wrong. But isn’t [the thought of him playing Kurt] silly?”
Good for you, Rob! Way to call Courtney on her rudeness! And for the record – we think you’d make an awesome Kurt Cobain…you’ve got the sexy, brooding, musician thing down pat!
