It’s always nice when Courtney Love takes a break from being crazy to say something we can all agree with: The idea of Robert Pattinson playing Kurt Cobain is ridiculous. Rumors recently went around that the Twilight star was her personal pick for the upcoming biopic, but she clears that right up for the Canadian Press: “Isn't that so stupid, who would cast him? That's just wrong, no offense.”

"I watched the Twilight stuff very, very recently and I get it, it resonates with the teenaged girl in me,” she continues…but that doesn’t change the fact that casting the prettyboy as her late husband would be just plain “silly.” Who could play the part? James McAvoy or Ryan Gosling, she suggests.
