Robert Pattinson feuding with Courtney Love, he calls her a “d-ck”


Over the weekend, The Daily Mirror had an interview with Robert Pattinson, probably to promote whatever, I don’t know. Sparkles, blah, etc. Most of the interview is taken up with Edward Cullen bullsh-t (full piece here), but then Pattinson gets a question about the long-awaited (and long-dreaded) Kurt Cobain biopic. Back in April, there were reports that Courtney Love was trying to get the biopic made with Pattinson as Kurt and Scarlett Johansson as Love. However, Courtney dismissed those stories by bashing Pattinson, basically claiming that he really wouldn’t be right. So Pattinson wanted to set the record straight when he got the question. And in the process, he totally called out Courtney:

Mirror: Is it true you’re going to play Kurt Cobain in the Nirvana movie?
Pattinson: 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 f*ck! He’s totally wrong for it’, and I’m like, ’I f*cking said no, you d*ck!’ 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.

[From The Daily Mirror]

I didn’t think Pattinson had it in him! Sparkles is growing more and more ballsy, and if he’s calling out Courtney, you know he really doesn’t care about the part. If I was an actor, I wouldn’t either. Yes, it would be a juicy role, but Courtney has held onto the life rights forever, and you know you would have to deal with her and her crackhead drama for months while you were trying to make the film. But ScarJo hasn’t said anything – which makes me think she’s probably still trying to play Courtney. We’ll see. I kind of hope the film never gets made, honestly.


By the way, how much do love Sparkles’ bitchface?

    love his bitchface…but it does look like someone caught him while he was mugging for the camera.

    oh, he’s just too cute.

    (and now I feel dirty bc I’m old…)

  2. Oi says:

    nirvana is one of the top 5 most overrated bands in music history. They have what? 5 good songs? yeah, yeah, I know they changed music forever, blah blah blah. They were the Doors of the 90′s. no one today would really care if not for Cobain’s death. Alice in Chains is the best grunge band ever. /rant

    Cobain’s best work was being the brains behind Hole. I wish anyone else was in charge of his estate.

  3. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Ugliest. Suit. Ever.

  4. Iggles says:

    Wow, great comeback! I hate the whole twilight crap, but that comment made me like him a little.

    That said, Courtney is crazy, but her getting bashed from all sides is tiring. However, she brings a lot of it on herself so it is what it is..

  5. R TWATZ is a cock, dont ever call out courtney love when your clame to fame is a shitty vampire flick for 10yo girls….

  6. Bella Mosley says:

    Courtney Love is an embarrassment to herself and too fried to know it.

  7. gabs says:

    Lol. i remember thinking it was rude when Courtney love said that stuff about him.. She could have just said, no its not true hes not playing kurt instead of bashing him.

    Scarjo would be a horrible courtny. Shes SO dull and bland. Cant see it

  8. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I cannot think of a movie I would be less interested in than a movie about Nirvana.

  9. coucou says:

    Oi:2 – i like Alice in Chains, too, but don’t really consider them grunge, and couldn’t at all compare them with Nirvana.

    Nirvana had more than 5 great songs, dude, maybe the five you are referring to were the ones that were hits and had more air play, but they had a ton more good songs, starting back with their first album “Bleach.”

    I like Nirvana better than Alice in Chains, but i’m not gonna try to come off like some pompous pr!ck and call AIC overrated.

    It’s clearly a matter of taste, so don’t quit your day job, you’d never make it as a music critic.

  10. Renee says:

    Luv it Rob! Way to grow a pair! Not a big fan of Twilight but fab bitch face! Oh Courtney! You won the lotto when you snagged Cobain. Otherwise you’d be in a trailer park somewhere shooting up.

  11. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “Nirvana had more than 5 great songs, dude, maybe the five you are referring to were the ones that were hits and had more air play,”

    I had to laugh when I read this because there’s a radio station in Phila that used to have a promo bit they’d play between songs…

    …”it might surprise some people to learn that Nirvana recorded more than 5 songs”…

    …meaning that THEY play more than just the 5 that got all the radio play.

    anyway…just gave me a chuckle.

  12. Oi says:

    @coucou: Totally typical. And I am not a dude. I am a dudette.

    And AIC (especially early versions, before Layne’s death) are considered grunge. You could argue that the music style they play is heavy metal. Grunge was more of a scene that later became known as a music genre. While they themselves did not call themselves grunge, that’s where pop culture and retrospect generally does.

    @Sarah: Thanks for the love. I usually don’t get any for that opinion.

  13. denise says:

    R.Patz just made me hot. MUY MACHO!!

  14. SolitaryAngel says:

    Wow–way to go, Rob! I think I like him now…

    @Oi: I love you too! Love AIC, and though Nirvana had some good stuff, I don’t understand the whole “they changed the face of music forever” thing either… *ducks*

  15. Strawberry says:

    Ok, I’m officially confused. Didn’t Gus Van Sant already make a movie about Kurt Cobain? Yes, ok so no need for a shitty biopic.

  16. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named says:

    Hole was great back in the day, now she just needs to go away.

    looks like some weird ghost orb near his chin in that bottom pic…

  17. jen says:

    I vote for Tara Reid as Courtney.

  18. Oi says:

    (I am spending a lot of time on this, but its a really slow day for me, sorry!)

    @solitary Angel: That’s really what I meant. Nirvana was not a bad band at all. Everyone should listen to Nevermind. But I don’t think their MUSIC overall is all ‘they’ say it is. i mean, for God’s sake, John Miller (NRO) seriously compared Cobain’s lyrics to TS Elliot! Steve Allen said it right saying the best career move was KC’s suicide (harsh, but prove him/me wrong).

    @Strawberry: That doc pretty much said all there was to say. Movie makers are doing the same thing with the Doors (hence my comparison); they talk endlessly about the characters of the band, but can’t say 1/10 of that about the music.

  19. Eileen Yover says:

    Oi: totally agree and 5 stars for bringing up AIC! I went through my whole adolescence listening to Dirt and Jar of Flies along with Anthrax & Soundgarden. Nirvana doesn’t hold a candle to AIC!

    Oh and kudos to Sparkles for growing a pair!

  20. buckley says:

    I don’t get it, so he turned it down yet wasn’t offered it??

  21. Iris says:

    my obsession with him is borderline unhealthy. why is he so gorgeous? (not in these pictures though.)

  22. Katija says:

    If they go ahead with this picture, Taylor Momsen would make a great young Courtney Love. I mean, yes, Momsen is utterly atrocious, but she’d be perfect for it.

  23. TG says:

    Why would anyone, celebrity or not, ever respond to anything Courtney Love or that Hohan woman ever say about them. It would be an embarrassment to even be associated with either of those two losers. If the celebs would just ignore those two they would go away eventually and then we wouldn’t have to see their ugly cracked out faces anymore.

  24. gg says:

    Ita with Renee and Oi. Overrated band. Tortured artist effect.

  25. Vanessa says:

    He wasn’t even offered the fucking role. Then she was like freaking out all over Twitter saying: “WTF he is like so wrong!” without even knowing the facts!
    Rob has the right to call this brain dead fug that she’s a dick!

    That’s what Hollywood does. Any popular guy the spread rumors to stir shit…yeah mission accomplished.

  26. Missfit says:

    Wow, that’s pretty funny. She thinks she’s “THE SHIT” and she’s nobody now, she wants attention so bad, even if she’s talking out her ass. She wants to talk about all the men she “f*cked” (Gavin) for one, as if that’s a good thing to be a sleezy whore and she’s so “proud” of it. She tried to clean up her act that one time and she was looking really pretty actually and she was trying to look like Madonna, but that shit didn’t last and she’s like whatever all over again. Good for Rob for sticking up for himself, I would have done the same thing and she’s just a cunt for all her ignorance. And that one little sleezy girl from Gossip Girl, (I don’t know her name) who dresses like prostitute at 16, she should play courtney. Who knew not showering and not brushing your hair was so cool in the early grunge 90s world and being high in drugs, hmm.

  27. JJ says:

    You know what?

    A few months ago it was reported that Courtney was chasing RPatz and trying to set him up with Frances Bean, that she thought he’d pe Puuuurrrrrfect for her daughter, I’d bet good money that he wasn’t having any of that and that’s when crazy Courtney’s love got sour.

  28. Cirque28 says:

    I hardly think Courtney Love would be in a trailer park if she hadn’t married Kurt Cobain. She’s originally a trust fund kid from an upper class family.

    But of course that doesn’t change the fact that she is batsh*t crazy.

  29. chris says:

    She’s a moron. Sky is blue.

  30. jane16 says:

    Love it! Way to go Rob! btw, there’s a lot of Nirvana fans that think CL conspired to murder Cobain. There are a couple of websites about it.

  31. aury says:

    even though i don’t get his appeal at all, he just went up a couple notches in my book. lol

  32. Lindsay says:

    It is funnier she sees herself as Scarlett Johansson. But I am really confused by the strange last sentences: 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!’

    “I didn’t get offered it” sounds like he tried out. And didn’t get the part.

    And why would being too tall be so much of an issue? They can make people look tiny or like giants long before CGI, so being off by a few inches seems like no big deal and if it was could be fixed using perspective tricks, not the end of the world.

    “I’m nothing like him” that is why it is acting.

  33. becca says:

    He lost me after he had the gall to defend KStew’s whining about the media out to get her when she poorly defended herself from the rape comment RIGHT AFTER she apologized for it.


  34. Dingles says:

    I love this man. She looks like a burn victim.

  35. moocowhead says:

    Kurt would be rolling in his grave, i’m sure it would turn out a pretty unintentionally hilarious movie and for that reason I won’t see it! The first one was bad enough ugh

    Btw – I love AIC and Nirvana; If you don’t like Nirvana that’s all good but there is a reason that people like myself love them so much – and I can’t fucking stand Smells Like Teen Spirit, nor am I just a sucker for a catchy tune.

  36. liz says:

    why would scarlet jo. play the role of courtney love ?? she doesn’t look anything like her…

    obviously that’s a good thing.

  37. I think there’s more to this story – at least as far as Courtney’s abrupt dismissal is concerned. If I remember correctly, Francis Bean (like many girls) once had a crush on RPattz. Well, Courtney started talking about it publicly & attempted to strongarm him into her matchmaking web. Obviously, nothing ever came of it… probably not so much because of what he thought of Francis but because of Courtney being so damn nutty. Now, she’s got an axe to grind.

  38. sabine says:

    If Courtney was an ordinary person, she’d be in the nuthouse long ago….she makes a career move out of being nuts

  39. Karen says:

    The Daily Mirror has published a fake interview with Robert Pattinson in the past…I don’t think this is true either.

  40. fashionfreak says:

    22 — i think he meant he refused to do it when he heard the rumors, even before anyone offered him anything

  41. bunny fluff and stuff says:

    he loves nirvana? now i think i love him. if he is a real nirvana fan, he must have seen all the evidence pointing toward the fact that kurt COULD not have killed himself and it was a homicide. the woman with the motive? that maniac courtney love.
