Hole star reveals desperation to land role

09:38 5th November 2013

Courtney Love claims young actors are attempting to seduce her in order to land the role of Kurt Cobain in the planned biopic.

A film depicting the life of the Nirvana frontman has been in the works for a number of years, with Love pushing for its development. Recently she hired Brett Morgan, who worked on the Rolling Stones' 'Crossfire Hurricane' documentary, to take control of the project, but it appears that this has led to some unwanted attention for Love.

She claims that ever since she undertook the project she has been the target of numerous unwanted advances from actor types, although unfortunately she hasn't named any names.

"I still get hit on by guys because they want to be cast in that Kurt Cobain biopic that's been in production for years," she says in an interview with Fashion magazine, "I could give you some [actors'] names that would blow your mind, but I am so not sleeping with someone under 38."

Meanwhile various rare Nirvana interviews have emerged following this years 20th anniversary of In Utero, including a recently released piece with Jon Savage where Cobain discusses sexuality, marriage and children.
