Love previously told 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?”
Rob insists he’s not even playing the role, calling the rumor “ridiculous.” He told The Mirror, “I love Nirvana, but I love them a bit too much – I’d be embarrassed [to play Kurt Cobain]. 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.”
He then responded to Courtney’s rude comments, saying, “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!”
Hysterical! Rob is usually so soft spoken! But we suppose when Courtney Love is attacking you over a role you have no intention of playing, you have to react!
So take a chill pill, Courtney! Rob isn’t playing Kurt Cobain….although we still think he’d be a pretty good choice!
