Courtney Love: Frances Bean Cobain Originally Offered Bella Role in Twilight


By Michael Lewittes



Courtney Love claims her daughter Frances Bean Cobain was originally offered the role of Bella Swan in Twilight.


The Hole singer said on Thursday’s “The Howard Stern Show, “When she was 13 she was offered Twilight. She was offered Bella in Twilight.”

Love told the host, “That’s a true story,” saying her daughter didn’t even audition for the part, but “someone just saw a picture of her in a magazine and sent me the script.”

However, the singer says Cobain immediately rejected the purported offer, allegedly telling her mom, “That’s a sexist Mormon piece of sh*t.”

“It would have destroyed her life,” said Love.

Gossip Cop has reached out to reps for Twilight regarding Love’s claims, which she first made in 2010.
