Courtney Love has claimed that she gets "hit on" by actors who want to play Kurt Cobain in the film version of the Nirvana frontman's life, NME reports. Love made the claim in a new interview with Fashion magazine. A big screen adaptation of Cobain's life has been in development for many years with numerous actors linked to the lead role. Despite not naming names, Love says that she has information that "would blow your mind." "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 the interview. "I could give you some [actors'] names that would blow your mind, but I am so not sleeping with someone under 38." Elsewhere in the interview, Love claims that she deserves to be able to make a fresh start. "Listen, if ["Orange Is the New Black Star] Natasha Lyonne can burn down a house and Robert [Downey Jr.] can go to prison for two years, I deserve a second chance," she says. Love has said that she will release her "amazing" new album this Christmas. According to reports, the former Hole frontwoman's LP has a working title of "Died Blonde" and will be put out towards the end of 2013. In May of this year, Love revealed that she had advertised for a bassist on internet listings site Craigslist and had received only one response. "I put an ad on Craigslist that said, 'Band in the style of Hole looking for bassist in the style of Melissa Auf der Maur'," she said. "I got exactly one response. There's just not a lot of chick bass players."

    Who cares.
    You clicked on this article, signed into your account, and posted a comment... so I would say that you clearly care a lot.
    Best actor look-a-like: Joe Anderson.
    Absolutely! Watch The 27 Club. He reminds me so much of Kurt in that movie.
    It doesnt matter if someone is given a second chance when they remain the same.
    She really reminds me of Gillian from Boardwalk Empire these days. Drugged up, deluded, full of shit, court battles for a kid that doesn't really like her and takes more after her father...
    If she wants a second chance, maybe she should stop being such a **** all the time. Almost everybody in the world hates her, I would beg to say EVERYONE in the music world hates her, and she does nothing to actually try and change her image.
    If anyone knows how to keep their name in the news, it's Courtney Love.
    Why is Courtney always being such a b***h
    Well, she really wasn't being a bitch in this interview. She only told the interviewer something that happens to her.
    "...I am so not sleeping with someone under 38." - I guess that's very classy and lady-like, right?
