Courtney Love Shoots Down Robert Pattinson Casting Rumor as "Stupid"

He hasn't given an interview or done much press in awhile, but Robert Pattinson is at the center of two new rumors.

The first is clearly ridiculous: sorry, Gossip Girl fans, but the Twilight Saga star did NOT hook up with Leighton Meester.

As for talk that Pattinson was Courtney Love's first choice to play Kurt Cobain in a movie about the late rocker, the former Hole singer has halted this casting possibility in its track.

"Isn't that so stupid, who would cast him? That's just wrong, no offense [to Pattinson]," Love told The Canadian Press. "I watched the Twilight stuff very, very recently and I get it, it resonates with the teenage girl in me, I understand epic love of that nature; I write about it all the time. But isn't that silly?"

Love added that she'll never watch any biopic about Cobain because it would be too painful, but she did list a couple actors she could see in the role: James McAvoy and  Ryan Gosling.

Are these good choice? Who do you think shold portray the Nirvana frontman?
