Courtney Love On Having Regrets About Exposing Brad Pitt’s Kurt Cobain Obsession

Not long ago, Courtney Love revealed that we could’ve seen her as ‘Fight Club’s Marla if she hadn’t refused Brad Pitt’s offer to make a music film about Kurt Cobain. Besides, she also claimed Brad stalked her for Kurt. However, it appears like Courtney probably regretted exposing the actor’s obsession with the Nirvana frontman.

“Re: Media/ Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast since I won’t be speaking on a podcast for another few years!” Love wrote in the caption of her recent Instagram post, implying that her interview with Marc Maron might be the last one for a long time. “Have fun. We did!”

“Hi. Regarding a story I told on Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast, a story I was never going to tell,” wrote Courtney at the beginning of her lengthy explanation. “Brad pushed me a bridge too far. I don’t like the way he does business or wields his power. It’s a simple fact, and it started during the production of ‘Fight Club.’ I understand how much of a game of roulette casting is. I am not here 22 years later b*tching about losing a part playing someone’s side piece in a movie.”

“On the podcast,” she recalled, “I recount the day Brad & Gus Van Sant called me from lunch and tried to blackmail me over my role for the rights to a film about Kurt. I lost my shit on them, and by 7 pm, I was fired from ‘Fight Club.’ Every word of this is factual. This was always a secret that I was fine keeping. It’s a movie. Indeed, I passed on better roles than that. Who cares? The point is Brad kept on stalking me about Kurt.”

Love continued, “With all this resentment in our history, one might ask why I took yet another pitch for Kurt’s film from Brad after all these years. It’s because I’m in recovery. And resentment is like drinking poison and hoping the other person dies. I was over being mad about it. Plus, I heard Pitt was dealing with the same demons. So, we might both have changed our spiritual worldviews. Not to be.”

“It’s not just the Zoom I had with Brad in 2020 where I said no to Plan B Films & Brad producing it,” Love stated. “It’s that I said NO on Zoom, and that was not enough, and I was not heard. I was ignored. I had no plans to bring it up with Marc Maron, but up it came. I told the story because I felt Pitt would not stop pursuing Kurt — unless I said it in public.”

“I don’t want Brad to be pissed off at me and become his resentment,” the Hole singer admitted before sharing her nice wishes for the actor. “I want him to do better. I’m not into assault. Come on, brother Pitt. I wish you well, truly. If he’s mad at me, that’s his problem. I enjoy him as a movie star immensely. Not so much as a biopic producer. I hope this clarifies, and thanks for your time. I’m sure Helena Bonham Carter was meant to be Marla Singer, and I do not bear her, Edward Norton, David Fincher, or Art Linson — all people whose work & genius I respect immensely — any ill will.”

Courtney Love had previously claimed that Brad Pitt stalked her to make a movie about Kurt Cobain, and her refusal cost her the chance to be ‘Fight Club’s Marla. She also said she wants to film a movie about her late husband in the future, but the person who will portray Cobain will probably not be Pitt. However, according to her latest remarks, Love regretted bringing this up and putting Brad Pitt on the spot as she doesn’t want to be the Hollywood star’s resentment.
