Courtney Love Says Frances Bean Was Offered ‘Twilight’ Lead

Courtney Love and her daughter Frances Bean CobainCourtney Love recently confirmed in an interview with Howard Stern that her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, was offered the role of Bella Swan in Twilight (a role that eventually went to Kristen Stewart, catapulting her to mega-famedom) and ended up turning it down. Between that and her recent Twitter tirade over reality star Kendall Jenner's inconsiderate pity-party tweets, Frances Bean is one of the coolest celebrity offspring around these days.

Moreover - if you believe in the accuracy of Love's paraphrasing skills - the 48 year-old musician stated that Frances Bean had a rather eloquent way of turning the part down. "Someone just saw a picture of [Frances Bean] in a magazine and sent me the script,” Love said, going on to recall that her daughter rejected the script, telling her, “That’s a sexist, Mormon, piece of s***.”

While Love has dabbled in film, Frances Bean has yet to make her big screen debut. When If (given her apparent disdain for Hollywood, the notion of her acting seems unlikely) she does decide to act, I'd be the first to throw my money at her project.
