Courtney Love Claims Daughter Turned Down Twilight: 'It Would Have Destroyed Her'

It would seem that things could have been very different indeed for Robert Pattinson, who may have found himself another leading Twilight lady, according to Courtney Love anyway.

Because the rocker has revealed that seven years ago, her daughter Frances Bean was offered the part of Bella Swan in the movie - but luckily (or not) for Kristen Stewart - she turned the part down.

Surely now she is kicking herself at the chance to become an international movie star and have millions of teenage girls worship the ground she walks on? No, absolutely not, said Love.

Frances Bean Cobain, now 20, is the only child of 48-year-old Love and her late Nirvana frontman husband Kurt, who died in 1994 aged just 27 after he committed suicide.

She has never acted and has instead dabbled in singing, modelling and art.

Yesterday, the Hole frontwoman revealed that her daughter was considered for the part while she was appearing as a guest on radio DJ Howard Stern's show, but added that Frances snubbed the role almost immediately.

She said: "When she was 13 she was offered Twilight, she was offered (the part of) Bella in Twilight. Someone just saw a picture of her in a magazine and sent me the script for Twilight.

"She was like, 'That's a sexist Mormon piece of s***'. She was 13. It would have destroyed her life."

The role instead went to Stewart and the rest, as they say, is history! Kristen went on to be world famous having played Bella in the five Twilight movies, and also began a romance with Pattinson after they met on set.

Sadly, that all ended last week after it was reported that the couple had a massive row on his 27th birthday which led to him packing his bags and moving out of the house they shared in Los Angeles, after he allegedly saw texts on Kristen's phone sent from movie director Rupert Sanders who she famously cheated with last year.
