Courtney Love In a Holocaust Movie?

She's working on it!

I found that out in Maer Roshan's book Courtney Comes Clean: The High Life and Dark Depths of Music's Most Controversial Icon, a breezily arresting read full of snappy dialogue between himself and the woman he found both "exhilarating and exhausting."

Among the dizzying highlights, Love talks about:


*Saving Kelly Osbourne's life

*Wanting to do drugs for fun while Kurt wanted to do them for oblivion

*The time Oliver Stone told her he should have cast Wall Street with Tom Cruise instead of Charlie Sheen

*And how Lady Gaga could end up a sad, lonely caricature of herself (like so many pop stars!)

What's more, Roshan observes Courtney calling Hollywood mogul Brett Ratner to pitch him a Milos Forman movie called The Ghost of Munich, which she tells Ratner is "about this guy whose mother died in Auschwitz and his father died in front of the KGB.

"It's got a Hitler, a Mussolini, a Stalin, and a Neville Chamberlain, four really huge movie-star parts, and it's got this one chick role, and the chick role has to be me!"

I'd be laughing my guts out except Courtney was amazing in that Larry Flynt movie.

And besides, she also threw in a Kurt & Courtney movie as part of a package deal.

Courtney isn't as horrendous as most people make her out to be. Kurt's dead, he killed himself, and yet to this day people continue to bring it up and blame her for his death, when in reality it was the drug use and the fame that made him eventually perish. Place yourself in her shoes, you marry a famous rock star, do drugs as a bonding mechanism, then he commits suicide, you go into a downward spiral cause of it, people everyday constantly harassing that you killed your husband. I don't blame her for being defensive, outspoken, and a bitch. I don't think any of you could handle what she had to go through. Yes her past drug use ruined her reputation, but let it go. Kurt did drugs, but no one ever says evil things about him for it, yet she gets the whole blunt...no pun intended. Yes, Courtney has made mistakes, but everyone needs to forgive and forget.

She wasn't good in Larry Flint - she played HERSELF ... A loudmouth junkie obsessed with money. She's a shit actress, shit musician, compulsive liar and an abusive mother. Hideous woman.

Tom Cruise has rehabilitated his image - I'm sure she can too. Acting desperate and paranoid (recent Vanity Fair article - big mistake) is not the way to go.

Note to Brett Ratner; too much money to spend on any movie with Courtney in it. It would take it out of the nomination process, due to her unpopularity with the Academy. Courtney has blabbed and stabbed too manyin the back, to not be black-balled, unfortunately for her. She shouldn't keep riding others coattails forever, either. She is NO actor. It's ludicris to pretend that she is!

So the junkie-at-heart is trying to wheel-n-deal herself out of obscurity, now that she wasted Kurts miliions, huh? Most of the viewing audience is sick of her mean treatment of friends/fans on the social networks. Gah! She's like that terrible Chinese knotweed that no one can get RID of! Milos Foreman is another one who can't say "No" loud and strong enough for her to understand! Go away, Courtney. Please?

Courtney Love IS a Holocaust movie.

Lady Gaga will survive and keep morphing into a long and fruitful (no pun intended) career because she is smart, talented and nobody's fool.

And speaking of Eva Braun, did anyone but me see the Hitler bunker movie where Alec Guinness was the worst Hitler ever and whoever played Eva Braun entertained him by singing "Toot, Toot Tootsie, Good-Bye"?

I think Courtney would be good in that type of film. Could you have imagined her vagabond performance in a film like Bent, she total fits that performance archetype.

right, that´s what sandy cane also said. why should love get an award for playing herself? a junkie. plus, she lost grunge fans when she sold out and glammed up (stayed off junk for 5 minutes) for the ceremony. not true to the cause!her and lady gaga are not even in the same class to mention la gaga´s name.

She has no interest in rehabilitating her image.

I used to feel sorry for her. Now I'm just exasperated by her. She had so much going for her and she threw it all away for drugs. I'm pretty sure her brain is perma-fried at this point.

Brett Ratner = p.o.s. who likes to schmooze. also don't believe things that come out of his mouth (like the story he likes to tell about him and his "friend" Michael Jackson throwing water balloons at homeless people. like Mr. Charitable himself MJ would do a thing like that. Brett would probably...)

I can't really picture Courtney Love in a Sophie's Choice knockoff

"Toot, toot, tootsie." That was Musto singing about his bunions.

they--kurt and courtney--were junkies before they were stars! stardom paved the way to pay for the junk. did you really think she had any real talent? all that nail-scraping-blackboard screaming into a micrphone!
