In May 2013 Courtney Love, the widow of Nirvana’s notorious late front-man Kurt Cobain, revealed something that will surprise people. Someone from the casting crew had seen a recent (2007) picture of Francis Bean Cobain in a magazine. Apparently the daughter of Love and Cobain had the looks to portray the character that would later become famous worldwide, because Francis’ mother received the script for the movie. According to the interview Love gave for Howard Stern, she and Francis turned down the role of Bella, because Francis was only 13 years old.


Love mentioned another main reason apart from Francis’ age – according to her, Francis was protective of her privacy and the role would have put her far too much in the spotlight for her own comfort.
