Courtney Love is often propositioned by young actors eager to land the lead role in a planned biopic about her late husband Kurt Cobain.

The former Hole singer has been working on the idea of turning the tragic Nirvana frontman’s life story into a film for several years, and she recently hired Brett Morgan, the director of the Rolling Stones’ Crossfire Hurricane documentary, to take charge of the project.

However, Love, 49, claims the news has turned her into a target for actors determined to bed her in the hope that she will cast them as Cobain – although she has stopped short of naming names.

She tells Fashion magazine, “I still get hit on by guys because they want to be cast in that Kurt Cobain biopic that’s been in production for years. I could give you some (actors’) names that would blow your mind, but I am so not sleeping with someone under 38.”

Cobain died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1994 at the age of 27.
