Universal has confirmed with EW that a report in The Sun – that had Robert Pattinson in talks with Courtney Love to play the Kurt Cobain in a biopic released by the studio – is false. What’s more, Love’s manager also told Spin: “That’s an amazing story, and the first I’ve heard of any of this…I’m not sure [Courtney] knows who R Patz is, but he sure is cute.”  Sorry, Twilight fans – even though Patticakes is a bit of a musician (plays guitar and piano), looks like this one’s a big Nevermind.

Anyone dying to see a 40-foot-tall version of this photo?
