Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole leader/general crazy woman, Courtney Love, was apparently offered the lead role in the Twilight films, which she turned down. Tim Burton was also after her for the role of Alice in his recent Alice in Wonderland 3D movie. Not bad for a 17 year old who's never acted before.

You should, however, take those claims with a pinch of salt as they come straight from her not always reliable mother. In an interview with Daily Mail's You Magazine, Love declared: "Frances is so beautiful, but she doesn't want to be famous. She was offered the part of Bella in the Twilight movies, and Tim Burton wanted her for Alice in Wonderland. But she wants to go to college: she's very good at graphic novels. [..] Frances will be fine, it'll be fine."

Seems like Frances made the right choice by not taking the Twilight role if she doesn't want to be famous. Love also spent the majority of the interview talking quite enviously about Frances' trust fund (which "exceeds that left by Elvis Presley" apparently), set up after her father's suicide in 1994.

Love, who is estranged from her daughter and is long-rumoured to have spent her share of Cobain's legacy, marvelled at a "17-year-old getting $40,000 a month" (as we all would, obviously) and, weirdly, remarked about Bean's trust fund "It's enough money to kill her". When is someone going to make a biopic of this lady?
