Courtney Love claimed that Brad Pitt got her removed from playing the female lead role of Marla Singer in "Fight Club," which was released in 1999. She revealed that the firing took place after she turned down Pitt's pitch of playing her late husband, Kurt Cobain, on-screen.

"I wouldn't let Brad play Kurt," Love said during an interview with "WTF with Marc Maron" podcast earlier this week. "I went nuclear. I don't do Faust. Who the f--k do you think are?"

The 58-year-old singer recalled her conversation with Pitt, where she told the 59-year-old actor that she doesn't trust him.

"I don't know if I trust you, and I don't know that your movies are for profit," she recalled telling Pitt. "They're really good social justice movies, but ... if you don't get me, you kind of don't get Kurt, and I don't feel like you do, Brad."

According to Love, she was supposed to play Singer's character in the movie, which eventually went to actress Helena Bonham Carter.

As far as Love's late husband Cobain is concerned, he took his own life at the age of 27 in 1994. The musician was said to be battling with drugs and depression.

At that time, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic told a local newspaper that blaming his drug addiction for suicide is "stupid."

"Just blaming it on smack is stupid," Novoselic said, People reported. "Smack was just a small part of his life," adding that he was suffering from clinical depression since high school. "Kurt could just be very outgoing and funny and charming and a half hour later, he would just go sit in the corner and be totally moody and uncommunicative."

Love was married to Cobain from 1992 to 1994. They share a daughter named Frances Bean Cobain. Before Cobain, Love was married to guitarist and singer James Moreland for a year in 1989.

On the work front, Love will be next seen in the movies like "The Long Home" and "The Possibility of Fireflies." Pitt, on the other hand, was recently featured in the star-studded movie, "Babylon," which was released on Dec. 23.
