Ex-Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was "fucking well hung", Courtney Love has revealed in a new interview.

Speaking in the new issue of GQ, Love responded to a question about whether actor Brad Pitt could portray her former husband in a biopic by saying: "Kurt had more presence and more beauty than Brad Pitt. He was a leader, he was strong, in fact he was well fucking hung, if you really want to know."

The Hole singer also confirmed a long-standing rumour that Cobain had been cast in Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 classic Pulp Fiction, adding: "You ever wonder why he thanked Quentin [Tarantino] on the back of 'In Utero'? Quentin asked him to play Eric Stoltz's part in Pulp Fiction."



It is also revealed in a new interview with Nirvana’s former lawyer Alan Mintz that Cobain was not shy about wanting his band to be one of the biggest in the world. Mintz revealed that Cobain said to him when he was negotiating to leave indie label Sub Pop, "Get me off this label—I want to sell millions of records."

Dave Grohl, who is also interviewed, backed up this assertion, revealing that the first thing Cobain said when he was negotiating with a major record label in New York, was: "We want to be the biggest band in the world."
