Brad Pitt’s Fight Club is regarded as one of the amazing films. But during its production, there was a conflict between Courtney Love (the singer of the band Hole) and Brad Pitt.
Love pointed out that the Hollywood star collaborated with Gus Van Sant to acquire the rights for a Kurt Cobain biopic. She wrote (via The Hollywood Reporter):
“On the podcast, I recount the day Brad & Gus Van Sant called me from lunch and tried to blackmail me over my role, for the rights to a film about Kurt. I lost my shit on them, and by 7pm, I was fired from Fight Club. Every word of this is factual. This was always a secret that I was fine keeping. It’s a movie. Indeed, I passed on better roles than that. Who cares? The point is Brad kept on stalking me about Kurt.”
The musician then also referenced Angelina Jolie’s physical abuse allegations against the Fight Club star.

Courtney Love said that she told the story because she felt Pitt would not stop pursuing her for the rights of Kurt Cobain biopic – unless the singer said it in public.
Love emphasized that she didn’t want him to be pissed off at her. The singer even wished him well, truly. The San Francisco native asserted that she enjoyed him as a movie star immensely but “not so much as a biopic producer.”
She also claimed that Pitt approached her again in 2020 for a potential project, but their feud escalated when she declined once again. Love highlighted Pitt’s alleged problematic behavior, underlining the consistent abuse allegations made by Jolie. Despite all the social media attention, Pitt did not respond to the Celebrity Skin singer’s statements.
