Courtney Love has claimed that "a bunch of #Metoo" incidents resulted in her acting career being put on hold

The Hole frontwoman contemplated a “fun as hell” period in the late ’90s when she turned to acting and earned a Golden Globe nod for The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996). But in the same post, she claimed she “stopped being able to act” because she had “a lot of #metoos” causing her to quit the job.

“Nobody would believe me and it wouldn’t stop. So I went and it went, “Love wrote in the message below, various pictures of the red carpet from that time.

She continued, “And I’m fine with it. Maybe in my next life I’ll be stronger and able to take it. I’ll tip my hat on those who can. It was great fun. “

Elsewhere in the post, Love recalled good times working with Milos Forman, director of The People vs. Larry Flynt. Alongside an archive clip from Forman praising Love’s acting, Love wrote, “I was a professional actress and movie star for several years because of Milos Forman.

“I love it here in England. But I sure miss acting sometimes. To the tune of a great director. One of the greatest experiences a woman can have, I think. All the glamor that comes after that is fun, extravagant, beautiful!

“But the trust you can get with a great director? It’s one of the most profound things I’ve ever known. “

Love has since appeared in productions including television roles in Sons Of Anarchy, Empire, and Revenge. She also starred in the 2017 television movie Menendez: Blood Brothers and recently finished production on James Franco’s upcoming film The Long Home.

The musician and actress’ allegations come a month after actress Kathy Bates turned to the #MeToo movement saying “times were different” when she began her career in the 1970s. “In my day, when you went into a man’s hotel room, you knew exactly why you were leaving,” she said in an interview with The Guardian.
