Courtney Love gears up for ''Julie Johnson''

Courtney Love gears up for ”Julie Johnson”–The musician-turned-actress looks forward to shooting the low-budget film

Posted on

Candid Courtney Love recently told Jane magazine that she likes ”really trashy porno girls.” She can put that girl attraction to use in her next film, Julie Johnson, costarring Lili Taylor (The Haunting). ”She’s so sexy — I’m so into her,” Love says of Taylor, who’ll play a cop’s wife who falls for Love’s character at a computer class. The New Jersey shoot begins this month, and the budget is low — really low. ”I think I have to stay in a Howard Johnson,” says Love, who admits the producers questioned her ability to slum it. ”They were like, ‘You can’t do it, you’re a diva!’ I’m like, ‘Yes I can, I was a punk!”’ Was being the operative word.
