    But Courtney says Frances turned the revered lead role down, as she doesn’t want to be famous, and would rather attend college to study.

    And that’s not all. The Hole singer has also told how Frances – her daughter with late rocker Kurt Cobain – was earmarked by Tim Burton for a part in Alice in Wonderland, but declined his offer, too.

    ‘Frances is so beautiful, but she doesn’t want to be famous,’ Courtney told You magazine.

    ‘She was offered the part of Bella in the Twilight movies, and Tim Burton wanted her for Alice in Wonderland.

    ‘But she wants to go to college: she’s very good at graphic novels. Frances will be fine, it’ll be fine.’

    Courtney – who was subjected to a restraining order by her 17-year-old daughter just last year – added that the court order no longer applies.

    ‘We don’t speak on the phone, but we went to court so that we could start this thing called Family Wizard where our e-mails are monitored, so there’s no restraining order any more,’ she said.

    Do you think Frances Bean really was tipped for the role of Bella? Or did Katherine Hardwick have her eye on Kristen all along? Let us know in the comments box below.
