On “Kimmel,” Courtney Love Says She Bonded with Dave Grohl over Boobs

Mercury RecordsOn Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night, Courtney Love talked about her newly-reignited acting career, and what it took to re-bond with Dave Grohl, with whom she recently reconciled after years of feuding over the legal fate and use of Nirvana's music.

They're so close, she even has a duet in mind.

The pair publicly buried the hatchet at this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction of Nirvana, and have since have given complimentary comments in interviews about their newly repaired relationship.

When asked about Grohl and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Love told Jimmy, "Kris..he kind of herds goats. I don't really talk to Kris -- [but] We're cool."

"Dave and me," she continued, "a lot of people saw the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where we hugged it out, and it was all good," recalling, "We used to really like each other, and then there was 20 years when we sued each other -- and then we stopped." 

So how did the pair get to patching up those old wounds? Apparently by bonding over boobs. 

"The other night [Dave and I] just started talking about this one actress' boobs, and, you know, we'd both seen them," she told Kimmel, adding, "At one point when she was 20, they were like the sexiest boobs in Hollywood...and we just, you know, picked up where we left off, after 20 years of suing each other."

"That's a helluva thing to bring you together," Jimmy remarked. Incidentally, breasts seem to be a recurring theme in their relationship, as Courtney recently told the New York Post that she and Grohl have a 10 thousand dollar bet as to who can attract the most attention from strippers. 

"Isn't it cool? Me and Grohl are totally tight," Love told Kimmel. "I mean, look, if you can give up a grudge like that -- because there was a lot of crap that went on -- I think anybody could."

The pair are so tight, she'd consider performing a duet with Grohl.  "'Islands in the Stream,' yeah, me and Dave Grohl," she said to much applause, referring to the Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers classic. "That would be beautiful," Kimmel replied.

Love also talked about her recurring role on Sons of Anarchy, in which the Hole frontwoman plays, of all things, a schoolteacher. She explained she "stalked" show creator Kurt Sutter to help land the gig in the series' final season. 

Love, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role in the 1996 movie The People vs. Larry Flynt, will also appear in a recurring role as a rock star in the upcoming Fox drama Empire.
