On Thursday, the Hole rocker told host Howard Stern that her 20-year-old daughter was offered the role of Bella Swan in the films, but rejected the opportunity because she objected to the vampire storylines.

Love told the host, "When she was 13 she was offered Twilight, she was offered (the part of) Bella in Twilight. Someone just saw a picture of her in a magazine and sent me the script for Twilight. She was like, 'That's a sexist Mormon piece of s**t'. She was 13. It would have destroyed her life."
Courtney also discussed how she is rebuilding her relationship with Frances, who recently filed an extreme restraining order against the singer, telling Stern: ''I'm really good with my daughter now - we're emailing and tweeting."

Stewart played the role of Bella in the five Twilight movies, which have grossed more than $2 billion worldwide.
