Courtney Love says Mel Gibson saved her from her drug addiction.
The former heroin addict - who was married to the late Nirvana frontman Kurt
Cobain - says she refused to seek professional help until the 'Lethal Weapon'
actor forced her to.
She told Britain's Sunday Times magazine: "I kept slamming the door in his
face. There were two drug people with me who wouldn't leave so he couldn't
get me to rehab. But because of Mel, the drugs people ran off to have a
cheeseburger with him, because he's Mel, and then my drug minder Warren
could get me into rehab."
The 48-year-old confessed she still regrets breaking off her romance with
actor Edward Norton, whom she met while she was on tour with her band Hole.
She said: "I've either had the very good guys or the bad. I left Ed Norton,
who was good and wonderful for an average bad man. It's upsetting."
The outrageous singer also admitted she can't stop herself getting naked in
Courtney - who famously flashed her breasts on the David Letterman show -
says her body looks too good to be covered up.
She said: "I'm in my prime, my body looks great. Nudity comes easy to me. I
would drink before I go on TV and somehow my shirt would come off."
Courtney has turned to Buddhism - to make amends for her reckless life.
The Hole singer - who was married to the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - says she turns to the ancient faith whenever she has a problem.
She told Britain's The Sunday Times magazine: "I did it first to get myself off the streets, to get my band really famous, to get a Nirvana tour, and I ended up with a Nirvana husband. Now I want to chant for what my mission is. Those wreckages I've made - I need to make amends for those."
Despite her drug-fuelled past, Courtney is convinced she has been a good mother to her and Kurt's 14-year-old daughter Frances Bean.
She said: "I believe in myself as a parent. My daughter does not curse, she never smoked, she has never kissed a boy, she is a total square. That did not happen from the nannies."
