MAN ON THE MOON
One of music's most fascinating
performers with her band Hole, COURTNEY LOVE (Lynne Margulies) made an
auspicious motion picture debut in Milos Forman's The People vs. Larry Flynt,
with her passionate and touching portrayal of Althea Flynt, the real life wife
of Flynt. For this role, Love earned the New York Film Critics' Circle Award for
Best Supporting Actress, the Boston Society of Film Critics' Award for Best
Supporting Actress and the Chicago Film Critics' Most Promising Actress Award.
She was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. Most recently,
Love appeared in the Risa Bramon Garcia feature 200 Cigarettes.
Born in San Francisco, Love was raised
in Eugene, Oregon and New Zealand. She returned to Oregon for good when she was
12, and decided by the age of 13 that she was going to be a rock star and an
actress. In her late teens, she set out on the road, spending a number of years
visiting distant locales such as Japan, Taiwan and England as well as extensive
travel throughout the United States.
In 1990, Love founded the rock band,
Hole. Their first album was the universally-lauded "Pretty On The
Inside." Their next release, "Live Through This," topped nearly
every critic's music poll for 1994, and was certified platinum in April of 1995.
Hailed by critics as an ambitious and triumphant collection of songs, Hole's
third album, double platinum "Celebrity Skin," was released in
September, 1998 and garnered three Grammy nominations.
