How Courtney Love Once Saved Chris RockPublished by Runteldat on Friday, February 18, 2011 at 11:50 am.
Courtney Love’s name is usually attached to things like drugs and brawls. However, in a new interview with Esquire, Chris Rock gives the rocker credit for actually preventing a fight.
The comedian explains that actor Jude Law was offended when Rock, hosting the Oscars in 2005, joked that the he played himself in “every movie.”
Law then spotted Rock later on and approached him, but Courtney intervened.
Rock told Esquire:
“I was sitting with Courtney Love, and she might’ve saved me from a fight. I’m not going to say ass-whipping . . . But you never know—he’s hanging out with Guy Ritchie. Those guys go at it.” Rock admits Love managed to scare Law off: She “kind of barked, or was growling, and that was it.”
Man, you’re from Brooklyn, you could’ve handled him. Anyway, let’s give Courtney a round of applause – for her behavior in 2005 anyway.
If you’ve read any of her tweets in the last two years, you’re well aware that she’s still pretty much barking and growling at people.
As for Chris, well, five years ago he was rescued and five years later he rescued someone else. Now, whoever rescues Lil’ Kim from herself, whew, you’re in there…
