Courtney Love will always be known as the leader of Hole, but there was a brief time in the mid-90s where she pursued acting. Though short-lived, her acting career was quite successful (her role in 1996's The People vs. Larry Flynt landed her a Golden Globe nomination). In a recent Instagram post, Love revealed the tragic reason why she decided to leave Hollywood so abruptly.

For a few years, because of [The People vs. Larry Flynt director] Milos Forman, I was a professional actress and a movie star. It was fun as hell. I was nominated for best actress, for a Golden Globe .. One day I might talk about it," Love captioned a series of photos and videos. "I love acting ... I stopped being capable of it after a bunch of #metoos. No one would believe me, and it wouldn’t stop. So I left, and it left. And I’m good with it."

"Maybe, in my next life I’ll be stronger & able to endure it .. I tip my hat to those who can. It was super fun though," she continued.

Love went on to praise working with Forman. "I love it here in England. But I sure do miss acting sometimes. To the tune of a great director. One of the greatest experiences, as a woman you can have, I think," she wrote. "All the glamour that comes after that is fun, flamboyant, gorgeous ! But the trust one can achieve with a great director? It’s one of the most profound things I’ve ever known."
