Hollywood actress COURTNEY LOVE is planning to make a film of PAULA YATES' life - and intends to play the late British TV star herself.
Love actually met Paula, the former wife of SIR BOB GELDOF, and a former partner of INXS rocker MICHAEL HUTCHENCE, just days before her premature death last year (00) - and has told friends the chance encounter was a sign from God.
She has told friends, "We exchanged numbers and made plans to hang out. I still can't believe she's dead - but I believe that I met her for a reason - and now I'll bring her true story to the world." (TM/WNTST/CPT)
