Edward Norton saved Courtney Love's life - by getting her off drugs after the death of rocker husband Kurt Cobain. The pair dated after meeting on the set of movie The People Vs. Larry Flynt and the singer-turned-actress says she'll always be grateful for his efforts to get her into a rehabilitation clinic. A drug-fuelled Love was devastated after her lover, Nirvana frontman Cobain, committed suicide in 1994, and her substance abuse continued until she met the actor. She says, "I was high. And then I met Edward, who came to my rescue. It was an intimidating job to be my boyfriend right then. But he got me out of Seattle and he got me into rehab."
