It’s been awhile since we’ve had a good dose of crazy unsubstantiated speculation, but one can always count on The National Enquirer to come through with the goods.

According to a “source”, Natalie and Christian Bale are not getting along on Knight of Cups. Natalie is so frustrated by Bale’s perfectionism and seriousness that she’s ready to walk off the project! I wonder if these idiots even realize that Natalie is only shooting for a week. With big gaps between a lot of the filming days. This kind of story would probably be better used for two actors who have to see and deal with each other every day, no?

“Natalie can’t stand him,” an “insider” tells The National Enquirer. “She thinks he’s tedious, arrogant and a disgrace to the acting profes­sion.”

“A disgrace to the acting profession?” That’s a bit much. What exactly did Christian do to earn Natalie’s scorn?

“Christian is constantly frustrated by his own work and incredibly intense and highly stressed over each scene,” The Enquirer’s snitch says. “He’ll insist they shoot over and over again because he didn’t like how he punctuated a line or something. Sometimes they wind up spending all night on the set just to satisfy Christian’s obsessive perfectionism. … Natalie’s really offended by Christian’s behavior and feels he’s com­pletely dismissive of her. She thinks he’s all about his ego, and he doesn’t care who he insults or inconve­niences.”
