Natalie Portman and Christian Bale, two film actors, are currently acting in a film together. They’re probably having a great time and enjoying each other’s company and falling in love on set, right? WRONG! They don’t get along a little bit! From the National Inquirer via Celebitchy:

Natalie Portman is so fed up with her “Knight of Cups” co-star Christian Bale, she’s ready to walk off the film set. But since she’s too much of a professional to actually quit, she’s quietly trying to come to terms with his unbearable behavior, an insider told The Enquirer.

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

UH OH! Thank God Natalie Portman is such a professional. Although, “a disgrace to the acting profession”? Hahhahahah. Come on, Natalie Portman! (Or at least come on, inside source!) This is definitely an interesting and important story because outside of the acting profession, everyone loves all their co-workers always and never has any disagreements with any of them or anything bad to say about them over drinks with friends after a day at the office. “Jerry? He’s the best!” That’s all you’ll ever hear from America’s co-workers. Except when it comes to these movie stars because of how hard their lives are. If your life was as hard as a movie star’s life, and if you worked as hard as a movie star works, tensions would be high. You’d be like, “arrogant.” But so let’s delve deeper into this fascinating human portrait and really understand what is going on between these two treasures!

Natalie and Christian have just an hour’s worth of scenes to film together, but Christian’s need for perfection and to be the center of attention is causing the shoot to drag on forever. And that’s driving Natalie nuts, says the insider.

“Christian is constantly frustrated by his own work and incredibly intense and highly stressed over each scene,” noted the source. “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.”

WHAT A CRAZY SCANDAL! Natalie Portman is sick of Christian Bale’s ego because he is dismissive of her and not respectful of her ego. MAYBE THEY SHOULD JUST GET MARRIED ALREADY! Hey, remember when the police were called to Christian Bale’s room because he SHOVED HIS MOM?! Natalie Portman should be more careful. Loose lips get ships SHOVED. We will continue to follow this incredible story, which I’m sure will have many more important and wild updates full of intrigue.

  1. Christian Bale seems like a piece of shit who happens to be a wonderful actor. Natalie Portman seems like a pretty fun person who happens to be an entirely unremarkable actor. This has romantic comedy written all over it!

  2. Also he keeps trying to murder Jared Leto while listening to Huey Lewis and the News

  3. Can we put this article in terms everyone can understand? Thor’s girlfriend doesn’t like Batman, which is weird since she teamed up with V that one time.

    There. I said it.

  4. Natalie Portman is so professional that she was in The Professional. Was Christian Bale in The Professional? No he was not. Team Natalie!

  5. So Knight of Cups will be the 4th one, then?

  6. He’s the co-star Portman deserves, but not the one she needs right now. So we’ll talk about him on blogs. Because he can take it. (jplay he probably can’t take it) Because he’s not our co-star. He’s a silent guardian of goblets, a watchful protector of coffee mugs. A dark knight of cups.

  7. Somebody get me an audio mashup of Christian Bale’s last rant interspersed with lines from Natalie Portman in Garden State STAT!

  8. Here’s what I don’t get: Why is it that it’s now 2012 and yet we STILL haven’t come together as a race – a unified human race of humanity – and declared officially that my precious Natalie Portman is the prettiest? I bessseeeeeech yyyyoooou

  9. Ever seen Mr. Magorium… or Your Highness. Talk about disgraces.

  10. You are working on a film with the greatest living American director, STFU.

  11. Sounds like they are both typical of the acting profession anyway…if you ask me its this insider who is a disgrace to whatever the equivalent of profession is for being an insider telling things to the national enquirer.
