Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz going through romance difficulties?

November 25, 2008

(ChattahBox) — Spanish gossip hounds Fama and 20minutos.es, are reporting that Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, are going through a rough patch in their seemingly strong relationship. Reportedly Javier Bardem had promised to take a year-long sabbatical after shooting Vicky Christina Barcelona in order to enjoy their romance to the fullest. But Javier broke that promise by signing on to star in Biutiful, the latest movie by Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu. Filming is now underway in Barcelona, and Penelope is reportedly not pleased with her boyfriend’s change of priorities.

There may be more to this then meets the eye though. We recall that Javier backed out of his lead role in Rob Marshall’s upcoming musical, Nine. At the time his camp said that Bardem loved the script and the idea of working with Marshall, but he pulled out because he is exhausted from work and awards seasons, and will take as long as a year to recharge his batteries.” One thought that this was really an excuse to spend time with Penélope.

But Penelope herself has been busy working on next month’s “Nine” opposite Nicole Kidman and Daniel Day Lewis, who replaced Bardem when he bowed out. So if there really is a pact to spend time together it seems that both of them broke it?
