Are Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem on the Rocks?

It pains us to deliver this news, but Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem's seemingly perfect relationship looks like it could be headed for trouble. Though last we heard, the couple was spending quality time together on a private island near Belize, Spanish gossip hounds now report that the couple is in a state of crisis, and it's all because of Javier's hectic film schedule.

According to Fama and, Pé and Javi had promised to take a year-long sabbatical after shooting Vicky Cristina Barcelona in order to enjoy their coupling 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 Penélope is reportedly not pleased with her boyfriend's change of priorities!

We completely understand where Penélope's coming from, but no matter what movies side projects come along the way, we have a feeling that these Spanish stars are destined for one another. A little work-life imbalance won't stand in the way of their love! What do you think?
