They’re only a few weeks into filming, but reports have emerged suggesting that Ocean’s Eight cast members Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway are ‘butting heads’ on set.

An insider says that while Cate, 47, is ‘very laid-back and easy going,’ Anne, 34, ‘is rubbing her the wrong way’.

‘They had a few angry words and didn’t speak for a few days,’ says the insider. ‘Now they’re trying to keep things cordial … but it’s difficult to say the least.’

This isn’t the first time Anne has been penned as difficult to work with, with her 2011 Oscar’s co-host James Franco agreeing with Howard Stern when he said, ‘Everyone sort of hates Anne Hathaway, and I’ve explained that I do too and I don’t know even know why sometimes. She’s just so affected [and] actress-y that even when she wins an award she’s out of breath, and then she has the standard joke that sounds like it’s [been] written [for her]. And it all seems so scripted and acted. She comes off like the goody-two-shoes actress and it’s just fun to sort of hate her. Hate is a strong word… but [I] dislike her, even though she is a great actress. Is that accurate?’

Leave Anne alone!
