Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman Split

Stick a fork in ’em! It’s “All Aboard the Train to Splitsville” for one of Hollywood’s most enduring twosomes.

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman — as known for their short statures as they are for their acting resumes — are separating after 30 years of marriage.

Danny and Rhea, both 64, met when the Cheers actress bought a ticket to see the off-Broadway play, The Shrinking Bride — which DeVito was appearing in. They tied the knot in 1982.

The couple founded a production company, which they christened Jersey Films. The studio would go on to produce Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 film Pulp Fiction as well as the comedy Garden State. Danny and Rhea portrayed on-screen husband and wife in the 1996 fantasy film Matilda.

DeVito and Perlman have three adult children, Lucy, 29, Daniel, 25, and Grace, 27.
