Maybe it isn’t “All Aboard the Train to Splitsville” for Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman after all.
Despite announcing their separation in October, DeVito says the couple is “working on” getting their 30 year marriage back on the right track. DeVito and Perlman — as known for their short statures as they are for their acting resumes — sparked rumors of a reconciliation when they were seen together at LAX Airport last month.
He told Extra TV Wednesday:
“It’s not something you adjust to. Rhea and I are really close. Actually, still together, just separate, but together…We’re working on it.”
Danny and Rhea, both 64, met in 1970, when the future 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.
