Given that many celebrity marriages seem to endure for less time than the shelf life of a container of milk, the news that Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are putting an end to marriage of 30 years – which is like 300 years in non-celebrity terms – continues to send shockwaves far beyond Tinsletown.
DeVito and Perlman, who said their “I Do’s” in 1982, have three adult children, and are co-owners of a successful movie production company, which has churned out such fan favorites as Pulp Fiction, Garden State, and the film that won Julia Roberts an Oscar (which some pundits probably once said was as unlikely as a 30-year celebrity marriage),Erin Brockovich.
While no official reason for the split has been announced or leaked, a source close to the power couple told Radar Online that their marriage has been on the rocks for at least a decade, and that DeVito’s “wandering eyes,” which apparently wander frequently towards women who aren’t named Rhea Perlman, is part of the reason why there won’t be a 31st wedding anniversary bash.
DeVito, who played the indelible Louie De Palma on the hit sitcom Taxi, also starred in such hits as Twins, War of the Roses, Hoffa, and Throw Momma from the Train. Perlman, who played the wise-cracking barmaid Carla on Cheers in addition to a stint as DeVito’s love interest on Taxi, has starred in several film and TV roles, including Frasier, Becker and Ally McBeal.
