Prepare to have Matilda ruined for you forever, you guys. Celebrity evergreen couple Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are separating after 30 years of marriage. The adorable couple’s rep confirmed the sad news to Entertainment Tonight earlier today, and it gave us the worse case of the Monday’s ever. The pair have known each other since 1970, when Perlman saw DeVito performing on Broadway in The Shrinking Bride. Sparks flew pretty quickly, and they moved in together after only two weeks! Perlman told People back in 1983 that DeVito “was a lot more fun and a lot more sexy” than other guys in her past.
They tied the knot in 1982, and have three children together. The actors became close professionally as well, working together in episodes of DeVito’s classic television sitcom Taxi and of course as the parents from hell in the aforementioned Matilda. Together they founded the production company Jersey Films, which was responsible for hits like as Pulp Fiction, Garden State and the TV show Reno 911. We have to admit that we’re honestly really sad about this news, but we tried hard to find a silver lining. The best we got is: Hey ladies, Danny DeVito is back on the market! We hope the sharp-tongued twosome find their way back to each other.
