What hot Hollywood role did Downton Abbey‘s Mr. Pamuk, aka Theo James, just land? And what’s the Crocodile Hunter‘s daughter doing now? All this, plus some good news for once for Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman fans, in today’s Last Lap.
Love is a battlefield, and 2012 was not immune the heart’s harsh ways. Celebrity relationships had a tough go at things this year and saw a record number of sad splits (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett), shocking divorces (Heidi Klum and Seal) and close-call almost breakups (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). But 2012 also saw a few reconciliations (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez), giving us hope for 2013. Browse through our gallery of the 20 biggest breakups of 2012 and tell us which split was the most devastating to watch.
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.
