Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are separating after 30 years of marriage.

The two married back in 1982 and have 3 children together.

DeVito (5'0") and Perlman (5'1") met in 1970 when Rhea went to see an off-Broadway play, The Shrinking Bride ... which featured Danny.

The two began dating soon after and lived together for 11 years before tying the knot.

A rep for the couple confirmed the split -- but has no further comment at this time.

I've seen Danny DeVito out at restaurants twice over the last few years, once with his wife and family and the other with a group of people - both times i was struck at how much he drank and how he became a bit louder and sillier - and one time he literally lay over on the banquette at the end of the night. I remember than b/c right before there had been some George Clooney interview where he said he and DD had been up drinking limoncello and GC kept tossing his in the potted plant next to him bc he couldn't keep up. For someone of his stature (both physically and professionally) it doesn't seem like healthy behaviour. As sad as a split it, maybe it'll be a wake up call to get his act together? They both seem like awfully nice people.

They've been together for so long. What can go so wrong with someone who has been part of your life for 41 years? That's really sad.

I am surprised it lasted this long. Back in the late '90's I was a flight attendant and on a flight, Mr. DeVito was flirting with a co-worker heavily. He even gave her his number and wanted to get together with her while we were in town on a layover. I don't blame him, my co-worker was a former beauty pageant queen...

I never thought these two would split, they were made for each other but I guess not.

I met them once in a store and they were so down to earth and nice. They didn't leave until everyone that wanted an autograph had one and even took photos with some. Very sad.

That's really sad. You would think after 41yrs together they would have learned to work out anything that came along. Hopefully after some time apart they can work it out.

Supposedly she has serious mental issues.

If these two crazy kids can't make it last more than 30 years, what hope is there for the rest of us?
