We didn't see this one coming. After more than thirty years of marriage (which is a long time for any couple—but is practically eternity in Hollywood), Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are getting divorced, Entertainment Tonight revealed. We know. We're bummed too.
They married in January in 1982 and have three children together: 29-year-old Lucy, 27-year-old Grace and 24-year-old Jacob. In addition to their family together, the couple worked on the sitcom "Taxi" (from 1978-1983) and starred opposite each other in the 1996 comedy "Matilda."
They also founded Jersey Films together, which went on to become the production company behind movies such as "Pulp Fiction," "Garden State," "Erin Brockovich" and "Freedom Writers." In other words, they have a lot of history as the DeVito-Perlman dream team.

Once, when asked the secret to his happy marriage, DeVito replied, "Love. I mean, really. [But] you know what? Who knows. The secret to success is to try to never figure that out." Well, it was a nice thought.
DeVito currently stars on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and recently voiced "The Lorax," while Perlman has had stints on "Hot in Cleveland," "The Sessions" and "Wilfred."
We might have to watch some old "Cheers" reruns tonight.
