The fallout from Danny Devito's divorce continues this week, with several of the New Jersey actor's showbiz pals apparently in shock over the breakdown of his marriage to Rhea Perlman.

John Ratzenberger, a friend of both stars but who appeared opposite Rhea in 'Cheers', was astounded to hear the news when approached by "I didn't know. Are you serious? Oh that's sad. We were just with them the other night. They'd been together a long time - oh that's sad." Danny and Rhea were considered to have one of the strongest marriages in Hollywood. They wed in 1982 and have three children together, Lucy, 29, Grace, 27 and Jacob, 25. The pair worked together on television show 'Taxi' but are both perhaps best known for their turn as a squabbling married couple in the movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's 'Matilda'. They are yet to provide any more information on the reasons for their split.

DeVito has recently been promoting his movie The Lorax, though it's his forthcoming project that will be of most interest to fans of the star. The 67-year-old is to reprise his role alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in 'Triplets', a sequel to their hit comedy 'Twins'.
