Danny Devito - Danny Devito A 'Babe Magnet'

Danny DeVito is a ''babe magnet,'' according to Michael Douglas.

The 67-year-old actor and director - famed for his short stature - used to share a flat with Michael, and even though he was rooming with a huge Hollywood star, Danny used to get plenty of girls.

He told The Guardian newspaper: ''You know, Michael never had any problem with having Danny around. He always says I'm a babe magnet, but I don't know, I think it's the other way around.''

Danny - who has been happily married to Rhea Perlman for thirty years - said his five foot stature may have felt like a disadvantage when he was a teenager, but it made him learn other skills to impress ladies.

He added: ''I learned how to dance real good. I had to, because [girls didn't want to] slow dance [with me].''

Danny also credits his size with landing him good acting jobs in the early stage of his career.

He said: ''Early on, when I'd go in for a part, people would go, 'Oh'. Later, when they rewind that meeting, it would be, 'We've seen 20 actors for the role of the servant in 'The Merry Wives of Windsor', but wait a minute, we've done this already with this guy, so let's try this Danny guy.' I got two Shakespeare parts like that.''

Danny is currently in talks to star in a sequel to his 1988 film 'Twins', called 'Triplets', which will see him reunited with Arnold Schwarzenegger, and joined in the cast by Eddie Murphy.
