Newly-separated actor DANNY DEVITO stepped out in public for the first time since his split from longtime wife Rhea Perlman, insisting he's doing well in the wake of the break-up.

The Twins star and his actress wife stunned fans after announcing they had separated after 30 years of marriage earlier this month (Oct12).

DeVito and the Cheers funnywoman have laid low since the news broke, but the beloved actor was spotted out and about in Malibu, California on Monday (22Oct12).

When asked by reporters from how he was holding up after the split, he smiled and replied, "Everything's good", before giving a thumbs up gesture.

DeVito and Pearlman are yet to file divorce papers.
