Actor DANNY DeVITO charmed his future wife RHEA PERLMAN by playing dumb roles on stage.
The Cheers actress knew DeVito was the man for her despite only seeing him play less than intellectual men.
She says, "He didn't even speak words most of the time that were intelligible.
"He was playing this demented stable boy and I was very taken with him."
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
