Funnyman Hollywood actor Danny DeVito said that he was 'amazed' and 'astounded' to wake up the other morning and discover that he had grown in height by almost 8 inches.
The midget star of movies such as Twins and the television comedy Taxi, said he thought this day would never come.
"I've been a short ass for my whole life. It's made me bitter, twisted, egocentric, greedy, manipulative, evil, nasty and spiteful. In fact, its made me a true Hollywood mogul. But put aside the fame, the fortune, the babes, the cash and all that other cool shit and it got pretty lonely being the little guy…", he mused.
DeVito's growth spurt has meant that he can no longer be considered for the role of 'the angry midget' or the 'short-assed sleazy shyster'.
"I see this as the beginning of a new stage of my career", he said, "Now that I'm at least 5 ft 1', I can play the roles of children in family movies or the back-end of a Shetland pony".
