LOS ANGELES—US comic actor Danny DeVito has separated from his wife of 30 years Rhea Perlman, his spokesman said Monday, ending one of the longest marriages in Hollywood.

The diminutive actor, 67, and actress Perlman, 64, married in 1982, 12 years after meeting when she went to see a Broadway show he was acting in, “The Shrinking Bride.”
