Radar claims the actor is hell-bent on reuniting the estranged pair.
Hooray for Michael Douglas! The veteran actor is single-handedly trying to rescue love and not just by proving that, despite absolutely no historical precedent, an obscenely wealthy, older man can land a much younger, beautiful wife.
No. This time, Michael is channeling his formidable love-rescuing efforts into saving the marriage of Danny DeVitoand Rhea Perlman, a couple whose dramatic split this past October resonated like a bullet tearing through the upper left thigh of happily ever after.
Radar Online reports that the Oscar-winning star is urging the former marrieds to give their union another shot, because, like everyone else in the entire universe could tell them, they are meant to be together and the world will not be right until they reunite.
“Michael loves Rhea and he told Danny he will never find another woman quite like her. They complement each other perfectly and are the best of friends.
“He said he should do whatever it takes to win Rhea back and come to his senses fast before it is too late. It’s because of Michael they are talking to each other.”
Naturally, much of this depends on Rhea’s willingness to put up with Danny’s notorious and somewhat creepy wandering eye. Creepy because… well, when one thinks of an insatiable sex monster, Danny DeVito is quite possibly the last image one wishes to conjure up.
But Michael is reportedly convinced he can help broker a peace agreement between the two and has casually let it slip that the two are now back in communication thanks to his mediation skills.
“They are still trying to work things out, and for the moment they are just good friends, but they are heading in the right direction,” the source continues.
“Michael is well positioned to talk about marriage. He’s been with Catherine (Zeta-Jones) for 12 years now and he learned a lot from his failed first marriage to Diandra (Luker).”
I don’t care if this is a well-positioned bit of PR fluff. Make it happen, Michael! Love is depending on you.
