Danny DeVito, 2012.iCons project for Elton John AIDS Foundation


I shot Danny at the Savoy Theatre, whilst he was appearing in Sunshine Boys. I set up the shoot to happen between his Matinee and Evening Performance. It was a very atmospheric shoot as I set up on the stage. Danny is generally a very relaxed character yet got a little too relaxed on this shoot… he fell asleep halfway through the shoot. I thought he was doing a series of silly faces, winky eyes, that was until the snoring started. As I kicked his chair to bring him out of his slumber he apologised profusely. He explained having been around film sets for so many years he is a professional at taking power naps between takes. Danny is not only a professional napper. He is a professional in all senses of the word. He can turn it on when required of him and he is a library of knowledge when it comes to film. It’s an education to be in his presence. With regard to the shoot, I felt he knew what I wanted. He’s a bit like a woody Allen that way.

ABOUT DANNY DEVITO

Danny DeVito was born in New Jersey in 1944. Bullied as a child for his small stature, he had his big break when he starred in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975).

He rose to fame on the sitcom Taxi (1978-83), for which he won a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy.

DeVito and Michael Shamberg founded Jersey Films. The production company is known for films such as Pulp Fiction. DeVito also owns Jersey Television, which produced the Comedy Central series Reno 911!

He later produced and directed many films, including Matilda (1996) in which he stars alongside his ex-wife, Rhea Perlman. DeVito was also one of the producers nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture for Erin Brockovich.
