DeVito a cleanliness freak, reveals Douglas

New York, May 31 (IANS) Hollywood star Michael Douglas has revealed he has one lasting memory of sharing a New York apartment with the ‘Taxi’ actor Danny De Vito as the neatest man he has ever met.

The two stars were roommates at the beginning of their careers in the late 1960s and Douglas still has fond memories of his friend’s organisational skills, reports

‘I had met Danny in summer theatre… and we were roommates together in New York. He was neat! That’s not very good for his image! But he was neat and he was in love with (wife-to-be) Rhea (Perlman), so actually he was a great roommate because I didn’t see him a whole lot because he was with Rhea all the time! And he was so neat,’ said Douglas.
