Danny DeVito: I'm too short for Strictly Come Dancing
Danny DeVito wouldn't sign up to 'Strictly Come Dancing' because he thinks he's too short and would have an awkward encounter with his female partner's breasts.
Danny DeVito won't do 'Strictly Come Dancing' because he's too short.
The 'Matilda' funnyman claims being vertically challenged would make his appearance on the BBC One ballroom dancing competition X-rated because his head would rest at the same level as his dance partner's breasts.
He joked to Radio Times magazine: "It's true I'm a really good dancer. Oh I'll do the mashed potato all night. Come on, I'm from New Jersey! But I'm not a great slow dancer so ballroom wouldn't work for me.
"I'm on the short side so my head would be right in the boobs. And that's not a good look on prime time."
However, the exuberant star hasn't ruled out a reality TV appearance altogether and he confessed he would like to get up close and personal with 'Project Runway' host and supermodel Heidi Klum.
Asked if he had any guilty pleasures, Danny replied: " 'Project Runway'. It's a fashion design reality show. It's very girly but my daughter got me into it.
"They have a challenge about an outfit and there's all the cattiness and backdoor chiding. And of course Heidi Klum's on it and she's got a figure that will never quit. So yeah, guilty!"
