Actors Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are separating after 30 years of marriage, DeVito's spokesman said on Monday (local time).

Stan Rosenfeld said the pair had split but gave no details.

DeVito and Perlman married in 1982 and have three adult children. The duo, both known for playing characters with sharp tongues, acted alongside each other in the 1978-82 TV comedy Taxi, in which she had a recurring role as his character's girlfriend, and in the 1996 children's film Matilda.

Perlman is best known for her role as sarcastic actress Carla Tortelli in the 1980s hit comedy Cheers, for which she won four Emmy Awards.

DeVito, who won an Emmy for his turn as the despotic dispatcher in Taxi, currently stars in the FX comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

The pair also founded TV and movie production company Jersey Films, whose titles include Pulp Fiction and Erin Brockovich.
