He's just the cutest!
You'd think EVERY actor waits and dreams of the day they get a call to a Dr. Seuss character, but Danny DeVito says he didn't play The Lorax for his career (gasp!). He took the part for his kids!
Daddy DeVito recently revealed that his three children (Lucy, 28, Grace, and 26, and Jacob, 24) have a huge influence in the rolls he takes — Not just the The Lorax.
Vito says he did Matilda and a lesser know part, in a My Little Pony movie, to make his daughter's happy. He admits:
"I had done voices before and the first thing I did — because of my kids — I did My Little Pony. I played the king or somebody like that in the first My Little Pony."
Now Danny's kids are a little older, but he still dedicating his Lorax performance to his them.
Cause their always his babies and he's awesome like that!!
