"Based on the characters he plays, you're expecting something completely different, but I'm six-one, and he was almost at eye level, with a solid frame of lean muscle," said Appleby, surmising that trick camera angles must have been used to make DeVito look like Arnold Schwarzenegger's shorter brother in the 1988 film Twins. "And his face had these really sculpted, almost classical features. The camera really doesn't do him justice." Appleby added that he couldn't believe the flaxen-haired Nordic woman standing next to DeVito in the terminal was the actor's longtime wife, Rhea Perlman.
