Washington, (ANI): Actor Danny DeVito has revealed that he and
fellow star Michael Douglas were once rescued by the coast guard,
after they found themselves lost at sea during their ill-fated
sailing expedition in the Sixties. He said that the incident
happened when he got onto a catamaran with Douglas after being
convinced by the latter that he knew how to sail it.
"Michael brought me to Connecticut once. He had some friends who
said they had a catamaran. I didn't even know what a catamaran
was," Contactmusic quoted him as saying. "He said, 'Come on, let's
get a couple of six-packs (of beer) and go out.' I figured he knew
how to drive it. We went out into the water, drank the six-packs -
we couldn't get back," he added. DeVito also revealed that other
people, who were also sailing at that time, were using them as a
buoy. "And there were people out there sailing, using us as a buoy,
going around us. We had to get rescued," he said.
