Blind Items Revealed - Kindness

December 20, 2013

This height challenged comic actor with the very long career as a B list television and movie actor bought dinner for an entire restaurant two weeks ago. There were over 100 people in the place and paid for it all. When the people asked for the bill at the end of the night they were told it was taken care of but not by who.

Danny DeVito

Ah, so nice.

MISCH said...

sorry for the double

caralw said...

Generous, but perhaps that money could have gone to a better cause than people dining at a restaurant they could probably afford? That isn't saying he doesn't do that also. I just don't know.

nora nader said...

Thank God for Kindness Blinds. Love hearing stories like this.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Just beat Reno on this one! Eat it, blondie :)

Damian said...

Oh my God, Danny DeVito! I love your work!

Karen said...

@caralw, he did something nice for other people, why not leave it at that? I'd hate to have someone else judge the worthiness of how I spend my money. I think it's better to look at what he did, not what he could have done instead. :)

Sarah said...

He should have done limoncello shots with them

Jeannie said...

I was hoping you would stop by with this line Damian!

sandybrook said...

He must have gotten laid right before he went to dinner.

OT: Colbert was announced as Letterman's successor.

I love him, but will be interesting to see how he does out of character and in this format. Best of luck to him!

Jessi said...

Always one in the bunch to complain. Jeez.

Count Jerkula said...

Danny Devito B-List is a travesty.

MovingOn said...

Tried to delete after I realized how late I was to the party on this. Haha! Of course I couldn't beat y'all here :)

Blowing raspberries @Kristin

Its just U said...

+1000 Karen.

rajahcat said...

awww I love that

Leekalicious said...

Very generous gesture.

surfer said...

Totally agree Karen. How people choose to spend their money, is their business.

Tru Leigh said...

Very nice. But doesn't make up for being a drunk and a cheater.

Malibu Borebee said...

As long as I never have to sleep with him, Danny DeVito can do whatever he wants.

Laura said...

Just watched "Ruthless People" last night, hadn't seen it in a long time. What a great movie! DeVito and Midler (and everybody really) are hilarious!

Brittany said...

I love this. I work at a wonderful place that's pretty well known in my hometown and the owner does this every once in awhile on a slow day and doesn't tell anyone. I always think it's really sweet, because you never know how much it could mean to any of those people.

Sammy Davis Jr. used to do this all the time after his Casino shows. He would go out and pay for a couple of hours of meals for everybody in the whole casino.

Sprink said...

@Jessi, always! Drives. Me. In. Sane.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! (And I'm normally very mild.)

Sherry said...

We have no idea where he was eating. It could have been on location in a blue collar area and not necessarily a snooty place. The gesture was lovely nonetheless.

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

I've always LOVED Danny Devito!!!

Lovelyloie said...

I love this....even if those people could have afforded it, maybe then they went and did something nice for someone else.

NaughtyNurse said...

A. How do you know he wasn't in a diner filled with old people?
B. Don't you buy presents for friends and family who can afford to buy their own shit?
C. It's a nice thing to do. Leave it at that.

I lost my langastino!

Leekalicious said...

Giving is giving, and love is love, I think. How far wrong can a person really go with either? Except with STDs maybe.

CanadianMiss said...

JFC! No good deed goes unpunished. amiright?

Persiaa said...

Good for him. He and Bette Middler were so funny in Ruthless People.

Leekalicious said...

@CanadianMiss Uh-huh.

di butler said...

Judging how others spend their money they earned themselves honestly is gross.

Sprink said...

You know, @di, I'm the first one to agree with that. It drives me nuts when others do it.

Then I see the $10 million Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra and I think...well, never mind what I think...
