Danny Devito suffers unfortunate tumble as he falls on stage at Dumbo event

Poor Danny Devito took an unfortunate tumble as he fell on the stage at a press conference for Dumbo.

The 74-year-old, who plays ringmaster Max Medici in Tim Burton’s live-action remake of the Disney classic, was in Mexico City yesterday to talk about the film.

But he lost his footing while climbing up onto the stage and making his way to his seat.

The actor was pictured falling flat on his face before a few people rushed over to help him back to his feet.

He appeared to be absolutely fine though and saw the funny side of it as he smiled and chuckled after making it to his seat.

After sitting down, Danny told the audience: "I think I’m okay."

He then let out a laugh as he joked: "No printing that picture."

A video taken at the event shows Danny smiling and waving at the crowd as he steps up onto the stage.

Missing his footing, he goes down, but it’s not long before he’s back on his feet.


Gasps are heard going around the room as he falls as one person is heard saying: "Oh my God".

Danny reassures everyone he’s fine though, telling them simply: "I tripped."

Cheers and applause echo around the room as he gets back up.

The new Dumbo movie also stars Michael Keeton, Colin Farrell and Eva Green.


Danny said he was drawn to it because of its "never give up" theme.

According to the Evening Standard , he said: "In life, you see all the different things that infiltrate the good things in life.

"Things that surprise you come out of nowhere. Like when you think you’re making a move with someone who maybe is duplicitous. In terms of a younger person, or an older person, by now you guys must have learned this already, I hope, but the idea is that you can’t always believe what somebody tells you.


"Sometimes it messes up all your hopes and dreams, but if you all stick together possibly you could get out of it and there’ll be a happy ending."
