Next time you are in rural Mexico surrounded by venomous snakes, you might want to think about inviting Danny DeVito along. During a guest appearance on 'The Talk,' DeVito took audiences back to the early 80s by sharing a behind-the-scenes story from the film 'Romancing the Stone.'
DeVito explained how he and co-star Michael Douglas came across a man with a flatbed truck filled with snakes.
“The guy’s got a snake on his arm,” DeVito said. “And he says, ‘Mr. Douglas, Mr. Douglas.’ And all the kids are coming around. Michael grabs the snake and I say, ‘Michael, don’t touch that snake! That’s a snake man. That snake could bite you, man.'”
Though Douglas should have listened to DeVito, he went forward and held the dangerous snake anyways. “Wack! The snake bites him on the hand,” DeVito said. “The guy gets it off. I overheard that the best thing to do is you suck the poison out right away. So I did!”
At this point in the story, the entire audience is cheering and clapping in amazement. DeVito then told how he “Grabbed his hand … spitting all over the place. And I said, ‘It’s a good thing this thing didn’t bite you on the balls man! You would be a dead man!’”
