Promoting 'Dumbo' in Mexico, actor Danny DeVito unhurt after fall


MEXICO CITY, March 5 () - Actor Danny DeVito gamely carried on with a promotional stop in Mexico for Disney's new "Dumbo" movie on Tuesday after falling as he walked to a small stage, photographers capturing the moment with a frenzy of clicks.

DeVito, the diminutive 74-year-old film and television star, appeared shaken but unhurt after tripping on a step leading to the stage for a news conference. He remained face-down on the floor for a few moments until he was helped to his feet.

"Don't print that picture!" DeVito joked afterward.

DeVito plays circus owner Max Medici in the film directed by Tim Burton that tells the story of a ridiculed baby elephant whose ears are so big he can fly.
