17-year-old Allison Closs wanted to have the perfect prom date. That’s why she took a cardboard cutout of Danny DeVito instead of a real, live, date. She told the New York Post that she considered other celebrities “like Bill Nye the Science Guy, but many of them would [have required] ordering a custom-made cutout.” She’s also a huge fan of his show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the cutout only cost $100.
Sometimes celebrities who see stories like this will acknowledge them with a reply tweet or comment. Danny DeVito went above and beyond in his response. His It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-star Rob McElhenney relayed DeVito’s response on Instagram.
