Help

Over the last forty years Danny DeVito has starred in huge films including The War of The Roses, Twins and Batman Returns.

But it's his latest movie, The Lorax, in which he plays an animated Dr Seuss character, that has been the biggest box office hit of his career.

The film, about a boy trying to locate a mystical tree guardian, will be released in the UK on Friday.

Speaking to the BBC's Colin Paterson, the actor explained how he started off his career as a hairdresser.
