"Dumbo" premiere: DeVito says "bring a Kleenex"

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Actor Colin Farrell talked about his recent career break at the European premiere of Disney's new version of "Dumbo" in London on Monday (March 21).

"Just the way it happened I had about eight or nine or ten months off which I haven't had in a long time, so I was just home with the kids, it was good," he explained.

Asked if his children got bored of seeing him at home, he said: "Ah yeah they do anyway, on the daily, yeah yeah." The star-studded premiere for "Dumbo," director Tim Burton's live action retelling of the story of a ridiculed baby elephant whose ears are so big he can fly, was also attended other cast-members, including Eva Green and Danny DeVito, both of whom have worked with Burton before.

DeVito, who plays circus owner Max Medici in the film, promised that the movie is tear-jerker.

"You look at that baby (elephant) and it's just, you melt, when you see this movie, bring a Kleenex, but it's a good movie, it's funny and happy," he said.

"Dumbo" opens across the U.S. and U.K. on March 29." (Production: Edward Baran)
