The 74-year-old actor said in an interview with Extra published Sunday that he wasn't hurt during his onstage tumble at a press conference for the film.
"I'm in great shape, I am really good," he assured fans. "As I say to people, I am known to throw myself at the press and I did that day try to emulate Dumbo... but I didn't have my feather with me, did not fly."
DeVito, who voices Max Medici in Dumbo, was promoting the Disney live-action remake March 5 in Mexico City, Mexico, when he tripped on stage and took a hard fall.
"I just flew on that stage," the star recounted. "It was amazing -- I didn't get hurt at all."
"Here you are in Mexico, you are promoting the movie, I come onstage, i caught my foot on the top of the step. I knew I was going, I just went with it, surfed across the stage. It was like a flop," he said.
DeVito's rep, Stan Rosenfield, previously told USA Today the actor was "fine" after his fall.
