Early Years

Daniel Michael DeVito Jr. was born on November 17, 1944, in Neptune Township, New Jersey. He is only 4 feet, 10 inches tall because he has multiple epiphyseal dysplasia, also called Fairbank's disease. This is a rare genetic trait that affects bone growth and is the reason for his short height. He grew up in Asbury Park, New Jersey, with his two older sisters. DeVito comes from Italy and was brought up as a Catholic.

Career Beginnings

He went to private school and in 1962 got his diploma from Oratory Preparatory School in Summit, New Jersey. When he was in high school, he started playing for the first time by taking part in school productions of "St. Francis of Assisi" and "The Billion Dollar Saint." He started working at his sister's shop after he graduated from high school. He thought it would be a good way to meet girls. After working there for 18 months, he chose to switch jobs because he could make more money selling cosmetics. So, he sent in an application to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. As part of his application, he had to perform a speech. After hearing good things about his monologue, he quickly changed his mind and decided to study acting at school instead. He graduated from the college in 1966.

In his early days as an actor, Danny DeVito  worked with the Colonnades Theater Lab at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut. He was also in shows that the Westbeth Playwrights Feminist Collective put on.


Career as an Actor: DeVito moved from stage to movies with the 1975 film "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." In 1971, he was in an off-Broadway play based on the book, which helped him get the part in the movie. The 1975 movie version was a big hit, and it won all five major Oscars in 1976 (for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Screenplay). DeVito became famous when he played Louie De Palma, a taxi dispatcher, on the TV show "Taxi" from 1978 to 1983. This part helped him stay well-known and popular. In 1981, he won a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work on "Taxi." After "Taxi" ended, DeVito went back to movies. He was in "Terms of Endearment" in 1983, "Romancing the Stone" in 1984, "Ruthless People" in 1986, "Twins" with Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1988, "Other People's Money" in 1991, and "Batman Returns" by Tim Burton in 1992.

In 2006, he went back to TV when he joined the cast of the very popular FX comedy show "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." In the later part of his career, he worked on movies like "Solitary Man" (2009) with Susan Sarandon and longtime friend Michael Douglas, "When in Rome" (2010) with Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel, and Tim Burton's 2019 live-action version of "Dumbo."

Most people agree that DeVito is an actor who plays comedic roles. But he has also played dramatic parts in movies like "The Rainmaker" (1997), "Jack the Bear" (1993), "L.A. Confidential" (1997), "The Big Kahuna" (1999), and "Heist" (2001). He has also done a long number of great voice-over projects. He has done the voices of characters in movies like "My Little Pony: The Movie" (1986), "Hercules" (1997), "Space Jam" (1996), and "The Lorax" (2012). He has also played the character Herb Powell on "The Simpsons" in several episodes. He has also been in TV ads for QuickBooks and M&Ms, and he played a made-up version of himself in the music video for "Steal My Girl" by the British boy band One Direction. In 2011, DeVito was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work on television.

Ventures in production and directing

In 1984, Danny DeVito  made his first movie as a director. It was called "The Ratings Game." He went on to direct many movies, including "Throw Momma from the Train" (1987), "The War of the Roses" (1989), "Hoffa" (1992), "Death to Smoochy" (2002), and "Duplex" (2003). Between 1973 and 2016, he was also the director of eight short films.

In 1991, DeVito and Michael Shamberg started the company Jersey Films to make movies. Stacey Sher joined them soon after as an equal partner. The company has made a lot of movies, but "Man on the Moon" (1999), "Pulp Fiction" (1994), "Garden State" (2004), and "Freedom Writers" (2007) are some of the best known. "Reno 911!" on Comedy Central, which ran from 2003 to 2009, was also made by the same company. In 1991, he began Jersey Films. "Matilda" (1996), which he co-produced, directed, and starred in, and "Erin Brockovich" (2000), for which DeVito, Shamberg, and Sher were nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, are two other movies that stand out.

Personal Life

On January 17, 1971, actor Rhea Perlman went to see a friend in the play "The Shrinking Bride," which DeVito was also in. There, she met DeVito. After two weeks, the two people moved in together. On January 28, 1982, they got married. They have three children together. After being married for 30 years, they split up in October 2012 but got back together in March 2013. They split up for the second time on good terms in March 2017, but they have said they don't want to get a divorce.

DeVito and Perlman have worked together on a number of projects, like the TV show "Taxi" and the movie "Matilda."

Danny and Rhea lived in Beverly Hills, California, for a long time in a 14,579-square-foot house. They bought the property in 1994 and sold it for $24 million in April 2015. A few years before, they had put it on the market off-market for more than $30 million.
