Danny Devito’s Early Life
Daniel Michael DeVito Jr. was born in Neptune Township, New Jersey, on November 17, 1944. Fairbank’s illness, a rare inherited condition that restricts bone growth, is thought to be the cause of his short stature.
Fairbank’s disease is a direct result of this ailment (he is 4 feet, 10 inches tall). He is the son of two older sisters and grew up in Asbury Park, New Jersey, where he still lives today. Born in Italy, DeVito was raised Catholic and of Italian descent.
When DeVito graduated, he began working at the ‘Eugene O’Neill Theater Center,’ a theatre company in Waterford, Connecticut. After reading an ad for a role in the film adaptation of ‘In Cold Blood,’ he decided to apply.
On his first tryout in 1978, DeVito was cast as Louie De Palma, the overbearing cab dispatcher in a new “NBC” sitcom called “Taxi.” An Emmy Award for “Best Supporting Actor” was given to him after the show aired for five seasons.
His first film as a filmmaker was 1987’s “Throw Momma from the Train,” in which he also had a small role. Billy Crystal and Rob Reiner also appeared in the film, which was inspired by Hitchcock’s “Strangers on a Train”
In 2012, he made his West End debut in a Neil Simon play titled ‘The Sunshine Boys’. Along with Richard Griffiths, he starred in the play.
When Rhea Perlman went to see DeVito appear in the play “The Shrinking Bride” with a friend on January 17, 1971, she ran into actress DeVito. The couple had moved in together two weeks after they had started dating. On January 28, 1982, they exchanged vows. Three children are the result of their union.
Reuniting after a divorce in October 2012, they married again in March 2013. They split peacefully for the second time in March 2017 but have said that they will not be filing for divorce.
DeVito began his career in off-Broadway musicals before landing his first prominent role on ‘Taxi’ in the early 1990s.
In the past, people have praised him for his humorous timing and witty demeanor. Producing hits like “Pulp Fiction,” “Erin Brockovich,” and “Reno 911!” is also something DeVito excels at.
