He made us laugh in ‘Twins’, made us go a little crazy in ‘Matilda’ and made us remember why we love him so much in the TV series, ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’. Danny DeVito is one of those actors who makes you smile, whether he’s acting as the funny little guy or as the loud-mouthed and nasty one.
You know what would be really interesting? It would be super fun to check out the actor’s statistic, especially since they have defined his roles so much. Here goes nothing…
Danny DeVito’s Height
Anyone from a mile away can see that the actor is quite lacking on the tall side, but what he lacks in height he makes up for in acting skills. Danny DeVito is of Italian descent, he has brown eyes and what is left of his hair was once brown too (It’s mostly white now, old age catches up with the best of us).
Danny DeVito’s height is somewhat a mystery, the topic of whether he is a dwarf or just a really short man, has been a subject of speculation more than once. His height is listed as 5 feet 0 inches, but there are many who would say that he’s being ‘fluffed’.
If he is actually 5 feet 0 inches, that would mean celebrities like Hayden Panettiere, Jada Pinkett Smith and her daughter Willow share Danny DeVito’s height. That would also mean, Kevin Hart, who we all know as a pretty short guy, is at least 4 inches taller than him. So where were did we arrive on the claim that he’s a dwarf again?
In this day and age, the ‘short guy’ does not have the same limited roles as he would have had back in the day. Danny has one or two things to say about the roles he was ‘most suited’ for in Hollywood. ‘On a really good day, I’m five feet short. It’s pretty difficult for me to play anything but the little guy. I don’t play a good victim so I’m always the nasty little guy.’
People would agree that he plays his roles well, but they are clearly not on the same page when it comes to Danny DeVito’s height. Even his co-star in ‘Twins’ described him as 4 feet 9 inches, then again his co-star was Arnold Schwarzenegger and we don’t believe anything he says that has to do with height.
So finally, in 2011, Danny decided to come out with the specifics, he said he is 4 feet 11 inches and three quarters. We believe you, Danny.
Danny Devito’s Weight
Danny DeVito’s weight also plays a great part in the kind of roles he gets and who he is in Hollywood as a whole, do not get us started on what it has done for his entertainment value. So it’s highly likely that the star does not feel an atom of remorse about being slightly over weight. It works for him and according to Danny himself, he has appetites.
It is quite obvious that the actor is not best friends with the gym, his physique alone is a testament to that. The actor weighs 88 kg and he’s living a good life so it doesn’t really rub him the wrong way. It did when he was a younger man, but now he mostly just giggles about his body shape.
For trying sake, Danny does attempt to develop a regimented eating habit. ‘I am dependably on an eating routine man!’ he declared in online networking then as if it was in a bid to negate what he just said, he added that he wanted to get calories with lager and vodka.
Either way, his weight is working for him and he is healthy as far as we know.
Danny DeVito’s Measurements
We tried people, but we could not glean all the actor’s body measurements, but we did not come backempty-handed because that is not how we roll. We present to you, Danny DeVito’s shoe size.
The actor wears a US shoe size 9, a European size 42 and a UK size 8.5. Not bad at all Danny, we take back the part about him being a dwarf.
