How Tall Are Danny Devito’s Wife And Kids?

Danny DeVito may be known for his gruff character and equally gruff voice, but what some people recently realized is his height. The Emmy-winning actor’s stature became a topic of discussion on social media after appearing alongside his It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-actors at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards on January 15, 2024.

While many know that the legendary actor falls on the shorter side, recent social media comments revealed that some were just realizing how short he is. Some were also curious to know if his family members share his stature.

DeVito Height

On average, DeVito stands at 4 feet 10 inches (1.47 meters) tall, which is below average. While the star jokingly claims to be ‘5ft nothing,’ he actually measures 4 feet 10 inches.

DeVito’s height is due to Multiple Epiphyseal Dysplasia (MED), a genetic condition affecting bone growth. People with this disorder are typically shorter than average and may experience joint pain during exercise.

However, his stature has never hindered him. In fact, he believes his height has helped him secure numerous roles in the film industry.

In a previous interview with The Guardian, he stated,

“It all worked out for me. But acting is like any other business — if you’ve got it in your heart that you want to write stories, paint paintings, or build bridges, if you want to do anything. Once you’ve been bitten by that bug, it’s your passion and you have to follow it. That’s true whether you’re tall, short, black, white, green, yellow.”

So, Danny has always considered his height an advantage from the start.

But how tall is his wife and children?

Danny DeVito’s Wife’s Height

Danny DeVito’s wife, Rhea Perlman stands at a height of 4 feet 11.8 inches (1.52 meters). Comparing her height to her husband’s, that’s about a 1.8-inch (4.572-centimeter) difference. This explains why DeVito always appears significantly shorter than his wife in photos.

Perlman is recognized as an actress, producer, and writer, with notable credits including appearances in popular shows like Cheers (1982), and films such as Canadian Bacon (1995), Carpool (1996), and Matilda (1996), where she starred alongside Danny DeVito as his on-screen husband. Additionally, she has featured in projects like Stroller Wars (2006), I’ll See You in My Dreams (2015), and provided the voice of Judith in Sing (2016). Recently, she has appeared in Poms (2019) and Marvelous and the Black Hole (2022).

Danny DeVito’s Children’s Heights

DeVito and Perlman have three children together: Lucy Chet DeVito (the firstborn), Grace Fan DeVito (second-born), and Jacob Daniel DeVito.

In terms of height:

  • Lucy Chet DeVito is 4 feet 11 inches (or 1.5 meters).
  • Grace Fan DeVito is 5 feet 7 inches (1.7 meters).
  • Jake is 5 feet 5 inches (or 1.65 meters).

As seen, all of DeVito and Perlman’s children are taller than them, with Grace being the tallest member of the family.

Besides their heights, it’s worth noting that DeVito’s children are all in the entertainment industry. Lucy is an actress known for roles such as “Sue” in Deadbeat (2007) and “Jenny” in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (2016). She has also appeared in TV series like Shameless and the film, Dumbo.

Grace DeVito is a producer, with one of her recent projects being the animated series, Jeff & Some Aliens (2017).

Similarly, Jake is involved in the entertainment industry, working behind the scenes as an actor, producer, and director. He’s known for producing comedic shorts like Curmudgeons (2016) and Little Demons, where he collaborated with his father and older sister, Lucy.
