Danny DeVito Height

It's fun to be on the edge. I think you do your best work when you take chances, when you're not safe, and when you're not in the middle of the road, at least for me, anyway.

Great actor and comedian, Danny DeVito is known for many things -- his height is one of them or lack thereof.

Danny is short and has always been towered over by everyone around him -- men, women, and children included. Though when seen with tall actors like Arnold Schwarzenneger and even Sharon Stone, we realize just how short is he exactly -- most certainly under 5 feet.

Interestingly, in Hollywood, Danny DeVito is thought to be just 4 feet 9 inches tall, even Arnold Schwarzenegger described him as.

Though it certainly looks like that now close to his 80s, Danny DeVito is even shorter than he used to be. Height loss happens with age, due to compression in spinal discs -- but mostly taller and bulkier people get the worst of it.

The height of Danny DeVito in his prime was

4'10" or 147.3 cm

His present height is

4'9" or 145 cm
