What are Danny DeVito’s net worth and earnings?

Danny DeVito is an award-winning American actor, comedian, film director and producer who has a net worth of $80 million. He first gained attention for his portrayal of taxi dispatcher Louie De Palma on the television series “Taxi”, for which he won a Golden Globe and an Emmy. He went on to become a major film star, known for film roles such as “Throw Momma from the Train”, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, “Terms of Endearment”, “Romancing the Stone”, “Twins”, “Batman Returns”, “Get Shorty” and “L.A. Confidential”. He also stars on the FX comedy series “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”.


He attended boarding school, graduating from Oratory Preparatory School in Summit, New Jersey, in 1962. It was while there in high school that he first began acting, appearing in school productions of “St. Francis of Assisi” and “the Billion Dollar Saint.” After graduating from high school, he began working at his sister’s salon, which he thought was a good way to meet girls. After working there for 18 months, he decided to switch to the cosmetics profession, which was more lucrative. Thus, he applied to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and he was required to perform a monologue as part of his application. Following the positive feedback he received for his monologue, he quickly switched to study acting at the school instead, and graduated from the academy in 1966.

After 30 years of marriage, they separated in October 2012, before reconciling in March 2013.
