For many years, audiences have been enthralled by the talented and charming actor Danny DeVito. Born in 1944 in Neptune, New Jersey, DeVito endured bullying as a child due to his height. Despite the challenges, he developed a strong enthusiasm for performing and graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1966.
In order to advance his profession, DeVito relocated to Hollywood after working at his sister’s hair salon. He adopted the flower child lifestyle there, but acting remained his dream. He pursued Off-Broadway theater after returning to New York City, which is how he accidentally met Rhea Perlman.
Rhea Perlman, a native of Brooklyn, New York, shared an ambition of becoming an actress. When Rhea attended an Off-Broadway show with DeVito in 1970, their paths met. Enthralled with DeVito’s performance, Rhea arranged a date, and their acquaintance blossomed into a romantic relationship.
Lucy Grace, Grace Fan, and Jake are the three children that DeVito and Perlman had after getting married in 1982. After 35 years of marriage, the couple announced their split in 2017. Even after their breakup, they maintain a friendly relationship for the sake of their children.
Lucy Chet DeVito, their eldest daughter, studied drama and tried her hand at acting at Brown University. She expressed her gratitude that her parents understood the challenges that actresses in the industry confront. Grace, the second daughter, proved she was flexible when she decided to become a camera operator in Hollywood. Jake, the youngest, began his career in Hollywood as an actor and worked in a number of film departments.
The DeVito-Perlman family’s offspring are still prosperous in the entertainment industry, and their close-knit family is still strong in spite of the demands of their public persona. Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman’s steadfast love and support for one another despite their divorce shows their commitment to one another and their common values.
