To become a star, one doesn't need good looks or stong background. The 1.47m tall actor, Danny DeVito, proved through his acting that any individual could achieve a better fortune. And his son, Jake DeVito, is walking on the same path as his father.
Jake is best known for his work on The Better Angels, Curmudgeons, and Toms River. His mother, Rhea Perlman, is an actress and author best known for her role as head-waitress Carla Tortelli on the sitcom, Cheers.
Jake DeVito's Parents' Marital Life
Jake's father, Danny, and mother, Rhea, married on January 28, 1982. The couple first met at the play The Shrinking Bride in January 1971. Rhea's friend insisted her to watch the play, which featured DeVito. And guess what, two weeks later, the couple moved in. However, they married after 11 years of their first meeting.
The couple went on to have three kids. Their first child, a daughter named Lucy Chet DeVito, was born on March 11, 1983. Meanwhile, their second child, a son named, Grace Fan DeVito was born in March 1985. Jake was born as Jacob Daniel DeVito in October 1987.
Jake's sister explained how their parents were protective of them from the press when they were young. She also said that the concept of people coming up to them and acting starstruck for them being the kids of Danny DeVito was confusing to her, which Jake agreed to.
Jake's eldest sister, the eldest, quite outranks him in both experience and age, having had a more lucrative career in Hollywood, comparatively.
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman's Relationship
Danny and Perlman have starred alongside on several films. Everything was fine until the couple shocked everyone with the news of their separation. The longtime husband-wife duo separated in October 2012 after 30 years of marriage.
In March 2013, Danny and Perlman reconciled again, but four years later, they separated again. In an interview in 2019, Rhea revealed that she and Danny are now close friends, and she didn't intend to divorce him.
Is Jake DeVito Married?
The personal details about Jake are still hidden behind the curtains. Jake has kept all the necessary information about his love life and relationship status private.
Unlike his parents, Jake is still struggling in Hollywood as an actor and director. The 32-year-old Jake is probably more focused on his career. He might soon end up getting married. However, at present, Jake doesn't have a wife and is single.
Jake DeVito's Height: Is he short like his father?
What can be said about Danny DeVito that doesn't fall short? He has had quite a ride, and quite a bride. Since Danny's height is mostly his claim to fame, we've decided to compare and contrast the father and the son.
Danny is a well-known 4'10 inches due to a condition, which he turned to his advantage, but his son is quite a bit taller than his father. Jake DeVito is a whooping 5'3.5 inches tall, which would make the duo seem opposites in their actual relationship, had Danny not aged.
Also, the father is worth more than $60 million compared to his son's meager $1.5 million; therefore, it is of no doubt that the father is a Goliath in everything else but height, compared to his son.
