Does Danny DeVito have dwarfism, or is he just small?

Asked by ragingloli (45959points) 1 week ago

Is he more of a Verne Troyer, or more of a Napoleon Bonaparte?

He and Steve Martin got small back in the ‘70s. DeVito kept getting small though while Martin got help.

We are all just tall.

Neither. He is short, but not small.

According to Danny, he’s 4 ft 11–¾ inches short. I think dwarf’s maximum height is 4 ft 8 inches, so Danny is small in stature and fluffy around. I find him so funny that I don’t notice and it really doesn’t matter as he’s very talented and a giant at what he does

Napoleon was actually above average height at the time, so him being really short is just a misconception. Danny DeVito is just really short.

He has no neck to speak of, so I can only assume he used to be Betty Boop before his transition.

His growth was stunted by his previous employment. The fumes from all the hair care products caused his shortedness.

I always think of him as just short. He fairly in proportion, although you can have a type of dwarfism and be in proportion. I think it’s 4’10” or shorter to technically be a dwarf, so if he’s 4’11” he’s just short technically. Although, interestingly, I think the cut off is the same for men and women. I wonder if I’m remembering that right?
