How Danny DeVito Achieved a Net Worth of $80 Million

Presently Danny DeVito is less prominent than in the past, which to be fair, should be interpreted while remembering that he is in his 70s.  Although some may argue his work on Always Sunny is his best in years.  Even still, it’s natural for him to have slowed down to some extent.   But not forgetting his incredible contributions as an actor and director over the last 40 years, Danny DeVito’s net worth continues to rise, as shown by the latest estimates suggesting that he is worth $80 million in total.

How Did Danny DeVito Reach His Current Net Worth?

It seems probable that DeVito earned most of that $80 million because of his long, storied career as an actor in Hollywood, which started up in 1970 and has continued to the present time. For those who are curious, DeVito started out playing the role of a thug in Dreams of Glass, which tends to be remembered more for the fact that it was his first movie than whatever merit it may or may not have possessed. From that point on, DeVito went on to play more and more roles in more and more movies, which in time, resulted in him playing roles in TV shows as well. Eventually, DeVito had important parts in such a remarkable number of famous movies that there could be no doubt about the fact that he was one of the most prominent actors in Hollywood in his hey-day, as shown by examples that include but are by no means limited to Batman Returns, Matilda, and L.A. Confidential. Even now, he plays a part in the TV show called It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which has been running since 2006.

On top of this, it should be mentioned that DeVito went into voice work as well. For example, he had a part in the My Little Pony movie from the 1980s, which is in addition to important parts in Space Jam, Hercules, and The Lorax. As a result, it is no wonder that a significant number of fans signed a petition for him to play the titular part in Detective Pikachu, which DeVito eventually declined to audition for because he wasn’t familiar with the Pokemon franchise. Still, that doesn’t mean that DeVito is no longer involved with voice acting, seeing as how he has parts in both Smallfoot and The One and Only Ivan, which are set for release in 2018 and 2019.

Speaking of which, it should be mentioned that DeVito has done some directing as well as some producing as well over the course of his career. For example, he was the director as well as one of the producers for Matilda, which saw him starring alongside his wife Rhea Perlman. However, it should be noted that DeVito’s last directorial role was in 2005, while his last producer role as in 2014, meaning that those have been nowhere near as important as his acting has been towards the building up of his net worth.

Finally, it seems probable that some of DeVito’s net worth has come from other sources as well. For example, there is no indication that DeVito has an interest in running businesses, but it seems probable that he has invested some of his earnings from his acting career for various reasons, which presumably, have resulted in some earnings over time. Likewise, DeVito has shown up in numerous commercials for numerous companies, not least because his unmistakable appearance makes him very recognizable to people who see them. Based on that, it seems safe to say that some of DeVito’s net worth has come from his endorsements as well.

Considering this information, it seems probable that DeVito’s net worth will continue to rise for the foreseeable future. After all, he remains active in a number of projects at this point in time, meaning that he will continue to collect earnings for his roles in those movies and TV shows. However, unless something very unexpected happens, it is very unlikely that DeVito’s net worth will see either an explosive increase or a precipitous decrease. After all, his career has long since reached the mature stage, while he himself hasn’t shown indications of wasteful spending habits that could lead to something like that.
