Danny DeVito: Hair Stylist/Mortician

He’s best known as the bald, diminutive character actor in films like "Twins" or the FX series "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia," but in his younger days, Danny DeVito worked as a morbid hair stylist. “They called me ‘Danny,’ but if you were going to get an article in the paper about you, they tried to pump it up a little bit and called you ‘Mr. Danny,’” DeVito said on "Lopez Tonight." “My sister, Angie, was a hairdresser and I was 18 years old, just out of high school. I wasn’t going to go to college and I needed a job, and she said, ‘Why don’t you come work for me?’” In return, she agreed to pay for his schooling. However, young DeVito wouldn’t just cut living people’s hair, he also styled the deceased. “I used to go in there to the mortuary… it was only women’s hair I did, and it was usually a really old lady, and she didn’t talk back!” DeVito joked.
