Probably, he is not a midget, just extremely short man, who can’t see over the counter at Starbucks.

Once the star was asked in one of his interviews, what he disliked in his appearance and Danny answered “the heel of my left shoe”. Now Danny just laughs at his body shape, but in his childhood he had a lot of problems because of his diminutiveness.
