What happened to Danny Pintauro?
What happened to Danny Pintauro, the actor who acted kid Jonathan Boyer in the Who’s The Boss series? In recent years, very damning news has come to us from Los Angeles. Here is an update on the new life of Danny John Pintauro.
After Who’s The Boss?
He was acclaimed by the media and the viewers. He was so cute on screen with his little blonde head! The little brother of Alyssa Milano has in any case taken advantage from his youth, from the 196 episodes of the famous series as well as three roles in other television series and three feature films. Starting from nothing, his growth in the world of cinema and television was dazzling.
This series ended on April 25, 1992. He then received an award and then nothing. Danny left our American screens to return only 14 years later. He, who was promised a good acting career, preferred to take up a normal school curriculum by joining the University of Stanford from 1994 to 1998. He graduated with a degree in Art. The following year, he set up a theatrical play. Unfortunately, it did not meet the expected success. On each side of the stage, the work is really different. It is a shame that he has been destabilized because of so little. He could have made a lovely career but preferred to leave the stages.
In 2006, The Still Life, the fortieth and final feature in his filmography, was released. However, he does not play a very important role. He is not very noticeable on the screen. The same happened in 2010 where he is registered to the casting of two television series but only for one episode each. It is clear that cinema always interests him and that he has kept good friends. It looks like he’s visiting them from time to time. He comes and leaves the stage. Does he know he’s being filmed? J
A private life for the general public
Although he has traded his costumes for his Sandford diploma, he keeps a faithful public, a nostalgic public of his childhood years: the 90s. He remains engraved in our hearts for a long time. Let us remember his coming out in 1997. He came back in the press with the announcement of his marriage with Will Tabares recently.
On the other hand, Danny carried a heavy secret. Since 2003, an accident appears in his life. He was declared positive to HIV. Sensitive and not knowing how to disclose it publicly, he would be be silent for 12 years. In 2015, he told Oprah Winfrey: “I have been HIV positive for 12 years. You know this is not something people talk about, seriously.” In the same interview, he said he was addicted to methamphetamines in the same period.

The official announcement of his illness has upset Alyssa Milano, her gambling partner in “Who’s the Boss?” The young Samantha burst into tears. She had not seen him for a very long time. Indeed, the two actors had lost contact because social networks did not exist at the time. However, one can have doubts about her willingness to contact him because Tony Danza and Judith Light have kept in touch with Danny for all these years, without social networks. Besides, the latter supports him for his fight against the disease. And she says: “It gives a completely different face to a disease that we still cannot contain.”
Danny Pintauro is now an example for everyone. Like Macaulay Culkin, he could not control himself: drugs, sex, a dark mixture that must absolutely be abstained. Now he warns us against all of it. Fortunately for him, he is not as affected as his colleague of Home Alone.
