Best known for starring as characters roles in the movies such as Raging Bull (won various awards including BAFTA award for Best Newcomer, 1980), Godfellas (won various awards including Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, 1990), Lethal Weapon 4 and Home Alone, and his leading role in the movie My Cousin Vinny (won American Comedy Award for Funniest Actor in a Motion), Joe Pesci (net-worth - estimated 50 million US dollars) is regarded as one of the greatest actors of all-time. Impressively, he is compared to many famous leading actors despite being a character actor for most of the times in his arguably short-lived career.

Now moving on to his physical configuration, he is not a tall man with the height of 5 feet and 3 inches. Plus, as of 2015, his age is 72. And, judging by his recent pictures, he has lost tremendous amount of weight, as weight loss is normal in old days. Once upon a time, he was a fine actor with amazingly fit body and strong arms. Plus, he currently enjoys his full-beard and super-short hairstyle.

Talking about his relationship status, he is probably single now, but we cannot verify that. From what we have heard, he has been married and divorced for three times. He has a daughter from his third married with Claudia Haro (m.1988-1992). Anyway, his last relationship status as far as we know was getting engaged in 2007 to Angie Everhart, an American actress and former model who is now 46 years old.  Unfortunately, the couple broke up in 2008.

His last on-screen appearance was in a Snickers commercial in 2011.  

Born on February 9, 1943, in Lavallette, New jersey, U.S. to working class parents, Pesci was a talented kid even in his play age. He started starring in plays in New York by the age of five.

Before landing the role of Joe LMotta in Raging Bull in his mid 30's, he had already fulfilled many roles in his life including child actor, barber, guitarist (Jimmy Hendrix replaced him  as guitarist in Joey Dee and Starliters) and a mature actor.

Interestingly, he has been friends with singers Frankie Valli and Tommy DeVito since his childhood. Teen Joe was the one who introduced the duets to singer and songwriter Bob Gaudio. Later, then member of The Four Lovers Frankie and Tommy included Gaudio and formed The Four Seasons.  

Truly, he is one of the versatile actors the industry ever experienced. Although he will be always remembered for his classic violent, short temper roles, he has also rocked on-screen starring as many responsible and comedic roles.  

Definitely, if he wouldn't have joined the acting industry, he probably would have been a successful musician.

One can get more insights on his professional life including his rare musical career from his Wikipedia's biography.

Again, unfortunately, Joe has adopted an low-key strategy. So, we are unable to present you guys with more verifiable information on various topics about him. Also, he has zero presence in social networking sites as well.
