But what about massive objects like our Sun. Yes, the sun does distort space-time but not by very much. Astronomers have proved that by measuring the time light reaches us from distant stars. They compare the light from a star when its path is away from the Sun and then when it passes very close to it. There is a difference.
So what object distorts space-time the most. Yes the most massive, but let's start with our Sun. It does not distort the fabric of space-time very much compared to the more dense and massive objects.
The next massive and dense object on my list is the White Dwarf. Those are stars that were in the size neighborhood of our sun, but whose internal furnace went out and there was not enough force exerted from its center to the surface to keep it from collapsing. So, it went from the size of our Sun to the size of our Earth, but a lot more dense than our earth.

This third object on my list is a Neutron Star. A Neutron Star has collapsed much further than the other ones listed above that its made up of a soup of neutrons. Comparing it to our Sun would be like comparing a cannon ball to a balloon. These stars a very energetic and do at times shoot out streams of energy.

Now we come to the final (as far as I know) compaction of matter, a Black Hole. Just like stars, black holes come in many different sizes, from stellar size to massive monsters living in the center of galaxies that gobble up everything within their grasp and shoot out extremely powerful jets from their axis.
A Back Hole:
I scanned a chart that was in October 2014's Astronomy, the magazine that I always read from cover to cover. I have been getting this magazine for more years than I can remember. It was so long ago, I think the feature article was about how flat the Earth was and could we fall off the edge if we reached it. . . (grin). This chart will put my whole blog in perspective.
Now try not to get too spaced out today, but rather have a great day, you hear?
