Danny Trejo Height

"Everything good that's ever happened to me came out of helping others."

~ Danny Trejo

Famous actor, Danny Trejo is known for his macho roles in movies such as Heat, Con Air, Bubble Boy, and Desperado, and of course the Machete series.

Danny Trejo seems like such a big guy in his movies -- he held up pretty well against a 6-feet-4 inches tall Steven Seagal in Machete after all.

And perhaps Danny is big -- as he weighed around 200 lb (90 kg) at one time and looked pretty muscular and fearsome and all that. But what Danny isn't -- is tall.

Danny is listed as 5-feet-6 inches to 5-feet-7 inches tall on most of the websites on the internet and for a reason -- it seems.

Seeing Danny standing next to a 5-feet-2 inches tall Rey Mysterio makes us realize that Danny isn't much taller than the man who is known to be very short.

Some more height comparisons of Danny made our impression of his stature even stronger -- that he looks closer to 5-feet-6 inches than any other number.

But Danny's stature also proves that you don't really need to be that tall to look tough, manly, and alpha.

Though it seems that now close to his 80s, Danny may have lost some height with age as well.

"I'd always rather be working - and you know what? My kids would rather me be working. If I stay at home, I'll only buy another car or spend their money."
