How tall is Danny Trejo

Danny Trejo's Height

5ft 5 ¾ (167 cm)

American actor best known for roles in movies like Machete, Con Air, Bad Ass and Spy Kids. He's an actor who exudes a bigger presence in movies than his actual height suggests. In this convention photo Danny had a little bit more sneaker than me.

Wow I thought this dude was I big guy ,wow he's short way shorter than you rob wow
Moneymaker! said on 6/Sep/22
Maybe it's his stance, but he looks shorter than 5'5.75" Francis Capra looks taller in his picture. What's that about?
Editor Rob
In person both those guys closer to 5ft 6 than 5, although with Danny's age I think there's always a chance he had lost a 1/4 inch by then.
Bradley said on 23/Apr/22
Stood next to him at a show last week, as listed.
ChristianPerkins said on 13/Mar/22
He does have a big head for his height, not only length wise but overall surface area and volume.
Joho said on 21/Dec/21
In all movie he looks 173cm
MaskDeMasque said on 17/Jul/21
Can look anywhere in the 5'5-5'5.5 range in films. I see a good three inches with Rob above. 5'5.25 imo.
Keith 5'5 said on 13/Jun/21
Rb, how long his face lenght ? he have big head but not make him look shorter
Editor Rob
9.5 inches on a roughly 5ft 6 guy it is quite big
ALEXIZ/180cm said on 26/Mar/21
165 cm max
TheDon91 said on 14/Mar/21
around 5'5.5"
JD said on 25/Feb/21
Okay. This one moved into first place for the most surprising result on the site yet. I had absolutely no idea until I saw the thumbnail. But I never even thought about his height and came in looking for Moon Bloodgood.
Duhon said on 12/Feb/21
What would have been his peak height? He was described as 5'8", 175 lbs in 1986 on a documentary about muscle beach.
Editor Rob
5ft 6 would be the highest I'd give him....his 5ft 7 claim in shoes looks possible.
Peter 180cm said on 9/Feb/21
Nowhere near his claim.166cm tops.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Feb/21
Somewhere in high 5'5 range makes sense, but yeah, he's not a guy you'd mess with at any height, he looks the real deal, Mexican cartel sort of thing.
David duFresne said on 7/Feb/21
Just a very broad strong guy. He looks to easily physically handle Charles Bronson in one of the Death Wish sequels, Bronson has to escape by throwing a drink in his face. Bronson kept his physique into old age as well, but Trejo looked much broader. It's rare but 5'5 guys can be tough. I was in juvie years ago and this guy around 6'4 was harassing this Cuban dude who was about 5'5. Suddenly the shorter guy had enough and seemed to get the best of him in a couple of seconds. Most shorter guys are built smaller than their taller counterparts which is why you don't see this too often.
Rising174cm said on 13/Jan/21
A 5'6" peak and 5'5.5" current listing would make sense.
J2Frenzy said on 14/Nov/20
@Eric to his credit he’s closer to 5’6 than 5’5
Eric W Tam said on 11/Nov/20
No Danny you are 9'0 in the movies holy cow. Shocked me to find out he was actually short and 5'5 and not something like 6'5.
Jkiller said on 21/Oct/20
5'5.5 (166cm) spot on for this guy
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 11/Aug/20
Why was he shirtless at the convention when you met him?
Editor Rob
To show off his tattoos? To be fair, it was pretty warm in that venue too!
Slim 6'1" said on 9/Aug/20
old man now give him a peak n current
FriedChicken said on 8/Jul/20
5'5.75 or weak 5'6 peak. I think now he's 5'5 1/2
Nik Ashton said on 3/Jul/20
It’s so great that Danny is currently the top celeb on celebheights!
Yang (5 footer 8, 173, Aries) said on 20/May/20
Weak 5 ft 5 would be perfect listing for his height as of today 2020 because he mustve shrunken more heights as he aged....
BTW, Happy belated 76th Birthday to Danny!!! Btw, you dont really look 70s at all. Still looking like around 60 in my eyes Danny..
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/May/20
🎁🎂🎈🎉 Happy Birthday Danny! 🎉🎈🎂🎁

Wishing the great, fun-fuelled actor Danny Trejo a fantastic 76th Birthday!
Wasn't he fantastic in 'From Dusk Till Dawn', 'Machete' and 'Con Air'?

167cm, and that's exactly what I found for him just now via the Birthday source! Bravo Danny! He's a man who doesn't need a huge height to play a hard man!

Nik said on 8/May/20
He only looks a few inches taller than Rey Mysterio!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Oct/19
Whenever Danny's picture pops up as a Random Celeb, I get the most overwhelming urge to dig out my copy of 'From Dusk Till Dawn'!

5ft5.75 going on 6ft! He did the hard- ass role of 'Machete' full justice, proving that you don't need to be tall to play a tough guy!
Yang (5 footer 8, 173) said on 17/Oct/19
Weak 5ft 5 IMO.... never looked taller than 5ft 5 at least....
Sotiris Gravas said on 20/Jul/19
5'5" Trejo w/ 5'2" Rey Mysterio (2018)... Click Here
Tunman said on 20/Jun/19
Hmmm,would have said no more than 166 counting footwear but I assume he already lost a small fraction by 65
Bobo101 said on 12/Jun/19
That's the biggest 2 and a half inch - 3 inch difference I've ever seen.
Bobby 5ft 10 said on 26/May/19
You should add that he's been in Halloween (2007). He had a minor role of course, but he played the janitor at Smiths Grove Sanitarium who was always nice to Michael but then gets killed by him because Mike's priorities are screwed up.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/May/19
😄🎂🎈 Happy Birthday Danny! 🎈🎂😄

Wishing this power-packed favourite of mine a great Birthday with his family and friends!

Editor Rob
Yes he could have lost a cm or so, I think his peak was close to 5ft 6, today in his 70's he might be nearing 5ft 5.

@Rob here's a picture of him with 6ft nicholas cage in the 90's Click Here looks like a solid 6 inch difference to me. I don't think Trejo has seen 5'7 a day in his life.
Editor Rob
the 5ft 7 is unlikely, though in shoes that might be possible.
VelikiSrbin said on 7/Mar/19
He's 65 in the pic. Is it possible he lost some height?
Editor Rob
Yes he could have lost a cm or so, I think his peak was close to 5ft 6, today in his 70's he might be nearing 5ft 5.
World Citizen said on 24/Jan/19
Looks 165 166 at best.
Jay Scotland said on 21/Jan/19
He's not tall at all he's very wide which can fool some people into he's bigger than he is
Tunman said on 8/Jan/19
Seems that he always used to play intimidating characters.Maybe a good example of how personality could erase some realities.I mean it's really someone I've never perceived as small despite the fact that he's.To think this dude is roughly similar to Sarkozy or Hoffmann is just strange.
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Oct/18
I just saw Danny's picture come up on 'Random Celebs' and had to see if he was going topless. He is! It must have been a hot day! If women did that though, they'd be arrested! 😤

Sandy Cowell said on 14/Sep/18
I saw Danny last night in 'From Dusk Till Dawn' and he has such screen presence that any lack of height is the last thing on your mind...

The same applies in the film 'Machete', and the girls overlook his below-average height in that too. And they are beauties!

Danny gets 5ft5.75 and a round of applause for being so entertaining!👏
Sarah said on 13/Sep/18
He was cool in From Dusk Till Dawn too. Looks 167
Ali Baba said on 24/Jul/18
You’re being very generous here.
Leno179 said on 14/Jun/18
I never thought he was short ! Big surprise, these is the king of camera angles it seems.
Nik said on 24/May/18
I will offer Danny 5'5.5"!
Bobby said on 26/Apr/18
Rob, you should add he has a role on The Flash as Breacher, and that he was in Halloween as the janitor.
tree said on 15/Mar/18
Rob how much height those shoes gave him? Click Here
Editor Rob
Look pretty thick beasts, 2-2.25 inchers.
176cm guy said on 10/Mar/18
Hey Rob, This may be irrelevant. But what was he like in person to you?
Editor Rob
From what I seen that weekend, he was certainly cool with fans and seemed to be enjoying himself.
Anonim said on 24/Jan/18
Does not look more than 164cm
JJAK said on 9/Jan/18
Ok very short actor obviously sorry folks he could at times just look 5 6 or 7 clearly less than banderas who is not tall.
In his 40s he was quite fit making an imposing figure onscreen and being a boxing champ in prison no less.
Proof yet again height is not needed if you exude an alpha or even rabid vibe.
Sandy Cowell said on 6/Jan/18
When you see Danny standing at the bar in the film 'From Dusk Till Dawn', you take in that he is extremely well-built, threatening to those he doesn't like and probably just a touch below average height! However, in his 'Machete' films, you are forced to be that much more finicky because he is surrounded and adored by good-looking women, and you expect to see at least an 8 out of 10 on the looks front overall in order for him to be worthy of such success! Yet his success is about as likely as the storylines themselves! But he CAN fight, and as I have seen myself, you don't need to be tall to do that! These stories demonstrate that, but usually, a bit of youth comes in handy as well! Machete doesn't even seem to need that, making the plots comical and far-fetched!

Danny gets 5ft5.5 from me! 👹
Warren said on 4/Jan/18
I really have no idia he's that short
Ian C. said on 28/Dec/17
What? You're kidding. I thought he was a big guy. So being unusually ugly makes you seem taller?
"Bobby said on 25/Nov/17
Didn't he appear on an episode of The Flash this season as Gypsy's dad? It looks like him. Then again, he was taller than Cisco, so it can't be this guy. Weird."

And you know what ? I lately heard about things called boots. And -Breaking News !- it seems some of them have space between the foot and the sole. Ain't that weirder ?
abcd said on 29/Nov/17
dress up :) 166 cm

Rent said on 24/Oct/17
Maybe in his prime he was 5'6" but in this photos he's not below 5'5", especially if he had a fraction thicker sneakers than you Rob. His eye's level is clearly under your nose.A terrific actor BTW, I wouldn't have to deal with a gangster with a face and a presence as he has it!
Kyokushin187 said on 9/Sep/17
I always thought he was at least 5’ 11”
Editor Rob
that's interesting, it shows how a guy like Danny has a screen presence that can make people imagine him as being noticeably taller than he really is.
Slim 182 cm said on 14/Aug/17
RichardSpain said on 4/Aug/17
he seems bigger in screen. Amazing!

But next to Rob looks under 170cm

I give him 168 cm

Big Show is struggling to look anywhere near 6ft 10 there...let's say he's losing over 2 inches in posture, he must be!

an extremely solid 166
Jacob said on 25/Jun/17
Hey rob there's one celeb I don't know his true height but he's claimed 5'6 or 5'5" and half look into Gregg valentino he use to have the worlds biggest bicep would be cool to see his real height!
Marquis said on 21/Jun/17
Probably over 5'6" peak.
John Davis said on 25/May/17
Wtf? I thought he was at least 5ft 9
Bobby said on 28/Apr/17
He probably claims 5'6 in everyday life.
RisingForce said on 19/Apr/17
He looks 5'5" with Rob even with a thicker sneaker. Is that his height by age 65 and 5'5.75" peak, or did he still look nearly 5'6" in person?
Kirk said on 17/Mar/17
Danny Trejo is the real deal. He looks mean and tough, he portrays a mean and tough character, but he can not hide the fact he has a heart of pure gold. He is just a good man - and in many ways is symbolic of the USA ... a rough exterior, but kind-hearted at his core.
Borats Chicken said on 20/Jan/17
rob, was he really funny when you met him?
Editor Rob
he was certainly enthusiastic and willing to go bareback for the photoshoot...

he definitely gives off a taller impression because of his physique and looks.
Guest said on 11/Dec/16
5'6 on a good day. Dudes a legend
Aza said on 21/Nov/16
Fantastic 'handlebar moustasche'. Ombré looks 5'5.5

I love this guy! He really just doesn't give a hoot about what others think about him...he' s just having fun.... Err....he wasn't actually totally naked? Am gonna go with 5'5.5
TJE said on 28/Feb/16
Lol did he forget to bring a shirt?
S.J.H said on 21/Feb/16

dinindu said on 15/Jan/16
yo... rob you think this guy is just 1 inch is shorter than you? that's impossible. may be 2 inches seems accurate.
Editor Rob
he's a bit under 5ft 6 I think in person, nowhere near 5ft 7
Arch Stanton said on 19/Sep/15
Definitely one of the most badass guys in Hollywood because he's the real deal. He really was one bad egg in his younger years. Short, but for a Mexican American of his generation probably average height.
bernie said on 7/Sep/15
@ nWo: Who the hell told you Tom Araya is 6'2"..???? He's in the 5'8"-5'9" range...
Best joke i've heard for long...
Danny Trejo seems no more than 166cm in the pic with Rob....
nWo said on 28/Aug/15
I have seen pictures of him where he is a little shorter than Tom Araya of Slayer who is 6'2", and one picture where he is even taller. That can't be due to camera angle, so I'm guessing he was standing on a box!!!
Emily said on 1/Aug/15
he is the coolest actor in the world) his height. .... It doesn't matter
Dmax said on 14/Apr/15
You say he have a fraction thicker sneaker than you but yet looks 3 inches shorter....intriguing
Arch Stanton said on 25/Feb/15
He looked quite a bit shorter than Gary Sinise in Reindeer Games so has to be about this. He was rocking the Seagal ponytail too haha! Yeah he's one of those bad ass guys you don't dwell on his height with, in our minds he's an imposing guy.

Rob, you add the Jaime camil mexican actor, I think it lie hieght
cd said on 29/Sep/14
Looks about 5ft 5.25 or 5ft 5.5 with Rob. I'm judging this mostly on Rob's photo with Marshall Allman who is a 5.25 guy. They look about the same. However, I do agree with a near 5ft 6 peak.
Dmeyer said on 30/Jul/14
Mel looks 9cm taller so about 175-6cm and has boots so about 174cm
Dmeyer said on 30/Jul/14
Rob how Côme gibson looks same as you near Danny or max 1cm taller
Editor Rob
in some photos he might, in others I think he can look a 5ft 9 and change guy with danny
Dmeyer said on 30/Jul/14
5'6 peak 5'5.5 now
TJE said on 24/Jul/14
2.5 inch difference with Rob. Yep he's 167. How tall could he have been in his prime, Rob?
Editor Rob
I think his peak is this listing, he had a fraction more footwear that day so I can see him having dropped maybe a fraction, but not like an inch...20 years ago he didn't look much different
Adamz said on 18/Jul/14
Realist, where do you live that sub 173 is talker than 95%?
"Felix B" said on 11/Jul/14
I like Danny Trejo as an Actor and a humanitarian and I believe despite the missteps he's encountered in his earlier life. Danny can how turn-around and look back on how far he's come...and SMILE!!! My brother praise and love your Savior, and mine keeping His Word everyday as you Promised Him you would, Danny! Peace be unto You and your family, my Peace I give to You!!!
Astaroth said on 2/Jul/14
Billed 5'11" in Machete - well not himself, the nominal character. He does look shorter than that, even in those big military boots he is seen wearing most of the time.
Funny how 5'11" is considered average-short in American movies...
Concerned said on 27/Apr/14
5'6-ish isn't exactly surprising him for him. Latino Americans are on average 5'7-ish, and Trejo's pretty old now.
Alucard said on 30/Mar/14
This is another proof of how camera tricks, magic shoes and movies are able to make actors and celebrities look much taller than they really are... He always "looked" average, above average in movies, lol...
Mick said on 30/Jan/14
Seriously he always looked tall I'm shocked by this lol
I always thought he was around the five ten mark
He looks big in movies lol
the shredder said on 3/Dec/13
Rob is he stand correct with you ? Btw Mel Gibson towers him.
Editor Rob
he's pretty much not that different to how he looks in this photo and how he appears in size up close.

he is also 65 yrs old in that pic. Bio says he is 5 ft 7 in. he is 69 yrs old now...
richkid123 said on 13/Nov/13
i see him in LA every now and then. He is slightly short. This height seems right
Hola said on 9/Nov/13
Pretty good example of how a 5'6 man can avoid being dwarfed by having mass. And boy does this guy have mass.
romanspqr said on 9/Oct/13
He looks 5'6-ish next to you. Maybe 5'10 without the shirt. Lol.
dicksock said on 29/Aug/13
He looks 5'5" next to Rob.
Jonathan said on 17/Jul/13
Leaning in on Jenny, he looks like he could be 5'6", even with the slight footwear edge.

I'd just give it to him.
SolidSnake said on 19/May/13
wtf lol In Machete his file says 5'11'', 210 lbs in one scene then in another scene with a mugshot where he looks 5'9'' says 6'4'', 200 lbs!
Gaz said on 28/Apr/13
I would say his 5'5.5'' - 5ft 5.75in range
Editor Rob
please keep the 1 name thanks ;)
Joe257 said on 23/Jan/13
Was it optional for him to wear a shirt? LoL!
Editor Rob
well it worked, I'm sure he sold a few more photo tickets on the sunday!
VV said on 22/Jan/13
Wow no idea that he was that short! Whenever I see him in movies I think he is 5'10 or so. Hes still a badass though.
6ft under and over said on 15/Jan/13
hey rob do you think this guy needs a downgrade to 5ft5 flat, hes lookin shorter then usally in his movies lately
Editor Rob
he could be heading towards 5ft 5 next few years

I would say 5ft5 flat now and days and mabye 5ft6.5 in his hay day.
johnnyfive said on 10/Sep/12
Love this guy, super Mexican badass! He looks 5'5 with you and Jenny especially with his footwear advantage. He looks various heights in Robert Rodriguez films, usually taller like in Once Upon A Time In Mexico they make him look taller than 5'9 Johnny Depp! The magic of cinema I tell you, but that badassery is ALL Danny, that ain't no Hollywood magic!
Editor Rob
he's done well in late 60's, not short of work when most men would be winding down their careers.
thorterr said on 23/Aug/12
how did u find danny? and why didnt you go topless to rob?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't want to scare the ladies away by going topless :) Danny was in good form with people, even jenny decided that day to buy a pic the following day with him.

5'5.5" today. Maybe 5'7" in his youth.

rob how much do u think danny trejo weighs? and is it posible he's 5 foot 7?

nah man, he never looked that tall...weight? Maybe 200 pounds.
tom said on 9/Jun/12
still a cool guy,big on the inside type actor.
Silent d said on 5/Feb/12
I thought he was 5 foot 7. He did look tall in predators. The above photo shocked me how short he is. 166cm is probably more accurate. Sorry nat wu i don't think he is 5 foot 3.5. That is outrageous. Are you saying that he is the same height as johansson. I don't believe it.
Cranberries said on 24/Jan/12
@goal height: The average man's wingspan is 3 inches greater than his height. "Huge wingspan" is 5 or more.

He does seem to have very broad shoulders. Small, but tough and strong as nails. Pretty fat though; looks like he eats lots of menudo.
goal height 6 foot said on 4/Jan/12
huge wing span for his height, his wingspan is at least 5'9" 5'10"
Nat-Wu said on 20/Dec/11
Sorry man, but yes. Maybe I can't convince you all, but I know how tall my friend is, and I know Danny Trejo is shorter than him. It's not guesswork.
Nat-Wu said on 18/Dec/11
It is not an aspersion on his character that he is short. He is awesome regardless of his height. That being said, my friends and I met him at Wizard World in Arlington, TX 2008, and he is below 5' 5". I know that for a fact. I have a friend measured at 5'5 1/2". Danny Trejo is shorter than him. Maybe 5' 3", maybe 5' 3 1/2". Absolutely certain. Sorry I don't have a pic of them side by side, but this is fact.
Editor Rob
if he was that short he'd have to have worn lifts that weekend I saw him, which I doubt.
pete said on 11/Dec/11
Robert Rodriguez is a magician.. he can make Mr. Trejo look like a 6 feet tall Mexican Action Hero who is dancing with his Machete. great actor
Tom101 said on 5/Nov/11
legend!!! he could be 4'5" and still be cool.
peter said on 2/Nov/11

Note that his Character is listed at 5'11...not Trejo himself.

Rob I see a solid 3 inch difference between you, and you say he had footwear advantage so how can he be just under 5'6? Looks 5'5 possibly a tad under

Editor Rob
he could be 5ft 5.5 today

He's 5 ft 6 tops. But he's built very strong, big bones and tough build.

Watched Machete last night. Decent movie not great, listed at 5'11 lmao. Danny suprisingly did well carrying a movie though.

Yeah I thought he was a lot taller. In Con Air, first I thought he was short, bout 5'6, then when he was shirtless I was like crap, this guy must be pretty big, thought he was 5'10

Met him today at a Scifi convention in Stockholm, he is 170 cm(5 feet 7) and pretty wide.
Captain Spaulding said on 18/Sep/08
Hes 5'6" not 5'5".
Joey said on 16/Sep/08
I've met him twice. He is no taller than 5'5" MAX. I was shocked at how short he is.
Balto said on 12/Jul/08
Wow, I actually had him pegged much TALLER than this.I guess his muscular build fooled me - he so darn wide I think it gives the impression he's a lot bigger (overall) than he really is.I think it's safe to say this is 1 guy none of us would mess with - I mean he was in some of the hardest prisons in the US and actually became LW and WelterW boxing champion there.One tough dude and definately not to be trifled with.

Listing is accurate. He's 5'6" my 5'7" friend met him and was exactly an inch taller.
Anonymous KinG said on 28/Apr/08

I met him a couple times and he was way shorter than me. I am 5'6" he might be 5'4"

Hey guys I used to live in the valley right near this guy and have bumped into him twice, one of the times LITERALLY bump into him. I'm 5 ft 6 and i distinctively remember he was at least 2 or 3 inches taller than me.
Travis said on 7/Jan/08
I live in LA and a couple of years ago I saw him in a restaurant in the valley. He was at the cash register ordering food about 10 feet in front of me. I'm 5'7.75 and he looked to be around the same height, maybe a little shorter.

5'6'' to 5'7'' at most, that's how tall he appeared to be in Heat.
AshnarLynx said on 7/Oct/07
He was described as about 5'10 on an episode of X-Files. He is pretty buff so he can look taller than he is. Still I think he's got to be at least 5'8.

with pierce brosnan

it looks like at least 5ft7
Doy said on 14/Jan/07
Had the pleasure of working with him on Point Blank and Walker. If he was as tall as his personality and talent he would be 10 feet.
G-unit said on 30/Dec/06
you kidding? I always thougt he was 5'7½ MINIMUM
Antonio said on 23/Dec/06
I saw him a year ago, he passed right by me, I'm 176 cm, so I would say he is about 165, very short.
Lmeister said on 21/Dec/06
This dude is really built that might be one reason why he looks shortish. Built + short legs = looks shorter. 5'7''/195 pounds...
Boxing Fighter said on 20/Dec/06
I agree shredder. He looked 5ft8-5ft9 in desperado, but in triple X he looked 5ft4!!!! Vin diesel is a lot bigger than Banderas.
But 5ft6.25 for danny is ok.
the shredder said on 20/Dec/06
I always thought he was about 5'4 . the 5'7 -5'9 listings are Down-Sydrome !
Elio said on 19/Dec/06
Didn't this guy used to box professionally? Maybe there's some stats somewhere?
AA said on 19/Dec/06
I never thought he was that short... he's more like 5-7, 5-8...
Lmeister said on 19/Dec/06
He looks a bit taller than 5'6''. He is usually listed 5'9'', but looks 5'7''-5'8'' range.
Anonymous said on 18/Dec/06

Anonymous said on 18/Dec/06
Is he really that short? I always thought he was about medium height (5'8"ish).
Anthony said on 17/Dec/06
Looks about right. The exact same height as me. Great actor, too.
