DANNY TREJO FAMOUS QUOTES

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

I think I a workaholic, but I am a workaholic who is in love with his work.

The blessing that this film business has given me is that when I walk into a school, I automatically have everyone’s attention. They want to hear what the guy from ‘Con Air’ and ‘Desperado’ has to say.

I understand the formula that producers hire directors, and directors are hired to direct, and actors are hired to act. I don’t have any conflict with any directors because I know they are the boss.

Nobody gets killed when they are happy. It always starts with an argument or debt.

Acting is just a job. I am exactly the same as the lady bringing coffee, and I have to remember that.
