Nowadays, Danny Trejo is an iconic Hollywood actor that has appeared in several films, but when he was young, his life was taking a very different path. From 1956 to 1969 he was in prison for several crimes including armed robbery and drug dealing.

Now, we do not want to say that everyone there does the same thing as everybody else there, but in this case, Danny Trejo did the most cliche thing to do: he got a tattoo on his chest.

About that specific tattoo on his chest, there is someone else who has a very funny and incredible tale to tell and that os is Salma Hayek himself, who claims she is the one portrayed on the ink. During an interview with Graham Norton, the host asked the Mexican actress if she has ever seen a tattoo of her on someone and she revealed that yes, in fact, from someone who worked closely with her and that one is the Machete star.

The actress revealed that they both met during their first-ever movie, which happened to be Alex Rodriguez's 'From Dusk Till Dawn'. Trejo was recently out of jail and for Salma, it has her first-ever movie in Hollywood. What a reunion!

“He is an actor now but before, he was in prison for robbing banks” Salma started her tale. “And in prison, he tattooed himself a huge tattoo of a woman here,” she said, pointing at her chest.

“He learned how to act in prison and then when he got out, he started working and landed on my first movie” Salma explained. From here, the story gets as wild as it gets. The actress then adds that when Dany Trejo saw her for the first time, the actor did something really unexpected that left her speechless.


“They told me you are going to meet this prisoner but now is an actor...I was a little bit afraid” admitted Salma. “When I saw him for the first time he saw me and he ran towards me and ripped his shirt off and he said 'I knew you before I knew you, I dreamt you before I knew you”

Then, Salma Hayek describes that yes, she was looking at a portrait of hers on his chest. “There was a picture of a woman that looks exactly like me, the body was a little bit better but let's pretend,” she said while the audience laughed.


However, the interaction did not end there. Apparently, Danny Trejo told Salma Hayek that he was just out of jail and that he was happy, but that he would do whatever she asks of him. “For you, I would rob another bank.”
