How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Arnold Schwarzenegger's height is 5ft 11.5in (182 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1.5in (187 cm)
Austrian actor, bodybuilder and politician best known for starring in movies such as The Terminator, Predator, True Lies and Total Recall. He says of his stature, "I'm 6'2". I've heard rumors that I'm really much shorter in real life - like 5'6" or something like that - which is ridiculous. I can assure you this is not the case. People look up to me, and not just because I do a lot of work in the community. I mean, most people really LOOK UP to me."

Many people who have met him in his early career have said he was between 6ft 1 and 2, although a genuine 6ft 3 man like Kevin Sorbo thought differently, saying with a straight face: "Arnold Schwarzenegger's about 5-11...yeah he says he's Six Three". Jon Meade said Arnie told him in a 1980 interview he was "6ft 1.5" and bodybuilder Vince Basille gave an insight into a young Arnie's height in an email to me, in which he described how he personally measured Arnie in 1969 at 6ft 1.5. Arnold has also recently said that he was "6ft 1 and 3/4" but now has shrunk to 6ft 1, as measured by his daughter and in 2013 mentioned he was down to a worrying 6ft 1/2 inch.

He looks the same height with his son, Patrick, who is listed 184cm. here.

You need to learn about camera angles!! The angle of that photo gives Arnie a good 2cm I'd say.

Here's a good, and very fair comparison with 5'9" Frank Zane and 5'6" Dickerson for that matter.
Click Here
Zane's head is at a perfect straight across level, and he's standing with excellent posture. Nonetheless his eye level falls well below Arnold's mouth, which suggests a minimum 4 inches difference. Arnold is also standing very well, and his head is also in a good position if a slight bit casual. Arnold looks minimum 6'1" there next to 5'9" Frank Zane as is directly measured in the photo, but possibly 6'1.5" standing identically.

Very interesting photo of Arnold between 6'3 Will Ferrell and 5'2 Kevin Hart.

If Will is really 6'3, I'd say Arnold is still a legit 6'0.

Well @Lucio it appears Arnold was never over 185 during his peak, but by the same token, never under 184. Still a pretty drastic loss by any stretch of the imagination. No amount of money and power can buy height back - it's free, good posture, simple stretches, alexander walking technique etc.
Lucio says on 25/Feb/15
@6ftMagician,

Yes i do. Being a full 6'1", at least judging by countless pictures, a height loss of 3-4 cm from peak, is not something so strange.

Arnie was a six footer, but now probably about 5'10. All those years of training have definitely effected his height which is not surprising, I mean look' he trained so hard it made his arms longer.

Affected his height, not effected and no, he wasn't just 6'0". He was over 6'1". Today, he's under 5'11". By how much? It's hard to say.

"All those years of training have definitely effected his height"

Not just training but steroids. Their side effects are height lost. Many people seem to think that arnie only took the stuff during his bodybuilding days but it is pretty obvious that the used through out most of his film career.

You are correct. Steroids contribute to deterioration of the bones and joints. Most steroids users need to have hip replacements (Lou Ferrigno, Arnold, Jesse Ventura, Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Superstar Billy Graham), but in addition to that, joints become compressed and in many cases actually FUSE together. This can be seen in again guys like Hogan and Billy Graham. Steroids enhance muscles in the short-term, but in the long-term, they destroy the skeletal structure, which is what's happening to Arnold (pre-maturely).
6ftMagician says on 24/Feb/15
@Lucio

Nice evidence, Arnie looks 184 there too, maybe 6'1''. I think this explains his height loss, it's not as crazy as thought.
Hypado says on 24/Feb/15
I think 5ft 11.75in , 182,3cm is spot on for Schwarzenegger today, in 2015.

For me judging by BAREFOOT pictures of Arnold as a man during his bodybuilding days it is a forgone conclusion. Arnold was not a centimeter over 184. This perhaps is why he claimed 187, which he was likely close to in shoes.

I am not a conspiracy voodoo either, show me reasoned, logical evidence and I'll change my mind. Till then, next to Serge and Frank, Arnie is looking a legit 6 footer, but nothing more.
-----------------

Yeah, legit six footer, right! lol.
Full 185 cm, also Arnie has his head tilted in the second photo.
Do you see that there are 5 cm of difference?

I don't claim to know anything about how tall Arnold is or was. But, his daughter's measring him means little to me, because people can vary in height up to an inch throughout the day. I will state, however, that...and I have no scientific evidence, I don't know how the soft material between one's vertebrae can hold up, year after year, when you're lifting heavy weights via squats, curls, overhead presses, lateral raises and seated or standing triceps extensions. It seems to me that years of that "has" to break down your discs and whatever else, to some degree.

Not to sound like a broken record, but there are barefoot shots of Arnold with Frank Zane, who claims/ is claimed to stand 5'9''. Arnold looks 183cm there on the dot. This is during his youth when he was fully grown man competing in bodybuilding.

Frank has claimed 5'9.5" having been his youth height.
joelj says on 21/Feb/15
This guy was pretty tall in his younger years. 5' 10 is ridiculous more or less 6 ' 2 in his prime no doubt about it, in commando he was wearing trainers 6' 4.5" bill duke wasnt that much taller it didnt look like 2.5 inches anyway. And bill duke is the most honest 6' 4.5 you could get.

Nice find. Arnie looks a solid 183cm there, considering he is closer to the camera too.

No less than 6ft1(187cm).

Jimmy Fallon is a famous lift wearer, that's why he looks as tall as Arnie in the clip.
Look at what kind of heel he wearing normally.
Click Here
And these are normal heels? lol. There are at least 4 cm heel.
He looks 6 feet there with Arnie due of lifts, so Arnie can not be less than 6 feet there with Fallon. Simple syllogism.

He was at least 6' 1, however he certainly isn't anymore.
kev says on 17/Feb/15
I actually think he was a weak 6' 2 peak, although I dont know whats happened since then. When he stands beside 6' 5 lou ferrigno although noticeable there really isn't a huge noticeable difference
Harold says on 17/Feb/15
Yes, MJKoP, certainly one 'cannot successfully argue against that cold, hard fact' that Arnold was six foot two, peak, because, after all, the bodybuilding magazines that promoted him said he was. And they also said the best bodybuilders in the world don't take steroids. They said it, so you can't argue against that cold, hard fact. And that their contests were drug free. Yes, you can't argue against that fact. When you want the truth, the first thing you do is ask a bodybuilder. That's a cold, hard fact. Because bodybuilders keep it real. That's a cold, hard fact.
grizz says on 17/Feb/15
@MJKoP, what cold, hard fact? 2+2=4 is a cold,hard fact, not this. He was lucky to be 6'1,75 out of bed.

Alright, so I just got done watching Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary special from Sunday night. Shocking to see how much height MANY of the guys have lost (Tom Hanks, Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, etc), BUT, I paid closest attention to the sketch of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timeberlake. Justin was a little taller than Jimmy and Justin is MAX 6'0", making Jimmy look closer to 5'11". We all know how Arnold stacked up to Jimmy recently. NO WAY is Arnold 5'11.5" today.
MJKoP says on 16/Feb/15
At least six foot two inches barefoot during his prime years. You CANNOT successfully argue against that cold, hard fact.
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" says on 16/Feb/15
@Steve While I do think that Arnold is taller than what he is listed at, Arnold's head is tilted up, with Obama's being tilted down. There's also uneven hair in that photo.

He's probably lost a lot of height, but he's always looked atleast 6 foot (or very close) in his movies. The listing is correct.
Jameson 185cm says on 15/Feb/15
Looked a full 188cm in the original Terminator films. Age has seen to a couple of cms at this point though - 6'/182-184cm seems likely. His arms look a little disproportionate to his torso and legs now.
uh oh says on 15/Feb/15
Not to mention that Arnold's bodybuilding career ended in 1980, he was still very young and fit, so it's impossible for him to have "shrunk" his back from squats, when he was still his peak height when he retired in 1980, use logic, Arnold wasn't Squatting over 400 after 1980, there was no reason for it.
uh oh says on 15/Feb/15
I still lift but not like when I was playing sports in high school and college, I played rugby 2 years in college. I've know plenty of older lifters, even some who use gear. None of them ever had back issues.
Dingus says on 14/Feb/15
For those arguing that Arnold was significantly below 6'02.00" because he appears smaller than Bush the Elder, here is George H. W. Bush with his 6'03.00" son, Jeb. He appears slightly taller in the photo. Could Bush the Elder be closer to 6'03.00" than previously thought?

Click Here
Dingus says on 14/Feb/15
Peak Height: 6'01.50"
After a full day, possibly 6'01.75" out of bed. I believe he started losing height as early as his late 30's witch might explain people remembering him as tall and the older pictures indicating him as having a taller stature. But as time goes on he appears to get smaller. For example with Bush the Elder he appears about an inch shorter.
Current: 5'11.75".

I'm nearly 30 and I've lifted weights consistently from ages 15-20, and 22-24, squatting at my best 405. And I can tell you that squats affect height or make you shorter. In fact it will make you taller because the firmer your back is, the more erect your posture will be.

So you lifted seriously for 2 years in your twenties do you really think thats comparible to the effects felt by someone like arnold who has lifted almost constantly for 50 years
grizz says on 13/Feb/15
@uhoh,I'm confused by your post-squatting makes you taller or shorter?

I can't look anymore at this PR photo taken from a bird perspective. It makes him look 5ft6
uhoh says on 13/Feb/15
I meant to say Squats do not affect your height. You could have to herniate your discs for that to happen.
5ft10guy says on 12/Feb/15
I think peak height is 6ft.05 he's a 6 footer though.

That sounds more realistic, yet its too much for him.
He looks more like 182/180 morning/evening tody.
BTW why photo with so bad angle are represented here? We cant estimate Arnolds height any closely by it. Wouldnt it be better to post a pic with him nd Sly for example

Just because: Arnold, in that photo, is squatting 405. That's not heavy, for anyone who spends their life training with weights.

Are you really this stupid?
grizz says on 10/Feb/15
In 1st Steve's photo Bush Sr. clearly had an inch on young Arnold. Can't see their footwear,but I doubt that a legit 6ft2 guy would carry lifts.
Arnie 6ft0.75-6ff1 peak -nothing above that number, no way.
6ftMagician says on 10/Feb/15
This debate should have long been settled using logic. Instead it rages on, so be it, I'll just claim 185cm. 99% wouldn't bat an eyelid.
James says on 10/Feb/15
In the photos with Bush, we are not seeing footwear. Arnold, clearly, is shorter, but we can't really estimate how much without seeing what both men are wearing beneath the knees. But, obviously, six feet two or six one point five is out of the question for Arnold. The fact that he believed in fiction doesn't make it fact.

James says on 9/Feb/15
Just because: Arnold, in that photo, is squatting 405. That's not heavy, for anyone who spends their life training with weights. That's relatively moderate. If Arnold had lifted heavier, perhaps he would have matched his lower body to his upper body. As to his height, take a gander sometime of him standing next to his daughter, Christina. Given she towers over him, either he's way sub six foot or she's six three or four. Do you know the Pinocchio Effect? Each time he lies, his nose grows. The Arnold Effect is similar: each time he lies, his bank account grows. They're was more money in pretending to be above average in height when, in fact, he never was. Follow the money.
Steve says on 9/Feb/15
James, there are loads of photos of Arnie with Bush plus a video. He's considerably shorter in all of them.
184.3cm says on 9/Feb/15
Quite right James, however i doubt he was standing on a box :) Ive seen that movie a hundred times, they are both wearing boots with small heel. Nielsen at 6' puts Arnie at 6'1 peak. Maybe fractions over or under but he certainly wasn't 6 flat or 6 foot 2 . After searching pics of a young Arnie im convinced that he was 6'0.75-6'1.25 peak. That was his range in his youth.
Now lets have some more pics from low camera angle.
James says on 8/Feb/15
184.3cm: as usual, with the Arnie photo, one can't see below the knees, so one can't judge footwear, or, for that matter, height by that photo. How convenient - for Arnie.
Steve says on 8/Feb/15

He's lost even more height in the last 5 years. You'd have a good 2" on him today.

Hi guys, I found fantastic barefoot shots which is pretty compelling evidence that Arnie was 183cm during his peak. However, Arnie does not look the full 6'1'' with a 5'9'' Frank Zane.

------
I posted the barefoot shot with Zane months ago. I think its a good marker. I would say only 3.75 difference making Arnold 6ft0.75 / 184cm. Peak.

James says on 5/Feb/15
Mark-Paul Gosselaar has Jimmy Fallon by one inch. Fallon has Arnold by one inch. Which means if Gosselaar is five eleven, then Fallon is Five ten. Which means if Fallon is five ten, Arnold is....FIVE NINE. The Hollywood farce continues!
James says on 5/Feb/15
[Editor Rob: height is of course of interest.

People get their height measured, they get asked their height, they observe people of different heights and notice how tall people are...no parent wants their kid to 'grow up to be small and weak', it's always 'big and strong'.

I must be odd because I'd choose the small and weak Bill Gates (who, without open hear surgery is much healthier than Arnie) over the 'big and strong' Arnie. Never confuse the parsley, which is the decoration on top of the steak, for the steak.

Fallon had clear height on Arnold from the clip I saw. At least an inch.

I think that is the only thing we have ever agreed on over the years.

I know it bothers you, but the clip is the clearest proof that if in good posture Arnold is also a bit taller than Fallon, and in the famous kitchen video, there is obviously something wrong.
Not only don't you believe your eyes, but don't know even estimate what you see.
Arnie is tall as much as Fallon in the clip, if not more.

Get an eye exam if you can not see it.
Arnie is still 6ft if in good posture.

yes but Jimmy Fallon's shoes and Arnold Schwarzenegger's shoes are they similar?Jimmy Fallon seem have often advantageous shoes.

looks around 3cm, if the measurment is legit 511.5" looks spot on, although I think the player could stretch a bit more out posturewise.

Peak height is accurate but I think 5'11.75" is his current height. Saw him on Fallon and if Fallon is 5'11.5"Arnold should be taller because he seemed to be and Fallon wears shoes that ass a lot of height.

Arnold were officialy measured in guiness world of records in the 70s at 185 cm (6.1) His own words is 186 cm during running man, probably morning height. He rounded up to 6.2 for hollywood and that is his height in shoes. Today he is 181-182 cm. 10 years ago he was 6 feet with tony blair and bush.

I think this is as close to truth there is after been on this site for years and studied 1000+ pics, all his movies and been his biggest fan since i was 15 yeas old i the 90s.
grizz says on 2/Feb/15
Dmeyer, Fallon is a bit slouched in that photo,while Arnie has the perfect posture. If Fallon stood straight, they'd be in eye-to-eye level. Take into consideration that Terminator wears some massive boots, so I think that Fallon may be the one who's slighlty (1cm tops) talller.
So, 181-182 cm for Arnold IMO.

I came to this site because I saw Arnold on the Tonight Show standing next to Jimmy Fallon, today, 2-1-15. Jimmy looked at least an inch taller. So I looked up Jimmy's height and expected it to be 6'3", since I had read earlier that Arnold was 6'2", but Jimmy is listed as 6 feet even. So maybe Arnold really is in the area of 5'10" or 5'11".

However, Arnie does not look the full 6'1'' with a 5'9'' Frank Zane.

In 6ftMagician's first pic, Arnold looks a strong 6ft 1 to me. He had long limbs - his arms look very long in that pic!
6ftMagician says on 1/Feb/15
Rob, if you seen the links I posted below it is impossible to disputethat Arnie was over 183 at peak. I mean, thos are fantastic pictures of Arnold with Zane, both barefoot. If we accept Zane's claim of 5'9'', then Arnie really does struggle to look anything over 6ft. Right, anyone?
Connor6ft says on 1/Feb/15
@6ftMagician yeah that's a solid 3 inches between Arnie and Frank there, im starting to believe that the 6ft 1.75 peak is BS 183-184cm peak is closer to the truth, he's probably 180-180.5cm today.
Levon says on 30/Jan/15
DaFrunk, you're giving him a solid 6'0" because that's what you want him to be. All evidence (comparison photographs) points to him being five ten or eleven max. Unless Jimmy Fallon suddenly sprouted to six foot two...

@6ftMagician your statements on the deception that goes on in the muscle industry is accurate. Most, if not all, fitness models and people who "sell" their bodies are on PEDs so it is all BS that they try to screw with ignorant people via supplements. Oh and Arnold being natural? HELL no. Arnold was definitely on steroids. Three Reasons:
1.) He was 6'1.5" (idk if he actually was this tall in the '70s but let's assume he was), 235 lbs. at 6% Bodyfat in contest mode. A natural human being at that height will not weigh more than 200-205 lbs. at such low BF% and mind you this 200 lbs. is only for genetically gifted individuals like TOP TIER genetics and training.

2.) Arnold competed with guys who used steroids. All those bodybuilders from the '70s used steroids (granted back then the quality of steroids was more pure and easily available so which is why those guys don't look like monstrosities). Frank Zane, Serge Nubret, they all used steroids and other drugs. Why would Arnold not use steroids when they give him such a big edge?

3.) Arnold himself has ADMITTED to using steroids multiple times. There are several interviews and stuff where he clearly states that he used steroids.

Here's video proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebRglq-CPsY
Oh and after the first 35 seconds he's embellishing the truth. Bodybuilding competitions don't actually do drug tests (how else would a 5'11" 300 pound muscle monster like Ronnie Coleman compete if steroid users were banned?).

So basically my point is: Arnold Schwarzenegger was NOT natural and without the help of steroids you'll not even get close to looking as good as he did. Then again judging by Arnold's condition nowadays (he's lost 2 inches already and he's not even 70 yet) it's better just to remain healthy.

IMO today he does look anything between 5'11" and 5'11.5"...I wouldn't be surprised if he will measured 5'11", because he usually wears lifts.
Regarding his peak height I think anything under 6'1" is not reliable! 6'1.25-1.5" is possible because you need to consider he probably took a lot of substances to make bigger his muscles and I have heard time ago that those substances can amplify you height loss during age, so it may be he did lost a bit more that a man of his age (like 2")...

@Rampage (and everyone on this forum this may be of service to you)

The analogy I was trying to draw with cycling was that even in sports where you would not expect to see PED use, such as enduracne cycling, you still see it. What makes anyone think athletes wouldn't use PEDS in sports where PEDS would be an obvious advantage (I've cited 6/7 fastest men in 100m history caught using PEDS). PED use is de-facto allowed in competitive or 'pro' bodbuilding and untested in 'natural'/ametuer competitions.

It is well known in the fitness industry that Simeon Panda has taken PEDS - he cannot admit it because he would lose his income (supplement sponsorship). It is not possible to reach that size naturally unless you are already muscular to begin with and have the perfect variables like I mentioned before (diet, training fequency, sleep/recovery, no injuries, no personal issues, no illness etc).

I agree you can build a fantastic physique, something like Cristiano Ronaldo's would be acheivable realistically - here's a guy who genuinely started out as a 145lb 6fter - over the span of a decade has made himself 40lbs heavier while staying at the same level of bodyfat.

Simeon, Plitt (RIP), Rob Riches (tested positive), Zyzz (RIP - tested positive, admitted to PED use) etc, all these fitness models are known in the industry to be on PEDS, but they immorally keep this a secret so they can sell workout programs and supplements to desperate teens the world over.

The fitness industry disgusts me, it teaches teenage boys/ young men (among other demographics) that they can look like their favourite athletes naturally, through buying their protein powders and expensive gym memberships. Fortunately there is much work being done to educate the population about what is realistically acheivable:

One such example is a youtube channel called FitnessFAQS - who teaches everyone that you can achieve your fitness goals with home workouts (slowly increasing difficulty), natural/organic food, recovery and most importantly, TIME.

@6ftmagician: I'm not attacking you but it is possible to gain an impressive physique without steroids! Proper nutrition, plenty of rest and intense training but above all else...patience. He didn't gain all that mass in a short period of time. It's taken him a good few years to get there and he's gonna get even better. Those small scientific details that you mentionec are probably second nature to him. Genes do help but they're not the be all and end all. Look at Simeon Panda (6ft1 btw). He was a skinny runt before started lifting. Its taken him about 8 years at least to get to where he is now.

Lance Armstrong is a different bag altogether. He's a cheat who defecated on cycling. Even though I'm not a huge cycling enthusiast, I was always suspicious of his victories at Tour De France especially after his illness. That he could just bounce back and win like it was nothing.

@rampageglover

It is not possible for a natural athlete to get that big. The general public is naturally oblivious to that - even Lance Armstrong (a 120lb guy) took steroids, for competitive cycling. Even in those endurance sports steroids use is rife - not least in sports where muscle is an advantage - sprinting (all top sprinters; Gay, Powell, Blake, Dix, Carter, except Bolt have tested positive). Even in natural bodybuilding (note, not competitive where steroid use is well documented and de facto allowed) everyone uses steroids. I suggest you educate yourself - the biggest a real natural can get is the size of Cristiano Ronaldo - but there is even suggestions that he took HGH (human growth hormone). So before you call anyone ignorant please educate yourself and do not attack someone before considering the evidence. I will not attack you, Calum very may well be the best living genetic specimen known to man but there is 0.00001% of that being possible.

I would hazard a guess most on this board do not even know scientifics behind building muscle - basics even - such as calorie, macronutrient and micronutrient requirements and protein synthesis, nor the impact genetics play in the ability to build muscle.

Here is a little fact to get you started - building muscle is a very slow process - and under the perfect variables (genetics, diet, training, no injuries, sleep) a natural athlete can build 10lbs of lean muscle a year maximum. Shocker, right? Well 10lbs is a lot - go get 10lbs of lean beef and imagine that spread over your body.

Oh yeah, all those hollywood transformations - 30lbs gain in 6 months - haha, either steroids or 5lbs muscle gain and 25lbs fat gain - just look at Fatleck preparing for Batman vs Superman.

Hey it seems you guys are accepting now the fact that he's likely 5'11 today. He's never been over 6'1".

Do steroids really effetct to height? I've never heard such a thing. I2 don't believe heavy weight training causes losing height, maybe after training but it's permanent.

Some people just lose more height when they get older. Long torso loses more that short torso. There are other things that affect on height loss like enough nutrients, calsium use and physical education.

Here is the picture again from a slightly different perspective. Both Flex and Arnold are exactly the same distance from the camera and footwear (or lack thereof) can be clearly seen. Arnold looks max 2 inches taller than 5-8.5 Wheeler. Some sources give Wheeler 5-9 but NEVER more. How can this be a 6-2 man (would be 6-3 in shoes) standing next to a barefoot 5-9er.

Calum is not 6'2''. I will not get into a whole debate about this but I will say he is 185 or 186 max. Arnie is right around 5'11'' and before he was 184-ish. Cannot believe the myth about lifting reducing height drastically, as I've mentioned, basketball, with all its landing, exerts far more force through the body, and no, basketball does not and never will make anyone taller than their genetics allow.

I don't think Arnold was ever 187, I think he was more 184-185. In Predator, he was the same height as 6'1" Weathers and Arnold was in cowboy boots in the beginning scene. If bodybuilding takes such a toll on height then how is it possible that Lou Ferrigno, who I still see in the gym has only lost an inch?
Silky says on 20/Jan/15
Arnie was most likely much closer to a true 5'11 than 6'2. Heights are inflated and exaggerated in sporting events. And don't forget Arnie always liked to wear decent heeled shoes. So it could take a 5'11 man up to the 6'1 range for films and appearances.
6ftMagician says on 19/Jan/15
@ Henry, you are the closest to the truth here concerning Arnie's height. You are right attacking Danimal's claim regarding the bodybuilding world - it's true the bodybuilding industry is among the worst regulated in sports. It has no shame telling gym-goers that 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight is essential for building muscle. The truth is, the body needs only 0.7g per lb (I can cite this if needed) - they inflate this to sell more protein, the most expensive macronutrient (compared to Carbs and fats).
6ftMagician says on 19/Jan/15
@Danimal, Great so we agree Arnie is at best 181cm today. Sorted.

Now, your explanation regarding his peak height is all very well and good but there is no proof of this measurement in 1969 at 6'1.5'' at night. simply put, pics or it didn't happen. Till I see pics of this, I'll just assume he was closer to 183 peak height and he just shrunk within the normal 1 inch or so range.

@Henry As you rightly pointed out, this theory that lifting shrank Arnie's spine 5cm doesn't have much scientific backing. Basketball (among other sports) exerts far greater spinal stressors than does lifting weights, jumping exerts in excess of 5 times your bodyweight upon landing, and Kareem did that non stop for 20 years. Kareem was also a super athlete so his jumps were higher, thus his landing impact greater. He still aged very gracefully. What I'm getting at is Arnie did not shrink 5cm, he shrank closer to 2cm. Not even athletes in super spinal stressing sports such as basketball shrink that much (even considering taller people i.e. 7ft-ers should shrink more).

Danimal, your contention that . "Arnold was a professional bodybuilder and a very well respected one," is fallacious on several levels. When he was a bodybuilder, there was no category of 'professional bodybuilder.' It didn't exist. Arnold made money from many other areas (laying bricks, for starters). Another hilarity is not understanding that "bodybuilder" and 'well-respected" is not an oxymoron. Next, you say "all of his measurements have been very well documented." Oh, really? By whom? The bodybuilding 'press' and Arnold himself, both of whom have a long, sorry history of exaggeration and distortion and denying facts (steroids, much?) to sell you something. You've been sold. Worse yet, you've bought into it. And are spreading their lies to the gullible. And no, losing three inches is not THE NORM for a guy in his mid 60's.


Your wrong in every accord.

Abnormal height loss has been lost by several 60 something body builders and wrestlers who have had multiple surgeries. Hulk hogan, roddy piper, the undertaker, ed corney. Paul orndoff, the list goes on and there will be more. Some of These guys can't even stand . Average height loss of 3 inches is not the norm of the average human but these guys don't sit in desks and aren't accountants. They severely abuse there body in every way

And yes. Arnold is a liar on several accords but other people measuring him especially those with distain for him isn't something that would be fabricated.

Arnold has admitted to using steroids frequently. The commentary of the pumping iron anniversary edition he says that he has and that it was commonly discussed amongst other body builders and was in fact the NORM. It wasn't a big deal to them it was part of what they did


If you read the celeb heights caption up top you will see that he was measured by a reputable body builder and trainer who actually didn't like Arnold and was measure 6'1.5. Please read its in the above caption

This argument will go on and on that that's why it's one of the hottest pages on the site.

@Daniaml,

I think the Dolph Ziggler case is one of the strongest yet but the John Cena case you mentioned evaded me, that is also very solid proof too!

Arnie seems to be 181cm in the morning and at night he is probably holding onto 180cm-ish!

I'm less interested in Arnies height today - nothing more than 5'11'' - I'm more interested in whether or not he was ever 187cm, for which I have doubts.

I don't like to over inflate guys heights, but in the case of Arnold, he was professional bodybuilder and a very well respected one. All of his measurements, from his bodyweight, to the circumference of his arms, legs, chest, etc, have been well documented over almost a span of 50 years. A man who openly despises Arnold (for everything that he stands for) wanted to prove that Arnold was not the 6'2" man that he claimed to be and so, Vince Basile challenged Arnold one night in Los Angeles in 1969 and measured him barefoot at 6'1.5". Arnold was a legit tall man, who used to be taller than almost everyone he met, including legit 6'0" and even 6'1" men. The list goes on and on and on. People don't have as much trust and credence in his former height, because of how tall he is today and has been for the past decade or more. It sort of lends to an inherent bias to his previous height when looking at his shrunken present height. YES, it is not the norm for a 67 year old man to have lost almost 3", but Arnold has never been a normal man in the physical sense. Whatever the contributing factors are, his body has aged well beyond his actual biological years. His face has aged 40 years in the last 10. His hair has thinned at a sped up rate in the last few years, as has his height. It's hard to imagine that he struggles to look 5'11" today, when he used to always look minimum 6'1" with ease, but that is the reality of it.
Henry says on 18/Jan/15
Arnold and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are the exact same age. To those pretending that the vertically-challenged Arnold was once six foot two, but has lost something like four inches in his golden years, well, Kareem has lost what, a half-inch? Kareem was an actual athlete, not a faux athlete. The wear and tear on his body was immense. Six foot two peak for Arnold? Only in his own mind.

"Danimal" is certainly correct: professional wrestling and professional bodybuilding never, ever exaggerate the heights or weights of their 'athletes.' Because they don't exaggerate to make money.

It is common in the bodybuilding and wrestling world, where the same so-called 'federation' that runs the 'sport' advertises the 'athletes.' Arnie? Real peak height, five eleven.

If arnie was ven 1mm over 5'11.5 ,rob would have listed him 6ft or 5'11.75 , if rob has him 5'11.5 it means he is more 5'11.25-11.5 than 11.5-11.

Dmeyer, come on, now don't exaggerate.
Rob will also be good at estimating heights, but a difference of a few millimeters, perhaps not even a laser beam is able to estimate it!
Look at the pic posted by Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" side by side with Joe Manganiello, you think he is only 182 cm ?

@satchy

You'll need to forgive Danimal. He tends to be overly dramatic and quite repetitive. That's what a decade 50 or more daily comments to the same website will do to you psychologically. Arnold has roughly 2in but not 3in. In another 10 years...who knows. A lot of it is to do with injuries on set followed by intensive surgeries. Age is also a factor.

hi guys, can somebody explain to me why his height loss was so drastical? I mean 2 inches is quite a loss

More like 3" height loss, not 2". It's a combination of age, decades of heavy weightlifting, steroid abuse, poor health in later life, stress, and perhaps he's had surgeries (hip replacement, back surgery, etc).


No perhaps Danimal, his surgeries are well documented. I posted a bunch of links a while back

I don't understand that when it comes to a severe height loss (3 inches ) as in hulk hogan it's believable and actual and when it comes to Arnold some people believe even AN INCH is out of the question. What? How? They are roughly the same age with Arnold actually being older. They both abused there bodies, abused steroids, and were active into there 50's and more active then the normal 60+ man today. They both had major surgeries ( neck,back,hip) that severely alter posture and height. Much like hogan he's lost close to 3 inches in height.

-------------------

Sure, why not do 4 inches while we're at?
It seems to me that a more correct estimate. lol
Do not say nonsense. First he has never been a full 6'2", point first.

Second point, it seems to me very, very strange that Basile has measured him at 6'1.5" in the afternoon after a heavy weight training.
Most likely he is wrong by a few millimeters in the measurement, because even at 19 or 20 years, he did'nt look more than 186 cm in good posture barefoot in a lot of photos next to Reg Park.

Point three, he in all the pics in his bodybuilding days, next to a legit 6'1" footer as Mike Katz, he was always their same height or a little more, so a solid 6'1", not 6'2" as you say.

Fourthly, I never heard that years of body bulding do lose height more than normal, even if the use of steroids, however something he has not made much use. If anything it's the opposite.

So in summary: peak height 185.5 cm, 183 cm now (if he's standing straight, look at his pic with Manganiello posted by Celebheights 6'1.5 "-6'2") and 182-181 cm if he's relaxed. So 1-1.5 inches of maximum height loss.
The 3 inch you say, are an absurdity that does not exist nowhere.

What about Arnold next to 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon, 5'9"-5'10" George St-Pierre, 5'11" Dennis Wolf, 6'0" John Cena? Do those not qualify as legit cases to you? Arnold has been looking below 5'11" for a while now.

Satchy, I can explain his 'drastical height loss,' he was never six two to being with. It was always a scam from day one. It is common in the bodybuilding and wrestling world, where the same so-called 'federation' that runs the 'sport' advertises the 'athletes.' Arnie? Real peak height, five eleven. Height today: five ten. One inch loss. Normal shrinkage rate for a senior citizen his age: 67.

Never thought Arnie would fall to a flat 180cm but I guess heavy lifting and years of spinal abuse does that to some people.

Trevor: Well thats something we will never know, however usually Guiness are very adamant about measurements. Alot of people have lost their records because of refusing said measurements. Also you should read the email from Vince Basille he states that Arnold was even taller than 185cm and his bicep measurement is pretty legit give a half inch or so. I actually believe his 186 cm claim as back then he was an unknown and more importantly he was using metric. 6'1.5 is in the 186cm range as well 186.69 or so which is why Rob rounded up but who is to say Vince didnt round up a bit?. He was already down to my height during films like End of Days, a couple cm loss which wasnt bad but then after 60 he started losing alot.

Defiantly over 6-0 peak,6-0.75" max imo. Now 5-11"approx. 1.5" loss is believable. From 6-2 to now 5-11" is too much hence he was never 6-2". Hollywood height not real height.

Never understood this whole "it's too much", or "it doesn't sound right to me", etc. Too much according to whom? To what? Whether something doesn't compute in your mind, doesn't mean it's not real. Some people DO lose more than the average. Arnold is one of those people, as is Robert Plant, Clint Eastwood, Louis Gossett Junior, and just about every wrestler from the 1980's.

Well its your opinion,but he was never 6-2" in mine. Hence 5-11" approx today.

Look the guy aged like crap as did most of the 70s action stars and wrestlers. His 2-3 inch height loss sums it up. You also have to remember the amount of plastic surgery he had. Minus the Botox from the equation too and yikes

Arch Stanton my dad is that age too but c'mon. Aside from a few age marks and 20lbs you can still tell it's him lol look at his eyes. Arnold looks like he's perpetually on a motorcycle doing 100mph.

This guy is a shell of the man he was in the 1970s. Screw height. As a whole he did not age well. Suddenly e looks Asian. His posture. His mannerisms. We are talking about the alpha male of alpha males at one point. Juiced up. He looks horrendous. With that being said I think he's a weak 5'11 today wich means I believe he's generally in the high 5'10 range mid day. A far cry from the Austrian oak who stood in my eyes 6'1 the days of pumping iron.

He's 67 years old Junior. Gingery hair dye and back wear and tear aside he's not looking too bad at all for his age. You can't possibly expect a 67 year old guy to still be as they were in their prime. My dad, although still fit, is starting to look the shell of what he used to at 66, he's shrunk in both height and frame and looks quite frail at times now and in his prime he was an athletic surfer. He can't even hold down a bar chord on the guitar for very long anymore due to arthritis problems. It is horrendous generally what happens to guys in their 60s. Most guys undergo some major aging changes in which they go from essentially middle age to old age. Harrison Ford is one of the few guys I can think of off the top of my head who managed to go through his 60s relatively unscathed aside from the height loss. Arnie compared to a lot of guys his age still looks pretty good I think.

Serge Nubret sstated a few years before he passed that he was 180cm. Arnold looked two inches taller minimum.
Joe says on 2/Jan/15
Body building is very stressful on the body particularly the skeleton, its not hard to imagine that he has lost height with age, he is in his 60s, when he was in his prime, I believe he was 6'1" not a full 6'2", that was his height in shoes. With age he has gotten out of shape and lost cartilage in his spine and knees, so my best guess is that he is 5'11" today.
6ftMagician says on 2/Jan/15
Rob, I normally agree with your opinions but a 5cm loss is honestly not right for Arnold. On no planet can someone lose that much. Arnie was never over 185cm, can't see 186 or 187 to be honest. Let's not forget just how commanding a true, legit 187 guy/girl is.

I think his peak was just under the full 6'1'' and today he is just under 6'0''. Arnie probably has genes which make him more susceptible to height loss + injuries/spine damage and lifting weights causes extra wear and tear.

From 184-185cm to 181-182cm today.
[Editor Rob: look at some of the wrestlers who have lost inches, I don't think 2 inches by latter half of 60's is out of this world for someone who was putting their spine under decades of extreme work, stuff that 99.999% of people don't do.]

Avillax says on 2/Jan/15
I think he was actually 6' 1.5", I'll you why. In Austria they use the metric system, so that would be equal to 187 cm, people who use the Metric system wouldn't know how to translate that exactly and so they would just say 2" instead of 1.5. I've read his bio as well as seen all his of his pics and in his body building days he was always towering over other competitors who were believed to be between 5' 10 and 5'11 and he was always good 2-3" taller barefoot, plus the only believable record that survived was when he was measured in competition to be 187 cm. I do believe he shrank, I mean he's a 70 year old with a big head which also gives the impression of being shorter now so I believe he's probably 6 feet tall now.
BigViking says on 2/Jan/15

Im 5'11" flat at night-asked my dad about it (flew him, private pilot, 5'9") he said arnolds 5'9".

He was entered into the Guiness book for his other measurements, 57 inch chest which was massive. 22 inch bicep, there were full body measurements done , height was only added in the interest of being thorough. In was the 74 edition i think but its been a long time since i had that copy. Now think about it if they measured his chest at 57 inches then he would have to be tall to pull of the proportions he had at the time. I personally have a 46 inch chest with low fat and im just over 6'.05 at night barefoot and i dont look stocky neither did he if you look at photos. He was minimum my height at peak so maybe 185cm in afternoon but i cant say he would be lower. In this case the proportions do not lie a 5'11 man would look like a box with that size chest.

I was referring to Arnold not being standing straight, but in relaxed posture.
What does your lines have to do with it?
It's useless to try to mystify things, everyone can see your stupid lines are positioned on the lowest Arnie's eye, so you can step on toes to ground up to consume the shoes.

Anyway, your Arnold-Lee pics are horrible.
For starters we don't see the shoes, nor the ground, the shooting angle is bad, and most important, there is no other Arnold-Lee photos for a rebuttal.
Besides, I am not surprised that much, is the tactic of you trolls bring unclear and badly angled photos, so everyone can say everything and its opposite.

But why sometimes you don't bring some good photos for an honest comparison?

Whether Arnold is, or ever was, over six feet tall and whether he is, and has possibly always been, under six feet tall is surely missing the point. The point is surely that he single-handedly inspired literally millions of boys around the world to risk their health, take anabolic steroids, and lie about it. This is true greatness. Forget they also shaved their legs and underarms and attempted to grow breasts bigger than their own mothers to match their masculine icon. What a man.

He just wasnt tall enough to get away with it.

@NNA
Clearly you don't understand sarcasm. If you need to drop credentials and education because you can't properly articulate your points, then anyone can do this. Guess what, Mensa held a competition and I won, so therefore I'm right.

Your whole argument here is based on inaccuracies. You clearly prefer a rigged game. I never said it's two inches from the middle of your eye to the "tip" of your nose. It's from the middle of your eye to the bottom of your nostril where it joins your face. If you don't believe me, get a ruler and measure it. I certainly never said it was three inches either, as that's just a strawman tactic. With that in mind
Click Here
that's 2 inches difference, when measuring from lee's higher eye to Arnold's lower eye. For the sake of this argument I'll look past the flagrant favoritism of Lee's advantaged side VS Arnold's disadvantaged side that surely was intentional. Correcting for this with putting the line at the average between both eyes gives a more fair and accurate comparison. Saying it's just a inch is plain wrong, and I've proven it to be incorrect. Maybe a baby might have only an inch. Understand that you're wrong, and quit making up petty fallacies to save yourself.

This is actually a first. I've seen lots of made up height downgrades and upgrades only to cheat an agenda. But I've never seen a unit of measurement upgrade. How could anyone expect anyone to believe it's only an inch from your eye to the center of your forehead, or that it's "hardly" and inch difference in the photos you've posted. And that Arnold is as low as only 2 inches taller than Hollande shows you're either just a troll or entirely ignorant of units of measure (among many other things I'm sure). Are you truly confused? Or are you that desecrated to make up false facts in face of defeat.

Simply repeating that the lines are not aligned properly here
Click Here
or that there's a tilt doesn't make it true. Both accusations are made up by you.

Take your pick. It's unanimous, and there's nothing of mention of your height "correction". Arnold enjoys all kinds of shoes and boots, and has been seen numerous times in cowboy boots. But he's never been seen or proven to use lifts or elevator shoes. That's always been fantasy speculation by people like you on sites like this. Sarcozy is a proven lift wearer who also stands on platforms in front of podiums and stands on his toes. Look at his heels, they almost look like disco platforms, compared to Hollandes normal looking shoes

Click Here
So again, proper critical thinking should not accept throwing away numerous listed heights in light of a comparison to a known lift wearer in stacked heels.

I'm not familiar with Aamir khan, but he's listed 5'6", not 5'3"-5'4". He's also rumored to be a lift wearer from what I've read, being a short action star in India. I don't know because I don't know him. One thing for sure, I can see skin above where you've drawn Arnold's cranium line. Yet another "mistake" among a deluge of mistakes on this latest post of yours. Aamir's cranium is at Arnold's eye level, as you've drawn, which displays 5 inches. Arnold has a head lean, so straightening up he'd easily reach the 5'11.5" he's currently listed at.

This is overall a poor example for several reasons. We can't see their feet, as this guy is meeting his hero, this would be the time to wear lifts if he wears them. Low ball estimations for him are only public speculations and opinions, so they are nothing solid or official to go by. It's a one of a kind photo, as there aren't any other photos or videos to compare it to. But going by whats officially on the books, Arnie does seem to be over 5'11" but under 6' there.

Which part of 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon being noticeably taller than Arnold is difficult for you to accept?
------------------

Danimal, you can see the footwear they worn in the video?
No, because the feet are cut by the frame.
Then, you're so sure that Jimmy is not wearing some type of shoes that give him some advantage?
Are you really sure?
Is Jimmy Fallon really 182 cm tall?
I can fold down to you the question: is a concept so hard to accept for you?

Laughable comparison and macroscopically obvious attempt to cheat.

Second photo: pathetic. Arnold is not standing straight but relaxed.

Third photo: clearly pathetic as above. Arnold has his head tilted and he's not standing straight.

Fourth photo: Same for the third.

Fifth photo: always the same thing. The line is positioned on the lowest Arnie's eye in a pathetic attempt to cheat, hoping that the others don't notice it. Unfortunately you went wrong.

Sixth picture: you can't see the ground, the angle slightly favors Holland and who knows what other lifts and various tricks is using Sarkozy (another with the Napoleon complex).

Seventh photo: pathetic and blatantly obvious that the line on the Arnold's head cuts the top of his skull. Besides Arnold has his head tilted towards Aamir khan.

Unfortunately for you, your clumsy and obvious attempts were discovered.
You can safely conclude conclude that a psychiatric visit would be particularly appropriate. :-)

Wow we got another Hallucinating friend or is it GUY posting with a different ID. Hmmm. You never know.

Anyways, First of all, i used the thinnest line available in any software to draw the lines.

Secondly My lines are positioned at the center. But even if for argument sake, i except your STUPID rebuttal that i positioned it on lower level of Arnold's eye, again it doesn't support your Twin hallucinating friend's argument of 3 inches difference, because if the distance between the center of your eye and its lower part accounts for something in inches then My Friend, you are not a human. In this case, You are a Tarsier. Yes that's what you are.

I see that you never came up if anything solid to negate my proofs. You acted like a typical 3 year old who cried over the fact that his Twin brother was bullied. " Pathetic", "lines not straight" and " Pathetic" is all i could get from your laughable post.

I always wondered how Arnold could be 6-2 and only 235 lbs when everyone else at that height easily weighs 280-290 lbs looking the same size as Arnold. But of course at 5-11 - 5-11.5 peak everything makes much more sense!

Arnold's self-proclaimed 'height' is much like his college 'degree': phony, phony, phony. But, given the plastic surgery, the dye job, the capped teeth, you've got to admit the guy is consistent when it comes to living the lie.
Horace says on 30/Dec/14
I admit, for much of my life, I actually believed Arnold was six foot two, because that was his billed height and that is what he told everyone for decades. Am I to understand that all this time, he was not, in fact, a man (over six feet tall), but a manlet (under six feet tall)? Wow. Talk about smoke and mirrors. I wonder if he had to use a booster seat when he had to GET TO THE CHOPPER.

Well I'm actually an astrophysicist and I also perform brain surgery for fun on my days off, so that pretty much makes me right. Comparing Hollande to Sarcozy is comparing someone to a notorious lift wearer who's insecure about his height. But if you want to declare that all of the listings of Hollande's height of 5'7" are unreliable, and your comparison to a lift wearer IS reliable, then cherry-pick whatever evidence supports your claim regardless of any accuracy.

Belittling insults do nothing for your cause, and that's all you bring. It doesn't faze me, and reveals nothing but a smokescreen for flimsy paper-thin argument. We can argue about proper eye placement or line width until the cows come home. Frankly Arnold is not standing straight in that photo anyway, so focusing an argument there is baseless to get an accurate comparison with Lee. This shot, which is a still from the video you provided, is the more accurate comparison
and yet you refuse to comment. The video earlier shows Arnold lowering his height to honor the shorter man, which is seen in the published photo. But Arnold then raises his height, and it's clear the difference is greater. You say you're a graduate student, which implies you insist you're very smart, and yet you choose to overlook this. Like I've said before, you use photos from two months ago to prove Arnold was 5'10" max prime 45 years ago, as if to say that if he doesn't look 6'1.5 now, he never was.

I don't have much of a problem with Arnold now being listed 5'11 1/2", as that's what he seems to look today. He was taller than 6' Tony Blair and 5'11 1/2" George W Bush during his term as Governor. He's clearly been shrinking since around the year 2000. None of this confirms your continued insistence that he was only 5'10" peak. You haven't proven anything.

____________________________________________________________________________

Oh you are astrophysicist and you perform brain surgeries on your off days for fun ... YEAH RIGHT. and I go to moon on my off days ... match that.

How many times i have to remind you my hallucinating friend, your lines are not aligned properly. Please Mr. Astrophysicist, try learning how to draw lines on your off days, that'll help you more.

Now coming to the fact that i don't talk with proves. Lets see some pictures, this time, thinnest lines used to answer all those who criticized me with using thicker lines in my previous pictures.

1) Click Here

In this picture you can clearly see that the difference is hardly about an inch. If you measure the distance from the center of your eye to the tip of your nose, its hardly an inch. All of you try it now and see.
@GUY, if the distance in your case is about 3 inches or more, then you are not a human. You are a Horse.

2) Click Here

In the above picture, Lee's head is slightly tilted towards his right shoulder which affects the measurement. But again, if you analyse, the difference is far from 3 inches. Again everyone, try measuring the distance from the center of your eye to the middle of your forehead and tell me how much is it. hardly an Inch or 1.2 inch in some cases.
@GUY, if your distance is about 3 inches or more, i bet you know what you are then.

3) Click Here

In the above picture again, the difference is hardly about 1 inch to 1.2 inch.

4) Click Here

In this picture, Arnold is standing more upright and Lee's head is slightly tilted towards his right shoulder. Again the difference is about 1 inch to 1.2 inch.

Now what did you say that my comparison of Francois Hollande with Sarcozy was absurd because Sarcozy wears lifts. It's even rumored that Arnold too wears lifts in these kind of shoes which he is so fond of: Click Here

Now coming to Sarcozy and Hollande. Please quote a reliable source where it says that Hollande is 5'7. Please list one reliable source. Since you cant so let's move forward:

5) Click Here

In the picture above, Hollande (Probably 5'6 to 5'6.5) standing next to Arnold. Here you can see a difference of 2-3 inches. Plus there is no question about the footwear regarding Hollande.

6) Click Here

Here is the picture of Nicholas Sarcozy ( around 5'5 or little less) with Francois Hollande (5'6 to 5'6.5).

7) Click Here

Here is the picture of Arnold with Bollywood actor Aamir khan who is shortest in the whole Indian industry at 5'3 to 5'4. This is what you call a difference of 4-5 inches.

8) Click Here

For all my friends who doesn't know how big an inch is. Above is the reference. For even more practical reference, please see any measuring tape at your house which gives measurement in Inches as well.

We have to realize that Arnold is rumored to wear those suspicious heeled shoes on many occasions which may conceal a lift.

We can safely conclude that Arnold Current height is some where between 5'9 and 5'10. Peak height would have been 5'11 to 5'11.5 in his 20's and 30's.
Trevor says on 30/Dec/14
How does anyone know he was measured by Guiness? Maybe, they took his 'stats' from his fake sport ("Go, Thong Warriors!") at face value. Five eleven, peak. Five ten today. The mystery is not how he magically shrunk 'so much' (he was never tall to begin with). The mystery is how he fooled everyone into believing it for so long.

184.3cm says on 29/Dec/14
@Heightcrazyred6ft

Yes he was also measured by the Guiness Book of World Records and his height was stated as 185cm , this was in the 70's but he did claim 186cm during the filming of The Running Man i think it was and both are possible. If he was a flat 6ft 1 then there is the possibility that he was Rob's listing out of bed and down to the low 185 range at night. 186 is still very fair though unlike his later claim of 6ft 2 (188cm).
And to be honest the amercian dream in that period was more 6'4 as all the big names were around that range. It still is the alpha height even guys taller than 6'4 claim it ! Although in Europe i tend to hear 190cm the most.

Dude i know its frustrating when someone beats you at your game. I am a doctorate student and very much a reliable source when it comes to measurements. In your first picture, your line with relation to eye levels has a tilt. Good trick to prove your fake argument. Second one was a cheesy joke.

If you possess a thing called Common Sense (in case you don't know what it is, feel free to google it), kindly zoom in to my pictures and see that i have made sure to include the center of his eye.

As for Francois Hollande, no reliable source gives his actual height. But guessing by looking at his pictures while standing next to Nicholas Sarcozy who is 5'5, he has clearly got an inch edge, which is a simple math and adds up his height to be 5'6. I know this logical argument is difficult for your diminitive mind to comprehend but nevertheless, i hope you can grasp what i am saying (though i expect you to propagate your fake hero worship again and again - which is ok since we need comedians like you on these pages to lighten up the mood).

I think it's safe to say that the movies are responsible for Arnold's height loss.

That makes absolutely no sense? Decades of lifting heavy weights, taking boatloads of steroids did Arnold in, but imo, was sped up the process at a ridiculous rate was when he became governor. Look at Bill Clinton. It seems that the stress of being in office takes it's toll on the body and these men walk away a shadow of their former selves. I think the divorce didn't help either.

There's a couple of flaws with your paragraph. You're implying that Arnold was never over 6'0.5"-6'1" and you based your 6'0" estimate on 1 pic from 1996. There is ample evidence that Arnold was still a solid 6'1" (down from 6'1.5"-6'1.75") well into the 1990's. His height loss only started becoming apparent by the time he became governor (he started looking around 6'0" at that point).

Full 6'1 peak - 185.5cm hence the 186cm claim he gave when younger. 6'2 claim was shoe height.
Nowadays give him a break hes in pension age..5'10.75-5'11.25 he can appear. It seems alot but the steriod abuse and seriuos heavy lifting for decades takes a toll.

************************************************

Actually he claimed 1,85m before he used the standard system and claimed 61" before he mysteriously grew to his 62" claim of an optimal man height for american dream propaganda of american dream...

Or he just used the american system of measuring height in shoes...

Take it how you want but in reality he was 1,85m peak (evening) and is 511" today... Basille had either a generous stadiometer or is just bogus.



Rob,
tell Arnie he can use the metric system again as he still clears the magic 180cm, before he terminates you.

Arnie is not 182cm because Jimmy Fallon is that height and Arnie is noticeably shorter than him so how can he be 182?, to me hes not over 5ft 11 today.
Stan says on 25/Dec/14
Rob might had generous enough given 5'11.5 to arnie. this listing had to be in shoe
Connor183 says on 25/Dec/14
So you finally downgraded Arnie Rob but I have to say I disagree with you on this one sorry he doesn't look anywhere near 182 cm more like 180.5-181cm to me.
Dmeyer says on 25/Dec/14
Rob you agree arnie has Been 5'11.5 for aleast 3 years , it make sens arnie rounding 1in up 6'0.5 , also when he claimed 6'1 he was 6ft , at peak claimed 6'1.75-2in but was close Like 6'1-1.5in
[Editor Rob: in the last 2 years he has been struggling to look the 6ft mark. At times he still looks close, other times not much over 5ft 11]

ALL ARNIE GOT FOR CHRISTMAS WAS 2 CM HEIGHT LOSS

Wow and so it is, Arnold is now a member of the 5 foot somethings club!

That picture with the Asian actor proves Arnie is at least 5'11", possibly 6 feet even (183cm) out of bed.

1 picture does NOT prove anything. 5'11.5" MAX Jimmy Fallon was noticeably taller than Arnold today. I don't know why most people cannot accept this FACT.
Danimal says on 24/Dec/14
UpYours says on 24/Dec/14
Seeing him in younger pictures and the Conan/Terminator years, 6-1.5 is about right. Now it is obvious he's shrunk down to about 5-11.5 to 6'. Nothing to be ashamed of, everyone that get's older looses about 2 inches or more.

Here is another proof. In the picture below you can see Stallone, Faran Tahir and Arnold:

Now Faran Tahir is a little bent in the picture above and Faran is registered on this site around 5'9.
--------------------------------
Faran is likely closer to the camera. You can tell by the shadow he's casting on Arnold. He and Stallone appear to be side by side, but Arnold could be a one or two feet behind. I can't find any other good comparison photos of both of them. In order to make a good solid claim, you'd need several good shots with ideal comparison. Having only one with possible balance issues won't alter history. And considering this movie just came out, it wouldn't do anything anyway towards meddling with Arnold's established peak height 25+ years ago.

So you've basically replaced my more narrow precise line with a much wider more vague one in the face to face photo. You've placed it on the lower part of Arnie's eye rather than the center, hoping the extra width of the line will create the illusion of a lower eye level .

The side by side one where their heads are tilted, I made sure to place my line at the average height between both eyes. You've deliberately chosen the lower eye, at least to demonstrate Arnold's eye level. And it's still at least 2 inches difference by your cheating method, so you've failed your agenda even while taking deviant liberties. I don't think you even know what an inch looks like in comparison to begin with.

Francois Hollande is 170cm or 5'7", as what is listed on page after page of research. Why do you trolls feel the need to lie and deceive with made up facts and corrupt methods? Why does one side exclusively do this while the other easily proves their point being fair and honest? That tells you something, because yet again you've used Arnold's lower eye as a reference and downgraded a comparison height. And what's even more laughable is using photos from 2 months ago to prove Arnold was only 5'10" peak 30-40 years ago, and still failing! That's taking cherry-picking to a whole new level.

Dude i know its frustrating when someone beats you at your game. I am a doctorate student and very much a reliable source when it comes to measurements. In your first picture, your line with relation to eye levels has a tilt. Good trick to prove your fake argument. Second one was a cheesy joke.

If you possess a thing called Common Sense (in case you don't know what it is, feel free to google it), kindly zoom in to my pictures and see that i have made sure to include the center of his eye.

As for Francois Hollande, no reliable source gives his actual height. But guessing by looking at his pictures while standing next to Nicholas Sarcozy who is 5'5, he has clearly got an inch edge, which is a simple math and adds up his height to be 5'6. I know this logical argument is difficult for your diminitive mind to comprehend but nevertheless, i hope you can grasp what i am saying (though i expect you to propagate your fake hero worship again and again - which is ok since we need comedians like you on these pages to lighten up the mood).

Full 6'1 peak - 185.5cm hence the 186cm claim he gave when younger. 6'2 claim was shoe height.
Nowadays give him a break hes in pension age..5'10.75-5'11.25 he can appear. It seems alot but the steriod abuse and seriuos heavy lifting for decades takes a toll.

In the above picture, you can clearly see that there is hardly a difference of an inch there.

In the second picture below, Lee's head is tilted towards right while Anrold's head is more straight thus creating a little more difference.

@NNA, in your second and third picture, your height lines are badly positioned, because they don't be placed on the Arnie's lowest eye, but at the center of both of them, as rightly Guy did it.
it's obvious that putting height line on the lowest eye, you false the measurement and you get a wrong measure.
And then why don't you draw the line also on the Lee's eyes in your second photo?
Because so you can see that the difference is the same as in the Guy's picture?

People on here who are offended that he is below 5ft11.5/6ft today and not even 6ft2 prime are the weak ones that have an utter dismal view on masculinity. All of their own sense of masculinity is tied to the height and size of their homo-erotic hereo's, and themseleves. Once that hereo's height isn't all that 'great' (in their world view), in turrn they feel hurt and somewhat demasculinized too. Absolutely pathetic bunch on here.

I don't mind, as some special people need a little more help. Do they look the same now? Are you going to stop this incessant nonsense now because it's getting old. Did you just glance at those photos for a brief moment, because I can't think you used your cursor or a straight edge to come to that conclusion. If you did, you didn't do a very good job.

As I suspected Arnold was resting his posture during a lot of the ceremony, and the video makes it even more clear. He's stooping his head and slouching in order to better engage the shorter man. We see Arnold raise his posture for a brief moment though, and both are standing in similar fashion.
Click Here
Arnold's cranium height is based on his chin to eye level, as your eyes are actually at the center of your head. I've based Lee's cranium height on Arnold's, so he's probably got a bonus as Arnold has the bigger head and no charge of favoritism. No crying that I've chopped off Lee's skull, as he obviously has bigger hair. In this comparison Arnold does look about 3 inches taller.

Arnold is I think right now at 68 or 69 years of age barefoot would be 180 cm. Peak during his bodybuilding days I don't think he was a legit 6'2(188 cm). I think he was 185 cm during in his low. At that age men lose height.

He's 67 years old.
Danimal says on 19/Dec/14
NNA says on 19/Dec/14
@Uh-Oh ... finally someone logically put it ... First of all, Arnold is 67 years old and to all those who say he was 6'2 at his peak and has now shrunked, Arnold is not suffering from Kyphosis that he would shrunk 4-5 inches. I have relatives who are 70 years old and have not shrunk to that extent. In the book " Total Recall", Arnold himself claimed that he and joe wider exagerated things in order to give larger than life impression. I think since Joe Wider promoted Arnold as the next big thing, it was important to promote him as a very tall man and it is still very common in Hollywood for celebs to upgrade their height on media in order to promote a larger than life image. 5'6 guys sell themselves as 5'9 guys. So according to the current estimate of Arnold's height, i am guessing he was in 5'10 range through out his career.

Shrunked? I'm sure you meant shrunk. Arnold is NOT an average 67 year old man. He's a lifetime professional bodybuilder and lifelong steroid user. His body has compressed on him and that is a fact. Man has lost close to 3".

6-1" max peak. Today 5-11". Its simple.

I've brought it to your attention twice, that you said they are the SAME height. On both occasions you go into some kind of convulsion if only for shock value with no confirmation of your own statement itself. I can only conclude that you truly either believe their eye-lines are the same, or you're getting your kicks acting stupid. The distance from your eye pupil to the bottom of your nostril is 2 inches, and Lee falls just a bit below but not quite to Arnold's mouth which would be 3 inches. The difference in presumed cranium heights is also about this. Making a scene like a drama queen doesn't refute this.

The second photo shows a face to face comparison, which for that reason might not be a fair comparison. Face to face a shorter person will usually stand straighter to raise their eye height, and a taller person will lower his level in order to more see eye to eye. Arnold is presenting Lee with some kind of award, endearingly placing his hand on his side, and obviously not in the position to stand rigid like a robot towards the shorter man. Arnold still looks about 2 inches taller despite the fact he's hanging his head a bit forward and is slouching a bit. Lee appears to be standing straighter. Say whatever you want about posture, and I'm certain you'll disagree insultingly and without reason. Arnold looks about 2 1/2 inches taller in the first photo with better posture, and around 2 or possibly slightly less in the second with looser hunched posture. Lee is about 5'9 3/4" so Arnold looks about 6' 1/4" there in 2010.

Wrong, Girl. Sorry, "Guy." Arnold was, indeed, a tall bodybuilder but not a tall guy. There's a difference. Ferrigno is an exception. There are a few others, but not many. But I'm sure you know much more about Arnold's height than Kevin Sorbo does. Because, you know, you are you.

6'1.5" was and still IS considered tall.

Put it this way. Joe Manganiello dwarfs Arnie in height today, makes him look 5 ft 11 flat. Manganiello I've read considers Arnie a hero and the guy who interested him in fitness. Do you think when he met Arnie to do a film together his teenage fanboy dreams of becoming like Arnold were shattered after discovering he was 6 inches smaller than him? I'm pretty sure Joe couldn't give a toss how tall Arnie is but was just overjoyed to have worked and trained with the man and no doubt take on bodybuilding tips from him. A true masculine man tries to better himself, not try to make other people look small or inadequate. Even if Arnold is only 5 ft 10 today does it really matter than much?? Does it change what the man achieved in his lifetime?
Arch Stanton says on 17/Dec/14
@Vibram That's utter tosh!! I'm not offended by what anybody claims for him, you could tell me he was nothing over 5 ft 7 peak and 5'3" today. Makes no difference. Couldn't give a baboon's left tit what you or anybody else thinks. I'm not an Arnold fan boy. I try to assess height rationally and accurately without prejudice and I say exactly what I think. In his prime barefoot in films like the 1977 Olympia one Arnold barefoot or in low sneakers he genuinely did LOOK near 6 ft 2. In films of the 1980s and early 1990s the man LOOKED near 6 ft 2. I think Rob is spot on, although today I think he's more 5'11 range. Certainly he looked no less than 6'1. He made people like Bill Paxton look average. While next to guys like Will Chamberlain he could look like a tiny boy, to not consider Arnold at peak to have been a big man when he clearly was if anything illustrates that it is you and like-minded people whose masculinity feels threatened and why you have to try to portray him as a small man. 6'1.5 is not very tall range, and plenty of guys like Lou and Ralf were a lot bigger than Arnold in overall size but his overall height and physique to not consider the man to have been pretty big at peak that looks astonishing to the majority of the population. Arnie could have only been 5 ft 11, it doesn't really matter, the man was big built at peak, and I say this as somebody with quite a lot of knowledge about bodybuilding and fitness. That's not a masculinity or "homo-erotic" issue, it's fact.

@GUY .... bro are you suffering from schizophrenia or what ? If you look at the pictures there is no way a difference of 3 inches. I can't believe you came up with that logic. My God, can't believe you. You need help bro.
-----------------------
You said they're the same height in that photo. That's what you said, so go trolling somewhere else. Why would someone make a statement where the observation clearly shows otherwise. Lee looks at least 2 1/2 inches shorter than Arnold there, as his eyeline is below Arnold's nostril. If they were the same height, and this is a lesson for you, their eye heights would be at the same level. Lee is listed everywhere as 178cm or 5'10", but his official stat is 177 cm or almost 5'9 3/4".

Years ago, during Desert Storm, there was a ridiculous mouthpiece for Saddam's regime named, "Baghdad Bob." Bombs would be exploding directly behind him and the Iraqi troops slaughtered while he stood before the camera denying what we were actually seeing and singing Iraq's military praises and how they would win the war. Well, the mystery of Baghdad Bob's disappearance has been solved. He is now calling himself "Guy" and relentlessly and hopelessly waving his hands in the air and poking fingers in the sky about a geriatric 'action star's' supposed height. It's really a fascinating case of hero worship. So what if to anyone else's eyes, Schwarzenegger is in the five foot ten range. Believe Guy. The Baghdad Bob of our generation. Here's to you, "Guy." I mean, you gotta love the guy's (pun intended) ability to tell us white is black and five ten is six two. Let's just pray that someday your integrity might match your fidelity and loyalty to lost causes.

sorry Guy.......during his prime Arnold also posed against body builders who were listed at 6' to 6'2" and did appear shorter than them....so get off the 5'9" thing....he was at least 3 to 4 inches above 5'9" and that was obvious with some of the taller body builders he stood against.
mightyman says on 12/Dec/14
Also remember most of the celebrities he is also taking photos with are also wearing lifts. This makes him appear shorter when he isn't.
mightyman says on 12/Dec/14
Its not impossible he shrunk over the recent years. My dad is a 5'10 guy who is about 5'8 today. he shrunk over the past 3 years. hes in fairly good shape and only 64. I think the bones get progressively thinner with age and as these older guys weight train bit by bit it compresses the spinal bones. so the get squashed. If you look at Arnolds recent topless photos on the beach his upper body seems more compressed and not as long as it used to be. His legs still seem fine thou. This happens when yr estrigen in yr body is a bit higher than normal..your bone density starts to decrease and over a few years if u lift weights u will lose height unless you treat the higher estrogen. Arnold at 6'1 in his prime most definately. Today 5'11.5 probably.

Why would someone go to the length of posting that photo with Lee and declare the opposite of what everyone else can see. The same height? Look at the eye level, and Lee's cranium would come to just above the middle of Arnold's forehead. That's 3 inches. Have we really come to the point where we just imagine what we feel must be true?

Wrong, Girl. Sorry, "Guy." Arnold was, indeed, a tall bodybuilder but not a tall guy. There's a difference. Ferrigno is an exception. There are a few others, but not many. But I'm sure you know much more about Arnold's height than Kevin Sorbo does. Because, you know, you are you.

-----------------------------------------

This is pretty much your whole argument

Click Here

You haven't given anything else but this, unless you want to start making up a whole new height universe like Alucard. Both are stupid tactics, and both are used exclusively by the Arnold haters. Kevin Sorbo said "Arnold Schwarzenegger's about 5-11...yeah he says he's Six Three". When has Arnold ever said he was 6'3"? I don't think he ever has, and as an official height, that's blatantly false. So if he's exaggerated on one side, he could have easily exaggerated on the other. His credibility is shot, since we know as a fact that half of his statement is clearly bull.

Oh boy! Certain that the envy and the stature complex, make it say nonsense!

Jim says on 8/Dec/14

Maximus, given the 'tall' class for bodybuilding is five foot nine and over, a 'tall' bodybuilder is not necessarily a tall person. Arnold was definitely taller than his competitors, though dwarfed by Ferrigno. But to conclude because he was taller than his competitors, he was therefore tall? No. He was only 'tall' in the small world of bodybuilders.

-----------------------------

I know you think you're being very smart with this logic, but it's not smart at all. The 5'9" mark was an arbitrary division between the shorter below average competitors and the taller above average competitors. The 5'9" height was about average back then, and there were only two height categories. That would seem like a logical place to put the division. That's it.



Who says a tall bodybuilder can't be a tall person? These aren't horse jockeys. Can a tall person from a shorter country be tall by western standards? Of course. There are lots of tall Japanese men over 6 feet, as well as in other shorter nations. They can exist and they do exist. They can't just be "assumed" to only be "tall" next to other guys in their own countries. Using a bizarre logical fallacy proves nothing but desperation. Arnold was a tall bodybuilder and a tall guy, and there's no reason why both couldn't have occurred.

Bush Senior was listed 6ft2 (188cm) in his miltary career in the 1940's. He still had Arnold by 1 inch even in 1989 when Bush Senior is likely to have lost 1 to 0.75 inches since his military young man days. He was 65 in pictures with Arnie. I think Arnie was 6ft0.75 peak to be honest, and the 6ft2 listing was in boots, like most top actors add on 1 inch. He is now a weak 5ft11 / strong 5ft10 today. His pictures with 179cm Nubret also confirm my 184cm claims for peak.



Danimal says on 7/Dec/14


Rob, in your heart of hearts, you know that Arnold is below 6'0" today, right? I mean you have Jimmy Falon at 5'11.5" and Arnold at 6'0", yet it's clear as day, both in still pictures and video that Jimmy was noticeably taller than Arnold. Are you trying to preserve and maintain a reputation here Rob? Would it be bad publicity for you if you lowered Arnold to what he currently measures today, based on all his current pics?



Such as, him with a barefoot 5'11" pro German bodybuilder (who Arnold barely equaled in height while in dress shoes), him with 5'9"-5'10" MMA fighter GSP, who Arnold barely edged out, him with 6'0" John Cena, who Arnold was noticeably shorter than and lastly him with 5'11.5" max Jimmy Fallon who Arnold was noticeably shorter than as well. I just don't see what more proof you need or are looking for at this stage Rob to lower this man? You've done it with Clint Eastwood (although I do believe he's down to 5'11" today.

Well GUY you can think Im a troll. I think youre a fundamentalist, someone who is not able to see or recognise what is in front of your eyes.

--------------------------------

Simply saying, "you're wrong", is not a refutation. Is Kerry not closer to the camera? You even admitted this. So if you seem to understand depth perception a bit after having it explained to you, you still say nope, that Arnold's still 3 inches shorter somehow anyway. No reason. Just because you say so.



Arnold's not standing straight either, his head is tilted as well, so I doubt it's all Kerry's loss in height there. If you enlarge Arnold's head comparably to the size of Kerry's, as it would appear larger if he was closer to the camera, then they aren't far off. Kerry also has a more volume hair-style, whereas Arnold's is rather flat. But this is just a bad photo for comparison because of all this hypothesis. If you think such a bad photo should replace the one at the top of the page, and Arnold's peak height should be changed to 5'11" because of it, then you really have a low standard of evidence requirement.



Maximus says on 6/Dec/14


I think its a safe bet that Arnold was 6'1.5" in his prime......today he does appear to have lost a couple of inches in height so 5'11" is probably most accurate. He definitely didn't come across as short during his body building prime when he competed barefoot...he leaned towards the tall side...shorter body builders were fairly obvious.

Kman says on 6/Dec/14


Francois Hollande who is about 5'6" looked about 4 inches shorter than arnold. Putin and Hollande are in the same height 5'6". So Arnie could be only 5'10 today. Never been over 6'0".



Lucio says on 6/Dec/14


Fran77, Rodney, Alucard,

don't attempt to turn over the omelette, here are YOU, have to prove the bullsh*it you say, not us.

We have countless pictures of celebrities which height is well known, photographed with him in his prime, which attest without a doubt that he was at least 6'1" in his youth, whereas we have a few photos, with a bad angle or low/high angle shot (the result is the same, a distortion of the subjects), or taken with a wide-angle lens that warp the images too.



And these ones, are the pictures that TROLLS as Alucard, Fran77, Rodney, use bring as evidence! Lol.

junk photos that even an amateur photographer would classify them as such.



So please, don't make you ridiculous bringing ugly, pathetic and badly angled photos, and bring photos with neutral angle if you do not want to make you laugh behind, otherwise you're just troll with severe inferiority complex.



And you're trolls, as demonstrated by the fact that who knows why, you always bring, and I say "ALWAYS", bad angles photos taken with a wide angle lens.

Why don't you bring good pictures like these?

I tell you: because you need to downgrade Reg's Park and Chris Dickerson height, who are respectively 6'ft.1" (185.42 cm) and 5'ft.6" (168 cm).

lelman says on 6/Dec/14


I think if he stood up straight he would still be about 6'. He's getting on now, his posture doesn't look great. His son, on the other hand, has much better posture and looks slightly taller than Arnie. I think they are both weak 6 footers now.



Joe says on 5/Dec/14


Sometimes people claim their height in shoes, most of us never see these people without their shoes.

As I said before he was 6'1" in his prime years, it is not a huge stretch to for him to claim 6'2".

I would even wager in his prime years Arnie was 6'1.5" out of bed, and around 6'1" by night, so for him to add on a half an inch to his official height is not a huge deal.

His height with age is much less, I would say 5'11" would be about right for him today.

GUY says on 5/Dec/14


Fran77 says on 3/Dec/14

Yes I mean that picture :). Youre right Von Erich is closer to the camera so he look bigger, but the fact is he look two inches taller bending. If he was totally strighten up difference would look like four inches (like in the picture with Cristopher Reeve). If the angle was perfect (like pictures with Dennis Wolf) the difference would be like in Ferrigno pictures (Arnold 5.11-5.11.5, Ferrigno 6,2.5)

1.81-1.82 (5feet 11,5 in the morning, 5.11 flat (1.80) after two sets of squats.

------------------------------

Well that's all just conjecture. Anyone can make guesses based on imagining what the picture would be if the flaws were corrected, but that still automatically makes that evidence pretty bad to say the least. That's especially the case if it's to be a smoking gun that's supposed to refute an established fact. You don't get that by guessing, and I don't trust that any of you guys would be fair with that. The Dennis Wolf photo is not perfect, because it's a very high angle shot which easily distorts what you see in the photo. Just because you don't understand this (or ignore it) doesn't make it untrue. It's flawed, just like the Kerry photo. It's understandable and expected for the trolls to use flawed evidence. 5'11" peak is a joke, and you can keep on trying to prove it after obviously first declaring it a fact in your own head.

GUY says on 4/Dec/14


Rodney says on 2/Dec/14

Sorry Guy, hate to break you illusion of fanboy fantasy, but for every photograph you have of Arnold's 'towering' height, there are photographs of him next to people who are actually six foot two plus, and he fails to measure up. It isn't even close. So your vaunted 'proof' showing Arnold's supposed height in photos is no more valid than mine. Ditto your supposed 'proof' of people who have run into him in person. As this thread shows, many have run into him and have been surprised at how much shorter he is in person than listed by his paid publicists (you are an unpaid, we assume, publicist). Your 'objective' view is fractured by fantasy. I understand Arnold works in the illusion industry, but that doesn't mean you have to be deluded by the fantasy factory. There are tall people out there. Arnold isn't now, nor ever, was one of them. But he sold a lot of tickets pretending to be.

----------------------------------

Again, just empty statements. Why don't you post those equal number of photos and see if they pass the test. You're all talk, no action.

So, what's we've got for six one or six two on Arnold is Arnold's word himself (pause for raucous laughter) and the word of a one-time fellow bodybuilder from the 1960's.

6ft1 is more accurate than 6ft2 peak. The man was never 187-188cm. He was 185cm peak. George Bush Senior (6ft2) clearly had him pipped back in a photo taken from 1989 - Click Here He is 180cm - 181cm (max) today.

--------------------------------

I absolutely don't believe Arnold was under 6'1" peak, but he could have had that extra half inch. It's accepted fact he wasn't a strong 6'2", and only rounded up. The photo with Bush Sr you provided displays Arnold around an inch shorter, but there could be some issues. It's outside on the lawn, so terrain might not be level. Bush Sr is wearing a suit, so he likely has dress shoes on, while Arnold likely has sneakers with a smaller heal. It at least portrays Arnold as likely over the 6 foot mark there.



Here's another photo

Click Here

This ones indoors so we can conclude the floor is level, and both are wearing suits with likely similar footwear. They both have similar posture, and both are looking straight across at each other with no camera advantages. Arnold easily looks 6'1.5" there, or if one would like to be conservative, nothing under 6'1".



This is simple well rounded evidence. The 5'10" Arnold trolls will need to downgrade Bush Sr to 5'10.5"-5'11" which is ridiculous and baseless outside of necessity. And everyone Bush Sr was seen with also needs the major downgrade, and everyone they were seen with also needs arbitrary downgrades. So Ronald Reagan now needs to be 5'9"-5'9.5", and everyone he's come into contact with in Politics and Hollywood is automatically 4 inches shorter than they'd be believed to be. That's a lot of work and effort, or.....they could just take things at face value, which eliminates having to make up all those lies.

If you look for "Kerry Von Erich Arnold Schwarzenegger" you can see a picture that can show a very solid two inches difference (at least) between both of them. Arnold posture is good. Von erich seems to be bending a bit like everyones do when you take a picture with some shorter. Von erich billed height in wwe was 6 feet two and I think it was pretty accurate (maybe for one time wwe didnt inflate his height. I would say Von erich was 6 feet 2, like Ferrigno, and Arnold was 1.80 (5,11 peak height). Maybe a shade under 6 feet (1.81 cm,1.82 cm) in the morning.

Is this the photo you're speaking of? I'm glad you've brought this up. Arnold does appear to be quite a bit shorter there. But Kerry is closer to the camera. If you look at the size of Kerry's head compared to Arnold's, it's substantially larger, by at least 4 inches height. That's obvious not the actual case, but a distortion caused by being slightly closer to the camera and a close up shot. You can also tell with Kerry's eye level being not more than an inch over Arnold's but his cranium is quite a bit more. People and objects appear larger the closer they are to the camera.

Sorry Guy, hate to break you illusion of fanboy fantasy, but for every photograph you have of Arnold's 'towering' height, there are photographs of him next to people who are actually six foot two plus, and he fails to measure up. It isn't even close. So your vaunted 'proof' showing Arnold's supposed height in photos is no more valid than mine. Ditto your supposed 'proof' of people who have run into him in person. As this thread shows, many have run into him and have been surprised at how much shorter he is in person than listed by his paid publicists (you are an unpaid, we assume, publicist). Your 'objective' view is fractured by fantasy. I understand Arnold works in the illusion industry, but that doesn't mean you have to be deluded by the fantasy factory. There are tall people out there. Arnold isn't now, nor ever, was one of them. But he sold a lot of tickets pretending to be.

Maybe basile was a guy paid by schwarzy to certify that he was 6'1.5"...the were friends, since what I did know...who will never know...XD

--------------------------------

Actually the back-history reveals this wasn't the case. Vince was never a part of Arnold's entourage, and was strong willed and minded enough to make his own impressions that were either positive or negative of the man. Naturally Email is a relatively modern amenity, so Vince recalled his famed measurement of Arnold to everyone decades after the fact. This meant that Arnold's jackass antics after this occurrence could have weighed easily on how Vince told his story. He was never impressed with Arnold's boorish personality, and his wife saw him as arrogant and obnoxious. Then a few years later Arnold was prominent on a rigged fixed judging panel that actually gave Vince last place at an important competition for him. In the end Vince was honest enough in actual facts to say it as it was, concerning the measurement that day, despite the fact he thought he was an a**hole.

5'11.5 at best nowadays

Ron B. says on 1/Dec/14


I think 6'1" is peak is very reasonable. The guy was tall in his prime.

A 6'1" peak height to a 5'11" present height is not a dramatic height loss by any means. Rather common in fact. He was a body builder and took steroids which can also contribute to height loss.

Dear GUY, not sure what are you trying to prove with that picture... If you can't see that Oliva is basically as tall as 5'8 Zane and Nubret slightly taller (standing closer), making him maybe 5'9-5'9.5, for sure not 6' or 5'11, i don't know what to tell you, LOL... Arnold was 5'11-5'11.5 (around 180cm or a bit bit more) peak not because of that 1972 picture, but because i always knew that he was that height, confirmed by people who met him back in the day, it was nothing shocking... You think that he was taller or much taller, fine, believe what you want...



News flash, Zane was 5'9"-5'9.5" according to the man himself and every published article of his, YET, according to you, he was 5'8". Talk about revisionist of history to fit your biased objective.

He's under 5'11" today, but check back in 20 years for an update ;-)

[Editor Rob: Arnie would rather be dead than be listed at 5ft 10.75!



In fact, he will celebrate beyond the grave when he passes beyond this world as he looks down at celebheights and sees 6ft 1.5 for eternity.]




Fran77 says on 1/Dec/14


If you look for "Kerry Von Erich Arnold Schwarzenegger" you can see a picture that can show a very solid two inches difference (at least) between both of them. Arnold posture is good. Von erich seems to be bending a bit like everyones do when you take a picture with some shorter. Von erich billed height in wwe was 6 feet two and I think it was pretty accurate (maybe for one time wwe didnt inflate his height. I would say Von erich was 6 feet 2, like Ferrigno, and Arnold was 1.80 (5,11 peak height). Maybe a shade under 6 feet (1.81 cm,1.82 cm) in the morning.

A lot of actors either upgrade their heights an inch or two or list their heights in shoes. My most educated guess is that Arnie was 6'1" without shoes and 6'2" with shoes. I am talking about when he was in his prime. There is a photo of him next to James Cameron who also claims 6'2" and Cameron appears taller than Arnie. The difference between them has increased, at an awards show Arnie and Cameron are standing next to each other and Arnold presents him with an award, Arnie is looking up at Cameron. I think his current height is around 5'11" and nothing more. He also was seen with Jim Cavizel who is listed as 6'1.5" and Cavezil appears to be at least 3 inches taller. Its not a huge exaggeration for a 6'1" actor to say he is 6'2" that is only one inch. Its nothing like Stallone, who in his early years claimed to be 5'11" when in reality he was 5'7"!!!

Dmeyer says on 29/Nov/14


Arnie has claimed 6'2 but he himself admited to be only 6'1.75 and was measured 6'1.5 , so over 6'1.5 is unlikely , and in early Movie can look as low as 6'1 , today he is in the 5'11-11.75 zone

Rodney says on 28/Nov/14

While Guy promotes the idea that anyone who doesn't consider Arnold six foot two, peak is psychologically motivated by jealousy, one could equally argue that anyone who promotes the absurd idea, pushed by Schwarzenegger constantly over 30 years, that he was actually six foot two, is motivated, pschologically, by 'hero' (you worship an ACTOR?) worship of the most adolescent kind. In other words, he's six foot two (laughable, then and now) because you want him to be. The self-delusion is yours. Why choose reality and truth (that would take guts) when you can choose fantasy? Five ten, peak. Somewhere just south of that today. Read it and weep, fanboys.

-----------------------------

The difference between what I said, and what you said, is that I have lots of proof and evidence from many different sources and varieties, and you're essentially making up stuff. You seemingly have no knowledge that you need proof and reason to make a claim. None of you care about this. Do you feel comfortable going through life like this? Would you buy a car, have a medical procedure, or take prescription drugs from companies that don't care about proper experiment or facts. Get your brain operated on by a doctor who doesn't care about trial tested medical procedures and balks at any medical training at all.



If you want to say everyone's a fanboy and believes in their heart Arnie was over 6', then that's fine. That might even be true in a lot of cases. But the difference between me and you and all of the other trolls is that my position isn't made and sold ENTIRELY on that. There are still mountains of photos, witnesses, a measurement, etc, that display this in a purely objective way independent of heart and fantasy. You don't, You have nothing, and none of you have shown anything that remotely approaches the volume and quality of your opponents.



What you've described about me is only a childish "I know you are but what am I" table spin. You WANT him to be 5'10" peak (eye roll), but unlike me, you think this is all you need to change proven established facts. Just saying it over, and over, like cheap broken record players, does not make things true. That's delusional, and as thinking goes, moronic. I really don't think any of you really understand that this isn't just a my opinion VS yours debate. Having no appreciation for evidence and reason, it's no wonder you can't digest and appraise it, let alone for your own argument. If you had it your way it would always be your warm feelings VS my warm feelings. Evidence? Why does that matter, and why would that change anything?

He can look anithing about that and maybe can lose even more in the evening: like 177.5cm. He is wearing lifts but it doesnt seems to help him look noticably taller then Sly.

@MJKoP



Come on, the guy himself claimed 186cm during his peak in actin movies. He could have been a 185cm guy too but im sure he was a solid 6'1 at peak so not under the mark 185.42 cm. He certainly never gave me a 188-189cm impression in any of his films or on photo. Alot of people underestimate how big a legit 6'1 guy is, im at best 6'1.25 out of bed and i get guessed 6'1-6'2 alot. His current height is what we need to nail down cause he looks anywhere 180-182cm to me maybe cause of thicker footwear im not sure.

Dear GUY, not sure what are you trying to prove with that picture... If you can't see that Oliva is basically as tall as 5'8 Zane and Nubret slightly taller (standing closer), making him maybe 5'9-5'9.5, for sure not 6' or 5'11, i don't know what to tell you, LOL... Arnold was 5'11-5'11.5 (around 180cm or a bit bit more) peak not because of that 1972 picture, but because i always knew that he was that height, confirmed by people who met him back in the day, it was nothing shocking... You think that he was taller or much taller, fine, believe what you want...

-----------------------------

This is clear case conspiracy theory mentality. To find the truth from mystery, the simpler scenario is usually the safer bet. That's opposed to a position that requires a complex web of constant data manipulation and outlandish reasoning to justify a dream fantasy. The other side has the much, much easier job where the burden of proof flows like water from many different sources that all back up and confirm each other. The other presents glaring contradictions that require a whole lot of hard work. They need to fudge reality, downgrade or upgrade established figures they see fit, and apply that much more hard effort finding that elusive actual proof.



This is the hallmark of conspiracy nut-jobs. Their PVRs are loaded with Ancient Aliens, and Elvis was seen eating lunch with those Aliens at a Burger King in Topeka Kansas. Most people will see this as self defeating, so why bother? Wild crazy complex far fetched scenarios, with no evidence. The alternative, easy simple explanations, with more than ample confirmations. Delusional schizoid VS rational logic. Arnold was really only 5'11" but claimed 6'2" according you? This requires a huge cover-up on a massive scale across the planet. A conspiracy. I guess that's the allure.



Uh-Oh says on 26/Nov/14


At this point, I believe 5'10" and 6'3" are ruled out. He is between 5'11" and 6'2" (180cm-188cm)anything below or above is more than likely false.

Both I and my sister had the honour and privilege of having dinner with Arnold after a body building seminar he gave in Yorkshire in 1981 a few months after his 1980 final Mr Olympia title .I am an average 5ft 9in and I can tell you that Arnold towered over me and was not wearing fancy Holywood shoes. He was a genuine 6ft 2, no question at all. Any by the way, they say don't ever meet your idol, or you will be disappointed. Not so. Over 30 years on I can tell you I have never met a lovelier, kinder or funnier man. One of the highlights of my entire life.



Lipster says on 18/Nov/14

I've met Arnold this weekend in London. There was an evening with him and

you could take pictures with him. I have two different pictures with him. An official one and one after the show. in the official one he is about 8-9cm taller, in the other photo he is about 6-7cm taller than me. We had about the same shoes. Normal dress shoes with maybe 2-3cm sole. In the shoes I was about 174cm in the evening.

So I think that Schwarzenegger with shoes (no idea whether lifts), in the evening, is about 182cm. Without shoes and before going to bed he is about 179cm flat. But he may appear taller than it perhaps is. Actual height is 180 without shoes, peak height is about 184, I think.



Just my experience I wanted to share with you.

Good find! So, we know that he was measured barefoot at night at 6'1.5" in 1969, so it's possible that he was 6'2" earlier in the day. Btw, Dennis Tinero (who was also on that list) was 6'0" and Arnold was noticeably taller than him in all of the pics they've had together.

I agree with everyone who believe that Arnie wasn't over 6ft at his peak. He didn't look 188cm near DeVito at all... And now he lost about 1.5in, that is why hes looking shorter than 182cm Fallon and suspiciously close to 5-8 Stallone in lifts.

HeightcrazyRed6ft says on 22/Nov/14


Yeah Arnie wasnt 62", Lou wasnt 65" - Thats billed heights like wrestling kayfabe.



Young Arnie in Germany gave his height as 185cm, as he was listed by Guinness years later. 185-186cm so a solid 61" is pretty good for Arnies peak.

Lou was 2-2.5" taller unless you count his hair too :)



Vibram says on 21/Nov/14


HE WAS NOT 6ft2 (188cm) PRIME!! Look at him next to a legit 6'2' guy - George Bush Snr (scroll to 4:05 minutes). Click Here He is clearly an inch below Bush Snr, making him 6ft1. Arnold was about 43 years old in that clip so wouldn't of lost height. And who knows, Bush was 65/66 in that clip and may have shrunk to 6ft1.5 (187cm) or so.



I will stick by my guns... Arnold was a weak 6ft1 / 185cm prime (maybe more like 6ft0.75 / 184cm), shrunk to 6ft in his mid-late 50's, and now pushing well into his late 60's he is struggling at 5ft11.



Age 20-49 = 184/185cm (probably rose out of bed a legit 6ft / 185cm)

Age 50- early 60's = 183cm

Age 68 = 180cm.



All up a loss of 2.25 inches or 5cm since his peak - not drastic by any means if you consider his heavy lifting routine, steroids etc, although the regular joe bloggs would of lost about 1.5 (3cm) by 68.

Arnie has claimed that he was 6'2" during his prime years, I think he was counting his height in shoes, he was a big guy in his prime, I think 6'1" is about right for him.



A little fact: In 1969, he was measured barefoot at night by a well respected man in the bodybuilding industry who didn't particularly like Arnold and this man was disputing Arnold's 6'2" claim. Was about 2.5-3" shorter than a 6'4" prime Lou Ferrigno.

That's a 1990's Arnold. Barely anyone is disputing the fact that he was at least 6'1" at that point. We are disputing his current height.

Clooney has claimed that he is 5'11", the thing is that he is always shorter than his co-star Brad Pitt, and there are numerous photographs of the two together, the best one being both of them on a boat barefoot next to each other and Pitt appears to be two inches taller.

Arnie was 6'1" in his prime maybe 6'0.5", but I genuinely believe that he was a minimum 6'1". For him to claim 6'2" is not a huge exaggeration, its only one inch. There are some actors who grossly exaggerate their height such as Sylvester Stallone.

Nothing changed here, always the same fantasy measurements... Nubret 6' foot or Oliva 5'10, mega LOL, just watch the pictures of the Mr Olympia 1972 prejudging, where 5'8-5'9 max Zane is basically as tall as both Nubret and Oliva... Arnold young was always in the 5'11-5'11.5 range, always, it doesn't make him less of an icon and a kick-ass action hero, it is what it is... Today he seems shorter, probably 5'10 max without lifts... In bodybuilding, sports and Hollyweird, measurements are all baloney...

-----------------------------------------------

All I can say is if you're trying to change reality, this is the weakest attempt to disprove heavy strong evidence to the contrary. Here's a good photo from 1972

Click Here

This is evidence. Your so called eye witness memory is make believe fantasy. Nubret definitely looks taller than Oliva standing side by side, and both are taller than Zane. You say Arnold was always in the 5'11" range? Where have you proven this? Oh right, your opinion based on some foggy impression of the '72 Olympia. Real actual photographic evidence we all can see proves you're only a daydreamer making these claims.

rockfellas says on 13/Nov/14

link posted by "Height181" on 11/Nov/14: Sociologist Ralph Keyes has shown that men often claim to be taller than they are. That goes double for celebrities. Men's Health magazine compared claimed heights to actual heights and discovered that Arnold Schwarzenegger was 5-10, not 6-2, that Charles Bronson was 5-7, not 5-11, and Burt Reynolds 5-8, not 5-11.



thanks height181, but to me this is not a surprise. i am not talking only for arnold, i always said that many people in the world tend to lie about their own height, celebs are the strongest liars (most celebs). when i was in the army, doctors told us that when young soldiers were measured under the stadiometer BAREFOOT, 70-80% of them were an inch-an inch and half(2-5cm) shorter than the height listed on their passports!

60-70% of people who claim to be 5ft 11in, they really are 5'9.5"-5'10"(176-177cm) barefoot under the stadiometer. 60-70% of people who claim to be 6ft 1in, they really are 5'11.5"-6ft"(182-183cm) barefoot under the stadiometer (this was arnold's case). 60-70% of people who claim to be 6ft 3in, they really are 6'1.5"-6'2"(187-188cm) barefoot under the stadiometer.



Simple conclusion: few people are legit 5ft 11in(180cm) barefoot, few few people are legit 6ft 1in(185cm) barefoot, few few few people are legit 6ft 3in(190cm) barefoot, guess over 6ft 3in.........

------------------------------------

But Arnold did exaggerate his height. He's quoted as claiming himself to be 6'2" above, and Vince Basile said he responded with 6'2" after asking how tall he was in 1969. Both are technically lies. 6'2" is one of the best heights to be, as it's plenty tall enough to be very content with. Exaggerations usually begin to end at the 6'1-2" range, but it's very common to still embellish a bit to claim a solid 6'2". But to enact some kind of general law of extreme exaggeration with high percentages of guilt, is pure anecdotal opinion. And that Arnold grossly exaggerated rather than rounded up, that's proven on rule of law that EVERYONE in Hollywood does this, is logically flawed. It's just a lazy dishonest excuse to get what you want, which is satisfaction that our favorite Hollywood action stars are no bigger than you or me in real life.

Rodney says on 18/Nov/14


Bodybuilding didn't reduce Arnold from six foot two to five foot ten. You don't lose four inches from lifting weights. Lying, on the other hand, is an exercise that, in the end, invites exposure. In other words, six foot two was always a joke.

So I think that Schwarzenegger with shoes (no idea whether lifts), in the evening, is about 182cm. Without shoes and before going to bed he is about 179cm flat. But he may appear taller than it perhaps is. Actual height is 180 without shoes, peak height is about 184, I think.

He has definitely lost a lot of height with age, probably 5'11" today and maybe slightly less.

Editor Rob: fact of the day - they nicknamed the Gurney after a well known New York fellow who used to get wheeled up and down Manhattan so he would be near his morning height!



Maybe Arnie's got his own version.



C'mon that's Bull****... I tried to look up this "fact" but and came up empty. In fact Gurney was a Englishman, but the gurney was actually patented in Boston, Massachusetts. Nice try Rob, ha ha!

[Editor Rob: the Gurney fact is a celebheights in-joke ;)]

Some good posts on this thread about Arnold's decline with age, compared to other old men who have fared better in their late sixties. My theory (and many of those do I have on every subject) is that bodybuilding is by its very nature harmful, because it involves exposing its adherents to punishment that can't be tolerated beyond youth. Competitive bodybuilding, far from enhancing physical fitness, actually destroys it. You can recover from it's effects just so many times, and then you suffer enduring injuries that stay with you until you die.



Check out the movie The Last Stand, in which there are no extended scenes of Arnold walking. When his character has to be somewhere he just appears on the designated spot, as if someone had wheeled him there on a dolly and stood him up like a refrigerator. I'll bet he's got no hips or knees to speak of these days.

Alucard says: "Nothing changed here, always the same fantasy measurements... Nubret 6' foot or Oliva 5'10, mega LOL, just watch the pictures of the Mr Olympia 1972 prejudging, where 5'8-5'9 max Zane is basically as tall as both Nubret and Oliva... Arnold young was always in the 5'11-5'11.5 range, always, it doesn't make him less of an icon and a kick-ass action hero, it is what it is... Today he seems shorter, probably 5'10 max without lifts... In bodybuilding, sports and Hollyweird, measurements are all baloney... "



And what do we say?



We say, amen, Alucard, you are absolutely right.

Danimal when you claim to unbiased an completely objective it usually means the opposite!!



The fact you think Arnold was as tall as 6ft 2 clearly shows your bias. The man was 5ft 10 peak and here is proof Click Here



Your link is proof? Okayyyyyy there ;-). Again, I could care less if Arnold is 6'3", or 5'8". I'm just calling it as I see it these days.

Arnold is now talking up a sequel to Running Man. No word yet of if he'll choose a walker or a wheelchair.
