How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Height

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.
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". This estimation is shared by respected actor Richard E. Grant who said "I meet the financial and physical 'muscle' of Tinsletown, in the persons of Mr Stallone and Mr Schwarzeneger...both of whom are substantially shorter than six foot."
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.

@Kyuss123,

I have been saying he was around the 6 foot mark ( Prime)for awhile now and yes that Video would seem to support my Theory further. People also act like 6 foot isnt tall enough. Agree, Most modern Males I see in the 20-30 age group are in the 5'11-6'0 range but 30 years ago a legit 6 foot was tall and would stand out. Especially One with Arnol'ds build.

If we look Back at the Kristanna Loken Pics, he was 1.5 inches taller than her and clearny had 1" Shoe advantage so in reality he was around 1/2" taller then her when he was 56 years old making him 5'11ish. ( She is 5'10.5 Tops on this site pictured with Rob). I could see him loosing 3 inches by 56, hell not even now.

He was 5'11ish at age 56 and 6'0-6'0.5 Tops in his youth.

Carl is 2" taller nowadays in most pictures. Richie not sure where you are getting they are the same height . Post it please.

Imo Carl is 6 foot nowadays ( look at his photo on this site) and Arnold is 5'10.5. 6 foot for Arnold's peak height .
Kyuss123 said on 25/Jul/16
Click Here Pause the video on 0.33. Mrs Ball is 5.6-5" tall. Now if you see arnie being 6-2" you are on acid,lots of it. Btw footwear is both flats so its even in that dept. Arnie was never 6-2". Imo here is he just over 6-0.

@ Richie

a. the photo shows Carl Weathers to be taller.

b. the photo (crucially) shows no footwear.

The fanboys will do anything to cling to their illusion that their hero is over six foot . Anything. So we are to believe the five foot ten or so Arnie has shrunk, what, four inches from his billed, play pretend height of six foot two? And, according to the fanboys, we are to believe having open heart surgery reduces your height. Or, wait, is it torn rotator cuff surgery that reduces your height? Oh, now I've got it, it's bodybuilding itself which caused you to shrink when one lifts 'inordinate' amount of heavy weight (yo, if that were true, Kazmaier, 100X stronger than Arnie, would be about four foot two by now). Let's give Arnie the benefit of the doubt and say double hip replacement surgery means height loss, since his lifetime of 'health and fitness' has led to that, but four inches???!!!! The man is not 90. He's in his late 60's. And, to anyone in the bodybuilding world who knows, he hasn't lifted heavy since 1975 (his 1980 title was a one-off out of retirement) and zero heavy lifting since open heart surgery in the mid 1990's. Dream on fanboys. Not only was Arnie nowhere near six foot two in this lifetime, but you swallowed his height lie hook, line and sinker.

Given the staged and scripted fake documentary "Pumping Iron" (known as Pumping Lies in the gym) was shot in order to sell bodybuilding, and, by extension, bodybuilders, it would be a mistake to take anything, including billed heights, at face value from it. This 'documentary' does not once mention the word, 'steroids,' since it is intent on pushing propaganda rather than face facts. Arnold can pretend he was once six foot two. And Serge can pretend he was once five eleven. But playing pretend does not make it fact.
Even if playing pretend made one of them a lot of money. The truth is both actors relied on fantasy rather than fact to line their pockets.


A) you need help
B) in the anniversary edition the commentary at the end there's a 3 minute clip from Arnold in which he says he and everyone took steroids because it wasn't a big deal because it wasn't illegal. It was common place. and everyone would talk about it openly just as they did about nutrition and workouts. It's in the DVD. Watch it
C) even if I agreed with you, you still need help. It's not that serious. That only thing I wish that wasnt pretend was that you were actually getting a kick out of the site and not trying to make a campaign ad for the 2016 presidency with every comment. Associating a word like propaganda which was something used to describe communist political strategy with a bodybuilding documentary basically says it all.

richie said on 24/Jul/16
There is a very recent photograph of Schwarzenegger locked in Predator style hand wrestle with fellow actor Carl Weathers, and the two actors were practically identical in height and Weathers is one of the few old school 70's actors who does not appear to have lost height and his estimated stature of 6'1" is very plausible, what does that tell you about Arnie's height ???? The Austrian actor is still over 6', not quite as tall as 30 years ago but certainly not as low as 5'11"
Kyuss123 said on 24/Jul/16
Arnie was a 6 footer peak. My guess 6-0.5 Max. Looks every bit 6-2" in terminator 1 and 2..........In biker books that is.

Of course arnie can look 179-80 bit with good posture still looks 5 ft 11,25-11,5 , i have seen pics of him with friend of mine this year h looked solid 182cm


He does look to have good posture with Robs 176-177cm friend and looks max 3cm taller.
Lynn said on 21/Jul/16
About Nubret I am going to add that is pretty normal for a REAL 176 cm guy round up to 180 cm.

For istance I was 176 cm in the Army , 177 cm at the medical office but I have 180 cm on my Identity Card.
I confirm the feeling that Nubret was no taller than me.
Mike said on 21/Jul/16
It's common for body builders to shrink as much as a few inches. I personally shrank 3/4" due to 3 herniated discs. It happened from lifting inordinately large weights. I find it appalling that people still feel like they have the right to pick on others. I assume they have shortcomings that attack their psychological well being and this is the cause. I hope they find help and feel better without causing others disharmony.

@ Danimal,

You really think Arnold Lost 3" of Height? I agree with your 5'10.5" Estimation for his height now, but 6'1.5 as a peak height? I doubt this man lost 3" of hiight.

Keep In Mind guys like Prowse and Hogan have lost around 3" but they were much taller than Arnold to start with. Average guy Arnold age looses around 1". Arnold to loose an extra 2" more than the average guy is a little hard to believe. I can see Maybe a 1.5" Loss for Arnold, which would put him at my 6 foot peak estimate.


Agree with Danimal roddy piper was a real 6'1 and went all the way down to 5'9.5. It's not common to lose that much height but it's also not common to have multiple surgeries on areas of the body that contribute solely to posture and height. but Check the rap sheet of surgeries and where on the body they had them and it's more then possible. The Arnold today is a shell of the man in he 70's and 80's. He looks like a relative of himself, an old uncle from Austria. Personally can't stand the guy but height is height.

Nubret wasn't 6ft, hes got also 5'10" listings
Imo he was 179 +- 1cm

Nubret used to post on getbig.com and he stated that his true height used to be 5'11" even though he was listed at 6'0" (in Pumping Iron).

@ Jack Daniil Ok that's pushing it a little far... Because then Ferrigno would be just 6'1 back then,whereas he looked around 188 next to Rob,atleast 40 years LATER... I don't think time-travelling was possible yet,even if now,to support a height argument...lmaao

He always was 5 ft. 10 since 1965...

@ cobra I think they look nearly the same height,maybe Arnold looks 1-2cm at most smaller than Ventura,but we cant see footwear and posture so it's a tough call...

Ventura looks a bit taller,but its hard to judge because you cant see footwear or the ground there standing on.

@ Lynn How tall are you??Btw i think he was around 184 at his peak,too.Basically you could realistically argue he could look anywhere between 182-185cm at his peak with people of pressumably known height.
AlexItaly said on 13/Jul/16
Arnold was a very strong 6'1 at his peak, not reaching the full 6'2 unless, maybe, just out of bed. Anything between 186 and 188 is possibile for him in the 80ies. Nothing less, nothing more.
Lynn said on 12/Jul/16
I saw Nubret at a seminar in Italy when he was 48.
It would sound strange to you if I would say he was 176 cm flat?
I used to think Arnold was 184 cm peak evening, now I am sure we was a weak 6' peak...exactly 4'' more than Frank Zane who used to compete in the class up to 173 cm...in other word Zane was a very very weak 5-9.
Johan said on 12/Jul/16
Those aren't inch styles more like 2cm tops. So that guy is maybe 179-180cm in those shoes. Arnold looks around 186cm there if that guy is really a proper 178 cm 5ft 10 guy.

Rob, how about you comment on the picture with Rolando Dantes who is 5'10.

Is this not enough proof that he was nowhere near 187cm peak? I am really
interested in your comment Rob.
Editor Rob: he can look nearly 3 inches taller, plus whatever the sneaker gives...so I wouldn't say he was far off 6ft 1.5 if that guy was 5ft 10 barefeet

And imo he would be the same height as that guy today.
truth said on 11/Jul/16
His pre-fame height was a strong 6'1 or no less than 185.5-186 cm at his low and very likely around 186.5-187 cm so he was honest, of course in Hollywood guys at that height would easily get billed at 188-191 cm, just like I would be billed at 182 cm at 178 cm.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jul/16
At peak was probably 189-190cm range in shoes

He has a massive collection of cowboyboots and I know from experience they are 5cm minimum so I don't doubt that at all Rampage. He was most likely 190-191cm in any one of his 100 odd pairs.
Jordan87 said on 11/Jul/16
Him looking 5'11.5 tops with proven 5'10-5'10.5 loken in 2003( with a 1" shoe advantage) rules out 6'2 for me. 56 year old man doesn't loose 3" or even 2". He was more a 6 footer , not even 6'1.

Alex said on 9/Jul/16
Arnold "changed" his height when came into Hollywood. Surely in all his movies he wore lifts. Then, at the end of his career as actor, all of the sudden he became shorter. I agree with Miko, very rarely he looked a real 6'2, most of the time in his movies he seemed aroud 186 cm, that he reached with a little help.

The issue with Arnold is that he looked under his listed height a lot more than he looked over it in his prime.

Very rarely did he ever look a full 6'2. He looked around 6'1 consistently in his prime. Today he's about 5'11. A 2 inch loss at near 70 with a lot of injuries and bumps along the way isn't too bad I guess.

6ft.05 peak.In a good pair of shoes with a little bit of help inside,he could pull off looking 6ft3.
Alex said on 4/Jul/16
I'm pretty sure that in his youth he wasn't more than 182 or 183 cm. Now, with his age his spine is shrunk a little, so let's say around 179-180 cm, and maybe he doesn't use lifts anymore. Most probably years ago during movies, he was used to wearing lifts in his shoes, as a politician said some years ago about him. If he was 182-183 cm, was easy to reach 186 cm of height with lifts.
Ice said on 3/Jul/16
Today : 182 cm
Peak : 187 cm

I totally agree . He did look tall in most of his movies , I would have prob believed 6'3" at times .

@MJKoP

So your saying he lost 3-3.5 Inches of Height? Keep Dreaming. He was a 6 footish guy in his youth. If you believe 6'2 then your in the Number 2 slot next to Charlie who says Arnold was 5'8.5 in his Prime.

The Man Is proven to be 5'10-5'10.5 nowadays. If people think he is was shorter than this in his prime they are warped. Also Added to the warped group is people who think he shrunk almost 4" from his prime height.

He's currently in the hospital so I will hold until he gets better.
Not sure if he will reply .

6'1.5 in his prime and just under 6' now...
Jon said on 27/Jun/16
Arnold's Terminator 2 co-star Robert Patrick stated that Arnie was 6'1" when he and Arnold starred in T2, I think that estimate seems right, T2 was filmed 26 years ago, Arnold was 43 years old, so I doubt he really lost height at that age, most people start losing height after age 60. Robert Patrick was a little shorter, around 5'11.5". Most actors usually state their height in shoes, while athletes state their height barefoot, so it was not a huge exaggeration for Arnold to say he was 6'2" during his peak years, that being said, he lost some height as he got older. When he was photographed with George W Bush, the two looked around the same height, so today he is probably around 5'11.5".
Jordan87 said on 27/Jun/16
@Charlie,

5'8.5 peak and 5'7 now? Which is why he looks 5'10.5 in 2014 with Joe Mangeneillo. Nice Try at trolling however. And If it is not an Attempt to troll and you are that off then please get counselling.......NOW! Don't wait.

@Bransback,
He was looking around 5'10.5 in 2004 ( Age 56ish) with 5'10ish Kristanna Loken ( He was 1.5" taller with a Proven 1" Heel Advantage) Placing him at 5'10.5-5'10.75 in mid 50's. The Average male looses 1/2" to 3/4" by that age, usually not any more. Say he was a rare one, and Lost something like 1.5" still would put him just a bit over 6 foot. I cannot see him loosing 3"-4" of height, NO WAY ( He is around 5'10-5'10.5" nowadays at best in his late 60's) He cannot have lost 3" or more.
Peter 179cm said on 27/Jun/16
@ charlie Ok,that's major trolling...Arnie currently at 5'7?? LOLOL!! The lowest one could argue for Arnold's height nowadays is 5'10,and 182-183cm(6'0) at his peak...And even that's an underestimated guess.
Bransback said on 27/Jun/16
Im so confused by the estimates of 5ft11-6ft range at peak. Being completely realistic and objective, Arnold was a tall proportionate guy in his 20-30's, and if anybody on here takes an interest in weight training or bodybuilding, you would find, the illusion he gave was that of a tall man with an aesthetic look. Okay, an illusion differs too reality sometimes yes, but analyse bodybuilders 5ft11, then look at the frame of Arnold. Described as 6ft2,in the world of bodybuilding it was clear he was considered as a guy around that range, 5ft11-6ft back then is complete nonsense, however now, off course he looks a few inches shorter. I have no qualms believing he was measured 6ft1.5-75 at his complete peak, however offcourse a 6ft1 guy still gives off such a tall look, i mean 5ft10-11 peak ?

charlie said on 26/Jun/16
I don't feet he is 5' 11 not after viewing many of his photo's online especially with Tom Cruise who is 5'7.Not after watching his appearance of himself posing as a Mexican going into a California Gym and you can clearly see the other guys are like 5 inches taller than him and a male customer was at the front desk registering and he looked 8. tall next to Arnold when in fact the guy was probably 6'. The guy pretty well dwarfed Arnold.Many actors today will wear 4 inch shoe lifts when they are making a movie.and we view them at work and we automatically come to the conclusion that the height in the movie is their real height. Then you meet them in person to find they are 5 inches shorter than you are.For Years when i was a teenager in the 1980's i thought Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) was a giant. He looked tall in the movies. Came across tall. Little did i knew back then he had shoe lifts on and in fact was as tiny as Tom Cruise.I myself am 5'10 (Flat feet. I can wear 3 inch shoe lifts. 3 pairs of socks walk outside and have people think im 6'2. ha. That is why it is not a good idea to compare an actors height just by how they appear on a movie. How they appear in one movie may be completely different than how they appear in another movie. Also to add that special effects equipment these days can edit an actor and make him or her 10 inches taller than they really are and they will look 10 inches taller. Watch the movie the Green Mile. The special effects crew did a spectacular job and making the Black actor Michael Duncan appear 7' tall when in fact he was probably no taller than Tom Hanks height.Honey i shrink the kids is another example.Ant-man and so on. Arnold in his prime was probably 5'8.5. Today he is probably 5'7 according to the photos.

I think a peak height of 6'1.5" is absolutely spot on.In the movie Pumping Iron, Arnie was a fraction taller than Mike Katz who was 6'1" and had a good inch on Ken Waller who was just 6'. Clearly lost height today and is probably around the 6' mark but 70/80's was definitely a strong 6'1"

---

He's only around 5'11" - 5'11.5" now (depending on how much height he has in reserve for a measurement) but I agree that 6'1.5" seems reasonable enough back in his prime. I definitely wouldn't give him the full 6'2" but somewhere around 6'1.25" - 6'1.5", sure.

Arnold was probably close to 6'2'' range in cowboy boots in his prime
Sactown said on 26/Jun/16
He's no more than 5'11. When he was Governor everyone that saw him was astonished at how short he was. When I was a kid, I legit thought he was at least 6'2-6'3, but hey many stars look different in person. Some better and some worse.
Peter 179cm said on 25/Jun/16
@ Harold Only thing is: I still think Arnie was definitely taller than 5'10 or 5'11 in his peak bodybuilding days...Not saying i believe his 6'2 claims,but in my book he was definitely 6'0-6'1 range at his tallest,184cm which is 6'0.5 is the best and safest call for his peak,IMO.But each one to their own, i guess...Nowadays,it's pretty obvious he's 180cm max,and more like 178-179cm range as evidenced in pics with celebrities of known(??) height.But as you said,it's showbiz and Arnie the one promoting the shows lool,so there you have it.
miko said on 24/Jun/16
The more fan photos I see/gym ones where Arnie is in flat soled footwear, he is really looking no more than 5'11.

Its been quite a while since he's been looking a six footer.
Frank R said on 24/Jun/16
All of the T-800, model 101s are 6'6". Arnold, on the other hand, is around 5'11" at age 68. In 'T-2: Judgment Day', you can tell that Arnold is wearing lifts by the thickness of his boots in that film. In the bar scene as the "naked T-800" he is noticeably shorter than several of the bikers he beats up. Then he takes one of the biker's clothes, and for the rest of the film, he appears taller. You can really see the thickness of the boot soles in the scene where he meets Sarah Connor's Latino friends in the middle of the Mexican desert.

FP said on 24/Jun/16
Peter - indeed. Specific height therefore becomes fairly meaningless. Makes you wonder why some people get so rabid and hissy about proving/disproving it to the slightest fraction of an inch. I couldn't tell you exactly how tall my oldest friends are, but I'm aware of their general size, and also that can change depending on their footwear, hairstyle, posture from day to day. I know this a height site, but still wonder why people take it so damned seriously, not to mention personally!

Peter: "Most people actually do measure their height in shoes it seems...And if you deny that,then you're probably unaware of this fact.Either that or they just add 1-2 inches to their actual barefoot height:1 inch for shoes,an additional inch for perspective since it's very difficult to actually spot an inch in person...Trust me,it's not that easy with differing footwear,hairstyles,body and head structure etc..."

NBA lists their players height without shoes during the Draft, then measures them in Shoes, and lists that height as the primary. With Hollywood I would imagine the same with most of these guys. I really liked the terminator Movies and though Arnold was a good fit for the role without a doubt, I never saw him as much of an good Actor so I feel he needed his Physique to "sell Himself" and being taller is always a plus in that situation.

Currently I feel 5'11.5 to 6'0 is the range I would go by for him as a younger man. Under 5'11 for a Peak height I dont think is possible nor do I think 6'1.5 is as well.

@Peter 179cm: As many women lie about their weight, many men lie about their height (actually, lying about one's height is not gender specific). Meaning it seems to be something of a human attribute to lie about one's height (though how many people, other than Charles Barkley, downgrade their own height?). Given it's a human attribute to lie about one's height (especially five foot something guys wanting to be six foot even or six foot plus), the question then is, 'why would anyone care about Arnie lying about his own height?' The answer, I suggest, is in 1. the sheer outrageousness of his claim (how many fake inches does he give himself for his pretend height, three? four? and 2. Arnie himself dictating and demanding a public declaration of his pretend ("billed") height. Bodybuilding sites from 20 plus years ago pegged him around five foot ten. That was 20 plus years ago. Given his diminution due to aging, the entire 6 foot plus canard is exposed for what it always was: fraud and one more show biz scam. For the last fifty years, he worked very hard to appear larger than life in order to sell his 'brand', even if that meant fudging the truth about his verticality when displaying, long ago, his horizontality. The superhuman shtick worked much better when he was larger than life in both height and breadth rather than just breadth, so height was added and padded from day one. In the bodybuilding world, no one could tell because the industry standard is to lie about the heights of the competitors in order to 'sell the sport' (does anyone really want to know it's a 'sport' for midgets?). And in that world, Arnold stuck out, among other reasons, for not being short (compared to other bodybuilders). But off the bodybuilding stage, it was obvious that the cowboy boots and lifts made up for what wasn't there: true height. Well, he's the first to admit he's spent his life as a showman, which is, basically, a salesman. But if you fall for a salesman's pitch, you may well be a sucker.

Jervis: "Why would someone measure themselves in shoes and use it as their actual height?"

Because there's money to be made in appearing larger than life. This is an action hero's bread and butter. Stallone and Cruise do everything they possibly can to appear larger than they are. It's what their audience craves. Anyone looking for honesty in show business must look somewhere else. Fantasy is not fed by fact. Misdirection (cowboy boots, lifts, and repeated lies) means money. As Maximus, the Gladiator, asks the crowd: "Are you not entertained?"
Editor Rob: there is the truth in that celebrities have an image to maintain and spend a lot of money with PR teams to ensure it's the best image.

I was one of a number of journalists and tradesfolk invited to the launch of Mr Schwarzenegger's watch brand at Baselworld early last year. Though I only got to see him sitting down I was near enough to say this with certainty - he is not a small man. His wrists were as thick as my forearms and his fingers were twice as thick as mine. I would find it hard to believe that he was much less than 6 foot tall.
mrbobh5344 said on 21/Jun/16
Agree with below comment. Just watched The Last Stand.... Arnie is about 2 inches shorter than Rodrigo Santor... and about an inch or so below Johnny Knoxville. Arnold was about 66 when he made Last Stand. We all shrink some with age. Gravity!! :(

Why would someone measure themselves in shoes and use it as their actual height? It's like weighing yourself fully clothed and using that as your weight.Get a 6ft.5 guy put him in 1 inch heel Shoes with a 2 inch lift inside and you have a guy of 6ft.5 looking 6ft3.5 in shoes,if you minus the 1 inch heel you think he is 6ft2

I looked through all his height claims mentioned on this page,and honestly,it's not totally impossible he has actually been measured at those marks...Basically, i would say he has indeed measured near 6'2 and 6'1,but definitely NOT barefoot.
For example, his 2013 self-stated claim of 184cm (6'0.5) could really have been in dress shoes or in one of his classic boots...So in reality,he would have been anywhere between 180-182cm flat in 2013,so a strong 5'11 just like Rob lists him as( or atleast close enough)...This goes for all of his claims throughout the years,IMO.As of now,he might be 5'11.5 in footwear,so 5'10-5'10.5 flat is still a possibility,maybe 5'10.75 on a very good day,definitely not under 5'10 though...

England79 said on 17/Jun/16
When the calls go out in the trade press/casting websites for stand-ins for Arnold, they ask for men between 5'10" - 6'1". That would suggest his current height is midway.
Harold said on 17/Jun/16
Yes, England79, your words, 'the illusion of his height' are very well chosen. We've had explanations before relating to his supposed 'shrinkage' (deadlifting! steroids! open-heart surgery! shoulder surgery!) and now it's posture. What's next, wait, 'camera angles' or 'lighting'. Let's see, it must be aging. Which is why Schwarzenegger has shrunk, what, four or five inches from his bragged and repeatedly stated height of six foot two. Meanwhile, of course, LIam Neeson, in his late 60's, has shrunk, what, one-half inch? Oh, that's right, a 'lifestyle' of 'health and fitness' is really hard on the body. Yes, Arnie (look at him today) is a great, great example of 'health and fitness.' Look and learn. Or laugh.

I'm 5'10" dead on and met Arnold at a couple of speaking engagements he has done in England over the past couple of years. He's a couple of inches taller than me. Any talk of him being below my height is utter nonsense, and I'm sure even without footwear he'd still be above that. As other people have noted, his posture - and therefore the illusion of his height - varies dramatically.

@Jordan87

The smallest I have seen him look in his prime is 6'0.5" next to fellow bodybuilders. However even that mark is questionable when you look at the facts.

He was eye to eye with confirmed 6'1" Carl Weathers.

He was less than an inch shorter than Jeff Bridges barefoot. Looked like Jeff had a 2cm sneaker. There would be a hair in it.

Robert Englund is also in Stay Hungry ( the rub down guy for Arnie) Rob has him at 5'9.5" peak and now 5'8.5". Even if he was just a solid 5'9" guy he looks almost 4 inches smaller than Arnold and again Arnie is barefoot.

In old gym pics he has 4 solid inches on 5'9" listed Stallone, today with equal footwear it looks more 3 inches. Again proving that Arnold has lost an additional inch over Sly.

His current height is hard as he doesn't have great posture at times. I have sometimes wondered if he is now 5'10.5" as he can look it at times. Then at other times he can pull off looking a decent 5'11" so my guess would be 5'11" flat.

He did look around 180-181 cm with confirmed 6'1" + Evander Holyfield but I think even 5'11.25" is a bit much consdiering he can look a good 2 cm shorter.

@HeightcrazyRed6ft

Yeah which made me think 6'1" peak as thats 185.4 cm so maybe he measured between the two marks. I also heard a 185cm claim but its disappeared from the net it seems ;)
Jordan87 said on 7/Jun/16
@GP,

No the picture with Rob is not proof of that. The top picture is where they have the same shoes. If your trying to prove she is 5'11 you would stay away from that picture b/c she is not 5'11 in it.
zillthepill said on 7/Jun/16
Met him face to face at a political-fund rally in 2004 (funny story, actually). I'm around 6'3"--he had to look up at me . I was kind of surprised. 5'11" at the most.

@johan

"He hasn't lost 3 inches of height imo. He went from 6'1" -185-186cm to 5'11"-180cm as of 2016. "

6'1 to 5'11 is still Believable in my opinion I'm not totally dead-set against you on that. Also if you look at the pics I posted showing a 66 year old Arnold looking 5'10.75 with Mangeillo it would almost line up with your Estimate of 6'1 shrinking to 5'11 so we are not far off. Arguing about Loken's picture aside If you read my posts I still put Arnie's Range from 5'11.5 -6'0.5 with 5'11.5 as a more conservative mark.

Its hard for my to really Zero In on what he was in his prime, I'm putting time into this particular Page b/c I want to rule out the people who say he was 5'10 and 5'11 as Peak Heights which I deem Impossible, as well as the 6'2.

As I mentioned in Past Posts I work with a Guy that had Met Arnold in 1993 around the planet Hollywood area ( He does have a pic but not great for judging height they both leaning into the picture with my Coworkers daughters) and said when Arnold did stand up he was " Almost his height". I happen to know my Coworker is between 6'0.5-6'1. Arnold's footwear at the time? Who Knows but I doubt the man was under 5'11.5 in his prime. Again, I'm using that as a Conservative number to rule out the 5'10 and 5'11 Folks. I feel again, 6'0 is a solid mark to go with.
GP said on 6/Jun/16
Loken is 180cm/5'10.75-5'11". I know this for a fact because I used to be in acting class with her years ago. The photo with Rob is proof of that also. Now about the Arnold photo, that photo is from at least 10 years ago, when Arnold was actually 182, he has 3-4 cm advantage over her shoes also counting his hairstyle. Nowadays he is a 178-179 man, I see him all the time in the gym.
Johan said on 6/Jun/16
@Bright Dawn

At the top of this very page - "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"

So he thought he was 6ft.05 in 2013. Americans usually give shoe measurement so that puts him at 5ft 11.5 in 2013 going purely by his claim.

Steriods do lead to health problems or are you saying they don't get heart attacks etc? My experience says otherwise. Health problems can lead to all kinds of other issues and also because of the lifestyle ie..lifting far too much weight over long periods. For instance I know a guy who no longer can lift at all, his back is completely screwed he now does appraisals and consultant work instead of his old job.

@Jordan87

You can believe what you want, I don't see 5'10" at all as she isnt even standing up straight. I also question how much hair you actually think she has? Rob has said before that the app is a guide, its not perfect by any means. Otherwise Bennedict would be 5ft 10.5 and not the 5ft 11.5 guy that Rob saw. .

He hasn't lost 3 inches of height imo. He went from 6'1" -185-186cm to 5'11"-180cm as of 2016.

Pushing 70yrs old with his lifestyle losing 2 inches from his peak. Nothing incredible about it.

Jordan87 said on 5/Jun/16
I myself did not meet Loken, Rob is not a liar and if she looked over 5'10 thats totally believable. I was going by a Picture where I continue to say she looks closer to 5'10 than 5'11 in. ( The top Picture, with even shoes)

Apparently to people like Johan, hair counts as actual height, and in the picture it clearly shows Loken at 5'10.75 with her actual hair so Johan continue thinking that way by all means and ignoring that height app. that Rob has in pictures. Your hopeless and have no credibility since you are clearly ignoring facts shown in pictures right in front of you.

I still refuse to believe Arnold lost 3 inches of height. Id say its more 1.5" looking at his background. He is 5'11.5 in the picture with 5'10 Loken and he has .75"-1" heel advantage putting him, again, at around 5'10.5-5'10.75 ( yes without his spiked hair Johan, since I know in your mind that counts as height) in his mid 50's so id stil say he was a solid 6 foot guy. His range 5'11.5-6'0.5.
Bright Dawn said on 5/Jun/16
@Johan, Steroid abuse is a norm among all pro-bodybuilders and even among some self-obsessed amateur bodybuilders. No one loses their height with steroid and the negative effects of steroid abuse don't have any scientific correlation with "height loss". I cannot really comment about the "surgeries" that Arnold have gone through and their correlation with his "mysterious height loss", at least he himself has never brought up this issue because he still claims he is 6' 1'', so supposedly any "mysterious surgeries" haven't taken any toll on his height according to his own height related claims.

One thing I noticed is in publicity shots he's often wearing (if not cowboy boots) prada brogues with the 1.5 inch + wedge heels some of which have a fairly padded insole. A one inch lift in those and he gains a fair bit of height. He only usually wears flat soled shoes in leisure time.
jervis said on 4/Jun/16
5ft10.5 maybe?
Johan said on 4/Jun/16
She even looks over 5'10" in the pic. The one where she does look around 5'10" she has a solid 0.5 inch footwear disadvantage.

The lowest I could buy for her is 5'10.75" approx. Thanks Rob for verifying it. Yes Im sure Rob was out an inch in person...

Comparing Arnold to your average 55 yr old is ridiculous. If you need the reasons why explained to you then there is really no point in further discussion. Fanatic Bodybuilder using steriods for years on end and multiple back and neck surgeries. Yes your average guy has that by 55 dear oh dear.

Exercising in itself is healthy but steriods are far from that.

We have seen enough barefoot pics of him in his prime and also in "Stay Hungry" he is barefoot next to a legit 6'1" range Jeff Bridges and looks around 1 inch smaller. Take away the shoes and Bridges might be only 1/4 inch taller or even the same.

So I guess Bridges was also 5'11" range peak? haha

Even although he still looks very similar to Garrett ( a good 6'1" range guy ) in Tron Legacy.

Carry on though .

Jordan87 said on 3/Jun/16
Harold, Bright Dawn.

I am coming to the same conclusions as you both however it would seem In different ways and it has to do with Loken's height.

So Vega's picture Arnold is actually 1.5 Inches taller than Loken ( with his 1" Shoe Advantage"). What I disagree with most people on this Site is that Loken is not 5'11. She is 5'10 in the picture with Rob. So that being said, Arnold's 1.5" Advantage ( not including spikes-disagree) turns into .75" taking out his heel Advantage making him .75" taller than 5'10 Loken ( yielding 5'10.75 in his mid 50's, and 5'11.5 in his prime).

1. Arnold is taller then Loken by 1.5 inches if you take a straight line across the page from the top of both their heads.
2. Loken is not 5'11, she is 5'10.
3. Taking out Arnold's 1" footwear he is around 3/4" taller than Loken.
4. The average 55 year old should have lost around .6" as per stats given. Arnold was not more than 6'0 in his prime. Again, I bank on 5'11.5.
jervis said on 3/Jun/16
I disagree,the photo sent by Vegas,Loken has about half an inch added to her 5ft11 height making her 5ft11..5,Arnold looks about 2.5 inches taller,making him 6ft.2 in shoes,his shoe heels look about 1inch tick,maybe a bit more,making Arnold 6ft.5 or 6ft 1 depending on how tick Arnold shoe heels are.
Harold said on 3/Jun/16
Bright Dawn: Amen. You are %100 right.

Atlanta gman: Let's say all of us pitch in to buy the man a 'manzier' or a 'bro,' still what would we do about the Cankles? Pity all that money spent on plastic surgery was concentrated above the neck.
Bright Dawn said on 2/Jun/16
After his picture with Loken posten by Vegas where Arnold has one inch footwear advantage he still looks the same height as loken if we ignore his 1.5'' hair spikes. This means that Arnold was actually half an inch shorter thatn Loken in 2003. So there should not be any surprise why people around that time thought (during California governorship) thought that he was short as 5' 10.5'' would appear short with his heavy and wide body structure. I think Arnold was never ever above 5' 11.5''- 6' 0'' at any stage in his life, 5' 11.5'- 6' 0'' will be the upper most Max. limit to his genuine height probably during his 20s and 30s. His claims of 6' 1'' or 6' 2'' peak height are just nonsense.

And for those who say that bodybuilding reduces your height, it is impossible since Arnold was not a professional Olympic weight lifter , he was merely a body builder and they don't lift heavy weights the way professional weight lifters do. Moreover Bodybuilding actually improves your height by getting rid of slouching, so if anything bodybuilding has a positive effect on your height rather than negative. I have never ever come across any person in my life who lost their height due to bodybuilding but rather I always found a positive improvement in their heights. So this argument of Bodybuilding being a source to reduce your height is totally crap and nonsense as well.

I just returned from a family trip to the beach in St. Barts, where we had the opportunity to hang out with Arnold on the beach. First he doesn't look that great without makeup, etc. We saw him as much shorter than expected. He was barefoot. I am 6'4" and I was looking straight down at the top of his head.. Strange that he looks so much taller in movies. Lastly, I think a manzier is in order for him, you know what I mean?

Nice find, Arnie doesnt look more than 511.5" there.

He clearly has lost a bit since then and is about 510.75" today.

Peak, I wouldnt go under 185cm evening

Jervis,

Rob said she gave a 5'11 ipressions but she does not look 5'11, she looks 5'10, even 5'9.75. Just look at the picture on this site, and then come back and say she still looks 5'11.

Harold,
I cannot believe at 6'2, especially since there is evidence he is from 5'10 to 5'11 nowadays, even 3" to shrink is crazy. Average person by his age looses around 1.25". Says he is more and lost 1.5" he would be around 6'1 peak at the very MAX.

Im still looking into the Loken Pics that Vegas Found of Arnold looking 1.5" taller than 5'10 Loken with a 1" heel advantage at age 56. To me it would put him at around 5'11.5 in his prime which I still am sticking by. I believe he was from 5'11 to 6'0 in his prime. No Way 5'10, but no way 6'2.

You guys should really take a look at the Loken Page. In Both Photos, Including the one where she has similar Footwear to Rob, the top of her head actually dips below 5'10. Her Hair is at the 5'11 mark but she clearly is not even over 5'10. Look Above. Use the App on the page. She is not over 5'10.

Click Here

If we go by the Picture posted by Vegas ( Good FInd) see above it Shoes Arnold and Loken on even ground when Arnie was 55 years old. Arnie has her by 1.5" but has 75" more footwear easily so In reality if they were barefoot Arnold would have her only by .75 inches there. I dont not feel she is over 5'10 ( She is clearly not 5'11 in her picture with Rob-The one again where they had the same footwear) making Arnold 5'10.75 around his mid 50's.

A Man near his mid 50's ON AVERAGE loos around .6" Which would yield a 5'11.5 Arnold in his prime. I doubt the man lost 3" of Height, especially by his mid 50's.

People shrink but 5cm isn't too much or is it normal? "

It's not normal. But he was a bodybuilder after all and an very ambitious one. Lifting tons of weight over a long period of time won't do you any favors for your spine and joints. Well, what goes around, comes around.

Yes, Ajax, so unbelievable that it is not, in fact, believable. So exceptions are made for the fanboys to believe it: "deadlifting stress to the spine!"; "bench presses reduce your height!" "shoulder/hip/knee operations reduce your height!"; "a lifetime of health and fitness reduces your height!" It is a fact that age does reduce your height. No argument there. But four or more inches before the age of 70? it is also a fact that lying about your peak height can also come back to haunt you. Take your pick. Given the man's track record of proven lies, please. Peak six foot two is a joke.
jervis said on 1/Jun/16
Rob met her and judged her to be 5ft11,so that's good enough for me.Arnold is defiantly the taller of the two,so that puts to bed the 5ft10 5ft11 peak height estimats.

I've seen a recente pic of Arnold with football soccer Player Alessandro Del Piero.Alessandro Del Piero is measured 173cm barefeet and Arnold looks only 2.5 or 2.75 taller than him. Arnold is no more than 5'11" these days. I think He was a strong 6'1" in His prime.
Jordan87 said on 31/May/16

Loken with 1.5-2" Heel Advantage Id Say they are the same height for what it is worth in this picture. This is a good shot where footwear is visible as well as both having equal posture. Loken doesn't pass over 5'11 on the height chart on this site with Rob. More 5'10ish but even so I think Arnold is a good 2" taller than here judging by this above pic I posted. He was a good 5'11.5-6'0 foot at age 53-54 when T-3 was made in 2003. Average 50 something year old looses about 1/2" by their early 50's. I dont think he could have been under 6'0 in his prime.
Editor Rob: remember the one time I seen her she had somewhere between 0.4-0.5 inch less footwear, the second time it was more or less equal.

Loken is listed at 5'11 but j don't quite see it. Is use 5'10 as a conservative listing.

My point is his pics near her should rule out 5'10 and 5'11 peak heights . He was taller .
Jordan said on 30/May/16
Elias ,

Loken is not 5'11 she is about 5'10 with rob. 6'1.5 I still think is less a chance than 6'0.5 as a peak. Arnold is 5'10-5'11 today I can see a 3" loss on him. Maybe 2 tops which is why I put him at a solid 6'0 for a conservative peak.

Loken is actually 3 in taller than Rob here on the site. She os listed at 5'11" -180cm. Nice pics though and proves that Arnie was easily more than 5'11" at peak. Sorry Sorbo and Harold.

Above pic proves he is tall. Loken is 5'10 ( Check this Site) no less, and Arnold is 1/2" taller than her in her HEELS. Yes he has Cowboy boots but If you cant tell that she has the CLEAR Heel Advantage from this Pic, then I dont know what to say. He would have her by Two Inches clear in they had equal Footing. He was a good 6 feet tall and this was around 2003 when he was early 50's. Maybe he was around 1/2" taller in his prime.

Click Here

Above, Again. Arnie in Dress Shoes, Loken in heels, they are more or Less the same height. How could Arnold Be 5'10 and Loken be 5'10 if he is her height when she is wearing heels? In Some of the Pics from the event he is actually 1/2" taller than her. Line him up with her Picture on this site where she is a MIN of 2" taller then Rob and you get a 6 foot Arnold. Not a 6'2 Arnold, or a 5'10 Arnold.

Slimeball,

Carl Did play for the raiders in the early 70's I believe until his knee got blown out. Carl is certainly a Physical Specimen. He seems 6'0 as per last year with Rob. Its possible he was taller 7 years ago by a bit or perhaps he gave bad poster in his picture with Rob. Right now it shows him at eaxctly 6 foot in the pictures on this site.
Jordan87 said on 24/May/16

Another person featured on this Site in a Pic is Dolph Lundgren. Dolph actually looks 6'1.5 nowdays, or at least he does in his picture on this site with 5'8 Big jay. Anyway this picture showing Dolph Having 3-3.5" on Arnie should more or less line up with a current 5'10.5 Arnie like the Mangeniello pics also shows him at.

I cant really say how tall Arnold was in his prime but I can certainly form a pretty solid opinion of his height nowadays which is around 5'10-5'11 ( Again Mid 60's), which should really yield a good 6'0 as a young man. 6'0 ( a real 6'0) is still tall for a bodybuilder, and a human being at that. Again I know what a real 6 foot looks like in person and it is still taller than 6/10 men nowadays that I can see. Arnie was tall. 5'10 peak estimates are gone in my mind, 5'11 as a peak would still be too short to put him at. Again, I give him a fair 6'0.
Jordan87 said on 24/May/16
Harold,

Yes I think the Manganiello Pics and Rob's height App pretty much shows him to be taller than 5'10 today, closer to 5'11.

Danimal,
Say Arnold is around 5'10.5 nowadays, I cant see him loosing 3 " of height. 6'1.5 seems a little high for me but I dont think completely out of the question. The only thing I can really say is that the 5'10 peak Height claims are outta here thanks to the Manganiello Pics, clearny showing him from 5'10.5 to 5'11 in his mid 60's. Im sure he was taller than 5'11 in his prime, thats something else I am sure of. To say he was as high as 6'1.5 and lost around 3" is harder for me to believe. The average guy losses around 1-1.25" by his 70's. Maybe Arnold's heavy lifting could cause him to loose more than that, but I don't think a full 3".

My Personal Opinion for Arnold's peak height is 5'11.75 MIN to 6'1 MAX". I have completely ruled out the 5'10-5'11 peak height range, but also have a hard time seeing him as over 6'1.

WhatS odd is have One Friend who has met Arnold and says he was from 5'10-5'11 ( in 2009) and coworker who I know for a fact is 6'1 and said Arnold was eye level with him more or less in 1993.
Harold said on 24/May/16
Agree that he's under five foot eleven today. Disagree that he was ever much over that. If you argue that he was once 6.'1.5" because he was once supposedly measured in his lifetime by a fanboy bodybuilder who referred to him as a real 'he-man,' please. If you want to reinforce your false argument with capital letters, please. There is only one person on this planet who claims Little Arnie was ever six foot two, and that's the perpetual salesman, Arnie himself. There's only one person on this planet who claims to have measured him at six foot one and one-half. And that would be Basile from Australia. Basile seems not to have noticed the cowboy boots on his hero's size 9 feet, nor the lifts therein, when he, salivating in glee and supplication, took his measurement. Wait, it was his height you were measuring, wasn't it, Vince?

It would appear he was most certainly Smaller in T-2 than In T-1. The 212 pound Quaote I have heard before. As Far as how much he weighed in Terminator 1984, Id say around 230
James said on 22/May/16
I agree with Saqib!
Arnold has definitely dropped at least 2 inches in height. I never thought he was 6'2" at his max. He appeared almost eye-to-eye with the T-1000 in T2. So, 6'0" back in the 90's is possible. I read an article in Cigar that said Arnold was 212 lbs at 6'2". So, more like 6'1" and 200 I would believe.

Carl Weathers is exactly 6 feet tall on this site with Rob nowadays. He has Arnold here by about 1.5". Again, Lining up with Any previous pics I have posted Arnold is in the 5'10.5" to 5'11" range today in his mid-Late 60's. He was a at least a 6 footer , maybe slightly under in his hayday, possibly slight taller. No 5'9-5'10 estimations for his prime height should be spoken about anymore. Especially after the Manganiello Pics and thanks to Rob's new Ap. that applies the height chart.

6'2 is doubtful in my Mind but so is 5'9 to 5'11 as Peak heights. 5'11.75 to 6'0.5 is where I would put him for his youth height.

Lue Ferrigno on this Site is pictured at 6'2" at an Older age by the way, all you have to do is look at his page. He had Arnold by 3 inches, Arnold was 5'11 at his shortest. 5'8 is trolling and if you want to have any Credibility by Anyone here, Stop with the 5'8-5'9 Garbage please.

Look at the pics I posted Below. He comes up to 5'11 with Joe Manganiello when he was 64 years old. He was a solid 6 foot in his prime. ( Both him and Joe are Wearing Sneakers). That Same even where the pictures are from show more pics of them. Manganiello is a celeb on this site that Rob has the New Height Ap. put on. Arnold would be 3" taller than Rob as of 2014. Average 60 to 70 year old man will have lost 1.2" according to most stats. Add that to his 5'11 and he was slightly over 6 foot in his prime, or at least 6 foot.

Right, lets go back in time. When Arnie was competing against Lou Ferrigno in the seventies , it was apparent that Arnie was rather smaller than expected. Therefore,in order to boost both Arnie and Lou it was put about that Arnold was six two and Louie six five. In truth both men are somewhat smaller. Arnie is in the five eight to ten range and Lou about six one and a half tops. There is an interview with PJ Harvey on youtube where she says she met Arnie at some benefit event and "he's not much taller than me". Also.if you check various episodes of the Incredible Hulk TV series it is obvious that Ferrigno is nowhere near six feet five.

Nigel, when Antonio Sabato Jr. props himself up to run for elected office in California or elsewhere and demands that we believe his lies based on his 'personal integrity' or his ability to financially profit off a pretend image, I will cut him down to (actual) size. This will infuriate the fantasists as reality is not their strong point. And, for doing this, I will be called a 'serial downgrader' and a person of dubious sexual pursuits with a personal vendetta or pathological personality or a blithering on-line idiot, who can neither spell nor add, will stalk and harass me for a hankering for what he mistakenly calls 'haiku'. To those who believe I'm a 'serial downgrader', well, on this site, I've attested to the fact that both Uma Thurman and Dennis Haysbert are exactly the height they say they are. Not everyone lies. But some do. Especially, 'action heroes' because there is much more at stake in their physical presentation than other actors when it comes to 'stature.' At this point, Lederhosen Boy has been caught in so many lies (ask his wife (sorry, ex-wife) about that ) that only the blind could not see the obvious. And no one ever said the Fanboys could stomach reality. So, Nigel, I promise, when Sabato turns from the absurdity of acting and male modelling to trying to run the state or the country or the world and brings his 'actor's resume' with him, and, if he lies, I will call him on it.

No Way 5'11 as a Peak. If you look at the pics I posted below, He comes up to right under Joe's Eye level ( WHo is on this site proven at 6'4.5 at elast) making Arnold 5'11 nowadays in his mid 60's. He was 6'0 or better in his younger days.

Harold, if you like exposing liars, I'd like you to expose Antonio Sabato Jr. :-) Various websites say he's 185cm (just under 6ft1), and I heard him on radio saying he was 6ft 2!! What a joke! Just looking at proportion of his head to his body, it's clear that he's not 6ft1, let alone 6'2, otherwise he'd have the largest head in the world. :-) He looked no taller than Lou Diamond Phillips in The Big Hit (at times, looked shorter), and not much taller than Marky Mark. Go for it.

It seems as though Sabato isn't a big enough celebrity to have a page on here.
Johan said on 15/May/16
Solid 6'1" peak.

6'2" James Cameron was taller, Jeff Bridges edged him out even considering the footwear advantage. He wasn't an inch taller than Tom Arnold. He didnt have an inch on 6'1" Carl Weathers who appears to have lost very little height.

I think 185-186cm covers Arnold just fine. He also claimed in the 80's 186 cm before he started using imperial.

Nowadays he can look anywhere from 5'10.5" - 5'11.25"

I think sometimes footwear and posture plays its part in that so I would put him at 5'11" flat as of 2016.
Jack said on 15/May/16
After seeing him barefoot with Jeff Bridges, I'd say his peak height was 184/85 territory (keeping in mind his posture wasn't all that great). Probably reached 187 in dress shoes/boots.

Peak height-184/185
Current height- 179/180 (most likely due to age, surgery problems and a physically draining lifestyle.

I think this photo provides some Information about Arnie's current height:

Click Here

Jim Caviezel is listed 1.85m here, Arnie 1.82m, so more or less the same height. On this Picture
there is no angle Advantage for anyone, a shoe Advantage for Arnie (look at his left foot), Caviezel
is leaning, Arnie is Standing straight, and still, this Looks to me like a 10-15cm difference in favor of
Caviezel. I never saw Caviezel, but I stood in front of Arnie last year at the Zurich Film Festival. 1.82m is definetely
not true today, I would give him at best 1.78m (5'10), 1.75m I think is also quite possible. I also have the Impression
that Caviezel is taller than 1.85m, from the movies I would say he is 6'2. I also think that Arnie lost a lot of height, his trunk
Looks rather compressed. As a Young man, I think he was around 1.83m (6'ft) and I also read once this was his listed height before
he became famous. Having seen him, 1.85m is the absolute Maximum I could Imaging for him in his prime, 1,88m (6'2) is in my opinion
impossible.

@Rampage I caught Arnie barefoot I think in a very brief role in The Long Goodbye in the early 70s with Elliot Gould. Gould looked about 1.5 inches taller I think, but in shoes and I think Arnie was barefoot. So yeah 6'1.5 checks out I think.

According to this Picture, Arnold is 5'11 as per Rob's Height Chart for Joe Manganiello. He falls about an Inch under his eye line. This picture is likely from 2 years ago when they filmed the movie "Sabotage" together. The Footwear does not look all that suspect, they both have sneakers on.

That Being Said, If Arnold is 5'11 in his mid 60's, he had to lost at least 1-1.25" at the minimum do to his history of weightlifting and beating up his spine but thats all subjective and we will never really know.

Personally I think he was about 6'0.5 in his prime. I dont understand the height claims at all of 5'10 by people. I think he was a sure legit 6 footer in his day which to me where i live is still taller than 6 outta 7 males, and thats in modern times.

Arnold and Big Joe ( Listed on this site in the above Link). Arnold is no more than an Inch under Joe's Eye level which is PROVEN to be at 6'0 Thanks to Rob's picture with him. They both have similar footwear and stances. Arnold is 5'11 at the very minimum at age 66 ( his age when he stood next to Joe). Average man by age 70 losses at least an inch. Arnold was at least 5'11.75 in his prime. The 5'10 Nonsense needs to stop. The man is a solid 5'11 nowadays in his mid 60's with a life of heavy lifting. I really do think he was a solid 6'0 guy up until his early 40's.

Re Arnolds bodybuilding career: he spend 13 years (1962-1975) as an bodybuilder and then , what some months, if you reckon 1980's mr O in. He was ckearly off the juice in the post '75 to pre 1980 mr era and only trained casually. In some pics of the time he actually looks rather slender. In his acting days he was atleast 25-30 plus pounds off his heyday and trained for movie muscles rather than bulk typically weighing 220-225 in the 80'iea prior to redheat where he drpped to abt 210. Point is he didnt spend so many years on the juice as alot if people think. Me stull thinks 6'1" peak is plausible while he may have dipped below 5'11" today..
berta said on 9/May/16
His height is hard to guess but i Think peak was max 187 and shortest 185 and now shortest 179 and tallest 182,5. my guess is. Peak 185,5-186 and now 181. If he was 185 and now is 181 he have lost 4 cm and that is pretty normal when youre 70 years old

Hello, Josey Wales, I never worked with either Forest Whitaker or Orlando Bloom. Though, since you did, I would be interested in your estimation of their heights. As to Junior31, Junior, if you are going to emphasize a point, it's best to do it without lying. The dishonesty doesn't help your cause. It only indicates your desperation. Arnold is 68, not 70. And, if you include plastic surgery, he has had significantly more than five surgeries. Does a nose job also reduce his height in your estimation? Your understanding of the word, haiku, is much like your grasp of English, that is to say, tenuous. But Arnie has always had an appeal to illiterates who don't understand the word camp. Now, there's a good boy, put on your Conan cape, step up to that sixteen story ledge, and ...jump. That will be your contribution to humanity. And it will be the biggest splash you make in this lifetime.


Finished here. The second you said 68 not 70 is all I need to read. Your absurd. He's had 3 different replacements on his body. Your just obsessed with downgrading he guy to satisfy another agenda. This is deeper then a height website.

Also in terms of imitation. I could never imitate you. I come to this site to enjoy it. And I am confident as a man. You on the other hand come here to vent and spread some weird bull **** that's bordering on Norman bates level.

Your clutching at straws. Now your arguments ha e turned to justification of 2 years to dictate a persons height loss. Your down for the count.

Hi Harold, i had the privilidge to work with forest an Orlando in 2012. I am 5'7" and have pics with both. Firest was 6'1" and was very under weught which i guess was for the role. Orlando is 5'10". He often arrived in just socks when we did training and was very relaxed. Lanky lad. Was a pleasure and
especially forest was vey polite , appologizing for breaking my gun on set lol..
Mightyman said on 7/May/16
Having just watched Red Heat I can say that Arnold was probably 5'11 Minus his hair, as he had about and inch or so on Belushi, if its true that Belushi is 5'10. If Belushi is 5'11 then Arnold was 6ft max. To be honest both of them are not short at all. Sure people in Hollywood can say they are a few inches taller its ok. So if Arnold has lost height in his spine which he really looks like he has dramatically I can believe 5'10 or even 5'9. My Dad shrunk a good 2 inches in his 60's from just over 5'9 to 5'7 so its very very possible. As we age some peoples bones get soft and if u are unaware and don't treat it, with heavy lifting it will compress yr spine bones like a marshmallow and you can't reverse it. see this image below and his torso is way shorter than it used to be and he is wearing totally flat shoes in public. He is 70 years old so give him a break its not uncommon. See the pic from Red heat where Arnold is closer to the camera. The remainder photos are from taken last week that show the compression.

Arnold is at Dwayne's temple, so I would probably say he would be rather around 6 foot 1 (peak 6 foot 2).
Harold said on 7/May/16
It's touching, really, to have my very own stalker. And what he lacks in originality as a plagiarist, he makes up for in rabid consistency. Well, they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So, keep shouting, Fanboy31, but it will never make Schwarzie six foot two.
Joe said on 7/May/16
Robert Patrick said Arnie was 6'1" when he worked with on Terminator 2, Arnie was in his early 40s, and his prime health. So I think that was his peak height, possibly a bit under 6'1" most educated guess is 6'0.5" tall for Arnold, as many 6'1" guys are actually that tall like Henry Cavill and a few others. I do not buy this stuff that he was 5'10" or 5'11", Arnie was a big guy, not giant but still a big guy, he was not Christopher Reeve big.

Just a correction, Arnold had 25 year career in bodybuilding, not 40. I didn't know that weightlifting makes you lose height. Arnold was never 6'2", go watch the opening scenes of Predator. Scene with Weathers, Arnold is wearing cowboy boots, which by the way he has been wearing since his BB days. Watch that scene and you can see that he wasn't 6'2 or even 6'1.5".
Jonty said on 6/May/16
Thanks Chris, At last someone with latest information about Arnold's current height, Arnold is surely hanging around 5' 10'' these days. he is 5' 11.5'' (182cm) only with his dress shoes (with thick soles) like the ones he is wearing in the above photo.
Harold said on 6/May/16
Hello, Josey Wales, I never worked with either Forest Whitaker or Orlando Bloom. Though, since you did, I would be interested in your estimation of their heights. As to Junior31, Junior, if you are going to emphasize a point, it's best to do it without lying. The dishonesty doesn't help your cause. It only indicates your desperation. Arnold is 68, not 70. And, if you include plastic surgery, he has had significantly more than five surgeries. Does a nose job also reduce his height in your estimation? Your understanding of the word, haiku, is much like your grasp of English, that is to say, tenuous. But Arnie has always had an appeal to illiterates who don't understand the word camp. Now, there's a good boy, put on your Conan cape, step up to that sixteen story ledge, and ...jump. That will be your contribution to humanity. And it will be the biggest splash you make in this lifetime.
Chris said on 5/May/16
Arnie was at the Zurich Film festival Last year, where i was 2 Meters in Front of him. I'm a Huge Fan of him, but I have to say he is substantially shorter than 182cm today. On this Site there is a pic with jim caviezel where You can See what i mean.

Some guy, if Arnold had ever, ever been in the six foot one or six foot two range, peak, he and his publicists would have said he was six foot three or four. It's the nature of the beast. He works in the exaggeration industry. Not the honesty industry. Elastic arms or not. The Fanboys will not relent. Their insults they can't repent. They rewrite history to honor mythography. Poor, dear lambs, in their Conan caps and Commando jammies. Sing it now, Fanboys, back to the 1980's: "It's just an illusion!!"


Cool story Harold. Your like Shakespeare with a need for Zoloft and Lexapro. Something tells me your neighbors dog Harvey told you to write haiku poetry against the "evil empire". In the first quarter of 2016 you are the clear winner for the celeb heights official troll. Keep it up the award is yours.

Vote for Harold 2016.

Campaign slogan: "I promise you that 70 year olds with 5 surgeries and a bodybuilding career of 40 years will only lose an inch in height. A chicken in every pot and a troll in every post"

Hi harold aka my nemisis , did you ever work with forest whitaker or orlando bloom perhaps ? I did in 2012. Reason i ask is i am trying to gauge you and see how far we are apart on height estimation. Cheetio old chum
richie said on 5/May/16
@Johan. Estimation is absolutely spot on. Lou a weak 6'4" and Arnold a strong 6'1" was definitely their peak heights, both guys have lost a good inch today but that's pretty normal. Way too much evidence to suggest Arnie was just 6', he had a good inch on Ken Waller who was just 6' and edged Mike Katz who himself was listed as 6'1" back in the 70's...

Burt Reynolds wore shoe lifts all his career,but he never tried to hide it,if he did maybe we would be trying to argue that he was 6ft1 peak,and that he has lost 4inches.As for Arnold I don't think he was lower than 6ft peak.It's hard to be certain of any of these celebrities actual heights unless you measure them personally.So I always think maybe knock an inch or so off their listed heights if your not fully convinced they are the height they say they are.
Jonty said on 3/May/16
Lou was a strong 6' 3'' in his prime, I have no idea what is he today but definitely not anywhere 6' 3''. Arnold was definitely 3.5''-4'' shorter than him barefoot on the stage in Mr. Olympia. This puts an upper limit of 5' 11.5'' to 6' 0'' on Arnold's max. height in his prime. That is why I said 5' 11'' in his prime because it may stretch up to 5' 11.75''. Guys accept it he never looked a giant on the screen anyway.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/May/16
This guy was around 187cm evening at peak (or 186.5cm at worst). Cleared 6ft1 with ease. This "let's downgrade Arnold because we're insecure" needs to stop...

Recently watched all terminator movies

Height probably 1984 6'1 2015 5'11
Slimeball said on 3/May/16
Johan:Good contribution to the board with your post. You are absolutley right, lou was 6.4 (193-194 cm( and arnold 6.1(185-186 cm, just as guiness listed him) , in shoes they were 6.5 and 6.2 and roudned up an inch. There is no more discussing about peak height, case closed.
Today lou i about 190-191 and arnold 182 cm.
miko said on 3/May/16
6'1 prime. 5'11 today.
Johan said on 3/May/16
I agree with you John. I personally think that Lou was a weak 6'4" at his peak and Arnold about 6'1" on the nose. There is too much evidence from barefoot pics to suggest that he was even a 6'0" guy.

Arnold can look anything between 6'1"-6"1.5" at peak but i think he had cowboyboots on at times which is why some believe him to be even taller.

5'11" peak is nonsense, the man still looks a good 5'11" when straight and he has clearly shrunk. Lou only looked a 6'2" and change guy next to visitor Ali Baba ( 6'6") so just over an inch loss for him which is pretty normal.
JoHn said on 2/May/16
I met Lou Ferringo 3 years ago and he is dead on 6'3 even this site has him as that - I did ask Lou about his height as I had read he was 6'5 but Lou pointed out he was never taller then 6'4. Now looking at old photos of Lou and Arnold there is 100% 3 inches between the two so back in the day that would make Arnold 6'1 If Lou was 6'4. So as of to day Arnold looks just under 6 feet compared to Lou to day. I say Arnold was a strong 6'1 and today stands 5'11...
Jim Hopper said on 2/May/16
@jervis I think its a bit of both. I bet nearly every-time he was in public the shoes/boots had "help". I believe he was 6-2",but in footwear only.
fran77 said on 2/May/16
The big debate if he really was six. 183cm. Maybe, perhaps, he was six with a perfect posture in the morning. I would bet he was 5.11,25/5.11,5 (181-182) in his prime and in the eighties
Was checking red heat and he is not taller than belushi. He is made to look taller with low angle camera tricks, probably footwear and a two inches flat top
some guy said on 2/May/16
harold arnold had very long arms not many 5-11 guys have arms as long as arnold he is easily 6-2 in his prime
jervis said on 1/May/16
Jonty how do you think he pulled off looking 6ft2 next to other actors in the 80s and 90s?Do you think he wore lifts,or the other actors also inflated their own heights?
Harold said on 1/May/16
Junior31, I agree Arnold stands around five foot ten today.

I don't agree that he has lost nearly four inches in height by his late 60's.

Steroids make you stronger, not shorter. If they made you shorter, every ex-NFL player would be a midget. Of Arnold's many surgeries (hip replacement, shoulder, knee) these do not make you four inches shorter.

As Jonty says, "5'11" in prime, 5'10" now."
Alex said on 1/May/16
In EVERY picture of Ferrigno in the seventies and the eighties, you can clearly see he is the giant type that towers over anybody. He is the classic 6'4+ person, a full 193/194 without a doubt. The fact he clearly edges over arnold, without dwarfing him, is the proof that Arnold was arour 6'2 in his thirties. May be a fraction over is correct.
Harold said on 30/Apr/16
In the words of Henry Kissinger: "Do unto others as they do unto you - plus ten percent."

In other words, if you attack me personally, I will return fire with a scorching volley of my own. And then some..

If you can't take it, then stick to the matter at hand: the issue of Arnold's height (peak and now).

It's not my fault the man lies about his height.

It's a tough thing in life when the facts don't match your fantasy.

Cheer up, Fanboys. Just pop in another DVD and play pretend once more.

Wait I had to confirm this again Harold. Arnold at almost 70, retired body builder for more then half his life, steroid abuser for more then half his life..action star for more en half his life. bull s*** artist, whatever. Has had multiple Major surgeries that have to do with posture and height (knee, back, hip, neck), and according to you, HE IS ONLY DOWN 1 INCH FROM PEAK..haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Can't make this up!!!!

Reason and logic doesn't apply on this site. You're unfortunately wasting your breath. People come on here with their preconceived opinion/biases and do everything to cater to it. You can show them proof (as I recently did with all the Lou pics from his prime) and they will ignore it as though it was never presented. There's a guy who said that Arnold was never taller than 5'11" and anything above that is ridiculous. Someone like that does NOT want to have his mind changed EVER.

Facts - Arnold was 6'1.5"-6'1.75" during his prime. Today, I'm in the OPINION that he's max 5'10.5" and may be even lower.




Amen, even though I didn't post a lot. I have been on those site since its inception and I remember you arguing with people that you described your right. It's beyond frustrating but I guess that's how the story goes.

Agree as well he's maybe 5'10.5 when he wakes up today.

NO. Did you not look at the pic I provided? Lou had 3" on 6'1" Dillet (who claims to be 6'2"). He was every bit 6'4" BAREFOOT (or slightly over it) in his prime. He's since had full hip replacement and is in his mid 60's today, so of course he's shorter NOW.

What a guy, this Harold. I can already imagine what he is like; surely intelligent, yet probably just another loner with no social skills. Probably afraid to look the opposite sex (or whatever sex he is interested in) in the eye as well, but makes up for it by acting all high and mighty on the internet. "Which fancy word shall I use today to instill fear and terror unto other users of the Internet? Ah! I think today is the day for braggadocio! And perhaps, if I am feeling even more superior than usual, tomorrow may be the time for sacrosanct!" The poor dude probably never got laid in his life - his answer to this will probably be something along the lines of "I have ascended far above such worldly pleasures ye lowly mortals." Sure, keep telling yourself that.

As to Arnie's height, he does look to be in the 5'11" range today. His peak height is a mystery, but I doubt it's close to what he claimed. Certainly not 6'2"...
TruthSeeker said on 27/Apr/16
Arnold is between 5'10"-5'11" today. Joe Manganiello's eye line level is about 6'0" according to this link Click Here and if you compare to these photos linked here Click Here Arnold is right under Joe's eye line level.

In this pic with Sly, Dolph & JCVD, his posture is solid with legs and trunk straight, leaning very slightly forward -> Click Here
His eye level is about an inch taller than Sly but not sure how much his losing in his crocodile boots next to his fellow soldiers of fortune.
Note that Sly's knees are slightly bent and his leaning backwards a bit as well so Arnie. Gotta say though, his shoes look like moon boots lol

Lou clearly has atleast 3'' on him. So whatever was the peak height of Lou it was surely 3'' more than Arnold. In the previous post I guessed Lou's heights as 6' 3'' but some people think he might have been anything from 6' 2.5'' to 6' 3''.

Now look at a more recent picture of Arnold with Lou,

This just proves that Arnold uses monster lifts in his shoes for "tall man" image.

The guy was barefoot and wore flats his entire life. His things was working out barefoot. He wears decks and low soled shoes all over the place.

Lou is raising his chin more and Arnie is slouching more in his neck. Shave Lous head and theres max. 2.5"
Let Arnie stand with Lous posture and the gap is even less.

Arnie peak 186cm evening, in footwear 62"
Lou peak 192cm evening, in footwear 64.5"

I'm just going to put this out there:
"The point is to estimate Arnold's height, 'peak' and now. If you and I disagree on that, then we disagree on that. To make it nothing but personal isn't about his height. To gauge another's psychological profile and to belittle them in order to exact some sort of 'revenge' because someone disagrees with you is, in a word, pathetic"

but then this:

"Just because Arnold went AWOL during his military service and quit when the going got rough, doesn't mean you have to..."

"I will rather trust an actress with integrity who never sold steroids or never used a spouse for their own career advancement..."

"when you catch me making my first fortune in steroids, taking money to pretend to be an actor (and thus lie for a living by getting paid for impersonation), selling bogus protein powder to fleece the gullible sheep that are bodybuilding fans, and keeping a secret family from my wife and my own kids, then, the shoe would fit."

The good ol' saying: "Do as I say, not as I do" comes to mind. I'm very surprised Harold hasn't corralled your comments to fit the actual discussion rather than letting you ramble off about your personal hatred. Go find a conspiracy thread if you want to spread your toxic and swaying comments. Either stick to the actual discussion like a real man (your impression of feeling better than most on this page as well as Arnold is quite evident) or leave. Please do not turn this around in some way to make another poor insult towards Arnold like a little girl, you are only impressing yourself.


Bingo. This dude is sick. If Arnold ever goes missing or suspiciously passes, there's no doubt in my mind Harold's statements will be used as evidence. Nuts.
