How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Arnold Schwarzenegger's height is 6ft 0in (183 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1.5in (187 cm)
Austrian Actor, Bodybuilder and Politician best known for starring in movies like 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 that "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 6ft 1/2 inch.

So you got refuted, and instead of giving a debate, you pout boo-hoo.

Guy, Serge Nubret was 180cm. Not 6ft (183cm).
-------------------------------
Whatever dude, Arnold still looks around 6'1" there anyway. Serge is actually 5'11.5"- 6' for the record. Usually 182 cm.

Arnie looks about 5'4 in the PR photo for this page. He has the short guy build.

I wish i drop nothing by 60 , but with my weight problème
[Editor Rob: well worst case is you drop 2 inches by 70, just try to not let bad posture habits take over when you get to your 40's]
Dmeyer says on 20/Oct/14
Rob 2cm loss by 60 and 3cm by 70 is typical ? You say some people drop only 0.5-1cm by 60
[Editor Rob: 1cm by 60 is quite typical, but a good chunk can make it to then without losing more than a few mm, while others lose 2cm. It really is harder to predict, and sometimes depends on lifestyle and physicality.]

The truth finally comes out


Arnie: 5'9 max. I've been converted.
grizz says on 17/Oct/14
@Soldier, you serious, right? In first photo you can't see their shoes, but regardless, it's obvious that every single 6ft+ guy would tower a 5ft5 guy. In the 2nd photo there's no way in hell he looks 6ft1.5. He's just slightly taller than Clooney. 6ft, 6f0.5in maybe.

BigViking says on 16/Oct/14
Thanks for your answer, Rhonda. Not often we see a female on the Arnold page. But I have to disagree with you. And Zane was NEVER 5-10. I still think Arnold looks 6-0, maybe 6-0.5 max in that picture.

Was the 6'1.5" measurement an out of bed measurement? If so:

Peak:
Out of bed: 6'1.5"/187 CM
Early morning: 6'1.25"/186 CM
Late morning: 6'1.25/186 CM
Early afternoon: 6'1"/185 CM
Late afternoon: 6'1"/185 CM
Evening: 6'0.75"/185 CM
When going to bed: 6'0.5"/184 CM
-----------------------------------------
No. Read Vince Basile's Email above. Arnold was measured at the gym during or after a work out. The majority of the height you've gained over night you lose 20 minutes after waking and standing. By a couple of hours you will have lost almost all of it. If Arnold was at the gym, he was likely up for a least a couple of hours, and doing heavy weight exercises would only add to the rate of loss. He was likely 6'2"+ out of bed, and his measured height was what he would have been through the day and evening. He certainly looked it or close enough into the late 90's and even early 2000's, after which we began to see some noticeable height loss to today. On average a person will lose .4 inches each decade after age 40, with that rate accelerating into your 70's.
184.3cm says on 16/Oct/14
6'2 is just as bogus as 5'11 peak ..he was never 6'2. The man himself claimed 186cm during his heyday which is 6'1.25. The guiness book of world records had him measured and recorded at 185cm. So feel free to argue his PEAK between 185-186cm but no way was he lower. Nowadays pushing 70 years old after decades of heavy lifting and steriod abuse he is standing under 6 foot. All evidence points to 181-182cm when he stands his tallest sometimes he looks no more than 180cm. He needs a downgrade for his current height but he has deep pockets and Rob needs to eat you know:)

But are you a reading problem, or what?
Rhonda wrote Frank Zane is 5'9"-10, NOT surely 5'10"! So WTF it does have to do with it?
Of course Zane is not less than 5'9" as ALL source on internet give him this height.
It's not an opinion, it's a fact.

Davejvz, a 5ft11.5 guy could pull off 6ft1 with shoes. Arnold is looking 6ft flat today, he has shrunk, maybe the heavy 100kg plus clean and presses, and the 200kg plus squats push down on his spine over time, they knew this and wore gravity boots and hung upside down to elongate the spin, they may well have used gravity boots before 'official' measurements.

It will never get any better than this. Schwarzenegger side by side with 5-6 Chris Dickerson. Camera angle and perspective is PERFECT. I would like to see Lucio and Guy coming up with their excuses here. FEEL FREE TO DRAW HEIGHT LINES, Lucio!!!

If Arnold was indeed 6-2 he should be exactly 1 head taller than Dickerson with Dickerson coming in under his chin. He doesn´t.
+++++++
BigViking, 5ft6 to 6ft2 is 8 inches. A normal male person's head exceeds 8inches. My own female head is 9 and I am 5ft2. A male head averages 9.5-10 inches. Dickerson's head comes up to Arnold's mouth. Evidence is there for a 6ft2 guy. He is 4-5 above 5ft9-10 Frank Zane.

he is huge is Expendables 2. compare to Willis and Sly. With Shoes still can pull off looking 6'1.

6'1 peak, haven't seen him since RAW but he looked small then, at least compared to the likes of Hogan and Manganiello. Wouldn't say over 5'11 these days.

Red183 says on 10/Oct/14
No doubt Arnie was 185-186cm peak

Today the 5'11" is hard to deny
------------------------------------
Arnold's peak height is probably one of the safest on this site at between 6'1" and 6'1.5". His current height is up for debate.
Dmeyer says on 12/Oct/14
In Many pics i can look 183-184cm so could look taller or same as arnie , as he can look 5'11 flat alot , he wears usualy 3cm shoes plus big haïr , we Will look similar as he is defenetly not a 183cm evening height more 181-182 cm at night i think arnie is not évén 182.5cm but more 181-182cm in between but not over a full 182cm/5'11.7in weak 6ft range and very possibly bang on 5'11.5 night ,
Connor183 says on 12/Oct/14
I don't think Dmeyer would be shorter than Arnie id say they are roughly the same height even though Arnie can look only 5ft 10.75 at times but that's maybe with poor posture, 5ft 11.25 might still be ok for him.
Arthur says on 11/Oct/14

Here's another proof Arnold was minimum 6'1".
With Reg Park, there are about 5 cm of difference even if Reg is tilted to shake Sergio's hand, is not hard imagine him stand up straight.

Lucio says on 10/Oct/14
Rob, based on this photo, then you can tell the true Sergio Oliva's height?
I see about 2-3 cm of difference, so I would say 175 cm for Sergio e 177 cm for Bill Pearl.
Except Sergio was 173 cm and Peral 175 cm, could also be, but it seems unlikely, because all sources give Sergio between 5'9" and 5'10".
5'10" in fact it seems me too high for Sergio, but 1.75 should be ok, what do you think?

[Editor Rob: they look a decent inch apart, just in that 1 picture]
Lucio says on 10/Oct/14
This one for a good time to shut the crap about the little difference in height between Bill Pearl and Arnold.
How many cm you see between the two?
There are at least 10 cm there, and if Bill Pearl is 5'9" (175 cm), then Arnold is easily 185 cm.
It's not even need Pearl is 177 cm.
Both barefoot, same ground.

Click Here Arnold in shoes with a BAREFOOT 177-178cm Ronnie Coleman. He looks no more than 185cm there, and THAT is in shoes. Take away his footwear advantage and we have a 182cm/183cm guy - and this photo was in 2001. Today he is 180cm max and more like falls to 179cm soon after being out of bed. I'm not anti-arnold, I just was always suspect that even in his prime the most he could be at is 6ft0.75 (184cm).

I don't expect anyone here to ever admit they're wrong. But acting like a sensitive wimp pouting over being called a name (which you weren't really) is always a great way to avoid being wrong. And if you continue to be wrong, I'll call you on it. Feel free never to respond, but you don't have a right never to be contested just because you don't want to hear it.

The above photo I believe was selected because it makes Arnie look like the Incredible Shrinking Man!! His legs almost look like Rob's at 4 ft 3 after drinking the G juice!! I gather the effects of the G juice wore off after all! Phew!!

Ironically, most of his height loss appears to be in his upper torso (his spine has collapsed), not his legs.

All in the $$$". Honestly though Arnie was one of the ones I was surprised you still list at 6 ft and did wonder!! But if he was going to pay you he'd be 6 ft 1 rather than 6ft!

Correct, we can easy see in the vid that Wolf is losing visible height with relaxed posture, arnies posture is much better when he looks taller than Wolf.

Arnies footwear is minimum 1.25" so at best he is 181/ 5'11.25".

Wolf himself claimed exactly 181cm

Look up late 1960's pictures of Bill Pearl with Arnold. They are both barefoot and Pearl claimed he was 5ft9 (175cm) and yet arnold Barely had 3" max on him. This made Arnold at the most 6ft at his peak / youth. Even Bill said some years ago that Arnold was "never 6ft1/6ft2" on youtube. I cannot find that video but it is out there.

-------------------------------
I don't believe Pearl claimed to be 5'9", and the majority of his listings are 5'10", which is likely what he claimed to be. In the photo Arnold looks to be almost wearing slippers with only a tiny sole compared to a standard full shoe worn by Pearl. I don't know if you found this photo yourself, or if you cherry-picked it from ArnoldHeight.com and only used the disadvantage remarks. Either way Pearl could have a substantial footwear advantage of up to a full inch. As far as Pearls height, he could have been 5'9" or 5'10", or somewhere in between. Humans aren't manufactured to specific even height specs. Pearl could have been 5'9 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 2/5, 5/8, 1/8, 9/10", for all we know. Sometimes metric measurements are more specific, and can account for any half inch additions rounded up or down with imperial. Pearl is listed 177cm here, while most other sites say 5'10" with occasional 5'9".
Click Here
Either way Arnold would appear slightly more than 6 feet if Pearl was only 5'9" giving Pearl his footwear advantage. If Pearl was more around the 5'9 1/4-3/4" mark than Arnold easily looks 6'1" there min. Even ArnoldHeight makes light of how it's mostly inconclusive as evidence either way, but down-graders will naturally gravitate to what gives them what they want regardless of pros and cons. It's more about the hits and ignoring the misses. Even if the misses outnumber the hits by an outrageous amount and are more than typically superior, and the hits are dubious at best.

As far as a video where Pearl claims Arnold was not 6'1-6'2", maybe it exists and maybe it doesn't. But it's not evidence until it materializes, just like key evidence in a court of law could never convict someone if it doesn't exist. A witness saying they thought they saw it would never be all it took to send someone to the electric chair. Pearl saw Arnold as an opponent and it's up for individuals to give glowing opinions of others or dismissal. If in fact Pearl said this, there are many times more who said the opposite. This was during his BB years and after in Hollywood. Carl Weathers is a good example.

..There's no way a 6 footer would have that much eye clearance over someone 5'6.

Exactly Guy, if you measure the distance between eye line, it is even greater than that above their head.
No chance that he is less than 6'1", but not even to want to be bad.
Evidently, some people have to see what they want to feel good, what can you do?

Hi Rob, I think Arnold Schwarzenegger height is around 5'9 as in the movie, Escape Plan, he is the same height as Faran Tahir and Faran is registered on your site as 5'9
[Editor Rob: I didn't think he looked the same as Arnie, a few inches smaller.]
GUY says on 7/Oct/14
BigViking says on 6/Oct/14
Guy: Calling me a low forehead doesn´t change the fact that Arnold is 6-0 in that BB picture.
-----------------------------
Oh there was plenty more than that in my post, but if that's the only thing you want to highlight and make mention of, then you clearly have nothing to say to disprove me. And saying Arnold was only 6 feet just because you say so doesn't make it true. That's no kind of comeback after being soundly refuted .
GUY says on 7/Oct/14
BigViking says on 6/Oct/14
Lucio: Your scale proves that Arnold was 6-0 prime. Your height line for Arnold is WAY to high. He has no hair at all with your line only skull and that is not right. If you adjust it to his real skull size I´m sure you will get 1.83 m and not 1.86 m. :)

He wasn´t a strong 6-1. He was 6-0. Nowadays down to 5-11. Makes much more sense.
----------------------------
You either have little sense or you're making up complaints because you can't admit you're wrong. The actual top of Arnold's hair is above the photo crop, so I don't know what you have a problem with. Lucio's line is accurate in that there is the same distance north and south of his eye level. What you mean to say is if you shave off the top of Arnold's skull you'll get what you want. Not gonna work.

What you seem to be ignoring is that Arnold's eye level also completely backs that he's at least 6'1" there. The real top of someone's head through the hair can be subjective, and anyone can dispute what is essentially an educated guess. But where Arnold's eyes are in comparison to the top of Dickerson's head cannot be just a matter of opinion. Arnold's eyes are minimum 2 inches above Dickerson's head and he's even looking down slightly. The top of Dickerson's head is at the bottom of Arnold's nose, which is 2 inches from his pupil. So 5 inches for the top portion of his head plus another 2 inches equals 7 inches. Basic math, simple concept. There's no way a 6 footer would have that much eye clearance over someone 5'6". That can't be disputed or given another opinion. A 6'1" guy will have his eye level at a 5'8" guy's cranium top. Dickerson is clearly below this by at least 2 inches, and if Arnold was looking straight across he might get that extra half inch. It's the typical excuse move to dispute the height line through the hair, and that's always a way to maintain a disagreement. But the eye level cannot be denied insofar as sounding like fool.
Lucio says on 6/Oct/14
@BigViking:
height line for Arnold is WAY to high?
Maybe, possible but unlikely.
Why? Because if you try to lower the height line by 3 cm as you say, you go to end up inside the Arnold's skull.
Sure, unless he is not some kind of hominid! lol.
At best, I can give you an centimeter less, no less, and we are always at six one.
Keep in mind the photo with Eubanks, where he can't be 5'11" if Eubanks is, as is, 5'10", there are more than 2 cm difference.
To me it makes much more sense 186 cm prime, and 183 cm now, 3 cm less than peak.
Also consider that in your photo, he is tending his abs, and this makes you lose about 1 cm or so. :)
Daniel says on 6/Oct/14
Lucio, your marked up pictures are horrible. Look at where the feet are for both individuals! Just wishing for something, doesn't make it so. Take the time to check out the Arnold Classic 2014 videos on Youtube of them together, they look at each other many times, pretty much eye to eye.

Is it really all that surprising that he exaggerated a few stats? Adding 2" in height is pretty much par for the course for Actors. Bodybuilders are much worse. If one guy had a 19" arm, the next would add another inch just to get in the other guy's head. Put another way, if he really was 187-188cm, what do you think his billed height would have been?

Weider coached him (and others) well too. Lies and more lies are all in a days work. How else do you flog useless supplements and outrageous marathon workouts to gullible masses when the real secret came in a vial or pill form? We are not as naive these days about such things. He (Weider) used to say, by the time people worked out it was all bunk (the crap in bodybuilding magazines), they were hooked a healthier lifestyle - so it was all justified. Or maybe he didn't care one way or another. You don't die a billionaire by being perfectly honest 100% of the time.

This whole discussion is further complicated by his use of lifts - yeah, he used them. This explains the strange variations we all notice (e.g. when he's next to Clinton, vs George W. Bush.) I get the feeling he's not wearing them as much (or at all?) these days vs a decade or two ago. Just look at his pictures where he is standing next to Stallone (another prolific lift wearer.) There used to be a clear ~10cm height difference between them, and when they were both "on" that difference was maintained. Now days, not so much. They often look like there's only a few cm between them.

Maybe he feels at this point in his life (particularly with everything that has happened in his personal life) he doesn't need to appear "larger than life" any more or keep up the illusion. I still say he sported one of the best physiques ever and inspired millions. Around 6ft even (peak) is a really good height for a man. These are my final thoughts on the issue!
Vibram says on 6/Oct/14
Look up late 1960's pictures of Bill Pearl with Arnold. They are both barefoot and Pearl claimed he was 5ft9 (175cm) and yet arnold Barely had 3" max on him. This made Arnold at the most 6ft at his peak / youth. Even Bill said some years ago that Arnold was "never 6ft1/6ft2" on youtube. I cannot find that video but it is out there.

Lucio: Your scale proves that Arnold was 6-0 prime. Your height line for Arnold is WAY to high. He has no hair at all with your line only skull and that is not right. If you adjust it to his real skull size I´m sure you will get 1.83 m and not 1.86 m. :)

He wasn´t a strong 6-1. He was 6-0. Nowadays down to 5-11. Makes much more sense.

Arnold looks one inch taller than Dennis. Arnold may only be 6'.25" (184 cm)in shoes with 1.25" (4cm) soles. Arnold may be in fact only 5'11" as Kevin Sorbo claimed. Arnold maybe 6' morning height down to 5'11 evening. 180-181cm in the photo with Dennis. I would say I never believe it that he wasn't 6'1" (185-186cm), but I'll still say it was his peak height.

It will never get any better than this. Schwarzenegger side by side with 5-6 Chris Dickerson. Camera angle and perspective is PERFECT. I would like to see Lucio and Guy coming up with their excuses here. FEEL FREE TO DRAW HEIGHT LINES, Lucio!!!

If Arnold was indeed 6-2 he should be exactly 1 head taller than Dickerson with Dickerson coming in under his chin. He doesn´t. FAR from it. Dickerson comes up till under Arnolds nose! This is the best proof ever of a MAX 6-0 peak Arnold!

Also compare him with 5-9 Zane (probably more 5-8 in reality). That´s exactly 3 inches difference right there. If Zane was indeed his billed 5-9 Arnold is bang on 6-0 in that picture. If Zane was less than 5-9?? You figure it out.

Can we now please stop with all the lame excuses of Arnold looking 6-2 in his old bodybuilding photos??? He clearly does NOT.

@PathfinderCC
did you watch the entire video from 04:30?
Anyway with dress shoes on he looks 185-6 cm which puts him at 182-3cm barefoot.
You can clearly see the height difference between them. Therefore Rob's listing is still correct!
GUY says on 6/Oct/14
Big Viking, no one claims Arnold was 6'2". He was measured at 6'1.5" by Vince Basille, and that figure has been used frequently. The lowest he likely could have been is 6'1", which is a good sized tall but not a stand out or celebrated height.

Now you seem to have a misconception of how high a human head is. At 5'6" you claim Arnold should be a whole head taller than Dickerson using the embellished 6'2" figure. That's only an 8 inch difference, while a male human head is more like 10". If Arnold was 6'1"-6'1.5", he was 7-7.5" taller than Dickerson. Obviously not be a whole head taller! Maybe you're saying something about your own cranium? Your eyes are actually at the middle of your head, although it seems like their in the upper portion. So there's 5 inches above and 5 inches below your eye level. Arnold's eye level is clearly above Dickersons cranium even with his hair by at least 2 inches. A good gauge to measure this is the distance from your eye to the bottom of your nostril is 2 inches. So Dickinson at 5'6" makes Arnold looking every bit at least 6'1" there.

As far as Frank Zane being only 5'8", there isn't any evidence or reason for this downgrade from 5'9" except necessity. "Probably" doesn't pass as evidence. Arnold easily looks min 4 inches taller than Zane there without question. So this was a cakewalk to refute, and in fact only confirms that Arnold was over 6' in his prime.
GUY says on 6/Oct/14
T.1000: During the interview, like most people, Arnold isn't standing military while talking to a shorter person. It's not engaging to do so and can be seen as obnoxious, arrogant, and even intimidating. Arnold obviously doesn't have any of these feelings as he hands out awards at his own competition. I don't stand as tall as I can with my chin way up talking one on one to shorter people. Especially if there isn't a huge height difference, I will usually meet their eye level often unintentionally. It's clear after the 6:53 mark as both men stand to triumphantly face the crowd, that Arnold stands with fuller posture after he unbuttons his jacket. Looks an easy 2 inch difference. Wolf claims himself to be 181 cm or 5'11 1/4", so Arnold looks roughly 6'1 1/4" in shoes or around 6' barefoot.

GUY says on 5/Oct/14
Klitschko isn't standing any more relaxed than Arnold in that pic, and it doesn't negate his camera advantage.

As far as the other photo with Dennis Wolf, the first thing you have to notice is that it's a very high shot. With very high and very low shots, distance from the camera will have a huge affect. A high angle shot will favor those in the back, which contradicts the notion that the camera always favors those in front. You can see where the other guys get lower and lower in the shot the closer to the front they stand. Wolf appears to be standing next to Arnold, but because it's such a high shot, any difference in posture will affect comparison much more strongly than a straight shot. Arnold is already an inch higher than Wolf in the shot, but their postures are different. Wolf is performing a double bicep pose which places his head and chest straight and up. He's also angled and his head is leaning slightly towards his left side which is furthest from the camera. Arnold is also angled, but his head is leaning slightly towards his left side which is closest to the camera. There could be a discrepancy there. The bottom line is the nature of the photo being a high angle shot makes it not very conclusive or reliable unless the subjects are standing in the same manner, which they are not.

Also of note, the nature of the double bicep pose creates rigidity in the spine. The chest and back are elevated which renders someone at or near the top of their stature. Arnold is more relaxed posture wise as he applauds, and his back and neck would not be as straight as it would be if he was doing a double bicep pose. All of these variables are possible to explain why Arnold appears a mere inch less than he should in that photo.
Vibram says on 5/Oct/14
He was clearly pipped by 5ft11.5 Jimmy Fallon on the food video. Just check out on youtube "Fallon with Arnold". Keep hanging on to your beliefs he's still a strong 6 footer, buddy boys.

IMO: Peak = 6ft0.75 (184cm). Today 5ft11 max (180cm) and perhaps tucks himself into bed at night at 5ft10.5.

I'm a fraction under 5ft8 and it's quite a common height where i live and i'd give anything to be 5ft11. i saw recent pics of the austrian oak and although looking aged he's really pumped up and towers of most people in the pics i saw.

Shorter than Jimmy Fallon in the QVC skit by about an inch or so
-----------------------------------
Depends on what method you use to compare heights. Fallon's eye level is higher here
Click Here
.....But cranium height is the same. Unless everyone has bolts sticking out of their necks like Frankenstein, their heads aren't always going to be at a fixed straight level. You raise your head down or up even in a tiny minute way, and your eye level will vary compared to someone the same height with different posture. But drawing lines across the top of their heads and Fallon is not taller. Here's another one where Arnold is looking a little straighter
Click Here
Eye level is equal as well as head line, even considering Fallon is wearing a wig. What it comes down to is two guys the same height aren't always going to look that way due to looser posture, slouching, relaxed head position etc.

And in doing so, they usually exaggerate just because being insecure, they have to write something very far away from their true height, to overcome their severe inferiority complex.

Well, the steroids didn't help, that's for sure. What people don't realize that his massive height loss (3" at his age), is mostly in his upper torso (his spinal column). As you mentioned, it has totally collapsed on him (compressed). To my eyes it became clearly visible to the naked eye POST 2003. So, really only within the last 10 years and it seems to be escalating all the time.

But how do you tell if he is 182 cm or 180 cm? So you know recognize a difference by only 2 cm from a few pic, dubious and ambiguous?
But please ..

The famous Jimmy Fallon's video, doesn't really say anything, because you can't see the shoes, nor the ground, because Fallon could wear shoes with thick heels there, and third because there is no full body shots of them side by side.

It might be possible his peak height was 6'1.5", but I do not think even someone in their early 40s loses that much height. I think Arnie's height was 6'1" maximum in his prime, so its not a huge exaggeration that he claimed that he was 6-2, men tend to exaggerate their heights an inch or two.
Connor183 says on 24/Sep/14
@Danimal actually yeah he did look just under 5ft 11 in Escape Plan with Sly whos 5ft 8.5-9 range, i think i might be starting to agree with you, even 5ft 11-11.25 might be too high for him today, id be shocked if in a few months time Rob will downgrade him to 5ft 11.75 because he doesn't look that tall let alone 6ft! and he most certainly doesn't look 5ft 11.75 with Jimmy Fallon whos that height, all evidence points to this that he isnt 5ft 11.75 -182cm, arnie is looking an average-above average height guy today, i think a 5ft 10.75 listing would be the most realistic today.

It is obvious that Arnie was 187cm like he was measured many times in his prime. I bet most of these users don't understand that big contributer to Arnold's height loss is his steroid use. He obviously kept using through his film career and this is the result. He also didn't include dairy products in his diets which obviously made it worse. His spine looks totally collapsed together.

Well, the steroids didn't help, that's for sure. What people don't realize that his massive height loss (3" at his age), is mostly in his upper torso (his spinal column). As you mentioned, it has totally collapsed on him (compressed). To my eyes it became clearly visible to the naked eye POST 2003. So, really only within the last 10 years and it seems to be escalating all the time.

Arnold next to 6'1"-6'2" Mike Katz (in the first pic) and next to 6'1" Reg Park (has been listed also at 6'2") and 6'0" Dave Draper. NO lifts for Arnold back then in his BAREFOOT days. ;-)

And to those who claim that Draper wasn't 6'0", here's Reg Park who has that minimum 1" on him and YES, Arnold was taller than Reg Park.

I don't know how tall Arnold Schwarzenegger is. What I do know is his Madame Tussaud's facsimile looks significantly more lifelike than he does. The hair dye, the plastic surgery, the capped teeth, there just doesn't seem enough of them to give this guy the boost he needs. Maybe stilts?
Geoff says on 23/Sep/14
The hilarious thing about Arnold and his height is one could solve the problem by just asking him. Oh, that's right. He wont' give you a straight answer. And this guy was elected to political office? That's as spectacular joke as has ever been told.

What photos are you talking about Hubert? There are photos of Arnold with tall bodybuilders such as Steve Reeves and Reg Park where he he seems to have the edge. Pictures with Clint Eastwood, Ronald Reagan where he looks at least 6'1. Lets not even get into the photos that Nick posted with Jeff Bridge where he is similar height, even at a disadvantage concerning footwear. Arnold is not listed as 6'2 as you can see. Nobody here thinks he was ever 6'2. But anything below 6'1 is inconceivable.

I have been big into the UFC and MMA lifestyle since 2008 and have provided Rob with several pictures of me with various MMA/UFC guys in the past.

Well, KROC, the proof is in the photos and the relative heights of those pictured with him. Where is your proof he was ever, in this lifetime, six foot two, as he claimed he was for 50 years. Was he ever, peak, six foot two? Absolutely, in Cuban heels or cowboy boots and elevator shoes, he was, in fact, six foot two. Maybe, just maybe, those of use who believe Arnold is not what he pretends aren't 'jealous' but rather more interested in the truth than fantasy. Maybe some of us aren't even short (to me, five ten, Arnold's height, is way short).

Arnie has lost somewhere around 1.5/2 inches which for a man closing in on 70, isn't too much above the norm. 6'1 peak down to just over 5'11 IMO.

It's funny, but you do the same thing with Hulk Hogan, but both men have lost a minimum of 3". Hogan went from 6'6" to just under 6'3" and Arnold has gone from 6'1.5"-6'1.75" to under 5'11" today.

Arnold claiming, recently, a peak of six foot one and three-quarters and now six foot one-half inch is about as credible as...everything else he claims. In other words, shelve it somewhere between b.s. and poppycock.

Whether, in fact, he's five foot nine or six foot two, Arnold will go down in history as a great actor (he has won many Oscars), a great politician (no one had a higher opinion poll rating when he left office in the history of California gubernatorial elections), a great bodybuilder (and he never used the shortcut of steroids either: he earned it the natural way!), and a great family man, which is why he has only been married once.

@Danimal, in the Jimmy Fallon video's,
Click Here
their shoes are not visible in the shot, so this makes me think that Fallon is wearing some kind of elevator shoes, because he's wearing a woman's wig for that sketch.
In the absence of another full body shot of both for comparison, I'm not safe that Fallon is taller than Arnold.
Just a clip, and most importantly without shot of shoes, is not enough to say that Fallon is taller than Arnold.

It's interesting that those who accuse Arnold of being five foot ten or less are accused of 'trolling,' yet those who trumpet Arnold of being six one or two are not accused of 'trolling.' The less you know about Hollywood, the more you will believe his 'official height' (pause for laughter).

I can understand people saying he's 5'11 today even though i feel he's a weak 6'0, weather i like him or not, he is above average height today and even taller in his younger days.

You're in denial Stan. 5'11.5" Jimmy Kimmy is noticeably taller than Arnold today. Arnold barely edged out 5'9"-5'10" George St. Pierre recently. I don't think he's a flat 5'10", but he's most certainly under 5'11". The proof is there for you to see if your eyes want to see it.

It's enough that Arnie the narcissist once said that "most people really LOOK UP to me." Who says that?! This shows he was obsessed with his height and was not satisfied with being a "mere" 5'10", a more than acceptable height for a male. Arnie was very careful never to be seen in public without his trusty lifts.

Really? So I guess he wore lifts all throughout the mid 60's until 1980 when he was barefoot on stage, or in sandals in Pumping Iron standing next to 6'4" Lou Ferrigno at the time? Arnold WAS a tall man (well above average). He easily stood over 6'1" (barefoot) until his height loss started to kick in.

I think it's a good thing to have plenty of self confidence and belief, but there are certainly cases where guys too much into themselves can be highly irritating to be around and unlikeable. Arnie is a very likeable guy, healthy ego or not.

Those who live in the Los Angeles area, feel free to stalk Arnie and do you best to capture a photo of/with him. This will relieve all the people who are insecure with Arnie's 6 foot listing. For example, if you spot arnie snap a picture, its like a game...like where's waldo. You snap the picture, analyze it, then walk up to the building where he was standing. From there the photo can tell you where the top of his head is, so having measuring tape handy, measure the height according to the photo. If he is wearing large boots, you can still estimate the height.

People aren't saying he was 5'10" at this peak. The majority believe he was over 6'1" at this peak, with the very few that believe he was only 6'0". The 5'10" claim is of his current height, which isn't very far from the truth.

Imagine you don't know Rob is 5'8 and had to give a guess,of course you'll never know his height for sure but you can exclude for exp marks like 168 or 180 he just won't look that marks.

Rather a strong 5'11 today and yeah definitely 6'1 and change peak.
Like Rob said the 6'1.5 measurement is very credible,though I would question it a little.The mark was probably like 186,5 or 186,7 but knowing Arnie he would have forced himself to his best thus squeezing few mms possibly.
In his early career he looked a solid 6'1 in most of his films with good posture but without forcing himself.He also did look very similar to 6'1 Weathers maybe a very small fraction over him.
6'1.5 is okay but maybe more 186 than 187.If I had to give a range he's more likely 6'1-1.5 than 6'1.5-2 but no more.

For the past fifty years, Arnold has been paid (well-paid, actually) to pretend he's larger than life. He actually was larger than life in the late 60's and early 70's. Horizontally-speaking. Not vertically-speaking. Wide. Not tall. As far back as 1975, he was tapering off the size and losing it and he's been living off the legacy of having had muscle since then. He kept up his biceps for 20 years because that's as far as most fans understand about bodybuilding. Was he ever six foot two (or six foot one or six foot one and one-half)? Never. Not even close. But he made a living pretending he was, because it made a really good story even greater (through exaggeration). Those who argue that he's lost half-a-foot in height are, to my mind, deluded and gulled by the presentation of the original package, which was always a lie, vertically-speaking. When he's caught without his lifts (a rarity), the truth is all too obvious. But what a great run he had.
If one argues, "but Ric Drasin swears he was six foot one or two!", Rick Drasin is the same source that says steroids have never caused any health problems in bodybuilders. If one argues that Vince Basile says he measured Arnold at six foot two, Vince Basil is the same guy (look it up on the internet) who claimed Arnold raped a teenage girl in Australia one night after a posing exhibition. Zero credibility in both cases. Men's Health estimated his height at five foot ten. I trust that. Cigar Afficionado also alluded to the same about fifteen or twenty years ago. Most 'action heroes' are short (sub five nine). Arnold passed as tall because he was over five foot nine. Maybe five ten or five eleven peak. Which is a long, long way from the published lie that he was six foot two.


Absurd on all accounts.

Who said anything about losing a half a foot. 2-3 inches is not a half a foot. Read my post below correlating body builders/wrestlers/steroid abusers drastic losses in height. The 5'10 peak nonsense had to stop. That's average height. In 1975 In a Room full of 20 plus people barefoot he was 99pct of the time first or second tallest. what your basically doing is downgrading human beings average height to 5'7.

6'1 and change peak
Weak 5'11 today.
PLB says on 11/Sep/14
I just rewatched 'Pumping Iron' on Netflix the other night. Ferrigno is about two inches taller and Nubret maybe two inches shorter. Arnold is always the tallest body builder on stage is Lou isn't there.

He is nearly a foot taller than Columbu.

I think Arnold probably was a little more than 6'1" back then. All those competition are held bare foot so there's no risk in them wearing funny shoes. However today from seeing him on newsreels or in movies he looks about 5'11".

I know something about that sort of thing. I was 6'4" the morning I fell down the cliff. When I could get up and walk around again - more than a year later - I was 6'2". Some men lose their height gradually. Not me.

Arnold has had some serious illnesses. His heart needed work I think.

Arnold was clearly over 6' in his youth, 6'1.25"-6'1.5" (186-187) out of bed sounds possible. Nowadays, at 67, he is 1.5"-2" shorter than then.

Troll because you say so. In his best day, with nineteen years old, early in the morning, 5 feet eleven and half; never ever six foot. 1.80-181 cm. flat. He was really tall with 1.80-1.81 in sixtees and even seventees because his bodybuilders pals where taken from the Willow village. People between five feet three inches like Franco Columbo and Five six-five eight (all the golden era bodybuilders). There where only ONE bodybuilder over six feet, Lou Ferrigno. Reg Park, Dennis Tinerino, Arnold, all of them BARELY six feet. Thats why today he´s five eleven with cowboy boots. No one discuss he had the best body ever. But he was no a basketball player.

Men's Health discovered that Arnold is 5'10", and that's the height they published. You cannot get a more reliable source than that. Arnold is insecure about his height like many in the spotlight, and wears lifts in public (as if 178cm is short). End of story.

Troll. End of story.

How tall did he looked in Terminator 2?No more than 6'1 definitely and he was in his early 40's,quite unlikely he lost 0.5" at the time possibly few mms if anything.
Strong chances for 6'1-1.25 at peak you agree Rob?
[Editor Rob: I still think the 6ft 1.5 measurement is as good as we can get for a peak Arnie...by early 40's a few mm is quite possible for an extreme lifter.]
