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.

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...

@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

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.

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, Harold will actually just criticise you for making a personal attack on him, then make a personal attack on you, probably calling you a caped fanboy in the meantime. Yawn. He's the would-be bully of the playground, justifying himself to the world in the hope he may occasionally fool someone.

Dillett was 6'1 185 cm. Ferrigno was 6'3 190 cm barefoot, and 6'4 193 cm in shoes.

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.
miko said on 22/Apr/16
I'm of the opinion that he probably is just a flat 5'11 today.
James St. said on 22/Apr/16
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

Look at the heights of Arnold and Lou when both were young and competing for Mr. Olympia, both are barefoot
Click Here

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.


LOL WHAT? Lifts??

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.

"Monster lifts" LOL I'm done with this page
Jimmydang said on 21/Apr/16
His current height is between 5' 10'' and 5' 11''. Peak height most probably was between 5' 11'' and 6' 0'', anything above is beyond ridiculous.

You can´t measure height from a low angle like that PERIOD

Click Here

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

Arnie peak 186cm evening, in footwear 6´2"
Lou peak 192cm evening, in footwear 6´4.5"

Just watching a live Arnold on Facebook, he was exactly the same height as Frank Stallone.

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.

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. Proofreading is one word, by the way, but then if I won't correct your spectacular inability to articulate your point, because what would be the point? Let's just say an illiterate man does not help his own cause when he chooses the written word as his form of argument. As to your insistence that Arnold once was six foot one (you've given up on Arnold's own insistence he stood six foot two, I see), too many of his own fellow actors (try Sarah Douglas, Kevin Sorbo, etc) testify as to his shorter stature. But why believe them when you can shake your tiny fists at the sky and declare you opinion sacrosanct. As to your throwaway line, "Who cares about the billing, the integrity, or what the person says they are," you've hit the nail on the head. Not you. Try adding more weight and pumping out another set, Fanboy. Who knows? Maybe, someday, you can drink enough Arnold Certified Protein Powder and transform yourself from Junior31 into Junior32? Harsh Truth has it right, peak five eleven or so for the man who gets paid to pretend for a living . That would be Arnold, Sunshine. No one disputes a creaking geriatric like Arnie has lost height, but three or four inches? But, wait, we're not dealing with reason, we're dealing with Fanboys. That explains it. And you.


Tiny fists lol. Only if you knew. Any way you can honestly sit here and say a 70 year old retired body builder who was a steroid abuser and had 4+ major surgeries. ONLY LOST 1 INCH. Explain this or don't reply at all.

I'm not downgrading anyone, those are legit real heights, not fantasy measurements for the gullible... Every height of every celebrity, being actors, sport icons, bodybuilders, and such, are all overblown, it's normal and just how it is, entertainment industry not reality industry... Ferrigno was a 6'2-6'3 max guy in his youth, billed at 6'4-6'5, Dillett was around 5'11-6', billed at 6'1-6'2, both fairly tall for being bodybuilders... Believe what you want Alex...

Junior 31, on one thing you and I agree: Arnold's current height today is around five foot ten. That is a far, far cry from his well-rehearsed braggadocio of 'six two.' As to your amateur psychological assessment, you seem to have missed English the first time around in school. Or failed it, and, like little Arnie, graduated from 'technical school.' It's all right, Junior31, the world needs mechanics As to the possibility of Arnold once being six foot one (peak) and now being five ten in his late 60's, wow, you either are spectacularly naïve or you don't know much about professional bodybuilding, which, like professional wrestling, plays fast and loose with the truth. But everything's all right: nothing that a cup of cocoa and wearing your Conan cape won't cure. Fight on, Fanboy!


Ah and there it is. The defensive "I can't justify why I downgrade other then wrestlers and body builders have "billed heights" so I'm going to drop the fan boy title"' ploy. Been waiting for that. Ok let's do this again because the first time I guess you were to busy proof reading or checking if I used a semi colon the right way. Ready?

It. Has. Nothing. To. Do. With. Billed. Heights.

Why don't you grasp that. Someone could be billed 7'8. What does it matter. When he or she is next to multiple people with proven accurate heights the billed nonsense goes out the window. Who cares about the billing, the integrity, or what the person says they are. The point is that Arnold as he is the example we are using is a lying politician. Great. Good for him. But when he has stood next to others from 1970-1990 he didn't look under 6'1 time and time again. But you see you will never admit to that. You will just downgrade everyone around him or say that he's standing on an imaginary grassy knoll. Or that he was on a construction sight that day and when it is a harvest moon his right leg becomes shorter then the left. I can see it now. Just concoct the most idiotic stories to why this shmuck of an actor never stood 6'1

The fact that you brought up wrestling should further reiterate the fact that despite whether a guy started at 6'4 or 5'4 if he makes it to 70 he is going to be significantly shorter then his actual peak. NOT HIS BILLED HEIGHT. As wee seen time and time again. This is getting annoying.
Johan said on 17/Apr/16
Ferrigno was never 3.5-4 in taller than Arnie. Hair doesn't count and Lou was always rocking an afro. Shave his head and it was 2.5 in max.
Frank said on 16/Apr/16
Arnie in his peak probably was i 6'1" max or 6'0.5" barefoot.
Now around 5'11" , he never was 6'2" or taller, it is sci-fi
Harsh Truth said on 16/Apr/16
Arnold was not even 6' 0'' , he was actually 5' 11.5'' in his peak days. In the bodybuilding picture with Lou barefoot, Arnold clearly looks at least 3.5''-4'' shorter than him, So Lou was indeed a tall man 6' 3' '- 6' 3.5'' but Arnold was never more than 5' 11.5'' taller.

Ferrigno is still clearly taller than 189 cm Eric Bana. So he was around 193 for sure in his young days.

richie said on 16/Apr/16
Ferrigno 6'3.5", Schwarzenegger 6'1" i would say is plausible. Lou had close to 3 inches on Arnold and he was marginally shorter than Reb Brown a legit 6'4", these estimated heights of 6'2" for Ferrigno and 6'0" for Scharzenegger are too downgraded. Arnold certainly during the 70's was a strong 6'1" without a doubt...

Junior31, you do amuse me. I only call the liars out for lying. When I meet people who are what they say they are, I note it and applaud them. Dennis Haysbert doesn't lie about his height: he is what he says he is. He's in between six foot four and six foot five. Call him six foot four and one-half. I've run into Uma Thurman in NYC and yes, she is what she says she is. It's only the liars that get my goat. And the fanboys who, through the prism (or is that prison?) of their own idolatry, can't face reality. To expect honesty from an actor is rare. To expect it from a bodybuilder, rarer. To expect it from an actor/bodybuilder/politician is laughable. By the way, do you have spellcheck?


Congrats for speaking in haiku poetry on celeb heights.com. Your online college classes are paying off. And I wouldn't waste my time enabling spell check on a website like this. It's for fun. We aren't discussing the Cuban missile crisis. Anyway you need to drop the whole lying shtick (that's slang, is it ok if I use that professor?) the point of the site isn't he said she said And whether you think the person is a nice. Who cares? It's judging height based upon the heights of others around them, colleagues and what not. But you see there in lies the problem. Every other human being pictured with any of the subject heights you immediately down grade or falsify. You downgrade everyone including the patrons of the site as subordinates to your "intelligence" which seems to stop at proper diction. If you would like we can get into Freudian psychology and the fact that you more then likely have a self esteem problem coupled with a Napoleon complex but I'm to tired to "look up" the proper spelling. I am sorry if Arnold didn't sign your predator poster when walking out of the Arby's you were waiting outside of.

In other news. He was 6'1. Today mid 5'10.

There must be several different gauges for height. For example if someone's height is legitametely 5'10.

Actual height 5'10

Billed height 6'0

Harold height 5'8.

Simple equations
Harold said on 13/Apr/16
Yes, six foot four, peak, for Clint is hogwash. It's the usual Hollywood hokum. Seagal in the photo accentuates his height with cowboy boots. As for Arnold relative to Clint, Clint looks like he's wearing the equivalent of flats. As for Arnold's footwear: difficult to gauge.
Alex said on 13/Apr/16
Dillett was 6'1 185 cm. Ferrigno was 6'3 190 cm barefoot, and 6'4 193 cm in shoes.

I agree Harold Clint was not 6ft4 peak,but I would say he was more 6ft3 not 6ft2,I believe his 6ft4 measurement was in shoes.He always looked taller than 6ft2 and shorter than 6ft4 to me so I go for 6ft3 peak.

Everyone seems to be their billed heights. The only exception is Clint Eastwood. While he is certainly not in his prime here, I have trouble imagining that he dropped here from around 6'4", although I suppose it is possible.

Ah yes, Danimal176, and your rock solid dictation of the heights of Lou's bodybuilding brethren is taken from what reliable source? The muscle fanzines? Please. What those photos truly prove is that Lou is what is known in the gym as a "Lollypop." That is to say, his head is so gigantically out of proportion to the rest of his body that it resembles a lollypop or a daisy on a stalk. Human Growth Hormone. Up the dosage, Lou. And buy some more fake calves.
Canson said on 12/Apr/16
I can buy 6'3 for Lou def. that's what he was supposed to have been (they inflated Arnold an inch I believe and same for him or maybe 2.) Ali Baba has him 6'2 these days so def an inch lost there
Alucard said on 12/Apr/16
Paul Dillett was around 6', no more, and look at that gigantic head with puffy hair, making Ferrigno appear much bigger and taller than he really is... Schlierkamp was similar to Dillett, maybe a bit taller at 6'1, Ferrigno looks almost the same in that pic, for sure it doesn't favor the argument that Ferrigno was any taller than 6'2 max peak... Yates is around 5'9, similar to Coleman, 5'10 at best... And yes, Clint Eastwood never looked taller than 6'2 peak to me, 6'4 claims are fantasyland, actors are usually very short, a guy like him would obviously towers over almost anyone...
Danimal176 said on 12/Apr/16

Jervis, I've never met Ciint Eastwood. And while I do know someone who co-starred with him in a movie, she expressed awe at his horizontal rather than his vertical prowess... But I find it most interesting how Sergio Leone (and others) filmed him from below to make him look towering. As towering, in fact, as the rock spires in Monument Valley. Do I believe he was ever, peak, six foot four? No. Simply because at a legit six four, in cowboy boots, which he wore for many movies, he would have been six five plus or six six. And he never, ever looked that. Up until the late 70's, with movies like, Every Which Way But Loose and Any Which Way You Can, he was lean. Really lean (see Coogan's Bluff), which accentuated the height (along with the cowboy boots). I'd figure him for, peak, six two or so. Which, in boots would help him pass for six four. What many don't understand is a legit six two is actually unusually tall in Hollywood - esp. back in his day. Even today there are not many legit six foot two actors (ahem, Arnold). I believe Clint was once one of them (no longer as time has taken its toll).

Key to everyone is that Arnold was a bodybuilder. You lose height as is but is progressed with that type of wear and tear.


I basicly agree with this, but isn´t it strange that Ralf Möller only lost about a cm from peak?

I think there´re much more keys to find.
Alucard said on 11/Apr/16
Just watched Terminator Genisys, nice flick overall, i think better than T3 and probably Salvation... Jai Courtney, who is around 6' max, if not shorter, was clearly taller than Arnold being barefoot, Arnold with boots, what that makes him? 5'9-5'10? So he lost about 4 to 5 inches of height since his younger days, how is that even possible? Judging from that Conan The Barbarian pic, if Sven-Ole Thorsen is really 6'4-6'5 then Arnold must be upgraded too! They look almost the same, so Arnold was what now, 6'3, 6'4 or even 6'5? Lol, ok... Evidence about him being around 5'11 in his prime? Easy, Lucille Ball's video from 1972 or Arnold in every year he competed as a bodybuilder... Stallone was never over 5'7 all his life, at best, without outrageous lifts and tricks...

Canson: "Key to everyone is that Arnold was a bodybuilder."

Well, yes, and the key to that is that 'professional' bodybuilders lie about their height and their measurements in order to fool the most people to spend the most money watching them. If you doubt this, why was Joe Weider, the head of Arnold's bodybuilding federation and Arnold's business partner, required to pay repeated 1/2 million dollar fines to the United States government for false advertising claims concerning his bodybuilding products (he was a convicted snake-oil salesman)? Follow the money, and the money was in the pushing and promoting of fake stats. This is the entertainment business. Not the truth business. So, Arnold was never six foot two in his lifetime, but he pretended he was for fifty years. And for those who say, 'Well, he really wasn't lying because he was six foot one and one-half." No, he wasn't. Ever. Despite a lifetime of getting paid to pretend he was something he wasn't, his acting "skills", such as they are, only extend so far...

Yes Harold I'm aware about Basile's other claims and specialty the one about the young teen in Australia.

It is possible that Arnold might have been 6'1.5 in his youth but it wouldn't surprise me if he was 6' or a tad shorter.

Lol sorry guys I thought I had some interesting information about Basile measuring Arnold back in the day but I noticed Rob has it up at the top already.

Harold since you worked in Hollywood what height would you say Stallone is?? What have you heard.

Yes, Canson, look at the photo of Arnold dwarfed by Barkley and note, in the photo, that it is shot so that footwear is not visibile. How convenient for the Fanboys. Hint: Sir Charles does not wear cowboy boots. Further hint: he never needed to.

Lucille reaches his nose as HeightcrazyRed6ft proved with that image. That's 7 inches so 6'1" is relaible if she was 5'6".

There is plenty of proof here supporting anything from 6'0.5"-6'1.5" for peak height. If you guys want to be taken serious with your 5'11-6' peak claims then start posting evidence. I wish you luck.

5'11" flat today though as he can look shorter at times with bad posture and other times taller ( big shoes).

@Danimal: don't give up. I wholeheartedly agree with you. Someone in his 70s that I know met Arnold in his prime and yes he was 6'1 then. People who say he wasn't are crazy. My relative also was 6'1 (looked him dead in the eye and said "we were the exact same height back then" and has also gotten down to 5'11 and change in his ripe age.

Key to everyone is that Arnold was a bodybuilder. You lose height as is but is progressed with that type of wear and tear. Look at the picture of Arnold with Charles Barkley. That's less than 4" diff.
Alex said on 6/Apr/16
Jesus, just see the video of Arnold with Lucille Ball, he's clearly a 5'11 guy, nothing more. He never was 6'0 or 6'1 in all his life. About Ferrigno, he was a solid 6'3 barefoot, not 6'4.
Harold said on 6/Apr/16
And, if you do your research, The Real Annonymous, you'll see that Vince Basile also calls Schwarzenegger a statutory rapist. That puts you in a tough position; if you believe him on one thing and not the other, you are selective (and thus dishonest) in what you choose to believe. You say Basile 'measured Arnold.' No, you don't know that. What you know is he claims to have measured him. Those are two different things. Reality check, Fanboys; if Arnold ever in his life had been six foot one point five (which is lower than the height he claimed for himself), walking around in his beloved cowboy boots, he would have been around six foot three. And there is not a person on this planet who ever said the guy was ever six foot three. To the Fanboys who claim my stand is 'personal' against their geriatric hero, actually, my stand is against liars, whether they be height liars, marriage liars, steroid liars, or any other B.S. artists who profit off of the gullibility of the sheep who don't call them out on their lies. The fake tan doesn't make the man. But the fakeness of it all certainly is consistent.
Alucard said on 5/Apr/16
Unbelievable, so everyone naturally can lose INCHES of height just aging, ok... Yes, Arnold had surgeries, but what about the video with Lucille Ball? Better ignore it, the truth can be painful... She was already old, Arnold in his his prime, she was what 5'6 at best? Arnold doesn't look over 5'11, period... Yes, surgeries can be obviously debilitating, but they can put you back on track with prothesis without losing anything in height... Just for your info, Frank Zane was around 5'7, he was just a bit taller than 5'6 Mike Mentzer and very close to Oliva who himself was 5'7-5'8...
Harold said on 5/Apr/16
Don't quit, Danimal176. Just because Arnold went AWOL during his military service and quit when the going got rough, doesn't mean you have to. Fight on, if you believe in your cause. Though using capitals for your verbs as if you're shouting your opinion doesn't help. This is like a child resorting to screaming when he doesn't get his way. Or arguing that your 11.5 year devotion to this site indicates a more valid opinion. Perhaps it indicates the utter absence of a life. But fight on, Fanboys. It gives you something to live for. Something to wake up for. Something to believe in. We honor your commitment. And your utter gullibility.
THE REAL ANNONYMOUS said on 4/Apr/16
Vince Basile who is no fan of Arnold actually measured Arnold at 6'1.5 before a contest. To this day he confirms that measurement as being true even back then even though he does not care for him.
Vince Basile was a member of the Iron Age forum as well as the Get big forum and has confirmed that measurement numerous times!

Arnold is now 5'10"-5'11" max? George St. Pierre is listed at 5'10" from the UFC and in this picture Click Here they are both the same height in Arnold's home (no point in wearing lifts in his house). So Arnold must of lost 1-2 inches in height due to old age.
5'13.5 said on 4/Apr/16
@Smarty Bodybuilding or having a lot of mass (Muscle andor fat) can easily make someone look proportionally shorter than they truly are, it's just an illusion.

@Josey wales I won't argue with you but in my opinion 5'11" at the very lowest now, 6'1.5" at peak.

@mystry solved "Could"a, woulda, shoulda. Don't make me laugh at your comment, no way his peak was only 5'10" range and there is no way he's 5'9" range now, look at his head size, it doesn't look very well proportioned with the rest of the body because he used to be quite a bit taller. That isn't the head size of an the average man of average height, come awwn, don't bullsh*t me. His head looks at least 9.5 inches to me, that isn't the usual head size of a 5'10" range man (Probably 8.7' for that height range).

@Harold Maybe Arnold was measured near the start of his day when we got the 6'2" "lie"? If he was 6'1.5" (Afternoon) then is it that amazing that he could be measured at 6'2"ish in the morning? You shrink temporarily throughout the day, you know, I think it's in the realm of possibility he could have been measured at an even 6'2" then, I think you are going a little overboard in your argument.
richie said on 3/Apr/16
@Danimal176 Agreed, Schwarzeneggers peak height was 6'1.5" with Ferrigno a weak 6'4", he had close to 3 inches on Arnold, anything less does not read true. Schwarzenegger's best buddy Ken Waller was just 6' and he had a good inch on him so anything less than 6'1" is simply not true...
Smarty said on 2/Apr/16
I believe arnold was ever alway below 6' 0'' in his entire life, he has never looked like a proper 6' 0'' guy. I have many friends who are 6' 0'' tall and none of them look short like Arnold did throughout his career.
Michaeljrocks said on 2/Apr/16
Ok, so I recently saw Arnold again at the Arnold Classic in Australia. This is the 2nd time I have worked that event & the 2nd time I've stood right near the terminator. Both times I have sized him up, checked his foot ware & compared his height to friends of mine who are also standing right next to him. My opinion. Arnold is what you guys would call a weak 6ft. He probably wakes up around the 6ft mark & drops slightly below during the day. Personally I would say Robs 5'11.5 listing is a little low but maybe his evening height? It's true Arnold is slightly shorter than most people would expect when meeting him in real life, but he is not a small man at all. He is still in great shape & so close to 6ft he should claim it. He really did seem to have an inch over my friend who is 5'11 & a solid 3 inches on my 5'9 buddy. In his youth he could have easily measured 6'1 & his hair probably bought him up to his 6'2 claim.

Just to set the record straight for all the newbies, Arnold WAS 6'1.5"-6'1.75" at his peak. Lou Ferrigno WAS 6'4". Good luck to all the older posters who have the time and energy to offer up pictures and proof of the facts to all of the new influx of people on this site. I've been doing it for 11.5 years on here. I'm done.

Hee hee, that's gold, Harold. :-) . Weider was seen as a bit of joke here in Australia, particularly his laughable "Weider Principles". Talk about naming things that existed for years. By his logic, walking or squating down to have a dump was a Weider Principle.
Anyway.... I still think the 1980 Olympia final 6 photo is one of the best pieces of evidence of his height back then, even though his head is tilting down a little. All six guys are obviously barefoot, and they look to be standing pretty much exactly the same distance from the camera. It's a great front-on shot. Surely we can find out the heights of the other 5 guys.
I like the theory that that his big suits make him look short. Also, I have a theory had he has a huge head, which also makes him look small. :-) This wasn't noticeable when he was young and huge, but since he's atrophied quite a bit, it stands out. I don't really care how tall he is; I just find it amusing.

With tilt corrected, imo 5´10.5" today is a pretty good estimation for Arnie, no trolling range...

'Cowboy boots aren't lifts!' so they cry,
Sheep to a man, till the day they die.
'He was six foot two! That' s just what he said!'
Forgetting that a padded resume was his butter and bread.
How many lies does the man have to tell?
Before the Fanboys realize 'the king' has a story to sell.
'Arnold wouldn't con, he's a man of honor!'
Forgetting his ego comes with every dollar.
So hold on to your hero, Fanboys, so what if it's fraud,

A human wreck, a steroid calamity,
A moral disgrace, the Fanboy's fantasy.
Not a carpetbagger, a charlatan or a sham,

Harold said on 29/Mar/16
Only one problem with the Zane/Schwarzenegger height comparison. Zane is credited with five nine. Thus Schwarzenegger is six foot even. But who measured Zane? Joe Weider? The same lame-o liar that 'measured' Arnie at six foot two (what a joke). Sorry, but 'pro' bodybuilding's figures are just as fudged as 'pro wrestling.' No, it's not a conspiracy. It's simply good business to exaggerate the product. Elevating physical stature is important when you are trying to manufacture physical heroes. The fact that they are not what they are paid to say they are makes them, among other things, mortal. To get back to reality, there is no debate that Arnie is taller than Zane. But there is real debate about how tall Zane ever was, thus figuring out how tall Arnold was. Given Weider and his publicists lied about Schwarzenegger's height and Ferrigno's, and those two bodybuilders were only too happy to oblige the fib, there's no reason whatsoever not to believe that Zane's height is also 'padded.' .

Right now, in fact, my tinfoil hat is telling me that Mildred is desperately trying to get back in touch with Junior 31 in order for him to return 'the Arnold' to her. It's battery-operated and deserves it's resting place in Mildred's nightstand. What Junior31 has been using it for, I couldn't hazard to guess. My tinfoil hat only tells me so much.

Here's an interesting link about measurements of Mr Universe contestants in years 1965-1967.Feel free to go to 1966 Amateur Class One level.Arnie is the last one on the list,and listed as standing 6'1,weighing 220 pounds along with other body measurements(neck,arm,chest etc...),aged 19.So 185cm is a safe bet for a young Arnold,it seems,although if the measurements took place earlier in the day,then 184 or solid 6'0.5 isn't ruled out even in the 60's-70's...

Darren said on 27/Mar/16
I recently had a pro photo with Arnold at a black tie dinner, I'm a strong 5' 9.5 and had a one inch heal on, bring me to 5'10.5
In the photo, he towers me by at least 2 and a half inches, half of that inch id say was down to his dress shoes which were about 1.5 inch heals. Making Arnold around 6' 1 in the photo with me (ignoring the inch from his hair lol). Bear in mind the guy is 69 this year, I'd say it's safe to say Arnold is currently between 5'11.5 and 6ft. Definitely shrunk over the years, by what I reckon is at least one inch. So 6'1.5 in the 70s could be quite a fair estimate, but I'd personally guess around a 6'1 average through his movie career before he hit his mid 50s. That's my take after being right next to him. And one thing I must say I person, he is so wife even at 68. I'm a 40 inch chest which is average for my height, his chest must easily be 46-48 inches now! Can't bear to imagine how wide he was in his prime!!
Junior31 said on 27/Mar/16
To all those saying it's not possible to lose that much height. Forget looking at others who lost a ton, search Arnold's list of surgeries. It's absurd. And I'm not talking shoulder or foot. We are talking Leg, hip, back, knee, neck. All parts that effect height and posture. It's insane. Coupled with steroid use, a 50+ year body building career and oh yea, being 70, he's lucky only to lose 2.5-3 inches.

6'1 and change peak, and he's a mid 5'10 today.

ok, a closer look at Arnie and 175cm Frank Zane consistently shows about 8cm difference. So if correct, that would put Arnold's peak height at 183cm, which is tall for a bodybuilder. He does look shortish in the latest mobile strike add series, as in 178-180 cm.
His military cap almost dwarfs him. What's up with that?
Luke said on 26/Mar/16
Who cares how tall he is now, his peak height is what most people are interested in. By looking at pictures most importantly ones in which he is barefooted, you can tell that his proportions have changed. He looks squatter these days and its because like all old people, his body has lost a couple of inches in height. Every single picture of him when he was younger has not been manipulated in some way to make him appear taller. Like I have said numerous times, even in pictures of him in crowds before his fame he can be seen taller than most and that is in flat footwear. More interestingly is that you have now revealed that you also believe he had a nose job... Don't lose that tinfoil hat now.

Let's pretend, for the sake of speculation, that Arnie's current height is 5 foot 11 and one-half. If that is the case, in his 50 plus pairs of cowboy boots, with cowboy boots having, on average a one and one-half inch heel, that would put Arnold's walkaround height at six foot one. Forget, for a moment, the absurdity of an Austrian with dyed hair, capped teeth, botox, and a nose job wearing cowboy boots. Let's just concentrate on the added height with the high heels of cowboy boots (that's not including the possible lifts within the cowboy boots themselves). My question to the fawning fanboys is this: does Arnie actually look six foot one or so when he's parading around in his cowboy boots? If he does not look six one or so in his cowboy boots, doesn't this indicate to you that he is not, in fact, five foot eleven and one-half without his 'Munsters'? Come on, guys, some things are so obvious, even a fanboy can see them.
Alex said on 24/Mar/16
Many fans still love to think that Arnold was 187 cm. They think is normal to lose a solid 5 cm of height. This old photo shows Ferrigno next to Arnold. The difference is big. Ferrigno is about 188-189 cm barefoot.

Alex said on 24/Mar/16
You can lose some height with age, but it happens during 60-70 years old, but they are few cm, like 2 or 3 cm. You can lose more, just if you've got some serious back injuries.

Rob saw him around 06' he was already 84 years old by then and still 6'2"-6'3" which means he was for sure 6'4"-6'5" in his prime years and thats just going with average height loss in advancing years.

I think 187cm is pushing it to be honest. He always struck me as more 185-186cm. (Arnold that is not Mr Lee)

Actually, 187cm peak height for Arnold does make sense when looking at pics next to 5'9" Frank Zane, both barefoot.

Wow didn't realize we can lose so much height... Rob, do you think it's inevitable to lose height as we get older or, if following optimal diet/exercise (ie. yoga, pilates...) or is it possible to maintain peak height?

Also who knows what the DOP wanted when he filmed insude the truck , what angles he wanted. I think there is enough evidence to sugfest that botj tom and arnold are purty darm close n height , be it 5' or 6' or any in between.

Alucard it's a medical fact that people lose height with age look it up.Ag man in his nineties 6ft 2 was for sure 6ft 4 at least in his prime.
berta said on 22/Mar/16
Arnold feels like a guy who can look shorter than he is. when he is measured he is probably 2 c taller than he looks. peak: 186-7 and now 181-2

Or mebe tom arnold had the but lifts ?

James St.

Arnold's height is from his long legs. He actually has a proportionally short torso therefore making him look shorter while sitting than actors that are shorter than him while standing.
NBAer said on 20/Mar/16
@James St. You can't compare(generally speaking)height when both people are sitting inside a car,bus,plane etc even if they're right next to each other,torso and leg lengths differ alot amongst people,so naturally if someone say had very long legs,his sitting height would be considerably lower,and people the same height or close can have slightly different proportions,so sitting height usually has nothing to do with standing height,imo.It's the reason why alot of people(mostly women)look much taller when sitting rather than standing.

Just watching Formula 1/ Australia. Schwarzenegger was interviewed by German reporter Kai Ebel, who i can assure you is exactly as tall as i am (175-176cm) - Schwarzenegger was about 6-10cm taller so about 185cm seems to be right.
Alucard said on 19/Mar/16
So because Christopher Lee's page says 6'4.5 it must be true... Rob is doing a great job, but he himself would tell you that the heights on this site are based on estimation, answer/response and sometime pictures... Rob himself when he did met mister Lee said that he didn't look more than 6'2-6'3, yes he was old, but do you honestly think that people can lose 2-3 inches of height just with age? That's impossible unless some very serious irreparable spine/bones damage or condition, i don't even know is something like that exist... The same with Arnold, who today looks in the 5'10 range at best, and prople think that somehow magically he lost 3 or 4 inches, lol... Let's be serious here...

NBAer, yeah Thx. I couldn't spot her shoes during the tango scene but in the scene where she exits the plane, she clearly wears moderate-sized heels like you mentioned and their height difference is the same so you must be right.
Still can't understand why Tom Arnold looks so much taller than Arnold when both are sitting in the car... That's just weird.
Maybe Arnie wears mega-lifts but no butt-lifts?
jervis said on 17/Mar/16
Alucard look at Christopher Lees page,6ft4.5 that's it.Read the comments nobody agrees that lee was just 6ft3, I think your on your own with that estimate.As for More,he could have been 6ft flat because he was similar to Christopher Walkan,if he was it puts in to doubt Sean Connerys 6ft2 listing.
Luke said on 17/Mar/16
All of you must remember that Arnold had horrible posture back in the day. Shoulders rounded forward, neck jutting out etc and not only that but his shoulders hang very low in comparison to his clavicle insertion. Poor posture like that can take off an actual few inches off height as well as a perceived height loss and the hanging shoulders can add an additional perceived height loss. The guy was over 6 feet. There is way more proof to argue that he was in fact above 6 feet than under.
Alucard said on 16/Mar/16
Christopher Lee real height was around 6'3, a tall man obviously, just not 6'4 or even 6'5... Yes, Connery was/is around 6'1-6'2... Roger Moore was never over 6' peak, probably shorter, around 182-183cm peak height at most... Arnold was never 6'1 or 6'2, those are billed fantasy celebrity heights, he was around 5'11 peak, nothing more...

Google Tia Carrere Arnold Schwarzenegger images and you will see plenty of examples of Arnold being at least 5 inches taller than her.
NBAer said on 16/Mar/16
James St. said on 13/Mar/16
James,i watched that scene too,and Tia was wearing moderate-sized heels,probably giving her 5-6cm or so of height.Arnold was wearing dress shoes,with about 2-3cm maybe less footwear than Tia.I thought Tia was looking at Arnold's chin when Arnold didn't looked down on her,so i thought a 10cm(4inch) difference between them...Now,Rob has met Tia Carrere and estimated her at 171,i personally think she's 170 because with 1-inch footwear advantage,she's roughly the same height as Rob.
Combine all this,and Arnold could be just 12-13cm taller,maybe 14 at most,so anywhere in 182-184cm range(5'11.75-6'0.5) for a 90's Arnie is possible.

The video with Lucille Ball is the smoking gun,period. NO magic footwear on. Both pretty much same. 6-0" would be the absolute max on his prime height. A career built on nice ample footwear. Easy to look 6-2+" in those magic shoes/boots etc.2

Actually in that clip Arnold clearly has slightly more thicker footwear than Lucille Ball. So it seems like my estimate of 5' 11.75'' for Arnold's maximum peak height seems validated. His current height is around 5' 10'' - 5' 10.25''. So he did not lose any "magical" height as various fans of him like to believe, his height just dropped by 1.25''-1.5'' which absolutely makes perfect sense.

James St. said on 13/Mar/16
Rob, I just watched True Lies and if you look carefully, in the Tango scene with Tia Carrere at the beginning, we can see that she wears shoes with no heels, literally flat shoes. Despite that, her eyes reach the bottom of Arnold's nose. Since he's got at least an inch advantage in shoe and that she's about 5'8", wouldn't that make Arnold 5'9.5"?
What's weird is that Arnie looked half an inch taller than Tom Arnold when standing but looked 1 inch and a half shorter when sitting in the car. Probably lifts... What do you reckon?
Editor Rob: been a while since I watched the film

Exactly, Lucille is Barefoot at one point but Arnold has a slightly relaxed posture. But at no point do i see 7-8 inches between them which means he couldn't have been 6ft 2 or 6ft 1.5. In that youtube clip, he most likely stands at 6ft and he's in very thin soled shoes.
Alucard said on 11/Mar/16
Harold is absolutely right, in my opinion... Regarding Roger Moore, about 6' max peak, maybe shorter, got towered by 6'2-6'3 max Christopher Lee in The Man With The Golden Gun, was clearly shorter than Connery also... Kerry Von Erich didn't look much taller than 5'10-5'11 Ric Flair back in the days, even with lifts involved, i don't believe 6'2 for Von Erich, maybe 6'... Flair was billed at 6'3, lol...
bobbyh3342 said on 10/Mar/16
some of you guys are just haters Arnold is almost 70 so in the 60s he prolly was 6 1 range barefoot so walking around could claim 6'2 no prob you guys are posting pics of him 30 yrs after his prime. lol sorry guys but you cant beat gravity, it will win every time... oh and for the record women are the worst judges of height my ex was 5 9 and she used to think she was taller than my friends who were 6 feet. and most women guess me at 6 '2 when I'm just about 6'6 in street shoes 6'4.5 bf . Arnold was 6 1.5bf and can pull of 6 feet flat as a 70yr old man

Guest said on 9/Mar/16
One reason Arnold sometimes look squat, and therefore shorter than he is, is the loosely-tailored fit of his jackets. His chest and shoulders being large, he sometimes ends up with jackets that are too big for his frame, and therefore hang quite low on his arms and body, making him look shorter than a more nicely fitted jacket would. The picture at the top of this page is a good example of this point.

Yeah your right about it being way over 1/2 inch. To me it looked sometimes 1-1.5 inches in some scenes. So the most Sven could have been is 6'4.5" (194cm)

Still even if he was that still puts Arnie at 6'1.5" 186cm in that pic from Rampage. Sven at 6'4 " puts him at 6'1" .

Crazy people with their 5'11 peak height.
Rattajack said on 7/Mar/16
Respond to Curious: Arnold at his prime was 6' 1.5" and rounded it off to 6' 2''. His bodybuilding career and the natural aging process probably has something to do with his diminished height. Standing alone he still looks tall because of his narrow shoulders, I have to agree that his height now without the help of his "special shoes" is 5' 11.5" Rob got this one right.

Lowest peak I could believe is 185cm /6´0.75" after evening workout with heavey weights.
His normal low was imo 6´1"-6´1.25".

Today, in Robs pic with that 176/177cm guy I can see max 3cm difference, so 179/180 is Arnolds height today.
That also fits with how he looked next to Dennis Wolf.

He looks pretty compressed compared to his peak, so a 2-2.5" heightloss is quite believable.

Josey, extremism in the interest of truth is no vice. Just consider it a rhetorical device in order to prove a point: that the man in question is not, physically, the height he says he is. Does a deliberate prevarication about his height spill over into other areas of his life? One would have to be blind not to witness, over the last 30 years, that it does. Josey Wales, rebel outlaw, I appreciate your civil tone. You are a great example that one can disagree without being disagreeable. Now Jervis, I honestly don't think I could peg Roger Moore's height. What I will disclose is I worked in Hollywood and I worked in bodybuilding, so my skepticism about Arnold's 'peak height' and current height (or lack thereof) comes from experience with the exaggerations of the entertainment industry (to think that bodybuilding or pro wrestling is not part of the entertainment industry is absurd). Part of this problem of height exaggeration isn't necessarily the actor but his publicists, though all are trying to capitalize off of the action hero image, for those actors who make a living as being larger/stronger/tougher than mere mortals. Clint Eastwood's publicists got in trouble when they tried to promote his movie, Heartbreak Ridge, by lying that Eastwood spent the Korean War in the Special Forces. Actually, he spent the war as a swimming pool lifeguard stateside. Brian Dennehy flat out lied, repeatedly, about his military service and proclaimed he was a Vietnam Vet. He was not. For shame. So Arnie isn't the only actor intent on padding his resume through fraud. What's interesting to me is that people who met him were calling him out on the height issue 30 years ago, but no one really paid attention. I have to wonder, had the economy done better and had he left the governorship of California in triumph rather than personal and professional disgrace, would anyone have even mentioned his height (or lack thereof?). For those who believe I have a psychotic personal vendetta against an actor, I would disagree. What I object to is passing off lies as the truth. And, when getting called out on the lie, continuing to lie. In an actor, it's objectionable. In a politician, it's despicable.




Cool story bro.

Any way he was 6'1 and today 5'10.5-5'11

If you don't think that's possible for a 70 year old body builder/steroid abuser for 50 years of his life who had multiple back and knee surgeries (alla hulk hogan who lost 3 inches in height) you don't know much about height

Your language is of that of a guy with low self esteem and an issue with people's preference as in body building. Who cares. . I don't like arnold or care much for body building either but it's a height site not Dr Phil. Leg shaving and all that other stuff is clutching at straws to get your point across. We get it. There all about narcissism and over doing but his height is height. Look at pics and compare. There's plenty of people and athletes with similar age and wear and tear and surgeries with the same height loss and even more.

Yes, I put decimal point of too, are 2 inches not 2.5, but the result is always 5,08cm.
Maybe you have your own idea of mathematics, probably to your country will be fine, but at my home and everywhere 2 + 2 = 4 not 5.
However do the math together: 176-177 cm + 2 inches (5,08 cm) is 181-182 cm, so that has to do 5'10"(178 cm) or 5'11" ??
5'11" is 180.34 cm not 181 or even 182 cm.

Like I said there are no equally or more successful celebrities that trash talk about Arnold's height. Only lesser known ones that are grasping at straws to be in the news. He has definitely shrunk terribly as he has aged though.

abcd: How did you get that email????
Editor Rob: 'To: Mr Paul', it's just the email I got back from Vince 10 years ago now and has always been linked to from the top of the page.
NBAer said on 28/Feb/16
Rob,is the picture you're referring to with a fan named Jason Carroll??It's on an Edinburgh hotel, and Arnold looks a good 5cm taller than him i believe.If that's the one,Arnold does look 181-182 cm range next to him,if he's 176-177(the fan).
Editor Rob: no, see my previous post it's just a guy who goes to events and is over 5ft 9 near 9.5.
Dmeyer said on 28/Feb/16
i could see arnie legit 181cm today at night but no smaller , of course he could become 179-80cm within 5-10 years
NBAer said on 28/Feb/16
@Harold 176-177 cm is 5'9.5 range,NOT 5'8.
So if Arnold was around 5cm(2 inches) taller than Rob's friend,that would make him minimum 180 and max 182cm( somewhere in 5'11-5'11.5 range)...Sure, he might have worn lifts, we don't know,but saying Arnie is under 5'10 just doesn't seem realistic,IMO.

Great pic Rampage of Arnold with Sven in younger years. Is he 6 foot 4 you ask? No he isn't

He is listed here at 6 foot 5. Arnold does look 187 there...i still think 186 is a good shout for peak.

Yes, but this will get ignored by the majority of people

Not ignored, just discredited. Why would anyone believe one crony bodybuilder and swallow his six foot one and one-half inch malarkey and not believe fellow actress Sarah Douglas and her observation that Arnie is her own height (around five ten or so, maybe slightly less)? As soon as you see the crony bodybuilder refers to Arnie as a 'he-man,' that is all you need to know. I wouldn't call a man who shaves his legs, dyes his hair, caps his teeth, and grows his breasts bigger than his own mother a 'he-man.' But perhaps you travel in different circles...

Rob,
Given your friend at a convention recently did the grip and grin photo op with Arnie and Arnie topped out near two inches taller than your 176-7 cm friend, that would make Arnie around five foot ten, or, gasp, slightly less. Time for an adjustment for his title page? Doesn't sound like five foot eleven and1/2 to me.
---------------

You don't know even do the math. 176-177 cm + 2.5 inch (5 cm) are about 181-182 cm, so what about 5'10 "??? But come on..
dmeyer said on 27/Feb/16
Rob çan you show us thé pic of arnie and your 176-7cm friend
Editor Rob: I'll blank him out but to put it into perspective, I'll show how he appears with Ted DiBiase at the same photoshoot I was at: Is Arnie really 5ft 10?...the guys hair is like 0.5-0.6 thick style in person.
jervis said on 27/Feb/16
2 inches is around 5 cm that would make Arnold around 181 or 182 cm,5ft10 is 178cm so Rob is bang on.

Arnie same height or max 1cm taller than 5´11.25"/1,81m Dennis Wolf - but Arnie is in pretty solid footwear!
Barefoot max 179cm/ 5´10.5" there

Editor Rob: was speaking to a convention acquaintance recently who paid the 600 quid for him and his partner to get a photo with Arnie up in Edinburgh. In the photo Arnie was near 2 inches taller and this guy is about 176-7cm.

So 5´11.25" / 181cm is what I get out of this, without information about footwear.
Editor Rob: it was a dress event so they wore shoes.

The Fanboys are in crisis mode at present. "Arnold at five foot ten (or slightly less? How could this be? It must be because of decades of deadlifting! Not lying for 50 years, deadlifting for 50 years!!!" But there is good news to come from what, for Arnie Fanboys, is bad news. From now on, you'll realize the only 'sport' more corrupt than pro wrestling, when it comes to height measurements, is pro bodybuilding. Since neither is actually a sport, your local newspaper won't cover them as a sport. For a reason. Lesson learned. According to Rob's paragraph at the top of the page, Arnie insisted he was over six foot one-half inch in 2013. Has he now dropped two and one-half inches in three years? Uh, how gullible is his audience? I've said it before and I will stick to it: Schwarzenegger peaked at a 'towering' five foot eleven (which is actually really tall for a great bodybuilder, which he was. And he's now around five ten (give or take a cm). The mystery isn't how much he's 'shrunk.' Because he was never near six two to begin with. He simply told his audience what they wanted to hear. And made a fortune from it. Gotta give him credit for knowing his audience. And milking them for all they are worth. As great a bodybuilder as he was for his era, he was an even better salesman. And, I think it's clear, entertainer. Consider yourself entertained.
Harold said on 26/Feb/16
177 cm plus 2 inches is not five ten and one-half. It's five ten. Time for a realistic current height for Arnie at the top of the page. 5'11.5" is only in his dreams. Oh, that's right, he's six foot two, or, "peak, six one and one-half"). ROTFL
Harold said on 26/Feb/16
I will rather trust an actress with integrity who never sold steroids or never used a spouse for their own career advancement. An actress like Sarah Douglas, who actually knew Arnie and pegged him at her own height, five foot nine and change. Unlike Arnie, she wasn't trying to sell anything. Including him as a fake, fraudulent product. Sometimes, the truth hurts. Cover your ears with your Conan pillows. Draw your Commando curtains closed. The truth is coming and the fanboys clearly can't handle it. This just in: the Tooth Fairy doesn't have wings and a wand either.

Eventually, Rob will be at a signing convention and Arnie's need for admiration/adulation will be so great, he will need to attend. And when Rob takes a photo with him and takes in Arnie's footwear, I will believe the height. Until then, it's all P.R., fawning fanboys, or browbeating haters. Each has their own agenda. Or their own gullibility or naivite. Or axes to grind. Their was a lot of money invested and a lot of money made in making the guy out to be larger than life. And he was only too happy to oblige the yearning of his fans. He told them what they wanted to hear. He made a career off of it. In his own life, he turned fantasy into fact (through emigration, steroids, plastic surgery, turning marriage into a career/publicity move). Eventually, those interested will have to separate fact from fiction. Unless they simply prefer fiction. In that case, reality bites.

Yes and that's why he can't be 5'11.5 or 182cm rob. As I said I think he is 5'10.5 today. The 5'11.5 just isn't realistic anymore. The peak debate will keep going on and on and on but today it's clear, he's nothing more then 5'10.5

Arnold was 187cm and Lou was 193-194cm (more the latter IMHO). There was about 2-3in between them in reality.
They were all barefoot in the gym...Arnold was still the tallest guy there. No it's not propaganda as far as height is concerned lol.
The antics were all scripted though
NBAer said on 25/Feb/16
In an appearance he made on the Conan O'Brien show in 1999 he didn't look that much shorter than Conan...I thought he was about 3 inches shorter than him(Conan), and apparently the famous presenter was and still is 6'4, so that would make a 90's Arnie a 6'0-6'1 range guy peak...I still think Arnold was 6'0.5 peak and around 5'10-5'10.5 now nearing 70.
JM said on 25/Feb/16
That Washington Post quote is a piece of nonsense that doesn't even mention a source. Did they measure Arnold, and provide proof of it? It's one thing to say he's 5'6", 5'10" or 6 foot anything. Just read this page to see any or all of that. Quite another to prove it. People will believe what they want to believe, even the height of a man that they've never met, and one way or another there's no talking sense into them.
josey wales said on 24/Feb/16
I will rather trust Robs estimate of Arnolds height than a sociologist opinion which got grabbed by a journolist and put into a newspaper whose job it is to create interist and or stir the pot in an effort to sell
more papers ... Did this sociologist submit unquestionable proof or evidence of this claim ?

Arnolds peak height was 186cm. ~187.5 right out of the bed, so he rounded up to 188cm (6'2).
Today he is no more then 181 cm.
Btw: He was listed 6'1 in a Guinness Book of World Records before becoming famous.
Harold said on 22/Feb/16
Pumping Iron is, as we all learned, a staged and rehearsed propaganda piece. A documentary it is not. The 'evidence' in Pumping Iron is none of the bodybuilders take steroids since the word is never mentioned and the bodybuilders are never seen shooting up. Does that blatant lie of an omission indicate to you that, quite possibly, the agenda was to make the bodybuilders as 'sellable' as possible to the audience? Do you have any idea what else was omitted? I do. And it isn't pretty. The billed height in that movie is a joke. Arnie at six two and Lou at six five? What a joke.
Harold said on 22/Feb/16
This is from the Washington Post from 17 years ago: "Sociologist Ralph Keyes has shown that men often claim to be taller than they are. That goes double for celebrities. Men's Health magazine compared claimed heights to actual heights and discovered that Arnold Schwarzenegger was 5-10, not 6-2, that Charles Bronson was 5-7, not 5-11, and Burt Reynolds 5-8, not 5-11."

So, you can trust your NABBA or IFBB pageant program or you can trust the Washington Post. I'll trust the Washington Post.

Nigel, would that be the same Austrian army from which Arnie fled and admittedly went AWOL during his compulsory military service? :-)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/16
I'm not an fanboy but I'm also not jumping on the bandwagon of "Arnold's height is a myth". All the evidence is in Pumping Iron is there.
Luke said on 20/Feb/16
Well he did not just compete in the IFBB. There was also the NABBA organisation that had little to no association with Weider as well as smaller ones. The printed height was actually from a NABBA Mr. Universe contest if I can remember correctly. I'm completely aware that sports are generous with their measurements and I mean generous not ridiculously exaggerated. Even the UFC slightly exaggerates their fighters heights by an inch or so. Pro wrestling is a completely different ball game that should not even be brought up in this discussion since its so over the top and no one with a brain in their skull actually believes their listed stats. Like I and a lot of other people have pointed out, I understand that measurements in bodybuilding are rounded up. A 6'1 was rounded up to a 6'2 and a 21.5 inch arm was rounded to 22". Nobody is disagreeing with you. Now what is hard to swallow is that you are trying to convince people that not one, not two, but a whole sport full of people added at least 3" to their claimed height as well as every other measurement on their body. This lie is and would have been impossible to maintain to the general public since they were not hidden away behind closed doors. They hung out on the beach ALL the time and everyone interested enough in the sport would come to Venice and meet or train with. This information about their true heights would have gotten out by these situations by themselves let alone the exposure they would get while at competitions or product campaigns. All of the hard core fans would be crushed if they realised that their idols were all weak manlets that were not much bigger than the general public. There were definitely a lot of really short bodybuilders back then but there were also taller ones. You can easily separate the tall ones from the short ones based on their proportions and body structure. Bodybuilders now are almost exclusively the short, stocky types as they can pack on the most bulk. If you were to compare Arnold at his peak to a current bodybuilder like Phil Heath you can immediately identify the difference in limb length separating their heights. Now I know you are rolling your eyes at us and calling us fan boys etc. but if I am not placing my idols on an untouchable pedestal. Sylvester Stallone is another idol of mine and he is a munchkin of no more than 170lbs in his younger days in my books. Although you will argue tooth and nail about this, I don't know why you cant accept the completely understandable average height of 6'1 and continue to throw out unnecessary jabs about his personal life that are completely irrelevant to the discussion.
Nigel said on 19/Feb/16
I'm sure the Austrian Army would've measured him, so we simply need a contact with records from 1965 :-)
josey wales said on 18/Feb/16
Paul pro bodybuilders do net get measured for height and since there is no weight classes not weighed as well. But there are organisations who did measure the height of bodybuilders like NABBA because there was (is?) Height classes. Arnold did compete in that organisation esp when he was competing in Europe.
Harold said on 17/Feb/16
Ah, yes, Luke, yes. Trust the promoters of the IFBB about the height and measurement of their competitors. You'd be a fool not to. Just as you would be a fool not to trust Vince McMahon and the pro wrestling program in your hands. Which is why Hulk Hogan was, what, six seven? And Andre the Giant was what, seven foot four? Because your program tells you so. And so what if Schwarzenegger's business partner, Joe Weider, the man who owned and ran the IFBB, repeatedly paid 1/2 million dollar fines to the US government for fraud. Hey, it's not as if he had to shell out money for lying. Oh, that's right , he did. And those Hollywood publicists? Those so-called, 'liars-for-hire'? They get paid to tell the truth. Really. I've got a tip for you: meet a few bodybuilders and pro wrestlers in person. Then gauge that billed height versus their real height. I don't think anyone would begrudge Arnie, or anyone else for fibbing about an inch or so. But three or four inches? The miracle is the fibbing finally caught up to him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Feb/16
He could pull off 6ft2 with that 6ft4 bodybuilder in the picture I posted if he was doing the same pose...

I always wondered, do professional bodybuilders get their heights measured before a contest?
Harpy said on 16/Feb/16
Here Arnold is with this Youtube blogger guy called Lord Aleem.

Click Here

Arnold looks in the above picture about 2-2.5 inches shorter than Lord aleem. Now Lord aleem has a video with Amir khan (boxer) here
Click Here
In the above video he looks to me about 4-5 inches taller than Amir khan. Which means that Lord aleem is between 6' 0''- 6' 1'' tall. So if we assume that both arnold and Lord aleem were wearing same footwear (which I highly doubt in case of Arnold) then according to above picture he is no more than 5' 10'' tall, but could be even 5' 9.75'' tall in case he has more footwear than lord aleem the chances of which are quite high.
So it is done Arnold is currently no more than 5' 10'' tall and the generous peak height for him would be between 5' 11.5''-6' 0'' assuming that he lost 1.5''- 2'' due to old age which I personally doubt since people usually lose only about 1 inch maximum till the age of 60 unless they suffer from some serious back injuries.
Nigel said on 16/Feb/16
I'm surprised that this topic still gets so much traffic. :-) Arnold's height when he was young should be one of the easiest to figure out, because, as has been said, there are countless photos of him standing barefoot in all those bodybuilding contests next to other reasonably well-known muscle men. Probably the best pic that comes to mind is the front-on shot of the 1980 Mr Olympia final seven. Surely the heights of Frank Zane, Chris Dickerson, Mike Mentzer, et al, could be found out. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Arnold was over 6ft1 when he was younger; what's more interesting than whether or not he ever lied about height is how much, and why, he's shrunk
NBAer said on 16/Feb/16
Now that i'm thinking about it,maybe Arnie wasn't fibbing about his height back in his prime...I mean,what if he really measured at about 187 in some point of his youth years??
Ofcourse,that would be an in-shoes measurement imo,so that still makes it a lie,but if he really measured about 187-188 in big sneakers or boots,it seems fairly logical he would claim 6'2...I personally believe he was 183-184cm peak barefoot,then measured at some point around 186-187 in footwear(probably boots),and simply round it off to "6'2" and claims it ever since.As for nowadays,he honestly looks no more than 178-179cm at most,and next to 182(?) Jimmy Fallon,he looked about 177-178 to me in that QVC clip.
Luke said on 15/Feb/16
Rampage, we have to believe that every single person that has anything to do with bodybuilding is actually 5 inches shorter than their claimed height. That is only logical right? If u compare Sven to Peter Kent and then Arnold in pictures, all of their heights roughly match up with one another and their listed height so it would appear that all material proves that the listed heights are pretty accurate. That is what they want you to believe at least and by they I mean the lizard people that control Hollywood. The only explainable reason for this bind boggling fallacy is that they force every actor to add lifts to their shoes and tromp around with the claim of 7 feet tall. >_>

Arnold is an entertainer who act in movies. He has saud on many occadions he never takes hisself serious. Jim milius has said arnold yold him in conan he is not an actor and he (milius) must rell him what facial expressions to use, how to use the dialogue etc. I will not use what you said to argue arnold be an impersonator or liar. By what you use as avidence, you can judge most business corporate people with . Let slone the hords of pro sports people and entertainers all over the world. As for bodybuilding fans, i think you are out of line in judging them but what is your standards. I know we dissagree alot on the topic of his height but i always value your posts in the way a competitor would view a respected tuff opponent.
Take care now..

If anyone would like to watch twins (1988) you can clearly see Arnold and Kelly Preston, she's listed on this site as being 5ft 5.5, add her shoe advantage, 3 inch heels... This makes her 5ft 8.5, possibly 5ft 9. Arnold has 3-4 inches on her and that's with him wearing dress shoes or similar so we can do simple maths. 5ft 8.5 for Kelly wearing heels, add 4 inches. This equals 6ft 0.5 for Arnold, but we have to subtract his shoe advantage of around an inch. 5ft 11.5 - 6ft in 1988.

Check it out, at no point does kelly Prestons head reach less than Arnold's eye brows so he never had more than 4 inches on her.

I agree he has looked taller but there's so much conflicting height fluctuations in films. So I doubt he's lost as much as people think.

As for me being a 'liar', Rampage, I'll tell you what: 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. Not very bright, are you?
MOF said on 12/Feb/16
Check out his scene with actor James Olsen in Commando. According to imdb James Olsen is/was 6'3" and his height is mentioned in the imdb trivia in connection to another role because the actress playing against him was so short in comparison. But in his scenes with Arnold and in one particularly where they walk besides one another, Olsen is clearly much taller. I would say three inches at least, no way Arnold was 6'1.5" back in the day. Arnold has always given me six footer impression, maybe slightly over six but no more. That's just an opinion of course.
Ambidextrous said on 11/Feb/16
He looks a strong 6'0" to me...he is not shorter than that....there were many people who looked taller than him in his movies....but my estimate is 6'

Legit 6ft4 Lou Ferrigno had no more than 3 inches on Arnold during their younger days, so anything under a 6ft1 peak height for Arnold doesn't make sense. So 6ft1-6ft1.5 peak.
Luke said on 11/Feb/16
You come across as hating him greatly Harold. I'm not sure why per say but unless someone was to live in the Philippines, although 6'1 is tall, it is not mind-blowingly or noticeably tall. Yes someone of 6'1 height will stand above a lot of people in a crowd but hardly grants the statement that everyone in Hollywood is shorter than that. How is that truly possible when almost 15% of the U.S population is above 6'. Even more notably, most celebrities are of European decent, the countries that hold the title for the tallest populations in the world so It undoubtedly is even higher than that in the celeb community. You've got conspiracy theories on the brain dude. Arnold was really tall in bodybuilding and above average in height to the rest of the public. Yes he has shrunk, we can all agree that he is shorter than 6'1 or 6'2 now. In bare feet he was tall, in shoes he was tall, in cowboy boots he was tall...

The last observation from my side, I am still unable to understand how in real life different people on different occasions have underestimated him to be 5' 6'' or 5' 8'' guy. If he was ever 6' 1''-6' 2'' guy then he should get his name registered in Gains book of world record for being the only 6' 1''-6' 2'' person in the world whose height has been underestimated down to 5' 6''. From my memory I cannot recall a single case in my entire life where even a 5' 10'' guy would have been underestimated to 5' 6''. The maximum the people underestimate a person's height is usually between 1'-3''. I am 5' 9'' and the worst I have been underestimated in my entire life is 5' 8''. I think this is a strong evidence that there is something extremely fishy about Arnold's height calims.

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."

This quotation is from Taylor Swift, but if Arnie were honest, it would have come directly from his mouth:

"I'm 5'11'', so when I wear heels, it's definitely a really good view that I have. I'm like 6'2 when I wear heels, so I tend to wear cowboy boots a lot."

Given Celebrity Heights has introduced the world to neologisms such as "the Bieber Booster" and "Bieber Boots," isn't it high time we award 'the Arnold' to the celebrity most deserving? Now, we know of the Oscar (which is given only to actors who can actually act, so Arnold won't win one this lifetime). And we know of the Pulitzer (which Arnold will never win since you have to actually be able to author a book without a ghost-writer). However, given 'the Arnold' will be awarded, on an annual basis, to the celebrity who most egregiously promotes his height at least three to four inches more than the truth, ladies and gentleman of the academy, may I present the first winner of 'the Arnold' to (the envelope, please, ma'am)...ARNOLD! No one deserves it more. Not Justin. Not Cara Delevingne, not Sly, not JCVD. No, the Arnold has never had a more deserving winner.

Never confuse the IFBB with the NFL or MLB (we won't even mention the NBA) A tall bodybuilder is five foot ten. A really short MLB or really short NFL player is five foot ten. Which is one more reason why bodybuilders are paid peanuts and MLB/NFL'ers are paid millions.... In other words, the fact that Schwarzenegger looked like a giant in Pumping Iron only indicates that a man of average height looks tall in that venue. In other words, a giant among midgets is not a giant when he leaves the midget convention...

May very well have been 6ft1½-2 at mid-day in the 70's. 6ft1 max is a joke.


No it´s not, He claimed this height himself, also 1,85m in Germany wich I think was his lowest height . 1,87cm early morning yeah
6´2" never ever PERIOD :)

Another thing I think confused people back in the day was Arnold's height in comparison with Sylvester Stallone's most notably when they got together for the planet Hollywood events. Sylvester Stallone was always either the same or slightly shorter than Arnold which gave the appearance that Arnold was also short but this was because Sly always wore lifts that made him at least 6 feet.

The funny thing is he himself claimed about being 6' 2'' hardly 10-15 years ago which is a crazy claim on his part. How on earth any sensible person in the world would assume that a 6' 2'' guy is only 5' 6'' unless the guy is actually 5' 9'' - 5' 10'' which would mean that Arnold overestimated himself to be 6' 2'' while some senseless person underestimated him to be 5' 6'' during his time as Governor.

He looked just as tall as Tom Arnold, Carl Weathers both legit 6'1 men. Noone has ever argued for 6'2 here but anything under 6'0.75 peak is impossible. Unless you want to believe that he was in lifts 24/7, the guy wasn't Vin Diesel.

If you do a little internet digging in terms of detective work, you'll find that Roger Ebert, the much-loved and respected movie critic, when told of Arnold's 'billed height' of six foot two, replied, as one who actually knew him, "No way. Five ten or five eleven." Eventually, it's not a conspiracy. It's simply reality. But then again, who goes to the movies for a strong dose of reality?

But Josey, Arnold himself said he was six foot two and he was unequivocal about

Let's review: "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."

Are you calling the man a liar?
