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 such as The Terminator, Predator, True Lies and Total Recall. He says of his stature, "I'm 6'2". I've heard rumors that I'm really much shorter in real life - like 5'6" or something like that - which is ridiculous. I can assure you this is not the case. People look up to me, and not just because I do a lot of work in the community. I mean, most people really LOOK UP to me."

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

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

Hey you're the one saying this stuff, about masculinity and homo-eroticism......the only thing that concerns me and others are cold facts. That's all we need, but if you need to bring that other stuff into it, then whatever floats your boat. A bunch of you actually remind me of Bennet from Commando, and I'm not sure about that guy.........

You keep saying their eye levels are almost the same in these photos, so I've had to go to the trouble drawing lines to reveal what you're obviously incapable of seeing. I don't mind, as some special people need a little more help. Do they look the same now? Are you going to stop this incessant nonsense now because it's getting old. Did you just glance at those photos for a brief moment, because I can't think you used your cursor or a straight edge to come to that conclusion. If you did, you didn't do a very good job.

As I suspected Arnold was resting his posture during a lot of the ceremony, and the video makes it even more clear. He's stooping his head and slouching in order to better engage the shorter man. We see Arnold raise his posture for a brief moment though, and both are standing in similar fashion.

Arnold's cranium height is based on his chin to eye level, as your eyes are actually at the center of your head. I've based Lee's cranium height on Arnold's, so he's probably got a bonus as Arnold has the bigger head and no charge of favoritism. No crying that I've chopped off Lee's skull, as he obviously has bigger hair. In this comparison Arnold does look about 3 inches taller.

@GUY

Could you please stop fooling people around with your poor measuring skills. I have done the same by drawing lines on the photos and here is the result:

Click Here

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

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

Now in the picture below, Arnold is standing next to Francois Hollande who is around 5'6. Here you can see the difference of 3-4 inches.

He looks about bang on 5ft11 with him. He his def. not 6ft today. Arnold said goodbye to 6ft probably in 2006.

@GUY ... i am looking at your comparison photos and wondering ... i had heard about color vision deficiency but never heard of measurement vision deficiency in medicine before. But my friend you are my test subject from now on.

What ever happened to the hero worship in this world.

@Guy ... Reading your totally absurd argument in the last post, i can officially refer you to an ophthalmologist or maybe a psychiatrist also, for the hallucinations you undergo every now and then.
I have left the case for the audience here to judge since i can't understand what category of intellect you fall in. Obviously its a new category we need to create.
Anyways, the eye level in both the pictures is almost the same and i stand with my argument that Arnold is in 5'10 range.
ANyways, good luck with your Hallucinations.

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

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

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

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

Whats simple is that he was measured at 6'1.5" barefoot at night in 1969. I do agree that hes not over 5'11" today and that's being generous.

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

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

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

6'1.5" was and still IS considered tall.

What are you on about. There has been plenty of pics from the last year of Arnold next to legit 5'11" and 6'0" men.

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

Years ago, during Desert Storm, there was a ridiculous mouthpiece for Saddam's regime named, "Baghdad Bob." Bombs would be exploding directly behind him and the Iraqi troops slaughtered while he stood before the camera denying what we were actually seeing and singing Iraq's military praises and how they would win the war. Well, the mystery of Baghdad Bob's disappearance has been solved. He is now calling himself "Guy" and relentlessly and hopelessly waving his hands in the air and poking fingers in the sky about a geriatric 'action star's' supposed height. It's really a fascinating case of hero worship. So what if to anyone else's eyes, Schwarzenegger is in the five foot ten range. Believe Guy. The Baghdad Bob of our generation. Here's to you, "Guy."

You said they're the same height in that photo. That's what you said, so go trolling somewhere else. Why would someone make a statement where the observation clearly shows otherwise. Lee looks at least 2 1/2 inches shorter than Arnold there, as his eyeline is below Arnold's nostril. If they were the same height, and this is a lesson for you, their eye heights would be at the same level. Lee is listed everywhere as 178cm or 5'10", but his official stat is 177 cm or almost 5'9 3/4".

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

He is the same height as Arnold. Again if you look at Bollywood actor Aamir khan who is about 5 foot 3 inches or 5 foot 4 inches tall in real life, he is standing next to Arnold here:

If you look at the pictures above, Arnold doesnot seem to be a guy who is 6 foot tall.

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

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

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

This is pretty much your whole argument

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

Exactly Jim, being tall in the bodybuilding world is not the same as beijg tall in the everyday world... Bodybuilding is a short men sport, very few famous "tall" bodybuilders in history, like 6' Paul Dillett, 6'2-6'2.5 Ferrigno, 6' Gunter Schlierkamp, 5'11 Dennis Wolf, and so on... Arnold at 5'11-5'11.5 (same height as Reg Park, also billed at 6'1), towered over his opponents, like 5'8 Oliva, 5'8 max Zane, 5'8 max Mentzer, 5'9 Nubret for example, only Ferrigno was taller, that's why he was considered tall, and for bodybuilding he was...

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

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

Basically you've established the heights of these people according to your head.. hahahah, incredible!



Sure, bodybuilders are all short and Reg Park billed height was 6 ft. and not 6'1 ".. yeah, right!

So even Steve Reeves was 6 ft. and not 6'1" as written everywhere.

So even Rob has wrong about Reg Park listed height.



After all, you should not believe everything you hear around, in fact anyone who tells you the Earth is not flat?

Ron B. says on 9/Dec/14


Jim, Arnold was quite tall for a body builder. His photos clearly show this. He looked almost as tall as Lou Ferrigno while they posed together. The guy was at least 6'1" in his prime.



Jim says on 9/Dec/14


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

NNA says on 9/Dec/14


Rob you have listed Lee Byung-hun as 5 foot 9 inches tall. Now if you look at him standing next to Arnold here:

He is the same height as Arnold. Again if you look at Bollywood actor Aamir khan who is about 5 foot 3 inches or 5 foot 4 inches tall in real life, he is standing next to Arnold here:

If you look at the pictures above, Arnold doesnot seem to be a guy who is 6 foot tall.

Jim says on 8/Dec/14

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

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

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



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

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



Danimal says on 7/Dec/14


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



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

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

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

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



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



Maximus says on 6/Dec/14


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

Kman says on 6/Dec/14


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



Lucio says on 6/Dec/14


Fran77, Rodney, Alucard,

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

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



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

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



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



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

Why don't you bring good pictures like these?

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

lelman says on 6/Dec/14


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



Joe says on 5/Dec/14


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

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

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

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

GUY says on 5/Dec/14


Fran77 says on 3/Dec/14

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

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

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

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

Rodney says on 2/Dec/14

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

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

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

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

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



Here's another photo

Click Here

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



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

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

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

Click Here

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

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

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

Arnold was 5'11-5'11.5 (around 180cm or a bit bit more) peak not because of that 1972 picture, but because i always knew that he was that height, confirmed by people who met him back in the day, it was nothing shocking... You think that he was taller or much taller, fine, believe what you want...

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

Dmeyer says on 29/Nov/14


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



GUY says on 29/Nov/14


Rodney says on 28/Nov/14

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

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

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



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



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

180 morning

178.5 during the day

178 evening



Young age: 184-183 during the day and 185 in the morning. He did measured his 6ft2 in boots. I was interesting in bodybuilding for half a year and say lots of photos with guys measured at 183 and he always was exactly at their range!



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

Everything you've said here is made up bull****, except maybe being interested in bodybuilding for half a year, which may or may not be.

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

I've met in real life plenty of men who are at 6 feet or maybe a little under or over who claimed to be 6'2". 6'2" is a very common height to lie about or claim.

184.3cm says on 27/Nov/14


@MJKoP



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

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

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

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



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



Uh-Oh says on 26/Nov/14


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

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



Lipster says on 18/Nov/14

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

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

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



Just my experience I wanted to share with you.







Very contradicting stories, one says 5'11" the other says 6'2".

All contestants were measured for this contest in 1967 and Arnold was 20 years old and 6'2"

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

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

Well pretty much everyone says Arnie wasnt ever a full 6-2" 6-1.5" max at best so who did the measure up?

Mr Magoo??

HeightcrazyRed6ft says on 22/Nov/14


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



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

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



Vibram says on 21/Nov/14


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



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



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

Age 50- early 60's = 183cm

Age 68 = 180cm.



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

Rodney says on 21/Nov/14

Joe says on 18/Nov/14

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



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

Arnold and George Clooney. Arnold is clearly at least 5 cm taller

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

Joe says on 19/Nov/14


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

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

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

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

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

Click Here

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

rockfellas says on 13/Nov/14

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



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

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



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

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

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

Rodney says on 18/Nov/14


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

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

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


Ian C says on 18/Nov/14


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



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