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.

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

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

I agree with Baslie's measurement.
Vince has no love for Arnold and could have easily said that measurement was wrong and down graded it
Over the years

Slimeball,

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

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

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

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

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

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

WhatS odd is have One Friend who has met Arnold and says he was from 5'10-5'11 ( in 2009) and coworker who I know for a fact is 6'1 and said Arnold was eye level with him more or less in 1993.
Harold said on 24/May/16
Agree that he's under five foot eleven today. Disagree that he was ever much over that. If you argue that he was once 6.'1.5" because he was once supposedly measured in his lifetime by a fanboy bodybuilder who referred to him as a real 'he-man,' please. If you want to reinforce your false argument with capital letters, please. There is only one person on this planet who claims Little Arnie was ever six foot two, and that's the perpetual salesman, Arnie himself. There's only one person on this planet who claims to have measured him at six foot one and one-half. And that would be Basile from Australia. Basile seems not to have noticed the cowboy boots on his hero's size 9 feet, nor the lifts therein, when he, salivating in glee and supplication, took his measurement. Wait, it was his height you were measuring, wasn't it, Vince?
jervis said on 24/May/16
Google Arnold Robert Patrick images and you will see Arnold is clearly the taller of the two.
Danimal (176-178cm) said on 23/May/16
Jordan, while I agree with you on his current height of 5'10.5", he was NOT 6'0" tall in his prime. He was measured BAREFOOT at 6'1.5" AT NIGHT in 1969 at the age of 21, FACT.
Danimal (176-178cm) said on 23/May/16
Under 5'11" today.

Jordan87:

I´ve met carl weathers face to face at an convention, he is almost as tall as me and i am 6.3.5 (192 cm) He is a big guy, i estimate him 6.1.5 -6.2 and 215-220 pounds. This was 7 years ago.
Jordan87 said on 23/May/16
James,

It would appear he was most certainly Smaller in T-2 than In T-1. The 212 pound Quaote I have heard before. As Far as how much he weighed in Terminator 1984, Id say around 230
James said on 22/May/16
I agree with Saqib!
Arnold has definitely dropped at least 2 inches in height. I never thought he was 6'2" at his max. He appeared almost eye-to-eye with the T-1000 in T2. So, 6'0" back in the 90's is possible. I read an article in Cigar that said Arnold was 212 lbs at 6'2". So, more like 6'1" and 200 I would believe.
Saqib said on 22/May/16
511-6'0 these days.

Peak shouldn't be questionable.
6'1.5 is believable for him.

Sorry Folks, above is the Weathers Pic from Arnie's Twitter.
Jordan87 said on 20/May/16

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

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

This sight, especially, the Arnold section has lost credibillity. The anmount of bull**** allowed here is really pityfull. I guess opinions are like noses .. pity most noses on here are broken.. a strong case could be made for 5'10" to 5'11" today. Going south of 5'10" is really , really absurd and unrealistic. 5'8". -5'10" estimate is really a long way off the moderators estimate of 5'11.5"..
Jordan87 said on 19/May/16
How Hiami,

5'8 to 5'10? I don't care what the "Woman" said Arnold has never looked 5'8 in any pictures or vid's ever. I know people who met him and said he is anywhere from 5'10 to 6'1. Lue Ferrigno on this Site is pictured at 6'2" at an Older age by the way, all you have to do is look at his page. He had Arnold by 3 inches, Arnold was 5'11 at his shortest. 5'8 is trolling and if you want to have any Credibility by Anyone here, Stop with the 5'8-5'9 Garbage please.
Jackson said on 19/May/16
This is a very clear picture of him standing next to 6'5 Lou barefoot. I don't see any more than 4 inches between them making him at least a legit 6'1

Jordan87 said on 17/May/16
Phil,

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

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

Nigel, when Antonio Sabato Jr. props himself up to run for elected office in California or elsewhere and demands that we believe his lies based on his 'personal integrity' or his ability to financially profit off a pretend image, I will cut him down to (actual) size. This will infuriate the fantasists as reality is not their strong point. And, for doing this, I will be called a 'serial downgrader' and a person of dubious sexual pursuits with a personal vendetta or pathological personality or a blithering on-line idiot, who can neither spell nor add, will stalk and harass me for a hankering for what he mistakenly calls 'haiku'. To those who believe I'm a 'serial downgrader', well, on this site, I've attested to the fact that both Uma Thurman and Dennis Haysbert are exactly the height they say they are. Not everyone lies. But some do. Especially, 'action heroes' because there is much more at stake in their physical presentation than other actors when it comes to 'stature.' At this point, Lederhosen Boy has been caught in so many lies (ask his wife (sorry, ex-wife) about that ) that only the blind could not see the obvious. And no one ever said the Fanboys could stomach reality. So, Nigel, I promise, when Sabato turns from the absurdity of acting and male modelling to trying to run the state or the country or the world and brings his 'actor's resume' with him, and, if he lies, I will call him on it.
Phil said on 17/May/16
All anyone needs to do is watch Pumping Iron and watch him standing beside the legit 6'5" Lou Ferrigno. Arnold was never taller than 6'
Jordan said on 16/May/16
Mark,

No Way 5'11 as a Peak. If you look at the pics I posted below, He comes up to right under Joe's Eye level ( WHo is on this site proven at 6'4.5 at elast) making Arnold 5'11 nowadays in his mid 60's. He was 6'0 or better in his younger days.
Nigel said on 16/May/16
Harold, if you like exposing liars, I'd like you to expose Antonio Sabato Jr. :-) Various websites say he's 185cm (just under 6ft1), and I heard him on radio saying he was 6ft 2!! What a joke! Just looking at proportion of his head to his body, it's clear that he's not 6ft1, let alone 6'2, otherwise he'd have the largest head in the world. :-) He looked no taller than Lou Diamond Phillips in The Big Hit (at times, looked shorter), and not much taller than Marky Mark. Go for it.

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

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

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

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

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

Peak height-184/185
Current height- 179/180 (most likely due to age, surgery problems and a physically draining lifestyle.
Wordsworth said on 14/May/16
He looks like 5' 9.5'' now, cannot say about his peak height , could have been 5' 10''.
Chris said on 14/May/16
I think this photo provides some Information about Arnie's current height:

Click Here

Jim Caviezel is listed 1.85m here, Arnie 1.82m, so more or less the same height. On this Picture
there is no angle Advantage for anyone, a shoe Advantage for Arnie (look at his left foot), Caviezel
is leaning, Arnie is Standing straight, and still, this Looks to me like a 10-15cm difference in favor of
Caviezel. I never saw Caviezel, but I stood in front of Arnie last year at the Zurich Film Festival. 1.82m is definetely
not true today, I would give him at best 1.78m (5'10), 1.75m I think is also quite possible. I also have the Impression
that Caviezel is taller than 1.85m, from the movies I would say he is 6'2. I also think that Arnie lost a lot of height, his trunk
Looks rather compressed. As a Young man, I think he was around 1.83m (6'ft) and I also read once this was his listed height before
he became famous. Having seen him, 1.85m is the absolute Maximum I could Imaging for him in his prime, 1,88m (6'2) is in my opinion
impossible.
TJE said on 13/May/16
He looks today's listing with Joe Manganiello. 181-182 cm.
Mark said on 13/May/16
5'11" at peak?! RIDICULOUS!

He stood well next to Peak Jeff Bridges though Jeff Bridges was slightly taller and could off measured 189 cm at peak.

Still puts Arnold in the 6'1" - 6'2" range at peak.
Arch Stanton said on 13/May/16
@Rampage I caught Arnie barefoot I think in a very brief role in The Long Goodbye in the early 70s with Elliot Gould. Gould looked about 1.5 inches taller I think, but in shoes and I think Arnie was barefoot. So yeah 6'1.5 checks out I think.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/16
Strong 6ft1/weak 6ft2 peak. All over you are dreadful downgraders. His height helped make him a success in bodybuilding.
Jordan87 said on 11/May/16

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Just a correction, Arnold had 25 year career in bodybuilding, not 40. I didn't know that weightlifting makes you lose height. Arnold was never 6'2", go watch the opening scenes of Predator. Scene with Weathers, Arnold is wearing cowboy boots, which by the way he has been wearing since his BB days. Watch that scene and you can see that he wasn't 6'2 or even 6'1.5".
Jonty said on 6/May/16
Thanks Chris, At last someone with latest information about Arnold's current height, Arnold is surely hanging around 5' 10'' these days. he is 5' 11.5'' (182cm) only with his dress shoes (with thick soles) like the ones he is wearing in the above photo.

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


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

Vote for Harold 2016.

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

richie said on 5/May/16
@Johan. Estimation is absolutely spot on. Lou a weak 6'4" and Arnold a strong 6'1" was definitely their peak heights, both guys have lost a good inch today but that's pretty normal. Way too much evidence to suggest Arnie was just 6', he had a good inch on Ken Waller who was just 6' and edged Mike Katz who himself was listed as 6'1" back in the 70's...

Burt Reynolds wore shoe lifts all his career,but he never tried to hide it,if he did maybe we would be trying to argue that he was 6ft1 peak,and that he has lost 4inches.As for Arnold I don't think he was lower than 6ft peak.It's hard to be certain of any of these celebrities actual heights unless you measure them personally.So I always think maybe knock an inch or so off their listed heights if your not fully convinced they are the height they say they are.

Lou was a strong 6' 3'' in his prime, I have no idea what is he today but definitely not anywhere 6' 3''. Arnold was definitely 3.5''-4'' shorter than him barefoot on the stage in Mr. Olympia. This puts an upper limit of 5' 11.5'' to 6' 0'' on Arnold's max. height in his prime. That is why I said 5' 11'' in his prime because it may stretch up to 5' 11.75''. Guys accept it he never looked a giant on the screen anyway.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/May/16
This guy was around 187cm evening at peak (or 186.5cm at worst). Cleared 6ft1 with ease. This "let's downgrade Arnold because we're insecure" needs to stop...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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




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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Dillett was 6'1 185 cm. Ferrigno was 6'3 190 cm barefoot, and 6'4 193 cm in shoes.
jervis said on 13/Apr/16
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.

Adjust for perspective and angle.

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...

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!
TruthSeeker said on 4/Apr/16
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.

Sheep to a man, till the day they die.
'He was six foot two! That' s just what he said!'

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!'

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.

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.

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.
184.3cm (Night) said on 24/Mar/16
@Alucard

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)
Jim Hopper said on 23/Mar/16
He was 6-0 flat!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Watch the video with Lucille Ball for F-sake!! Its 100% PROOF!!!!!!!!! Fanboys stop it!
James St. said on 23/Mar/16
lol of course (slaps forehead). I didn't even think about body proportions, thx guys.
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?
josey wales said on 22/Mar/16
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.
jervis said on 22/Mar/16
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.

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

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.
Jack_Billingsley said on 20/Mar/16
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...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
Looks near 6ft2 in True Lies and edged out Tom Arnold. Also had about 2in on Bill Paxton. Can't deny his peak height

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.

I stood next to Arnie in a department store in LA about 2 months ago. I and others were really surprised he was so short, definitely not more than 5'9".

Arnie should get a downgrade on his current height though. Looking more 180-181cm nowadays. A solid 5'11.

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.

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

Let's do the math together: 176-177 plus 5.08 is 181-182. Converted to feet and inches, 181-182 is five eleven and 1/4 to five eleven and, aprox. 1/2. IN SHOES. Do the math, Sunshine, take away the shoes and what have you got? Shall I do the math for you? Five ten? Hello? So we are to believe 'the King' has lost two and one-half inches in three years. Let the farce continue.


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. Whether he's a clown or a priest who cares if he's a politician or a lier, compare to others who aren't. He's half the guy he was. Chill dude not that serious.

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

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.
An anglo saxon foot is 30,48 cm and an inch is 2,54 cm at my house.

Lucio, don't be dishonest in order to get your point across. Rob quoted his friend as saying 'near 2 inches," not 2. inches (it's plural, by the way). 176-177 plus 2 inches is 176-177 plus 5.08. Let's do the math together: 176-177 plus 5.08 is 181-182. Converted to feet and inches, 181-182 is five eleven and 1/4 to five eleven and, aprox. 1/2. IN SHOES. Do the math, Sunshine, take away the shoes and what have you got? Shall I do the math for you? Five ten? Hello? So we are to believe 'the King' has lost two and one-half inches in three years. Let the farce continue.

If Moore was 6ft1.5 then Arnold looks about 1 inch taller.So the question is was Moore just 6ft,was Arnold wearing lifts,or maybe Arnold was 6ft2 after all?

So you rely on unproven fact from the "credible" Washington Post and Sarah Douglas but not documented heights? What was the last movie she was even in? 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.
