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

Many people have met him and in his early career a lot would say he was 6ft 1-2, although 6ft 3 Kevin Sorbo said "Arnold Schwarzenegger's about 5-11". Jon Meade said Arnie told him in a 1980 interview he was "6ft 1.5" and bodybuilder Vince Basille has said he measured Arnie in 1969 at 6ft 1.5. His email to me. Arnold has also recently said that he was "6ft 1 and 3/4" but now has shrunk to 6ft 1, as measured by his daughter and in 2013 mentioned he was down to 6ft 1/2 inch.

another evidence of my starting point: arnold schwarzenegger WAS NOT OVER 6'1":
Click Here

on the left we have the wrestler bruno sammartino with a very young arnold schwarzenegger. Sammartino BILLED FAKE HEIGHT 5'11"! he struggled with 5'9"! look at his short legs! 5'11" is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE for sammartino. arnold is relaxed, no good posture, but you see the ground, the camera angle, no excuses. It is difficult to estimate arnold's height with this posture, even if i do not see a legit 6'1" at all. But this is not the point. About peak height, the point is: anything over 6'1" IS OUT OF REAL. Those listed or billed heights of 6'1.5"-6'2"(187-188cm) are absolutely out of real.

Junior31 says on 21/Apr/14:I don't think Arnold was 6'2 but this being a case of rounding up and a billing. A 5'11 guy would NEVER GET AWAY WITH A 6'2 billing. That's why I think your 5'11 peak is nonsense. Arnold got away with 6'2 listing, and why did he, because he was close enough to it But the common denominator your forgetting in terms of Ferrigno today was that he didn't have the same surgeries as Arnold and therefore was able to maintain his height and his physique. If Lou was in fact at peak a strong 6'3. It makes sense that Arnold was 6'1.-------

Maybe you did not read all the posts carefully. I have never said he was just 5'11" at his peak. I always said-6ft range. Do you know what does it means range? In this case 6ft range. it means a minimum of 5'11.5"(182cm) and a max of 6'0.5"(184cm). That range. This is my opinion and i keep it. You say a full 6'1"(185cm), but from my opinion of 6ft range, to your opinion of full 6'1", ONE THING IS SURE: HE WAS NOT OVER 6'1", SO IN ANY CASE THIS 6'1.5"(187cm) IS CLEARLY OVERESTIMATED. FOR SURE. This is what i am trying to say since 3 months. 6ft or 6'1" peak, who knows exactly?...but for sure 6'1.5" is not correct because it is overestimated. So i resume what i have always said:
lou ferrigno peak 6'3". Proven. Current height a weak 6'2"
arnold schwarzenegger peak 6ft or max a fraction over. Current height a very very weak 5'11". you say peak 6'1", i do not agree, never mind, but for sure anything over 6'1" IS OUT OF REAL. This is the point: ANYTHING OVER 6'1" is out of real. I think those estimates are realistic. Many of us can not accept anymore fake heights listed for years: lou ferrigno 6'5", arnold 6'2". Stop with this, i say it to the magazines, forums, tv, etc, we are tired and angry at the same time. It's over. I hope.

RisingForce, your pics are NOT evidence of a compressed torso or any humps in arnie's spine! Instead in the newer pic arnie is obviously simply wearing really high-rise pants. Look at the distance from crotch to waistband in that pic compared to the bodybuilding one. Pathetic!

Also, why would a broken bone make one lose height? Bones heal! You'd only lose height if the doctor botched things up by maligning the bone or giving a replacement that was too short! The fanboys must try harder than this.


Broken bone? My man are us till high from 4/20. Compression of discs, hip replacements,, knee replacements are What creates height and stature. Posture is derived from you spine and your ability to withstand gravity and have EVERYTHING TO DO WIT HEIGHT. Please don't speak when you don't know.

Keep using fanboy every time you get proved to be absurd. We've stated multiple times we don't like the guy and It has nothing to do with his height

Every time fanboy is used it means I've proven you to be irrelevant and wrong. And judging from the comments that use it, I haven't been wrong yet. Keep it coming.

Again waiting for you napoleons to explain Carl weathers, explain hogans 3 inch loss with the same attributes as Arnold, and roddy pipers 4 inch loss with similar surgeries. Something tells me your ridiculous explanation will include a few fan boys.

M'y father is same ge as arnie and was was 175.5cm now 172.5cm heading to 172cm
Shenk says on 22/Apr/14
When Kevin Sorbo said that Arnold was below six feet, Kevin must have been disoriented. When Shaq said that Arnold was below six feet, Shaq must have been confused. When Howie Long said that Arnold was below six feet, he must have meant someone else. When each of them said he was around five foot eleven, they simply got that wrong. When Arnold's publicists said he was 'around six feet,' they meant that as a ballpark figure, give or take two inches or so, north or south of the mark. Meaning five foot ten, maybe, or, as Arnold always said, six foot two. I think it's safe to say, Arnold is somewhere between five foot ten and six foot two. Wait, let me amend that: I think it's safe to say Arnold is somewhere between five foot nine and six foot two. Have you heard the rumor that Arnold and Lance Armstrong will be running on the Republican ticket for Pres against Hillary?

Arnold was a legit 6'1 guy in his prime. People debating Arnold's prime height are pathetic or trolling. The debate of this page must be about his current height . Arnold really lose height. He could be between 5'11.5 to 6'0 today. He is looking more in the 5'11 range this days. Seahawksfan quit the trolling man . You are trolling in the opposite direction. Arnold at 6'3.5 peak ? Yeah right ? Ferrigno 6'6 peak ? Yeahhhh right lol

For those who claim a 5'11" Arnold at his peak- go watch "Pumping Iron" movie. That's definetly a 6'1" ish guy barefoot!
YabbaDabbaDo says on 22/Apr/14
@RisingForce
100% agree. His height was very close to Letterman's, and I don't see anybody here saying Letterman was 5'11"-6" at peak.

Arnold has always been a bit liar with his "six foot two" claim, we all know that, he is an actor and a politician and we know how they are, but he was at least 6'1" most of the day and now he is almost 2" shorter, that is why he looks 5'11" today.
My father is 62 and has lost 3cm (1.25") since his youth, and without weight-lifting, of course. It is not impossible, especially if you are tall.

RisingForce: Of course Arnolds torso looks longer in the bodybuilding pic because he is stretching and posing and in the other pic he is in mid stride and relaxed.

All you have to do is look at the picture Rob has of Arnold right above. Does that look like a "compressed torso"??? No. Arnold looks perfectly fine and normal in that pic. Add the fact that he has gained a lot of fat in later years around his waist and that could also give the illusion of a "compressed torso". Right now as he is ready to film T5 and is very slim there is no illusion of "compressed torso".

Danimal was not right. Its a silly theory.
RisingForce says on 22/Apr/14
Agreed, Junior31, I have no idea why anyone thinks Arnold's personal mistakes have anything to do with how tall he was. That doesn't make any point pertaining to Arnie's height. The only thing it does is make me strongly question those poster's objectivity when it comes to Arnold.

rockfellas, you're wrong. You can shrink 2 inches at Arnie's age. Again, not everyone shrinks the average, it's laughable that some seem to have the impression that every 65 year old man shrinks exactly 1 inch, no more, no less simply because the average man did. In everything, there will always be people over and under the average. Rob himself has mentioned that his father hadn't lost any height by 62-63 years old, despite the fact that the average 60 year old has lost 0.8". Chuck Norris is even more extreme since the average 70 year loses 1.2", yet a 72 year old Chuck was still looking like a 5'10" guy in lifts at the Expendables 2 premiere meaning he likely hasn't lost much, if anything from his peak height of 5'8.5". On the otherhand, look at Hulk Hogan who is 6 years older than Arnie, yet has lost at least as much height, possibly a bit more. Nobody is talking about a 3 or 4 inch height loss so stop exaggerating to make us seem more unreasonable. I believe Vin Basille's measurement and have Arnie's peak at 6'1.5" midday/evening height, and I believe he's currently around 5'11.5", but no shorter, so right around 2 inches, imo, but definitely not more than that, and no, that's not an unprecedented loss. The fact that Arnie was usually around 2 inches taller than Bruce Willis in the 90's, but probably just half an inch taller than Bruce by 2011-2012 shows this, especially since Bruce had likely lost a bit of height himself at 56-57 at the time.

Nobody is saying Arnie ALWAYS looked at least 6'1.5", everyone can look shorter than they are at times. For example, I watched Raw Deal again recently and thought Arnie looked more 6'1" flat than 6'1.5", but Arnie also looked at least 6'1.5" quite often. As I've mentioned Arnie looked a bit taller than Carl Weathers who Rob said was STILL around 6'1" in 2010 at 62 years old. Then there's Arnie looking at least 2 inches taller than solid 5'11" Jim Belushi in Red Heat. Click Here Click Here Click Here Arnie also looked similar height to 6'1.5"-6'2" David Letterman in the late 80's/early 90's. Arnold was taller than 6'1" Tom Arnold in True Lies. A 50 year old Arnold also had about 3 inches on George Clooney who I think is 5'10"-5'10.5" range, but listed at 5'10.75" here.
RisingForce says on 22/Apr/14
Metric, I know we're unlikely to see eye to eye on Arnold's height, in fact, I'd say it's about as unlikely as a 1984 Arnold literally seeing eye to eye with current Arnold ;) but Danimal was 100% right about Arnold's upper body.

Just compare a young Arnold who looked like a well-proportioned legitimately tall man. Click Here while current Arnold looks like a compressed, aging average height man with a very short torso for his height. Click Here

Tell me that's not a striking difference. Arnold's height loss clearly isn't only the normal inch for a 66 year old man, it's obvious he's shrunk more than the average, which is why his height loss is brought up so often to the point that even Arnold is conceding shrinking more than an inch.

Arnie is getting the Clint Eastwood effect as far as height loss. It's not as dramatic yet since Clint is 17 years older, but he's headed down the same path. Arnold has had a lot of injuries such as his broken leg in the 70's during his bodybuilding career, numerous injuries filming movies as well as a motorcycle accident in 2001 that resulted in 6 broken ribs, and a skiing accident in 2006 that resulted in a broken femur then there's the years of heavy weight-lifting, which also make it logical that Arnold would shrink more than the average man. Arnie still looked a good 6'0.5" or so as of 2006, when he was 59 and the average 60 year loses 0.8" so Arnie from his peak height of 6'1.5" hadn't lost that much more than the average man by that point, but it's not surprising that it accelerated with the broken femur and age catching up to Arnie more.

I have nothing against you personally, Metric, so I hope you don't confuse with my strong disagreement with anything personal, but I find it ridiculous to suggest that Arnold has only lost what the average man his age does.

a man without a serious hump can't shrink 2-3-4 inches!! but with those accursed fanboys any logical argument is pointless. HERE ON THIS WEBSITE THERE IS JUST AN INCH DIFFERENT BETWEEN PEAK AND CURRENT HEIGHT OF LOU FERRIGNO, because this is the reality. he shrunk just an inch, maybe he will shrink 2 inches at 80-90! not at 60-65! Even i do not agree(i see lou at 6ft3in peak and 6ft2in current, rob added an inch for peak and current), the point is the same: the difference between peak and current height for lou ferrigno is always of an inch. This is the reality for all people except for arnold who is protected by fanboys but surprisingly and inexplicably by the owner. --
Rev Jim Jones says on 15/Apr/14
The answer is that Ferrigno and Schwarzenegger didn't 'shrink so much.' They didn't shrink so much because they were never, ever the heights the Hollywood industry claimed for them. Ferrigno, maybe a legit six three at his peak. Never, ever six foot five. Schwarzenegger, maybe a legit five eleven at his peak. Unless he was standing on a stepladder, never, ever six foot two.
Both have shrunk an inch or so in their golden years from their peak. Their peak being shorter than advertised. Ferrigno, slightly shorter than six foot two. Schwarznegger slightly shorter than five foot ten.

THE TRUTH INSIDE. perfect post Rev Jim Jones. THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH. TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU MY FRIEND REV.


Also gotta tell you, saying you know more then Rob, a guy who dedicated his time to height and an entire website on it goes to show you how absurd you really are. I'm not saying he's always 100pct, I'm sure he will tell you that he isn't, but you a guy who needs to change names Alan Brisco because youve been proven wrong and unjust more times then Bernie madoff , certainly couldn't shine robs shoes.

Any way back to the fact that your shot

I'm still waiting for you to explain why a peak Armold was taller then a 6'1' Carl Weathers, and significantly taller then everyone 6ft, including Ronald Reagan and a peak 6ft Bruce Willis

I'm also still waiting for you to justify your theory of losing at max 1 inch, when Hulk Hogan who is completely comparable to Arnold (60+ year old who has made a career out of training and action for 40+years and has had similar surgeries) has lost 3 inches from his peak

I'm still waiting for you to justify Roddy piper who has lost 4 inches from his peak due to surgeries and not to mention is younger than Arnold.

Until you answer these questions your entire point of Arnold's height and height loss isn't valid. So in your next post. Replace your term "fanboy" that you childishly love so much with " realist" or "Practical"' wich is English for human being with brain stem.

Again your arguments are empty, your antagonistic use of "fanboy" is also funny, basically because you have a lot in common with manipulative Arnold the politician , your both full of ****.
LeDefener says on 21/Apr/14
Omg I can't believe some of you people are trying to denigrate Arnold's legacy as a tall man.

I'll have you know Arnold has had over 100 surgeries, and it's a known fact that surgery always makes one lose height, even heart surgery, and especially knee and hip replacements since the doctors always use a replacement that is several inches shorter than the original bone.

Additionally every time he did a stunt for his action films it must have compressed his spinal capsules, just like Undertaker has shrunk from 6'10 to 6'9 from getting dropped on his head a few times. If you just look at Arnold nowadays you can see he has a severely bent spine, practically at a 90 degree angle.

When taking all this into account I must say I find it inconceivable that Arnold ever stood anything less than 6'4!
Edith Parsnip says on 21/Apr/14
So what if Arnold isn't within shouting distance of six foot two. Let Arnold be Arnold. It's not as if he inspired millions of American boys to take steroids and lie about it. It's not as if he risked their long-term health. They did. That's not on him. Let Arnold be Arnold. He's six foot two.

For once I agree with u. I don't think Arnold was 6'2 but this being a case of rounding up and a billing. A 5'11 guy would NEVER GET AWAY WITH A 6'2 billing. That's why I think your 5'11 peak is nonsense. 5'11 is slightly above average. Arnold wasn't an average height man. Again photos with 6' footers shows he has them. He has never ever at his peak looked shorter then a listed 6'1 colleague ala Carl weathers. Arnold got away with 6'2 listing, and why did he, because he was close enough to it But the common denominator your forgetting in terms of Ferrigno today was that he didn't have the same surgeries as Arnold and therefore was able to maintain his height and his physique. If Lou was in fact at peak a strong 6'3. It makes sense that Arnold was 6'1. Lou has lost an inch due to age and weightlifting career spanning over 30 years, we are not talking recreation we are talking about 30 year + career, Arnold has lost 2+ from a weightlifting career spanning 40 years, age, with the biggest factor being multiple surgeries that effect height (back,neck,legs). Look at hogan and toddy piper. Same stories, same loss in height. It all makes sense. If you have a vendetta or hatred toward Arnold, then it doesn't.
KROC says on 21/Apr/14
@Junior31
Don't even waste your time with these clowns. Their trolling for kicks. Arnold was definitely 6'1 in his prime. There is just too much photographic evidence/interviews that point to that conclusion. It's only natural that guys like Lou and Arnold shrink significantly. Their bodies (especially their spines) have been through so much wear and tear. Lifting excessively heavy weights over the course of a lifetime, can and will do that too a man. Two guys I know, one a former powerlifter the other an amateur strongman have lost significant height through heavy weightlifting. The powerlifter quit lifting and started a bodyweight exercise regimen and within a year has actually has been able to regain most of his lost height. The other guy is just out of luck. Arnold was 6'1, Lou was 6'4. Case Closed. Putting up crackhead photos isn't going to prove otherwise, rockfella, alucard, metric whoever. I saw the movie Sabotage a couple weeks ago and Arnold looks about 6ft in that. He's probably 5'11.5 now.
t.1000 says on 21/Apr/14
@ metric
he looks almost 6'2 standing next to christopher reeve.

Mario says on 21/Apr/14
Conclusion based on everyone's discussion:

Arnold: Current (182/3) - Peak (186/7).
Lou: Current (188) - peak (191).

-> Arnold lost more height.
-> Arnold was close to 188cm during prime, but not quite the full 6ft2.

One-half inch is 'rounding up' and harmless exaggeration. Four inches is fraud. The sheeple must be heard.

The question is not whether he is a good guy or not. He's a lying manipulative politician who would do anything to be on top. The question isn't how tall he is now. The question is how tall was he at his peak. Photo comparisons from his prime point to nothing below 6'1. Today he is clearly 5'11. If you don't think an action star who abused his body for 30 plus years and had multiple neck,leg,and spine surgeries and is now close to 70 only lost a half inch to an inch your out of your bird.

He was tall enough to not wear shoes in the weight room, go bare foot, and still be the confident alpha male, his height issues only effect him now, as he is a shell of the 30 year old on top of the world Adonis he once. He had no problem holding his own with other 6'1 men and was taller then all 6fters.
Honest says on 21/Apr/14
So true, Mildred (how's Bakersfield?). Fidelity, Integrity, Loyalty, Honesty: these are the hallmarks and legacy of Arnold. This is why we look up to him. That and his six foot two stature. I mean, we, as smaller people, literally LOOK UP to him. Jimmy Fallon must be six foot four, at least.
Concerned says on 21/Apr/14
Wow. Apparently people get really pissed when someone rounds up by a half an inch. I personally don't mind him claiming 6'2, because rounding to the nearest half inch is common anyway, and he technically would be that tall... just not in the evening.

The current listing seems accurate. Aside from that email, I think the best evidence for him being a bit over 6'1 is Predator, where he was clearly a bit taller than Carl Weathers.
Terminator says on 20/Apr/14
I believe his coat is a bit too long for his Blue suit, in the above picture. I think the long jacket makes Arnold appear shorter. He is a 6 foot guy for sure.
Mildred says on 20/Apr/14
I don't understand how anyone here can question Arnold's height, when he spent thirty years telling you he was six foot two. Just listen to the man. He has always been honest. And, when using a member of his own family to back up his height claim, well, he would have to be a pretty low person to use someone that way to promote a lie. Arnold isn't like that. Integrity has always been his middle name.
Junior31 says on 20/Apr/14
I just don't understand how
anyone can say that. He's had 7 plus surgeries. Roddy piper had similar surgeries and has lost 4 inches off his peak please check it out. In other instances Arnold standing next to a legit 6'1 carl weathers had a him in the height department. Time and time again there is photo evidence of him being above 6ft in his prime. Today is another story
KING says on 19/Apr/14
if arnold had genuinely lost 2.5 inches of height it would mean he probably had some kind of severe condition. thats more than double a man his age should lose. and really his spine looks fine. the fanbopys will make any excuse for the great arnold who walked on water.
Lucio says on 19/Apr/14
Metric says on 19/Apr/14
He looks 5-10 next to Fallon for sure. Just waiting for Lucio to try and explain it away with distorted height lines and etc. BS.
----------------------

Oh, but it is very simple. Most likely because Fallon, having the woman's wig, he has also a high-heeled women's shoes and that's why it appears taller than Arnold.
Indeed, since their shoes are never framed by the camera, you can safely assume that they are shoes for women.
In fact, when they are in the studio and Jimmy Fellon dressed normally, they are always seated, so of course, it's not a reliable comparison.
I'm sorry for you Metric, you got hurt again ..!
Dmeyer says on 19/Apr/14
Dosnt look, more than,5ft 10.75-11 with fallon looking at the whole video
Metric says on 19/Apr/14
Junior: Like I said all the time even 5 years ago (before I was banned): Around 5-11.5 to 6-0. Nowadays he is down to 5-11, could be a tad under (with the new Fallon evidence). He has shrunk 1 inch, normal height loss for a man of nearly 67 years. No mystical 4 inch height loss from 6-2 to his present height. No martians involved here.

Yes its true Arnold is an abductee and he has been to Mars (as we all know). Where they stole his spine. You are 100% right, RisingForce!

On the serious note there is NO WAY that Arnold is 1.5 inches taller than Fallon in that clip! They are AT BEST around the same height but many many times it seems Arnold is indeed shorter by 0.5 to 1 inch making him look 5-10 to 5-10.5 in this video. Get over it.
Metric says on 19/Apr/14
Seahawksfan: You forgot also that the floor is tilted 90 degrees in Jimmy Fallons favor and also that Fallon is wearing STILTS that are 12 feet tall!!!

What this video proves once and for all is that Arnold is WITHOUT SHADOW OF A DOUBT 7-2 tall!!!

Thats why he also played Jaws in the two James Bond movies.

By 6'1" listed Johnny Knoxville (could be 186-187 CM/6'1.25"-6'1.5") and 5'9" listed Jamie Alexander (she has a major footwear advantage over both of them as well as you can see):

Click Here (he might be shorter in this one).

The footwear is visible in all three, so any explanation for these ones on why he appears taller? Or is Johnny Knoxville like 5'10"-5'11" in reality?

Jimmy Fallon is 5-11.5" max. Arnie is approx 1" shorter. Do the maths. Arnie isnt over 5-11" in todays money. Fact so just deal with it fanboys and stop with the 6-0" b/s. Click Here

@Reality Bites Jimmy Fallon has much better posture in that photo than Arnold does. Here's a video of the two:

Click Here

Arnold could be 1-1.5" inches taller than Jimmy Fallon if you look closely. Pause at 53 seconds and Arnold edges him out.
Metric says on 19/Apr/14
He looks 5-10 next to Fallon for sure. Just waiting for Lucio to try and explain it away with distorted height lines and etc. BS.

My 66 year old dad and Uncle havnt lost any height. I guess it depends on genetics.

Here Arnold is an inch or two shorter than the five foot eleven (optimistically) Jimmy Fallon.
You do the math.
Sam says on 18/Apr/14
He looks more like 5'10.5 these days, especially on RAW next to Hogan. Not quite the 6 footer that he once was but I guess that's what excess weight lifting and steroid use does to an aging body. Hogan is younger and probably lost slightly more but has managed to maintain it well last few years. Still looks the same as he did 10 years ago.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 18/Apr/14
@Paul Patrick he's taller than 5'9.5" listed Taylor Swift as well here:

Click Here

Taylor Swift isn't the type of women that would wear lifts as she's insecure about her height as is (he looks 184 CM/6'0.5" there). But then he has five inches on 5'8.5" Taylor Lautner:

Click Here (consider the fact that Lautner has a hat on to make himself appear taller and that Schwarzenegger is slouching a bit as you can see with his right leg). I would like to see how both him and Arnold stand by other 6'2" listed guys.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 17/Apr/14
Patrick has been described as 6'3" before, but I don't think he is. I've walked by him and we were about even a few months ago. It's common for stars who are 16-25 to have their heights overestimated/underestimates which may be why he has been described as 6'3", but I'd give him 187 CM/6'1.5" (he's likely fully grown as well). He has about a hair on Arnold Schwarzenegger today.

fanboy31,
you have so much passion in your replies. It is incredible your passion for arnold.

1) al baba is a serious guy, legit 6'6", who posted many pics of him with those celebs like lou, john cena, etc. rob knows very well he is a legit 6'6". So respect for ali baba, fanboy.
2) What proves the video with manganiello and hogan? i see the max max 6'4.5" manganiello towering over arnold of about 6 full inches, and the very weak 6'3" hogan clearly 4 full inches taller than arnold. The video proves that arnold struggles with 5'11" nowdays, clearly under 6ft, for sure. So what? peak 6ft, current height 5'10.5" or a very very weak 5'11". Time for lies is over. it is too easy to say for ex: i used to be 6'3" but after years of heavy lifting i am 6ft. no fanboys, it doesn't work like that. A man can shrink 1 inch or an inch and half from 20 to 70. You can shrink 2 inches if are lucky to reach 80-90. all of them are in their 60ies. they have not a SERIOUS HUMP!!! SO without a serious hump you can't shrink 3-4 inches! do not joke. Arnold shrunk an inch or an inch and half max. 6ft peak, 5'10.5"-5'11" current height. Ferrigno 6'3" peak, weak 6'2" current height. Everything is so clear. it is too easy to say: i used to be 6'3" but after years of heavy lifting i am 6ft. no fanboys, it doesn't work like that. stop joking. i suggest you to read the "Rev Jim Jones" post on 15/Apr/14.

Holy crap!! The troll notorious troll Alan Brisco is actually rockafella !!! Haaa that explains it!! Wow


And rising forces clip below seals the deal but I guess Carl weathers was 5'10 peak rockafella?? And a guy like roddy piper who was a legit 6 footer now being 5'9'from the same injuries arnold sufferered (and don't forget Arnold's older) certainly means he can't shrink more then an inch right?? As I've been saying. Your sick in the head. Again you dons elevator shoes should be arriving any day now or maybe borrow them from your step brother Ali baba. No offense Ali baba but your boy rockafella needs help, a tape measurer, oh and a life.

At the rate he's losing height he'll be looking 5'10 by the time he's 70.
RisingForce says on 17/Apr/14
The Jimmy Fallon clip pretty much sealed it for me that Arnie has dropped below 6 feet today. Probably about 5'11.5" now, no more, no less, but I still completely believe the 6'1.5" peak measurement. He was taller than legit 6'1" Carl Weathers in Predator. An average 66 year old would have lost about an inch or a few mm more, but don't forget about Arnie's injuries in the late 90's, and not surprisingly, that seemed to be when he started to lose significant height. Still a legit 6'1" up until his early 50's. In the 80's and even 90's, Arnie looked like a legitimately tall guy, but now looks surprisingly shrunken and pretty average with a really compressed looking torso. That's not just an inch height loss.
Paul says on 17/Apr/14
how tall is Patrick Schwarzenegger? in the photos looks taller than his dad, but don't seems a 6ft guy

Ha don't you love it? Guys like Rockefella use photos just like that one and swear by them when in reality the angle of it is ridiculous. If you wanna prove a height with a photo be my guest but nothing's better then live. Pictures like this that angles and people standing closer the camera completely hold no water and when you explain this you get called a fanboy or a Lebron supporter. No morons we are neither we are people who have a brain and know how to judge height in photos. Don't care if it's a picture of Stalin and Mussolini the fact that you support or dislike the people in the pic does not and should not merit whether you downgrade or accept there height. It's getting ridiculous

Six foot three? ROTFL! Yes, he is six foot three. And his college degree wasn't earned from 'life experience' but from actual study. And he didn't employ a manager to run his restaurant, he did it himself. And he didn't marry a celebrity to further his own career and then impregnate his maid to humiliate her, because he's just not that kind of guy. Yes, he's six foot three. Or more.

So true it's amazing how people perceive this guy
Lmao. Other then "making it" in America the dude is a snake. Even his pumping iron days before big time fame he was a deceitful , kaniving piece of work that would do anything necessary to get a leg up on the competition . To think that a man like that is celebrated in our society goes to show you how our morals and integrity have gone out the window

On this case of height 6'3 is as ridiculous as a 5'11 peak lol agree with the listing but think you will see rob listing him sub 6'0 very very soon. He's a 5'11 these days but woke up a strong 6'1 in 1975

Lol. Claiming 6'3 for peak height Arnold is equally ridiculous as under 6'1 peak. Arnold was arround 185cm - 186cm in his prime, so yes, 6'1.5 right out of the bed is pretty much possible.

the legit 6'6"(198cm) al baba, with lou ferrigno.
Lou struggles with 6'2", al towers over him. clearly 4 full inches taller than lou. Lou was 59 at the time. still in good shape. the pic shows how a legit 6'6" looks like. It is proven from this pic that lou ferrigno was max 6'3"(190cm) at his peak. everything else is a logical consequence: arnold schwarzenegger peak was max 6ft, because he was clearly 3 inches shorter than lou ferrigno. Also it is easy to understand that hulk hogan couldn't be as tall as al baba. he was just a little bit taller than ferrigno, so hogan peak was in the 6'4" range:Click Here

This is the reality fanboys, fantasy world is over.


First of all a 60 yr old body builder would lose roughly an inch to an inch and a quarter. Secondly who the **** is Ali baba How do we know how tall he really is. Before you trolls started visiting the site there was a man named Glenn who swore on a documented height only when rob met him he was 2 inches off from his claim. Until Ali baba gets measured by someone on the site he's not a barometer. Again Lou Ferrigno and Arnold shwazzernagger have always been roughly 3 inches apart

A 1975 Arnold was 6'1. A 1975 Ferrigno was 6'4.

A modern day Arnold 5'11 and change. A modern day Ferrigno 6'2 in and change

U can post all the photos with celebrities and non celebrities. 2 weeks ago Arnold was standing next to 3 people with documented heights and looked 5'11 and change. You keep eluding this and completely neglect the clear evidence. The LIVE evidence

Again homie you must be a pirate because you don't have a leg to stand on

You just said it yourself hogan being 6'4. Watch the video from that raw. The LIVE video of hogan looking only 3-4 inches taller then Arnold. A 6'4.75 to 6.5 joe mangiello looking 4 inches to 5 taller then Arnold and a 6ft billed Miz looking the same height roughly. With at points arnold actually looking taller. Every absurd photo you've posted I've justified. Can't same the same for you

Click Here

But instead we will neglect this live footage and look at pictures with atrocious camera angles, no footwear shots, and with other guys who aren't celebrities and could be full of **** with OTHER celebrities that might be a height. Your pathetic.

I think I figured it out. I think one night you gave Arnold your number and he never called you back and your a women scorned! Or maybe he didn't sign your terminator poster at a meet and greet. Either way To be so passionate about downgrading everyone shows a trend in absurdity. Could be you ordered your dons sneaker lifts and then never came in!
Mario says on 15/Apr/14
I agree with Rockellas below me. Arnie was closer to 185/6cm at peak (now 182) and Lou was the full 191 at peak (now 188). They both lost around 3cm due to heavy lifting though Arnie looks shorter at times because of his hunched posture. Arnie is just scraping 6ft today, which goes with Rob's theory. Arnie only look 5-6cm shorter than Lou at both theirs peak anyway. Lou retained better posture.

Rev Jim Jones says on 15/Apr/14
The answer is that Ferrigno and Schwarzenegger didn't 'shrink so much.' They didn't shrink so much because they were never, ever the heights the Hollywood industry claimed for them. Ferrigno, maybe a legit six three at his peak. Never, ever six foot five. Schwarzenegger, maybe a legit five eleven at his peak. Unless he was standing on a stepladder, never, ever six foot two.
Both have shrunk an inch or so in their golden years from their peak. Their peak being shorter than advertised. Ferrigno, slightly shorter than six foot two. Schwarznegger slightly shorter than five foot ten.
Stop drinking the Kool-Aid. The Fantasy Factory is making money off your gullibility.

rob those are excuses. in fact, you have lou ferrigno peak at 6'4" and current height 6'3", so just an inch difference. It is realistic. But with arnold...

RisingForce says on 13/Apr/14
Arnold can still look around 6 foot at times, but I'd agree that he's likely under now, around 5'11.5", possibly 5'11.75" or 182 cm. I agree that he was still at least 6'1" by the late 90's and a bit over 6 feet, maybe 6'0.5" around T2 and maybe his first term as governor. The height loss has definitely been more noticeable the last few years. Just look at Arnie next to Bruce Willis. Arnold always looked comfortably taller until around the Expendables 2 when he seems to barely be taller at times at events.

Arnie still looked around 6'0.25/6'0.5 around the Terminator 3 film back in 2003 when he was 56, he seemed to creep down to a flat 6'0 around the end of the decade, and then over the last 3/4 years seems to have lost noticeable height and is now 5'11.5 at the very best.

James B says on 12/Apr/14
So rob where do all these 'Arnold was never more than 5'11' claims come from? Is it because Arnie has not stood at 6'1.5 for so long that people forget he was a legit tall man once upon a time?
[Editor Rob: in the 90's he was still clearing 6ft, but maybe memories are shorter and only recent years are in our minds, and those recent years he is struggling with 6ft, so maybe the mind easily forgets he 80's!]
truth says on 12/Apr/14
I am 6'1". I have met Arnold and seen him numerous times when living in Santa Monica. He is no taller than 5'-8" if even that. I was stunned when first seeing him because I had also known about the 6'-2" published height. I had to keep looking at him to make sure it was indeed him, in spite of his very recognizable face.

Lou Ferrigno, who also resided in Santa Monica on the other hand is quite a bit taller than I am. I was equally surprised when bumping into him in a book store.
johnny says on 12/Apr/14
I'm a nurse in Scotland who looked after Arnold's PA's grandma. She net him and said I Was taller than him in 1993. I'm 5'11". Never was 6'2". About as real as his haircolour.
miko says on 12/Apr/14
Arnold never had a huge upper body, but long legs so I'm really surprised that he's lost so much height even given his age and bodybuilding.

Today he just looks like somebody has put him inbetween a vice and compressed him.
kyuss says on 12/Apr/14
@Bob. Those shoes give a guy approx 2.75" more height. Very common in show-business. Click Here Arnie knows this trick.
Mario says on 11/Apr/14
After looking at @Bob's article link it is clear he has some form of scolosis or extreme compression of the spine. This attributes to his height loss of 4-5cm. Just goes to show, spend time improving your thoracic extension if you want to minimise height loss.

Dear Arnold:
I don't understand why people are questioning your height, when you have flat-out repeatedly told them the answer to that question. It's not as if you get paid to pretend for a living. After all, you are an actor. So, your word is your bond. After all, you are a politician. And a loving husband. And devoted father. And honored author, who does not employ ghostwriters to write your own books. That would be pretend and you do not get paid to pretend. I think you are all of six foot two. Because that is what your Wikipedia page says you are. And what you say you are. And I think we should alter the United States Constitution to allow you to run for President. Because what this country needs is a man who does not pretend to be something he is not. We need a real truth-teller. Like Arnold.

Oh and sigourmey weaver is documented to be 5'11 to 6ft. So yea with shoes a chick would wear she would be taller then a 60+ Arnold. Great pic, you just reinforced my stance.

Can't wait til you downgrade weaver two inches plus like you do everyone else in a laughable attempt to substantiate your claim......next

Type Arnold Schwarzenegger with Sigurney Weaver in Google images. Shes two inches taller than Arnold,I could go on with pics and examples, but I really think theres no need. two of their children (Patrick and Christina) tower over him. this is objective truth for everyone unless for Junior31, Im starting to think youre Arnold in fact,if this is the case, I love your movies when I was a child.


Funny. Right. She would be taller in the past five years since he's about 5'11 NOW but I'm not arguing about now I'm speaking about peak. Can you see her feet, your photo comparisons are absurd but I'm used to you making an ass of yourself with terrible photos. I guess the owner of the site has no bearing on your opinion, a guy who dedicates his life to height accuracy must be wrong I guess . Anyway since we r playing that game type Bruce Willis Arnold Schwarzenegger into images you will see photos of them together over 3 decades and photos of where he has 2 inches minimum over the 5'11 Willis when they first starting getting together and currently there the same height if not Arnold a hair taller. And the thing that makes this relevant is that in most of there photos you can see there feet. Looking forward to more ridiculous comparisons to justify your ignorant claims

Oh and again for the 300th time the objective of analysis is about his PEAK height. Not his height in 2000 forward wich has been clearly assessed to be 6ft and in the past 5 years 5'11. Not one of you has come up with evidence that a 70's and 80's or for that matter 90's Arnold was not every bit of 6'1

Arnold Schwarzenegger was at least the same height as David Letterman. Here he is in 1991 during an interview for Total Recall. Arnold is not wearing 3 inch snake skin boots here, probably the same style footwear Letterman is wearing, which gives about an inch for both men. Arnold looks, about 6'1" here, in fact if you pause at exactly 0:30 you can see that the two men are virtually identical in height. Nowadays the height gap might be noticeable, but it is pretty clear he was 6'1" for most of his life. At 0:36 you can see his footwear, they do not look like risers.

@RockFellas Good points. I think Lou is (peak, 190/191cm) (today, 187/188). Arnie is (Peak 186/7cm) (today, 182/3).

bla bla bla bla. i posted many pics about arnold, ferrigno, stallone, i have proven they are all overestimated.
1)epic pic: Click Here
this pic was taken about 3-4 years ago. Lou ferrigno was about 59-60. He still was in good condition, no hump, no serious back problem. The guy on the left, named al baba, is a legit 6'6"(198cm). Al towers over lou, he is clearly 4-5 full inches taller than lou. So lou struggles with 6'2" nowdays. he shrunk? probably yes, but max an inch.
2)a young lou playing "the hulk" with claimed 6'2" stuntman manny perry: Click Here
he is as tall as manny perry, or just an inch taller.

3)epic video: Click Here
the video shows lou in his 30ies, with legit 6'5" michael cooper, the black guy. Stop the video at 01:17, you can see Ferrigno is clearly 2 FULL INCHES SHORTER than cooper. Also ferrigno has "afro hair", cooper has very short hair. They wear same shoes, no excuses.

So evidences say lou ferrigno peak was max 6'3"(190cm). This is the starting point. So go on, lou was clearly 3/4 inches taller than arnold:Click Here

conclusion: arnold schwarzenegger peak was 5'11.5"-6ft (182-183cm).
everything is proven. Pics and videos. the rest is bla bla bla bla.
what a rush, baby, what a rush........

Please type "arnold superman premiere" in google images. You would find a picture where Cristopher Reeve towers over Arnold by 4 inches at least. I would say peak height 191-192 cm for Reeve and 181 cm for Arnold, 5ft 11" peak height. (181 cm.)


Hey while we are playing that game lets try "Arnold and Ronald Reagan" in google images. You'll see Arnold with a MINIMUM 6'0 ( site has as 6'0.5) Reagan, talk about towering. Looks every bit of strong 6'1' there. Why you ask? Because he is young there. Before the rigors of life, body building, aging, etc etc. Arnold was a tall man. Now he looks like ****.

again? stop replaying to me! we comment what we see, pics and videos have proven he wasn't 6'1.5", stop! metric, fran77, kyuss, alucard, me, and many others, we have proven he was max 6ft. You say a full 6'1", we say max 6ft. For sure this 6'1.5" is overestimated. Vince basile lied. Stop. Is it clear or not? it is you, and other fanboys who have to prove he was just an inch and half shorter than 6'3". We have proven with pics he was at least 3 inches shorter than a legit 6'3". This is my advice to all fanboys: take a pen, sign on your wall a little line at 6'3" level. Then do 3-4 steps back and watch the point. You will see how a legit 6'3" really is, and finally you will realize that your hero arnold was at least, at least 3 inches shorter.


Again what you havent answered why you downgrade every friggen person on the site 2 inches!!! You haven't backed or justified ANY of your claims. And when you get challenged instead of coming up with something credible you call that person a fanboy. You call me a fanboy when I clearly tell u I didn't like the guy. You haven't made one credible contribution to this site other then downgrading people with angles Ray Charles can see are atrocious. You call me a fan boy when I call you a liar with a vendetta against clearly anyone above average stature. Again back your claims with credible evidence to all your 4 celebrities you've downgraded since you wandered onto this site and decided to make a mockery of it

The guy who I know didn't take a photo with Arnold, he didn't have enough time. Yes, it's a pity. Anyway, if he had one you would say "that's a bad angle", "we can't see their shoes", "the other guy is leaning a bit" and so on...

Today: 182-182.5 out ot bed, 181-182 during the day, 180.5-181 in the evening. 3.5-4 cm more in his youth.
I think "Arnold Schwarzenegger's height is 5ft 11.5in (182 cm)" would be pretty accurate and realistic.
kyuss says on 7/Apr/14
Incredible how many people on here who have met Arnie but never took a photo hey Rob....He was never 6-2"..Sorry fan boys. 6-0.5" peak approx sounds real after all the pictures,now 5-11".

If Cena is 184cm/60.5" wich I believe, then Arnie isnt over 180-180,5cm/ 511"flat.

Rob future listing for Arnie at 511.5" will be just another generous listing like peak Hogan at 66".

The Truth is still 511" flat...

I guess that Gilipollas is from Spain (By the way, I'm laughing because Gilipollas in spanish means Asshole in english, xD).
Yesterday, I talked to a guy who met Arnold in Arnold's Classic (as Gilipollas did), he thinks he was near 5cm (2") taller than Arnold, both with similar shoes. I know this guy, he doesn't lie and I can assure you that his height in the morning is 186cm (6'1.25"), so Arnold's barefoot height at that moment has to be in the range of 181 and 182cm.
I agree that today in the evening he can't be more than 181cm (5'11.25"), but stop downgrading him, he was 6'1' most of the day in his peak and has lost 1.5" since then. I can't understand why that sounds impossible for some people here. Ok, I assume he is a bit liar, like almost everyone in Hollywood, and has always added 0.5"-0.75" to his height, but please, 5'11.5"-6' for his prime is laughable.


Couldn't agree more. The topic on his site really isn't how tall he WAS it's how tall he IS. The dude lost a ton of height but again up until the late 90's henwas generally the tallest guy in a room full of guys a guy 5'11 wouldn't be.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 7/Apr/14
How tall is his son Patrick Schwarzenegger? He's listed as 5'11", but that could be off since he has kept that listing since 17-18 and is nearly 21 now (actors sometimes grow from 18-20) and appears slightly taller than Arnold:

Click Here

However, it's not by much (like 6'.5-6'.75" if Arnold is 6'0 now), but then looks in between 6'1 and 6'2" by Taylor Lautner whose listed as 174 CM:

Click Here

These were taken between 19-20, so they'll be accurate. These photos would either work for Arnold being above 6 feet or would work against him being above 5'11" if Patrick is in the 5'11" range.

fanboy31, I invite you to stop replaying me. I am not talking to you. You say you are not a fanboy, but you are using all of your energy "to defend" arnold. I am not a downgrader (alucard neither). When a man is really tall i dont have any doubt "to confirm" it: lennox lewis, klitschko brothers, etc..but those bodybuilders, wrestlers, hollywood moviestars, etc, are often overestimated. Everybody knows it. "the rock" and batista for ex., listed for years at an incredible 6'5"! we know they struggle with 6'2"!!! ronnie coleman listed for years at 5'11"! he is in the 5'9" range! I may continue with other 50 names...So the same is for your friend arnold and lou ferrigno. There is NO WAY, that arnold was just an inch and half shorter than 6'3". I know how a legit 6'3" looks like. Actor bill duke was in the 6'3"range. Or a very WEAK 6'4". He was clearly 4 full inches taller than arnold:Click Here
Click Here

lou ferrigno peak max 6'2.75"(190cm)
arnold peak max 5'11.5"-6ft (182-183cm)

those are realistic estimations. the rest is for fanboys.


Again with the fanboy references lol good idea lets act hard and call ppl fanboys anonymously over the internet to distinguish your point...


Truth remains your consistent with your two inch downgrades.

Why do you refer to only grading height for tall ppl, ithis site isn't for tall people only it's for height. Klitsckos, Lennox Lewis , who gives a **** about there height. We are talking height in general. Put the bs aside and realize you and Alucard are downgrading everyone two inches. Between the two of you is is your analysis so far

Billed height 6'2: Evidence proves Arnold to be 6'1 and change at peak, you say 5'11.5

Billed height 6'5: Evidence proves Ferrigno to be 6'4 peak and you say 6'2.75

Billed height 7ft: Evidence proves Nash to be every bit of 6'9 peak if not more and he's 6'6/6'7 according to Alucard

Billed height 6'7-6'9: Evidence proves hogan to be strong 6'5 to 6'6 peak and 6'3 current and Alucard says he's lucky to be 6'1 upon waking

Don't you see a trend here?

I could careless about billed heights and your personal preferences I'm going off your blog and angles photo nonsense I'm using accurate evidence much like rob is or anyone for that matter with a brainstem/ and or without a Napoleon complex. Again there clearly not there billed heights but that doesn't mean there 3 inches plus shorter.

By the way you seem to only be using only boxers as a reference Rockefella. I fought professionally from 2006-2011 and make my living in the business. What the **** do you know about the sport let alone the heights of fighters.

To digress I'm not arguing I'm just appalled on how you boys gauge height. I'm not an internet tough guy nor do I believe it in.

Denny, you laugh too much at your own WRONG hypothesis. I am not a FAN of Arnold and I'm not into BB either. So you are wrong. I had the chance to meet Arnold and what about you? I don't care if Arnold was 6'7 or 5'8. All I'm saying is what I said that he was taller than me with regular shoes and that Someone that "works" barefoot as Arnold did in BB shouldnt have height issues especially if you have to stand beside other competitors.

Yes, Arnie is six foot two. Because he says he is. And his open-heart surgery in his 40's was not caused by a quarter century of anabolic steroid use. Because he says so. And he did not pester anything in a skirt. Because he said so. And he didn't keep his maid, mother of his out-of-wedlock child, on the payroll to keep her quiet for a full decade after impregnating her behind his wife's back. Because he said so. And he didn't make his first million selling steroids (not illegal at the time? Tell it to the IRS because I'm sure he reported it). Because he said so. And he hasn't had plastic surgery. Because he says so. And his hair is 'naturally' orange. Because he says so. So believe him on his height and when he says (you can hear him now or hear him later): "People look up to me...I mean, most people really LOOK UP to me" because of his six foot two status. Because he says so.
Denny says on 5/Apr/14
Gilipollas, "We all saw Arnold barefoot competing in BB so no height issues at all? Really REALLY? Bodybuilding is an activity where the best competitors in the world are shockingly short. Schwarzenegger, true, was not as short as most of his peers (or, in the case of Sergio Oliva, his superior), but being a giant among midgets does not make a giant. Only taller than the relative (though dwarfed by Ferrigno). As to your meeting Schwarzenegger at "the Arnold Classic" (pause here for open laughter, I mean, talk about an oxymoron), fans tend to inflate the height of people they worship. One sees it in the fan meeting a politician all the time. I have a friend who met Ronald Reagan who claimed he was around six foot three or four. Wrong. That measurement is about fan worship, not veracity. In fairness to a lot of celebs, their publicists (also known as 'liars-for-hire') are paid to padd their resume, physical or otherwise and it's up the celeb to back it up on talk shows. So, Schwarzenegger on talk shows saying, flat-out, "I'm six foot two" at any point in his life is laughable. Though with his cowboy boots on, perhaps. He is the same height as Andy Dick and Brooke Shields. Slightly sub six foot.

Nubret was referring at Arnold's peak height, not at himself, he was clearly shorter... And where i said that Nash is 6'6? I was just making an example of people that can disagree with reported heights and Rob, me personally i think that he's 6'7-6'8, no more than that... Yes, i doubt the peak and today's heights of a movies action star/bodybuilder and wrestlers, three industries that are selling fakes and exagerations to the public, this bothers you? Arnold was not 6'1 or 6'2 peak, deal with it...

I'm sorry to comment again but I have to laugh. I'm not even a fan of the guy I think he's a liar and a cheat and a politician. Other then coming to America and making it big his character as a person is poor.

So I guess "fanboy" is pig Latin for " one who uses eyes, evidence, and realistic comparisons to accurately gauge height" unlike you and Rockefella I don't judge people's height based upon whether aim a fan or not. Alucard must be pig Latin for "downgrade everyone two inches".

As soon as you get made out to be the trolls that you are the term Fan boy comes into play. Riveting stuff my friend.

Never believe a bodybuilder beholden to Joe Weider on another Joe Weider bodybuilder. You don't mess with the product if you want to get paid. Bodybuilding is about exaggeration. The muscle rags that Weider owned boosted Schwarzenegger's height because their audience wanted larger heroes, not smaller ones. And Schwarzenegger, since there was (and is) money in exaggeration, was only too happy to back the fiction because fiction sold (and sells) better than fact. Just as Mike Tyson was billed as six foot (five foot nine, please) or five eleven (never), people want bigger, not smaller when it comes to human action heroes.

Junior31, i agree with some heights and disagree with others, what's the problem? Rob is doing a masterful job with this site, but he can be wrong, especially with people that he didn't meet... A lot of people are suggesting the downgrading for a lot of celebrities, under Kevin Nash there are people who think that he's 6'6-6'7 max... I get my estimations from a lot of things, not only this great site... Back on topic with Arnold, the great Serge Nubret (r.i.p.), when asked about Arnold's peak height back in late 60s early 70s, said around 6' foot...

What r u talking about. Who said Kevin Nash was 6'6 peak? One person trolls and suggests that and now that's how tall he is?? I really don't understand your logic when there are a plethora of photos and comparisons regarding Kevin Nash being 6'9 for Christ sake rob is standing with him in 2 photos!! And you see only 9 inches wich is roughly a heads length of difference lol??? 6'6 is absurd. I can understand someone saying he's a half inch or inch shorter but your talking 3 inches. That's ridiculous. I don't even know why I respond. That's how ridiculous that is

And that's funny serge himself claimed 6' but I want you to show me one pic or comparison with serge Nubret being the same height as Arnold. Can't? Because there isn't one.


Why can't you accept that he was 6'1 peak?m seems like you can't accept any height for anyone with out a 2 to 3 inch down grade.

Nash. Hogan. Arnold.

You probably have Rob at 5'5. Rob being 5'5 is equally as absurd as your height estimations

6'1 and Change peak
Weak 5'11 now @ 67'years old and after a 30 yr body building career, a 30 year action movie career and countless spine surgeries after. The debate is over I have nothing more to say to Alucard and Rockefella.

And Rob to keep the web site relevant. You need to downgrade EVERYONE BY 2 INCHES MAYBE EVEN 3!!

Alucard: You are wrong. It is still written on his post on the bodybuilding.com forums where he used to post. When asked about Arnold's height, he said "around 6'2"". Here is the thread where he mentioned Arnold was taller than him. He said he was 6 foot back in his prime and Arnold was 6'2".

This is coming from a guy who hated Arnold even before he died.

rob we are more than 50% here. Majority has the power to decide.
Please, you should update arnold's page:

peak 6ft (183cm)
current 5'10.5" (178-179cm)

it is necessary if you want keep this website believable and realistic.


Lmao. Hands down the best comment of 2014. Do you read yourself. Who is 59 percent? You and Alucard??

If you noticed rob didn't even answer you. You haven't made one realistic comment with evidence nor have you made a comment that made sense.
Alucard says on 4/Apr/14
Junior31, i agree with some heights and disagree with others, what's the problem? Rob is doing a masterful job with this site, but he can be wrong, especially with people that he didn't meet... A lot of people are suggesting the downgrading for a lot of celebrities, under Kevin Nash there are people who think that he's 6'6-6'7 max... I get my estimations from a lot of things, not only this great site...

he was definitely a tall man back then! Aging sucks.
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 3/Apr/14
@kyuss Arnie in that video really looks no less than 4.5-5 inches shorter than Joe whos a big 6ft 5 man, arnie was a 6 footer back then when he made his special guest appearance on Raw he looks around 183cm in the video i think might have been close to 184cm, i think Joe is taller than Hogan who looked in the 6ft 3.75-6ft 4 range, arnie and Hogan must have shrunk now, arnie must be no more than 5ft 11 flat now i agree and Hogan maybe hes just under 6ft 3, BTW that blonde is hot!
RisingForce says on 3/Apr/14
5'11.5" seems like the best guess right now. He's clearly lost noticeable height just the last 5 years because at that time, he still looked like a solid 6 footer and now looks anywhere from 5'11" to a weak 6 footer. I still believe 6'1.5" peak for Arnie. Just look at Predator where he was a bit taller than Carl Weathers who Rob met and said is still around 6'1" or just slightly under.

For those talking about how Arnold couldn't have lost 2 inches because the average for Arnie's age is about 1 inch, just look at Hulk Hogan who is only 60 and most think has lost over 2 inches, and Rob has him down for a 3 inch loss. Arnie had some injuries in the late 90's that may have accelerated his height loss, and some people lose more than others with Carl Weathers or Rob's father as examples of minimum height loss at Arnie's age. If there are examples under the average, there must be people over the average. Arnie didn't always look 6'1.5" to me, but he typically didn't look under 6'1" to me in the 70's and 80's so I personally think the measurement is believable. And it's possible he lost 1 cm or so by the early 90's since he was in his mid 40's by then, and such a loss certainly wouldn't be unprecedented at that age.
Junior31 says on 2/Apr/14
Junior31, i agree on Hogan strong 6'2, waking up at 6'3... But it's probably more than only 2 inches between real and reported height for wrestlers, i heard funny things like 6'10 for Undertaker, when he's probably 6'5-6'6 max, clearly shorter than 6'7-6'8 max Kevin Nash... Lot of funny stuffs in wrestling... But believe me that Arnold peak was nothing more than 6' max...

I respectfully disagree dude. Your downgrading all these guys by close to 2 inches. Please check them on this site Rees a ton of evidence to come to conclusions

Undertaker billed at 6'10. Actual height 6'7.5

Nash billed height 7ft actual height 6'9 and change

Where are your getting your heights from?? Lol
It's like you don't agree with one height on this site. Robs not throwing numbers out there. After meeting these guys and taking into account a ton of pics and angles and footwear etc that's how these heights are put together Please please look them up on this site
kyuss says on 2/Apr/14
Ok look at this picture,arnie is in line with joes mouth.Click Here Now go look at Robs picture with joe,robs head is chin level,,,,,hmmm rob is 5-8",,,Arnie is not over 5-11".

Hogan was a little over 6'5 in his prime and is 6'3.5/6'3.75 range today. Arnie was around 4.5 inches shorter which puts him at around or just over 5'11.

Exactly Roland, and Coleman was slightly offseason, and at his biggest in 2004, 21.7 inch arm, no bull**** 24 inch fairytale stories and magic tapes, probably 21 inch max for Coleman contest weight... And he had one of the biggest arms in history, between top pros second only to the Freakenstein Paul Dillett... No way Arnold had 21.5, lol, probably 20 max at his biggest... Down the drain goes Vince Basile's credibility about 6'1.5 for Arnold's height, obviously... Junior31, wrestlers height is a super overblown stat, a lot of them are fairly shorter than their reported height... Hogan today is a strong 6'2 morning, in my opinion, peak height 6'5 but i can't see more


Agree for most part. I will never argue over a quarter inch but to say as you said he's lucky if he wakes up 6'2 means he's 6'1 during the day lol that's way too low. I can buy strong 6'2 and waking up 6'3 and a hair over for hogan. When I met him was with my 6'3 buddy and he was give or take an eighth of an inch the same height. Agree billed heights are insane. At this point everyone knows that. thus there real heights have become documented aka blogs and celeb heights as we can see. Generally billed heights are consistently 2 inches over the actual height in wrestling. Seems to be the trend. Especially with the wrestlers who style is predicated on strength.
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 2/Apr/14
Hogan was never 6ft 7 or 6ft 8 at peak i can believe 6ft 5.5 or the full 6ft 6, possibily only 6ft 7.5 in the morning.

Alucard. Go to the hogan page on this site there's a plethora of oics and information showing him at a close to 6'6 peak and 6'3 today. Again I go off credible evidence not suggestions or assumptions.
roland says on 1/Apr/14
vince basiles supposed measurement of arnold is a tall tale lol. he says arnold's arms were 21.5... what a load. ronnie coleman's arms were measured ON VIDEO as 21.7 ins.

ronnie coleman's offseason weight is 330 and he is filled with modern drugs
but arnold was only 255 in the offseason and they didnt have very sophistocated roids back then

so if anyone still believe he legit measured arnold's height i have a bridge to sell you

Alucard says on 1/Apr/14
Junior31 how much do you think Hogan's tall today? Do you believe his peak height was more than 6'4, 6'5 morning? What's so absurd about Hogan being 6'2 today?


He was in fact. 6'6 peak, mid day he was a strong 6'5. I've met him 3 times in the past 3 years and each time he was nothing under 6'3. You have to see him in plain clothes and normal footwear with other people. 6'4 peak is laughable. Watch him with Andre the giant, big john stud, undertaker. These are all guys whose NON Billed height is substantial. If he was 6'4 how tall was Andre? 6'7?? Cmon now. Hogan has lost 3 inches in height roughly. And if you say how look at rowdy piper who was every bit of 6'1 and is now barely 5'9. Your not taking into consideration the 7 plus surgeries he's had. Saying that hulk hogan wakes up today 6'2 or even less is ridiculous. Again watch him with a celeb heights listed Joe Mangiello. Watch him with men who aren't billed but actually listed correctly with in a quarter inch in height. This downgrading of everyone really has to stop. I'm not upgrading much like rob I'm using evidence. Your just using bull ****.
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 1/Apr/14
Hogan today is maybe in the 6ft 2.75 range, he is lucky if hes still around 6ft 3 in the afternoon, strong 6ft 2 i think is probably likelier today, though i doubt 6ft 2 flat and hes most certainly not 6ft 5 which he claims now. As for Arnie he probably now wakes up being 5ft 11 5/8s out of bed, 181.3-0cm a few hours later and 5ft 11 flat in the afternoon i agree he does only an above average height guy today.

James B, the answer is simple, he didn't lose all that much height because he was never 6'2 or 6'1, Arnold lost maybe, and i say maybe, 1.5 inches max from his peak height... Peak height 5'11.5, 6' absolute max, today barefoot he's in the 5'10 range, weak 5'11... Rockfellas keep in mind that i am an Arnold fan, i followed all his career and he was an unbelievable bodybuilder, but truth must be told, i also remember well the "The Incredible Hulk" matter, another evidence... He's always been fairly tall, just not 6'2, 6'1 tall, case closed... And about Ferrigno, his peak height was in the 6'2 range, generous 6'3 morning max, but no way more than that...

alucard, we have the same idea about arnold and ferrigno. Arnold is your hero? ok, perfect, but you are objective and rational. I always watched his movies in the 80ies, but I can not accept fake sizes. He was pretty tall, but he claimed an overestimated height. Lou Ferrigno did it the same.
lou ferrigno peak max 6'2.75"(190cm)
arnold peak max 5'11.5"-6ft (182-183cm)

i comment what i see, fanboy31 you find excuses about camera angle.
case closed.
arnold is listed here at 6'1.5", because a guy called vince basile measured him in that way, and his daughter confirmed it!!!! this is unacceptable. Pics are realistic, while on the other hand friends and family testimonials...you can imagine. About today he struggles with 5'11", i think he is max 5'10.5", he is under 6ft for sure. I am not surprised about fanboys, i am surpriesd about rob who must be over the parts. But he "protects" arnold, like a father with his son. I am sorry rob, but i think that arnold begged you to avoid any downgrading in his email. for peak and current height. This is what i think.

Wtf is it with you and this fanboy stuff. I don't like Arnold. What does that have to do with his height. The fact remains that there's something clearly wrong with you. You are now calling this a conspiracy?? Lol dude you need a life. You've downgraded everyone you commented on, your more then likely sub 5'6 and didn't make your high school football team. You have a vendetta against anyone with stature.

First of all the heights I'm speaking about are not there billed ones but actual. Saying hulk hogan is lucky if he wakes up 6'2 is more absurd then saying Arnold's peak was 5'1
James B says on 31/Mar/14
Arnold should not bitch about being under 6' since its all self induced by his years of heavy lifting and taking steroids.
kyuss says on 31/Mar/14
The problem here is arnie has been standing next to a legit 6-5" joe a lot,hiding his height is now more difficult. In the picture here ive tried to find ones with head on views not funny angles which dont give a fair view of his height. Imo in the picture thats a guy just 5-11" and i mean "just". You decide. Click Here
Alucard says on 31/Mar/14
Exactly Rockfellas, i agree with both peak height for Arnold and Ferrigno... About Vince Basile, a bodybuilder defending another bodybuilder's fake height, what's new? Arnold was never 6'1.5 peak, never... Vibram, for sure he losed some height from his peak, but no more than 1.5-2 inches absolute max, he's around 5'10-5'10.5 barefoot today...
Exposed says on 31/Mar/14
I don't trust Vince Basille when he says he measured Arnie at 6'1.5, and here's why. He also claims to have measured Arnie's arms at 21.5" with a pump. However, Arthur Jones has said he measured Arnie's arms semi-pumped at 19 & 7/8. Sergio Oliva has talked about this measurement although he recalled it at 19 & 3/4.

And bear in mind that this measurement was done years after Vince's measurement, when Arnie was not at his prime yet. How is then credible that Arnie's arms could genuinely have measured 21.5 that day?

Frankly this severely calls into question his entire credibility on this issue. I think Arnie was truly around 6ft exactly. The pics that have been talked about a lot on here of him with James Cameron on the red carpet in '92 prove this extensively as far as I'm concerned.
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 31/Mar/14

How did he lose so much height? If he peaked at 187 then at age 66 he should be at minimum 184cm

----

He peaked at 185cm, never 187cm lol. He's now 179/180cm. 5cm loss is not unusual for an old man but is not generally seen until around the age 75-80+. Heavy lifting + years of Steroid use = created his spine to shrink. look up 'Steroid-induced osteoporosis'. He clearly has a 'dowager's hump' like Clint Eastwood, but not as severe.

Rob after i saw a youtube video of arnie standing with 6ft Jimmy Fallon by user Efoersaan and from another user miko who has some pics of 6ft 0.5 John Cena standing with arnie he looked a solid inch shorter than both men so he isnt 5ft 11.5 or .75 more flat 5ft 11-180.5cm check them out the links are on this page what do you think are you now convinced hes 5ft 11 flat today rob? i think he should have a 5ft 11 listing

Kio says on 29/Mar/14
Schwarzenegger is no taller than 5'10" today, even when he was seen with GW Bush who is 5'11", Bush looked an inch taller. I think he was never 6'2" as he has claimed. He was probably 6'1" peak or maybe a bit under.

alucard, fran77, metric, and many others, we are wasting our time. here fanboys have closed eyes. they love arnold, he is their hero, nothing can change a fanboy. But we know the truth. We know he was max 6ft, pics are clear. The final consideration is very easy: "the incredible hulk" tv serie of the 70ies. The marvel production was thinking about schwarzenegger for the role. Arnold was the first choice for the marvel production. But they switched to lou ferrigno because arnold was judged "too little". I underline the story refers to the 70ies. A man tall barefoot 6'1.5" with a weight of 237 pounds was absolutely a big man in the 70ies. Even nowdays a man with those sizes is considered a tall and big man, imagine in the 70ies...but they choosen lou ferrigno, clearly 3 inches taller than schwarzenegger, for playing "the hulk". Ferrigno was 6'3", max max 6'3.5" to be extra generous. Proven on his page. So they excluded schwarzenegger simply because he was max max 6ft, a good height, but not real tall or very tall like a man at 6'3"-6'7". If schwarzenegger was a legit 6'1.5" barefoot in the 70ies with his structure of bodybuilder, he would have choosen for playing the hulk! in the 70ies! for sure! But with a real height barefoot of 5'11.5"-6ft (182-183cm), he was judged "too little". This is the real story about the tv serie "the incredible hulk". The rest are words in the air, just for fanboys. I invite all those fanboys to contact the real staff of the marvel production, and ask them how really tall schwarzenegger was. Good luck.

LOL. Haaa wait in he 70's heights were different? So 40 years ago we've grown a lot bigger in terms of evolution?? Your hysterical. It was 400 Years ago when heights were a few inches less then hey are today.

Marvel theory is absurd like the rest of your comments. Of course with the option they would want to go with the bigger man to play a larger then life character

Oh and by the way have you seen Raw last Monday. What absurd justification do you have for Arnold's appearance with 3 different men all with accurately documented height??

What you call fanboys are people who have a brain and taken into account the evidence. Not those who look at pictures where u can't see people's feet on terrible angles and want to get excited in terms of gauging height. Again live footage with 3 other men says it all.

Please stop commenting , you don't make any sense and after last Monday your argument is as logical as gauging photos with a guy 10 feet in difference from the other.
kyuss says on 29/Mar/14
Well on RAW wrestling he looks embarrassingly short tbh,hogan and joe both tower him,joe legit 6.5" hogan now approx 6-4". Arnie looks like 5-11" max on that show. The facts are now there to see. Sorry Arnie fans. Peak height? Click Here
My guess 6-0.5"
Efoersaan says on 28/Mar/14
Rob I've found evidence that proofs Arnold has dropped below the 6ft mark these days as most people claim here. In this video (aired on the 23th of March 2014) Arnold looks a tad shorter than Jimmy Fallon while both stand next to each other for several minutes. Mr Schwarzenegger is 182 cm on a good day.

How did he lose so much height? If he peaked at 187 then at age 66 he should be at minimum 184c,
miko says on 28/Mar/14
To be fair I don't even think a 182cm listing would be low enough given how short he is looking of late. 180/181 seems about right, he really isn't looking anything over 5'11, he seems to be holding good posture too, so its not like he'll be able to force himself taller for a measurement.

Arnie himself must be noticing it now, back in the 80's he could hold himself well against 6'3/6'4 guys, but now they can look over his head!

[Editor Rob: the argument for the last couple of years has been is he enough to get a 182 listing, Arnie's defending 6ft with his fingernails and an Uzi at the moment!]
Ka says on 27/Mar/14
With Fallon looks at least the same why some people thought shorter. With 6'5 Joe looks a weak 6 ft. I think Arnie should be downgrade to 182 cm
BB says on 27/Mar/14
I ran into Arnold when he came to CT many years ago, around 1983-1985.
I am 6' and was wearing work shoes that day, and he was every bit as tall as me while wearing boat shoes. He was pretty much taller than most people in the crowd when I saw him. I believe he was a solid 6'1 to 6'1.5 at his peak. I took a couple pics and will post them if I can find them.

This ends anything over 511"/180cm for Arnie today,
already 6 inches and Joey would stand 0.75-1" taller if he puts his feet together.

This picture here really does say a lot imo,hes not 6-0",anyone with eyes can see this on that picture. Rob this might hurt the blind arnie fans but a downgrade is very much needed here imo.

This ends anything over 511"/180cm for Arnie today,
already 6 inches and Joey would stand 0.75-1" taller if he puts his feet together

@Junior31,

don't listen Metric and Rockfellas, they are two trolls mentally ill, complexed and envious, escaped from the same psychiatric ward.
Nurses are still looking them.

Rob, please, inform them that you found them and know where they are. lol

Junior31 you said that Arnold is a weak 5'11 today, and i sort of agree, i really think that barefoot today he's a strong 5'10 morning... Of course he's old and shrunk from his young days, also due to weightlifting, but people act as if someone magically chopped off 3 inches from his spine... He was never that tall for a start, he probably lost 1 or 1.5 inches max from his peak, not more... And lol at who said that Triple H is 6'4, is this a joke? And where is the FACT that George Clooney, Bruce Willis are really 5'11, with Arnold being SEVERAL INCHES taller than them? Because they are NOT 5'11, they are shorter without magic shoes and lifts...

Junior: NO he isnt 5-9 today because people dont shrink that many inches. Arnold never shrank much. The height he has today is very close to his prime height. Period.

Some of the theories on here about secret space aliens stealing his spine and making him shrink 30 feet are just bolony. Makes me laugh.


Your ridiculous. If you think a 70 year old man who was a body builder for more then half his life hasn't significantly shrunk sums up he fact that your trolling. He's a weak 5'11 today he shrunk a solid 2 inches. Case closed , we have live footage photos with 3 other men who have valid and realistic heights.

For all those from the 5'11 peak school of thought you don't have a leg to stand on. Again. Case closed.

Arnold on Raw looked shorter than he really is! But yea Id agree 5'11 today and 6'1-6'1.5 peak

rob, i have a question for you. I see you did not hesitate to downgrade boxer tony tucker. i know boxing very well. Tucker has been listed 6'5"(195cm) through his boxing career. He had very long legs, a "slim" body for an heavyweight. He fought against mike tyson many years ago. He toweres over 5'9"(or a weak 5'10" tyson): Click Here
It is also true that he looked shorter than legit 6'4.5" lennox lewis, so i guess tucker could be approx. 6'3.5".
Tucker toweres over holyfield (i repeat holyfield is NOT over 6'1"):

Recently, you met him face to face so you downgraded him at 6'3"(190cm). Ok i can accept it. 6'3" is a tall one. But my question is: if tucker was 6'3", how can you say that schwarzenegger was 6'1.5", so just an inch and half shorter? this is unbelievable rob, i can not understand. you are posting our emails, so many people are saying he was 5'11"-6ft at his peak, but you repeat that this 6'1.5" is fair. there is something strange. thanks for the answer, rob.

It looks like there's a strong 4 inches between Arnold and Joe Manganiello, which makes it seem like Arnold can still stand around six foot.

That is the biggest joke. It is a medically proven FACT that people shrink due to organ and spine compression as they age. People who lift a lot of weight (squatting, overhead presses etc.) shrink even more than normal people.

Clint Eastwood, Hulk Hogan, David Prowse etc. all have shrunk far more than Arnold has. They lost several inches of their height.

Arnold lost 1.5 - 2 inches in his height. That is a FACT! He used to be taller than every 5'11" comfortably by several inches in the 90s and 80s like George Clooney, Shane Black, Bruce Willis and the list goes on.

Metric is right, case closed... A lot of confusion here, first of all during Arnold's time in the offseason he shrunk, he grew into shows like others in history like Kevin Levrone, Phil Heath and so on... From what i know he was never 260lbs, for sure not in offseason... He competed at around 250 in early years but he was very watery and soft... 237lbs is heavy for a 6'2 bodybuilder? Lol, there are guys at 5'8 in the 250-260lbs range shredded... And Arnold was not small at all, even compared to today's bloated athletes, he was the biggest mass monster of his time, he was a beast, only chest and biceps my ass, he was a complete massive beast... Tiny Mike Mentzer was not 5'9, more like 5'7 range... Olympia 1980 Arnold was at his smallest, around 220lbs, and he still dwarfed everyone with mass, if he was really 6'2 or even 6'1 at 220lbs he would have looked like a pole, come on... Bodybuilders heights are overblown stats just like their bodyparts measurements, Ronnie Coleman can catch 5'10 on a good day, not 5'11 as reported, King Paul Dillett is in the 6' range, not 6'1 or 6'2, Ferrigno peak height was around 6'2, 6'3 absolute max, not 6'5 lol... Peak Arnold was a bit shorter than Dillett, 5'11.5 is correct for him, today he didn't lose that much as people believe...
