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.

Sergio Olivia was 5'7.5" at his peak.

I was wearing shoes myself, Doc, let's not forget that! The ones I had on that day have a 1.25 heel. Didn't notice Arnold's footwear (I was too close and wouldn't have thought of it anyway) but I'd have guessed he was at least my height overall.

Peak 6'1.5''. Seemed to lose height in his early 40's.
Doc 182cm said on 6/Dec/16
I examined the photos of him when he was recently in London Rob and I think he is 178.5cm 5ft 10 1/4 in without shoes; just look at the heel rim of his footwear there is at least 3cm on outside and perhaps 1cm on the inside giving him a perceived height of 182.4cm with shoes just a shade under 6ft 183cm like D Morse who recently saw him in London noted.

Its hard to tell 188cm to 185cm peak maybe 183 cm know
Jeff C. said on 5/Dec/16
Ain't no way Sergio was 5'8. Look at the man's proportions for heaven's sake. He was known in his time as a big guy, all round.
AlexItaly said on 4/Dec/16
Another proof that the billed height is correct: in pictures with Bruce Willis (who was 182-183 cm.) in the early nineties, Arnold was clearly taller, over an inch more. That puts him around 187. In recent pictures he is almost even with Bruce, since Arnold lost 5-6 cm and Willis around 1 or 2. So Willis was 182-183 and Arnold 186-187 when they were at their peak. Nowdays maybe Bruce is 180 and Arnold 181-182.

My chiropractor met Arnold at a convention about 10 years ago already, still has the picture with him in his office. His best guess is that Arnold was 5'11" to 5'11.5" at the time. I also have a friend that met him when he toured an Oshkosh Truck plant a few years ago. My friend described Arnold as small, but to be fair my friend is 6'1.5" to maybe 6'2" and about 235 lbs of muscle

@ D Morse - Hi again! I like your reply, particularly the 'knowing grin' bit and the way you expressed yourself 'stumbling on your way!'
If it had been me, I would doubtless have had to hoist myself up from the ground before stumbling on my way!
Yes, these celebrities must be so used to being gauped at wherever they go; I don't think I'd like it much and I certainly wouldn't appreciate the nosy photographers and press hounding me! I'm quite happy being invisible sometimes.
One thing that didn't surprise me though is that you picked up on his height! It just goes to show that one's height really is one of the very first things we take in when we see someone.
Cheers and have a great weekend!

Seems that Sergio Oliva was 5-8 cit.Wiki.
Arnold in every pics was no more, and I say no more, than 4 inches taller. So if I do the maths correcly Arnie in is prime was...
------------

Sure, but here there is also written that he was 178 cm .. So what do we do?
Which one is true? 173 cm or 178 cm? Posterity will judge...

@ D Morse - Hello! What a fantastic and unexpected event that must have been for you! You lucky thing!
I don't know how I'd react if I bumped into someone that famous but I do know I'd have great difficulty keeping my cool!

Well Sandy, I didn't even have chance to prepare my cool, let alone keep it! It was totally unexpected and I just stared (I'm ashamed to say) and eventually stumbled on my way. But Arnold clocked me and gave a knowing grin. I'm sure he's used to much more hysterical reactions, so I probably didn't come off too badly. As for his height, I'm a shade under 6 foot and he looked at the very least the same as me, certainly no less. We were close enough for me to be certain of that.
miko said on 1/Dec/16
Rob, do you think Arnold walks around a lot lower than he'd measure? I mean sometimes in walking shots he can look like a regular 5'10 guy these days when he'd still likely measure 5'11 plus.
Editor Rob: miko, I'm sure he has looked 5ft 10.5 to people in person recently, but under the stadiometer I can't see him under 5ft 11.

Schwarzenegger was 6'1" at his peak. You could tell from his films he was never 6'2". He probably wore lifts in later films.
D Morse said on 30/Nov/16
Walked past Arnold in St James's (London) last night. Did a double-take, as I wasn't exactly expecting to see him. He was with an older gentleman and a woman pushing a pram (has he just had a kid??). He didn't look gigantic, maybe a 6 footer but not much more. He noticed me staring and smiled, so that's my brush with fame.

Harold said on 26/Nov/16
Sayonara, Suckers. It's been a blast (and, frankly, hilarious fun) tweaking and tormenting the celebrity sycophants and fanboys that flock to this page . From the idolaters and groupies to the professional fluffer and midget that runs the site. Bon Voyage. And if you actually believe Arnie was ever six foot two or, 'peak' (please) six foot one and one-half, you are at best naïve and, at worst, well, not terrible bright. Ditto the current five foot eleven and one-half malarkey. ROTFL. In a few more years, you'll figure it out. Harold has left the building.
jervis said on 25/Nov/16
At the time of Batman and Robin he looked around 6ft1 with Clooney.
JasonKim said on 24/Nov/16
Ok, bit of a weird one this but bare with me. If you see George Clooney and Danny DeVito in the recent Nespresso commercials, Danny comes up almost to George's collarbone. If you see pictures of Arnold and Danny at the Golden Camera Awards in Germany last year, Danny comes up to mid-chest on Arnold. If we go with this then Arnold is an inch or so taller than George Clooney (who is comfortably over 5'10). So therefore, yes, probably 5'11 - 6 foot, as most people here say.
JasonKim said on 24/Nov/16
That picture at the top really makes Arnold look like a dwarf. It's terrible. Do you think Rob might actually be Harold??????
Editor Rob: Jason, I can barely reply to every comment as it is, let alone ramble incoherently and make up nursery rhymes about Arnie.
Junior31 said on 24/Nov/16
6'1 then

5'10.5 now.
jervis said on 23/Nov/16
There is also a pic of Arnold shaking Holyfields hand dating back 20 odd years ago,and both men are about the same height,in fact Arnold could have the slight edge on Holyfield.
Johan said on 23/Nov/16
Im impressed with the average votes. That could be very close to the truth, nice to see most give a good logical guess rather than read the 5'11" peak rubbish.

Some quick facts:

Rob has a pic with Chris Eubank and gave the ex boxer 5'10". Arnold was pîctured with Eubank a few years ago ( On his page or here)and still looked 6ft in comparison.

He used to be 4 inches or so taller than Stallone, the difference is down to 3 inches, with equal footwear ofc.

Proving he has lost more than Sly with age.

Rob met Evander Holyfield and gave him 6'1.25" - 186 cm.

You guessed it...A pic circulated here for a while of Arnold and Holyfield standing next to one another. My guess was 5'11.25" from that pic. It looked a standard 2 in difference.
Jervis said on 23/Nov/16
There is a clip on youtube from 1988,he is on to promote the movie Red Heat,there is a very clear shot of him and the 6ft4 listed Ed McMahon and Arnold looks the full 6FT2,if McMahon was indeed 6ft4?
Dmeyer said on 23/Nov/16
Propbably 5 ft 11-11,25 after à long day And 5 ft 11,5 11am today , to me at 85 hé might become 5 ft 9-9,5
DINO said on 22/Nov/16
I SAW HIM IN PERSON MORE ABOUT 5'10.5 my brother is 6'5 my bro litterer towered him.
Canson said on 22/Nov/16
He was without a doubt 6'1 or at least weak 6'1" prime. Yes he has lost height. That shouldn't be that surprising with the life he has lived. I'd say today he's exactly 5'11 at most
Leonardo 1.73m said on 21/Nov/16
Hello Rob. How tall will he be at 85?
Editor Rob: Leonardo, it is something that nobody wants to think about...

I believe he will become one with his age...85 and measuring 5ft 8.5.
Doc said on 21/Nov/16
Arnold is 5ft 10 1/2 in. Period. I am disappointed he didn't take up my suggestion to measure his height for charity. Hmmm, Sad.
datacipher said on 21/Nov/16
I doubt very much he was ever 6'1. Way back in 1988, Andre Agassi appeared on the tonight show (it's actually on youtube now). Agassi was always listed as 5'10 at that time, though in a year he'd start getting listed at 5'11. In any case, when he and Arnold shake hands it was obvious Arnold was NOT 6'2....in fact he looks equal height to Andre, or at MOST 1 inch taller.
Brad 180cm said on 20/Nov/16
Recently saw Arnold out with his old friend JCVD. They were out for dinner at a downtown Restaurant; big Arnie seemed to be eating something vegetarian. Well anyway Van Damme had his height measured by his mother in a recent documentary and she found him to be 177cm - just under 5ft 10in in stature, she was measuring him out for a suit. Anyway, there was at least a 3 inch difference in height between Arnie and Jean Claude. I would imagine Arnie wears lifts so if you subtract about 2cm just under an inch I would guess Arnie is 182cm without shoes - 5ft 11.5in just like you estimated Rob.

lol Harold writes another manifesto about fanboys and cowboy boots.
Peter he actually doesn't stir me up at all... He is just a troll that gets off on trying to break people's balls in here

6'1-6'1.5 peak
5'11 today
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Nov/16
What a load of ranting over someone's height! If he really is a master of illusion, Harold, then he's a damn good one! Seeing him in his Terminator films, he looks ginormous in every way and in the second one, you can see that he is a noticeable amount taller than Robert Patrick, who's 5ft11.5 and 6ft according to the 'X' Files. (about 1.5 inches taller, I wager!)
When he walks into the drinking den at the beginning of T2, one can see that he is as tall as the big biker blokes, only far stronger! He's also big and powerful in 'End of Days' - I'll have to check out Gabriel Byrne's height so I can compare the two next time I see it!
I can't see Arnie below 6ft now, though I must admit that suit he is wearing in the picture above is extremely unflattering and yes, he doesn't look like a tall man in it! He should get rid of it post haste! I'm going to go for just over 6ft for nowadays and 6ft2 for his Mr Universe days. I think that's fair!
Peter 179cm said on 18/Nov/16
The only way Harold's going to stop is if someone manages to personally measure Arnie himself,as Doc said.And even if it happens,i doubt Harold will stop his ranting just like that.
GP said on 18/Nov/16
I was agreeing with Harold on lot of the stuff until he started saying 5'9"now, 5'10" prime? Come on man, you seem to be observant and aware of the reality, but you're losing any credibility by saying 5'10"prime. Makes you sound like a hater in my opinion. I have met him when he was governor, I know people who have known him in his bodybuilding days and I have been seeing him nowadays at the gym. In his peak he was about184cm, now he is around 179cm.
Peter said on 18/Nov/16
I'm not sure why Rob lets Harold continue his obsessive and wearisome ranting on here. He's made his point and ought to drop it now. We've heard it enough times and it just stirs people up in the wrong way.
Peter said on 18/Nov/16
I sincerely hope Harold has never told a lie in his life. And that he wears moccasins everywhere he goes. Poor chap.
JasonKim said on 18/Nov/16
The f-word (fanboys)! Go away Harold. Surely you have better things to do? At least the rest of us manage to discuss this topic with something approaching reasoned good humor. If this whole thing enrages you so much, go away.
Harold said on 18/Nov/16
@JasonKim: "If he was insecure about his height he..." If? Really? If? I'd say a guy who admits to owning over 50 pairs of male high heels (cowboy boots) is just a tad, well, let us say, conscious of his height and what it means to his fanboys. Do you realize how shattered their image would be of the man if he fessed up to lying about that image for so many decades? No doubt, he finds it highly amusing that the debate wages and that people 'waste so much time and energy,' arguing about it. Though one could argue we find it amusing that he has spent his lifetime making joke movies, linked in a fake marriage, diddling the maid, encouraging millions of kids to take steroids and lie about it, while spending loads of money on fake teeth and dyed hair and a nose job. Oh, but his private plane is bigger than yours. There's a life well spent.
JasonKim said on 18/Nov/16
I don't think Arnold hides his height. He is often out and about on his bike or the gym in a pair of flat slip-on shoes, and often in the company of - and photographed with - people who are considerably taller. If he was insecure about his height he wouldn't be so eager to do this and would Munster-up, like Stallone, before going near anybody. I bet he finds it highly amusing that people waste so much time and energy arguing with one another about his height.

Maybe he has already posted on here under a different name.
Peter said on 18/Nov/16
Harold said on 17/Nov/16 "Five foot ten, peak. Five nine and change today."

And Harold is one accusing Arnold of farce????

For what it's worth, I'm with the general consensus on this one. Young Arnold was 6'1 and current Arnold is probably 5'11.

Like Doc says, the guy doesn't take himself too seriously, interacts a lot with his fans (and even his detractors) on the internet, and is happy to raise money for charity. I think he'd be up for measuring. He mentioned his own height at just over 6 foot a few years back, so it's not as if there'd be any great shocks in store.
Dmeyer said on 18/Nov/16
In récent pics unlike 3 years back , arnie could look just 3,5in over today 5 ft 7,5 de Niro so 5 ft 11 flat today is à possibility
Harold said on 17/Nov/16
@Doc & @JasonKim: uh, you guys do realize that the man has spent his life in the illusion industry, right? When you work at the fantasy factory, you get paid to pretend. As in pass yourself off as something you're not. The idea that little Arnie would flat-out lie for his lifetime (and get well-paid for it) and suddenly, as he turns 70, decide to come clean is...well, let's just say that it's not in his character. The show must go one. Or, in his case, farce. Five foot ten, peak. Five nine and change today. As a buddy of mine, who is a captain in the Los Angeles Fire Department said, upon meeting Schwarzenegger: "I didn't realize he was short." Now, five nine or ten isn't short, but it certainly is if you've been passing yourself off as four or five inches taller. Pathetic, really.
Doc said on 17/Nov/16
One of the reasons why Arnold is very likable is the fact he doesn't take himself too seriously; in other words he is one of the people. We can identify with him. That's what helped him get elected as Governor in the first place. We the people like him. I would directly put it to Arnold, who I suspect reads this page; to let you Rob measure his height for charity. And who cares if it turns out he is 5'10, you can lose at least 2 to 3 inches of height with age. So Arnold Go For It - I challenge you....
JasonKim said on 16/Nov/16
Can we all club together and offer Arnold some money for charity if someone can measure him for us? One of you guys here who goes to Golds Gym, suggest it next time you see him.
Peter 179cm said on 16/Nov/16
@ GP That's why people underestimate 5'11,because most who claim it are anywhere 5'8-5'10 and sometimes even less.

The photo that Priyom posted is from Gold's Gym. I have seen Priyom in the gym and he is NOT 5'11". He is closer to 5'9", possibly lower than that. He has done some acting work and on his twitter page he has a photo with Michael Keaton where he looks shorter than Keaton, who nowadays isn't more than 5'8". It's funny cuz the same day the photo is from, I also saw Arnold in the gym and I remember he was working out with Ralph Moeller, who towered over him. I saw him again recently working out with a trainer and he was like 5'10.5"-5'11". You also gotta take into account that he has a big head and his hair make him look taller

Mind you, Johnson is prone to exaggeration to suit his story. In a Rolling Stone article he swore that Ferrigno had 26" biceps. Hmm.
Just the facts said on 15/Nov/16
I'd apologise Doc. I generally don't recall that, and watched it a few months back. Even if he did say that, I'm fairly sure it's bull. There's no chance a 1970s Arnold was 5'10".
Doc said on 15/Nov/16
Response to the person who listed themselves as '' Just the facts '' : Quote regarding Arnolds height being quoted as 5'10'' by Kenneth Johnson was from the directors commentary on the DVD The Tncredible Hulk Series 1 - Episode 1 the movie.
Just the facts said on 15/Nov/16
"It is also important to bare in mind that back in the 70s Arnold auditioned for the Incredible Hulk series but didn't get the role of the Hulk character partly due to the fact according to the director Kenneth Johnson he wasn't tall enough in fact the director is quoted to having said that Arnold was only about 5ft 10..."

I'm sure Johnson never said 5'10. I don't recall this from any articles or DVD interviews. Yes, height was one of the things that worked against Arnold in this case - but what you need to remember is that originally even Lou Ferrigno wasn't considered tall enough. The role actually went to Richard Kiel, purely because of his superhuman height. The Hulk character was supposed to be well over 7 foot tall after all. It was only when the first episode was already being shot that they decided Kiel didn't look an impressive physical specimen and that they would have to go with a bodybuilder. As there was nobody with both an impressive bodybuilding physique and a height over 7 foot, they downgraded significantly to a 6'4" Lou. In the episodes, characters still describe the Hulk they have sighted as being over 7 foot tall.
Red said on 14/Nov/16
To revise my former estimate, I'd say 6'1.5.

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/16: He was near 6ft2 in his prime, get over it guys. He came to this country with nothing and achieved more in a relatively short period of time than any of you jealous trolls combined ever will...

You are so right: because what the 21st Century needs is an Austrian strongman who believes that might makes right. What could go wrong there?
Doc said on 14/Nov/16
I think Rob that Arnold was 183.5cm 6ft 0.25in max at his peak perhaps a tad smaller. But today I would say he wears lifts and his height without shoes is closer to 179cm 5ft 10.5in. This is clearly evident from the photo that he had taken with 5'11.25in Tony Blair outside No. 10 9yrs ago where it is clear that Arnolds shoes look to have a thicker heel. It is also important to bare in mind that back in the 70s Arnold auditioned for the Incredible Hulk series but didn't get the role of the Hulk character partly due to the fact according to the director Kenneth Johnson he wasn't tall enough in fact the director is quoted to having said that Arnold was only about 5ft 10 in in height even back then, but I don't think this is accurate - as I've already stated I think he was a bit taller than that even back then.
Peter 179cm said on 13/Nov/16
@AlexItaly 186-187cm with shoes on at night in his 20's-30's i can believe that but Ferrigno did tower over him,atleast 3 inches.So that'd make Lou 6'5 which he wasn't.He was also listed 185cm in his early participations in bodybuilding competitions.All i'm saying is there's more chance Arnie was 184-185 range rather than 186-187cm,but each one to their own ofcourse.One thing though,Harold's own take on Arnies current height is not far of the truth but as for his peak estimate,it's just way off.

No way you are 5ft11, either you have been measuring yourself wrong or you're just blatantly lying. Arnold today is nothing more than 181cm, so that would put you at no more than 5ft9. The only way your 5ft11 claim would have seemed sensible, is that if he was actually 6ft1.5, but that's not the case at all.
Jordan said on 12/Nov/16
Priyom,

Post proof you are 5'11 so Rob can verify it. If So, then yes Arnold is 6'1.5. However we need Proof that you are 5'11 just like all the other posters have agreed to do.

Rob, this photo in my opinion is nullifying.
If this guy is really 5'11 as he says, then Arnold and near if not exactly at 6 feet mark.
Arnold is slightly tilted and yet he is taller than the guy. If he was standing straight he would be close to 6 feet, there is no way he is 5'11".
To me, the current height at the top at this page should be changed at 6'0".
Rob could be ask to this guy if he give you the permission to post this photo at the top of the page, what'd you think?
Editor Rob: Lucio, I don't put anybody's photos on the top of the page anymore.

The only exception I made was for Big Jay, who holds an honorary and permanent photo on the Dolph page.

@ Priyom Haider Nice photo,but i'd say you're probably not 5'11,more like 5'9-5'9.5

here a 20 y.o. schwarz. with claimed 5'10"(178cm) bill pearl: Click Here

Arnold looks 1 inch taller excluding the hair. SO ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER WAS in the 5'11"(180cm) range at his peak, the rest is pure fantasy for fanboys. Rob, update this profile, you know very well he wasn't 6'1.5"(187cm).

This finally.
Arnie was and is a tall person, but of course not as much as he claimed: FACT. There are lot of people that boost their height much more than Arnie makes/made: Fact. So I don't blame him.
182 cm. his peak-179 now days.

Arnie was and is a tall person, but of course not as much as he claimed: FACT. There are lot of people that boost their height much more than Arnie makes/made: Fact. So I don't blame him.
182 cm. his peak-179 now days.
Case closed.
HonestSlovene said on 11/Nov/16
186-187 cm peak and 181-182 cm now, no more no less. Posting pictures of peculiar camera angles and uneven ground does not prove anything IMO.
AlexItaly said on 10/Nov/16
There is no need of exaggereting athletes height in body building. Infact noone does and never did. That's just a pretext to say Arnold pumped his height. Remember he was, barefoot, eye level with Jeff Bridges wearing sneakers. So he maybe he was never that giant in height, maybe 186 at night and 187 peak, but he never was under 186 until his forties. He lost a lot of height in the last years and that's ok. Furthermore Ferrigno was a legit 6'4 and Arnold was 2 inches shorter in ever picture with him. And taller than any other bodybuilding of his time. He edged out even on 6'1ers. So, Harold, canalize your hate into something else. You're done here.
Chasgreenberg said on 9/Nov/16
15 years ago skiing at Sun Valley, Arnold was chatting at the top of the hill. I stood a couple feet away, without disturbing Arnold and friends. I asked 2 of my friends who was taller? They said Arnold...at least 2 inches.. I am 5'8 inches.
Peter 179cm said on 9/Nov/16
He was a weak 6'1 at his peak.He was always 3-4 inches shorter than 6'4 peak Ferrigno, but wore thick footwear in his movies to appear 6'1-6'1.5 in some of them(take Predator for example,he looked at least the same height as Carl Weathers who was no less than 6'1 back in the 80's).
Now he's most likely 5'10.5-5'11 anywhere in that range when standing upright.So basically he's shrunk 2 inches at 69 which is not uncommon.
Jordan87 said on 8/Nov/16
Flint, your in my boat. I have him as a 6 footer when young. 5'10 is BS and so is 6'2.
Flint said on 8/Nov/16
Harold, your posts are brilliant and very funny. I agree that Arnold wasn't ever 6'1 1/2 barefoot and that bodybuilding runs along the same lines as wrestling. It dates back hundreds of years in the form of circus entertainment where exaggeration was all part of the recipe. But I think he was taller than many and so I'd guess that he was about 6'0 when young. At his age, shrinkage has taken a couple of inches off peak.

@ Dean That's only about 8cm difference,how exactly is that called dwarfing/towering?? DeNiro is actually no more than 170-171 these days,which again puts a present Arnie at around 179cm or 5'10.5.

Looks more than 8cm to me. Nevertheless it's one in the eye for all these people who'll put a peak Arnold at 5'10 and try to call him less these days.

Justin said on 6/Nov/16
@Christian yeah just giving my opinion mate based on what I've observed from Arnies movies starting from Hercules in New York. I think the key measurement was made by Vince Basille giving Arnie 6ft1.5 plus the other observations I've made of him. I believe that measurement was accurate and that was when he was in his 20s so wouldn't have lost any height. Harold I don't know what Arnies fling with his housekeeper has to do with his height but everyone is entitled to their opinion

It's obvious Basile has no love for Arnold so why would he bother to upgrade him from Harold's BS 5'10 peek to 6'1.5??

I couldn't imagine Daniel Day Lewis being a better terminator than what Arnold portrayed. Lewis is an awesome actor one of the very best but
Annie sold more tickets at the box office.

I was initially going to reply to Harold, but it's not worth it. If he wants to keep believing the delusion that Arnold is only 5ft10, then I'll let him. At the end of the day, he's going to be the laughingstock of Celebheights, not Justin, Dean or myself.
Harold said on 5/Nov/16
Oh, Christian, you're being unchristian in launching your attacks,
I have nothing but respect for Arnie. Nothing but respect. Because impregnating your wife and your maid on the same week in the same bed really displays character. Keeping it a secret from your family and the electorate who trusted you enough to vote for you truly confirms their trust. And I am not alone in my respect. Can you imagine how much Daniel Day-Lewis respects an actor of such great range as Schwarzenegger? A peer such as that? That profound respect from the entire movie industry explains the sheer number of Oscars Arnold has won and has displayed on his fireplace mantel. As to your definition of the man as 'one of the most respected bodybuilders,' yes, certainly, compared to Bertil Fox, the 3-time Mr. Universe who murdered his girlfriend and her mother, or Craig Titus, serving life in prison for murder, or Dennis Tinerino, 4-time Mr. Universe, who served time for pimping, or Craig Titus, who murdered his girlfriend, or...well, shall I go on? Yes, in that context, the wannabe six footer Arnie shines supreme. Truly, by comparison, a class act. Tell me, do you also go to Bill Cosby for dating advice? Hint: he doesn't lace their drinks with protein powder. I have no doubt you also greatly respect his lifetime accomplishments. ROTFL.
Justin said on 5/Nov/16
Also if you watch Pumping Iron theirs a scene at the start where Arnold walks into Golds Gym barefoot and shakes the hand of fellow bodybuilder Big Mike Katz and they appear the same height and he's listed 6ft1-2.
Justin said on 5/Nov/16
@ Harold I think if you look at Arnold's early movies such as Stay Hungry from 1976 when Arnold was 29 he looks a similar height to 6ft1.5 to 6ft2 Jeff Bridges and like in Pumping Iron he is barefoot in some scenes. Anything under 6ft1 peak doesn't sound right. I think Arnold now like Clint Eastwood has lost considerable height but you can't forget their peak heights
Harold said on 5/Nov/16
Justin, I promise that pro bodybuilding is no different than pro wrestling in terms of inflated heights. Pro bodybuilding and pro wrestling are similar in that they are not sports, per se, but exhibitions. And the money lies in the exaggeration. The lifters blatantly lying about their heights is part of kay fab. As is their silence on their own steroid use. They are just selling tickets. Whether they are also selling their souls along the way is for the audience to determine.
jervis said on 5/Nov/16
To be fair DeNiro is no more than 5ft7 these days and gets dwarfed by 5ft10 guys.Arnold looks about 4 inches taller putting him in the 5ft11 range. Arnold peak was around 6ft.05 too 6ft1 and now 5ft11 IMO.

Harold, you're being ridiculous (no offense) Sure, Arnold wasn't quite 6ft1.5 peak, but to say that he was 5ft10 max? It's getting to the point where you're starting to launch personal attacks on not only Arnold but to anyone who disagrees with your absurd opinion. You even called the man pathetic at one point, and that same man is one of the most respected and acclaimed bodybuilders/actors in modern history. And you have no clear evidence that he ever wore lifts. Arnold at peak was around 185-186cm and currently anywhere from 180-182cm.
Harold said on 4/Nov/16
@Justin: Vince Basille also accuses Arnie of rape. Do you hold Basille's word to be true when it relates to Arnie's height but not to his habits? If Basille's word is credible to you, then you'd have to believe him in every regard. The fact is that pro bodybuilding, like pro wrestling, sells the product by fudging the figures. It's all about the money. Exaggeration sells. If Arnie had ever, in his life, been six one and one-half, his beloved cowboy boots (the equivalent of male high heels) would have made him six three or so. Did he ever, in his lifetime, appear six three plus? No. Never. You then might think, 'but Arnie would never lie about his height.' Really? Because he would hold strict to the truth with his noted personal integrity when it came to his height, but not when it came to hiding a secret family from his own wife and children?
Peter 179cm said on 4/Nov/16
@ Justin Maybe it was a morning measurement or at least earlier in the day,so about 6'1 flat in the 60's is definitely possible, and around 5'10.5 these days. I mean we're talking a 50-year gap,looong after his bodybuilding days.And since people believe Clint Eastwood has shrunk from nearly 6'4 to about 6'0 on a good day at 86 yrs old,then Arnie could be on the same level,more or less.Some people just have the genetic potential to lose a big amount of height throughout their life,while others are luckier and maintain it to a certain degree.

Dean said on 4/Nov/16
Harold, get your facts straight. Arnold's height and measurements had been recorded in magazines and competitions for many years before 'Pumping Iron' was even made. I'm sure you'll say these measurements were vastly exaggerated too (well, you'll have to really, in order to make your own argument work). If Arnold had never been a tall man then he would never have become known as such, simple as that. You'd have him billed as well below 6 foot even in his younger days, which would automatically - and greatly - downgrade every other bodybuilder of that period. So, what - Frank Zane was 5'6"? Nonsense, look at his body proportions. Franco Columbo was only 5'? I'm pretty sure that some bodybuilding measurements are slightly exaggerated, but I don't believe that height is one of them. There's no need. Many bodybuilders are short and always have been. It's the development of their bodies which is considered impressive, not their natural height. For whatever reason you hate Arnold. That's fine. We get it. Your choice. But until you have concrete proof of his height, you should stop raving so much and attacking everyone who has an opinion. That's all yours is too, whether you like it or not. An opinion.
Justin said on 3/Nov/16
I think if their was one sport where people have inflated heights and weights then it's the sport of wrestling. A example of this is when Kurt Angle started in the wwe/wwf he was billed as 6ft2 lol his actual height is around 5ft10. As much as I like wrestling I wish they gave real heights and weights but I guess that goes with the whole mystery of wrestling
Justin said on 3/Nov/16
Vince Basille confirmed his measured height as 6ft1.5 so that's more evidence. I agree he's under 6ft now I believe steroids and weight training has affected that and age.
Harold said on 3/Nov/16
The problem with 'peak height' as a category is it is, as we have seen not just with Arnie but with so many others, problematic in terms of accuracy. Perhaps 'billed height' would be an improvement as a category. My two cents.
kurtz said on 3/Nov/16
@ danimal my was a mistake only on his wife... but don't change anything. he is not reliable on his height, unless was meausured by god in "person" that was not the case.
Harold said on 3/Nov/16
@ Justin: Pumping Iron was a vehicle created to sell bodybuilding and to sell Arnie to the general public. To do so, they 'God-ded him up a bit," as they say in Hollywood. In other words, they added inches to his height and to his calves and he was only too happy to oblige with the fraud, as it meant selling himself and his 'sport.' The fact that anabolic steroids are not even mentioned once during the 'documentary,' tells you all you need to know about both its accuracy and its veracity. While bodybuilders are larger than life, they are not taller than life. But, like pro wrestling, exaggeration sells to the public. No one goes to the circus expecting average or ordinary.
Justin said on 3/Nov/16
I'm a massive Arnold fan and admit Arnie has lost height probably due to excessive lifting and weight training over the years maybe 5ft11.5 is about right for current height I agree with Rob. Peak height I believe he was between 6ft1-2 186 to 187cm seems about right. My evidence apart from his 187cm measurement but if you watch Pumping Iron he's bigger not only in size but height.
Danimal said on 2/Nov/16

Yeah he was never a legit 6'2", maybe was close if measuring straight out of bed.

@JamesC(not Cameron!): No one says, "oh, a friend of mine met him and he's really small." Small isn't up for debate. Height is. Because many eyewitnesses do say that he's shorter than advertised. Much shorter. As in Five nine or ten rather than six foot two, as he insisted, for decades. (Perhaps his psychological ailment of "Biggerexia" included height 'isues').

@Rick Rude and firecracker: I warn you, honesty, rather than blind hero worship, doesn't go far on this page. Idolatry has increased the man's size by five inches or so. Rick Rude, I think you are being kind and generous to speculate he was once actually six feet tall. firecracker, you are 100% correct and accurate to call b.s. on arnie's supposed 6'1.5" 'peak' (and even worse, his self-proclaimed insistence he was six foot two (pause for open laughter). The only thing more pathetic than a man with an admitted 50 plus pairs of cowboy boots are the fanboys who swallow his every lie hook, line, and sinker.

Without the cowboy boot and lifts, maybe five ten.

Maybe.

I think it is not hard to SEE in his old movies (lets say until early 90ies) that he was 187-186 cm. tall
Not very tall, but tallish, appearing very tall with the right boots/shoes. Nowdays he is a tad under 183. Nothing strange, my father, who is the same age, was 183 and is now 180. He never weighted lifts and did anything that stressed his body so he is pretty youthful to be a 70 year old man but still he lost a few centimetres of height. I can easily accept Arnold lost about 5 centimetres, from 187 to 182.
firecracker said on 1/Nov/16
time runs but lies resist on this website. Arnold peak 6'1.5"(187cm) was a pure fake!!! he was in the 5'11"(180cm)range barefeet. Anything over 6ft (183cm) is a lie for his peak.

sammartino was 5'9"(175cm). don't joke to say sammartino was 6ft!!! arnold looks 1-2 inches taller than sammartino, but you can clearly see he was way far from a legit 6'2".

Absolute balls that Arnold is 5'9 or under. I'm 5'10" and met him at the talks he has done in Britain in the past couple of years. He was taller than me and much bulkier in build. And I'm not a skinny dude. With the build he has, if he was any shorter than me he would look like some kind of Warhammer dwarf. It's so easy for people to pipe up and say 'oh, a friend of mine met him and he's really small'. People are talking out of their backsides. I'd say the general opinion here is spot on. He used to be 6'1 and is now 5'11.

Ok, I normally don't report things like this since it's just heresay, but it's not the first time I've been told it. Apparently Schwarzennager is not even 5'11" now...he's 5'9". A friend, who stands at 5'9.5" was swearing that when she met him, he stood just under her, with no shoes on. This was back in 2004. A few years ago, I also heard the same thing from a studio exec. Now I know this seems crazy, especially since Schwarzennager did seem like a 6'0"-ter in Pumping Iron, but I just wanted to throw this out there. If anyone else has stories like this, or actually met with him in person, I'll all ears!
Junior31 said on 24/Oct/16
You guys need to check out the amount and type of surgeries he has had. Your right. The average 70 year old will lose in inch or more but when you have had knee back and neck surgeries. Do yourself a favor and double that.

Jordan87 said on 24/Oct/16

I think Arnold has been refreshingly straightforward in his height claims. He's not saying he's 6'10" or something like that, but that he was almost 6'2" at one time and is now down to close to 6'. If you look at him next to Jesse Ventura in Predator, I think Arnold was indeed 6'1" or 6'2" at one time and maybe has lost an inch, as most people do by the time they get to his age...

There's nothing wrong with five nine or ten,
No one says he's five foot two.
Arnie's real height, is a matter of speculation:
179 cm? 181?
They are just numbers, gradations,
Declarations, qualifications,
But, alas, when Arnie talks,
the word is prevarication,
Because after the decades he spent in the gym,
It's only the nose, like Pinocchio, that grows.
A 'lifter' now, not in weights,
But in male pumps and heels.
Quick, fanboys, bring an extinguisher,
Because the cost for a lifetime liar,
is a pair of pants on fire.

Arnie in now days 179-181 cm.

I run the risk of Harold calling me a 'fanboy' here, but Jim Caviezel looks as though he's borrowed some of Stallone's munster boots on those pictures. And let's not overestimate the heel on most cowboy boots, which will probably only give 1.5 inches, as opposed to 1 inch or so on a standard men's shoe. I'm not saying Arnold is 6'2", but nor is the fellow the midget some folk are desperately wishing him to be.

I just saw a photo of my 2 bosses with Arnold in early late 80s/90s. They used to own a gym. One is 6', the other 6'2". No way in hell Arnold was 5'11" back then. Definitely between 6'1" and 6'2". Admittedly, his shoes are not visible in the picture. If his shoes were nornal, for sure at least 6'1" at peak.

No, leave his peak alone. I see a lot of variation in his current height though. Can go from looking barely 5ft10 to still over 6ft. Lifts may likely play a part though

@JimHopper

Actually, if "people see arnie in public and say he's 6-2"" then there wouldn't be the amount of speculation there is concerning his height. I'd say most people who see arnie in public say he is nowhere near six foot two, which is why his alleged and supposed and self-proclaimed height is a bone of contention. The only people I've ever heard of on this planet who proclaim Arnie six foot two are the man himself (who made a living exaggerating his physical dimensions) and an ex-bodybuilder from Canada who now lives in Australia. Two voices do not a consensus make...
Peter 179cm said on 5/Oct/16
Anyone between 183-185cm can measure atleast 186-187 range with big-soled dress shoes or boots on. MAX 185cm for Arnold in the 60's-70's era and 183-184cm in his 80's-90's acting career (barefoot estimates).As for now, the guy has looked anything between 177 and 182 depending on his posture and footwear ofcourse so no doubt he's lost a noticeable amount of height since his prime,but he looks 179-180 range more often than not with other celebs so my guess is he's 179 minimum 180 max these days.

Point is, I never think a 6ft2 inch individual barefoot is a 6ft4 inch individual with shoes on. Probably due to the fact that I dont walk around like Mahatma Gandihi....

But my point is that! People see arnie in public and say hes 6-2" etc etc etc...Yes in shoes! So he in truth is never 6-2" point and case.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/16
186cm would be the absolute lowest I'd argue for this guy. But 6ft1½ looks fair. He could pull off 6ft2 as often as 6ft1 range. Anywhere between those is arguable.

Harold he was quite close to 6'2" at his peak and he probably did measure around this mark earlier in the day. He was most likely a weak 6'2/strong 6'1 guy and now more of a strong 5'11 guy. Vince Basile is legit.
HonestSlovene said on 30/Sep/16
Most likely a strong 6'1.5 peak but now he seems to be just a strong 5'11 so a 2 inch loss is a bit above average for his age but nothing drastic, more likely due to steroid abuse.
Harold said on 30/Sep/16
It interests me how the fanboys believe Arnie is just a little bit of a liar and not a big fat whopping liar. So the fanboys give him six foot one as his height (even though Arnie insisted on six foot two) for the majority of his life. Newsflash: the man has been caught lying and exaggerating again and again. The fact that he profited from lies and advanced his career from them doesn't make the lie the truth. It makes the liar successful as a liar and fraud. His business mentor, Joe Weider, never met a lie he didn't like and was fined, repeatedly, by the US government for intetional fraud. Deliberate deceit and media manipulation is what the "six foot two" malarkey has always, always been about. The fifty pairs of cowboy boots that Arnie admits are in his closet are there for a reason: to bump up, artificially, his height. Five eleven peak, if that. Five ten (or less) today. It's less about shrinkage than about lying about his height from day one. Pathetic.
WBK said on 30/Sep/16
I think the truth is that Arnold was about 6'1 as a young fellow - as he himself used to state in interviews before his Hollywood days (and even when he first started out in films). This got rounded up to 6'2 by the usual publicity machine, and just became a figure that he and the rest of the world stuck with ever since. he's lost a couple of inches since then (so maybe 5'11), and his posture isn't always great which can add the illusion of an inch or two less than that. Plus the expectation is that he's a gigantic mythical figure, and of course he isn't. He's a man. Only slightly above average height, and with a slightly stockier overall build. So therefore the first impression people have is that he's not as big as they would expect.
MAJID said on 29/Sep/16
First of all please bear in mind that looking at pics will not give u an accurate view of the persons height. Many times some people slouch when posing while some have a good posture. So you cant make a dead accurate guess looking at pics. As far as Arnold is concerned everyone knows that when they see him in real they are confused to see a much smaller man. Arnold may be in his peak would be 6 feet at max but now a days he is not more than 5 11. Even in the movies when he was in his 40s he never looked 6 feet 2 ( as he claims ).

No one has ever said arnie is 6-3/6-4" which he would be if he was 6-2" flat. Think about it!!! People say hes 6-2" and lets be honest the footwear is defo always cowboy boots or boots. So imo he is approx 6-0.5" prime height.

Ok,i take my opinion back...there's also a video showing Arnold meeting some of the Barcelona players and getting a few pictures with them.Next to listed 173cm Neymar he looked near 180 with similar posture,maybe 179 at worst (5'10.5 range).When Arnold took a selfie along with Neymar though,he stood very loosely while Neyman basically stood well, i guess that's why they looked pretty similar height-wise on that photo.

There's a recent pic on Arnold's facebook page with Neymar and he (Arnold) barely looks the same height as him... It's not a proper angle but considering Neymar could be as low as 173cm then that's bad news for Arnie...
yabadabadoo said on 23/Sep/16
180 when he was young is ridiculous, nowadays I agree. Google and you can see he looks 180-181 beside Neymar/Rafinha Alcantara/Javier Mascherano (footballers of F.C.Barcelona, officially 174cm all of them). I think he has lost much height, he looks compressed. My estimation in his youth: 187 morning, 185 night. In that case I'd say he was 186 and that's why he used to say I'm 6'2", a "lie" but not so far from the truth (with shoes on he was that tall).

If, in actual fact, Arnie was, as listed here, five foot eleven and 3/4's of an inch, that would make him around six foot one in present day in cowboy boots? He is nowhere near that height in present day. Time for an honest assessment of his current height and an updating that is within the realm of reality rather than schoolboy crush fantasy.

i think he was about 187 morning and 185,5 evening and when he started with steroids he could still hold a little over 186 in the evening. I was put on testosterone replacement therapy a couple month ago and the funny thing since then is that even on my legs day when lifting 400 pound for an hour i still am almost as tall as my morning height. I have measured myself for fun a coule of times and since i got testosterone from doktor i only shrink about 5 mm during the day. SO i guess thats why arnold looks a little shorter already in the 1990s. he stopped the steroids and was still 187 in the morning but went from a little over 186 in the evening to little over 185 evening.and now he have shrunk from 185 to maybe181-182 at 70 years and thats its pretty normal.

Nowadays he is under 5'11". I have seen him in the gym several times. I remember that I met him when he was still a governor and he looked 5'11"-5'11.5" but he was wearing his favorite brown cowboy style boots. From talking to people who had known him in his hey days, they all say that he was under 6'2" and more so between 6"-6'1". I have always pegged him at 184 in his prime with great posture and puffy hairstyle.
Voice of Reason said on 16/Sep/16
Apart from the odd off-the-wall whacko, someone who claims to have seen Arnold and towered above him because really he's only 5'6", and not even mentioning Harold with his never-ending supply of capes, Conan swords and fanboy taunts to scatter around like confetti he's got a warehouse full of.... apart from all of that I think the general agreement is that a peak Arnold was 6'1" and he's now 5'11".

Sorry, but anabolic steroids do not make you (or Arnold or anyone, for that matter) taller. Not now. Not then. Not ever. Stronger - if you know what you are doing, absolutely. Taller? No. Zero medical data would confirm your conjecture. Zilch. So the idea that Arnold was three and one-half inches taller when he took them because he took them, well, please. Has age shrunk Arnie? Absolutely. But how much is the question. On one hand, you have the 'you can't lose what you never had' camp, who believe Arnold has been lying about his height from day one as an obvious way of padding his physical resume, since for the first ten years of his career, his size and supposed stature WAS his resume, so why wouldn't he pad his resume, as many (liars) do in order to market himself? On the other hand, you have the "no, he really was six foot two" camp because of one supposed measurement from 1968 from another bodybuilder or Arnold's own constant declarations of his height (it's not as if Arnie has been caught in lie after lie...oh, wait...).

I'm a competitive weight lifter and had the fortune to meet him (and get a picture next to him) at the Arnold Classic in March. I'm 5'9" barefoot on the money, and I was wearing shoes that gave me about an extra inch. Arnold had me for sure by 1.5" if not closer to 2". He was wearing khakis, a polo shirt, and regular slip-on loafers, so even if he did have lifts like I see people saying they could not have been significant. It was mid-afternoon (so he had probably lost some height as did I from being on our feet all day). I call him at 5'11.5"-6'. 6' would be the MAX. For the record, steroids and weight lifting make you TALLER, not shorter - the bones and joints grow larger, and the pads of your feet even thicken quite a bit, not to mention your posture is much better. I have no trouble buying that he was 6'2" on steroids and lifting every day in his youth. You'd only be shorter on squat day when you have weight on your back...and if you move 405+ lbs for reps for a couple hours, you DO compress those discs. I lose 2" in height on leg day, no joke. TIFWIW

You realize that if you're 5'9" flat and he had you by 1.5"-2" that would put him at 5'10.5"-5'11", not 5'11.5"-6'0" and NO, steroids do not make you taller. Joints and bones do NOT grow from steroids. You are thinking of GH (Growth Hormone) and that only makes you grow horizontally, not vertically.

What you've got to admit is the man, however deluded (or is it calculatingly and deliberately deceiving) is consistent. Now, as to six foot and one half inch, do you think he means with cowboy boots and lifts therein, or do you think he means standing on a stepladder during the measurement?

Shredder,

See below Pic. In Loken's Case I dont think her Hairline is much off her actual top of her head, for what ever reason. Maybe an 1/2" but her Hairline in Rob's Pic is only around 5'9, now compare that with her pic with Rob and she is lucky to get 5'10. Arnold was 5'10.75 at age 55 IMO based on his pics with her and 6'0 in his prime to me.

@Christian: I agree with you on the 185. That's exactly how I've heard Arnold described in person prime. A relative of mine met him in the 70s. It was widely suspected that Arnold was shorter than 6'1 but he was that (they are same height) prime. He's shrunk since (lol steroids and lifting). And I think Lou Ferrigno was a weak 6'4 like 6'3.5, at worst a very strong 6'3 prime
Shredder said on 5/Sep/16
Jordan87 , I noticed that you are looking at the charts wrong , you are looking at where their hair line begins and not the actual top of their heads.

Loken 's hair is really adding nothing and she looks close to 5'11 , maybe a tad less might fit her. Patrick's hair starts at 5'10 but ends at barely 5'11 , I disagree with Rob and think Patrick is max 5'10.75 , I'll give you that.

As for Biehn I have no reason to lie about what I saw or upgrade or downgrade anybody. Biehn had more footwear over me and looked 6 ft and change , so he still would be around the listed height if I saw him in the same footwear as me. Come on now , why would Rob give him 5'11.75 if he thought he looked under 5'11?
Jordan87 said on 4/Sep/16
Shredder , I respectively disagree. Patrick doesn't look over 5'10 with rob ( taking into account that rob mentions Patrick has more footwear.

As far as loken goes , the top picture is what we should all go by since they have equal footwear. To me she doesn't look over 5'10 there , her hair gets her to like 5'10'.75.

As far as Mike bieghn , if he was 6'0 to you shredder I'm not calling you a liar , though you must agree he doesn't look 6 foot in robs pic ?
Shredder said on 4/Sep/16
Loken is at worst 5'10.5 to 5'11 , Patrick isn't over 5'11 now , but 5'10 is too low , Arnold was measured 6'1.5 in his prime , so minimum 6'1 " and Biehn face to face was closer to 6' . than 5'11 , let alone 5'10.5 and Rob agrees. You are way off on all of these Jordan.

Danimal,

Click Here

A Picture is worth a Thousand words, much more then a Claim. Robert Patrick is 5'10, no taller. He is pictured with Rob at 5'10.5 on this site and Rob said Robert's footwear was 1/2" Thicker, So Robert Patrick is 5'10. Arnold is 1.25" taller than Him in the picture I posted. Yes he is a good deal younger in the pic then he is now, likely around 60yo. I cannot believe he shrank more then 2" at age 60. A Man his age ( In the Photo) Shrinks around 1" Tops. Arnold was maybe 6'0.25 in his prime. To argue for another inch Danimal is stupid but I am certainly ruling out that he was some vanilla 5'10 guy in his prime. No way I believe that. He was a tall man in his prime, hovering around 6 foot again I have him for a 5'11.5 to 6'0.5 range as a young man.

I would go what Arnold appears in pictures more than a guy who has claimed to have measured him. I never Got the impression Arnold was 6'1.5 in his prime.

Arnie is not taller than 5'10.5 today( late 60's). I believe he was 6'0 tall In his prime more or less. He was only 1/2" taller than 5'10ish kristanna loken when he was 55 years old. Could not have shrunk more than 1.5" by his mid 50's people sorry. He was right around 6 foot in his prime . Still tall.

Again, I don't know why people don't understand that he was measured in 1969 by a man who did not even like him and still doesn't to this day (Vince Basile). He measured him barefoot at night at 6'1.5".

Kristianna Loken is 5ft11, not 5ft10. And there's even a pic of her with Rob to prove it. So that would make Arnold 5ft11.5 at 55 yrs old. Please get your facts right first.

Ah, yes, because it would be incomprehensible to question the word/veracity of a steroid-using bodybuilder on another steroid-using bodybuilder on a supposed incident that supposedly took place 47 years ago. It's not as if Vince Basile is treated as a joke on every single bodybuilding website. Oh, wait... But I understand where you're coming from: Vince also refers to Arnold as a 'real he-man.' Arnold six one and one-half? Only in your dreams, Sunshine.

Nowadays he looks much shorter than he was in his prime

@ Jordan87 You could argue anywhere between 6'0-6'0.5 for a peak Arnold,imo. And maybe closer to 6'1.5-2 with big shoes or boots.
