How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

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

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

Arnold claimed that he could bench 520 pounds and deadlift 710 pounds. Heavy lifting accelerated his height loss. Stay safe kids.

Go to around 9 minutes of the above youtube link, Arnold mentions his maximum weight lifts there.

To me in those clips he looks slightly smaller than david so about 6'1

Quick height reference
6'0= 182.9cm
6'1= 185.4cm
6'2= 187.9cm

Arnold is still considered "6 foot" range.
Doug Quaid says on 26/Jul/15
My dad used to be mates with a guy called Tony who in the sixties was a bodybuilder and knew Arnie, he always maintained Arnold was a short arse and no taller than five foot eight. Just something I've noticed in The Terminator is when he utters his famous "I'll be back" in the police station, Arnie is clearly in the foreground to make himself look bigger and the cop on the desk further away from the camera, but they're meant to be standing face to face. I think they've been doing tricks his whole career to make him look a tall bloke but actually he's average height at best . The Lewis Hamilton thing finally cleared that up imo

I guess he forgot his high heels again. To me he dosnt look under 181-181.5 in That pic
Harold says on 25/Jul/15
There's a clip out on the internet now of a 1974 American made-for-tv CBS movie called "Happy Anniversary and Goodbye." It stars Lucille Ball and Art Carney. At one point, Arnie walks into Lucy's home. Arnie playing "Rico," an Italian Masseure, who comes to the house of Lucille Ball to give her a massage. When Arnie walks through the door we see his footwear and we see Lucy's footwear. Lucy was, peak five six and one-half or five seven (billed height). Arnie is no more than three inches taller than her. Meaning around five foot ten. That is peak for him in his late 20's. Dream on, Fanboys.

Schwarzenegger with 6'1.5" David Letterman in 1986. Arnold clearly appears slightly taller and has proportionately bigger limbs and bones. Arnold must have been around 6'1.75" near his peak height in 1986.

Here's the Letterman appearance I was referring to (1991)

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

Definitely, looks about 2 inches taller than 6'1.5" David Letterman. Most likely Arnold had a footwear advantage. In the early 90s, Arnold had lost a bit of height, but was a strong 6'1" (as his pictures from that era show).

In this video Arnold is definitely taller than Letterman. Unless he's wearing crazy heels, which I'm not buying. Arnold's Torso nowadays looks very compressed, especially compared to his bodybuilding days. His body is aging poorly in terms of height loss I guess.
Rey says on 23/Jul/15
Sean says on 17/Jul/15 ...in response ..Letterman always wears flat Italian made shoes...the heal must be 1/4 inch at best..as compared to Arnold's armored tank boots! The angle of this shot is curious, too.

Looking at ex2 France première were Arnie has 1cm more shoes than evry body else he looks 5'11 flat wish means 5'10.5 with 6'3 lundgren
Harold says on 21/Jul/15
Daniel, as to the photo with the 6'1" duo of Courtney and Clark, and the diminutive Arnie beside them, what makes you think Arnie isn't already boosted with high heels? Maybe that's the best he can do? It's possible that without the boost, he'd be even shorter by comparison.
Casual Observer says on 21/Jul/15
I saw him standing next to James Corden who is 5'8", and Arnie could not have been more than 1-1 1/2 inches taller.

With Jason and Jai he looks still over 5'11.
Alex says on 18/Jul/15
Ger what the hell are you saying? They are standing nose to nose, arnold is barefoot and jeff is wearing shoes. Jeff looks 1/2 cm. (not inches) taller than him, this confirms bridges height around 188 (6'2) and arnold's one around 187.

Liftboy says on 16/Jul/15
@miko

Sly has no lifts, no proper heal either. If you notice the sole of his shoe is @ floor level. Arnie on the other hand is definitely has lifts and his shoe has a lifted soles. Eventhough it looks like there is 4 - 5 cms between them in that picture, if you remove their shoes from the equation, the difference can't be more than 2 cms. That puts arnie in 5'9-10" range.
monkeyman says on 14/Jul/15
With the Jai courtney pics i found on google Arnold looks spot on 182 cm just as rob pegged him. arnold looks 2 cm shorter but he has cowboy boots on. Rob is a height genious.
Ger says on 14/Jul/15
Look at him in the film Stay Hungry, with Jeff Bridges. He and Bridges stand side by side lifting weights in front of a mirror, and Bridges is a good four inches taller. He's also 6/1!

Harold says on 12/Jul/15
In other words, Junior31, when you say, "And these guys exemplify the meaning of height loss time and time again," I would amend that to, "And these guys exemplify the meaning of lying time and time again." But they are in a tough position: they work in the illusion industry. If Arnold actually admitted he was five ten or so, wouldn't that put his 'peak height' into question? And given he built his career off his (supposedly accurate) physical resume, wouldn't that put his entire brand into question? And his entire life has been about promoting his brand.


Again your missing the point. Regardless of lying or not the argument is saying 2-3 inches of height loss is 2-3 inches of height loss. Despite the peak.

Who cares what they say? These celebs can say what ever they want "yes ism 6'5". It's the people that see them that say whether it's accurate or not so despite if Arnold or any celebrity lies about there height it's what the people who have seen or been around him say. Leave the personal preference of the celeb alone. Has 0 bearing on the height. And in the case of Arnold most ppl those who like the guy and don't see him at 6'1 and change peak and weak 5'11 today based upon comparisons to other ppl and celebs and evidence period end of Story

The psychology needs to stop. How tall do you think he is dude based upon comparison and people's evidence. That's it leave the Freudian ideologies alone.
Alucard says on 13/Jul/15
I absolutely agree with Harold, as i said times ago, around 5'11 peak for Arnold, today barely 5'10... There's no way to lose 3 inches or more naturally without some serious bones problem or surgeries... Do not agree about Oliva (who was around 5'7-5'8 by the way) being so much better than Arnold though... Both were genetic freaks, Oliva had one of the very best structure ever, second only to Paul Dillett, very complete with every muscle super full and long insertions... But Arnold had things going, was taller and super wide too, could present himself much better and was always much better conditioned, cut and dry... Oliva was always watery, Arnold in 1974 is as good as the best Myth of 1972 and 1973... No doubt that Arnold was Weider's boy, but he was that good still... Both two of the very best bodybuilders of all time, far superior than today's bloated jokes...
JM says on 13/Jul/15
Met Arnold at an event in London last November. He was a solid 6 foot, but his posture does him no favours. He sits, and stands, quite slouchy. I'd imagine this was the case in his younger years too, when he could well have been close to - if never quite - 6'2.

Junior31, where I disagree with you is in supposed height loss coming, again and again, specifically from the pro wrestling and pro bodybuilding industries. Both of these industries are notorious for LYING about billed heights. Or, put another way, both pro wrestling (a farce compared to amateur wrestling) and pro bodybuilding have shown a gigantic discrepancy between billed heights and actual heights. The NFL ,despite the lifting and the steroids, has not shown this. Neither has Olympic Lifting. Take your example of Brian Bosworth: agreed, he's a shadow of his former self, but he's not a four inches shorter shadow of his former self.
jervis says on 11/Jul/15
6ft1 Bridges was about 1.5inches taller than h.im in stay hungery.Arnold was bear foot so lets say Bridges had .5 of an inch on Arnold,makeing him 6ft.5 peak.That would mean he has lost 1inch from peak thats normal.With a good lift he can look 6ft3 in shoes and seem 6ft2 .bearfoot

Junior31, agreed that Arnie's ego is six foot five, but without ego the world would never know his name. I disagree when you bunch NFL ex-players with pro-wrestlers. The NFL is a sport. "Pro" wrestling is not. It's an exhibition, meaning not a sport but a spectacle. Agreed that the toll on the body in both cases is tremendous, but disagree about height 'shrinkage.' The main difference being the NFL heights are somewhat accurate while the billed wrestling heights are beyond fake in terms of accuracy. "Pro" bodybuilding is, in my opinion, the only other spectacle with as fake billed heights as "Pro" wrestling. To those who claim heights for bodybuilders because that's what the "documentary" Pumping Iron states, know that in the bodybuilding world, Pumping Iron is known as Pimping Iron. It was scripted (thus making it a fake documentary with the intention of simply merchandizing muscles. Thus we have a 90 minute 'documentary' that doesn't once mention the words 'anabolic steroids' or explain the existence of Sergio Oliva, who was five times the bodybuilder Schwarzenegger was, but who couldn't promote bodybuilding 1/5th as well. Long story short (literally): Schwarzenegger, peak height, five foot eleven. Schwarzenegger today struggles with five foot ten. Take away the cowboy boots and the lifts therein and, well, where did he go?

Yes I'm not talking about what there billed at 2 inches is 2 inches so whether they were billed at 6'5 but are now 6'3. Or legitamely 6'3 and now stand 6'1 height loss is height loss. And these guys exemplify the meaning of height loss time and time again.
Harold says on 11/Jul/15
Fran77, on two or three different occasions, Weider juggled the jury on the night before the contest to ensure the man in whom he made the financial investment would win. Weider had a financial interest in stacking the deck. Oliva retired in his mid 20's rather than deal with Weider and his shenanigans. Oliva had it all - except for one crucial component: he couldn't sell bodybuilding. As for Arnold, as Robby Robinson once said to him: "Keep flexing your biceps and pecs and no one will notice your legs..." (Oliva's structure (wide shoulders, narrow hips) blew Arnold's away. As for Frank Zane, his style of lifting was much less destructive to his body than most, which is why he's not the guy who has had open-heart surgery, shoulder surgery, knee surgery, and hip-replacement surgery (twice). That would be Arnold, the epitome of 'health and fitness.' Pause for raucous laughter. Did Arnold ever actually believe he was six foot two? Quite possibly he did, as he recently said he'd do a much better job of President than Obama. This from the guy with the lowest approval ratings upon leaving office in California Gubernatorial state history. It's as amusing as Arnold's constant references to his 'business degree' from a college with a 90% acceptance rate that gave him academic credit for 'life experience.' And the fraud plays on... But it's not just Arnold, it's the entertainment industry, that pads the stats for entertainment purposes. If Arnold had ever been six feet two, the media would have told us he was six foot five (wait, that's exactly what they did with Lou Ferrigno). There's footage of Herschel Walker running into the running back, Marcus Dupree, in the locker room after the game and they talk personal height stats and Walker had to tell Dupree that the media always makes them out to be taller and bigger and stronger than they actually are because, well, it's show business, not accuracy business.

@NCL,to be more precise,Jai is 6'0.75 on this site.
So,this really doesn't look too good for Arnold. 5'11 flat is possible only if his boots give him only 1in in height,which I doubt.
Fran77 says on 11/Jul/15
Harold, agree with you about peak height UNDER 6FEET. I could buy 6.00 morning height with perfect posture (1.83cm) but I think he was 181-182 max for the rest of the day. But saying Oliva was five times the bodybuilder he was... in his prime, 1971, NOT 1974, it could go either way between him and Oliva. Check in youtube 1971 Mr Olympia Footage. Check 1:06 - 1:12; 245 pounds with 5.11´5. It´s almost fifty year ago, he was a monster. You´re talking about Arnold as he was like Frank Zane
avillax says on 11/Jul/15
Check this clip, pause at 0:54, Bridges looks 1/2" taller than Arnold but he's wearing shoes and has a bit more hair volume so I would say they're even, I say they're both 6'2. Arnold was not shorter than 6' 1.5" peak height, no way.
NCL says on 10/Jul/15
Just saw the new Terminator - Jai Courtney, who played Reese, was barefoot in a few scenes with Arnold in boots. He looked about 1" than Arnold (again when he was barefoot and Arnold was in boots). I M D B has Jai as 6'1". I think that would put Arnold around 5'10"-5'11" depending on how much height the boots gave him.

Keep in mind I just saw it and was in the front row so take this with a grain of salt. It'll be easier to tell when it's on DVD.

Few other quick notes: there's a scene where Arnold and Jai are in front of height charts. It had them I think at 75" and 77" respectively which was pretty ridiculous :-)

Well, Junior31, a fellow bodybuilder claims to have once measured him forty-five years ago. That's called cronyism, not accuracy. As for Arnie losing, what, five inches, from 'age' or 'steroids' or 'weightlifting,' if that were the case, every single player in the doped-up NFL in the 70's and 80's would be walking around half a foot shorter today. No, Arnie was simply never six foot two to begin with. It was simply a way to push his career since no one wants a five foot nothing bodybuilder or action star and the world very much wants a six foot something actor. Arnold simply filled the need. The actual truth was irrelevant. As to the 1991 Letterman appearance, I haven't seen it but I'll try to track it down. Until then, one can only ask, as always with Arnold, footwear?


Disagree. Take a look at e state of 60 and 70 year old football players and pro wrestlers. Many of which did the same things Arnold did many of eich had serious surgeries as Arnold and you will see what I'm saying. hulk hogan. Paul orndorf, roddy piper, Larry zonka, Brian bosworth. All shells of the physical specimens they once were. At 70 humans shrink. At 70 professional athletes shrink more. Throw in some posture altering major surgeries (hip replacements' spinal surgeries) and wala....Arnold Schwarzenegger folks

His height today might be 2+ inches from his peak but his ego is 6'5
NBAer says on 9/Jul/15
184-185 PEAK days of bodybuilding and early acting career(any guy at this range with a decent built and ripped can get away with 188 to most people)
179-180 as a nearing 70-year old man,although sometimes looks barely even 177 due to bad posture or low camera angles in photos(which is why people in here downgrade celebrities,based on photos against the celebrity- i mean Taylor Swift at 5'6??!Ok she's definitely not 180 or 178,but anything less than 175 is illogical)

People below are blaming weight lifting or even cigars for his loss of height. It's age plus steroids. Steroids cause a loss of bone density and loss of height, and he's now approaching 70. People who think he was never tall, look up his 1991 Letterman appearance, he stands eye-to-eye with 6'1.5" Letterman.

Letterman used to be 6'2".
C.I.A. says on 9/Jul/15
I'd say he was *just* north of 6ft 0in at his peak...perhaps 6ft 0.25i n...maybe 6ft 0.5in....and he's lost about an inch since then so a current 5ft 11.5in is about right

No way am I buying the 6ft 1.5in peak number
184.3cm (Night) says on 9/Jul/15
It seems to be some people have some kind of obsession here with getting Arnie downgraded. The fact is many men are jealous of him, celeb's too. Sorbo, Vin Diesel, Sly during the 80's.

I will never forget reading an article about a young guy breaking into acting called Vin Diesel, who attacked Arnie for his accent, claimed his physique was superior (lol) and how he would be so much better blah blah blah. When you feel the need to put others down it says a lot about what kind of man you are.

And what he didnt realise was that he was just one clown in a long line, insulting Arnie claiming he would take the crown. Man is a true legend and inspiration to millions and maybe he was fudging his height with an inch or so, however looking at him now as he nears 70 years old its obvious to anyone capable of rational thought that he would have lost height.

So he can still look 180cm in his old age which has been proven time and again on this page , so is a 185-186 peak so crazy considering the beating his body has taken over the decades?

In the immortal words of Burt Reynolds, "All actors are six foot tall or over in their biographies. Mine says I'm six feet one but I'm only five eleven." Arnie fanboys take note: it's not necessarily a character flaw of the actor to lie, but an essential part of the entertainment industry to be larger/stronger/taller than you actually are. Comes with the Action Hero package.

Before being a famous action star even before being a famous body builder he was measured a strong 6'1. Truth is avg height ppl can get away with it but when someone is short or tall the claims become more obvious.

@Harold, Wouldn't people notice though? Or is that special "over 6 feet" claim so impressive-sounding to people that it doesn't matter whether you're 5ft6 or 6 feet tall, the fact you said it gives you a free bypass? Arnold was one of the guys that could claim over 6 feet, since he was at least 6ft1 in his prime if not the peak height he is listed.
Jim Hopper says on 5/Jul/15
Was only just over 6-0 prime years,now an 1" or more shorter hence the 5-11" height in truth. Shoe wise is any ones guess but like Sly,Diesel,Cruise they all do use the bump-me-up footwear. If you met them ever with no shoes on you might be shocked on a true height figure,but thats hollywood.
grizz says on 5/Jul/15
@Matt, I never knew there was an section for Arnold in Wikipedia especially for height. It's not like he lied a lot-he added an inch tops.
By that logic, Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel deserve sections for height more than Arnold- weak 6'3 Dwayne claims 6'5 while weak 6' Vin once even claimed 6'4!
richie says on 5/Jul/15
Arnie's peak height was definitely 6'2", watch Pumping Iron, Mike Katz who was 6'1" was slightly shorter than him and Arnie's close friend Ken Waller who was just 6' was 2 inches shorter than him. I don't know why people continue to dispute this ,the guy was certainly over 6' during his peak years no question, probably close to 6' these days but back in the day was on or around 6'2"

is possible that his vertebrae have shrunk to cause lifting excessive weights in its time of bodybuilder?

Even Arnie looked surprised: "I read on IMDB you were 5ft 7!"

Harold says on 4/Jul/15
Actually, by his own admission, Arnold hasn't lifted heavy since around 1974/1975, the latter year being his first retirement from bodybuilding. After his open-heart surgery, heavy lifting was clearly out and survival was in. As to his 'youthful appearance' just prior to politics, it's called plastic surgery, hair dye, and capped teeth (ROTFL). As to whether he'd 'still be' 6 ft tall, tough to be what he never was. Only his paid publicists still cling to the six foot plus fantasy.
Bill says on 3/Jul/15
Same height as me 185 cm, there is no way he is 182.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Jul/15
I think he stated dipping under 6ft about 2-3 years ago.
grizz says on 3/Jul/15
@Rob, what do you think- would Arnold still be 6ft tall had he not joined the dark force, I mean, politics?
[Editor Rob: he kept lifting heavy for many decades, it has to take a toll. Plus, his cigar habit might effect his body in ways some bodybuilders don't...]

Arnold seemed to be sub-6ft from 2005-in every photo with Bush Jr.(who's 5'11) Arnold never has a clear inch over him-sometimes 0.75,while sometimes as low as 0.5in.

I agree with you. Arnold's body dramatically transformed AFTER Terminator 3 was released in 2003. Up until that point, he still had his youthful looks. Upon taking office as governor he AGED fast (his hairline began receding, his upper torso compressed like an accordion, his skin changed, he lost whatever muscle tone he had). We've seen it with Bill Clinton who looks like a little frail 90 year old man today. The stress of being in office and then the divorce, couple with the years of heavy weight lifting and steroids aged and SHRUNK Arnold big time. He hasn't seen 6'0" in 12 years (2003) imo.

@lothar there's absolutely no way Arnie is or ever was 5'8. I think today he's probably still 6 foot. there's a photo of him with the hodgetwins (both around 6'2, though one is a bit taller than the other) and he holds up quite well
Click Here it's not the best photo to go by as the angle's a bit funny and you can't see what shoes they're wearing, but as a general reference i think it does ok
Dmeyer says on 28/Jun/15
Rob do you think Arnie today is a solid 181cm night like 181-181.2cm night and is 181.5cm/5'11.5 at 1pm
[Editor Rob: in a relaxed state, sometimes he can look barely 180, but measure him and I do think he will clear over the 5ft 11 mark. How much is the question!]
Markm says on 28/Jun/15
A lot of people have mentioned him next to George Bush Sr. I have a picture of myself next to George Bush senior in 1991. I was at my absolute best 6'1". I was the same height or even a little taller than him in the picture. I figure he was 6"1" at the time (probably was about 6"2" in his younger days.
josey wales says on 28/Jun/15
Must say estimations and opinions on arnold is pribably the most under or over estimated of any celebrity on this fun sight. Yes personally i am.pro Arnold fir various reasons. That asside, i dont think he was much above 6'1" at his peak or under 5 '11" today if strecthed fully. He can appear 5'10"ish at times due to bad posture. I think if you reckon he was much over 6'1" peak or reckons much under 5'11" today you probably have persoonal motives to try boost or degrade the man. On a pwrsonal note, what we think of the man is not important. But it is a fact that he reached all of his proffessional goals he set for hisself, however bad or good he was at it.
MJKoP says on 28/Jun/15
Nemo is about right with those figures. But I can't see him as less than 6'2" peak. I believe he woke up at at least 6'3" or a hair over and due to his immense mass, shrunk down to maybe 6'1.75" after a long, rigorous day of working out. That's right, since Vince Basille didn't like him very much, I believe he deprived Arnold of as much height as he could without it costing him his own credibility. 6'1.5" is the barest of bare minimums Arnold could've measure before bedtime during his prime years. I do have a strong hunch that Arnold came up as 6'2" on the stadiometer and Vince knocked a half inch off out of spite, just so he'd be technically correct about Arnold NOT measuring a legit 6'2" as he had claimed.

@Lothar

That story's either fake(like 95% of the other stories on here) or you're terrible at estimating heights. You seriously thought Arnold was only 5'9"?

On-topic: I'd say that Arnold is currently at least 181 cm, or at most 183.

If you go on various bodybuilding sites, that still treat Arnold like royalty, you'll find entire threads devoted to his billed height vs. his real height. As far back as the 1970's, paying customers who attended his 'bodybuilding seminars' estimated his height at five foot ten or eleven. Peak.
Harold says on 25/Jun/15
And I agree with you, Danimal, that Arnie is five eleven MAX today (and probably struggles to reach that), but I disagree with you that he was ever six one. The IFBB program is no different than Jim McMahon's wrestling program. These are 'facts' for fools designed to put fans in the stands. They are in show business, not the accuracy business. But then again, the fans of wrestling and bodybuilding seek entertainment, not truth.

@Nick,the reason why I don't seem him anything over 6'1 at peak is his photo with Bush Sr.-a legit,strong 6'2 guy that clearly had an inch over Arnold.

Arnold seemed to be sub-6ft from 2005-in every photo with Bush Jr.(who's 5'11) Arnold never has a clear inch over him-sometimes 0.75,while sometimes as low as 0.5in.
IMO,for Arnold :
1965-1990 -6'1
1990-1995 -6'0.75
grizz says on 24/Jun/15
@Nick, Carl Weathers and Arnold looked about the same in Predator. Perhaps Arnie slighlty edged him out by wearing military boots.
And I agree that his weight-to-waist ratio is impossible for sub6ft guy.
He was 6ft1 peak height,maybe even 6ft1.25, but nothing above that mark.
Harold says on 24/Jun/15
I think it's really tough to tell Arnie's current height. Given the frequent boost of his footwear (fifty pairs of cowboy boots, he admitted to owning in a recent interview?), it's true conjecture. As to his peak height, we'll never know. The word of another bodybuilder from 40 years ago doesn't exactly qualify as the gold standard of veracity. As for Arnold's own word, "He's an actor. If it's any consolation, he really means it when he says it!" to paraphrase the movie, Sideways.

This is YouTube sensation Lloyd Ahlquist with Schwarzenegger at a very recent photo-op event. Lloyd is listed on Google as 5'6" and, in comparison, Arnold looks taller than Lloyd's 6'0" listed business partner Peter Alexis Shukoff. I doubt Peter is lying about his height, as he clearly is NOT a short dude, and Arnold appears to have more height on Lloyd than Peter does. Maybe if I'm feeling motivated later I'll create and upload a composite picture complete with a horizontal line going from head to head.

If Arnold's own estimation of his height is used as 'evidence' of his height, then that calls into question his ability to discern fact from fiction. If, over a lifetime, he has shown an ability to, shall we say, 'gild the lily,' then that consistency when it comes to playing make-believe for a living is hardly a basis on which to set the bar when it comes to the veracity of his height. No one is saying Arnold is five foot six. But an awful lot of people have seen enough photos to believe he could not have had a straight face when he declared himself 'six foot two.'

At the last Country Music Awards, Schwarzenegger showed up (in his high heels of cowboy boots, of course) and was photographed with National Football League players, JJ Watt and Brian Cushing. Schwarzenegger looks like a midget between Watt and Cushing (who are six foot five and six foot three, respectively). Five ten for Arnie would be a stretch. Come on, guys, you've been had. But you've got to give the 'action hero' credit: he blatantly lied and fooled the world for forty years. What talent.

No one has been had. It's a fact that the man has lost A LOT of height for a man in his late 60's. I believe minimum 3" since his prime.

A statement like that shows how credible your statement is.

This is a picture of both Sergio Oliva and Arnold side by side from the 1972 Mr. Olympia. If that looks like 2 inches to you then you need to get your eyes checked.

Besides, Oliva was not 5'9". The lowest he has been given, is 5'10". Although, there were reports of him as high as 5'10.5".

Arnold was famous for trying to dominate Sergio Oliva with his towering height. You clearly know nothing about 70s bodybuilding.

Ian C, as James Cameron said 30 years ago, "Arnold isn't an actor, he's a special effect.' One can't expect competence from Arnie, only comedy. Which is why six foot two has always been a joke. As for his self-proclaimed athleticism, uh, he was a bodybuilder. Mucho anabolic steroids, nada physical talent.

I just saw a few minutes of Arnold in the movie Commando, and I was struck by how slow and clumsy he was. This man couldn't have run a hundred yards in under two days. He would have had to have hired a stuntman to dance at his wedding. And yet, because he looks athletic, nobody seems to notice what a klutz he was.

Also, he is the only movie star I can think of who really couldn't act. Elvis Presley and Clint Eastwood and Marilyn Monroe were all better actors then Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Rob what do you think is Arnold´s heigh here dancing with Sly? Sly looks pretty much the same height here, though I know he is naturally shorter. But back in 1992 there is another video of them standing on a stage and Sly wasn´t much shorter than him, wearing ordinary business shoes.

Nick has a valid point. If Arnold was 6ft or less peak, there's no way he'd be so lean and diced up at 250lbs. He had to be closer to 6ft2 in order to go onstage with a 32in waist while carrying that weight.

Here are "Predator" pictures of 6'1" Carl Weathers with Arnold. Arnold was slightly taller than Carl Weathers in "Predator". With Carl Weathers consist with how Arnold (as the pictures below) looked a strong 6'2" next to Jesse Ventura, he looked 6'2" next to Carl Weathers as well.

Arnold was 6'1.5" - 6'1.75" peak and shrunk down to around 5'11.5". Sometimes I get a sneaking suspicion he is now a flat 5'11" with all of the surgeries he has had due to the skiing accidents and the hip replacement surgeries, but he still appears to be in the 5'11.5" range.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's competition measurements from 1968 Mr. Universe measurement log. Arnold was 21 years old at that time. This is before he moved to the US and was still living in Munich, Germany where he ran a gym.

Common sense tells you, only a tall man could weigh 254 pounds and at the same time have only a very lean 32 inch waist. I have training the gym for many years and weigh 185 pounds at 5'11" and have only 12% body fat. I even have a 33 inch waist. Most of today's short bodybuilders who are 5'8" or 5'9" and weigh 250 pounds have 38 - 39 inch waists.

Arnold always modestly says he used to weigh 240 - 245 pounds in competition in interviews. However, in fact he had weighed over 250 pounds for several competitions including the 1971 Mr Olympia when he weighed in at 251.8 lbs, but Arnold modestly says "240 - 245 pounds" since that is how much he weighed later in the 1973 - 1975 Mr Olympia when he focused more on proportions, conditioning and definition with less emphasis on size.

Remember, as per the rules, all of the competitors back in the day were measured. This log was created once all of the competitors were measured.

I've been watching some Arnold movies from the 80's and 90's, and even in those he didn't look all that tall. Tall, sure, but definitely not 6'2" range. I would guess he was maybe 6'0.5" in the 90's. 5'11" or so today.

Lets assume bridges was a bit taller than him even if both were in footwear (arnold was barefoot in that clip): still we have birdges at 188/187 cm and arnold at 186/187.

When Arnold says, "I'm 6'2". People look up to me...I mean, most people really LOOK UP to me," he must have been 1. confused about the conversion of metric to feet and inches, and 2. referring to Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman as 'most people.'
Harold says on 12/Jun/15
Danimal, an ex-bodybuilder no one has ever heard of who refers to Arnold as his 'hero' claims to have measured him 50 something years ago. When you say,'He was measured at 6.15" barefoot at night," you don't actually know that, so it's absurd to speak of it as a fact. It is conjecture. It is hearsay. To state it as a fact is absurd.
T.N.T. says on 12/Jun/15
Arnie as tall as 1,82m? Not really. Just google some photos of him standing in front of the circa 1,80m-1,82m tall Kristianna Loken (and she's wearing either flats or very low discreet heels) for some camera angle height advantage. Even with this ploy, she still towers over him. Here we go again with the bogus height claims.. Remedy? Just put all these tall wannabes right next to the truly tall women and men. Simple as that.

Great shot, fedoratippincucksucker. No wonder, 20 years after the fact, Arnie bought the prints from Pumping Iron to control the image. Media manipulation at its finest. I know it's hard to grasp this simple fact, fanboys, but tall for a bodybuilder does not mean tall for a non-bodybuilder. Arnold was tall for a bodybuilder. Meaning he was over five foot nine or ten. But not by much.
In retrospect, he should have donned his high-heel cowboy boots with his bathing suit. He then would have actually been taller than the woman next to him.

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

Quite possibly the silliest post I have ever read. You clearly are a hater or someone in denial. You use deceptive camera angles and a barefoot Arnold standing next to Jeff Bridges as evidence that Arnold was short?

Arnold was known everywhere to be the tallest bodybuilder other than Lou Ferrigno in the 70s.

All of these have been discussed to death and proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Even Reg Park in an interview said Arnold was a "hair" taller than Park and about 10 lbs heavier when compared in peak form.

Arnold was not shorter than Dave Draper. He was taller than Dave Draper by at least 2.5 - 3 inches

Here is a picture of Dave Draper standing closer to the camera, yet Arnold is at least 2.5 inches taller than Draper. Arnold is at a camera disadvantage, yet still taller

The lines show how Arnold's legs and head reach is the highest

In this picture, Dave Draper and Reg Park are standing side by side. Arnold is taller than both of them when head level is compared (even though Reg has the posture advantage with his chin-up attitude). Arnold is by far the tallest in the group

Arnold and 6'1.5" Jeff Brdges were identical in height when both were wearing gym shoes. Arnold was barefoot in many scenes next to Bridges in gym shoes so obviously he would be slightly shorter in those scenes.

Barefoot Arnold in this scene in only posing trunks next to Jeff Bridges in gym shoes was barely 0.5 - 0.5 inches shorter than Bridges. If both were weaing gym shoes, Arnold would be identical in hight

All in all, if there are camera angles or footwear disadvantages involved, haters can of course use it as evidence to prove Arnold shorter, but when the camera and footwear disadvantages are taken out, Arnold indeed was the tallest bodybuilder of the 70s next to Lou Ferrigno.

Furthermore, he was identical in height as Jeff Bridges when both were wearing similar shoes.

now 180-182cm ,as he was shorter than jimmy fallon in his show

184.3cm (Night) says on 11/Jun/15
Its good to see there are now some others bringing up his 186cm claim back when filming The Running man, also that 185cm measurement by Guiness. I think he was just a 6 ft 1 guy at peak, maybe he could drop to 6'0.75" at worst but 185-186 is what he was before he got the Hollywood Treatment.

Nowadays he can look around 180cm so maybe he lost 5-6cm, a couple of inches at his age and with his background isnt that far fetched but the 6'2 crowd need to stop. The man was never 6 foot 2.
DougQuaidHauser says on 11/Jun/15
No chance he was ever the 6ft2 billed but have every confidence that he was 6ft1 in his younger days.
At nearly 70 years of age I would guess he is around the 5ft11 mark absolute minimum after losing an inch or so.

As opposed to those silly pictures in which a barefoot Arnold preparing backstage for the pose-off is compared to 6'1.5" Jeff Bridges with gym shoes on for "Stay Hungry", in this particular scene both Arnold and Jeff Bridges were wearing gym shoes (very similar type) and both were identical in height. Both are stretching with identical posture doing tricep extension excercise so it eliminates any posture advantages/disadvantages

Alex, I'm glad in this great big cold world you've found someone who completes you. For you, Arnold is 'the one.' But I will say, when you are in love, her (or in your case, his) acne scars look like dimples. He's been dying his hair since the 1980's. He turned gray early. Watch Commando again and you'll see the wig get readjusted during filming. Eventually, he turned to hair plugs. No biggie. And not to fret: it's the norm in his industry. As is padding your height by as many inches as your fans can credibly believe. Please don't compare a Mickey Mouse organization like the IFBB with the NBA. The IFBB was founded on dishonesty about steroids. The NBA was not. Know your history. The IFBB makes FIFA look lily white and clean by comparison. As to sports organizations not exaggerating heights, are you kidding me? Follow the money. If there is more money in it and it brings in more fans, sports organizations are more than happy to make King Kong out of Mickey Mouse. And as long as they financially profit of the fraud, the athletes are more than happy to comply. Example: Magic Johnson was never six foot nine in his life. But it worked as a marketing gimmick for the NBA to push both Magic and Larry Bird, the white and the black, the yin and the yang at the same height of six foot nine. Other examples, Hakeem Olajuwon was sold to the public by the NBA as a seven footer. He's not. Ditto Patrick Ewing. But why would the complain when they're getting well paid to be something they are not. Which brings us back to Arnold, you are too young, it seems, to know that Arnold was sold to the American public as a kind of Austro-Germanic superman. To get paid to play that role, he didn't just need muscles. He needed height. Well, he had muscles anyway. And compared to most bodybuilders, he really was tall. But really tall in bodybuilding means five ten or eleven. Lou Ferrigno, at a legit six two, peak, they had to market at six five. Exaggeration sells. But who cares. When you're in love, you're in love.

Harold I simply followed his movies, he is an action film hero for my generation. Furthermore he has the same age of my father and they started balding almost at the same time, so i know well the timeline of arnold's balding, since it is similar to my dad's one in which I'm very interested for obvious reasons. The difference between hair pieces, hair plugs and natural hair (even transplanted) can be easily spotted with some attention, if you lack knowledge about hair loss and everything connected with it, it is not my fault. You can easily see Arnold always had his own hair and still has even if less year after year starting from 2000. Probably he started dyeing his hair at some age..that's all. Your will to make arnold appear a midget and a bald man meke me suspicious about your feelings about him.

I don't know what else should I say about height bills in pro sports. I simply meant that only wrestling is such a fictional show where the federation and the atlethes clearly lie about height and weight becase it is all fake and exaggerated. BB is not about fake exaggeration just for the show, if an atlethe is 180 cm. they have no reason to say he is 185, and if they don't have a reason to lie about something then they would be just plain stupid to do so. Pro sports federations like NBA, UEFA, FIFA, IFBB etc. tend to be accurate about atlethes measurements. Furthermore almost all pro-sports athletes lie about steroids but still they have no reason to lie about their heights.

for arnold: real height peak is 185cm-186cm peak , guiness world of records list him 185cm and arnold himself claim 186cm in a french interview in the 80's he said i 'm 6ft2 which is 186cm as in austria centimeters are used not feet inches 6ft2 is a marketing statement for hollywood
the lowest i could believe for his peak height is 184cm ( strong 6ft)

Not sure what Arnold's hair has to do with his height, or lack therof (in both cases), but as Warren Zevon knew, only the Werewolf he saw drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's had 'perfect' hair. No estimation for the werewolf's height. But I'd imagine his front double biceps pose was estimable.
Not sure if Guinness got around to measuring that particular werewolf, but what makes you think they have a team/specific room for measuring? I do believe many fanboys who clapped their little hands while watching the werewolf pose in werewolf bodybuilding competitions were led to believe the werewolf was tall, based on the published programs they held in their tiny hands. The programs published by the same federation that sold you the bodybuilder. Which was the same federation that profited from the sales of the protein powder the bodybuilder held in the magazines because he 'owed his success' to the federations magical powders and pills. But then when it comes to bodybuilding competitions, a five foot five man and over is considered 'tall man's class.' No, I don't think Arnie (wait, I thought we were talking about werewolves?) was, peak, five foot five or six. He was at least a towering and majestic five foot ten, or maybe even, five eleven. And today, he can match that easily. With cowboy boots. And two inch heels. But not to worry, someday, if you keep shaving your legs and aspiring to grow breasts larger than your own mother, you'll look just like him (with the same plastic surgeon, that is). Now, imagine the difficulty the werewolf would have for shaving down for a physique competition???!!!!

Schwarzenegger vs 6'4" Peter Kent vs 6'2" James Cameron

Schwarzenegger in 1984 with his body and stunt double - 6'4" Peter Kent

Rob pegs him at 6'4" while he claimed 6'5". In this picture, Peter looks about 2 inches taller than Arnold (Arnold has twisted posture and he is farther away from the camera).

BTW, I saw Peter Kent's recent interview as he now lives in Vancouver, BC. He said he was picked by movie producers back in 1983 out of thousands who auditioned to be Arnold's body double because he was the closest match in all three aspects - height, weight/body structure and face structure.

He said, he was in a motorcycle accident and his face was injured as he broke bones in his face. As a result of the disfigurement, he started resembling Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He said most of the other's who auditioned could match Arnold in height/weight and body type, but did not have the similar face structure he had.

The nordic version of guiness world of records from the 80s says he were 185 cm tall. I read it myself long ago. I dont think they lie and they measured him! I am a huge fan and followed this page forever and seen all his movies, interviews, youtube clips and pictures and such and he never looks 6.2 188 cm on pictures together with other real 6.2 like james cameron, george bush sr and many others. Only a few pics he looks 6.2 out of thousands one of them is with bon jovi in the 90s, but he surely do look 3-4 cm shorter all the time so he i can guarantee that guiness world of records is accurate. Hell even with jims picture here who is 6.1.3 inches arnold looks 185 cm. Arnold were 185-186 cm, 186 cm morning heigt max and he rounded it up to 6.2 which he are in regular shoes. In some europeans countries they measure in shoes. Even arnold himself said he were 186 cm in an old interview. in the 2000s he surely were 183-184 cm with george bush and tony blair and now 182 cm-183 cm.
Harold says on 8/Jun/15
Alex, I'm afraid bodybuilding, like 'professional' wrestling, is also all about exaggeration, if not outright fiction. In other words, who measures the 'athletes'? The foundation that sponsors the contest? The same foundation that has a vested interest in lying to you about anabolic steroids and how 'vitamins' and 'amino growth packs,' which the federation just happens to sell at the contests to allow you to look just like the 'athletes'? The bodybuilding federation run by Joe Weider has been proven to lie by courts of law time and time again. They would lie to you (they still do) about steroids. As to the 'athletes' themselves (they still do). Do you then think they'd be honest about their height when there's more money when it comes to exaggerating their height and size.

Now, as to your charge that I have personal animosity against anyone famous, no, I certainly do not.

But I do have a problem with those who cynically manipulate the media in order to present a false image about themselves.

That includes the politician with 'family values who does not practice what he preaches.

That includes the celebrity who pretends he's four inches taller than he actually is.

One thing for sure: you seem to know an awful lot about Arnold's hair.

Are you his hair dresser?

Do you keep a booster seat on deck in case he has a sudden appointment?

"If you have Arnold play the role of Kyle Reese, you are going to need king kong to play the Terminator"

James Cameron telling what Michael Biehn thought of Arnold as Reese (who Rob puts at 5'11.75" and in his peak, could have been a solid 6') in an interview regarding the Terminator

Of course, Biehn was referring to how big Arnold was in Terminator 1 that Cameron would have needed a very big and tall actor to make an intimidating terminator next to Arnold.

p.s. Broken link in previous picture so here is picture of Michael Biehn, Arnold, James Cameron, Franco Columbu.

Arnold and 6'2" Cameron are clearly the two tallest guys in the group (despite Arnold lunging forward, his arms and legs look the longest in the picture). Arnold is wearing regular canvas shoes and shorts.

Click Here

Arnold in 1997 with George Clooney who Rob pegs at 5'10.75". Minimum anyone on the internet puts him at 5'10". Arnold has a solid 3" - 3.25" inches on Clooney. Arnold is wearing similar dress shoes as Clooney. That puts Arnold in 1997 (and 50 years old) at somewhere between 6'0.5" - 6'1.5" depending on what Clooney's real height is.

Arnold with George Clooney in 1997 promoting Batman and Robin. Rob pegs Clooney at 5'11.75" peak. The lowest I have read people pegging him at 5'10" at the lowest. Arnold has a strong 3 - 3.25 inches on George Clooney. Footwear is visible and Arnold is wearing similar dress shoes as Clooney is wearing

Click Here

Again, Arnold was a strong 6'1.5" at his prime. 5'11.75" now in shrunk format. His Guiness Book of World Records put him at 6'1" for his world record before Lee Haney broke his record. Guiness Book of World record has a strict policy to validate and confirm every single little stat they publish.

That is besides, all of the thousands of people who saw Arnold in the 70s on stage who put him anywhere between 6'1" - 6'2".

I mean, I am 5'11" and no one would ever believe, if I claimed I was 6'1". I look a strong 5'11" and weigh 185 lbs. It is ludicrous and kills common sense to believe such an enormous number of people swear by how tall and big Arnold used to be in the 70s.

Not to mention, he was measured barefoot at 6'1.5" by an honorable man - Vince Basilli back in the 60s.

Hmm, Rob, is it not time for a Bigfoot entry on Celebheights? Surely, he qualifies as a celebrity, however infrequent his movie/television/red carpet/mall opening appearances... Also, the Abominable Snowman (the Yeti) and, of course, Paddington Bear (peak, please). I do believe Bigfoot has sat down for an interview and a celebrity, 'with a straight face,' promoting their own height is the industry standard for actually taking the celebrity's word as gospel. In fact, Bigfoot, as far as I know, does not have a repeated history of getting ensnared by his own predilection for prevarication. Arnold, on the other hand...

Dear Harold, wrestling is all about fiction. The fighters pretend to fight, there are fake punches, fake K.O., even the characeters are fake since they are gimmick, it's just like a role they play. Spectators know they are going to see a fake show with a lot of action where giant people pretend to fight to death and they do it in a spectacular way. The point is that everybody knows the fights are false, unless you are homer simpson. Boxe insted is real, ok maybe some matches are fixed but the action in REAL. So it is basketball, so it is bodybuilding, the athletes are real and they compete to show who has developed the most muscular, armonic and simmetric body. The only fictional "sport" is wrestling, so it is normal they exaggerate and lie about everything, from height to weight, or do you really believe that the undertaker is a non-dead coming from hell or whatever!! Can't you see the difference, really? In other sports the measurements are serious because there is no fiction in the package. Ok sometimes maybe they are not that accurate but in wrestling heights and weights for the gimmicks are exaggerated by purpose.

Arnold never had hair plugs, do you know what they are and how they look like? Arnold always had his hair, he had different haircuts and different hair lenght throughout his whole life. He started receeding a little on the temples after 1999 more or less, and that was the first sign of male pattern baldness, which he had at a moderate grade at the beginning. You can notice visibile thinning and visibile receeding hairline only after 2004 or so, and this means in 1995 he had all his hair.

I really don't understand...it seems you hate so much arnold (or famous people in general?) you also want to make him bald. You don't seem to know what you are talking about...hairplugs, receeding hairlines, hair transplants, arnold never had hair problems until 1998.

You are even at the point of downgrading the height of everyone who was near barefoot arnold in the past just to make him appear shorter.

At this point I don't know if you're playing or you are serious.

NBAer says on 6/Jun/15
I think the most logical estimate for Arnold's peak height is 184cm evening,maybe 185 if measured midday,so really a strong 6-footer.Right now at his 60's,it wouldn't surprise me at all if he measured just 179-180cm evening,he looks it in alot of photos!And don't call me a hater,i'm just a fan who observes reality,that's all.

Harold says on 6/Jun/15
Well, Alex, where to begin?
"BB have no reason for exaggerating their height, like for example, wrestlers do."

Are you kidding?

Both bodybuilding and pro wrestling are not sports. They are spectacles. Both have EVERY reason to lie about the heights of their 'athletes.' That's what brings in the fans, for God's sake. The fans pay money to see extreme forms of the body. They pay top dollar for this.

As to BB, "their height/weight and body dimensions measurement must be pretty accurate because of the job they do."

Are you kidding?

Bodybuilders give measurements that are not accurate but what they can get away with, JUST LIKE PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING.

It's about show business, not truth business.

As to 'Arnold had perfect hairline until the year 200o0..."

Yes, they are called hair plugs, not perfect.

Your attribution that if someone downgrades Arnold's billed height because he is a 'hater' is, I believe, generally erroneous. Perhaps the downgraders simply care for accuracy and the truth and are less than thrilled by those who perpetuate a con.

One last thing: Jeff Bridges was never six foot two in this lifetime.

Neither was Arnold.

totigno: That clip you posted Click Here is the best proof I've seen of prime Arnolds height. Can't believe I've missed that movie.. So thanks for posting. Bridges and Englund have trainers on, but it's the type that don't give that much height. The only one out of the three I've met is Englund and he had a little heel on his boots when I met him. I had on pretty much the same type of shoe they are wearing in this clip. I'm 6'1 morning and 6' before bed and I felt there was at least the same height difference between me and Englund as there is between Englund and Bridges.. But Bridges is supposed to have been almost 2" taller than me?!?.. Weird. And take away Bridges shoes and he would still be taller than Arnold in the clip. Based on all this it's pretty safe to say that Arnold was max 6'0.5 - 6'1. Makes sense with Lou Ferrignos max 6'3 height. Feel like I'm gonna get flamed now, but the people saying max 6'3 prime lou and max 6'1 prime Arnold have a lot of good pics/proof that you just can't deny.

Arnold thread is the center of gravity for all haters, they all gather here.

In the youtube clip below you can see that barefoot arnold is about 2 cm. shorter than 6'2 bridges wearing shoes. So it is a proof he is about 6'1.5

The point that ALL other bodybuilders are shorter than their official height is pretty ridiculous, since BB have no reason for exaggerating their height, like for example wrestlers do. Their height/weight and body dimensions measurement must be pretty accurate beacause of the job they do

Arnold has shrunk a lot in the last two decades, you can see it just observing how short his torso is compared to his legs nowdays.

The pic with hasselhoff is post 2000 for sure, Arnold face is already aging and his hairline in the picture has receeded a little. Arnold had perfect hairline until the year 2000 more or less. It must be from 2005

I jave known athletescin any sport and everybody eould always claim a personal best far better than their competitive recorded best.

As the new Terminator movie is approaching, Arnie and Jai Courtney were just photographed with a Harley Fat Boy motorcycle in front of the Sydney Opera House. They stand side by side. Jai, listed on Celebheights at six feet and 3/4's of an inch, has Arnold by two or three inches. Jai is not wearing cowboy boots. Arnold is. Six foot two? Only in Fanboy Fantasy Land. Turn off your Conan nightlight. Take off your Terminator sunglasses. Put a fork in the brother: he's done.

"The fact that he passed himself off as six foot two with a straight face shows just how gullible his audience was and is."

Nail. Hit. On. Head :)

Arnie inflates everything about himself. Always has. Every single BBuilder is a bona-fida narcissist, otherwise you just don't put that kind of effort into your body.

And there isn't a single narcissistic guy who doesn't inflate his height

Schwarzenegger with 6'4" David Hasselhoff back in circa 1992.

Granted, Hasselhoff is hunching a bit, Arnold looks easily around 6'1" - 6'1.5" next to a legit 6'4" Hasselhoff

And we are not seeing footwear. Elevators or otherwise. Where are the trusty cowboy boots when you need them!
Nick says on 3/Jun/15
hat's because he WASN'T. Not then. Not now. Not ever. The fact that he passed himself off as six foot two with a straight face shows just how gullible his audience was and is.

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

Simply because he used to be a legit tall man and it has nothing to do with being "gullible". It is the factual evidence. He might not have been a full 6'2", but he was measured by an honorable man who was not Arnold's friend in the gym barefoot and he came out to be 6'1.5" at the age of 20.

Recently, on stage with Franco Columbu, when Arnold (as usual) made fun of Franco Columbu's height, Franco fired back at Arnold saying "at least I have not shrunk like some people have" and then he looked at Arnold. Even Franco realizes how much Arnold has shrunk.

Everyone who saw him in the gym (Frank Zane, Dave Draper, Franco Columbu) recalls him to be legitimately the tallest man there

He used to look every bit over 6' barefoot in all his 60s and 70s pictures during his competitive sports days.

He used to be everywhere barefoot and used to be on-stage barefoot next to average height and above average height body builders (ranging from 5'1" to 5'11") and he used to completely dwarf him like small kids.

Again, it is all of the factual evidence way before he ever set foot in Hollywood that proves he used to be over 6'1".

I stood face to face with him when he was filming Junior on our campus in '93. I was exactly 6 feet tall barefoot, and at best he was my height. Unless anabolic steroids have some height-boosting properties I'm unaware of, there's no way he was 6'1.5" in his prime.

Jason: Cormier in his 'heels' (check 0:41) is the same height as "listed" 5'10 Kenny Florian. Click Here s a 5'9 Cormier would not surprise me. Bas is the exact same height as actor Cam Gigandet(anybody have his real height?) when they were training barefoot. I would guess somewhere between 5'11 and 6'. Also.. was watching 'last stand' last night and Knoxville seemed a bit taller than Arnold in that movie.

Look at the recent video of Arnold congratulating MMA light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier on his impressive win the other night to capture the title. Specifically, I question not only Arnold's height but that of Daniel Cormier, who is usually listed at 5'11' (sometimes 5'10") but who never appears that tall. In the video, a barefoot Cormier appears several inches shorter than Arnie (who is wearing shoes); but the difference is like 4 inches at least (maybe 5).....If Arnold is now 6-foot tall, Cormier would be 5'9" at best.......

In relation to steroids. It does not cause side effects for everyone. BUT the day you take a shot you shut down your own feedback mechanism (ie your hormones) This is then restarted when you do a recovery phase using fertility drugs. HOWEVER in some men they dont fully correct this and so after 3-4 years of slow bone loss their bones start to compress. Its gradual and most doctors don't diagnose it correctly. Its easily fixed but correcting the height loss is nearly impossible at the moment. He definitely loss height due to this and its not uncommon. Using aromasin and any anti estrogen drug will stop the negative process. Then growth hormone and oxandrolone will rapidly rebuild the density of the bone over 18 months. Tried tested and very safe method.
UhOh says on 25/May/15
Ok, I'm going to use myself as an example for height loss, since my height is pretty close to Arnie's peak. My average morning height, with in 5 minutes is approximately 6'1.12" or 185.7cm. I have measured myself being fractionally taller out of bed, but in most cases not. My low if I have been on my feet all day is 6'.25" or 183.5cm. So my combined average is about 184.2cm or 6' .5" which is usually what I measure at the Dr. office (midday). If Arnie was 187 cm or 6' 1.5" out of bed, then by night his height would've been fractionally taller than mine, that's why I theories his average peak at 6' .75" because that is what would make sense. If this is true, then Arnie has lost about an inch and a half since his peak maximum morning height. His daughter said he measured 6' .5" out of bed about 10 years ago, naturally that would have put him at 5'11.5" lowest at night. So now, a decade later, probably lost another .5 inches and is at 6' out of bed, 5'11" evening. This is just my theory, not saying it is the cold hard truth. Who knows, he could secretly be 5'9" and be fooling us all.
josey wales says on 24/May/15
He has lost height but pobably no more than 2 inches. He was abt 6'1" in his prime and is down to 5'11" today. Yeah he used steroids but not to the extend alot of people think .Also his career was relatively short and the drugs used in the mid 70ies is a drop in the ocean they use
today. To diagnose arnold or anybody i think one needs more tjan knowledge on a given subject.
N says on 23/May/15
I'm 5'11" if I stand fully back achingly upright but I never walk around looking anymore than 5'10" or so. He probably did measure 6'1.5" but comparing him to Ferrigno and others in pumping iron he's probably 6'1" at the most.
jus says on 23/May/15
I met him a few weeks ago.my husband is 6 Ft 1.5 .He was a couple of inches taller than Arnie.

I don't think 187cm was ever his evening height. I may have been his MAX morning height. If you watch Rob's latest Video, he said his morning height can fluctuate nearly 1cm (1/3 inch). Arnies Max morning height "186-187" (6'1.3"-6'1.8") Max evening height years 1969-1999 something like "184.2-185". (6'.5" - 6'1")
mightyman says on 22/May/15
I've studied Endocrinology. Arnold Has definitely lost height due to bone compression. And if he keeps lifting weights he'll lose more. Normally caused by excess estrogen in the body which causes the bones to become sponge like due to calcium loss. Lifting weights normally makes your bones stronger, BUT when you have this hormone imbalance extreme height loss is the result if not corrected. So when you pick a weight your spinal bones compress down permanently. Even your legs can lose length due to the same process. Steroid abuse can cause this in some men as their estrogen levels become unbalanced and cause more bone to be lost than is reabsorbed. Look at earlier Arnold pics and later topless ones. His spine has definately shrunk alot. AND yes 4 inches is can easily be lost if not more.

He was clearly taller than average in his days, that's possibile only for 6'1+ people. We can talk about his height being 186-187 and doubt the billed 188, that's fine. Talking about 6'1 (185 cm.) is already stupid to me but maybe he was a strong 6'1 even if i think that would be understimating his height. Anything under 6'1 is just crazy thinking. I'm obviously talking about young arnold.

Wow, just saw the video of Arnie with GSP, this proves he can still pull off looking 6ft, those guys saying he's only 5ft10 nowadays need to be more realistic. Maybe just a hair under 6ft today, over 6ft1 peak.

Why don't you watch him next to 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon and then talk about realism.

think i posted my comment on the wrong page,yaspaa you took the words right out of my mouth,he did not look over 6 foot in the film twins next to danny devito(4'9/10) and kelly preston (5'5) and how can we explain a 4/5 inch height loss from 6'1/6'2 when he is looking 5'9ish today

Sorry but Arnie is not 5'11.5", he's still a good 6', watch the scenes with Johnny Knoxville who is close to 6'1" and they are roughly the same height. Schwarzenegger's peak height was definitely very close to 6'2", anything much less would be ridiculous. I don't know why people continue to doubt the actors height as it was plain to see in his movies that certainly during his peak years he was several inches above average, probably close to 6' now but certainly no less....

@6ftMagician

How can you say that GSP is barefoot if you can't see their feet?
Maybe, but for me GSP is not barefoot, in fact he has had time to wear a black shirt for the meeting with Arnie, which suggests that very probably he also wore shoes, just to simple logical deduction.
6ftMagician says on 16/May/15
@Lucio

GSP is barefoot in that Video, straight after a fight. It is probable Arnie is wearing dress shoes. On that note, 5'11'' range seems likely.

According to that picture Arnold cannot be anything over 180cm if GSP is a true legit 178cm. But here's the kicker, GSP is more a 5'9'' guy than 5'10'' (so much evidence of this, just ask).

It is difficult to refute evidence that strong if you approach the picture objectively and leave any personal bias behind.

The fighter wears nike shocks shoes or something similar, they usually add some centimetres more than common footwear. Still Arnold looks a bit taller, I think this a proof he is around 5'11 and a half!

I don't need any excuse. Lou is now around 191, there are pics of him with rob and jen. In his youth he was around 193. That makes Arnold 187 and maybe 186 at minimu. This is also clear from the pics of arnold barefoot with 6'2 bridges and 182/183 nubret. Also vince basile measurment confirms this.
To me Michael Cooper was taller than his listed 196, he is almost as tall as 203 rambis and near 206 billed (maybe overstimated) magic johnson.

20% between 186 and 187 cms
70% between 185 and 186 cms
10% between 184 and 185 cms
0% shorter or as tall as 184 cms

IMO he woke up at something very close to 6'2" and closed the day averagely at 185,5 cms, so he was a very strong 6'1" who could pass also for a 6'1.25" guy...

Yes, HeightcrazyRed6ft,you've hit the nail on the head: the bodybuilding 'federation' simply lied in their billing of their 'athletes' (really, athletes who can't run, jump, throw or catch?) in order to bring in fans. It isn't sport. It's spectacle. So the ex-bodybuilders and ex-wrestlers haven't miraculously 'shrunk,' they were simply never as tall as billed and went along with the lie in order to make a career out of exaggeration. Arnold at a peak height of six foot two is laughable. His current celebheight 'peak height' of six foot one and one-half is also laughable. Five eleven peak. Five ten today.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Still doesn´t make Lou 6´4". No need to make things up about Cooper, JT met him.
If Cooper is 196cm, Lou is still under 190cm in the vid, a little footwearadvantage just brings him back to 6´3" flat.
With 6´2" Manny Perry Lou looks also 6´3" both basicly barefoot, what´s your excuse there?


Lou was made up to be the tallest BB and they stretched it as far as they could, if he was 6´4-5" they would´ve billed him at 6´6"-6´7".

So a guy near 2 metres against a 193/194 guy can give that impression. Cooper also looks almost as tall as rambis who was billed at 203 (6'8)

Agreed,
I think chances are:

5% taller than 186cm
70% - 186cm
23% - 185cm
2% under 185cm
Alex says on 4/May/15
Many sites, including the official one, report ferrigno's height at 6'5, and I think he was at least a full 6'4 (194 cm) in his thirties. Barefoot Arnold was not so much shorter than him, and they were BAREFOOT on the BB stages! Furthermore we just saw in "stay hungry" clip that barefoot arnold is eye to eye (maybe 1-2 cm. lower) with 6'2 bridges wearing trainer shoes.
So there is really no way young arnold was shorter than 186-187.
Nowdays he has lost height and didn't aged nicely like ferrigno and sly, but he is still around the 6 feet mark, probably a weak 6 footer.

He was at least 5.11.5 prime (1967- seventies). maybe 6 feet at morning. 1.82cm. So I´m what some people would call a downgrader. I´m not discusing his actual height, but some people claim he has lost three inches, total bull****. He was almost 6 feet an at least 5.10 today (1.78), 6 feet with rodeo boots.

Arnold was a tall man in his prime. Around the 186 range give or take a cm.

Today he is still holding onto 6ft from the pictures I've seen with the Hodgetwins. But hey other times he looks a weak six footer.

Rob's listing is near enough perfect, but definitely some food for thought in Alex's pics.

Obviously you know I refer to that infamous magazine article, but beyond that, Cruise did look to be the exact same height as Glenn in their pic together and we all know how tall Glenn is/was. Additionally, I provided pics of just how much height Kevin Bacon had on Cruise in A Few Good Men (behind the scenes pics). I do agree with you on many listings Rob and always have, but you're off on a few big names (Stallone, Will Smith, Arnold, Cruise, Chris Jericho, and a few others).

Some comments are so absurd, like the one below. On a Letterman appearance he was eye to eye with Letterman. He was tall. He's lost a lot of height; probably because he's nearly 70 and steroids cause bone loss. As a young man he was at least 6'1".

Why on earth would it be assumed in the photo of Tom Cruise and Arnie that Cruise is wearing elevators (a good assumption) but that Arnie isn't? Both are, in fact, long-time "lifters," if I may use that word to describe the employement of boosters for height to impress the crowd. Arnie, who confesses to owning over 50 pairs of cowboy boots (the Imelda Marcos of his generation?) doesn't wear cowboy boots or motorcycle engineer boots to look shorter, does he? No. So, it's probable that it's lifts vs. lifts, elevator shoes vs. elevator shoes. Arnie wins, simply because he's already taller than Tom. On the other hand, Tom's bank account dwarfs Arnie's.

@Alex

Respectfully, everyone is entitled to their opinion at the end of the day.

As a regular poster, I'll share my 2 cents:

While I agree there is a large minority who are just beyond logic, the vast majority come across as bitter/rabid by accident. For example, If I think someone is exaggerating about height I will say it. Doesn't matter if it makes me look ''rabid'' - I don't try to balance out my ''boosts'' with my ''rabid'' guesses. I simply state my opinion, which unfortunately falls into the ''rabid'' category more often than not, because, wait for it... people (especially celebs) exaggerate/don't know their height.

Peace out chief.

Click Here -take away Toms poofy hair and you've got a strong 1 inch difference ( forehead and eye level also show 1 inch,maybe 1.25 at most). Pegg is 5'8.75, so Tom at 5'7'75 is the most he is,and if he was wearing small lifts,then a flat 5'7 is possible too.

Oh, he was definitely 6'2". Possibly even a bit over. I've seen 6'3" descriptions of him and he barely looked shorter than Christopher Reeve. Today he's still 6'0 or slightly taller. The 5'11" and under crap is just silly. He might stoop to 5'11" if he lives to be 90+, but in 2015 there is not a chance in hell. If you google "Arnold schwarzenegger and Christopher Reeve" you'll find a picture where they are face to face and Reeves towers him by 4 inches. 10 cm. The difference between 1.92 cm and 1.82 cm.

Alex, in Australia, if someone rises above the herd, the urge to cut him or her down to size is called 'the tall poppy syndrome.' It makes the rest of the poppies feel better about themselves if one is not above them. It's a common human motive. On the other hand, the entertainment industry, first in the form of movies, and in the last 70 years in the form of television, has profited by making their 'stars' out to be taller/bigger/more beautiful than they actually are. In other words, they will deny the actor/actress has had plastic surgery/nose job/breast enhancement/dyed hair/capped teeth or is taller than they really are, etc. Also, people have a need to worship, as the good book says, false idols, so they will make people taller/bigger to fill a need in their own life to worship someone/something. In other words, I agree it's all about human nature. But perhaps I disagree in that I believe the boosters are as rabid and irrational as the haters.

I said "so many people", not "everyone". I mean... just pick a random celebrity and see how many comments are about "1-2 inches shorter in real life". "I met him at (random event), he is 1-2 inches shorter than this claim". For ten rabid downgrade there is, more or less, one booster, not even rabid. I think it's all about human nature.
Harold says on 20/Apr/15
In response to Alex, not everyone on this site 'downgrades' celebrities. Is a celebrity really worth less if they are less tall than they maintain/pretend? I'd say for every rabid downgrader there is a rabid booster who can't bear to imagine their hero/idol/object of veneration and worship not to be their advertised height. One could argue both the rabid downgrader and the rabid booster operate out of emotion rather than reason. But what does reason have to do with an audience that applauds celebrities?

I watched the movie, the Last Stand, the other night on my computer and it's clear Arnie hovers around the five foot ten mark. I suggest "the Arnie Syndrome" not refer to 'magically' shrinking four inches in height as one ages (for God's sake, he's 67, not 87), but to refer to someone who, with the help of Joe Weider, lies about his height for fifty years and gets away with it until he finally confronts reality. But his fans never paid him for reality. They paid him for fantasy. And he was happy to oblige them. I enjoy how Arnie's fanboys insist if he was not, as he insisted he was, six foot two, he must have been six foot one and one-half. Mighty generous. But remember, the money is in the myth. No one wants reality.

I don't understand why so many people try to downgrade almost everyone on this site. Just pick a random celebrity and you see many comments of people who ask for a massive and illogical downgrade when celebheight's claim is already under the official claim (often rounded up) and is near perfection. I mean how the heck can young arnold's height be under 6'1? He was measured at 187, he is on par with 188 people barefoot, he is just slightly shorter than a giant like ferrigno. Furthermore how can you deny he has lost a lot of height in his torso that nowdays looks like compressed? I just don't get it..what is at the origin of this "downgrade everyone" spirit? For example look at jim parsons page..how can he be just a six footer?!

According to most users here, most celebs are shrinking at crazy rates! God I wish I never become a celebrity or I am destined to suffer Arnie Syndrome, where I will inevitably shrink a supposed 5cm.

Now we got that out the way, here is my actual reasoning: Arnie holds 6ft today. Rob's listing is on the slightly harsher side, I'd give 5'11.75 or 6'0''.

His peak, as indicated in BAREFOOT bodybuilding pics with Frank Zane (and others), indicate Arnie was give or take 186cm peak.

Which leads me to believe his shrinkage is nothing abnormal, though certainly on the more height-loss side of the aging spectrum.

Current: 182/183

Remember that these guys only lease muscles when using "Gear". If they trained naturally, at least what you gain, you can keep. I've been bodybuilding for over 20 and all I need to do is eat clean/train to maintain a weight that really hasn't changed in 17 years. How many bodybuilders lose 50 or 60 pounds once they stop? I'm not for or against but seeing competitors shrink like that tells the tale. I know a guy that lost a pound a day after stopping.

It is horrendous generally what happens to guys in their 60s. Most guys undergo some major aging changes in which they go from essentially middle age to old age. Harrison Ford is one of the few guys I can think of off the top of my head who managed to go through his 60s relatively unscathed aside from the height loss. Arnie compared to a lot of guys his age still looks pretty good I think.


I think you mean most guys in their mid 80s and beyond. Every guy I know in their 60s looks the same as when they were in their 50s and healthy. Its 2015, not 1950. My Uncle is 76 and has looked the same the last 20 years and feels the same. And his gnes arnt all that either.

And Harrison Ford looks old for his age. Will be hard to accept him in the new Star Wars.

Well, Arnie, you did a great, great job for so many years of, shall we say, stretching the truth about your height. Or, for that matter, your physical fitness. They really bought you were six foot two! For so many years! My God, what pigeons. All you had to do was tell people you were and wear your 'high heels'! It was so simple. And you were so smart not to tell them about your open heart surgery, your knee surgeries, your shoulder surgery and your twice going in for hip replacement. They never even knew!! Like Lou Ferrigno with his hip and knee replacement. Keep it on the qt! That way, you can pretend your life is about 'health and fitness'! I love it. America, what a great country. Where you only have to fake it to make it. Six two! Hah!!!!

First of all, 6'0" Justin Timberlake was taller than Jimmy Fallon and once again, Jimmy Fallon had noticeable height on Arnold both in video and in pictures. I hate to break it to you, but Arnold is NOT 5'11.25" today.

Arnie looks a good 6ft next to the Hodgetwins. Other youtubers have confirmed the Twins are both 6'3'' (Kevin) and 6'2'' (Keith - had spinal fusion surgery hence the inch loss at 40 yrs old).

He used to have a long neck too. Just look at the Terminator DVD/bluray cover for example and compare with recent pics of him.

Yup. It appears as though his entire spine (including neck) has compressed, resulting in a 3" height loss since his prime (yes, I believe he is under 5'11" barefoot today). If he had hip replacement, which I'm not sure he did, he could have lost some height from that as well.

"I'm 5 foot 9, but I wear very high heels for my roles that make me photograph as if I were 6-foot-3" :)
-----------------------------
I think the real problem here is that you have no sense. I'm making assumptions? If I'm making assumptions, they are based on undeniable facts like this
Click Here
which is something that everyone can see.Sarah Douglas says in an interview:
Interviewer #1 :"I notice you seem to be taller than him in this sequence"
Sarah Douglas : "It's funny you say that, because he's not taller than me in real life. And i've got high heels on so I'm amazed he allowed that to happen. I suppose his mere size was quite enough."
She shoots herself in the foot here. She says Arnold isn't taller than her in real life, which would mean barefoot against the wall height, but then says she's even wearing high heels there. If they were the same height on their drivers licenses, she would then tower over him wearing those giant high heels she speaks of. She doesn't, and is even a little under. It's not speculation or conjecture, she's 4 inches shorter in real life, which is what is seen in the photo. In the film she's wearing the high heels which gives her the comparative height. This isn't rocket science. If you don't get it, you have issues.

Your assumptions are based on nonsense, non-existent fantasy speculations. Can you prove Arnold has monster lifts in those "Conan" boots? You can't and never will. And yet that is what you're going with. You reject the photo that excellently presents itself, for the old magic invisible undetectable lifts argument. That's why I really think some of the posters here might have some schizoid spectrum mental issues. Inventing facts in their head that are entirely unknowable. It's not 100% out of question he doesn't have monster lifts there, but on it's own there is NOTHING at all that suggests it. His leg proportions look completely normal, and his knees are where they're supposed to be, looking similar in leg ratio to both Douglas and even Jones who's barefoot. If he was wearing the size of lifts that would make him that tall, his legs would look weird and strangely out of proportion. Monster 4 inch lifts are unconvincing alone let alone without long pants. And yet with blind faith you believe.

You're going on about how only barefoot counts, so therefore you're right. What? Where? In what way have you shown Arnold looking under 6' in a fair and balanced barefoot comparison? And that's without making up new heights for those he's compared too. He's 5'11"-5'10" peak, because you say so? Your post and indeed your whole position isn't based on anything but fantasy nonsense, and it's even off the bottom shelf lying on the floor.

Alex says on 5/Apr/15
My impression is that barefoot young arnold is between 6'1 and 6'2. Like jim parsons and cristiano ronaldo. Depending on things like posture, hours spent out of bed, shoes and angles, they can look 6'1 or 6'2. Sometimes CR7 looks as tall as 189 cm Khedira, sometimes he looks on par with 6'1 people (like kaka)
I think all the evidence say that young arnold was about 186-187 centimetres. Never a full 188 barefoot even in his prime, but just a little under.

Nowdays he has shrunk, he has some posture or back problems or I don't know what...his torso looks innatural, it is like compressed or shortened. Arnold was born with long legs and short torso, this is clear, but now his torso is just shorter. Actual height is a weak 6 feet, with bad posture.

I think Rob's claim of peak height at 6ft 1.5in, and current at 5ft 11.5in, is just perfect.

Again, anyone with intelligence can see and understand that Ms. Douglas is either flat out making up things, or she's mistaken. It's understandable that she may have been recounting memories when she was wearing giant stiletto high heels. In the photo above she's clearing considerably shorter than Arnold wearing a smaller shoe. Here's Rob's page
Click Here
Pay attention to an important quote of hers: "I'm 5 foot 9, but I wear very high heels for my roles that make me photograph as if I were 6-foot-3". If you don't get it it, read it again. She's at her self declared normal height in the above photo with Arnold at around 5'9"-5'9.5", because she IS NOT wearing those massive healed shoes. Arnold looks no less than 4 inches taller based on eye level, but probably a little more because men have higher foreheads. So it should be clear to everyone who doesn't have some denial based attitude that what she said is just plain wrong. Some people can say things and you might not be too sure, but in this case we have her clearly way shorter wearing normal shoes in photographs for all to see.

So we have both Sarah Douglas and Kevin Sorbo not telling the truth, at least in part, that may or may not be deliberate. Sorbo puts false words in Arnold's mouth, as Arnold has never said he was 6'3". Sarah Douglas has memory issues, or like many women, somehow equate their high heeled height as their actual height. Men's Health merely wrote on a scoop. It would appear they are based only on some peoples opinions, and possibly inspired by some trashy check-out tabloids from a while back. Do you believe everything that's ever put into print?

If you read exactly what Sorbo says, he declares Arnold "says he's Six Three". Arnold has NEVER said he's 6'3", nor has anyone else for that matter. Sorbo is obviously exaggerating, and that's not to be disputed as opinion. It's a fact he's putting false claims in Arnold's mouth. So who's to say his whole argument isn't just an exaggeration, if officially half of it already is? He played Hercules and the other Robert E Howard sword and sand character Krull. He's maybe being a little catty when it comes to his position in that genre. If he's made up one part of his argument, who's to say the other part isn't just a dismissive exaggeration.

Guy never shrunk 5cm.

Barefoot shots with Zane looks 184 range (185 being generous).

Today can hold 182, 183 range.

Towered over people in 80's because he had better posture + lifts or ''high heeled shoes'' as he refers to them.

Today has looser posture at times + injuries/surgeries + natural aging so can't pull off 6ft consistently these days.

Peak: 185
Current: 182/183

Arnold and Rob listed 6'1.25" Evander Holyfield.

Arnold looks taller than he is there because he has hair as opposed to the completely bald Holyfield. They look roughly the same height actually, but Arnold's eye level is around 1/4-1/2 inch higher. It certainly confirms Arnold being 6'1.5" there or nothing under 6'1" if you really want to dispute Holyfields height.

All the 5'11" Arnold fantasy lovers just keep chasing that dream, because actual evidence is never on your side. I do sympathize with your mentality of making things reality based only upon wanting it so. Let me try it. Robert Wadlow was was never much more than 7' peak, and I think even Shaq would edge him out.

Harold says on 31/Mar/15
Photograph after photograph is submitted on this site as 'evidence' that Arnold is or was six feet or over. And photograph after photograph is shot from the knees or waist up (not all of them, but, lately, most of them). Arnold is, as we know, an admitted 'high heels' (lifts/cowboy boot or motorcycle engineering boots) user. That includes the heel which you see and, quite possibly, the insert you don't see. I'm not saying it's a conspiracy. I'm saying that it's to the action hero's advantage to make you believe he's larger/stronger/younger than he actually is. If a good career move was looking older, he wouldn't dye his hair, cap his teeth, and resort to plastic surgery. If a good career move was to look shorter, he'd scrunch himself up and pretend to look shorter. There's money and, thus, a career, in being taller/bigger/younger for an action hero. Thus Stallone and his lifts. And Tom Cruise and his lifts. They didn't create the game. They're just following the unwritten rules of the game as it is played. Ditto, Arnie spreading the word for fifty years that he was ever six foot two (or, for that matter, six foot one and one-half inch). Pure balderdash, but entertaining nevertheless. As to 'height loss,' the idea that he somehow lost four inches in the last decade or so is so absurd it does not merit debate.
GP says on 30/Mar/15
Unless Arnold has osteoporosis, then the height loss everyone is claiming he has had doesn't make sense. I met him back when he still was a governor and he had his special cowboy boots on and with those he looked 6", which made him around 182-181. I have always said that Arnold was never 187, he was more 184 and I have spoken to guys at Gold's Gym in Venice and everyone told me that Arnold was never close to 6'2". In his younger days he was always 3" shorter than Ferrigno, who I know Rob lists him that he has lost an inch, but I think that he was always 6'3", which explains my theory that Arnold was 184. Even in Predator, in the beginning scene with Weathers, who is 6'1", Arnold looks the same height and he manages to do that by wearing cowboy boots in that scene.

I hardly think we'll ever hear Arnold quote himself as being 5'11. If flat out asked he'd probably go with 6'0.5 or 6'1.

The way he's going if he's still in the public eye in 10 years time I'd expect him to be a flat 5'10, and Sly will probably have boosts on the bottom of his walking frame.

Lorne, you've thought about the issue and I appreciate that. Some actors don't lie. Many do. Just like politicians. Both are in the appearance industry, where what you look like matters, so there is a kind of a built-in propensity to, shall we say, exaggerate. As to Arnie measuring ever measuring 6ft1.5 in his lifetime, how would we ever know? Because a bodybuilder says so? Because that was his billed height in bodybuilding magazines (the magazines were taken to court repeatedly for lying about the great health benefits of the 'protein powder' and 'muscle milk.' As to Arnie's word on his height, he has been caught in so many, shall we generously say, 'misremembered inacurracies,' why would one possibly believe him? No one ever denied Arnie was a great salesman. What it equally apparent is you can be a great salesman and be a less than honest human being. In sum, if Arnie was ever near his self-proclaimed billed height of six foot two, how could he possibly stand four or so inches shorter than that now? Arnie made his money off of the image of being superhuman. The mistake, to my mind, is confusing the actor before the lights and the cameras and the man himself. In other words, take away the cowboy boots, and you've got a five foot ten or five eleven guy (if that). But, honestly, who knows?
umadguy says on 25/Mar/15
when i first posted i also had not seen enough to make a correct judgement(i beleived other heights) and i got it wrong im not ashamed and ill admit that ,yes i am telling you they are all shorter than billed,your pictures are questionable because you showed 2 which arnold "appears" taller,i could triple the amount of pictures you have,where park is taller there is even pictures at the exact same time as ones you posted from different angles also there is a website with many rare photos of that era that you wont find on google images that very much prove that all these guys associated with joe weider are 100% not the heights they are billed next to his wife betty weider(brosmer) on FLAT ground(barefoot) who was supposedly 5'5,i would very much like you to try and disprove me on this one,the reason you have been tricked by the optics is because i told you that you have accepted the other bodybuilders heights as legit,they are in fact much much much shorter than you could refuse to beleive,thats why its so hard but i am being very honest here
Lorne says on 24/Mar/15
@Harold: There are plenty who are honest( at least about height.)

Some like Tom Welling are extremely accurate(as is Sorbo). Some guys even round down, an extreme example being Lee Pace, who is damn close to 6'4(listed 6ft3.75, which I believe) yet claims(or claimed rather) 6ft3.

Then you have John Travolta, who was being completely truthful with his six, a little over 6", and also David Duchovny, who had always claimed 6ft(and finally gave a more specific ""a bit over"* 6ft claim.

Oh, and Chris Pine is honest.

My point is that plenty of actors/actresses are honest. A lot are dishonest, and some are probably just mistaken or don't give a damn.

As for Arnie, I believe he really did measure 6ft1.5 at some point, and rounded it up. That isn't a lie. His more recent claims though, well... let's just say I wouldn't bet on it!

But that's probably a weird pride thing or something. But I don't consider the 6'2 claim a lie, for what it's worth.

umadgay i find it hard to believe that all the people who are with barefoot arnold gave their height wrong and that their height is wrongly esteemed in this site. You wanna downgrade everyone else to downgrade arnold ?

What i said abount nubret is not, obviously, the main reason to consider him 5'11. I just said 180 cm. is his billed height, sometimes he is credited even taller. This is the main reason, and it is supported by the fact that he is taller than average as you can see by the pictures. I did not say he is 180
because he is taller than his buddies, i said don't make me laugh considering as shorter than 180 a person officially listed from 5'11 to 6' (read my first post) who is clearly taller than average
So we have
nubret 180
ferrigno 193
bridges 187
reg park 185
draper 180
at their billed heights. All of them appear barefoot with arnold, confirming arnold height being around 186-187. Only bridges, wearing shoes, appear face to face with barefoot arnold and he looks slightly taller.
Are you really telling me they are ALL shorter than their height!?
about reg park, these pics show no camera advantage:

Alex -- thank you for reintroducing that picture to the discussion. It's perhaps the best piece of evidence for assessing the young Arnold.

Dave Draper -- 183 cm
Reg Park -- 185/6 cm
Arnold Schwarzenegger -- 186/7 cm

If Arnold was less than 6' 1'', then Dave Draper and Reg Park must both be downgraded. Rob has Reg Park at 6' 1'' IIRC

For the record, Kevin Sorbo is looking like just about the only honest guy in Hollywood.

Have you guys noticed that the more Arnold shrinks, the larger his watch grows? At the rate he's going, his watch will be the size of a hubcap and he'll be the size of Verne Troyer.
