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.

@Jordan87 Fanboy sorry to burst the bubble. How about INSTEAD we listen to the people above who met him,Kevin Sorbo etc. All say the same thing. Are they all liars????? Doubtful. Arnie was a tiny bit over 6 ft prime. Now "substantially shorter than six foot." as quote by Richard E Grant. And guess what?? He actually met him !! Sorry fanboy

I agree hunbert5'11tall. He said:

Lou Ferrigno was a strong 6'3 today is 6'2.5 no more. Arnold in his peak days hit 6 foot and quarter inch nothin over. 6'1 mornin if that! This is the truth. 2 inches on both is on movies get it guys?
Lol yea totally agree. In the real world Lou was a strong 6'3 and Arnold strong 6'0. 6'0.25 at most peak days

Jim Hopper,

There are better pictures or Arnold and HHH available. Dont post pics that show one guy clearly leaning in it. Also you can't see Arnold's Stance. Focus. Find better pics.
RichardSpain said on 23/Jun/17
Rob I think Arnold wasn't 187cm in peak. I watched some pics in Google face to face with James Cameron and with George Bush father ( they are /were a solid 188cm) and Arnold is shorter than them.So in my opinion Arnold was 185/186cm in peak barefoot not more. And today 182cm is possible. Last night I was watching his last movie "Aftermath" and I think he wears elevator boots. Good drama role in this movie.
Editor Rob: the 186 estimates for him are believable, but it means the 6ft 1.5 he was measured would be slightly incorrect.

@BarryFl, the camera angle is not in Arnold's favour!

Never meant that, Slim. I don't think Arnold has any height advantage on that picture at all, nor is he especially closer to the camera as the OP suggested! I was just commenting generally. My own belief is that Arnold easily cleared 6'1" in his twenties.

You can't always judge a person's height just from a picture, even relative to someone else. There are full length pictures of Arnold with other bodybuilders (no shoes) back in the 70s where he looks an inch or so taller, and then other pictures where he towers over them. Same with other people. I guess little changes in posture and position etc can have a drastic effect, certainly when captured in a still image.

Indeed, totally agree and see this a lot. Also the height and the angle of the photographer can have a major influence!
jervis said on 22/Jun/17
Yes Opus he is closer to the camera.His hands are in front of the guy beside.

@Opus, I also believe the guy in the middle is closest to the camera (well duh)

In the photo with Draper and Park, Arnold is standing quite a few inches closer to the camera if you look closely at their feet on the stage.
Slim 181 cm said on 21/Jun/17
Arnold ain't a lift wearer, he just has awesome proportions (long legs short torso) and it gives the illusion of being and inch taller or so.

Clearly 6' 1.5'' peak. Lou was no more than 3 inches taller than him.
5'11.25 at noon said on 20/Jun/17
He could have topped out at 6'1.25 in his early 20's
@ Rob what do you think I could measure right after waking up?
5'11.25 at noon. said on 20/Jun/17
Could have been like 6'1.25 in his early 20's
Rob : how much taller coul I've been measured if I got measured a few minutes after waking up ?
Jim Hopper said on 20/Jun/17
@Fred84. Yeah Arnie is certainly under 6-0" on your picture. 5-11" max.
ginersen said on 20/Jun/17
I believe in his peak he was 6 foot tall and half inch maybe close to the 6'1 mark.
BarryFl said on 20/Jun/17
I think Stallone can look 5'10 in a good pair of shoes, which is why he sometimes looks very close to Arnold in height.
BarryFl said on 20/Jun/17
For what it's worth, I'd give Arnold an easy 6'1 in his younger days and at least 5'11 now (though looking less with bad posture). But - unlike certain rabid folk around here - that's my opinion. It's not a fact and I'm not spitting fire at anyone who chooses to think otherwise. I don't know for certain, and nobody except Arnold's doctor does.
James said on 20/Jun/17
Giving prime Arnold a height shorter than 6'0 is just absurd. I'd say a solid 6'1 maybe a tall 6'1 at his peak.

Today? 5'11 range. And that is likely cause the weight lifting takes a toll on your spine.
Luntis said on 19/Jun/17
BarryFl- FULL AGREE! Arnold was 6 foot very lucky if 6'05. Today 5'10 and 1/2 or 178-179
Luntis said on 19/Jun/17
Stallone was 173-173'5 cm peak. Today around 172cm or a weak 5'8. He is known for using footwear advantage. Sometimes he wears lifts. Arnold was 6 foot peak and TODAY 5'10/2 very close to 5'11. In the past it was bigger the height difference between them, because today Arnold has a bad posture and shrunk a bit more while Stallone has kept standing tall with a healtyh posture and maybe he is using lifts. Conclusion today Arnold looks 2 inches taller than Stallone.
But if Arnold stands tall he is close to 3 inches taller. weak 5'8 Stallone vs close to a 5'11 Arnold

There is Stallone with Schwarzenegger in this photo. Maybe they have different kind of shoes. In my opinion, there is not the difference about 8 cm (3 inches), I would say max 2 inches ... what do you think, everyone?

I believe arnie is at worst 183cm barefoot peak and 178cm barefoot now. Nothing less but 0.25' more is possible
BarryFl said on 19/Jun/17
Jim Hopper said on 18/Jun/17
Arnie was never 6-1 or over. Just over 6-0 prime. Facts not fanboys thanks.

How is this a fact, Jim? Rather than just your own opinion? You got the absolute final irrefutable proof?

Jim Hopper said on 18/Jun/17
@BarryFI Joe 5-11"???? LOL OK... At the age in the picture hes getting on a bit,not even at peak which I found from 5-9 to 5-10. Sorry but fanboys will be fanboys. Arnie was never 6-1 or over. Just over 6-0 prime. Facts not fanboys thanks.

I'm a Joe Weider 'fanboy'? That's why I had to look up his height on the internet is it? And everything I found said 5'10 or even a couple of mentions of 5'11. Not once did I see a 5'9.5 except on your post. Trouble is if you want to find 'evidence' that Arnold was the height you want him to be, you will. If somebody else wants to find 'evidence' that he's the height they want him to be, they will. My only concern is when people start to twist the truth, or to manufacture their own facts, or to ignore the blindingly obvious. I'm not a 'fanboy' of anybody, thanks.

What do you think about this system of general height classing? Considering 5'9(.25)'' is average American male height, the levels are about the same percentile, for example, being under 5'5'' is the bottom 5.5 percent of the population, and being 6'2''+ is the top 5.5 percent of the population.

With 5.9-5" Joe. Arnies as tall as possible here due to the back arched and body fully stood straight, 6-2" here??? Not even close. Just over 6-0" is his true prime height. Click Here

I can find mention of Joe Weider at 5'10. I can even find mention of him at 5'11. I can't find any mention of him at 5'9.5. And I should think he's wearing shoes in that picture, whereas Arnold wouldn't be. Shoes would've put Joe at about 5'11 (assuming he was 5'9.5-10 and the shoes were not especially large heeled). So, yes, Arnold does look 6'1 or 6'2.

5 ft 11,5 in or 71,5 inches are equal to 180,34 cm, not 182 like you have posted, Rob. Also 6'1.5" = 185.42cm, Rob.
As for Arnie's height no one, literally no one here believes he was anywhere near 6'2". Why would you put him at 6'1.5", Rob? There are several photos of Arnold and Stallone from 1980's where we can clearly see that Arnold had only couple inches over Sly. At his peak!!!

Everything about your entire post is so inaccurate.

@gonzaloferro can u give us the article plz
gonzaloferro said on 17/Jun/17
Also there's an article where confirmed Arnold was at 16 years old a 180 cm teenager who was lifting at that time. Average guy would grow max 7 cm more after 16 but being Arnold and what I read he grew 1 inch more so I beliebe he hit 183 cm max at most. He was anywhere around 181-183cm (5'11,25. 6 foot) in his peak over that is unfair and just fake, with a lot of luck he hit 184 cm morning lunch time

Editor Rob: sorry, but your conversion is wrong 😵

Everybody knows the constant for 1 inch is 2.54cm.

71.5 * 2.54 = 181.61 cm

6ft 1.5 = (6 * 12) + 1.5 = 73.5 inches

73.5 * 2.54 = 186.69cm 😇

Arnold's growth ... In his youth he was actually in the range of 186-187 cm and it was confirmed by other bodybuilders. What is today's range of 181-182 cm actually seems to be suitable for him, and 178-179 cm even today I seem to be a little commedy 😂
AlexItaly said on 15/Jun/17
Ok so in order to downgrade Arnold, you downgraded Lou Ferrigno, Jeff Bridges and Carl Weathers. Who's next, why not Holyfield that was clearly shorter than Arnold in 1995? Wait, I have an idea for you haters, why don't we downgrade the entire world population in order to downagrade Arnold? :-D

And that puts Hulk Hogan in the same range today, seeing they are the same height today based on their very recent pic.

@Jim Hopper
Shoes are the same that pic , and do you realy think there's 2" between them wich means 5cm !!!!

Yeah, I wouldn't say there's much if any difference. Looking at their shoulder heights, Arnold is leaning in slightly as Jim has his arm raised up behind Arnold's back. If he was straightened up, who knows? Quite possibly the same height. Not syaing I haven't seen Cameron looking taller, just not on this picture. And as for Arnold wearing big wedge shoes there, not a chance.

They don't look like wedge shoes at all.
Alexander5'11 said on 14/Jun/17
the big proof Arnold was 6 foot in de 70`s (peak height)is Lou Ferrigno, and Rob met him. Lou was max 6'3. Today is a little over 6'2.0 I know he is 188-189 cm range (6,2.25) thanks to my friend who is 6'2.5 and told me he looked exactly the same height as him maybe a little over him. So the proof Arnold was 6 foot is Lou who was 6'3 at most. You can compare him next to Arnold in the 70´s. He was about 2'5 inches taller than Arnold maybe 3 making Arnold his realpeak 6 foot height. (FANS BOY will say Lou was 6'5 and Arnold 6'2 lol lol lol lol. My friend and Rob met Lou and clearly is impossible to shrunk 3 inches he looked with a good and athletiv posture. Lou was 6'3 at most and Arnold 6.'.25 at most

Rob why he looked 6 foot in 80's movies? In Comando (1985) one of my favorite movies he looked 5'11.5 with luck 6'0.00. The black guy is 6'3 close to 6'4 and tower him like 3 inches, but his hair style can put him close to 6'1. You can see in this movie Arnold looks like a classic 6 foot man with luck. He was 37 at that time and stand walking tall. in 90's looked 5'11 range close to 6.




The black guy(bill duke) you are referring to is a strong 6'4" so that leaves Arnie at 6'1" range again but he did have a little more shoe so about 6'1".

I eat Green berets for breakfast and right now I am very hungry.

I'll give 183 for Arnold anyway. Strong 6.0 at 1970's
jonathan34 said on 13/Jun/17
Pierre the reason is because Lou Ferrigno was never 6'5. well.. maybe in his dreams. He was 6'2.75- 6'3 and Arnold was 3 inches shorter than him. Arnold was 181-183 cm at most
James said on 13/Jun/17
Ferrigno was 6'1".
Peter 179cm said on 13/Jun/17
@ Afka9 This is a late response but i'll go ahead: Army measurements are usually taken in shoes as a guy i know claims to have been measured at 179cm in the army and i'm comfortably 3-4cm taller than him if not 5cm.Of course he could just be lying but it makes sense that the Army measures in shoes and weighs in uniforms.I've seen medical tests taken in the Army and ALL the participants kept their footwear when they got measured.In other words your father was likely 179-180 range at 18.
AlexItaly said on 13/Jun/17
Just type "holyfield schwarzenegger 1995" and you will see that Arnold was clearly taller than 186 cm. tall Holyfield back in the ninetis. Even assuming he had shoes advantage, this puts him AT LEAST at 186 cm in 1995. He probably was 187-188 when younger.
Pierre said on 13/Jun/17
@Duncan=yes there is a picture in the web but Arnold is closer to the camera so look bigger,and it's impossible to see if he has lifts or not imo ;Chris seem have a relaxed posture(knee),their shoulders seem to be around the same height
Duncan said on 13/Jun/17
Look at Arnold with Chris Eubank in 2013 at 'The Last Stand' party. Full length pictures. Both wearing regular dress shoes and Arnold - age 66 - looks 3 inches taller (not only that, big bigger proportionately). Chris Eubank a very strong 5'10".
Heightlover said on 12/Jun/17
Tommy181 totally agree. In Comando he looked a strong 5'11 close to 6'0. Maybe because he never was over 6 feet with out his shoes

Young Lou Ferrigno is looking around 3 inches shorter than Dick Durock (listed 6"5.5/6"6') and Arnold is looking around 3 inches shorter than Lou....

No matter what people said. I'm tired about this discussion. People should search by themselves and listen. Think by yourself. You don't have to believe what others said. Just watch. He never looked 187 cm barefoot .Any guy around his height know this! Maybe in movies looked that some times on some angles, with boots etcc. But Arnold is far a away from a 6'2 guy. The most he ever looked is 6'1. Anyone who believes he was over this mark is BLIND! Or maybe a short guy or below 6 foot, because anyone here with some sense height, etc sees he was 184 cm at most! 185'5 maybe morning height. ENDDDDD OF THIS STORYYYYYY AND FOR THE THIRD TIME I'M HIS BIGGEST FAN! today is 178-179cm maybe 180 at morning
Heightlover said on 11/Jun/17
MJKoP Maybe he hit that mark 6'1.5" with his trainers on. However that's what VINCE said. No proof. It's obvius he never was 187 cm barefoot and of course being the end of the day makes that even more unreal.

2017 is the year ROB should change this height listed. At least 1 cm would be more realistic and fair and current Arnold height at least 1'5 cm

Heightlover said on 8/Jun/17
S.J.H Yeah. I also believe that estimation. Arnold was around 6'0.25 6'0.75 peak and today he is in the 5'10 range, Over 6'1 that is ridiculous just a dream for fanboys and I 've always been his fan

Over 6'1 is "a dream for fanboys"...which is exactly why Vince Basille(about as far from an Arnold fanboy as you can get), allowed Rob show an e-mail at the top of this very page where he talks about measuring Mr. Schwarzenegger at 6'1.5" on a stadiometer...after a long, grueling day of weight training. But I'm sure Basille is just lying about everything and he is actually an Arnie fanboy in disguise, right? I mean, that's hardly a small price to pay for some extra height-claiming sycophant credibility...publicly faking a dislike for one of the most universally loved and cherished public figures EVER - makes perfect sense.
Heightlover said on 10/Jun/17
If a guy is 6'05, most of people would guess a height around 6'1'5- 6'2, because 3 cm is what usually people add to his own height. I'm 6'0 evenign height and always they believe I'm 6'1, because people overstimate real height. Arnold was 183,5- 184 cm at most. Maybe 6'1 right after bed

i'm talking about weathers back in the 80s in predator , with rob he looks more than 6ft
Pierre said on 10/Jun/17
@Lak=the reason why Arnold look tall next to Carl Weathers is maybe because Carl was maybe not 6"1' barefoot=in the first picture next to Rob he looks like a strong 5"11' next to Rob imo,no more

RisingForce said on 9/Jun/17
Gary, I agree, I've never seen any evidence of Arnold wearing lifts, but a 5'11" man wouldn't look over 6'2". Even 3" elevators are enormous and would only give roughly 2" extra inches compared to normal shoes. More likely, a 5'11" man will pull off a solid 6 feet or a bit over in normal lifts. With that said, I still wouldn't go as low as a flat 5'11" for Arnold, I believe Rob's listings are fine for peak and current.
Heightlover said on 8/Jun/17

Arnold is short looking but not as low as 5'9 that ridiculous i read up from some source and acticles over 10years ago and still many people discuss in some forum now. The cruel part he might be 6'0.25 peak (6'1.5 w shoes) and have dip into 5'10.25 now but at least 5'11.5 fit in a leather shoes
Gary said on 8/Jun/17
Canson said on 7/Jun/17
@Rising force: peak I believe he was. Today I can't tell tho how much he's lost. He wears lifts but to be honest people don't take into account he doesn't have perfect posture either most likely. But It will not tell on him as much with his build as it does on the average person tho. I think somewhere around 5'11 today

Give it a rest with the lifts! Arnold does not wear lifts. If he was 5'11 and wore lifts in his shoes then he'd still look 6'2 or more to this day, and he doesn't. So I don't get why you're saying he wears lifts.
Schlomo said on 7/Jun/17
arnold is about 5'8" tall. don't believe me just google his name with the term "daughter" and see pics of him walking next to his 5'8" daughter. she is wearing flat shoes in the pic.

He was maybe 6'1'25 peak morning height. Never over 6'0.75 or 184'5 cm
REMfanNO1 said on 7/Jun/17
I see so much talking about noting. This one is easy, Arnold was comfortably six two when young, shrunk to six more or less in his seventies.
Canson said on 7/Jun/17
@Rising force: peak I believe he was. Today I can't tell tho how much he's lost. He wears lifts but to be honest people don't take into account he doesn't have perfect posture either most likely. But It will not tell on him as much with his build as it does on the average person tho. I think somewhere around 5'11 today
pol_clemente said on 7/Jun/17
Peak height was a flat 6'1", 186 morning, 184 evening. He's lost more height than most guys his age though, I think he now wakes up around 181 cm, 179 at night. Now 181 is not short but due to his build and huge upper body, he looks positively stocky now.
RisingForce said on 6/Jun/17
Canson, I do see Arnold at 185 cm until the late 90s. If you look at this video in 1999 with The Rock, he measures up pretty well at about age 52: Click Here I do believe Rock was about 6'3" in the late 90s/early 2000s and I see only a 2 inch difference when they're equal distance from the camera: Click Here I think there's a very good chance Arnold could have lost some height by this time too. He did start looking noticeably shorter to me around The 6th Day, which was probably filmed not long after this since it came out the following year. Arnold still looked 6'1" to me throughout the 90s.
Gary said on 6/Jun/17
Both seated and standing, Arnold does have very careless posture, which makes him look shorter and more shrunken than he is - especially noticeable as he ages and thickens. A surprise for someone who otherwise tries to look so macho, and hangs around gigantic fellows all the time.
Canson said on 5/Jun/17
@rising force I'd go no lower than 184/185 peak he may have been a true 6'1 flat at his lowest. I have a hard time seein 187 but also less than 184 at his peak

Peter 179 you could not say it better. TOTALLY AGREE ON EVERYTHING YOU SAID. END OF STORY 179 TODAY . back then: 184-184'5 cm. 185 MORNING HOURS , 6'1'25(186 cm) first 2 hours after bed or with his trainers sneakers

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jun/17
He could have worn lifts to look 6ft3 so 6ft1½ is still fair...
Afka9 said on 4/Jun/17
I am sure when he was young( his late 20's) his height was over 6'1. Probably 186-187 cm . 180-182 cm was ridiculus for him. Now probably he is beetween 180-182 cm. 5 cm shrink is not too much my father was measured 182 cm before he was going to army in 18 years old. Now he is 73 and his height is maximum 175 cm
Peter 179cm said on 4/Jun/17
Arnold may have lost 5cm but 7-8cm is too much for his present age and former lifestyle.It's mainly due to bad posture that he looks way shorter now than say 15 years back.His legs may look straight all the time but his torso is going up and down.And lets not forget how easy is to stand 2-3cm shorter than your measured height if you dont work on posture.Peak height 184-185cm and 179-180cm nowadays.The 6'1.5 measurement could be valid as an out of bed height or with trainers on back in the day of course.
Afka9 said on 3/Jun/17
In peak,i think his height was lowest 184-185 cm, highest 186-187 cm. But 180 cm or 182 cm was too low for him

RisingForce said on 3/Jun/17
Canson, I believe your estimate is completely reasonable, I would just draw the line on anything below 184 cm, but I still do believe he's the height he claimed and Vince Basille claimed to measure him at. I agree on a 2 inch loss and a flat 5'11" is possible, but I wouldn't go any lower and I really still see him at least 181 cm. Rampage, well, Vince Basille did specifically say he measured Arnold in the evening, so if Vince was accurate then naturally, Arnold would have to measure around 6'1.75" around lunch time, except for maybe after an early workout. I do see him and Letterman as almost identical peak, at least as late as the 1991 interview: Click Here Both 187 cm range guys, imo. Close enough to the 6'2" they claimed. I've never been completely certain though because Dave can slouch and Arnold is Arnold.

PeaK

Lou: 191
Arnold: 183,5 (could be either 183 or 184)
Lou now: 189
Arnold now: 179

Arnold lost more height and it is visible.
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jun/17
@ Gary - That was well worth saying!
It makes sense that taller people are more likely to lose more height because they have that much more to lose, and height-loss must surely be in proportion to the individual.

Arnold's new guesses from me are 6ft2 peak height; 5ft11.75 now.
Johan said on 2/Jun/17
Arnold wasn't a lift wearer he just loves cowboyboots which give him an advantage but not as much as an elevator.

I still think the absolute lowest he could have been was 6'0.75 with a maximum of 6'1.25" so more 185-186 than 186-187.

Nowadays he can look as high as 5'11.25" and as low as 5'10.5" so I just go with the averages.

6'1" for peak and 5'11" today.
Gary said on 2/Jun/17
I don't think Arnold is a lift-wearer at all. People mention his cowboy boots all the time. fair enough, but in America cowboy boots aren't all that unusual. And Arnold made a name for himself appearing around the world wearing only a pair of swimming trunks after all. And still got a reputation as a 6'2 man. make of that what you will. For what it's worth I'd put him 6'1-2 in his young days and no less than 5'11 now. But I wouldn't call him a lift wearer, otherwise he'd be appearing at over 6'2 or evn 6'3 to this day wherever he goes, and he quite clearer doesn't.
Danimal said on 2/Jun/17
Lou was around 6'4" in his younger days. He's 65 today, has lifted heavy weights for over 50 years and has had complete hip replacement surgery. He's not less than 6'2" today (same height as present day Hulk Hogan).

Rob, who do you think would be tallest peak out of Schwarzegger, Brosnan and Letterman?
Editor Rob: it really could end up being a toss up with them, I can understand 6ft 1.25 range as being a possible Arnie range, and maybe his 6ft 1.5 was busting a gut. Lettermann could look nearer 6ft 2 in the 80's
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
@Gary: I believe he's lost two inches for sure. He may have been a legit 6'1" peak which is likely but today 5'11. What sparks debate here is he is a notorious lift wearer
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
Agree with original on Lou. Never was 6'4 strong 6'3.

I don't see why some people find it hard to believe Arnold could have lost almost 3 inches. A friend of mine who was a good 5'11 when he was a young fellow is now only just scraping 5'9. So somebody taller could have lost more. And look at Prince Philip - a 6 footer in his youth and now most people say he's only 5'8 or 9!
jervis said on 1/Jun/17
If you look at stay hungry at 1hr13.42 mins you will see 6ft4 listed Ed Begley jnr face to face with 6ft1.5 listed Jeff Bridges in it Bridges looks a good 4 inches shorter, its odd because there is a much bigger difference between Begley jnr and Bridges, and Clint Eastwood and Bridges,Arnold does look the same height as Bridges,but if Begley jnr was 6ft4 then its hard for me to see Bridges being 6ft1.5 and Arnold being this height too.
James said on 1/Jun/17
He most likely shrunk a bunch because of so much damage to the body and back. You lose height if you are out of shape, fat, overweight and don't weight train to retain muscle strength and yes posture. However, Arnold for years maxed out weight and put that on his spine and system. Wouldn't shock me if that causes shrinkage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/17
He could have been measured at both 6ft1½ and 6ft1¾ but perhaps the latter at an earlier time like just before lunch or something. Looking at how he stacked up against other guys in the 70's, I buy it. He was identical to Jeff Bridges or David Letterman, some argue he edged them. Not quite a full 3in below Ferrigno (not below 6ft4 and possibly 6ft4¼).
Canson said on 31/May/17
@Rising Force: in his peak Arnold was a strong 6'0" close to 6'1" but not nearly 6'2". He wasn't as small as 5'11" I do agree with you there however
RisingForce said on 31/May/17
Arnold didn't wear lifts, though, so it's really the difference between Bridges being in shoes and Arnold being barefoot, possibly losing more height as well lifting to film the scene and Arnold and Bridges both in shoes. It seems to be more of what I was saying. Arnold was taller than 6'1" guys in his prime, but shorter than legit 6'2" guys.
Jim said on 31/May/17
@Leo2001. Arnold is wearing cowboy boots to Jeff's normal shoes in that scene. You should watch the movie Stay Hungry again where Arnold is walking away from the camera in that particular scene showing his footwear.
jervis said on 31/May/17
yes its funny that hes taller than Bridges there but in Stay Hungry the bare foot Arnold is smaller than Bridges, it goes to show how much difference a pair of Shoes can make.
Mgille said on 31/May/17
So why Kevin Sorbo said he is like 5"11 some time ago? Why a lot of tall guys also said he was max 6 feet? Tall guys or over 6 feet guys has the best reference to guess Arnold's height.Do you believe a healthy and strong man like Arnold has shrunk 8 cm?( more than 3inches! those who keep saiying he was 6'1"5 or 186-187 cm are lost and ignorants. My grandes has never train lifting and she has shrunk 4cm ( 1inch and 3/4) (77 years old) how can anyone can believe this story? Learn, watch and study please. This is the truth. He was about 6 feet 181/183 max today 177 /178. It is amazing still say he was 187?? Anotther and strong proof is today all this guys who met him claming he is 5'10 Range, and politicians saying he is a 5"10 guy when he was gobernor and other ones who met him in the 90"ss : Arnold is 5"11

He was clearly and without a doubt in the range between 6'1 and 6'2. No brainer. I know all these discussions with haters and trolls generate a lot of traffic but come on...there is a orgy of evidence he was 186-187 cm. tall in his youth, lets say until the late eighties.
RisingForce said on 29/May/17
Heightlover, what would my estimate have to do with me being 5'9" and why would that be funny? As a matter of fact, I'm a bit under 5'9" in bare feet. I say Arnold was 6'1.75" for several reasons. One being that he consistently looked taller than 6'1" men, plus we have a body builder Vince Basille who didn't like Arnold personally who claimed to measure Arnold 6'1.5" in the EVENING. Arnold in 2008 claimed 6'1.75" for his peak height and that adds up perfectly with a 6'1.5" evening measurement. Usually, someone will be about 1/4" or so taller during normal midday measuring time than they are in the evening so it all adds up. It seems likely Arnold measured 6'1.75" at a more typical measuring time, which seems to validate Basille's measurement. I mean, otherwise why claim 6'1.75" instead of his usual 6'2" or 6'1.5"? Arnold doesn't seem so height conscious as to try to elaborately fool people. Basille says he measured just about his usual 5'9.5" so he believed the scale is accurate and other body builders measured 1/2" below their claimed heights so it doesn't seem it was particularly inflated. Here are quotes from Vince Basille

"Several of the guys there claimed certain heights and everyone was at least 1/2 inch shorter on Mit's scale. Arnold claimed 6' 2" but measured 6' 1 1/2" that evening. I did say that he might be 6-2 in the morning. There were several other people there when I measured Arnold and several other guys. Paul Graham from Australia and Bob Bruce from New Zealand who promoted contests were two others I remember getting measured. Both of those guys were under 5-8 and I have a good idea how tall I am. I measured 5-9 1/2 that day and that is about right so the gauge was accurate."

So until we have some new compelling evidence, I think he was 6'1.75" when he was younger and a bit over 6'2" in the morning, but down to 6'1.5" in the evening. It's possible he could measure even a bit lower, closer to 186 cm after a heavy workout. Basille's story seems credible to me and the measurement result looks plausible. And I know how height is measured. You can be quite obnoxious. Me believing Arnold was 187 cm and you believing he was 185 cm is no reason to be condescending.

If they wanted to make Arnold look taller they wouldn't have chosen such an enormous cast. 6'1"+ Weathers, 6'2.5" Sonny Landham, 6'4"+ Bill Duke, 6'3"+ Jesse Ventura etc. Arnold is taller in the promo shots where you can see their entire bodies as well: Click Here Click Here I do agree that you have to take movies with a grain of salt a lot of times, but let's face it, if there's a movie where Arnold looks shorter than for some, it's as good as a stadiometer measurement. But particularly if several of us try over time, we should get a response from Brigitte since she only has about 10,000 twitter followers. We must make sure to specify peak height, though.
MJKoP said on 29/May/17
One of the head people involved with T2 described Arnold as 6'3" in relation the original character being written as a more nondescript 5'10"-6'0" everyday type of guy. I know the exact quote was posted here before, but if the man who said it was on set and witnessed Arnold during the multiple scenes where he was completely naked(and yes, you could clearly see his bare feet), then the six foot three description is of some very convincing value.
Hyde said on 29/May/17

opus said on 28/May/17
interesting how people keep bringing the predator scene with Weathers. a few things to take into account, never try to guess somebodies height by a movie scene as its extremely to make actors look taller or shorter with camera angle/directions. Arnold is also the star of his movies, so directors aren't going to make him look the shortest guy. Another thing, if you saw a full body shot of the 2 in that scene, I would imagine that Arnold would have had a shoe advantage guaranteed.
Original said on 28/May/17
@ Jim Hopper Probably 4' inches taller than Zane.

But like I said 6'0.5" peak and 5'10.75" now.
RisingForce said on 28/May/17
I'm not "giving" Arnold anything. Jim, Arnold looks about 185 cm range in that pic, so how is it "100% proof"? I don't see a stadiometer there. If Arnold were 6'1" flat or less, then he'd be shorter than Carl Weathers: Click Here Instead, as you can see he's clearly taller. Carl is still about 6'1" so there's a strong chance he was 186 cm himself. After all, the Oakland Raiders listed him 6'2". Arnold looks no less than a strong 187 cm with him, in other words, 6'1.75". But let's ask Brigitte. I will consider revising my estimate down depending on what she says. It is possible Arnold was only 185-186 cm peak and Basille measured incorrectly or his memory is off, but serious discussion starts at 184 cm(6'0.5"), anything below that for Arnold's peak is trolling, much like the 6'2" peak Clint Eastwood you see people try nowadays. I personally believe Arnold was measured 6'1.5" barefoot in the evening by Vince Basille and if you believe Vince, then it naturally follows that Arnold also measured 6'1.75" barefoot midday/afternoon at some point during his prime then more recently measured 6'1" in shoes at age 60 and 6'0.5" in shoes at 65, which I think he's holding onto approaching his 70th birthday.

yeah i have to agree that one scene that is making this 187 listing possible is his scene with bridges barefoot. he is only 2 cm shorter and barefoot. so they where the same height. But the shoes was very flat so maybe bridges was 0,5 cm taller. the shorterst possible for bridges is 186 peak. But i believe he was 186,7 that makes arnold 186,2 pretty mutch what he always have looked
Terry34 said on 27/May/17
The day anyone here learn what is a medical height measurement give me a call please. You don't have idea how tall is a guy about 187 cm tall. Arnold was maybe 185 cm tall one day in his prime Frank Zane of course was never 5'9. If you guys have eyes you can see he was about 5'8". He looked a bit shorter than Stallone. Conclusion stop giving 3/4 inch to Arnold please. I also love him but in my opinion he was a very strong 6' man. 6'075-6'1 max
Johan said on 27/May/17
Arnie had an inch on Brigitte during the fiming of Red Sonja. She always claimed 6' back in the 80's. I would be interested to hear her opinion of Arnie's height because she was bang on with Stallone (5'9) and Eddie Murphy (5'9). Its one of the main reasons that I believe Arnold was 6'1.25" tops at his peak.
RisingForce said on 27/May/17
Brigitte has claimed 6'1" many times over the years, such as this interview @ 10 second mark: Click Here I doubt she's also claiming 182 cm so we need proof of that claim. That was literally the first interview I saw when I just searched on YouTube to illustrate how often she's said 6'1". She's not that tall, but she was probably between 183-184 cm, maybe 6'0.25" and Arnold was clearly taller. Why doesn't someone ask her how tall Arnold was in his prime? She'd definitely have an idea since the 174-175 cm she gave for Sly Stallone and 5'9"-5'9.5" for Eddie Murphy show she is very good at estimating height. Jeff Bridges has lost noticeable height, just like Arnold. If he was 6'1.5" peak, then he'd be about 6'2.5" in shoes, so he should look a bit taller than a 6'1.75" barefoot Arnold. Carl Weathers is still about 6'1" so he could have been a bit over it, very likely 186 cm, yet he was shorter than Arnold, same with 6'1" Tom Arnold, even in True Lies. Arnold was still not much shorter than 6'2" Nick Chinlund in Eraser(1996). Seeing Arnold with men in that height range, we can say Arnold was likely taller than 6'1", but shorter than a full 6'2". Look how Arnold towered over a 5'9" man like Frank Zane: Click Here
AlexItaly said on 26/May/17
Bridges was a solid 6'1 at 186-187. Arnold was a fraction smaller in that shot but he also was barefoot while Bridges had sneakers on. So it is clear that Arnold was 186-187 cm. as well. Jeff Bridges has always been a very strong 6'1 or weak 6'2. Trying to downgrade him to downgrade Arnold accordingly looks like a pathetic attempt to me.

Arnie was a solid 6'1 peak. Jef brigdes was also a solid 6'1 peak. Clint was a very strong 6'3 peak, almost 6'4. Heston was 6'2 peak.

6'2" flat out of bed at peak height, mid day height being 6'1.5" (186cm 187cm) and end of day 6'1" flat, I believe this is closer to the truth.
Strong 6'1", weak 6'2".
luntis said on 25/May/17
Most of people lives with his own height wrong. Learn first what's a medical measurement please! Hair and shoes do not count! Clint looked 6'3" in movies agree! But hair, and boots do not count! Forget his slim body type. He was a real and strong 6'2" guy
luntis said on 25/May/17
Jervis Clint Eastwood is the type of guy you'd think is taller. He is really slim and long legs. You don't even know what is a 6'4" guys! It's an NBA height! Clint was not even 190 cm! He is the type of guy you would think is almost 2 inches taller he was 189 cm never over! 6'2"75 on a good day in his prime
luntis said on 25/May/17
jervis because Hollywood and this famous sector always rises height a bit. 80% of actors are a bit shorter than they claim. Down grade 1 inch for most of them . Charlton Heston of course was on the 6'1 range, however the pic u are talking about you do not even see their shoes and floor. Remember 90% of people do not have any idea what's medical height or real height. Downgrade at least 1 inch these actors. It's obvius Clint was never 6'3" his morning height. Charlton Heston was arounbd 186-187 cm
jervis said on 25/May/17
A 6ft.5 Guy with a good pair of shoes 1.5 inch heels extra 1 inch lift inside and standing with military posture,can easily look 6ft3 in shoes and make you think barefoot he is 6ft1.5 .

If Clint was 6ft2.25, how come he was taller than 6ft2.5 Charlton Heston?Was Hestons height also wrong, was he more 6ft1 range?Clint was 6ft3 to 6ft3.5 peak there is a lot of pics out there to prove that,he can even look the full 6ft4 in some.

Danimal you are wrong Arnold and Carl Weathers were around same height in Predator. Even being Arnold the main character and the "famous guy" always directors etc, were interested to make him taller with angles scens, also I've heard he has were lifts some time. His athletic posture makes him a 6'1 guy, but he was 6'05" at most 6'075 in his best prime. Nothing more!
jervis said on 24/May/17
Maybe he was wearing lifts at the time, because he also looked only slightly shorter than Clint Eastwood in the early 90s when Clint was still around 6ft2.5.
Tobias said on 24/May/17
If he's 5' 11.5", Tom must be bigger than everyone suspects, because they're both notorious lift wearers and Tom is only a couple inches shorter

Editor Rob: funny thing is Arnie once edged out a guy like Carl Weathers.

Now he's nearly 2 inches shorter than Carl...

He also edged out Evander Holyfield in the 1990's and is now at least 2" shorter than him.
Danimal said on 23/May/17
So Rob, you never answered my question. What will it take for you to lower his height to 5'11"? You can't have him the same height as Jimmy Fallon when he was clearly shorter than him by a noticeable amount.
Editor Rob: maybe this year
Tomy181 said on 23/May/17
You can see pictures with James Cameron who's height was 187 cm he is 1, 1'5 inch taller. So Arnold maybe in a good day hit 184'5 cm
AlexItaly said on 23/May/17
Willy4400, 6'2 guys can have all kind of proportions. They can be with low, medium or high baricentre, long hips or short hips in relation with the body. For example Ibrahimovic is 195 cm tall but still has a long torso and short legs and arms in comparison to his height and torso. Arnold was a classic between 6'1 and 6'2 guy. The only thing to discuss is if he was 186 or 187
jervis said on 23/May/17
Brody looks taller an he is not even a strong 6ft imo.
luntis said on 23/May/17
those who think Arnold was over 6'05 must be under 5'9 haha. You guys are blind and do not really know how a 6'2" guy looks! Arnold was never over 183 cm which means he was 185 cm with his shoes on! Never over please! Wake up and see the reality!
luntis said on 23/May/17
We just have to wait for Rob change his height at least 1'5 cm (Arnold height)
Hoppy said on 23/May/17
There's a lot of people throwing their toys out of their prams here lately, insisting that ARNOLD WAS NEVER OVER 6 FOOT GODDAMMIT! You guys don't know for certain, and are closing your eyes to the huge amount of evidence that actually he almost certainly was. Pull in your bottom lip fellows and if you don't like what you're seeing here, don't keep on visiting.
luntis said on 22/May/17
Rob is 174 cm and at that height u can't be as good as a 5'11 6 foot guy to guess Arnold height even if we met him. That's why thare are a lot of actors listed taller than they really are. And if Arnold still is listed 187 cm in this page I'm going to start thinking this page is a joke. Again any claim over 6'05 for Arnold is the biggest joke i've heard
luntis said on 22/May/17
that's too short ali. I also think he was never 6'2 but a strong 5'11'5 6 foot no more! over 183 cm is a joke as willy4400 said

5'11 max for Arnold Peak WTF????? Too low, he was more about 6' to 6'1. I would guess something like 6'0.5". Now he is around 5'11 or even 5'10.75/5".

My cousin is a well known CBBF legend. She has met him many times before and after he started dating Maria Shriver as her mum had a place on MV and knew other Kennedys. I read through these comments and am totally bewildered by how much people buy PR hype. Arnold has never been taller than 180cm. He wears lifts and now has shrunk to 177cm. He was never tall just custom footwear and good posture.

Guys who think he was almost 6'2 in my opinion are telling a big joke! So you are telling me he was as tall and Andy Murray ? LOL (Tennis player who has claim his self 6'1 3/4 height) and I know he really is 187 cm because I met him ( I'm a spport reporter in Spain) Rafael Nadal is a weak 6 foot more or less my height maybe 1/4 inch shorter than me (182,8 cm). Nadal look exact same height as was Arnold in his peak who has never been over 183 cm!
willy4400 said on 18/May/17
I agree 6'1-6'1.5 I'm a great height gusser and I've been a movie fan my whole life. Arnold has never ben 187 cm in his life! His proportions are far away of 6'2 guys. People do not have any idea what is a real 6'2 guy barefoot. I guarantee 6'2 is very tall for man. I'm 6 foot barefoot and I am tall. People always think I'm at least 6'1. I used to see a lot of movies of Arnold and I know he was beteween 181-183 cm (peak height) at most. Today 178-179 cm. His militar hair cut maybe heels or even shoes could even looked him 6'1 any time. But he was never more than a strong 6 foot guy. Thank you! And I'M A BIG FAN!
Sven Bjarkensson said on 18/May/17
My dad knew him in his prime because he run heavy iron gym. 182cm is peak height he is shorter now. My dad is 190cm now and was 193cm and he towered over him and I can remember being very young child when he came home and was shocked how short he was and he noted his "special shoes".
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 17/May/17
This person has never been 187 or 188 cm in his life.
It was below the Reg Park (which was measured as 6'1, most likely in the morning).
Consequently, the growth of 6 feet at the peak is most plausible.
In addition, its proportions are not as great as those of 6'2 people.
Now he is lower than his son by an inch or slightly more (2.5-3 cm), about 180 cm will be equal to his height and not more than six feet at the peak. He did not lose more than 3 cm, because he will only be 70 years old.
Thank you.
BillisaLefty said on 17/May/17
Yeah, he seems the type to exaggerate his height. Probably a strong 5'1'' maybe 6' in his youth, strong 5'10'' today.
RisingForce said on 16/May/17
Arnold looked very close to Jimmy Fallon in that clip 3 years ago, certainly not an inch shorter: Click Here I think you've seen the still too often, but you need to see the video to judge. Height will vary as their posture changes in the video, but they're very close. If necessary, I can take my own still to prove my point. Arnold only looks 180 cm or a weak 5'11" max with St-Pierre, but I think he could be dropping height in his lower back looking at his posture, plus, I'm not sure what each of that footwear adds. Also, these were both around spring 2014 when Arnold was promoting Sabotage so he was looking 182 cm with Joe Manganiello or 6 feet when he had more footwear, and as I showed a while back, Arnold could still pass for a 6 footer at times with Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney more than a year later when Terminator Genisys came out. If Rob were to downgrade him, I'd say 181 cm would be better(and that also happens to be the exact guess with 301 votes), but I still think 5'11.5" is fine until Arnold's next film comes out and we can see if he's shrunk more during the promo appearances, but yes 5'11" flat is arguable, though I think he can straighten up past it.

Rob, what's it going to take for you to lower Arnold to at least 5'11" (even though I think 5'10.5" would be more accurate)?
Editor Rob: danimal, I'd be stunned if he was under 5ft 11 although 5ft 11 flat is very possible.

Even next to guys like 5'9"-5'10" George St. Pierre, 5'11"-5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon and the 5'11" barefoot bodybuilder Dennis Wolf? What will it take for you to lower him to 5'11" flat?
RisingForce said on 14/May/17
Canson, I was referring to Vince Basille measuring Arnold in '69, so yes, that is independent verification. Doesn't mean it's proof as we never saw the measurement, but it adds up well. I actually don't believe the daughter measurement in '08, unless it was in shoes as there's no way Arnold was still 6'1" barefoot. I don't take Barkley serious because he looks significantly taller outside of maybe 1 or 2 pictures, but why don't you take his word when he says 6'5.5"? Of course, he contradicts himself so he must be wrong about one. But the accusation I'm making people taller is ridiculous. Barkley is one of the few I argue is taller than his listing. In most cases these days, I'm actually arguing someone is a bit shorter. But let's keep our Barkley argument to the Barkley page and avoid discussing me personally as I'm irrelevant to the evidence I post. Incidentally, Barkley with looser posture had 5" on Arnold who was looking up and had at least 1 cm advantage with his cowboy boots at the 2007 all-star game.
Canson said on 14/May/17
@Rising Force: hmm where is there "independent verificati N" of an "evening" measurement? Other than him "claiming" his daughter measured or that he was measured. Why do you take his claim seriously but not Charles Barkley? Seems you only take the people who make themselves taller

NFL nerd said on 26/Apr/17
Throughout his career he has been reported to be either 5'10-5'11 or 6'1-6'2 depending on who you ask. I'm inclined to go for the middle. I think he was 6 foot in his heyday. He's certainly lost at least an inch so he's 5'11 at best today. Perhaps a bit more which makes sense to him occasionaly appearing 5'10 today.


Peak about 183 or 84, today 179 or 180, more like 179.
RisingForce said on 13/May/17
Since we have independent verification of a 6'1.5" evening measurement for Arnold, then I have to believe he was a strong 187 cm peak and I have to believe his 6'1.75" since it adds up perfectly as an early afternoon or lunch time height with the evening measurement. Jani, that's not completely impossible about his current height as he could still look nearly as tall as his 184-185 cm Terminator Genisys co-stars, but then he certainly doesn't look over 5'11.5" here with 5'10" max J.K. Simmons: Click Here And the difference with Jai Courtney seems greater here: Click Here If Courtney is roughly 6'2" in those shoes, Arnold looks like he may fall short of 6'1" in those boots, which would make him no more than 181 cm as he's really not looking taller than Bruce Willis does with Courtney, especially considering footwear. I think 181 cm is entirely possible now, but I'll stick to 5'11.5" now myself as Arnold could certainly look a bit shorter if he's not standing as well, or at a camera disadvantage. If you look at Arnold in Eraser, or even as late as 1998 looking about 3 inches taller than 5'10.5" George Clooney promoting Batman & Robin, Arnold may have been at or near his peak height until around the 6th day. That's when I noticed him looking shorter and if you see all the injuries and surgeries he had in the 2000s, it makes sense.

can you show me an example of 3 in shoes
this one is only inch Click Here:
can't imagine something thicker than this

Running shoes have 1.5"-2" heels. Also, MANY men's dress shoes have 2" heels. When I was a teen I once saw a men's dress shoe that had a 3" heel.



Dude what are you saying. Running shoes vary tremendously. Some barely ad a half inch. There's one running shoe on the market with 2 inches that's it. You been on here for over a decade but lately your posts have been bananas
Editor Rob: you need to go up to the Masai Barefoot / Skecher shape ups to get into 2 inch range.
RisingForce said on 12/May/17
I think there can be some confusion over heel height and how much a shoe actually adds. As for Cuban heels, yes the typical range can be less, but they can get up to a full 2" heel, like these: Click Here You really don't see men's shoes with a bigger external heel than that any more, that's about the limit, but you actually gain about a 1/4" less than the external heel. Depending on the overall thickness, a cowboy boot with a slightly smaller heel could give as much height. This is a 3" heel: Click Here You'll now only see women's boots that look like that. If you want a new man's boot like that, you have no choice but to make it custom made. Of course in the 70s, you had the platforms with the very thick front and really big heel. The only thing I'm leaving out is some of those goth boots, some of those are really big, front and back, but I don't know exactly how big. As for motorcycle boots, I have an old pair and I don't think I've measured mine, but I can tell you the heel is smaller than either of my Cuban heels or cowboy boots. Arnold's in Terminator don't look much different than my pair. I've never seen Arnold wear a shoe I thought actually gave 2" and I'm not even sure I've seen him with a full 2" external heel. Maybe you can find some event in the 70s he had them, but I can't think of a movie role. As for dress shoes, yeah those will usually be around an inch give or take. This can apply to both the heel and the gain. We're likely talking a quarter inch more or less at the most in either direction. Basketball sneakers will usually add somewhere between 1" and 1.5", 1.25" is pretty typical.

His posture hair and shoes could make him look a bit taller, but I i guarantee he is beteween 176/78 cm I'm and honest 6 foot guy (182'5 cm evening) and I was much taller he is 5'10 at most. Said Sergyvich from Australia is 5'9 but claim 5'11. In the fitness industry also rises heights a lot. Steve Cook claim 6'1 and he is 5'11 a bit shorter than me. Fake world fake height worlds man. everyone in the fitness industry adds at least 1 and and a half inch. Marc Fitt claims 5'10 and he is 5'8'5!
Jani said on 11/May/17
I think that his current height and peak height here right now are pretty accurate. I think no more than a 6 foot 1.5 inch peak maybe even slightly lower (6'1"). I would still argue that he might be slightly over 5'11.5" still (around 6 foot).
G 5'11 said on 10/May/17
Yeah would be cool if Rob listed Jeff Seid, I personally believe he is somewhere between 5'10 and 5'11. Definitely not a legit 6'0". He also lies about his weight and arm size by a bit. Next to Said Sergeyvich (aka Chest Brah) who claims 5'11 but might really be more 5'9/5'10 range. Click Here Here is with a 6'2 miscer. He's looking barely 5'10 in that one. However his brother zyzz was a legit 6'1 I believe nearly 6'2 as he said he got measured at 187cm. And looked that height with chest Brah.

Please don't overestimate the heel on cowboy or motorcycle boots. 2 inches on either of these would be unusual - it's normally a little less. Compare this to a regular dress shoe, which will be 1 to 1 and a half inches, and you'll see that the height advantage isn't as much as you might think. So don't let people put Arnold's height down to his Terminator boots (regular bike boots, I wear similar myself as I ride) or cowboy boots. At best they'd give him an inch on a man wearing very flat shoes.

Cowboyboots vary, I have a pair that give 1.8 inches but there are indeed types that give legit 2 inches or even a small fraction more. Its the biggest non-elevator footwear that you can get as a man. A typical cuban heel is 1.5 inches so a good bit less, most running sneakers are 1-1.4 inches (1.4 is huge ones like Nike air max). Timberland Boots are also around 1.5 inches.

Dress shoes can fall between 0.75-1.25 in, better models have a thicker insole. Under that you have converse type shoes that are lucky to give 0.5 inch most of the time.

So Arnie would have had an inch on alot of guys with his boots on, still with cowboyboots on he did look over 6'1" at his peak. He would have been around 6'3" with that kind of footwear, he certainly didnt look 4 in under 6'5" Tom Hoonan filming Last action Hero.

Correct, Michael. Cowboy boots for instance usually add 1.6"-1.7" while Converse sneakers would add almost exactly 1" less. My motorcycle boots add a bit less than either pair of my cowboy boots, I think. Some basketball sneakers are pretty close to that. Biggest heels you see for men, are 2" Cuban Heels, which I have, but I don't think actually add a full 2". The shoe almost always adds a bit less than the size of the herl due to the angle of your foot.

He's certainly lost at least an inch so he's 5'11 at best today. Perhaps a bit more which makes sense to him occasionaly appearing 5'10 today.

There is so much info on the web, I think once you go through it(reports of his height on both sides, his choice in footwear, shoe lifts...etc), the 6'1-6'2 narrative is just not believeable. In the bio up top we have 2 sub 6 foot claims. Even Roger Ebert claimed 5'10-5'11. No one has ever suggested he was 5'6. And I don't find the 5'10-11 camp to be haters. Celebrities typically embellish their height, same with bodybuilding.

He also shares the same build as me which can allow you to be perceived taller(short torso, long legs). Im certainly not a celebrity, but at 5'11 1/4 barefoot the shortest Ive ever been guessed at was 5'10. I'm usually guessed 5'11-6'1. Ive once been guessed 6'2. Ive never been guessed 3 inches shorter than my claimed height like Arnie has.

His current height needs to be updated. Even Rob once said on the Vin Diesel page that Arnie's nearer to 5ft11 these days.
opus said on 21/Apr/17
Arnies lost maybe 1" to 1.5" max. Any more height loss than that and it would be because of him either looking like a hunchback or he'd need a wheelchair. in my opinion, any height loss more than 3cm is going to be extremely significant, meaning obvious curvature of the spine etc. I'd put Arnies peak at 184-183cm meaning a shoe height of anywhere from 185-188cm.
Justin said on 21/Apr/17
Danimal is spot on Arnie was 187cm tall or 6ft1.5 peak evening height as Vince Basille measured him and why would be lie. Many examples of Arnies 6ft1.5 height in his bodybuilding days then lost a little say 1 cm during the 80s but now stands around the 5ft11 mark as I really think all the heavy lifting has affected his height and old age.

One thing worth bearing in mind is how the media love to downplay celebrity statures - just look at all the interviewers and journalists who delight in revealing that Stallone "is actually much shorter than you'd imagine". And yet I don't think I've ever read an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger in which the journalist has done this - they all peg him (still) at 6 foot, and 6 foot 2 in his younger days. Yes, they may have got these figures from official publicity, but none of them ever write about him being smaller than they'd expected. Only anonymous people slagging him off on internet forums.

------

True. The media especially loves to downplay the heights of celebrities who they suspect to wear lifts or elevator shoes. This is why the media constantly portrays Tom Cruise at a ridiculous 5ft3 or 5ft4, when in reality he's easily over 5ft7. While society in general often makes fun of short guys, the short guys who wear lifts will always be the ultimate laughingstock, since it makes them look insecure. For example, a 5ft6 guy who wears 3 inch lifts to make himself appear 5ft9 will be ridiculed much worse than a 5ft6 guy who doesn't, even though the one who wears lifts will look taller.
Jordan87 said on 20/Apr/17
In that Pic I think Arnold appears taller his hair is higher than Normal and if it is the T-2 Getup he has pretty thick soled Boots on. That's around 1992 So Arnie was early to mid 40's. I think he could broken the 6 foot mark there in that pic.

In The First Terminator Arnold was Noticeably heavier. He was around 235, But by 1992 he was maybe 205-210 I'm guessing.

One thing worth bearing in mind is how the media love to downplay celebrity statures - just look at all the interviewers and journalists who delight in revealing that Stallone "is actually much shorter than you'd imagine". And yet I don't think I've ever read an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger in which the journalist has done this - they all peg him (still) at 6 foot, and 6 foot 2 in his younger days. Yes, they may have got these figures from official publicity, but none of them ever write about him being smaller than they'd expected. Only anonymous people slagging him off on internet forums.

He's lost at least 3". He was 6'1.5"-6'1.75 and is 5'10.25"-5'10.5" today.

You're being pretty damned exact there for somebody who doesn't currently have Arnold under a tape measure.

Arnie didn' lose 3 inches, he lost about 2, meaning 5/6 centimetres, that is perfectly logic for a 70 year old men who trained as a beast for most of his life. My dad is the same age and was an even 6 in his youth. When I reached my height of 187 cm. in 1999, he was not so much shorter than me. Now he is clearly shorter at about 5'11. If my dad lost 3 centimetres from his forties through his seventies, it's understandable that Arnie lost 5/6. His torso really looks compressed nowdays. There is no doubt he was between 6'1 and 6'2 in his youth, about 186/187 cm. It is clear from measurements and comparisons with other actors and people. Rob's listing is simply spot on.
This would be the end of every discussion if no haters existed in this world.

He's lost at least 3". He was 6'1.5"-6'1.75 and is 5'10.25"-5'10.5" today.

What a joke of a claim. People like him devalue real 6ft'ers who honestly claim 6ft.

Arnie's comment makes most sense that
He was 6'1 peak and measured 6'1.75 in his gym footwear
He is 5'11.5 today and measured 6'0.5 in shoes

Lak,

More I look at it, minimum 5'11. I'd Give you a range of 5'11 to 6'0. My Guess, 5'11-1/2" for you.
