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.

Still think that he could be 5'11 today. Maybe a weak one, but 5'11.
Jordan87 said on 21/Feb/17
Lak,

I Said 5'11" I knew I would be Close. Arnold would give a taller impression b/c he arms were longer ( Long in general for his Height) whereas your arms seem a bit stubber. ( Henry Cavil).

Big arnie fan but the man was never 6 foot imo. There are just too many 5'10 claims going all the way back to the 80s. Also speculation of risers in his boots goes back to the 80s as well. No one ever claimed he was anywhere around 5'6.

At best I'll go 5'11.5 peak, 5'10.5 current.
Pierre said on 20/Feb/17
@Lak= imo Georges Clooney is a little under 5"11' barefoot even when he was in his 35/40 years.More about 5'10 than about 5"11' imo

Well he's clearly not 5'11.5 and his peak could not have been 6'1.5. I saw a picture of him with Bush and looked like max an inch taller. Bush is 5'9 maybe shorter now cause he's older. This would put Arnold at 5'10. He's really quite a average height guy don't know why he's so insecure because of his height. He was even taller than average at his peak at 6 feet so no need to lie about his height. Maybe that's why he got into bodybuilding like most bodybuilders do. They are insecure about themselves, their height and want to look bigger. They get bigger but still feel small so they don't ever stop. Also those drugs he used could have made him loose 2 inches cause nobody will lose 2 inches by naturally aging max 1 inch in that case. Trust me I know. Also saw a picture with Jimmy Fallon and him. Fallon looked at least 1 inch taller. And Fallon is 5'10.5 which would put arnold at 5'9.5. But I'm nice guy so I would say he's 5'10 probably 5'9.5 right before beddy time.
Bard said on 18/Feb/17
He's still at least 5'11, and definitely at least 6'1 peak.

That's because everyone expects Arnold to be a giant rather than just a (slightly) taller than average man.
Baks89 said on 13/Feb/17
My dad is 185cms 6'1 in the evenig and meet Arnold in the 70s when he came to Australia. He said he and Arnold were exactly the same height. So 186cms is the most i can see him being. The 6'1.75/187cms wouldve been an early morning measurement

Paul said on 13/Feb/17
I think you've a point here. Arnold is the kind of guy who hates anything slowing him down, and he's spoken in past interviews about his disgust of ageing. He's had many injuries and operations over the years, and rarely spoken about them. The guy even tried to keep his heart surgery secret from people closest to him.

Ian C said on 12/Feb/17
Yet more evidence that Arnold has bad legs: He recently appeared on a late night talk show, and he was wearing one of those plastic boot casts on one of his feet, and claiming that he had suffered an unspecified injury while working out. I suspect that he is badly arthritic (because he's on the cusp of 70) and can't bear to admit that he is now an old man with an old man's health problems. So he's trying to camouflage his mobility problems by claiming an injury.
Paul said on 13/Feb/17
I can't believe you guys are so fiercely determined over the matter of 2cm in the height of a man you have never even seen in real life. Let's face it, none of you KNOW. This is your opinion, and you all need to stop telling each other you're wrong, I'm right, he's this exact height to a quarter cm. Loosen up.

Arnie was more than 185 peak. He was in the 186-187 zone. Now, he isnt less than 181.

He's AT BEST 179cm today.
Tarinator said on 12/Feb/17
His peak height is 6'1" and his current height is 6'0" so he lost only 1 inch.

Even in the elevator shoes he is 1.5 inches lower than the increase of 185 people.

Arnold was taller than junior and shorter than senior.
Again 6'1" or 185 cm. max at peak, minimum 183 cm.
Now days anything btw 179 and 181 cm.
mister_lennon said on 10/Feb/17
He was 186-187 peak. Now, he is tin the 181-183 range. To post that he was only 6 at peak and 5'9 now is just absurd.

In the picture where they were shaking hands Bush looked taller.
RisingForce said on 9/Feb/17
Arnold was obviously taller than Bush Jr. back then and here's a 2002 video where you see Bruce Willis, who is said to be at least 5'11" and certainly no shorter than Bush: Click Here (Go to around 10:34) This is significant because Arnold was always noticeably taller than Bruce until The Expendables when the difference started getting much smaller. Here's an example from December 2006 Click Here Click Here I still believe Arnold's measurement was the best guess, but 6'1" flat is also possible, though anything less than 6'0.5" peak is crazy, especially since he was still at least 6 feet until around the time he returned to acting. His height loss has been quite remarkable, though and he was already no more than 5'11.5" a few years ago, so it wouldn't surprise me if he's closer to 5'11" flat by this point, though I haven't seen any comparisons since Terminator 5 and Expendables 3.
Peter 179cm said on 9/Feb/17
He looks ~1nch taller than Bush in those photos,look at their eyelevels.You can argue 182-183cm (5'11.75-6'0) 10 years ago but has rapidly gone down these days-i wouldn't be surprised if Arnie is shorter than Bush NOW but not much...Maybe about a cm.

Arnie could still look near 6 foot as late as 2010...using Chris Eubank as an example, who Rob met and pegged 5'10".

The pictures with Eubank definitely lend weight to Arnold being much taller than most folk would like to believe. Eubank is a very solid 5'10", with good posture too.
Orco said on 9/Feb/17
In all fairness to danimal, this is a page about Arnold's height, and not world hunger or economics. If you ever catch him on a forum dedicated to those subjects banging on about Arnold Schwarzenegger's height, then maybe you'd be right to call him out. Otherwise, let him speak.

I still think 5'11" flat would be a better shout as he can look under that mark even at times.

Ian C said on 7/Feb/17
Check out Arnold in the movie Maggie, which he made when he was 67. Almost all the shots of Arnold are taken from mid-chest up, which is ironic, since Arnold's career and appeal are based almost entirely on his physique. I suspect that he is crippled and cannot move for more than a few seconds without giving this away.

Schwarzenegger was an inch shorter than 5'11" George W. Bush in 2004. He always wore lifts in films and in real life.

He's 5'9.5" now at 70.

Yeah, he wore lifts onstage when competing (rolling eyes). Dude, you're just a troll. He was TALLER than Bush at THAT time. Stop inventing things. Some of these are from as late as 2007 when height loss was in full swing for Arnie.

I think its pretty clear he's hovering around the 5'11 mark at the minute. He can look lower than this at times but I think if he busted a gut he'd just about scrape a flat 5'11 in the early afternoon.

He seemed to hold his height pretty well until his mid 50's, around the time of Terminator 3 when he still looked a very solid 6 footer.

When he became governor he aged about 30-40 years in a very short time. His hair thinned, his skin began to wrinkle and his spine seemed to collapse in on itself. Same thing happened to Bill Clinton when he was in office. Those types of high stress jobs age a man well before his years (including height loss).

Measured? When was Reg measured? Provide your source. I've been a fan of bodybuilding my whole life and I've never ever seen a document stating his MEASURED height. He has been called both 6'1" and 6'2", just like Steve Reeves, but 0 reference to an actual measurement and btw, there are dozens of pics of Arnie and Reg from the late 60's where sometimes they look the same height, sometimes Reg looks taller and sometimes Arnie does, so one pic of them does not prove anything.

5'11.7" today? Nowhere near that. I don't get what people don't understand about 5'11"-5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon having noticeable height on Arnold, yet claim they are the same height or that Arnold is taller than him??? Even if Jimmy is 6'0" which he's not, Arnold is still UNDER 5'11"!!!

Sad but true. His entire upper torso (neck/back) has collapsed in on itself and his new hips are also shorter than what they used to be.

Wonder how tall he's nephew is cuz he's a good 2 inch taller then arnold

Maybe just over 6'0". Yes, I believe that Arnold is only marginally over 5'10" today.

I think True Lies is one instance where 6ft2 is arguable...
------------------

In the final scene he is eye to eye with Bill Paxton

As someone who is around Paxton's height Arnold did not measure up to him like a legit 6'2 guy does with me, in fact he looked shorter than 6'1 guys do
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 30/Jan/17
Hard to argue anything over 6'1 for him after seeing the pic of a young Arnold and Boyer Coe ..
He doesn't even look 6'1 there, and that's with shoes in.

Still I'm gonna guess a 6'0.5" to 6'1 prime ( 6'.5" + 1 fake inch = 6'1.5 his "proclaimed" height ? ) but I have never seen any evidence
of him being a barefeet 6'1.5 let alone 6'2 in his prime.

And nowadays 5'11 seems to be the consensus, a friend of mine met him on the Tour de France a few years ago and he was shocked by Arnold's height who he said was "not so tall, only 1m80"
S.J.H said on 30/Jan/17
My dad is 5'11 when he was young and he insist the two time when he met a young arnie he was no way over 6'0 and i told him he was listed at 6ft 1.5 and claim it he laugh and say he can only be this height in boots. Somehow i agree it and i think he look at most 5'11 nowadays
berta said on 30/Jan/17
yeah best evidence that arnold was not only 6 foot peak is the photo with jeff bridges. bit jeff hade shoes that weas only maybe 1,5 cm and looked 2,5 cm taller. jeff was little taller than arnold at peak. jeff 187 arnold 185,5-186

Criss.... That is some great footage from the movie Stay Hungry!!

Jeff Bridges is a legit 6'1.5 and Arnold is hanging with him height ways even though he is bare feet !

So to all the Harold types thinking that Arnie was like 5'10-5'11 in his prime it's over. This pretty much settles it for me.

Lol are work is done here.... Let's go over to the Stallone page there is much to do there!!

thanasis, the shoes of Jeff Bridges have 0.5 inches max, they are not thick and in the video, in one moment they are face to face and Jeff is up to 1.5 inch taller, I can estimate Arnold height at 6.1 (185 cm). Still it's a good height for a man. Arnold, a good actor, made my childhood better.

Very small height difference with Jeff Bridges in the video.The thing is that Bridges wears shoes and Arnie is barefoot.I guess 187 for both.
Revisionist said on 29/Jan/17
At the Australian GP, Hamilton made a joke about how he thought that Arnold would be taller.

There cannot be more than a 3.5 inch (very generous) difference between him and 5'7.5 Hamilton, who was wearing nearly flat racing shoes, while Arnold was in sneakers. Vettel is 5'8.5 and was, while leaning slightly, still within 2.5 inches of Arnold. Google for these images.

Arnold needs to be downgraded to 5'11 tops.

what about maybe giving him curretn height 181. cant really be mutch taller than that these days.
Peak 186
1995 185,5
2000 184,5
2005 183
2012 182
2017 181 and a couple mm I think he lost 1,5 cm really fast around 2002-2003 when he did terminator 3. because at that time he said he went upp in the middle of the night and trained for couple hours because he didnt have time to do it during the days.
Harris said on 27/Jan/17
Lol, how could someone describe a 6ft 1-2 range guy as 5ft 6!!?? Some people seem to constantly downgrade male celebrities heights due to perhaps jealousy or trolling, but in this case, to say someone is 7 to nearly 8 inches shorter than they actually are is ABSURD!!!!

Arnold Schwarzenegger is 5'10".
Johan said on 14/Jan/17
He has at least 2 inches there on that 5'10" guy without factoring in the shoe advantage.

I do think sometimes that he can look sub 6'1" peak. People who say 6'0.5" as a peak height aren't really that crazy. I still think he was 6'1" at peak though.
Heighcritique said on 14/Jan/17
He looks about 6'1" in shoes, so I estimate him at about 6'00" when he stands up straight. At peak over 6'1" is correct as old pictures of him show, and as bodybuilding competitions list him after measuring his height professionally. It is normal that he lost some height due to age. I had an uncle who was about 6'3" peak, and in his 90s he was 6' standing straight barefoot.
berta said on 14/Jan/17
peak 186 is a VERY VERY BIG CHANCE and now no taller than 181 he is 70 years old so i guess 5 cm loss is just littel more than average? average maybe 3,5? the guy have lifted very heavy and steroids on that so 5 cm is very big chanse that he have lost

Dantes 5'10", Arnold 5'11.75".

I'm not Arnie hater, by no means. I grow up with his movies, i think Arnie was best bb in history and his movies are amazing.
Plus i disagree with people that cut off too much height to Schwarzy and i believe that Arnold was a tall guy that never needed elevator shoes o something like that.
BUT he was never above a genuine 6 1.
My personal opinion is that Arnie was 183/184 cm., not less, not more and this particular height is best for body building and helped him.

Back in the 70s and 80s when magazine articles would go on about Arnold's clothing sizes and chase him up in stores around LA, they mentioned his 34" inside leg, and a 34 or 36" waist - pretty fair a tall and long-limbed fellow as he was. Let's jump to 2000, and if we look here Click Here we see his pants are 38" waist 33" leg. In 2012 Click Here he's wearing a 38" waist and 32" leg.

hambubger said on 6/Jan/17
Watching him in the new celebrity apprentice trailer it's clear that Arnold has lost significant height - I would think primarily in his knees and his lower back. I think it's interesting to try to figure out when he lost the height.

His peak of 6'1" or 1.85 was probably up to age 45 or so.
I think he lost 1" by 55 and another 1" by 65 and perhaps even another half an inch since then. I think he'd struggle to reach 5'11" in the morning now.

And let's not forget that Pumping Iron came along almost a decade before Arnold became a big name in Hollywood. The movie was filmed in 1975, and though he had minor roles in the intervening years, it wasn't until Conan in 1982 and Terminator in 1984 that Arnold started to become a 'star'.
JohnMc said on 4/Jan/17
GP said on 3/Jan/17
I was re-watching Pumping Iron the other day, since it's such a classic. I paid close attention to that Mike Katz and Arnie scene in the gym and Katz looked to be slightly taller. In the movie Katz was described as a 6'1" college football player. If you do some research, you will find that 6'1" listing was actually true. Off course In the bodybuilding world he was listed 6'2", even taller in some occasions. So that again proves what I have been saying all along. Arnold was 184cm, 6'0.25"-6'0.5" and in the entertainment industry they always add extra height for promotional reasons

You say Katz was listed as 6'1 and that this was actually true. Yet Arnold listed at 6'2" is "they always add extra height". This doesn't tally. If they added a couple of inches to Arnold's height, as you say was standard practice, then they'd have done the same to Katz and he'd have been 6'3". And a simple search for images on Google shows plenty of pictures where Arnold is at least Katz's height, or more.

men usually have 24-25 spinal discs, if you just lose a mm/disc with age you lose an inch in height.

so stressing the body with smoking, heavy steroid abuse and heavy weightlifting
its not unbelievable to lose 5-7 cm till near 70.
Johan said on 24/Dec/16
Personally I would shave a half inch off both his peak and current height.

For sure his current height as he can indeed look under 5'11" at times with bad posture. Its been a few years since he looked near 6' without generous footwear.

Arnold certainly does look smaller on the second batch of pictures, but he's still clearly taller than Dennis Wolf.

I'd still say he's 5'11 these days, out of shoes. But Christ he looks tall next to Nasser in that very first picture - there's no way that fellow could've been 5'11.5"

The reason Arnold's upper body looks 'compressed' is simple. Look back at photos of him in his bodybuilding prime - as a tall man he is/was very long-limbed. Usually the way with tall people - all the height comes from the legs. So Arnold's torso was never particularly lengthy. Now he's pushing 70, his middle has, quite naturally, thickened - hence the illusion of being 'compressed'. I agree with the overall opinion here - he's probably only dropped a couple of inches, from 6'1 - 5'11.

Peak: 6'1 1/2"
Today: 5'11 1/2"

He's still not much shorter than his son who was 184 CM in person.
MJKoP said on 17/Dec/16
No way, Danimal. He's still comfortably over 5'11".
Danimal said on 16/Dec/16
Arnold's upper body looking SO compressed and you can see his hips are short too (probably from his hip replacement). 5'10" and change today.

"Arnold Schwarzenegger Height:"

peak: 6'1.25 (186cm)
today: 5'11.5 (181.6cm)"

Can't argue with that. Peak was 6'1", definitely 5'11" now. 2 inches loss by late 60s is completely believable. I think Trump was also 6'3" peak and now 6'1" (and with bad posture).

Ain't no way Sergio was 5'8. Look at the man's proportions for heaven's sake. He was known in his time as a big guy, all round.

Sergio was 5'9"-5'10" PEAK. Lifetime bodybuilding (and strongman) fan here.

@Cobra - The photo with Kerry Von Erich, angles my boy, angles...........it is pretty obvious he is closer to the camera by a considerable distance.

I don't believe anyone can shrink that much. 5cm is way too much for a height loss giving his health history. the man never had problems with his legs or back, so it's impossible that 5cm have been lost since his 30's.
Also, today he doesn't look much above 5'11, so I think he was 6ft when he was young, because losing 2cm is much more blievable than 5. Also, in the 70's everyone was shorter, so Arnold could pass as almost 190cm unnoticed

I think he was a true 6'1 1/2" peak height. He definitely looks under 6' now.
jervis said on 11/Dec/16
I don't think Arnold ever claimed 6ft3,I also detect a little bit of bitterness in Sorbo's comment.
Yas said on 11/Dec/16
By peak arnold, you mean Arnold in his biggest lifts.
Dmeyer said on 10/Dec/16
Rob wath is more likely today at night 5 ft 11/180 5'11,25/181 or 5'11,5/181,5 , he can pull off 5 ft 11,5-11,75 at times lately other times 5 ft 11
Editor Rob: Dmeyer, I think 11.25-.5 today is a good possibility.

If there ever was a clear-cut, textbook example of a legit 6'2"(1.88m) man, it would be peak Arnold. He was strapping, even when barefoot.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 9/Dec/16
peak 185-186cm
today 179-180cm

a bit more than normal heightloss, but smoking, taking heavy roids and lifting weights that much ...

Great post its the smoking gun imo. Arnie 6-2"???? Never ever ever.

There's a Shawn Ray interview somewhere about when he first met Sergio Oliva. Shawn Ray was well known as a 5'7" "giant killer" in bodybuilding. By this point Sergio was in his late 40s or even 50s, and Shawn mentions being surprised that he was almost as tall as this man he'd considered a mythological giant all these years. So therefore, well into middle age Sergio must have still been a couple of inches taller. Shawn himself listed Oliva's stats on a tribute on a message board somewhere and put him at 5'11 (presumably when younger). I'd always heard and read he was 5'10 myself and inclined to believe it.
James said on 7/Dec/16
Sergio Olivia was 5'7.5" at his peak.
D Morse said on 7/Dec/16
I was wearing shoes myself, Doc, let's not forget that! The ones I had on that day have a 1.25 heel. Didn't notice Arnold's footwear (I was too close and wouldn't have thought of it anyway) but I'd have guessed he was at least my height overall.
Anon said on 6/Dec/16
Peak 6'1.5''. Seemed to lose height in his early 40's.
Doc 182cm said on 6/Dec/16
I examined the photos of him when he was recently in London Rob and I think he is 178.5cm 5ft 10 1/4 in without shoes; just look at the heel rim of his footwear there is at least 3cm on outside and perhaps 1cm on the inside giving him a perceived height of 182.4cm with shoes just a shade under 6ft 183cm like D Morse who recently saw him in London noted.

Another proof that the billed height is correct: in pictures with Bruce Willis (who was 182-183 cm.) in the early nineties, Arnold was clearly taller, over an inch more. That puts him around 187. In recent pictures he is almost even with Bruce, since Arnold lost 5-6 cm and Willis around 1 or 2. So Willis was 182-183 and Arnold 186-187 when they were at their peak. Nowdays maybe Bruce is 180 and Arnold 181-182.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sayonara, Suckers. It's been a blast (and, frankly, hilarious fun) tweaking and tormenting the celebrity sycophants and fanboys that flock to this page . From the idolaters and groupies to the professional fluffer and midget that runs the site. Bon Voyage. And if you actually believe Arnie was ever six foot two or, 'peak' (please) six foot one and one-half, you are at best naí¯ve and, at worst, well, not terrible bright. Ditto the current five foot eleven and one-half malarkey. ROTFL. In a few more years, you'll figure it out. Harold has left the building.
