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.

Lou Ferrigno next to listed 6"5.5'/6"6' Dick Durock in the first picture and Arnold next to Lou in the picture number two=
Imo Lou is around 6"3'range if Dick is really 6"6' by this picture.Imo Arnold is around 6"0' if Lou is around 6"3'.The guy next to Arnold is Robby Robinson listed 5"7',ok he's closer to the camera=Arnold never look 6"2' here imo even with a better posture(there are just hypothesis)

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.

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.

Let me add that was early last year, rather than many years back, so I can well believe his 'peak' height was 6'1 or 2.
Jackson said on 24/Apr/17
I met Arnold, briefly, after one of his speaking engagements in the UK. He's certainly not as short as some people like to think - I'd say a good 6 foot in his shoes (which looked regular).

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.
jervis said on 21/Apr/17
Leo2001.in those pics he looks about 184 which is arguably his peak height IMO
Michael said on 21/Apr/17
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lak,

Arnold is 5'10- 5'10- 3/4 nowdays. Taller in his prime.

As Far as your height, based on the Pic, my first thought for you is right under the 6 foot mark. 5'11 is my Guess.

RisingForce said on 13/Apr/17
Jordan87, I disagree. Rob at a solid 5'8" is about an inch below Joe's mouth, while Arnie is just below Joe's eyes, that's why I guessed just under 6 feet (i.e., 182 cm) 5'10" is below Joe's nose, while Arnold is comfortably above it. Arnold doesn't have much hair any more so that's why I see him just below Joe's eyes, but when Arnold has better posture and possibly a bit more footwear, he at least reaches Joe's eye: Click Here As for height loss, I think Arnold has lost a solid 2", maybe slightly more.
GP said on 13/Apr/17
Bodybuilding doesn't cause 3" height loss. Ferrigno, Columbu, etc. didn't lose 3" of height. They did the same stuff as Arnold did. Logically it would make sense for Lou to lose the most height since he was taller but that's not the case. Lou is 6'2" nowadays and was most likely 6'3" + during prime. He always had 3" on Arnold. Now if Arnold had some serious health condition like Parkinson's or had a back surgery then you could maybe make an argument that he has lost lot of height. Isn't it interesting that when Arnold became governor, all of a sudden everyone started noticing that he wasn't 6'2" or near that? is it possible that he didn't have the movie magic to make him appear taller than he was? Arnold was a tall man during the 60's since that generation wasn't as tall as nowadays. Even when he got into movies, it was a different time when height wasn't an issue with studios so Arnold was the tall and massive guy.
Regarding Basille's claim, i personally don't believe him since that man has lied numerous times and fabricated lot of stories which anyone can search on the net. Van Damme's mother measured him and he yelled out 177 for everyone to hear loud and clear. Rob upgraded him immediately after than but then realized that was far off, so he went back down. There is only a small percentage of celebrities that tell the truth about their height and Arnold is no exception.
Jordan87 said on 13/Apr/17
Danimal,

I am by no means An Arnold Hater and my Favorite Sci-FI Flick of All time is : Terminator ( 1984), but you really think Arnold lost 3" of height? I'm not with the crowd that think he was 5'10, but 3" is alot of height to shrink. Even Arnold himself claims he only lost 1-1/4" ( See above comments Rob Posted about him Saying he dropped from 6'1- 3/4 to 6'0.5")

IMO I have Arnold with Big Joe Manganiello at age 66 at 5'10-3/4"( He is actually a little more than an inch under Joe's Eye level which is 6'0 in Rob's Picture with Him- Proven). In His heyday I could see 6'0- 1/2. Not quite 6'1- 3/4 though.

LEO: When you post pictures of Arnold with other celebrities, provide YEARS and not just pictures. Arnold has lost 3" in height from his peak, so we need a point of reference at to what time frame those picture comparisons are from. THANK YOU.
Chubby said on 12/Apr/17
Arnold sure hangs around a lot of big guys! Joe Manganiello, Ralf Moeller etc. Those guys are giants. It's no wonder he often looks dwarfed! I think he's about 5'11 now, at best. But I sure believe 6'1 years back.

Rising Force,

Basically Arnold looks about 5'10.5" In your Pictures. His Head is a little under an Inch Under Joe's eye Level, which is about 6'0 in his picture with Rob. Arnold pulls off Solid 5'10.5" With Joe ( Proven Minimum 6'4-1/2") and they have the same footwear.

To me this Eliminates Arnold being a 5'10.5" In his prime since he pulls off this height in his mid 60's. He was certainly taller than That in his prime.

RisingForce said on 6/Apr/17
6'1.5" was his evening height at peak, at least according to his measurement, which adds up with his 6'1.75" claim, which was his legit height, imo. Carl Weathers is still close to 6'1", around 6'0.75" so probably a 6'1.25" guy at peak and Arnold was a bit taller. Arnold still looked about 3" taller than a 5'10.5" Clooney in the late 90's and always had 2" on 5'11.5" Bruce Willis in the 90's. He was also taller than 6'1" Tom Arnold in True Lies. As for current, the shortest he looked was a weak 5'11" or more 5'10.75" with Georges St-Pierre and 5'11" max with Jimmy Fallon, but both those were in 2014, the same year Arnold still looked 182 cm at only 5" shorter than 6'4.75" Joe Manganiello in similar footwear: Click Here And those pics from the Terminator premiere were Arnold was still looking around 6 feet was a year later. I think he shrunk to around 182 cm sometime during the end of his 2nd term as Governor or when he was just returning to movies and has basically stayed in that 182 range at least through his last movie.

--------

Triple H is closer to 186.5cm or 6ft1.5 in recent years, he has lost a bit of height. On top of that, Arnold is closer to the camera, giving him an advantage. If both stood at the same distance, Arnold would not look over 180cm.

Agree with Christian give maybe sans 1/4" prime. He was weak 6'1/strong 6' prime up to a full 6'1. I have a relative who measured around 6'1 barefoot (was at worst weak 6'1") who was identical when he met him. He was not "only" 5'11" peak

Arnold clearly has worn shoe lifts and big boots his entire public life. He is a shade over 5'10" Sigourney Weaver herself is taller than Arnold barefoot. This is obvious because another serial lift user Sylvester Stallone is literally the same height in some photos of the pair proving they both use lifts and are similar heights not separated by 4 inches minimum. His height is exaggerated he was a shade under 6ft peak height. His biceps were also (NEVER 22 inches but 19 inches). His peak height was 5ft 11.75in with Lou Ferrigno 6ft 2 inches real height.

Absolutely 5'11

Arnie does have a higher leg to torso ratio giving him the illusion of more height. But there are far to many early pictures of him with no footwear "assistance" that puts him FAR away from the 6'2 or even 6'1 claims.
GP said on 3/Apr/17
Lot of the believers of 6'1"-6'2" Arnold should watch The Running Man. Arnold was about 4" shorter than Yaphet Kotto who was 6'4". Throughout the entire movie they used lot of the camera angles to minimize the difference but there are some scenes where you can see them head to toe and Arnold looking about 4" shorter. I have always believed that he was 184cm and the measurements were in shoes.

I will repeat what I said below, Arnold had his arms measured at 19 in 7/8s cold. So almost 20 inches without a pump.

In competition he would have been at 21 inches or thereabouts, that is believeable.

That seems right, if I compare to my arms - just under 18" cold and 18.75" pumped - I´m nowhere near Arnies arms
21-22" pumped is what his arms looked at his biggest.

I honestly don't believe Arnie was ever over 6ft. Body building exaggerates as much as pro wrestling does for height/weight. A little over 5'10 is probably accurate.

Jackson said on 10/Mar/17
definitely 5'10 nowadays, and no one loses 3.5 inches in a lifetime, he was never 6ft1.5

finally people are opening their eyes.

Rob, you have met "ultimate warrior", even if the pic is disappeared. You said he was clearly far from a legit 6'3". And your 6'1.5" estimate is a little bit generous for ultimate warrior.

Here a pic with arnold with ultimate warrior, both were young:Click Here

So if warrior was in the 6'1" range, arnold looks 5'11."-6ft, nothing more

arnold schw was wax 5'11.5"-6ft(180-183cm)tall peak barefoot. this 6'1.5"- 6'2", just an inch shorter than a legit 6'3" is a pure fake.

Sharon Mcvey said on 31/Mar/17
I personally helped clear Arnold through U.S Customs when he first moved to California, he is not as tall as he wants some to believe. Possibly 5'10 to 5'11.
With no knowledge of Mr. Universe, I was amazed on his stature, I expected someone a lot taller. Fully clothed it's apparent he was not flexing for me.
RisingForce said on 31/Mar/17
LOL, do some hate Arnold so much that they think his arms were only 18"? Click Here As for his height, it's more than possible that Arnold WAS 6'1.75" midday and 6'1.5" evening in 1969, but only 185-186 cm 15-20 years later when he was in his late 30s/early 40s. Given Arnold's profession, a 1 cm loss by that age wouldn't be impossible. Although he could still look taller such as with Carl Weathers, but the point is, we don't know Arnold was still at his peak height in the mid to late 80's.
mister_lennon said on 31/Mar/17
Pierre,for sure. Both boyle and lloyd lost some heigth in the 80s. Boyle looked 6'2 peak and a strong 6'1 in the 80s. Lloyd, strong 6 at peak and weak 6 in the 80s. In that movie the dream team, boyle looked a little bit taller than lloyd.
BenRichards said on 30/Mar/17
Franco Columbu had 18 inch arms, but you need to remember he was only 5ft3, so 18 inch arms on a person of this height would look huge, whereas on a person of 6ft it would not look as impressive.
Arnold had 20+ inch arms in his prime no doubt about it.

James Dingle !!! Seriously!! My arms are 18 inches and they didn't look even close to his arms !!! I watched twins last night and for the first time arnie looks under 6'2 in his youth maybe 6'1 at best , also in the 6th day he was maybe only 6ft

Agree with Lak on the height. My arms are 17" and they look like string compared to Arnold's - even in his action movies where he'd obviously lost some serious size from his competition days (check him out in the very early 70s - even by Pumping Iron he was much lighter). I once measured a guy who had 21" arms, but he was a chubby tubster, more a powerlifter than bodybuilder. But he was just over 6 foot tall, and from looking at the size of his arms I could easily believe that 70s Arnold had 21" when he was in peak form.
Pierre said on 28/Mar/17

Nah more like 20 inches or slightly more pumped, he got measured at one point 19in 7/8s cold.

Sergio Olivia on the other hand got measured at 20 inches 1/8 cold.

I agree though with the 22-23 inches range...thats the size of a human head, very very rare to see that.
Thomas Veil said on 27/Mar/17
I honestly don't believe Arnie was ever over 6ft. Body building exaggerates as much as pro wrestling does for height/weight.

A little over 5'10 is probably accurate.

You're obviously not a bodybuilder, James. 19" arms, big as they are, are pretty common around the gym. If you'd seen them, and compare to Arnold's pictures at his peak form, you'd know for sure he wa smuch bigger. Guy's arms were freaky large, and thick - well over 20".

Juan please...Red Heat is a masterpiece of the golden action movie era and Arnold was not a Russian spy in that movie :-D
Anyway Boyle was 189 cm., Arnold didn't look much shorter, putting him at 6'1.5 Click Here
James Belushi is (was) around 5'11, 180 cm., maybe a strong one, and Arnold looked 2 inches tall throughout the movie. This puts Arnold exactly at 187 cm that is a strong 6'1 Click Here
I mean that almost every evidence puts Arnold between 6'1 and 6'2 in his youth. There is no way his height was any different from 186 to 187 cm.

Rob,why don't you considere the ''bust a gut'' a legit measurument ? In my view is legit since the person is barefoot and is forcing the spine to stay in the better angulation and position.
Editor Rob:it is a measurement, as is a standing on tip-toes measurement.

My belief is to stand tall and be able to hold that posture for more than 10 seconds.
Juan Aulet said on 24/Mar/17
Peter Boyle is 6'2 and in a movie with Arnold, where Arnold plays a Russian spy and Peter Boyle plays an american detective, when they're talking to each other Alnold is looking up to Peter Boyle. So Arnold Swasenneger is about 5'11.5

Hey Rob, do you think it's possible that 6'1.5" bodybuilder measurement for Arnie was in sneakers (which would add about an inch?) I was in sports in my teens, and anytime I went in for a physical, not ONCE was I ever asked to remove my tennis shoes. That would've made Arnie about 6'0.5" peak height barefoot..??
Editor Rob: it is possible Arnie did the old bust a gut height measurement to hit 6ft 1.5, but I don't think it was in sneakers.

Jervis it's a common pratice to downgrade anybody whose height can be safely related to Arnold. I think anything under 186 is trolling but still I can talk with people saying he was 185 (6'1). That's my limit, seriously. Let's face feeding the trolls is simply useless.

Jai Courtney is the 6'0.75" Rob gives him, Arnold could still look near 6 feet in comparison to him in 2015: Click Here Courtney had roughly 1.5" on Bruce Willis in 2013. Oddly, Arnold could also still look close to Jason Clarke who Rob has 6'1": Click Here but he could look 5'11.5" max with 5'10" J.K. Simmons: Click Here and he'd only look 5'11.5" if Stallone was still a weak 5'9": Click Here But since I think Stallone was 5'8.5" max by this time, Arnold looks more 5'11" flat. I guess his varying height is a mix of posture and Arnold sometimes wearing boots with pretty big heels. Does it look like he's lost any more height in these last couple of years?

Danimal said on 20/Mar/17
How tall do you think he is today in 2017 at 70 years old? I don't seem him above 5'10.5" today.

I'd have to see good comparisons(full body shots) of Arnold in 2017 among others with known heights before I could guess since it's been almost 2 years so he could have easily shrunk more since Terminator Genisys. Even though my estimate was 5'11.5", I had seen him look as short as 5'10.75" and I could see closer to 5'11" flat as possible.
themthen said on 20/Mar/17
I watched Arnold classical music, but Cédric McMillan is a stoop. Arnold wore shoes. There will be usually heels approximately 3cm. Cedric was a bare foot.
Arnold looked high 2cm.
This meaning expects that the shoes of Arnold have the heel of 5cm - 7cm.
Cedric is 185cm. When 185cm equalled Arnold with a stoop, I rise. Because Arnold is 182cm. The bare foot of Arnold is 182cm.
There would be the peak of Arnold more than 185cm.

However, is it around 183cm when I look at the site of this Russian? There are not many Haney and differences.

Has he lost more height since the last Terminator since I haven't really seen a good comparison since that time, but I'd have said 5'11.5" was right then, a height I believe he was down to by the Expendables 2 and Last Stand in 2012-2013. At his peak, he often looked tall enough for me to believe his claim of 6'1.75" (around noon) and Basille's 6'1.5" evening measurement, but 185-186 cm is arguable too. Anything below 184 cm peak is trolling.

How tall do you think he is today in 2017 at 70 years old? I don't seem him above 5'10.5" today.

AlexItaly said on 18/Mar/17
Arnold was on level with 6'1.5 Bridges at his prime, a little taller than 6'1 Weathers and 2 inches shorter than weak 6'4 Ferrigno. So it is pretty clear he was a weak 6'2 at 187 and maybe 186 at night. Now he has shrunk, it is evident, and must be around 182. This the truth and is pretty much a no brainer. All the hype about his height is made up by haters.

Ian C said on 14/Mar/17
Well, Gregory, I do respect anyone who becomes a movie star, because that is a difficult thing to do, and there is no denying Arnold's achievements in that regard. He is also said to be a nice man, which is admirable right there. But watching him try to approximate human speech in a movie is painful. There really is no other movie actor I can think of who is consistently as bad. John Wayne, for example, was limited to playing the same character over and over, but it was an appealing character and he did it well. When you watch Wayne do his standard hero guy you never get the impression that it's just a man reciting dialogue. But you always do with Arnold. He's like a man who can't quite hit any notes singing a song. You can tell what he means, but it's still terrible.

Arnold always looks self-conscious, even in still photographs. He even looked ill at ease when he was doing posing routines as a bodybuilder. My own guess, admittedly whimsical, is that if your job involves looking at yourself in the mirror you develop an unhealthy inability to stop thinking about yourself long enough to interact normally and comfortably with anyone else. Notice, for example, how strained and uncomfortable Melania Trump always looks. She's obsessed with how she looks, and can't just shuck the habit of always thinking about her appearance. Well that's what Arnold is like.

I have to say, my uncle is a square, even by police standards. I would take his word over a major majority. Even if I just knew him and he wasn't my uncle.

Get a load of how Arnold is shot in the movie Escape Plan. Almost exclusively from the chest up. You see no more of Arnold in that movie than you see of a television news anchor reading the news from behind a desk. Arnold has a fight scene that is edited so that you can't see his body. It's as if he were Franklin Roosevelt in 1936, and steps were being taken to conceal that he was a paraplegic.

Why am I so (morbidly and maliciously) interested in Arnold's physical decrepitude? Part of it is a nasty schadenfreude where I'm delighted that a man who once so physically superior has now been ruined by age, but it's also the product of a visceral dislike of bodybuilding, in which men who are already physically superior deliberately torture their bodies to produce a grotesquely unnatural appearance that is essentially unhealthy, and all for the sake of a strange and slightly crazy vanity.

And besides, Arnold Schwarzenegger was always an amateurishly inept actor, who never read a line of dialogue in a realistic human tone in his life. It annoys me that a man who can't act became a major movie star. It's the same annoyance I feel that Madonna Ciccone was a successful musician.

Click Here Even with his strongest posture, Arnold cannot measure up to then 6'1.5 Bridges.
Granted, you cannot see their footwear on these ones.
However...
Look at 0:49 from this video Click Here You can clearly see them from head to toe- Jeff wearing some Converse-styled sneakers, Arnie barefoot - Bridges edges Arnold by almost 1 inch, which means, with 0.5in (my estimate) footwear Arnold was no more than 6'1 at his prime.
Smurfs said on 10/Mar/17
I still say Arnold was 6'1" way back when. But there's no doubting he's dropped enough since then for his height to surprise people. Let's say he's 5'11 now (at best). Combined with poor posture - as he often displays - and his 'bigger than life' image, people are surprised to find he doesn't tower over them. I think what we have here is a fairly significant height loss working with people's preconceived notions. He's a little more than average height.

I stood next to him on numerous occasions in the late 1970s. My guess is that he was about 6'1". I doubt if I could be off by more than an inch, so I find claims that he was 6'3" or 5'10" to both be out of the question.

In Stay Hungry there is a clear full-body shot of a barefoot Arnold standing next to Jeff Bridges who is wearing shoes. Arnold is barely shorter than Jeff, who is 6'1" and would be 6'2" or more in shoes. Thus we can conclude that Arnold was indeed around 6'1" in his youth.

You can tell just by looking at Arnold's proportions today that his torso is collapsing into itself, his arms and legs look too long for his body.
You're absolutely right, look in this pic how longe are his armes comparing to his body

The man is a legend. He's had more success as an actor and more money than most people can dream of. Who gives a shigoogle whether he's 6 foot 2 or 5 foot 1!!!
josh jeffords said on 26/Feb/17
Not sure if I posted here before but some pretty fun claims on here.
Anything from an average Arnie to obvious retouched and fake photos making him look even bigger.
Everybody take a breath he competed and performed "Barefoot" there is no way he was anything less than 6 1 prime.
Next he has shrunk almost disturbingly height and size due to over training and then not at all.
The guy is very old two decades past 50 even Sean C, Moore and Brosnan dropped noticeably after 60.
He looks as listed now last I saw, do not compare to sly or mel they get taller with age dubiously so...
The fact is he is over 5 10 now and was never over 6 2 the most likely is exactly as listed.
firecracker said on 25/Feb/17
serious people know he was never 6'1.5"(187cm). Pure fake. 6'1.5" is just an inch and half shorter than 6'3". ahahah, you really don't know how tall is a legit 6'3" (190cm). he looked clearly taller than most bodybuilders of his era (excluding lou ferrigno) because most of them were 5'5"-5'8"(165-173cm). Arnold schwarzenegger was max 5'11.5"(182cm) barefoot, nothing more. And today he struggles with 5'10"(177cm)

Click Here - Click Here - Click Here

At least 50% of people are actually 2 inches shorter than their claimed height. arnold claimed 6'1.5"(187cm) but he was 5'11.5"(182cm). lou ferrigno claimed a fake 6'4"(193cm), but he was 6'2"(188cm). Stallone claimed a fake 5'9"(175cm), but he was 5'7"(170cm). There is a fake world and a real world.
berta said on 24/Feb/17
any cliams that he was under 184 is ridiculous and also claims 188+ its safe to say he was somewhere in the 184,5-187 range with biggest chanse that he was somewhere in the 185,5-186 range

Jordan87 said on 21/Feb/17

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.

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.

That's because everyone expects Arnold to be a giant rather than just a (slightly) taller than average man.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
