How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Height

5ft 11.5in (181.6 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1.5in (186.7 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.

@Danimal: Arnold in shoes looks about an inch taller than Wolf barefoot, sometimes more, sometimes a bit less. So how is it clear he'd be shorter? Dress shoes add about an inch give or take a fraction. All that shows is Arnold is close in height with a 5'11" man. How they'd look exactly both barefoot or both in shoes would tell us better what the exact difference is there, but I don't see Arnold shorter.

i've seen several other stills from Predator where the team is in the jungle... Arnold appears to be taller than Carl Weathers by 1 or even 2 cm, it seems. I don't know if it's legit or not but it's what the pics show. So it's very unlikely that Arnold was under 186 or 187 cm tall. Very unlikely.

@Barry Fl The Vince Basille measurement is less than a full legit source. One mans word??? Pictures tell me that he was not much over 6-0". Around 60-05" in truth.
Barry Fl said on 15/Aug/17
arnold looked much taller than dennis i think more than 1 inch even if he was barefeet he will be taller

A lot of people - folk who've met him/fellow competitors/bodybuilding fans etc - say Dennis Wolf seems even taller than 5'11. I don't know about that, but it seems that he's a pretty solid 5'11 at least. So there's a good chance Arnold is still at least that height (out of shoes).

I believe he started losing height pretty early. By 1990 he seemed to have lost some height and was down to 6'1.00" even or perhaps as low as 6'00.50".

Leave it out Kiko, this is a discussion site, not a playground. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on the subject here (Arnold's height), and people's opinions don't have to be the same as yours. That's life. Let's not resort to juvenile insults when people think differently to you.

Lou F was 6-3". Arnie was a shade over 6-0". Now 5-10 to a max 5-11". In his boots like in Terminator etc he was a 6-2" guy,in boots remember.

Trouble is Jim, his bodybuilding stats and early measurements - and the oft-quoted Vince Basille measurement - were not taken in his Terminator boots.

I've never seen a ruder hypocrite on this site(even before 2010!) Calling tallish98 blind and unintelligent when you can't even spell "obvious" or punctuate properly? And that all goes without even mentioning your claim of Arnie obvieusly(sic) never hitting 6'1". I guess since "we" said that several times, it must be true, right?? I'll just let anyone with an above-marginal level of functioning neuron-activity judge for themselves who the smart guys are.

As far as I can remember Arnold was listed 186cm in official bodybuilding records. Conversion from metric to imperial 186cm rounds up to 6ft2. Nowadays 180cm.
Slim 182 cm said on 11/Aug/17
His listing is good, guys.
I do think Arnold was 186/187 in his glory days,
It's just how he looked in his films and his classic documentary.

Peculiar, how Stallone's lack of height is far over-exaggerated, while the exact same can be said of Arnold's abundance of height. I was watching two random YouTube videos the other day. One was a Nostalgia Critic(6 foot guy) review, where he described Arnold as an "EIGHT foot Austrian"....the other was Bill Burr's infamous rant about Philadelphia(my home town), where he referred to Sly a "THREE foot Italian". LOL

Ha ha ha, yeah that's exactly the trouble. These guys are just a little either side of average height range. No extremes involved. I think in younger days Arnold probably cleared 6'1 and is now 5'11 at best. Sly? Maybe 5'10 if he stood up straight and over 5'8 now.

I think this journalist hits the nail on the head:"Because Schwarzenegger is always photographed in his movies from a low angle, standing tall against a pale blue sky (or an exploding fireball), you expect him to be far bigger than he really is--6 foot 2, 215 pounds. In person, he looks almost normal, a bit larger and more muscular than average, but otherwise a regular guy"


This needs to be added to the top of the page, because it's 100% spot-on, IMO. 6'2" is tall, but still a very regular height; one where you won't stand out or be stared at in public. Studios shot Arnold to appear as an seven foot giant and when fans see a guy who is tall, but not shockingly enormous IRL, they automatically think he's only an average-ish height, or 5'10" to 6'0" max in the 80s and 90s.

This is a good point. I posted similar articles on the Stallone page as well where numerous newspapers were surprised to learn Sly was "only" 5'10" instead of the six-footer they thought he looked onscreen. Of course, Sly was maybe 5'9" and certainly not 5'10" and Arnold was not a full 6'2" except in the morning, but shorter than expected is all relative. I remember talking about the film twins with someone years ago and this person mentioned the contrast between Devito(I don't remember if they estimated his height) but they then mentioned Arnold at 6'6"! I told him Arnold was nowhere near 6'6", but that had been his impression from films like the first Terminator and in fairness, Arnold looked enormous in the club scene. His physique alone made people think of him as nowhere near normal human size.

Canson you are full right. Totally agree. Ferrrino was almost 3 inches taller than Arnold and he was 6'3 not 6'5(well in the fake marketing insdustry) today 6'2.5 just look at him with Rob it's the proof he was 6'3. So Arnold clearly was a strong 6 footer 6'0.5- 0'75 maxx
Canson said on 7/Aug/17
Likely 184-185 peak could've been a full 6'1" but not more

Was never over a full 6'1" max

I think that's why people are sometimes surprised that Sly isn't as small as they expect him to be - he's got this huge reputation for being 'short' when actually he isn't, never was. Just not as big as his image!
Slim 182 cm said on 7/Aug/17
Okay m, but I've ruled out 185 and 188 impossible.

I'd recommend arguing 186 or 187 for those who are interested.
Kiko said on 7/Aug/17
you just have to take down 2 cm on this celebheight listed to know the real height . Fake or marketing or hollywood heights is always 2 cm more at least. The reality is he was 2 cm less than this height listed: 183'5 cm peak or (6'0.5) 179 today or (5'10.5)
Canson said on 7/Aug/17
@Slim: sorry disregard I thought you meant Arnold. My bad!
Canson said on 7/Aug/17
@Slim: must disagree there I think a peak 6'1" is in fact about what he would measure maybe even more like 6'0 and some change 6'0.5/.75. He was never almost 6'2" or much over 6'1". Ferrigno had him by a good 2.5-3 and wasn't but 6'3" range himself
Kiko said on 6/Aug/17
What is truth is Arnold was a legit 6 footer 6'1 at morning peak days. Do not say he was 187 cm because is a big joke

Rampage:
why do you always have to add height? I don't get what's the point? Calum Von Morger has never claimed 6'3 stop desinformation please. Where did you see that. Stop inventing. He always claim he is 6'2 but the truth is that he is a real 6'1. Today looks 2 inches taller than Arnold




Thats actually false, Rampage is known for upgrading guys over 6 foot and downgrading guys who are under 6 foot. Check out some 5'10" guys who Rob has met for proof.

Anyway I agree Calum has always claimed 6'2" and he is billed as 6'2" but many bodybuilders who have met him say 6'1" and he does look a 6'1" range guy. Taking early morning measurements and rounding off is common in sports.
Slim 182 cm said on 6/Aug/17
You guys are hilarious, there is a higher chance of peak Arnold measuring flat 6'2 rather than flat 6'1.

I stick to my estimation of 186.5-187 though. Judging of his classic documentary "pumping iron", he holds his own against Lou Ferringo.

Overall I'd believe a case as low as 186 but no less just as 188 does sound excessively optimistic but it's reasonable imo.
anyonmious said on 5/Aug/17
i say 5'10" now a days.
Canson said on 5/Aug/17
@Melyst: in fairness to Rampage he merely suggests that they "could have been" a certain height. But nobody here is perfect. And There are far more egregious offenders like people adding an inch to every celeb they comment on even going as far as saying they received first hand knowledge from a source like a soccer club etc and then turning around and inflating someone else comparatively if the first person doesn't add up with them. some even add two full inches on people that this person "claims" to have met in person

Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Aug/17
Carl simply isn't 6'0" max. Carl is 6'0.5" absolute bare minimum and looks it in the more recent pic and Rob said he still looks near 6'1". Rob has met Carl at least 3 times I know of. Why do people continually ignore Rob's in person sightings in favor of pictures? Look at Rob's reply on 22/May/14 on Carl's page regarding photos and photographers position. Carl certainly looks about 6'1" with that 5'10" man. Carl isn't standing straight in either photo as well. If you watched Carl's show this year Chicago Justice, you'd see Carl was not shorter than Philip Winchester who Rob lists 6'1" as well. Here's a few of photos of the 2 at events this year: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here

Carl is definitely still as tall as Winchester, so either Rob has Winchester at least an inch too tall, or he's still the 6'1" guy or 184 cm absolute minimum Rob saw 3 times in person. The fact Carl looks much taller in the more recent picture should have been enough to say pictures don't always present an accurate picture.
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Aug/17
As best as I can tell, Arnold looks over 5'11" with Calum. The second pic is the best and Arnold looks only 2", maybe 2.5" shorter. Arnold hasn't seemed to lose any more height in a few years now. Just like when he first started losing noticeable height around the 6th day, he wound up not much above 6 feet a few years later, but seemed to hold onto about that height through at least his first term as Governor, but then seemed to drop into the 182 cm range around his Expendables cameo and the end of his second term, but still seems about 5'11.5", just as he was when he did The Last Stand. You'd have thought a man who shrunk 2 inches by age 65 would have lost more than 1 cm by age 50, but Arnold still looked at or near his peak height until '98 or '99.

I strongly disagree. Arnold is not taller in predator. He installer on one promotional pic of the crew in the jungle. But when they do the biceps scène, they are same height. I woild even give Carl the advantage.


Arnie has the edge but he also had boots in that scene compared to Carl with dress shoes. A 1/2 inch footwear advantage maybe, I think barefoot you would have had trouble telling the difference.
opus said on 1/Aug/17
I'm still convinced Weathers was the taller of the two. in the Predator handshake scene, Arnold was in caterpillar/combat boots compared to Weathers being in dress shoes. The jungle marketing photo is not a good one to judge height, with the ground being uneven and they are all strategically placed. I believe that the 3cm height advantage that Weathers has on Arnold now is the same as what he had back in the 80s. I think the difference in footwear and camera angles made up the difference.
Barry Fl said on 1/Aug/17
Johan said on 31/Jul/17
He says that Arnie was possibly filming Last Action Hero , he wore cowboyboots in that film.

I don't think he was actually filming it as the picture was being taken, Johan. The poster was probably just saying it was around that time. But even so, it suggests that Arnold in his mid 40s was taller than the 5'10 a lot of people are trying to say he only ever was, even in his youth.
Romy said on 31/Jul/17
Even in a hill Arnold having an advantage on Carl if you watch it you can see Arnold was not taller. Bill Duke the other black guy was 6'4 and you can see others ones. Arnold looks like a 6 footer. If they were flat on same hill they were more or less about the same height id that

Arnold has been training a new up and coming young guy who is being called Arnold 2.0. His real name is Calum Von Moger. He lists his height as 6'2" (Arnold's old bodybuilding height listing).
Here are some very recent photos of the 2 of them. Judge for yourself and remember, do NOT be biased or see what you want to see. See was IS and remember, Calum may be inflating his own height as well. In the 2nd pic, Calum is NOT standing straight. In the 3rd and 4th he is. You can tell that there is over 3" in height different. Arnold is struggling with 5'11". A prime Arnold would have probably stood as tall as Calum, or a fraction shorter if he Calum is a full 6'2".

LOL But You are right when you say That arnold was That big. Maybe a strong 186 cm like Carl weathers. Recent pic of arnie meeting weathers show that weathers has, at least, 3 cm on Arnold now.

I got the impression Carl weathers was 187 cm when i met him in 2009 and quite buff. I shook his hand and talked to him and he had a black leatherjacket and sunglasses.
I am 6.3´5 192 cm and 195 pounds and he was almost as tall as me and he was more massive then me.

Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Jul/17
@loka: Watch Predator. Arnold is taller in the film. Same thing with the promo pics. Not much taller, but a bit taller. Rob came to the same conclusion and at one point went as far as to say he was certain Arnie was taller.

@MJKoP: Actually, I believe Rob has seen Carl 3 times. If I'm not mistaken, the 2 photos are from 2010 and 2016, respectively and Rob said in the comments he saw Carl in 2012 as well, but apparently didn't get a photo that time.

Rob has confirmed Carl is still 184-185 cm range in his late 60s and this year, Carl was clearly as tall as Philip Winchester who Rob also lists 6'1" so with Carl still 6'1" today or at worst just under it if Winchester is slightly shorter then there's no doubt he was 6'1" peak.
Johan said on 28/Jul/17
186 cm tops peak, Carl Weathers was 6'1" peak and Arnie wasn't taller than him at all. He also claimed he was 6'2" at the time. People refer to Predator, Carl's character had on dress shoes of max 1 inch and Arnie was in big boots, he had 0.3-0.5 inch footwear advantage thats why he looked to edge him.

Just look at him barefoot next to peak Lou Ferringo, he was around 3 inches shorter barefoot and Lou was 6'4" tops. He looked an inch shorter than James Cameron who claimed 6'2" and also Bush senior. Not one of those guys had more footwear so he was an inch or very close to an inch 0.75" shorter than legit 6'2" guys.

He edged out Carl Weathers and Tom Arnold. Also, didn't look much shorter than Jesse Ventura.
Rising - 174 cm said on 26/Jul/17
187 cm will look shorter than 188 and some of those are an aged Arnold after he had lost noticeable height. Arnold maintained his height well until early 50s and then started losing height noticeably from the Sixth Day until Terminator 3 and then again towards the end of his Governor's term until his movie comeback.

We do know Arnold was shorter than full 6'2" men, but we also know Arnold was taller than 6'1" men like Carl Weathers, who is still around 6'1" at age 69 and was listed at 6'2" in his NFL career so it's pretty likely Weathers was 186 cm. And he was also taller than 6'1" Tom Arnold as late as 1994 when Arnold may or may not have been at his peak height. I still think either 6'1.5" or 6'1.75" depending on how much Arnold lost from noon to evening since Vince Basille seems certain he measured Arnold accurately at 6'1.5" evening back in 1969. Perhaps even in between the two, which would be 187, but I understand 186 cm guesses as well. Nowadays, Arnold still seems 5'11.5" to me. He doesn't look like he's lost any more height since returning to movies. Bang on 181 cm like the average current height guess is also very possible.

Either way, he's definitely lost about 2" from his peak, imo.

The Arnold's height is the same history than Clint Eastwood's height.And others actors.

If Arnold was 187 or 6'2 feet in peak and now 5'11 if Clint was 192 cm and nowadays 183 cm how do you explain that?

To be honest is impossible they were 187 and 192cm in their peaks it is marketing! To promotion an actor.

You can lose 1 cm you can lose 2 or 3 cm also I can believe you lose 5 cm but 9cm like Clint???

Arnold= The ideal male height and body, any bigger and you look like a monster, but any smaller and you can't dominate. 187 cm is a great height of a man of his generation, 187 for old man is like 189 for middle aged or 191 for young. Rob, once again, please don't succumb to the bandwagon effect and downgrade just because 90% of visitors think so, his peak height of course!
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Jul/17
Seeing Sly and 5'9" Kurt Russell in Tango and Cash and the various promo appearances, he didn't seem shorter, even accounting for footwear as with bigger footwear, he could look at least 1.5" taller than Kurt, but proportionately, he never looked smaller either. He was near enough 5'9". Anywhere from 174-175 is arguable and nowadays anywhere from 173 to 174. Sly did look pretty close to Arnold in Escape Plan as well and a number of appearances for that and Expendables 3, but must have been wearing lifts.

RisingForce said on 13/Jul/17
I largely agree, Richard, except to me, Sly was more 174-175 as his ex-wife said than 176, but we can find a middle ground on about 175. Nowadays, I agree 100% with 173-174 cm at 70 years old. As for Bruce, I'm also in complete agreement with a peak of 181-182, but I don't think he's 178-179 today. Here's Bruce with John Malkovich, who is also listed 180 currently: Click Here Normally I would post a full pic, but if you've seen the Red films and the events, that's about how they usually look together. Malkovich looks shorter from his posture, but he's not taller than Bruce. The shortest I can see Bruce is 179.5 cm today.
RichardSpain said on 13/Jul/17
@paul01 ,please! As said Rising and other people here our friend Stallone was not less than 175cm in his younger, to me in Rocky movies Stallone was al lest 175cm maybe 176cm barefoot . Did you see scene running with his converse shoes?? there doesn't wear lifts.

Did you watch movie Nighthawks?? well, in this movie Sly worked with actor Billy Dee Williams who was a good 180cm in peak. They wear lifts in this movie. See please!

Today Stallone could be anything, he is 70 years old. 173/174cm is more credible for him.

About Willis to me was 181cm/182cm in peak. Nowadays seems 178/179cm. You can looking for pics in google.
Johan said on 12/Jul/17
@paulO1



There are plenty of gym pics from the 70'sand 80's of Arnie and Sly in flat shoes/flip flops. Sly looks 5'9" and it just isn't possible that he was less than that. Do some research the guy could look his 5'10.5" claim ALOT. He even pulled off looking 5'11" + next to Hogan and Arnie at times in the 90's.
Arnie had 4 inches on him at peak and its more like 3 inches today.

Carl Weathers who Rob met several years ago had 4 inches on Sly recently and he was in normal footwear. Carl looks more 6 foot range today down from 6'1" peak but that still puts Sly at 5'8" flat. He also was barely taller than 5'7.5" listed Justin Bieber at an awards ceremony again in normal shoes, the guy still looks 5'8" over 70 years old. His ex wife said he was 175 cm so again 5'8.75"-5'9" peak.


Arnie in turn looked 6 foot next to Chris Eubank back in 2010. Rob met Eubank and he looked a decent 5'10" so Arnie lost 1 cm into his 60's ? Don't get me wrong I think Arnie was 185 cm peak but 184 just seems too low all things considered. Today he can still look 5'11" flat and his body is badly compressed.
RisingForce said on 12/Jul/17
Sly didn't look 173 in the Rocky films. Carl Weathers was 185-186 and NOT 5 inches taller in those films. 174 is fair, but so is 175. Somehwere in that range peak and about 1 cm shorter today. He has worn lifts, but when he wore lifts peak he consistently looked 179-180 cm and the last few years, still looks 178-179 in his lifts. But you're downgrading Bruce and Arnold much more than Sly! Have you even seen the Red films? Bruce looks taller than John Malkovich in both films and at the premieres. Rob lists Malkovich at 5'11" these days. Bruce hasn't been side by side with Arnold in 5 years and it was 2 cm max by that point. It's common for Arnold and Sly to be downgraded, but a 5'9.5" Bruce Willis? Wow.

But then again, you didn't even know what any of their official heights or claims were so how can you be expected to estimate their heights accurately?

Arnold: 186-187 cm peak, 181-182 cm now
Stallone: 174-175 cm peak, 173-174 cm now
Bruce: 181-182 cm peak, 180 cm now
paul01 said on 11/Jul/17
Richard Spain stallone was maybe close to 174 cm max and Bruce 180 maxx. Also Stallone is known for being a lift user. He usually uses . If you watch him in the Rocky movies he looks as a 173 cm guy max because in that movie doesnt seem to wear heels. And today he looks 173- 173'5 max because he wear lifts in many ocassiones, but I'm convinced Stallone today is 172'5 cm tall (more or less). Saying he was 175 cm is disrespectful for honest 175 cm guys or 5'9 tall guys. A 5'9 man looks 1 inch on Stallone and very close to Bruce Willis height, who looks 176-177 cm today (2-3 cm shorter than Arnold who's 179 cm range today)
RisingForce said on 11/Jul/17
@paul01: those aren't official heights, they're Rob's independent estimates. Stallone's official height was always 5'10", except for mid 80s to mid 90s when he was getting 5'10.5" at times and once claimed as high as 5'10.75" while Bruce's official height was 6'1" and he claimed to be 6 feet tall himself.

Neither of them were ever as tall as their official heights, but they're taller than you're claiming. Sly's ex-wife, who didn't part on good terms with him has confirmed he was around 175 or at least 174(back when they were married, she insisted he was his official height of 5'10"-5'10.5") so she has no reason to lie now and there's no way she couldn't tell you his height within 1 cm after living with him for several years and filming 2 movies with him. Nowadays, Stallone is still at least 173, possibly 174. And there's no chance Bruce was under 5'11" peak and there's a good chance he was the 5'11.5" Rob gives him. He could still be 5'11", or at least 5'10.75" so nowadays still more 180 range. 179 seems low even today and 178 a joke.

@Carson: Arnold isn't 5'10.5". If he was, then you'd see him looking no more than 177 cm at times with loose posture and judging by the reactions on this page, you'd have people insisting Arnold is no more than 5'9"! He's still at least 5'11" as I've never seen him look shorter than maybe 5'10.75" and he wasn't exactly busting a gut or standing like he would to get measured either. Arnold likely claimed a shoe height a few years back when he said 6'0.5", whether he's shrunk more since then I don't know. Just like when he told the story of his daughter measuring him 6'1" in 2008, the story is probably true except Arnold left out the part where he had shoes on.

@Johan: I completely agree about Dolph. He's been able to drop more than an inch in posture for years. Those late 2012 photos I just posted with Hasselhoff are proof as you can find photos where he looks much shorter with a slouch, but there you see Dolph standing better with a taller man. That's a much better way to judge. I've posted pics on Dolph's page from the past couple years of Dolph with the following taller men using Rob's listings as references: Terry Crews(6'2.5"), Chuck Liddell(6'1.5") Michael Jai White(6'0.5") and Randy Couture(5'11.5"), plus Rob posted a recent pic where Dolph was taller than his 6'2" friend. It's always easier to judge someone's height against someone closer, but this is especially true if the taller man has a tendency to slouch with much shorter people like Dolph does. And to add to it, Dolph has a big head so people who judge by his eye level will naturally underestimate him further. With men closer to his height, Dolph looks a minimum 6'2.5" and a max 6'3" these days standing decently, so anything in there is a reasonable estimate. People saying he's not even 6'2" are WAY off and apparently haven't seen Dolph with people close to his height. I agree on 6'4" minimum peak as well. He could often look even taller so I'd say he had to be somewhere from 193-195 cm peak.

As for Stallone, he hasn't even lost an inch now 70+, more like half an inch, imo and 2 cm max I'd say. He's gone from a likely weak 5'9", imo to a strong 5'8". My personal guess is 5'8.75"-5'9" peak and 5'8.25"-5'8.5" now, but I can see anything from 5'8.5"-5'9" peak and anything from 5'8" to 5'8.5" current as possible and arguable. Height loss does depend a lot on genetics, habits and injuries. Chuck Norris was only 5'8.5" peak, but at age 77, he's still 5'7.75"-5'8". There are other examples as well, but then you have the other end of the spectrum like Arnold, Dolph, Clint Eastwood, Hulk Hogan, Burt Reynolds etc. It's difficult to predict. My father has lost quite a bit, but a lot of that is injuries and I didn't get all of his genetics since unfortunately, I'm nowhere near the strong six footer he was.

@Risingforce

I think the same Dolph doesn't stand that well with shorter guys his true height is revealed next to the taller ones. He did look about 2 inches taller than Stephen Amell on Arrow and Rob has him listed at 6'1" ( and really he is at least a strong 6'0.5") so Dolph being around 6'2.5" today is most likely correct. However its alot of height he has lost noway was he under 6'4" at peak.

Arnie is the same he has lost alot of height , I would say a fraction more than Dolph a solid 2 inches loss while Dolph has lost about 1.5 inches. Genetics also play a part I just hope I am one of the lucky ones. Sly has only lost about 1 inch and is in his 70's.
Matt6'5" said on 9/Jul/17
Looking at him with Jeff bridges in "stay hungry ". I'd say 6'1.25 to 6'1.5 range. But looking at him with Jai Courtney in the most recent terminator movie, I'd say 5'11.5 give or take .25

Compare Dolph to men over 6 feet and he still looks 6'2.5"-6'3". He looks shorter with men much shorter than him because he slouches. But Dolph was taller in 2012 than he is now. These photos are from 2012 and he's barely shorter than 6'4" Hasselhoff: Click Here Click Here

Dolph in 2012 was still 6'3" minimum and 6'3.5" max so I give him about 191 cm then, or in other words, a solid 6'3". Nowadays, he's more like a weak 6'3". Comparing him to 5'8" guys is not the best way to judge his height. His bad posture and big head can make him look at least an inch shorter than he is.
RisingForce said on 7/Jul/17
The Expendables 2 isn't exactly nowadays, it was 5 years ago. Stallone was probably slightly taller than Statham then and still 174.5 or 175 cm back then and Dolph was still a bare minimum 6'3" back then, likely 191. That photo probably favors the left side as Stallone and to a lesser extent Statham are as tall as 5'10" Scott Adkins despite being farther from the camera. Arnold did wear thicker heels at that event though, which made him look closer to 6' than the 5'11.5" he likely was, or 5'11.75" max in 2012. Here's a similar one, except with Van Damme instead of Statham: Click Here Van Damme in 2012 was likely the same 174 or 174.5 as Statham. Arnold had those same cowboy type heels. Arnold is 3"+ shorter than a still solid 6'3" Lundgren with footwear advantage.

The lowest Arnold could be nowadays is 5'11", but 5 years ago he was minimum 5'11.5". Van Damme and Stallone are both 174 max these days with a chance of solid 173, but no lower and Dolph could be 190 nowadays, possibly 190.5 max.

To be fair due to poor posture Arnie would look 5'10" range to many. He is around 5'11" today but doesn't stand well.

I can also see why some think 184 peak but when you consider other actors/sportsmen of that era it doesn't hold up. The lowest he could have been is 185 cm peak.

For instance he had 4 inches on Sly at peak, while wearing flip flops and Sly had thin gym shoes. Today its more 3 inches when Arnie straightens out and Sly isn't packing.

So a 6'0.5" inch peak Arnie means Sly was 5'8.5" peak...so at 70+ years Sly has lost 1/2 inch in height? cmon be serious. Now just an inch, maybe as Sly has done well imo.

I still think 6'1"-6'1.25" max peak .

Arnold was taller than Harrison Ford listed in 183/184cm. And almost as Clint Eastwood (192)and James Cameron(188).

So is clearly that Arnold's height was more than 184cm but less than 188

185 max 186

They've got better physiques, posture and carriage than guys half their age. Careful what facts you're flinging around. Surgeries and height loss don't necessarily come with the territory.
Editor Rob: I'm not sure about this, what I do know is about 15 different names on Arnie's page over the years is probably a record 😆😆

6'1 peak. 5'10.5 today.
Jug said on 3/Jul/17
I think he was 6'1, maybe 6'1.25 at peak, no more. Every time he's next to a 6'2 guy, like in pictures with James Cameron, he is about an inch shorter. Solid 6'1 guy in his youth. His massive frame and thick combat boots made him appear much bigger when he needed to look really imposing. Today he might be closer to 5'10.5.

To Jonathan : can you check again when you will see Arnold again at the gym ? Also, be carefull because he uses to wear shoes wich are very flat when he is at the gym...
paulgeson said on 3/Jul/17
yes today 5'11 I'd say weak 5'11. 5'11= 180'34 cm and I say he is 180 cm max

Arnold is still at least 5'11". I see a pretty good chance he dropped to about 186 cm at his peak at his low, but it depends on how much Arnie shrunk in a day since I do believe the 6'1.5" evening measurement. It seems Arnold still held onto most of his height until the late 90s/early 00s. The 6th Day, Collateral Damage and Terminator 3 are when he started looking noticeably shorter, perhaps under 6'1" then it seems he lost the rest during his last 2-3 years as Governor.

Agree with all this. Arnold has lost height but is still taller than some people give him credit for. He's 70 and it's not shocking for someone to have dropped 2 inches by that point. I've seen it happen to people I know personally. But he's also had loads of ops - broken legs, hips, etc, through skiing and motorcycle accidents. So they could have contributed somewhat. And he does seem to have a rather sunken posture when he sits or stands (though not always) which makes him look even shorter still.

Calum is 6'1". Because I'm 6'1 here. I'm from France and here I'm 185'4 cm. In USA I'm 6'1 and I was front to front sharing some words with Cal. Very humble guy we were exactly same height. So in my opinion Arnold could be 179 or 180 cm today not over. Calum looks 2 inches on him.
Jonathan5'8 said on 2/Jul/17
I'm about 1/4 inch taller than him which is around 1 cm. But he can look 2 cm shorter sometimes because his posture. I'm 180'5 cm and stading tall both he is about 179 cm today. With luck 5'11 or 180 at morning. I'm sure he was 183'5 cm back days close to 184 cm
Jonathan5'8 said on 2/Jul/17
Richardspain You are wrong. He trains here in the same gym I do. He usually comes at morning. He is not a full 5'11. I was 5'8 172,8 cm at 16 and today I'm 19 and hit 5'11 ( 180'5 cm) . I'm a bit taller. Arnold must be 179 cm today and back in his youth peak was 183-184

A pìc is not the proof to judge height. Arnold must be 5'10.75 today not shorter. I can guarantee he is not 5'10. Standing tall Arnold is very close to a strong 5'11 but his body posture sometimes can look him shorter, BUT he is not 5'10. His lowest today 5'10.5 and he was close to 6'1 in his peak days

I've seen the pic you are talking about. But I can guarantee Calum is 6'1 and Arnold is very close to a strong 5'11 today. Arnold usually come to this gym and he is about my height I'm 5'11. There are 2 inches beteween them. Arnold was about Calum heights in his youth. A Little shorter like 0,5 inches I would say
giorgema said on 1/Jul/17
Cole you are wrong the dude is 6'1. 6'2" is what he always claims. I'm 6'1 and he is exactly as tall as me. Met him twice. We are talking about Calum Von Morger right? Arnold was very close to his height or same in his peak days Calum is a real 6'1 Arnold was 6'0. and 3/4

I think Jason's point is that people here are doing worse than guessing - they're insisting they're right and saying it's fact, it's proof, it's end of story, whatever. I have to agree with him. It's daft. This is a guessing page and nobody has the final proof. They shouldn't get so worked up about their own, or other peoples, guesses.

183 is too low Davidcae I'm with Arnoldhero strong 184 peak days today 180 he has shrunk 4 cm max. I say 3'5 cm. This makes a fraud 187 cm height peak and more other reason he was a real 184 man
jason said on 30/Jun/17
sorry, gotta laugh at all these people who insist they know the height of a man they've never met, and insist they know it to the exact 0.5cm!!! END OF STORY!!! ha ha. I know it's a height site dudes but chill out. I'd say Arnold is 'about 6 foot' and that's as exact as I'd ever get! Could be 5'10, could be 6'2. Could be 180.5cm, or it could be that I don't know, and nor do you.

Definitely Arnold's REAL height:

PEAK DAYS AND MORNING HOURS: 185 CM
PEAK DAYS AND EVENING: 184 CM

TODAY morning hours 180,5 CM and 179/180 evening not
Arnoldhero said on 29/Jun/17
RichardSpain in that case I agree 100%. Evening 184 cm or 6'0.5 max sounds totally right and true. At morning 185 cm and right after bed with luck 185'3 cm. Today is max 180 cm. People over stimate how tall is a 184 cm without his shoes

Arnie is strong 6'0.25 peak i believe and look half inch shorter than 6'1 Yury Vlasov. Today Arnie look more like strong 5'10 maybe 5'10.25 certainly look 181.7cm with footwear
RichardSpain said on 29/Jun/17
Arnoldhero;

If you agree we gave him a strong 185cm in the morning and 184cm during the day ..ok??. Arnold wasn't less than that, believe me! Nowadays I think he's a solid 180cm /181 cm. In my opinion less than that is little for him too, he still looks a big man for his "body building" he is corpulent.

Peak to Arnold 185 cm when he was younger and barefoot.
Today 181/182cm

And yes I agree with you he lost only 3 cm.He haven't lost any more. Around 3 cm ,but in Arnold's height nowadays I disagree with you ,sorry.
Arnoldhero said on 27/Jun/17
Totally agree a guy like Arnold can't srhunk more than that. 3 cm max. FROM 183'3 184 TO 180
Arnoldhero said on 27/Jun/17
RichardSpain. Yeah you are right he was 37 years old so he was in his peak days. I meant 185 cm morning hours. He was maybe a strong 184 in Commando, but I can't go over that mark. Today is 179-180. I guarantee he is not over. They also say 178-179 but I'm sure if he stands straight he can hit 180 today with some luck
RichardSpain said on 27/Jun/17
@Arnoldhero . But if we give to Arnold 183cm ( 6 ft) in Commando, we give him max 183cm because Arnold was in his peak when "commando" was filmed. For this reason I think Arnold was a perfect 185cm in year 1985.

But could be a solid 184cm , 183cm is little bit for him

I think Arnold was between 184-185cm in peak, not more but not less.

And Nowadays a perfect 181cm. He lost 3 cm about his peak.

187 -188 cm everybody know is a joke, absolutely false!

In the movie "Commando" he seems a strong 185 cm ( 6'1) not more. Arnold was 37 /38 years old in "Commando" so he is in his peak. Arnold was 185 cm barefoot and maybe 187cm 188 cm with his boots or footwear.

End of history guys! 185cm was his real height. Nowadays between 180/182 cm.

My height is 5'11 and I'm sure Rob would listed me here 6 foot or 5'11.75 at least. People believe I'm 6 foot. But in the real world I'm 5'11 after lunch. 180'2 cm is my real height but I see that usually 1 inch is what people always add. Doctor measurement I'm 5'11.0 or 180'25 cm with my trainers I could look even over 6 foot! Real height usually is 1 inch shorter than you ever believed Arnold looks at most 1 inch taller than me. People always say the tall guy right there, they usually believe i'M TALL and a ral 6'1 man is very tall!

@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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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 😇

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

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 😂

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

Ferrigno was 6'1".

Oh good, James is back. When did they let him out?
Editor Rob: Lou was still comfortably over 6ft 2 last time I seen him.

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.

An aged James Cameron here 6-1" max. Arnies looks 2" under him and his shoes to his foot position look very odd,big wedge very likely.Click Here

They don't look like wedge shoes at all.

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".

@ 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
