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.

To Rising : why are you saying that Carl Weathers was shorter than Arnold ? Is there a Pic that shows that ?

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.

Andy Murray looks pretty similar as Charlton Heston not only his face. He looks around the same height and Murray said he is 187 cm (6'1.75) You are trying to tell me Charlton Heston was taller than him? Murray look very tall and he say he is 6'1.75
Dukenukem said on 22/Jul/17
Jervis:

Charlton Heston was never 6'2.25 He was 6'1.25. He always looked 186 cm 187. Clint looked 6'2 a classic 6'2

End of 6ft Morning peak days: 6'1 He was 6 to 6'1. This is the truth

Arnie was barely taller than Lewis Hamilton standing next to him. And Hamilton had on flat racing shoes while Arnie had his boots on. There is no way in hell he was ever 6'2.
Jervis said on 22/Jul/17
Clint was taller than 6ft2.5 Charlton Heston and slightly shorter than 6ft4 George Kennedy and Greg Walcott,had a least 2, more like 3 inches on Lee Marvin,6ft2 peak height for Clint I dont think so.Strong 6ft3 close or maybe bang on 6ft4 morning height.

Richard is wrong, a 6 cm height loss is possible.
robson said on 22/Jul/17
He is about 6'0 now.I had this privilege to met him 1 year ago and he looked to be just like me though I got quite higher sport shoes while he had flat shoes 0'5+ max and I'm 5'11 maybe 5'11.5 max bare.I think 6'0 is accurate then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/17
Comfortably over 6ft1 peak
Danieltiger said on 20/Jul/17
You are right Richard! I say the samething! Marketing! Clint was never 192 cm. He was 188 and Arnold 185 being lucky. I say he was strong 184 cm and Clint Eastwood was of course never over 189cm! 187-188. Slim guy who lloks even 2 inches taller!

Shortest I've seen him look is a weak 5'11", but standing well for a measurement, I'd say he's still taller than a flat 5'11".

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???

Amazing!!

Slim 181 cm Yes right. Then you wake up and the dream is over... Ive been watching his movies my whole life front of tall guys and legit 6'2 guys and I can guarantee he was never a legit 6'1 in movies but a string 6 footer. He was to a legit 6'1 in his youth today is 5'11 if that. Any stimation oever 185 cm is disrespect for legit 6'1 guys and over..
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
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.
Lak said on 16/Jul/17
Yesterday i watched expendables 3 , sly looked the same height as ford of course sly was wearing a very thick shoes and Arnie looked about 1 and 1/2 ich taller than sly

to be honest for me Stallone never looked 175 cm (5ft'9). A guy with that heights looks taller. He never was higher than 174 cm. Today 173 at best
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!

They have similar height in this movie!! and please you don't tell me that sly wear lifts because Billy too wears lifts in this movie.


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.

RichardSpain and do you think bruce was 182 cm and Stalllone 175?? lol That's funny, just hollywood height. Downgrade 1 inch on both. Stallone was not even 174 cm. He was a solid 173 and Bruce Willis 178-179. Arnold 184 cm at most. Do not believe official "heights" Remember these guys are famous. If a guy claim for exemple 175 is possible he is 173. However Stallone never looked as a 175 cm man. It's obvious.

@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.

In PumpingIron, Katz is described as 6ft1 and he was clearly taller than Arnie. Ken Waller is described as 6ft and looked a fraction shorter than Arnie.
Lou Ferrigno dwarfed Arnie. I saw almost 4inches difference when Lou wasn't slouching. I am pretty convinced Arnold was 184cm at peak.

Body builders and wrestlers suffer from the sane problem. Huge height loss. Just like hogan another meathead who had a ton of surgeries the 70yr old plus Arnie has lost 2.5-3 inches.

6'1 peak. 5'10.5 today.

Arnie peak was at least 6'1.5"-6'1 3/4". I do agree that he's max 5'10.5" today. At least a 3" height loss.

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 .

Jonathan 5'8, please!! search in google "pics Arnold with Clint Eastwood" or "Arnold with Harrison Ford".

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

Nowadays 180/181 not less he still has good look believe me brother!

Easily 187-188 when Young & 181/182 today. No problem with 5 cm. loss in older years. Common thing.

Body builders and wrestlers suffer from the sane problem. Huge height loss. Just like hogan another meathead who had a ton of surgeries the 70yr old plus Arnie has lost 2.5-3 inches.

You a bodybuilder Junior? I am. 65 years old, been working out for over 40 years, and can't say I've lost any noticeable height, nor have any of the real bodybuilders I know. 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 ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

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.
loka said on 3/Jul/17
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...

RisingForce said on 2/Jul/17
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 pรฌc 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.

Last you said is more credible. Understand me give to Arnold today less 180cm is joke as I said before.

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.
loka said on 25/Jun/17
1m86 peak and 1m82 now. His weight and his "governor period" has probably made him loose more than 1 inch.

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!
Jim Hopper said on 23/Jun/17
@Jordan87 Fanboy sorry to burst the bubble. How about INSTEAD we listen to the people above who met him,Kevin Sorbo etc. All say the same thing. Are they all liars????? Doubtful. Arnie was a tiny bit over 6 ft prime. Now "substantially shorter than six foot." as quote by Richard E Grant. And guess what?? He actually met him !! Sorry fanboy

I agree hunbert5'11tall. He said:

Lou Ferrigno was a strong 6'3 today is 6'2.5 no more. Arnold in his peak days hit 6 foot and quarter inch nothin over. 6'1 mornin if that! This is the truth. 2 inches on both is on movies get it guys?
Lol yea totally agree. In the real world Lou was a strong 6'3 and Arnold strong 6'0. 6'0.25 at most peak days
Jordan87 said on 23/Jun/17
Jim Hopper,

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

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

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

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

Indeed, totally agree and see this a lot. Also the height and the angle of the photographer can have a major influence!

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.

Arnold ain't a lift wearer, he just has awesome proportions (long legs short torso) and it gives the illusion of being and inch taller or so.

I believe in his peak he was 6 foot tall and half inch maybe close to the 6'1 mark.
BarryFl said on 20/Jun/17
I think Stallone can look 5'10 in a good pair of shoes, which is why he sometimes looks very close to Arnold in height.
BarryFl said on 20/Jun/17
For what it's worth, I'd give Arnold an easy 6'1 in his younger days and at least 5'11 now (though looking less with bad posture). But - unlike certain rabid folk around here - that's my opinion. It's not a fact and I'm not spitting fire at anyone who chooses to think otherwise. I don't know for certain, and nobody except Arnold's doctor does.
James said on 20/Jun/17
Giving prime Arnold a height shorter than 6'0 is just absurd. I'd say a solid 6'1 maybe a tall 6'1 at his peak.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Everything about your entire post is so inaccurate.

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

Editor Rob: sorry, but your conversion is wrong ๐Ÿ˜ต

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 ๐Ÿ˜‡

Gracjan said on 16/Jun/17
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 ๐Ÿ˜‚
AlexItaly said on 15/Jun/17
Ok so in order to downgrade Arnold, you downgraded Lou Ferrigno, Jeff Bridges and Carl Weathers. Who's next, why not Holyfield that was clearly shorter than Arnold in 1995? Wait, I have an idea for you haters, why don't we downgrade the entire world population in order to downagrade Arnold? :-D

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.

Alexander5'11 said on 14/Jun/17
the big proof Arnold was 6 foot in de 70`s (peak height)is Lou Ferrigno, and Rob met him. Lou was max 6'3. Today is a little over 6'2.0 I know he is 188-189 cm range (6,2.25) thanks to my friend who is 6'2.5 and told me he looked exactly the same height as him maybe a little over him. So the proof Arnold was 6 foot is Lou who was 6'3 at most. You can compare him next to Arnold in the 70ยดs. 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'll give 183 for Arnold anyway. Strong 6.0 at 1970's

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

Peter 179cm said on 13/Jun/17
@ Afka9 This is a late response but i'll go ahead: Army measurements are usually taken in shoes as a guy i know claims to have been measured at 179cm in the army and i'm comfortably 3-4cm taller than him if not 5cm.Of course he could just be lying but it makes sense that the Army measures in shoes and weighs in uniforms.I've seen medical tests taken in the Army and ALL the participants kept their footwear when they got measured.In other words your father was likely 179-180 range at 18.
AlexItaly said on 13/Jun/17
Just type "holyfield schwarzenegger 1995" and you will see that Arnold was clearly taller than 186 cm. tall Holyfield back in the ninetis. Even assuming he had shoes advantage, this puts him AT LEAST at 186 cm in 1995. He probably was 187-188 when younger.
Pierre said on 13/Jun/17
@Duncan=yes there is a picture in the web but Arnold is closer to the camera so look bigger,and it's impossible to see if he has lifts or not imo ;Chris seem have a relaxed posture(knee),their shoulders seem to be around the same height
Duncan said on 13/Jun/17
Look at Arnold with Chris Eubank in 2013 at 'The Last Stand' party. Full length pictures. Both wearing regular dress shoes and Arnold - age 66 - looks 3 inches taller (not only that, big bigger proportionately). Chris Eubank a very strong 5'10".

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

MJKoP Maybe he hit that mark 6'1.5" with his trainers on. However that's what VINCE said. No proof. It's obvius he never was 187 cm barefoot and of course being the end of the day makes that even more unreal.

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

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

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

Arnold is short looking but not as low as 5'9 that ridiculous i read up from some source and acticles over 10years ago and still many people discuss in some forum now. The cruel part he might be 6'0.25 peak (6'1.5 w shoes) and have dip into 5'10.25 now but at least 5'11.5 fit in a leather shoes

@Rising force: peak I believe he was. Today I can't tell tho how much he's lost. He wears lifts but to be honest people don't take into account he doesn't have perfect posture either most likely. But It will not tell on him as much with his build as it does on the average person tho. I think somewhere around 5'11 today

Give it a rest with the lifts! Arnold does not wear lifts. If he was 5'11 and wore lifts in his shoes then he'd still look 6'2 or more to this day, and he doesn't. So I don't get why you're saying he wears lifts.
Schlomo said on 7/Jun/17

Peak height was a flat 6'1", 186 morning, 184 evening. He's lost more height than most guys his age though, I think he now wakes up around 181 cm, 179 at night. Now 181 is not short but due to his build and huge upper body, he looks positively stocky now.
RisingForce said on 6/Jun/17
Canson, I do see Arnold at 185 cm until the late 90s. If you look at this video in 1999 with The Rock, he measures up pretty well at about age 52: Click Here I do believe Rock was about 6'3" in the late 90s/early 2000s and I see only a 2 inch difference when they're equal distance from the camera: Click Here I think there's a very good chance Arnold could have lost some height by this time too. He did start looking noticeably shorter to me around The 6th Day, which was probably filmed not long after this since it came out the following year. Arnold still looked 6'1" to me throughout the 90s.
Gary said on 6/Jun/17
Both seated and standing, Arnold does have very careless posture, which makes him look shorter and more shrunken than he is - especially noticeable as he ages and thickens. A surprise for someone who otherwise tries to look so macho, and hangs around gigantic fellows all the time.
Canson said on 5/Jun/17
@rising force I'd go no lower than 184/185 peak he may have been a true 6'1 flat at his lowest. I have a hard time seein 187 but also less than 184 at his peak

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rob, who do you think would be tallest peak out of Schwarzegger, Brosnan and Letterman?
Editor Rob: it really could end up being a toss up with them, I can understand 6ft 1.25 range as being a possible Arnie range, and maybe his 6ft 1.5 was busting a gut. Lettermann could look nearer 6ft 2 in the 80's
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
@Gary: I believe he's lost two inches for sure. He may have been a legit 6'1" peak which is likely but today 5'11. What sparks debate here is he is a notorious lift wearer

I don't see why some people find it hard to believe Arnold could have lost almost 3 inches. A friend of mine who was a good 5'11 when he was a young fellow is now only just scraping 5'9. So somebody taller could have lost more. And look at Prince Philip - a 6 footer in his youth and now most people say he's only 5'8 or 9!
jervis said on 1/Jun/17
If you look at stay hungry at 1hr13.42 mins you will see 6ft4 listed Ed Begley jnr face to face with 6ft1.5 listed Jeff Bridges in it Bridges looks a good 4 inches shorter, its odd because there is a much bigger difference between Begley jnr and Bridges, and Clint Eastwood and Bridges,Arnold does look the same height as Bridges,but if Begley jnr was 6ft4 then its hard for me to see Bridges being 6ft1.5 and Arnold being this height too.
James said on 1/Jun/17
He most likely shrunk a bunch because of so much damage to the body and back. You lose height if you are out of shape, fat, overweight and don't weight train to retain muscle strength and yes posture. However, Arnold for years maxed out weight and put that on his spine and system. Wouldn't shock me if that causes shrinkage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/17
He could have been measured at both 6ft1ยฝ and 6ft1ยพ but perhaps the latter at an earlier time like just before lunch or something. Looking at how he stacked up against other guys in the 70's, I buy it. He was identical to Jeff Bridges or David Letterman, some argue he edged them. Not quite a full 3in below Ferrigno (not below 6ft4 and possibly 6ft4ยผ).
Canson said on 31/May/17
@Rising Force: in his peak Arnold was a strong 6'0" close to 6'1" but not nearly 6'2". He wasn't as small as 5'11" I do agree with you there however
RisingForce said on 31/May/17
Arnold didn't wear lifts, though, so it's really the difference between Bridges being in shoes and Arnold being barefoot, possibly losing more height as well lifting to film the scene and Arnold and Bridges both in shoes. It seems to be more of what I was saying. Arnold was taller than 6'1" guys in his prime, but shorter than legit 6'2" guys.
Jim said on 31/May/17
@Leo2001. Arnold is wearing cowboy boots to Jeff's normal shoes in that scene. You should watch the movie Stay Hungry again where Arnold is walking away from the camera in that particular scene showing his footwear.
jervis said on 31/May/17
yes its funny that hes taller than Bridges there but in Stay Hungry the bare foot Arnold is smaller than Bridges, it goes to show how much difference a pair of Shoes can make.
Mgille said on 31/May/17
So why Kevin Sorbo said he is like 5"11 some time ago? Why a lot of tall guys also said he was max 6 feet? Tall guys or over 6 feet guys has the best reference to guess Arnold's height.Do you believe a healthy and strong man like Arnold has shrunk 8 cm?( more than 3inches! those who keep saiying he was 6'1"5 or 186-187 cm are lost and ignorants. My grandes has never train lifting and she has shrunk 4cm ( 1inch and 3/4) (77 years old) how can anyone can believe this story? Learn, watch and study please. This is the truth. He was about 6 feet 181/183 max today 177 /178. It is amazing still say he was 187?? Anotther and strong proof is today all this guys who met him claming he is 5'10 Range, and politicians saying he is a 5"10 guy when he was gobernor and other ones who met him in the 90"ss : Arnold is 5"11

He was clearly and without a doubt in the range between 6'1 and 6'2. No brainer. I know all these discussions with haters and trolls generate a lot of traffic but come on...there is a orgy of evidence he was 186-187 cm. tall in his youth, lets say until the late eighties.

Heightlover, what would my estimate have to do with me being 5'9" and why would that be funny? As a matter of fact, I'm a bit under 5'9" in bare feet. I say Arnold was 6'1.75" for several reasons. One being that he consistently looked taller than 6'1" men, plus we have a body builder Vince Basille who didn't like Arnold personally who claimed to measure Arnold 6'1.5" in the EVENING. Arnold in 2008 claimed 6'1.75" for his peak height and that adds up perfectly with a 6'1.5" evening measurement. Usually, someone will be about 1/4" or so taller during normal midday measuring time than they are in the evening so it all adds up. It seems likely Arnold measured 6'1.75" at a more typical measuring time, which seems to validate Basille's measurement. I mean, otherwise why claim 6'1.75" instead of his usual 6'2" or 6'1.5"? Arnold doesn't seem so height conscious as to try to elaborately fool people. Basille says he measured just about his usual 5'9.5" so he believed the scale is accurate and other body builders measured 1/2" below their claimed heights so it doesn't seem it was particularly inflated. Here are quotes from Vince Basille

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

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

If they wanted to make Arnold look taller they wouldn't have chosen such an enormous cast. 6'1"+ Weathers, 6'2.5" Sonny Landham, 6'4"+ Bill Duke, 6'3"+ Jesse Ventura etc. Arnold is taller in the promo shots where you can see their entire bodies as well: Click Here Click Here I do agree that you have to take movies with a grain of salt a lot of times, but let's face it, if there's a movie where Arnold looks shorter than for some, it's as good as a stadiometer measurement. But particularly if several of us try over time, we should get a response from Brigitte since she only has about 10,000 twitter followers. We must make sure to specify peak height, though.

One of the head people involved with T2 described Arnold as 6'3" in relation the original character being written as a more nondescript 5'10"-6'0" everyday type of guy. I know the exact quote was posted here before, but if the man who said it was on set and witnessed Arnold during the multiple scenes where he was completely naked(and yes, you could clearly see his bare feet), then the six foot three description is of some very convincing value.

Like it or not, he easily easily scraped 6' 1.5'' mark barefoot in the late 70s. A shocking 5' 11'' nowadays at only 69. What happened? Who knows.
