Gosh, he grew 1-inch in the latest snap and he is in exactly the same pose. Honestly, if i was a celebrity and i was doing a Comic Con, i would put a discreet wedge in my normal footwear but that is just me. I am keeping my 6'0 estimate for him.

6'0

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jan/16
Strong 6ft1 guy in his prime, no question. 4in+ taller than Stallone (not under 5ft9 prime)
richie said on 3/Jan/16
Yeah 6'1" is very accurate, he was slightly shorter than Arnie in the opening scene in Predator
Dmeyer said on 16/Dec/15
6'0,5-0,75 now 184-184,5cm peak 6'1-1,25 185/6cm
hijopotamus said on 18/Nov/15
legit 6'1"
Gbw said on 15/Nov/15
I was up close to Carl Weathers in West Vancouver once, and was surprised at his LACK of height. I'm doubting the 6'2" by several inches.
james said on 28/Sep/15
I believe he was 6'1 back in the 1980's .he and 6'1.5 Arnold were close in height in predator
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/15
186-187cm peak
184-185cm today
5'7 in bare feet said on 6/Aug/15
Weathers's head is almost at the top of the pic. Look how far Rob's head is from the top. Weathers looks at least 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/15
184cm today is possible
Narr said on 30/Apr/15
I don't get it. I'm 6ft, my sister is 5ft7.5, and I look taller with her than Weathers with Rob.

Carl Weathers height: 6ft 1in (185 cm)

A legit 6ft 1 in
1.89m said on 21/Mar/15
I think in hollywood guys who are 6-0 put 1 or 2" on for sure. 6-0 peak imo.
Cam Layton said on 4/Jan/15
You guys, he's clearly 6'2". Look at him in American Warships, he's not getting smaller.
Ron B. said on 15/Dec/14
"he's 6 years younger than Arnold"

No they are the same age
the shredder said on 1/Dec/14
I can see over 6 '1 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Nov/14
If he's under 6ft1 now, it could only be in at worst.

Was for sure a 6ft1-2 guy in the 70's and 80's. Pics with Sly to prove it
Steve said on 24/Nov/14
He still has at least four inches on Rob while slouched towards him, so 6-1 is a fair listing
Judd said on 14/Nov/14
no doubt he was a real 6'1" (with a chance to be 6'1.25") in 1970's,1980's and first of 1990's, but today i am not sure...he has probably lost a little amount but he can be one of those actors who wear thicker shoes than average, to appear taller...i think he could be tody around 6'0-0.25"...
mId said on 13/Nov/14
Met him briefly at a convention here in Sweden a couple months back. My brother is 6'1 and I'm 6'(Before bed heights).. Carl was a nice guy, but 6'1.. I don't know about that. I usually study/compare the heights of the few celebs I meet(because of this site), but I was in a rush when I met Carl so I can't say for sure(He doesn't seem insecure about his height though.. Some male celebs I've met have had a little extra heel to their shoes, but Carl had rather flat shoes on). So I'm not gonna say that he isn't 6'1, but I wouldn't guess it either. If I had to guess I would say ~6'. That's the most honest estimate I can give, as I can't say for sure this time, Sorry.
Lebensdorf said on 26/Oct/14
I think 6 feet, compared to Lundgren in Rocky. I can't imagine more than 6 feet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/14
Danimal he's 6 years younger than Arnold
Danimal said on 15/Sep/14
Looks a fraction under 6'1" today (in your pic with him). Could have easily lost 1" in height at his age. Was probably just under 6'2" in his prime. All we know is that he's the same age as Arnold and has aged A LOT better. Would have 2" on Arnold today.
Concerned 181 cm said on 13/Sep/14
I could buy him being 6' to 6'0.5 if he stood his straightest, but a full 6'1? I dunno Rob. Even assuming he has really bad posture, that seems awfully generous for this picture.
the shredder said on 9/Jul/14
He is not standing at his fullest
keith said on 6/Jul/14
6 foot
DMEYER said on 1/Jun/14
at 5 ft 10 looks 1cm tallee than you , its a shame weathers dosnt stand military posture , you drop height as well
Dmeyer said on 22/May/14
To me h looks 182cm in the pic with but could easily be 2-3cm with better posture you can tell h is near 5in on rob
[Editor Rob: sometimes height can be expanded or lost in some photos.

look at this guy (whose pics are on flickr) from the event Weathers was at Click Here. That guy in person is about 5ft 10...how the hell can wopat look smaller, he's a guy with good posture in photoshoots - the position/photographer looks to have altered it! The other 2 photos with weathers/biehn are more closer to how they look.

Alucard said on 15/May/14
Always been a legit 5'11, maybe 5'11.5 absolute peak, no more than that... No way 6'1, nowhere near that...

RisingForce says on 3/May/14-What are you going on about? I didn't say Arnold was 6'2" evening, I said 6'1.5", and Stallone around 5'9" so stop making things up. Weathers was always thought to be around 6'1" and the fact that Rob said he still looked 6'1" in 2010 at 62 and still around it in 2012, maybe a hair under it by then confirms it in my mind. That's stronger than anything you've presented considering I'd seriously doubt Rob would be off by an inch, much less 2 considering how many people he measured for that height challenge.


i just understood you are another fanboy, like fanboy31. rob is doing a great work, but with many profiles, he can be wrong. Most of listed heights here are based just on question-answer, how tall are you? i am...
few profiles have the pic with rob, in those cases the evidence takes over words. i could do many examples, i take just one: Benjamin Ayres. He said he is 6'2". Is it true? comparising his pic with rob it seems pretty fair. So at the same time, you can clearly see how ayres is at least 3 full inches taller than weathers. weathers at 6'1" is simply a joke. like arnold at 6'1.5", and Stallone around 5'9". Totally out of real.


Totally unreal for Stallones peak too???? Lol haa r u effen kidding?? Chalk it up to another classic Rockefella-Brisco downgrade. Your a professional troll

Yah rob must be doing a good job considering you downgrade 99.9 percent of the listings.
Dmeyer said on 4/May/14
Considering everything h does look aleast 184cm/6ft0.5 with rob and possibly 6ft0.75/185cm as rob saw him

What are you going on about? I didn't say Arnold was 6'2" evening, I said 6'1.5", and Stallone around 5'9" so stop making things up. So don't go repeating the argument as if it's Arnold at 6'2" in the evening in hopes of making those arguing against you seem ridiculous. That's nowhere near 6 inches with Norton either, 5 inches max depending on posture and ground level. That camera angle isn't even as good as the first one, but what exactly does that prove anyway? Weathers is still slouching yet looks similar to Mr. T despite Mr. T also having a footwear advantage. I don't think there's a big difference between Mr. T and Weathers either since the difference wasn't that big in Rocky 3, but Weathers is obviously more than an inch taller, likely around 2 if both are barefoot and standing straight.

You're not proving anything or even making a good case. Weathers was always thought to be around 6'1" and the fact that Rob said he still looked 6'1" in 2010 at 62 and still around it in 2012, maybe a hair under it by then confirms it in my mind.

RisingForce says on 30/Apr/14 Plus, Weathers is dropping a bit of posture, he's clearly a little farther from the camera and he's still not shorter, I don't know where you got that from....

i am really tired of this....ok carl weathers is 6'1", stallone 5'10" barefoot, and of course arnold was 6'2.25" in the morning, 6'2" in the evening....ok good night.

mr t was clearly under 5'11". mr t with former heavyweight champion ken norton:Click Here

norton was in the 6'3" range, he is clearly 5-6 inches taller than mrt. you talk about posture to defend weathers and company, now i do the same. Mrt has a good posture, straight, while norton is relaxed, no good posture. He towers over mrt.
mrt was in the 5'10" range. For sure.

the camera angle is ok here?:Click Here
Carl is in the 5'11" range, a weak 6ft very young maybe.Anyway, clearly far from a legit 6'1". Oakland Raiders listed him at 6'2"? do you know eddie murphy was 6'3" when he was 21?

i do not find the right words to describe this comedy, it is sad and funny at the same time, ahahah
rockfellas said on 1/May/14
he looks max 5'11" here with rob. far from 6'1". Carl weathers is part of this big group of hollywood movie stars with overestimated heights.

pic from RockyIII behind the scenes(year 1982):Click Here

In the middle there is mr t, who is the only one with height advantage because he is wearing cowboy boots, 2 inches heels. I refuse to talk about stallone, we can't imagine which kind of lifts he had into his shoes. It has been proven mr t was in the 5'10"(177-178cm)range. Far right there is carl weathers. Close to weathers there is an old Burgess Meredith. Burgess Meredith's height was 5ft 4in-5ft5in at the time. Weathers looks 5-6 full inches taller than meredith.
Weathers looks a little bit shorter than mr t, but mr t had cowboy boots on.
THIS CLEAR PIC, SAME GROUND LEVEL, SAME CAMERA ANGLE, SHOWS CARL WEATHERS IN THE 5'11" range. He was 34, peak height. Carl weathers was in the 5'11"(179-180cm)range, a weak 6ft is acceptable as max peak height. WITHOUT ANY DOUBT, ANYTHING OVER 6FT IS OUT OF REAL FOR CARL WEATHERS.
RisingForce said on 30/Apr/14
Of course, when you downgrade everyone to suit your agenda, you can argue Weathers at 5'11". Here are the problems with that, it's never been "proven" Mr. T is 177-178 cm so don't casually toss around definitive words like proof and expect us not to notice, and in fact, I believe Mr. T is was at least the 5'10.5" peak he's given here with a good chance he was 5'11". You've acknowledged Mr. T's footwear advantage, and while I have no idea if Mr. T was in lifts, cowboy boots like that are among the easiest shoes to fit them in. Plus, Weathers is dropping a bit of posture, he's clearly a little farther from the camera and he's still not shorter, I don't know where you got that from. And where on earth did you get 5'6" peak for Burt Young? Burt was more likely in the 5'7.5"-5'8" and he's the closest to the camera of anyone. I have no idea how tall Burgess Meredith was peak or at that time, but look at his feet, they look to be at angle like he might be tip-toeing.

Of course, a 5'11" peak Carl Weathers also means the Oakland Raiders overlisted his height by 3 inches which isn't remotely plausible based on how the NFL usually lists height, a 3" height exaggeration anywhere outside of wrestling is rare, and the NFL has typically been the best of the major american sports at least when it comes to height listings. Then we have to believe Rob overestimated Carl Weathers height by 2" AND that Weathers hadn't lost any height by 62.

Sorry, but each one of these things is a stretch to say the least, but put them all together and this isn't remotely plausible, and really based on absolutely nothing other than an attempt to downgrade Arnie's peak to 6'0" max.

another one. Carl weathers is part of this big group of hollywood movie stars with overestimated heights.
above, he looks max 5'11" with you rob.

When this comedy will be over?

So please rob, you should downgrading carl weathers at least of an inch.

He is more 6'0.5 , 6'1 peak.
Nicks said on 14/Apr/14
Do most of the tall actors you meet have large heads and facial features? All the ones I've met have unusually large heads. Maybe the camera favors bigger faces.
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't say I've experienced that. Naturally the taller you are the more chance your head size will be in proportion and be a bit more than average.]
1.82 said on 13/Apr/14
1.85 is correct
chucker said on 14/Feb/14
I believe Carl was a weak 6'1" at his peak. No way 6'2", not even close. I met him in the early 90s. Super nice guy!
Lorne said on 30/Jan/14
Yeah, it makes 6'1.5 for Arnie in 20's and 30's believable, along with edging out Ton Aenold, but other times, I am convinced 186cm! Arnie is a tricky one, for sure...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jan/14
I think this guy is good evidence that Arnold could've been a weak 6ft2.
Lorne said on 20/Jan/14
He did look shorter than Arnie, a solid 6'1, but not much over, 186cm max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Dec/13
@theshredder: I agree
the shredder said on 10/Dec/13
He looks not even 6'1 , his peak was about 6'1.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Dec/13
He's listed at 6ft2 and 6ft3 in college football. My deduction is that the former is a morning height that he was measured and the latter is height in football boots? Just another prime example of athletes getting overbilled.
Lenad is sexy said on 8/Dec/13

6 foot.
Lorne said on 22/Sep/13
Wow, wow this guys hair isn't even gray, and just a cm or so of height loss? Time has been kind to him. Or perhaps him to time... And seeing him with lift less Stallone in training vide, I'd give him 186cn peak, today still a very solid 184cm, maybe just a fraction shy of 6ft1.
Kyuss said on 20/Sep/13
6.05 peak,,hollywood bump up again.
Yaspaa said on 7/Sep/13
You couldn't tell in Predator, they were together 2 times , in one Arnie looked taller, in the other, Weathers.
richie said on 29/Aug/13
Don't think Carl could ever have been shorter than 6'1", he had close to 3 inches on Stallone who did wear lifts I believe and was almost as tall as Arnie in Predator
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/13
Looked minimum 4in taller than Stallone in Rocky through to Rocky 4.

"Peak height was 6ft 1.5in (187cm)"
"Carl Weathers height is 6ft 0.75in (185cm)"

Looked 186cm with Sandler
Yaspaa said on 7/Aug/13
The guy is fit and healthy, minimal height loss.
alan b. said on 17/Jul/13
6'1"??? another fake. This Carl Weathers (peak) was 5'11"-6ft.
people have no idea about height proportions, no idea, unbelievable. All those action movie stars, like him, schwarzenegger, stallone, willis, ferrigno, all them overestimated.---

So Rob when you met him h didnt look as short as 6'0.5 in more like 6'0.75 in at peak h dosnt realy look taller so 6'1 or 1.25 tops now 6'0.75
[Editor Rob: he could look 184/5 range I think, between 6ft 0.5 up to 6ft 1]

6'0 barefoot. 183cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Dec/12
If he's still 6ft1(185.5cm) then I suppose even 6ft2(188cm) peak isn't out of the question. He's 64, almost 65. He looked minimum 5in taller than Stallone (probably 5ft9-5ft10) in the ring barefoot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/12
186-187cm peak, Rob?
[Editor Rob: was he a little shorter than arnie 25 years ago, I think he was so a decent 6ft 1, 186 isn't impossible, against sly at times I think he could vary in height, or maybe it's more Sly who varied in height with varying footwear]
msn87 said on 26/Nov/12
Looks 183-84 cm with Rob. Looked 185-86 cm with Arnold (187 cm) in Predator.

He was about 1/2 inch shorter than Arnold in Predator. Arnold was 6'2 id give this guy 6'1 & 1/2.

Was 0.5.in shorter than Arnold in Predator.

Schwarzenegger 6ft1.75(187cm), Weathers 6ft1.25(186cm)

To be honest I see him around 184cm (6'0 1/2"). Maybe a tad taller in the morning, like 185 or 186? Who knows!
Dmeyer said on 19/Aug/12
Sly did a good job to never look 4 in under weathers or arnie
tom said on 15/Aug/12
He looks like marcus allen w/o the mustache. He still looks a strong 6'1". Saw Rocky 3 today --they use so many odd angles when Stallone in the scene.
tuite said on 1/Aug/12
all the people said sly is between 5,8 and 5,9 that is your height right rob=? with carl you looks like much more small than sly next to carl were carl wearing lifts?
Debeaux said on 29/Jul/12
You people do know that you that as a former NFL player you can look up his official height and weight on NFL.com. At age 23 he was 6'2, 220 lbs.
Connor said on 17/Jun/12
Why put him at 6ft 1 Rob? he doesnt really look anywhere near 185cm to me, in the top photo he's more like 5ft 11.5 although hes slouching, however he may look 6ft (183-184cm)if he stood up straight, carl could've been 6ft 1 or 6ft 1.5 in his prime same as arnold schwarzenneger they both have the same posture in Predator but I dont think either of them was 188cm just like carl claimed as his height in his statement,he might've been a full 6ft 2 in his teenage years it is not impossible, probably was 187 cm in the films though.

Is 6 ft 0.75 now and 6'1.25 peak possible
[Editor Rob: I saw him again a few weeks ago and he's likely still close to 6ft 1 but under it is possible.]
Starchild said on 16/Jun/12
6'0" even or 6'0.25". He is noticably shorter than schwartzenegger in predator and i don't buy arnie ever being over 6'1.5". Also in rocky it would have been far too difficult to span the difference onscreen between carl and 5'9" stallone if he was much over 6 foot Imo.
tom said on 9/Jun/12
6-2 i think is his promo height,6'05" imo.
Henrik said on 13/Feb/12
At his peak, he might have been 6'1.5" (187cm) in the morning. I'd give him no more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/12
Fluctuated between 186cm-188cm in his prime
Today probably sees from 184cm-186cm
Solid 6ft1

A very tall cast for predator. I always thought Carl appeared the smallest though I have not seen the film in a while.

No Viper - he looked taller than Weathers.

Didnt Arnold actually look shorter when they gripped hands together in the beginning?
CarbonM5 said on 14/Aug/07
How can Weathers be listed at 6-1 yet looks much shorter than Arnold who some debate as being shorter than 6ft???!?? Because, in my opinion, Weathers is 6 to 6-1 and Arnold is 6-2.
Jason said on 20/Jul/07
Carl Weathers never looked 6'2'' to me, either. 6'1'' sounds right.
Viper said on 20/Jul/07
Arnold never hit 6-2 in his life. 99 percent of everyone here even agrees with that now.
Marty said on 18/Jul/07
Arnold was a legit 6'2 in his younger years, stop the downgrading guys, it gets redundant. How can someone use the "biceps bulging scene" from Predator to judge who's taller between Arnie and Weathers ? The camera angle they took is terrible to judge the height of any of those two compared to one another. Stallone's definitaly no taller than 5'10 barefoot, and Weather was at least 6'1 - 6'1.5 barefoot back then.
dmeyer said on 4/Jul/07
arnie did look 1 in taller so arnie was a genuine tall guy
anonymous said on 27/Jun/07
viper, where on earth are you getting "5-11" from in predator. he looked damn close to 6`2.
Eddie said on 22/Jun/07

Ejel Khan said on 6/Mar/07
I met Carl carl at an autograph signing in UK. He stood up,I stood next to him to take a photo. I'm 5'9" he was 4ins taller.
dmeyer said on 2/Feb/07
arnie was 2 to 2.5 cm over him in predator and carl was about 186 or 187 rocky looked only 2.5 inches shorter so sly can look 5'11 even in rocky with no heeled trainers weird
Stephen said on 14/Sep/06
I think Carl is 6'05" without shoes. He may very well be 6'1". I never met him in person. In the movie "Predator" he looked to be very close in height to Arnold.
Glenn said on 29/Jun/06
I agree dmeyer.
dmeyer said on 29/Jun/06
i think stallone is 5'9 or 10 barefeet but easily look 5'11 with some shoes on
Edward said on 30/May/06
Met Carl 4 weeks ago in the U.K signing Auto's, Stood next to him and I'm 5'8 he was no more then 6 feet tops! Nice guy got a photo of him with my daughter!
Glenn said on 25/May/06
Plant has nothing to do with this,but its the only one of Robs I disagree with the most.Ill ask around about Carl again.you could be right.
Viper652 said on 25/May/06
Ayreon, linebackers can be on the short side or very tall. Most linebackers are between 6-0 to 6-3, so I dont get your reasoning that they cant be tall.
Glenn said on 24/May/06
One friend of mine who is 6ft.5,said Carl was taller.and alot of you people never read what Rob says on top of the page.he is pretty accurate.I may disagree on some,but we all disagree.having Robert Plant at 5-11 is too low.
Glenn said on 21/May/06
I just felt you had attitude in that post.you could be right about him.he did look short next to Ford,but tall according to my friends.I never met him.most evidence points him closer to 6-1 though.
Glenn said on 20/May/06
Thats not what the vast majority says.Im better than you at juding and more mature.I only act immature when someone gets stupid.

[Editor Rob:

just as an aside, old contributer Larry says Hi to the folks on here who read his posts...maybe, he might come back in the future and post, hopefully! He is on the road to recupuration!

Glenn said on 19/May/06
Well thats what my friend told me.the shortest he is,is 6-1.you watch your DVDS and Ill meet the stars in the flesh.YOU FORGET ITBUDDY.dont get stupid with me.my friend is 6-1,and he said he was taller.heels? lifts? who knows.Ford is 6-1,not 5-11 like some people think.read what Rob says on every page,he is pretty accurate,instead of downgrading people constantly like most folks to make one feel good about themselves.I speak the truth.Im glad I ripped you a new a**hole.there was no need for attitude.get what you give.
Glenn said on 17/May/06
Thinking back on a friends story,maybe even 6-2.
Glenn said on 16/May/06
He is 6-1.
Paul said on 30/Apr/06
Met Carl today. Very Nice guy. I'm 5'11 and he was about a few inches taller than me. His hands were HUGE though.
M1ghty said on 5/Mar/06
How can you put Carl @ 6'1 and Arnold @ 6'0 editor Rob ..?
Height Tracker said on 13/Feb/06
Carl Weathers probably really is 6'1". In addition, I watched Predator just recently. At the beginning, when he and Arnie bulge biceps, Weathers does seem slightly shorter. However, they could have been wearing different footwear or lifts, etc. There was one scene though where Arnold and Carl Weatehrs are both wearing the same exact boots and they get in each other's faces. Specifically this is the scene where Arnie confronts Weathers about how he set them up and stuff. In this scene, Weathers seems around an inch taller, leading me to believe that Arnie's height in predator was about 6'-6'.5"
Viper652 said on 9/Feb/06
Arnie looks no taller then 5-11 in Predator. Weathers is about 6-1.
Arthur said on 8/Feb/06
interesting, why in "predator", he seems taller than Arnold. To me, he is at least 6-2.
TNTinCA said on 8/Feb/06
I am curious: if the statement above indicates that Carl was shorter than Arnie in that movie (which was obvious), how come Arnie's height on celebheights is less than that of Carl's?
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Aug/05
From gossip newsgroup: "Carl Weathers is a LOT smaller and less imposing in RL than on screen, he was also nice"
Ball-A-Hallic said on 31/May/05
I heard from a friend that Weathers is only 5'11,5'11.5 tops he might of been 6'0.5 in his prime,but in Happy Gilmore he looks no more than 3 inches over 5'9 Adam Sanders.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 3/Apr/05
In Rocky Sly's looks 5'11 and Apollo(Weathers)is about 6'2 but they say they boost their heights up in the movie cause when Apollo fights The Russian Ivan Drago Apollo is towered by him and Drago's only 6'5 and Apollo looks about 6'0 compared to Drago
Mr. R said on 12/Mar/05
He's not quite 6'2". He may be just over 6'1". I spoke to him at both funerals, and he was maybe 1.5 inches taller than me, no more.
Anonymous said on 11/Mar/05
No... he's juts about 6'2. A true example is "Predator"...
Mr R said on 18/Feb/05
Surprisingly taller than expected - they must have done a lot for those camera angles in Rocky - saw at both Carroll O'Connor's and Robert Urich's funerals.
