Danimal he's 6 years younger than Arnold
Danimal says 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 says 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 says on 9/Jul/14
He is not standing at his fullest
keith says on 6/Jul/14
6 foot
DMEYER says 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 says on 22/May/14
To me hé looks 182cm in the pic with but could easily be 2-3cm with better posture you can tell hé 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 says 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...

Big disparity between Weathers and Stallone in this behind the scenes clip

Haaa
DMEYER says on 5/May/14

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 says on 4/May/14
Considering everything hé does look aleast 184cm/6ft0.5 with rob and possibly 6ft0.75/185cm as rob saw him

Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 4/May/14
I'd give him 6'1.25".
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. 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. 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.
rockfellas says on 2/May/14
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 says 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 says 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.
rockfellas says on 30/Apr/14
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.
the shredder says on 15/Apr/14
He is more 6'0.5 , 6'1 peak.
Nicks says 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 says on 13/Apr/14
1.85 is correct
chucker says 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!
Rhonda says on 1/Feb/14
He was always a strong 6ft.
Lorne says 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 says on 21/Jan/14
I think this guy is good evidence that Arnold could've been a weak 6ft2.
Lorne says on 20/Jan/14
He did look shorter than Arnie, a solid 6'1, but not much over, 186cm max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 15/Dec/13
@theshredder: I agree
the shredder says on 10/Dec/13
He looks not even 6'1 , his peak was about 6'1.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says on 8/Dec/13
184cm up straight
George says on 30/Oct/13
184cm. Maybe 184.5
miko says on 16/Oct/13
He's a 6 footer these days.
josey wales says on 27/Sep/13
6 foot.
Lorne says 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 says on 20/Sep/13
6.05 peak,,hollywood bump up again.
Yaspaa says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 7/Aug/13
The guy is fit and healthy, minimal height loss.
alan b. says 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.---

LAMB2157 says on 5/May/13
IM 6FT TALL AND MET CARL AT THE COMISARRY AT UNVERSAL STUDIOS HOLLWOOD SOME YEARS AGO HE'S ABOUT 5'10"---------
Stark says on 23/May/13
Carl used to play football for the Oakland Raiders. Former team mate, Kenny Stabler mentioned in his biography that Carl was approximately 5'11".-----

NO NEED TO SAY MORE.
Kyuss says on 15/Jul/13
Both him and Schwarzenegger claim 6-2" which is wishful..carl 6-0.3/4 or 6-1" peak and not much less now a days,arnie good 1/2" under 6-0" now.
Rey says on 14/Jul/13
I can see 6 feet and/or .50 or .75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Jun/13
Peak height was 6"1.5"(187cm).
Today looks fractionally less than 6"1".
Connor 184cm says on 22/Jun/13
He looks awesome for a 62 year old and still looks quite young his skin is great not one wrinkle on him 184cm for this guy and of of my favourite actors.
Connor 184cm says on 21/Jun/13
Rob carl is maybe 184cm today?
[Editor Rob: he's in that zone I think were he can look 6ft 0.5-1]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Jun/13
186cm peak, Rob?
[Editor Rob: not impossible]
Emil says on 17/Jun/13
He looks really good for 62 years old in the picture with you, Rob.
[Editor Rob: still a fit guy aswell]
Mr. R says on 25/May/13
Carl is a surprisingly tall 6-1. I see him around Hwood.
Stark says on 23/May/13
Carl used to play football for the Oakland Raiders. Former team mate, Kenny Stabler mentioned in his biography that Carl was approximately 5'll". He went on to say that 5'll" was a tad small for an NFL linebacker.

jimmy says on 27/Mar/13
Does Apollo Rob looks taller in person than Kellan Lutz?Because look at them beside 6'5" measured former NFL player Michael Strahan:

Click Here
Click Here

Apollo looks 6'.5" here.But the blond guy looks at least 6.2"(I have always suspected him as a lift-wearer).How do u explain this?
[Editor Rob: they aren't much different in person]
Dmeyer says on 15/Feb/13
So Rob when you met him hé didnt look as short as 6'0.5 in more like 6'0.75 in at peak hé 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]
Bakura says on 17/Jan/13
187cm peak and 184 nowadays.
LG69 says on 12/Jan/13
6'0.5"
Stephen says on 8/Jan/13
184 in the top pic no more.
Aragorn 5\'11 says on 2/Jan/13
6'0 barefoot. 183cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says 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 says on 26/Nov/12
Looks 183-84 cm with Rob. Looked 185-86 cm with Arnold (187 cm) in Predator.
The Exorcist says on 11/Nov/12
Peak,
Weathers: 6'1"
Schwarzenegger: 6'1.5
Stallone: 5'9"

Today,
Weathers: 6'0.5
Schwarzenegger: 6'0"
Stallone: 5'8.5
greg says on 3/Nov/12
He was about 1/2 inch shorter than Arnold in Predator. Arnold was 6'2 id give this guy 6'1 & 1/2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Oct/12
Was 0.5.in shorter than Arnold in Predator.

Schwarzenegger 6ft1.75(187cm), Weathers 6ft1.25(186cm)
Frank says on 25/Sep/12
See only about 6ft !!! NFL stats also lie i met a Pro Football Player who was shorter than he was listed
satchy says on 7/Sep/12
max 6ft max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Sep/12
"Carl Weather's height is 6 ft 0.5 in (184cm)"
"Peak height was 6 ft 1.25 in (186cm)"

:)
Jose says on 2/Sep/12
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 says on 19/Aug/12
Sly did a good job to never look 4 in under weathers or arnie
tom says 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 says 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 says 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.
Hob says on 28/Jul/12
he was not over 6'0.5 nowadays.
Connor says 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.
Dmeyer says on 17/Jun/12
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 says 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 says on 9/Jun/12
6-2 i think is his promo height,6'05" imo.
Henrik says 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 says on 12/Feb/12
Fluctuated between 186cm-188cm in his prime
Today probably sees from 184cm-186cm
Solid 6ft1
