How tall is Dolph Lundgren

Dolph Lundgren's Height

6ft 2.75in (190 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 4.25in (194 cm)
Swedish actor best known for roles in films such as Rocky 4, Showdown in Little Tokyo, Masters of the Universe, Red Scorpion, Dark Angel and The Expendables. In Impact magazine, he revealed that initially in his career, his domineering stature caused him some problems, saying that he "Was turned down at my first audition for Rocky 4 for being too tall. I was 6ft 5in and you were supposed to be 6ft 3in maximum. I didn't know what the casting call was for and I just showed up, they asked me how tall I was, I said 6ft 5in and they said "Next!". In the Mid 1980's he also stated "I'm about 195cm" and "6ft5 and a half", although more recently on tv4's website, it mentioned: "Du รคr 198 cm lฤบng." - "Nej, 193 tror jag att det ska vara", which basically asked him if he was 1.98m, to which Dolph said "no, 193cm".
His action oriented film roles over the last 25 years has contributed to at least an inch of height loss by 2016, a year in which I managed to meet him at the London Film Con event (I had a 1/4 inch more sneaker). In 2012 he mentioned his weight: "I'm 6ft 5, weigh about 17 and a half stone [245 pounds] and take size 12 shoes"

He looks 189cm now. He never was 194cm, maybe 192 cm in peak.

Off topic but doesn't Dolph look like Cameron Diaz's twin brother? Lol
Jordan87 said on 22/Apr/17
Rob with the rib shot on Glen !!! Funny enough I live and work in queens ny And have seen Glenn twice in my life since 2008 on the 7 train, never close enough to judge height though.
Editor Rob: I'd always recommend anybody in NY who sees Glenn, never to talk about height, keep to Music or Bigfoot ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

I keep hoping I can return to America one day, maybe in 2019 ๐Ÿ˜
Arch Stanton said on 22/Apr/17
A guy like The Rock to me looks like he'd weigh easily 40 pounds heavier than Dolph at a very similar height. Never only 15 pounds difference between them.

Rob, do you think he is concious that he has shrunk? Or probably he hadnt measured himself and had not notice it?
Editor Rob: he's a reasonably smart guy, I'm sure he is aware that he's lost a bit of height, but probably not as much as he thinks...until he goes under the stadiometer, then he'll be wanting a Height Mind-Wipe.

I think he did get measured in the gym a year or two back as he came up with a figure like 191.5cm. I'm sure he did measure it as it seemd too precise, but Dolph always works out in the early morning..
RisingForce said on 22/Apr/17
It's funny though that Dolph was giving himself an extra 1.5" claiming 6'5" in 2012 when he was really 6'3.5" max. But hey, that's better than giving himself an extra 2" like he did at times in the 80s. 195 cm would have made the 6'6" claim at least make sense in shoes, though I suppose if he was the height Rob gives him, he could have been 6'5.5" in some shoes, hence that claim and then decided to round that up to 6'6" at other times. A lot of men who lose height don't adjust their clains. Look at Clint Eastwood claiming 6'4" in 2003!
RisingForce said on 22/Apr/17
I'm not at all convinced on a full 2" height loss either since I believe he's gone from 193 cm to 189-190 so 1.25" or 1.5" loss, but I must say he really could look a towering 195 cm, such as Showdown in Little Tokyo, which is what I use to think he was until I saw that he had dropped below 6'4" by his early 50s, which makes 195 unlikely, imo. He was 6'3.5" from about age 52-55 so losing over an inch by that age is improbable.

James B,

Tyson could punch harder than Lesnar I'm Sure despite being outweighed by 60 pounds. Lesnar however is alot stronger than Both Dolph and Tyson as far as the ability to lift people up and slam them around ( Functional Strength).

Tyson however would punch much better then Lesnar do to a combo of speed, Power, and Technique.

Dolph Maxed out his Bench at 300lbs ( he Admitted this). Lesnar did 475 pounds.

Lesnar is lot Physically stronger than Dolph, there is no contest there my dude.
Thomas Veil said on 20/Apr/17
Looks 6'2 in the pic with Rob. I'd give Dolph 6'3 prime easily
Arch Stanton said on 20/Apr/17
A few years back James Dolph did look more 215-220 range. But as he approaches 60 he is carrying a bit more body fat than he did, which is natural as he ages and testosterone lowers. Still in great shape though. As Rob says, I think he looks more in the 230s range now, 245 is more than I'd have thought. Naturally he has a more athletic frame than bulky frame typical of a bodybuilder, his muscle mass is the product of years of hard training most days.

James B,

You mean in an MMA match with rules? Dolph would prolly have better striking as Lesnar was never a GREAT Striker but once Lesnar got a feel for MMA he beat Mir. Mir is a decent striker and would have much better Submissions than Dolph.

As Far as strength and Functional Power, Dolph comes no where close to Lesnar. If Lesnar Grabbed Dolph he would throw him around. Lesnar weighed in at 265 but on Fight Night he would come in at 280 pounds usually. Dolph was 245 at his biggest. Lesnar would Cream him.

Dolph has martial arts Skills no Doubt, but Once a Guy like Lesnar grabs you, your done.

Dolph would have a slight height advantage over Brock, and Possible a Longer reach. Dolph has Long arms ( So Does Lesnar)

My Bet would be On Lesnar though.



Tyson in his prime only weighed 218 pounds at 5ft10 and I don't think Brock lesner could have won against him in term of strength

Click Here He does still look pretty big actually, near 240 perhaps isn't impossible but I wouldn't have guessed him over that. If you look at the distance between his jaw and bottom of chest though he must have an enormous lung capacity!!!


Arch on celeb weights he's listed 215 pounds and in fact here's your comment from 2013



Arch Stanton says on 18/Apr/13
Yes currently around 215-220 pounds. Peak was 240-250 pounds. He's naturally thin build and has to work very hard to maintain muscle mass like Jackman does. He deceived everybody in his prime into thinking he was a classic mesomorph.
PLB said on 18/Apr/17
Well Dolph is a little taller than I am (or I should say than I was before the accident). I'm only six four. But Dolph only wears a size 12 shoe? I wear size fifteen and in some brands size sixteen. I have big feet. Dolph seems to have little baby feet.

I also doubt if his IQ is really 160. I have no doubt that he is smart but 160 is four standard deviations above the mean. The average Nobel Prize winner in the sciences only has an IQ of about 140 or 145. This sounds like a fabrication of his publicist.

There are of course many movie players who are taller than he is, but the really tall guys play monsters not characters. Six four - as he says in his anecdote - is pretty much the ceiling for major stars. Paul Bethany and Alexander Skarsgarde seem to lie about their heights so as to appear to be shorter.
James B said on 17/Apr/17
Rob a 5ft8 man maybe does not look that short next to a 190cm man?
Editor Rob: it can depend on body proportions, width...a skinnier 6ft 2.5-2.75 guy with a small head might look taller than a guy like dolph does.

Dolph 245 and The Rock 260 pounds? No way that's accurate.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Apr/17
Rob do you think he looks 17 and a half stone nowadays too? Peak in the 80s, yes he looked it but can't see it now. He looks at least 20 pounds lighter than he did fully beefed up in the 80s. Klitchko looks a lot bigger than Dolph now and weighs about 245.
Editor Rob: yeah that range is quite possible today, maybe pushing 235-40.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/17
I'm not convinced he's lost a full 2in but I am convinced that he was no less 6ft4 in the 80's and more likely a bit over it. So might still measure near 6ft3 today
James B said on 16/Apr/17
Rob you don't look that short next to Dolph
Editor Rob: well he's definitely not 6ft 4 anymore.
Jordan87 said on 16/Apr/17
Dolph has naturally very very wide shoulders. Some of the lanky guys in my college gym years ago would pound their shoulders for all kind of results when I'm reality dolph would still dwarf them , even at his current age. Shoulders are shoulders, genetics are genetics.

James, Dolph isn't going to assault me for saying it's ridiculous for him to claim he could take on Tyson in his prime. If he was misquoted then I'd tell him to blame the writer who misquoted him. Besides I like Dolph and have been a fan since I was a kid.


He looks very intimidating doesn't he though?. One of those guys who still looks intimidating even when he looks happy

James B,

Dolph Would Not get past 1 minute with Lewis. Lewis's reach was of a man who was 7 Feet tall and he had tons of skills and immense power. Any Pro Boxer would wash Dolph up in a boxing match.

I still don't think Dolph Actually made the Comment about Tyson. Like I said he is a smart man.
James B said on 12/Apr/17
A very big boxer like Lennox Lewis would do more than cave Dolphs face since Lewis was always more powerful than Tyson.

I wonder if Dolph was have the cockiness to say he could thrash Lewis?

Arch Stanton said on 11/Apr/17
Well James, saying to Dolph that he's a bit flashy would surely go down better than telling him he's going to die of cancer soon as he's over 6 ft and over 200 pounds ;-)
Dolph is a great guy, but embraces his status much like Hasselhoff. Nothing wrong with that. I'm sure Dolph has been treated by everybody like Superman since the mid 80s, so not surprising he thinks like that what addressing his fans.


Will smith is quite flashy too isn't he?
Jordan87 said on 11/Apr/17
Well For starters, Mike Tyson would cave Dolph's face in. And its actually hard to believe this Dolph Actually said that.
Tyson had a habit of Knocking guys out that were Dolph's Size and bigger.

Dolph is a very smart guy ( Supposed IQ of 160) so I doubt Dolph said or thought he could have beaten Tyson.

Dolph seems like a nice guy to me from what I have seen of him in interviews.

Also- easy enough for you guys to call him a show off hiding behind a keyboard isn't it? Say it to his face I dare you? lol
RisingForce said on 9/Apr/17
Arch, don't get me wrong, I like Dolph, but saying he could beat Tyson in '88!
Pierre said on 9/Apr/17
He look a little under 6"2'or maybe 6"2' next to Big Jay and next to Rob imo,i don't see more,Dolph is slouching a little on Rob and Rob has not a very straight posture.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Apr/17
Rising says: " Now we know why he was claiming 6'6", inflated ego!"

I don't generally follow what Dolph does but I checked out his Twitter today seeing if he posted anything about the recent Stockholm attacks. He does have a big ego, you can tell that by looking through his posts. He's a show off alright, but if I was him I'd probably be the same.
S.J.H said on 3/Apr/17
No obligation. I look at the good posture of contributor Big Jay with Lundgren face tilt down more and make a compare on Lundgren with rob tilt down more than Lundgren and overall look at it, i think Big Jay is 172cm with sneakers not barefoot as he look little over 6' lower than Lundgren and rob only look 5.25' lower than Lundgren. I check by eye level and top of head if lundgren look up straight will be 16cm taller than jay but 13cm taller than rob.
berta said on 27/Mar/17
i promise you guys if you really was 6 foot 2 you would like to be 6 foot 4. you almost always want to be taller than you are axcept from 6 foot 6 and taller i guess. almost everyone i know that is in 6`1-6`3 lie about there height and cliam atleast half inch more. but the few guys i know that are 6 foot 4 and over are telling the truth. I have said it before and say it again i dont feeel huge at littel over 6 foot 5. there is always people taller than me in a crowd. i think average height here in sweden really are 6 feet these days. back in my school 10 years back we did the ave3rage height on guys that were 16 years old in my class, the average was 182 and all of those guys grew about 1 inch more. so in my class the average was probably about 184 these days.we where about 5-6 guys in the 191-197 range and about 7-8 guys that were 185-188.
RisingForce said on 23/Mar/17
Yeah, I'd like to be at least 6 feet, but probably not over 6'2". The full 6'6" claim was right when Rocky 4 came out so maybe he claimed it to hype himself up with the Drago image. Weekly World News also listed him at 6'6" and 240 Jan 26, 1988 and February 16th of that same year. The former quoted Dolph claiming he could beat Mike Tyson! Now we know why he was claiming 6'6", inflated ego! Now, I'm certain Dolph is either 189 or 190 cm standing straight, but definitely no more. He still seemed more a solid 6'3" range during the first 2 Expendables. He's dropping height fast!
berta said on 23/Mar/17
i dont think dolph have lost this mutch height. he may have been a guy that was wearing high healed shoes in the 80`s. even in the photo with 184 billy zane from 2004, he doesnt look taller than 189. He really could look like a big 6 foot 4 guy and over but what if he never was any taller than 192 and today 189-190 even that is extremely mutch to loosa at his age. i think its almost impossible to be in that good shape and loose 4 cm
Canson said on 21/Mar/17
@Rising Force: I believe you and agree! I for sure no way in hell would want to be 6'6" (I'm 6'4 and change myself). That is rare unless you are a celeb. But Lundgren is a celeb with an ego lol
Adijos said on 19/Mar/17
Peak 6'5" and actual 6'3".
RisingForce said on 12/Mar/17
Canson, he actually claimed the full 6'6" once too!(in 1985) A 2" height inflation is rare for someone so tall, but I agree with you on 193 cm peak and 189 cm today.
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@Jack: he was shorter than Conan by about an inch and Conan peak was a strong 6'3 max. dolph may be 188/189 today
Canson said on 6/Mar/17
@Danimal: he claimed 6'5.5 once which is absurd. So rampage at 194 is less than what he claimed meaning Dolph. But I'd go with 193 prime maybe and 189 today 188 is possible too

Dolph was about 192 in his peak.

No where near the nearly 6'6 he claimed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Feb/17
You ALWAYS give more height than they even claim for themselves. He was NEVER over 193cm (6'4"). Today, he is 188cm (6'2") at best. Yes, I disagree with Rob's listing.



Says the guy who thinks Tim Robbins is 6ft7 and Morgan Freeman is 6ft4โ€ฆ
abcd said on 25/Feb/17
with Rob looks like 186
RisingForce said on 25/Feb/17
I don't know if the difference was actually as big as it looks there since Dolph might be slouching a bit with his arm on the girl, but Hoff was definitely taller and only wearing sneakers Click Here Click Here But this was several years ago as you said. It's a pretty interesting comparison because Hasselhoff is half a decade older.
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@Rampage: I doubt he was ever 194. Maybe 192-193 and 195-196 with shoes and today 188-189 due to posture
Danimal said on 22/Feb/17
RisingForce said on 15/Feb/17
It's strange he claimed both 6'5.5" and even 6'6" when he was younger. I think they described him as 6'4" on the back of the Rocky 4 video release, and seeing him now at no more 6'3" or even a little under while still only in his late 50s makes me think 6'4" flat was his exact peak height.

He already looked to be a couple of inches shorter than Conan Obrien several years ago.

Risingforce,

Correct I have that same rocky 4 box ( VHS) it lists him as 6'4 and 261 pounds.

FYI dolph was about 240 for the role( his own admission)

Yup, it does list him as 6'4" and 261 pounds, but he was a legit 240 pounds.
Jordan87 said on 22/Feb/17
Pierre,

Dolph Is clearly losing more height than Rob. Clear as day.

You Are saying you know he is leaning but isn't loosing height? Clarify that please.
RisingForce said on 22/Feb/17
Jordan, I remember reading he got up to about 248-249, iirc, certainly not 260+ either way. He was too lean for that. 6'4" flat is perfect peak and no less, but why on earth would he lie and say he was 6'6" in a 1985 interview? At least with the 6'5.5" claim you can figure it may have been his height in thick shoes, but maybe he thought 6'6" would fit the image and helped hyping the movie, that's all I can come up with.
Pierre said on 22/Feb/17
@Jordan(comment 03/Feb/17)=Dolph is not perfectly straight but don't lose really height imo and Rob isn't perfectly straight too

yeah danimal i think most guys agree that clint was not 193 never looked it. more like 191-92 and now 183 about 8-9 cm loss and dolph is already up at 4 cm dolph will lose more than clint who was about 190 at the age of 60. he had lost 2 cm at most at this age. dolh have a chanse that he mayh be 180 when he is 90
Jordan87 said on 3/Feb/17
Peter 179cm.

Dolph Looks 6'1 In the First Pic but With Rob he is clearly Leaning. Don't know why you can't see that. Agreed he may not be much over 6'1, ( Especially with Big J) but with Rob if standing straight he would hit 6'2" Easily.
Peter 179cm said on 3/Feb/17
I dont get how anyone would see 6'2 here unless Rob has grown and is actually 5'9 now xD!...He looks identical to the 184 challenger here even considering footwear.I don't buy anything more than 188 at night.
Balrog said on 2/Feb/17
Peak: 6'4.25''
Now: 6'2.5''

Looks max 6'2'' next to Rob but with footwear disadvantage, so I can give him a .5 more.
AlexItaly said on 2/Feb/17
I think this guess is correct, he was very tall at 194 and now he has lost some centimetres and is tall but not in an exaggerated way. My threshold from tall to very tall is 190 cm.

IMO, he looks more 6'2" than 6'2.75" on this pictures, but who cares, he's anyway a really tall guy.

Disagree very tall is 97.5% percentile and up, or the top 2.5% in height, which he is now clearly no longer in,

Well just look at once 6'4" (Dolph's peak height) Clint Eastwood who now at 86 years old is max 5'11" (5" height loss).
----

Losing 5 inches and still walking this earth? good luck with that one (you would be in a wheelchair). Clint was never 6'4 to begin with but more like 6'2, and is still 6ft today. Dolph has probably lost 1 inch, i cant see him taller than 6'3 today but peak was minimum 6'4, he was for sure taller than Hogan peak vs peak.
Sonny Black said on 31/Jan/17
My Dad who's 6'3 met him at a Tyson fight in the 80's and said he was basically eye to eye with him, maybe half an inch taller, but from seeing Rocky 4 he was expecting him to be around 6'5 as he believed Stallone was 6'0 or so... Not the case and no internet back then obviously to look it up.

yeah i agree he could look strong 6 foot 4 guy. but i think they always tried to make him look big. he cant really have lost almost 5 cm at his age.we clearly see that he is at best 190. more chanse of 189 today i think
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jan/17
No, he definitely looked a strong 6ft4 guy 20-30 years ago and sometimes even a weak 6ft5.

May have lost an inch or half.

Peter 179cm said on 18/Jan/17
@ jervis Crews doesn't have the best posture either.And the fact that he's been listed 6'2 by the NFL and not 6'3 plus means he's probably just 6'2 if not 187cm.
jervis said on 17/Jan/17
He looks a bit taller than 6ft2.5 listed Terry Crews.Crews must be more 6ft2 flat so.

He probably had lost 3/4" of height that's it. 6'3" peak.

techically impossible 194 peak. he is still too young in the pic far from 60yrs old.
Here apoear 186 cm.
How the hell from 194 to 186 cm at 50 years old????? Guys dom't joke
Pierre said on 14/Jan/17
He look between 6"1' and 6"2' next to Big Jay or Rob imo
Lucho said on 13/Jan/17
I think he just lost 4 cm since Rocky. That said Stallone was only 5'8.75 peak

He was never 6'4 or taller to begin with,there's no way he's lost 5cm already...And neither Eastwood was 6'4,more like a solid 191cm and 180-181cm now.One picture doesn't say alot but it's really hard to imagine Dolph at peak being taller than Challenger 13 and now look nowhere near the 6'3 mark, it's just not believable.And it's not just this photo,there are several more as well with Statham Van Damme Terry Crews Sly Schwarzenegger and the rest of the Expendables cast and Dolph doesn't look taller than 6'2 and sometimes even less than that.Nothing personal ofcourse...
Jordan87 said on 13/Jan/17
Guys,

Dolph Looks 6'1.25" with Big Jay and 6'2.5" with Rob ( When you adjust for his drop in posture and Robs SHoe advantage).

That's a Little Odd to Say the Least. I'd put him around 6'2 nowadays based on the Average of what he looks with Rob and Big J.

For people saying he could not have lost height due to how healthy he looks, is full of crap. Taller people loose more height than SHorter folks and a man his age should be about 3/4" shorter than they were in his prime. Id give him around 6'3" in his Prime.

6'5" is out of the question now. A Full 6'4" could even be hard to pull off.

i wonder when dolph is 85 years old if he is mutch over 6 feet at that age

Just look at 86 year old Clint Eastwood who was once 6'4" like Dolph was and is now max 5'11".
Danimal said on 12/Jan/17
Jim Hopper said on 11/Jan/17
Could it be he was never 6-5.5 peak anyhow?? More Arnie-fake height going here I think.

No one believes that he was 6'5.5" ever. He may have been that height in 1.5" healed shoes at his peak. In other words, he was never over 6'4" flat and is around 6'2" today.
Danimal said on 12/Jan/17
Thereel said on 12/Jan/17
Dolph will be under 6'1" in 10 years at his rate, the sixties is where real height loss picks up at a accelerated rate, in his lifetime I am positively sure he will be under 6'0" even 5 inch height loss isn't of the cards for poor Dolph

Well just look at once 6'4" (Dolph's peak height) Clint Eastwood who now at 86 years old is max 5'11" (5" height loss).
NangaParbat said on 12/Jan/17
Hey Rob :) I am really surprised by your pic with Dolph. It makes me rethink about stallone's height as lower than what it's claimed to be. In your opninon, after looking at all the pics of stallone with Dolph on set of Rocky 4, stallone in his lifts next to other celebrities on red carpet, would sly's height be lower than 174? I really start to think he is max 5'7,5''.. thanks again :))
berta said on 12/Jan/17
rob are you shore that dolph would edge out dwayne johnson with 1cm ? i think they would be the same height
Editor Rob: berta, for Dolph, his range I think is a low 6ft 2.5-2.75, if measured today I feel he'd hit that mark...The Rock I feel now might need an 8-9am measurement to reach 6ft 2.75-3.

I do think if they stood side by side, mostly they'd look quite similar though.

Maybe Dolph Lundgren relax his back posture loose down an inch plus here. Certainly can't see his feet/shoes to tell. But he only look 6'1 with rob
Johan said on 11/Jan/17
Not astounding Rampage, more like frightening. If I have his bad luck I will end up in the 5'11" range ...

Just shows that genetics also play a huge part, here we have a physically fit, middle aged guy who has shrunk an easy 4 cm from peak. Meanwhile you have fat slobs who hit 60 with minimal loss.

@jake I did not disrespect you in any moment. I agree with Rob listing. That's my opinion, and i think you should respect others opinions,
Although you disagree with me. Come on, no one can comment anything else here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jan/17
His height loss is astounding.
Peter 179cm said on 9/Jan/17
@ firecracker Weathers was atleast 185cm at peak as he looked atleast a solid 184 with Rob while in his 60's.
The Exorcist said on 9/Jan/17
I appreciate that In person he may look taller, but he doesn't look 6'2.75" in either of the photos above. With Rob's shoe advantage, and Dolph's probable 5" eye-to-head, I see 6'1.5" - 6'1.75".
jake said on 9/Jan/17
Editor Rob: I thought he could pass for a solid 6ft 4, of course now he has waved goodbye to 6ft 3.
-------------------------------------------------------

Lol men do not lose ALMOST two inches before sixety nice one Rob that tickled me a bit, more like six-three peak six-two and a half today
Pierre said on 9/Jan/17
Picture Dolph/Sly (comment 07/Jan/17)=the shoes of Sly are looking very flat compared to Dolph's shoes.There is a story? about Rocky 4=in the movie the producers wanted that Dolph look like a giant next to Sly.
Mark said on 8/Jan/17
Really surprised that Dolph lost height. Almost two inches. And he has not yet reached the age of sixty yet, when usually height's loss happens . But at his peak he was a strong 6ft4.
firecracker said on 7/Jan/17
lundgren is part of that group of action movie stars that have always lied about their heights (or people behind them did it.) Stallone, schwarzenegger, jc van damme, carl weathers, and also lou ferrigno, all with overestimated heights.

billed heights (peak):
dolph lundgren 6'4.75" (195cm)
s. stallone 5'9" (175cm)
arnold schwarzenegger 6'2" (188cm)
jc van damme 5'9" (175cm)
carl weathers 6'2"(188cm) !!!!!!
lou ferrigno 6'4.75" (195cm)

AHAHHAHAAH

REAL HEIGHTS:
dolph lundgren 6'2"-6'2.75" range (188-190cm)
s.stallone 5'7"-5'8" (170-173cm)
arnold schwarzenegger 5'11.5"-6'0.5"(182-184cm)
jc van damme 5'7"-5'8"(170-173cm)
carl weathers 5'10.5"-5'11" (179-180cm)
lou ferrigno 6'2"-6'2.75"(188-190cm)


stallone and lundgren:Click Here

backstage from "rocky" 1982:Click Here

ahhaha. burt young, first on the left, was 5'6" (168cm),
you can see stallone is max an inch taller!!! MR T was max max 5'10"(178cm) he also had cowboy boots on with 2 inches heels advantage, and carl weathers was as tall as MR T, but like i said MR T worn cowboy boots.


Lundgren and ferrigno were 2 tall guys, but 6'5" (195cm) was simply out of real.
weathers was just a couple of inches over the average (average man size is 5'9"(175cm)
Stallone and van damme were a little bit under the average
schwarzenegger was in the 6ft range, far from the fake 6'2"(188cm)


most don't have idea how tall is a legit (barefoot) 6'3"-6'4"-6'5"....

So i really hope this comedy about those action movie stars will be over as soon as possible.
Michaeljrocks said on 6/Jan/17
The photo with Rob pretty much cements the fact that the majority of the Expendables, Stallone, Statham, Van Damme, Snipes, & Norris are all really in the 5'8 range & nowhere near the 5'10 most of them have been claiming.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jan/17
30 years ago he looked a strong 6ft4 guy at least
Shredder said on 6/Jan/17
Looking at this for a bit , he would look over 6'2 if you give him a fraction and if he stands better. Peak could have been 6'3.5 minimum
Dr. Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorff said on 6/Jan/17
Noticable (more than few Millimeters) height is lost by degeneration of the spinal column.

Dolph shows no symptoms of degeneration (he stands and moves normally).

Conclusion: Dolph is the same maximum height he always once was.
Balrog said on 6/Jan/17
Well, he looks 6'2'' max next to Rob.
kurtz said on 5/Jan/17
peak height 194??? but no thanks!
he is and was btwn 6 2 and 6 3 i don't think he didn't loose not even a single mm.
Peter 179cm said on 5/Jan/17
@ Jordan87 Take a look at my previous comments, i stated that he looks about 185 WITH the lean and flatter footwear. I'm not denying he might be 188-189 range standing tall but i do believe 190cm is too much for him now.
Andrea said on 5/Jan/17
Peter, to me Rob looks right around Dolph's eyelevel... Click Here
He really doesn't look under 186, with all things considered!
msn187 said on 5/Jan/17
Let's be real here. He's not over 6'2 in those pics definitely; could even be a fraction under.
Jordan87 said on 4/Jan/17
Peter179,

Your forgetting dolph is leaning . With shoe advantage of Rob and the lean from dolph is a good 6-6.5" taller than Rob.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Jan/17
He does look just 6'1 and change here, but then it's one photo. Colin Salmon looks 6'3 in his photo with Rob, not reality. Dolph is a guy who would measure taller if stood his best for a measurement. Trust Rob that he wouldn't meassure under 189. But yeah you think of Dolph you'd think he'd look like George Romero did in the photo with Rob, nowhere near it now!
Pierre said on 2/Jan/17
Don't forget celebrities have sometimes advantageous shoes at events.
Editor Rob: Dolph didn't, a fraction less than mine!
Andrea said on 2/Jan/17
And hey, even if I've never seen an entire movie of his (so didn't actually compare him with other people), I am one of those guys who believed he was an easy 6'4 when younger!!!
Jim hopper said on 2/Jan/17
Looks 6-2" max imo
Danimal said on 2/Jan/17
Danimal said on 29/Dec/16
Not sure why you have him at a peak of 6'4.25" Rob. He wasn't over a flat 6'4" peak. Today is looking about 6'2".
Editor Rob: Danimal, in the 80's in stuff like The Punisher I think he could look an honest 6ft 4.


I agree. In the mid 80's/early 90's, he looked massive. But he states in your above quote that he's 193cm (not 198cm), which come out to 6'4" even(even though he told Joan Rivers on the Tonight Show in the mid-late 80's that he was 6'5.5"), so I'm just a little unclear as to where you got the additional .25" when he himself claimed 193cm?
Editor Rob: I thought he could pass for a solid 6ft 4, of course now he has waved goodbye to 6ft 3.
Peter 179cm said on 2/Jan/17
@ Andrea Rob is a good cm over Dolph's eyelevel.Even accounting footwear,the most he can pass for in the pic is 6'1 and that's pushing it.
Also,Brett looks about the same height-wise next to Rob,maybe 1cm smaller and certainly no more than that since both Bret and Dolph have big-sized heads.
Mid190s said on 2/Jan/17
This is quite reality shattering
Andrea said on 2/Jan/17
dmeyer, considering his eyelevel is probably 5 inches range (Rob did mention that his head is 10-10.25 inches long), I would say he looks a decent 6'1 with Rob... Add a quarter inch for footwear difference and he'd be 6'1.25-6'1.5 in the picture! But yeah certainly nowhere near his listing! I remember that guy who met Dolph at the same event and genuinely (he didn't sound like a troll from his other posts) thought he looked 5'11 in person... Now, 5'11 is quite absurd but I can see how some people that recently met him genuinely guessed him 6'-6'1 (maybe those who don't pay attention to footwear difference and look more at eyelevels, when observing heights)! That must be a shocker for those who expect a big 6'4-6'5 guy!!!
Andrea said on 1/Jan/17
Well, the height difference between Dolph and Brett is not that important... Looking at them with you, it is true that there isn't much difference between them, probably 0.5-0.75 inches at most! What is "curious" is that they both look a good inch shorter than what you think they looked! That's all... ๐Ÿ˜Š

Looks 185cm on the pic , rob do you agrรฉรฉ hรฉ is defently not under 189cm
Editor Rob: Dmeyer, I would personally be surprised if just 188cm flat, I feel he has to be 189 measured at least.
Sam said on 31/Dec/16
Doesn't look much taller than 6'1 today... but he was definately 6'3 in his prime. On camera gave a 6'4 impression but I never bought the 6'5 sightings. And it looks like Jay is honest about his own height so its unlikely the two photos can be wrong. 186cm-187cm for Dolph today.
Andrea said on 31/Dec/16
At least do not say that... ๐Ÿ˜…
You could make up a story and say something "I am wearing lifts" or "I'm on my tip toes there" but no... You say "he's standing pretty tall, he doesn't have any camera advantage there,..." How do you explain such a "big" discrepancy with their listings then? Dolph does look 186-7 range with you, Brett 185ish, so yeah there isn't much difference between them! And it's not an opinion, it is a FACT!!! What they really would measure under the stadio or look in person might be well be different, though! I agree... I'm just surprised that in so many photos a good inch went lost, for some reason!!! ๐Ÿ˜จ
Editor Rob: there's always a chance with big Brett's handsome looks I overestimated him ๐Ÿ˜

there really could be only half inch between brett/dolph, would love to measure both these guys.
MrTBlack said on 31/Dec/16
He has indeed lost height but honestly, I still think he'd clear 6'2" at his current height. It's just a shock because he is like one of the examples used in bodybuilding magazines as the epitome of fitness and I would have expected someone like him to only lose 1" max or half inch as he's nearing 60.
Arch Stanton said on 31/Dec/16
@Rob, when was this taken? Did Dolph sitll look very imposing in person despite the height loss? He still looks in excellent shape for any age!
Editor Rob: physically, I think his body is more worn, as though an Orc has taken a sledge hammer and whacked the top of his head.

He is still a relatively big guy though, but definitely some friends were surprised at how 'short' he was.
Arch Stanton said on 31/Dec/16
Dolph has had a hard life as well. I saw a lecture he hgave a few weeks back and he said that after Rocky IV up to the Expendables he was "mostly miserable" and though he still made action films he considered his career a failure. All those action films he made and the heavy training, lost height early. He must have slipped plenty of discs in his back during the making of his films. Even looks 6'1.5 at first glance above but he's dropping height. You'd expect Dolph to look way taller than Rob!
Pierre said on 30/Dec/16
6"2' max imo
berta said on 30/Dec/16
rob now that dolph is 189-190 isnt than evidence that terry crews maybe is more in the 188 range than 189?
Johan said on 30/Dec/16
Great you met him Rob !

I am not surprised by this listing at all, in that episode of Arrow he looked around 2 inches taller than Amell.

I have Stephen at 6'0.75" so give or take a small fraction it seems like a good listing. I sometimes think he is more 6'2.5" but again his posture at times is terrible for such a fit guy.
Andrea said on 30/Dec/16
Yeah, sometimes pictures don't show the real difference... To be fair, it's very rare that celebrities look as tall as listed next to Rob... They generally do look 0.25-0.75 inches shorter than their listings with Big Rob but there are some that look over an inch shorter for some reason! People like Adam Copeland, Brett Dalton or Dolph spring to mind... The photo only proofs that Rob met them and all you can do is trust Rob's estimate!
Editor Rob:
usually with a taller guy I'm at a camera disadvantage, but with a guy like Dalton, the camera was high enough to make nobody have an advantage.

to be fair, Dolph really didn't seem much taller than Brett though!
Kurtz said on 30/Dec/16
185 today, 188 peak max out 189.
Danimal said on 29/Dec/16
Not sure why you have him at a peak of 6'4.25" Rob. He wasn't over a flat 6'4" peak. Today is looking about 6'2".

Johno said on 29/Dec/16
Looks under 6'1 there at his low, around 6'0.75-6'1.
Gerry said on 29/Dec/16
Ive never understood these 6-5 claims for Dolph, the fact is yes he looked tall but around 6-3 max! He's ectomorphic in build he's not a mesomorph by any means so the muscle he has had he's had to work for it but he's never been huge physique wise. In universal soldier he is noticeably shorter than 6-5.5 Ralf Moeller who is standing behind him in the line. The 6-5 claims are ridiculous, Dolph one of these guys who is tall but clearly still feels the need to add 2" to his actual height
Jordan87 said on 29/Dec/16
If he stood straight with Rob I could see 6'2-1/2" which would put him around 6'3-1/2" Peak. In his prime its very well possible he was not even 6'4. I never believed the 6'5 or 6'6 crap.


Dolph however is still in incredible shape at his age. AT 40 years old most people are lucky to still have his build, and his shoulders are still extremely wide. Whether he was 6'3. 6'4, or 6'5, he was a great choice for Drago and carried great body language and poise during that film. Was quite the threatening Villain i'd say. I believed he said he weighed between 230 and 240 for the Drago Role, and his BF percentage had to be really low.
Peter 179cm said on 29/Dec/16
It's simple guys,he looks 184-185cm with Big Rob with slighly less footwear and also drops abit more height.Even if he dropped 3cm more than Rob,he wouldn't be over 188.At least that's what the picture suggests.
berta said on 29/Dec/16
peaka maybe 193 ore slighly under but could look 194 most of the time in movies. BUt hard to believe he was that tall he cant loose 5 cm in this age. now he looks 189-190. In the photo i would say he looks about the height my 188 father would look maybe 1 cm shorter than my father. but he looses height in it. Beside that 186-87 guy you can see that he is 189-190 range still.
jessman said on 28/Dec/16
It's odd. Rob is at his eye-level and this would suggest Dolph is at about 186 cm. But Rob is the height expert in my opinion and has enough familiarity with heights to call it correctly. So if it's 189cm today, my question is what was it at his peak? I do recall Dolph being described as 6'6 in the 1980s. Maybe he was a weak 6'4 or maybe strong 6'3 (192cm). I'm not sure he was ever 6'5.
123 said on 28/Dec/16
I bet you guys thought i was trolling when I estimated Dolph at Six-two MAX, well you can't say that now can you, Rob said he was only 3 cm taller than Big Al who was measured at 6'1", soooooo.......... and lets not forget rob said he could be as low as 6'2 1/2", in light of this new evidence I will concede that Dolph is probably a fraction more than was previously estimated at 6'2 1/4"-6'2 1/2"MAX as opposed to the 1cm less i previously estimated him as, LOL at the people who still think he is 6'3" in light of all this new evidence, I feel bad for Dolph he did used to be VERY tall losing almost two inches at his age is rough he still ain't that old LOL

most likely

peak 6'3 3/4"

now 6'2 1/4"
Shredder said on 27/Dec/16
Sometimes pics are not the true telling of what a person looks in person or measures. Me and Rob both agree that Michael Biehn is over 5'11 in any case. Steven Yeun in person looks over 5'8.
Peter 179cm said on 27/Dec/16
6'2 flat or 188cm is still a possibility then, i just can't believe an 189-190 range for Dolph now.
James B said on 27/Dec/16
Losing 3.75 cm at age 59 is a lot I must say cause even clint Eastwood at the same age only lost 1cm from his peak. But then anythings possible I mean look at hulk hogan at only age 63 he is gone from 6'6 to a less remarkable height of 6'3.

I'd imagine Dolph would probably still be comftably in the 6'3 range if it wasn't for years of heavy weight lifting and action film roles.. i am guessing Dolph will be no taller than 5'11 by his late 80s.

I think its to be expected for very tall people to lose more height at a younger age.
Andrea said on 27/Dec/16
No need to "blur" his face! ๐Ÿ˜‹ I've already seen that guy with Dolph because I'm sure you posted him on here a few years ago (on Henry Ian Cusick's page) and you said he looked about 186 in person... Yeah, Dolph does look a bit taller in the photo, maybe not as much as 3 cms though! Too bad this photo doesn't show his real height, then! Quite useless for "proving" he'd still measure near 6'3! You do hold your own next to Dolph ๐Ÿ˜‰
Editor Rob: You could still make an argument of 189 for Dolph, I wouldn't say it was impossible...
Leonardo 1.73m said on 27/Dec/16
Editor Rob: yes Andrea, I think he is dropping a bit more than me and when measured may well hit near 190 on the nose.

How many height loss you in the photo? @Rob
Andrea said on 27/Dec/16
So, it's all about "feelings"? The question is: is he dropping some height in this picture or not? He really doesn't look more than 186-7, well unless his eyelevel is over 6 inches range, then yeah he wouldn't be less than 6'2.5! Again, did he look near an inch taller than the "6'2 version" of the plumber?
Editor Rob: yes Andrea, I think he is dropping a bit more than me and when measured may well hit near 190 on the nose.

I managed to watch Dolph with a few folk, remember This bloke...he's a con mate and when Dolph greeted him he was about 3cm taller...bear in mind that guy is 186-7 zone up close.
Jordan87 said on 27/Dec/16
Rob, Based on eye level only, doesn't Dolph have you by about 6" there? ( COmparing only eye levels).

Reason I ask is because your right, with his head shape/Size this is difficult. I could see him at 6'2.75ish if he straightened up a bit.

Not sure why he looks shorter with Big Jay * 5'7.75"* and he is standing straighter than he is with you. Very Odd to me.
Peter 179cm said on 27/Dec/16
So Rob,you're saying he's losing 5cm of height with you?? Cause honestly it doesn't look like it given you reach his eyeline in the pic.Maybe you overestimated him?
Editor Rob: Peter, I don't think I'd overestimate, he was walking about like a 6ft 2 range man. I think he will measure taller than he looks, whether it would be as low as 6ft 2 and change or as high as 6ft 2.75, that's the debate really!

With a decent size head on him (10.25 and quite wide) I can see how he gives a smaller impression to people.
Shredder said on 27/Dec/16
Rob , I measured my a friend of mine at 2 am ( we were up all day) at just under 5'8 ( somewhere between 5'7.75 and 5'8 flat , but he was in conserve , so what height do you think is fair for him midday? Just 5'7.5 or 5'7.75? Before measuring him I guessed him he was about 5'8 flat.
Editor Rob: he could hold a 5ft 8 look most of the day, if you caught him at 11am maybe he would creep near 5ft 8.25.

back to Dolph, his head size in person is a solid 10 inch, similar to Ryan McPartlin...I think in photos it can make him seem shorter.
Andrea said on 26/Dec/16
So, what do you think is it going on this time? I have seen him with other congoers and he generally does look around the same range he looks with both you and Big Jay!!! Did he look near a couple inches taller than Big Al and near an inch taller than the plumber in person?
Editor Rob: he was at least 3cm taller than Big Al, I wouldn't rule out 6ft 2.5 for him, but I feel if you measured big Dolph he'd come out a fraction under 6ft 3.
Peter 179cm said on 26/Dec/16
Btw,Hasselhoff looks a good 7-8cm taller than Dolph next to Rob...Even if posture plays a role,that's still ways off the obvious-that Dolph is listed almost 6'3 yet struggles to look even near 6'1 with a verified 5'8 man.
Peter 179cm said on 26/Dec/16
Finally,a picture we can work with-Dolph looks similar with Stephen Amell and Carl Weathers next to Rob:around 184cm.Come on now Rob,lets be honest and say he's nowhere near 190cm even if he had footwear and posture disadvantage...He's a weak 6'2 at most which makes him 187cm,and that's the absolute max i'd argue for him now after looking at the pic.Peak probably no more than 190-191cm so basically 6'3 flat.He was never near 6'4 or 6'5 that's certain.
James B said on 26/Dec/16
With rob I'd say he looks 6'1.5
Powerhouse said on 26/Dec/16
I'd say 6'2.5-6'2.75, by the way by the looks of his face I think he recognized you haha.
Jordan87 said on 26/Dec/16
Looked at the new pic on my phone before, now on my desktop the height different looks smaller.

Rob would you agree he was leaning more than you?

Id give him 6'2.5" in the pic. Never 6'5. Likely 6'3.5" as a peak. So yes , Jervis he was pretty much hyping his height up when he said 6'5, as all actors do, and most men.

A great picture, Dolph still looking Tall.
Andrea said on 26/Dec/16
Great picture, Rob! But let's be honest... He looks nowhere near 6'2.75 with you (and this honestly doesn't surprise me at all)!
You look right around his eyelevel in the photo... I can believe his eyelevel is more 5 inches range than say 4.5, add 1/4 inch for footwear difference and he certainly looks more 6'1.25-6'1.5 (which btw is the same range he can look with Big Jay)!!!
If you tell me he's losing nearly 1.5 inches in posture or whatever (like that Sam Coleman guy), I can buy this listing! Otherwise...
If a guy like Tom Welling looked this short with you, I'd be SHOCKED!!!
Editor Rob: Andrea, at his tallest he is over 6ft 2.

I'm still surprised a guy like Hoff who 6 years or something older still looked noticeably taller in person than Dolph, who is much fitter you'd think!
AAAA said on 26/Dec/16
Nice!!!! Also how frequently are you on the right Rob?? I feel like this is an anomaly to seee. Throwing off my judgement.
The Exorcist said on 25/Dec/16
Hate to say this. He looks a weak 6'1" in the picture with Rob, and not much taller in the pic with Jay.
Jordan87 said on 25/Dec/16
Nice pic rob!!!! This should be interesting. Perhaps with his lean ( looks like he is dropping some posture) and the fact that you have 1/2" more footwear should put him at around 6.5" taller ?

He looks taller with you then with big j imo.
Shredder said on 25/Dec/16
Looks not even 6'2 with you.
grizz said on 25/Dec/16
He's been constantly remarked as a giant in movies. Even in movies after 2010 ( like the Expendables) he's been mentioned as that really big guy. If his current height is true,then I don't understand the reasoning. Terry Crews is literally a fraction shorter than Dolph. Liam Hemsworth is half an inch taller than Dolph and he didn't get any tall comments in Expendables. I have two former classmates exactly the same height as he- yes,they're tall,but not giants.
Andy said on 25/Dec/16
So if you think Dolph is under 6'3'' then Hasselhoff is 6'2'' just look their recent picture together, Dolph is taller. I saw Dolph at the Equinox in Nyc he was wearing normal trainers he was a full 6'4''
Editor Rob: not sure what photo But this one? Dolph in person is noticeably shorter than Hoff, who has barely shrunk at all...Hoff still near 6ft 4, Dolph a weak 6ft 3 is my best guess.
Ren said on 25/Dec/16
Rob, when your are pulling this height chart. I am not sure how tall he could be. And do this soon
Editor Rob: I do think Dolph has lost 3cm of height, and the average guess here I think is very close to what he will measure.
shredder said on 19/Dec/16
I meant 6'3.5 not 6'5.5
123 said on 18/Dec/16
Dolphs body looks very badly deformed you can definitely tell that he has lost serious height from his present proportions six-three and a half to six-two MAX today
James B said on 15/Dec/16
Arch come on man get things into perspective telling apart 6'4.25 from 6'4.5 is very difficult lol.

A guy like dolph with his build and posture could have been easily pulled of looking taller than he actually was
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/16
@Rob, if he looked 4 cm taller than Weathers in person, wouldn't that make him 189cm?
Editor Rob: yes Arch, he is likely a fraction shy of 6ft 3 now.
Johan said on 12/Dec/16
The guy had no clue how to convert metric to feet/inches. He has never claimed 195+ even, I always read 193-194 cm.

His peak height is a bit tricky as in some films he did have big boots and look 6'5" ( joshua tree for example) but in Showdown in Little Tokyo he was barefoot next to a legit 5'11" guy. He didn't look less than 6'4" there.

His current height was a mystery to me as he can look as low as 6'2" today. However I found another piece of evidence supporting his current listing.

He appeared in Season 5 of Arrow as a russian crimeboss who gets taken hostage by 6'1" listed Stephen Amell.

Now I believe that Stephen is a bit less perhaps even 6'0.5" but Dolph had 2 inches on him.

Rob has met Stephen and gave him 6'1" so that should end the 6'1" today guesses.

His posture isn't the best in that scene and Stephen has more footwear and yet he still looks just as tall as David Ramsay next to him.

6'2.5" maybe but thats minimum for my guess.
jervis said on 11/Dec/16
I think 6ft4 peak is more like his height when younger,could still be 6ft3 now.6ft5.5? I dont think so.
Peter 179cm said on 10/Dec/16
@Shredder No waay he's lost 3.5 inches,that's just absurd.He was 6'4 tops at peak and around 189cm now(when standing tall).197cm may have been a shoe measurement but even that seems unlikely.

Jervis,

I like Dolph A Lot seems like a Humble Fella compared to most American Celebrities who are largely full of Crap.

If I cam wrong, He would have to have had some injuries or Surgeries b/c the Man doesn't even pull off 6'2 Nowadays, and a 3" loss by 60 is Really harsh so Something doesn't Line up.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Dec/16
@Jervis, I wouldn't look too much into the "6'3 peak" claimers. It was obvious he was taller than that, and he'd never have made up 6'3 being the limit for Rocky, you can imagine Stallone fearing a super tall guy initially!! In the end it was obivous that they picked Dolph because he was bigger than 6'3 and they exploited it in the film by making Drago even bigger and more imposing. I believe Dolph got measured at 6'5.5 in shoes in the 80s and went with that. He also claimed 6'5, so possible he masured betwneen both of those, so perhaps Rob's 6'4.25 is spot on. I still think 6'4.5 though, see Showdown in Little Tokyo and he really looked that with the others.

Here's the clip Jervis is talking about
Look at his face at around the 50 second mark,he's clearly blatantly lying about his height. He's 6ft4 flat and nothing more (peak)

Zero chance he's 6ft5.5
jervis said on 7/Dec/16
He claimed 6ft5.5 on the Joan Rivers show,but if he was as low as 6ft3, as some people are claiming here, thats 2.5 inches extra plus an avrage 1 inch for heel height making 6ft6.5?
Jordan87 said on 4/Dec/16
Jervis,

Yes more than likely . Or used his height in shoes.
James B said on 30/Nov/16
He looked massive in rocky
jervis said on 28/Nov/16
So he made up that story?
Jordan87 said on 28/Nov/16
Jervis,

Based on the Picture above with Jay, and How tall DOlph currently looks with 6'0 Carl Weathers ( Recent-Check the site, Carl is 6'0). Dolph is not much over 6'1. That cannot yield a prime 6'4 Man, let alone a 6'5 man without serious health Problems ( Dave Prowse.)

Plus Dolph is only 60. Prowse is 80 so I cant see major height loss. Possibly a inch, maybe 2, but that's a stretch. Average fellow Dolph's age looses 3/4". For him to even loose 1.5" He would need major Injuries and Surgeries and even that would only put him around 6'3 in his prime which is were I have him.

Yes he Towered Sly, who was around 5'8-5'9 on a good day.

My current Estimate for Dolph is 6'1-6'2, with a 6'3ish peak.
Peter 179cm said on 26/Nov/16
@ jervis Even though they made him look 200cm plus next to 174-175 peak Stallone.It's all about camera angles-i just watched Indiana Jones and the last Crusade and Ford looked taller than Connery in the majority of the film sometimes just the same height even though Ford was probably 184 peak and Connery still around 187-188 in 1989.
jervis said on 25/Nov/16
So the story about him being to tall at 6ft5 because they wanted someone of 6ft3 or shorter,when he went for the part in Rocky IV was just a big lie then?
Peter 179cm said on 18/Nov/16
192-193cm peak
188-189cm now,imo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Nov/16
No I think he would in the same zone as The Rock at worst today.
Jordan87 said on 17/Nov/16
@Dave189,

He is around 6'1.5 to 6'2 Nowadays so you are correct. At around 60 years old the Average guy looses around 3/4". Say he is not the average guy, I doubt he lost more than 1.25". He was not over 6'4 in his prime, to me he was Closer to 6'3 when Young, maybe 6'3.5. Not 6'4, and Definitely not 6'5.

He mentioned several times that he was refused consideration at the initial queue line-up for a part in what became ROCKY IV. He said he was asked his height and he mentioned 6'5", but they required someone who was 6'3" or less, so he was refused consideration and used another route for the part in the film.

I see this as firm indication he was actually noticebly more that 6'3" at some time. (Better than any other opinions from photographic material)

6ft3 when measured. Walks around like a 6ft2 guy though

He looks 6'2.5 here with a good posture.
I don't think he loss 2 inches until nowadays.
He maybe is 6'3 so i should go with 190cm.
josh jeffords said on 10/Oct/16
Dolph was listed at 6 6 and over including his Royal Swedish Marine or whatever the call it mandatory military.
He started downgrading to 6 4 like he said due to getting turned down.
If you watch his old pre steroid and bodybuilding movies he was freaking huge towering over everything.
He has undoubtedly shrunk from previous stated hobbies and being over 50 you guys who say 6 2 are jealous and its pathetic.
He also has bad posture so gotta wait to get good angle.
Peter 179cm said on 8/Oct/16
@ Leonardo 1.73m He can pass for 185-186cm next to 172 Jay but it's implied that he's not standing very well so he could be losing about 2-3cm of total height.He may still be near the 190 mark like 188-189 range if he stood tall for a measurement,though.
Jordan87 said on 8/Oct/16
I'd say he looks 5.5 " on big jay . Not positive he is dropping posture but it's surprising to me he doesn't look taller . I'd also think 6'3 for peak is possible. Let's say he is no taller than 6'2 with jay here he really lost more than 2" of height ? I'd say 6'3-6'4 peak I'm doubting 6'5 at this point .
MrTBlack said on 7/Oct/16
@Rocky

He was never 6'6", he claimed 6'4"-6'5" in the 80s and 90s so he can't be more than what he claimed.
KH said on 6/Oct/16
He was only a couple inches taller then Carl Weathers in rocky 4. Stallone is not very tall its easy to dwarf him. Dolph is a tall man but not as gigantic as he appeared to be in Rocky IV. I don't believe he was ever any bigger then about 6'3 barefoot. Personally I don't believe he was ever over 6'4. A definite roid user too although all the guys in the Rocky movies were.

Dolph might be the sort of guy in a club though James to say "I don't like you, you're under 5 ft 8" and shun you because he doesn't like short guys LOL.
Dolph I think would be a friendly guy in general and not that intimidating, but I definitely see how if threatened or in a tricky situation he could be pretty scary if he needed to be. As you say, not a guy you'd want to mess with. I heard that his house got burgled in Malaga and his family held at gunpoint and when the robbers found out it was Dolph's family they fled on the spot.


Ever had short guys dislike you because your tall?

He seemed very tall in Rocky IV (like terminator lol) - 6'5 for sure. In Red Scorpion it was hard to say, he towered over every character but next to Al White who is said to be 6'2, he seemed a little bit shorter.

I think he was at least 6'4 in his peak (more to 6'5 imo), and now 6'3. He still seems pretty tall and everything depends on the angle and posture so it's hard to say what is right.
James B said on 28/Sep/16
In his prime with his height of 6'4.25 and strong looks (no homo) I don't think any women would turn him down on a night out would they? Although some women might see him as a meathead. He was like the textbook example of an alpha male in my option and like I said before I would not want to get on his bad side.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/16
I think Dolph's height loss has to be injury-related. He is a very fit guy. Without those he'd still be 6ft4 today.
123 said on 23/Sep/16
Rob the guy obviously has lost more than just a mere inch look at him with Conan obrien just look at him in the above picture, if dolph really is 6'3" today he's the shortest 6'3" i've ever seen why don't you bring him down to 6'2" at least? he obviously isn't taller than that today

peak 6'3 1/2"-6'4"

today 6'1.5"-6'2"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/16
Either way, that's a brutal amount of loss for 58. Hasselhoff whose 5 years older than Dolph has held up well. He still looks around 6ft4 today.
I think Lundgren in the 80's could look a legit 194cm guy.
Editor Rob: Hoff's body help up very well to late 50's, not losing much...Dolph, arguably a very fit guy through his career ships at least an inch by the same age.
Johan said on 20/Sep/16
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/16


The real question is whether or not he really cleared 6ft4 at peak?

He would have been taller than a peak Hasselhoff I have no doubts at all. It has to be said however he can look 6'2" range today.

I guessed 6'2.5" from several pics online but since he is listed 6'3" maybe 6'2.75" - 190 cm would be a start, just like The Rock .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/16
Rob, I think a weak 6ft3 is a safer bet than a strong 6ft2. Dmeyer has a point in that he can still edge out Crews (strong 6ft2 guy himself).


The real question is whether or not he really cleared 6ft4 at peak?
Arch Stanton said on 18/Sep/16
@Danimal, watch Showdown in Little Tokyo, 5 inches on 5'11 and change Brandon Lee and easily 6 inches in boots on 5'11 Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa barefoot. Also Dolph claimed 6'5.5 himself in the 80s, which I believe is a genuine shoe measurement. 6'4.5 is more arguable than 6'4 flat peak, but 6'4.25 is reasonable compromise. I'm also not seeing 6'2 flat or less today either. When he stands his best he looks around 6'3. Possible his lowest is now 6'2.5 or something though.
Shredder said on 17/Sep/16
Danimal 6'2 now , 6'4 peak.

This guy will have some serious problems with height loss in the future as he gets older. To go from 6'4.25 to 6'2.5 by age 58 is a lot since even clint Eastwood didn't lose that much in his late 50s.

dolph lundgren was 6'3 1/2 in his prime however he has lost ALOT of height due to his genetics and or steroid use and or weightlifting and or stunts nowadays he is 6'1" Just look at him in the picture above for petes sake! Big Jay is technically five-seven yet there still isn't a big difference in height there! also compare him to Conan O'Brien who is 6'3"

Look up Dave Munns on Instagram ( dmunns88 ) . He is a 5'9.5 guy it seems as he has pics with loads of celebs with who Rob has met. He looks a good inch taller than Jeremy Renner , he is just edged by Jason David Frank.

He is 4 in shorter than Adam Copeland give or take and I could go on. Safe to say he is not under 5'9.5".

Now look at his pic with Lundgren. There is 5 inches between them so old Dolph is not under 6'2.5".

Johan,

Those pictures are deceiving , Dolph is in front of Brandon. Better to find them standing next to each other with the ground visible and both actually standing next to each other.

He isnt over 6'1.5 today guys. He must have have broken his body down to shrink 2.5" if he was 6'4.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Aug/16
Yes, a solid 6'4 peak I think is obvious, could observations Johan.

James B said on 10/Jul/16
So rob you think even by early 90s he could have lost a small fraction?
Editor Rob: he did a lot of hard movies with physical demands...so maybe by mid 90's it might start to show...around Universal Solider in early 90's I still think he could look about 6ft 4.

Watch Joshua Tree (1993), anybody who thinks he looks under 6'4 needs to see an optician! 6'4.5 peak, 190cm today.

He is 6'1.5 now. Also he is pictured recently with Carl weathers who is 6 foot on the dot ( check his picture with rob ). Lundgren is not over 6'1.5 today.

With big jay he barely hits 6'1.25 folks. This was not a 6'4 man , maybe 6'3ish which I know some people think is too short for one of their heroes but come on now people.

So Antman,how do you view the picture above(with Jay)? Jay is a proven 172 guy and as you can see Dolph looks around 184-185cm so nearly 6'1,right?Not to mention his apparent loose posture,so he would probably appear taller if stood like he was being measured.5'11 is clearly a joke even with bad posture .Dolph is likely 6'1-6'2 range flat nowadays,most probably a solid 187cm.I think most would agree on this by now...Afterall he only looks 2-3cm taller than 184-185 Weathers these days.
