How tall is Dolph Lundgren ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Dolph Lundgren's height is 6ft 3.5in (192 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 4.25in (194 cm)
Swedish Actor, best known for movies like Rocky 4, Red Scorpion, Dark Angel and Expendables. In impact magazine he revealed that height caused him a problem initially in his career in film: "I 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 80's he also stated "I'm about 195cm" and "6ft5 and a half" although more recently on on tv4 website, it said: "Du �r 198 cm l�ng." - "Nej, 193 tror jag att det ska vara", which basically asked him if he's 198, to which Dolph replied saying no, 193cm.

James, he really looked huge in the 80s. As tall as Stephen Fry, yes. Now he's about 6'3", can look 6'2" range with poor posture.

You seen him in showdown in little Tokyo? No one would question him looking 6'5 as well as 6'4 in that film.

Compare how much shorter Dolph looks next to ross than 6'4.5 Stephen fry.

Funny to think in the 80s dolph was around the same height as Fry. In th clips above I'd say Dolph looks no taller than a flat 6'3.


Would you agree rob quite a difference in how much larger fry looks next to johnathan compared to dolph?
[Editor Rob: what time in the video are they together]
TJE says on 21/Jul/14
@Dmeyer Yea I was gonna say. Dolph struggles to look 6'3 sometimes, today that is. He doesn't have 7 inches on Sly today. In fact, in the picture on JCVD's page, JCVD and Jason Statham surpass Dolph's eye level.
Dmeyer says on 10/Jul/14
Rob he looks 0.5in under hassehof who had 0.5in lss shoes 6'3 no more possibly 6'2.75 , is 190cm possible 193cm peak 190cm now 3cm loss at 50s is alot
[Editor Rob: he could also be a guy who doesn't stand as tall, but get him measured and you might find a different story.]
Dmeyer says on 10/Jul/14
When in equal posture he look just 1cm taller than 189cm crews 6'3 flat is possible
Payton says on 7/Jul/14
Here is picture of Lundgren with UFC legend Chuck Lidell who is legit 6'2. Dolph easily edges him and can easily be 6'4 if not weak 6'5. Anyone who aims that dolph is under 6'4 isn't real. - https://www.facebook.com/ChuckLiddell/photos/pb.121997521469.-2207520000.1404728266./10152124590281470/?type=3&theater
Realist says on 6/Jul/14
Rob 6'2 today with decent footwear usually he has lost 2.25 inches already i think his case is gonna be similar to Clint Eastwood so by 80 he will be a solid 6'0 footer.
Parker says on 1/Jul/14
There are plenty of pictures on the net of Sly with 6'4 Dolph Lungren. A 5'7 Stallone would be a full head shorter, so its easy to see how ludicrous that estimate is.

He can't be shorter than 5'8. He's not taller than 5'10.
Emmett says on 20/Jun/14
I don't think he ever tried to exaggerate his height (not that he would need to at 6'4-5), he was just unsure about conversions from centimeters to feet and inches. In the above examples of him claiming height, the centimeter claims are both closer to what Rob has him at.
AlexMahone says on 14/Jun/14
This is one of the most laughable downgrade ever in this board. Really....most people saw a bad picture (Dolph had really bad posture) with Hasselhoff and downgrades Lundgreen to 6.2 (188). So then he is the biggest 188cm man what I've ever seen...so Hasselhoff is NOW 6.4 (193cm). He doesn't loss height, he's definetely NOT 6.3...In the most talked picture with Dolph he straights up, he stands almost on his tiptoes while Lundgreen flexes his leg much more...so what I want to say that he doesn't stand straight...Hasel-hoff isn't taller. Not by this picture. This is the FACT.
kyuss says on 8/Jun/14
6-4" peak,6-2" approx today
James B says on 7/Jun/14
Rob maybe upgrade his peak to 6'4.5?
Henrik says on 16/May/14
240 pounds at 6'5" could be achieved completely drug-free anyway.
Henrik says on 16/May/14
6'5" and 240 lbs in the morning at his peak. He claims to have stopped taking steroids in 1987 after doing He-Man, but I didn't notice him being particularly smaller in Showdown in Little Tokyo or the early 90's in general. Maybe I am just bad at telling weights... I rest my case.
Arch Stanton says on 11/May/14
Yeah I agree, I think 6'4.5" (194cm) is accurate.
James B says on 10/May/14
No chance he was 'almost' 6'4 peak. In his prime would never drop under 193cm even in the dead of night. 6'4 and 6'5 looked believable for him in his early films.

In the 80s and early 90s gave a bigger impression in his movies than 6'4 guys like Steven seagal, and Jeff goldblum,.
Peyman says on 28/Apr/14
peak: almost 6ft 4in
now: 6ft 2.5in
KROC says on 23/Apr/14
I think 194cm would be his peak height. Looks about 6'3 nowadays.
James B says on 17/Apr/14
I said this before but in showdown in little Tokyo dolph looked around 6'5.
Henrik says on 11/Apr/14
Heylo:

Yeah, I don't quite understand where this stereotype about Swedish people having long legs came from (supposedly, it exists). I have met many 6'4" and 6'5" guys who were taller than me due to a larger torso and not the legs, being 6'2" with a 34" inseam myself.

One thing I disagree on however is that long-legged people tend to look shorter on screen than vice versa, which you wrote. Clint Eastwood (quite leggy) usually struck me as a 6'1" man, unless he was standing next to someone. Same thing with Jimmy Stewart. Dolph and John Wayne always appeared bigger imho.

this is 6'1" Randy Couture beside Dolph Lundgren... He looks significantly taller than 6'3.5" in comparison.
filmfan says on 31/Mar/14
Dolph says 6'5'' and a half because he is Swedish not American or English. He is probably just converting cms into feet/inches not trying to show off.
Actually Met Him says on 15/Mar/14
He's one of the few celebs that downplays his height. I met him in the early 1990's. I am 6' 3.5" without shoes and he toward over me. I see him easily at 6'5" without shoes. However, he's a broad guy, big shoulders, and large face.
Heylo says on 15/Mar/14
I Think he was about 6'4, more or less in his peak. But i also think that he can look shorter than he really are in candid pictures because he don't have very long legs for his height. I Think it's usual with swedish people, that their torso is pretty long but not necessarily in disproportion to the legs. Correct me if i'm wrong but i've got that impression of swedish people (yeah, i live in Sweden)

I met him at an Army base 4.5 years ago. I'm about 6'6" early in the day and I had him by about 2 inches.
176,2Tunman says on 7/Feb/14
In some scnes of Rocky he could look a really massive guy but that's normal since Sly is only 5'9.In some pics I would say there was only 7-7.25 between them.6'4-4.25 for a peak and 6'3.25-3.5 today is realistic.Losing about 0.75 at 56 is already too much but still possible in his case.At 6'5 the loss would be close to 2in which is impossible.
Viking says on 5/Feb/14
1.25*
Viking says on 3/Feb/14
1.5" loss
MrTBlack says on 2/Feb/14
6'5.5-6'6" sounds a bit high but I don't think he was under 6'4" at peak.

I know many people who think an inch is 2,5cm, maybe he converted it wrong like Rob said ;)

190 today with bad posture
193 peak

top of head 168 cm burt young dolph hit the shoulder 194 cm peak seems more correct for dolph

No one would batter an eyelid if he claimed 6'5 at his peak
Viking says on 9/Jan/14
Rob, how about the 191,5 cm I found in september -11?
[Editor Rob: at this rate he's going to have claimed every mark from 191-197 :)]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Jan/14
I'm aware of that but, Rob shouldn't that quote be added to the top?
[Editor Rob: I'll mention it beside the 80's line, but I'd go with his metric statements as who knows if he could convert right ;)]

in the movie rocky he looked gigantic for real*! i thought he was like 6'8 or something lol he is swedish btw like me :)
Lorne says on 20/Dec/13
He's struggling to look 191 now, he'll be at 6'3 flat soon. Man, he has made the strangest height claims!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/Dec/13
Rob, did you see Cobra's link where Dolph claims 6ft5.5?

Because he was telling the truth, his measured height in shoes.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Dec/13
Peter Ronson, the Icelandic athlete who was in Journey to the Center of the earth with James Mason really looks a spit for Dolph Lundgren at least in body frame/jaw/hair. They have exactly the same sort of build and structure and hair. He looked like some Nordic superman. I was guessing him at 6'4-6'5" and I see he was listed at 6'4". Well proportionally he looked identical to Dolph to me and he was listed at 6'4" rather than 6'5...
my name is philippe ( 1 m 89 cm ) says on 15/Dec/13
i took picture with dolph in 1997 in downtown montreal in the store named watch..i am 1 m 89 cm.im taller than him just 1 cm..he is 1m 88 cm.i still have that picture.
Max says on 1/Dec/13
I'm surprised he would claim the half inch. I was measured at my annual physical around 7 p.m. after a days work, at 6'5.5" barefoot. I just say 6'5" when asked my height. The half is usually for little guys claiming everything they can.
The Exorcist says on 20/Nov/13
@Cobra: At that particular interview he was much taller than the other guests and he had a big hairdo; he probably thought he could pull off a 6'5.5" impression. lol

A SOLID 6'5 ft in his peak.
pataan19 says on 30/Oct/13
Hey Rob what do you think of the pic with him, statham and van damme? Tbh if they are both 5'9 range, Dolph can't be more than 6'2.5!
Arch Stanton says on 23/Oct/13
Judging by the photo in Command Performance he seemed to be between 6'3.5" and 6'4" obviously in shoes on the chart.He looked slightly shorter in comparison to Dave Legeno who was 6'4" on the chart, I think it's possible he might measure slightly under 6'3" or 190cm currently at some point in the day, but I wouldn't bet on him being as low as 6'2". I think he easily generally looks 6'3 range.
Robert says on 3/Oct/13
Yeah 193-195 peak
Arch Stanton says on 1/Oct/13
I can believe it. Take a legit 6'4-6'4.5" man who got measured during a check up in his shoes at 6'5-6'5.5". Measured at 6'5.5" he either rounds up to 6'6 or says 6'5.5", or measured at 6'5" in shoes he claims 6'5". It's what most actors in the US say, they state their shoe height or round up a little. That's why most appear to inflate their heights by 1.5 inches when the reality is most of them are telling the truth. Non height fanatics rarely care about their precise barefoot measurement and go by the reading in which they were measured and don't think about shoes. I believe Dolph was 6'4.5" peak barefoot.
RisingForce says on 15/Sep/13
I'm sold on 6'4" peak and 6'3" current, no need for the fractions, imo. Can't believe Dolph claimed 6'6" and use to regularly claim 6'5.5" in the mid 80's.
Arch Stanton says on 13/Sep/13
In Command and Performance from 2009 he's pictured on a height chart and he definitely above 6'3" on it, I'd say 6'3.75" knocking off his hair. But he was probably in sneakers.
Robert says on 11/Sep/13
Dolph 6 2.5 and Hoff 6 3.75-6 4
Jordan says on 11/Sep/13
Micko Understandable. Its harder to peg Lundgrens peak height when in youth, nowadays based on pics with Hasselhoff he seems to be 6'-2 to 6'2.5ish. A prime height maybe he was 6'3.5ish, who knows about that. Its easier to compare him to Hasselhoff bc he is pictured with 5'8 Proven Rob.
Micko says on 10/Sep/13
I suppose at the end of the day, none of us would really know exactly how tall any of these people really are without measuring them with a tape measure. It's all guess work.
Jordan says on 8/Sep/13
Micko, I am going with what is "Proven" and that is that Hasselhoff here on this site with Rob looks 6'3, not 6'4. And in the pics I posted Dolph is clearly 1" shorter than Hoff. Dolph isn't under 6'2, but I wouldn't say he is over 6'2.5. Maybe in his youth, but now he is a solid 6'2.

That "6'5" guy you have Dolp with in your pic, proof that he is 6'5. I am going with Hoff being 6'3 bc thats what he looks like with Rob. And Dolph is shorter than Hoff. FACT.
Lillo thomas says on 8/Sep/13
Micko how do you know this guy is legit 6-5? Maybe 6-3.5 without shoes and he is claiming his height with shoes about 6-5 ? Dolph is 6-2.5 max today . Dolph was at least 6-3.5 in his prime .
Micko says on 7/Sep/13
The people on here saying that Lundgren is under 6'2" must have down syndrome or something. Have a look at the photo here Click Here the guy he is standing with is 6'5". If Dolph is anything under 6'4" then i must not be able to see properly. Ridiculous comments from ridiculous people.

Viper, I agree. See in my previous post mentioning that Hasselhoff is about 6'3 with Rob on this site now, and was CLEARLY 1" taller than Dolph in their Pictures .Dolph is a solid 6'2, but no way 6'3. If I had to list Dolph it would be 6'2 Flat.
Jordan says on 6/Sep/13

Dolph is 6'2 nowadays. Hasselhoff is pictued with Rob now on this site and is not taller than 6'3 Himself. In the pic he has an Easy inch on Lundgren.

Dolph was never over 6'4, Perhaps only 6'3 in his prime. He is clearly an inch shorter than proven 6'3 Hasselhoff.
Yaspaa says on 4/Sep/13
He was on Top Gear US and looked very tall.
Rusty says on 27/Aug/13
He looked easily a head taller than Stallone in Rocky 4. This could have happened because Dolph may really have been near 6'5" in his peak and Stallone could be the 5'7" others have guessed him at. However, the cameramen may have done something to create that illusion since his character was supposed to be 6'8".
Viper says on 26/Aug/13
Above 6'2 for Dolph today is a pipe dream. I showed that Terry Crews is shorter than 6'1.25 measured David Garrard and Dolph just has an inch on Crews. Even 6'1.5 isnt out of the question.

He also looked 6'2 max with 6'3.5 Conan Obrien.
Rusty says on 14/Aug/13
He easily looked a legit 6'5" in Rocky 4 or 195cm. I do think he may be a little under 6'4" today though after all the stunts and such he has done.
BDD says on 14/Aug/13
One. I can't believe there's a site on the height of celebs. LOL!! But yeah Dolph looked like a giant in R4. As if easily over 6'5. Of course they used certain camera angles and tricks to exaggerate. Seen him standing on the ground next to other male actors who were clearly under 6'. Or were known to be under 6'. And Dolph didn't look noticeably taller. He just happens to have a large frame and good bone structure (face). He has "the look" for male leads in action films.

How did he lose so much height. Looks 6'2 Max today.

Rob's aestimate is correct according to me. Next to Jonathan Ross looks what a 193cm guy looks next to a 187cm one. The difference is noticeable and definitely not only 3cm as some people pretend. He looks 1 inch shorter that his peak height because o his bad posture.
Larc 74in says on 29/Jul/13
Certainly looks a lot under 6'3 today, I'll give him a 6'4.5 peak however.
Original says on 11/Jul/13
In 80's he's looks always 6'5.
Today 6'3, not shorter.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 9/Jul/13
194.5cm peak
Dom says on 29/Jun/13
I agree it seems they gave Dolph extra height in Rocky to make him look much bigger than 6'5. In some photos now he doesn't look anywhere as big as he was. Looks 6'3 max next to Arnold these days.
Brandon says on 17/Jun/13
6'5 peak
6'4 now
Henrik says on 7/Jun/13
He was standing on a box when shooting some scenes in Rocky IV...
Dionysos says on 27/May/13
Well, in Rocky IV he looked easily 6'7"-6'8" as Ivan Drago but in the other movies I would give him a legit 6'5".
Arch Stanton says on 24/May/13
Watching Blackjack and he can look 6 ft 5 a lot..

The "Dolph is 6'2" max" claims are just bunk.

Danimal says on 21/Mar/13
Rob, how on early do you still have Lundgren at 6'3.5"?????? He even claimed he was 6'3" himself recently and surely does not even look to be that height (more like close to 6'3" in shoes today. Looks like he's lost 2.5" since his prime.

He said he was measured at 191.5 to my knowledge which is 3 mm shy of 6'3.5" and nearer 6'3.5" than 6'3.25. Add to the fact he is clearly taller than Terry Crews. As for "he was never over 193 peak". Rob has met Cary Tagawa and has him at 5'11", well there is a scene in Showdown in Little Tokyo in which Cary is barefoot and Dolph in boots and I think 6'4.5" would have been roughly what he was, and he had 5 inches on Brandon Lee.
chi-town says on 16/Apr/13
what it really should say is I told the height I'd like to be is 6'5, then when they said they were looking for someone shorter at 6'3, I told Them my real height is 6'3.

And why he still looks an inch taller than 6'2.5" Terry Crews if he has shrunk that much?
francesco says on 19/Mar/13
for me is 6 '2.75 "(190 cm) in the morning and 6' 1.75" (187.5 cm) in the evening
its peak I think 6 '4.5 "(194.5 cm) in the morning.
It seems to have lost a lot of height, even though he's only 55 years
John says on 4/Mar/13
He has shrunk quite a bit, peak height should be around 195 cm though
James says on 15/Feb/13
Well there has been debate over 186cm for Johnathan ross as well.

Lennox lewis appeared not over 194cm on the Johnathan show in 2005 also.
Robban says on 14/Feb/13
I think he looked 190 cm next to Jonathan ross (187 cm)
Silent d says on 13/Feb/13
Next to Jonathon ross he looked 6 foot 2 and a bit. Maybe he's not as tall as i thought he was. 190cm. I remember he was huge in the eighties and early nineties. He is not thin, he is quite built. He is huge because of his size and stature.
Henrik says on 9/Feb/13
Trent says on 2/Feb/13
He is getting into massive territory there actually. He has rarely been that big though.

He has admitted to being on roids around that time. Supposed to have stopped taking them in 1987 (meaning right after he finished He-Man).

You guy need to learn how to use the proper terminology. "Massive" does not refer to one's height, "massive" refers to build. Dirk Nowitzki is 7'0 tall but he is not "massive" by any means.

Few would disagree that he looked massive as He-Man.
Arch Stanton says on 29/Jan/13
I'd even go as far to say that in the 80s Dolph was like the archetype massive muscular guy in Hollywood. He looked huge in the 80s!
Arch Stanton says on 29/Jan/13
I agree Trent that Lundgren is not as built as most people think, he has a more slim, athletic build than the typical beefcake but he sure as hell had everybody fooled in the 80s. He looked without a shadow of a doubt massive in films like Rocky IV and He-Man at 240-250 pounds and could look 6 ft 6.
Nitro_90 says on 26/Jan/13
@James In Croatia,where I live, average height for male is 6'1'', so I wouldn't call 6'2.5 damn tall :D

He probably did get measured in his prime at around 6"5
Trent says on 13/Jan/13
On this discussion of Dundgren's build, I wouldn't say he was ever "massive". He was and is pretty muscular with long clavicles, but has never been particularly a thick guy. Comments of being "massive" seem to be more dependent on build than height.
James says on 12/Jan/13
6'2.5 here in the UK is damn tall given that 6'3 is the start of very tall.

6'4-6'5 in my opinion is the start of massive,
Henrik says on 12/Jan/13
I'd say massive starts at 6'4" or 6'5". At rougly 6'2.5", I've never felt massive or had remarks about being tall and should be playing basketball. But then again, I am from Sweden.

Yaspaa says on 4/Jan/13
@Henrik, Dolph is standing way behind Van Damme, if they were flush...

-----

I don't think it's only about the comparison between the two. They also don't look much longer when looking at them individually. But it should be noted that I believe Van Damme is considered leggy for his height.
Arch Stanton says on 11/Jan/13
Yaspaa says on 4/Jan/13
If 6'2 is massive, how come 6'2.5 is considered normal? His height was exaggerated then just like every other musclebound 80's hero, he didn't stand on a box in Rocky 4 either.

Yes he did, I heard him say it in an interview. In the scene just before they fight in the "I must break you" he was on a box.

Anything more than 6'2" is considered massive. Normal Tall IMO is 5'11.75-6'2.5"

6 ft 9 James.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 13/Dec/12
What the hell happened to this guy? He doesn't look as tall as he was supposed to be, I remember some of his old movies and he looked huge, over 6'4 for sure.

He looks always under 6'3 now, already more than 1inch of loss at only 55y.
And then you have guys like Morgan Freeman (who is 75y) and lost barely anything.
James says on 9/Dec/12
That guy must be over 7ft
Arch Stanton says on 8/Dec/12
No, very tall and rangy I'd describe him as. Dolph Lundgren I don't think anybody can deny looked a huge guy back in the 80s and 90s at least but I think most people's impression of him is bigger than he actually was. They played upon his stature in his films. I mean he even stood on a box in Rocky IV.

Now this guy Ted Cassidy is massive but he had acromegaly problems. In that photo he defines "imposing", looks like Dolph Lundgren's bigger brother in that photo LOL.

Shaun would you describe a peak Clint Eastwood as massive?
Arch Stanton says on 7/Dec/12
James says on 30/Nov/12
6'4 is very tall but its not massive like 6'7

Depends, a strong 6'5" guy heavily built, rather like Challenger 15, nobody could deny that the guy is massive. I think a legit 6'5" + if heavily built can qualify as massive.
Trent says on 2/Dec/12
Does anyone remember the video of him with Conan from 2009 with the birthday cake surprise joke? Dolph actually commented that Conan was tall and looked around 3cm under him. I can't find it for the life of me. I can find links to it, but the vid doesn't show up anymore since Conan left the Tonight Show.

192 are u kiddin' me?! I know the angle isnt the best but trust me, Dolph isnt over 190 cm today. When he was younger, most of his height came from his long torso, so 3+ cm isnt out of the question. I would say 189-90 today, 193 peak.

That's not true at all. Dolph himself has said "I was all legs" before he started bodybuilding.
The Exorcist says on 29/Nov/12
I think that 6'3" range is about right. I watched "The Expendables 2" today and he looks the same height as Liam Hemsworth.

Thin shoes? Did you even look at the shoes he wore next to hasselhoff hahaha
James says on 23/Nov/12
Dolph is not the kind of guy that cares about his height

Probably why he wears thin shoes that make him look 6'2-6'3 next too hasslehoff and Conan.

He looks 6'3.5 with the 6'1 man. The big guy too the left looks way bigger than 6'5 if Dolph is still 192cm.... If you ask me he looks 6'8.


Its probably just the camera angle distorting there heights but is. Lol f the guy on the left is 6'5 then that would make Dolph 6'1 and the other guy 5'10.75 LOL.

the intervjuer is 190. he sad that one time when he was asked on the program. if you look at 1 min, you can see that he and dolpg are pretty mutch the same height. dolph looks a litte shorter maybe, but he has bad posture.Click Here

Hasselhoff probably 6'3.75 plus 0.5-0.6 in 6'4.3 shoes dolph sneaker give 1-1.25 so 6'2.75-6'3 for dolph
James says on 12/Nov/12
Geez these big Swedish guys can pull of looking massive at only 6'4.

Men who are or were near 193cm like Clint eastwood' conan o'brien and tom selleck make 6'4 look nothing spectacular.



Of course some people will argue that Dolph was 6'5 peak but I don't thinks that's possible given that he only stands at 6'3 today.
James says on 12/Nov/12
Maybe Dolph is 6'3.25 like Levi?
Robban says on 12/Nov/12
He actually had an inch advantage, how much do you think a lacoste shoe give anyway? Zack looked taller compared to Conan then what Dolph did, and Dolph wore dress shoes aswell.
Arch Stanton says on 11/Nov/12
Doubt he had an inch footwear advantage. Accounting for footwear I saw a 3-4cm difference. Hoff's flat 6'4" is also questionable, he made Gordon Ramsay look 6'0.5" which of course is possible and he was measured 6'1.5" in sneakers. I agree that he looked 189cm next to Conan, but so did Zach Levi recently even accounting for footwear.
James says on 7/Nov/12
He also looked 189cm next too 6'4 Conan o'brien
Robban says on 7/Nov/12
And he wasnt the same height as Hoff, even with those shoes on. He was like 2 cm shorter, and had an inch shoe advantage.
Robban says on 7/Nov/12
Arch, Ive seen your comment about "Dolph recently claimed 191.5 in the gym". In an interview (AdamLive) a woman asked him how tall he is while he responded "Im 193, or now MAYBE shrunken a bit to 191.5" He didnt say it that seriously. It was just something he said cause hes aware about his heightloss.
Arch Stanton says on 7/Nov/12
If a 1989 Dolph had appeared in the first series of Baywatch I believe he'd have edged out the Hoff,,,
Arch Stanton says on 7/Nov/12
I think the Hoff is a comfortable 6'4" and that at times his hair can make him look a bit taller yes. 191.5 as he claimed recently looks legit. If he was going to lie he'd say 195cm still wouldn't he! He looks a bit fitter of late, and you can see he's got his new girlfriend Jenny into fitness, look at her collarbone and shoulders in those pics! But to have already shrunk this much since peak is not good, overdid the weights when he was younger I think.
James says on 5/Nov/12
So you think the hoffs hair makes him look 194cm Arch?
Arch Stanton says on 5/Nov/12
Don't let the Hoff's hair fool you!
Arch Stanton says on 5/Nov/12
James says on 4/Nov/12
If anything Dolph looks 189cm given that David is most likely 192cm these days.

Am I the only one who thinks the height difference is not over an inch? Hasselhoff is still 6'4" at least, looked it next to Gordon Ramsay and many others of late. Dolph said he was measured barefoot in the gym at 191.5" and that's about the height difference I see, not quite an inch. They're almost the same height.
Silent d says on 4/Nov/12
I saw a photo of dolph with statham van damme and he only looked 6 foot 2 which is weird. Is it possible he is under 6 foot 3 rob? I'm sticking with 192cm. Arch stanton now i know. Very sad bruce lee and his son had to pass away in tragic circumstances.
James says on 4/Nov/12

Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 4/Nov/12
That's shocking...he looks barely 6'3, maybe 6'2.75 (considering footwear difference) next to 6'4 Hasselhoff.
That's funny...because he's 5 years younger than him and has already lost 1.5, while Hasselhoff is still at his peak of 6'4.

At peak I'm 100% sure he would've been an hair taller than Hasselhoff.

I am shocked that brandon lee was nearly 6 foot. Dolph made him look tiny. I guess his mother was tall. I am pretty sure the legend bruce lee was about 165cm. Dolph is 192cm. I just believe his peak height might be 196cm.

Bruce Lee was 5'7". If you actually see some of his old Hong Kong movies he was actually on the taller side for an Asian of the times, quite a few actors were shorter than him. Brandon looked 5'11" next to Tia Carrere, ages ago I posted a video of Dolph and Brandon walking through a door and Dolph looked virtually the same height as the door and near 6'6" in boots.

He isnt 2-3 inches taller than her. She is a little under 5 10 she has said and yeh 6 1 in those heels. She looks to be 4, maybe 5 cm shorter, but Dolph is not barefoot, his dress shoes gives easily 1 inch...

Shaun the only reason why you can't see him at 6 2 is because youre 6 1.5 tall

Robban, no offence but Guthrie is in MASSIVE heels and would easily be 6 ft 1 in them. Dolph still looks 2-3 inches taller. 6'3"-6'4" is very clearly the range he is. A VERY solid 6 ft 3.

i just watched new Universal Soldier movie (2012) where is Dolp with Andrei Arlovski, whos 193cm, and Dolph was clearly taller... about 2-3 cm at least... so i guess Dolph is still at his 195cm.

I always thought this guy was close to 2m. Even in expendables he looks like a solid 6 foot 4. 6 foot 2 and 6 foot 3 claims are ridiculous for someone of his size. He is just huge. I remember he was in this movie with the late and great brandon lee and he towered him. Brandon lee looks 5 foot 9 to me but dolph made him look like a little kid. Dolph looked 6 foot 5-6 in that movie.

Brandon Lee was 5'11.5" and Dolph had 5 inches on him in Showdown in Little Tokyo. Yes he looked a legit 195cm in that film as he did in most of his 80s and 90s films.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm says on 22/Oct/12

Its called a box. You know the side view where he smashes gloves and says I must break you and looks like 6 ft 9. There is a reason for that, he was stood on a box.

@Cansen79
No, he has never been over 195 cm, he was atleast an inch shorter then Ralph Moeller

Granted in the Universal Soldier photos Moeller looks 1.5-2 inches taller but there is a video of Dolph and Moeller more recent training in the gym and Moeller barelly looks taller than Dolph, about an inch.
RisingForce says on 11/Oct/12
Greg, read the quote I posted from Dolph, he said he stood on a box for some scenes to make the difference between him and Sly seem bigger. He was never 6'6", he hasn't lost more than 2 inches at just 54 years old. I'm actually quite surprised he'd claim it. As a 6'4" guy when he was younger, there was no reason for him to lie about his height. Maybe it's a case of claiming his height in shoes as Rob has said for other celebrities. He also claimed 6'5 1/2" back in the 80's. Maybe that was his height in shoes and he just rounded up for the 6'6" claim?

Danimal says on 26/Sep/12

With shoes, he was indeed 6'5.5" at his peak. Without, he was 6'4".

-When you're asked about your height, you don't say it with shoes. you say it without shoes. Also you just have to watch the beginning of the video, that is not 6 4. He's really big, very very close to 2metres.
RisingForce says on 6/Oct/12
Hey Rob, don't know if you saw this claim, but I thought it'd might be one you'd want to add to the top of his page.

"I'm 6-foot-6," he says. And Stallone? "He's 5-foot-10. I don't know exactly, but around there." Not quite 5-foot-10? "That's what you say. I didn't say it, did I? Whatever it is, there's still a big difference. But still, to make the difference seem even greater, he had me stand on a box sometimes. There's one shot at the end where we touch gloves, and I say a line to him. I'm on a box for that shot." - 1/3/86 Ocala Star-Banner

Rob, my father in law said he was 6'2.5. I thought he was like 6'4, he feels taller. He met Dolph in Marbella in the late 90's and talked to him at the gym (in Swedish ofcourse). I asked if Dolph was taller and he said oh yeh, easily 195 cm.

RisingForce says on 25/Aug/12
I completely agree with 6'4" peak and 6'3" today, Danimal.

Yeah, that seems reasonable to me too Rising.

Strange that he once claimed to be 6'6", though. Just goes to show that any man no matter how tall may inflate their height, but you wouldn't expect a man Dolph's height to claim 2 inches above his actual height, which is about the max you see from most celebrities. I would have given Dolph 195 cm like he also once claimed, but considering the 6'4" listings for his character in Rocky 4 and how "short" he looks the last few years in just his early 50's, it's easier to believe Dolph was never taller than 6'4" than shrinking almost 2 inches.
