If anything I would argue that Arnold was a bit taller than Bridges in Stay Hungry. He was barefoot in that scene and they still looked about eye-to-eye.
Both of them were probably about the same height peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/16
He looked 6ft2 in Against All Odds beside James Woods (no less than 5ft11 peak).
Goose said on 23/Dec/15
Again, saw him up close Four Years Ago when his band was playing in the area - Saratoga CA Winery. He's tall. Didn't see his shoes but looked in the 6'1 range easily. Had 'the dude' plain white t-shirt on to boot... I guarantee you whatever my judgement he's nothing under 6'. I'm a weak 5'10 and he's tall and 'broader' than one would think. Saw him outside his hotel and seemed pretty unassuming... Was wife his much shorter but attractive wife...

The Dude's a strong six foot and half an inch these days. His six one and a half peak height really tied the room together.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/15
@Ian C: He was easily 2in below those guys. But they were both 6ft4 so you can definitely argue 6ft2 for him there.
Ian C said on 24/Jul/15
Bridges seems roughly the same size as Clint Eastwood and George Kennedy in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. So a tall guy.

I am always a little surprised at how posters on this site will argue over fractions of an inch. I just want to know, tall, medium or short, and/or lying about it? My favorite look-ups are actors who are about five-foot eight who are claiming to be tall. So I'm a big fan of the Tom Cruise and Kirk Douglas and Johnny Depp pages.
avillax said on 11/Jul/15
Check this clip, pause at 0:54, Bridges looks 1/2" taller than Arnold but he's wearing shoes and has a bit more hair volume so I would say they're even, I say they're both 6'2. Arnold was not shorter than 6' 1.5" peak height, no way.
Sam said on 17/Jun/15
The photo evidence is fairly convincing that he and Schwarzenegger were dead-even height in Stay Hungry.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/15
Rob, you need to add The Last Picture Show to that list.
Judd said on 1/Jun/15
peak 6'1" (max 6'1.25") and today 6'0-0.25".
JJF said on 28/May/15
Peak 186cm. As seen next to Arnie (peak 184cm) in the 70's.
Case closed.
Jason said on 26/May/15
He looked about the same height (maybe slightly shorter) than tough-guy B-movie actor William Smith i Last American Hero -- and Smith gets listed as being 6'2"; but I don't think Smith was really 6'2" -- more like 6'1".......Smith looked a little shorter than other 6'2" actors.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/15
Peak: 6ft1½-2
Today: 6ft0½-1
Dejavu said on 10/May/15
He has bad postures and looks 6'0 with a slouch. I think he could still measure 184cm to 185cm if measured.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/15
184-185cm today I reckon. Can still pull off looking 6ft1.
Alex said on 17/Mar/15
I'm sorry the right link is this one

The one i posted yesterday is about arnold's car
I meant thath bridges, with trainer shoes on (about 2 cm. advantage) is slightly taller than arnold, so I think 187 barefoot is good for bridges
Alex said on 15/Mar/15
In the movie stay hungry you can see that bridges with shoes has a slight advantage on arnold. I think Bridges could be 187/188 cm in his thirties, while arnold was 186/187. They are both clearly taller than 177 englund

starts at around 0.45
CDS said on 2/Mar/15
I am really confused about the movie, "Stay Hungry", from the 1970s. I saw this movie originally back in the '90s thinking Arnold Schwarzenegger was 6'2", so I'm thinking Bridges is probably 6'3"- made sense, he always seemed tall to me, and towered over his brother, Beau, who I always put in more the average range- 5'8"-5'9". But then in the past decade or so, I find out Bridges is only 6'1"-?? WTF?? Now I hear Arnie was measured at 6'1.5"- as a bodybuilder I have to assume that was barefeet-?? So is it possible Jeff's peak was actually more in the 6'2" area- which he himself claimed at one time-?? Maybe he's lost an inch or so (he is in his 60s now)-??
Dmeyer said on 24/Feb/15
Rob 6'0.25-0.5 today is much closer
[Editor Rob: 184 today is probably near the mark.]
Sonny said on 6/Feb/15
6'1.5 seems right for his peak height, but today he's closer to 6'0.5
cole said on 6/Jan/15
A strong 187 cm at peak and a weak 185 cm today is my best guess for Bridges. 6ft 1.75in and 6ft 0.75in respectively.
Sam said on 23/Dec/14
Trying to get him 10 credits and a tough call, The Last Picture Show I guess should be it but I also enjoy Fat City, Bad Company, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Cutter's Way, Tucker: A Man and His Dream, The Fisher King and Fearless. He's gotten better as an actor with more age and gravitas, as he was fantastic in his two w/ the Coens and Crazy Heart. Bridges was no match for De Niro, Hoffman, Pacino or the other more serious guys in the 70s but his late career has been better than those guys.
Mike said on 6/Dec/14
Rob, can you add more films like King Kong (1976), TRON, True Grit, Iron Man and TRON: Legacy?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Nov/14
Bridges appears to be edging Arnold in those
184.3cm said on 30/Oct/14
His posture is getting worse with age but this listing still seems reasonable. He was Barefoot in Tron legacy and not much shorter than his 'son' who gets listed 6'2 everywhere.
cole said on 26/Oct/14
@Editor Rob: A 27 year old Bridges and a 29 year old Arnold:

Granted these aren't the best pics, but it was all I could find...
Arnold couldn't possibly have started his shrinkage at 29, so maybe Bridges was in fact 6'2?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/14
Could be heading toward 6ft0½(184cm) now.
Hypado said on 2/Jul/14
Jeff Bridges

Peak: 187
Today: 184
jtm said on 20/May/14
his peak height should be downgraded to 6'1 and 6'0 for his current height.
Dmeyer said on 14/May/14
Considering how hé looks near 188cm Ryan while Jeff has 4.5cm shoes and Ryan 1.5cm type tops 2cm 6'0.25in is closer today might havé l'ost serious height
avi said on 3/May/14
Never over 6'1.
Sarah said on 22/Mar/14
6'1" is a good estimate. Looked about 2" taller than Downey in Iron Man, but they used lifts and camera angles to make RDJ look 5'10-5'11".
Sam said on 19/Mar/14
As I said, I think he's a little under 6'1" these days, he may be around 6'0.5".
FM said on 10/Mar/14
Rob, how tall would you say his dad was? Lloyd Bridges?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/14
He looked 6ft2 in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) if Eastwood was 6ft4 aged 25. He edged out Brosnan in The Mirror has Two Faces (1996) when he would've been in his late 40s.

"Peak height was 6ft 1.75in (187cm)"

You can't rule out 6ft2. But in Big Lebowski he was maybe about 1in below Goodman who could've been 6ft2.5/189cm but not more than that.
avi said on 4/Feb/14
Peak was weak 6'1
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
Although next to John Goodman he really looks 6'1" max.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
Really looks 6'2" in The Big Lebowski.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/14
Rob, is 5ft11 range today possible for Bridges?
[Editor Rob: not today]
Gacy said on 18/Jan/14
6'1" is a joke, Bridges is 5'11" today and John Goodman is 6".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/14
5ft11 even today is a joke.
Lenad is sexy said on 2/Jan/14
187cm max peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Dec/13
Maybe 6ft1.75 peak?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/13
Rob, do you think Bridges could've been his claim?
[Editor Rob: he may well have been 187 range, but a full 6ft 2 I'm not sure on that one.]
calvinator said on 26/Nov/13
6'0" max today. Still shoter than rynolds even with cowboy boots on In RIPD.
KG Flip said on 23/Oct/13
@Rampage Clover You commented about Ryan Reynolds height not being 6'2". Now you're saying Jeff Bridges is 6'1.5"? LMFAO
He is at least 1.5 inches shorter than Ryan on R.I.P.D.

Dejavu said on 12/Oct/13
He looks under 6'1 today at times but it could be his poor posture.
Sam said on 11/Oct/13
I saw him on a stage in person with others involved in The Big Lebowski in 2011 and he looked close to 6 foot even, a smidge under John Goodman, around the same as John Turturro and 3-4 inches under T-Bone Burnett. If you look at pictures, you notice how loose his posture can be too. I do believe after all the movies I've seen him in, however, that he was a solid 6'1" at peak. He could have lost almost an inch by now though.
thebad7 said on 9/Oct/13
Weak 6'2" for his peak. In 1974's THUNDERBOLT & LIGHTFOOT, Eastwood has a minimum of 2" and a bit of change on Bridges. Likewise, another poster mentioned 1973's THE LAST AMERICAN HERO. There is a scene at a party in which Bridges stands face-to-face with B movie/biker legend William Smith. Smith was a strong 6'2" in his prime, and Bridges looked a hair shorter (hair = 1" or less) than Big Bill.

Connor 184cm said on 14/Sep/13
He looks 6ft next to tim robbins whos a strong 6ft 4 id say Jeff is maybe 183-184 now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Sep/13
In The Big Lebowski
Jeff Bridges - 6ft1.5in/187cm
John Goodman - 6ft2.5in/189cm
Goose said on 4/Sep/13
I saw him with his wife in Los Gatos, California 2 years ago - I'm 5'10 and he had an easy 3 inches on me. 6'1 minimum and maybe 6'2.
Yaspaa said on 4/Sep/13
Arnie was wearing cuban heels in Stay Hungry. And in the scene with Ed Begley jr, he looks 6'0 max. He looks noticeably shorter than Ryan Reynolds in RIPD even though he's wearing a blatantly large heel.
Martin said on 14/Aug/13
Watch Stay Hungry with a peak Schwarzenegger. He's at least the same height, if not taller, close to 6'2 anyway. Nowadays I would not say below 6'.
cole said on 12/Jul/13
Maybe he was close to 6'2 at peak - maybe he wasn't. But he's not any taller than 6ft now a days, could even see him 5'11 and change. 182-183 cm range.
jtm said on 24/Jun/13
his peak height was 6'1. 6'0 is the height he is nowadays.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jun/13
6ft1.5-1.75in peak for definite. He did pull off 6ft2in beside Clint Eastwood.
Val said on 12/Jun/13
This man is a flat 6ft these days,no more. He has looked max 6ft next to pretty much any legit 6'1 or legit 6ft flat guy. For ex Gyllenhaal,a 182 cm guy,pretty much same height at Spike awards. 6'1 peak - sure, nowadays ? no.
Lenad is sexy said on 26/Apr/13
he was only 3 inches under tim robbins
me said on 11/Apr/13
6'2" peak straight out of bed maybe.
lenad is sexy said on 1/Apr/13

According to this 5' 10" more likely..
The Horse of FUNK said on 20/Feb/13
"Sam says on 2/Jan/13
was listed as 5'-11" in a magazine interview."

Do you believe everything you read in magazines?

Always looked a strong 6'1" when he was younger. 186-187cm. No clue about today.
James said on 19/Feb/13
Jeff Bridges 186cm
Clint Eastwood 192cm
Arch Stanton said on 18/Feb/13
Yes that's true Matt, I thought he looked somewhere between 2-3 inches shorter than Eastwood who, contrary to what James thinks was 6'4"ish peak...
Arch Stanton said on 18/Feb/13
He looked a genuine 187 peak.
Juju said on 13/Feb/13
Six one peak height. An inch shorter than six two forest whitaker in blown away
lenad is sexy said on 10/Feb/13
i wouldnt rule out the full 6'2 peak. No more than that though.
JimmyB said on 2/Feb/13
Looked like he had an inch, maybe 2, on 5'9 Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man, so I'm thinking 182cm these days..
Sam said on 2/Jan/13
was listed as 5'-11" in a magazine interview.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/12
Still looks at least 6ft 1in(185cm).
Martyr said on 20/Oct/12
had an easy inch on john turturro in Fearless. Maybe a hair shorter than Benicio Del Toro in the same flick. Always looked e weak 6'2 at peak for me...
Metropolis Wolf 186cm peak said on 15/Oct/12
Nowadays 183cm (6'0") when he goes to bed.
matt678 said on 27/Aug/12
in thuderbolt and light foot he looked about 2.5 inch shorter then easwood so he was probably 6 ft 1.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/12
Saw him in a movie with Barbara Striesand and Pierce Brosnan the other night. Forgot the name but he looked a tad bit taller than the latter. I think 6"2 peak isn't out of the question.
Bad Radio said on 1/Oct/07
I think hes 6'2.
sam said on 8/Aug/07
Goodman looks about an inch taller than Bridges, sometimes a little less.
S.J said on 7/Aug/07
i think he could be 6,1 he looked pretty tall in The Big Lebowski sometimes
i dont remember if he was the same height as John Goodman
George H. said on 30/Jul/07
Bridges was about an inch taller than Schwarzenegger in Stay Hungry. I tried to google for clear pictures, but mysteriously there are practically no sites with pictures of them next to each other where either one of them isn't looking down, or worse even, where they're not even standing. On Rotten Tomatoes, all pictures show up as a red cross. Can't be my computer because we checked on more than 1 PC.
Taylor said on 3/Jul/07
Bridges is not taller than Brosnan. He was half shorter. If Brosnan is 6'2 then bridges is 6'1.5
art said on 18/Jun/07
How Bridges is 185 cm if he was 1 in taller than 185-186cm Brosnan ?

And by the way on this site James Woods listed as 179-180 yet he was full 3 in shorter than Jeff in "Against All Odds"
I don't get it
Sam said on 21/May/07
Goodman's is legit 6'2+. Jeff, 6'1+. A Weak 6'2"
footballed28 said on 8/Feb/07
I will be a monkey's uncle is he was really only 181.8cm..that would make Brosnan 180 or less.....heck then I am taller than both...I was measured by a doctor to be 183.5 several months ago, which is very close to the 184 I always claimed...AWESOME!!!
LucioTheBest said on 23/Jan/07
Jeff and his brother Beau have both been examined by my father (orthopedic surgeon). Beau is 178 and Jeff is 181.8 cm. He has never been taller
talker said on 22/Dec/06
Jeff looks shorter than Arnold in Stay Hungry.
kene said on 16/Sep/06
he looks 10cm shorter than 195cm tim robbins.. 185cm is right..
Stephen said on 13/Sep/06
In the movie "Thunderbolt and Light Foot" he looked about an inch and a half shorter than Clint Eastwood who I believe is 6'3". So I would say Jeffs height is about 6'1.5"
gerald said on 1/Sep/06
I belive him to be 6ft 2" tall. He looks taller than pierce brosnan in the movie the Mirror has to faces.
Anthony said on 28/Aug/06
He's an inch shorter than Goodman in "The Big Lebowski". He's 6'1.
Lance said on 5/Jun/06
Yeah, I agree with Mr. Klaus. He's only prehaps a couple of inches shorter than 6'5" Tim Robbins in Arlington Road
MaxB said on 9/May/06
Actually, that's not true - watch "Big Lebowski" again. Jeff looked marginally shorter than John Goodman (who was 6ft1.5-6ft2) throughout the whole movie - up to an inch.
Mr. Klaus said on 7/Aug/05
It could be possible that he was that height when he was younger. He looks 3 inches shorter than Tim Robbins in Arlington Road.
CelebHeights Editor said on 7/Aug/05
In USAToday online, in July 2004 he stated his height as "6ft 2"
