How tall is Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone's Height

5ft 8.5in (174 cm)

Peak height was 5ft 9in (175 cm)
American actor best known for The Rocky, Rambo and Expendable series, Cliffhanger, Demolition Man, Judge Dredd and Cobra. In a 1991 interview with Longevity magazine he said "I'm 5'10" and in a 1993 edition of the New York Times added a fraction, saying "I'm exactly 5 feet 10 1/2 inches", although he once pushed his luck in a 1978 Playboy article claiming to stand "Five feet ten and three quarters tall."

Cinema.com, on meeting him, said "Sly, shorter than you expect at 5-foot-eight", which he even mentioned himself: "I'm shorter and skinnier than you Expected". His footwear has always been a source of contention and in a 1990 Chicago Times article, the journalist mentioned "The real-life Rambo is an official 5 foot 10 1/2 inches tall, but that is with the generous boost of what can only be described as elevator shoes". Indeed, a specialist Italian shoemaker once commented that he "made him 4.5 inches taller for 16 years!". Sly's penchant for lifts dates back to the 1970's, with fellow actor Kevin Conway remarking that Sly was only 5ft 9 and "wears lifts all the time". Sly himself even joked about it once, when commenting upon the size of Rocky IV co-star Dolph Lundgren:"I'm fighting with elevator shoes on, this is ridiculous." There are definitely several tricks to looking taller, one of which was highlighted by Expendables 3 co-star Kelsey Grammar, who said Sly was a great guy, "Except when he changed the camera angle a little bit to make me look shorter."

In the screenwriter William Goldman's book 'About Lies Stars Tell', he offered his own estimation of Sly's stature, saying "I had a hot lead that Sly was 67 inches," revealing his source to be a jogger of similar stature to Sly. Goldman described how he ventured into a swimming pool that Sly was in...and 10 minutes later, "He got out, grabbed a towel. I got out, grabbed a towel. He stood. I stood. Sixty-seven inches. Dripping wet." That estimate is shared by Hulk Hogan, who casually called Sly "Five Six/Five Seven". An ex-partner of Sly - Supermodel Janice Dickenson - claimed in her book 'Everything about me is fake' that when Sly was trying to pick her up, she recalled "Who was this guy to go dissing me while he's standing there in his custom-made elevator shoes." and also that "I couldn't believe how short he was". Another actress, Melinda Dillon - from F.I.S.T - commented in The Chicago Tribune that "I'm taller than Sly and that bothers him and we kid about it so I take off my shoes in some scenes. I can't slouch or I wouldn't be Anna. She's very upright."

Fellow action stars have even chimed in on his hard-to-pin-down height, most notably Jean Claude Van Damme, who once said "I'm 5-foot-10, a good size for movies. If you're too big a guy, it's hard to find good villains. That's why Stallone always has good villains. He's short."

Anybody catch the pic of mel gibson & sly at the italian art festival.. sly looking every bit of 5'7 or shorter !! God i hope he isnt wearing lifts cause he looks really short next to gibson !! And whats gibson 5'9 topps !!! He is clearly much taller than sly !! Look up the pic !! I saw it on facebook on the sylvester stallone page !!! There is no way he is 5'8 or better like people suggest on this site !!!

Where was Ramualdo and Greg in '06 talking to the G?
Greg said on 20/Feb/17
Goldman's assessment of his height is likely a little low, I think 5'8" peak was maybe about correct, probably closer to 5'7" now. In this pic of Sly on the famous steps with the steadicam operator (who also happens to be its inventor, Garrett Brown) he doesn't look very tall - admittedly, Garrett Brown is probably 6'4".

It's well known that Stallone always wore lifts in films and in real life.

Peak was 5ft8.5. Now 5ft7.5

5ft10 out of bed peak

No way Sly was ever 5'10. He always wanted to be, no doubt about that. He rounded himself up (way up) to this height time and time again, which is what made his height such a laughing matter - because he obviously wasn't - and made his reputation even worse.

He wore lifts in "Rocky".

They weren't lifts. They were just flat out high heeled boots (minimum 3").


James is a clockwork toy. He winds himself up and goes from page to page, spouts the phrase "Suchabody wore lifts" over and over again. Anything else is beyond him.
RisingForce said on 13/Feb/17
Danimal, those weren't 3 inch heels on the outside of the boot at least. These boots on Robert Downey Jr. are what 3 inch heels look like: Click Here Click Here Compare that to Sly's Rocky boots: Click Here Sly's boot heels aren't much bigger than a cowboy boot heel and no more than 2 inches. Of course, we don't know if he had extra lifts on the inside along with the roughly 2 inch heels on the outside.

5ft10 out of bed peak

Of course you would say that.
At best just over 5'9" out of bed at peak. Today he's just over 5'8" out of bed.

As I said, I now believe Sly to have been a weak 5'9" or about 5'8.75", but it's still very easy for me to see why people think he was a solid 5'9". He regularly looked 5'10.5"-5'11" in lifts, not all of them 3+ inches according to Rob and there are instances where he could strangely look about 5'10" even without big shoes. Here's a photo of a 67 year old Sly in barefeet Click Here His wife has been put at 5'9" and 5'9.5", but let's use the low figure to be conservative. Both their heads are down, but compare Sly's frame, even his legs to his wife and he doesn't look short there. The lowest I can see him there in 2013 is 5'8.5", which I do still believe was accurate as recent as 2013.
JAK said on 10/Feb/17
I think people have been very unfair to Stallone when it comes to his height, people make him out to be some sort of midget trying to compensate with big muscles, when the simple fact is that he's an average height muscular guy (at least in his prime).
John said on 10/Feb/17
Rob , i would strongly put him a solid 173 cm range both today and in the past..yes,you would say that due to his age an height variation must have occurred but we are talking about a guy whose body is continuosly trained ,kept in shape and certainly well stretched trough specific exercises..extraordinary posture + good elevator shoes may defined his "towering" figure over the years
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/17
Rob, what are the chances of him measuring 172cm today?
Editor Rob: more chance of Big G measuring 172 out of bed than Stallone measuring it in the afternoon.
mister_lennon said on 10/Feb/17
175-176 peak.
173-174 now
GP said on 9/Feb/17
I don't understand how anybody thinks that he is 5'9" or even worse like some claim above that mark. He always had 2-3" stuffed in his boots and the most he managed to look is close to 5'11" and that's counting his impeccable posture. I think the biggest lifts he wore were in Cobra since Nielsen was 6". He still barely hit 5'11" and that was visible next to Reni Santoni, who was 6" but had looser posture. All of the evidence leads to under 59" in his prime. Don't be fooled by lifts and camera angles.
James said on 9/Feb/17
He wore lifts in "Rocky".
RisingForce said on 8/Feb/17
No contradiction. I said factoring in everything, which includes shorter appearances such as when he looked no more than a weak 5'9" with 5'10" Ben Gazzara. I agree there are the times he looks surprisingly tall, even without footwear to explain it, but he could look shorter too, especially early in his career or in Cop Land, where he didn't look above 5'9".
MJKoP said on 7/Feb/17
RisingForce said on 4/Feb/17
In the first Rocky, he's barely any shorter in boxing shoes than Joe Frazier is in heels, almost eye to eye, but with that said factoring in everything, I have to amend my guess to 5'8.75" peak and 5'8.25" now to be precise. I think it makes the most sense for all the shorter and taller appearances. Give him 3 inch elevators + perfect posture and you have the 5'11" illusion he sometimes created. Plus, this aligns with Brigitte Nielsen's 174-175 cm guess.


You are basically contradicting yourself. An under 5'9" guy could not look as tall as Sly did next to Frazier.
Matt179 said on 7/Feb/17
Dude has been going Lift less for the past few years. He Might have come across this website and saw people were starting to notice his lifts lol

Kurt Russell is 5'9" with lifts.
Dan said on 1/Feb/17
How do you get the real height of an actor who's been lifting more than just weights for most of his career? Simple, just watch Tango & Cash. He and Kurt are head to toe butt naked in that prison shower scene. They are exactly the same height. Case closed. Over n out

damn, oh wait. Kurt's height is also an enigma. lol

ok back to square one...
Arthur said on 31/Jan/17
AH this 5ft7 garbage still claiming in this forum After lots of evidence. Sly was 5ft9 at peak. 5FT8.25 NOW. And he never weared 5.5 inches elevator shoes he generally weared 3inch 2.5inch types and looked 5ft10 5ft11 range. Show me a photo that sly looks 5ft7 ? Evidence ? Someone posted his photo with burt young rock 1 film. Which sly was wearing converse burt wearing 3cm shoes. Sly is still taller than him by 2cm in that photo without liftless his converse. And Burt was 171cm peak where as sly was a clear 5ft9 guy.. 5FT7 is out of possibilities which teenagers and manlets wants sly to be. Even in these days he is still strong 5ft8.

What's the tallest Stallone could have peaked at?
Editor Rob: Harris, I think I can understand 5ft 9.25 guesses for him, but 5ft 10 seems harder to believe.
Sam said on 27/Jan/17
@Rob, his hand mold at the Hard Rock is humongous. So is Wesley Snipes!
Regarding their arm lengths relative to their height, would you say they both have unusually long arms?
Which would help making them look taller on screen...
If a guy with T-Rex arms lifted, wouldn't it be plainly obvious?
Jalen C Gilmer said on 25/Jan/17
Maybe 5'9.5 in his younger days and 5'9 now seems fair...
Free said on 25/Jan/17
Stallone has never been taller than 5-7.

Look at Kojack where 5-10 Telly Savales has over 3 inches on him.
Brad said on 23/Jan/17
Trust me, he was more than Stallone.
berta said on 23/Jan/17
stallone realy start to looks shorter the last 3 years. peak 175-176. i know alot guess him shorter to make fun of him wearing lifts. but in reality he wasnt that short. these days he can look with good posture 174 but if he would stand like everyone else he could probably look 173. i think now by litle over 70 years old he have lost maybe 2,5 cm. and that is very good for a guy that have used hgh
Brad said on 21/Jan/17
I got a photo today, a production shot from "Hooper" where Burt Reynolds wears a pair of custom wedged boots with massive 1978 heels that blows away any Stallone footwear.....Burt, the king of wanting height.
Editor Rob: certainly Burt was another master of making himself look taller.
Brad said on 19/Jan/17
Those cowboy boots with Travolta way back when (wedged up) might be his biggest whoppers...more so than the Rocky Balboa premiere munsters.
James B said on 19/Jan/17
Hogan in 2005 was 6'3.5
Shredder said on 18/Jan/17
Rob , why does he look so tall there with Hogan?
Editor Rob: lifts and impeccable posture can help Sly, as can beneficial angles.

Hogan is no more than 6'3" today.

Wrs567 said on 16/Jan/17
Rob, who do you think would win in a height off? between Sly and Robert Downey Jr?

Considering they bought all their essential tools and trickery to the table?

It's a tough one for me, I think Downey could take it, he just seems more cunning
Editor Rob: Wrs, Sly is winding down the elevators over the last few years...Downey is still using them, so today Robert would win, but if he faced off with a 1980's sly with cowboy elevators, he'd surely be trounced.
John. said on 16/Jan/17
Rob,what do You think is the maximum height boost He experienced wth his custom shoes until now ?
Editor Rob: if Sly ever wore Nearly 4 inch, I'd congratulate him, because trying to walk about in public in real monsters is bloody hard.

In some films it might be workable, but out and about running away from autograph trolls, man, that would be hard.

I think a solid 3 inches he'd have got on some occasions, maybe 3.5 at the most with a cowboy+internal lift, similar to what Burt Reynolds probably got at his peak, so as to pull off looking 6ft 1 at times.
James said on 15/Jan/17
Hogan is no more than 6'3" today.
Pierre said on 15/Jan/17
Hulk Hogan is probably shorter than you can imagine
Shredder said on 14/Jan/17
His hair itsn't adding much with Hogan , Even If Hogan was just 6'3 there , no way is Sly looking under 5'11.5 and his footwear wasn't even that crazy , just a little bulk to it , 1.5 if that , so even in lifts we could still get at least a 5'9 and change Sly there.
James said on 14/Jan/17
Sly's wig makes him appear taller.
Shredder said on 14/Jan/17
I always wondered why he looked so tall in those pics with Hogan? He looks over 5'11

Yes agree he's been keeping the lifts in the closet. Good for him. As far as weathers goes wow for 68 the dude looks awesome


ROB, Based upon the pic with sly and weathers and since you've met and photographed with weathers. How tall would you say sly is?? I know you can't see footwear but I'm sure sly is t wearing flats lol
Editor Rob: Sly still looks between 5ft 8-8.5, you could make a case for anywhere in that range.
Jim Hopper said on 11/Jan/17
Looks 5-7 ish next to Carl at the 40th Rocky do.
Jeff said on 11/Jan/17
John said: As for forgetting his lifts, I have noticed last few years that he does go liftless regularly even at big events now.


I've noticed this a couple of times too. More kudos to him for it. Sly is mighty enough without having to try and fool everyone into thinking he's taller than he is. We all know he's not a tall man, that doesn't matter. You don't have to be tall to be a man.

Flat out 5' 8" with Weathers, maybe even a 1/2" less. Wow!
berta said on 10/Jan/17
hm in that photo with weathers he could looke weak 174 guy. i think in 3 years he will be down to 173. he is in that age where he finaly will lose 1 inch pretty fast
Jock said on 10/Jan/17
There's no saying Carl Weathers isn't wearing some mighty footwear/lifts himself. That guy is pretty cocky and wouldn't pass up a chance to make himself look even better. But what could have been a battle (of footwear) to rival anything they ever did on screen turned out to have a very clear winner in this case.
Brad said on 9/Jan/17

there's very few sites I still visit from 10 years ago, it's natural to move on or lose interest in topics or sites.

Running a site with ongoing comments is tough long-term. I doubt many would manage more than a year or 2 of comment moderation/replies before they hit the wall and quit.

This comment is number 1,025,766 that I have read in my control panel. Luckily I manage to keep a lot of junk off the site.

Without filters to reduce spam/bots I'd have hit the wall myself after a few years and I'd view myself as mentally tough!

@Dingus I 100% agree. Those sub 5'8" comments are truly bitter. Imagine people now saying Sly is shorter than Bieber, just lol. He was 5'9.25" peak, now 5'8.5", slightly above average for his generation and now roughly 1 in under average in the US.
Dingus said on 17/Dec/16
I honestly don't think he's lost that much height. I think he might just have given up trying to conceal his real height as hard as he used to. My guess is he was just over 5'09.00" at his peak and is probably just under the 69 inch mark these days.

But having said that, he does indeed keep himself in great shape and has fine posture (most likely fear-induced, but it works!).
JF said on 13/Dec/16
There's a lot more than "facials, pampering, even makeup" going on with Stallone. The guy's face gets higher and his hairline gets lower with every passing year, contrary to the natural order.
RisingForce said on 12/Dec/16
Still having mostly dark hair whether natural or at least a decent dye job gives the illusion of looking younger outside of surgery. With that said, HGH/testosterone or not, Sly has always been in genuinely impressive shape for his age, and that's what's more surprising. Many others have retained a more youthful appearance facially, but few have physically. That's probably why he only now seems to be shrinking a bit these last few years post-Expendables 2, along with maintaining great posture, and it wouldn't be surprising if he's made a conscious effort to try to avoid height loss. He was looking about 5'8" or a hair over at the Creed premiere, but typically still looks 5'8.5"-5'9" to me in most comparisons. I'm more sold on 5'8.75"-5'9" peak than current, but anywhere between 5'8" and 5'9" current is my guess.
Ronald said on 11/Dec/16
Rob,i noticed that some web sites and forums report him as a 173 cm, specyfing the fluctuation from 5'9 to 5'10 due to the elevator footwear.Since Stallone along with Bieber ,Cruise and Schwarzenegger is still an uncertainty can we keep the 173 in consideration too?Also,even in the info that You provided above we have Cinema.com that put him anready in the 5'8 mark long time ago .
Editor Rob: Sly is fighting every day to not be 5ft 8...I can picture him increasing the time spent on the hang-bar and having each of his daughters pull his arms and legs each day...
James B said on 6/Dec/16
Wow rob he's 70 he looks younger like in his 60s
Editor Rob: when you are famous and image/looks is part of your job, you do end up spending a lot more than your average bloke.

Many of these actors get facials, pampering, even makeup.

Johan said on 29/Nov/16
There is something to that 5'11" impression. When I was younger I heard many people referring to him as 180 cm.

A friend of my father met him in person however and described him as 5'9" - 175cm. This was back in 1992.
My father didn't believe him but seems he was right after all.

He still looks to be holding 5'8" but just barely and with perfect posture.
Arthur said on 27/Nov/16
Bernie there is only one explanation to your question. These people who are see him in real life are lying and I am pretty sure they have never seen Sly in real life. Sly has a photo with 5ft6.5 glenn this photo explains everything. And I have said millions of times I have met Sly and Eddie Murphy in hualai kaupeluhu hotel in los angeles. I also said several times both looked only 0.5cm 1cm taller than me barefeet. I am around 173.3 -1.73.6 cm in the middle of the day. Rob has the right to not to post this. I am only speaking with my heart my justice my respect to this wonderfull site. Sly has a good body veins everywhere but he is not a big guy. He is extremely fit but there is one truth the hollywood media making his 36 cm arms to 43 cm in films. And making him 165 lbs weight to 190 lbs heavyweight boxer range. If you still want to believe this 5ft10 200lbs 44 cm arms. Then continiou to believe that. I have respect everyone in this forum firstly rob then all of you.I finally needed to speak that hard. Because upgrading or downgrading a celeb non stop isnt respectfull. Ä°n my opinion Robs listing is %100 correct....
bernie said on 25/Nov/16
In the Video from Chris175 you can't judge his height, only that hes taller than 5'5"..., but how much..no way...
Another thing...Really astonishing and interesting at the same time that two people who have seen him live & barefoot are soo far apart from each other in estimating Stallones height.. MJKoP as well known is strongly convinced about at least 5'10" and John B whom Stallone also walked by says 5'7"... I mean we're talking about barefoot.. how can one man be so wrong in judging his height? (I don't say you're the one, John B.. but quite interesting to me.. No bad feelings against anyone, but i can differentiate between 5'7" and 5'10"..keeping in mind this person walks you by barefoot..!! No magic skills necessary...Regards

Met Mr Stallone when I was working in Jury's Hotel in Ireland (limerick) 2003 He stayed a few nights, he used the Hotels Pool and Gym, he was nice guy and I got to meet him 3 or 4 times. The Hotel closed off the pool for him and a few friends between 6am and 7am one morning and I had to make sure no one would enter between these times. I'm dead on 5'9 and Mr Stallone who walked by me barefoot to the changing area was shorter then me he was around 5'7 - 5'7 and a half - other times I saw him he was looking 5'9 to 5'10 with footware. This had been a running theme with other staff who joked about his height as one moment he looked short next he was taller.

There has been so much debating as to Stallone's height over the years. His must be one person everybody expects to be taller, because he has the sort of exceptional physique associated with Mr Universe-style contests. I admit that I would have believed him to be well over the 6ft mark. He also used a small and dainty actress to play his wife Adrian in the 'Rocky' films, giving us all the impression that he was tall!
But whatever height he is, he isn't jealous and nasty about tall actors; it was Sylvester Stallone who worked with the 6ft John Travolta to get him fit and buff for the film 'Saturday Night Fever' and John said he was incredibly patient and devoted to helping him lose his surplus poundage and turning him into a muscle machine!
He also writes such touching films that nobody can dispute that this man's heart is in the right place!
Editor Rob: Sandy, for me Sly Stallone is a 6ft 2 man stuck in a 5ft 9 man's body.


I can't believe you think he's 5'9" Rob? I promise you that barefoot, you would be taller than him.
Danimal said on 24/Nov/16
5'8.5" peak
5'7.25" today

That is normal (average) height loss for a 70 year old man.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Nov/16
It's a matter of perception I guess, I always thought of Stallne as quite stocky actually, I thought about 5 ft 8. When you really look at him in films though he can often look nearer 5 ft 10. 5 ft 9 peak is reasonable.
jtm said on 24/Nov/16
I thought there was plenty of evidence he was never over 5'8. Ditto Michael Jackson.

@ArthurJohn: Yeah, at first I wouldn't guessed he was under 6ft given the type of roles he's plays. Deep voice, muscular...
ArthurJohn said on 22/Nov/16
I always thought he was tall. He tends to give off a 6' impression at times (to me), but there have been some people estimating him at 5'7" when meeting him in his prime. I couldn't see any less than 5'8.5" at his peak at the very lowest.

I'd say he stood in a solid 5'9" range, as there's plenty of evidence supporting that.

Stallone with what appears to be just socks on. Boxing with some girl who I don't know. But in the background watching is a man called jay glazer who is supposed to be 5 foot 5. Interesting, I think it puts him in the 5 foot 8 range


The angles make it almost impossible to tell anything from that video. Downright horrible for the sake of comparison.

I've only seen Stallone in person once, in 1988. He arrived at a boxing match in LA with a date and two bodyguards. I was astonished at how short he was. Couldn't see his shoes, but he was 5-9 tops.
Brad said on 15/Nov/16

Zane said on 27/Oct/16
Rob,Is a solid 173cm a good possibility ?Or You think 174 -175 cm range is more accurate ? I keep viewing pics where He stands with other celebrities that fall in the 5 9 range and i see that Sly is able to keep on them with his footwear.Elevator shoes and a tremendous posture are two remarkable boosts for comparison shots with him
Editor Rob: today he might fall somewhere in 173-4 zone, he has reached an age that his body will be finding it much harder to repair itself and that natural age related degeneration of cells will be occurring more frequently.

I think he's done well staying somewhere in 5ft 8 range at 70, he's had a lot of action roles over 40 years.
Junior31 said on 24/Oct/16
Woke up 5'9 in his peak. Walked around at 5'8.75-5'8.5 during the day. These days 5'8.25 and drops a hair under 5'8. Roughly 1 inch height loss. Why should he be any different then anyone his age.

I think these numbers are way off. I saw Sly in person at the Arnold classic I'm thinking in 2010. I'm 5'7" & walked out of the restroom almost into one of his bodyguards. When he walked by me, I'm guessing that he was 5'3" tops...

Women never take into account that they wear 3-6" stiletto heals.

Even if she had half a foot(the very maximum of the range you gave) of heel height added to her natural 5'7", he'd still be nowhere near as much as four inches shorter than her, and that's with him in completely flat shoes.

TJ said on 17/Oct/16
Shannon, did you have 6 inch heels on at the time and conveniently forget that you were walking around at about 6ft? Of course Stallone isn't 5'3 tops.

@Shannon - yeah, great.. that seems to be a very very realistic guess..! So means, van damme, statham, banderas, snipes etc. who are pretty equal in height with sly are all around 5'3"..??

i believe he was exactly 174cm when he was younger and has the best posture ever-now he wear lifts all the time and looks almost 5'10
richie said on 9/Oct/16
@Rob..Hi Rob cheers for acknowledging my previous post, yes i agree with yourself and several of the guys on this site regarding Stallone's height, i don't think any of us are looking to purposely downgrade the star but it stands to reason, if he was a genuine 5'10" barefoot, what with the lifts he wears, he's be coming in at around 6'1" and he's nowhere near that. Recent photos of himself and Carl Weathers show a difference of some 3 inches and Carl is probably closer to 6' these days, he's 5'8" at a push...
Editor Rob: with 50 guesses on Sly that's a good indication the typical estimate is around 5ft 9...

today 5ft 8.25 may well be possible.

Ive been a member here for a number of yrs , & i still dont get the debate over his height estimate ,, its just simple math & numbers !!! If was really 5'10 or even 5'9 for that matter ,, his footwear would bring him to 6' or more !!to look 5'10 or 5'11 ,, it only stands to reason he is under 5'8 without his 3-4 inch shoes/lifts !!! And i want to put to bed his height comparision to burt young !!! Burt young has stated he is taller than stallone & i notice people posting alot of pics of sly & burt young when sly is in boxing shoes ,,slys boxing shoes are wedged up as well !!!! So if they look similiar in height ,, than it would stand to reason sly is shorter without his wedged up boxers on !!! Same for grudge match !!! Sly in wedged up boxers as well !! Shorter than deniro as well without his boxers on !!!'

Stallones true height is 5'7 !!! With his generous footwear he hits the 5'10 mark !!! The lady who playd his wife in FIST said sly was shorter than her & she is 5'8 & further stated she was asked to wear flats the entire movie so he could appear taller than her !!!
Dmeyer said on 27/Sep/16
Rob even thaugh i think Sly many Times just wore thick footwear with no lifts like cubans or hogan in the past in the 1,5-2in , but in movies like lock up and d§molition Man could realy look 5 ft 11ish h§ defentlty had § 1-1,5in inside 1,3-1,5in boots
Editor Rob: yeah, in films you just aren't sure what he was wearing inside shoes.
richie said on 27/Sep/16
Stallone definitely isn't 5'10", a guy of that stature would be 5'11"ish with flat shoes or trainers and Stallone barely reaches that height with lifts, i'm not looking to purposely downgrade but i would suspect he's around the 5'8" mark and the lifts boost him to 5'10/11" , which is the height he appears in most of his movies
Editor Rob: I think someone mentioned Lock Up and he really could look pretty close to John Amos, although he had thick boots on, you can see them in one scene, like a 1.5-1.6 style.

Funnily he had a prison number and it was '510'...only Sly would get a prison number to be the height he claimed!

A 5'9 guy trying to be taller, thats all. One of the most insecure celebs in the world about his height, despite everything he has accomplished on the big screen. He is always wears his custom lifts, and maybe that wasn't so obvious in his youth, but now its looks hilarious and painfully obvious. He knows all the tricks of the trade of how to look taller than his fellow celebs whether through posture or lifts. I don't understand why, besides the obvious, but he already has that reputation as a no nonsense ass kicker, and can still pull off the look, but I will admit it is fun waiting for what he is going to wear next!

As a teen I always thought he was 5'10 in the Rocky movies but having a good look at him now 5'9 is probably the most accurate. At least then anyway. 5'8.5 would be my lowest guess.
richie said on 15/Aug/16
@Danimal...I do agree with your take on it, Stallone minus any dodgy footwear is around the 5'8/9" range, he was very slightly taller than Burt Young when wearing flat trainers and Young was pushing 5'8" though no more which would make Stallone 5'8.5" ish...This again reads true in Copland where we see Stallone, barefoot, literally towered by Ray Liotta by some 3/4 inches and Liotta is slightly above average at just 6' so Stallone's official height of 5'10" simply does not read true. Very hard to pin down, i'd gamble and suggest 5'8.5" without shoes...

@jorge Only 3 countries in the world have not accepted the metric system, or the International System of Units, United States, Myanmar and Liberia as per BIPM (SI maintenance agency) (can't place a link to their site here)
Many do use the old imperial system (feet, inches etc.) on the side but nevertheless, your 'rest of the world' is quite small by comparison.

On the actual topic at hand, 172-174 seems legit.

Could pull off 177cm range in his prime and sometimes even 178cm.

He has short legs. He tried the five foot ten (and more) for years but wasn't 5' 9". His Rambo boots were custom wedged. Go to any awards show in the 70's and carefully look at his heels, they are huge. The dance and move with Ali exposes priceless whopper heels.
Sam said on 9/Aug/16
I thought that he could look 177cm in his prime, maybe because of good proportions and generous footwear.
FrankR1 said on 8/Aug/16
Throughout the 1980s, Sly's height was listed at 5'9.5" in various newspapers and TV guides. He was definitely under 5'10", and it took the heels from his Rambo boots to make him look close to 6 feet. His body was very well proportioned for a man of his modest height.

Stallone's height is literally all over the place and is so difficult to judge, he's definitely a lift wearer no question and could be as short as 5'8" flat, Telly Savalas had a good 2 inches on him in Kojak and Savalas wasn't overly tall at 5'11" and Ray Liotta towered him by some 3 inches in Copland and Liotta is just 6' so i'd say minus any dodgy footwear, could be as low as a weak 5'8", barefoot

RisingForce said on 31/Jul/16
Best guess would be 5'8.75", or in other words, a weak 5'9" until his mid 60's, imo. But I think he's currently down to just 5'8" the last year or so and currently now that he's. 70.

What a shrimp! Of course, I wouldn't call him that in person.
Jug said on 25/Jul/16
On an episode of Kojak, Telly Savalas had about three inches on him. It's possible that Stallone is only 5'7. I would say about 5'8 at the most at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jul/16
Rob, how likely is 176cm peak?
Editor Rob: you could make a case for it, but I think with his footwear varying so much, he has always been a barefoot enigma to many.

He got enormous lift in his custom Rambo boots. Big heel with expensive custom made wedge inside. 5-8.5 max during those early films. Can you imagine him in those Rambo jobs at Sly's "5 foot 10 and 3/4" height fib?

jpdb said on 12/Jul/16
i've actually heard that sly may only be either 5'6" or 5'7". plus i heard arnie may only be 5'10".

Rob, would a 70th birthday present of a 1cm downgrade be possible?
Editor Rob: it would quite possibly be the worst gift imaginable for Sly.
Ejel Khan said on 11/Jul/16
Rob, is Sly the most controversial celeb on here?
Editor Rob: probably, but there is basically a core group like Stallone/Cruise/Arnie/Pitt/Bieber who all have been argued about for years, with each having several thousand comments submitted.

I'm sure Stallone over 11 years had something like 5000 comments about his height! That's a book's worth!
Brad said on 11/Jul/16
Looking at the barefoot shots of him on the boat from a few days ago you might be right, he's looking shorter.

Standard 2 point 5 customs with Clint. Just needs an elevator button when Clint appears. Hangin by a thread at 5 foot 8 in '16. Wonder if he still fibs 5 foot 10.

He's long since dipped below 5'8" Brad. He's a 70 year old man now and the average will have lost 1.2". I give him 5'8.5" in his prime and 5'7.5" today.
Shawn said on 10/Jul/16
Hey Brad, how much of do you think Sly would be willing to give up of his fortune if a genie could make him a 6 footer?
Marshmallow said on 5/Jul/16
Saw him at Red lobster and he's 5'8 wearing shoes.

custom made elevator shoes with Clint. for me is very easy to notice them. Classic 2.5 inchs custom made elevator shoes. However i am sure that Sly was a strong 5'9" in his prime.
Brad said on 1/Jul/16
5' 9 3/4" prime is almost G talk. He never hit 5 foot nine in his life. His Rambo boots were packed soild with wedge and a good heel....he needed to look stealth taller without a Vin board used with The Rock. Telly looking at his monster boots: "Nice try my New Yawk friend, nobody takes Telly" (lollipop put back in and a pinch of Sly's cheek)
Johan said on 1/Jul/16
G with his portmans met his match in Stallone with his Rambo boots.

5'10.5" next to eastwood with shoes.
Frank said on 1/Jul/16
I think that in his young days, 5´9" 3/4 was very possible.
Now he is a lot of shorter, probably no more 5´8" , we should remember that he is 70 years¡¡¡

An almost 5ft11 guy claiming 6ft1 makes me wanna put my fist through a wall…the sheer arrogance of it
Shredder said on 29/Jun/16
5'10.75 is his morning height , 5'10 at night , In lifts.
Brad said on 29/Jun/16
5-8 all over the place......where were these people when the wild one was waiting for his measure eating a Nathan's dog in the Volvo? Sal napkins, I need to look good for Rob measuring 2" less than Sly at 5' 10". Nobody takes Telly in his Telly bricks, even Sly in heeled boots in '75.
Jesse Stone said on 28/Jun/16
I could make a bet now, that Sly's shoes were NOT normal at the event with Eastwood! Just look at some of the Don's custom footwear and there can't be any doubt he wore lifts with Eastwood.
Maybe Clint was around 6'2 - but you can't deny Slys eemm...nice shoes :)
James said on 28/Jun/16
I think it's easy for many people to confuse inches to feet and inches. I've known guys who were measured at 70" and they assumed that was 6 foot even. Or 72" inches was 6 foot 2. Clearly not the case.
I see little proof to suggest that Sly is under 5'8". I know these guys tend to shrink. But not that much. Sly takes better care of his body than many of those other's who are shrinking at a fast rate.
Case and point I would give him 5'8 1/2" just as this page says.
Dmeyer said on 27/Jun/16
Eastwood was near 6'2,5 back then And sly shoes look normal
Paul said on 26/Jun/16
Rob, is 5'8" possible?
If he was 5'9" he wouldn't be called 5'7" or that range by anyone. An error of 2 inches in height cannot by anyone. I would say he was 5'8" max in his youth. Now maybe 5'7.75 or thereabouts.
Editor Rob: another couple of years and I think he will probably look 5ft 8 most of the time.
Peter 179cm said on 25/Jun/16
I'd say 174cm peak and about 173 now,maybe 172cm at worst so he's pretty much a 5'8 guy now.
jim said on 24/Jun/16
Sly is 5 feet 7 inches tall. What the 70s TV series Kojak. Sly is standing next to Telly Savalas (Kojak) in a scene in Kojak's office, Kojak is looking down at Sly.. Telly was known to be 5 feet 10 inches, Sly is at least 3 inches shorter and the shortest and smallest man in most of the scenes.
Dmeyer said on 23/Jun/16
Even thaugh sly in some movies And premières did were elevators shoes or cowboy boots , in rambo 2 hé apeared just 5ft 9 so maybe his army boots were regular 1,2inchers
Frankie68 said on 22/Jun/16
@jesse stone !!! Nice pics of sly & eastwood !!! Imagine how short sly is next to him without his shoes on that u no are packing heat !!! Sly is lucky if hes 5'7 ...he looks really short next to eastwood !!!
burby said on 22/Jun/16
The Sly section is slowing to a "3 pepperoni slices for lunch Sal" crawl with so many going for 5'8".....
andre said on 21/Jun/16
sly is about 5ft7.5 barefoot and 5ft8.5 with shoes on

Solid 5'9" at peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/16
Peak: 176cm

172.5-174cm peak, but now 167.5-171cm imho.
Brad said on 22/May/16
Meeting Clint Eastwood and "maybe elevators"? Try 100% custom made elevators.
Morris said on 22/May/16
he is 165 cm a bit more without shoes
Zane said on 21/May/16
Yes,173 cm fot the go
Micho said on 21/May/16
@Arthur ,you are right,he can even get above 5'10 in his shoes!
Gaz said on 20/May/16
Click Here with 5'7.5 listed Steven Spielberg. Not far of by the looks of it.
Jesse Stone said on 19/May/16
In 1993 when Mr. Eastwood and Mr. Stallone met, the case seemed clear:

Click Here
Click Here

...but for my sense of justice in terms of height something is suspicious in Sly's shoes... - just take a look at that odd looking arch ..

Click Here

And nowadays Eastwood is short and Sly's trying to be tall ... elevators 100 % Click Here


Now think about it yourself. Eastwood might have hit 185 cm (6'1) back then in 1993 and still Sly in (maybe elevators) those shoes....

I say it is a need to downgrade Mr. Stallone to 173 cm (5'8) !!
Arthur said on 19/May/16
I am researching height for 5 years. I know custom wedged footwear much better than you. Thats why Sly looked nearly 1inch 1.5inch shorter than Arnold in some photos .))
andre said on 18/May/16
Rob likes to add height when they are shorter sly is 5ft8 with his shoes on so he is 5ft7 barefoot
Brad said on 17/May/16
Arthur doesn't understand custom made wedged up footwear.
Arthur said on 15/May/16

I dont see a 4inch difference in here. More like 2.5 inch 2.3 inch range difference. Saying 4inch is blatantly provocation ! If we look at their prime difference yes there was a clear 4inch difference . But now ıts more like a 2.5 inch difference between them. The reason of this that tall people like Arnold shrink way more than shorter people. My guess for their current height ::

Sly : 172.5cm - 1.74 cm depending on the part of the day.
Arnold : 180cm - 182cm depending on the part of the day.

It is impossible for Sly to measure 5ft9 in nowadays. Maybe with 12 -14 hours of sleep he can measure 1.74 .7cm - 1.74 .8 cm at most. If I were Rob I would list him 1.73 cm.
Dmeyer said on 15/May/16
I have seen pics of sly with Clint Eastwood And snipes from 1993 were sly has very normal shoes And he looked à strong 175 if not 176cm
Brad said on 13/May/16
He still pulls a weak 5' 8". Like we have lives yellin' about a 1/2" on Stallone's height in '16. Belieb-it.
Danimal (176-178cm) said on 13/May/16
Christian said on 25/Apr/16
Pictures from 2014 when he still looked 5'9'' imo. Click Here

He was NEVER 5'9" barefoot. Was in the 5'8"-5'8.5" range. Today he's max 5'7.5".
Danimal (176-178cm) said on 13/May/16
Brad said on 10/May/16
I said 5' 8.5" 10 years ago on this site and 5' 8" now. He's in built up customs with Arnold. The other Brad is incorrect.

I agree with you on his peak height Brad, but at 70 years old he's 5'7.5" today.
Brad said on 12/May/16
Sal, get Bernie some fries, I can't finish them in the back of this Volvo, I'm due upstairs with Rob in an hour. Sly is 5' 8" flat in '16.
miko said on 11/May/16
5'9 prime. 5'8 today. He held his prime up until his early 60's IMO. Most of his height loss has come in the last 5 years.

Arnold was around 6'1 prime. 5'11 range today.
bernie said on 11/May/16
@ Junior31 - this is also not the Brad i know...This pic definately proofs not 5'9" for Sly! Arnold at this age is no way 6'1" barefeet, second you can't see their footwear..Third...4.5 inches shorter??? I Don't see that..!

@ Brad - What happened..?
Jcpenny said on 10/May/16
Virgo Mortensen is shorter than 5'8" I saw Gi Gi Rice in front of him at Columbus Ohio Security line for TSA. I thought Gi Gi was with him but she was actually going to her grandfather's funeral. Her dad was my boss and his son inlaw is Jefferson from Married with Children second neighbor husband. Vigo was wearing my climber shoes or some type of really flat tennis shoe. I'm just shy of 5'9" after injuring my back went from 5'10". He was much shorter than me even factoring my shoes. He was close to 3" shorter or more with shoes on both of us and def not taller than Gi Gi. I thought the guy looked like a short Viggo until I saw his ticket.

Probably Sly was around 5'9".5 in his prime and perhaps now 5'8

He was average stature and now a little short but he never was a dwarf although he wears lifts.
