How tall is Sylvester Stallone ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Sylvester Stallone's height is 5ft 8.5in (174 cm)

Peak height was 5ft 9in (175 cm)
American actor best known for films like the Rocky series, the Rambo series, the Expendables 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". The highest he has claimed - quoted in a 1978 Playboy interview - was that "I'm five feet ten and three quarters tall."

Cinema.com, on meeting him, said "Sly, shorter than you expect at 5-foot-eight", which he once 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!". Whilst that might be a bit of an exaggeration, there are definitely tricks to looking taller.

In the screenwriter William Goldman's book 'About Lies Stars Tell', he revealed his own estimation of Sly's stature, saying "I had a hot lead that Sly was 67 inches," revealing his source to be someone who also stood around that height and had jogged with Sly one morning. Goldman goes on to describe how he went into a swimming pool that Sly was in...and about 10 minutes later, "He (sly) got out, grabbed a towel. I got out, grabbed a towel. He stood. I stood. Sixty-seven inches. Dripping wet." 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 Belgian superstar 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."

He clearly clears 5'8 peak
Jesse Stone says on 20/Dec/14
@Danimal: Yes, I know. Thank's for that! I just thought if somebody for whatever reason can't watch the video....

He looks no more than a flat 5'8 there. Well if about 5'8.5 was his prime he has shrunk under that with age... I know that. My dad who is now 67 years old was 5'10 in his prime and now he's around 5'9.

Here a gif of Stallone next to Graham Norton on his show. You can see, he's jumping a bit, but Stallone isn't taller than 5'8 Norton. Has he forgotten his lifts at home? Click Here

I already posted the entire video 2 days ago.
Vibram says on 19/Dec/14
Click Here He looks 6cm taller than 168cm Osvaldo Ardiles (far left) in Escape To Victory. On the furthest right is Bobby Moore - 179cm, and next to him Michael Caine - 184cm. Pele is said to be 171cm, but he his heading the ball. No lifts for Stallone, they're all wearing soccer boots. No camera angles. Stallone was about 174cm prime (5ft8.5), possibly weak 175cm.

Elevators in Rocky IV? He's worn built up boxing footwear, Rambo boots, massive heel covered by hung pants, etc. for decades. G really? What a surpise he admits.

BREAKING NEWS: Stallone admits wearing elevator shoes in Rocky IV! He finally said the word! 1:28 in the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kq92agzxObs
[Editor Rob: "Fighting with elevator shoes on" hah, good to see that line!]
Jesse Stone says on 17/Dec/14
Rob, I just saw your opinion on Stars who claim their height in footwear on C. Thomas Howell's site. I toally agree with you. But think about it: Has Stallone ever said the height he has claimed would be barefoot? I don't think so. Maybe he always claimed his "5'10" with shoes and lifts.
[Editor Rob: it is a way to cover yourself...'oh, I thought everybody said their height in shoes' or 'Oh, I must have been measured in my shoes then'.

Jesse Stone says on 17/Dec/14
@Junior31: That's exactly the evidence that can be found out there. I really don't know what this guy was thinking when he saw Sly again in 2007. Yea he's a head taller that back than.

Once again a proof that Stallone (as much as I like him as an actor) fools everyone with his height. Thanks for telling us were those pictures are to find.

Jesse.
Derek d, says on 17/Dec/14
@Junior31

I don't find that old photo particularly good for comparing heights. It's not a full body shot and we can't see how much SLY is actually bending there. Why don't you just watch the video footage of them sparring? Click Here

It's way better evidence for what you're trying to prove. If Duran was really 5'6.5, then Sly looked 5'8 tops, not 5'9. People even made observations how small he looks in the comment section.
Frankie68 says on 17/Dec/14
@parker...he may appear "slightly" taller....and thats..."slightly".....but....and this is a big but....im sure hes standing on his 3-4 inch shoes......bet the bank ....hes shorter....
Junior31 says on 16/Dec/14
Someone! Anyone! Please search "Sylvester Stallone Roberto Duran Rocky". In the images you will see a photo of sly with Duran. They are hugging and Stallone has his fist under Duran's chin. The photo is from 40 years ago when both were at there prime.

There you will see the 5'6.5 Duran with Sylvester EYE TO EYE. Granted Sylvester is slouching a bit in the photo but nowhere near enough to substantiate a 5'9 peak.

Now in these same photos that were searched you will see a modern pic of Sly , Duran, and Shane Mosley a 5'8 former world champion. In this photo sly has close to a FULL HEAD TALLER then the 5'8 Mosley and the 5'6ish Duran he once was a few cms from being EYE TO EYE WITH. His lifts in this picture have to be close to 4-5 inches.

This difference in the two photos is Absurd and CANNOT go unseen. They completely squash a 5'9 peak and need to be posted here

When folks say a picture says a thousand words with these two pics it's an understatement and a nail in the coffin to Slys height being at or above 5'9 peak

Rob. What is your take on these photos? Please will other posters comment on these pics I have found Again This is the case cracker in the argument
Height182 says on 16/Dec/14
So Rob, You really think Slys only lost 1cm?
[Editor Rob: half inch yes. For a man in his 60's he still did a helluva lot of intensive work last 6-7 years, I think within next 2-3 years we might be seeing a sly who will start to look barely even 5ft 8.]
Arthur says on 15/Dec/14
Sly is about the same as 5ft8.5 Graham norton. Graham norton is 5ft8.5.
So as I said before
1.74.5 cm peak
1.73 now
for stallone
Parker says on 15/Dec/14
@Danimal - A good example why opinions differ so much on this site. To me,Stallone looks taller in that video. I don't know if Stallone is packing lifts granted.
Frankie68 says on 14/Dec/14
@daninal...been telling u that...hes 5'7
mightyman says on 14/Dec/14
Yep he's more than 5'8 with lifts
Danimal says on 14/Dec/14
Here we have Stallone THIS year in a video with 5'8" Graham Norton (talk show host). NO WAY is Stallone taller than him, let alone even the same height as him. They stand right next to each other at 13:00 and I'm sure Stallone came packing that day too (never leaves home without them). In other words, Stallone is UNDER 5'8": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aU_1ZgiiDkI
Recovered Data says on 12/Dec/14

Heylo says on 9/Dec/14


The tallest he could have been in his peak is 175cm IMO so I think Rob's estimate is fair. Today he looks between 5'8 & 5'9 barefoot. About 5'11 in elevator shoes in his peak.



Uh-Oh says on 8/Dec/14


I think it's safe to say that 5'7" (170cm) and 5'10" (178cm) are ruled out. Anything above or below this is more than likely false.

Arthur says on 7/Dec/14


I am not saying Sly is 5ft10.But what I am saying is he was definetly close to

5ft9 in his prime.



ritchie says on 7/Dec/14


With lifts Stallone appears 5'10"/11", i would suspect around 5'9" minus footwear. The only movie where he didn't use his trademark lifts was Copland and appeared on or around the same height as DeNiro and slightly taller than Kietel, Liotta had roughly 3 inches on him so 5'9" without shoes would be fairly accurate.

Arthur says on 7/Dec/14


Danimal@ Our guesses is close, so I dont have any problem with you.The main

problem is some people claiming he was 5ft7 in his peak or some claims he is

5ft10. This is the main problem.



Frankie68 says on 6/Dec/14


@danimal...I don't no how to load pics to this site....there are plenty of pics out there that prove my point....it's not only my opinion ,,it's simple math....that man wore freakin "platforms" when he was with Nielsen ....like in cobra....still to be much shorter....to me it's just idiotic to state he's 5'9 or 5'10 in his famous lifts....and than say he's 5'9 flat footed .....but that's just my opinion.....btw....bet your life he's shorter than deniro.....sly changes his height so much,,,he doesn't no how tall he is....lol

Danimal says on 6/Dec/14

He looks way taller than 5ft9 with his elevator shoes.Both 5ft7 and 5ft10 are garbage. Frankie68 I guees you cant find enough photos.A 5ft7 man never look same as arnold even with lifts. So I think you are 5ft7 and want Sly to same as

you.But that will never work.



174.5 CM peak

173 CM now END OF THE STORY!



End of story because YOU said so? Not the way it works. Imo (yes, its just an OPINION), I believe he was 173-174cm at his peak and is 171-172cm today.



Jesse Stone says on 6/Dec/14


These custom shoes are probably givig him at least 3 inches. Click Here

[Editor Rob: I don't think they are custom, but just Adidas Megabounce sneakers.]


bernie says on 5/Dec/14


@ The shredder: ...6 '0 or just over in lifts for Sly.. wow this man is growing & growing taller...! Watch Rambo I, compared to David Caruso, who is in the 5'11"-5'11.5" range, S. Stallone looks about min. 1.5 inches shorter than him, although he's in his wedged up Rambo custom boots, which min. give 2-2.5 inches... I really highly doubt he was much over 5'8" at his peak...sorry, it's mathematically not possible...



Frankie68 says on 5/Dec/14


@jesse stone...finally ...someone who "gets it"....his shoes are laughable....perfect pics bro....if he took off those "cloud hoppers" ....he be 3ft tall.....lol

Danimal says on 5/Dec/14


Realist says on 3/Dec/14

Ok about Mr.Rocky, my inspiration. He ain't under 5'8 peak. Rob u can list him at 5'8.75 if u can have a man like Tony Curtis (who i feel was no more than 172 peak) at 175 (5'8.75). 5'9 is fair. Maybe 5'8.75 but today i wouldn't give him more than 5'8. He is about 5'7.75 or 5'7.5 today IMO. Lifts have improved too guys since the 1970s remember that everyone, these guys are millionaires they get the best possible shoes ever.



So peak 174-75

Today 172-73 about 1-2 cm height loss at 68 years of age. Not much at all and the muscle in tact.



5'7 flat comments are doubtful but 5'7 and change (today) can still be thought of. 5'9.5-10 is absolute rubbish. He is probably 177-78 in those shoes today. 5'7 peak is also rubbish.



I agree. He was max 5'8.5" peak height and today at almost 70, he's 5'7.5".



burby says on 5/Dec/14


Zito looks like he's ready to do a Mob movie.

Arthur says on 5/Dec/14


Frankie68 Sly isnt 5ft7. 5ft7 is an absoulute rubbish. 5ft10 is also a rubbish.

I said millions of time Sly is beetween 5ft8 to 5ft9.We will never believe 5ft7

or 5ft10.Sly will be 5ft7 when he is 85 years old.



174.5cm peak

173 cm now



ritchie says on 5/Dec/14


Stallone's height varies all the time, in Copland he was about the same height as DeNiro and 6'Liotta had nearly 3 inches on him, yet in the recent GrudgeMatch he had a clear 2 inches on DeNiro???

The shredder says on 5/Dec/14


For him to reach a 5'11 look he has to measure 6 ft in his lifts ... Your just dumb bro ..period ...



Frankie68 says on 5/Dec/14


@the shredder.....now he's 6' or over...no offense...but your just dumb bro..period...

Frankie , he can look legit 5 '11 in the past , meaning he would measure 6 '0 or just over in lifts , Look at him with Denzel and Hulk Hogan from about 10 years ago.

bernie says on 3/Dec/14


@Frankie68: ...your life? that would be pretty much... you seem to forget to consider that Mr. MJKoP saw Mr. Stallone for a few hours in person & barefeet and is totally convinced he's about 5'10" - 5'10.75" for sure...!

I'd not bet my life, but much, much money that he's more like 5'7.75"... no more than that! :-))

Rob can this be an example of low eyelevel ? Click Here

[Editor Rob: maybe his is in 4.8-4.9 range. I wouldn't compare heads here because there is camera distortion at times from this photographer, just looks at lars/gwendoline for similar effect.]


Frankie68 says on 3/Dec/14


I dont want to be insulting but some of u really deserve it....some of u constantly say hes 5'9 or 5'10 with lifts on...and than say hes 5'9 barefoot...smh...mathematically it is impossible...please people ...watch grudge match...hes got wedges in his boxing shoes to appear slightly taller than deniro whos 5'8....u take slys boxing shoes off...i bet my life hes shorter than deniro



Frankie68 says on 3/Dec/14


@arthur...sly doesnt appear WAY taller than 5'9 or 5'10...whats WAY taller mean anyway...are u saying hes over 6 foot...cause he not ...theres no way hes over 5'7 barefoot if hes 5'9 or so in his lifts...so arthur u dont no what your talking about

Arthur says on 2/Dec/14


Rob can you post a photo of a man with low eyelevel (big skull).And what do you think of your eyelevel ? İs it normal for your height ?For example G has a high eyelevel so he appears taller than actually is.

[Editor Rob: there's studies been done on this and the average is pretty much around 4.5 for a man, with 4.1-4.2 being a high eyelevel and 5-5.1 being a low eyelevel.]




Arthur says on 2/Dec/14


Frankie68@ Nobody is saying sly is 5'2...but he does wear monster shoes to appear 5"9 or slightly taller...so how can he be 5'8 without shoes on...it's not rocket science....



FRANK sly appears way taller than 5ft9 in his elevator shoes.So I think he is between 5ft8to5ft9 barefoot. I think today 1.73cm range ok for him.But in his prime he is definetly in 1.74cm to 1.75 cm range ! I am not saying SLY is 5ft10.

And he never been 5ft10 barefoot in his life. Most he can be barefoot in his prime is 1.75 cm.

Dmeyer says on 1/Dec/14


Up i see Max 0.2in more shoes for sly and frank aint léss than 5'10 sly looks almost as tall



176,2Tunman says on 1/Dec/14


So Jenny was able to reach 5'9.1 on a wall?that's interesting to know,the thing is that she measured slightly shorter than you at peak,possibly 5'8 or 5'8 1/8 but you agree it's very rare to lose such amount of height when she's only 5'8 and her upper body doesn't look tall neither.

[Editor Rob: on the stadiometer yes, just over 5ft 9 was her best ever, under ideal conditions (8-9 hours with 1 pillow) a few years ago. Her daily shrinkage was nearer to the full inch than mine, which typically is around 0.6 inches or 0.7 at most.]

5ft8.75 prime

5ft8 now.

@Kipster007: That sounds really interesting! You say Mr. Stallone came into the store. So he had shoes on, right? And your girlfriend is at best 5'8 in her boots, or barefoot?

While visting California in 1991, my girlfriend and I were leaving a ridiculously expensive leather goods store on Rodeo drive and she bumped into Sylvester Stallone who was entering the store with some other people following him. I witnessed my girlfriend face to face and only inches apart. I was shocked that he was no a taller than she was in her boots, (at best 5'8" and more probably 5'7". I must say though that he was a perfect gentleman and apologize moor bumping into her. it was the highlight of her trip to Beverly Hills!

Joe says on 29/Nov/14


Stallone has repeatedly claimed that he was 5'11" during his early years, when Rocky and Rambo came out, obviously he wanted to give people the image that he is a big guy. In Hollywood at the time, most credible action heroes were over 6 feet tall such as Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery. He really was never taller than 5'7" in his prime. He always wears lifts in his films to appear taller. Its always interesting that in photos of him with Arnold Schwarzenegger who is now 5'11" because of aging, that in some photos he is a lot shorter than Arnie and in others maybe an inch off.

bernie says on 29/Nov/14


@MJKoP:

you said: All of the actors you listed are over 5'9". Classic downgrading of other celebs to fit your agenda. I know what I saw all those years ago, Stallone is easily over 5'10" naturally. And no, none of us were wearing any sort of lifts or heels. Stallone had on waterproof swimming shoes(flip-flops basically) where you could see the entire back portion of his foot. If anything, my brother and I were getting more "assistance" than Stallone because we were both wearing old sneakers. This 'Sly is 5'7" to 5'9"' insanity needs to stop.



Don't know why you're holding on so strong & desperately to this 5'10" + claim..??? Anyway, but at least you sound very confident, but maybe you were a victim of deception..!?

Saw pics that show....:

A.Banderas: ca. 1 inch taller than danny trejo (ca. 5'6")

Van Damme: max. 2 inches taller than Bolo yeung (ca. 5'6")

J.Statham: ca. 2 inches taller than Jet li (ca. 5'5.5")

W.Snipes: looks constantly a good inch shorter than W. Harrelson (ca. 5'9")

So how can you say all these actors are over 5'9"?? Maybe classic upgrade to fit YOUR agenda? They're all max. 5'8" , and that's what Mr. Stallone also is, even closer to a tad below, which brings him in the 5'7.75" area.



Chaz says on 27/Nov/14

he's mum,and both ex wifes say he was 5'8'' and if he was 5'10'' no one would be calling him short,no 5'10'' man could be called short.



@MJKoP: Why are his mum & ex-wifes saying that? And absolutely correct: No One would call him short, if he was 5'10"+, definately!



For example, Vin Diesel is about that height you claim for Sly, 5'10"-5'10.75"!

SO is he short or called short??? I guess NO...!!



Jesse Stone says on 29/Nov/14


If 5‘10 1/2 barefoot would be true, how tall would he be in those shoes? And wouldn't he be much more taller than Arnie then...? So forget ab out it instantly! Click Here

A friend of mine whose around 1.74-1.75 cm said me years ago he met stallone in

four seasons resort hualalai kaupulehu hotel years ago and greeted him.He says Sly

was around 1.75 (5ft9) around that time which is in 1990's.I dont know how true is this story but that friend of mine measured a solid 1.74 in front of me.



Why would your friend be measured in front of you?

Sly has fantasized about being 5'10 and three quarters in his barefeet..

@MJKoP



HI again from Arnie's page...Dude why are you upgrading everyone? Im sorry but i dont believe your eyewitness account. But i got to admit you are consistent, 5'10 Stallone and your 6'2 + peak Arnold. Reality though was a 6'1 Arnold and a 5'9 tops Stallone. Go look at Celebs Rob has photos with like Carl Weathers for example, since he acted with both guys and tell me that Stallone was over 5'10 or that Arnie was 6'2 +

Brad says on 27/Nov/14


MJK must be part of G World. Sly & Telly were heeled up in '75. The NYC sandals with young G were his best lifts.



Realist says on 26/Nov/14


I am slowly becoming a lift wearer, i feel good. It adds about 2.25 inches or strong 2 inches and takes me from 171-72 to 176-77 sometimes 78, it makes all the difference. I feel much more average(in fact above average in India). Was talking to some of my buddies about Gym-ing. One guy wants to play basketball at 18 to grow taller, told him only like a 5 per cent chance you'd grow an inch. The three guys were in the 5'5-5'6 range and all claimed 5'9. I said how is that possible i am b/w 5'7-5'8. They said r u an idiot u r more like 5'11 (when i had lifts). I gave up, its only people like Dmeyer, Rob, Arch and others who can observe exact. The lift has made my 5'7.5 claim a bit more stronger. I can easily claim 5'8 now confidently, lifts can increase the weight on ur actual height. What i mean is u can round of more easily to the closest whole number.

[Editor Rob: If it helps you then it is a good thing. There are folk who gain a bit of confidence from wearing them.



There will be those who raise an eyebrow, think it's silly (do they say the same about women with big shoes?). But if I chose to wear them myself I wouldn't give a damn what anybody thought, if it made me feel better I'd keep wearing them...]


Arthur says on 26/Nov/14

fantasy world then continue!

"Sly could be in lifts POSSIBLY." Lol, the guy literally can't take a pee in the middle of the night without tottering to the washroom without his sacred lifts.

@MJKoP: :-) as i expected... i knew there won't be an answer/ reason to why he is NOT taller than W. Snipes, J. Statham, A. Banderas, J.C. Van Damme, etc. .. all in the 5'8"/ 173cm area??

The pic above... shorter than his 5'10" brother, although hes in packed up shoes, which is pretty obvious... How for God's sake can he be 5'10"-5'10.75" barefeet.? LOL

I wrote it many times, and i love to repeat it a thousand times more: ca. 5'7.75" for Mr. Stallone barefeet nowadays, and ca. 5'8" at his prime!





All of the actors you listed are over 5'9". Classic downgrading of other celebs to fit your agenda. I know what I saw all those years ago, Stallone is easily over 5'10" naturally. And no, none of us were wearing any sort of lifts or heels. Stallone had on waterproof swimming shoes(flip-flops basically) where you could see the entire back portion of his foot. If anything, my brother and I were getting more "assistance" than Stallone because we were both wearing old sneakers. This 'Sly is 5'7" to 5'9"' insanity needs to stop.

Arthur says on 25/Nov/14


Brad I agree with you Sly even has lifts in slippers.Here's slys newer technique to look taller!Click Here

[Editor Rob:



What next, flesh coloured foot lifts?

Brad says on 24/Nov/14


King Arthur, you friend missed the 1/2" built up flip-flop wedge.

Junior31 says on 24/Nov/14


Looked an inch shorter then Arnold at the pacman fight this past weekend. I think he's over the 4 inch minsters these days but going with 2 to 3 max lifts. We all know Arnold is a weak 5'11 these days so sky at 5'8 with his lefts is about right.



Arthur says on 24/Nov/14


A friend of mine whose around 1.74-1.75 cm said me years ago he met stallone in

four seasons resort hualalai kaupulehu hotel years ago and greeted him.He says Sly

was around 1.75 (5ft9) around that time which is in 1990's.I dont know how true is this story but that friend of mine measured a solid 1.74 in front of me.

Brad says on 24/Nov/14


His postman gave him an early christmas package. Bern bud, ya shoulda been here in '06, the 5 feet 10 army was everywhere, however; they were defeated. Hey G, how tall is Mead Chasky? Go to the Anthony signin' for the Peppahs book?



Jordan says on 23/Nov/14


well with pacquiao he looks around 177 cm , could be lifts possibly?

Frankie68 says on 22/Nov/14


Yeah ok shredder....then...after he got fame by rocky 2 ,,,,his boots got bigger and was like 4inches taller than paulie....your seeing things...like u want him taller ......are u telling me he was taller than paulie .....I suppose he was taller than him by the meat house too...when paulie wanted the news to see him hit the meat.....go back to bed

richie says on 19/Nov/14


Schwarzenegger is more than 5'11", he was about the same height as Johnny Knoxville who is a good 6' and Arnie is no lift wearer



Joe says on 18/Nov/14


During the peak of his career Stallone once claimed he was 5'11", and his Rocky character was apparently that height. I do not believe he was ever 5-11 nor 5-10, he was not even 5-9. Most people who have met him estimate his height as 5-7. Stallone made his fortune from action movies, obviously there is bias against smaller men playing action heroes, so while he was in his Rambo and Rocky days he claimed to be 5'11" when he was nowhere near that height.

He always seems to wear lifts, in recent public appearances he appears to be only an inch shorter than Arnold Schwarzenegger who is now 5'11" due to aging. I am certain he was wearing lifts in those pictures.

Arthur says on 17/Nov/14


Rob do these ones look 3.8 inch style? Click Here

They are smaller at the front like you are talking about.

[Editor Rob: yes they are getting closer to the 3.5 inch range, you can see the shorter front of them because it will be a higher angle. I'd say 3.25-3.5 range is the actual amount those boots might give.]




Jesse Stone says on 17/Nov/14


Well is it possible that the shoes Sly's wearing in the picture above with his brother Frank are those:Click Here



A good elevator shoe brand, how it appears to me. They're giving 7 cm.

[Editor Rob: they measure the height at the highest point of the back of the insert so I'd think it would probably give about 6cm. These are the kind of shoes an actor could wear and not be too obvious to general public.]


richie says on 17/Nov/14


Stallone's height always appears different, in Copland he appeared about the same height as DeNiro and had about 2 inches on 5'7" Kietel, yet when seen in the recent movie Grudgematch, he towers DeNiro by nearly 3 inches, Mmmm....Ray Liotta had a good 3 inches on him in Copland which confirms a weak 5'9" minus the lifts



Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Nov/14


Click Here

Click Here



Like this you mean, Rob?

[Editor Rob: they're not high enough, the angle to get near 4 inches is huge, you have to make the boot smaller to accomodate the harsh angle (which basically reduces your foot length). If you see Tom with a small shoe at the front it would be massive elevators.]


Dmeyer says on 16/Nov/14


Rob whi Guys Like sly and cruise dont wear the 3.8in shoes , cruise Will look 5'10.5 range and sly near 6ft

[Editor Rob: very hard to walk in those shoes, even with practice they are very obvious. The angle is very sharp, I've never seen Cruise in anything that looks too obvious...and to get over 3 inches it becomes very obvious.]




Dmeyer says on 16/Nov/14

he was at least 3.5 shorter than liotta and i don't understand why so many believe liotta is 6'0. he didn't look it with kevin costner.

177cmGuy says on 15/Nov/14


If sly was was 5'10.75 he would claim 5'11 but yeah rob's listing looks right with 5'9 being his median range height although he did look 177cm at certain times when he was young.



1.89m says on 15/Nov/14


Hulk Hogan said he was 5-7 approx while filming rocky 3,so hes about 5-7/8 approx is a max height imo.

Brad says on 13/Nov/14


Don't recall Danimal and the never seen 5' 9" line back in the G Years. He'd be target of the heapin' helpin' of Bronx yelpin'. 5' 8.5" peak, 5' 8" now, hasn't lost much.

Arthur says on 13/Nov/14


Danimal@ Dont make reasons to make Sly's height whatever you want!My pictures is enough!You will never find perfect pictures in hollywood industry and I dont agree

with you.Sly easily been close to 5ft9 like 5ft8.75 in his peak.

Like I said beferoe 5ft10 and 5ft7 are garbage. Sly is beetween 5ft8 to 5ft9 in most of his life.Anything below or over is garbage fact.

My guess for him is like in the above:

5FT8.75 PEAK

5FT8-5FT8.5 NOW



richie says on 13/Nov/14


Watch the opening scene in Copland where Stallone is minus any liftwear, Liotta who is just 6' had a good 3 inches on him, based on that a weak 5'9" is the best height you could give him minus any lifts

Dmeyer says on 13/Nov/14


Rob can you show us a picture were he look exactly 5'8.5/174 Like abit under 5'9 but over 5'8



Danimal says on 12/Nov/14

How can you say 5'10"-5'10.75" bare foot, when you take a look at the pics Arthur has posted? Especially the one between Liotta (5'11.5") & Butler (6'1")?

So does a 5'10"-5'10.75" look between them both???? Is this your dead earnest?

You don't really believe this statement by yourself, don't you..? Sorry...

[Editor Rob: at peak, her best out of bed on stadiometer was arond 5ft 9.2, but I checked her out of bed a few months back and was around 5ft 8.7. She still shrinks near the full inch as she dips under 5ft 8 on the stadiometer.]

He could be 5'8 or 5'9. Neither would surprise me



In shoes, definitely. Barefoot, he's about 5'7.5" today.





You are so far from the truth, that it's both funny and sad. I spent an extended period of time in his presence when his bare feet were visible(aqua shoes) and I know the truth. In 1979, he was taller than my brother - who still to this day is just slightly over 5'10". That puts Stallone in his prime(if he had one) at every bit of the 5'10.75" figure he gave the year before, most likely hitting 5'11" at some point early in the day.



And from studying pictures of him in the recent years, I'm convinced that his shrinkage is quite minimal if even existent.



Some tough-guy-wannabes just can't handle that Sly was -and is- a rock solid average height. I guess the great and mighty Rambo being a runt in "reality" just makes for a better fable. I barely surpass five foot eight and I would love it if he were only my size. But after a lengthy encounter many years ago, that is clearly not the case







Let me ask this. Were you guys wearing shoes? If so yes. He was that height however maybe you don't know that he wears lifts, wedges, and boots to get to that height. Please look at his foot wear. And look at him barefoot when he doesn't have his boots and lifts. It's unbelievable

Mjkop: you are lying or terribel judge of height. You're not the only one who met him either and he was NEVER over 5'9". Ever.



Darren510 says on 10/Nov/14


In rambo he looked every inch of 5'11. In Rocky he looked it to boxing with Carl weathers. Even in the last rocky he looked no more than 3inches shorter than Antonio tarver who is 6'2ish, but the fact is the man is know to wears lifts. I don't believe he wore elevators while in a boxing ring, that notion is just absurd. Strong 5'9 peak with slightly enhanced footwear gave off a 5'11 illusion. Now he is probably 5'8.5-5'9 and usually looks a strong 5'10 in shoes and sometimes about 5'11. Its highly unlikely he is or ever was 5'11 barefoot

bernie says on 10/Nov/14


@MJKoP: I know there won't be an useful answer, but here is the question anyway:

Sly at 5'10.75"? Barefeet?? Ok.., So why then is he NOT taller than W. Snipes, J. Statham, A. Banderas, J.C. Van Damme, etc. .. all in the 5'8"/ 173cm area??

What are you others thinking about that?

bernie says on 10/Nov/14


@MJKoP: Many voices say de Niro is in the 172cm range! Stallone in Grudge match is pretty equal in height, both in boxing shoes. So that means, this 5'7.5" listing for de niro is bull**it, and de niro is also 5'10"-5'11" bare feet!? Am i right?



184.3cm says on 10/Nov/14


I think he would still be a solid 5'8 (173 cm)even today. I have noticed recently people laughing at cowboyboots / cuban heels. That was the fashion back in the 70's/80's not everyone who wore them had height issues or had lifts inserted. i have a pair myself and it was more for the look itself than any need for height.

I haven't seen the recent video. I still believe dearest Sookie is 5 ft 8!! Always 5 ft 8!! Did Rob pour some of that bottled G juice into her bowl or something account for the shrinkage? Or did he take her out onto one of the lochs up there and she got sprayed with insecticides hehe?

Tony says on 1/Nov/14


Stallone is famous for wearing lifts, its hard to tell how tall he is because of this fact. You can only get an idea of their real height barefoot. A friend of mine who met Stallone near a pool wear he was barefoot claimed that Stallone was only 5'7". Stallone has upgraded his height several inches, I recall he claimed that he was 5-11 during the 1980s when his Rambo and Rocky films were raking in millions of dollars.

Even Arnold the other big action hero, has claimed he is 6'2" when evidence really shows he was 6 foot even at most, and maybe even 5-11.

Stallone's true height is probably 5'7 and not more. Arnie was probably 6' in his prime.

Sly is tricky, that's for certain. I have wAtched almost all his movies and he usually comes across 5'11 or even 6ft at times.. In public or premiers, and with other actors he usually looks 5"10-511 range.The question is how much height does he get from his shoes? I personally think he is about 5'9.

Icehole says on 28/Oct/14


At 5'7" I've worn internal lifts but not elevator shoes. It's not so much that height bothers you but it does give you more confidence when you can look a person in the eye. Lifts with boots gives me just under 2 inches and my wrestling boots give me 3 plus. Also remember womens heels are now built under the toe give them even more height. Why have a problem with it? With face lifts, fake boobs and all the plastic surgery women get, putting a piece of foam in your boots isn't the biggest deal. Hollywood is smoke and mirrors, not reality. If the top of a persons shoe is at a 45 degree angle, they probably have an internal lift.

In the new photos of him & De Niro, he looks only 5'10 next to 5'8 De niro and Sly clearly has lifts on. He must be 172-173cm today, just like De Niro.

Danimal: I don't agree with you about Stallone's height though. If he really was 177cm in his prime, he would have looked taller since he also used lifts. Being almost 5'10 & using lifts can make someone look close to 6ft, i don't think he looks 6ft with lifts.



Heylo says on 24/Oct/14


I always thought he looked like a typical 5'9 guy in his prime. He always looked around average but 5'9 is still widely perceived as a mediocre height in Hollywood so it's no surprise that some people wanna call him short. I wouldn't call him short but he is pretty close to the mark of being short.

@FanRocky: Sly at 177cm? Barefeet?? Wow.. So why then is he not taller than W. Snipes, J. Staham, A. Banderas, J.C. Van Damme, etc. .. all in the 5'8"/ 173cm area?? ...and is pretty similar to 5'75" R. De Niro in grudge match (both in boxing shoes) You have an useful answer?

Lets be real here , why would a legit 5'10.75 guy not claim 5'11 and go down with his claim saying 5'10 and 5'10 1/2? That is what is crazy about his " 5'10.75 claim , Sly should just claim 5'11 , I mean he can pull it off . lol really , the guy is lying his butt off but on the other hand 5' 7 nowor peak is backwards , he was 200 lbs in Rocky 2 , at 5 '7 he would have look oddly stocky and being buffed up at that weight on that height would have made him look even shorter.

Justin bieber: 1.72 cm





This is 100% the true height of celeb's



First of all, nothing is 100% true, unless you personally measured them every day until your measurements had some reliability to them, which in turn would render them valid and back up your claim to an 5% margin of error. BTW, Tom Cruise is max 169.5cm

oke he looks maybe shorter dan him real height, but i´m sure he is about 1.77cm

i have watch all him movie´s example rocky and he looks more than 1.75cm maybe him bodyframe make him shorter example tom cruise low shoulders and long neck. Sylvester stallone have that same bodyframe. so he is absoluty about 1.77cm



Whatever makes you happy. If you want to believe he's almost 5'10", then believe it!

Downey jr and sly are brothers in Napoleon complex



Both roughly same height and both rock 2 to 4 inch elevator shoes/lifts religiously.



Arguing .25 inches here and there is ridiculous. As said in the past the guy barefoot is between 5'8 and 5'9 period and of story. I happen to think today closer to 5'8





It must be embarrassing to be around the same ppl on the regular as sly is and vary in height so severely. You'd think he'd find a happy median In a week you might see three different heights Absurd is what it is

Here we have another friend of ours, Mr Robert Downey Jr, who is also trying to Master the art of Height. Click Here



Here in this picture, you see that he has rolled his trousers up. The point of this is to show all of us that he doesn't wear any lifts and he isn't hiding anything.



If you zoom in, you can see his ankle is supposed to go all the way down inside of that shoe. Instead, his ankle area is weirdly sticking out. Maybe he has shoved bricks inside his shoe? who knows.. All I know is he is no Sly!



Mr Downey maybe no Sly, but still as a 5'8'' man he can also grow to around 6'0''! Here he is with 6'0.5'' listed John Cena Click Here Click Here Click Here



Downey has also won my respect!

Arthur says on 20/Oct/14


Thoese who are saying Sly was 5ft10 or Sly is 5ft7 are ridicilous!

Arthur says on 20/Oct/14

Hello guys. I think this little picture is interesting because Stallone does not have footwear advantage. Click Here

It is from the 1981 film Escape to Victory. As we can see, Stallone and the players are in studded soccer boots so no player pictured has a lift advantage or disadvantage. We have 169cm Ozzie Ardiles far left next to stallone, and 172cm Pele to the right of Stallone. We can dismiss Pele because he is heading the ball. But On the far right is Bobby Moore who was between 178cm-180cm depending on sources you read, standing next to 185-186cm Michael Cain. We can estimate Stallone noticebly taller than Ardiles but shorter than 178-180cm Moore by some 4 to 5cm I would say. This puts Stallone at about 175cm for his peak, which he does look next to 169cm Ardiles.
