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."

They did also intentionally film it so that Hogan looked like a giant in Rocky III, Frankie. He was supposed to be 7ft or so wasn't he? Of course, despite the intention being to make Hogan look as big as possible, you have to conclude that Sly was also in "loaded boxing shoes" for some reason. Makes no sense at all. If they had wanted Sly to look taller next to Hogan, they would have done so.
Dmeyer says on 27/Apr/15
Sly at peak managed to look 5'10-11 with none monstruouss footwear Anywere 1.5-2.5in not 3-4in range so was defenetly about 5'9
Dmeyer says on 27/Apr/15
Its Crazy how sly can look barely 2-3in shorter than 6'3-3.5 7-10 years back with sly head to feet both in good posture and sly dosnt have monsters at all they look Like regular hogan that give 1.4 to 1.6in so barely 0.5-0.7in more shoes and slightly closer to caméra the foot pose dosnt indicate lifts inside the shoe
Frankie68 says on 27/Apr/15
If u wikapedia manny pacquio ...his officially listed height is 5'6 1/2......not even 5'7.....so sly looking 1 or 2 inches taller on shoe lifts is really funny. Or even 3 inches taller is still a joke for a 5'8 or 5'9 flat claim...

"The wax figure portraying Stallone as Rocky Balboa at the now defunct Movieland Wax Museum (Buena Park, California) was 5' 7" tall, but each night a masked figure would secretly enter the building armed with a pair of elevator shoes to make the figure appear 5ft 10 to an unsuspecting public."

Slys under 5'8 flatfooted ..thats my opinion from all ive seen from him...and thats why hes known gor being " short" in hollywood ...if he was 5'9 or 5'10 flat ..nobody would care ...And he also wouldnt wear monster shoes in his movies or in real life...u look at pics of him in rocky 3 next to hulk hogan and he looks like a midget ...( and thats with help from loaded boxing shoes)...and than theres pics of him & hogan that contradict that...theres an sNL video from 1998 or 97 were sly looks very short with will farrel ...
richie says on 23/Apr/15
Stallone's height seems to be all over the place, definately an indication that the man wears lifts. In Grudgematch he appeared a strong 5'11" and had a good 2 inches on DeNiro, yet in Copland Ray Liotta who is just 6' had a good 3 inches on him????In that movie Stallone appeared about the same height as DeNiro and had 2 inches on Harvey Kietel who is 5'7". I would suspect him to be around 5'9" barefoot as being fairly accurate.....
Brad says on 23/Apr/15
Arthur can load up the G garbage in the Bronx someplace.
Jesse Stone says on 23/Apr/15
Rob, how do you judge the height in this photo? We can see that Flavin is leaning, Sly is standing as straight as he can. Still his wife seems a little bit taller. If she would stand as straight as she could... Click Here

What do you say? 5'8? Or more, maybe less?
[Editor Rob: it's tougher to say when she might lose a bit of height]
TJ says on 23/Apr/15
Read more closely Frankie68. I did not say that Sly is known for being in the 6ft range. I said that "Sly has been known to pull off 6'0 or so in his biggest shoes". That is a fact. He was doing so more often a few years ago when he was presumably wearing his most ludicrous shoes. There were times when he was improbably tall next to the likes of Hulk Hogan and Dolph Lundgren. Bearing in mind that Hogan is obviously not barefoot and so you have to add an inch or so to his height too, just what height do you think Sly was pulling off here?
Click Here

Sure wasn't 5'10. Of course he is not 6ft in normal shoes and certainly not barefoot, but no 5'7 man looks the height that Sly can pull off sometimes. And that is the point - "sometimes". He is not always wearing his biggest shoes, but in your world he is and that means that you frequently downgrade him. As for the pic with Pacquiao, the height difference is only as small as an inch or so when Sly is leaning/sat. Otherwise it's nearer 4 inches. Here's another pic with Chris Algieri, who is presumably in the 5'11 max range here with his boxing boots on. Against Algieri and Arnie (who also has shoes on of course), it's hard to see Sly at less than 5'11 with his shoes on. Yes, he'll certainly have flattering footwear on, but I think it's reasonable to assume he isn't getting much more than a couple of inches actual height boost, so Rob's estimate is good. 5'7 is simply too low. And if you doubt Algieri's height, here he is against Pacquiao:

Frankie68 says on 21/Apr/15
TJ....u put alot of effort in addressing my opinion on here !!!
Frankie68 says on 21/Apr/15
And please note,,,pacquio is a very small man in stature,,and to be an inch or 2 taller than pacquio on shoe lifts ,,doesnt say much for slys size.....thats something that glaring obvious !!!
Frankie68 says on 21/Apr/15
And furthermore TJ ,,,your claim as sly being "known " for being in the 6' range is beyond funny & beyond anything that u claim i said that was foolish...
Frankie68 says on 21/Apr/15
Tj,,the only thing your doing here is proving my point...the only fair pic u showd was sly next to pacqiio..were there were very similiar in height ...plus the fact that pacquio is in flat ass boxing shoes and sly in lifts of some kind (to put it mildly)...as for the 5'10 pic of pacquios oppent ...(side angle shot) enhances height ..plus i never said he wasnt in that 5'9 to 5'10 range with lifts on anyway ...so thanks for proving my point ..cause sly would be much shorter than pacquios oppent if he wasnt in magic shoes...but thanks again for pointing out the obvious...
GP says on 21/Apr/15
Any photo that you can't see Sly's shoes, it's a bad photo knowing that all the time in any publicized photo Sly is going to have lifts, who knows how big. For the people who really want to estimate on Sly's height go watch movie Lock Up back in 80's he did with Tom Sizemore. Now Rob has a photo with Tom and he is 5'10". If you watch the movie, you will see that Tom was clearly taller than Sly and Sly had shoe advantage.

Frankie68 said "For the record also...theres a pic of sly on the internet with pacquio (5'7) sly looks the same height ..."

Which you accepted without looking into it further because you really want him to be 5'7. OK, so here's the pic you are probably referring to:

And this is the reason that they look a similar height - Sly is sat:

And this is the height difference that was seen when the pair were actually standing next to each other:

No Frankie, the problem is your ludicrous assertion that Sly is always in 4.5 inch lifts when that is clearly nonsense. There is a reason that almost no one else agrees with you and it's not that you are the only one speaking the truth. It's always pretty obvious when he is in his really flattering shoes because he suddenly looks improbably tall compared to what we are used to and by that I do not mean 5'10. Are you actually forgetting that other celebs are also in shoes? I've seen pics of one of his encounters with Joe Calzaghe where Sly looks pretty much the same height. Rob has Joe at 6ft, so that would probably be 6'1 in shoes. If Rob is being generous and Joe is a little shorter, he's probably still 6'0.5 or so in shoes. In other words, Sly has been known to pull off 6'0 or so in his biggest shoes, not just 5'10. When he walks around at 5'10, it's with far less assistance from the footwear. Sly is also consistently only 5 inches or so shorter than Lundgren, who must be in the 6'4.5 range in shoes. So please drop the 5'10 max nonsense and the idea that he is always in 4.5 inch lifts. Neither are true.

Among the most elusive height on this site.. wouldn't surprise me if he measured 175 or 172 based on various pictures: Height fluctuates ridiculously... which suggests only 1 things - lifts.
Frankie68 says on 18/Apr/15
For the record also...theres a pics of sly on the internet with pacquio (5'7) sly looks the same height ...
Frankue68 says on 17/Apr/15
Alot of opinions on this site refer to sly in 2.5 inch lifts!!!and he achieves 5'10 or so...the problem with that is ,,,hes never in 2.5 in lifts ...much more like 4.5 or more aka rocky 5 boots (ridiculous) cobra ,,over the top ,,,lock up,,,and so on,,,and theres no disputing that fact,, furthermore ,,if these massive boots (etc) allow him to hit the mark of 5'10 or so...how could he be 5'8 or 5'9 flat...its mathematically impossible!!!hes under 5'8 ...thats y hollywood claims hes "short" ...cause hes on hollywood movie sets with these giant ass shoes (boots) on...and im sure people in hollywood have seen him shoeless and noticed the massive size disparity......these height rumors about him started from something....im very sure people arent calling him short if hes truly not !!!!

@MJKoP - i've tried this 5'11" barefoot, really, and i have to admit that i have failed unfortunately... Why? Here we go: No taller than W. Snipes, no taller than J. Staham, no taller than J.C. van Damme, no taller than A.Banderas, no taller than M.Gibson etc. All men are in the 5'8"-max. 5'9" range..or do you think all these men are 6' & more..??; in some pics even up to 3 inches shorter than 5'11"/ 6" A. Schwarzenegger...see the pic "Sly with brother Frank" above..altough tip-toeing in his shoes, which is more than obvious, hes no taller than his 5'10" brother...
i'd say even a tad shorter... let's continue...
lelman says on 16/Apr/15
It honestly boggles the mind how he get's described as short so often by people. It makes me seriously doubt that he was 5'9" in his youth. Almost everyone claims he is 5'7", and yet he very rarely looks that short. I really don't get it, this guy is an enigma.
mande2013 says on 16/Apr/15
As for the comments from Sly's former girlfriends, women I notice often have a tendency to assume men are an inch or two shorter than they really are. Make of that what you will.
mande2013 says on 16/Apr/15
For the record, when we see a celebrity who's smaller than we expected, there's a tendency to exaggerate the smallness. Also, the 67 inches out of the pool remark regarding Sly was made late in his career after some height loss could have occurred. All in all, I think 172/173 cms peak with 174 as his 'out of bed' peak height is possible, but 170 prime is just overstating the fact that he's less imposing in person than one would expect.
mande2013 says on 16/Apr/15
Why would being under 5'10 be such an issue for an action star? Al Pacino's made a career out of playing alpha male roles, and from day one, nobody's ever been under the illusion that he's even weak average. In short, Pacino's always been a leading alpha male, who's also 'short', and nobody's ever given a ****. And Dustin Hoffman isn't exactly a stranger to non-loser leading male roles.

Realistically lets say he had a boost of 3 inches tops, maybe a little less.. even that much can be a challenge when being extra physical. there comes a point where its impossible to be physical with too much of a boost, so if he was 5'9 barefoot then boots get him up to around 6ft. He would appear to be around 5'11 and he certainly looks that in most his movies and while he runs and fights etc.

Again, there is video footage of him falling over in his high heels while filming a movie on set a few years ago. He was running and clearly he lost his balance while running on stilts. I'm sure if you look hard enough you can still find it somewhere online.
RoseBench says on 11/Apr/15
Darren: Stallone does not look 5'11" in any run or fight or anything else scene(s). You are a terrible judge of height. Just awful! He stood next to me. I'm 5'9". I was looking down at him. Stop believing movie magic.
Gabe says on 10/Apr/15
Rob, how can you list him this tall if there is so many evidences that he was 5'8" at his younger days?
I mean, the guy who said Stallone was "Sixty-seven inches" could not have been mistaken by over an inch.
I do think he was 5'8" peak and today is 5'7.75" (He keeps a great shape)

First of all, Dolph has lost height since Rocky 4 and you KNOW IT. This CANNOT be disputed. He is MAX 6'3" today (being over 1" shorter than Conan Obrien a few years ago) and Stallone is packing as usual.

If he was 5'9 barefoot i don't think he would always be wearing lifts. I think he was more 5'8 range, today he is like 5'7.5.

I agree with you on his current height (5'7.5"), but I think it's possible that he stretched the tape out at 5'8.5" in his younger days.

I don't see a 2" decrease in height next to his 5'10.5" brother... I see sly .5" shorter

Keep in mind that Frank is in his mid sixties, and he is probably around or just over 5'9 today. Because Frank isn't a fitness buff like Sly, he's probably more susceptible to height loss.
Will says on 22/Mar/15
Stallone is 5'8 1/2" barefoot. I put him at a weak 5'9". He is of average height.

George says on 21/Mar/15
Stallone is 5'7", not 5'9", in his peak years he claimed to be 5'11" which is a joke, his Rambo co-star Richard Crenna who was 6'1" towered over him, and it was clear he was only 5'7". It was clear as an action star he would lose credibility if it became known he was smaller than 5'10", so he has made a habit of using lifts and wearing elevator shoes, other actors have "upgraded" their heights as well, but no other actor has upgraded their height more than Stallone.
dn1 says on 21/Mar/15
looks like dons most valued customer needs a whopping downgrade that guy was not lying about making him 4.5 inches taller bring sly to justice rob!
Heylo says on 20/Mar/15
All of this useful information from all kinds of people, even girlfriends where they claim that Sly is 5'7-5'8, still Rob puts him at 5'9. "5 foot 10 1/2 inches tall in elevator shoes"... A legit 5'9 guy would be taller than 5'10 1/2 in custom made elevator shoes.

I think he might have been very good at tricking people into believing he was taller, he could really have been about 173-174cm at his peak.
The shredder says on 19/Mar/15
Sly just don't claim 5'11 , he claims 5'10 1/2 , 5'10 and 3/4 to make us think he is modest and rounds to 5 ft 10 . What 5'7 guy in history has ever pulled this lol ?
[Editor Rob: sometimes people do use fractions as a verbal trick. It can make it sound more beleivable, 'hey they didn't claim the full 5ft 11 and said 5ft 10 and 1/3rd' or something...little do they realise they are 5ft 9 and 1/3rd!]
bernie says on 19/Mar/15
@mike - correct, with a help of let's say 2.5inches from his shoes, if you mean the pic above where he is obviously tip-toeing inside, there's about 0.5" difference...
Frankie68 says on 19/Mar/15
Love all the 5'7 love...cause a man on 4 inch lifts who looks 5'10...cant be 5'8 or 5'9 flat footed....some people think im nuts cause i say sly is no more than 5'7 flat...
mike says on 18/Mar/15

Alex says on 18/Mar/15
There is plenty of people who met him and they say he is 5'7. there's a 5'7 prop guy who met him and Stallone said he was 5'10 to him, the guy asked Stallone if he was measuring himself in metric inches and he got fired.
[Editor Rob: I'd throw in the towel if a peak sly actually did measure 5ft 7!]

Sly always prided himself with bodyguards well under 6 feet like Chuck Zito. Those things with Ali rival the boots Mel Gibson wore with Danny Glover, heeled and packed.
Dong says on 17/Mar/15
to be that insecure about his height he must be under 5'8". no one who is 5'9" - 5'10" is that insecure
Parker says on 16/Mar/15

M says on 16/Mar/15
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," - That's says evrything Stalone is only 5'7".
bernie says on 16/Mar/15
@Darren510 - if a 5'7" guy is standing on bricks or is wearing at least 4 inch heels he certainly can pull of to 5'11"!! Why not..?? And these ones he's wearing here with Ali are not just giving one or two inches advantage.. That's for sure...

Darren510 says on 13/Mar/15
Interesting video of Stallone with Ali. Sly looks about 5'11 there. A 5'7 guy could not pull that off, but a 5'9 guy could.
Brad says on 13/Mar/15
Mel is a strong 5' 8". Loves custom boots. Watch him in Braveheart without his customs, he looks short all over the place.
Parker says on 13/Mar/15
@Anthony - Stallone's eye level is not below Ali's mouth so I still think its nearer 3, but lets split the difference and say its 3,5 inches. Ali 6'3 in his footwear, Stallone 5'11.5 in his.
the shredder says on 12/Mar/15
Brad do you think Mel is 5 '8 on the nose?
Anthony says on 11/Mar/15
Parker says on 9/Mar/15
Stallone looks about 3 inches shorter than Ali to me

I think if Ali stood up straight and Stallone's hair was as short as Ali's, there would be about a four inch difference. This would mean Stallone is pulling off 5'10 - 5'11 in those shoes (okay, boots). Still, it would be darn near impossible to pull that off at only 5'7.
CDS says on 10/Mar/15
Back in the '90s, I heard Stallone was considering a leg-lengthening surgery not unlike Ethan Hawke's character had done in the film "Gattaca". Does anyone know if this ever came to fruition?
Frankie68 says on 10/Mar/15
@danimal....good point....i just think if sly was closer to 5'9 like some people choose to believe,,,than u add his footwear...which (back in the 70s ) where prob platform type shoes...that was the style back than....he wouldnt have been so short compared to ali.....the size difference was very noticable....he was much bigger than sly....
Brad says on 10/Mar/15
He's just 5' 8" on the nose.
Brad says on 9/Mar/15
Sly's custom boots with massive heel dancin' with Ali are the record book Sly material for height enhancing.

Danimal says on 9/Mar/15
Frankie68 says on 9/Mar/15
I wanna finally prove my point on my height estimate for sly...even in his youth he is /was no taller than my 5'7 estimate...everybody here go to youtube...put in 1977 academy awards....and put in muhamed ali / sylvester stallone.......ali was about 6'2 in his prime....when he comes on stage behind sly and they start going "toe to toe"...u see how short sly is next to him...plus when there dancing around fighting u see slys heel / boots (lifts) he has on....the size despartity is obvious and not to be denied...if sly was flatfooted he would have been invisible next to ali...even in his prime he never saw 5'8...and certainly forget 5'9....

I don't think he's a flat 5'7". I'd say 5'7.5" today and an inch taller in his younger days. He is after all around 70 years old and the average 70 year old male loses just under 1.2".

I was able to track down a magazine article on the heights of movie stars I've mentioned in several threads on here- it's Movieline Magazine- June, 1996, with Jim Carrey on the cover (who, from I recall, is not actually one of the stars featured in the article). But for Stallone, it gave his "official height" as 5'10", with a "Best guess" as 5'7"- with a caption underneath reading "Wears lifts to bed?" LOL Would be great to find a digitized version of this article to compare with the heights listed at this site, but I had no luck finding...
Brad says on 4/Mar/15
Custom made boots for filming much like his Rambo ramped up wedged monsters. Only 2" added and "could have lift" is comical. This is how he gets away not looking 5 feet 8 flat with ease on film.

In Copland Stallone is about a half in taller than Deniro.Also in the movie,Ray Liotta and Stallone are in flip flops in 2 scenes.Sly is 3' maybe 3.5' inches shorter.I think you have his height spot on.

Frankie , he pulls 5'11 at times , look at him with Denzel and Hulk Hogan from a 2004 , 5'11 look means he would measure 6 ft in footwear to look that , he is not getting 5 inches in footwear. 5 '7 is insane.
Frankie68 says on 2/Mar/15
5'7 isnt absurd when givin his munsters....he"ll pull 5'10 in his shoes from a 5'7 size...
bernie says on 2/Mar/15
@HeightcrazyRed6ft - he seems to be 6' foot here at "Wetten dass..", and these munsters almost look kind of ridiculous, must give him a solid 4", he's struggeling to keep the balance to avoid falling forward when walking down the sairs. Around 5'8" is suitable for him nowadays...
@Frankie68 - i agree, he often appears 5'10"-5'11" range, but he's not wearing those 4 inchers big boots like in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tnovTI5O6c all the time. So thats why i think 5'7" is to low...

What is the argument? Easiest height on the site. Woke up 5'9 in his prime and walked around a strong 5'8. Now he wakes up a mid 5'8 and goes to bed around 5'8 flat.

5'10 absurd. 5'7 absurd. Hmmmm what are the 2 heights in between? Lol

There's no way that lifts would make a 5'8" guy appear just 1"-2" shorter than him.

---

If Michael Phelps is really only the 6'2.5" he's listed at on this site, Lochte is only about 6'0", possibly a hair over it. Lifts can most certainly make a 5'8" guy look 5'10" - 5'10.5" and depending on posture and camera angles even taller.
the shredder says on 1/Mar/15
He can't be 5'10 or 5'10.75 range because Mr.T is not even 5'11 , he also can't be 5 '7 because that is too damn short to look as tall as he can.

Frankie68@ If Rob doesnt believe Sly is 1.74 why he lists him 5ft8.5?
Can you explain this to me? Rob is the creater of this site.I think you dont know who the Rob is?Rob is the person who runs this site.He listed sly 1.73 cm years ago then he changed it to the 1.75cm.Now he downgraded Sly to 1.74 because of the height lose due to his age.I agree with you Sly definetly isnt a tall person thats sure. Whether he is 5ft9 5ft8 or 5ft7 he is short.American avarage male height is 5ft9.75.Sly was never over 5ft9 in his life.But he never dropped below 5ft8 either.You can say 5ft7 I have respect for that.You are not my enemy we are just arguing for height.We are here for logical explanation and guessing heights.I am only making sense of humour,no need to get agressive.For me Sly was 5ft9 in his peak and 5ft8 now.For you it may be different there is no problem for that.
HeightcrazyRed6ft says on 27/Feb/15
He did look between 6"-6´1" in big footwear so I think the shortest he could measure is 5´8.5"peak

Imo his evenig peak was just a tad short of 5´9".

today, especially with the Klitschkos he looks 5´8"flat max
Frankie68 says on 27/Feb/15
@bernie...i agree with u. ...everyone here has opinion of slys height....some people claim hes short...some say average....but nobody ever claims hes tall...so im sure hes short...just how short,,,who knows unless u meet him....i always say 5'7 range simply to imply his excessive footwear...forinstance ...if he is truly 5'9 5'8 or 5'10 flat ...he would prob go over a 6' appearance in shoes or boots....but to give the 5'10 look in boots or shoes...he would probably fall under the 5'8 range cause of his extreme footwear....its just logical...,when u look at expendabled pics of sly,bandares.gibson,,,and statham together...they look kind of the same size...but if sly was flat footed hed be shorter than them....if sly is standing next to a 5'9 or 5'10 person pulling off there height...than hed be shorter flatfooted cause of his shoes...
bernie says on 26/Feb/15
In the end it's not that important if 5'7 or 5'8 or 5'9 or in between for this legend, he's a great star anyway. Concerning me, i am not insisting on my 5'7.75"-5'8" nowadays/ 5'8.5" peak is possible...thats just an estimation, and i think i am not far away from the truth (by having seen almost all his movies). But none of us knows it exactly to half an inch without having stand next to him when he's barefoot. Call me ignorant, but 5'7" seems a bit to low and 5'10"-5'10.75" (MJKoP's claim) i simply can not believe...

Sly's 5' 10.5" figure was his barefoot lie. He's 5 foot 8 flat in '15.

Brad, he's a 70 year old man. Men his age on average lose a little over an inch. In his youth he was 5'8.5". Today, at 70, he's closer to 5'7.5" imo. Deniro looks to be 5'6.5"-5'7" these days. Was easily over 5'8" at his peak.

bernie says on 20/Feb/15
@184.3 - correct, but i'd go more like 5'7" for S.Stone to be honest. She in 3 inch heels, to take "specialist" for referrence, appears pretty same height as 5'9" E.Roberts.(He's also in shoes, so he may be about 178cm). I'd stay for 5'8" max. for Mr. Stallone.
the shredder says on 19/Feb/15
De Niro looks 5'5.5 there
Ryan says on 19/Feb/15
Rob, are you sure his peak was 175cm, don't you think is a little more, like 176-176.5cm tops. Even the fact that from his 20, for over 40 years he lost only 1cm is a little bit weird, when his similar, Arnie lost something like 2 inches
[Editor Rob: Arguing 176 isn't impossible, but generally around 5ft 9 I think barefoot. I don't think he put his spine under as much pressure as someone like Arnie, who was pumping much bigger weights and over many many years those discs are going to take a punishment.]

I think there very ordinary sized men....

@Bernie Sharon Stone is listed 5'8 here, so following your logic Sly stood 5'9 in that scene.
Steve says on 19/Feb/15
De Niro is wearing what appear to be regular loafers. We all know Stallone wears lifts. Remove them and they'd be closer to the same height. That said, Stallone is taller than 5'7". Just how much taller is the question.
Parker says on 19/Feb/15

Never a legit 5' 10 in his life a very weak 5' 9 peak 5'7 now
Brad says on 16/Feb/15
Sly's 5' 10.5" figure was his barefoot lie. He's 5 foot 8 flat in '15.
CDS says on 16/Feb/15
As a child of the '80s, I once asked my mother how tall she thought Stallone was- she replied, about 6'2"! LOL Of course, she obviously was not the greatest at height estimation since she put Michael J. Fox at 5'8" and Tom Cruise at 6 foot! LOL I dunno about the 5'7" claim, but I'd say Stallone's own statement about his height- at 5'10 1/2" could've been in shoes and with the hair- which back then he had a lot of it all piled up as most did in the '80s, which might put him in actuality in the low 5'8" range-??

Sly is 5'7....

@ Danimal

Stallone isn't your average 65 + man though. Around 2 cm loss (0.75) is more than believable for him considering his posture and fitness level.
Hypado says on 14/Feb/15
Stallone cold be 176cm in the peak, but now, 174 cm for this living legend is SPOT ON.

@Demeyer

Rob has him listed 185cm so i just went with that. It means Sly is 174cm in that pic and also with Arnie in Expendables 1 premiere. So Rob has this one nailed.

5'8.75-5'9 peak
5'8.25-5'8.5 current.

A 70 year old man loses a little over an inch on average, yet you're cutting that height loss in half for Sly? He's around 5'7.5" today. He was an inch taller at his peak.

How are those not flat?:o They are slip ons they barely give 1cm of height. Granted maybe Sly has something in there but he looks relaxed there which is very uncommon for him if you search for pics. In fact this is the only pic i found where you see the height difference, Sly has it down to 1.5 inches max in other pics lol.

Here is one from not long ago, during The Expendables with Arnie.

Jesse Stone says on 8/Feb/15
Well, but Nielsen has no flat shoes in hat photo, To be fair!
michaeljrocks says on 8/Feb/15
If you see pics of Sly with 5'6 UFC champion Ronda Rousy at the Expendables premier, he appears several inches taller than her in every pic, regardless of camera angle. Sure he's most likely wearing lifts, but there is no way his shoes would give him any more lift than the heels she is wearing. If he was any shorter than Rob has him listed there is no way he would look that much taller than Ronda in heels. They are elevator shoes, not miracle shoes.
Brad says on 7/Feb/15
Richie did, probably Sunnyside Sal, a NY grapher of great portificationality and chaskeyitiswhereman. G had him at Sly out of mouth figures to support is own 5' 8" (reality 5' 6.5") agenda in shots. He's in heeled and wedged customs with Nielsen in a lovely peach outfit.

5 foot 10 for Sly is laughable. He's never hit 5 foot 9 either.

5'10 is out of the question but I think 5'9 am height in the inception of the rocky movies was a possibility. What do you think his peak was brad?
bernie says on 6/Feb/15
@richie 5'10" during the 80's? So why then he appears in some scenes same height as Burt Young (ca. 172cm) and has ca. 3 inches on max. 5'4" Talia Shire! Watch him walking side by side with her for a few seconds in Rocky II just before the promotion shooting almost barefeet.. Far away from 5'10", seems more like 5'7.75"

All I can say celebheights is an interesting and exciting site with a sense of humour.I have respect for your opinion too.I have respect for everyones opinion here.Slys height is an interesting fact because he is the height master.He likes

I made an investigation and I was really surprised: Days ago I bought myself (for fun) a pair of insoles. Bare feet I am 5'9.5 tall. With boots and my new lifts I stand 6'1 !! I measured and showed it to some friends. They were a bit confused when I opened the door and stood 6 foot 1 inches tall in front of them. So if I can do that so easily, what can custom-made elevator shoes for celebrities do...?

Why would you want to boost your height by 3.5"? I'm sorry, but why are you so self-conscious about your height? You are average male height. You realize that anyone who gets to know you and realizes your TRUE height when you take off your shoes will realize that you're very insecure. Just accept you for who you are. There are men who are much much shorter than you who walk around with confidence. That is what you're missing, not height.
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" says on 4/Feb/15

I actually do remember those days lol. G insisted Sly was about 2" taller than him. Which actually wasn't a bad an estimate imo, he was just off on his own height.
Joe says on 27/Jan/15
Stallone has been cryptic about his height, he is 5'7.5, and for good reason, the ideal action hero is around 6 feet tall. He has claimed to be 5'11" when he was portraying Rambo and Rocky but in reality he was not even close to that height, and most people who have known him say he was never more than 5'7.5" without shoes. I was watching Rambo 3, and standing next to Richard Crenna who was 6'1", Crenna was more than 5 inches taller than Stallone, it was clear he was much taller, maybe Sly forgot to wear his lifts during filming. If you see him in Rocky, he looks only slightly smaller than 6'2" prime Carl Weathers, but again in Rocky Stallone is wearing boots, and you know he has lifts inside. Regardless you have to admire that Stallone has become one of the most famous and iconic people in history, he is recognized everywhere, regardless of his height.

Sly himself packed out those big ones cowboy boots, obviously giving him easily 2.5 inches, more like 3 inches (who knows whats actually inside?), and considering the whole body proportions.. Sly's way smaller like Frankie68 mentioned. So Arnie's max. 184-185cm with shoes here (was never more than 184-185cm barefeet in his prime). Considering these facts, how can Sly be 5'8.5" or even 5'9" barefeet? Like i said, 5'7.75" best.. can't be more than that...
Rob Will agree with me sly has just normal cowboy boots that give 1.75in while are has 1.3ish so sly has 1cm boost so 5'8.5 and 5'11.5 fits well

Frankie Why dont you make your own site and list Sly as 5ft7 in your fantasyworld site.This is a reality site.Noone will believe your 5ft7 garbage.
I am getting suspicious about your height.I think you are around 5ft7 and making sly shorter because of that.Stop being a wannabe and respect any height.There is no shame of being on any height.We said millions of times
4inch shoes will never give you 4inch.You stucked at 4inch shoes.Keep your
mind off about that shoes.Most you can gain with elevator shoes are around
3-3.5 inch range.So there is no chance of Sly to be 5ft7 in his peak.I can agree he is around 1.72-1.73cm nowadays.But 5ft7 is no sense.You are talking
about math but you are doing it wrong.
Brad says on 27/Jan/15
Frank must be in the Bieber blog mode on height, a G thang.
TJ says on 26/Jan/15
Frankie68, you seem to have really latched on to the 4-4.5 inches shoe argument. Repeating it doesn't make it any more accurate. Putting aside the fact that the Italian shoemaker who made the claim was probably promoting his own shoes and exaggerating what could be achieved, Sly obviously doesn't wear those shoes all the time anyway. Sly can absolutely pull off 5'11 in shoes sometimes and perhaps even 6ft on rare occasions in his most flattering footwear. There is no chance of a 5'7 man doing that, but every chance of a man of 5'8.5 - 5'9 doing so with good posture and the biggest shoes he can get his hands on. I'll repeat what Arthur said - his shoes do not give him 4 inches. A woman doesn't get 4 inches from 4 inch heels either. Given that Sly doesn't really get 4 inches from his footwear and that you have accepted that Sly can sometimes pull off 5'11, you should now recognise that he is taller than 5'7.
Frankie68 says on 26/Jan/15

Pic from Jesse Stone: In this period Arnie was 6'1" with (normal) shoes on. He has about 2.5 inches on Sly, and Sly's cowboy boots give him at least 2.5 inches. Not an extreme difficult calculation..there's definately no more left than 5'7.75" barefeet for Mr. Stallone here..! Far away from 5'9" or even 5'10" (barefeet of course)...lol

He's 4inches over paulie.....lol

Thank you soupeman....i dont understand some of these height estimates here either...i just laugh...i love when they say "hes 5'10". "5'11" in 4inch plus shoes...and than say hes 5'9 flatfooted....what happened to the 4inch plus lifts?......lol....its just logic

Conan might wanna bring Vigoda out to tell Frank: "Get tha hell outta here!"

Now stop and take a look at reality: A picture of a planet hollywood event lots of years ago. I tried to find this one with their footwear visible. Here you can see Sylvester wearing pretty high Cowboy Boots while Arnold in normal shoes. And he is still A LOT taller than Sly. -- just take a look Click Here

It's up to you to tell what height he really is, but from all I saw by now (and the barefoot photos I've posted with Flavin), my argument is that he's never been taller than 5'8 1/2 or even just a small fraction over 5'8. And that in his prime.
Arthur says on 24/Jan/15
5ft7 for Sly is bull****.Some short people here trying to make him shorter.
But a lot of us know he is beetween 5ft8to5ft9.Both 5ft7 and 5ft10 are laughable for Sly. 4inch shoes 4inch shoes 4inch shoes........ He always wears 4inch shoes.What next flesh coloured foot lifts!!!!!!!
soupemann says on 23/Jan/15
Is Frankie the only sane person here? Why bother Frankie? These types wont face the reality..the obvious.. The logical sly was never ever over 5'7"

Rob, how tall does Frank Stallone claim to be?
[Editor Rob: Frank says he's 200 pounds at Six Foot One...height inflation runs in the family I guess.]

Really? The 200 pounds I have no problem believing (he's a bit chunky), but 6'1" is just laughable. 5'10"-5'11" at best, right?
184.3cm says on 22/Jan/15
Could be heading towards 5'8 flat though soon. I dont see him less than 175cm at peak, so 5'8.75-5'9 peak and .5 inch loss today. So maybe 5'8.25 in 2015.

When sly is in his best shoes and posture he can look 1.5-2in smaller than arnie who is 6'0.5 in shoes now and was 6'1 shoes 5-10 years back so sly is defenetly 5'10.5-11.25 depending on shoes so has to be 5'8.5-9in

There are "rocky3" youtube videos of hulk hogan stating sly is in great shape but is 5'6 5'7 at best....mr.t as well saying sly is a "little guy" ...theres the actress from "fist" whos 5'8 and said shes taller than him and was told to wear flats in the movie because of this reason....look it up...
Steve says on 21/Jan/15
Jesse, who in God's name is the woman in the photo with legs that look like a concentration camp victim? Is she for real?

I think Stallone's peak height was 5'8 & 1/2". Lifts put him at over 5'10". No way was he 5'7".
Frankie68 says on 21/Jan/15
@jesse stone...I agree ....Sly's height of 5'9 or 5'10 is the biggest joke in Hollywood....period...
Frankie68 says on 21/Jan/15
@arthur....he will keep up with him in his 4inch plus shoes....and Arnold isn't 6'1 either nowadays....he's lucky if he's 6'.....so sly can and is conceivably 5'7....not a doubt in my mind....u put 4inch plus boots/shoes or whatever he wears on a 5''7 man.....u"ll see a huge difference in height appearance....after all.....isn't it why sly wears monsters?

Parker, I agree that his footwear is more modest than in the past, but there's a good chance he's at least packing a slight lift in those dress shoes. The guy's been wearing lifts his entire career; why would he stop now?
6ftMagician says on 20/Jan/15
@the shredder, I politely disagree. Key word = LIES. I cannot stand lies. Especially not a lie which contradicts the very masculine traits Stallone supposedly embodies. There is no shame in being any height, not least 5'8'' strong. That is enough, I would think to annoy anyone, almost as much as 5'10'' guys devaluing the meaning of a true 183cm guy like myself with their lies. In a different life I'd claim 6'1 or 6'2, I just been brought up to be honest.
Arthur says on 20/Jan/15
Wearing 5inch-6inch elevator shoes ragulary will cause feet and leg distortion problems.So it is impossible for Sly to wear them reagulary.He sometimes wears normal shoes and still manages to look a weak 5ft8.5-5ft9.Click Here
Arthur says on 20/Jan/15
Frankie@ a 5ft7 man will never look like this.Click Here
Stop downgrading Sly. We are not saying Sly is 5f10. But it is sure he isnt
5ft7.I dont know your height but If you are 5ft7 or 5ft6 try 5inch elevator shoes and measure yourself in them.You will never measure 6ft yet alone 6ft1.Arnold is hitting 1.85cm-1.86cm in this photo I posted and Sly is nearly same as him.So that means Sly is hitting 1.84cm-1.85cm in his biggest lifts (probably 5inch range elevator shoes)So it is impossible for him to be 1.70cm.Listen my advice wear that 5inch elevator shoes and measure yourself they will give you 10cm-11cm at most and keep in mind everyone has shoes.So they will give you 8cm-9cm total.You are saying Briggitte Nielsen as proof.
Brigitte Nielsen is the same height as Arnold.So it is very normal for Sly
to look shorter than her.And also you are saying Sly always wears 4inch shoes.İts impossible to wear them regularly because they are very hard to walk in.Its very possible to injure your ankles with them.Men has different feet shape than women.And I will post you a last photo.İn this photo Sly really wearing lifts and looks close to 6ft.Here it is Click Here

Just seen expendable 3, and I had to laugh most of these so called hard men of action were 5'9 or under - Stallone, Statham, Jet li, Banderas, Gibson, Snipes, Anold is struggling to look or hold 5'11 - so these short guys kicking the back sides off the bad guys but waite Stallone is 6,8 Arnold is 67, Harrison Ford us 71, Gibson 58 - so very old men looking really short shouldn't maybe running around thinking they are not a day over 30 lol
6ftMagician says on 19/Jan/15
I do not know why but this guy really annoys me. I can't stand him and his brother's height claims. There is no shame in being any height, not least anything over 170cm. Pathetic excuses for men - they preach an 'alpha' male lifestyle, yet they espouse characteristics not associated with men - namely, blatant lies and insecurity.

Stallone you are a solid 5ft 8 inch, accept it and be proud. Rob should be your role model.

Beached is on a beach. Paps are paparazzi who take pictures for money. Pop is an expression they use for hitting the take the picture button.

Ported out on a Meal money mission or Where Man loot seeker the G hits the elevated for the Plaza. That might be code. I met my astronaut and Sal delivered the fries before going upstairs for the measure. Old school code.

Rob when it comes to height I feel that it's easier to see differences amongst ppl if average height because they are just that. Average and regularly seen. Do you think it's harder to pin point exceptionally tall people's actual height?
[Editor Rob: yes it can be, they are less common and much further from average ranges, so could have more variable guesses from people. If you asked a bunch to guess a 6ft 7 guy versus a 5ft 7 guy I think there would be a wider range of guesses for the 6ft 7 man versus the 5ft 7 man.]

You guys think Stallone is taller than Cruise. I say about even.

Sly's about 5'7.5" today (down from 5'8.5" peak) and Cruise has never been over 5'6 3/4" (his peak height).


I generally agree with all your estimations but cruise under 5'7 peak. That's insane. How did you come to that? Danimal and J 31
**** I expected the comment and thanks for the obvious question.
I try to be generous and shrewd and the same time. The most frustrating part and is when you have met both actors in person. How do you translate a very accurate observation? The fact that Stallone is a lot older now gives Cruise and the advantage. Cruise is a small-medium framed man, but has the proportional body with the more streamline appearance. Stallone has the upper body of a medium to medium-large man, but with very short legs. At one point the two were about even, but now I give Tom the advantage due to Sly's age. Yes, Sly has an impeccable posture, but as he ages--his legs are becoming more bowed. In flat feet and shaved heads-Cruise edges out Stallone. Stallone still has the shape (upper body) of a Steve Reeves -but smaller, while Cruise has similar shoulder, neck, chest, arms to Edward Norton, again smaller frame. I think in time more folks will learn that Sly was far below 5'9". Sly's longer arms have helped him with the allusion of greater height.
Arthur says on 2/Jan/15
I am tired of saying same things. I have respect for peoples opinions.But 5ft7 and 5ft10 are garbage.Watch Copland no lifts. He looks beetween 5ft8 to 5ft9 in this film.He looks 2.5 inch shorter than Liotta and he looks 2inch taller than Kietel.

He swore Sly was 5' 10.5"+ since "I'm 5 feet 8 with him when he was in sandals,see da picture".Fact: 5' 6" (young G pictured) was getting crushed by a 5' 8.5" Sly in NYC sandals: built up custom wedged up footwear.

ritchie says on 29/Dec/14
The only occasion we saw Sly without dubious footwear was in the movie Copland where he portrayed an overweight middle aged guy. He appeared around the same height as DeNiro and had nearly 2 inches on Kietel who is 5'7". Ray Liotta who is just 6' towered Stallone by some 3 inches. Minus lifts he's in the 5'9" range, no taller..
Jesse Stone says on 29/Dec/14
@ Editor Rob: Do you think his elevator shoes are custom-made? And where could they be made?

And what's your opinion on the statement of this italian shoemaker, that he made Stallone 4.5 inches taller for 16 years...

Thank you, Jesse.

Rob, would you be shocked if Sly let you take a pic with him wearing liftless shoes? I'm positive that in equal footwear you'd be edging him out today by close to .5".
[Editor Rob: from the 2 events he did, the NY and England one I beleive he would have pulled off looking 5ft 9.25 at least if I wore normal shoes. I doubt he'd be up for any barefoot shot without checking with the photographer to shoot a height enhancing angle.]

Peak 5'9" now 5'8". Which is good considering most people loose 2 inches or more as they age. He's seemed to have lost less height than many at his age.

Knock .5" off both his peak and current height and you've got it.
Dmeyer says on 27/Dec/14
Sly Will probably aproch 5'8.25 soon and cruise could aproch 5'7.5 if cruise has lifts and posture they should look very close
miko says on 26/Dec/14
Would Cruise and Sly even dare stand near each other?

Rob to Jenny in the hotel room: "Did you just hear somebody yell woooo wooooo wooo woo nyuk nyuk nyuk?" Somebody must have had their TV on too loud.

Cruise versus Sly, interesting side by side. Rob looking out the window: "I coulda sworn I saw the G down there". Break from the Volvo bed, Sal, try Murray's sandwiches on Lex. 200+ pounds in '15, Chaskey soldier.

@ burby thank you! I try to be very reasonable.
I have been consistent with my post and (1 example) supported Rick Springfield's upgrade for a long time. Then, the upgrade! Hopefully, I have gained some tenure and a quiet nod from Rob. Again, Stallone is NOT, 5'9" in flat feet.
burby says on 24/Dec/14
Cruiser might be in Expendables 4? Red carpet comparisons would be kinda useless, but interesting. At least Sly promises R rated E4. The movie needs to be G free. Hey Sal, 2 regular slices and a medium Coke, thanks.
[Editor Rob: G's been dining out on his starring role in 'Private Parts' for 20 years...

Peak 5' 8.5", you have to proove (G moment) 5' 9" and loose (G moment attached) an inch. Burb might be right, 5 foot 8 weak. Remember Magilla The Gorilla's child pal: O Gee, O Gee!.

so back in the past people actually thought he was 6 feet tall? and he wore 3-4 inch lifts? Incredible. And suddenly now some say Arnold Schwarzenegger is really 6 feet instead of 6'2
bernie says on 23/Dec/14
@Arthur, yes for some reason he seems a little taller, although its not that best posture from Pele to compare...
But what is with that pic you've posted:
"Arthur says on 21/Dec/14
Looks 1.73-1.74 with Pele Click Here"
Caus' when this one is true..
"Frankie68 says on 21/Dec/14
Im sure hes on 4inch shoes with pele too...sly is short...and hes shorter than pele flatfooted...."
...there is honestly really no chance for Sly being 173-174cm...; you have to admit...
burby says on 23/Dec/14
Rey knows what's up. Stallone and Cruise same height 2014.

5ft8.5 prime and 5ft8 today in some 3 years he will be 5ft7.5
Arthur says on 22/Dec/14
@Bernie Sly is taller than Pele barefoot.Click Here
Vibram says on 21/Dec/14
I've seen Pele listed anything between 171 > 174cm. My estimate is 172cm for Pele. Here is Stallone with Bobby Moore (5ft10.25) and Michael Caine (6ft1). He looks about 5ft8.5 > 5ft9. Click Here

About 15 years ago, Stallone was in Toronto shooting a movie scene in a hotel I was staying in. I ran into him as I was walking across the hotel lobby and for a brief moment we stood eye to eye. And it really was eye to eye - he is really short. I am 5'2' and was wearing high heels (at the max 4 inches) which would at best make him 5'6'. I was shocked at how short he was!
bernie says on 21/Dec/14
@Arthur: looks like the leg length is equal, shoulder height pretty identical, maybe Pele's a little higher, and if Pele would stand as straight as he can (he does not here..) i'd say there would be no diffence between them both.
5'8.5" peak for Sly? I really doubt it... 5'7.75" peak would fit better i guess..

He clearly clears 5'8 peak
David says on 20/Dec/14
I think he was 5'9'' in his good old days, probably lost height because of ageing and now he scarcely peaks 5'8''
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.

Vibram was needed in the 2006 Celebrity Heights Sly section. His words of wisdom to correct the G and the Real A were needed.

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.
