How tall is Sylvester Stallone ?

Sylvester Stallone's height is 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 himself even joked about the size of Rocky IV co-star Dolph Lundgren and how "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."

Comment on the Height of Sylvester Stallone

To you MJKoP, i got the impression, no one is shorter than 5'11'...
No J.Statham, no JC van Damme, no A.Banderas, no W. Snipes, no Sharon Stone (appeared same height as Sly in the Shower scene), no M. Jackson, no Burt Young (appeared same height as Sly in the slaughterhouse scene in Rocky), no Rod Stewart (appeared even taller than Sly)..list goes on.
So according to your Theorie everyone of them is at least 5'11" or more.. even his wife J. Flavin must be over 5'11' then... that's fantastic, really...Thank You

MJJ and Stallone were both in the 5'11" range. Only difference is that Michael often slouched and wore flat shoes, while Sly frequently forced ramrod posture and would occasionally wear lifts, boosting him well past six feet.


Thanks for the laugh needed that. 5'9 peak for both men and Stallone is 5'8 now.

Of course ,man.It was only a littler argunent about a celebrity's stature so...no one is really angry towards anyone for any reason at all.Always peaceful my friend

Ole Blue Eyes was in custom made from waaay back. Jax was Mister Slouch. Sly on the red carpet at the Oscars will be in whoppers.
Arthur said on 4/Feb/16
I am not saying Sly was 5ft7 or Sly is 5ft7 and I am not saying Micheal Jackson was 5ft6 .
I am saying Sly was weak 5ft9 Jackson was 5ft8.
Click Here VERY VERY SİMPLE.
Anthony said on 4/Feb/16
Alright, fine. You win, Arthur. I'll say it. Our big hero the Italian Stallion originally stood an average 69 inches tall and went down an inch or just a half an inch. And only stood taller in the morning. Case closed. Now can we make peace?
TJE said on 4/Feb/16
He should be 5'8.25 today, but by the time Rob's wholly convinced, Sly will be 5'8 flat.
A Cut Above said on 3/Feb/16
As i mentioned a lot of times before,viewing several pics of Stallone,the actor is aroind 173 - 173.5.The concept of height loss due to age is widely adopted on this page but I will tell something.The stature decrease everyone argue about comes most of the times in people eho are experiencing poor posture developing ,such as slouching.Is this a condition in wich Sly is involved?Not at all.In fact,if You see the movie "Copland",Stallone is slightly shorter than De Niro (possibly 1.74 cm at that time).De Niro had a good posture back then .Now,see some photos of the two nowdays...De Niro posture is very very poor so the loss of stature is pretty visible and Stallone appears taller than him,of course most of the pics i saw Sly was wearing elevator shoes but you can clearly observe that bad posture subtracts a lot cms ,as in the case of the De Niro.In a Pic from Rocky 3,Stallone and Mr.T are facing off each other and i can see a 2 inch gap between the two.Besides,Mr.T is 178 cm so mathematically you obtain 173 for Sly.So this is my opionion,folks.
Arthur said on 3/Feb/16
Some people on here talking about body proportions saying Sly was 5ft10 he has long lengs etc.I will tell you proportions tell nothing. Nothing! My sister is 5ft3 she is very skinny and has very long legs and even she can look like a 5ft5 5ff6 girl! Everybody always guess her a 5ft5 girl.Same as my father.My father is a 5ft8.5 5ft9 man and he also has very long legs compared to his body he is about 160 lbs.And most people guess him 5ft9.5 to 5ft10.
So proportions tell nothing. You need to properly measure a guy to know his real height or you need to judge him in photos where he stands with other people.İnstead of talking about body proportions explain the photos I sent here with logic.You can look at Slys newer photos he isnt even taller than his daughters of course they have heels but I am pretty sure they are 5ft10 max even with heels.You can also look the photo of Sly where he stands with 5ft10 Micheal B Jordan Sly clearly looks 2inch shorter.For my opinion it is impossible for Sly to be taller than weak 5ft9 in his peak days.He is about 5ft8 in nowadays.He has a great body compared to his age I dont think he shrunk more than 1inch.
Lolo said on 2/Feb/16
To me, all in all, sly was a weak 176 cm at peak and still is 175 cm now. Anything under is suspicious with what we see in Creed. Did you see the movie ROB ?
burby said on 2/Feb/16
One can only imagine what ole blue eyes and Sly have on with MJ. Michael Jackson rarely "effected" in photos, that's what Sly, Cruise, and Murphy do.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Feb/16
Other than onset injuries...he hasn't lost that much probably because he's kept himself in great shape. I mean he'll be 70 this year!
Ismaeel said on 2/Feb/16
Peak height 5' 8.75''

Current height 5' 7.75''

He wasn't short for his era but just average and with lifts (2.5''-3'') was able to pull off a maximum of 5' 11.5''. Actually I never knew he was max. 5' 8.75'' until recently as he always appeared 5' 10'' to 5' 11'' in his movies because I had no idea that lifts and elevator shoes were so widespread in Hollywood.
Anthony said on 2/Feb/16
Come on, Arthur. Are you seriously trying to imply that Mike was never any taller than 5'6 or 5'6.5? I'm sorry, but even without platform shoes, he never looked that short in his adult years. Not ever. It might look that way in that pic of him next to 5'7 Sinatra, but there could be a catch to it, especially since it was only focused on their upper bodies. Heck, I'll even come out and say the same thing for those pics of him and Sly that I mentioned, so that I don't come off as hypocritical. But never mind about that. Let's just focus on Sly, because if there's one thing that I really hate, it's when discussions are constantly switching on certain pages that regard only one specific topic. Now, what you mentioned about Sly being only 5'9 in his heyday, that might be negotiable. I just feel that the look of his natural body length might suggest otherwise. I mean, something just doesn't seem right.

Jackson was over 5' 8" easy, I met him in '84 in Orlando.
Arthur said on 31/Jan/16
Anthony I never said Sly was 5ft7. I said he was a weak 5ft9 guy in his peak days.Yes Sly was taller than Micheal Jackson but this was 1inch at max.By the way Micheal Jackson was never over 5ft8.
He wasnt even taller than 5ft7 Frank Sinatra. Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/16
Rob, is 5ft8 flat today a possibility?
Editor Rob: you can argue at times he does look that short
bernie said on 30/Jan/16
@Patrick 5foot9 - "statham and stallone are not lying with his 5foot10 and 11 claims" ..yes, thats a good joke for sure..LoL!!
Statham besides 165-166cm Jet Li only appears 2 inches taller...
Sorry, you're not a good estimate in height, i have to agree to Jim Hopper, no more than 5'8" for both, Mr. Statham & Mr. Stalllone flat/ barefeet...!
amaterasu said on 30/Jan/16
Looked no less than 5'9" at his peak, and at times could look even taller. Rob, a guy like him did a lot of stunts and weight lifting in his life, plus he is already old now, so how could an old man with that active life style shrink only by 1cm ? He still manage to look close in height with 5'9" guys like Statham. Any chances he was more than 175cm in his prime?
Editor Rob: at times he certainly looked over 5ft 9, but I think most of that was down to footwear. I think Stallone's bone health is probably a lot better than other guys his age range, so although he did a lot of action movies, it's possible he only lost a little with normal wear & tear.
A Cut Above said on 29/Jan/16
Great analysis,Arrhur.Keep it up
Anthony said on 29/Jan/16
First off Arthur, let me just say that you didn't have to get so upset at my verbal defense. For 2 reasons. 1: I was not trying to start a fight, but only trying to prevent one from escalating. And 2: it wasn't even directed towards you, given that you're not the one who was attempting to insult my intelligence. But just to show you I'm not insecure, I grant you my sincerest humble apologies. Now back on subject here, what you said about MJ having never been 5'9, I have to say that's impossible. Many places list him at that height. He certainly looked like he was, especially since he appeared much taller than that slimy rat Martin Bashir who stands a measly 5'6. He couldn't have been wearing heels at that point. As for those picks you pointed out to me, as much as I'd like to say they were helpful, in all honesty, they were kind of confusing. But, Arthur, if you have doubts about MJ being naturally 5'9, then don't let me stop you. And GP, maybe I am new to this site and maybe I'm not. I just figured that it shouldn't matter if those pics I mentioned only showed Sly and MJ's upper bodies, since a lot of people seemed to know MJ's natural height. Maybe it was lifts. However, I still say that Sly's body length looked much longer that a lousy 5'7. But don't let my theory offend you. Sorry boys, but I just can't stand the excitement of this argument anymore.

Cant see over 5-8 today barefoot.
Patrick 5foot9 said on 28/Jan/16
Im one of those guys who never thought Stallone ist small. I would guess him taller than me. Rob is the expert, but i think, maybe many people like statham and stallone are not lying with his 5foot10 and 11 claims. I´m 1.75m at worst, and i dont see so tall as the dudes appear to me in photos and other media stuff.
Brad said on 28/Jan/16
Lift magician. His sneakers are ramped.

james, was Ray Liotta wearing shoes? if so, that would still make Sly average height for his era - 5'8''-5'9''

Funny to see the same people trying to downgrade him for so long on this site. By the way, Boxing shoes is like being barefoot. When i see my friends with them on, they loose 1 Inch on me automatically. You have the feeling that they look small. But they aren't. They just lost 1 inch on you because you have normal shoes and thay have Boxing shoes which is like being barefoot.
My guess : 176 cm peak
175 cm now.

I wouldn't go under. Just watch Creed. He is often on sneakers and he barrely looks short.


As a boxer your 100pct right. Boxing shoes add virtually nothing in regards to height. But I will tell you. Look at his sneakers a little closer. There was a scene in creed when he was in the hospital going through chemo and he is seated. His sneakers look like stilettos. Don't be fooled he's been a lift magician since the 70s. He's 5'8 and a hair these days.
Arthur said on 27/Jan/16
Anthony I am not you enemy or something I just got angry of your offensive attitude.I have respect for your opinion.Now lets get to the business Micheal Jackson has never been a 5ft9 guy.He used to wear 2inch 3inch heeled cuban shoes yet still looked 5inch smaller than Bill Clinton
Click Here
And one more he used to wear 2inch shoes with Eddie Murphy who has flat red generic shoes and yet looked same height as him.Eddie murphy is 5ft9.
Click Here
Click Here same height one have cuban shoes one have elavator shoes no difference!
Click Here you are talking about this micheal jackson has terrible posture and massively slouching and Sly have his magical shoes again
Click Here Click Here look at slys shoes hope this helps!
GP said on 27/Jan/16
Hey Anthony, I'm just curious are you referring to photos of Sly with Jackson where you can't see the shoes? I think you gotta be new to this site since you think that Sly was legitimately taller than Jackson. Only recently he has started using smaller lifts, before he always had at least 2" in his shoes.
dmeyer said on 27/Jan/16
Even the monsters he had in rocky and cobra he could get 2.75in measuring almost 6ft
james said on 27/Jan/16
I watched Copland at the start of the movie Stallone is coming out of a bar in flip flops 5'11 Ray liotta helps him to his car ..he was about 3 inches shorter than ray
Anthony said on 27/Jan/16
I'm sorry Arthur, but are you Danimal's agent or something? You can't tell me not to stand up for myself, which is all I was doing. This guy was the one who started it. Because I was politely pointing out a fact until he began running his big mouth, trying to label me as a fool, which I'm not, so I fought back. And I'm sure you would've done the same thing. Now as far as Sly's real height goes, if you're still not convinced that he used to be near 5'10 (without heels), check out some old pics of him standing next to Michael Jackson, who by the way was one of his close friends. Michael Jackson stood 5 feet 9 inches, and Sly clearly had at least half an inch on him. If that's not enough proof, then I don't know what else to tell you.

Rob,do you think he used lifts during the fight against Anronio Tarver in "Rocky Balboa"? I saw some pictures of them together at the premiere and Stallone seemed to wear elevator shoes.Hower,I still can't guess on that movie fight
Editor Rob: I wouldn't put the idea past him...after all, he talked about fighting in lifts before.
Brad said on 25/Jan/16
Sly has never been 5' 10" or even 5' 9". He has never had long legs, get any beach shot, short legs. Sly's boxing shoes on camera were wedged up customs like his Rambo boots. Anthony sounds like G.
Arthur said on 25/Jan/16
Anthony I wont call danimal rude he is a polite person and I have the same opinion as him.Sly was a 1.74 1.75 cm guy in his peak.Danimal is right Sly wasnt even a strong 1.75cm in his peak.There are lots of photos showing he was a weak 5ft9 guy in his peak.He was a weak 5ft9 guy in his peak.And this is a height forum with rules so everyone has rights to say their opinion.Dont call anyone pathetic again.You cant stand a person when he dissarange your opinion.Dont be like that.in my opinion Sly was around 5ft8.5 range in his peak days.It can be anywhere beetween 1.73cm to 1.75cm range.I dont agree with the opinions that stating he was over 5ft9.I am not saying Sly was 5ft7 or something.But definetly between 5ft8 to 5ft9.
Alex said on 25/Jan/16
Looks barely 5'8 with his wife
Brad said on 25/Jan/16
The first one Jesse chucked up is the reason he looked taller so many times, wedged up monster custom boots. He tried this crap with Telly in '75 and got the "who loves ya baby" pointing at his Telly whoppers.
Anthony said on 24/Jan/16
Danimal176, is your life really so pathetic that you have to respond twice to my first comment from last month. First of all, I'm not your friend, so don't you be calling me that. Secondly, I've already explained that aside from the high heeled shoes, a person's height is clearly noticable by their body length. Back in the 70s you could cleary see that Sly had very long legs, which showed he was either 5'10 or close to it. And thirdly, that Rocky 4 photo you pointed out to me that showed Sly and Burt Young standing nearly the same height is completely invalid. Wanna know why? I'll tell you. Sly was wearing his frigging boxing shoes in that pic! And every smart person knows that boxing shoes have much flatter bottoms than regular shoes, which make people up to an inch taller. Which by the way 5 foot 8 Burt Young was wearing. So, whose the uneducated one now, smarty?
Pitch_Fork said on 24/Jan/16
I guess he was in 5'8'' range in his prime and now is about 5'7'' judging from Jesse Stone pics.
With his build, proportions and wearing elevator shoes almost all the time it's no wonder he doesn't look short.
Still a legend if you ask me
jtm said on 22/Jan/16

Sly most certainly was a full 5 feet 10 inches in the early Rocky movies

He most certainly wasn't. He wasn't even a full 5'9" in the early Rocky movies. LIFTS and HIGH-HEELED leather boots my friend. Pay attention to his footwear in those movies.
Alex said on 21/Jan/16
I think Sly is about 170-172 cm barefoot.
Jesse Stone said on 21/Jan/16
These aren't quite flat I'd say Click Here -- see, cuban heels and a huge amount of insole... guess he could pull off over 5'11 in these!

And here too Click Here Click Here

Sly (in those odd shoes) not taller than his 5'9 wife almost barefoot Click Here Click Here

I think he's around 5'8 now
Arthur said on 21/Jan/16
To be honest for Sly the most he pulled of was 5ft11.75.He never appeared over 5ft11.75..Considering the maximum amount of lits he uses around 3inch range that gives him 5ft9(1.75cm)- 5ft8.5(1.74cm) in his peak.
You can argue for him that he is in 5ft8 range nowadays.Anything below or over is absurd in my opinion.Most new people in this site dont know the fact that the maximum height a person can get with elevator shoes is in 3.5inch range Rob prooved that.If you buy and try the 5inch -5.5inch big elevators and measure yourself you will see they will give you 3.5inch-3.8inch at most and keep in mind it is very hard to walk with that type of big models.So there is no way for Sly to wear these munsters all the time.And we are talking about action films there is no way that you can wear this type of biggest elevators in these films.But I agree with you there is no doubt he weared 2.5inch-2.75inch models he weared that type of small elevators all the time.Yes Sly used elevator shoes.but most of them are in between 2inch-3inch range.The 4inch or 5inch ones are urban legend.There is absolutely no way to get 5inch from an elavator shoe..Sly is a legend and a charismatic person and uses moderate elevator shoes not obvious ones.If you want to know a person that uses monster type of elevator shoes it is Robert Downey not SLY!

Click Here Never seen SLY wearing that type of obvious ones!

Well he really is a magician isnt he? He could look Arnie in the eye at ome point but now consistently looks 3 inches shorter. He must have been packing elevators that gave minimum 3 inches. Probably rambo customs £££

So i have Arnie at 5'11 nowadays so Sly is 5'8 flat imo.
The Shadowmaster said on 17/Jan/16
Telly Savalas height is 5ft 10.75in. Stallone appeared with him in an episode of Kojak. There were eye level shots of them standing, talking together. Savalas was much taller. At least 3 inches taller than Stallone. No way was Stallone 5ft 9in back in the 1970's when the episode was shot.

Old fashioned average height was 5'8

@Alucard...Carl Weathers 5'11" and Sly Stallone 5'7" ???? Sorry but Weathers is still a tall guy at 6'1" and Stallone a weak 5'9", to suggest anything less is just ridiculous. Remember Tony Burton from the Rocky series, Burton was actually a professional boxer and stood at 5'11" and Weathers had 2 inches on him.

My dad's peak was 5'9.5 and he is the same age as Stallone. Today (he shrank to about 5'8.5 - 5'9) that sometimes seems to be shorter than average...lots of taller people around these days. But when we look at pictures from the 70's he seemed very average maybe a bit above. So those views of heights changed with time I believe..
Peter175 said on 14/Jan/16
@James B
5'9 was always the average, with 5'10 even being closer to the average for US males. Stallone is not short by today or his gen, but he definitely would never be considered above average to any great degree.
James B said on 12/Jan/16
What alot of ignorant people fail to realise is that Stallone was never a short guy in the first place more like a strong average for his generation in particular. A legit 5'9 back in say the 1970s I'd imagine would be between average-tall since average height of American man back then was like what? 5'8?

People call Mel Gibson short too? Stand a peak Mel next to a legit 6footer there would not be a big difference, that is not short.

How tall do you think he can hit in lifts, Rob?

Editor Rob: I've never really seen him wearing anything that would give 4 inches of true height, but in the 3 inches range yes....so he could measure 6ft in lifts.

He´s got to be in 4 inch munsters there Click Here
Look how awkward and chunky they look when he walks downstairs, he also looks max 3 inches shorter than the host Thomas Gottschalk who is 6´3" legit, so 6´4" in footwear.
Stallones legs look also way to long when barefoot pics show he has rather short legs proportionally
Editor Rob: 3 inch range is possible, but the boot and lift needed to get near 4 inches is massive.
Lolo said on 10/Jan/16
In CREED he looks a good 177/178 cm even in sneakers. Ok it´s a movie and bla bla bla but 174 cm only is hard to get.

I agree rob in some rare case hé did wear 2,75-3in type And was likely heating 5'11,75-6ft shoes/lifts on but he oftenly weard more the 2-2,5in type And was 5'11-11,5 at best in shoes , and somtimes just à 4cm type And was 5'10,5 shoes And looked 5'10 with posture
berta said on 7/Jan/16
rob i Think 175 i "about" right for Stallone but the scene were he and kurt russel is barefoot is a Little starange. Kurt russell is 176 and Stallone looks 1 cm taller.ore the same but not shorter? I guess he have the same height when he walks as when he measures.

I beleive Stallone wore 4 inch elevator shoes.I always assumed he is in the 173 range,no less than that for sure.Also,There is a pic of the Rocky 3 cast in wich Stallone and Mr.T appear wearing boxing shoes with flat sole and the gap between the two is about 2 inch.He is also shorter than his wife,listed at 175 cm in a pic standing together barefeet.
bernie said on 2/Jan/16
@Junior31 - pretty simple..Sly must have been grown up to 4 inches since then...best proof for that it is possible to still even grow after your thirties till your late sixties.. great!!!!

Sly is rag dolling from those phantom punches at 5'8.5" peak. Philly Phlat boxing shoes were needed.
Frankie68 said on 29/Dec/15
Sly is 5'7 flat !!! With his long arms & extreme footwear idk why it would surprise anyone how he can appear 5'10 ...when u really study his height compared to actors in his range its very obvious !!! More so with actors who are tall ... Now take the CREED premiere ...sly looked very short next to carl weathers & IS shorter than michael b jordan !!! So how is sly in the 5'9 5'10 range without lifts !!! He is in the 5'10 range in shoe lifts !! So that makes him much shorter flatfooted !!! & his shoes give him 3 inches minimum !!!
Brad said on 29/Dec/15
That training film with Weathers is a rare Stallone shot in regular boxing footwear. Wedged up customs with camera angles worked well in the film especially in the ring. Stallone 4.5" shorter against Weathers is pretty funny.
Brad said on 28/Dec/15
Spinell was owned by Rocky by an inch. A: Spinell wasn't 5' 11" B: Stallone is in massive customs. Between 5' 9" and 5' 10" is ridiculous. Bernie is correct in every line.
JoHn B said on 28/Dec/15
Check the page on facebook called Aginst the Ropes. It's a page on Boxing - on the 24th of December 2015 they put a video up of Stallone and Carl Weathers, it shows them in a Boxing ring in a empty arena in gym clothes practicing their movies for the film Rocky 2 - now I met Carl weathers 3 years ago and he is a legit 6'1'' even Rob has him down as this height on this Web site, in that old film Stallone looked no more then 5'8 against Carl he looked really short next to him.
the shredder said on 27/Dec/15
Based on Danimal's logic , every man stops growing at exactly 18 and all are 5'9.
bernie said on 27/Dec/15
@richie - where is the challenge/ difficulty for a 5'8" man pulling off to for example 5'11"? There is absolutely no problem, you only need the right shoes with the right heels with right inside sole! Miracle fullfilled!
Why then in some other scene with "Paulie" (5'7.5" - 5'8"), when they both entering the slaughterhouse, Sly in sneakers, there is no 3 inches difference between them??????? They look pretty identical in height..
Shouldn't happen to man between 5'9"-5'10" as you claim...... Reason?????
richie said on 26/Dec/15
Stallone could pull off a weak 6' in some of his earlier movies, watch the scene in Rocky with actor and close friend Joe Spinell, who at 5'11" was not a small man. Stallone had close to an inch on Spinell, albeit with cuban heels, so Sly at his peak height would have been somewhere between 5'9"/10". To suggest anything as slow as 5'7"/8" is just ridiculous.......
Brad said on 25/Dec/15
To get to 5' 10" Sly was wedged up in any scene.
Dmeyer said on 25/Dec/15
You could argue 5'8,75-9,25 peak but 5ft 10 is too much of course hé was that out of bed , in the Rocky hé can look 5'9-11 depending on shoes , burt young was 5'7,5 and millo is similar to rob height and there was à solid 3-4cm between him and mr t , of course respecting you'r comment Antony , hé could look 5'10-11 many times thaugh , but can also look 5'8,5 peak on rare occasion
Anthony said on 24/Dec/15
First of all, Danimal 176, you come across genuinely insecure and arrogant, calling people you don't even know "naive and ignorant", two things I assure you I am far from. Secondly, unlike most people, I happen to have enough sense to do my research before speaking. I am fully aware of the heels that everyone wore back in the 70s, but I also happen to be able to examine people very closely. I've seen lots of people who were 5'10, and it's quite clear that Sly was around that size back then. In case you forgot, there were other scenes in the old Rocky films where he wore sneakers, making his true height more clear, as he still appeared to be pretty much the same length. I'm only stating what I've checked out closely. But if you're gonna be rude about it, then just don't say anything.
Dorian said on 23/Dec/15
I guess he was and still is a solid 5'8".Approximately as Equal as Downey Jr , Renner .Lift wearer plus flawless pisture gives him a perfect taller perception
Arthur said on 23/Dec/15
Sly was a legit 5ft9 guy in his peak no taller, no shorter.He used variety of elevator shoes and wedges from past to today in both of his films and regular life.Directors often used special camera angles and special shoes for Sly.This is art.Look Sly with Carl weathers in rocky series they look identical in this films whereas Weathers is way taller than him in normal life.Sly is one of my favorite actors.But he changed his height so much that made us hard to guess.My advice is do a lot research for height before guessing Sly.Learn elevator shoes ,learn lifts,learn camera angles.Learn these topics before guessing Sly.Guessing Sly's height is an expert thing.If you are a beginner in height research you can easlly make a mistake guessing him.İn my opinion Robs listing is %100 correct for Sly.I watched all of Sly s films and looked nearly all of his shoes in photos and my final guess is Sly is a 5ft9 (1.75) guy in his peak.

1.75cm peak
1.73cm-1.74cm nowadays.

Sly most certainly was a full 5 feet 10 inches in the early Rocky movies, as he cleary stood 2 whole inches taller than 5 foot 8 Burt Young, and just a slight bit shorter than Mr. T who stands 5'10 & a half. He still even appeared slighty taller than Milo Ventimiglia in Rocky 6, and Milo is 5'9. Maybe some of those surgeries he had in the past for the injuries he sustained during the making of his other action films caused him to shrink a bit, but in the 70s and early you could cleary tell he did look a little tall. He might be a bit shorter these days, but there is no way in hell that he's as short as 5'7. I don't believe he's any shorter than 5'9. Maybe 5'8.5, but that's it. Any shorter heights are exaggerations.

I was once naive and ignorant too. This was their REAL height difference WITHOUT Sly's HUGE black heeled boots. I'm sorry, but you need to know the truth and my job is to educate people on LIFT wearers: Click Here

I live in Florida and in the early 90s, I actually met Sylvester Stallone on Miami Beach. I was with my girlfriend at the time. Stallone was barefoot walking on the beach. Most people didn't seem to notice or recognize him. But I actually walked up to him and said hi. He was really cool to chat with. Very nice.
Now I stand around 5' 9.75" at my morning height. Around 5' 9.5" later in the day. When I ran into Stallone, it was early afternoon.
This was the era before cell phones, so I never snapped a photograph of the encounter. Which I regret to this day.
I can tell you that Stallone only appeared a little shorter than me. I actually asked my gf about the height difference afterwards and she said I did look taller, but only by a little bit.
With that being said, 5' 9" seems about right to me.

What is your opinion based off of Danimal?
john said on 20/Dec/15
Sylvester Stallone is 5'6" not one inch taller
Danimal said on 20/Dec/15
At his peak barefoot, Sly was NEVER taller than 173.5-174cm (5'8.3"-5.'8.5") MAX. Today he's 171.5 (5'7.5").
Dmeyer said on 16/Dec/15
Hé is starting to look 173-4cm while 2 years back hé looked 174-5cm
Dmeyer said on 16/Dec/15
sly can look 9cm under arnie today as arnie wears his 4cm cowboy that give him a boost over sly 1-1.1in shoes so about 8cm smaller 173.5 and 181.5 respectively

Thanks you, I love this site

Editor Rob: while he might not be as tall as his claim, I'm not sure he's adding 3 inches to it, 5ft 9-10 range could be possible, but I've only had a brief look at him.

Amazing..
RisingForce said on 9/Dec/15
Danimal, that's just an average and iirc, the survey was done of only 2000 or so men. To have an average, you must have some above it and some below it. Just like you point out people who lose far more than the average (Arnold, Clint) Considering Sly still has great posture, he'd be a likely candidate to lose less than average. That survey only proved that men CAN lose 1.2" or more by age 70, not that they always do.
Dorian said on 9/Dec/15
I don t understand why "danimal"refers Stallone as 5'7.5 nowdays .So He is close is height as Tom Crhise?I mean,what is going on here?
Dorian said on 9/Dec/15
I guess the height loss experienced by Sly is not so dramatic at all.My uncle is 58 years old and he still is 170.5 cm,considering he always had an insanely peefect posture .Stallone is somone whos exercise frequently in his life,even today.I also viewed some of his training routines and they involve the hanging exercise.I strongly beleive He was always in the 5'8 range (173.5cm)and today he mayy got down to 173 flat or little less but i doubt.The point is ,as Rob knows also,the height loss can in certain cases be "prevented",perhaps not enterely but,thanks to the decompression process of the spine the discs between the vertebrae get rehydrated.Actors as Pacino and De Niro are subjects who experienced strong height loss due to their very poor posture and tendecy to slouch.De niro looked slightly taller than Stallone in the movie Cop Land..now is completely different.Of course Sly was always a lift wearer but his posture never let let down.There also some pics of Sly and his wife Jennifer ,who ia listed 175 cm on many websites,where they are standing togheter barefeet and the difference between the two is about 2 cm circa

Sly lost aleast 1.5cm at near 70s and thats a good loss for his âge so was not less than 174.5-175cm peak today in between 173-4cm
Mightyman said on 7/Dec/15
I have the slight suspicion that sly has had leg lengthening surgery a few years back, just maybe 1 or 2 inches extra, but it can make all the difference. The new technique uses a pin inside the leg bone which expands when u twist yr leg everyday. Its called fitbone. Also u don't need a leg cast or supports to walk around. So it is possible he did it.
Read about it here.

The average 70 year old man loses 1.19" in height from their peak height. I'm sorry, but Sly is NOT an exception to the rule. He was 5'8.5" at BEST in his prime and is 5'7.5" AT BEST today.

Danimal said on 7/Dec/15

5' 9" has always been wrong. He hasn't lost much in his adult lifetime. Sal only had a pocket of change for G's fries in the Volvo backseat bed before showtime upstairs.

I think Sly still looks slightly taller next to Carl Weathers than Rob does. He can be 5'8.5 or 5'8.75 but to be fair at the very most nowadays. Peak 5'9 , 5'9.5.
Junior31 said on 6/Dec/15
It's funny but Slys height might be the easiest one in here. Rocky 1 he was medlying around 5'9 (think a spec under) when he woke up and went to bed around 5'8.5. The morning of the creed premiere he's waking up mid 5'8 and going to bed after schmoozing on the red carpet 5'8 flat or a hair under. What so difficult about this

I really don't know if people are really that bad at judging height, or just brainwashed by propaganda and Hollyweird... Reading about Stallone being 5'8, 5'9 and even 5'10 is seriously comical... He's short, not a midget of course, but very very short, Stallone was never more than 5'7 absolute max, and maybe i'm being generous and he was/is even shorter, absolutely not taller though... One of the most extreme lift wearer, do you seriously think that a legit 5'8-5'9-5'10 guy would use shoes like his, with crazy minimum 3 inches lifts? And Carl Weathers was never more than around 5'11, not 6'1...

jtm said on 1/Dec/15
i dount jordan is over 5'10 after looking at the pictures posted on his page and there is still a possibility syl was wearing small lifts with him and weathers. still sticking with 5'7 range for syl. maybe 5'8 in his younger days if he was lucky but there's enough evidence he was never 5'9.
RisingForce said on 30/Nov/15
Footage of Creed premiere. Click Here Weathers next to Sly from about 0:45 on. Weathers should be just under 6'1" these days. Mr. R thought Michael B. Jordan was a "weak 5-11" and he's at 5'10.5" here. I see about 4 inches between Sly and Weathers, but at least 2 between Jordan and Sly. I agree with Rob and Dmeyer. Imo, Sly being a solid 5'8" like Rob these days is possible, but so is 5'8.5". Can't see him out of that range. I now believe he was just under 5'9" peak, like 5'8.75", pretty much exactly what Brigitte Nielsen said(174-175 cm)
Christian said on 30/Nov/15
Seeing Stallone with Mike Tyson and actor Jordan I now doubt if he ever reached the five foot nine mark. It seems that he could have been five eight and a half as his peak height cause he is the master of lifts and I find it hard to believe that he would be in public without any kind of lifts. Maybe just a half inch with his lowest lifts:) I agree that he looks more five eight today.
Lorne??? said on 29/Nov/15
Lol @ "RIP Sly's lifts, they served him well for 40 years."

I guess now he is content to just mess with Camera angles. Poor Kelsey Grammer, considering he's lost at least an inch himself,

I think he'd be about your height now, Rob. Solid 173cm. Slightly taller than me. :)
Byron T. said on 29/Nov/15
I'm with everyone else; the recent photos with Michael B. Jordan & Carl Weathers show Stallone is likely 5'8'' nowadays.

Dorian said on 27/Nov/15
Rob,I guess He was and still now is a legit 5 foot 8 (173) .
He is an elevator shoes wearer and maybe he is able to apper taller by the fact that He always seemed muscular and buffed,giving a sort of optical illusion combined,of course,with the shoe lifts.
Heylo said on 27/Nov/15
Maybe you should consider downgrading him to a flat 5'8? he really didn't look any taller than that next to Jordan. He could still have been 5'9 or at least, very close to it in his peak.
johemoth the dog said on 26/Nov/15
Seeing him with Jason Statham who is around 5'9, im thinking Stallone is more of a weak 5'8. Hard to tell since most pics with him he is wearing lifts, but there is a few without them, and he can look anywhere from 0.5-1.5 inches shorter then him.
the shredder said on 26/Nov/15
5'8.5 max now , possible 5'9.5 peak.

Looks 4 inches shorter min than Weathers {6-0} in that pic 5-8 sly. No more
bernie said on 23/Nov/15
I've watched some pics of the creed premiere.. man, in some shots Sly appears way shorter than Carl (ca. 6'0.75"), there's a huge gap between them both, i'd say this must be around 5 inches...
(And then there is still the question how much he gains from his shoes..?? I don't claim he's in huge lifts, but + 2 inches wouldn't surprise me...)
So whose Belief still is that Sly is or was close to 5'10", watch these pics, even 5'9" is too generous. Cannot be more than 5'7.5" - 5'7.75" these days..and was no more than 5'8" peak
That's how i see it
Frankie68 said on 22/Nov/15
Anybody see the "creed" premiere pics ...i always said sly is no taller than 5'7 ....in the pics of carl weathers u can clearly tell carl is a much bigger man than stallone ...much bigger ,, in body & height ...carl also is much bigger than michael b jordan whos height claim is 5'11 ...which i dont agree with either !!!

@ 5'11.5: Yes! That's why he is no taller than 5'7.5" Lewis Hamilton, and no taller than 5'8" max. J. Statham, shorter than ca. 5'9" Mel Gibson, not taller than his wife 5'8.5 J. Flavin, ca. 5 inches shorter than C. Weathers in an early training video, pretty same height as ca. 5'7" Sharon Stone etc. ...

Hey Rob,
I have just observed some pic of Alesso with Skrillex,who is listed here as 164 cm,and the 4 inch gap between the two is visible.Also,Alesso is shorter than the singer Theo Hurts who is estimated as 180 cm.In conclusion,the photo that i sent You of Stallone and Alesso,in wich Sly appears wearing normal shoes and not elevator ones,would put the Italian Stallion at a solid 173 cm? What do You think ?
5'11.5 said on 16/Nov/15
5'10 max for him
David said on 15/Nov/15
Hey Rob are these heights measured by including with wearing shoes or without wearing shoes
Editor Rob: always assuming someone would be without shoes
James B said on 15/Nov/15
Stallone still is and never was a short man at all, in fact a 5'9 guy like himself back in 70s would have been a legit average height. Sure compared to a huge guy like Dolph Lundgren who was a strong 6'4 he is tiny but wouldn't most men look small in comparison??

At 5'9 I am guessing there are plenty of occasions when you can feel on the taller side amongst some. Even me at only 5'7 can feel tall on occasion.
Jay said on 14/Nov/15

Rob,this is a picture of Stallone along with the dj Alesso.Alesso's height is listed as 5'.9"(175cm) on many websites and the gap between the two is quit significant.Is Sylvester Stallone 5'8" at this point or perhaps Alesso is taller than the height stated on the web?
Editor Rob: alesso claimed he was 182cm on his twitter. It's always possible he is over 175cm and like 177-8 range, but not looked at him.

You could say Hamilton is similar height to Elton John

And then look at one photograph off Sly with Elton.

@bandet: Why Stallone then is no taller than 5'7"-5'7.5" Lewis Hamilton? Lost two inches during the decades??
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/15
He wasn't under 5ft9 peak.
bandet said on 28/Oct/15
Looking at Sly when he was younger, to me, he's an easy 5ft9, perhaps a bit more. I think it's the same old adage. Male movies star action hero will be deemed short unless they are over 6ft. And any movie star less than 5.11 deemed tiny! Beats me why people even try to judge people's heights when so many get them wrong.
Ray said on 20/Oct/15
May as well shut this board down. Stalone has been all over the range of heights with his custom shoes. Unless he comes out on Conan with a stadometer..no one will ever know the truth. If anyone is looking to know his real height they should look at his movies in the 80's. Since then he has grown 5-6 inches.
cup1 said on 18/Oct/15
At certain sites and reported that the height of Sylvester Stallone is one meter and seventy...Would it be possible
dmeyer said on 13/Oct/15
Considering how he looked and looking at the shoe he had in movies like lock up and démolition man he could have had shoes That add 2.75in as he looked Solid 5'11
David said on 12/Oct/15
I think Stallone was at least five nine in his youth. I think you got that right Rob. I don't think he was more than five nine and a half, which is the height imdb gives for him. He was either five nine, or between five nine and five nine and a half I think. At the most five nine and a half, but he could have been a bit less. Five nine is a good estimate.

Custom wedged up footwear in Grudge Match.
BH said on 7/Oct/15
Best way to settle this height debate is for Rob to meet these action stars if possible like he does other celebrities.
Powerhouse said on 6/Oct/15
Its funny in grudge match he get completely towered over 6'0 MMA fighter Chael Sonnen. I doubt he was wearing lifts for that scene, because that be bad news for him. But in that same scene is has a comfortable 2 inches on Robert De Niro. Also in that film he pretty much is eye to eye with 5'11 Jon Bernthal, which is a bit confusing.
Brad said on 5/Oct/15
Diane Jessup, the G gone backwards plus more.
Diane Jessup said on 4/Oct/15
I worked with him on Assassins. He is SHORT! ABSOLUTELY no more than 5' 6 and that was with shoes on.
Andrea said on 3/Oct/15
So, Rob what do you think about that? Why should a 5'8-5'9 man say that Sly is very short in person, also considering that Sly himself probably had more shoes (not probably, but certainly : ) ) and better posture?
Btw, you can see the guy with Mika (on the right): Click Here That guy certainly isn't over 5'9!
[Editor Rob: sometimes it can be simply he had an idea of Sly being taller and then just is more shocked when he is 5ft 8-9 range...he was expecting a 5ft 10 or taller man from watching movies.

Maybe just the 1-2 inch difference was enough for him to be surprised enough to call him very short? ]
Brad said on 2/Oct/15
Hey Danimal, I needed that 5' 8.5" quote years ago versus the height expert: the G.
Andrea said on 1/Oct/15
Rob, today i was listening to an italian radio show and there was this famous italian singer who was talking about meeting Sly in a hotel last year... He said he was shocked when he saw him because he was really short in person and he always thought he was tall from watching his movies! Now, this guy isn't over 5'9... How can he say Sly is "very short", when they should be very close in height? Mmh..

I agree. He was 1 inch taller in his prime.

richie said on 22/Sep/15
Watch the opening scene in Copland where we see Stallone practically barefoot with actor Ray Liotta who is just 6', Liotta has between 3/4' on Stallone, based on that scene which appears accurate, i would say 5'8/9" maximum and his lifts would put him in the 5'11" range which is the height he can pull off in most of his movies....

why do you keep making the same post over and over again?
dmeyer said on 24/Sep/15
Sly is 173.5-4cm he looks smaller than 5-10 yrs back were he looked 174-5cm and 10+ years back 175cm

dmeyer said on 23/Sep/15
If you look at the whole at some point sly looks 4.5in while in 1.3-4in sneakers so about 6in shorter 190cm -14-15cm thats 176cm shoes on so about 5'8 tops 5'8.5
Liam said on 23/Sep/15
Quote from searching how tall is Sylvester Stallone wiki "Rocky (1976) is ranked #4 on the American film institute's 100 most inspiring movies of all time. The wax figure portraying Stallone as Rocky Balboa at the now defunct movie land wax museum (Buena Park, California) was 5'7 tall"
What are your thoughts on this Rob?

meezemaker said on 22/Sep/15
but if you watch that photo :

Just scroll down and you see :

Lundgren same height than Hasselhoff, more or less 193cm...Nearly Le banner with 190-191 so....and in rocky, Sly looks 20 cm shorter...Hard to follow. Sly stand nearly same height than Le banner.......we may never know the truth!
meezemaker said on 22/Sep/15
Just watch that and stop on 1:26 mn...Sly is just on the side of Jerome le Banner who is barfoot. He look an inch shorter. !!!Le banner is listed at 190 cm / 120kg, dont need to cheat, just watch K1 match of le Banner with a 205cm man. If sly were 170.5...he would have needed more than elevators to be close to the Le banner height. Even if we imagine Sly knows he gonna be filmed with kick boxers, he has to show off his best height...I cannot imagine sly barefoot at 170.5 wearing 5 inches elevators with the kind of running shoes or this man is a genius -:)

I would say 174 for Sly plus ingenuity

Just wondering what makes you think he's 5'9 he wears lifts and barely even looks the mark compared to other actors in his movies and also out of movies
[Editor Rob: I think the fact Stallone joked himself about wearing elevator shoes fighting Dolph Lundgren and the Italian shoemaker made him elevator boots is good evidence.]
bernie said on 21/Sep/15
...not to forget movies like Rambo & Demolition man...ca. 3.5 - 3.75 inch height boost from his footwear, but only 3-4 inches taller than supposedly 5'7" Sandra Bullock (whereat i think she's shorter.. more like 5'6"..)
andre said on 20/Sep/15
sly is 5ft7.5 barefoot today
Brad said on 20/Sep/15
He'll drag out the Rambo ramped up custom boots to give Pierce a taste of some Sly NYC Telly Savalas lingo squeezing his cheek at the same height: "Who loves ya baby?"
richie said on 19/Sep/15
Stallone is a weak 5'9" without shoes but appears a strong 5'11" in many of his movies due to lifts..however he is not a particularly small man, in fact average would be plausible ......
Frankie68 said on 18/Sep/15
@dan ,, u lost me when u said hes 5'9 ,,& 5'11 in customs ..u really think his elevator boots on give him 2inches ...lol,,,seriously bro ,, u must of not seen movies like cobra ,over the top & rocky ...id bet my life his giant boots give him 4inches easy !!'
bernie said on 17/Sep/15
@Dan: How can he be 5'9" when he is not taller than 5'8" Wesley Snipes? How can he be 5'9" when he is not taller than 5'7"-5'7.5" Lewis Hamilton?
Doesn't make sense..at least to me..
Frankie68 said on 16/Sep/15
Anybody seeing all the "creed" trailers should tell michael b jordan(5'11) is clearly taller than sly on his giant workboots hes wearing for CREED ...5'7 for sly !!!! Max
Dan said on 15/Sep/15
I'd definitely give Stallone a perfect flat 5-9. Rob is correct. All that 5-6 5-7 nonsense is stupid. In every old Stallone flick he easily gets to 5-11 with his custom shoes. 5-11, but disproportionately meaning he looks odd. Small physique with big shoes. He can't be 5-8
And definitely never 5-6 or 5-7. You're already going into Tom cruise and Ben stiller territory.
burby said on 15/Sep/15
If Pierce Brosnan does Expendables 4, we can expect the 4" from the Sly. He's weak 5'8" now....
Brad said on 11/Sep/15
Snipes is 5 foot 8.
GP said on 10/Sep/15
I will confirm Danimal's statement about Snipes at 5'8". I met him during E3 tour and he was in converse, nothing more than 173, possibly lower.
Danimal said on 9/Sep/15

I saw frank on tv last week. Hes around 5-10. Both are telling lies in truth.
177cmGuy said on 8/Sep/15
Anywhere from 5'8.75-5'9.25 is possible for Sly at peak height. Today it's harder to pin down the exact height because of footwear.
184.3cm (Night) said on 6/Sep/15
Cruise can pass for his 5'9 claim cause of lifts so its not really a good example. I would go as low as 5'8 flat for Stallone now but no more.
Rey said on 5/Sep/15
Why do some stars or superheroes get dinged for a 1/2" (in the negative) or more....and don't get me wrong -I love Stallone, but this myth of 5'8"-5'9" continues on this site. Cruise and Stallone see eye-to eye.

Monster customs for Sly with Antonio & Statham....the guy will not stop Munstering. 5' 8" flat.
Frankie68 said on 31/Aug/15
@DMeyer...nice pic ...i agree with u !!! & i no sly is shorter than both bandares & statham flatfooted ...not a doubt in my mind ...5'7 max for sly if hes lucky !!!
Dmeyer said on 25/Aug/15
Click Here , statham is 177-177.5cm shoes on banderas is about 5'8.25 plus 1.7in near 177.5cm shoes on sly seems 179cm shoes on thaugh his heels are max 3cm he must have a 1in lift inside that give him a 0.6in boost and Gets about 2in so 174cm plus near 5cm 179cm shoes
Jesse Stone said on 24/Aug/15
Rob, I think Robert Downey has already bigger wedged up shoes than Mr. Stallone! Stallone (for example on the red carped) hasn't got that much boost anymore like back then.... except at the premiere of Expendables lll. when he wanted to appear tall next to Schwarzenegger, Ford,...

Sly 5'7 and Arnold 5'10
[Editor Rob: that's worth adding to the top :)]



Lolllll
This shows how full of Kayfabe BS Hogan is, himself 6´7" (you can see his eyes lying when he talks about the measurement), Andre 685-690lbs and near 7´3" and later just under 7ft,
then Stallone 5´6"-5´7" ................ Show me Hogan 12-13" taller than Stallone with Hogan not standing on a box!!!!!


Peak Eveningheights:

Andre 6´11"
Hogan 6´5.25"
Stallone 5´8.75"
TJ said on 18/Aug/15
Ali, do you really regard Hogan's comments as some kind of definitive proof that should make Rob "finally list him for his real height"?. Ever thought that a man as big as Hogan was at the time of Rocky III would actually suck at figuring out exactly how tall a man of average height was?

Triplescrew said on 11/Aug/15
@NBAer

You've got extremely long arms for your height, in fact your proportions are similar to Chris Paul's. For a non-athlete (I guess he can be considered a fake one) Sly has insanely long arms if his wingspan is really 6'2".
bernie said on 11/Aug/15
@ MKJoP: Still miss your comment to the pic with L. Hamilton...??!! When Sly is 5´10" - 5´10.75" as you said, then it must sound like: L. Hamilton is not the 171cm-172cm, he is about 6 foot tall.. or something.. right!? Or L. Hamilton has like 4 iches lifts..

6'0 in his biggest lift

Dmeyer said on 2/Aug/15
Click Here , interesting pic sly has maybe 0.25in posture extra arnie is about 5'11.5 with those solid 3cm shoes he is about 184.5cm just about 6ft 0.75 yet sly look in the strong 4cm smaller maybe 4.5cm if looking at head top and considering arnie has low eye level so sly is about 5'10.5-10.75 with those shoes on wich looks similar to dons that will give 2in range so close to 5'8.75 witout as this was a few yrs back it matches the 5'8.5 listing , he has max 0.8-0.9in more shoes than arnie so about 2.75 smaller
Jesse Stone said on 1/Aug/15
Some can really look like Rob's 3.8 inchers Click Here Click Here

Elevators or in some lifts without doubt.
Frankie68 said on 1/Aug/15
My take is ( especially in his younger days -the 80's or 90's ) when his boots/ footwear was beyond embarrassing.....to possibly be 5'10 on a mountain of shoe ... How can he possibly be 5'8 or 5' 9 flatfooted even in his younger days ....its impossible ...his boots in movies like rocky ,,cobra ,, over the top & so on gave him incredible height enhancement ...theres no way anybody could wear his footwear & be only an inch or 2 shorter flatfooted .... 5'7 max young or old if hes lucky !!!
weirdo said on 31/Jul/15
I saw him in 1995...I'm 5"10 and he looked same with me!...he probably shrunked around an inch!
Alex said on 31/Jul/15
Stallone is barely 5'8 flat If that nowadays
Jesse Stone said on 30/Jul/15
I like the picture too, yes he is short...but you could see this in the barefoot scene in "The Specialist" too, when he is a bit shorter than 5'8 - 5'8.5 Sharon Stone.
But especially in that movie, Stallone is a good actor and if he's short or not I like him. This is it.

But anyway, another good pic: He is slipping out of his shoe Click Here
