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."

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...

His footwear including lifts has never Been over 2.5-2.75in , and Many Times just 1.3-2in and yet pulled off near 5'11 Many Times


I really think this munster customs gave him 3.5-4" , the host is legit 6´3"
look how unrealistic long his legs look when he appears and how he walks down the stairs

I agree Sly has lost height. I would say he is 5'8-5'8.5 today.
Junior31 says on 1/Mar/15
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
When you guys start talking about 1/8th of height I immediately stop reading. Most ppl couldn't tell .5 an inch let alone .125

C'mon now

Just to remind people of how tall he appeared by Ryan Lochte:

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...
Brad says on 25/Feb/15
Best guess for Sly's custom made award winning height increasing whoppers: Rocky Balboa premiere Munsters, those things Karloff or Gwynne could have used. Rocky Academy Award footwear were heeled wedged up monsters, they's win.
Frankie68 says on 25/Feb/15
@arthur...hes 5'7 and 3/4 ....u win...u have 3 yrs experience....just a piece of advice...posting pics of sly with arnold when slys footwear isnt visible....and sly looks very short....stating that u know hes "liftless"....just shows your ignorance.... Furthermore,,,i think more people on this site,,,including rob,,,dont believe sly 5'9 or 5'10...like u choose to believe...and dont talk for other people with an opinion of me ,,,,that makes u look more ignorant than u already are....if u think hes 5'8 fine,,,,,keep me outa your mouth..

Frankie68@ Frankie you are a nosense person everyone here knows that.Most of us not agree with you they agree with me.You are the only ıgnorant person claiming sly is 5ft7.Noone in here claims that.Only some wannabe guest people in celebheights will claim 5ft7 for Sly.I have 3 years of experience in this site.
Repeating 5ft7 wont make it right.You can say 5ft7 anytime but lots of intelligent and experienced people will never believe it.Be happy with your 5ft6/5ft7 height.But Sly is taller than you.Thats the real truth.
Arthur says on 25/Feb/15
Frankie68@ What are you talking about? bernie also thinks sly is 5ft7.75 nowadays.He never said sly is 5ft7.You are the only absurd person claiming Sly is 5ft7.Claim that 10-15 years later than you will be right.Once again most of people in celebheights thinks Sly was beetween 5ft8 to 5ft9 in his peak.You dont seem to know much about height.You are downgrading everyone to fit your agenda.I dont wanna be rude but There are 2 ignorant person in celebheights

1-MJKOP ''Sly is 5ft10 I saw him years ago he is taller than my brother''
2-FRANKİE 68 ''Sly is 5ft7 he always wears 5inch shoes''

Never anything over 5' 7 barefoot, a weak 5' 7 peak, 5' 6.5 nowadays.

@parker ...my guess is that sly would be closer in height to him without his shoes on....sly would be 3 inches shorter ...minimum ...flatfooted...
Arthur says on 23/Feb/15
bernie@ I think same as you he is 5ft8 nowadays.He was probably 5ft9 in his prime but nowadays he is beetween 5f7.75_5ft8 area.
bernie says on 22/Feb/15
@Arthur - the "liftless Sly" here beside 5'11" Arnie is miles away from 5'9" and needless to say lightyears away from 5'10" (which some few peolpe still claim..)
I'd say 5'8" best, if that.. what do you think?
Danimal says on 21/Feb/15
Brad says on 16/Feb/15
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.
joelj says on 21/Feb/15
Nope, stone is 5' 6.5" without heels

Thats a good pic Parker, i would guess Jason and Snipes edge Sly out in that pic if he didnt have so much hair. Lutz is maybe 4 in taller.

Arthur says on 20/Feb/15
Dont mind Frankie he is not from this planet.He is living in his own fantasy world.I cant understand why some people claiming Sly is 5ft7 or 5ft10.Its very sure Sly is in the 5ft8 to 5ft9 area anything below or above are garbage facts.
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.]
Brad says on 19/Feb/15
Stallone is in typical custom made elevator footwear with DeNiro
Frankie68 says on 19/Feb/15
@parker...I get what u say....look how thick Sly's shoes are....deniro wearing flimsy ,,very ordinary shoes....deniro would be taller if there booth flat footed....even in dress shoes Sly's shoes are vey thick ...deniro doesn't care how tall he looks....I think there both under 5'8.... I think there very ordinary sized men....
184.3cm says on 19/Feb/15
@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
If Stallone is 5'7 DeNiro is not more than 5'6.

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-??
Frankie68 says on 16/Feb/15
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.
MJKoP says on 13/Feb/15

That's because he 1000 percent IS.

shower scene in the specialist, has ca. 1 inch on 5'7" S.Stone (thats what i see). So my estimation was and is 5'7.75"-5'8"max. without shoes.

@Jesse
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.

@bernie...i'll agree ...i 'll give her 5'7....and that put sly at the same height...he looked no taller than her....(shower scene)....all im sayin is for years people in hollywood claim hes not as tall as he appears....it started from somewhere...
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.

5ft8 nowadays

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"

Watch Rocky 3 and note just prior to the final fight, Stallone is standing with Weathers who was a legit 6'1", Stallone is wearing flipflops with no lifts, Weathers has no more than 3 inches on him, fact.....During his peak years Stallone was on or around the 5'10" mark, no question, he may have lost an inch as we all lose a fraction as we age but during the 80's he was 5'10"
Feankie68 says on 6/Feb/15
@arthur...whos to say theres no wedge in his sneakers with flavin in the pic...you......a lift wearer is always a lift wearer...its part of his insecurity......i'll file it under laughable...along with 5'8 sharon stone...show me a pic were she looks 5'11 or 6' ...cause by your own foolish words sly is 5'8 or 5'9 and with his lifts ,,,youve argued with me hes 5'11 or even 6'....so sharon stone must be near 6' in heels as well...since you sware shes 5'8 as well.......cant wait for your answer....
Junior31 says on 5/Feb/15
I can't help but think how most people would never be able to tell a quarter of inch difference without a stadometer

Rob do you believe that the taller someone is the harder it is to say there.1/8ths and 1/4 of an inch??????
[Editor Rob: for anybody it is hard to say 1/4 inches, but sometimes a 1/4 or 3/4 inch could be given sometimes as a representation of a range - like say 5ft 9.25, the person could look anywhere in 5ft 9 - 9.5 range.]

Arthur says on 5/Feb/15
184.3cm@ Very nice photo.Sly clearly looks 5ft9 in this photo without lifts.
Lets say this photo was taken years ago, Sly is clearly around 5ft8 nowadays.

@arthur ...y do we need to worry about finding "good" pics of sly bare foot...seems your the only one here so worried about it....i got one for ya..(barefoot)....go watch the specialist...(shower scene) ...very similiar in height to 5'5 sharon stone...he barely cleared her height...barely...and thats putting it mild...a 5'8,5'9 man would have givin a clearer height difference...he was eye to eye with her....

What exactly are portman's, what do they look like?
Jesse Stone says on 4/Feb/15
@Danmial: Well, actually I bought them cause I've been curious. Reading about the effect of insoles and elevator shoes all the time... You know I just went out to see how it really is to wear some sort of them. And you are right, I'm taller than Mr. Stallone has ever been and about average.

Jesse.
Arthur says on 4/Feb/15
Some people here posting terrible barefoot pictures of Sly with bad posture and bad angle.I can say this is not the case.We need to find good barefoot pictures of Sly to guess the reality.
Arthur says on 4/Feb/15
Frankie68@ Frank I like you personally, the real truth is we will never know
Slys real height without measuring him or seeing him barefoot.We can only guess it.I dont care the stallones height.He can be anywhere beetween 5ft7 to 5ft9.5.
There is no shame of being in any height really.I repeat my opinion orderly because this is a height site.İn my daily life I dont think about it so often.
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
confusing people with wearing lifts and elevator shoes.To sum up I thank the KİNG Rob Paul for such a great site and I thank all the people in here for their opinions.

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
G should just round up and claim 5'7" (which isn't a bad height at all). I can understand why somebody wouldn't want to include the '.5"' at the end of their height.

Brad says on 3/Feb/15
You believe the G? As of '15 he's on another site saying he is 5' 8" in that picture when he's 5' 6.5" tops. Sly has the 3" difference with a wedge thrust. Sly is weak 5' 8" in '15.

G said Sly has normal footwear in this photo. G also says he can spot shoe lifts immediately.So Sly has normal footwear in this photo.There are cleanly 2inch difference in this photo. So Sly was 5ft9 15 years ago in his peak.
Nowadays he is around 5ft8.Rob whats your thoughts on that ?

@arthur...furthermore i actually think it proves my point...imagine how short he is without his lifts on...that pic is from "daylight" ...ive seen that pic before....he has loaded boots on with docker pants ...its from daylight...hes no taller than that guy...if hes lucky
Frankie68 says on 31/Jan/15
@arthur...seen the pic...yeah sly looks taller...cause he has shoe lifts on....hes probably the same height....an intelligent observer of height like yourself should know that...show me sly barefoot next to him...than we can talk...and u claim i dont make sense...lol...i'll file this under laughable like u do...

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.

@TJ: relating to the pic jesse Stone posted recently: You can clearly see Arnie has ca. 2.5 inches on Sly. 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
Sly getting way more than 2.5 inches in the pic with armold...2.5 is just his heel....arnold would be towering over him...look how small slys hips /legs are compared to arnold....and the most important thing that everyone misses...knee height...how could his knee height be that close to arnolds yet appear way shorter....its cause of inner shoe lifts...that y......@arthur ...see im an expert...lol
Frankie68 says on 26/Jan/15
@arthur...it dont take an expert to know hes no more than 5'7....
bernie says on 25/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
Arthur says on 24/Jan/15
Frankie@ I told you millions of times 4inch shoes wont give you 4inch in reality.
They give 2.5-2.6 inch at most.I reccomend you to do a little search on this site.
Check out the elevator shoes and shoe lifts articles.You got a lot to learn If you want to be a height expert like Rob Paul.
Frankie68 says on 24/Jan/15
There u got it Jesse stone....now take those 4inch plus boots off him...and u'll see how small he is.....Arnold would be towering over him.....go find the "rocky 1" pic of sly and Burt young outside the meat place...he looks taller than sly....idk how to post pics here.....than by rocky 2.

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!!!!!!!

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

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?

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

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.

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

Do you mean bear foot, or bare foot? Because if Stallone had bear feet that might explain why we all think he's wearing lifts all the time ;-). Just joking of course.

For the record,,when i post that sly is 5'7...i mean bear foot...not in shoelifts...im aware of how tall he appears,,.,but its mathematically impossible for anyone in 4inch plus to appear 5'10 and than say that person is 5'8 flat footed....and there is plenty of pics of him that are indicative of a 5'7 size giving how he wears such extreme footwear....

Frankie Sly can easily appear 5ft11.5 and close to 6ft.He isnt 5ft7.
He is at least 5ft7.75 nowadays. Click Here
He will be 5ft7 when he is 80-85 years old.He never appeared as short as 5ft7.

I'd say he's 5'7.5" these days. Was 5'8.5" in his youth though.
Frankie68 says on 17/Jan/15
Parker...I guarantee u in that pic of sly,,with statham/bandares/snipes.....Sly's shoes are the highest....and if he took them off,,,,he'd def be the shortest........go watch movies like cobra,,,over the top,,,,he got monsters on in over the top and still shorter than a not very tall Robert loggia....(who's 5'10).....cobra as well....short next to brigette in his giant boots...5'7 is fair in my book.... .hes also shorter than deniro barefoot as well.....he had wedged up boxing shoes on only to appear slightly taller than deniro in grudge match......I like sly like everyone else on this sight does.....but he's short...if he wasn't so short he wouldn't were the shoes and lifts that he does,,,,go watch some old kojak too.....way shorter than Telly as savalas.....
Parker says on 17/Jan/15
5'6 for Stallone is laughable. His wife will be standing close to 6' in this footwear. The guy is 5'8/5'9

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. Kinda sad I have to explain this but we have no lives debating over a 1/2" on a site, I know I don't. 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.

Sly is 5'7 flat footed ....he's not 5'8,5'9,,or 5'10.....he'd be 6'0 with his lifts on if that were the case....he was still 2inches shorter than brigette neislen in cobra ,,,where he had 4inch plus boots on...it's simple math....not rocket science

Stallone filmed part of Demolition Man where I used to work. I literally stood behind his right shoulder and was able see over his shoulder, looking down at a monitor on a table showing what they had just filmed.

I'm only 5' 1". And I could look down over his shoulder. How tall can he be?

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.

[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.]

Knock .5" off both his peak and current height and you've got it.

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..

Rob, I just saw your opinion on Stars who claim their height in footwear on C. Thomas Howell's site. I toally agree with you. But think about it: Has Stallone ever said the height he has claimed would be barefoot? I don't think so. Maybe he always claimed his "5'10" with shoes and lifts.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rob. What is your take on these photos? Please will other posters comment on these pics I have found Again This is the case cracker in the argument
Height182 says on 16/Dec/14
So Rob, You really think Slys only lost 1cm?
[Editor Rob: half inch yes. For a man in his 60's he still did a helluva lot of intensive work last 6-7 years, I think within next 2-3 years we might be seeing a sly who will start to look barely even 5ft 8.]

Sly is about the same as 5ft8.5 Graham norton. Graham norton is 5ft8.5.

Here we have Stallone THIS year in a video with 5'8" Graham Norton (talk show host). NO WAY is Stallone taller than him, let alone even the same height as him. They stand right next to each other at 13:00 and I'm sure Stallone came packing that day too (never leaves home without them). In other words, Stallone is UNDER 5'8": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aU_1ZgiiDkI

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

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