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!", although that might be a bit of an exaggeration.

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."

Cue comments of folks saying: "I can't believe this guy doesn't know who Rob is? Geesh! He runs the website!" Also - Celebheights 188: Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong. You obviously never met him. Stop it, just stop it. Man is under 5'9" barefoot. Period. Just.....period!
Celebheights 188 CM says on 1/Oct/14

@arthur....sly boxing shoes have lifts in them....
Junior31 says on 30/Sep/14
Rob what do u think a fellow celeb thinks when from one week to the next they stand next to sly and see him morph in height. Do you think he talks to them about it lol
[Editor Rob: sometimes he just catches a break from photographers. Like the Master of Disguise, Sly is a Master of Height - and the odd 20 dollar note in a photographers pocket helping him look tall? You never know!]
H50 says on 30/Sep/14
Arthur: no, Arthur, no. The reality you refer to is this; you are a grown man going on about Rob. I never said anything about having firm knowledge one way or the other as to this person's height. I thought this site was about Stallone? Honestly, I have no idea who Rob is. I know I don't care what his height is. For some reason you do. I mean, you REALLY do. And that is....strange. BTW: Stallone is under 5'9". Confirmed after meeting him in 89 and 2005.
Arthur says on 30/Sep/14
Thanks Rob:)
Arthur says on 30/Sep/14
Here is sly without his lifts with Milo Ventimigla.They are exactly same height.

I am thinking of buying some shoes from Sly.:)
Arthur says on 30/Sep/14
Rob are you thinking posting a new video without socks anyday?There are some rumours you are 5ft7 :)
[Editor Rob: of course, whilst moderating comments today I did one for you Click Here.]
Arthur says on 30/Sep/14
H50:) What I understand from you are saying is Rob has lifts in his socks
So he is 5ft7.5 in reality.So only his physician knows his real height without socks:)Continue to live in your fantasy world.What will you do If Rob posts a new height video measuring himself without socks.I am pretty sure he will measure himself 5ft8.2 again.Please have some reality.
184.3cm says on 30/Sep/14
Judging by Milo Ventimigla's page he has picked up some tricks from the old master.
FanRocky says on 29/Sep/14
He was 1.76 cm watch the Rocky movies please. But he is now 1.75 or under that.
Clay says on 29/Sep/14
Arthur says on 28/Sep/14
Sly with milo ventimigla :) Sly did his job again:) Click Here

Sly can reach 5'11-6'0 in his greatest lifts, so it rules out under 5'8'' anyways.
H50 says on 29/Sep/14
Arthur: .2! Really! What? Are you Rob's physician or just very close? How would you know that? Look, man: strong and weak are lazy English. Either say just under or just under or exactly. Like Stallone- best estimates by those who've seen him-like me-estimate just under 5'9". Most likely. Any exact guess is known omly by him and his doctors. As to your fascination with Rob....well....
Arthur says on 28/Sep/14

Never woke up close to 5'10". Ever. Keep trying.
Arthur says on 28/Sep/14
H50:How can you say stop saying strong. I have never seen Rob measured less than
5'8.2"
H50 says on 27/Sep/14
Arthur: as was stated rosebench, stop saying 'strong'. Either someone is or is not 5'8". Geesh.
176,2Tunman says on 27/Sep/14
Unlikely Danimal.Today he still looks a solid 5'8 at worse.173-4 is arguable but no less.In his youth he woke up close to 5'10.
Typical example of an average man,a genuine 5'9 at peak is perfect.
Arthur says on 25/Sep/14
There are some people in this site saying Rob is a weak 5ft8.This is bull****.
Rob is a strong 5ft8 and he can easily claim 5ft8.5.He is one of the most unassuming person I have ever seen opposite compared to Big G :)
[Editor Rob: I class myself as a legit 5ft 8, that is all.]
Danimal says on 24/Sep/14
I recently said I thought Stallone was no taller than 5'7 3/4" today. I'd like to change that to 5'7.5" today. In his youth, he could have woken up at 5'8.5" and maybe even 5'8 3/4" at the very most, but today at almost 70 years old, I think he wakes up at max 5'8" and stands around 5'7.5" by nightfall.
Height181 says on 24/Sep/14
You have to give it to Sly though. Even though he was a short/average height man, He always used his tricks to look tall and succeeded most of the time. This guy wasn't going to let life make him look short. I give him respect for that Lol. A true height master. If I used tips from Sly I could end up looking close to 6'4'', when I am just over 5'11''. Sly needs to release a book on this already. A lot of people think Sly is a villain like G, when really Sly is a hero. He is a hero to all the short people.
Realist says on 24/Sep/14
The crap about 5'9 and below being action stars is annoying me. Height does not play a role in personality and awesome body. There have been too many cases to prove the height factor wrong.
Clay says on 23/Sep/14
lelman says on 19/Sep/14
They will get jokes about it sure, but many of these people talk about him as if he is some kind of midget.

My old boss at a construction job said he saw him at the airport and kept going on about how he was 'tiny', no lifts that day clearly.
Arthur says on 22/Sep/14
Height 181 cm of course sly had lifts in his shoes he looks only 1.5 inch taller
than 169cm justin bieber.172-173cm spot on for him.Poor sly he is maybe shorter than Rob nowadays. :)
Danimal says on 22/Sep/14
I meant to type that he's never seen 5'9".
Danimal says on 22/Sep/14
I give Stallone 172cm (5'7 3/4") today and that's being generous. Was 173-174 in his younger days and no more than than. He has never seen 5'8". MAYBE one morning in his prime he was able to stretch out to 5'8 3/4", but the most mornings he was 5'8.5" and 5'8" at night. Today, at almost 70 years of age, he's max 5'7 3/4".
Frankie68 says on 21/Sep/14
@lelman.....how about the idea that sly isn't 5'9......more like 5'7......
Frankie68 says on 21/Sep/14
@arthur....u know what's the craziest about your justin beiber pic......I'm sure sly has lifts in his shoes....lol...he's probably shorter than beiber......it certainly wouldn't surprise me....

@Arthur: LOL haha
Arthur says on 21/Sep/14
Explain this :) Click Here
james says on 20/Sep/14
LOL Stallone definatly has issues with his height 5'10 ? Really now he's 5'9" with ordinary sneakers on 5'8" barefoot
Rey says on 20/Sep/14
This is the one that gets me. I would bet the house that he is not even five-eight in flat feet. I opened his limo door at Planet Hollywood. You could hear the silent gasp. One day....the facts cannot be ignored.
SHAHROOZ says on 20/Sep/14
OH...174cm is thesedays height or his youth height?
lelman says on 19/Sep/14
They will get jokes about it sure, but many of these people talk about him as if he is some kind of midget.
James B says on 19/Sep/14
5'9 is not short for a man. Sly actually was a fraction over average height for his generation.

For a young person sly would be a bit under average but not really short.
burby says on 19/Sep/14
Rob would edge Sly out in 2014.
Brad says on 18/Sep/14
Sly & Rob are the same height: 5 feet 8 now.
Clay says on 18/Sep/14
Plenty of 5'9'' men will take shots about being short.
Jeremy says on 18/Sep/14
Rob there is a chance sly dipped 176 cm in morning in his prime?
lelman says on 18/Sep/14
Have you ever heard a 5ft 9 man get so much flack for being short? It's like Tom Cruise, he may be below average height but people act as if he is 5ft 4. Is this because they're both so outwardly insecure about it and wear obvious boosters? Everybody who has worked with Sly says he is short, that is bizarre for a 5ft 9 man.

Would you entertain the idea that he might have been below 5ft 9 in his prime? Or was it his lifts that (ironically) made him appear smaller to everyone? Or did they just expect Rambo to be 6ft 4?

I mean Van Damme is supposedly only a quarter inch taller than him, and even he called him short. It just doesn't add up, to me.
Dmeyer says on 18/Sep/14
I think sly is steel 1cm taller than rob Like 174-174.2cm
Danimal says on 17/Sep/14
Brad says on 15/Sep/14
5' 11" is like more than Stallone's '78 Playboy whopper.....the poor guy is about to go below 5' 8" in '15.

So you think Stallone and Rob would be identical height today Brad?
Sonia says on 16/Sep/14
5 feet 11? Who is this G person?
BigViking says on 16/Sep/14
Quote Glenn: "Stallone can look 5-10 to 6-2 depending on what pic one is looking at.most claim he's 5-8.he's a know lift wearer.he's claimed 5-10, 5-10.5, and 5-10.75.and he's all those.people are tallest when they wake.so he's 5-11 in his prime or still is.he always seems a few inches taller than me"...

A "few inches" is 2 inches. So Glenn is basically saying now that he himself is 5-9 (since Stallone is according to Glenn 5-11). HILARIOUS!
[Editor Rob: give G a break, he's only 1 foot tall after all.]
burby says on 15/Sep/14
Banderas 5'10"? Gibson 5'10" to 5'11"? The background singers need to help the Notorious L.G.C. on dis one.....
Brad says on 15/Sep/14
5' 11" is like more than Stallone's '78 Playboy whopper.....the poor guy is about to go below 5' 8" in '15.
Arch Stanton says on 14/Sep/14
LMAO @ "Stallone can look 5-10 to 6-2 depending on what pic one is looking at."
Kev From Brooklyn says on 13/Sep/14
I seen Glenn at a Paul Stanley book signing, he was 5' 6" plus big boots like with Natalie, and chubby. 5 feet 11 for Stallone must help his height cause.
Kourosh177cm says on 13/Sep/14
rob , glen has stallone at 5'11 on his instagram :P
Click Here
i believe glen would guess me at 6'0 if i take a picture with him.
[Editor Rob: the only problem is big Kellan lutz with these guys...]
Brad says on 13/Sep/14
6-10 hours up from 3 P.M. Bronx wake-up. Big bag, a borough away, 200 pounds on miles of streets. The 5' 7" goes 5' 6.5" and under. I met my astronaut. 5' 8.5" peak. That old poolside Youtube is the shortest he's ever looked.
kyuss says on 13/Sep/14
In shoes 5-11 approx,without 5-8
Azzeal says on 13/Sep/14
I swear to god sylvester is 1.77 cm on barefoot
Danimal says on 12/Sep/14
Heylo says on 11/Sep/14
I honestly don't think he look like he would be 5'9 barefoot. I'm even hesitating on 5'9 in his peak. I would guess him at 173-174. He always have shoes that seem to allow height increasing material to be packed in. He could get to almost 5'11 in lifts.

I could be wrong though cause i haven't analyzed him so much. Can someone post photos that are fairly good evidence of him being 5'9 in his peak?

You're late to the game, but people on here have been posting photos for 10 years now (myself included).
Brad says on 12/Sep/14
Wear Portmans, stand on toes, stand on bag of records, say "I've met him 21 times, who have you met, yer postman?", sleep in a Volvo for 9 hours before being measured. Sal (head out of window) "fries too". Oops, Sly forum, he's a weak 5' 8" in '14.
[Editor Rob: the hospitals named their portable beds after G.
Gurney, noun...a device used to wheel autograph dealers around NY, so they are always at their morning height for photos.]
Brad says on 12/Sep/14
Is it true the Gster is on another height site saying he is 5' 8" but is 5' 6.5" (if that) in his pictures 6 hours after leaving The Bronx at 5' 7"?
[Editor Rob:
Tricks a height magician might use to look taller on the streets:
levitate on one foot.
Stand on the higher side of the pavement.
When the person is about to take the photo jump in the air.
Wear munsters.
Throw a 20 bux on the ground and catch the celebrity starting to bend down to pick it up.]

176,2Tunman says on 10/Sep/14
Hey,in fact I didn't pay attention to the new listing.So finally Sly is brought to 5'8.5?that seems more reasonable for his late 60's,he did quite well compared to other action movie stars like Arnie or Lundgren.
176,2Tunman says on 10/Sep/14
Definitely Sly was like 175 or 175,5 at peak,do you think he's the perfect representation of a legit 5'9?In the end that's one of very few cases where we could only argue about a very small fraction over or under the mark like 3-4mm.
Sonia says on 10/Sep/14
Portman boots didn't make him look 5'8" with a shrimp like Natalie.
Brad says on 10/Sep/14
Sly's lost very little in 40 years. 10 P.M. the G Ported would be the same height as a 5' 8"er.
Brad says on 10/Sep/14
Imagine the G saying he was in sneakers with little height gain with Natalie and somebody had this photo in their pocket. He'd leave the site....but then again he did. Sal, this Volvo bed is killer. I'm sure those Porties were in other shots. Frank probably helped out Sly in flats...those Sly boots almost go str8 up.
[Editor Rob: the Portman's could be very close to 2 inches, but certainly it helps boost your height. If G was in Portman's and I was in converse there wouldn't be much between us...you can then get away with looking nearer 5ft 8.]
the shredder says on 9/Sep/14
To be fair those portmans are just 1.8 biker boots.
[Editor Rob: not according to Glenn's logic.

He said converse give an inch, doc martins nearly 2. Biker boots must be 2.5 then ;)

Nah, it is true they are a style that are just under the 2 inches.]
Dmeyer says on 9/Sep/14
Rob when Will sly drop réal height Like 0.75-1.25in loss
[Editor Rob: another 5 years and ifhe continues trying action roles this is going to take it's toll.]
Andrea says on 9/Sep/14
I didn't know Sly had a "famous" brother... There are some pics where they can look similar and others where Frank has 1-1.5 inch on him... I guess it depends on what shoes he decides to wear when goes out, though. Dmeyer, in that pic Frank is gaining some height because he's standing closer to the camera, so that's not much "useful"...
Editor Rob says on 9/Sep/14
Here were those Portman's:

Brad says on 8/Sep/14
Sly's wedges are killer with Frank.
Clay says on 8/Sep/14
Sly is 5'10.5...with 2 inches worth of shoe under his feet. :) He was in some heavy duty lifts next to 6'2.5 The Rock there.
Dmeyer says on 8/Sep/14
Click Here , more 174cm near 179cm bro
Andrea says on 8/Sep/14
Dmeyer, it's called perspective xD
He doesn't look 5'11.25 next to Statham, they look similar but Sly is gaining some height in that shot against Jason... In the few shots i've seen, Sly can look 3-3.5 inches shorter than Kellan Lutz, not considering the footwear. Now, Rob said Kellan is similar to Alex in person, so Sly really does look 5'8.5 at best next to him...
Zach says on 8/Sep/14
Rob, how do you decide which pictures to put up?
[Editor Rob: just from what I am able (like from the pr photos website), or any which have a 'creative commons' license.]
Dmeyer says on 8/Sep/14
Rob i see no more the 0.5cm more shoes 2 vs 2.5cm
[Editor Rob: I think there could be near 1cm.]
miko says on 8/Sep/14
I suspect its just a matter of time before Sly has a height breakdown. He's pushing 70, and he's held onto his height very well. It will be interesting to see if he starts dropping down into the 5'7 range in the next decade.
Dmeyer says on 7/Sep/14

Can someone explain to me what ''Portmans'' and ''Munsters'' are? Lol. I want to know..
[Editor Rob: Portman's are a pair of motorbike boots that G used to wear. He wore them when he was eying up Natalie Portman. He may have worn them a lot more than he said. He never mentioned what footwear he had until another shot of him appeared...

In fact I had an email from a famous Italian shoemaker a while ago and he said 'I made him 3.5 inches taller on the streets of New York! But, he never ever paid me in cash. Always autogrammes. One time he handed me an Elvis Presley signed picture as payment. Unbelievable I thought, I've hit the jackpot, this is worth 5 times what his shoes cost. Only problem? It was in blue sharpie :('

But in all seriousness, if I go by G's own claim that converse give an inch and doc martin's near 2 inches, then by this rational, Portman's must give 3 inches*



*ok not really, maybe 1.8-9 inches.

Danimal says on 5/Sep/14
Andrea says on 4/Sep/14
Well, this video is from 2008, so Sly was still at his "peak" of 5'9, according to your listing.

Not many 62 year old men are still at their "peak" Andrea.
Jesse Stone says on 5/Sep/14
In the video his shoes have got thick soles (3cm - 4cm). With lifts inside the entire footwear can give him about 8 cm ( 3 inches)!
Andrea says on 5/Sep/14
Height81, i'm italian too. He can look near 175 in tv but to be fair i wouldnt put him over 173-174! His claim of 180 is quite hilarious. I remember him next to a 189-190 actor where he could look nearer 170 than 175 but i guess his posture isnt immaculate at times...
Height181 says on 5/Sep/14
If I took height tips from Sly, I could end up maybe looking 6'4''! Sly is a sly guy. Almost as sly as G.
Dmeyer says on 5/Sep/14
S'y has big shoes that could give 2.5-2.75 if they have lift inside and yet look barely taller the tv presentater could be 175
THE REAL ANNONYMOUS says on 4/Sep/14
Jesus Those brown boots look like they were packed with some huge lifts. Its the clip that Andrea posted that im talking about.
Rob what do you think Sly is packing in those boots??
[Editor Rob: it's hard to tell, he could have an extra inch but I can't see it as clear.]
Nolifts81 says on 4/Sep/14
Andrea- The presenter is Italian, like me,his name is Carlo Conti I've seen him a lot of times and is no less than 175cm. Sly had big lifts in his shoes that evening

@andrea.....his boots look 4inches easily......he got the whoppers on big time....
Andrea says on 4/Sep/14
Well, this video is from 2008, so Sly was still at his "peak" of 5'9, according to your listing. With those things he has on the feet, how tall can he look? Like a 5'10 man? This guy dared to claim 180 in an interview sometime ago! And to be fair, i really thought he could appear anywhere between 5'8 and 5'9 on tv! 171-172 would be quite a shock!
Here he is with an italian guy i showed you in the past with Djokovic and Benigni:
Click Here
That guy claims 183 but he does look closer to 180...
You rule out 173-174?
[Editor Rob: if Sly has an extra inch in his footwear then maybe the guy could be in that 173-4 range. It's too hard to tell in that clip though.]

Jesse Stone says on 3/Sep/14
@Frankie68

If you say so.. I have never seen him in real life. But it's true his outsized shoes say a lot!
Danimal says on 3/Sep/14
Greg says on 27/Aug/14
He was a tadd shorter than 5'8" Burt Young in the 1976 movie "Rocky"
Click Here

And Stallone was in heels during the majority of Rocky, Rocky 2 and so on. Also, it's been said that Burt Young was even 5'7".
Frankie68 says on 2/Sep/14
Sly is 5'7....in the morning ,,,noon..and night...i dont care what anyone says....he has to wear monster shoes just to pull off 5'9 or 5'10....
Jesse Stone says on 2/Sep/14
Saw The Expendables III yesterday. His shoes are probably not the same as the ones from the other actors. But he still seem to be shorter or as tall as Snipes, Statham, Gibson (at the end-fight-scene), and a bit taller than Banderas. Clearly shorter than Schwarzenegger and Ford.

I don't know but my hunch is he's (now in 2014) around 5'8 - 5'8 1/2. And maybe reatched 5'9 at peak in his youth.
Brad says on 1/Sep/14
Keep in mind his footwear is sliced and diced and refitted with wedge....he fools everybody.
Jesse Stone says on 1/Sep/14
@Junior31: Yeah, this is a working theory.I was damn surprised about these shoes, indeed!
Junior31 says on 1/Sep/14
Jesse Stone says on 31/Aug/14
Look at this. Pretty obvious...

Unbelievable. Why would a person worth 9 FIGURES wear a disaster of a shoe like that? Why because it makes him taller. For him to wear something so ugly to be taller says a lot about his height as well as his height complex. Looks similar to the horrendous shoes he wore in muscle beach back in the day with Colombo and Arnold.

When he's with guys within 2 inches of his real height he will wear a slight lift. When he's with tall guys the sky is the limit no pun intended.

In 1975 he woke up at 5'9 and went to bed 5'8 and change
In 2014 he wakes up 5'8 and change and dips to a hair under

He wears lifts because a 5'8 action star in hollywood just won't cut it

I think if rob and sky stood face to face barefoot today upon waking rob is a hair taller.
Dmeyer says on 31/Aug/14
I have watched sly shoes over the years , he some times wears regular 1inchers other Times regular thick shoes 1.2-1.4in type , some Times cowboy type 1.5-1.8in , some times élévators in the 2.25in type and on rare ocassions shoes that could give 2.5-2.75 in or close to 3in , so he Gets a boost Anywere 0.5in to near 2in and can look Anywere 5'9.5-5'11 so 5'7-8in is not possible 5'8.5-9in is possible

Lol, Dmeyer. 6'0.25? I mean, that pic is even worse than G's ones: no visible ground, footwear,etc... As far as i know, Sly could be standing on something or in heels. And The Rock, well, he's not 6'3...

Zach says on 27/Aug/14
Arnold has shrunk considerably since his peak. Sly hasn't shrunk by much, and not at all IMO. Sly is almost falling over as Brad correctly pointed out due to the amount of lifts in his boots. Having said that I dont trust most of Arnie's footwear in recent years either, he seems to have become very height conscious too given his loss of 2+inches.
Junior31 says on 27/Aug/14
Met Burt young two times. One of them he was taller then me and I'm robs height 5'8 and change lol. Another time inches shorter. I have no idea how that's possible. He's must be getting some kicks from sly's closet!! Lol

Check out the poster for his new Expendables movie, which is an ensemble standing portrait of everybody in the movie, and Sly is the biggest guy in the group, beating out Dolph Lundgren. Also, he's lighting a cigar, so he obviously didn't care that it was supposed to be a nonsmoking poster. Steroids really work.
The Exorcist says on 21/Aug/14
Question for Rob:

Do you think he's been looking 5'8.5" for a while, or was it recent photos and videos behind your decision to downgrade him?
[Editor Rob: he goes up and down. In normal shoes with no obvious lifts, that's the time he can start to look a weak 5ft 9 and 174, but catch him standing at measured height and in some boots or suspicious footwear and suddenly he's back over 5ft 9]
truth says on 20/Aug/14
Honestly at times he could look easily 177cm or a weak 5ft10 in the younger days. Today a weak 5ft9.
Dmeyer says on 20/Aug/14

@parker
You took a look at the bricks Sly was running around in D.M. which Zach has uploaded recently? Hmh, not really the smallest ones Sly brought out here...
You think these bricks (somehow i like this description..) don't give 3 inches... wow... at least i'd say.. and nevertheless "only" has 3 inches on Mr. Bullock (yes i know listed 5'7", but i doubt..) A pretty easy calculation this is..
Don't suppose Sly would have missed the chance by wearing such massive boots to add some bonus height.... Not really surprising news.. between 5'7.5-5'7.75 max., not a tad above in his prime...
MP says on 19/Aug/14
I met him and shook his hand when he was filming Driven back in 2000. I'm about 5'8 3/4" or 174 or 175cm. He seemed a little taller than me, but he was wearing some kind of boots. It was such a quick encounter, I couldn't really tell how tall he was. But definitely seemed taller than me.
Brad says on 19/Aug/14
Those Demolition Man bricks are priceless. Farrah Fawcett wore those on Charlie's Angels in female variety.
RobV says on 19/Aug/14
@ Parker. I think that's a very good point about other actors in films with Stallone also wearing lifts. Just focussing on Stallone misses the point that a lot of actors do it. Specially for red carpet events because there is no doubt at all that if your favourite hardman actor looks tiny next to some actress or comedian it spoils the PR image. It explodes all the careful film effects to make you look big (and of course tall). Why else to so many muscular actors who are already tall quote that they are a couple of inches taller than they are.

So yeah, if one is to call out Stallone, then in all probability many of the other actors in that shot are also wearing lifts. It's just that we have noticed Stallone, probably because he really pushes it.

As a lift wearer myself, it's the old rule 'an inch is completely unnoticeable in footwear, 2 inches is fine in some and 3 inches is always tricky. Elevators are a different matter, but there are issues there as well - styling (for all their moneys a lot of well known guys wear out-of-date) and the temptation to wear wildly inappropriate elevators with the wrong pants/jeans. Great chunky work boots with black tie/tux.
Clay says on 18/Aug/14
My ex boss said he saw Stallone at the airport and he was ''tiny'', take it for what it's worth. :P

People exagerate all the time, a 5'8.5-5'9 movie star is going to be called tiny by randoms who see him in person.
H5O says on 18/Aug/14
See Paradise Alley on Netflix. Stallone next to short Armond Assante and 5'6" Anne Archer. Also: why does the web master censor comments? This is just a silly site about an actor's height for God's sake. Not the New York Times.

Sly is 5'7. Without shoes or lifts on....period....he's under average height....because when he stands next to guys like statham/ bandares/Gibson....he's in that height range when he has his shoes on.....so he's gotta be much shorter flat footed.......the end

The others listed on this site are Wesley Snipes (5'9),Antonio Banderas (5'8.5),Jason Statham (5'9). If Sly is 5'7 range as you say, all the rest need to come down. Please don't say Sly has 'hidden' lifts in his shoes..and the others haven't lol.

He is closer to average than short or tall. Rule out 6'0 or 5 '7.
Bernie says on 17/Aug/14
@Parker
I don't think so, no need to downgrade them all, except Mrs. Bullock... a 5'7" Person with such 5inch heels has to look about 5'11"-6'range.. and she simply doesn't near Mr. Clooney...
For a 171-172cm tall Person to give the impression looking between 5'9.5"-5'11" demands no miracle, just a pair of magic shoes... that's all...
The 3 inches footwear in Demolition man, i meant the complete shoe, outside sole plus inside lift, watch exactly... quite certain!!

If ever there was proof about how difficult it is generally to judge someone's height (anyone's height), it is this guy. No-one can agree no anything at all really. Vast numbers of photos are analysed and still you have several inches of variation. It proves that photography is no serious guide to absolute measurements because of posture, movement, perspective and angle. Yes you can tell serious height from short, and some of the gradations in between, but when you get into the detail of mid range heights, then it is very difficult.

On here in other sections you get guys saying "I am 5'11.5", can I claim 6'."!! As if everyone was going to have an absolute visual ability to measure you in front of them, shoes/boots/whatever and all. And then sopme sort of shame would descend on you if you claim a quarter of an inch taller than you are. Most people on here rightly cannot easily measure their own height. So you could probably claim all sorts of heights, the moreso given the degree to which so many people inflate their heights anyway.

All we are pretty sure of is that Stallone wants to appear taller than he really is. For whatever reason - it might be simple vanity, it might be to do with films and roles. None of us know as we do not know him personally. In the unlikely event that he were to come into one of the club nights I run, still I would have no idea of his height within a couple of inches, and I have worn lifts/elevators since I was 19.
Frankie68 says on 17/Aug/14
So has everyone seen ex3 and Sly's lifts...lol...everyone see sly shorter than Gibson / snipes while standing on a mountain of shoe...lol....everyone still think sly is a " strong " 7'....6'9...6'2....5'11"...everyone still gonna say he's 5'9.....but in the next breath ...say snipes is taller...what a minute................if snipes is 5'9...(prob closer to 5'8).....and sly is 5'9.....(closer to 5'7)....why is snipes taller.....shouldn't they be the same height......anyone see that nice lift in Sly's boot ( on top of a 2inch heel).....when he climbed into the plane while talking to Antonio bandares......lol.....( couldn't wait for bandares to shut up in the movie)......not only did the movie suck....but I'm convinced if sly was on 6 inch shoes ,,,,he still wouldn't hit 6 feet.....I never ask....but "rob"....I hope u see my point....

So we'll agree to disagree at Sly walking around in footwear giving him 3 inches in Demolition man.(He'd need 4 inches to get 3). Judge Dredd yes.

If Sly is 5'7 range, Rob needs to downgrade Rod Stewart,Arnie,Jason Statham,Sandra Bullock,Jean Claud Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren and Bruce Willis. It will keep him busy.
Dmeyer says on 15/Aug/14

richie says on 15/Aug/14
Yeah, minus his lifts Stallones height is probably between 5'8"/5'9", watch Copland, one of the few movies where he didn't wear his trademark lifts. He was about the same height as DeNiro and slightly taller than Keitel, Liotta had 3 inches on him so a weak 5'9" minus the lifts sounds about right
Bernie says on 15/Aug/14
@parker
yes, i know Demolition man, and you're 100% right, Sly looks 2-3 inches taller than her! But, look at his boots, you can see it in a scene very good, gives at least 3 inches (and don't believe he's wearing the same as S. Bullock). Secondly, i really doubt S.B. is 5'7" as listed.
Watch the pics Arch Stanton has uploaded on 2/Oct/13 with G. Clooney when you google her height. It's exactly how he says:
She's in big heels (I'd say 5 inches) and still looks a few inches shorter than Clooney (around 5'10"), she should be virtually the same height as him in those heels. Can't be 5f7, more like between 5f5-5f6!
Pics with H.Winkler, i know them, especially the first one, and yes there i don't see a 5'7" Sly, but these boots...lifts for sure, looks very suspicious.
Seems like the 5'6" for H.Winkler is a bit generous, 5'5" is more likely!
5'7.5-5'7.75" i see for Sly!
Lebensdorf says on 15/Aug/14
He courted my mom in the 70s. Well, sort of. She met him at a club and he called her a couple of times. In any event, she and my aunt swear that he was no more than 5-7, maybe 5-8. I think this is very likely. Before he wore elevator shoes, in his earlier work, before he was a star, you could tell that he was a short guy.

@Bernie
We'll agree to disagree.Eyebrows to top of head is 4 inches, and top of Sly's head was well above Crenna's eyebrows in that scene, but because of his thick hair I looked at where Sly' eye level was. It was at Crenna's mouth - 3 inches.

I also don't see him getting 3 inches from those boots. 2.5 inches absolute tops IMO, more likely 2. Giving Sly 5'8.5-5'9.

As an aside have you ever seen Demolition Man with 5'7 listed Sandra Bullock.? Sly looks 2-3 inches taller than her throughout the film.

Have a look at these pics with 5'6 Henry Winkler. Do you really see a 5'7 man next to him.? I accept Sly's got thicker footwear, but c'mon. Look at the body size

zeus says on 12/Aug/14
google says he is 177cm, it is hard to find out his real height, i think 175 is right
RobV says on 12/Aug/14
@ Zach and others. Yes you are right I suspect, that Stallone's trainers here are tailor made to look like others, but just with a built-in elevator. But yes, as Junior31 says, would you really wear sneakers like that with a built in lift together with those jeans. It is just so strange - but I think the reason is the desire to get a lot of extra height, specially when photographed with others, and a slight lack of aesthetic awareness.

I have made this point 100 times before (what? More often? Oh well). I am tall at 6'2" and wear lifts to get a few inches more. And I have discovered that with lifts (not elevators), an inch is dead easy in any pair of shoes or boots, two inches is possible in lots but looks odd in some (but still pretty straightforward if you are prepared to avoid some footwear), and 3 inches+ is a very difficult act to pull off in more than a certain % of footwear and has to be finessed really well, both with the jeans you wear and with the sizing of the boots etc. More is only really poss with elevators.

And elevators are another story - if you are well-off you are gonna go for tailor made, but even a lot of tailor made stuff is dodgy and slightly old-mannish, with styling a little dated (specially with stuff like trainers) and specially if you are trying to get a 5 inch elevator in a pair sneakers/trainers to give you 3.5" extra height on top of the chunkier sole.

But this use of chunky footwear with extra lifts in the most odd places (Downey Jnr at red carpet events is amazingly appalling). Stuff IS available but it really does require thought and an understanding of how it will look not just on your overall height but also at the point of lift off!
Supemann says on 12/Aug/14
@zach i actually tried to track those shoes down. i think you are right. it isn't nike shox. i think its costume made.

@Bernie even 5'7.75" barefeet is too much. sly is max 5'7" and I'm pretty sure thats frankie68's opinion too.. like the opinion of the civilized world too.. he is a known certified shortie(below 5'8") everyone with a set of eyes and a few membranes on top can see that.
Zach says on 11/Aug/14
Those aren't Shox, they are tailor made monstrosities.
Bernie says on 11/Aug/14
Even with those Nike Shox, Elevator or not, looks like giving 2 inches, & hat on the head not taller than J. Flavin almost barefeet... yeah, that's great...

@Parker: For you this is proof for 5'8-5'9? Puh, very, very optimistic, i have to say... I'd say, his stride is not losing him height, both his legs are stretched, even with the right one beginning a step, let's say kind of a trace of "tip-toeing"..(want to express this is not making him shorter..)

Relating to https://www.youtube.co/watch?v=GKsJLLaDA-k:
Obviously we have a different optical perception,.. anyway doesn't matter..
I see 4 inches between then both, i don't say he was getting 4 inches from those shoes, but 3inch for sure. When we suppose 6'1" for R.C. ( i read he was between 183-185cm, anyway..), then 6'2" with footwear.. So then 6'2" minus 7inches.. here we go.. I'd give him 5'7.75" barefeet, no more (that's just my opinion/ conception.. and maybe Frankie68's...)... looks simply too short to be 5'9"
Parker says on 11/Aug/14
Jesse Stone says on 11/Aug/14

He's wearing Nike Shox not elevators. His stride is losing him height and he looks level to me - more proof he is 5'8-5'9. Nothing new.

Those aren't even shocks. I don't know what the hell those are but they look like they even have alift and them too. Hius footwear is so absurd and ugly at times.

Frankie68 says on 10/Aug/14
@parker....thats your opinion....my comment wasn't to be rude...maybe I should've used other words....what I mean by ignorant is.....that u can't say he's 5'9 or similiar in height to people I mentioned....and then bring up footwear....because that's not logical...it just don't make sense....if people here say he's 5'9 or even 5'10 with his famous footwear on....it's more than probable he's falls in the 5'7 range flat footed....to me it's just simple math...he averages 2-3 inch heels ...sometimes more. ( like cobra,,,4+ inch).......so that's my thinking....if he was really 5'9 or 5'10 as u say u believe.....then he should be over 6' when he wears his lifts....the problem with your thinking is there is no evidence that supports that....because he is not taller than 5'10 with his famous shoes....sorry if I insulted anybody on here.....it's just common sense and logic to me.....forinstance (cobra). Massive giant boots....and was still shorter than Nielsen ...who was in flats....so how can he be 5'9 or 5'10....because if that height estimate is true....he would've appeared taller than Nielsen in the movie...not shorter.....
Bernie says on 10/Aug/14

I read somewhere that Sly and Arnie were measured in the 80's and Sly was 5'9, while Arnie was 6'1 1/2. I don't think his claim " 5'10" has ever been true. Maybe 5'9,25 but he was measured 5'9... Anything over 176 cm is speculation.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Aug/14
I know what you mean Dmeyer, lutz does look around 6'1" next to the others but Rob has met him so is in a better place to judge. Honestly though I thought Stallone was pulling off taller than 5'9 in Ex 3 and in some scenes managed to only look a bit shorter than Grammar and Arnie!!

Sly is short....sly wears shoe lifts....I don't care if he's in boots or dress shoes....there's always something going on....5'7 people....if he's lucky.....that SNL video from 1997 really did it for me...when h5o posted it....I watched it.........I didn't even recognize him at first....and that's what is said about him....u won't believe how small he is....

Rob could kellan be taller than 6'0.25/183.5cm as he consistently looks more 6'1 with sly snipes statham and lundgren
[Editor Rob: didn't think he looked near 6ft 1, but he was taller than the photographer and around 184, over 6ft mark I thought, whether 0.25 or 0.5 I think that was the argument.]

For most of ex3 Movie he looked 5'9

Lutz is pulling 6'1" easily in that pic, don't you think Rob? Why would he tip toeing?
[Editor Rob: because he wants to look taller. He has spent too much time around Stallone and has caught heighterism from Sly...Kellan's now measuring himself 5 times a day, hanging from bars, going on tip toes.

I even heard he's roaming the streets of NY hoping to find a 5ft 8 guy to get a photo with, so he'll look 6ft 2.]

Risinforce also mel had slight more shoes than sly. In cannes to me he Still looks 5'9

Relooking at sly pics of ex3 premières i think sly could steel be 5'8.75-9in as he looks 5'9.5-9.75in while in shoes that couldnt give over 1.5-1.75in 5'8.75in is possible as he can Still look légit 175cm or as much as 177-178cm with shoes that arent munsters

I trust video far more than pictures and on video at Cannes, Sly and Mel looked very similar in height. There definitely wasn't an inch separating them that night. Click Here Look at 0:55, 1:30 and 1:36. They look about the same height.

The most I could separating them there with both in dress shoes is half an inch. Of course, there's a good chance Sly is 5'9" and Mel is 5'9.5", but also a solid chance Sly is 5'8.5" and Mel is 5'9".
