Look at him and trump. They look the same height and trump is still 6’2” because he’s taller than Obama. Arnold is still 6’2”

Arnie was NEVER 6'1.5". Fanboys have to give up this fantasy of him being close to 6'2". Never happened. Never will.
Myself said on 11/Jan/19
I think 6'1 peak, whether strong or weak, but maybe 5'10.5 today.

@Rising =Not quite clearly taller for me because both are not in perfectly posture Kristanna's head tilt a little bit downward and on the side,more space between her feet, and she has her hairs slicked back and brigitte has straight hairs.
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Jan/19
Brigitte is quite clearly taller than Loken in that pic and I would never trust a movie height chart since some are real, but many are just props so it's a guess. Loken looks a bit below the 6' mark in shoes there and there's a very good chance Brigitte has lost height since 1985. She was a legit 6' back then. 182 cm at the absolute worst case. Remember, solid 5'9" Eddie Murphy inflated her to 6'2" to back up his 5'10" claim.

Arnold 183 today? lol! He is 179 max today. I know legit 5'11" guys who met him and told me they were taller and he must be 5'10.5 tops! Looks he was a 183-184 guy in his younger days no more
Pierre said on 8/Jan/19
Comparisons Arnold/Brigitte Nielsen = Click Here = Here is a height chart 2014 mercenaries movie.Brigitte by this scale is around 6"0' in shoes here .The scale seems to me good because the right tall woman(Kristanna Loken) is around 5"11' barefeet (picture in this site with Rob/Jenny/Josh) and in shoes here she's measured around 6"0' by the scale.Brigitte is looking the same range height as Kristina here.

@houss= Your friend guess arnold 183 in 2014 and ? we have to stop debating about his height ? your friend has the bionic eye of Arnold in Terminator?I doubt.And even a bionic eye can make mistakes with the parameter of shoe,distance,hairs,posture etc etc....
So me too i could say your comments are absurd ...

You have chosen the worst possible pics with awful angle, you cannot judge his height from that at all. Duh

robertat5'9 , absurde , that's what arnold would say if he reads pierre's comments , i have a friend who met him in 2014 and he said he was abt 183 , i know he wasn't 188cm maybe he was that height in shoes , but our friend pierre is trying to make him much shorter than he was , I don't like that

Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Jan/19
Reagan is widely thought to have been more like 6'0" then or maybe just under and Arnold is obviously taller supporting the 6'1"+ Arnold. Bush looked 6'2" well beyond 1984 so there's little evidence to suggest he shrunk by then. That Reagan/Reeve photo favors Reeve a lot. If Reagan was only 5'11" in the mid 80's then how tall was Michael Jackson? Click Here 5'7"? 5'8" max?
Pierre said on 6/Jan/19
@houss = And the pics i posted Arnold/Lou or Arnold/Chet Yorton(perfect angle both barefeet) Arnold/Yuri Vlaslov etc= bad pics too? Are you sure that it's me who has a problem with Arnold's height?....

@Houss = my pics are not good because my pics are showing Arnold shorter than you believe...Then i can talk about the pics you posted too= with Christopher Reeve what are the shoes? Christopher slouch and Arnold is standing straighter = they are not standing in the same posture.Is the floor regular?We don't know etc etc = in brief it's easy to criticize a pic....

@houss you sound so absurd. Of course Arnold was a tall guy but your photos benefit him. He was not even 6'1 barefoot. He was 6'0". Your photos just optical looks Arnold taller than he was. In the second photo Clint looks near 2 inches on Arnold and Clint was 6'2.25 by that time. Arnold usually wears advantge on all those events.
Pierre said on 6/Jan/19
@Rising= Rising i don't agree with you for Jeff's and others guys postures.
The low angle can not explain why Christopher Reeve has to slouch a lot to talk to Arnold and can not explain why Arnold has to looking upward a lot to talk to Christopher.
@Sotiris=Yes Sotiris =Christopher Reeve not Reeves.For me Arnold was around the 6"0' range barefoot but no more.

robertat5'9 said on 5/Jan/19
I agree @Ahsan Please Rob he doesn't shrunk 6 cm . He lost maybe 3.5 max. Even all his injuries and age he still looks great. He is in the 179 range and he was a 183 guy. One of the most upgraded personalities. He was a 6'0.5 guy that was his real height.
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Jan/19
@Pierre: That's the [low, side] angle in that other pic with Reeve and Jeff is slouching more than a little bit in some of those pics.

@Sotiris: That first pic you posted is a much better angle, though Arnold(slouching a bit) looks about 3" taller than Weider and probably not more than 3.5" max shorter than Ferrigno(who has more extra hair). Weider was born in 1919 so it's reasonable to assume he was shorter in 1997 than 1977.
Ahsan said on 4/Jan/19
Arnold had great proportions as a bodybuilder. Probably one of the best proportioned men in the world. I think he was in the Guinness book of records for it. The thing I’m getting at is that his proportions made him look tall when pictured alone. He had a small head and long legs, this can make a person appear much taller than they really are. That’s why a lot of his pictures you see when he’s alone or standing next to short people make him look about 6’1. But in reality he wasn’t that height imo.
Pierre said on 4/Jan/19
@Rising= Click Here In this other pic Cristopher Reeves slouch to talk to Arnold and Arnold looks upward,Christopher looks something like three good inches taller than him.
By the pics i posted Jeff Bridges /Robert Redford/Gary Busey even if Jeff slouch sometimes a little bit( Robert and Gary are not looking always perfectly straight too) it will be hard for me to guess 6"1.5' for Jeff,even with the possible parameter of cowboy boots.
robertat5'9 said on 4/Jan/19
@Sotiris Gravas Lou was more 5'9 never looked 5'10". Arnie was never as tall mos believe he was a big muscular 6 footer guy strugging to be 6'1 with shoes or tricks to appear over 6'1 but the reality he was 6' barefoot maybe 6 and 1/4 (6'0.25) Never appear more than 6'0.5" barefoot
Sotiris Gravas said on 4/Jan/19
Here's an old pic of Arnie, Lou and 5'10" Joe Weider... Click Here Lou TOWERS over him. Ppl refuse to look w/ their eyes rather than the skewed optics of fandom. Ferrigno was not "that" tall, which means Arnie was NEVER as tall as ppl make him out to be.


Here's Arnie w/ Joe Weider and Lou towering way in the back... Click Here Here's a close-up of this pic. Observe 5'10" Weider (5'11" in shoes) next to a barefoot Arnie: Click Here



Arnie (barefoot) and supposedly 5'10", 5'11" in shoes Joe Weidder (1975). Click Here Does Arnie look especially tall here...? The answer is no. I've stood next to Jimmy Caruso as far back as 1994. The man is super teeny-tiny. Was he ever even over 5'0"...?

I always put Arnie at 6'0" max, and was briefly tempted to believe as low as 5'11". I seriously doubt he was more than 6'0" peak height.


Was Joe Weider really 5'10" peak? Here he is w/ 5'11" Joe Piscopo back in 1997:

Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Jan/19
Can't see footwear, but Arnold doesn't look more than 2" shorter than 6'3.5" Christopher Reeve in 1986: Click Here Hopefully someone can find pictures of footwear at that event(I did a quick search, but couldn't) though they were probably wearing dress shoes considering their formal clothes.

@Pierre: Bridges is slouching a ton in at least 3 of those 4 pics and Busey looks to have a cowboy type boot. It's possible Bridges was only 6'1" or 6'1.25" peak, but again, Rob has him listed 6'1.5" so until Rob downgrades his peak or I look into him more myself, I'll go with Rob's listing.

@Canson: Not directly before otherwise Basille would have surely mentioned that since he was aware of the story of a cop being carried in on a mattress to make the 5'8" height requirement.

@Sotiris: That photo with George W. Bush was taken over 11 years ago in late 2007. Bush was still closer to 5'11" there and Arnold is more than an inch taller there, possibly 1.5". Arnold was consistently at least an inch taller back then because he was still six feet. That photo with Ralf was taken mid-stride and outdoors. Here's a more recent one(2017 as opposed to 2014) also taken indoors and more importantly standing: Click Here Even if Ralf has shrunk to 6'5" flat, Arnold still looks near 5'11.5" with him. That 70's photo with Ferrigno has a very low angle exaggerating the difference. Here's a pretty good pic from around '88 when Arnold would have been near his peak and Lou would have still been at or near his peak of 6'4" or at least 6'3.5": Click Here Looks like 2" max there, much like with Christopher Reeve a couple of years earlier. Now 2001 when Lou was still 6'3" minimum: Click Here Arnie looks surprisingly close there, though footwear isn't known. However, here's a series of pics from fall 2002(around the time of Arnold's hip replacement) Click Here Click Here Click Here and footwear is known: Click Here Click Here Arnold's might be a fraction thicker, but both are in dress shoes and note Lou still looked 6'3" with 6'2" Triple H. 2001 Arnold was still around 6'1" and probably not less than a weak 6'1"/6'0.75". That 2002 hip replacement and age seem to be why he shrunk down closer to a flat 6 feet within a few years, but even though the '02 pics aren't the best and tend to favor Arnold, but this is a better one from what looks like it might be the same event: Click Here That 2017 shot was taken so close, I don't think it tells us much. There's some decent video of Arnold and Lou meeting at the Arnold Classic in 2012 and 2013.

Editor Rob
Photographs get taken at all sorts of heights, sometimes it is useful being reminded of how some angles can elongate or compress people. It is just unforunat for Arnie, he was one of the examples...I'm sure he doesn't mind though 🤨

@Sotiris: I’d say the latest pics of Moeller he can still look a bit over 6’5”. I don’t question his listing here for his peak Because he looked it
Canson said on 2/Jan/19
6’1 looks good for his peak but 6’1.5 is high. Just because the measurement “allegedly” was done at night doesn’t mean that it was a low for him. He could’ve layed around before taking it
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Jan/19
Here's the clip of Arnie and Bridges: Click Here You see Arnie is barefoot and Bridges in shoes yet the difference isn't that big. I don't think Bridges would have been any taller if you took off his shoes. So we have Arnold as tall as 6'1.5" peak listed Jeff Bridges in the 70's, taller than 6'1" minimum Carl Weathers in Predator, taller than 6'1" listed Tom Arnold in True Lies, taller than 186 cm peak Roger Moore(maybe lost 1 cm by then), as tall as 186 cm Evander Holyfield in the mid 90's, as tall as 6'1" Reg Park in his bodybuilding days, as tall as 6'1.5" peak listed Vince McMahon in 1999, taller than 186 cm listed Stone Cold Steve Austin in 1999 etc. McMahon and Austin may have been half an inch shorter than listed then, but still, 6'1" is the absolute lowest I can see for peak Arnold putting him close enough to Vince Basille's measurement to make it believable.

@Pierre: I'm talking Bridges in his 20's, not in his late 60's. Rob only lists him 6'0.5" currently so it's obvious he's lost height and I'm sure his bad posture currently makes him look to struggle with 6'. I don't know if Bridges was just 6'1" peak or the full 6'1.5", but Rob lists him 6'1.5" peak so I'll go with that as the reference.
Pierre said on 2/Jan/19

@Pierre Great pics, dude.
Rising - 174 cm said on 1/Jan/19
@Sotiris: Arnold was barefoot many scenes in that film compared to Bridges in shoes yet the difference was still often less than an inch. If Bridges was the 6'1.5" peak he's listed at here then Arnold's 6'1.5" measurement seemed spot on with him. Of course Arnold was never a full 6'2", but he was as tall or taller than enough 6'1" guys to put him 6'1" minimum peak and imo, the 6'1.5" Vince Basille claimed to measure him at.
Zealot said on 1/Jan/19
Arnold was 6'0 no more no less. 6'1-6'2 was marketing and hollywood height. Or with advantage shoes. His real height was 6'0. Watch all his young pics. you can see a video of his real height and I agree too he was somwhere 182.8-184.0 cm barefoot
Pierre said on 31/Dec/18
Click Here = Here Arnold with Scott Wilson listed 5"10' in web,Arnold seems to wear a little bit more advantageous shoes imo
Mister lennon said on 31/Dec/18
Still think solid or strong 6'1 peak. 186-187. 185 is possible too.
Althought in some movies , he can looks a strong 6 guy. But i think that 185 minimum for him.

Here's around 6'1" peak height Jeff Bridges next to a barefoot Arnie in "Stay Hungry" (1976)... Click Here Arnie was never 6'2" peak height, as he'd have ppl believe. He had big muscles, but not the height. Trust me, it bothered him. It also bothers fanboys who refuse to accept the truth.

Arnold was never a legit 6'1" guy. I'm tired of this he was more a 183-184 guy or 6'0.5 max". Porbably just 1/2 inch on Brigitte.

You can tell nothing based on those photos. Uneven floor + Arnold and Brigitte not standing full straight + boots. Besides, if Brigitte was 6 feet, Arnold looks at least as tall as she was in 1985.

@Houss= what are your sources Reg was a legit 6"1'?
i never said park was a legit 6'1" i was replying on juby's comment
Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Dec/18
Was Dave Draper a legit 6'0"? @viper: I guess that depends on whether Arnold could really look that short back then. I can see Arnold looking only 6'0.5" at times in the 70's or 80's, but not below 6', I think that is more about perception.

@Pierre: You can see footwear at the very beginning of the film. Arnold has boots, but I think more of a normal military boot in the 1.25" range and not a really thick cowboy or logger type boot. You can see when he's sitting in his office that Carl does not have boots and probably not shoes over one inch so Arnold could have something like a 1/4" or 1 cm advantage. Even so, they're indoors and Arnold clearly seems taller throughout their scene. The photos at the event don't have good enough angles for just a few shots where we can't see feet or ground and posture is up and down. It'd be different if there was some video footage of that event so we could get a better idea.
Pierre said on 21/Dec/18
@Houss= what are your sources Reg was a legit 6"1'?
Juby said on 21/Dec/18
@houss
In your photo it is clear to see that Arnold was even higher than Park. He's not standing full straight, and Reg looks taller only due to his big haircut.

Even if Reg Park was 6'1 only "after a very good night", Arnold might've been a 1 cm taller, so he was full 6'1". This was also his official height before he got famous in late 60s, and he himself claimed to be 6'1 in 1969.

Conclusion:
185cm peak height. Nowadays Arnold struggle to look 180cm sometimes, but it's hard for him to stand real straight, he has bad posture in his 60s and 70s.
robson said on 20/Dec/18
Something between 6'0 and 6'1. So MAYBE, out of bed and with shoes he could be 6'2 but it's some kind of cheating after all. Anyways he seemed to be 183-184 at average and now 180-181.

I agree viper. Arnold was never 6'1. He is one of the most popular figures overrated on height. He was on the 6'0.25 range and never over 6'0.5"

@Rising=This is not the best comparison imo ,just one of them,with Arnold always easily closer to the camera and in a better posture,or when both are standing straight the camera is not in a neutral angle(random?) Here too we don't know the shoes.The pics i posted are outside the movie and Carl always looks a little bit taller but this is maybe the random too...
Rising - 174 cm said on 18/Dec/18
Posture is similar enough. Yes, Arnold is closer in the scene, but you still see enough of them to tell Arnold wasn't shorter in the scene and really seems taller. It's not perfect, but it's by far the best comparison we have of them back then.

You can't tell anything from those event pics. Here's a clear comparison of Arnold and Carl walking: Click Here It's clear from that scene Arnold was not shorter and he really seems taller. I think Carl himself said they were the same height so that also points to Arnold not being shorter in the 80's.
Solmaker said on 15/Dec/18
Mr. R said on 30/Mar/05: I was in Berkeley when Arnold and Danny DeVito came to shoot Twins. For some odd
reason, I never went to watch the filming. But my friend went along with her strapping 6'2" 18 year old son.
From her eyewitness accounts, her son towered over Arnold. My guess is that Arnold is between 5'11' and 6'.

Coincidentally I too was 6'2" 18 years old in 1976-7, saw Schwarzenegger appearing at a Harvard Square book store,
and likewise guessed 5'11"-6' for his height. He looked like a medium-sized but well-proportioned football player in
a tight tan dress suit. By contrast around that time I saw a guy who I assume was Wilt Chamberlain walking down
the street, looking like an unearthly giant in every dimension!

@Pierre: Simple. Because the two men were very close in height at that time and it's a single photo with neither standing in perfect posture. Holyfield edges Arnold in that one photo, but Arnold is taller on the video. All things being equal, video is better for judging height than a single photo, but we still do need to know footwear in the video. They'd still likely be very close in height, but as of now that's the one problem with the video.

@Rising=Then why Evander more distant to the camera and without hairs is looking taller than Arnold ? Click Here
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Dec/18
@Pierre: Yes, cowboy boots are a possibility, but there's no way Holyfield is taller at the 11 second mark. He actually does have to look up to Arnold. He's way too close to the camera at 34 seconds to compare them, but Holyfield has never "towered" Arnold. Neither man has ever towered the other. Towered means at least 4-5 inches. 26 seconds is the best comparison as they're face to face and Arnold is clearly taller. You can't tell if Arnold is looking up in that still you keep posting. Actually, it just looks like he's looking straight, but if he was then it'd be due to Holyfield craning his neck to talk to Dolph. But you can't tell anything from that still. That's why I posted the video.

@Rising=at 11/ 13 seconds Arnold is closer to the camera.But i see Evander taller here.At 26 seconds Arnold is always closer to the camera and back to the camera and i can see Evander have to looking downward to talk to Arnold,at 27 seconds Evander break his neck=his head is a lot in front of his shoulders but the top of his head is always at least as tall as Arnold's top of head.At 34 seconds he's standing face to face with Arnold's wife and is standing straight and looks clearly taller than Arnold=Arnold closer to the camera does not look really taller than Evander,but Evander closer to the camera tower Arnold....that's why Arnold has to looking upward to see Evander like here Click Here and that's why Arnold has to looking upward to see Yuri Vlasov(6"0.5'/6"1')and Yuri has to looking downward to see Arnold = Click Here Click Here

@Pierre: The only thing you can tell is Evander has to look up to talk to Dolph. You can't tell if Arnold is shorter there. IF Arnold is looking up -- and I see no indication he is -- it might be because Holyfield is craning his neck. Here's the actual video even though it's been posted: Click Here Look at 11 seconds. Arnold doesn't have to look up any more than Holyfield does. Look at 26 seconds. If anything, Arnold looks a bit taller in that video.

Michael, 5'10" 178 cm said on 3/Dec/18
Arnold was never the full 6’2”, he was 6’0”-6’1” or a little bit over that range at peak. He is probably under 6’0” today. In pictures where he was standing next to Andre the Giant and Wilt, he definitely didn’t look 6’2”, he looked quite a bit shorter. He looked barely 6 foot, if that, I feel like I’m being generous. In Twins however, he gave off a tall impression and towered over Danny Devito, but then again, he’s super short. He didn’t look that tall next to Sharon Stone in Total Recall either and in the most recent Terminatior movie, Geniys, he looks between 5’11”-6’0” range. Bottom line Arnold was 6’1 1/2” max at peak, probably under 6 foot today, he looks much shorter than he used to be back in the day.

Btw, here's some of the shoes Arnold wore to the 2015 Arnold Classic in Madrid: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here The boots in the first pic are pretty thick, but not cowboy boots and the black pair of dress shoes seem pretty typical. Around 3 cm would be typical for his shoes at that event, maybe a bit more for the boots and possibly a bit less for the dress shoes.
AndyG1 said on 22/Nov/18
I see Arnold a weak 6'1 in the 70's. knowing his personality yes maybe he was measured 6'1.5 but bursting a gut and that changes all.. His real height was more 6'0.75 barefoot stadiometer touching top of his head. Overall he always looked 184-185 in his first movies
Barry Fl said on 21/Nov/18
The first time I saw Arnold he was wearing cowboy boots and easily looked 6 foot. The other two times I still put him at over 5'11 and he was wearing more regular shoes. That's adjusting for footwear before anyone says 'so he'd be shorter without the heels'! I was wearing shoes too! Most people tend to!

I would, however, still say that his proportions have changed over the years - see him on chat shows etc in the early to late 80s and he looks longer in the body. Maybe it's just the effect of thickening with age (happens to us all!) combined with a couple of inches height loss, and it's true that he *does* look shorter. But don't fall for all this talk of him never being more than 5'10 - he's well over that now.

I'm still inclined to believe the Vince Basile measurement for peak Arnold.
Rising - 174 cm said on 18/Nov/18
@Hijo and Barry: I believe both of you on this. I posted quite a few comparisons from 2017-2018 back in July where Arnold still looked at least a solid 5'11" and back in 2015, he was still looking 6 feet at some events, albeit with thicker footwear. Here's footage from the Terminator Genisys premiere: Click Here Look at him with 5'10" listed J.K. Simmons shortly after the timestamp around 3:42. You see him talking to 6'1" listed Jason Clarke around the same time and it's not the best angle, but it doesn't seem Arnold was 2" shorter. The height difference with 6'0.75" listed Jai Courtney was barely noticeable at some events: Click Here Click Here Arnold only had cowboy boots at some of the events, the black pair don't have the big cowboy heel: Click Here Probably not bigger than Courtney's heel here and Arnold was still maybe an inch shorter: Click Here He was not 6" shorter than weak 6'5" range Joe Manganiello in 2014: Click Here Both in similar sneakers and 195 cm Manganiello makes Arnold at least 181 cm at that time. I never bought the 5'10" range stuff. For one, I've heard 5'10" rumors since I was a kid and Arnold was still his peak height back then. I think the 5'10" stuff is people being surprised Arnold is shorter than they expected. I'm not guessing he's still 6' barefoot, just that he can look that with the right footwear and I'd guess him more around 5'11.5" standing for a measurement, maybe what Rob lists him.

Are you sure he was taller than you ? And how much was the difference between you two
Barry Fl said on 16/Nov/18
@Hijoputamos

It's true - you read so much about this that you expect Arnold to be shorter than he is! I've said it before on here, but I've been up close to him 3 times in the past 4 years, and would definitely say he's still over 5'11.

Rob what's your lowest and highest guess for Arnie? Your honest opinion.
Mi low is 6'0.25 and highest 6'1 (on a really good peak day and maybe earlier measurement)
Editor Rob
Lowest peak I'd argue is about 6ft 1, highest 1.5.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Nov/18
@hulver: We can agree to disagree on Carl's height today since it's not particularly relevant to Arnold's peak height since all that matters is we agree on Carl being legit 6'1" peak. I tend to think Arnold was taller because he looked it during their scene in Predator, but I'll concede that it's not impossible Carl was as tall or taller because those who argue Arnold was shorter peak will likely believe he could have had a decent footwear advantage and I think everyone can agree the difference between Arnold and Carl would have been pretty small either way.
hulver said on 8/Nov/18
Rob please tell us If you know about Carl words on Arnold's height If he ever told you or said. Does he commented how tall he was next to Arnold?

I'm not sure what he'd say about Arnold.
hulver said on 7/Nov/18
@Rising - 174 cm
Yes Carl Weathers was probably a legit 6'1 guy and nowdays 6'0.5 but sure not over this mark. I say 6'0.5 max.
I see Arnold a small fraction shorter than Carl in the 80's. or exactly same height at best
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Nov/18
@Pierre: Sometimes, yes, though maybe not with a suit and tie and if Arnold was wearing cowboy boots, that would account for why he looks at least 6'2" with Moore, which would still make him over 6'1" if Moore was in normal 1" shoes. Speaking of 6'1" range guys, here's a good comparison of Arnold and 6'1.5" David Letterman back in 1991: Click Here and I can't say for sure, but at 5:15, it doesn't look like Arnold has cowboy boots. And probably an even better comparison in 1994: Click Here It doesn't look like Arnold has cowboy boots either.

@rising= Christopher Walken always slouch in the scène of the movie you posted
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Nov/18
@Pierre: If anything, it's probably the opposite. They're inside the office in the scene I linked to and we have video. Why wouldn't the floor be flat in the office? I just can't see how two photos that aren't even full trump video taken indoors. Btw, here's footwear in the second pic you posted: Click Here We can't see for sure, but there looks to be less of a chance of Roger getting an advantage compared to Walken. But as I said, even if you want to call Roger 6'0" in the 80's, Arnold still looks 6'1"+ with him.

@hulver: Well, Carl was no less than 6'1" back in the 80's. I could agree to exactly 6'1" flat then, but not less. Today, he's 6'0.5" minimum rather than maximum, but he looks around 6'0.5" in the photo with Rob since Rob reaches his eye level which would typically be around 11-11.5 cm, but more importantly, Rob has met Carl in 2010, 2012 and 2015 and said Carl has still looked near 6'1" each time or 6'0.5" minimum. I could agree to call Carl 6'1" peak and 6'0.5" today for the sake of this comparison, but no less for either.
Pierre said on 6/Nov/18
@Rising=In the pictures i posted the floor is very probably flat,in the movie the floor isn't flat 90 percent of the time or Carl broke his posture in the pics then compare them by some pics from the movie is more random imo
hulver said on 6/Nov/18
To Rising - 174 cm

I agree Carl was 6'1 max in his peak or 6'0.75 Today I see 6'0.5 max. There are no more than 10 cm between Rob and Carl. Rob is 173.3 in the photo and Carl looks 10 cm max 11! Carl is 6'0.5 max today
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Nov/18
@Pierre: I haven't seen a good photo for comparing from that event, certainly not as good as the film.

@hulver: Known by whom? I've never seen Arnold wearing lifts or elevators and he wore cowboy boots more from the 90's on, but more off screen than on. He could have had a fraction more footwear in that scene, but I don't know. 184-185 cm is at least a reasonable guess for Arnold, but come on, Carl is probably still around 6'0.75" and is an absolute minimum 6'0.5" today so he was at least a full 6'1" guy peak.

@viper: I agree.
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Nov/18
@Pierre: I'm not sure what point you're arguing. Is it that Roger Moore was only 6'0" in the 80's? If so, Arnold still doesn't look under 6'1" with him and I have to ask how tall you think Roger was in '95-'96 and then how tall you think Pierce Brosnan was peak? Btw, in the film A view to Kill, if you watch the scene in Zorin's(Walken's) office where he finds out Moore's(Bond's) identity, they look close in height when they briefly shake hands, but Moore clearly looks taller when they walk to the door. Watch @ 46 minutes in this video: Click Here Beyond that, we might have to agree to disagree save further discussion on Moore's height for his page. As for Tom Arnold, I never said he was 6'2"(that's what Tom claims himself), I said he was probably 6'1" in 1994. Don't know if he's still 6'1" in his 50's or closer to 6'0"-6'0.5" these days. Even IF Rob has him 1/2" too high peak, that still puts Arnold about 6'1" in True Lies.

Arnold is known to use some advantage on shoes. You would not see a difference in 2 cm or 0.75 inch. His torso look shorter than Carl Weathers. Look at his shoulders high too. Arnold shoulders look a bit under Carl's. I see with luck a 185 peak Arnold. I really can't see Arnold over 6'0.75 guys. He was the main character in Predator. Maybe he wore some advantage. Let's say they are same height and is hard to believe. In my opinion Carl was 6'0.75 peak and Arnold 6'0.5.

@hulver: Not true in this case since Carl Weathers was definitely an honest 6'1" back in the 80's and Arnold looked taller in Predator: Click Here We know Carl's height because Rob met him in 2010, 2012 and 2015 and said he still looked around 185 cm. Carl is still at worst a strong 184 himself at 70 so giving him 185.5 peak is pretty conservative. Arnold also looked a bit taller than 6'1" Tom Arnold in True Lies: Click Here and even considering his camera advantage, he's clearly taller than Roger Moore in 1988: Click Here Maybe Roger shrunk from 186 cm range peak down to 184-184.5, but look how well Roger still measured up to Pierce Brosnan even 7 years later: Click Here Click Here and remember Arnold on Smackdown in late 1999. Taller than 186 cm listed Stone Cold Steve Austin: Click Here Maybe Austin is more like 184, but Arnold was also about the same height as roughly 6'1" Vince McMahon: Click Here Click Here Also note in that last video Arnold looks at least 6'1" with a peak Rock.
hulver said on 5/Nov/18
@ Rsing - 174 cm
I guarantee honest and legit 6'1 guys were slightly taller than he was. Arnold maybe was a strong 184 in his best day (6'0.5). But I agree in a lot pics looks about 6'1 with other actors or guys. He always holds a good posture in photos with a good posture. Evan was maybe 186 cm and Arnie 184 cm.
In photos sometimes you look shorter and sometimes taller. I'm 5'10 and in some photos I look like other 5'11 even 6'0. friends.

@Hulver= I think too he's more around 6"0' peak than 6"2' or even 6"1.5'.
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Nov/18
@Pierre: Yes, Arnold looks slightly shorter in that pic, but I don't think that trumps video, much less negates video. Ideally, you look at series of pics and you can see variation, especially when the difference is so small, but you can at least see the variation on video so it's not just one second.

@hulver: The reason 6'2" guys edge him is because Arnold was not a full 6'2". Why did Arnold edge 6'1" guys? I think he's shrunk more than 4 cm, but I'll agree 5 cm is close and I'll also grant you Dolph looked a good 3"-4" taller in the video for whatever reason, but no way Holyfield was an inch taller. It's obvious the men were very close in height back in the 90's. Barely anything separating them one way or the other.
hulver said on 4/Nov/18
To Pierre:
Yes but in my opinion guesses over 6'1 for Arnold are out of reality. If he would had rounded his height at 6'1 I would not say anymore but funny some few and himself had said 6'2! The guy was probably 183-184. 6'0.5 max
Pierre said on 4/Nov/18

Arnold edge out Evander when Arnold is closer to the camera,and the angle of the camera favors Arnold .When Evander is closer to the camera and the angle of the camera favors Evander Evander edge out Arnold Click Here .Plus Arnold is straight and Evander lots of time break his neck/his posture (his head is a lot in front of his shoulders like here= Click Here but the top of his head is still as high as Arnold's top of head-don't know the shoes here-).When Evander is standing straighter to talk to Dolph Arnold have to look up with his eyes/head to watch Evander= Click Here .Don't know the shoes.

Why all 6'2 guys edged him? Watch Commando. He looks just over 6' or 6 on the nose. Peak 6'0.5 at best. He was the kind of guy who always wore advantage shoes. Evander was taller than him by an inch. Maybe on some photos doesn't look but watch him with Dolph Lundgren who had at least 3 inches on him I say 4. Arnold 6 range. 184 cm max! He shrunk 4 to 5 cm.

@viper: I agree: Click Here Maybe Arnold is favored at that point, but he'd still be the same height at worst in the video. If Holyfield edged him in general then Arnold must have had thicker shoes in that video, but he's not standing shorter.

@Simon: That last post of yours seems more humble. I can see how some think Arnold was as short as 184 peak, but I just don't agree. Some others agree with you, but many also think he was more 186 range. All I'm saying is it's not something to get angry about. I don't think Arnold always stood with perfect posture. I think his shoulders made him look shorter at times. I think Zane was probably about 5'9". I'd like to see him get a page here because he's one of the greats, but I'm not sure that will ever happen.

We both agree on Dolph at 6'4" peak so I really don't know what you're talking about. These days, I'm probably as inclined to argue someone lower than Rob lists them as opposed to higher with Mel Gibson and Michael Douglas being just two examples of that. But that's enough talk about me. If you can stop getting so emotional and melodramatic about these heights and stick to the subject rather than personal insults like calling me short then I'll be happy to debate with you like anyone else.

You don't always look taller - it depends on the height of the shorter person and whether the camera is above their head or not.
Simon6.0 said on 1/Nov/18
Rising - 174 cm
In the pic with Zane where you say Arnold looks a good 186 cm you can see Arnold is closer to the camera, and we all know you look taller when you are closer.

Yes 182 is too low I agree. I'd say 183 cm lowest and 184'5 max. Just seen thousands of photos of A rnie and with other actors and bodybuilders and all his movies. I can tell you he really struggles with the 6'0.5 mark.
Yes Zane was max 5'9. Always listed at 5'9. We know bodybuilders tend to exaggerate heighs too. In my opinion he was 5'8 or 5'8 range. Arnold was not even 6'1 he always appears with perfect posture standing tall and so confident. Don't forget a lot of bodybuilders were 5'8- 5'10 on those years and made Arnold looked taller. He was tall of course but not the 6'1-6'2 always told. 6'0.5 and I think is fair enough

@Simon: I said I didn't know how tall Ken was so you just proved my point again. If you're going to reply to something, you should make sure you read it first. I wouldn't go as low as 5'10.5" with Joe Weider, though. But I agree Arnold does struggle with 6'1" next to 6'4" Dolph, but he looks a solid 6'1" with Holyfield, who is closer to his height. As for Zane, I always read 5'9" or 5'9.5" for his height. I don't know who "people" is, but there's "people" who have met Arnold and said he was 6'1"-6'2" peak, some like William Wisher even thought Arnie was 6'3". Doesn't make it true. Even if Zane was only 174, Arnold still looks a good 186 cm in this pic: Click Here Although in this photo: Click Here Arnold does look more 6'0"-6'0.5" unless Zane was 5'9.5", though it looks to me like there's a tilt in Zane's favor so without that, I could easily see Arnold 4", possibly 4.5" taller. The lowest I could see argued for Arnold is 184 cm peak, but that's too low, imo. 182 cm is a joke since he can still look that NOW.

@Simon: Before telling me to learn to think independently, you should learn how to read. I said IF Ken was 183 cm. I suggest you calm down and stop getting so upset about how tall people claim to be. "Tired", "No more!", "Does honesty still exist?" I can tell you melodrama still exists.
Simon6.0 said on 30/Oct/18
Great video. One more proof Arnold was about 183 cm or just over 6'0 prime. Dolph Lundgren has easily 3 inches on Arnold at least and Dolph was 6'4. I see Arnold at 183 cm max on the video or 6'0.25 max.

Posted this on another page so here's video of Arnold 6'1.25" Evander Holyfield in 1996: Click Here You can see them pretty much face to face around 27 seconds in. Arnold looks at least as tall, imo. And in this rarely posted pic with Andre the Giant, 6'1.5" is believable for Arnold, imo: Click Here I didn't add the chart, but it's tough to see how it could be far wrong: Click Here Andre looks to need a downgrade much more than Arnold.

@Pierre: Yeah, I'd have to agree that Ken doesn't look close to 6'0" if the Mentzer brothers' heights are correct. I know Mike wasn't a tall man and could look shorter than Frank Zane.
Simon6.0 said on 29/Oct/18
Here Frank Zane listed 5'9 with Arnold:
Click Here:

However people who met Zane said he was more 5'8.5 or 1'74. Arnold looks 7 cm on him or 3 inches max. I always see Arnold between 1'82-1'84 max or 5'11.75 at worst or 6'0.5 max. More 6'0.25
What do you think Rob?
Simon6.0 said on 29/Oct/18
To Pierre:
Nice pic.
Another proof Ken Waller was about 5'10 5'11 max. Tired of all 5'10 guys or weak 5'11 claiming 6'. Yes Mike Mentzer was 5'8 not 5'9. Why everyone add 1 inch oreven 2 to their heights?
Does honesty still exists? Great proof. Arnie again 6 to 6'0.5 max peak! No more

Tell me Why do you say Ken was 6'0? Just because he claimed or was listed at 6'0? Learn to think by yourself. People usually exaggerate heights. Maybe he was 5'11 and is what I really think and he was and actually looked. Now compare Ken at 5'11 with Arnold. Compare Arnold next to Lou Ferrigno who was 6'3.5 max he claimed 6'4 and 6'5. But you can visit Rob's page where Lou is listed. He had 3 inches on Arnold at least. Arnold was maybe 6'1 at morning. Arnold again 6'0.5 max peak. In Hollywood in his bodybuilding carrer 6'2 ok....

Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Oct/18
@Pierre: Yeah, Joe's shoes are pretty flat too. I can't say without a clearer shot, but I'd think certainly not more than 2 cm tops, but those type of flip flops Ken is wearing are among the flattest men's shoes. Rob would know better than me exactly what flip flops like that add. I agree the difference winds up 1.5" max, but between footwear and posture with Joe also resting on Ken's shoulder, I wouldn't doubt Ken was 2" taller barefoot in equal posture. Notice in my first post I said IF Ken was 183 cm. I can't say he definitely was, but fwiw, he didn't too short to me even posing on stage with a peak Lou Ferrigno. You're right that Joe was old enough to shrink, but even a middle-aged Joe looked taller than a roughly 5'9" Frank Zane and gaining weight doesn't always make you shrink. Steven Seagal didn't seem to lose much height until his 60's and even Marlon Brando maintained his height fairly well.

@jakson: If you just give anyone whatever height you want then of course you can always say Arnold is shorter. Joe being under 5'9" is just your opinion. I always heard he was more like 5'10". Vince Basille was not affiliated with Arnold so clearly his story of measuring Arnold 6'1.5" was not to maintain Arnie's image. He would have never said many other things if he was worried about Arnold's image. He was definitely taller than a flat 6'0" peak. He'd still measure at least 5'11".
Pierre said on 24/Oct/18
@Rising=how do you think Joe Weider's shoes are giving him,they are looking very flat mocasins,maybe a fraction more than Ken's flip flops.Yes Joe forces a little bit his posture,but i don't see 2 inches at the top of their heads,big max 1.5 inches;and the pic was very probably made around 1977(see the gym behind them) and Joe Weider was 57/58 years old with weight gain.I don't see him a full 5"10' here

@Pierre: Waller has at least an inch on Weider even though he's at a disadvantage: Click Here How much do flip flops like that add? And Joe is forcing his posture while Ken is casual.

jaksonistall said on 23/Oct/18
You guys need glasses. The pic Arnold next to ken waller who claims to be 183cm doesn't proves nothing! You clearly see Arnold is 1 feet closer to the camera. Stop cheating. Look at Arnold proportions look about the same height or even shorter. Bad pic for compare. Arnold was 6 foot or 6'0.5 and today is max 5'11.
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Oct/18
@Fineas: I don't believe you because that pic is from 2013 when Arnold himself claimed he had shrunk to 6'0.5" so he's obviously not 6'1" five years later. That 6'0.5" was probably in shoes making him 5'11.25" or 5'11.5". Furthermore, Trump might have been 6'2" at his peak, but he was nowhere near 6'3" except in shoes, but he's shrunk just like Arnold has. He was no more than 6'1" by 2013 and has only been in the 6'0.5"-6'1" since then himself. Don't believe me? Look at Trump with Mark Sanchez(an actual 6'2") in 2012.

@houss: Good pics. If Waller was 183 then Arnold could be close to 187 there or at least 186. And Glover was at least 190 cm or a weak 6'3" back then so Arnold measures up well, though Glover has worse posture and a disadvantage.
Bradley said on 22/Oct/18
30 feet from me recently. Weak 6-1 is my guess 2018.

He’s definitely 6’1” nowadays. Don’t believe me? Well Donald trump is at the least 6’2” maybe even 6’3” but that was most likely peak height but this is a photo of them Click Here.

@Real Annonymous: That's what I tend to think as well. If Vince were to lie, I don't see why he'd give him so close to what he claims considering some of the other things he's said about Arnold. Vince also said the scale seemed accurate regarding other heights so I think any error would have to be pretty small. Rob's own stadiometer had a 1/8" error so I could see something like that, maybe even 1/4", but since Vince was keeping in mind the possibility it could have been off and still thought it was accurate, I think it had to be close.
THE REAL ANNONYMOUS said on 15/Oct/18
Hey Rising... Im gonna go with Vince Basile's measurement of 6'1.5

Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Oct/18
As for Arnold, I'm certainly open to the possibility he was only 6'1" flat peak, but I haven't ruled out the 6'1.5" figure back in 1969 either. Not the best pics, but at least a series of pics of Arnie and Lou Ferrigno from the 25th anniversary of Pumping Iron in 2002: Click Here Click Here Click Here Here's Arnold's footwear: Click Here and Lou's footwear in a pic with 6'2" Triple H that night: Click Here That was November, which was the same month I read Arnold had his hip replacement so either it was later in the month or that date was wrong.

I don't want to keep going on about Clint's height here as we're not likely to settle Arnold's height based on him anyway, but the solid 6'1"/185-186 cm figure for Clint in 2004 sounds plausible since he still had at least an inch on Laurence Fishburne with looser posture, but he was shorter than Freeman by that point and much shorter than Tim Robbins. However, 6'2.25" is too low for early 90's Clint with Morgan Freeman. Tommy Lee Jones was supposedly 6'0.25" peak so still near it age 53-54 and Clint was somewhat taller with loose posture standing a bit behind him and you can see Tommy about 1.5" taller than a shrunken James Garner in the same pic.
Canson said on 14/Oct/18
I doubt Clint was over 6’3”. Better chance he was 6’2.5-.75 and around 6’4” in shoes than him being 6’3.5-.75 barefoot.

@Mario6': I can't stop laughing at you whining about everything being "not fair." You sound like a spoiled child. If you're going to waste my time like this then at least quote me accurately and support your statements with evidence like I have. Dolph was 6'4". No more, no less, and yes, he was taller than Clint. Clint was clearly taller in '95-'96 than he was in 2000. 190 was his height around '93 as I showed with 188-189 Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman, but 191 could have been his peak. And yes, he's struggling with 6' these days and I think there's a good chance he's around 182 these days.
Pierre said on 12/Oct/18
@Rising=In pictures "festival Deauville 2000 Space Cow Boys" i see Clint something like similar height or max one inch taller than Tommy Lee Jones,and Tommy looks to me something around 5"11' in this pictures.
CristopherAlex said on 12/Oct/18
Average shrink of a 60 years old is about 1 inch or 1'.25 max. I see Eastwood at 6'2 in the early 90's and 6'1.25 in 2000. I think he was 6'3 in his peak an Arnold 6'1 max. I have to agree people inflated heights and I'm sure Easwood and Arnold inflated 1 inch their heights. 'I'm convinced Arnold inflated his height more than Eastwood. Eastwood maybe add 1 inch I read he once claimed 6'4 but in two ocassions claim I was 6'3 and other one: I'm 6'3 in 1977 after his movie Josey Wales.
Rob own Eastwood words: I'm 6'3. Why list him at 6'3.75. Please downgrade
Mister lennon said on 12/Oct/18
Clint was a solid 6'3 peak.
And about a solid 6'2 in the 90s. Tell how he looked taller than 6'2 morgan freeman. Tell me how how he looked clealy taller than gene hackman. Jim carrey was 187 mninimum at peak and clint in his 60s has at least 1cinch on him, if not more. Jeff daniels was 189-190 peak, and clint in his 60s as least as tall as him, if not taller.
And clint was wearing lifts with all of them? Please , this is foolish, ridiculous and non sense.
Clit was a 6' 2 guy in his 60s. And a solid or strong 6'3 peak.

Arnold was a solid 6"1 peak.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Oct/18
@Canson

I'd have thought 5'10.5" or .75" for him today.
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Oct/18
Clint claimed 6'4", but he was regularly listed at 6'3" in the late 80's and early 90's during the time of The Dead Pool, The Rookie, Unforgiven, In the Line of Fire etc. He was about 190 cm then or 190.5, especially during the earlier part of that stretch since Neeson looked about an inch taller in Dead Pool. I still think he was more like 6'3.5" peak, but I'll admit it's possible he was 6'3"-6'3.25" peak and didn't shrink much until his mid to late 60's, but the earliest he could have been 187 cm would be the LATE 90's. Anyway, this is really a discussion for Clint's page.

Back to Arnold, still looked tall with Lou Ferrigno in 2001: Click Here If you look at the top of James Cameron's page, you'll see Arnold about 3 cm shorter that same year, but Arnold's posture is a bit worse so Arnold may have still been a full 6'1" if Cameron was 6'2". @Barry Fl: I largely agree. Going off memory, I had thought The Sixth Day and Collateral Damage were when Arnold started looking shorter, but that may even be slightly off. It seems like it might directly coincide with Arnold's hip replacement when he was 55, which is also a normal time to begin losing noticeable height.

I can't stop laughing when you say he was very close to 6'2.5 in 2000! lol I just watched Space cowboys and he looks 6'1. A lot of pics from 2000. You are blind dude.He clearly was in the 6'1 range by that time a 70 year old like him was nearly lost 4-5 cm by 2000. Again Clint was 190 or 191 luckyly

Your argument is not fair too.. You can't even see his shoes and floor. Looks he has more advantage on angles. Those are not good photos. I have watched all his movies and Clint looks max 2 inches on 5'11 guys in the 90's. He was 6'1.5 range in 1995. So you can laugh what you want. Tired of people who inflated heights and do not even know what is a honest height barefoot. Clint was probaby 191 cm in his 20's which is 6'3 or 6'3 1/8. 6'3.75 is a joke. Dolhp Lundgren was 6'3.75 or 6'4 max and his propotions are bigger than him and taller. And pllease dont say there are not pics together ok.. but you can clearly see he was never 6'3.75. I can go with 6'3 and 1/8 and in the 90's he was 6'1.75 with luck. Today he is in the 6' range wake up
Mario6' said on 10/Oct/18
Rob I remember it from the movie "Any which way you can" 1980. Eastwood claim 6'3 and 210 and he described how he train for the boxing scenes. I guess he was 50 by that time. 6'3.25 tops peak.
Mario6' said on 10/Oct/18
Clint was 189-190 cm in 1980. His own claim what he said on an interview magazine." I'm a 210 pounds and 6'3. In the 90's was about 187 cm. Since the 90's he started loosing height fast
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
@Rising: that seems low for Clint imho as well. 187cm? I could buy 6’2-6’3 as I don’t believe (anymore) he was over 6’3 like he’s listed. That was likely a shoe height
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
Max peak was 6’1” flat. Wasn’t over

Today looks 5’11 still. Not under I doubt and not over
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Oct/18
@Rampage: That sounds about right. I have to watch some Clint films again from that period, but I believe he was still close to Jeff Daniels' height in Blood Work(2002). I do remember him looking noticeably shorter than even the mid 90's by the time of Space Cowboys.

@Mario6': That was a statement, not an argument. Not an accurate statement either. Clint was well known to be a towering man so you really have no idea what you're talking about. Go look at him in his 20's with Rock Hudson and tell me he was only 6'2.5". I guess Rock Hudson was never even 6'4". Again, 6'2.5" was roughly Clint's height in 1995 as you can see with Jim Carrey the same year as the Arnold video. 186 cm for 1995 Clint is one of the most laughable things I've read. Here's Clint in 1996 with Donald Sutherland: Click Here Click Here Click Here

You don't have idea how tall is a legit 6'3 guy barefoot. Clint was 6'2.5 in his 20's. He clearly looks 186 cm range in the Oscars with Arnie who ws 184 cm maybe he had heels.

@Mario6: Funny how you claim Clint was 187 cm and not above 6'2" in his 60's/the 90's. You do realize that includes 1990? Clint was still near 6'3" or at least 190 cm when he did Unforgiven and In the Line of Fire in 1992-93. For one example, he was no shorter than a 6'3" or 190 cm Danny Glover in 1992: Click Here and taller than a solid 6'2" Morgan Freeman in 1993: Click Here and he was also still comfortably taller than Gene Hackman in '93: Click Here Maybe Hackman wasn't a full 6'2" anymore, but he was still at least a solid 6'1" guy. Here's Clint in 1995 with 6'1.5" listed Jim Carrey: Click Here and even a 68 year old Clint in '98-'99 with 6'1.25" listed Denis Leary: Click Here I'm not at all sure Clint shrunk to 187 range before his early 70's.

Here's some good footage of the two at the '95 Oscars: Click Here Arnold doesn't really look more than maybe an inch shorter. Here's a full photo of the two, albeit from a high angle: Click Here It at least shows their footwear, but I can't see more than maybe a 3 cm difference. The difference is bigger in this '93 photo: Click Here but it depends on who is dropping more height. Don't know about the angle, but here's 1988: Click Here Probably a difference of 1.5" or so then.
Barry Fl said on 8/Oct/18
I really don't think there's any big conspiracy or surprise here - I think Arnold was a touch over 6'1 in his early adulthood and has lost height in recent decades - leaving him around 5'11 now. It's hardly inexplicable or beyond the realms of possibility.
Mario6' said on 7/Oct/18
I full agree Pierre said on 2/Oct/18
Arnold always looked as a legit 6 footer in his first movies. I can't go over 6'0.5. Yes wearing shoes or good angles could looked 6'1 max.
Mario6' said on 7/Oct/18
Clint was 190-191
Arnold 183-185. I can't go less or more somewhere that range I guess.
Clint in the 90's looked a bout 6'1.5-6'1.75. Funny saying he was over 6'2 in his 60's.
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Oct/18
@danielgb: You'll have to provide some evidence for that for it to be "the end" because most understandably believe Clint was at least 6'3". 6'2.5" sounds believable for his height in the mid 90's. @Barry: Yeah and imo, he looks even more so now than 10 years ago. The Phil Bronstein interview from 2008 is interesting. Bronstein said he was "6 foot if I'm lucky" and he did tell me Arnold's 6'1" claim seemed entirely possible assuming no lifts in his shoes, but then it depends on how lucky Bronstein is because he really didn't look like he'd have near 4" on 5'8" Sharon Stone when they were married and he often wore cowboy boots then. Here's one example: Click Here Sharon really is or was a pretty solid 5'8", but maybe Bronstein was closer to 5'11" without shoes and 6' in shoes making Arnold's 6'1" figure from 2008 in shoes as I suspected.

Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Oct/18
I don't see Arnie any shorter than 5'11" or any taller than 5'11.5" these days, but his height loss isn't such a mystery. He was still looking around 6'1" to me until at least '98 or '99, but then he had a motorcycle crash in '01, hip replacement in '02, broken femur in '06, stress fracture in his right leg in 2016. He also had at least a knee surgery back in the early 70's. The '02 hip replacement explains why Arnold was only looking 6'0" while promoting T3 and running for governor. He could still look a strong 6'0" at times during his first term as governor.

@houss: I never said Bridges was 6'2". I could see a chance for Arnold at 6'1.5" peak, but also closer to 6'1" since he had claimed that earlier in the year before Basille measured him taller so I put Bridges in that same 6'1"-6'1.5" range peak, not 6'2". If Clint Eastwood was solidly in the 6'3" range in the 70's then Bridges didn't look less than 6'1" to me in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, but now Bridges might be a flat 6'0" and maybe looking more 5'11" range with posture.

Watch Commando scenes Airport and Airplane in web or on video(Commado 1984/1985 Arnold was just 37/38 years old i doubt he lose height in this period) ,the tall guy next to Arnold is Bob(Robert) Lee Minor,he's listed 6"2'in web.In aiport scene when they walk you can see their respective shoes,which are looking very similar.In the airplane just before they sit down Bob remove his hat and he's standing very close to Arnold,for me he looks at least 2 inches taller than Arnold.Watch pictures in web Arnold/Vernon Wells,Arnold seems to me just a little bit taller than him by considering their postures,something like maximum 4cm.Vernon looks 5"10'range imo next to Rob (5"11'? in his prime?)

Rising - 174 cm I don't think Jeff bridges was 6'2" at all , Arnie was a professional bodybuilder and his excuse for height loss is excessiv training , surgeries...,but bridges wasn't a bodybuilder at all and be look 181 max next to Reynolds

Grizz is right I think. Patrick is Arnold’s true peak height. No way 6’2”. Also as jjtallish said bodybuilders in the 70s-80s were quite short making Arnold look extremely tall. I wouldn’t be surprised if there heights were exaggerated also. 3 inches in height is just too much to lose in imo especially considering Arnold was involved in fitness (think of all the chin-ups he did). Also not one of his kids being his peak height makes it pretty obvious. As an example Amitabh Buchan was true 6’1.5 his son is 6’3”.

@houss: Those pics are 35-40 years after Stay Hungry and Bridges is noticeably shorter than he was in the 70's, which is why Rob lists his current height an inch below his peak height. The only pic where you can compare height anyway is the last pic from the screening and Bridges wasn't wearing those heels for the screening. Bridges looking barely 6'0" there doesn't mean that was his height in his 20's. An inch loss by your mid 60's is not particularly uncommon.

@Houss=when you click your picture number two you can see others pictures,inwhich you can see the big shoe advantage of Jeff Bridges.
Canson said on 30/Sep/18
I think peak 6’1.25 maybe but wouldn’t surprise me if he’s 6’0.75 peak either

Barefoot he was close to the same height as Jeff Bridges in thin shoes. He has to have been at least 6'1. Claiming anything below that is delusion. Anywhere in the 6'1-6'1½ range for Arnold - I'd have to look at him more closely to see where he would fall.

Strange guy, during his peak he looked massive and tall in some movies (T1, The Running man, Red Heat) but not that big in others like T2, Connan or Commando. Since 2000 he obviously lost several height and muscle weight.
In my opinion: 184 at peak and 180/79 now.

This children argument is non sense at all. Donald sutherland is taller than kiefer. Morgan freeman is taller than his sons. Sean connery is taller than jason. Peak clint eastwood was taller than his sons. John wayne was taller than his son patrick. Stallone was taller than his son. Etc, etc.

Arnold was a true 6"1.5.
grizz said on 26/Sep/18
Ahsan, that's a good point. There are situations when kids get shorter than their tall dads (I'd know that, I'm shorter than my dad), but EVERY one of his 5 kids? Highly unlikely. I think Patrick is as tall his dad at his peak.
Davejvz said on 26/Sep/18
Arnold still looks closer to 6ft or 6ft than 5'11 today. He can pull off a good 6'1 without big shoes/boots. Not bad for his age. Was def 6'2 in his prime.
Pierre said on 26/Sep/18
@Jtallish=Next to Chet yorton listed 5"11'(real full 5"11'?)he looks maybe? one inch taller than him(good picture" Arnold Scwharzennegger Chet Yorton" in web with lot's of bodybuilders).He was 19,i don't know if he had finish his growth?It's interesting imo because in this picture we can see different morphologies, he has very long legs compared to Chet's legs but he's around Chet's height
jjtallish said on 26/Sep/18
Ahsan said on 25/Sep/18
Because he never was 6'1.5. Just marketing or adding a full inch easily. His real height was max 6'0.5.
Today he is in the 5'10.5 range. He could pass as a 6'1.5 man around short people. Dont forget in the 70's when he was a bodybuilder all or most of them were 5'9 average. Arnold looked taller than he was. Strong 6 footer 100%
Ahsan said on 25/Sep/18
I’ve got a problem with his peak height. If he was 6’1.5 in his prime then why aren’t any of his children that height. Normally children particularly boys end up taller than their fathers. None of his children are his peak height estimation. Even his former wife is quite tall. I’m 6 inches taller than my father. I know it’s notvslways the case if the father is really tall but one would think one of his boys would atleast be his peak height.
Pierre said on 24/Sep/18
Mike o Hearn imo looks something like 2 inches taller than Stan Efferding listed 6"0'(good picture in web=very close one to the other and face to face,by considering the postures)
In the picture Rob/ Haftor Julius you can see the mark 6"0' corresponds to Julius tip of nose.
Now look at Stan Efferding next to Julius(good picture in web back to back same posture)=Stan in comfortable sneakers and julius barefoot=Considering his advantage of shoes(around 1 inch imo) it seems to me difficult to see Stan as high as Julius tip of nose imo ,even with a small error of appreciation

Rob I totally agree this guy. Arnold is about 5'10.5 nowdays and in his peak was 6'0 or 6' 1/4
All he says makes sense and as a big fan I watched his movies and he always looked 6'1 max in his first movies with shoes. So clearly was max 6 to 6'0.25. Knowing he is about 5'10.5 and looking at him you see even all his problemas he holds a good posture and is impossibe he ever was 6'1 or over please!
Here in the spanish interview the youg lady says he is about 1.80 m and this interview was in 2014. Arnold was max 1'84 m. We all know Hollywood is marketing and 6'2 sounds better than 6 of course. His real height barefoot was 6 or 6'0.25. He was never more than 183.5 cm
At 5:50 she says: " He is not ver tall he is 180 cm max
Click Here

However in my opinion people should have more respect to Arnold because he is a 71 year old man and he is tall for his age. Sounds disrespectful when people say he is not very tall... They forget he is older than in the 90's and Arnold probably lost 3 cm which is a considerable amount height. Arnold is tall for his age but I hate when people says he is not very tall. They maybe think they are going to see a young Arnold in his bodybuilding years when he was a legit 6'0 or 184 man barefoot.

To ManKo:
So as I said Arnold Arnold is 179 180 max. And Mike is 187 cm. I met him and I can guarantee this is true. In 2014 I had the privilege to see Mike at Gold Venice training I'm 6'2.5 and he was clearly shorter the guy is around 187 max
gunton said on 22/Sep/18
yes I agree If he "lost anything" is just 3 mm or 1/8 inch. He's been doing really heavy dead lift and squats since he was 15 years but he has great genetics and holds good posture. He still young so if he lost something the absolute max could be 1/8 but probably he doesnt lost anything
ManKo said on 21/Sep/18
@gunton maybe you are the one downgrading heights. If Mike and Big Z are around 187cm, then Eddie Hall is around 183cm, and Rob is clearly wrong, which I don’t think it’s the case. Eddie Hall is clearly around 186cm and Big Z is around 2 inches taller.

I met Arnold more than once and I always said that he was around 180cm. 5'10.5 is around 179cm, so it’s not a big difference. People heights fluctuates around the day and due to footwear there is always going to be some minor error while estimating someone´s else height.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Sep/18
@gunton Mike O'Hearn is only 49 and always hold a good posture, i don't think he lost anything yet.
TruthSeeker said on 21/Sep/18
Arnold is about 5'10 1/2 today. I am 5'10 flat and met Tony Doherty in person at Arnold Classic Australia and we are the same exact height. I think Arnold at his peak was about 6'0 to 6'0 1/2 tops. 6'1 1/2 is too generous LOL.

Arnold and Tony Doherty interview video for 2018 Click Here

Here his son Joseph Baena for height says 6'0 and then quickly changes his tune to 6'1 maybe (Hollywood casting height) Click Here

Is Arnold genetically taller his sons in his youth? I don't think so if anything shorter and or similar height. The reality is Hollywood is bigger than life and certainly 6'2 sounds much better versus 6'0 for action hero movie star status.
santgr said on 19/Sep/18
Rob how tall do you think Superstar Billy Graham was in his prime? His billed height was 6ft4 and he looked really tall in all photos and videos but nowadays he looks under 6ft. Must be all those health problems with his liver transplant and surgeries. There was a time when he made Arnold looked small...now that's an achievement lol.
Editor Rob
He is overdue a page, I think he did suffer badly with back problem and lost a lot of height.

Man you always upgrade heights. I also met Arnold and he not 5'11 he is 5'10.5. Same Mike Ohearn who sas him several times at Venice training he is not 190 cm. He is 187 range.

I don't think he was taller than evender maybe can look same height as him but not taller then , and evender him self never was over 186cm
Pierre said on 18/Sep/18
@Danimal =In the old picture arnold/Evander(the first pic you posted on 14 /Sep/18)=
For me Evander in reality is taller than Arnold and break his posture to talk face to face with Arnold,watch how many his head is in front of his body/ his shoulders, and even i think his head tilts on the left side then he has a disadvantageous posture for his height in the pic.
By considering Arnold's hairs i don't see Evander really shorter than Arnold here even in his disadvantageous posture.
In the picture 1996 Premiere of Eraser,even if Evander is standing more distant to the camera and has no hairs, i see him taller than Arnold.
gunton said on 17/Sep/18
Mike O'Hearn is 6'2 on the nose no more. All of these guys add 1 inch and liea bout height. Mike was 6'2 on the nose 187'5. Today is maybe 187 not less. He has good genetics and I dont think he lose height If he did maybe just 1/4 inch
ManKo said on 16/Sep/18
@Danimal 5'9 3/4"

With Eddie Hall Zydrunas really looks around 190cm. I met him at the Arnold Classic, took a photo with him and he really towered over me. In my opinion he is really around 190cm.

Arnold is shorter than several people he was once taller than.

Mike must be around 190cm. I know Zydrunas and he is around 190-191cm , and Mike is as tall as him:

Click Here

Big Z was listed as 6'2" (188cm) at the 2005 Mr. Olympia. I'm just saying. It's possible he's 6'3" (190-191cm), but he was given a shorter listing in 2005. Mike is around 50 years old and it's possible he has lost height (.5"-.66"). He did look at least 6'3" in his prime (I've even seen 6'4" listings for him). Here's Lou Ferrigno (pre-hip replacement) with Mike: Click Here
