I think we all just need to remember he’s a 72 year old man. Probably had the most of his “shrinking” in the last couple years after the photos with Bloom and whatnot. He’s aged quite a bit in the last 5 years.

You are a funny guy just posting photos where the girl is a midget and the other guys are short.. The tallest ones are just on the second line.
In this pic the guy with blue dark shirt on Arnold's left is 5'10.5 max Arnold looks just over 6'0 on who is on the left :

If Arnold was actually 5'10 then people would be insisting he was 5'8. Mind you, that will probably come.

Arnold is closer to the camera so he looks exactly as tall as Reg Park but he was slighly shorter than him. Reg Park claim 6'1 ok lets say he is 6'0.5 Arnold 6'0.25 ( I don't believe anyword from bb) People always lie on height or inflated. Even If Reg Park was 6'1 Arnold was about half inch shorter.

This's not how a 5'10" look like , 5'10" looks short specially when they are bulky , i think people here are trying to make arnold look shorter than he was to please their selves
Thukk said on 19/Mar/19
Clearly Arnold is 5'10 and 5'10.5 at best just as Joeyb33 said on 3/Mar/19
Lots of photos are proving the truth and I think his real height was 6'0.25 range and 0.5 at best. That was his real height. We have evidences and testimonies. Real 6'1 guys said this adn real 6'2 edged him.
Guy on the left (Joeyb33 said on 3/Mar/19) Own words I'm 6'2.25 Arnold is 5'10.5 at best

With Antonio Brown who was 5-10 measured

Without doubt Arnold is about 5'10 and a chance full stretch could be 5'10.25 and in his prime 6 or just over 6'0. If you add footwar angles marketing etc and adding wrong percepctions of real height people still think Arnold was over 6'1 which was always fake.
billionaireslayer said on 19/Mar/19
6ft prime, very tall for a bodybuilder, but never came across as a 6'1 or 2 guy like James Cameron who always edges him out. Looks huge in Pumping Iron due to the fact most of the other BB in that film are around 5'3 - 5'9, outside of Lou who I believe was 6'2ish specially compared to Ralph Moeller. Being 6ft prime, Hollywood can easily make that 6'2 with shoes and effects. Currently around 5'10 or strong 5'9. Also I was in Mall of America when jingle all the way was filmed, I was only around 10 then but I knew a staff sergeant when I was in the Army who was around 6'1 who was also there and about 25 then who said Arnold was shorter then him prolly around 5'10.
Sotiris Gravas said on 18/Mar/19
@houss Saying Arnie looks 3" taller b/c of bad angles and poor posture is one thing... saying he's actually 3" taller than Orlando Bloom is tantamount to wasting everyone's time.

Arnie is not more than 5'10" now, ppl have already posted evidence proving this; anything over that is due to bad angles... poor posture... and lifts.


@Rising You can doubt all you want till the cows come home... he's still not more than 5'10" now. Deal w/ it. If you thought 5'11.5" in recent years, then clearly you thought wrong. Perhaps an eye exam is in order. Or perhaps your cognitive faculties are failing you. I'd look into that. Does it sound like I'm annoyed w/ you, Rising...? Think yes.

I had the chance to meet him at the Arnold these past days. It was like a quick handshake and I couldn't take a pic with him but I wanted to watch him and make sure how tall he is and how tall he could be in his prime. I'm just over 5'11 at morning exactly 5'11 1/8 but go down to 5'10.5 at night. I can say I'm slightly taller than him not a full inch but half inch easy. I'm sure he is in the 5'10 range more 5'10. He shrunk I could see he has long legs and I stimate he could lost 2 full inches but this is the most I would say overall he looked pretty good and fit. He was in the 6' range and maybe Arnie was 6'1 right after bed in his 20's but honestly is impossible he was over 6'1. He was more a very strong 6 footer. My guess is 6 and 3/4 in his heyday
Rising174cm said on 16/Mar/19
I'm a bit surprised to see another downgrade for Arnold. 5'11" flat is certainly possible, but I've still thought he could look more 5'11.5" even in recent years. I still doubt anything under 5'11" or maybe 5'10.75" at the absolute worst.

Peak - 183
Today - 179
Canson said on 14/Mar/19
There’s something going on with that pic, Viper. Maybe footwear or he’s standing on something or camera. That’s hard to believe Arnold has lost that much height. I could see maybe 2-3” but not 4 or 5”. AB is prob a weak 5’10” based on his combine measurement so that would make Arnold 5’8” range next to him. Best case prob weak 5’9”
Myself said on 14/Mar/19
@viper
But he's not standing as well and you can see his shoulder level is higher. I wouldn't exclude a 5'10 flat for Arnold, but maybe he can stretch up another half an inch, although I believe some people here generally over exaggerate the amount of height he loses with posture.
cmillzz said on 14/Mar/19
@Viper what do you think his peak height was if he’s struggling for 5’10 these days?
houss said on 14/Mar/19
Viper this's not the best picture we can't see their feet , maybe this guy is stepping in something
Mister lennon said on 14/Mar/19
Today minimum 180.
Peak minimum 185
Sceptic said on 14/Mar/19
If Arnold is shorter than 178 cm in the morning man, so he really must be no more than 175-176 cm now.
But it means, that height of almost all people overestimated... very overestimated.

For example he is definitely taller the Orlando Bloom, who was measured barefoot at 179 cm!

He is also taller than George Bush, who is claimed to be 5'11"

He looks like a waxeork in the PR photo
Zadok said on 12/Mar/19
The truth is finally arriving.. Clearly the 6'1.75-6'2 claim and the 6'2 Hollywood listing was always a lie. We finally know Arnold is in the 5'10 range nowdays and probably 5'10 on the nose. I guess he was 6' range in his peak. I'd say 6'0.5 at best. Adding his footwear on an early moment of the day he could be 6'1.5 range in his peak or 6'1.75. But his real height barefoot I stimate 6'range 6'0.5 at best. Just watch all his young photos and videos. He never looked like a legit 6'1 guy, but close.
Arnold should be listing at 6'1 peak and 5'10.25 nowdays in march 2019

Arnold is certainly max 5-10
Canson said on 11/Mar/19
@Viper: I doubt Arnold is only 5’9” today. He still looks close enough to 5’11 if he stands straight. I doubt he’s less than maybe weak 5’11”
Sceptic said on 11/Mar/19
Schwarzenegger has never been more than 5'10.5".
This is the evidence of a witness: "Meter and seventy eight. This is precisely correct. I saw him on Red Square, when he in 90 or 91 year, when he filmed in "Red Heat"... I am 179 cm, and he wasn't taller then me". - Click Here

Now Schwarzenegger is weak 5'10" at best. On photos Arnold in shoes with heals looks the same as barefoot Dennis Wolf, who is claimed to be 5'11" - Click Here

Click Here
Click Here

See also Arnold Schwarzenegger with Ian Somerhalder, who is listed as 5'9.25" here - Click Here

So Arnold was 178-179 cm on peak and 176-177 cm now.

In shoes I don't think Arnie seemed over 6ft with that 192cm guy.
RolyFlo said on 10/Mar/19
@Myself We don't even know If the photo was taken on an earlier time. The truth is Arnold is 5'10.5 not 5'11 and there are alot of evidences. You can argue 5'10.75 full stretching and I'd say maybe 2 hours after bed. The listing is still higher than his real height
RolyFlo said on 9/Mar/19
Anyway I think the average match 100% on his peak height. He probably was 6'2 with casual footwear.
Myself said on 9/Mar/19
@Joeyb33
That's exacly what i've guessed him at for a long time! He's 5'11 only earlier during the day imo.
RolyFlo said on 9/Mar/19
I've been watching all his movies since I was kid and I find amazing how he is getting old. I will always love him. We are living the end of a unique golden time when the 80's were the best time movies.. When you see Arnold you see a unique being in all terms

Ey Joeyb33 tell us your thoughts on Arnold's height. If you are 6'2.25 as you said Arnold is 5'10 max..What's your guess dude
Pierre said on 8/Mar/19
@RolyFlo= Comparisons Arnold /Brigitte Nielsen = Click Here = the floor seems to me regular here,particularly when i look at the joint lines of the floor behind them.You can watch in web other pics with Arnold in the left place and brigitte in the right place and their heights don't fluctuate Click Here Click Here .Brigitte in lots of pics bent a lot her knee ,she's in relaxed posture .Here is a height chart with Brigitte and Kristanna Loken (the right girl in the pic),from 2014 = Click Here .I guess kristanna a weak 5"11' ( Click Here and with 5"10.25'Josh = Click Here ).Brigitte was thus only in his 50 in 2014 in good shape and very probably does not lose really height.Then i guess Brigitte was not really over 182 in his prime.In this pic Red Sonja we can see her boots with a very slim heel = Click Here and here the heel of Arnold's boots which is thicker = Click Here .Then imo i guess the difference of height between Arnold and Brigitte is slim.
Pierre said on 7/Mar/19
Click Here = When you look at the 6"0' mark of the scale =6"0' is the height of Joe Manganiello's eyes .In lots of pics when Arnold and Joe are standing to the same distance to the camera,you can see Arnold is clearly under Joe's eyes = here with Joe slouching a lot = Click Here .Here let's say about the same posture = Click Here ,here or here arnold very straight and Joe in relaxed posture = Click Here Click Here .Here about the same posture = Click Here

If they were on same flat floor they would be pretty similar and Brigitte was 182-183 max.

RolyFlo said on 7/Mar/19
Rob here's another photo with Brigitte Niesen who was measured 182 cm at Guiness World Record and probably just roundep up to 6'0. You can see Arnie looks to have some higher floor flat.
Click Here
I struggle to see Arnold above 1'85. However I've read Manko (who met him and post a photo next with him agree Arnie probably was 184-185 in his peak and nowdays 179-180.
I'm saying all this because I'm surprised on you 187 cm guess knowing you are pretty precise. I've already seen Sonja and even sometimes they look exactly 6'0 and with luck 6'0.5 Arnie.
Editor Rob
I can see why many have Arnie at 6ft 1 flat...quite often he has looked in that range and did have a listing earlier in his bodybuilding career at 185.
RolyFlo said on 6/Mar/19
@Rob wow I didn't imagine you would say 187 cm highest guess in his peak. How he could shrunk 7 cm? 4-5 cm is more reasonable to me. Overall he never looked over 6'1 barefoot.
Editor Rob
A guy like Arnie who spent a lifetime with weights and also doing films would lose more than your average man by 70.
Pierre said on 6/Mar/19
I have watch some pics of Arnold,he looks always in good shape and his posture isn't looking particularly bad to me.

Arnold next to them looked easily six feet, I can't believe that in only 17 months he lost a lot of height, I was sure Arnold would remain 181 cm for several years. Rob, do you really see him today as short as only flat 5'11"?
Editor Rob
This year I think he has reached a point in which he is looking more and more 5ft 11 flat, but just 2 years ago I'd have said he was still over it.
RolyFlo said on 5/Mar/19
@Rob please answer (4/Mar/19) I'm curious on your lowest and hiest guess on the metrical system cm..
Editor Rob
In 2016-2018 I think Arnie at 181 range was still feasible. In 2019 maybe the 180cm is what he is beginning to look more often.

In his peak, 187 is the max I'd go with, 186 the lowest.
Joeyb33 said on 5/Mar/19
Hey Rob it is a picture of the printout pic. But I do have a big head and she has a small head lol
Editor Rob
Yeah, I think maybe it enhanced the size of your head compared to arnie's a bit too, as his head isn't exactly small or anything!
RolyFlo said on 4/Mar/19
They guess him at 5'10 because is what he looks relax and walking but stretching he could hit 5'11. I honestly don't think he is over 5'11 I can't see it and he probably shrunk nealy 2 inches max
Pierre said on 4/Mar/19
Click Here = Imo by this pic Arnold watch around the same range height as Josh(5"10.25') next to Mark Henry( his eyes are somewhere between the mouse and the top of the nose of Mark like Josh )
RolyFlo said on 4/Mar/19
Good morning Rob I'd like to know your lowest and highest guess in his peak (cm and mm ex 185.7 186. 185.5 etc). I find very interesting what do you think since I see how precise you are on heights. Sometimes I consider you can be wrong 1 to 1.5 cm but overall you are pretty good and I enjoy this site being as enterteinemnte to me and of course always trying to find the truth.
How tall would you guess a young Arnie (your honest low guess vs highest guess in cm)
Have a good day

JakeD said on 2/Mar/19
I was was in Columbus, Ohio yesterday, March 1st, for the Arnold Classic again. I had the fortune to high five Arnold as security brought him through the crowd. Again, Im 5 ft 11.5 . I was wearing Adidas ax2 trail running shoes and he was wearing those white sneakers that he has been photographed in a lot lately. We were basically eye to eye with mine maybe slightly higher. So, I would put his current 5ft 11.25 listing as fairly accurate. I will say this though, his head, neck, and shoulders were noticeably rolled forward like a a lot of normal elderly people tend to as they age, so age and injury seems to definitely have affected his height. Another observation was how big his head and hands are and he had thick fingers. I generally wear a size large glove and his hands were noticeably bigger than mine when he high fived me and grasped my hand. All this and my experience from 2006 standing face to face shaking hands with lends evidence to that fact that in his prime he was a big guy. Shinking 2 inches by the age of almost 72 for a guy with his list of injuries is realistic. I would be curious to see how tall he is if stood up straight, feet together, shoulder blades pulled back. Also looking at a of old photos of him I noticed that he tended to have a rather slouched posture when relaxed. My dad, who is 6ft 1 idls the same way, he has poor/slouchy posture which depending on my footwear can make us appear thr same height but when he stands up straight is noticeably taller than me.

Arnie around 5ft 11 again, not over it there.
RolyFlo said on 28/Feb/19
Overall I also believe average is closer to the truth than 6'1.5. @Rob 6'1.25 must be the listing and last listing after milleniums debating his height
RolyFlo said on 28/Feb/19
He looks identical as Rafa Nadal and maybe same as Federer who is 185 cm. Just comparing him on videos and Arnold has same lenght proportions as Federer. so he was around 185 cm but 183-184 during hiks best movies.
RolyFlo said on 28/Feb/19
I think he was a weak 6'1 guy and he could bust a gut to hit 6'1.5 but he was more a strong 6'0.75 guy 185 cm is the most I can really buy. His 6'2 claim fit with boots

Arnold/Arsenio Hall 1990 = Click Here = the difference of height seems to me slimer here than in the 1992 show
RolyFlo said on 27/Feb/19
@Rob. Yes he looks 6'1 in that clip overall Arsenio is 5'10 not 5'10.5 and Arnold looks about 6-7 cm on him. There's also a chance he could had advantage footwear. He definetely shrunk but he never was over 6'1. He was as tall as his peak height on the clip so 6'1 is the most I can buy for Arnie.

Rob watch this clip. Arnold in 1992 with Arsenio Hall (5'10). Amazing he looks 4 cm taller than nowdays. He definetely shrunk nearly 2 inches since his 20's. He looks a legit 6'0 or nearly 6'1 in the video but I guess he was max 185 cm in his days. Wtching this I see 5 cm difference. Good clip where you can see Arnold was far of the 6'1.5 claim and 6'2. What do you think Rob

He looks at least 6ft 1 there.

This is a good proof showing Arnold was a 6'0 guy:
Lou Ferrigno was 192 cm in his peak. Well I see 10 cm difference or nearly 4 inches. So now anyone can say again Arnold was 6'2 lol. He was 6 and 6'0.25 is the highest mark I could argue

Sotiris Gravas said on 16/Feb/19
@Barry Know that when I call you a "fanboy," it's coming from a good place. Growing up, I was a big Arnie fan ("Predator" is one of my favorite movies). If he lost more height than you initially suspected, does that lessen your admiration of the man...? It shouldn't. I think aging actors feel they still need to maintain a certain image; even if they don't want to wear lifts, they do it more for their fans' perception of them...
Mileno5'9" said on 16/Feb/19
@Sotiris Gravas said on 15/Feb/19
good pic, but how do you know is flat and both are in equal conditions? On the left looks they are higher.. Overall Arnold was just 1 inch on him those years. Arnold was 5'11.25 at that time Peak 6'0.25.
Sotiris Gravas said on 16/Feb/19
@Barry Or maybe you fail to understand that the man is very old, has lost height, and feels he needs to wear lifts. Georges St-Pierre is 37. Arnie is 71. And clearly you're a fanboy, regardless of your age.

All you guys who say Arnold must be only 5'10 because he only looks an inch bigger than people who are 5'9 or whatever.... do you not think these people could be wearing lifts/extra thick footwear? You're always saying Arnold does so, but apparently nobody he ever stands near on a picture would do such a thing!

Arnie is no more than 5'10.25 nowdays. Upgraded by one inch.. amazing. Rob I think you are mistaken in this page without doubt. Do you really think Arnold is 181? He is struggling to hit 179 cm standing tall please..Looks weak 5'10 relax and a bit over is he stands tall for mesaurement

The only way Arnie is 5'11.25" is by way of lifts.

6'1.5 6'2 was just marketing for movies and his bodybuilding career. His real height was 6-6'0.5 barefoot. 6'2 and 6'3 guys have said Arnold was 5'11 6 in the 90's. I can't argue more than 6'0.5 in his best day

@Joeyb33: that’s surprising. I don’t have Arnold that short. Maybe it’s his posture. Brown would likely come out around 5’9.75 since he measured 5’10 1/8 at the combine. I could still see Arnold 5’10”-5’11 worst case

Below is a clip of Arnold and Jeff Bridges in the movie Stay Hungry which came out in 1976 (after Arnolds 6th Mr. Olympia title). I've timestamped the clip at around 50 seconds. If you pause the clip at about 50 seconds right away, you can see Arnold and Jeff Bridges standing face to face and they are nearly even in height with Jeff slightly edging Arnold out. Arnold is even barefoot in the scene and Bridges is wearing shoes (tho the shoes in the scene don't look like they add much height to Bridges height). If Jeff Bridges is listed at 6'1.5" peak then, I could see Arnold at right around that height for his peak as well especially if they measured bodybuilders in the morning during their peak height.

I was just at the doc the other day and at 11:00 am I was 5 ft 11.5 inches tall. I’m 37. That’s the same height that I’ve been since I was 15. Again I met Arnold face to face and shook his hand at the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio in 2006. I was wearing Harley Davidson motorcycle boots and he was wearing his trademark cowboy boots so it’s difficult to say if there was a footwear advantage either way.He easily had at least an inch at minimum on me. Let’s just say that Arnold “busted a gut” stretching out to get that 6’1.5” measurement that Vince Bassille reported and allow for a slight deviation in the accuracy of his stadiometer. I would say that still makes Arnold a strong 6ft 1 at his peak in his early 20s. Also, as a kid I was always taught the concept of rounding up. So I don’t feel that Arnold was ever being deceptive claiming 6’2”. They do not llow me to put 5ft 11.5 on my drivers license so it says 6 ft. Believe or not the average person isn’t obsessed over exact height. When people ask me how tall I am and tell them 5 11 and a half, they say” oh, so you’re basically 6 ft.” Arnold ‘s height loss can easily be attributed to all of the heavy lifting, especially deadlifts and squats, that have compressed his spine overs the years as well as his broken femur, at least one knee operation , hip replacement and I wouldnot surprised if he has some vertebrae fused too. Just look at pics of him from his bodybuilding days and compare them to recent pics. His whole upper body looks compressed,his posture is terrible,and he even walks a lot more labored.

JayT said on 9/Feb/19
Arnold can appear to change height all the time, photographs are not a reliable source. I can stand in a certain way i am eye to eye with my 5'7" girlfriend but if i stand properly upright I look down on her at 5'10". I saw arnold in person at the T3 premiere in 2003 and he was easily 2 inches or more taller than me.
If he stood upright proper stretched out now he's most likely still the 6ft he says he is today, he also Said Joe Manganiello is 5 inches taller than he is at 6'5".
abcde said on 9/Feb/19
Rob i know what you mean, you're right
but my comment was directed to people who describe his height very specific
for example Jefer and Carl Garcia.
Editor Rob
Yeah, I think in most cases if you go to a 1/4 inch for an estimate, that is all most people need to go to.

Sometimes a 1/4 inch can also be a kind of indicator that you might think that somebody is between a range, like 5ft 11.25 could mean you think they might be roughly in 5ft 11-11.5 range but not sure which is the better figure.

I know what you mean abcde - the most I'd ever give someone is (for example) a strong or weak 5'10. The way a lot of people place their guesses (though they're convinced they're truths), you'd think they had Terminator-scan vision! :)

My brother stood next to him in a college bar when Maria was attending Georgetown University about 40 years ago. He said that Arnold looked about 5'11" to my brother's 6'2". That stuck with me because I believed that Arnold was 6'2", like most people.

@Swede2 you are right. In Spain he came for an interview Lara González said : I'm surprised I though he was taller than he really is he must be close to 180 cm! Rob what do you need for more proofs? 11.25 is unfair. He was 11.25 but around 99-2003

Swede2 said on 31/Jan/19
@rob On swedish news television many years ago, maybe around the time when Arnold was first to become Governor they for some reason mentioned a news about Arnolds height that suprisingly he was not very big/tall man but actually just 178cm. I remember seing this at the news and thinking it was not true. I dont remember at all why they did mension this on the regular news in Sweden but they did. Maybe he had gotten measured when becoming governor or something?. But now I have actually read that in some old bodybuilding text he was said to be 178cm so who know.. But I would guess he was and still is taller then that.
JustForFun said on 31/Jan/19
6'1 is 185.5 cm Arnold is struggling at 185 cm peak. I see 184 range peak and the guy who met him also said Arnie was 184-185 peak max! Arnold come on and let'sbe fair. Which one of this guys would you downgrade first? Arnold and Brad Pitt must be first guys !
Canson said on 30/Jan/19
Arnold was probably just 6’1” peak not 6’1.5
JustForFun said on 29/Jan/19
@Rob average peak guess is much closer to the truth than 6'1.5. which is a joke. The guy who measured him or didn't do it well or Arnold was busting a gut or cheating. 6'1 is more than enough for Arnold. It's also known he was 6'0 in Terminator 2 and he was in his 40's. 6'1 is the highest mark you can argue for Arnie. Biggest fan righ here but honestly is what I think and I see comparing him with other dudes in his young days
JustForFun said on 26/Jan/19
Ronny Cox doesn't look to be 6'2 at all in Total Recall! He looks a strong 6'1 guy max 6'1.5. Arnold is clearly 4 cm shorter. Arnold strong 182 cm in the movie 183 peak I can't even see 184 in his peak (6'0.5)

Rob Ronny Cox was a 187 cm guy I think he was close to 6'2 about 6'1.5 range and he has clearly 1-2 inches on Arnold in Total Recall. Everyone who knows this movie can see it. One more proof Arnold was not even 6'1 in his peak! He was 6'0 or 6'0.5 with luck.

My dad told me that he saw him back in either 90 or 92 and said Arnold definetly didn't live up to his big guy personna. My dad, a legit 5'9" guy, said arnold looked at most 3 inches taller than him. So 6'0", could definetly be a posibility for arnold for his peak. Arnold is most likely 5'10" right now at the age of 71

To be fair he looked pretty much 2'' smaller in both pics , so looked near 6'1.5

@Sotiris: You need to watch the actual Rocky film because as I just showed on the Stallone page, they were on stairs for that scene with Burt Young. Stallone was taller throughout the film. And those Reagan pics are all really dodgy angles. That Reeve pic is a much worse angle than the other: Click Here I see nothing in those pics to suggest Arnold was much more than 2" shorter than Chevy Chase. And Burt Reynolds could look 6'1" with his massive lifts.
MarkCharles said on 16/Jan/19
Click Here:
holy moly. It might just be the angle but arnold towers over obama who is 6'1??? maybe 6'0". it's probably just the angle considering i got another photo of them together
Click Here:
and they look roughly the same height. So arnold is probably 5'11" or maybe 6'0" on his best day. As for his peak height i think 6'1" seems about right.
but its really weird because here is a photo of arnold and lou in the early 80's
Click Here:
and arnold maybe looks 2 inches shorter. Lou's peak height was 6'4" and the camera angle is considerably good in both of their favors. So idk. dont forget they didnt even have shoes on so, maybe arnold could have been 6'2"

Maybe Arnold is only 5-11, but he was barley shorter than Christopher reeve in the photo I showed. So how do you back up that?

Please be serious everybody here knows your comment is a joke.. Just waiting. We know Arnold is not even 5'11 nowdays but in the 5'10.25- 5'10.5 range. Legit 5'11 guys met him and and said he was little shorter. Trump in the photo is clearly 1.25 taller than him and Arnold is closer to the camara. I see you don't even know how to judge heights. There's guy here who posted a photo with Arnold his name is ManKo. Read this:
ManKo said on 25/Mar/18
@Andy6footer
Hi Andy,
To be honest I met him briefly and I did not play any attention to his footwear, so I can't say who had the footwear advantage. I can also say that I am about 181.cm in the morning and 179.5cm at night(give or take a few mm) and on the picture he seems to be slightly shorter.

I think that at this point Arnold is 180.5cm in the morning and 178.5 at night. And at his peak he was probably around 184-185cm.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 🤨

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.

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

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.

@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.

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.

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 - 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.

@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.

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.

Looks like about 1cm difference between Schwarzenegger and George H W Bush.

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.
