For all those who believe Arnie is now old, shrivelled up and lost lots of height, here's a recent pic of him and his wife on vacation taken by Paparazzi

Nowhere near his Olympia form but still in helluva good shape for being almost 60. I'm sure his height hasn't shrunk as much either, I'm guessing 6'0.5" barefeet these days, and definitely 6'1.5" in his prime.
dmeyer said on 3/Oct/06
so pundog thinks arnie is 6 feet 2 or 3
Max said on 3/Oct/06
I've measured my height numerous times and I'm 6 feet even. I met Arnold 2 yrs ago, and he was slightly taller than me, but not by alot. My best guess is 6'1-6'2.
mike said on 3/Oct/06
i hope this article goes through, i couldn't link it but here is an interesting article on arnold's height, i just copied and pasted it, i don't know any of these people, but the 2 reporters have interviewed arnold this year say hes a strong 6 footer, and this tall person in the government whose 6'4 says Arnold's 6'1 ish... read on people "Shoshana Lombardi, a manager at a Washington public-relations agency who found herself standing just inches from Schwarzenegger during the filming of "True Lies" in D.C. a decade ago, agrees, saying he's "5-9 -- 5-10 max."
And Laura Noss, once the PR manager for Planet Hollywood in D.C., says she stood next to the restaurant's celebrated co-owner several times in 1995 and was struck by how similar Schwarzenegger was in stature to her 5-7 1/2 sibling.
"It was like looking at my brother -- except Arnold is like three times his size in terms of width," Noss says. "I can assure you, though, that Arnold is not even 5-10. He comes in at a strong 5-8."
Or does he? Could it be that Schwarzenegger's vertical shortcoming is just a tall tale? Edie Lambert and Kevin Riggs both conducted one-on-one interviews with Schwarzenegger this year for Sacramento's KCRA Channel 3, and the reporters are convinced he's around 6 feet.
"That's our best guess," says Lambert, who is 5-10 sans shoes.
Riggs, Lambert says, is about 5-11 1/2. "And Arnold," she says, "definitely is a little taller than both of us."
Tony Strickland, who has a unique vantage point of California's political lineup as one of the state's tallest legislators, says his best guess is 6-1 or 6-2.
"He does wear high boots a lot of times," says Strickland, the 6-4 1/2 Republican assemblyman from Moorpark. "But those guys are crazy if they say he's 5-8 or 5-9.
"I think it's an expectations game. They expect him to be big because he's huge in the movies. Maybe people are surprised he's not 6-7, 6-8. But he's a legitimate 6-1. He's a tall man."

Here's a picture of Arnold with Clint Eastwood (Eastwood is reported to be 6'1.5" nowadays, he was taller in his younger days):

Maybe a bad side on the picture, but yeah, whatever...
jo jo said on 22/Sep/06
Arnold looks to be about 6 feet even. Watch for the scene where he boards a private jet in "Eraser". The 6'3" Nick Chinlund towers over Arnold.

[Editor Rob: chinlund only claims 6ft 2 though...]
Meinhart said on 22/Sep/06
Guy's, Arnold is not and as an adult has never been 6'2, 5'10, 5'11, 6'!!

He is 6'1 and probably 6'1.5 10-20 years ago but no more than that. Anecdotal reports and doggy photos prove nothing, take the pic posted by Ola below of Arn with Ferrigno and you can see that the pic is taken from a low vantage point, this make the difference between their heights seem geater than it is.

Oh and who the hell can tell the difference between 6'1 and 6'0.5 without getting out a tape measure! Answer nobody. If you say you can you are a lier simple as that!
MyKat said on 21/Sep/06
I don't know anything about how shoes are made, but I saw Arnie in Germany, he seemed shorter than my 5' 11". But we were a few feet away. I'd guess about 5' 10".
Ola said on 18/Sep/06
If Arnold was 6'2 then Lou was atleast 6'6. Lou was meassured as 6'5 in his body building contests, seems logic to me... couse its atleast 4 inch between them(maybe even 5): Click Here

So i give Arnold 6'1 back in the days. and 6'05 today
Glenn said on 17/Sep/06
I havnt seen the guy since 1992.so hard to say.wouldnt surprise me if he was 6ft now.would explain the 5-10 claims.he was 6-2 for sure.
H said on 17/Sep/06
About that Arnold should be 6'3" or 6'4" as Jone says:

Arnold was supposed to play The Hulk, but was "not tall enough". 6"4.5' Lou Ferrigno got the part instead. So forget that he should be that tall.
The Judge said on 16/Sep/06
Hello Glenn!...D'you think Arnold has shrunk an inch or more?
He's 59 years old, okay, so it's normal for a man to lose 1, maybe 2 cm but more...
kene said on 15/Sep/06
i beleive his a barefoot 185 in his 20s.. but not 183 is asure.. most body builder are pushing down heights with carry weights..

Hi Mike, I am sure Arnold was that height. Arnold weighed 260 lbs back then. He had an old Opel Rekord car and I always sat in the back because he drove so wildly back then! I still have a Gibson guitar which he played a bit.

He's been listed in the Guiness Book of World Records for over 25 years at 6'1" and 235 pounds in peak shape, as the world's perfect body.
Answer said on 13/Sep/06
Arnie has said that he was 6'1.5" when he was a bodybuilder. When he became a movie star he rounded it up to 6'2", just to make it easier, and (probably) make it sound much taller. If he has shrunk now, I don't know.
Danimal said on 12/Sep/06
Mike, he's stood barefoot on stage for 15 years against legit 6'0"-6'2" men. What more proof do you need that he was over 6'1".
TheMan said on 12/Sep/06
I think he may of rounded up to 6,2 for sure.
mike said on 12/Sep/06
roger if u really were good friends with arnold, how tall around would u have guessed him to be in ur own opinion???, and guys look at funny arnold clips on you tube where he's talking about "pumping and coming...lol", many of his clips have him exercising barefoot, so manyyyyyyy people have seen him barefoot, and know ballpark what he stands around
Roger Field said on 12/Sep/06
I was a good friend of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Munich in 1968 when he was a bodybuilding trainer at Rolf Putzinger's gym in Munich. I asked Arnold how tall he was and he told me 1m 87cm which is almost 6'2." There are many articles about us on the internet. I haven't shrunk since then and I'm sure that neither did he.
dmeyer said on 11/Sep/06
the man is right like 187 at peak and 184-5 now
Anonymous said on 10/Sep/06
arnie was about 6 fr 1.5 and now 6 0.5
TheMan said on 10/Sep/06
I think arnold thought he was 6,2 and i belive he was near on it like a cm out. Even in commando they say on the radio around 6,2 arnold would of wanted them to say that. Now i think he's probably 185cm 6,1. Shrinkage slightly probably due to the heavy weights and abit of age now. Anyway i still think he's pretty tall.
Danimal said on 10/Sep/06
Arnold is at least 6'1". Here's the proof. This is him talking with Kevin Levrone. World Class Pro bodybuilder who is between 5'9" and 5'10" LEGIT. How many inches do you think Arnie has on him? Fast forward to 3:35

I gotta admit, the guy has had one HELL of a life coming from nothing. Hes pretty blessed.
Zach said on 9/Sep/06
Arnolds not 6'4 Jone, he was dwarfed by a legit 6'4 guy in Commando and also here Click Here

scroll down to third row.

I do reckon he was very close to 6'2 back in the 80's. Even now he never looks anything less than 6ft. I reckon Rob's original estimate of Arnie being 6.05 these days was spot on.
Danimal said on 9/Sep/06
I'm a fan of Arnie. He's super intelligent, fun, witty, ambitious, determined and was one of my biggest inspirations growing up and still is. He proved to everyone that he could overcome ANY obstacle in his way. In fact, it was the obstacles that motivated him to steamroll right over them. He's achieved all of his dreams. Best bodybuilder in the world from 1966-1980 (never placing less than #2). One the top box office movie stars of all time. Governor of California, when he was a damn Austrian by birth. What can't he do and he's not even 60 yet.

www.sabah.com.tr/2003/11/06/d11.html, arnold with bush looks to be on flat ground
mike said on 8/Sep/06
one more thing if arnold is/ was only 5'10 then stallone is barely 5'6 b/c all the pics from the 1980's and so forth have arnold over sly by at least 4 inches
mike said on 8/Sep/06
most people love arnold viper, i remember frank liked him, he was cool with u right glenn??? but theres some people that dont like him, or want to find a flaw b/c he's the biggest action star of or time, some women dont like him, b/c he is/was a womanizer and a few guys don't like him for whatever reason i read an article in one of arnold's "groping" cases where the woman said arnold's this tall man over 6 feet tall, when describing him, but there also was a lady who clamed to have met him and said hes barely 5'8
Viper652 said on 8/Sep/06
How could anyone not like Arnie?
Danimal said on 8/Sep/06
To make him look small than he is, because not everyone likes the man.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
I agree D.but whats to make of the rash of short sightings? some from credible sources,such as industry types?
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
No ankle poppin Viper,but yes,he walks funny.humpty dumpty as someone else said.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
Oh,yeah.he appeared 6-2.
Danimal said on 7/Sep/06
NO Glenn, Arnie was a tall guy. He appeared in TOO MANY international competitions with legit 6'0", 6'1" and 6'2" guys. I believe that he was 6'1.5" in his younger days. Today he is still over 6'0", but by how much, I'm not sure.
Joe said on 7/Sep/06
Glenn, didn't you say he was definitely 6'0+ when you met him?
H said on 7/Sep/06
You do shrink a half inch when you train your knees. The spine is shrinking down, and straighting out again when you sleep. Maybe that's why Arnold was 6'1.5" and not 6'2"? He maybe was measured during the bodybuilding contest just after a knee-workout?
brent said on 7/Sep/06
I have seen Arnold in person numerous times, the first time in the 1980's. I am 5'11" he is no taller than 5'10". Believe it or not. The last time I saw him was on the set of the Batman movie he did, he was wearing platform shoes, part of the Mr. Freeze costume, He was 6'3" in those shoes
mike said on 7/Sep/06
first off jg, arnold is taller then 5'8 or 5'9, glenn is 5'8, arnold's footwear would have to be 6-7 inches bigger then glenn's footwear (even stallone cant pull that off...lol) if he was only 5'8, every arnold and bruce willis pic excpet the digging one where theres a huge angle he always has bruce by 2-3 inches, and glenn says willis is close to 6, sometimes appears over 6, and is listed here 5'11.5 but now rumors are coming out bruce is barely 5'10, anyway arnold was with tony blair recently and their both around the same height, and blair is 6 even or 6'0.5 max, and if arnold was measured lets say at least 6'1 back in 1970, theres no reason to think hes barely 5'10 now of days, and remember even frank2 had arnold well over 6 feet, who has lower estimates then glenn sometimes
Viper652 said on 7/Sep/06
Glenn, didnt you say Arnie walked funny with his ankles popping out of his shoes?
Glenn said on 7/Sep/06
Is it possible arnie shrunk Danimal? or is he another SLY guy? enough short claims to get me suspicious.
Viper652 said on 7/Sep/06
JG, are you absolutely positive?
JG said on 6/Sep/06
I just met Arnold at a recent press conference in CA - and all of us present we struck by how SHORT he is. I am 5'6", and when I shook his hand, he couldn't have been more than 2 or 3 inches taller than me.
Danimal said on 6/Sep/06
For those of you who are interested, go to this link and look what happened to once 5'10"-5'11" Joe Weider. You have to scroll down a bit. It's sad.

Danimal said on 6/Sep/06
What shocked me is how much Joe Weirder has shrunk. At a recent event, Arnold presented Weider with an award and Weider was shorter than 5'4" Franco Columbo. Joe used to be 5'10"-5'11". It's SCARY. He couldn't even hold his own microphone. The man is in his mid 80's today and looks like he could be blown over by the wind.
megatron said on 6/Sep/06
apologies judge misread your comment.. we both agree anyways, peace.
The Judge said on 6/Sep/06
Hi Megatron...I just said that Arnold is probably 6' or 6'0,5" THESE DAYS.
I think he was 6'1" or 6'1.5" in the 80's, during his Mr.Olympia's reign. Excuse me if you did'nt understand. Sayonara...

megatron said on 5/Sep/06
judge, how can mr olympia pics prove arnold is at 6 or 6-05 these days if his last olympia was in early eighties? 6 or 6-05 today maybe, but def around 6-2 during olympia, conan, t2, etc......
Henry said on 5/Sep/06
Believe it or not, but Arnie is MAX 6'2". I believe 6'1,5" as the artice says is right. No matter how tall he is, he doesn't LOOK so tall anymore on some pictures. Don't know why...
The Judge said on 5/Sep/06
Mr.Arnold is at least 6'7"...No, no I tried to make a joke! Actually, I think that many photos proves that our Mr.Olympia is around 6'or 6'0,5" these days. The photo with Bush is not a solid proof cause the president is on the foreground, don't forget this!!
Jone said on 5/Sep/06
You don't have to believe me, but Arnold is no sub-six footer!
Jone said on 4/Sep/06
That's because Stahl is wearing steep platforms, while Arnold is Barefooted.

Glenn said on 3/Sep/06
Yeah Mike and I believe he appeared and was measured at 6-1.5 correct? and looked this near others?
mike said on 3/Sep/06
yeah glenn he has thousands of barefoot pictures out there with people and other bodybuilders, and another thing in pumping iron, arnold taunts lou ferrigno, b/c arnold won all the time,lou was always close but never won, i think if arnold was under 6 feet, ferrigno to get back at arnold would've said something like this after a contest "he may have won, but at least i'm over 6 feet tall"
Glenn said on 3/Sep/06
Henry-anything is possible.even Sly at 5-7 is possible.but highly unlikely.one thing is certain,Colin Farrel isnt 5-8 or 5-9.he is 5-11.this 5-10 Arnie thing is intrigueing.the thing is,Arnie has been barefoot alot early in his career correct?
Viper652 said on 3/Sep/06
Jone has been saying 6-4 the whole time. Hes the ultimate Arnold fanboy.
mike said on 2/Sep/06
glenn i know u saw arnold many times always lookin 6'2 or close to it, u don't buy that 5'10 to 5'11 crap right???? i mean frank also had him 6'1 to 6'2, and he and u have differed on heights with urs being alil higher, his being a lil lower
Glenn said on 2/Sep/06
Jone,you and your Friend are Wrong.in his prime he was 6-2 TOPS.now maybe a hair less.I met him many times in the early 90s.
Jone said on 2/Sep/06
I have some info for you on Arnold that I think you will be interested in. I actually tried to post this last weekd on the page, but it didn't post. I was at my brother's house 2 weekends ago for a birthday party and his good friend (and mine too) of over 20 years came up for it. His friend works at a major US airport (I'll keep that anonymous) and was telling us that he ran into the Arnold about a month or so ago at the airport. He actually walked over and had a 5 minute conversation with him. My brother's friend is exactly 1/8 of an inch less than 6 foot 1. He's also been a fan for 25+ years as well. He's not someone who would even care about overstimating someone's height either. Now, thinking of this board I asked him specifically how tall he looked and if he appeared taller than another of my brother's friends who stands a solid 6 foot 5. His response was that the Arnold was about 6 foot 4 or close to it. When I asked him about the 6 foot 5 guy he said Arnold was not quite as tall as that guy. Then I asked him if perhaps he was 6 foot 2 or so- trying to establish a definite minimum. He said no way was he less than 6 foot 3. He still stood on closer to 6 foot 4. So, that is a recent firsthand close-up encounter that also lasted a fair amount of time. I've always attested Arnold was 6 foot 4 and this backs up my claim. I don't buy anyone who claims he's less than 6 foot 2. I've read some who post as low as 6 foot 0 and that is just an utter joke.

[Editor Rob:

your friend needs to see an optician...urgently, sounds like he's going blind.

mike said on 31/Aug/06
aussie arnold looks shorter then jim but taller then jonathan, and with the vince thing, remember when arnold visited smackdown, back in 1999, he was taller then stone cold steve austin by an inch and was the same or a spec shorter then mcmahon i think, but mcmahon changes his footwear on occasions b/c hes actually taller and more muscular then some of his wrestlers..lol,
Glenn said on 31/Aug/06
Whats interesting is that its not Ebert that says 5-10.at least 2 others have.in the political world and movie industry.he has a Sly myth thing going.I saw 6-2 in the early 90s.
Anonymous said on 31/Aug/06
Some one working on the set of True Lies said Arnold was in the 5'9 to 5'10 range!....some one posted on this site sometime ago!
I think those who see Arnie close up, those that worked with him on film sets have a better idea about his true height!
They have seen him probably barefoot and up close and are in a better position to make a more accurate estimate about his height!
Anonymous said on 31/Aug/06
I've seen some of the pic postings of Arnie and Weigner. You can't say Arnold wears lifts. In the past pics, Arnold is comfortably taller than the guy when Arnie is barefoot and the guy is in chunky shoes. Knock off 2 inches for Weigner and get Arnie standing straight like Weigner, then a 5 inch difference emerges.

This fits in with the recent pics, where if anything Weigner has lost 1 inch height anyway ALONG with Arnie.
Aussie Bloke said on 31/Aug/06
Am I blind, or does Arnold appear marginally taller than Jonathan in that picture. If this is the case, albeit Jonothan is on a slight slant, Arnold must be above 183cm. Also, does Arnold have a small head, or is it just JIM and Jonathon have MASSIVE heads, because in both pictures Arnold's chin is higher up by around an inch, yet he is supposed to be shorter than both of them. CREEPY DUDE, JUST PLAIN SCARY!!!!
Viper652 said on 31/Aug/06
Dkko, it would be cool If you could upload those pics where supposedly Vince towers over Arnold.
Danimal said on 30/Aug/06
Vince is not 6'4". He's at most 6'2". He could have been over that in his younger years however. I agree that Arnold is floating around 6'1" today, or slightly under that.
Ola said on 30/Aug/06
Vince just towers over "Mr Governator" ..really? good luck if there is more than 1 inch between them!

Dkko said on 30/Aug/06
I have some photos of Arnold posing together with Vince McMahon (WWE owner) Vince just towers over "Mr Governator" and since Vince is a good 193cms, Arnold
simply can't be any taller than 180, I give him 178cms if that
The Judge said on 29/Aug/06
Hi!...I think rwfender is right. At 59 years old, Mr.Arnold has shrunk an inch MAX!!! I saw Pumping Iron 2 and he's clearly taller than the others champions. In Guiness book Mr.Arnold was described at 6'1" and 235 lbs.(107 kg). I'm sure of that.
megatron said on 29/Aug/06
roids shrinkage rwfender... hulkster lost like 3inches, lou ferrigno like 2.....
rwfender said on 29/Aug/06
Is it really possible for Arnold to be his age and have shrunk 1.5 inches already?? that seems a little extreme...my grandpa is in his early 70s and he says he has shrunk an inch...how has arnold lost 1.5 inches at his age? maybe he was 184 cm in his prime and lost a 1/2 inch but I cant see more than that??
mike said on 29/Aug/06
i agree with u dmeyer, i don't think he's 6'2 or 6'1 anymore but he's prolly like 6'0.5 my guess, but his spokespeople prolly just round his height down so when government people meet him and he looks 6'0 or over their not disapointed, anonymous3 yeah there are a couple of pics where bush and arnold are around the same height, but...there are some pics where arnold truly is 3 inches taller, u don't see that with bush, time to take a barefoot pic of those 2 together, Viper652 i heard that before too about roger ebert having him under 6, but frank, glenn, jim, jonathan, mike katz and many other people have him def over 6
Viper652 said on 29/Aug/06
Its interesting how Roger Ebert says Arnold is only 5-10-5-11.
Anonymous4 said on 29/Aug/06
Unless you can see their feet, have a full view of where they're standing and know what's in their shoes then nothing is conclusive. Big company CEO's and big world leaders are all renowned for wearing huge heels and lifts. The barefeet Arnold pics are the best reference and they all show Arnie to be at least 6' in his bodybuilding days. End of story.
DMeyer said on 28/Aug/06
i dont get whi you list him only 6 foot
Anonymous3 said on 28/Aug/06
A lot of people on this site have short memories1 where is the picture which headed this site, showing Arnold and President Bush standing next to each other and Arnold was just about the same height as Bush!
Making him 5'11 in shoes! He also looked the same or if not slightly shorter than the 5'11 American chat show host! (whose name i can't remember at this point!)

and i believe u gotxo movies can do special tricks with heights and angles but i've seen the 6th day 5 times starring arnold and he is alil shorter then michael rappaport in all their scenes together (their friends in the movie so it's not like the director had to make arnie look bigger or smaller) i think and he's like 6'2 to 6'3,
mike said on 27/Aug/06
anonymous 5'10 is a little ridicoulous for arnold but one thing i will agree with u on is where u compare his height to weight ratio, one time i asked glenn what he guessed arnold weighed around b/c glenn always saw him as 6'2 or close to it in person and he guessed like 250 or alil higher just because arnold has alot of muscle and of his tall height, and glenn did say hes not that good at guessing weight, but anonymous no one would want to admit there above 240 in weight, whether their 5'10 or 6'2, and come on he towers over glenn in their pic, and is alot thicker
mike said on 27/Aug/06
thank u anonymous2, everyone seems to forget that arnold has thousands of pictures taken barefooted for crying out loud, i'd maybe think arnold could be 5'10 if he never did bodybuilding, and both glenn and frank have arnold over 6 feet, and frank who seems to be accurate or lowers peoples heights by an inch or 2, agrees arnold's over 6
Anonymous2 said on 27/Aug/06

If Arnold is only 5'10 that makes Frank Zane and most other top Olympia competitors like 5'5! NOT!
Gotxo said on 27/Aug/06
I find terrible hard to belive Ahnuld being under 6', it makes a lot hard to appear so tall on screen, no matter wich the reality is.
BTW i don't think is much over that.
ralph said on 27/Aug/06
I dont understand why arnold is listed as a 6 foot. He is clearly taller than 6'1" jonathan, and look at the pic with jim, jim is kind of pushing arnold down (Ian McKellen technique)

I always belived Arnold was around the 5'10 mark! at his peak he was probably 5'10.5! he has never weighted more than 235 - 240lb! but was huge in size! if he was genuinely 6'.1.5 or 6'2 he had to weight around 280 - 300lb to be that big. having a chest of 60 inches at his peak!
he is probably 5'9.5 to 5'10 at the present time!
I have never for one second accepted or beleived he was 6'1 or 6'2
I beleive the Aspen guy of the 5'10 listing!
Anony said on 26/Aug/06
Aspen, as a ski-tech haven't you often encountered people who over/under'ed their heights on paper because they prefer a longer/shorter pair of skis? The important question was, how tall did Arnie LOOK to ya, since you've seen him a couple times?
Aspen 86 ski tech said on 26/Aug/06
I met Arnold in Aspen on many occasions. I was working as a ski tech for two winters. Funny thing was, besides his penchant for good, dirty jokes and cigars, he always listed his height as 5' 10" when filling out the form for his bindings to be set. I personally did the work and he always filled the forms out the same each time. Now the bodyguard man who always went with Arnold was a man over 6'!!. You should check your yardstick...
Ola said on 25/Aug/06
yes mike thats sounds good. lou 6'4 (6'5 prime). Actually i think lou was meassured to 6.5 legid. Arnold 6'1 (6'2 prime)
iam not harsh on arnold ;)
mike said on 24/Aug/06
ola i'd say there is anywhere between 3 to 4 max, prolly 3 or 3.5 inch difference between arnold and lou, ferrigno was built up as 6'5 meaning he was prolly 6'4 in change arnold was built up as 6'2 meaning he was prolly 6'1 in change, but alot of people are harsh on arnold, but he is one of the VERY FEW celebs/famous people to be photographed routinely being BAREFOOT, and come on ferrgino and all those bodybuilders know whether's arnold close to 6'2 or was barely 5'11, it just depends on their own real height, the pics with arnold and reg park.....some arnolds taller some reg's taller, depends on angle and posture, but their both in the same ballpark, while ferrigno COULD be barely 2 inches taller then arnold to 5 inches taller then arnold, prolly 3
Ola said on 24/Aug/06
I have the bodybuilding video with both arnold and lou ferrigno.
i can tell you guys that big lou is atleast 3 inch, maybe 4... taller than arnold
TheMan said on 15/Aug/06
To be fair to Arnold he was atleast 6,1 in he's prime thats for sure IMO.

arnold with (6'0???) dave draper and 6'1 mike katz...www.davedraper.com/photo-archive-2.html 5th pic down on the page, working out/hanging out in id imagine sneakers at the gym
mike said on 13/Aug/06
the thing with arnold is that he IS tough to judge for height, i guess it depends on his posture, i seen the pics of his 55th b-day with jim cameron (I'm guessing he's 6'1 to 6'2 i think...???) and in 1 pic arnold's 2 inches taller in another pic jim's 2 inches taller, but arnold def can't be that short in real life b/c he went almost everywhere barefoot when he was bodybuilding and actually in alot of his NON movie premiere/parties/function events he does wear sneakers out in public, unlike stallone

Viper, Arnold has always been the same height (over 6'1"). It's Sly if anyone who has had his bones lengthened, if that's even possible. Sly isn't only catching up with 6'1" Arnold, but 6'3.5" Hogan as well, which is insane for a man who some claim is 5'7". You all realize that Sly would have to be wearing 7" lifts next to Hogan if he was only 5'7".
Que said on 11/Aug/06
Viper652, for hundreds of years thousands of people believed the earth was flat, but believing it didn't make it so!
mike said on 11/Aug/06
arnold defintely didnt have his bones lengthened, sly's catching up to him for crying out loud,.... he was described as 6'2 in the 1970's so that means he was prolly just 6'1 or 6'1 in change and now i'd say 6 even or 6.05, frank and glenn who have differed on more heights now, both agree he was at least 6'1 minimum, pushing 6'2, arnold is def taller then jay leno esp during 2003 when he was running for governor
Viper652 said on 11/Aug/06
The thing is, there are to many reports of Arnold being 5-10-5-11 to not take some kind of creedence to it. Whether Arnold wears lifts, had his bones lengthened, whatever. It still has me suspicious.
Shib said on 11/Aug/06
I see Arnold and Blair as the same height. Both about six feet even, no more, no less. Even Arnold's press office give his height as six feet. Why would they lie?
Anonymous said on 10/Aug/06
I saw Arnold walking around on the Tonight Show stage with Jay Leno and they appeared to be the same height. IMDB says Jay is 5'10". A friend of mine who is 6'2.5" once sold an SUV to Arnold and said Arnold was a few inches shorter than him.

elio said on 10/Aug/06
I see Arnold at at least an inch taller than 6ft blair in the majority of the pics. With Bruce Willis he looks 2 inches taller.
Gramps said on 10/Aug/06
Mike: yeah, Frank tells us a lot of things.
mike said on 10/Aug/06
gramps any normal pic between arnold and willis is at least 2 if not 3 inch difference favoring arnold, there's like 10-15 planet hollywood pics of them, and frank will tell you arnold was at least 2 inches taller
Gramps said on 10/Aug/06
Let's see now...Willis is 5'11" and he and Arnold look about the same height. So, I guess that makes Arnold 6'2". Wait...someone check my math.
slysystem said on 9/Aug/06
to shib

no, Stallone looks like a "5.9 Sly" to a "6.2 Schwarzenegger"...

do you know what does 5 inch (12.5 cm) of difference represent ?
mike said on 9/Aug/06
stallone is very hard to tell, i will say one thing though frank, sly's legs def dont look that long, regardless of his true height, which everyone debates about i'm just amazed at how in some pics arnold towers over sly and in more recent years/pictures he's barely taller then sly, or the same height, AND to all the people that say arnold wears huge lifts, (frank doesnt think so, he couldve been able to spot them) please explain how sly keeps gaining inches on arnold, if they both have the same huge lifts on, their should be a decent height gap between the 2
Frank2 said on 9/Aug/06
Anyone with eyes can clearly see from that photo that Sly is short. Let's just say for argument sake that Arnold isn't 6'2" as he claims, but is just six feet even. Sly is several inches shorter. What does it take to sink in that Stallone is short?

One more time. Bruce and I are the exact, same height. I'm 5'11". Willis was photographed with President Bush who's 5'11" and they're the same height.
Shib said on 8/Aug/06
Bruce looks almost as tall as Arnold in these pics, though in most others he is shorter. maybe they were both wearing lifts that day? Stallone looks strangely short here too.

Bruce willis claims he's 6 even to 6'1 i think, this site has him 5'11.5, glenn has him at 6 even frank has him 5'11, which makes sense for 5'11.5... please someone find me one picture where bruce is the same height or taller then arnold, that arnold looks 5'10 to 5'11 arnold always has him by at least 2, sometimes 3 inches but bruce doesnt seem to have nice boots like arnold or lifts like stallone, the only person that has Arnold 5'10 to 5'11 that has met him is Roger Ebert, (anyone know his height???) but hey both glenn and frank have met arnold many times and say he's 6'1 to 6'2
omholt35 said on 8/Aug/06
I watch a talk show in the Sacramento area and the one host is 6'1". He claimed when standing next to Arnold he was shorter than Arnold. Granted The Gov. could have been wearing his boots then helped him to the 6'2" range. Theres no doubt hes still around 6' at least maybe more. I have never met him and am taking this guy at his word. Trust me if he was taller then Arnold they would have been all over it.

Gotxo said on 7/Aug/06
Danimal- Blair is not taller than Clinton, but he always take a lot of care to
figure in better position than others at pics.
Que- Blair is a terrible good politician, that is, a profesional liar.
Spain prime minister Rodriguez Zapatero really is 6'0.5",in most pics
Zapatero and Blair share, Blair looks equally taller or even a bit above
But when you finally find full body shots you realize Blair is slightly
shorter, 1,5cm to 1" in fact.
Que said on 7/Aug/06
Blair has said on British TV a few years ago that he's just a touch over 6', were talking say half an inch so hes about 6'0.5. Most people on here say Arnolds between 6' and 6'2. Seeing as hes pretty much always claimed to be 6'2 lets just take the average of 6'-6'2 because we will never really know for certain anyway, so lets call him 6'1, thats pretty fair, which isn't a giant in height but is still much taller than the average height in the usa/uk at 5'9/10.

PS I'm only 5'9 so to me he is a giant!

Anonymous said on 7/Aug/06
Where is that picture with Arnie standing next to the 5'11 Bush and being the exact height!..both probably wearing lifts! To me Bush does look to be of average height! I think he is 5'9 barefoot and wears cowboy boots to appear taller!
Danimal said on 7/Aug/06
Shib, Blair if anything looks taller than Tubby (Bill Clinton) and Clinton is 6'2", which would make sense for Arnold to look shorter than a 6'2" man today. I think he's struggling with 6'1" today.
Gramps said on 7/Aug/06
Great pic, Shib. I'd say Blair is 6'0.5" and Arnold 5'11.75".

Hmm. In the second one, Arnold is closer to the camera, so on balance I'd say they are the same height.

shib arnolds def shorter in your pic but blairs standing upright while arnolds walking in midstride with his knee bending and only one foot on the ground, when arnold stands upright/staright like in tenaciousC pic's or even the otrher arnold/blair pic u posted hes tall, even the pics from stallone's b-day, you gotta look at how arnold stands... the first one pic where arnolds slouching, he actually is shorter then stallone no joke, but in the second pic where arnolds got a goofy face and his hands in the air, hes standing upright and has willis and sly by 3 inches, i'd say the best blair/arnold pic is tenaciousC 2nd one, where arnolds 2 inches taller, b/c it looks like their on level ground but id say these 2 gentlemen are close in height, arnolds prolly a half inch taller, just a guess
Shib said on 6/Aug/06

Arnold IS to the nearest inch 6'2 even today, if you look at the pics on yahoo images you can see hes got Blair by nearly 2 inches. The 6 feet listing is too short for him.

hey everyon/anyone curious to see the arnold/tony blair pics go to yahoo the images section and just type "arnold schwarzenegger tony blair" it has several view pic shots and guess what...there the same height or arnold is taller by alittle bit in every one
UK Terminator fan said on 3/Aug/06
Unless some1 who is a def 6ft 1 stands next to the man himself, barefoot - then I suppose we can only estimate. 2 me Arnold is a big man, realitively tall and a shade under 6ft to the average man is still relatively tall.
mike said on 2/Aug/06
In that Arnie/blair pic shib posted up they look equal or arnold by alittle bit....arnold's shoulders are higher then blairs even with the leaning down, and arnold's shoulders naturally slope down..again if somehow arnold is only 5'10 to 5'11 then sly stallone is 5'7, bruce willis is 5'8 george clooney is 5'8, john travolta is under 6 ...all these statements are ridicolous, i cant back that up b/c i havent met most of them like glenn, but he'll tell u these stars are close to their claiming heights, not exactly but nothing ridicolously off and Anonymous i agree exactly with what u said your last sentence if theres some pics with arnold currently looking 6'1 to 6'2 while theres others 5'11 to 6'0, he's prolly inbetween, def at least 6'1 when he was younger, Exp if someone can look 5'11 to 6'1 in photos with knowledge and comparision of other people's heights that person is prolly 6 even
Anonymous said on 2/Aug/06
I saw Blair and Arnie on TV and to my eyes Arnie looked taller by an inch or two. However it perhaps wasn't a great angle to compare them from. UK term fan below says the opposite so maybe I've got it wrong. I think Arnie is one of the most difficult celeb heights to guess. There's convincing evidence that he's about 6'2'' but there seems to be equally convincing evidence he's under 6 ft.
TheMan said on 2/Aug/06
I think Arnies larger and life charecter would make you belvie he's a giant he is but not in height. But i think there was alot of lies about he's height. He had to be atleast 185cm 6,1 in he's prime though.
tenaciousC said on 2/Aug/06
for cryin out loud CEOs+presidents in companies all wear lifts (read 'general height' or 'elevator shoes' articles)!!so presidents or PMs more than likely do...
tenaciousC said on 2/Aug/06
does blair wear lifts? most politicians do specially presidents/primeministers to appeaar taller than da common people...
UK Terminator fan said on 2/Aug/06
I am 6ft 1inches tall and have had the pleasure (English pleasentry - not really pleasureble) of shaking our PM's hand a coup0le of times. The first was when I was at High School in 2002 and was 180cm tall. Mr Blair was bang on the same height. When I last seem him up close, it was last year in Middlesbrough town centre, England, and my 6ft 1 had at least an inch or 2 on him (a forehead taller).

I watched the news 2 and to me when both Blair and Arnold were standing up str8, head raised , Blair was marginally taller.

To conclude a 6ft even Tony Blair = a 5ft 11 possibly 5ft 11.5 inch Arnold.

I believe that Arnold was and always has been no taller than 5ft 11.5 and 6ft prime and prsent.

He still Big Arnie 2 me tho!!!

shib was that pic from this week or a few years ago...anyways i know this pic was posted a long time ago but look at it there's no way arnold is 5'10 unless bruce willis is like 5'6 or 5'8, I'm not using/comparing stallone, because he's not a good exp for obv reasons, arnold easily has bruce by a solid 3 inches, even if bruce was/is only 5'10 that still puts arnold over 6, damn bruce was heavier back in the day and stallone actually looks thicker then arnold, i'm guessing this pic was from late 80's early 90's????......www.sylvesterstallone.com/.../

TheMan said on 1/Aug/06
I never actually belived he was ever below 185cm 6,1 but it's possible he is 183cm 6 foot. He just doesnt tower over these guys like he should do unless Blairs taller than what their saying. But to be fair the ground could be diffrent as the pic i saw was outside and i couldent see the ground. One things for sure he's not 6,2 thats deffinate i don't think he ever was. I know a 6,2.5 friend and he looks really tall agaisnt even a 6foot even person. If bush is 5,11 then maybe he's nearly 6 foot as he didnt seem to much shorter than blair maybe a few cm like 2. So the reading 183cm here might be nearer to the truth than i thought.
mike said on 1/Aug/06
i havent seen the arnold/blair pic but i want to bring up an interesting point, some people match up better with others, let's say blair is an inch or 2 taller, but for Exp As recently as the past month or 2, Arnold looks 3 inches taller then 5'10.5 orlando bloom, for which it was Bloom's movie premiere so he better/is going to be looking his best, arnold still has bruce willis by a a couple of inches whose listed at 5'11.5, arnold can be negative 1 to positive 3 with our president bush whose 5'11 even, arnold can be negative 1 to positive 8 with 5'6 to 6'4 sylvester stallone....my point is some people look better next to others with similiar height, Arnold also had john travolta by a solid inch at stallone's b-day part whose at least 6 even or closer to 6'1 and arnold def didnt have lifts on for sly's party b/c that was the first time ever in sly was even with arnold in the first pic but in the second pic with arnold inbetween willis and sly he had both by a few, like i said some people match up better with others, if u go by willis/bloom pics with arnold he's easily 6'1 at least if u go by this blair pic he's 5'11, do the math he's 6 even

Happy birthday to our Mr.Olympia ! He's 59 years old today !
I agree with this 6'1.5" when he was younger, or maybe 6'1"..Certainly he loses 2 or 3 cm since the 80's, ok...
Personally, Mr.Arnold is one of my favorite actors. I'm 5'10.5" and I can't believe he's my height, even 5'11". He's a good 6' I think...
Zach said on 30/Jul/06
Yep, thats an awesome pic danimal, getting a pic from shin level proves everything. Watch this clip (minutes 4-5) where Arnold and Lou stand next to one another barefooted. Theres no way Lou is 6'4 and Arnold 5'10. Click Here
Bleemo said on 29/Jul/06
I love the way people use other actor's heights as a means to prove someone's heights. I've no doubt Orlando Bloom is 5'10 max based on a number of pics where he looks short and some dody footwear. Even if he was 5'10, it would only take a 6' Arnie in relatively small lifts too look say 3-4 inches taller in those pics.
Danimal said on 29/Jul/06

Danimal said on 28/Jul/06
Zach, for someone who's been into bodybuilding for years, your estimate of Andre and Lou sucks! There was WELL MORE than 2" difference between them in 1974-1975 when on stage.
Zach said on 28/Jul/06
I wouldnt believe any of that Joe. I've been into bodybuilding for years and have seen countless instances of Lou and Arnold next to each other barefooted - theres NO WAY that theres 6 inches between them, infact I wouldnt say theres more than 2 inches between them. The director probably just didnt like Arnie and took a cheap shot at him.
Danimal said on 27/Jul/06
The man was the same height as 6'1" Reg Park. Arnold was measured at 6'1.5". We all know this. This measurement was taken late in the day. We also know that we all lose height throughout the day (some more than others). We also know that Arnold has always claimed he was 6'2". Looking at all the above pics, the man does appear over 6'1". I do think he is perhaps at SHORTEST just over 6'0" today, but no less than that. He has stood next to too many very important people in his life and has always maintained a 6'1" to 6'2" stature, which I believe he is. We've all provided the evidence to back that up. The guys who claim 5'10" (especially in the political arena), are clearly not Arnold advocates.
Glenn said on 27/Jul/06
Alot of 5-10 claims for this guy.in the early 90s he always appeared 6-2 to me.
Anony said on 27/Jul/06
I'll only agree with Gramps if he meant Arnold was 6'0.5 barefeet using 1" lifts to match Dave.
Joe said on 26/Jul/06
I know this is sure to cause some controversy but I was watching the Incredible Hulk season 1 commentary with the director and he talks about how Lou is 6'4 and then goes on to mention that originally they had talked to Schwarzenegger but he didn't work because number one: he was working on Conan and two: "he was much shorter than Lou, only about 5'10." - I had started to believe he really is 6'1 but I don't know anymore. I think he's invested in some good lifts.
Danimal said on 26/Jul/06
Gramps, you're saying that Arnold is 6'0.5" WITH LIFTS??? So, you believe the man IS 5'10". He's not.
dmeyer said on 24/Jul/06
i have never seen arnie apear as short as 6 feet aleast 6 1 to 6 2
Gramps said on 24/Jul/06
Yes, maybe 6'0.5" with lifts! Arnold knew he would be seen by millions of people alongside a guy widely thought to be 6'2" tall. If he was ever going to play the "lift card," this would be it!
Stevie G said on 24/Jul/06
Letterman looks to be about 1 inch taller than Arnold. About 6 ft seems to be correct
Zach said on 23/Jul/06
Well Gramps you always see Arnold as a few inches shorter than everyone else does.

Even if he is an inch shorter than 6'1.5, that puts him at 6'0.5

bush jr. could wear lifts to, so could bloom
mike said on 19/Jul/06
i do not who MAX is, but he may have just summed up a complicating guessing/knowing of arnold's height, as i've stated earlier i dont think arnold wears lifts, but boots with a "nice sole", when he was a solid 6'1 with "nice boots" he looks 6'2, 5'10 is still ridiculous in my opinion. Thats why with pics with Bush Jr.(5'11) arnold can look up to 3 inches taller, and in some pics basically the same height as bush, bush only once looked taller then arnold
once

Okay, here's the deal. Arnold was never 6'2", His peak height was 6'1" and now due to too many heavy squats and aging he's 6 feet even.

Bloom did look considerably shorter next to 6'2.5 Eric Bana than he does next to Arnie. But like others pointed out maybe he's wearing funny footwear.
TheMan said on 18/Jul/06
I still belive arnie is atleast 185cm though even now. He just always looked like a tall guy to me and in most pictures it's proved. He's more than 183cm thats for sure. I know some celibrites have lied about their height like stallone but arnold is a big guy IMO in height as well.

Your forgetting Bloom can look 5-11.
mike said on 17/Jul/06
hey guys we could do a "Arnie Meter" on this page next to all of his pictures, it would/could go like this "People that have met Arnold, estimated heights"..... Glenn 6'2, Frank2 6'2, Jonathan 6'1, Jim close to 6'1, Shaquille O'neal 6'0 (that one might be a joke) Roger Ebert 5'10 to 5'11, Some Random Democratic Strategist dude, 5'10. Rob I don't know if you have met him, but if u have put your estimate in there, I'm sure Sly and Bruce will have Arnold at atleast 6'1, if not 6'2 also, then when we get people that for a fact have met arnold we can add their names and estimates up there
mike said on 17/Jul/06
hahahaha good call on that elio with arnold's proportionately long legs regardless of his height (5'10 to 6'2), and the stallone's rentals, im shocked stallone hasnt recieved alot of phone calls, asking wear he gets his boots/shoewear, showing he can come real close to arnold, bruce and travolta in height, when in fact if they all went barefoot, stallones defintely the shortest
elio said on 17/Jul/06
Interesting that Orlando seems to have a very short looking upper-body and arms in those pics, and where his legs meet his groin seems higher up than on Schwarzenegger. Given that Arnold has proportionally long legs (no matter what his height) then Orlando must have either incredibly long legs or some impressive footwear on. Is Stallone renting out his footwear these days?
Zach said on 17/Jul/06
Think you're right funkmonk, Rob seems to have gotten Arnie spot on, 6foot no less these days but 6'1-2 back in his heyday
funkmonk said on 17/Jul/06
Woah! Wait an minute. Arnold is looking only 2 inches taller than Bloom who is, what 5'9" 5'10"? I say Arnold 6 foot now, 6'1" in prime.
mike said on 16/Jul/06
if arnold is not 6 feet then every actor/actress reported heights are a few inches shorter then they are, i guess bruce willis is 5'8 to 5'9, travolta's 5'10 to 5'11, george clooney is 5'8, tom arnold is 5'11, orlando bloom 5'6 this is a little silly, arnold is the same height or in more cases taller then everyone i just listed above

Here's another picture or Bush and Arnold together. Excatly the same height. Aslo: I'm a little over 5' 11", and I've stood next to many pro bodybuilders: Jay Cutler, Ronnie Coleman, Dexter Jsckson, Gunter Schliercamp etc. I was easily taller than all of them except for Schliercamp, who looked about 6' 1". It's very easy for arnold to tower over most bodybuilders these days because they're not that tall, especially on stage in their bare feet. Arnold is definitely not over six feet.
Mike said on 9/Jul/06
Actually i think schwarzenegger under estimates his height here he is with 6'4 jesse ventura arnie looks 6'8...www.canoe.ca/.../
venturap20.html,......lol that pic was a joke but seriously how could someone who competed in his sport barefooted, and met millions of people, exagerated his height by more then an inch or 2 and gotten away with it, that's like saying john travolta, (pretend he was a bodybuilder back in the day) whose a good 6 fet even, now and when he was younger (maybe 6.05) which pretty much every agrees with, claiming he's 6'4, no way could he have gotten away with it
Mike said on 9/Jul/06
Whether or not arnold wears lifts, or whatever else people may say (pics with him towering over stallone, or looking almost the same height as sly, or arnold being as much as 3 inches taller then george bush to looking 1 inch smaller then him), the only consistent person he always matches up to is bruce willis, whose a legit 5'11,.... in every pic they have together, whether it's 1980's to 2006, whether they wear sneakers, loafers, or boots, there's always 2-3 inches in arnold's favor,in every pic. my opinion arnold was at least a solid 6'1 in is prime, maybe a spec more, but could look 6'2, now of days 6 even or 6.05, 5 years from now when arnold's approaching 65 years old ... he probably will be under 6 by then ...lol/maybe just a guess, i still dont why him and stallone get scrutined harshly for their height's
megatron said on 9/Jul/06
arnold is a 6 footer wannabe 6-4 jus like stallone a 5-9 wannabe 6 footer

Arnold does wear "special shoes" half the time.

Interesting comments from a Democratic strategist: Bob Mulholland, senior advisor to Democratic nominee Phil Angelides, aims for controversy this morning, saying: "With North Korea leader Kim Jong-Il back in the news, it reminds me that he and Schwarzenegger have something in common. Both have their shoes specifically made to add a couple inches of lift. What we don

Some say Bloom might only be 5-9.

He's certainly a good 3 inches taller than the 5'10" ish Bloom.

Arnold towers over (close to 5'11???) orlando bloom in their new pics at the pirates of the carribean movie premiere pics are on the arnoldfans.com

There's no way a 5'10" guy could have stood up to a 6'3"+ guy in a movie, the way Arnold looked next to Bill Duke. Not even with lifts. The guy was over the 6 foot mark and still is.
Larry said on 1/Jul/06
Viper652 - Thanks, that's him! Bill Duke! :-) I saw the new X-Men , movie & (come to think of it) he WAS in it. OK: Bill Duke was 6'4" when I saw him.
Viper652 said on 30/Jun/06
His name is Bill Duke Larry. He was recently in the new X-men movie, hes a cool guy.
Larry said on 30/Jun/06
Well, it takes more WHATEVER to wear Speedos than "I" EVER had! :-) I assume most bodybuilders must shave their bodies too? Stands to reason. I wasn't making fun of Arnold, I was really more terrified of the thought of anyone seeing my Sasquatch ass in a bathing suit that revealing! Hey: maybe Sasquatches are really OTHER big, hairy Highlanders running around nude?!
Larry said on 30/Jun/06
Well, I've NEVER seen Arnold, but I have seen Bush Sr. & he WAS a solid 6'2" (and quite slender) in 1988. Bill Clinton aso looked 6'2" to me in 1992 & 1996. I'm trying to remember the other black dude in PREDATOR (NOT Weathers). Bill Something? Anyhow, we saw him in a play in Austin in 1998 called BLOODKNOT (good play). I didn't meet him, but he looked about 6'4". Don't know WHY I can't remember his name? Senility? Meds? :-)
Mike said on 30/Jun/06
Don't go frank!!!!!!!!! i like ur input seriously i want u to stay,,,, but if u have to go, say ur most coolest individual experieriences with these celebrities, on arnold's forum, especially his, because i'm sure u got many for him, then take off my buddy if u have too, but please stay!!!! i agree with 95% of ur ratings same as glenn
Frank2. said on 29/Jun/06
I saw Bush Sr. standing next to Arnold and they were almost the exact, same height.

Look, Arnold is 5'4", Sly is 6', Elvis was 6'4" and Marilyn Monroe was 5'10".

This forum is now far too silly for me to continue wasting my time with.

Have fun!
Tom said on 29/Jun/06
I remember seeing Arnie on a podium with George Bush senior at a political event some years ago, and noticing that he was at least a couple of inches shorter, maybe three inches. It was a view of the entire podium, so you could see that they were on the same level. Bush senior was reckoned to be about 6'2".

RE: Maria comment: Prince Charles is 5'9", but you can't come to any conclusions from pictures that don't show if people are standing on level ground or if they are wearing stacked shoes. Also, most photographers, doing close up work, use wide-angle lenses which distort the image, making things that are closer look huge. This is why people shot at head height often look like they've got huge heads (skinny and short legs), and people at the very edges of pictures tend to look taller. This is evident in a huge number of band photos. See the multiple bond pics on this site for an example of this, where the bonds at the extreme edge of the frame are also closer to the camera rendering the image pretty unreliable on two accounts (plus you can't see their feet!).

The Arnie and Bush pic mentioned above was shot from a reasonable distance, and included a lot of the surroundings, so the comparison was reasonably reliable. Arnie is 6' maximum, possibly a little less.
elio said on 28/Jun/06
Frank2 ... the photo is not a complete fake... but taken from a set of photographs of Arnold within a year after his heart surgery. It is the most unflattering photo of the set, where for a split second they caught him in the worst pose ever after having a major heart operation. I believe that the photo has been altered somewhat ... in particular Arnold still had an even tan at that time of those photos, but this version has been altered to make him look washed out and sickly.

There exists another set of photos taken about a year or so ago where Arnold was carrying quite a bit of excess flab, but still looked pretty big. Again, I've seen press versions of these which appear to have been doctored to make him look washed out. Having a tan gives the appearance of being leaner and show muscle better( which is why all bodybuilders get extreme tans - usually fake ). Looking very pale can cause all muscle definition to be washed out and make the body look flabbier.
Glenn said on 28/Jun/06
Orlando appeared to be 5-11 to me.
D. Ray Morton said on 28/Jun/06
Frank2 - yeah. It was just a joke. Real or fake, the side-by-side comparison is kinda...surreal.

I'm not out to denigrate Arnold (though I'm not sure I'd qualify as a member of the "Arnia," either). Fer chrissakes, I've been one of the few defending the legitimacy of his advertised height!
Mike said on 28/Jun/06
yeah i was just wondering about Maria, in some pics she does look tall, others short. hey anyone know how tall orlando bloom is??? Arnold towers over him on the pics in his website thearnoldfans.com, also ive noticed with arnold forget about shoewear when his posture is good he looks tall, when his posture is sh*tty,or slouches he looks of average height. I didnt believe that pic of him was real, although arnie has put on a couple of pounds but still looks in good shape

JT said on 28/Jun/06
D. Ray Morton, Arnold doesn't look too bad for a 60 year old but I could have done without that picture. Plus, I think Arnold has a bit more on his plate right now than he did a few years ago. If Arnold looked like he did 30 years ago, us California taxpayers would start questioning how much time he's devoting to the governorship vs. the gym.
Frank2 said on 28/Jun/06
The photo's an obvious fake. It ran in the tabloids until they were forced to pull it and apologize. Someone did it using Photoshop. Arnold's still in great shape. And Maria is on the tall side.
Larry said on 28/Jun/06
Another height chamelian? :-) I've looked and looked at these photos & I'll be darned if I can tell how tall Arnold is??? But I DO now know why their should be an age limit on wearing Speedos in public! I'm a big, HAIRY Scotsman, so bathing trunks ALWAYS seemed the right choice for me. :-)
Glenn said on 27/Jun/06
Sounds too tall.dont I tower her?
Mike said on 27/Jun/06
Thanx Glenn just wondering about maria b/c her height varies almost as much as arnie's, guys the "slysystem" put up a nice picture of the predator crew on the stallone page eveyrone should check it out especially those who think arnold's 5'10

Maria Shriver's height is given as 5'7" in the 'Fantastic' biography of Schwarzenegger. I dunno if this is accurate or not.

Good question.dont remember.certainly not tall.not too short.5-5?
Mike said on 26/Jun/06
hey frank and/or glenn do u guys know how tall maria shriver, arnold's wife is around??(Ballpark figure) it's funny because in some pictures he towers over her ( the glenn pic) and in others he's not that much taller then her just curious, because Arnold is a tough one to figure out
Mike said on 26/Jun/06
Frank will like this picture, it isn't the greatest picture but look at arnold and 5'4 to 6'4 sylvester stallone, it's a recent picture this shows their true height gap news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=78745

Comparing that image of Arnie/Bush and Hedman(6'0")/Bush, it shows that Arnold isn't the full 6'0" anymore.
My2Cents said on 25/Jun/06
If Joe Weider is 5'10", then there's no doubt in my mind that Arnold was 6' minimum and probably 6'1" or so in his prime. Arnold barefeet looks to have had 2" or so over Joe with shoes. All deductive logic and reasoning would at least suggest that a 5'10" Arnold is ridiculous ...

6'2" Bush and Arnold look to be the same height while Willis is obviously shorter.

In this rare photo you can see the true height difference.

Remember people that when official photos are taken of Stallone, they are carefully screened so as not to ever show him looking short. This was common practice at Fox where I knew publicity people who's job it was to go through tons of photos in order to remove anything that could be damaging to a celeb's image. All photos not used were shredded and the negatives destroyed.

[Editor Rob: one thing I'd say about Bush senior is that in his elder years I'm not that sure he's still 6ft 2 these days

with 186cm Federer and and 185cm Hedman

MHouillon said on 25/Jun/06
Nice quote, Frank2 ! They are not awfully, but awfully expensive. But I don't think, they have a 5cm (!) heel, the standart Cowboy boot heel is 3,5cm - 4cm. (1.5 inch max.).

I can not imagine, why people want to have him smaller than he really is. Does anybody know, from where this allegedly "Governer measuring" with the ridiculous 5'10 claiming comes ?
Gramps said on 24/Jun/06

Jamesy said on 24/Jun/06
Frank, you have forgot to mention the extra padding in the soles to go with it.
Frank2 said on 24/Jun/06
Where did that come from? I haven't mentioned politics regarding a celeb in quite some time, especially Arnold. I think I did say something weeks ago about how conservative celebs are attacked more often which is true. I should know since I worked in the biz for forty years and saw first-hand how anyone who doesn't tow the liberal line is treated.

If you must know, I'm an indedendent who supports traditional values and despise far left loonies like Cindy Sheehan. I also cannot stand the far right crazies either, especially those who use religion as a ploy to gain power. I'm sure God has a special place for such folks after they depart this existence. I'd advize them to pack nothing warm.
Julie said on 24/Jun/06
I fail to see why this would be a big deal whether someone was a conservative or not... in fact, I fail to understand why it matters at all. If he were 4'5" he's still accomplished alot and if he were 6'11", again..

I agree Frank... it's ironic that after commenting and arguing about this to the tune of 20 or so posts you recognize that people need to get a life. I have to also add that if it were some liberal plot to get everyone distracted about some unimportant detail about Schwarzenegger rather than focusing on what he's doing for or not for CA then they would have certainly succeeded with conservatives (like you, I guess we'd have to say since your slamming of liberals makes me guess you must not be one). Why would it be such an issue and distraction? Who cares if he wears lifts or has had plastic surgery or took steroids? It's his life regardless of his politics, celebrity, family or any other factors.

Oh, this is the opinion of a liberal. I can honestly say that I can't think of a single liberal who would expect any political advantage over lying about Arnie's height so I think you might want to lose that conspiracy theory! LOL
Frank2 said on 24/Jun/06
Jamesy, Those are cowboy boots with the usual two inch heel. And I supsect they're awfully expensive too.
MHouillon said on 24/Jun/06
But that f***ing heels doesn't make a 5'10 man look 6'+ ! With these on, he looks easily a 186cm, because without them Arnie is a straight 6 footer, da**it !
