@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.

I can't but any mark above 6'0 5/8 or 6'1 maybe earlier measurement for a peak Arnold. With Eddie Murphy:

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

Editor Rob
He looks at least 6ft 1 there.
Dalty said on 20/Feb/19
I think somewhere between 6'0 6' 3/4 is arguable. Out of these not. Nowdays somewhere 5'10.25 5'10.5

@Mileno 6'5.5" peak height Ralf Moeller and Lou Ferrigno (1997)... Click Here


Here's Lou (closer to camera) w/ around 6'3.5" DeMarcus Ware (2017)... Click Here

Lou was never more than 6'3" IMHO (he still claims to be 6'4" on Twitter, LOL), and he's currently 6'1.75", tops.
Mileno5'9" said on 17/Feb/19
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

@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.

Barry Fl said on 15/Feb/19
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!
rawdshaq said on 14/Feb/19
Scratch the 6'2" peak, I think he has always been around 6 feet - 5'11" range.

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

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.

JakeD said on 9/Feb/19
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.
Joeyb33 said on 8/Feb/19
On NFL player Antonio Brown’s Instagram he has a photo yesterday with Arnold and appears slightly taller. Antonio was measured 5 10 at the draft combine.

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! :)

Al Whitaker said on 5/Feb/19
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.

This is Arnold with 6ft2 (listed here) Ronny Cox in total recall. Arnold should have been at the peak or closer. I can see about an inch between the two. I always though that Arnold was a strong 6ft1. I'm curious to know Rob's opinion, if he has time...

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

Funny thing . You posted pics of Arnie with 6'3.5 guys , saying that he was never 6'1.5
To be fair he looked pretty much 2'' smaller in both pics , so looked near 6'1.5
We can't say anything 100% . He may have been , or not , there were occasion that he looked that tall , others not .

@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"
Areyoureallytellingmwthisishaplening said on 16/Jan/19
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?

ManKo weeks later said probably he has more shoe advantage because ManKo said he just has 0.5 inch casual sneaker. Arnold had shoes

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.

Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Jan/19
Brigitte is quite clearly taller than Loken in that pic and I would never trust a movie height chart since some are real, but many are just props so it's a guess. Loken looks a bit below the 6' mark in shoes there and there's a very good chance Brigitte has lost height since 1985. She was a legit 6' back then. 182 cm at the absolute worst case. Remember, solid 5'9" Eddie Murphy inflated her to 6'2" to back up his 5'10" claim.

Arnold 183 today? lol! He is 179 max today. I know legit 5'11" guys who met him and told me they were taller and he must be 5'10.5 tops! Looks he was a 183-184 guy in his younger days no more

Reagan is widely thought to have been more like 6'0" then or maybe just under and Arnold is obviously taller supporting the 6'1"+ Arnold. Bush looked 6'2" well beyond 1984 so there's little evidence to suggest he shrunk by then. That Reagan/Reeve photo favors Reeve a lot. If Reagan was only 5'11" in the mid 80's then how tall was Michael Jackson? Click Here 5'7"? 5'8" max?

@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.

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

@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. I think Carl himself said they were the same height so that also points to Arnold not being shorter in the 80's.
Solmaker said on 15/Dec/18
Mr. R said on 30/Mar/05: I was in Berkeley when Arnold and Danny DeVito came to shoot Twins. For some odd
reason, I never went to watch the filming. But my friend went along with her strapping 6'2" 18 year old son.
From her eyewitness accounts, her son towered over Arnold. My guess is that Arnold is between 5'11' and 6'.

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

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

Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Dec/18
@Pierre: Yes, cowboy boots are a possibility, but there's no way Holyfield is taller at the 11 second mark. He actually does have to look up to Arnold. He's way too close to the camera at 34 seconds to compare them, but Holyfield has never "towered" Arnold. Neither man has ever towered the other. Towered means at least 4-5 inches. 26 seconds is the best comparison as they're face to face and Arnold is clearly taller. You can't tell if Arnold is looking up in that still you keep posting. Actually, it just looks like he's looking straight, but if he was then it'd be due to Holyfield craning his neck to talk to Dolph. But you can't tell anything from that still. That's why I posted the video.

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

Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Dec/18
@Pierre: The only thing you can tell is Evander has to look up to talk to Dolph. You can't tell if Arnold is shorter there. IF Arnold is looking up -- and I see no indication he is -- it might be because Holyfield is craning his neck. Here's the actual video even though it's been posted: Click Here Look at 11 seconds. Arnold doesn't have to look up any more than Holyfield does. Look at 26 seconds. If anything, Arnold looks a bit taller in that video.

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

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

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

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

I’m 182.5 cm measured in the evening. I met Arnold and he was taller than me. I don’t know what he was wearing but looked regular shoes. This was in 2015 Arnold classic Europe (Madrid) and I was surprised after reading he was around 5ft10-5ft11 when he stood taller than myself.
Are you sure he was taller than you ? And how much was the difference between you two
Barry Fl said on 16/Nov/18
@Hijoputamos

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

@Canson: That was in 1996 and yeah, I remember that Holyfield scene. I think all 3 were in the same range.

@Pierre: That's why I didn't post scenes in the Jungle. I agree you can't tell on that sort of ground. I posted the famous early scene in doors.

@hulver: I'd have to search for the link, but I could swear Carl once claimed Arnold was his height. Nowadays, Arnold has to look up to Carl!

@Canson= Click Here I think the quality of this video is better(no 16/9 effect),and we can see Evander has a long forehead,and finally is about the same height as Will,if same shoes.(I personnally guess Evander around 6"0.75')

Rob what's your lowest and highest guess for Arnie? Your honest opinion.
Mi low is 6'0.25 and highest 6'1 (on a really good peak day and maybe earlier measurement)
Editor Rob
Lowest peak I'd argue is about 6ft 1, highest 1.5.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Nov/18
@hulver: We can agree to disagree on Carl's height today since it's not particularly relevant to Arnold's peak height since all that matters is we agree on Carl being legit 6'1" peak. I tend to think Arnold was taller because he looked it during their scene in Predator, but I'll concede that it's not impossible Carl was as tall or taller because those who argue Arnold was shorter peak will likely believe he could have had a decent footwear advantage and I think everyone can agree the difference between Arnold and Carl would have been pretty small either way.
hulver said on 8/Nov/18
Rob please tell us If you know about Carl words on Arnold's height If he ever told you or said. Does he commented how tall he was next to Arnold?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure what he'd say about Arnold.
hulver said on 7/Nov/18
@Rising - 174 cm
Yes Carl Weathers was probably a legit 6'1 guy and nowdays 6'0.5 but sure not over this mark. I say 6'0.5 max.
I see Arnold a small fraction shorter than Carl in the 80's. or exactly same height at best
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Nov/18
@Pierre: Sometimes, yes, though maybe not with a suit and tie and if Arnold was wearing cowboy boots, that would account for why he looks at least 6'2" with Moore, which would still make him over 6'1" if Moore was in normal 1" shoes. Speaking of 6'1" range guys, here's a good comparison of Arnold and 6'1.5" David Letterman back in 1991: Click Here and I can't say for sure, but at 5:15, it doesn't look like Arnold has cowboy boots. And probably an even better comparison in 1994: Click Here It doesn't look like Arnold has cowboy boots either.

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

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

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

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

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

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

@hulver: Not true in this case since Carl Weathers was definitely an honest 6'1" back in the 80's and Arnold looked taller in Predator: Click Here We know Carl's height because Rob met him in 2010, 2012 and 2015 and said he still looked around 185 cm. Carl is still at worst a strong 184 himself at 70 so giving him 185.5 peak is pretty conservative. Arnold also looked a bit taller than 6'1" Tom Arnold in True Lies: Click Here and even considering his camera advantage, he's clearly taller than Roger Moore in 1988: Click Here Maybe Roger shrunk from 186 cm range peak down to 184-184.5, but look how well Roger still measured up to Pierce Brosnan even 7 years later: Click Here Click Here and remember Arnold on Smackdown in late 1999. Taller than 186 cm listed Stone Cold Steve Austin: Click Here Maybe Austin is more like 184, but Arnold was also about the same height as roughly 6'1" Vince McMahon: Click Here Click Here Also note in that last video Arnold looks at least 6'1" with a peak Rock.
hulver said on 5/Nov/18
@ Rsing - 174 cm
I guarantee honest and legit 6'1 guys were slightly taller than he was. Arnold maybe was a strong 184 in his best day (6'0.5). But I agree in a lot pics looks about 6'1 with other actors or guys. He always holds a good posture in photos with a good posture. Evan was maybe 186 cm and Arnie 184 cm.
In photos sometimes you look shorter and sometimes taller. I'm 5'10 and in some photos I look like other 5'11 even 6'0. friends.
Pierre said on 5/Nov/18
@Rising= Click Here =here we can see the shoes,Evander without hairs and clearly more distant to the camera looks taller than Arnold...
Pierre said on 5/Nov/18
@Hulver= I think too he's more around 6"0' peak than 6"2' or even 6"1.5'.
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Nov/18
@Pierre: Yes, Arnold looks slightly shorter in that pic, but I don't think that trumps video, much less negates video. Ideally, you look at series of pics and you can see variation, especially when the difference is so small, but you can at least see the variation on video so it's not just one second.

@hulver: The reason 6'2" guys edge him is because Arnold was not a full 6'2". Why did Arnold edge 6'1" guys? I think he's shrunk more than 4 cm, but I'll agree 5 cm is close and I'll also grant you Dolph looked a good 3"-4" taller in the video for whatever reason, but no way Holyfield was an inch taller. It's obvious the men were very close in height back in the 90's. Barely anything separating them one way or the other.
hulver said on 4/Nov/18
To Pierre:
Yes but in my opinion guesses over 6'1 for Arnold are out of reality. If he would had rounded his height at 6'1 I would not say anymore but funny some few and himself had said 6'2! The guy was probably 183-184. 6'0.5 max
Pierre said on 4/Nov/18
@Hulver=i think this is not really disrespectful to tell a little bit more than your real height(barefoot),it seems to me lots of men/women are giving their height by wearing shoes or barefoot with a value a little bit rounded up ,so...

@Viper="Why Arnold edge out Evander on video?"
Arnold edge out Evander when Arnold is closer to the camera,and the angle of the camera favors Arnold .When Evander is closer to the camera and the angle of the camera favors Evander Evander edge out Arnold Click Here .Plus Arnold is straight and Evander lots of time break his neck/his posture (his head is a lot in front of his shoulders like here= Click Here but the top of his head is still as high as Arnold's top of head-don't know the shoes here-).When Evander is standing straighter to talk to Dolph Arnold have to look up with his eyes/head to watch Evander= Click Here .Don't know the shoes.
hulver said on 4/Nov/18
Why all 6'2 guys edged him? Watch Commando. He looks just over 6' or 6 on the nose. Peak 6'0.5 at best. He was the kind of guy who always wore advantage shoes. Evander was taller than him by an inch. Maybe on some photos doesn't look but watch him with Dolph Lundgren who had at least 3 inches on him I say 4. Arnold 6 range. 184 cm max! He shrunk 4 to 5 cm.

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

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

@Simon: Looks like I've upset you. Funny you call me short yet you get so angry at what others claim. Seems one of us has a Napoleon complex and it's not me. We both agree on Dolph at 6'4" peak so I really don't know what you're talking about. These days, I'm probably as inclined to argue someone lower than Rob lists them as opposed to higher with Mel Gibson and Michael Douglas being just two examples of that. But that's enough talk about me. If you can stop getting so emotional and melodramatic about these heights and stick to the subject rather than personal insults like calling me short then I'll be happy to debate with you like anyone else.

You don't always look taller - it depends on the height of the shorter person and whether the camera is above their head or not.

Rising - 174 cm
In the pic with Zane where you say Arnold looks a good 186 cm you can see Arnold is closer to the camera, and we all know you look taller when you are closer.

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

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

Rison - 174 cm in all celebpages upgrading heights. I guess short guys tend to mistake more with the taller ones.

Rising - 174 cm
You can clearly see Ken wasn't 6'0. Don't cotinue. He was about 5'10.5

@Simon: Before telling me to learn to think independently, you should learn how to read. I said IF Ken was 183 cm. I suggest you calm down and stop getting so upset about how tall people claim to be. "Tired", "No more!", "Does honesty still exist?" I can tell you melodrama still exists.

Great video. One more proof Arnold was about 183 cm or just over 6'0 prime. Dolph Lundgren has easily 3 inches on Arnold at least and Dolph was 6'4. I see Arnold at 183 cm max on the video or 6'0.25 max.

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

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

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

6-05 peak. 6-2 in his boots. Next to Lewis Hamilton he looks 5-10.5 max today. Forget anything over 6-1 peak,its b/s.

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

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

@jakson: If you just give anyone whatever height you want then of course you can always say Arnold is shorter. Joe being under 5'9" is just your opinion. I always heard he was more like 5'10". Vince Basille was not affiliated with Arnold so clearly his story of measuring Arnold 6'1.5" was not to maintain Arnie's image. He would have never said many other things if he was worried about Arnold's image. He was definitely taller than a flat 6'0" peak. He'd still measure at least 5'11".

@Rising=how do you think Joe Weider's shoes are giving him,they are looking very flat mocasins,maybe a fraction more than Ken's flip flops.Yes Joe forces a little bit his posture,but i don't see 2 inches at the top of their heads,big max 1.5 inches;and the pic was very probably made around 1977(see the gym behind them) and Joe Weider was 57/58 years old with weight gain.I don't see him a full 5"10' here
jaksonistall said on 24/Oct/18
Wait.. Ken Waller 6'0? lol lol and lol
Look at him next to Joe Weider who doesn't even look like a 5'9 guy

Arnold was 1'82-1'83 peak agree on the youtube real Arnold height. Over this is just marketing upgrade. 6 to 6'0.5 peak nowdays 5'10.5- .75
