Are you saying Arnold is 5'8 nowadays? lol. The lowest he could look is below 5'10 like 5'9.75 but If he stands tall for a measurement he would hit easily 5'10. 5'10.25
jabtr said on 24/Feb/22
Arnie is the kind of guy in his peak that could look very average or pretty tall. Might be because of his Mr Olympia built?
Arch Stanton said on 24/Feb/22
There's no way Jimmy Kimmel only had a 1/4 inch on Arnie, if Kimmel is 181cm Arnie looked in 5 ft 10 range....
Linke said on 24/Feb/22
Rob, do bodybuilder's tend to lose more height than usual?
Editor Rob
Can raise the risk of disc damage and some earlier loss
Pierre said on 23/Feb/22
@Raymund = Here is Arnold in good posture next to Hafthor Click Here = The top of his head looks hardly as high as Hafthor's mouth. Hafthor's mouth here is at 5"11' mark Click Here .Then imo the probability Arnold still is full 5"11' looks slim.And even slimer when I look at Rob's posture ,that make me thing the 5"8' mark of the scale is perfect in the best case ,with a possibility that the marks are just a little bit generous (that is my own opinion and debatable of course)
Rudy Valente said on 23/Feb/22
5'10". AS has been peddling that 6'+ lie for his entire career.
Raymund said on 23/Feb/22
@Pierre
What's your guess for Arnie these days? We have similar guess on this page. People always inflate heights not knowing what is real or legit!
Raymund said on 23/Feb/22
Jared Tyler said on 17/Feb/22
Nope.
More like 5'10 in 2022 and peak anything from 6'0.25 to 6'0.5
Jared Tyler said on 17/Feb/22
Peak: 6'0

Today: 5'9

He's had multiple back surgeries so I think it's fair to say he's shrunk 3 inches.

6-1 minimum

Slim, sorry but that's way too low

I get the 6ft1 flat estimates but no way was Arnold only a strong 6ft. He was comfortably head and shoulders above guys in Pumping Iron, many of whom weren't short by any means and wasn't dwarfed by Ferrigno. Pretty sure that mark would leave Willis at 5ft10 tops and Stallone below 5ft8

Maybe first you have to learn how tall is a real 6'1 man. I'm tired seeing how people understimate heights like a real 5'11 or a real 6'0 guy. The problem is that most of the population lie and add 1 or 2 inches and when someone is honest you just can't believe a real height.
Take a look how tall is 6'1 or 6'1.5. Mike O'hearn's real heigght is 6'1.75 maybe 6'2 and has 4 inches on Arnold. Calum Von Moger is 6'1.25 tops, and trsut me he is taller than Arnold in his peak. Luckly Arnold was 6.0.75 but currently he is 5'10 range.

He is probably bellow 5'11 now,more like 5'10.5-5'10.75,many people think he was short at peak because of his current height,even though he was 6'1.5 range

5ft11 now 6ft 1 in prime considering is age he maybe should be slightly taller maybe all the years of weights added up.

@Ethan I'd like to see data that 5'10.5" is average height for "non olds" in the US. I've read average height in the US has actually shrunk somewhat the last few years not increased: Click Here Click Here
Ethan Wolf said on 2/Jan/22
No, it's average in the US for college students. 5'9" is only the average height if you include in it old people who shrunk. In Northern Europe it's usually 5'11"-6'0" and even 6'1" in dinaric alps
Duhon said on 1/Jan/22
@Ethan you have to specify the country. In many countries including the US 5'10.5" is slightly above average height in a handful of others it's slightly below.
Ethan Wolf said on 31/Dec/21
@Nik Ashton
5'10.5" is literally the average height. Unless you're counting 70 yos

This guy met Sergio in the 80s and was giving him max 5"8' .Later in the forum under the article he wrote even 5"7'.The link Click Here Arnold Sergio around same distance to the camera and similar posture = Click Here The difference here is about 4 inches.

@ Bollok - swapping the k in your name for an x would be funny too but your name is funny as it is! Bo🔒🤴

@ Ethan Wolf - I like your name! 6’4” is when you start feeling out of the ordinary and 6’1” is more than tallish, tallish is more like 5’10.5” - 5’11”! 5’7” - 5’7.5” is shortish but that’s all.
Jack Daniels said on 31/Dec/21
Hey Rob! D'you think Schwarzy began to lose height in the 80's or later?
For a professional bodybuilder you probably shrink younger than normal people?
Editor Rob
Sometimes
think he did by late 80's or early 90's (a small fraction).

This is from Mr World 1970, Sergio Oliva who is a 5'9-5'10 guy with Arnold doing a side chest, Sergio looks tiny in comparison to the austrian oak. Click Here

P.S. I know that Arnold gains a few centimeters by doing the side chest but it doesn't seem nothing less than 6'1-6'1.5.

Ethan Wolf said on 31/Dec/21
6'1" is tallish but it isn't that tall anyway, you only start feeling the part when you're 6'4"+. Although it does depends on what state you live in, in the north (like Montana) 6'4" is a lot more common than in the south. This is due to the ethnic Germans who live there. It's kinda like northern Europe where the average height is higher than the US in its whole
valek said on 30/Dec/21
You guys should stop saying bull about arnold's height. Any measure under 6'1 for his prime is bull . Take a look at these photos: Click Here
Dennis tinerino is listed anywhere at 6'0 and Arnold is clearly taller.
Click Here Dennis Tinerino towers a 5'9 Frank Zane.
Arnold today I don't think he is more than 5'11 because his torso is very compressed, he has lost a lot of height but in the past he was a tall man.

Man I agree that Arnold was shorter than People think, but saying that Arnold in his peak was sub 6'0 is not serious. I understand why they don't take you seriously. Please be more realistic. Look at the pic with Robert Patrick in Terminator 2
Click Here
We all know that Robert Patrick was 5'11 with a chance of 5'11 1/8. 180 cm range and nowdays he is 179 cm. Patrick was honest saying 5'11 on Twitter. Arnold was minimum 1 inch taller than him by then. Arnold was over 6'0 withoutdoubt. Arnold was 6'0.5 maybe 6'0.75 on a good day before lunch.
Albertoat5'9 said on 21/Dec/21
Draco said on 21/Dec/21
Arsenio doesn't look 5'11 man. He is probably a strong 5'10 guy 5'10.5 Arnold looks just over 6'1.5 with that footwear. Arnold again sub 6'1 and probably 6'0.5. (184 cm is m guess everytime I see him in the (80-90's) maybe a weak 185 in the 70's but I'd say morning height.
Albertoat5'9 said on 21/Dec/21
Draco said on 21/Dec/21
There is 1'5 inches between Arnold and Robert Patick (4 cm). I'm sure of that. Funny that Arnold nowadays lost more height and currently he is about Robert Patrick's height so 5'10.5
Draco said on 21/Dec/21
Good pic with Robert Patrick Alberto. But just as with Brigitte, I'm not convinced until you give me a series of photos of them, not just one (also measure by their top skulls and eye levels, not poofy hair). Who knows, could be camera angle, posture, footwear, etc: e.g.

Click Here

Click Here

This is what Arnold looks like together with a true undisputably 5-11 man - Arsenio Hall from multiple camera angles:
Click Here
Click Here
This was 90/91 around T2 / Kindergarten Cop time, Arnie simply TOWERED over 5-11 Arsenio. Suspect footwear? Perhaps but didn't seem by much (nothing like Sly's lifts, etc).

His first time on Letterman in 84 promoting Conan the Destroyer, looked about same as Dave, and I'm hard-pressed to believe he was really that concerned about his height this early on in his career to even wear lifts:
Click Here
Seems he kept roughly this same height on multiple appearances on Letterman throughout the late 80s and 90s:
Pretty clear view of flat standard dress shoes in 87: Click Here
Still looked really tall with Dave in 91 T2 era:
Click Here
Click Here

Was he 6-1.5, 6-2 at some point? Maybe, maybe not. But was certainly 6-1 minimum.

Simply put: he was a tall man who lost a lot of height. "Occam's Razor" guys, Occam's Razor. And in the words of Conan: "and if you do not listen to me, then to HELL with you!" j/k LoL ! :D Nice blowing off steam hear once in a while in these height debates. Later chaps!
Alan mctavish said on 20/Dec/21
I would give arnie in is peak 6'0"05 his huge body muscle made him look taller thats all. Believe me i saw a picture of arnie in 1978 standing next to lou ferringou who played the hulk at that time wich i loved as a kid. But i was age 27 when i saw this picture up on a wall and i was suprised to see a younger arnie next to a huge lou who was standing well over the top of him and with lou's huge bulk of a frame he was like a phone box standing next to arnie who was about age 24 a thinck, lou was was about 6'6" tall and he just made arnie seem so small, i remember thincking 'o what' arnie must be about 5"11" if that. His head was just up to lou's chin. Lou had just won the worlds stronest man that year i thinck and no wonder. But tbh i dont thinck i would like to be as tall as that 6ft6. 6ft3 is the tallest i would like to have been. Not over 6ft4. But i made it to 6ft so that will do. Lou is seemingly about 6'3" these days. But thats what happens when your that tall. By age 60 if you were 6ft4 at least you will lose 2 to 3 inches easy. Taking you down to 6ft if you were 6ft3. And its alot and so notice able. My friend was 6'1" at peak height, still a big guy he was and when he got to age 61 i hadnt seen him for 3 years and when i mett him strait away he looked a weak 5'11" i was now taller than him and it seemend strange. But it happens to every one. Now 6ft is big. People say its average height, thats nonesense. 6ft tall and with a great build is a big man. I remember when i was age 16 and i was 5'9"05 and my friend was 6ft and i remember thincking? He is a big guy, even though i was almost 5ft10 he just seemend a big guy. And its funny how 2 inches makes a big difference then i grew to 6ft at age 18 and stopped growing, i thought i would get to 6ft1 but no such luck. If your between 5'10" and 6'0" thats big enough. But i have to draw line some where, i wouldnt say 5ft9 was big but its not small. Under 5ft7 is small, sorry lads!!!!!
viper said on 20/Dec/21
Arnold could look 6-1.5

I think more likely he was 6-1-6-1.25
Albertoat5'9 said on 19/Dec/21
Well maybe Arnold was 6"0.75 20 years before when he was 20 or 30 years old 184.8.185 cm in my really highest guess I can say for Arnold
Albertoat5'9 said on 19/Dec/21
Knowing Robert Patrik was a strong 5'11 in his peak you can see in this pic that Arnold was a little over 6"0' maybe 6"0'.5 at best: For those who use the metrical system: Robert 180-180.5 cm Arnold about 184 cm 184.5 cm at best

Draco said on 17/Dec/21
Nah Eugene, Brigitte fullbody photos say Arnie was at least 6-1. Lol, funny how ppl can interpret the same photos differently. Only last one has them questionably equal or Arnold less, first 4 he flat out beats Brigitte. She listed 6-0, even Editor thinks she could have been 6-1 prime. I think the real question was whether Arnie 6-1 or 6-1.5. 6-0 Arnie would be too small with Letterman, Arsenio, Tom Arnold, etc. In Conan the Barbarian he played against 6-3+ James Earl Jones, 6-4 bodybuilder Sven, 6-8 football player Ben Davidson, Arnold didn't look so small
Eugenio.O said on 16/Dec/21
Draco said on 15/Dec/21
Good pics. These pictures are the proof that Arnold was never even close to 6'1.5 !which is 187-188 cm.
I believe he was 183-184 cm as you can see right there. So anything from a strong 6'0 to 6'0.5 is my guess. If he ever was 6'1 barefoot maybe right after bed and on a good day!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Dec/21
Even Viper thinks no less than 6ft1...
Rising174cm said on 16/Dec/21
@Duhon: I've thought about that as well. In that case, I'd say by the mid 80s or his late 30s, he had lost 0.25" and was 6'1.25", which he held until the mid 90s or his late 40s. By his early 50s or the late 90s, I'd say another 0.25" and he was 6'1" flat. That would actually be pretty normal since the average man lost 1 cm by 50 in a study. That said, Vince Basille's claim of Arnold's arm measurement makes me less than certain of the accuracy so I'd say its more likely he was always more 186 cm than 187.
Ethan Wolf said on 15/Dec/21
I believe he was 6'0.85" aka 185 cm (most likely 187 cm in morning) in his prime and 5'11.3" aka 181 cm (prob 183 cm morning) in end 2021. But don't take this comment too seriously because I never met him, I made this guess only by trusting other celebs' stated self height and comparing in pictures
Duhon said on 14/Dec/21
If we go by Arnold from his bodybuilding days he looked 6'1.5" how long he retained his peak is the question though? He could have started losing height earlier due to the heavy weight training, he actually powerlifted for a period then as well.

6'0.5 is my guess but nowadays is under 5'11, actually closer to 5'10 than 5'11.
Bobbyh3342 said on 11/Dec/21
Arnold was a classic 6'075 in his prime and i think is 5'11.25 today i wouldnt believe anything shorter for a prime arnold
Pierre said on 10/Dec/21
He has never been above 6"0' by comparisons by the decades .
In his 19s next to Chet Yorton listed 5"11' he was looking max an inch taller than him.
In his 25/30S he was 3 good inches shorter than Lou Ferrigno,exactly same postures,both barefoot,both same distance to the camera(I posted this pics here).A young Lou Ferrigno himself was looking clearly shorter than John Larroquette 6"4',Dick Durock listed 6"5.5'/6"6' towered over a young Lou to around 3 inches in Hulk .
In his 37s in Commando in the airplane scene Arnold looks no less than 4 inches shorter than Charles Meshack listed 6"4'(I posted this video here)
In his 41 in 1988 next to Yuri Vlasov listed 6"1'peak, Yuri in his 53s looks clearly taller than him(pics here in old comments)
Rising174cm said on 10/Dec/21
He didn't start looking clearly under 6'1" until the early 2000s when his injuries started to pile up and his surgeries(like his hip replacement) began. Look at him in the 80s with Reagan and Roger Moore. The 6'1.5" peak looks very possible at times while at other times it seemed slightly high, but not too much. He still looked at least a solid 6'0" throughout his first term as Governor. I think he started claiming a height in shoes after he shrunk since he looked about 6'0" when he claimed 6'1" in 2008 and about 5'11.5" when he claimed 6'0.5" in 2013.
Draco said on 10/Dec/21
Based on tons of observations including many barefoot photos of Arnold's prime bodybuilding days, if I'm to be totally unbiased and truly honest, I do believe he was once 6'1.5" on his best day but no more. 6'1" on average during prime more likely. Today, I think he's 5'10.5" having lost 3 full inches.

I find it odd he often fared well with 6-1-ish people (Tom Arnold, David Letterman, Carl Weathers) but sometimes he struggled a bit and equals them at the very most (Reg Park, Brigitte Nielsen, Jeff Bridges). Light lifts maybe?

Another theory I have is the "gorilla hunch" many bodybuilders have to look fuller and tough. It flexes the arms, flares out the lats and crunches the abs, but in doing so curves in the spine losing some height. Heck, I'm a 5-9 guy and doing this I easily lose 1-1.5 inch in height, someone taller would surely appear to lose even more.
Jaime.B said on 9/Dec/21
And here a good one. Arnold with Mike Mentzer(middle) a 5"7.5 guy he claimed 5"8.0.
I can tell you I've seen like 10 videos of Mike Mentzer and I know he was 5'7 range.
Arnold 6'0 range. 6'1 with footwear yes so I can't imagine how some few still say 6'1.5...

Kurtz said on 7/Dec/21
Absolutely. A young Arnold always looks from 6"0.25" to 6"0.75" barefoot and I'm very good guessing heights. I've been watching Arnold since the 90's, and these past years many old bodybuilding videos from 1969-1974 when he was in his 20's next to Mike Mentzer, Frank Zane,etc. Mostly all these bodybuilders where short so Arnold looks even taller. Mike Mentzer was (5"7') and Frank Zane was around 5"7.75'-5"8'
Take a look here. Arnold is next to them and looks about 4 inches taller no more. Once again Arnold 6'0.5 in his best day.

I did some sleuthing with a digital photo of Arnold wearing a tight speedo and standing straight with other bodybuilders (from that Arnold Height website about his proportions). I am 72in tall with a crotch to floor inseam of about 35.5in, I wear 32 to 34 inseam jeans usually and always a 33in dress pant for classic break. Arnold Legs are proportionally about 2-3% longer than mine, normalizing for him being 1.5in taller than me in the photo, with a picture of me in a similar tight Speedo next to him and scaled correctly. This means he has a minimum 36.5 inside leg measurement and maybe as much as 37. I would guess 37in personally. Therefore he probably wears 34-36 jeans and 34-35 dress pants. If you photoshop his legs so that the muscle is gone, he’s actually extremely leggy.

IMO he has to be at least 6’1 peak to even look normal with those proportions, so I guess 6’1.75". Nowadays he looks much worse because his legs are still 37in which would be the legs of a 6’3-4 man and his torso is like that of the average 5’9 man.

Arnold look's 5'11 there. Probably he was 6'0 range in his golden days. I' would not be surprised is he was 6'0-6'0.5. so a big muscular and confident guy could pass as a 6'1 for shorter guy, but I know he was never a legit 6'1. I know how a 6'1 guy looks and Arnold was never this tall barefoot.

Seal said on 28/Nov/21
Rob, who do you think has better chances of measuring taller today and peak? Arnold or James Earl Jones?
Editor Rob
I think Arnie, James could be down to 5ft 10 now.
Jaime.B said on 26/Nov/21
Arnold was a weak 185 in his peak or a very strong 184 range guy (1970's-80's). Peoplewho know Arnie and they where in his circle in the 70's has said Arnold was 6-6'1 but could pass as a 6'2 with that muscle mass! Don't forget most of these guys add 1-2 inches due the footwear, etc. So yes my guess and as I can see is that Arnold was 184-185 max. In this range I notice the difference from a 186-187 which is too tall for him. 186 could be his height first thing in the morning in the 70's.
Actually my cousin is 186 cm and I always thought he was 188-189 cm! He was shocked when I measured him. He looks too tall and I'm 179 cm. I just can't see Arnold as him in his peak because he never was 186-187. The most he ever looked is 6'2 yes but with footwear. 6ft and 3/4 for Arnie and 240 pounds as a bodybuilder then he dropped to 215 pounds for the movies.

There's barely anything between Arnold and Davi there. As I said, I remember the difference being clearer throughout the film. But Davi is literally in the background of that License to Kill still and Dalton at least appears to be walking. You've been here long enough to know that you can't judge anything from that. That's all I'll say on that.

He looked well over 6' in Terminator 1.
Rising174cm said on 18/Nov/21
Pierre's shot of Arnold and Davi is good and Arnold is barely any shorter there, though I did remember the difference being clearer in the film. The Dalton/Davi shot literally doesn't tell us anything at all. I'd have to rewatch License to Kill. But Davi was a bit shorter than Julian McMahon when they co-starred on TV in the 90s so you could argue he was only 6'1.5".

And Arnold could pull off 6'1.5" at other times such as edging 6'1" minimum peak Carl Weathers in Predator and he looked at least that height with Roger Moore in the late 80s. If you believe Bruce Willis was 5'11.5" in the 90s then Arnold always looked 6'1"+ with him back then. If George Clooney was even 5'10.5" then Arnold still pulled off 6'1"+ with him promoting Batman and Robin. He was also pretty much identical with 186 cm Evander Holyfield in the mid 90s. But 6'4" Dolph Lundgren had 3" minimum on Arnold in the mid 90s even when slouching.

186 cm could account for him looking taller than some 6'1" flat guys, but shorter than guys like Davi. I don't believe he could have been any less than 6'1".

Someone should ask Brigitte Nielsen how tall Arnold and Dolph were back in 1985.
berta said on 17/Nov/21
did arnold really ever look over 6´1 except in pumping iron and true lies? I think 186 but i really starting to believe he may even have been no taller than 6 3/4. 185 cm guy. He really look 5´10 alot today.

The measurements Vince Basille claimed for Arnold's arms cast some doubt on the 6'1.5" figure. 186 cm is the safer bet and more consistent with how he looked as Robert Davi was never a full 6'2" yet taller in Raw Deal. Seemed to lose significant height in the early 2000s, but not much until early or mid 50s.

In Red Heat Arnold had (all time) at least 2 inches on James Belushi and Belushi was at least 5'11, he still looks close to 5'11 even nowdays at 67y. No way he was shorter than that, there's a chance he was a hair taller in fact.
Sorbo is probably just jealous because Arnold was and still is a lot more successful than him.
I give Arnold 186cm or 6'1.25, I recognize people around my height easily and he definitely looked it long ago.

i really dont think he was 187 cm peak. more chanse of 185 and at best 186. I dont think many woould agree with this but i think carl weathers was legit 186 cm and arnold maybe closer to 185,5. But i can agree that arnold looks like a guy that can meausre taller than he walks so 187 isnt impossible but i wouldnt bet money on it. He was maybe 1,5 cm taller than ford a couple years ago.Ford is listed 180 now but i think he is closer to 178,5 and that makes arnold still 180 cm.

Kevin Sorbo was probably talking about the current Arnold, who really looks just 5'11 or even less nowdays.
Old age, weight lifting, weight gain, poor posture and several injuries he sustained through the years all contributed to his height loss.

At peak he really was at least 186cm, or 6'1.25 at his absolute worst.
He always looked at least 186cm to me until his late 50s.
Probably got measured at 6'1.75 in the late morning and was 6'1.5 for lunch time. Used to wake up at a full 6'2 and was 6'1.25 at his worst. A very strong 6'1.

Arnold has always been a very strong 6'1 rather than a weak 6'2, he was a tiny bit taller than 6'1 flat guys like Tom Arnold and Carl Weathers but shorter than legit strong 6'2 ones.
Fair Whisper said on 18/Oct/21
He's not over 6'0.25" nowadays, but I don't think he's quite as short as 5'11 flat.

Arnold's peak height was a solid 6'1" IMO.

I watched Arnie's 'Commando' properly for the first time yesterday. It was much what I was expecting, with the inevitable "I'll be back!" and other typical Schwarzeneggian quotations thrown in.

I thought at the beginning, "Why are you messing with him? You'll never get the better of someone like THAT!"

....and they didn't!

He was described as 6ft2, which I believe to have been Arnie's height in 1985, at the time the film was made, and at that time of day, according to his description. For today's height, he's a-getting 5ft11.5. I am, however, giving him 6ft1.5 for his peak evening height.

As he had to skimp and scrape for food while he was growing up, I feel for him. I didn't, but deliberately starved myself as a means of coping with academic pressure.

Arnold has shrunk quite a bit over the years. We remember that the upbringing was brutal "if he wanted to eat he had to hunt his food" it is likely that he lacked some nutrients in addition to competing as a "strong man" he could have damaged the joints, youth is not eternal, age is heavy.

@Pierre, indeed Harrison at 5ft11 would make Arnold know more than 6ft flat,and also Arnold's footwear is not visible,so he could have footwear advantage,but in general overall I'm of the opinion Arnold was more a solid 6ft peak and could often pull off 6ft2 with the help of camera angles and dodgy footwear

Check out Arnold in Terminator: Dark Fate. It looks suspiciously as if he is now crippled. He is only onscreen for a few minutes. In one scene he is standing still and another sitting down. For a brief few seconds he is seen to walk, but the steps he takes are slow and awkward. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that he must now use a walker.

I get what Arnold was saying with the screw your freedom stuff, even If he should have said it with different words.

We are in a pandemic yet so many people are too selfish to not wear a mask/get vaccinated

Yeah I went out yesterday for a mate’s birthday and I don’t know what’s worse, the old people who don’t wear masks correctly or the young people who don’t wear them at all

Viper an Arch are right with Arnold being a strong 6’1. I’d leave a guess of 6’1.25 (cause sometimes stadiometers can be slightly off) but if he measured 6’1.5 he must be at the very least a strong 6’1
Arch Stanton said on 19/Aug/21
I've always thought very highly of Arnie. Find him hard to dislike, he's too charismatic. I admire anybody in any field who gets to the top of their field with hard work, focus and pure dedication even if the people who do it tend to be self-obsessed and flawed people. Some of his recent comments about Trump and "screw freedom" didn't strike a chord with me though, unusual from a man who is usually very positive and inspiring. I can believe a 6'1.5 measurement by the guy who emailed Rob but that would be the most I would have thought. 186 very possible.

Arnold was 6-1 minimum

Years ago I bought into the hype of the below 6-0 stuff, then I came to my senses.

Especially measuring 6-1.5 at night when the the stadiometer measured everyone a half inch shorter than their claim

@Ian C = Tom Brady is fat(hum...very relatively ,not a lot)....But Tom Brady very probably doesn't take doping for his shape...and very probably will never have the same health problems like lots of bodybuilders....
Ian C. said on 17/Aug/21
I take your point, Pierre, and Arnold's movie physique was noticeably lighter than his bodybuilding physique. Even so, to maintain his movie body must have required constant and heroic effort. On the other hand, Sylvester Stallone has also maintained a weightlifter's physique, and yet there are no claims that he has shrunk. So I could be wrong here.

I can reinforce my argument that bodybuilding is harmful by referencing the case of Ronnie Coleman, who has damaged his body so badly that he is in constant pain, and can barely walk. Probably any pursuit of athletic excellence in any vigorous sport is dangerous, because it causes extreme stress that eventually leads to breakdown.

But consider Tom Brady, who is now 44. Google up "Tom Brady shirtless" and he has a roll of fat around his waist. Obviously Brady is not working out like a fiend, which has spared him the sort of injuries that so many fitness fanatics incur as they enter middle age.

Also, all my comments about Arnold Schwarzenegger spring from a pathological dislike of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The guy just bugs me, boy.
Pierre said on 17/Aug/21
@Ian C. But imo you have to consider Arnold stopped powerlifters competitions very young in his 20s,or maybe even before ,when he started bodybuilding competitions, and he stopped bodybuilding competitions very young,in 1975,he was only 28 and was competiting just one more time in 1980.
Robbie Murphy Lee said on 15/Aug/21
182-183 peak
Mightyman said on 15/Aug/21
Arnold has definately shrunk. Just Google photos of him and Terry Crews from the first expendables and compare to more recent photos. Before the height between them looked no more than a inch difference, years later its clearly several inches height difference. Arnold's had hip surgeries that reduce your height, and he's obviously compressed his spine alot via bone loss,and it's very evident. If you look at some photos of him and Michael Biehn in the 80's, to be honest Arnold doesn't look taller than him, probably the same or a fraction shorter. 6 foot peak seems correct

Either 6'1.25 or 6'1.5, im not sure which though. He's a hard guy to judge.
Ian C. said on 6/Aug/21
I'll have to admit that picking on Arnold for short takes is unfair, because this is a phenomenon in movies that covers just about everybody. That's how movies are made these days. Actors speak for less than ten seconds, and the camera blinks. Then the editor assembles the clips into a coherent whole.

But it wasn't always so. Take as an example a sequence in Dr. Strangelove- a whole scene, lasting more than three minutes, is shot in one take. Its the sequence where General Turgidson's secretary answers the phone, speaks to the Air Force colonel on the line, and explains to Turgidson, who is off camera, what the colonel wants. Then Turgidson comes into the frame, speaks with the Colonel, hangs up, and tells his secretary that he has to "mosey over to the War Room." This method of story telling just doesn't happen in movies today. That is, actors interacting with each other, speaking lines of complex dialogue, moving about, handling props, and all the time staying in character, all without a camera blink That kind of acting is like a lost art.

The trouble with Arnold is, he can't even manage ten seconds. He can't even manage ten seconds with no dialogue. In Commando, we first see Arnold walking down a hill, holding a log. He looks profoundly self-conscious. He's just a large, handsome Austrian guy walking past a camera. He is not in character because he doesn't have the imagination to become a character. He just composes his face into a rough approximation of what it might look like if he felt the emotion he was supposed to be feeling. He doesn't actually feel the emotion, which is what skilled actors know how to do.

Steve McQueen was another actor who didn't like dialogue, but who could still act, even when he wasn't speaking. His expressions and mannerisms are the same ones you'd expect to see in the character he's playing. Unlike Arnold, who is either reciting sentences he's memorized, or is thinking about what he's going to have for lunch. In Austrian.
Bobby said on 4/Aug/21
@Pierre

I do not recall any airplane scenes in the original Terminator film. Which film are you referring to? In 1984, I highly doubt that Arnold was as short as you believe he was. He looked extremely statuesque in 1984 and pulled off a convincing 6'2. I don't think he was as tall as guys like Christopher Reeves and Dolph Lundgren, but he was taller than actors such as Harrison Ford.
Bobby said on 4/Aug/21
@Ian C.

I disagree, Arnold wasn't a bad actor. He had a great presence on screen. He was born to portray stoic characters such as the T-800 Terminator and Conan the Barbarian. Also keep in mind that English was not his native language either, so any difficulty he had with his lines can be attributed to that. Although, Bela Lugosi allegedly knew not a lick of English, but still portrayed Dracula for North American audiences.

Pierre said on 1/Aug/21
@Ian C If Arnold was a bad actor ten second takes would show easily his bad perform ... Lot's of movies with some actors you find great have thousand of ten second takes.
Ian C. said on 31/Jul/21
I've just watched Arnold in Conan the Barbarian, and he never does a take longer than ten seconds. Near the end of the movie Conan says a prayer to Crom, God of the Earth, and the prayer is about forty seconds long. He says the first eight seconds, then the camera looks away at men riding on horseback for twenty-five seconds, while Arnold's voice continues with the prayer. Then the camera looks back at him, and he finished up the last five seconds of the prayer. And you just know that that forty second speech was assembled from smaller segments. Arnold could not deliver a forty second speech without the aid of a film editor.

Contrast Arnold's acting skills with Frank Sinatra's. In the Manchurian Candidate, Sinatra has several takes that go on for three minutes. He speaks his dialogue, the other actors in the scene speak theirs, they move around and handle props, and all the while Sinatra delivers the appropriate emotions at the appropriate times. It is said that Sinatra preferred to shoot a take on the first try, so you can see what an extraordinarily skilled and intelligent man he was, with extraordinary powers of memory and concentration.

well of course, Arnold was a major star. But the man couldn't act. He looked magnificent and that was pretty much all he had to offer.
Kurtz said on 31/Jul/21
I my opinion the best charismatic scene in a movie is in Predator.
When Dutch before the final fight screams to call the predator till runway from the countdown is one of the best moment in history of cinema.
And in conan final fight was epic.
Both movies had two of best sountracks in history, truly.
Dwayne can forget stuff like this.
Pierre said on 31/Jul/21
@Bobby = In Terminator the actor(Charles Meshack listed 6"4') next to him in the airplane scene(available in web) dwarfs Arnold of no less than 4 inches... By this comparison 6"2' or even 6"1' or close is simply impossible...

6’1.5-6’2” should be ruled out as impossible

Arnold should be getting 184-185 guesses not 186-188 guesses


Visibly shorter than 189 peak rock so there’s no way he was near 6’2” more near 6’1” 👍
Arch Stanton said on 30/Jul/21
Arnold war immer sehr charismatisch, hatte immer die Eigenschaft, aus jeder Situation das Beste zu machen. Menschen mit seiner Denkweise und seinem Fokus sind selten und werden auf lange Sicht nie scheitern! Heute sieht er nicht mehr als 1,80 aus, jemand hat kürzlich bemerkt, dass Sly neben ihm ungewöhnlich groß aussah!

English: Arnold was always very charismatic, always had that quality of making the best from any situation. People with his mindset and level of focus are rare and will never fail long term! Today he's looking no more than 1,80, somebody recently noticed that Sly was looking unusually tall next to him!
Bobby said on 29/Jul/21
In Terminator (1984), I thought he looked 6'2. In some scenes, he could even manage to look 6'3.

I would give him 6'2 for peak height and 5'11 today.

Also, Rob, you ought to mention that he's also served as the governor of California.
Lee Parker said on 29/Jul/21

Arnie 5 10 now and 5 11 peak.
Dr Decker said on 26/Jul/21
100 percent believe he was never a 6-2 guy. Recently Lewis Hamilton stated how shorter real life he is when they met. 6-0.75 out of bed maybe. Now struggling with 5-11 maybe under.
Pierre said on 25/Jul/21
If he was a so bad actor he would not have this big success all around the world.
About his height ,on good pics he's clearly three good inches shorter than Lou Ferrigno himself looking around 6"3' in his prime next to tall guys(John Larroquette,Dick Durock,Ralph Moëller...).Then I myself exclue all that is above 6"0' ( the old pics/comparisons Arnold/Kevin Nealon Arnold /Jeff Bridges Jeff Bridges/Bruce Boxleitner/Sam Elliot show the same thing)
Ian C. said on 25/Jul/21
He must have been extremely strong but otherwise hopeless as an athlete. I have just watched him in Commando, and his entire appeal is in his extraordinary good looks. He never does a take that is longer than ten seconds, which is effective in disguising his clumsiness and utter lack of acting skills. His performance in that movie is assembled from small clips. It's as if he had sung a song in two-note phrases, and then a sound editor had assembled the clips into the complete song.

In Commando he is described by other characters as huge. Well, not really. Six foot two is pretty large, but it's not as if he were Clint Walker.

Feels like I’m going the same way, my peak height was 6’1.25 in my 20’s. At 45 last time I measured myself I was a tiny bit under 6ft. I have two 3 fused vertebra and a fused SI joint. Also with long term injury my posture isn’t great
I’m going to measure myself first think in the morning and see what I measure.

How can a 6'2(approx) man at just his initial old age become 5'11 flat, but he is really near it but I saw him with a amir Khan(listed at 5'5 here) but amir looks so tall next to him, how it it possible.

@BalticGuy,I tend to agree with your analysis of Arnold's Height.I think he was at peak around 6ft.05,he could probably stretch to 5ft11 now but is consistently looking 5ft10ish.A guy of 6ft.05 can easily look 6ft2 with the right footwear and camera angles in movies.
BalticGuy said on 12/Jul/21
Arnold's always been a bit of an enigma. In some shots he can look like a big guy, and people in his films always ACT like he's this imposing figure, but then from other angles - especially in his later years - he looks positively diminutive - and even in his younger years I'm not sure he ever truly reached 6'1" if only because he looks for all the world to be somewhere closer to 5'10.5" these days in MANY shots, maybe even 5'10", and I just find it difficult to believe that a 3 INCH height loss is normal - certainly isn't for anyone I know - my Grandfather was 6'2"ish and barely lost any height at all by the time he was in his late 60's when he passed away of cancer -even WITH the sickness he wasn't dropping anywhere close to below 6'0" and still stood above 6'1" the year he died. My uncle is in his 60's and still stands around the same height he did when I knew him as a kid - 6'1" - and photographs through the years - and me knowing him my whole life - bear this out.

So for Arnold to lose THREE INCHES or even close to 3 inches seems insane. Yet, Stallone recently posted a photo of him and Arnold together around his 75th birthday this year and Arnold BARELY stands any taller than Stallone, who would be very lucky to hit 5'9" even in his prime. He looks to be an inch taller than Stallone which is why I feel like he can't be much over 5'10" today. If he were 6'1.5" or 6'2" in his prime, that level of height loss would be truly scary short of having a full VERTEBRA or two removed. For the non-Americans, losing 2.5" to 3" in height is 5.6 to 6.75 cm of height loss, which no matter how you look at it is scary big height loss.

So, I'd say being generous at most he'd be 5'10.5" now, MAYBE stretch it to the 5'11" claimed here if you want to be REALLY generous, but even so, that would still be a 2.5" height loss from his prime which is a LOT. Maybe he was only ever 6'0" to 6'0.5" to begin with....or maybe all that heavy weight lifting does things to your spinal column that normal people dont deal with. I lift weights and no height loss (granted I'm in my 30's) yet.....so....I'd just be a little doubtful that he was ever almost 6'2" is all.

That said he was never SMALL, let's put things into perspective: even if we say he was only ever 6'0" in his prime he'd STILL be 1/4th of a foot taller than the average 5'9" man, or 3" (almost 7 cm above average) which means the average man standing face to face with him would be looking him roughly in the mouth, not the eyes. That's STILL a fairly tall guy in a world where 80% of guys are UNDER that height and are actually guys in the 5'9" to 5'11" range who exaggerate their height to sound taller and put 6'0" on their driver's license to feel good about themselves, tell all their friends they're 6 foot, and generally go about life insisting that they are 6 feet tall even though they're 5'10" or 5'11" and everyone can tell they're not 6'0" but go along with it so as not to be confrontational. Like my sister's husband....his eye level's about at my chin and yet he claims to be 6'0" when I'm lucky if I hit 6'2" in the morning. Something doesn't add up.

Anyway, my point is....EVEN if Arnold was 6'0" in his prime or 6'0.5" it's not an INSULT to him to say that - it's not the same as saying he was ever a short or even average height guy. ANYONE legitimately -and I mean LEGITIMATELY where you can measure them 100 times in 100 ways and never come up with anything under 6'0"....ANYONE who is LEGITIMATELY an over 6'0" guy IS inarguably a tall guy. Maybe not a GIANT, no, but tall? Yes. When you're 3" or more taller than average you do get to call yourself tall and it's not an exaggeration. If you're 5'10.5" calling yourself tall that's a bit of a fib since you're at that range "slightly above average" but 6'0.5"? No way around it, that's COMFORTABLY well over average (if you are 6'0.5", for reference, that puts you taller than about 85% of men on the planet - if you're 6'1.5" that puts you taller than about 93-94% of men on the planet, and if you're 6'3" that puts you taller than close to 99% of men on the planet. 6'0.5" is not a small height.

Tom Cruise is "a bit short".
Arnold in his prime even if you downgrade him an inch? Still in tall territory.
Brad Pitt, Leo DiCaprio, guys in the under 6'0" club, including Vin Diesel, Bruce Willis, etc? They're all in average to slightly above average territory (and yes, I'm declaring that DiCaprio is not 6'0" and never was - 5'11" guy tops).

REALLY tall actors: Jeff Goldblum (6'4"), Vince Vaugn (6'4"), Chris Hemsworth (6'3" maybe, might actually be 6'2.5"ish), etc.

Kind of a bit freaky tall: shockingly, Bo Burnham, who I NEVER REALIZED was a bit over 6'5" until recently and that just blew my mind because I always thought he was 5'10" to 5'11" with nobody standing around him on stage for reference. It took seeing a picture of him next to a normal sized woman to make me go "wait...."
