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.

@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.

Hi Rob , how much do you think is the difference between Arnie and Sergio here

Editor Rob
In that photo I doubt those slip-ons give much, so at most 5 inch.

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

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.

Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Nov/18
@houss: I think that's a standard cowboy boot with a 1.75" heel meaning it should add about 1.6" in actual height. I doubt any more than that.

Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Pierre: I definitely agree with some of your points as well as Rising’s. You’ve both made pretty sound arguments imho
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Nov/18
@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!
Pierre said on 9/Nov/18
@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')
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
When was the video of Holyfield and Arnold shot?
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
@Rising and Viper: for reference here is Will Smith with Evander. I have will to be more like 185.5-186 6’1-6’1.25 however

Pierre said on 8/Nov/18
@Rising(comment 8/nov/18)=And Arnold had maybe an advantage by the ground in Predator,in the jungle the ground is rarely perfectly flat.
hulver said on 8/Nov/18
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=Reread my comment i talk about Carl(Weathers)and Arnold in Predator when i talk about the floor
Pierre said on 7/Nov/18
@Rising=and Arnold was wearing cowboy shoes before 1990,very possible he was in cow boy shoes next to Roger Moore=see the movie (from 1986) before Arnold is sitting in the chair at around 0:02 Click Here
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.
viper said on 5/Nov/18
Overall Arnold and Evander look the same height to me on video
Pierre said on 5/Nov/18
Arnold/Carl Weathers= Click Here Click Here Click Here Carl always look taller than him imo here
hulver said on 5/Nov/18
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.

Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Nov/18
@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...
Pierre said on 4/Nov/18
@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. He never was 186 is disrespectful for 186 guys
viper said on 2/Nov/18
Why does Arnold edge out 6-1 Evander on video
Pierre said on 2/Nov/18
@Viper@Rising=watch the pic i posted on 1/Nov if you think Arnold is as tall as Evander...
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Nov/18
@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.
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Nov/18
Arnold looking around 6'1" with Hulk Hogan in 1994: Click Here But we'd need to see if one or both were wearing cowboy boots.

@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.

Man.. Arnold is closer to the camera. Please guys don't post photos like those ones be objective. Rob knows that you look taller on photos If you are closer to the camera. That's the truth.. you can try it and see...
Arnold was 184 cm peak today 179 range. Maybe I sound arrogant but I'm 90% sure 90% I would hit Arnold height peak and current. He is my idol and love him as a bodybuilder and actor !
Editor Rob
You don't always look taller - it depends on the height of the shorter person and whether the camera is above their head or not.
Simon6.0 said on 1/Nov/18
Rising - 174 cm
In the pic with Zane where you say Arnold looks a good 186 cm you can see Arnold is closer to the camera, and we all know you look taller when you are closer.

Yes 182 is too low I agree. I'd say 183 cm lowest and 184'5 max. Just seen thousands of photos of A rnie and with other actors and bodybuilders and all his movies. I can tell you he really struggles with the 6'0.5 mark.
Yes Zane was max 5'9. Always listed at 5'9. We know bodybuilders tend to exaggerate heighs too. In my opinion he was 5'8 or 5'8 range. Arnold was not even 6'1 he always appears with perfect posture standing tall and so confident. Don't forget a lot of bodybuilders were 5'8- 5'10 on those years and made Arnold looked taller. He was tall of course but not the 6'1-6'2 always told. 6'0.5 and I think is fair enough
viper said on 1/Nov/18
How is Arnold only 6-0 in that video?

He looks the same height as 6-1 Evander. If anything Arnold edges him out.

@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.

Simon6.0 said on 30/Oct/18
Great video. One more proof Arnold was about 183 cm or just over 6'0 prime. Dolph Lundgren has easily 3 inches on Arnold at least and Dolph was 6'4. I see Arnold at 183 cm max on the video or 6'0.25 max.

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

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

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

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

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

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

@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
Click Here:
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
Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Oct/18
@Pierre: Waller has at least an inch on Weider even though he's at a disadvantage: Click Here How much do flip flops like that add? And Joe is forcing his posture while Ken is casual.

@jaksonistall: LOL. Better take your own advice if you think Arnold and Ken were the same height. Look at their eye level. The camera is on Ken's side here yet he's still over an inch shorter: Click Here Again, Arnold is easily taller here: Click Here
Pierre said on 23/Oct/18
Ken Waller 6"0' ? Watch the pic in web "Ken Waller Joe weider"when they are standing in front of the Gold's gym(Joe Weider is listed 5"10' in web)
jaksonistall said on 23/Oct/18
You guys need glasses. The pic Arnold next to ken waller who claims to be 183cm doesn't proves nothing! You clearly see Arnold is 1 feet closer to the camera. Stop cheating. Look at Arnold proportions look about the same height or even shorter. Bad pic for compare. Arnold was 6 foot or 6'0.5 and today is max 5'11.
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Oct/18
@Fineas: I don't believe you because that pic is from 2013 when Arnold himself claimed he had shrunk to 6'0.5" so he's obviously not 6'1" five years later. That 6'0.5" was probably in shoes making him 5'11.25" or 5'11.5". Furthermore, Trump might have been 6'2" at his peak, but he was nowhere near 6'3" except in shoes, but he's shrunk just like Arnold has. He was no more than 6'1" by 2013 and has only been in the 6'0.5"-6'1" since then himself. Don't believe me? Look at Trump with Mark Sanchez(an actual 6'2") in 2012.

@houss: Good pics. If Waller was 183 then Arnold could be close to 187 there or at least 186. And Glover was at least 190 cm or a weak 6'3" back then so Arnold measures up well, though Glover has worse posture and a disadvantage.
Bradley said on 22/Oct/18
30 feet from me recently. Weak 6-1 is my guess 2018.
Fineas said on 20/Oct/18
He’s definitely 6’1” nowadays. Don’t believe me? Well Donald trump is at the least 6’2” maybe even 6’3” but that was most likely peak height but this is a photo of them Click Here. They look the same height to me. Now don’t quote me, Arnold might be wearing lifts but if he’s not he’s definitely 6’1” at the least these days

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

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

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

Clint by 2004 when i met him was easy 6'1 185-186cm as he was taller than me 5'11.5 while slouching but i guess wasnt over 6'1 since he looked noticably smaller than Morgan freeman

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

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

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

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

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

Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Oct/18
Your argument is not fair too.. You can't even see his shoes and floor. Looks he has more advantage on angles. Those are not good photos. I have watched all his movies and Clint looks max 2 inches on 5'11 guys in the 90's. He was 6'1.5 range in 1995. So you can laugh what you want. Tired of people who inflated heights and do not even know what is a honest height barefoot. Clint was probaby 191 cm in his 20's which is 6'3 or 6'3 1/8. 6'3.75 is a joke. Dolhp Lundgren was 6'3.75 or 6'4 max and his propotions are bigger than him and taller. And pllease dont say there are not pics together ok.. but you can clearly see he was never 6'3.75. I can go with 6'3 and 1/8 and in the 90's he was 6'1.75 with luck. Today he is in the 6' range wake up
Mario6' said on 10/Oct/18
Rob I remember it from the movie "Any which way you can" 1980. Eastwood claim 6'3 and 210 and he described how he train for the boxing scenes. I guess he was 50 by that time. 6'3.25 tops peak.
Mario6' said on 10/Oct/18
Clint was 189-190 cm in 1980. His own claim what he said on an interview magazine." I'm a 210 pounds and 6'3. In the 90's was about 187 cm. Since the 90's he started loosing height fast
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
@Rising: that seems low for Clint imho as well. 187cm? I could buy 6’2-6’3 as I don’t believe (anymore) he was over 6’3 like he’s listed. That was likely a shoe height
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
Max peak was 6’1” flat. Wasn’t over

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

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

You don't have idea how tall is a legit 6'3 guy barefoot. Clint was 6'2.5 in his 20's. He clearly looks 186 cm range in the Oscars with Arnie who ws 184 cm maybe he had heels. Listen and remember this. Everyone here lie about his own height or just add a good inch to his height. Not fair. Tired of height liers. Just learn what is a real measurement height

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

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

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

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

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

Rising - 174 cm I don't think Jeff bridges was 6'2" at all , Arnie was a professional bodybuilder and his excuse for height loss is excessiv training , surgeries...,but bridges wasn't a bodybuilder at all and be look 181 max next to Reynolds
Ahsan said on 1/Oct/18
Grizz is right I think. Patrick is Arnold’s true peak height. No way 6’2”. Also as jjtallish said bodybuilders in the 70s-80s were quite short making Arnold look extremely tall. I wouldn’t be surprised if there heights were exaggerated also. 3 inches in height is just too much to lose in imo especially considering Arnold was involved in fitness (think of all the chin-ups he did). Also not one of his kids being his peak height makes it pretty obvious. As an example Amitabh Buchan was true 6’1.5 his son is 6’3”.
Rising - 174 cm said on 1/Oct/18
@houss: Those pics are 35-40 years after Stay Hungry and Bridges is noticeably shorter than he was in the 70's, which is why Rob lists his current height an inch below his peak height. The only pic where you can compare height anyway is the last pic from the screening and Bridges wasn't wearing those heels for the screening. Bridges looking barely 6'0" there doesn't mean that was his height in his 20's. An inch loss by your mid 60's is not particularly uncommon.

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

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

Arnold still looks closer to 6ft or 6ft than 5'11 today. He can pull off a good 6'1 without big shoes/boots. Not bad for his age. Was def 6'2 in his prime.

@Jtallish=Next to Chet yorton listed 5"11'(real full 5"11'?)he looks maybe? one inch taller than him(good picture" Arnold Scwharzennegger Chet Yorton" in web with lot's of bodybuilders).He was 19,i don't know if he had finish his growth?It's interesting imo because in this picture we can see different morphologies, he has very long legs compared to Chet's legs but he's around Chet's height

Because he never was 6'1.5. Just marketing or adding a full inch easily. His real height was max 6'0.5.
Today he is in the 5'10.5 range. He could pass as a 6'1.5 man around short people. Dont forget in the 70's when he was a bodybuilder all or most of them were 5'9 average. Arnold looked taller than he was. Strong 6 footer 100%
Ahsan said on 25/Sep/18
I’ve got a problem with his peak height. If he was 6’1.5 in his prime then why aren’t any of his children that height. Normally children particularly boys end up taller than their fathers. None of his children are his peak height estimation. Even his former wife is quite tall. I’m 6 inches taller than my father. I know it’s notvslways the case if the father is really tall but one would think one of his boys would atleast be his peak height.

Mike o Hearn imo looks something like 2 inches taller than Stan Efferding listed 6"0'(good picture in web=very close one to the other and face to face,by considering the postures)
In the picture Rob/ Haftor Julius you can see the mark 6"0' corresponds to Julius tip of nose.
Now look at Stan Efferding next to Julius(good picture in web back to back same posture)=Stan in comfortable sneakers and julius barefoot=Considering his advantage of shoes(around 1 inch imo) it seems to me difficult to see Stan as high as Julius tip of nose imo ,even with a small error of appreciation

TruthSeeker said on 21/Sep/18
Rob I totally agree this guy. Arnold is about 5'10.5 nowdays and in his peak was 6'0 or 6' 1/4
All he says makes sense and as a big fan I watched his movies and he always looked 6'1 max in his first movies with shoes. So clearly was max 6 to 6'0.25. Knowing he is about 5'10.5 and looking at him you see even all his problemas he holds a good posture and is impossibe he ever was 6'1 or over please!
Here in the spanish interview the youg lady says he is about 1.80 m and this interview was in 2014. Arnold was max 1'84 m. We all know Hollywood is marketing and 6'2 sounds better than 6 of course. His real height barefoot was 6 or 6'0.25. He was never more than 183.5 cm
At 5:50 she says: " He is not ver tall he is 180 cm max
Click Here

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

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

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

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

I met Arnold more than once and I always said that he was around 180cm. 5'10.5 is around 179cm, so it’s not a big difference. People heights fluctuates around the day and due to footwear there is always going to be some minor error while estimating someone´s else height.

@gunton Mike O'Hearn is only 49 and always hold a good posture, i don't think he lost anything yet.
TruthSeeker said on 21/Sep/18
Arnold is about 5'10 1/2 today. I am 5'10 flat and met Tony Doherty in person at Arnold Classic Australia and we are the same exact height. I think Arnold at his peak was about 6'0 to 6'0 1/2 tops. 6'1 1/2 is too generous LOL.

Arnold and Tony Doherty interview video for 2018 Click Here

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

Is Arnold genetically taller his sons in his youth? I don't think so if anything shorter and or similar height. The reality is Hollywood is bigger than life and certainly 6'2 sounds much better versus 6'0 for action hero movie star status.

Rob how tall do you think Superstar Billy Graham was in his prime? His billed height was 6ft4 and he looked really tall in all photos and videos but nowadays he looks under 6ft. Must be all those health problems with his liver transplant and surgeries. There was a time when he made Arnold looked that's an achievement lol.

@Danimal =In the old picture arnold/Evander(the first pic you posted on 14 /Sep/18)=
For me Evander in reality is taller than Arnold and break his posture to talk face to face with Arnold,watch how many his head is in front of his body/ his shoulders, and even i think his head tilts on the left side then he has a disadvantageous posture for his height in the pic.
By considering Arnold's hairs i don't see Evander really shorter than Arnold here even in his disadvantageous posture.
In the picture 1996 Premiere of Eraser,even if Evander is standing more distant to the camera and has no hairs, i see him taller than Arnold.
gunton said on 17/Sep/18
Mike O'Hearn is 6'2 on the nose no more. All of these guys add 1 inch and liea bout height. Mike was 6'2 on the nose 187'5. Today is maybe 187 not less. He has good genetics and I dont think he lose height If he did maybe just 1/4 inch

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

@Pierre: I think that's because Russell can look taller in some films due to boots like Backdraft and Williams was somewhere in the 5'6.5"-5'7" range peak, but 5'6" flat by the end of his life. Arnold was 4 years older than Williams, though so it's just as good of a bet he lost some height by 1998.

Arnold was a flat 6'1" in peak. Nothing like 6'2" territory. Might have woke up 6'1.5" in his youth but so does every genuine 6'1" guy.

Today Arnold falls below 5'11" in the evening. Lost a full 2" possibly slightly more. I suspect 1" in the knees and 1" in the back/neck.

Barry Fl said on 4/Sep/18
There's a lot of BS talked about bodyfat levels - even more so than height (because it's not as immediately obvious to the majority of people that the person is talking out of their backside). 3% is very, very low - a person couldn't stay at that level for long without ending up in hospital. Athletes tend not to have such low bodyfat levels because it would hugely - and negatively - affect their performance . Even bodybuilders struggle to get the timing right - dropping their fat levels for the day of the show and not much more than that. Actors who get shirtless for films do the same - they get their fat down, film their shirtless scenes, then start eating properly again so they don't keel over.
Dave279cm said on 4/Sep/18
There is another pic of Arnold from that same event,and Arnold looks slightly taller than Hollyfield.There is also a more recent pic of them together,and Hollyfield looks about 2 inches taller.
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Sep/18
@Pierre: Arnold may have had cowboy boots, but Kirk had cowboy boots custom built with internal lifts and/or an extra large heel specifically to make him taller. Compare Kirk's boot heels to Burt Lancaster's and both are dressed western clothes: Click Here Click Here Burt has a standard 1.75" cowboy heel while Kirk looks to have at least 2.5" Cuban-type heels. As for Moore, it's a fair point about footwear being unknown, but Arnold looks taller by a clear margin and Arnold wore cowboy boots primarily in the 90's and later, but not much earlier. Also, I think Moore had to still be closer to 6'1" in the 80's. A 68 year old Roger Moore was barely 1 cm shorter than Pierce Brosnan in 1995. Arnie wasn't looking up to Holyfield here: Click Here Holyfield looks like he could edge him out here at the Eraser premiere: Click Here but it depends on the photo. In some 90's photo Holyfield looks taller like that one and in others Arnie looks taller like the first one. That tells me they were probably very close. Arnold still looked tall in 1998. Here he's towering 5'6.5"-5'7" Robin Williams by at least 6.5"-7": Click Here Click Here He could still look around 6'1" to me through 1999 so I think he began shrinking noticeably around '99 or 2000. This makes sense with his age and injury history since he was not much over 6'0" by the time of Terminator 3.

@Rising=your comparisons Arnold next to Roger Moore(1988)=don't know if Arnold was in cowboy shoes?Now look at older pictures(1984) in web" Roger Moore/Christopher Walken".Christopher(listed 6"0'peak,full 6"0'?) looks lots of time easily taller than Roger.

Antonio Brown the US Football player? 3 %?? I call BS, nowhere near it, more like 8%. Helmut Strebl is what a genuine 4 % bodyfat looks like. I doubt Arnold was ever under 7%. Ronaldo is 7 or 8% and he looks very ripped.

viper said on 27/Aug/18
I just saw on TMZ that Antonio Brown has 3 percent body fat.

Did Arnold ever get that low?

No. Arnold has mentioned his bodyfat in interviews and books etc, and it was never that low. Probably double it. You only have to look at his competitive photos to see that bodybuilders of that time carried more fat than they do these days. I'd say the lowest fat Arnold had was maybe in the 1980 Mr Olympia - and he looked totally drained and drawn there.
Mariosix-four said on 30/Aug/18

@Pierre: Kirk Douglas was one of the most notorious lift wearers in Hollywood back then. He was basically the Stallone of his day. And there are plenty of examples of Arnold looking 6'1" range with Carl Weathers, Tom Arnold, Roger Moore, Evander Holyfield, Jeff Bridges etc. I'm not sure of the exact difference between Arnie and Lou Ferrigno.

@viper: I doubt Arnold was 3%, but then I wouldn't have guessed Brown 3% either. I think a bodybuilder like Frank Zane with less mass had lower bf than Arnold back in the 70's.

I always said he was 6'0.5. He always looked that height. In Pumping Iron (his first movie) you can see he was tall yes taller than mayority but you clearly see he was beteween 6 and 6'1 barefoot. He inflated his height or rounded up up. I see a 184 man no more. This year a friend met him at Golds Venice and told me he was about 5'10.5 my friend is 5'11 on the nose and he said he was clearly taller than Arnold

@ Rampage,

Arnold himself claimed 6'1.5". This means 6'2 or anything over 6'1.5" is 100 percent impossible. Also 6'1.5" is very unlikely as well. Fact is most men inflate their height. You think Arnold was downgrading himself when he said 6'1.5"?

Do I think Arnold was tall? Yep.

Is he taller than Me? Yep

Could he kick my Arse? Yep

Was he over 6'1? Nope.

@Rising=Yes maybe he had not finished his growth;next to Spyros Bournazos,Bob Lee Minor(Commando),Arnold finished his growth even probably next to Lou Ferrigno in old pictures,which can make me think Arnold's peak of height is maybe not 6"1.5' or 6"1',or just after a very good sleep(8 hours)
jaki smith said on 25/Aug/18
He was around 183'5 peak. With good posture, his hair and shoes could always pass for a lot as a 6'1 and over. On the other hand people usually believe a wrong idea on height adding a but 2 cm always. If somone is 176 cm he says he is 5'10 etc.. Arnie was barefoot 183 range 184 at best barefoot. Today 180 max

Low angle is exaggerating the difference with Caviezel in the first pic and ground looks to be in his favor. Arnie might be slightly shorter now, but that was 5 years ago. It does show how much Arnold has shrunk, though.

@Pierre: If you're trying to convince me Arnold wasn't a solid 6'1" then you'll have to show me the picture in particular that shows this. I've seen varying heights for Yorton, though 5'11" sounds about right, but Arnold was only 19 when Yorton beat him so possibly not at his full height
Jim hoppa said on 24/Aug/18
Heres a little thing you should try regarding be measured on your height. Im 6-2,5. I stood straight up back straight bare feet and my height is almost spot on 6-2.5 at 10.00am. Then I did the same but took a breath in arched my back and maxed out as much as I could without looking strange. My friend said I was 6-3.25 when I was maxing out. You might depending on the person gain more height? My point is I think arnie did exactly this. He is perhaps just over 5-10 today but was close to 6-2 in prime???? Hmmmmm. 4 inch loss is perhaps too much to believe. Imo he was around 6-0.5 prime height.
Jordan87 said on 24/Aug/18

Combo of both. He def lost some height, over an inch? Likely not. He also inflates his height as 90 percent of men do.

I think he was over 6'0 in his prime. 6'2"? Not even close.
Sotiris Gravas said on 24/Aug/18
@Rob Here's Arnie in cowboy boots next to 6'1.25" Jim Caviezel... Assuming Caviezel is in dress shoes w/ 1.25" heels, Arnie has about a 0.5" footwear advantage on him... putting Arnie at 5'10.75" barefoot. Time for a downgrade... Click Here , Click Here

Gotta say, the first pic looks more like a 3" difference. Maybe Caviezel isn't standing perfectly straight in the second. Either way, time for downgrade.
Editor Rob
There are photos Arnie falls shy of 5ft 11, but I think there are still those in which he can look about that height range.

It's obvious he always lied about his height. People know this. you just have to see all his old photos and pics and vids from his competitions. He was tall yes and taller than most of those bodybuilders. Most of them were 5'8 to 5'10 Arnold was over 6. His real height was 6'0.25 range. 183-184 guy too many pics and videos and easy to guess his height.

@Pierre: You can believe whatever you want, but I already explained why I don't think Basille is lying. The fact Arnold looks a solid enough 6'1" to me makes it easier for me to believe, but I said there could have been a small error in Arnold's favor because he could look more 186 to me in Raw Deal or campaigning with George H.W. Bush.
Barry Fl said on 16/Aug/18
(Myself said on 14/Aug/18.....)

Agree with all this. 'Busting a gut' is nothing more than standing up straight - it's not going on tiptoes or wearing lifts or anything. I've also known cases of people doing this and it actually doesn't change their measured height. Quite funny. Arnold's posture has always been fairly relaxed, so maybe it helped him. But whatever... it was still his height.
Myself said on 14/Aug/18
Rob, you actually proved that busting a gut doesn't add height, at least in your case. I think if it does add a fraction then it's because of the fact that the person generally has worse posture and by busting a gut just gets back their "lost height"...I don't think Arnold would have really had any posture problems when he was measured, considering how all that muscle mass would make it easier to mantain perfect posture.

@Rob: That's true, but at least any measurement is better than we have for most. I'd also bet Arnold did measure 6'1.75" earlier in the day at one point. Perhaps a late morning measurement or a slightly favorable one. @Juby: Luna is noticeably closer to the camera in all of those photos.
Barry Fl said on 10/Aug/18
I'm the first person to say that Arnold has obviously lost height, but I can't accept he's 5'10 (or less). I've seen him close-up in person, most recently last September, and if he isn't still 5'11 then he's near enough for comfort.
Juby said on 10/Aug/18
Arnold and Gabriel Luna are listed the same here (5'11.25"), but as we all can see now, Arnold is shorter than new Terminator:
Click Here

So Gabriel is at least 6 feet as he claim, or Arnold is around 5'10" today.
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Aug/18
@Rob: That's true and Arnold even mentioned standing as tall as he could when his daughter measured him more recently, but I was thinking more of a possible error the other direction since even your stadiometer added around 1/8", iirc.
Editor Rob
It is unfortunately one of those unknowns. If the stadiometer was really accurate, then Arnie probably bust a gut to 6ft 1.5, if it wasn't accurate, then possibly a fraction less.
Canson said on 9/Aug/18
@Danimal: 3.5” would mean he’s only 5’10 today or less. That’s a lot to have lost. I would still say he’s 5’11” today

And the fact he clearly doesn't like Arnold one bit and hasn't hesitated to portray Arnold in a negative light makes it improbable he'd make up a story of Arnold measuring so close to his claim. He'd likely say Arnold was shorter if he were making it up. So the only real question to me is accuracy, but I'd be surprised if he was more than a small fraction off and there's quite a bit of evidence to at least place Arnold solidly 6'1" peak so I wouldn't argue less than 186 cm personally. But I think he's "only" shrunk 2", maybe 2.5" max, which is still a lot for a 70 year old. If he's not at least 5'11" then his son Patrick, Leonardo DiCaprio, Emmanuel Macron and Til Schweiger all need significant downgrades. Just look at my post on 24/Jul/18. Either that or Arnold must have began wearing lifts and I haven't seen evidence of that.

There definitely is some room for error with measurement, but imagine Arnie getting measured in his prime...I doubt he stood loose, he probably breathed in and was maxing out.

I have personally witnessed a guy around Arnie's age who has shrunk 2 inches from 6-2 to 6-0 the last 4 years or so. It's crazy to see.

Then factor in the bodybuilding for Arnie, it's not a surprise he has shrunk 3, maybe 3.5 inches

He's also had hip replacement, which you do lose height from (look it up online). They literally cut the femur bone. In Arnold's case, his upper torso (spinal column) has also compressed to an unbelievable state. He's 1" shorter than what he's being listed on this site. Imo, he's lost 3.5" since his tallest height.

Met him 2 years ago. I was 182cm (measured in the evening) that same day and Arnold was taller than myself. I’ve no idea if he was wearing lifts or not but regular shoes. I know someone that stands 180cm and was way shorter. This was at the Arnold Classic. If Arnold is really 180 (5ft11) and was taller than myself without wearing tricky shoes then I can understand when people say Sly Stallone reaches the 5ft10 mark or Brad Pitt stands “shoes” blink blink 😉

In old pictures in web "Reg Park/Arnold Schwarzennegger" Arnold did not look taller than Reg Park(listed 6"1')who was 19 years older than him and maybe lost a fraction of height in this pics.Sometimes Reg look a little bit taller imo.
Barry Fl said on 8/Aug/18
People keep bringing up bodybuilding as the reason Arnold has lost height. I know two men of about the same age as Arnold who've never lifted a weight in their lives and both have lost 2 or 3 inches since their young adulthood. It does happen.

Peak height was legit 186.5-186cm.No way he is under 186cm

82 Guinness book of records had him at 185cm..

With his age plus bodybuilding, I can easily believe he was 6-1.5 and now 5-10.5 at best.
Matt99 said on 6/Aug/18
186 peak rob? 187 to possibly 180 now is a lot of shrinkage even for a former bodybuilder.
Robinson said on 6/Aug/18
Peak height was legit 186.5-186cm.No way he is under 186cm in his peak height.
Well today yeah,he lost some height deffinetly.
But hes still standing at 5"11 legitly.His daughter said she had insoles,and he slightly bended over her.He still would edge 5"11 in measurement with breath and standing straight.
Honbel said on 5/Aug/18
Arnold sometimes look 5'10 but I agree he is 5'10 3/4 (1'80) but not over for sure. Being 5'10 3/4 there's is zero chance he ever hit 6'2 not even 1.5 He was 6 and 1/2 From 184 to 180 is a reasonable shrink loss in his case
HvK said on 5/Aug/18
Arnold is 1.80 nowadays. Full stretched he would be as tall as her daughter in that pic. Current height 5'10-3/4. Peak height 1.88 or 6'2"
Honbel said on 4/Aug/18
90 % of people are height liers. Learn how to measure and I guess you are not 6'2 to judge honest 6'2 guys who were taller than him with out doubt. He was 6'0.5
@christinaschwarzenegger repond her height as being 5'10.75 on the pic Arnold upload with her for his birthday and Arnold is shorter nowdays than her 5'10.75 daughter. Arn old is 5'10 1/4 today impossible he ever was over 6'0.5.

ManKo a legit 5'11 he was slighty taller gave us evidences today Arnold is 178-179.
Pierre said on 4/Aug/18
In the movie "Les Titans"(or"Arrivano i Titani"1962) Serge Nubret is standing face to face with Giuliano Gemma (listed 181 in web)just before their gladiatoral combat .Imo Giuliano is taller than him by more than one inch.
Pierre said on 4/Aug/18
In "Commando"(Airplane scene) Robert lee Minor listed 6"2' is taller than Arnold by at least 2 inches imo.(watch just before they sit down on the seats of the airplane ,when Robert take off his hat...)

Peak : 186-187
Now: 180-181
JayT said on 3/Aug/18
Arnold was easily 6ft 1 and 3 quarter inches in his prime, musclemag measured him at that but rounded up to make it easier in print, vince basile measured him about the same and has no reason to lie. Judging heights by pictures is crazy, i can stand in a way that i lose a couple of inches, perspective, floor level, posture all factor in. The latest I read from arnold himself regarding his height he said joe manganiello was 5 inches taller, he's 6'5". So that's an admittance of nearly 2 inches height loss from his peak. I think many people think arnold is going to be 7ft or something so are surprised when he's much shorter in person.
Honbel said on 2/Aug/18
Nowdays fake reality: peak 187 nowdays 181
TRUTH :Peak 183 Nowdays 178'5
viper said on 2/Aug/18
You can argue 6-3 there

He really does look 6-2 there

HvK said on 1/Aug/18
It's pretty obvious by now that his peak height was 1.87 at the very least. Current height is much lower, though. About 5'11" or even a tad less. Pics with Sir Roger are a game changer, tbh.
arun kc said on 1/Aug/18
Arnold's son Patrick is 5-11.not 6-1 as he is claiming.his daughter Cristine is 5-8 max .I don't know how she is claiming 5-11 lol which is Nicole Kidman height! To wit
her mother Maria who is 5-6 as listed by Rob also claimed 5-11!
Which is truly astounding- height inflation of 5 inches!
I think Patrick's modelling agency also listed him as 5-11
Truly very rarely do you find celebes giving their real heights.not more than 10% to 20% in my opinion.even lay persons exaggerate their heights.
arun kc said on 1/Aug/18
Arnold peak height 6ft. Current height 5-10. Looking at their photos to estimate actual heights by relative comparison, I find most of the body buiders current and past are listed 1to 2 inches more than their actual heights.
Height inflation seems to prevalent in all sports, in nfl,nba soccer tennis boxing make their already considerable height even more impressive
Truth even for such trivial thing as height is rarely valued in the today's world.
HvK said on 1/Aug/18
A solid 6'2" peak height according to this 1988 pic with Sir Roger Moore, who was by then a 6'0" in his 60's.

He is over 5'10. I would say a very strong 5'10. ManKo give us evidences too as a legit 5'11 he was slighty taller. Peak strong 6 footer maybe closer to 6'1 than 6'

arnold looked huge when he was competing
Honbel said on 29/Jul/18
Rob the 6'1.5 has gone to far. Is time for downgrade him come on. Let's be rational and realistic. He was a weak 6'1 guy at best. He always add 1 inch to his height at least. In movies too as a main character it was necesarry he was thr big and tall guy. In all his young pics and with other people you see he was more 6'0.5 and thi days near 5'11.
Juby said on 27/Jul/18
Some photos of Arnold and Reg Park from 60s and 70s (Arnold's peak). Reg Park was for sure 6'1" and Arnold looks the very same height in almost every photo, if not a little bit shorter.

There's much more of it in google (both are barefoot). Even Arnold himself claimed to be 6'1" i late 60s. 6'1" peak guys, not more, move along.

Ey ManKo you are the guy who met him and spend time with him. Some said Arnold was taller tha you on the photo but in my opininion you look taller than him. You said you are 180 cm in the evening right? If it's true then Arnold is 179 cm nowdays at 70
Pierre said on 25/Jul/18
@Heighty=In my opinion,in the picture you posted Arnold/Wilt,the camera is very low , and the floor is maybe not perfectly horizontal.In others pictures in web Arnold /Wilt,the camera is higher then the angle is more neutral for them,both are in shoes and the floor looks regular= the difference of height between Arnold and Wilt seems more important than in the pic you posted even if Wilt is standing generally in a more relaxed posture than Arnold
Glisten173cm said on 25/Jul/18
He was never over 185 cm and 185 cm is just below 6'1
heighty said on 25/Jul/18
Just to clarify with the Wilt Chamberlain picture - Click Here - I measured them head to toe using computer software, so it's an exact pixel measurement. Adjusting for Arnold's slouch, 6'1.5" to 6'2" is correct. Obviously there is room for small error, but what it proves without any doubt is Arnold was DEFINITELY at least a 6'1" guy. You can't possibly put him any shorter than that. If you're still arguing that, you probably have jealousy issues about his physique. I do suspect the heavy weight lifting compressed his spine and gave him a more variable height than most people, and he lost a lot of height with age. He also had some bad injuries. He looks so stiff and compressed now.
T1 said on 24/Jul/18
@warren it's pretty normal for someone to lose that much by that age, he's in his 70s
