How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Height

5ft 11 ¼ (181 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1 ½ (186.7 cm)
Austrian actor, bodybuilder and politician best known for starring in movies such as The Terminator, Predator, True Lies and Total Recall.
I'm 6'2". I've heard rumors that I'm really much shorter in real life - like 5'6" or something like that - which is ridiculous. I can assure you this is not the case. People look up to me, and not just because I do a lot of work in the community. I mean, most people really LOOK UP to me.
Many people who have met him in his early career have said he was between 6ft 1 and 2, although a genuine 6ft 3 man like Kevin Sorbo thought differently, saying with a straight face: "Arnold Schwarzenegger's about 5-11...yeah he says he's Six Three". This estimation is shared by respected actor Richard E. Grant who said "I meet the financial and physical 'muscle' of Tinsletown, in the persons of Mr Stallone and Mr Schwarzeneger...both of whom are substantially shorter than six foot."
Jon Meade said Arnie told him in a 1980 interview he was "6ft 1.5" and bodybuilder Vince Basille gave an insight into a young Arnie's height in an email to me, in which he described how he personally measured Arnie in 1969 at 6ft 1.5. Arnold has also recently said that he was "6ft 1 and 3/4" but now has shrunk to 6ft 1, as measured by his daughter and in 2013 mentioned he was down to a worrying 6ft 1/2 inch.

Wouldn't have guessed he looked over six feet with Jai.

juby: A person dont lose height through aging before 40-45, at 50 many people have lost maximum 1 centimater and 1-1.5 inches at 70, why dont you go read medical litterature on google on this subject before you spread your nonsense?

I am 35,about 6.3 now just as i were at 20 even though i lifted since then.

Next to Jeff Bridges looks just over 6-0 flat. Peak 6-0.5

Rob something went wrong with the conversion, shouldn´t it be 6´1 1/4" peak?





:)
Editor Rob
It's a figure many believe he was, that's for sure, I think half the folk would vote for 186 range.
JJStyles said on 18/Jan/18
Rob how much height does a male lose percent? and how much does a woman lose percent?
Editor Rob
You would expect a man to lose a solid inch by the time he is 70, a women closer to 2 inches by early 70's.

A man losing 2 inches by 70 is greater than average, 1/2 inch below average.
Samwells said on 17/Jan/18
Arnold's peak height taller than Roger Federer and same as Djokvic? lol
Looks on the video with Jeff Bridges Robert Englund 184 range. I can't even but 185 (which is 6'0.75) 6'0.5 Heights busted as always...
THE REAL ANNONYMOUS said on 17/Jan/18
tree!! thats awesome footage of Arnold in bare feet with Jeff Bridges and Robert Englund!!
Can we please put to rest anything shorter than a peak 6'1.5

Rob.... whats your take on this footage???
Editor Rob
I think arguing Arnie under 6ft 1 was hard with that clip.
tree said on 17/Jan/18
Arnold,Jeff Bridges and Robert Englund Click Here Arnold has no shoes
Barry Fl said on 17/Jan/18
Personally I believe Arnold could have dropped below 6'1 by T2 - if we take the 1969 measurement of 6'1.5 as a starting point. But I'm not going to accept it as a fact without any proof. And I'm pretty sure that this pre-production measurement doesn't exist.
Ferry said on 17/Jan/18
Anyway he looked 182 range barefoot in 1990-1991 T-2. I agree Juby5'9 3/4 Arnold wears big motorcycle boots (+1.5" according to arnoldheight.com article), specific haircut (another +0.5") and in the most of the scenes he is next to the young Eddie Furlong or Linda Hamilton (both short). In T2 he looks for a strong 6'2 guy (188 cm easily), but barefoot - I can buy that he was actually 182 cm.
If Arnold was 182 range at that ime at 43 years old still young healthy good posture his max could not be over 183'5 in his peak.
Barry Fl said on 17/Jan/18
Ferry - Sorry, but Robert Patrick saying he was almost the same height as Arnold is not proof of that supposed T2 pre-production measurement. It's proof of nothing except Robert Patrick trying to make himself look a bit more studly. Especially if he still says Arnold is "6 foot or 6'1" (your words - his exact quote was "I think he's about 6 foot 1"). This site allows Robert Patrick 5'11.5 at peak (which he would have been at time of filming).

And as for the constant cry of 'but Arnold was wearing boots' - so was everyone else in the film! You'd think they were all running about barefoot or in carpet slippers. Look at the start of the movie where Arnold faces off against the bikers (who were wearing boots), which he filmed in very flat deck shoes (visible in behind the scenes footage).
Juby5'9 3/4 said on 17/Jan/18
Does anyone have the link, where someone claimed that Arnold was measured 5'11.75 in 1990 (T2 pre-production) and Clint was 6'3.5 in 1980 (during production of "Any Which Way You Can" if I remember correctly)? I cannot find it. :(
Jim Hopper said on 16/Jan/18
In the video recently with Jay Leno both are stood facing each other. Arnie looks just about the same height as Jay. Proof hes not 5-11" today. Peak is 6-0.5 max.
Ferry said on 16/Jan/18
Barry Fl it's not a rumour. Is true. Robert Patrick was 5'11 at that time and on the interview the making of said: Arnie is about my size I think he is 6 or 6'1 and I'm 6'. But as you can see he exaggerate his height. You can visit his height listed here. He was 5'11 and Arnold about 6' no more
Juby5'9 3/4 said on 16/Jan/18
@Paul
"If Arnold was 182-182,5 cm in Terminator (5'11.5-.75) how can anyone can believe he was 187 cm? Over 185 cm is so hard to believe. Just listen a lot of testimonies, pics, etc. His current height is perfect but his peak was at least 1,5 shorter, mayority can't even notice 1-2 cm (1 inch) and real heights. You should learn what's a real 187 cm man barefoot."

Arnold wears big motorcycle boots (+1.5" according to arnoldheight.com article), specific haircut (another +0.5") and in the most of the scenes he is next to the young Eddie Furlong or Linda Hamilton (both short). In T2 he looks for a strong 6'2 guy (188 cm easily), but barefoot - I can buy that he was actually 182 cm.

Besides... this wasn't Arnold's peak. He was 43 back then and he could have already lost some height. The mystical "6'1.5 measurement" was in 1969, 21 years earlier. If Arnold's peak was 6'1, he could went down to 5'11.75 in 21 years. Seems legit to me.
Barry Fl said on 16/Jan/18
I occasionally see mention of this supposed T2 production measurement of 5'11.75. I've never seen any proof to back this up. Don't know where it came from but let's not start accepting it as a fact until we see any evidence to go along with it. As far as I know it's nothing better than an internet rumour started by one person and passed around since then.
Edmund said on 15/Jan/18
You guys no that if your over 183cm 6feet u can drop to 177cm at your lowest my brother is 183cm that's how I know and im way taller then him and I drop to 186cm but really am 198cm morning it all depends on what u do in the day and if u don't sleep u will continue to drop down to your lowest and thatis truth try it yourself self alot people judge way to much so Arnold is actually still 186cm in the morning the taller u are the more u drop in height especially when you're in your 20s u will lose more cause the disc in your spine can comprise up to 15cm or more like i said depends on how tall u are

Big G gave a poison to Arnie for shrink him more and more until 5'6.5"
Paul said on 15/Jan/18
If you don't believe me just search his bodybuilding years next to Frank Zane, he looks 2 inches taller 2'5 on him, Lou Ferrigno ( tower Arnold almost 3 inches at least. He was 191 cm in his peak). Legit 6'2 guys towered him. I can't buy more than 6'0.75 in his best day.

I find it sad to see that Rob is being so heavily pressured lately to change the estimate of Arnold's height because a noisy hardcore don't like it (despite never having seen the man himself in real life). We're all entitled to our opinions, and should never insist anyone change theirs - especially without concrete proof. Let Rob make his own mind up. If you don't like it, that's fine. He's not asking you to change yours. For what it's worth I roughly agree with Rob's estimate, both peak and current. And I've stood next to Arnold.
Paul said on 15/Jan/18
Well thank you for answering and I know you are doing a great job. This site is so interesting and popular actors know this page. Congratulations for all this years. Just saying It'll be better sometimes you do downgrades knowing the average guess and so many testimonies. Saying a lot of people guess him 6ft 1, 1.25 and 6ft 1.5. makes a 6'1.25 average again on those heights. Well thank you again and hope you keep working in this site.
Juby5'9 3/4 said on 15/Jan/18
Yesterday I re-watch "Raw Deal" (1986). In a lot of shots Arnold is standing next to Robert Davi (6'2 or according to Rob 6'1.75) and he is slightly, max. 0.25" shorter than Davi. Of course if You take a really close look, you might notice that Arnold almost always has advantage in shoes (wears at least 1.25" heels). Depending on how honest about his height Davi was (he claimed to be even 6'3 - LOL) Arnold's peak couldn't be less than 6'1 (185 cm). One year later, Arnold is clearly at least Carl's (Wheaters - 185 cm) height in "Predator". Based on his movies in years 1984-1987 (Terminator-Predator) I can totally buy that Arnold peak was 185 or even 186 cm! But he might overestimate himself for 1-2 cm (shoes, hair, camera angle). Arnie as a solid 6'1 guy? Yeah, he could have been that guy. ;)

@Rob - could You add to his profile info/link about measurement that Arnold had in 1990 during T2 pre-production (it was 5'11.5 or 5'11.75?)? Barefoot, evening, in his 40s, he easily could have been 182 cm, I think.
Paul said on 14/Jan/18
So Rob if you have the last word I think we doesn't mean anything here in this page.. What's the point? I think our opinions are important here. The mayority of people think Arnold was never over 185'7 cm and that's the absolute highest measurement he could ever been in his life, and some others say 186 with luck. I believe 184 cm at most. Arnold is listed at 186'7 cm which I'm not the only one who thinks is far from his peak height. So he was 189 cm with shoes? Come on..
I agree HeightcrazyRed6ft you should downgrade his peak height. 187 cm is not serious 6'1 would be realistic
Editor Rob
I allow comments and added the option for people to leave a guess. Of course it is of interest. If I didn't care for reading/replying to comments, I'd have turned them off, but I welcome them.
A lot of people guess him 6ft 1, 1.25 and 6ft 1.5.
Matt6'5 said on 14/Jan/18
Question for editor Rob, do you not consider “busting a gut” Part of someone’s true height then? What is the true height then, knocking off an eighth of an inch?
Editor Rob
In the UK, at least when they were taking National health survey, the guideline was in fact to ask the participant to breathe in to stand at their tallest.

But of course Millimetres matter and busting a gut is the tallest measure of our bodies without rising on toes or one leg.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 14/Jan/18
Editor Rob
While 186cm is always a distinct possibility, it would mean his measurement had some error to it...a 1/4 inch isn't impossible to believe.

******************************************************************************************************************************************

So now with the average guess data and you sound like tending to under 6´1.5" and after years of holding the Basille measurement over everything, wouldn´t 6´1.25" be the perfect listing?
Editor Rob
Nothing is ruled out with Arnie, and 186 has always been a possibility.
Charlyman said on 12/Jan/18
Rob. I think finally his current height is clear! 180 range. 5'10.75
His peak is also clear to me 183 range.
His peak should be downgrade also. Rob you recognize he have burst a gut to reach the 6ft 1.5. A correct medical measure wouldlower the mark. A downgrade is need for 2018. 6'1 would be much better
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 12/Jan/18
Editor Rob: Remember Crazy, I also have a convention friend who met Arnie just over a year ago.

And he didn't think Arnie was under 5ft 11 when he got a photo with him.

**********************************************************************************************

Just a bit kidding around ;)

Wasn´t it the guy you said was like 176-177cm, because in the pic it looked like max 3cm?

What´s the lowest normal eveningheight you would argue for todays Arnie?
Charlyman said on 12/Jan/18
Rob 6'1.25 listing for his peak would be more realistic you did it on his current height we are waiting 2018 at least 6'1.25 last downgrade. I'm saying this at the same time I really believe he was 6'0.5 with luck in his best day
Editor Rob
While 186cm is always a distinct possibility, it would mean his measurement had some error to it...a 1/4 inch isn't impossible to believe.
Charlyman said on 12/Jan/18
Rob not sure if he is under 5'11 nowdays , but watching the pic and reading this testimonies is safe to say he is 180-180,5 cm range 5'10.75. 5'11 max. I can't give more than a 4 cm loss so the most he could ever measure is 184 everything fits:
Peak 183,5 cm (6'0.25) evening height
Nowdays: 180 (5'10.75) evening height
santgr said on 12/Jan/18
I think Franco Columbu was lying about his height too. He claimed 5ft5 while he was 5ft3 or 5ft4 on a good day. What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob
Franco at 5ft 5 seems hard to believe...I wouldn't have estimated him that tall.

Met him at the Arnold classic where I took a pic with him. I am 181.5cm morning and 179.3cm at my lowest at night and he was as told as me, or maybe 1cm taller.

Definetely no more than 182cm today.

Thx for the pic, little tilt correction :)
From this pic and regarding your more hunched posture, I can´t see Arnie at max 5´10.5" with chance of just 5´10".
IMO you would be taller if you stood as straight as him.



Rob that 0.5" you gave him as an extra - pure fear loooollll
Editor Rob: Remember Crazy, I also have a convention friend who met Arnie just over a year ago.

And he didn't think Arnie was under 5ft 11 when he got a photo with him.

Editor Rob: I think less footwear and possibly slightly lower sidewalk (although this is something hard to really tell) might account for an extra inch...he has 9-10 inches on Columbo.

@Paul seems the pics with Pearl comfirm he was just a 6-0/6-0.5 peak guy. Great picture.

Watching the photo again the guy on the right looks 176 cm 5'9.25 but he is listed 178 5'10. Arnold looks 182-183 accept this

Paul said on 11/Jan/18
The guy on the right Bill Pearl is 177 cm or 5'9.75 listed 5'10 on google.
If you watch the pic he is on a lower flat angle. Arnold again strugles with 6'0.25
How is possible anybody still think he was over 186 or 6'1? He was 6'0.5 at early hours in his best day with luck. Amazing how people can't be wrong on real height and can't accept this. A lot of testimonies and photos put Arnold at a 6 footer 6'0.5 peak in his best day early measurement

In Red Heat Arnold is standing taller and stretch and Belushi is more relax, also Arnie has shoe advantage and his hair style makes him taller to look even taller. He has less than 2 inches on Belushi please. More than 2 inches? Please watch the movie again. Arnold struggles with 183-184 cm in the movie. More than 184 cm in his peak is absurd

Today I watched Read Heat 1988. James Belushi( listed 5'11 180cm) he looks a strong 5'10 in Red Heat, Arnold has less than 2 inches on him 1'5 inch or 4 cm. Arnold was never even 6'1. Another good proof. He looks a 6 footer he always looked 6'. He has less than 2 inches on James Belushi and Arnold had boots on the movie. 183 cm max or 6'0.25

6'1 flat peak isn't impossible as he was giving that height at 19. 6'1 peak is possible if his 6'1.5 , 6'1.75 measurements were early/morning or dodgy , even that would make him 6'0.75 - 6'1 at the very minimum and that 6'0.75 might have been a tad too low. So yes 6'0 peak is stupid talk.

6'1 flat would also mean that he lost less height. I can buy 6'1 down to 5'11.25 , not 6'1.75 to 5'10 like Danimal thinks.

I think he is over a flat 5'10". Probably 5'10.25"-5'10.5" range today.
Danimal 5'9 3/4 said on 7/Jan/18
Rob, you have Eddie Hall listed at 6'1.5" (many believe he's 6'1" flat). Here he is with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold is not 5'11.5". I'm sorry but that is at least 2.5"-3" height difference:

What's crazy is that a PRIME Arnold would have been the same height as Eddie LEGIT. If Arnold stood next to his younger self, that is how he'd compare to him. That is how much height Arnold has lost.
Editor Rob: today I think the 11.25 is what he can still measure.

_____________________________________________________________________

Yeah he gave his height as 1,85m in germany when he started. 6´1" would be a fair listing as I think he would dip below like 2-3/8 peak evening.
Today he looks less than 5´11", I wouldn´t go higher than 5´10.75" eveningheight.
so he lost about 2"-2.25"

6´1.75"-5´10" is over the line in both directions - nearly 4" noway

Waxer said on 5/Jan/18
Absolutely agree he was pushing 6' I don't see never more than 183 cm in his peak and seen thousands of photos and compare him with legut 6'2 guys. 6'1 is more than 185'4 cm. He was not even 184 cm, maybe at morning. Arnold was the best example of a 6 footer strong 6 footer if you want

He was 6ft pushing it max if u think any higher your deluded every 6,2 guy Back then was aleast 2 inches or more taller

@CDS = yes all the measures don't give always exactly the same results imo.For example= i personnally practice bodybuilding and my buttocks are very rounded,and so if i measure myself back to a wall i must a little bit " break" my back to be absolutely stuck in the wall and so my posture will be not very good and i will lose probably a little height when i will read the height gauge.

@CDS I don't know if young Jeff was a full 6"1' in the middle of the day and the real difference between Jeff and Arnold(not a lot imo),i think young Arnold was more around 6"0' or maybe 6"0.5' in the middle of the day,and 6"1.5' seem to me more like a little bit rounded up value just after a very good nap.But ...who's know.See also my comment/video on 22 Déc 2017 and the comment/picture of HeightCrazyRed6ft on 24 dec 2017 .Interesting imo because Big Rob has seen Robert Englund and he's in a picture with him at Robert 's page.I personnally think Robert could be a weak 5"9'(around 5"9')at his peak but...(which would give around 6"0' or a strong 6"0'(6"0.5'?) too for Arnold by considering the shoes)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/18
Rob, is it at all believable that he may also have measured at 6ft1¾?


6ft2 was always most likely a round up but I could also buy that he did get that maybe 1 hour or so out of bed
Editor Rob: earlier in the day with bust a gut he may well have.

Some people surprise you when measuring, sometimes they are a little taller/shorter than they expect, or even you may think.

Peak 6' or just over 6' and today 5'10.5 or 179 cm. He never looked even 6'1 in his prime. I think people have a wrong concept about height


Well, I agree with you on that last sentence. :P
CDS said on 4/Jan/18
@Pierre! Thank you! I saw the shot you mentioned -- full-body, and Bridges edged Arnie out by an inch at best, and had shoes on, and Arnie was barefooted; makes a BIG difference. So I am just about now a convert to yes, Arnie could have indeed been measured 6'1.5" barefoot in the '70s. My only question now for that email -- was it a measurement taken up against a wall -OR- stadiometer, free-standing...LOL Would make about 1/2 inch difference...

Doc said on 2/Jan/18
Hi everybody yes its me im back again! I would say as I have pribably stated before I think he is now 178.5cm because the average head height of a man with a medium to large manly head is roughly 24cm / 9 1/4 inches and then deduct is 3.25cm shoes with extra lift you get 178.5cm by dividing his head unit into the kength of his body using ratio scales and a calculator! In his hey day is height was approx 182cm slightly under 6ft!

The Shredder said on 2/Jan/18
Yea he seems about this nowadays , really no taller. I question his peak , I think he was more a flat 6'1er and his measurements were dodgy. He was giving 6'1 at age 19. I really don't think he lost over 2 inches.

@Pierre I remember a newspaper interview with Robert in the early 90s after he got the role and he said Im 5.11" and slim ,Arnie is about an 1" taller but way much more wider but I can fight him easy in the movie. Question is was he really 5-11" to start with. Maybe a strong 5-10" guy in truth.

Click Here = Robert Patrick next to Rob = By the scale only his very straight hairs are 5"11'.Look at the postures=Rob slouch more than Robert imo.His head tilt a little bit more.So the scale is low imo.And Robert had a little bit advantageous shoes....Rob can be sometimes a little bit generous which is natural=It's very very hard to gauge a guy standing a short time next to you with 1 inch precision.Me too when i try to guess a height of friends standing next to me(or the contrary) i make mistakes and my friends too.

I think one big factor is that people have a larger-than-life expectation of Arnold and when they meet him and he is "only" 6 feet tall they are underwhelmed! My opinion is that he was maybe 6 feet and a 1/2 inch as a young man and now about 5' 11"

Arnoldlfan4ever said on 29/Dec/17
More evidence Arnold was a strong 6 footer and a great example of a real 6 footer: 184 cm at morning. I do not really see Arnold never over 6'0.25/0.5 in his prime. Just said I'm his biggest fan here and seen all his movies and hundreds of pictures. I also love bodybuilding and in the 70's was max 183.5 cm

Fascinating, hard to figure out what is going on.
We have Robert Patrick pictured next to Rob, and clearly standing at 5'11".
You won't find a picture where Arnold does not look 2 inches taller than Patrick.
But also, 6'2" James Cameron seems to tower over Arnold. Maybe Cameron is listed too short? Arnold looks a height between the two of them.
Here's a 1994 appearance with 6'1.5" Letterman, there are a couple others. Arnold's in regular dress shoes. They look the same.

Maybe James Cameron 6'3". Arnold 6'1" (prime), and Robert Patrick 5'11"

I'm his biggest fan and I've always been since I was a kid. Also I'm bodybuilding lover and watched all his movies. As a good height gessr too I'm pretty convinced he was the best example of a real 183 cm man / 6'0.25 and maybe 0.5 at morning in his prime. The thing here is: he is the kind of man always trying to be the the best, the strongest, number 1, and he has exaggearete and trying to win always and be the best.
I love Arnold but I can tell you he was 183 cm 184 at morning in his prime. Today he is 179.5 cm 180 (weak 5'11 guy)
186-187 cm is a big hoax ( hollywood= lie)
Michael Blanchard said on 26/Dec/17
Bush senior was a very solid 6'2, lets say 189 cm, Arnold was a very solid 6'1, never reaching full 6'2, at 186 187. Here's their difference in height explained.

hambubger said on 25/Dec/17
The Vince Basile comments highlight how silly it is to nail yourself down to a feet and inches height alone when you are almost an inch shorter when you go to bed from when you wake up. If he'd measured in the morning he'd have got a very different measurement to both lunchtime and evening. This also makes half inches silly. Much better to go with strong, solid and weak. Peak Arnold was a solid 6'1", morning 187, night 185. Could also have been a weak 6'1" (morning 186, night 184) but no shorter.
Albert said on 25/Dec/17

Yep I also agree. Rob is right. Starting to believe it.. The reason was stretching like a mofo to get that 6ft1.5 measurement:

santgr said on 25/Dec/17
@Pierre Yeah no problem I get what you are trying to say. I fully agree with Rob on Arnold's peak height. He cleared out the full 6ft1 with ease and maybe he was stretching like a mofo to get that 6ft1.5 measurement when Vince measured him that day.

Rob, what do you think? Robert Englund in flat shoes 5´10.25", Arnie clearly not 3.25" taller barefoot, 2.5 maybe.
6´0.75"-6´1" flat for peak Arnie. Maybe measured at 6´1 3/8" while busting a gut and 1-2/8" extra from a not so accurate device?

btw I don´t think Jeff was peak 6´1.5" too, he hasn´t 4" on Englund in the vid, only 3-3.25"
Editor Rob: he didn't seem like he'd be 6ft 1 with Englund, though I can't say whether Arnie was at his tallest, or could stretch up.
Pierre said on 24/Dec/17
@Santgr(comment 17 Dec on the pictures Pierre 16 Dec) =i agree we can not see the floor and the shoes, imo there is a little probability Ralf Moeller was in cow boy boots,the turf in the picture seem to be regular even if we can not see all the turf,and in the other picture the two other actors are looking about their respective height one to another which can make me think the floor is regular and the shoes are the same.Let's say there is some coincidences.

E:185-186
Editor Rob: can't see how he'd be under E.
miko said on 24/Dec/17
6'0.75/6'1 prime. Never ever looked a full 6'2.

Today his height is in the 5'11 range but its harder to pinpoint as he can look anywhere from 5'10.5 to 5'11.5 in any given photo. He has even looked 5'10 flat on occasion in the last year but I don't think he's that short surely.

Some on here think Stallone was 5'8/9 peak so find a picture of him with 5/6 inches on Stallone. They don't exist. The most I've ever seen was him having around 4 inches on him when they were both in normal footwear in the late 70's/early 80's.

I don't think Arnold has ever used lifts, only cowboy boots occasionally IMO.

I can't really see a 6'1.5 peak Arnold. Is a joke
Look at him guys. He maybe was 6' in his prime. Let's add a quarter inch over 6' if you want. 6'range is more realistic. 183 cm range. Any mark over is a hoax. I have seen a lot of pictures of him and all his movies. I'm sure in a relax measurement at the nurse he would be very far from that 6'1.5 mark. Lucky if he could hit 6'0.25
Watch him here. Even in some clips and photos sometimes looked 5'11

Editor Rob: I will say Arnie may well have burst a gut to reach the 6ft 1.5 that he was measured, so I understand an estimate of 6ft 1.25 for him

I know it's been mentioned to death, about Arnie looking a tad shorter than Jeff Bridges in the film from the '70s, "Stay Hungry", and it was mentioned Arnie was in barefeet, but Bridges was in shoes. I went back and watched that movie again recently but couldn't find definitive proof. Does anyone have a FULL-BODY shot of Bridges looking taller than Arnie in that movie, where you can see Bridges has shoes on and Arnie is in barefeet? I've only seen the one picture of Arnie standing up and Bridges laying on the weightlifting bench. And the only shots of the 2 of them standing next to each other (again, where Bridges looks around an inch taller), I can't see their feet. If someone were to produce a FULL-BODY shot where you can make out their footwear (or lack thereof), and the 2 of them standing, I would be much more convinced of that 6'1.5" barefoot peak height measurement...

That's right, 6'0" at his peak. Elliot Gould was listed as 6'2, there's a chance he might be 6'2.5. The more reason to believe Arnie was under 6'1. He looked like 3" shorter than Elliot
Editor Rob: arnold takes his shoes off and has bodybuilder hunch, like he's been pumping iron to look as big as possible for his scene.

She also said she had "fun" with Arnie, Sly on the other side was "like a rabbit"

The heightchart pic clearly proves that at this point she was only 6ft in footwear.

Real Cavill said on 17/Dec/17
6'0.5" in his prime.

@LordHumongous.....Muscle does make people appear shorter from a distance, but that's not an issue for someone as famous as Arnold. We have zillions of pics of him with other people. Zillions of people have met him and he's done bodybuilding barefoot next to other guys. His height can be accurately guessed with little error. The muscle illusion is only a problem when you don't have enough reference points and you have to eyeball it.

Also it is not common at all for people to lose 2.5 inches by the time they are 70 unless they have vertebrae problems. Reading I have done says about 2" by age 80 and 1" by age 70. A lot of that is due to fallen arches, bone density problems, etc. and not joint compression. Arnold looks upright to me.

With 6ft5 listed on this site Sven-Ole Thorsen. Arnold was still in his peak height here but he is leaning a bit backwards for the posing.

Here's a link to some of what Vince said. You'll see he was no Arnold fan. But he was fairly certain of the big man's height.

Vince Basile

When I measured Arnold's height in January 1968 he was 1/2 inch shorter than the 6-2 claimed. Paul Graham and Bob Bruce were also 1/2 inch shorter than claimed.

I was 5-9.5 as claimed.

Many bodybuilders exaggerate height, weight, measurements, strength, and IQ! Some claim to be younger than they actually are. Albert Beckles did the opposite.

This is what Vince Basile posted at the bodybuilding site Getbig on a topic about bodybuilders lying about their heights and weights. He has no love for Arnold and I believe the 6'1.5 measurement
Jim Hopper said on 14/Dec/17
If Arnie was 6-2" George Bush Snr was 6-4" at 66 years old. Go google them together. Arnie was just over 6-0" prime. Now just under 5-11"
Junior31 said on 13/Dec/17
Rob how do you still have him at 5'11.5. He's 5'10 and change these days at best
Editor Rob: you wouldn't like Arnie when he's angry...
LordHumongous said on 13/Dec/17
I think he was 6 1.5" at his peak but he just rounded it off to 6'2 as it sounds better. Also his muscle bulk made him look shorter than his actual height so that's where all the confusion and conflicting views are.

Looks a solid 5'11 now and with those heels a 6 footer.
Barry Fl said on 13/Dec/17
That's at least three of us here now who say we've met Arnold in recent years and put him at between 5'11 and 6. Of course you've only got our word for it, but it's got to better than the word of the many who've never even seen him in real life.

@Kane
I found the segment you mentioned.
Click Here
Arnold looks around 6'1range age 52. I don't get the 6' prime either. hehe
Mister lennon said on 11/Dec/17
Bridges was a solid 6'1 guy at peak. Only compare his heigt with other 6'1-6'2 guys.
Kane said on 10/Dec/17
Look up the WWF segment where we see Arnold face to face with Vince, Austin, and Rock. Anything below 6’ prime is a LIE.
sid said on 10/Dec/17
I'll assure you Arnold isnt 6'2 he's 6'1 but thats in his prime. He's probably shorter now.
jervis said on 10/Dec/17
Pierre there is know absolute proof that Bridges was 6ft1,or any absolute proof of any other of the celeb's heights here,you just take a guess and decide weather to believe them when they say what height they are.

Michael Blanchard said on 8/Dec/17
hahaha you are so funny saying he is 182 today. lol He was not even 184 in his peak he maybe was 183 cm and today of course not ven 180 cm but 179 cm
Pierre said on 9/Dec/17
where are the absolute proofs Jeff Bridges was really a full 6"1'
Cole said on 9/Dec/17
By the way school to the right Duncan is dressed has the vampire
Heightlover said on 9/Dec/17
he was 183 cm at most 6ft'25 peak height
Dude said on 8/Dec/17
He's the same height or slightly shorter than Jeff Bridges in Stay Hungry
Michael Blanchard said on 8/Dec/17
Obviously 186-187 at his peak and around 182 today
Cole said on 8/Dec/17
Click Here Arnold with Duncan Regehr who’s listed at 6,3 Duncan ain’t standing straight I would say if he was he would have 3 inches or a little more
jervis said on 8/Dec/17
The way her right foot is raised still looks a bit odd too me Pierre,but maybe its just a bad photo.I believe Arnold was around 6ft.5. and 6ft1 peak,because he looked a bit shorter than 6ft1 Jeff bridges .Bridges had very flat shoes on Arnold was bare foot and Bridges looked about 1 inch taller,Bridges footwear was about half an inch tick.
Jim Hopper said on 8/Dec/17
Paul L Smith was a 6-4". Arnie here looks 6-0 ish next to him. 6-2" no chance ever. Click Here
Mister lennon said on 8/Dec/17
He was a solid 6'1 guy.
186 minimum.
Brad said on 7/Dec/17
I met him in 2014 and I'd say 5'11.5 to 6 foot even. I'm 5'10 and he was only a little taller than me.
Heightlover said on 7/Dec/17
I'm tired.. He never was over 6ft-0'25. He was somewhere 182'5 - 183'5 cm in his peak today 179 cm
Pierre said on 7/Dec/17
@jervis= Click Here = here we can more see the floor
Pierre said on 7/Dec/17
@jervis =Or her right foot in the joint of the floor give the impression the floor is advantageous for her
Barry Fl said on 7/Dec/17
jervis said on 6/Dec/17
Pierre, that black and white pic of Brigitte and Arnold is slightly misleading,if you look at her right foot you can see its raised it looks to me that she and the others in the pic are on higher ground than Arnold.

That would make a certain sense - Brigitte was the star of the show and Arnold's role was only a glorified cameo. It would be natural for the filmmakers and still photographers to play up the Amazonian stature of their new discovery and not allow Arnold to steal *too* much of the limelight. There are pictures of Arnold and Brigitte when they were promoting the movie and just hanging out together where he does look a few inches taller.
Boba Fett said on 6/Dec/17
We'll most likely never know how tall peak Arnold was for definite, but I think it's safe to assume he was between 6 feet tall and 6'1" range.
Slimeball said on 6/Dec/17
Arnold was 6.1 at peak, at most 186 cm. We have pictures from the 80s proving he was 185-186 and there is no picture where he looks 6.2.
In early 2000s he looked 6 feet, especially with Tony blair.

Normal heightloss for a 70 year old man is 3 cm accoridng to science.
So the most accurate guees based on that and photo evidence is that he is 182 cm, at least 181 cm.

I was at an event recently were i was 6 meters away arnold when he stood on stage. He looked kinda wide and about 5.11-6 feet. It was the moment of my lifetime to se arnold in real life, i just sat and smiled.
Barry Fl said on 6/Dec/17
I think we can all make up our own minds on Arnold's height and allow Rob to do the same. People who've never met Arnold really should not be saying "for certain" what his real height is to the nearest quarter centimeter.
jervis said on 6/Dec/17
Pierre, that black and white pic of Brigitte and Arnold is slightly misleading,if you look at her right foot you can see its raised it looks to me that she and the others in the pic are on higher ground than Arnold.

Houss nope just 5,11 how tall are u houss
Heightlover said on 5/Dec/17
Rob I'd really like you met him in his prime. You would guess his height at 6ft tops. Weird you have Arnold at 6'1.5. he must be downgrade unfair height
Kurtz said on 5/Dec/17
Brigitte Nielsen was 5 11 at her prime.
Mister lennon said on 5/Dec/17
Arnold was solid 6'1 peak.
Stop the silly downgrade.
Scoobydoo said on 5/Dec/17
we have evident proofs that arnold was not taller than 6'1 in peak.

The question is; how tall is Arnold today?? strong 180 cm? 181cm? 182cm? very difficult to guess this.
Barry Fl said on 5/Dec/17
Danimal's 'comparison' pic is an interesting one, to say the least. Granted, Arnold isn't exactly posing in the 'Aftermath' screenshot, but he still hasn't kept his shape in the way that some bodybuilders his age have (Sly and Lou Ferrigno as more noticeable examples). His midsection has been very thick for a number of years (even when he was in T3, his nude scene was mostly shot from the chest up). For someone who has been in such phenomenal shape for most of his life, and prides himself on challenge and discipline, it's quite a surprise. He's not exactly an average 70 year old, but I think most people would expect a lot better.
Houss said on 5/Dec/17
@Cole I tough you are taller
Cole said on 5/Dec/17
Arnold was never ever 6,2 he was pushing 6ft in he’s prime with luck now he is 5,10
THE REAL ANNONYMOUS said on 4/Dec/17
Danimal.... Thats a terrible pic of Arnold
He actually has been looking much better latley
Jim Hopper said on 4/Dec/17
@Danimal I doubt Brigitte was ever 6-1"
Cole said on 4/Dec/17
Jake 6.1 to 5,10 that’s a big height lose

Stop misinform you don't have idea what you saying. She maybe was a weak 6 footer. She claimed herself to be 5'11.5 and 6 foot. Why you say 6'1? Maybe you want to excuse Arnold, but the truth is they were same height. Again Arnold was 6 foot in his peak never over
Cole said on 4/Dec/17
Houss 5.11
grizz said on 4/Dec/17
Lol, Nielsen was never 6'1 to start with. She was 182-183 (measured 182 by Guiness)
Pierre said on 4/Dec/17
Click Here = Mugshot Brigitte Nielsen = around 6"0' in shoes here.
Click Here =Arnold and brigitte = i would say around the same height, Arnold look a little more downward with his head but Brigitte is in relax posture(legs pelvis)
anyonmious said on 3/Dec/17
he is 5'11" max nowadays. He needs another downsize.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/17
His claim is very arrogant "people really LOOK UP TO ME"
Lambo said on 3/Dec/17
No way Arnold was ever 6'2" or even close. You've only got to look at him with Jeff Bridges in Stay Hungry, as others have said. Here's a pic of him right next to 6'0.5" listed Jeff Bridges. Arnold was 29 years old so prime height. Jeff is in shoes and Arnold isn't so let's assume that makes Jeff 6'1". There is at least 2 inches between them. Arnold was never more than 5'11".

Cole said on 3/Dec/17
Click Here: With Chuck Norris who is 5,8 Arnold looks about 40 odd Looks 5,11 tops
Jake said on 3/Dec/17
Arnold was definitely at least 6’1 peak. All of the heavy squatting and deadlifting he did during his competitive bodybuilding days probably contributed to his early height loss. If you read any of his bodybuilding books he talks about sqatting 500lbs and deadlifting 600lbs with pics to back it up. The discs in his spine have endured far more compression that the average person. We know that he has had at least one knee surgery, a hip surgery, a broken femur from a skiing accident when he was governor. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a vertebrae fusion surgery as well. If you look at his posture in any of his bodybuilding pics versus recent pics his whole body now looks compressed and out of proportion.
Cole said on 3/Dec/17
Ok cool still in ok shape for 70

Maybe in his bodybuiding days he was 6ft.'25 with luck. He never looked over 6ft.
Cole said on 30/Nov/17
Mr6footer u are spot on with he's height mate
santgr said on 30/Nov/17
Well I don't know if Arnold was wearing lifts or high heeled boots in that Commando scene with Robert Lee Minor but one thing is for sure Robert Lee Minor was a real 6ft2 minimum maybe more likely a 6ft2.5 or 6ft3. How do I know that? Look his arms length when they both enter the airplane. These arms are definately not of a 6 foot guy or shorter.
Mr6footer said on 29/Nov/17
HonestSlovene said on 28/Nov/17
He is under 180 cm today maybe at morning he is 180. You should read more info about it instead something you dont know.. And he was not even 184 cm peak He was 183 max
HonestSlovene said on 28/Nov/17
@Mr6footer Are you some sort of conspiracy theorist? Because I can't really take you seriously with these sorts of statements.
HonestSlovene said on 28/Nov/17
186 cm peak 181-182 cm now. Lost slightly more than the average man his age (3 cm) due to roiding.
jervis said on 28/Nov/17
Rob what is your opinion on the Lee Minor clip?,remember this Guy is listed as 6ft2,and looks to have a least 3 inches on Arnold,making him look in the 5ft11 range just as Kevin Sorbo said he was.
Editor Rob: he certainly could make Arnold look under 6ft in their brief encounter.
Mr6footer said on 27/Nov/17
Arnold has always believed everyone he was taller. Even in this site Rob can't believe he was really a 6 footer
Jim Hopper said on 26/Nov/17
Not over 6-1 prime. Imo a solid guess from pictures and videos of him he was 6-0.5 prime. Now 5-11" max
Mr6footer said on 26/Nov/17
he always looked 5ft11'5-6ft I say he was 6 ft in his prime
Cole said on 25/Nov/17
Movieguy he was never ever 6,2 pushing 6ft now 5,10 max
Criss said on 25/Nov/17
Rob, I haven't seen you commenting on the pictures of Arnold with James Cameron and Bush senior. The 6 ft 1.5 measurements cant stand. There is at about 1 inch between them.
I'm curious what you think about
Editor Rob: unfortunately I can only spend a certain amount of time replying each day.
Cole said on 25/Nov/17
5,10 today pushing 6ft in he's prime
movieguy said on 25/Nov/17
Some people say Arnie's 6'2'' or was when young, others 5'10''. Wider than average range for a celeb. Arnie had done extreme activity for many years and I suppose this could lead to height loss in later life as many have commented.
Mr6footer said on 24/Nov/17
abcd said on 24/Nov/17
i think 180 cm nowadays, weak 185 cm peak

hahahah saying he shrunk 5 cm? funny...He maybe lost 2-3 cm sounds more realistic. 182 cm peak , 179 cm nowdays

Johan said on 23/Nov/17
You guys ever read that interview with Dick Tyler back in 1969?

Arnie said that he was 6 foot 1 inch as a young guy when he started working out and still the same height . Its in print in the book 'West Coast Bodybuilding Scene - The Golden era'. I will see if I can get a copy from amazon.
MJKoP said on 23/Nov/17
He only looks short because the shot was snapped from an insanely high angle. You get on a high enough ladder and you could've made Manute Bol look stumpy and compressed. ;)
