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.

Juby,

The angles in that photo are insane, cannot see who is taller there. C'mon now.

@Rising= a measure written on a paper is only a measure written on a paper
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Aug/18
@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:

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
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Aug/18
As we all know, Vince Basille claimed to measure Arnold at 6'1.5" in the evening back in 1969. 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.
Editor Rob
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.
Hijoputamus said on 8/Aug/18
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 6ft...in “shoes” blink blink 😉
Pierre said on 8/Aug/18
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.

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.

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.

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

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 etc.to make their already considerable height even more impressive
Truth even for such trivial thing as height is rarely valued in the today's world.

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.

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.

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
Zimi said on 24/Jul/18
In a photo posted to Instagram he didn’t look any taller than his daughter and she said she was ‘5’11 or 5’10.75 to be exact’ in the comments of the photo
santgr said on 24/Jul/18
Rob do you believe he might have been 186cm during the day in his prime? 187cm sounds too tall for him sometimes looking at some photos. Maybe he was somewhere in the middle like 186.5cm?
Editor Rob
Many would estimate him as 186cm peak, I think far fewer would give him 188cm.
Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Jul/18
He's still easily taller than 178. Here's Arnold this year with 5'11" Leonardo DiCaprio: Click Here
Looks about 181 cm in late 2017 if his son Patrick is 184 cm: Click Here
Rob lists clearly Til Schweiger 177 cm and Arnold is much more than 1 cm taller: Click Here Click Here
Rob lists Emmanuel Macron 5'8" and you can see a short video of Arnold with him last year: Click Here You can see them posing side by side at the 50 second mark and Arnold looks about 3" taller. I'm not sure if Macron is 5'8", but he's wearing elevator shoes there: Click Here There are a few more examples I could post from 2017 or 2018, but this should suffice for now. Arnold doesn't look to have lost much more height since his return to movies.

Rob what's the lowest peak you guess and what height you think he hit before bed in his peak
Editor Rob
6ft 1 peak would be lowest I'd go.
Tristan3D said on 19/Jul/18
Hm, I am 6'4 (a bit more out of bed, but I might shrink down to that during the day) and I stood right next to him in 2012 at the Frankfurt Books Fair (in Germany) during his presentation of his "Total Recall" Bio (at which he was preseting it in almost perfect high german - without his usual austrian accent. I wonderered back then: "Is there anything this guy wouldn't want to improve on?", because I knew he must have practiced high german all evening prior to the event). I wasn't exactly towering over him, but I was considerably taller than he was (I wore sneakers and he wore business shoes with somewhat large heels). So, I don't know about his peak (It's said to be 6ft 1.5in), but nowadays I assume him in the lower 5'11 range - if not a 5ft 10.75in over the course of the day.

Except in North of Europ beteween 5'9 5'10 you are considereded average and below 5'9 a little short.
In the north of Europe below 5'11 you are below average. In general you start considered being tall when you are 178 cm barefoot 178 and over this mark is tallish. But if you go to the north of Europe you need to be 182 barefoot and over to start being considered tallish
Glisten173cm said on 18/Jul/18
Barry Fl said on 16/Jul/18
You start to be tallish when you are barefoot a legit 5'10.25 man. I guess over 5'10.25 starts to be tallish
Beteween 5'9 5'10 you are considereded average below 5'9 a little short. Of course in north Europe 5'9 is short and 5'10 a little too.

Goran Pavlovic said on 13/Jul/18
Can someone tell me wht height is considered as "tall"? Could it be 185cm too?

That depends who you're talking to! A 5'10 guy will consider 5'10 tall. A 6'1 guy will consider 5'10 short! I guess there's no official line in the sand, so I'd just say anything clearly above the average height could be classed as 'tall'.
santgr said on 16/Jul/18
@Goran Pavlovic

As a 6ft0.5 guy myself I can assure you that my height is not considered tall nowadays. Just above average. Legit tall begins at 6ft2 maybe even 6ft2.5 If we were talking about 30 years ago 6ft would be legit tall.
Kurtz said on 14/Jul/18
Well we are discussing even if the Rock is only 6 1 or if 6 2 and here people still blatering on 6 2 peak for Arnold? Lol.

Barry Fl said on 12/Jul/18
Recently I was watching some interviews/chat show appearances with Arnold from around 1991. I know it's been mentioned here before but it really struck me how his proportions have changed over the years. Back then his torso, and especially his legs, looked so much longer - and his head comparatively smaller. Compare that with recent years where his body looks much more squat, his legs shorter, and his head larger. He definitely seems more compressed these days. Inches have been lost. I know he's had numerous injuries and operations - broken legs, and wasn't there an hip or knee replacement (or both?).
gorenbal said on 11/Jul/18
The 6'2 claim on the video is hilarious. Obviously he is adding nearly 2 inches to his height. He was nearly 6'1 at most. You can see his proportions do not belong to a 6'2 guy. Btw he never looked over 185 to me which is not even 6'1 . 6'1 = 185,47 cm. Lucky if he can hit 185 in the 70's

@Heighty= compare Arnold to Wilt Chamberlain isn't a good proof because he's 7"1',and the comparisons cannot be very precise.Compare Arnold to Lou Ferrigno=good old pictures in web.Eventually compare Lou to guys like Dick Durock or Ralf Moeller listed 6"5.5 or 6"6'...And do the maths

@jmnedelski

Pictures can't be "a solid evidence", they just can't! Unless picture shows us person standing straight next to the wall with the straight horizontal lines, or person next to the measuring tape. Even if You met Arnold You CAN'T be sure how tall he is. For an example, I am 177cm (177.3-177.5cm standing very straight next to the wall) and my younger brother is 179 cm, and once I measured him at 180 cm (exactly 5'11") and You know what - You can't tell that. I have better posture, I never hunch while I'am walking, so most of the time we look equal or maybe even I look taller than him - with almost 1 inch difference between us! Arnold is 71 years old, he has terrible posture and he can't stand fully straight most of the time. He can be +5'11" and look less than 5'10" on every photo.
heighty said on 9/Jul/18
A really good picture of a young Arnold next to Wilt Chamberlain (7'1"):
Click Here

Wilt is barefoot and standing completely straight. His 7'1" height is well documented and back then they measured NBA players barefoot. Arnold looks to be wearing flat slippers and is slightly hunched. It's almost like they were about to compare heights. I used an app to measure relative lengths and if Wilt Chamberlain is 7'1", Arnold is somewhere between 6'1" and a little over 6'2" depending on how much height I think he would gain if he stood straighter. The incline of the ground doesn't matter, I'm just measuring them head to toe. Arnold might be a tiny bit further from the camera than Wilt so that would make him appear shorter.

So his alleged measurements of 6'1.5" or 6'1.75" are accurate. That could be rounded to a morning height of 6'2".

I used to think 6'1" but now I'm convinced Arnold was 6'2". I do wonder if the heavy weightlifting compressed his spine more than normal, which caused his height to fluctuate.

And that's assuming the ground is flat, not favoring either one of them.

From my estimation, 6'1.5" is about right. So his morning height could be rounded to 6'2".

Rob: Met him this year at Gold's gym. A friend invited me to train there.. what was my luck? To my surprise I met Arnold but I couln't take a pic with him. He was so busy but I was face to face. To Danimal 5'9 3/4": he is not 5'10 trust me. I understand he can look 5'10 at times because he slouches and when he is training more. He is over 5'10 but not sure if he is 5'11. I'm 5'9.5 and he was taller than me by an inch I guess. I think if he stands correctly he hit nearly 5'11. Rob he is not 5'11.25 I'm sure. He is 5'11 max and I vote for 5'10.75. In his peak was 6'0.75 a tall guy sure

@Danimal: I know you have nothing against Arnold and he has lost a lot of height for his age, but he still looks taller to me.

2018 Jay Leno's Garage video: Click Here (Go to 56 seconds and you can see their entire bodies from what looks like a pretty straight angle)
Still taken from that video: Click Here I don't know if Leno has a footwear advantage, but taking that aside for a moment and assuming Leno is now more 5'10" flat rather than the 5'10.5" Rob lists him, I'd still guess Arnold more 5'11" range than 5'10" there

1) Hi Juby, well, I have met Najib Razak, shake hand with him and he is the same height as I am which is 1.78 meter. Look at Picture 3, they all standing straight together. Look at how straight Arnold and Najib are standing. Almost the same height as Najib Razak. Picture 1 is just to compare how 1.78 meter against 1.88 meter tall. Anyway, just like Alexalexan whom comment before you said, he is 70, respect him no matter how tall he is. Thank you.

2)Hi Rob, what do you think about my "solid evidence"?

"A solid evidence" - ha ha, good one :D The picture of someone who might be some tall next to Arnold who is not standing straight on the picture 2. XD
Alexalexan said on 5/Jul/18
Arnold is a tall guy and still today at 70. Respect him. Long time arguing his height. He is 70 respect the Man. We know he is about 180 today. 180 range or 79 range doesnt matter he is tall and he was tall. He was about 185. End of Story
jmnedelski said on 3/Jul/18
I have found a solid evidence of Arnold is just around 1.8 meter only. Have a look at Picture 1 where Najib Razak meeting with Justin Treudou. Justin is 1.88 meter. Najib Razak is 1.78 meter. Now, let's have a look at Picture 2 where Arnold meeting with Najib Razak. The same height, maybe 2cm or 3cm taller, if Arnold not wearing any lifts, if he does, maybe less than 1.8 meter... maybe....

So, Arnold is not above 1.8 meter. Maybe....

I have found a solid evidence of Arnold is around 1.8 meter only. Have a look at Picture 1 where Najib Razak meeting with Justin Treudou. Justin is 1.88 meter. Najib Razak is 1.78 meter. Now, let's have a look at Picture 2 where Arnold meeting with Najib Razak. The same height, maybe 2cm or 4cm taller, maybe.

So, Arnold is not above 1.8 meter. Maybe....

Dukecrund said on 28/Jun/18
for all I've seen and read and listened people who met him is fair to say he is 5'11 today and peak 6'0.5. He is my favorite actor and I'm his fan number 1 too. Basing my guess and I think I'm good on heights I guess him as a 6'0.5 in his youth. What happened when a man is legit 6'0.5? Answer: He can pass as a 6'1 minimum because people always lie on heights and Arnold always had a good posture. In movies he looked very straight like a militar look. Maybe he wore advantage in some movies and some people thought he was over 6'1, but when you see movies when he is clearly relax or with other legit 6'1 people you can see he was a strong 6 footer, beteween 6' and 6'1. Today 100% he is 5'11 max. Some few say he is 5'10 but just because sometimes he is relax on his body and he is 70! Nowdays for a measurement he hit 5'11. or 180'0 cm (5'10.8)

Arnold's today height 5ft 11 ½ (182cm)-6ft (183cm).
Juby said on 28/Jun/18
In the pix of mankoo Arnold looks slightly taller, not only due to the shoulder's level, but also look at the black background which is the straight line just behind them. Of course, we can't see they footwear and it is weird angle, but in my opinion if the guy on the picture is 180-181 cm, than Arnold is at least the same height.

@Christian 6'5 3/8"

We're all (well, almost all) basing on pictures/videos of him. :P And this is the main reason of this ongoing argue about his height. In fact, You can find the photos of Arnold looking like 6 foot 1.75 inch guy (official height) as well as max. 6 foot in his prime! Today he appears in 5 foot 10 - 6 foot range. It's hard to say which version is closer to the true, because we're basing just on pictures, which can lie to us.

My opinion right now:

> Peak = 6 foot 1 inch max. (as he claimed in 1969, his height from Guinness Record List from 1969, and from competition in 1969, later he was overestimated)

> Now = 5 foot 11 inches (in movies and at the red carpets he appears even shorter, sometimes barely 5'10", but when he's standing real straight - it's hard for him being 70 years old - he looks solid 5'11", maybe even a little more), so Rob's guess if fine, I can agree with 5'11.25".

A 2018 Arnold is under 5'11". You must be basing his estimate off pics that were like 10-15 years ago.
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Jun/18
The photo of Arnie and Sly is 5 or 6 years old and Arnold was still at least 5'11.5" back in 2012, imo while Sly was at or very near his peak height of a weak 5'9" or 174.5 to 175 cm. There are many full pics and videos of the two during the Expendables films, but here's a more recent comparison of the two from the Terminator Genisys premiere in 2015 and Sly looked his current by then. Arnold may have also been his current height unless someone can show evidence he's lost more height in the 3 years since.

Full photos: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Video: Click Here

I think the first photo shows the difference between the two most accurately along with the video while the second photo favors Sly a bit and the third favors Arnie a bit, but there being a near 3" difference or maybe 7 to 7.5 cm difference looks about right. Their shoes look pretty close as far as heels, but Arnold actually has a thicker sole overall as you can see comparing the front of their shoes. I never thought I'd live to see Arnie with a possible footwear advantage over Sly! Sly is still 5'8" minimum, but 5'8.5" max these days, which is probably why Rob lists him at a logical 5'8.25". I think he still looks much more 174 cm without lifts, but you always have to consider he might looking a bit taller than he is.

With J.K. Simmons at the Germany premiere: Click Here
Full photos: Click Here Click Here

Those 2 full photos show Arnold's cowboy-type boots give him perhaps 1 cm footwear advantage, but you can see Simmons going up on one foot slightly and he does it much more blatantly here: Click Here That's why we should take the first pic where Arnie looks only an inch or so taller than Simmons with a grain of salt. Other than that, he looks anywhere from 1.5" to 2" taller and it's possible Simmons gains around half an inch or 1 cm going up on one foot, in which case he'd cancel out Arnold's footwear advantage. Simmons is probably a weak 5'10" nowadays or 177-178 cm and if all things are equal in the full pics then Arnold would be 4-5 cm taller, but if Simmons isn't on his toes in the other pic then Arnie is looking 3 cm taller max, which would be 2 cm when his cowboy boots are factored in.

In Arnie's case, these comparisons still make me think he's 5'11" minimum and 5'11.5" max. As I said, I understand even the weaker 180 cm guesses, but I personally think he'd look shorter than he does with bad posture if that were the case. Generally still looks a solid 5'11" to me. And it's to be expected that Arnold would be shorter than legit 6'2" men like James Cameron because he even admitted he was a fraction under 6'2", but he was also consistently taller than flat 6'1" guys like Carl Weathers, Tom Arnold and others so I'd still guess 186 cm for him, maybe 187 range.

Darkpower72= but take in consideration that in the 70s, even a solid 6"0' guy was very tall in America,and bodybuilders are generally not very tall(and sometimes a little bit shorter in reality than her official height).
Darkpower72 said on 22/Jun/18
Lol why’s Arnold’s picture here showing him to be so small haha. In his bodybuilding days, he definitely cleared 6’1”. He was a very tall guy and would be taller than almost anyone around. I noticed how he’d always stoop his head down and slightly forward and was always very relaxed about his posture. Judging by how confident he was and how he looked, he wasn’t concerned about his height and knew he was tall.

However, since acting until today he’s been standing up very straight and trying to be as tall as possible lol. He probably was an actual 6’1.5” (maybe 6’1 5/8th” in the morning) in his younger years but he’s certainly nowhere near that mark now. He was never the 6’2” he claimed though later on. Even though he’s lost a lot of height and isn’t as imposing, I personally think he still looks like a tallish guy so I wouldn’t put him under 5’11.5” today.

I see you dont have idea to guess height. Big lol at your 5'11.5 guess for Arnold in 2018 lol. He is 5'10.5 today standing tall and a strong 5'10 in his relax posture. So many evidences. Arnold is closer to the Camera next to Ronald Reagan and next to Stallone is also standing taller than him. Arnold has 2 inches on him no more. He was 6'0.5 prime
mister_lennon said on 22/Jun/18
ferryfoot, arnold was a true 6´1 and a half at peak. cameron was a solid 6'2 guy at peak. arnold was only 1 inch shorter tan cameron. never 1'5 inches or more.
Dingus said on 20/Jun/18
These days Arnold is about 5'11.5" or so. He has a much taller peak height. Some people have claimed he's only 5'10 and those claims go back to at least the late 80's. It seems unlikely Arnold has been progressively faking his height less and less. I doubt he used to pretend to be 6'02, then in the 90's he started to pretend to be 6'01", 6'00" in the 2000's and 5'11" in the 2010's. Arnold has clearly undergone the height loss many people naturally do as they age in life. Injures from bodybuilding and acting combined wit the fact that steroids wear away at bones has likely cost him an inch or so.

With the 6ft Ronald Reagan some time in the early 1980's.

With the 5'08.50" Sly Stallone relatively recently.

Arnold has lost height. He wasn't secretly short and we just recently exposed him. For whatever reason a lot of people are obsessed with proving he's shorter than he's usually listed. In fatness some of his measurements from his bodybuilding days are probably exagerations. His biceps probably weren't quit as big as listed. Arnold probably started losing height in the late 80's based on all the movies I've seen with him.

Peak Height: ~6'01.25"-6'01.75"

2018 Height: ~5'11.25"-5'11.50"

Mister lennon said on 19/Jun/18 you are funny. If were that tall you would not see the difference.
In the 90's you can see Arnold is about 1.5 inch shorter than him or more. He was 6-0.5 peak and in the 90's he was 6'0.25
Mister lennon said on 19/Jun/18
He was shorter than cameron because cameron was 6'2 and arnold 6'1 and a half.
Minimum 6'1 and a half at peak. 186-187.

And shorter than James Cameron and some other legit 6'2 guys. Is funny how a minority still say he was 6'2. 6-0.5 never over.
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Jun/18
@Danimal: It looks a little less than 2" in the photo, but in the video I see roughly 2" between them when they're posing for photos, but as I said, I'd need to see Mario's footwear. Here's the video with Fallon: Click Here Do you honestly see much of a difference throughout the video? Depending on how they stand, Jimmy can look taller, but at other times they look close. I thought Arnie looked about 5'10.75" with St. Pierre or weak 5'11" range, but I don't think Arnold stands at his full height as much the last 5-10 years. If Arnold is that compressed and shrunken, wouldn't it be doubtful he'd stand with good posture? If Arnold were really 5'10"-5'10.5", I'd expect him to look 5'9" range at times when he's not standing straight. His co-stars in Terminator Genisys were Jai Courtney and Jason Clarke, whom Rob lists 6'0.75" and 6'1", respectively. Arnold could still look close to their heights with a little extra cowboy-type heel and this was less than 3 years ago.

At the same, Arnold was still noticeably taller than 5'10" J.K. Simmons. Simmons could be 177 cm these days or your height, but in that case Arnold still looked roughly 5'11" give or take. Unless Arnold has taken to wearing lifts with those boots, I just don't see how he'd look that close in height to men apparently around 6'1" or just under if he were only 5'10"-5'10.5". I believe he's been measuring himself in shoes such as when he mentioned measuring 6'1" in '08 and 6'0.5" in '13 so I believe his barefoot height is an inch to 3 cm less than that at each time. In 2014, Arnold also reached around 6'4.75" Joe Manganiello's eye level. I agree with you that it's incredible to see Arnold today with 6'1"-6'2" range men, but I don't think he'd measure less than 5'11" yet. 2" is a significant loss for his age. As you know, if he's lost 2.25" as Rob estimates then that's already an inch more than the average for a 70 year old.

I totally agree. Peak 184 range today 180 cm no more. His posture makes him look at 5'10 sometimes. Those 187 guesses are out of argument and of course they don't know to judge a real 187 cm man.
Tallagaton said on 12/Jun/18
This is simple. Easier than you all think. Arnold is 71 years old nowdays and you guys are guessing his height at 186 or 187 cm knowing in 2018 he is 180 cm tops, because there are so many evidences and proofs he is 179 range or weak 180. Safe to say he is not over 180 cm.. Ok look at him he looks so good, you are saying 7 cm just disappeared? lol . So there were 7 cm cut in his spine? lol If he really lost 7 cm he wouldn't look as he looks today. His back his posture is still good but yes you can see he lost some height but not 7 cm please! He can be on a good posture sometimes. In his case being 180 cm is the proof he never ever was 186, don't even argue 187, because is a joke. He never looked that tall. Over 184'5 cm is just a lie I can't go ver this mark and 4'5 cm height loss is a signiticate lost. Just get a metric stadidometer and watch how much really is 4'5 cm. 184'5 cm or 6'0.5 to 6'0.75 peak is more reasonable to guess please. Some of you saying he was 190 cm with shoes what a big joke. Yes he was 187 but with good shoes in his prime.

@jacksonbalby: You're right that Mario is more like 5'8.5", maybe 5'9" at the absolute most, but Arnold definitely looks around 2" taller in the video. And 5'10.75" would be more like the absolute lowest Arnold could be nowadays since that's about as short as I've seen him look, but he's going to look shorter than he is at times due to posture. Surprisingly, Arnold in the recent video didn't look any taller than Ice-T did with Mario Lopez. But Mario can go from looking as short as 5'8" to as tall as 5'10" so he's not the best reference point. Look at the video I posted of Mario and Edward James Olmos where they look close in height and now look at this photo: Click Here How does Mario go from looking similar in height to 2" taller?

I'm surprised you give him that high of a height Rising. He doesn't have 2" or more on Mario Lopez. He just doesn't. I realize Rob is very slow as lowering heights of celebs, even in the face of ample evidence to support a lowering of said height, but I truly believe that he is barely over 5'10" today. Maybe 5'10.5" at best and that's being generous. His body has completely collapsed on itself ever since he became the Governor 15 years ago. 5'11" barefoot Dennis Wolf was the same height as Arnold in dress shoes. We know how much height Jimmy Fallon had on him a few years ago and how Arnold stacked up to George St. Pierre (looking even under 5'11" back then). He looks even more compressed today. You know, Arnold's IDOL was Reg Park, who was at his own peak a 6'1"-6'2" guy and by the time he died, Arnold TOWERED over him by several inches at an awards show. The irony is that Arnold now is the one being towered over by guys who are the height Arnold once was.

Lopez was taller than Dustin Diamond as was M-PG earlier in but now Diamond appears taller in later episodes of Saved By the Bell than Lopez

I'd guess 6'1" for Arnie's peak

Here's the photo with Superstar Graham (6'3.5" peak according to himself):

Click Here

Let's put Graham at 6'4.25" in those shoes, that would make his eye level just under 6'0"

That'd put Arnie at ~5'11" in the picture, losing perhaps 2" from his stance

I think he started to lose height quickly due to the steroids & weights, being around 6'0" by the early 1990s:

There are not 2 inches beteween them. You could say 1'75 at most. Arnold is a bit closer to the camera too. You are blind yes.

If you're going to conclude from comparisons where we can't see their shoes, then I guess Mario must be less than 172 cm because he's shorter than Robert Downey Jr.: Click Here
Of course, we know why Downey looks taller, but that's exactly why you can't draw conclusions without seeing shoes, much less from still photos with bad posture. Notice Mario is barely taller than 5'8" Bill Maher: Click Here He's barely taller than Edward James Olmos, who is only about 5'8" these days himself: Click Here He's no more than an inch taller than Jeremy Piven, who isn't taller than the 172 cm he's listed here: Click Here There are full photos of the two as well from a triathalon they ran together and Mario is barely taller there as well: Click Here Certainly not over 5'9" next to 5'7.5" William Shatner: Click Here Here's another photo with Seacrest from the same day as the full photo: Click Here

Can we put to rest this stuff about Mario being 5'10"? The real question is whether he's the full 5'9" Rob lists him or more like 5'8.5". If you mean to prove he can look taller than 5'9" at times, then that's true and relevant for a comparison to Arnold and I agree the difference in the video is more like 2", but there would have to be some sort of new technology of reverse lifts for Mario to be 5'10".

The height of Tom Hardy 5'9 ", in the photo shows that Lopez will be at least 1/2 inch taller than Tom, at most 1 inch, if Mario stands straight.

Rising - 174 cm said on 30/May/18
@Canson: agreed. He was probably a solid 6'1" guy and would likely measure about 2" shorter today, but as I said, I've also seen him look a weak 5'11" or around 5'10.75", which I assume is due to posture. I do think Arnold was still at least 5'11.5" when he returned to movies and 6'0" for most of the time he was Governor.

@777: Mario is NOT 5'10" or even close. There are plenty of comparisons of Mario with men closer to his height where we can see their shoes and ground. Mario is shorter than 174-175 cm Jean-Claude Van Damme: Click Here You can see Van Damme has normal shoes when he kicks and there are photos the same day showing their shoes. Here's a video to show him looking shorter than Jason Statham, who Rob lists 5'8.75": Click Here You can also see him shorter than Van Damme again later in that same video around 3:11 and earlier in the video at 1:27, he's noticeably shorter than a 72 year old Chuck Norris, who Rob lists 5'8.5" peak, but Chuck was wearing elevator boots to the premiere. Still, Chuck certainly couldn't pass for taller than 5'10" himself at that stage and probably appeared like more of a 5'9.5" guy. Now look at Mario barely taller than Ryan Seacrest, who Rob lists at 5'7.5": Click Here

Yours guess is the most unreal I've ever seen. You should not say nothing because you don't have idea.
Mario Lopez 5'10? Are you blind right? The guy is a weak 175 man or 5'8.75. Arnold is not 2 inches on him more 1'5. Arnold is 5'10.5 today.

@Rising: poor posture probably has a lot to do with it. Arnold looks like he’s lost a lot of height over the years. I would’ve said he was around 6’1 peak and probably 5’11 today but he even looks shorter on some occasions like with Lopez
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/May/18
Arnold looks shorter than I'd expect with Mario Lopez in the photo, but more than just 1" taller and look at the video from that day, Arnie does look about 2" taller: Click Here You can clearly see Mario's eyes around the bottom of Arnold's nose. A still photo might be taken when someone dropped height for a moment so seeing the video of that very moment generally gives you a better idea. The shortest I could possibly see Arnie even today is a weak 5'11" or 5'10.75", but I think a strong 5'11" or 181 cm range is probably about right when he stands at his full height. His prime height is still a bit baffling to me. There are times when he looks the 6'1.5", but then more 6'1" at other times like Raw Deal. I'd still think taller than a flat 6'1" and I think Vince Basille is credible, but a slight margin of error should never be ruled out.

Btw, I seriously doubt Mario is even 5'9" or anything over 5'8.5" for that matter. He's been shorter than probably a dozen 5-9ish guys I've seen him with, including Jean-Claude Van Damme on more than one occasion circa 2011 when JCVD was probably not a full 5'9" himself. He was always visibly shorter than Emmitt Smith, who was listed at 5'9" himself during part of his playing career. Mario really isn't that much taller a number of 5'7" and change guys like Jeremy Piven, Ryan Seacrest and Tom Cruise. In fact, I've seen Cruise look as tall or taller on at least one occasion. He is taller than 5'8", though and he oddly looks at least 5'9.5"-5'10" sometimes so I think we have to see his footwear with Arnold because the man insists he's 5'11"! Anyone who adds a minimum 2" to their height is at least a candidate for lifts, especially in Hollywood.

Rob. Interesting what he said: What do you think big Rob! I think he is honest and pictures do not lie!
ManKo said on 25/Mar/18
To be honest I met him briefly and I did not play any attention to his footwear, so I can't say who had the footwear advantage. I can also say that I am about 181.cm in the morning and 179.5cm at night(give or take a few mm) and on the picture he seems to be slightly shorter.

I think that at this point Arnold is 180.5cm in the morning and 178.5 at night. And at his peak he was probably around 184-185cm.

On the other hand, I met some strongmen and I have pictures with some such as Zydrunas and Brian Shaw and they are definitely huge and I would say that they are as tall as they claim to be, or even taller (I thought that Zydrunas was taller than 191cm)

To Dmeyer:

Not agree. He wasn't 6'2 at morning maybe 6'1.25. Just never looked that tall! If you watch his movies he looked a strong 6 footer and possible near the 6'1 mark in his golden days. You can see he never looked that tall next to Frank Zane and Mike Mentzer. These 2 were In the 5,8 zone Frank Zane was 175 max Arnold just looked over 2 inches on him not even 3. To be honest even in his prime looked a strong 183 man. When you are muscular sometimes you look taller and at that time Arnold had a great posture. I think he was 6'0.5 6'1 at morning ok.. But I think is still a lot . A legit 6'1 is very tall.

Arnold was never over 184'5 cm or 6'0.5-75. If he ever was a legit 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 he would had look 6'3 in movies in Terminator with his boots and never looked that tall. The most he looked with boots is 6'2. Other reason is today 179 cm or close to 180 if you want. I can't go over a strong 184 man that was his real height. A medical measurement and correct would be 184 range in his prime.

Heighliker said on 5/May/18
Let's be objective here:
You think as I do Arnold lost his first cm around 1991 maybe 1992-1993. He still was very young those years 44 years old more or less. Arnold at 44 was at worst lost 1 cm impossible more. You can see how good he looked. Since 1993 to 2000 maybe lost 1 cm more. And from 2000 to 2018 I would say he lost 2 more cm. So I can't really imagine more than 4 cm shrunk for Arnie. Ok lets say 5! And I think is a lot. He is today 179 range 180 at best. Arnold never ever could be 186! I go with 184 cm and 185 cm hard to see, Maybe a morning or good day measurement. From 184'5 to 179,5 cm . END

"there is absolutely no way a person can lose 2 inches of height without suffering a severe accident. "

Of course there is. It's called aging.
The spinal disks actually get thinner as you age and that makes you lose height.
My father actually lost 3 inches between his younger days and now (he's 80+).

@EltonAs Everyone is entitled to their opinion so please respect it whether you agree or disagree. As for Arnold's peak height I can assure you as a 184cm guy myself (I wake up as 185cm after a good night's sleep and sleep as 183cm)looking through many videos, photos and other footage of him he always looked a bit taller around 186cm. I agree he wasn't 187cm. But that's my opinion again anyway :)
EltonAs said on 29/Apr/18
In my opinion the most he could shrunk is 4 to 5 cm and minimum 3 cm. So 183-184 to 179 makes more sense. 185 just could hit at morning or in his best peak day, but I say 184 maxx

Sounds nonsense. Nobody believe those guesses. You should try a new one. Nobody believes a guy like Arnold went from 186 to 178-179 even all those injuries. He went from a strong 184 guy to 179 5 cm. A better and more realistic stimation, but please I cant go with those few "186 guesses stop please...
Leno said on 28/Apr/18
In the 1980 edition of Mr.olympia, along side Mentzer and Zane, he didn't look over 181-182, so o guess he is 182-3 peak and 181-180 now if he really shrank

To Gornald:
No one here say he was 188cm which is almost 6'2.25. Don't say something nobody believe. We already know he was not even 186 cm and you try with 188 .. He was max 185 cm which is 6'0.75. He never looked 6'2 with shoes more 6'1.5
Jim Hopper said on 24/Apr/18
@Gornald That is what I posted also. I legit 6-2 guy in biker boots will look 6-3 or possible 6-4 almost. He never ever ever looked that tall. Looked 6-2 in the boots indeed. Without 6-0,5 peak
Gornald said on 23/Apr/18
The thing is, if Arnie was really 188cm tall and so having his shoes on would make him 190cm+ and that would be pretty tall which to me he never appeared like that on screen or next to someone up until his 50s... do you guys agree?
AdyEli said on 23/Apr/18
I think we are talking and talking the same story. This story is over. The average guess is closer to the truth than his listed height for sure is far. Today he is a weak 180 man the guy who met him is 180 cm and says he is 1 cm on him and he even said he maybe had more advantage shoe. So Arnold at 179'5 more or less today and 183 in Terminator 2 when he was 43 years old is impossible he ever hit 6'1. If he was 183 at 43 he was max 184'5 cm . End of story
Juby5'9 3/4 said on 23/Apr/18
@Ian C.
If I remember correctly, there are couple of shots in "End of Days" when we clearly can see, that Arnold wears cowboy boots which added him at least 1,5 inches. Same situation as it was with T2 and even more in the first Terminator (boots gave him solid +2 inches).
gipsonishere said on 23/Apr/18

Robert Patrick was 180 cm peak and today is 5'10.5 He said Arnold was about his size and 1 inch on him. So Arnold was a strong 6 foot in Terminator2 but wearing his boots anybody would guess him at 6'1 minimum. I think Arnold was 6'0.5 peak I agree this guys He was not even 6'1. I go with 6'0.75 at very very most

Nils2 said on 20/Apr/18
You can clearly tell on his body that he lost quite abit height. I think he lost height earlier then most people. I'm still sceptic to 6'1.5 peak but for sure he was over 6ft. In his prime he probably got away with 6'2 to most people.
Jim Hopper said on 20/Apr/18

Check out Arnold in End of Days, which he made when he was 51. He walks like a very old man. He shuffles his feet, barely lifting them off the ground, and he lurches from side to side. This fascinates and appalls me because Arnold has presented himself as a physical superman and an expert on building strength and health, and yet it is obvious that bodybuilding has prematurely aged his body. At fifty it was if he didn't have a healthy tendon anywhere in his body from the waist down.

And of course he has had heart problems.

there is absolutely no way a person can lose 2 inches of height without suffering a severe accident.

Arnold has indeed been in a few accidents throughout his career, including motorcycle accidents and incidents on film sets.

Regardless, there can also be other reasons for losing so much height. My grandfather, 6'0" at his peak, is no more than 5'8" now in his old age. He hasn't been in an accident, he just got old and frail.

Arnold was clearly 186-187 in his prime. He was tall, clearly taller than average, but still shorter of 190 and 190+ people. Infact just about 1 out of 10 people was taller than him. That is the classic "being towered ratio" of a 6'1.5 tall person.
If he was 6'1 or worst 6, he would have looked much more average throughout his career.

Plus you can see he was same height of other almost 6'2 celebrities like Bridges, Rapaport or president Clinton
Tomm said on 10/Apr/18
there is absolutely no way a person can lose 2 inches of height without suffering a severe accident. Arnold has alway been healthy posture-wise and always had great posture. He quit lifting heavy early. The reason you list him 5'11 today and 6ft2 peak is because today you see the truth. In the 70's the average height in America was 5'7, so of course Arnold would be a giant. You seriously can't peak a person over 2cm of height in comparison to their old self. Arnold peaked at 6ft and that is a generous estimative

There is no chance he lost 6 to 7 cm even about those injuries. The man looks great at 70 but to me he maybe was 185 on a good day. Definetely no less than 184 and not over 185 cm. Give him 4 mm and you have 185'47 6'1. But never over this absolutely

To be honest I met him briefly and I did not play any attention to his footwear, so I can't say who had the footwear advantage. I can also say that I am about 181.cm in the morning and 179.5cm at night(give or take a few mm) and on the picture he seems to be slightly shorter.

I think that at this point Arnold is 180.5cm in the morning and 178.5 at night. And at his peak he was probably around 184-185cm.

I can buy 185 cm for his peak If an early measurement but more 184 to me

Hi Rob, take a look at this pic

Why are Lou and Arnold looking to be the exact same height on this photo, who knows?
Editor Rob
A low angle and maybe Arnold a bit closer.
Mister lennon said on 4/Apr/18
186-187 peak. Strong 6'1.
Now he is about 179-180. Strong 5'10 or weak 5'11.

Hi Andy,

On the other hand, I met some strongmen and I have pictures with some such as Zydrunas and Brian Shaw and they are definitely huge and I would say that they are as tall as they claim to be, or even taller (I thought that Zydrunas was taller than 191cm)
santgr said on 2/Apr/18
I really think the average guess here is the truth for his peak height. Rob would you consider downgrading him to 6ft1.25 at least?
samuelgoup said on 1/Apr/18
Well even If he can hit 180,5 to 181 cm today knowing all those injuries I think 185 cm or 6'0.75 is fair acceptable and fair to his peak not a mm over. Maybe he woke up at 186-186,5 in his best prime day
samuelgoup said on 1/Apr/18
Rob I always used too believed he was 183 to 184 or 6 to 6'0.25 but I knew some days ago he had a heart surgery and I'm happy he is recovering.. Well reading more information I also knew he had multiple injuries: Broken ribs IN 2001, a hip replaced and rotator cuff surgery in 2003. He broke his right femur in a sking accident in 2006.
Also knowing he lifted heavy weights during a lot of years now I think he could shrunk almost 2 inches or 5 cm at most.
So Arnold could hit 185 cm but I think is the most he was because today is not over 5'10.75 trust me he is not 5'11 barefoot. So Is fair saying he went from 185 to 180 today

MEK said on 28/Oct/05
Arnold's Golden days height was = 6'0" similar to (184cm)
He then lost few cms and now he is = 5'11" similar to (181cm)

Would you believe the truth?
samuelgoup said on 1/Apr/18
To Gleb
Is not correct sorry. Arnold was 185 cm in his best day. I say a strong 184. 187 cm is still very upgrade

He was 187sm a morning height as I see,185 sm in evenings at his prime.So,this listing is about correct.
samuelgoup said on 30/Mar/18
Guys call me crazy but usually dreams give you the answer and the truth. Sometime ago I dreamt I was measuring Arnold height lol yes.. He was in his 20's when he was competing and was very big and muscular. The stadiometer give 184'6 or 184'8 not sure (it was a dream). haha however before this dream he always gave me the impression of a 184 solid man nearly 185 or 185 after 1-2 hours wake up
samuelgoup said on 30/Mar/18
ManKo you rock man! I always knew it! We finally know the man's height! Arnold is about 180 today (5'10.75 at 70) (5'11- 5'11.25 at 60) peak 184-185 as Manko said. I also knew he was 6'0.5 .75 weak 6'1 at best

Your hair might be around his eyebrow range, well, if you were going with about 5ft 11 today.

Rob won't change his height. Arnold is barely over 5'10" today and has been for a while. 5'11"-5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon had well over 1" on Arnold already a few years ago.

Tunman said on 29/Mar/18
@Richardhero
the part about stretching the neck is interesting,it could indeed be an indicator of why he could look only 6'1 so often.I think it can definitely give 0.5 if busting a gut.But I doubt he would go on tip toes,I mean Basille wasn't the biggest fan of Arnie to let him cheat on everything.Anyways from looking to pics here are the impressions he left me:
4"taller than 5'9 Sly
3"shorter than 6'4 Ferrigno
definitely the same as both Weathers and Tom Arnold 2 6'1ers (the latter actually thought Schwarzennegger was taller than him though I feel they were similar).
In the end it's more than likely that he got his 6'1.5 measurement by doing everything possible to optimise his height but I doubt he's under 6'1
Cole said on 29/Mar/18
I meet the hodgetwins last night took a picture with them there 6,2 I’m a tiny bit under 5,11 in the morning they have meet Arnold they have a picture with him they said he had boots on my boots give me one inch so I’m probably just hitting 6ft in them they said he was the same height has me
Danimal said on 29/Mar/18
Arnold in an early lineup barefoot with a bunch of other bodybuilders from the golden era. Next to him is 6'0" Dave Draper, in the middle is 6'0" Ric Drasin, and the far side is 6'0" Ken Waller. Just measure from the top of the their heads to the top of the border. Arnold was easily 6'1.5"-6'1.75" at that time of his life. Remember, they are all barefoot.

Barry Fl said on 28/Mar/18
To be honest I think we've done fairly well on the subject of Arnold overall, on this page. Most of us agree on 6 to 6'1 peak, and around about 5'11 now (either just under or just over). As far as we can be certain, we've pretty much got him pinned down.
Barry Fl said on 28/Mar/18
From what I remember, Arnold wasn’t happy about the Vince Basille measurement, as he was insistent that he was 6’2. When the measurement came out lower he asked to be measured again, stretched and strained and stood up as straight as possible – and the measurement was exactly the same – 6’1.5. I think if Vince’s stadiometer was incorrect then Arnold would have been more than happy with the result. The fact that he wasn’t, and demanded to be measured again, is worth keeping in mind.
Jim Hopper said on 27/Mar/18
If he WAS an approx 6-2 peak barefoot guy he would of looked 6-3 to 6-4 in the Terminator films wearing biker books which give you a height boost from 1" to 2" inches. {my boots give me well over an inch increase}. So its not rocket science to say he was never ever looking 6-3 6-4" in any films!!!!!!! Ever!!! So the truth is he was 6-0.5" peak and looked {6-2" in boots} in Terminator etc. Sorry fanboys Today looks 5-11" max
santgr said on 27/Mar/18
Solid 6ft1 for peak Arnold.Today he is just below 5ft11.
Barry Fl said on 27/Mar/18
You really think nobody would have noticed Arnold standing on tiptoe as he was having his height measured?

Richardhero said on 26/Mar/18
This is the truth: Young Arnie was a solid 184(6'0.5) and maybe could cheat to hit the "famous" 6'1.5 measured from Vince Basille ,standing very tall stretching his neck and elevating his toe hidden on the floor nobody would see that down there.
EthanCouch said on 26/Mar/18
Probably around 5’10 even Rob.
Richardhero said on 26/Mar/18
I meant elevating heels is easy to hide them when you get measured. If you elevate your heels and stretchig your neck he could add 1 inch to hit 6'1.5 from Vince Basille, but the truth he would measure 6'0.5 on an apprpiate medical height test (184 cm)

Arnold himself said a couple years ago on ana interview sound on height measurement like he cheats talking about hoe to hit the highest height measurement stretchin his neck, etc. Also knowing in bodybuilding inflated heights and his personality.. Looks like he was a a 184 guy on an proopiate measurement
Richardhero said on 25/Mar/18
Rob do you believe he was 186'7 cm? I really like this site but I can't go with this lie. Too many pics out there and people testimonies saying he was never over 6'1. I also believe he was close to 6'1 closer to 6'0.5. Arnold is my favorite actor adn he is the best but enough saying he was a big muscular guy 184 cm or 6 1/2 dude

Who is seeing a 186'7 cm Arnold?? The highest mark I found on Arnold is 6'0.5 and lowest 6 footer. 6'1.5 is a big lie. Honesty please
Editor Rob
Arnold is the only actor in Hollywood who offered to paint shoes on his feet so that he wouldn't look 6ft 1.5 in films...

Ok, now that's a lie!

Was the guy who measured Arnold lying about it? I don't think he was...but it's not impossible for the stadiometer to have been off slightly. That might support the argument of 6ft 1 max for him.

In this photo from 1983 Arnold is holding his citizenship certificate. It is difficult to read but I think the certificate states his height as 6ft2 and his weight as 215 pounds. I guess he did not get measured for his citizenship certificate and they just asked Mr. Schwarzenegger.

Yuval said on 25/Mar/18
Franco Colombu was probably 5'4 peak. So just take a look of all the barefoot photos of Arnold and Franco..
As I see it he is probably more like a 6'1 kind of guy. This explaines more the height loss, losing 4-5 cm is more reasonable then 6 cm.

@Juby5'9 3/4

Not really, shrinking around 2 cm per day is kind of average. Your genetics and your daily activities, things like weightlifting, running, a physical job, etc it will also affect how much you shrink during the day, as far as I know.

Kostas said on 22/Mar/18
Let me break it down for you.

Arnie was around 183-184 cm at his peak height. Not a centimeter taller.

How he achieved a 187 cm measurement in 1969 can be explained easily. Human height can flactuate during the day by 1 to 1,5 cm.

Arnie probably hang himself upside down for an hour or two before getting his height measured which would increase his height temporarily plus he probably took a big breath to fill his lungs so he can maximize his height and made sure to gain any extra mm by taking the best posture possible and lifting his heels as much as possible.

Not suprising consider his is obsessed with his height.

He could easily get to 187 from 183,5 doing all that.

Now pretending to be 187 when you are 183,5 cm isnt really hard. Arnie always wore lifts and boots with high-heels so he would tower everyone.
The fact that he was so mascular & massive also added to the illusion of his towering stature.

I wouldnt be suprised if he also wore the thickest socks possible. Those celebrities are obsessed with their image.

Arnie looks to be the same height or sligthly shorter than Jeff Bridges who is 184-185 cm.

You can also find many photos of Arnie standing next to Kristanna Loken who is 180 cm and they appear to be the same height. Loken wears high heels but so does Arnie with his boots. And in some photos Loken looks taller.

There is no way in hell Arnie was taller than 184 cm in his prime. He is a liar.

Nowdays he looks like a 178-180cm guy which is a reasonable drop considering his age. There is no way he dropped from 187cm to 178-180cm. but from 183-184 cm the drop is possible.

To sum it up.

Arnie at his peak 183-184 cm.
Arnie nowdays 178-180 cm.
