How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Height

5ft 11 (180.3 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.

Nobody is saying he was 5'11 peak but neither 6'2!
In the photo Arnold is closer to the camera more than Joe Weider and old Joe there looks more 5'9 a weak 5'9 guy you can see he is not 5'10. Arnold looks 3 full inches taller than him even if Joe is with shoes.
So we know he was not 5'11 but 6'0.5 was his real height. Too many photos evidences and people wh met him put Arnold at 6'0.5 as his real height not a tricky measurement. On stadiometer Arnold was a strong 6'0 footer 6'0.5 max today you can see those photos with taller guys saying Arnold is 5'10.5 max nowadays.

Reality peak height: 184 cm
Movies fiction height-bodybuilding: 186 cm
I'm not surprised so I'm 176.5 cm (5'9.5)at a medical check and same measurement on stadiometer. People usually guess I'm 5'10 -5'10.5. (178-179 cm)
Arnie case very simple peak 184 cm now 179 cm
On foot 6'0.5 peak now 5'10.25-5'10.5

" He wasn't under 6'1" peak."

@Johan how explain all the comparisons Arnold next to others guys? =Yuri Vlasov ,Chet Yorton,Charles Meshak,etc etc = all this guys would have a false official height and not Arnold....What is the probability....Lou (lots of time Arnold compared to him by good pics) looks a weak 6"3' next to guys like John Larroquette Richard Moll Manny Perry Dick Durok Ralph Moeller....=or Lou has a bad official height or all this guys have a bad official height.....Again =What is the probability?....
Pierre said on 14/Oct/19
Houss if i had a problem with heights of tall guys how can you explain i guess (for example) John Larroquette around 6"4',Richard Moll around 6"8' when i'm only 6"0' after sleeping....your argument sounds false .The fact is by your comments here you seems to have a problem with guys who guess Arnold shorter than your guess....But generally this guessers post good pics and good arguments...
Pierre said on 14/Oct/19
@Johan = If my memory is good Sotiris in a comment here posted the same pic as yours but this time with the good angle....you can see by the vertical lines behind Arnold and Joe the pic is inclined and favor Arnold....plus Joe was probably under 5"10' particularly by the years.And Arnold here is standing as straight as possible in contrary to Joe....Other pics show a smaller difference between Joe and Arnold = Click Here Click Here Click Here Arnold and an old Ben Weider listed 5"11' = Click Here Click Here
Caldoni said on 14/Oct/19
Most generous peak height I could give him is 6-1. Probably just under in truth. With his boots on people will always side with the 6-2 silliness. A 6-2 guy is 6-2 barefoot not the other way around.
houss said on 14/Oct/19
@pierre in fact i think you have a problem with everyone taller than you , you and your giant friend Solaris or i don't know his name , Arnold was a tall guy , even in his early 70's he still look tall 5'11" is a tall guy for me , even if he was just a 184 cm guy I'll consider him a tall guy

----------

Just to prove he wasn't 5'11" peak lets see this one again.

5'10" peak Joe Weider who is at least 5'10" in shoes here, solid 3" difference. He wasn't under 6'1" peak.
Pierre said on 13/Oct/19
Lol houss i have no problem with Arnold's height = this is your eternal argument =the good pics posted by Sotiris some internauts and myself give me credit....I continue to believe this is not me who have a problem with Arnold 's height Houss.....
houss said on 12/Oct/19
@pierre so! we should say this is lying about his height to make you happy
In fact we don't care about your opinion here we all know that you have problem with your height ....
@Unvui i didn't knew height measurement needs a scientist like you
What i don't understand is why no one said Arnold is not 6'2" in the 70s or in 80s , he met a lot of people , journalists , no one said something about Arnold been 5'10 or 5'11

"This guy can't lie about his height cause as a former bodyuilder (the GOAT), he was reglementary measured and weighed every single week in the 70's"...'

By that logic, Hulk Hogan must have been six foot seven, because that's what his wrestling promoters promoted in the 1970's.

Was Schwartzie ever six foot two?

Was the Hulkster ever six foot seven?

They both would like to think so.

And they made their money in making you think so.

Were they?

No.

Not a snowball's chance in hell.

When it comes to official measurements, the IFBB (and all other bodybuilding 'federations' are as big a joke as all wrestling 'federations) is all about venality (putting fans in the stands), not veracity (telling the truth).

You both don't have idea about real heights and stadiometers measurements like medical checks. Arnold was a chance of 6'0.25 barefoot in his 20's and maybe a miracle If he ever hit 6'0.5

Houss's pic on 10/Oct = Imo Arnold's head is standing on the same side of the objective of the camera /mobil phone and very close of it and explain why Arnold's head is looking so big next to the head of the 5"9' guy.If both were standing at the same distance to the objective the difference of heights would look very probably smaller

@pierre as i told you before you don't have to make people shorter than they are in real life just to feel more secure about your height , arnold was a tall man , and even after his height loss I'm 100% that he is taller than you

Your argument to Josue is ="Arnold is taller than Georges W. Bush who is 5"11' himself" = Click Here = No sorry Georges is not 5"11' next to Barack he's a weak 5"10' in 2009. Click Here = And Arnold here in 2007 in better posture than Georges is around 5"11' not 6"0' or 6"1'(his high hairs don't count of course) = other pic 2008 = Click Here =same difference ,Arnold looks 5"11' in the best case by this comparisons

@jossue
I found this in the link you gave to us
"While Arnold Schwarzenegger's height was always believed to be 6 feet, 2 inches (1.88 m), a July 2002 article in US Weekly magazine speculated that Schwarzenegger was actually closer to 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m). During his campaign for governorship it was noted that Schwarzenegger was considerably shorter than many expected, with others putting his height at around 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m), exactly as reported in US Weekly. His spokespeople now give his height as 6 ft even (1.83 m). In photographs of Schwarzenegger standing next to George W. Bush in Ohio in October 2004, the Governor is one inch shorter than the 5 ft 11 in President."
No my friend he was taller than g w bush who's 5'11 him self , i just put a lot of evidence that he's not 5'10 but no one cares about my pictures , just take a look at my previous comment

I agree you Pierre said on 5/Oct/19
At first I guess Arnold was 6'0.5 peak but now I'm starting to think he was 5'11.75 6'0 barefoot and nowadays is a 5'10.25 guy too many evidences.. Those who say he is 5'11 and 6'0 today I just don't respond them
Pierre said on 5/Oct/19
Sorry i made a mistake = Arnold 6"1'barefoot means Arnold is around 6"2' with shoes.It means Tom cruise is around 6"0' with shoes...=probability = 0% .the pic was made apparently in 1994 Arnold was only 47 here,i found the year here = Click Here
Pierre said on 5/Oct/19
Click Here = here is an old pic = Tom Hanks max 6"0' slouching

on Arnold is around the same height as him here.....And 6"1' means Tom Cruise is around 5"11' in good

shoes...

Here is Tom Cruise with James Corden = Click Here =

This time they have around the same heels because they do parachute jumping so elevator shoes are bad for this exercise(landing). they are standing close one to the other one at around 5:02 5:04 .James Corden is looking clearly taller than him.

Here is James Corden tiptoing next to Samuel Anderson in poor posture = Click Here

Here is Rob( 5"8 1/8')standing not particularly straight next to Samuel Anderson in better posture =

Arnold 6"1' or full 6"0' peak = probability = 0 % to me

Watch the photo I post and ask the 6'2.25 guy who met him and the 5'11 guy who is Manko and met him. Both are saying Arnold can't be over 5'10.5 since 2018. People always overstimatr half inchand 1 inch
unvui said on 4/Oct/19
No @Barry Fl. I can repeat the same. You overstimate your own height and peoples height. Arnold is 5'10.5 barefoot with luck and some say he is 5'10.25. Over 5'11 or 6 is just for a big joke and we can not take you words serious.
Johan 185 cm said on 4/Oct/19
Just can't see him at 5'10" flat, soon we will be getting 5'9" guesses here. He does look alot to be around 5'10.5" though but maybe posture plays a role at times. HE could possibly fall between 5'10.5"-5'11".

I still think solid 6'1" at peak. He had some early loss but now at 72 yrs its quite normal although on the high side.
Barry Fl said on 4/Oct/19
houss said on 3/Oct/19
@Unvui you're just another short guy who thinks maybe he's the same height as Arnold 😭🤣😂

My thoughts exactly!! This is getting crazy. Another few years 80% of the people on here will have Arnold at 5'6".

@Rob - "Here is a photo from 2016 With Carl Froch. I am not sure if Arnie has doc martin type boot on or not, but he held up well near six footer Carl there."

I was at that event, Rob. It was in Birmingham, January 2016. Arnold's footwear seemed normal. The Daily Mail published a bunch of pictures of him arriving which give some full-length views.
Editor Rob

If normal then he still was over 5ft 11 then

Well Barry always claimed to be near 5ft 10 on here, so arnold looked a very big 6ft, but had footwear advantage.

Obviously barry is in a better position having seen him.

a friend of mine that is a solid 190cm said he met arnold in 2000-2001 and said arnold was as tall as him , arnie was probably 183,5-184cm and maybe comboy boots looked 6'1 , i guess he gives a big impression , also a friend who is 186cm whom met arnie last year said arnie was same height , they both got fooled a solid 2inches

I just agree on all you said
The problem is that people overstimate their own heights. I'm 176.5 cm barefoot or a 5'9.5 guy and guess what? People can't believe I'm under 5'10 and they say I might be 5'10-5'10.5
I doubt Arnold is much taller than me nowadays he might be pretty similar the days. The guess my height at 5'10.5 ( 1 inch over my real height!)

I don't mind what you said or If you been face to face with Arnold. We know Arnold is max on the 5'10 range or maybe a flat 5'10 guy. Manko met him about 2 years ago and said was slight shorter than him and Manko said he is 5'10.5 during the day and 5'11 at morning and guess he was about 6'0.5 in his peak. Another guy met him too and this guy is 6'2.25. He post photo with him on twitter you can search here on comments and this guy said Arnold was about 5'10 5'10.5 being lucky. The guy at 6'2.25 was 4 inches taller. To conclude saying Arnold is 5'11-6 is absurd he was 5'11-6 maybe 15 years ago but nowadays is 5'10- 5'10.25. Peak 6'0.5
Barry Fl said on 2/Oct/19
I'm not here to convince anyone of anything, Danimal. I've neither the time nor the temperament for that. But telling me that I need to doubt the evidence of my own eyes while you have 100% 'proof' based on pictures on the internet seems rather unreasoned. This is why I emailed the picture to Rob privately - because people on here will believe what they want to believe, no matter what I say. When I did that you had a tantrum - and you guaranteed that nobody would ever hear from me again. Houss asked me how tall I thought Arnold was after meeting him face-to-face, and I answered him.

I've seen Arnold close-up on a number of occasions in the past handful of years, and always thought he looked 5'11-6' (even taking into account his footwear). This time I had a proper meeting and photo with him, and still think he's close enough to 6'. He's probably not lost as much height as most people think. From a distance he does look shorter as he's quite thick-set (and often surrounded by big people), and his posture (both standing and sitting) isn't always great. But he's still a big guy.

Barry, with all due respect, you are either overestimating you're own height if you think Arnold is 5'11"-6'0" today, or you're overestimating Arnold's, or both. There are literally dozens of pics and videos putting Arnold below 5'11" today. Many people (including myself) believe he is no taller than 5'10" today. Show us a pic of your and Arnold AND show us a measurement of yourself and THEN I will believe you. I have been on this site for 15 YEARS and have been through this a million times before. As the moderator of this site. His #1 contributor overestimated his own height by 1-1.5" for years. People claim their own height and 9 times out of 10 are either lying or really have NO idea of their true height, or their current height (they have aged and have lost height). So, until you step up to the plate and back up your claim, I will believe the others dozens of pics and videos putting a current day Arnold at 5'10" (at best).

I wonder sometimes about hsi footwear nowadays. He can go from looking 5'10.5" to a solid 5'11" in some pics. For sure not over 5'11" flat today but he was near 6' still in his 60's.

I don't get this guy. He doesn't even why in his message how tall he thought Arnold was, or how tall he is. What's the point of sending a pic to Rob if he doesn't disclose any information at all? We'll never hear back from him again, I guarantee that. What's most annoying is that he was most likely at the Arnold Classic and DID meet Arnold and DID have a picture taken with him, but we'll never know, because he wants to keep everything private. Anyway, I don't need his input. I've seen enough evidence of Arnold standing right next to MAX 6'1" Eddie Hall a few days ago and Eddie had at least 3" on him. Of course, that is being ignored by everyone this page. How people still think he's 5'11" is beyond me.

Arnold's arms look pretty long for his body in recent pictures, he definitely shrunk quite a bit. Looks 5'11 with Sylvester Stallone.

Given Lou Ferrigno's peak height, he might have been a weak 6'1 at his peak. Doesn't really look over 6'1 with Lou.


Arnold has long arms but this is not a real proof he was 6"1.5' =

Click Here In this pic next to Chet yorton listed 5"11' in web

you can see Arnold with his long arms looks only one hair taller than Chet Yorton here...

I'm not sure he looked only 5ft 10 there.

Rob, you know better than anybody that anyone can claim to be a certain height (Glenn rings a bell), but we KNOW Eddie Hall is not over 6'1" (he even appeared slightly shorter than 6'1" Larry Wheels). I was being generous when I said that Arnold looked 5'10" standing next to Eddie a few days ago. In reality, Eddie looks more than a mere 3" taller than Arnold there.

Let's just say Id bet money Arnold was a full 6-1 over Carl.

@Houss= yes around 6"2'...with probably advantageous shoes and gauge a guy just to stand next to him a short time is very hard in fact...Watch again the pics Carl /Rob = in the first pic he wear probably classic shoes and looks no more than 6"0'(take in consideration Rob break his posture too) ...in the second pic he looks around 6"1' ... Click Here Click Here

Here is young Carl Weathers next to Dolph Lundgren = Click Here

Here young David Soul listed = 6"0.5' next to Dolph Click Here
in this video at around 9:46 = Click Here

Carl by this comparison canot be taller than David imo (of course by considering postures /angles...)
Janito said on 13/Sep/19
It's clearly known Carl is 6'0 range nowadays probably 6'0.25 as Rob said. He met him and he has pics. He was about 6'1 peak and Arnold 6'0.5.
houss said on 13/Sep/19
@Pierre i asked the man him self " how tall do you think carl is" and he replied " 6'2" " you can see that in the comments session
Pierre said on 13/Sep/19
@ Houss's pics =

First= But imo Carl in events wear probably lifts this days(see the last pic next to Rob and the first pic...) then next to the 6"2.25' guy it gives always Carl 6"0' range in this case(and the guy slouch next to Carl he break his neck and probably his back so....)

Second = In the scene of Arm Wrestling in Predator the camera is almost constantly in curious non neutral angles and this is not Carl who is advantaged imo but more Arnold

Three = Elliot Gould almost constantly slouch in the scene and i don't remember the camera advantage Arnold

Four = i have never read an article inwhich Carl said Arnold was taller than him,and if it was the case if Carl believe Arnold is taller than him this is not an absolute proof he's really taller than him = I thought myself that a guy i know was taller than me (because i never really paid attention)and in reality he was even one hair shorter than me...

With Eliot we can't judge because the camera is in Elliot's favour and we don't see their shoes , and for pictures with wethers it's clear the camera angle is not in Arnold's favour , arnold was taller than carl , and i remember once i read an article when carl him self said Arnold was a little bit taller than him

In add to my comment = Comparisons Arnold /Elliot Gould and Elliot Gould /Bill Cosby = Now Bill Cosby/Terry Farrell = Click Here .Terry Farrel with an inch more heel than Josh 5"10.25' = Click Here .Maybe this comparisons can explain why James Caan does not look so short next to Elliot Gould...
Pierre said on 12/Sep/19
Click Here =very possibly Arnold was always in shoes = you can see at around 1:01 the right guy has no pants but always wearing shoes then maybe Arnold too.Then i think this is kind of random to compare Arnold with Elliot and Elliot has a ppor posture lots of time in this scene.
Click Here = here is a pic Elliot Gould/Bill Cosby listed 6"0'(real 6"0'?) =Here Elliot does not look 6"2' range that could explain why Elliot does not tower James Caan 5"9.5'

Click Here = here is a pic Arnold /Jeff Bridges i think both are wearing shoes here and Arnold looks always a little bit shorter than Jeff .

Now Jeff Bridges and a 6"2' guy Bruce Boxleitner (pic with Rob = Click Here he looks a little bit under 6"2' imo here but probably has lost a fraction by the years) =
Click Here =Imo Arnold is clearly never close to the 6"2' mark of Bruce or even close to 6"1' range by this comparison

He does not look 6'1 on that photo but Rob's listing means Carl at 6'1 peak and 6'0 range nowdays. Overal I agree what you said about Arnold

6.0.5 peak. With Elliot he’s 1.5 shorter.
Tall Sam said on 11/Sep/19
@Pierre, I do think Schwarzenegger was barefoot in that scene from The Long Goodbye. (James Caan and/or the director seems to have been self-conscious about his height at his peak BTW, Gould is disadvantaged in every shot with him).
Janito said on 11/Sep/19
@Pierre yep I totally agree and I've always thought the same. I just was curiosity on your opinion. I guess 6'0.5 peak Arnold max.
Pierre said on 11/Sep/19
@Janito = Carl Weathers in this pic (2010)= Click Here = does not really looks 6"1' imo more max 6"0',Carl slouch a litle bit on his right side but Rob isn't standing really straight.Imo a 6"1' guy looks taller than him next to a 5"8' guy.

In Predator they look very similar and you can see Rob met Carl Weathers and listed him at 6'1 peak. Saying Arnold was 6'0 peak changes everything.. In my opinion Carl was slightly taller maybe 1/4 inch

@Janito = Predator is one thing = arnold was the hero here = angles of the camera etc favour Arnold watch again the scène when they do arm wrestling = the camera is never in a neutral angle or maybe one second or two when the postures are in favour to Arnold...Random? Hum...

In The Long Goodbye, young Arnold stands next to Elliott Gould on a level floor, and seems to be about half an inch shorter. Gould is credibly listed as six foot-two. So Arnold was six foot-and-a-half. So Arnold's claimed height of six foot-two is legit, as rounding up by half is no great deception.

6-0 is too low.

6-1 minimum. The 6-1.5 measurement at night by a guy who hated Arnold backs up that he looked 6-1 usually with others


At least we agree on that
Pierre said on 8/Sep/19
@Dmeyer = When you look at lots of old comments /comparisons here with good pics/videos Commando etc (for example Arnold and Lou barefoot with good angle of the camera same distance to the camera etc and Comparisons Lou and other tall guys ) = the result is always the same = Young Arnold = 6"0' peak ...Then the mugshot with Harrison Ford is probably a good mugshot with a probability of 99,999% ...Harrison barefoot= 5"11' range

Janito said on 4/Sep/19
@Rob yep I agree Rob. I've been comparing photos and searching old photos and videos. Definetly I'm sure Arnold was busting a gut to measure 6'1.5. Overall I think he was so close. He probably was a strong 6'1 guy or 186 cm using the metrical system. I'd safely say he was never over 186.2 cm but somewhere 185.5-186.2 cm. Maybe he was 6'2" right after bed after a good long sleeping night in his 20's but as I said he was about 6'1 (185.5-186.2) and nowdays 180 cm 5-10.75

Canson said on 25/Aug/19
@Viper: back issues, knee issues, and hip replacement could lead to that. he’s probably lost 2.5-3” which is not too unrealistic. I think for his peak 6’1” today 5’10-5’11. Not so sure he was ever 6’1.5 at a low but maybe he was

Arnold's shrinkage is baffling even with all the weightlifting. I think he has shrunk 3 inches from 6-1 to 5-10.

At least with Hulk Hogan he's had a million surgeries which explains his dramatic height loss.

I just posted some before and after pics on Robert Plants page. I believe he has also gone from 6'1" down to 5'10" (like Arnold, Rob has him 1" too high). He's the same age as Arnold. Some people shrink much more than others and in different ways. In Plants case, he's very hunched over in the upper back/neck (sort of like Clint Eastwood, but more obviously curved), where as Arnold is just very compressed. Sometimes the spine just folds in on itself like an accordion. I believe Arnold has also had hip replacement surgery, which can knock off up to 2" in height if they don't replace the once long femur bone at the hip insertion with the same measurement as the original length. You can see this in cases like Hogan and Big Show who used to have long legs and larger hips, but are now much shorter and narrower. Also, look at Superstar Billy Graham. He used to be 6'3"/6'4" and was exactly the same height as Mike Tyson a few years back (5'10"). He's a combination of Hogan and Arnold in terms of how he's lost height (compressed). It happens Viper.

We live in a world of reality and unreality.
We need to learn that there's much more going on, that what some people want us to believe. And I'm not just talking about heights. We have lived in a world where 80% is just fake. No matter what others say you have to learn to think by your own no matter News or whatever. The reality is out there dont let others lie. It's human nature. People exaggerate to make their anecdotes better. ... They exaggerate their woes to get attention and sympathy. And now If you add the hollywood industry and movies marketing of course Arnold has been listed 6'2 same as Bodybuilding and other sports. Few cases heights are correctly listed by medical check.
But this is simple Arnold always had ego and self believed and determination and we know his personality a guy like Arnold who probably was a 6.0.5 solid muscular man would described himself taller and of course exaggerate his height rounding up or adding his sneakers or shoes. If he really was 6-1'5 barefoot I'm sure he would said 6'2 at least and maybe 6'2.5 and people would had guess him at 6'2.25 at least. A guy like him at 6'0.5 in his peak and knowing how he really is It was clear you all know were talking and talking during years on a debate on 6'1 and 6'2.
stylus said on 21/Aug/19
@Greg and peak was 6-0.5 and nowdays in the 5-10. 5'10.5 this is the truth. He lost 2 inches and that is. This is the end of this long debate pretty simple. Reality vs fiction and fake hollywood marketing where he is been listed at 6'1.5 / 6'2. he was 6'0.5 barefoot on his best days

Arnold is probably something like 5"9.75' now and was never 6"1' range.5"11.75' prime= then he has lost two inches that seems to me still a big loss for a slim 70 years guy.I think he wear sometimes little internal heels(elevator shoes) in some events.

Residual evidence Arnie was at least 6 ft 2 from 1999! On You tube he is interviewed by Johnny Vaughan who apparently is 6ft in shoes. At the beginning of the interview they walk side by side on a flat floor, totally level. Arnold is easily at least 2 inches taller. But his shoes offer a clue, they are VERY chunky!

Around and inch shorter than Hedlund who is 6'1.25" and more 3-4 cm shorter than Bruce who has held onto his 6'2" height pretty well.

So him still being 184 cm is still quite fair but more 6'0.25" today although a flat 6' is also possible.

Looked more 2 cm between him and Bruce in Tron, so jeff i now have as 186 cm peak. So Arnie 184 cm barefoot is my guess there. 6'0.25"-6'0.5" and thin shoes of 0.75" inch that Jeff has on so 6'1-6'1.25" from that clip.

In "Stay Hungry" Arnold stands head to head with Jeff Bridges who is 185cm. Jeff is wearing shoes and Arnold isn't and he clearly looks 1-2cm shorter than Jeff. So he was 185cm (6'1) at best.
Here's the clip: Click Here

----------

It depends on Jeff's peak. I would say today he is for sure not 6'1" as he was shorter than Ryan Reynolds in cowboyboots. Still he could look similar to Garret Hedlund in Tron legacy while barefoot and Hedlund isn't under 6'1".

I have him at 186-187 cm peak and so Arnold could look 184-185 cm there but then he is barefoot so I think 186 cm range is a high possibility.

In this video Click Here = do very low speed and pause at around 0:17 (when they just start to shake hands both are around the same posture at a moment Liev is closer to the camera) .And compare the same Stephen Colbert and Barack i guess 6"0.75'(Barack isn't standing a lot closer to the camera like Liev) = Click Here

Now Von Miller next to Peyton Manning Rob listed 6"5.25'(196)If his list is good.....
Click Here Von Miller as tall as 6"2'?Hum....I guess him easily shorter here!

Problem here is many other lying movie stars inflated arnies height to make their lies look true. Sly always said he was 6-2 so he could claim 5-10+. Next to a legit 6-2 man arnie looks 6-1 at absolute most. 6.0-5 peak

I doubt Ed O'Ross was even a full 5"11' at his peak = Click Here = here in 1994(Another Midnight Run) at around 1:21 he's standing next to Jeffrey Tambor(6"0.5') slouching a lot,only the top of his cap is the same height as Jeffrey's top of head.
Hopping hopper said on 30/Jul/19
6-0.5 peak. 6-2 in terminator with biker boots on. He’s probably not a full 5-11 today so he was never 6-1.5 peak. Lost is too much,3 inches!! That’s board line critical bone and spine health territory. 6.0-5 peak definitely no more.

@Johan 185cm pic proves he was 6'1" 1/2 in peak. Nice find.

------------

He actually looks taller than I expected, maybe Vince did get a good measurement after all. 3 inches taller than Weider and with 2cm shoe disadvantage. I do think its possible that Weider was 5'9.5"-5'9.75" but even then that puts Arnold over 6'1" peak. 6'1.25"-6'1.5" peak.


@ Pierre

He looks there as expected 8.5 inches shorter than a 6'7.5"-6'7.75" guy. Still holding onto 5'11" while he can look as low as 5'10.5" at times in other pics.

Remember Arnold is also barefoot next to Joe in those competition pics. He still has 3" on him so minimum 6'0.5" but then there is Joe's footwear to take into account.

Here's your Arnie/Weider pic, only straightened... Click Here We don't know how big Weider's heels are, and for all we know, this could be a morning height for our good friend, Arnie.

Here they are in similar circumstances (1968)... Click Here A 21-year-old Arnie vs. a 49-year-old Weider.

Here's 5'9" (listed 5'10") Weider w/ 5'9" (billed 5'10") Bruno Sammartino and 5'8" (listed 5'10") Sergio Oliva... Click Here

Oliva and Arnie, both barefoot... Click Here

Weider and Arnie, both barefoot (1973)... Click Here



Arnie does look tall -- when he's obviously wearing lifts. Here he is w/ maybe 6'7.5" Hafthor, only looking like a little hobbit from "Lord of the Rings"... Click Here


So, like I said: Arnie is now max 5'10.5" and was max 6'0.5". If Weider was ever close to 5'9.5", it was definitely as a peak and not during the 1970s.

@Pierre - Now he's about 5 ft 11, as your photos show. Yes, if he is saying 6 ft 1 'now' then it's untrue, but that doesn't take away from what he has said before he was shrinking. Maybe he is an ageing denier rather than a height denier in that respect! Living in the past. 15 years can fly by! He is 70, and he seemed to shrink a lot in his 60s. Some people do genetically. CDs - If I have any other theory, it's his strangely large hips and almost bandy legs. He's almost pigeon toed at the same time, and it's more and more noticeable from about Total Recall onward. His legs are sort of disconnected from the gait of his upper body. He's not a natural, flexible athlete like Stallone for example. I'm not sure how strange hips make you predisposed to shrink, but I guess what I'm saying is that he had a definitely imperfect body, and it was bound to catch up with him in late middle age, regardless of bodybuilding.

CDS said on 20/Jul/19
If what texluh below is saying, about what Arnold once said in an interview, is accurate, and it sure sounds right to me, then it goes right along with what I initially thought about his height. That the 6'2" listing was an in-shoes height, and he's around 6'1" barefoot. So it could very well be, from that interview texluh described, that his out of bed height is 6'2" (says he was only measured that once or twice in his life), his mid morning height is 6'1.5" (what Vince emailed Rob about), what he's measured on a good day, and his main end of day height is maybe a little over 6'1". Now he says some days he's barely 6'1", so that might mean he's that height after some really heavy activity, and being a body builder, that activity obviously is going to be a lot heavier than most have. Of course, this would all be his peak height since he's obviously down to under 6' today, probably in the 5'11" zone. Texluh, I think you've probably finally nailed it!
texluh said on 19/Jul/19
The thing about Arnold, and what makes him more interesting than the average 'politician', is that he will regularly tell little lies, but occasionally be full on with honest, self effacing detail. Much like Muhammad Ali. I wish I could find the Internet interview again. But at some point in the last couple of decades, he said... 'I was never 6 ft 2. I see that written down, but I'm 6 ft 1 or a little over. I've measured myself many times in the morning and on a good day I'm 6 ft 1 and a 1/2 and on another day I'm barely 6 ft 1. But one day i measured myself and, unbelievably, I was 6 ft 2'. (he may have said this happened twice in his life). I hope to find the interview again. It's interesting to me as my height works on the exact same parameters ie I achieved 6 ft 2 once or twice, inexplicably. I didn't imagine the interview either! It's much like a magazine interview once in the 90s where he told a tale about being out for drinks with his bodybuilder mates in the late 60s or early 70s, and Mike Katz slept on the sofa with his super-wide shoulders, and Arnold and his other friend were still awake in hysterics, because Mike was sleeping on his side and 'his head was just hanging there'.

As far as vinces classic 6'1.5" measurement of arnie, there seems to be an awful lot of debate about him being that tall. Is it possible, for a moment, that when measuring him with the stadiometer, he didn't press it firmly down to his skull, but instead, maybe just kept it comfortably at his hair, which would actually leave room for anywhere from a half inch to an inch of error? Would make an awful lot of sense for all the comments that Arnold is actually only anywhere from a peak height of 6' to 6'1"? Especially, if Arnold had a photo shoot coming up, which he did quite a lot back then?

Yeah he probably just didn't touch his head with the stadiometer. It's pointless to pretend like a measurement, just because it's official and done by a doctor is automatically reliable; we all know quite well their common incompetence even in doing such a simple task as that. That's why I think that Rob is deeply wrong in trusting official measurements as much as he does (but I'm glad that he downgraded Wade at least, despite that (ridiculous) official measurement).

--------------

I used to think 6'1.25" was possible and they rounded up a bit but after seeing him with so many others 6'1" flat looks more likely. He only had 2" on a 5'11" peak Belushi in Red heat and he did look shorter than 6'2" James Cameron/ George Bush Snr.

He could get away with it at times as he has a huge collection of cowboyboots and we all know you can look an inch taller with that kind of footwear. He would have been very close to 6'3" in boots depending on the model.

------------

Except millions of people do lose height in their 50's some even earlier. Medical publications support this, anecdotal evidence is useless.

Arnold would be on the top end of height loss but it is possible. You should also take a look at Dolph Lundgren, also a fit guy who lost an easy 4-5cm.

At 48 yrs old you shouldn't have lost anything yet, in your 50's 1cm and at 60 1cm is quite normal shrinkage. You have outliers who only lose a few mm's and the other side who lose maybe a good inch or more.

70's though it can be a huge difference, i know a few guys from work who are still close to their peak while others have 5 cm loss.

6-0 is too low.

6-1 minimum. The 6-1.5 measurement at night by a guy who hated Arnold backs up that he looked 6-1 usually with others

Not sure about that being a night measurement. Could have been very early morning as Arnold had the typical regime of getting his first workout in the early hours. I highly doubt 6'1.5", unless Vince didn't shove it down on his skull but leave it on hair.

W/ all due respect to ppl w/ a dissenting opinion, the pic w/ Sally Fields 100% proves he was never 6'1", let alone 6'1.5". I prefer photographic evidence, not the word of someone, a fan of his or otherwise, who claims he measured Arnie at a so-and-so height. Also, my previous post of Arnie w/ 5'9" Leroy Colbert shows him looking shorter than ppl want him to be.

There are so many celebrities out there who exaggerated their heights in the past it's very difficult to pinpoint their genuine heights, and now their old, shrinkage has to be taken in to account too. But nowdays it's more difficult for them to get away with it so they have to be more honest and upfront about their heights, for example Dwayne Johnson originally listid as 6ft5 knew he could not get away with claiming this height when he became more famous, so he changed to what was a more realistic height for him of 6ft3,but if he had of being around in the fifties,sixties, seventies,eighties and even up till the mid nineties he could have gotten away with the 6ft5 claim, and then in old age just have said he shrank more than average because of his lifestyle, with all the heavy lifting and injuries he suffered during his career. To be honest I think Arnold was a somewhere between 6ft and 6ft1 peak.

6-0 is too low.

6-1 minimum. The 6-1.5 measurement at night by a guy who hated Arnold backs up that he looked 6-1 usually with others
Pierre said on 12/Jul/19
Charles Meshak is listed 6"4' , you can see in the airplane scene he tower Arnold ,he's not even standing straight when he's standing at the same distance to the camera as Arnold(at around 0.15 use eventually the low speed) Click Here In the airport scene we can see their shoes they are looking very similar even the color if my memory is good!

Tom Arnold is not 6"1' he's around the same height as Rob Lowe(5"10') Click Here or Bill Paxton( Click Here ) and even looks shorter than him Click Here Click Here .In True Lies Arnold looks one hair taller than Tom = Click Here Click Here Click Here that gives to Arnold always max 6"0' .James Cameron next to Bill Paxton does not look really 6"2' more 6"1'= Click Here Click Here . Arnold closer to the camera looks shorter than Evander Click Here and later bigger difference because Arnold has probably lost a fraction of height = Click Here .Arnold looks the same height as Carl Weather in Predator in the famous scene " arm wrestling" but the camera is always in a terrible angle that favor Arnold,in an event Carl looks taller than him Click Here even when Arnold is standing closer to the camera Click Here

Has anybody watch Commando? Well by that time the making of the movie was in 1984 and released in 1985. Arnold was just 37 years old and he was in his peak. He looks somewhere 6'0 to 6'0.5. The black guy looks 6'3 in the movie the airport scene the long hair black guy is abut 6'3 at most and has 3 inches on Arnold. Arnold was never over 6'0.5 in his life.
That guy's name is Charles meshack and he was 6'4"
criss said on 11/Jul/19
6'1.25, he was shorter than 6'2 guys (Bush Sr, Cameron) with about 1 inch, he was about the same height with 6'1 guys like Tom Arnold, Evander or Weathers
Pierre said on 11/Jul/19
@Animus= Arnold 186/187 peak? And Lou ? 194? Manny Perry 191 peak?John Larroquette 197 peak? Chet Yorton 185 peak ?Vernon wells 184 peak?
Dmeyer said on 10/Jul/19
Yeah rob 6'1,25 listing will relieve many even going with 6'1,5 measurement thats 6'1 3/8 and maybe that was 11am so 6'1-1,25 IS likely by afternoon
Animus said on 10/Jul/19
Schwarzenegger was pretty clearly 186-187cm in his physical prime. With the wear and tear on his body and the passage of time, it's within reason that he has shrunken as much as he has. There's no doubt that Schwarzenegger's case of height loss is on the extreme end of the spectrum, but he did push his body exceptionally hard for years on end - to a degree that's probably unfathomable to most people.

I think a downgrade to 6'1.25 would be more realistic and make many "happy", as also suggested by the average vote...
But I guess Rob likes to stick with officially claimed measurements more...
Importer said on 9/Jul/19
I can see that he was similar to Gerald Butler in height. Never was below 185.5-186cm peak. 186.5-187cm a midday measurement. Just a simple case of a 6'1 - 6'1 1/4 guy claiming 6'2. Nobody should really get suspicious. I was surprised that a 5'9.5 guy challenged him to his claim, most can't tell 1inch difference at that height. Onscreen he could easily look 6'2 in cowboy boots, his muscles helped too I guess.
Peak : 186cm
Now : 181cm

I would bet 1 million Arnold with his head shaved and barefoot would measured max 6'0.5.

Arnold has had hip surgeries, knee surgeries, and broken his leg(s) on a couple of occasions.

It's scientifically proved that a sedentary person can lose 2 cm around 70 years old, Arnold is 72 years old this month. He was a fitness man for all his life, he's highly unlikely he lost something like 5-6 cm when a sedentary person lose on average just 2 cm. Arnold had bad injuries? Some surgeries on his spine? If he lost 5 cm already, is definitely above an average person, I'm not saying is impossible, I'm saying is highly improbable, especially for a fitness man. It's more likely and believable that Arnold never was a 186-187 cm but more like a 184 cm, and now is nothing more than 181 cm. He lied about his height and likely he used to wear lifts inside his shoe when he worked in Hollywood.

Alex, every medical journal supports 1 cm loss for every decade after 40 years on average. So by 60's 2cm is normal but by 70 it can vary greatly. Losing between 3-7.5cm is completely normal.

Arnold today looking 179 cm alot means that he was max 186.5 cm going by medical studies max but there are also exceptions due to medical conditions.

Arnold's weightlifting regime was anything but normal and so I am not surprised that he ended up in the top scale of height loss.

He was 6feet, now he is just about 5ft10
Roderick said on 6/Jul/19
I think when he was young, he would be able to measure 6'2" in shoes right out of bed, lol.

@Danimal: I don’t think Hogan has really lost 4”. He’s still around 6’3” today in some pics. Peak Hogan tho I don’t think a full 6’6”. Maybe 6’5.5. I agree Arnold peak 6’1” barefoot is realistic and today 5’10 or 11
Mr.heighty said on 5/Jul/19
@Rob whart's your thought on Alex 6'3.25 said on 5/Jul/19?
I honestly agree from A to Z what he said. At least makes sense believing this which actuallly Arnold looked always on the 6'0 range in the 70's and never over 6'05
Editor Rob
While he sometimes could seem 184cm, I still would be surprised if you measured him that low in the 70's and 80's.
Mr.heighty said on 5/Jul/19
Alex 6'3.25 said on 5/Jul/19
Yep but what is amazing is that Rob who is always pretty accurate on heights and he is an expert on heights guess Arnold at 186 cm at his low and 187 his highest guess.
I agree all you have said Arnold was about 184 and probably lost 4-5 cm like from 184 to 179-180.
Rob's opinion makes Arnold lost 7 cm which is impossible. He lost 5 cm max and of course never looked even over 6'1.
Pierre said on 5/Jul/19
Young Lou Ferrigno next to tall guys looks around 6"3' and nothing over that,Arnold next to Lou both barefoot looks around 3 inches smaller than him ...Do the maths again...
Pierre said on 5/Jul/19
@Johan= When is your comparison in the video?Are they exactly in the same posture?Where is the camera?(Both at equal distance?)when you look at the gates at head height behind them at 34:41 / 34:42 you can clearly watch the difference.No bad angle here= Giulianno 181 give Serge Nubret maybe 177,nothing over.

I think Rob's listing will never change guys! Don't waste your time saying he was 6'0.5 which I really agree. I think he was never more than 6'0.5 but Rob's listing is what counts... ;(

Comparisons Arnold/Serge Nubret .I doubt Serge was even 5"11' more 5"10' imo.In the movie" Titan"(or " My Son the Hero )Serge Nubret looks clearly shorter than Giuliano Gemma listed 5"11.25'(181) = Click Here = make pauses at around 34:41 34:42 (with the low speed,easier)=they are face to face in same posture at exactly the same distance to the camera .And watch the gates at height weight behind them...There is clearly a difference of height.

Not seeing much difference there and when they shake hands their eyes are level.

Serge was listed from 5'10-6' in imperial but always 180 cm regardless of the imperial. Maybe a 5'10.75" guy but no less.

@Johan The pic w/ Sally Fields from 1976 where they're both barefoot and Arnie is 29 is pretty much a smoking gun. He was never more than 6'0.5", end of story.

---------

Shame he is looking down and not standing straight, Sally is stretching up as well. It for sure kills any chance of him ever being 6'1.5"+ but 6'1" is still possible. He looks it when younger next to Serge.
