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.

He’s got that massive chest, he would’ve been a mad wwe wrestler if he really wanted to
Rising174cm said on 22/Jan/21
While I do believe Arnold's 6'1.5" evening measurement occurred, it's worth noting that Vince Basille also claimed Arnold's arms measured 21.5" even though I'm pretty sure Arnold's arms may have just scraped 20" in his prime in reality.

That said, I do think there's enough evidence of Arnold looking 186 cm or taller than just a flat 6'1" into the 80s and even the 90s.

However, he could already look as short as 179-180 range as far back as 7 years ago with 5'10" George's St Pierre here: Click Here and at times in this clip with 5'8.25" James Corden from 6 years ago: Click Here I suspect some of that is posture since he could still look over 5'11" more recently, but I don't dismiss the possibility of under 5'11" by this point.

6.0-75 max peak. Now a weak 5-11.

@Rampage Clover, it’s no dark secret that most celebs were listed 1-2cm too high to begin with, @Editor Rob is actually nice 👍

Arnies stats were something like this
184cm
95kg
8% bodyfat

I’m strong I could roid like arnie but there’s no point I’ve got better things to do like get smarter
Alan mctavish said on 16/Jan/21
I always thought arnie was about 6' 2" to 6' 3" about 30 years ago. I was age only 17 then and hes muscular frame did blind me into thincking arnie was 6' 2" to 6' 3" at most. Becouse i was 6ft at age 17 and i couldnt believe this man was just an inch taller than me. I just couldnt see it. But friends told me camera angles make him look 6' 5" and bigger!!!!

I have peak Arnold somewhere in that 184CM range

Rob do you think now currently being even older There’s a chance he’s shrunk more and is more 5’10 12-5’10 7/8

5 cm yes. 6 cm no. If he stands tall for a measurement is impossible he lost more than that. Overall he looks healthy and strong and Bodybuiling is a thr key for bone density and if you do it properly is benefit for joints, bones, etc.
Arnold lucky If was 185 cm in his peak. Now in 2020-2021 I'd say he is closer to 180 if he stands tall but maybe closer to 179 who knows. I'm sure that's his range.
If he ever or if he really was 186 or 187 he would look on many occasions closer to 6'3 in movies and in photos due to angles and footwear. So the truth is Arnold was maybe 185 and nothing over this mark. I would argue 184 range for sure

I do believe that ferrigno was a solid 6ft3 in his prime and he was 3 inches taller than arnold, I also just saw a video of arnold with Jay Leno and he appeared only an inch taller making him 6ft, and there are many examples more that indicate he was never over 6f0.5, arnold being any thing over 6ft0.5 is a big lie,but still people will believe he was near 6ft2 even rob himself, guess Arnold larger than life image is blinding people thoughts

I'd say solid 6'1 in his peak, today he's probably closer to 5'11-6'0 range. In fact, I recently saw a photo of Arnie with Clint Eastwood on Instagram in a photo where the two are at eye level with each other, says a lot about their current heights.

Editor Rob

Ian C. said on 6/Jan/21
I will admit, Slim, to being an Arnold detractor, so if I disagree with your assessments of Arnold' capacities, there is a certain amount of hostile prejudice involved. Young Arnold had artificially inflated muscles, developed as a result of near-psychotic weightlifting regimens coupled with steroid use. I defy you to find a single five-second sequence in any of his movies where he moves quickly and nimbly. Conan the Barbarian, as Arnold played him, is about the clumsiest swordsman who ever lived. Bruce Lee could have written his autograph on Conan's sword as Conan swung it. Arnold does run in The Running Man. Tom Cruise could have passed him running backwards.

You should see the list of surgeries Arnold has endured so far. As an old man he's a wreck. Shoulders, knees, hips, and of course, heart. Right now I can do more push-ups than Arnold can, and I am old and skinny.

Bodybuilders are just guys who ruin their bodies in the service of competing in bizarre beauty contests. They make themselves weak (and sometimes even dead) in the service of looking weird.

The most heroic looking men you're ever going to see are NFL running backs, and none of them have that grotesque, inflated look that Arnold displayed when he was Mr. Olympia.
Guest66 said on 4/Jan/21
Rob I'm really curious, is there a rock solid evidence of him being absolutely no less than 6'1" at his peak ? I always thought there was a good chance of him being 6'0.5" range guy during his prime.
Editor Rob
there is evidence to suggest he could look a 6ft 1/2 to 1 range guy on a lot of occasions...but looking and measuring are different.

Has this person got 'height in the tank'.

we have at least one person claiming arnie cleared 6ft 1 for a measurement. Was it a legit measurement or could there be room for error...might Arnie have just been 6ft 1-1.25 peak?

many would say that's all he seemed to be...

Forgot to mention last night I was watcHing Pumping Iron (1977) . What a great movie for motivation representing the Golden Era in Bodybuilding where Physiques were really Aesthetic and not as huge and terrible as nowadays were you can see they look so terrible and over muscular... Well Arnold looked pretty big and clearly he shrunk but never looked a legit 6'1 to me.
He had a great posture for sure and due his muscular physique he looked so big but I'd say he was a typical 184 guy 6'0.5 for Arnie but maybe pushing 6'0.75 at lunch!

179-180cm current
No. I can tell you he is just below 180. He is max 179 trust me. I now 2 guys who met him during hours not just 1 min. I've seen photos and photos and here in this website last year the legit 6'2.25 guy posted a good photto next to Arnold and he was 4 inches on him maybe more than 4. He said Arnold is somewhere 178-179 5'10.25-5'10.5 and clearly under 5'11-
I just said he was maybe 5'11 in 2016-2017 or weak 5'11 those years. Nowdays he is without doubt 178 range-179

I think he fact here is in terminator in the biker boots he was perhaps 6-2. This is a common thing with people when describing their height. They seldom say I’m 6-2 barefoot. I’m 6-3 and when asked I say 6-3. Then they reply you look taller. Exactly because I am I’m my Nike trainers. He was imo my humble opinion 6.0.5 barefoot.

@Rampage:
He could look under 6’1” a good amount in his peak, but if measured I agree with you he would be 6’1” minimum.
Rising174cm said on 30/Dec/20
Vince Basille did specifically say the 6'1.5" measurement was in the evening. Now whether one finds that believable is a different matter. He did look a bit taller than 6'1" flat guys, but was shorter than Robert Davi in Raw Deal and Davi was not even 6'2". I'd be very curious to hear how tall Brigitte Nielsen thought Arnold and Dolph Lundgren were back in 1985.

Joeb is a 6'2.25 man who has met some popular and famouse guys. He posted photos here next Arnold and he really said Arnold is a 178-179 man or 5'10.25-5'10.5 in 2019. Just take a look. Those photos are in this site. So those who still say Arnold is 5'11 at least are wrong. He was just 5'11 till 2017.
And I forgot to mention Joeby is 6'2.25 and he had easily 4 inches on Arnold. He also guess he was never close to 6'2 but a weak 6'1 possible
Jobey was wearing a very thick shoes that that day
juanmi178 said on 27/Dec/20
My final guess is that Arnold was somewhere between 6'0.75-6'1. Height lost is progression and faster when you are in your 60's and 70's.
During the 90's when he became more famous in the movies he was probably a strong 6'0.5 guy (solid 184 range).
In the 2000's he was about 182-183 cm or 5'11.5-6'0 range. Then in the decade 2010-2020 he went probably from 181 to 179 cm (5'11.25 to 5'10.5)
These guesses make sense to me so we all know you lose height faster and more whrn you are in your 60's and 70's but in Arnold's case due to his injuries etc he just lost more height than an average man.
Peak: 6'0.75 not a mm over
2020: 5'10.5
berta said on 26/Dec/20
i think 185 is more realistic height for his peack. sometimes he did look 6 feet 3/4
juanmi178 said on 25/Dec/20
Robert Patrick was 5'11 in his peak and Arnold was never over 2 inches on him but 1 and a half ok.. So do the math. In 1990 when Terminator 2 was recording Robert Patrick there is 180-180.5 (5'11) so Arnold can't be over 184-184.5 (6'0.5 max) in 1990. And probably Arnold has foot advantage wearing boots and seem to be closer to the camera. So knowing is 1990 and Arnold was still young he was in his peak or so close.

Arnold has had 2 hip replacements,very common to lose a bit of height when u have that done. That combined with spinal compression u can lose alot.Dave Prowse also had a hip replacement and ended up alot shorter than he was.
Cb91 said on 23/Dec/20
184.5cm is what he looked in 1985 in commando, wearing boots next to rae Dawn chong. Looked the same height in 1975 with lucille ball, the same height in 1977 with Tommy Boyd who probably isn't the 5ft 8 he is listed.

So I'd say he's consistently 184.5cm throughout the 10 year period I've just given. 28-38 years old I'd consider his prime.

Solid 5'10 nowadays. I know a couple of friends telling me he is below 5'11 just because they were taller than him and one is 5'11.25 and the other one 5'11.5. Both visit Fitness and strong man events.
I've seen a lot of photos and Arnold look to be in the 5'10 range to my eyes. With his best posture I can't see him currently in 2020 over 5'10.5.
So more realistic 5'10.5 nowadays and peak 6ft0.25 range. I just can't see him ober 6'0.5 barefoot. His hair and shoe advantage do the rest. He never was a legit 6'1 guy neither 6'0.75 barefoot. A lost of 2 inches in his case is possible. Overall 2 inches is a lot considering he is still "young" 73 y.o.
Average men at 73 loose 3/4 inch to 1.5 inch.

Click Here @Pierre,I've seen the pic of willis and Hanks before and have to agree if Hanks was 6 ft than by comparison Willis is somewhere between 5 ft9 and 10,which would leave Arnold looking more a 6ft flat guy in comparison,as for Sly he is very fond of wearing heels and has a repution for wearing suspect footwear, and could look a solid 6ft in comparison to,for example Tom Selleck in the pic I posted.The thing about Willis is his peak is only half an inch less than Hanks,but he looks a weak 5ft10 in the pic you posted,maybe his peak height needs a downgrade,or Hanks needs an upgrade because something is not adding up??

It can be seen from this photo that Prince Edward is 6 feet tall. Although Arnold was nearly sixty-year-old at that time, he is still very likely to be a legal 6'2", but I don’t know how long it has been until today. , Arnold will actually become short 😢

I met Arnold by chance in a restaurant he co-owned in 1993 when I was in high school. I am a 5’10” woman and was fully grown at the time. We stood up to shake his hand, and when I did, I was taller than him. It struck me so I have never forgotten. If I was wearing running shoes, I may have gained a half inch, and he was relaxing, and may not have been standing as tall. Sometimes I perceive men who are the same height as being shorter, but there is no way he was taller than 5’11, and probably closer to 5’9.
TheBat said on 7/Dec/20
6’1.25” peak is more likely the case than 6’0.5” peak. Sure he’s looked shorter than that back in the day at times but more often than not he looked around 185-186cm at his peak. These days he looks max 5’11”.
Pierre said on 6/Dec/20
This old pics show always the same thing=not as tall as 6"1.5' or even close to this mark

@J2Frenzy I am willing to bet he’s on PEDS, though he probably won’t admit it for personal/legal reasons. He could also be on Testosterone Replacement Therapy and SARMS. His bodyfat is high though it seems he needs to cut down if he wants to look more toned and shredded.

Not sure where people are getting the low peak estimates from. He is a minimum 186cm and could easily be 187cm. He is probably only 178cm range today.

6-0.5 peak. Now weak 5-11.

Looking at the pictures of him standing next to Mackenzie Davis during the promo junctions for the last Terminator film, he's either exactly her height or she's slightly taller in the photos with them together. They were wearing comparable footwear (heeled boots) in many of those shots.
J2Frenzy said on 26/Nov/20
@houss regardless of whether it’s fat or muscle you are heavy for your height. That’s probably why you lose a lot. I’m 189cm afternoon 95kg 11.5%bf as of Sunday morning (so not exactly a small light guy myself) and lose 2cm, or 2.5cm for extreme low
Cb91 said on 25/Nov/20
Also the lucille ball sketch with Arnold as a masseuse disproves the 6ft 2 claim. She's 5ft 6.5 plus 6 inches of height difference, both are wearing flats. That was in 1975. So 6ft 0. 5 again.
Cb91 said on 25/Nov/20
@Hong, it's 4.5 inches from eyebrows to top of head. Boyds head reaches Arnold's eyebrows from what I can see.
Canson said on 25/Nov/20
In his prime he could’ve been a hair over 6’1” but not half. I could buy 6’1 1/8” maybe. He had thick hair so not sure if that was valid in addition to the variable of when he was actually measured time of day
Hong said on 25/Nov/20
Click Here @Cb91 He looks a solid 5 inches taller than that guy too me.

185cm peak is more believable than 184cm peak.
Cb91 said on 24/Nov/20
In 1977 with Tommy Boyd from magpie, weight training exercises. I can see 4-4.5 inches. Assuming Google is correct listing Tommy at 5ft 8 then that makes Arnold 6ft 0.5 inches max. So the same height as he appears in commando which is 11 years later. No height loss.

Arnold has a very strange body today. It looks like his torso collapsed. His legs still looks long but his torso looks very short and compressed nowdays. At his peak I would say 6’1.5 (taller than reg Park, Dave Draper, ken Waller, mike katz). Today I don’t think he is over 5’11

People, Arnold was measured at 6'1.5" barefoot at night in 1969 by a man who has gone on record saying that he does not like Arnold. Why is this so hard to comprehend by so many? That is the bare minimum he stood at his very peak height. Today at 73 years old and after decades of compressing his spine with heavy weight lifting, plus having had hip replacement and possibly back surgery, he is lucky if he can hit 5'10" today.

And for those saying 6'1.5 is too high for a prime Arnold I believe he could hit that mark boosting a gut. Today they measure my height and I did the same to see how much I could inflate my height. My real height is 174 cm and when I measured myself boosting a gut I was 175.8 cm.
Arnold was probably just under 6'1 barefoot or a weak 6'1 guy. 185 cm would be the most I'd guess.

I READ THAT ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER WAS MEASURED IN THE AUSTRIAN ARMY AT 178CM.

The last thing - sorry, but I don't believe in Vince Basile's words. He claimed not only tat Arnold was 6'1.5" tall, but also that Arnold has 21.5 inches bicep. Which was ofc not true.

probably an advantage of shoe on Mister T

Agree @Rob. What do you think?
Tim said on 12/Oct/17
I dont know if people here read.. Legit 6'2 guys like James Cameron were more than 1 inch on Arnold. Cameron claim he is 6'2 so imagine he is a real 6'1.75 he still got at least 1 inch on Arnold in 1990-1991. No chance he was never ever in his life over 6'1. In his 20's was very close. So there's no discusion safe to say he was at most 6'0.75

Rob how much does look Arnold here? The left guy is 175 cm tall. His name is Bill Pearl listed at 5'9". As I said Arnold was never 6'1 range.
Editor Rob
He can look barely 6ft
realone1 said on 21/Sep/20
Guys stop the video at 1:23 and 1:27. We know Carl Weathers was a legit 6'1 guy peak and he is slouching walking next to Arnold while Arnold is closer to the camera and his posture is much better standing tall. Arnold seem to be 3/4 inch shorter than Carl. Arnold's peak was 6'0.5 max. This is the truth.

@viper: I believe he was measured around 6'1.5", I just also think he could look only 6'1"-6'1.25" at times in his prime such as with Robert Davi so I leave open the possibility that he wasn't at his low or some other variable. That said, he could certainly look 6'1.5" with Carl Weathers, Roger Moore, Tom Arnold and others so maybe it was accurate.

As for today, well the last time I really looked at Arnold compared to others with heights listed on this website was 2018 and I thought he mostly looked 5'11"-5'11.25" range then. For instance, I didn't think he looked shorter than DiCaprio, whom I think is about 5'11" flat. That said, I had already seen Arnold look under 5'11" or 5'10.5"-5'10.75" at best back in this photo from 2014: Click Here I'll leave it to Rob how much of that is posture, but considering I have to look pretty closely and at the top of their heads to determine who is taller, Arnold is not even a full inch taller there. Of course, I've seen DiCaprio look as short as 5'10.5" range before. Not saying he is, but...

I could see and argument of a 6'1 peak but I'd say 6'0.75 peak at a very hight guess more 6'0.5. This is a more reasonable guess. Lost 2 inches max. No way he lost 3 inches watcking his proportions. You can't imagine how muvch is 2 inches even tho

@animal 176.7cm said on 19/Sep/20
Yes.. so what? Even seeing how compressed is is impossible he ever was 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 being nowadays 5'10.25 range because that's his real height in 2020. He is 5'10.25 and back in 2014 was 5'11. Strugging with 6'1 peak knowing this and looking at him. He still holds great.
realone1 said on 19/Sep/20
Carl Weathers peak: 185.5-185.8 cm
Arnold's peak: 184.5 cm max

Arnie edged out both Carl Weathers and Tom Arnold (who most agree were solid 6ft1ers themselves). Also an easy 2in Bill Paxton
Pierre said on 19/Sep/20
Hip surgery seems to me does not reduce the leg .Imo if it was the case all the people who have only one side surgery would have a leg shorter than the other that would be a problem .If my memory is good Sarah Douglas had hip surgery and she had even gain height after her surgery.

Arnold's bust was not particularly tall when he was young= here Arnold next to Chet Yorton (5"11')(Chet is the left tall guy in the pic, around same height as Arnold and standing next to him ) = Click Here
Danimal 176.7cm said on 19/Sep/20
This was posted a few days ago by Arnold himself. It's him doing some bent over rows with a barbell and then curling the barbell. You can see when he's leaning over his truck to pull out the weight how much shorter his legs/hips are than they used to be (due to his hip replacement surgery where they cut the femur bone...same thing happened to Hogan and Lou Ferrigno). You can also see how compressed his upper body has become. A lot of spinal fusion going on. Anyway, he's the new video (uploaded by someone else): Click Here

Rising, I'd be surprised If Arnold is
5-11.

Most he can be is 5-10.25-5-10.5 imo

I agree. I'm leaning more today 5'10 1/8" today.
realone1 said on 18/Sep/20
@Rob. Nobody has figured out when the are walking (1:23) right after the handshake. Carl Weathers is not standing tall there just with a relax posture while Arnold is standing tall. Arnold is closer to the camera too. What do you guess now? Some time ago I thought they were around the same height but now I'm sure Carl Weathers edged him by 1/2 or 3/4 inch.

realone1 said on 18/Sep/20
Rob. Yesterday I watched Predator and I can confirm Arnold was slightly shorter than Carl Weathers.
Click Here
First of all when Arnold is staring at Carl he is looking higher while Carl Weather not. If you paused the video when they handshake Carl Weathers chin is higher than Arnold's (1:04) and shoulder is also higher than Arnold's. Right after that when the both walk together you can see Arnold walks standing tall while Carl Weathers is walking forward head posture and he is loosing height right there. 1:23 CarL Weathers is taller. I see his proportions longer too.
To conclude I say Carl Weathers peak was 6'1-6'1 1/8 and Arnold was over 6.0 but below 6'1. 6'0.5 max.

Alir?za said on 18/Sep/20
You are wrong. Carl Weathers was a legit strong 6'1 guy and Rob met him and can confirm and Arnold was shorter.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have said in Carl looked taller, they seemed within same kind of range and Weathers I think was a decent 6ft 1 then.
Alir?za said on 18/Sep/20
I think he was 6'1.25 or 6'1.5

He always claimed to be 6'2" when he was younger but I don't think he was.

Rob, how did Arnold lose so much height? He works out. When you are strong and workout, aren't you supposed to retain more of your height?
Editor Rob
Excessive lifting puts tremendous strain on the discs and joints, so you increase chances of losing more height

He's also had hip replacement surgery, resulting in a shorter femur bone and he's had back surgery (spinal fusion), but yes, heavy weight lifting for decades does permanently compress the discs in the spinal column, as well as the other joints in the body (ankles, knees, and hips). He's also well into his 70's so there's height loss from that as well. All of that combined has resulted in his 3.5" height loss.


@Danimal = Fact is we have only a measurement on a paper with a height gauge that we don't know while we have a large number of pic of a young Arnold by the years(in his 20/30/40/50 years old)next to lots of celebrities that show Arnold a lot under this measurement.

Mike Oheran has been doing so heavy exercises since he was 15 years old and he is 51 now! Dead Lifts and squats. He's been lifting 700-800 pounds for years on dead lift and just take a look at his height. He has not lose nothing!

The 6-1.5 measurement is legit.

Vince didn't care for him and all the guys who were measured were half an inch lower than their claim.

This measurement was at night. Arnold may have been lying down for quite a while or he doesn't shrink much at all. He does have long legs and a shorter torso.

He looks too tall to have been just 6-0.

Arnold was 6-1 Minimum

Absolutely. People don't realize how tall he was in his prime. They want to guess he wasn't taller that 6'0" range based on his current height (5'10" at best), but the reality is that he was a TALL man (between 6'1" and 6'1.75" depending on the time of day).

This listing gotta be changed! I see enough evidence about Arnold's real height and I agree. He has always been overlisted. He was 6'0-6'0.25 barefoot. Rob being honest don't you really think Arnold was shorter than 6'1? I clearly see it by photos and videos. He never was over 6'0.25 barefoot. Shoes, lifts angles tricks make the rest.
If he would look really was 6"1' we would not here to debate 6"1.5. He was below this mark without doubt.
Editor Rob
I think in Arnie's case he generally could look about 6ft 1 peak, so the measurement could always be busting a gut or he had a fraction of extra height in the tank to get 6ft 1.5

Click Here Arnold and The Rock both straight at 0:07 0:09 Arnold a bit closer tothe camera that is low and advantage him.Since 0:17 The Rock really shrunk to be around same height as Arnold and still is comfortably taller .

6’0.5 peak maybe?
