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.

Before commenting. why don't you read old comments? and watch photos with a legit 5'11 guy and other with a legit 6'2 guy who said Arnold is 5'10-5'10.5 nowdays? That 6'2 guy was about 4 inches taller than Arnold. 5'11.25 in 2019 is a joke. Arnie was maybe 5'11.25 10 years ago

In recent pictures of a T2 reunion , Arnie looked a little bit shorter than Robert Patrick

Wow Arnold got downgraded to 5’11 flat, honestly I still see him over the Mark. There’s no way he could have lost almost 2.5 inches at 72... I give him 5’11.25

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!

6.0-5 peak. Now weak 5-11
Johan 185 cm said on 9/Aug/19
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.
Sotiris Gravas said on 3/Aug/19
@triplemagnum Funny how I referred to Arnie as a hobbit from "Lord of the Rings" (26/Jul/19) prior to Sly's Instagram post where he says Arnie "recently changed his diet and became a HOBBIT!!!" Click Here

So, maybe they do visit CelebHeights. Maybe a good many celebs do...

I'll refrain from saying "Big Brother" is watching, given the height loss.

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

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

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.

Still 5'11" today with 6'7.75" Thor.

Arnold back in the day with 5'10" Joe Weider who was maybe 5'9.5" although documented at 177.5 cm.

This kills the 6'0" crowds claim, he is barefoot and Weider has shoes on. He actually looks 6'1.5" here.

Taller than I expected.

Click Here Click Here =here you can see clearly a slimer difference between the top of their heads.Others = Click Here here = Click Here = both very probably in shoes Arnold forces his posture,Joe advanced in age = Click Here = the right guy,Robbie Robinson listed 5"7' looks just a little bit shorter than Joe here...Click Here =here a young Joe Weider with Georges Eifferman listed 5"7',and Joe apparently wear comfortably heels here....Click Here =the same Robby Robinson(5"7')very probably barefoot like the other bodybuilders next to Arnold in shoes....My guess is always around 6"0' for Arnold peak

Arnold was listed 186cm in powerlifting stats. I believe that is his correct peak height. With early morning forced posture he probably was 187cm. Nowadays hits 180cm.

@Johan 185 cm

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?

@Johan = But all the comparisons i posted Arnold and others celebrities,even sometimes celebrities in pics next to Rob(ex= Vernon Wells) are always giving Arnold around 6"0' in the 1970s 1980s 1990s or 2000s.I don't see a big loss of height for him by this years

@Dmeyer=Tom Arnold 6"1'? Lot's of comparisons are showing he's around 5"11'.Here is another comparison= Tom next to Joe Manganiello = Click Here .Now the height chart of Joe/Rob = Click Here = the 6"0' mark matche with his eyes 5"10' with the top of his noise.I don't take even in consideration Joe had a fraction more shoes here.And he's standing straighter next to Rob and Jenny than next to Tom Arnold .....Tom in this pic(2017) was in his 58 i doubt he lost a lot of height .In other comparisons Bill Paxton /Tom Arnold ,the result is the same = he looks a little bit shorter than Bill and the pic was taken in 2002,Tom was only 43 here Click Here .In an old pic next to Rob Lowe(5"10') same result = he looks around 5"11' never 6"1' Click Here = you can see Tom slouch but Rob Lowe break his bust to go in the pic .And more recently around the same difference between Tom /Rob = Click Here .My guess is always Tom Arnold 5"11' Arnold peak around 6"0'

@Johan
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.

Imo the bodybuilders were more or less all advantaged with their official heights.i want to say some of this bodybuilders were listed 6"0' and were looking in reality something like 5"10'= this is only my own opinion but i have already posted some pics that can eventually show imo incohérences of some heights of this guys.When some of this bodybuilders have taken their measure with Vince basille's stadiometer they have lost (if my memory is good)something like 0.5 inch=but if they have lost 0.5 inch of their official heights,then the stadiometer was always around 1.5 inches too generous...Of course this is only a supposition ...that probably houss won't like very much....

Johan no one lose 1 cm around 49-50 years old, my own father, 54 years old now, didn't lose even 1 cm yet, maybe 4-5 mm, and he's a sedentary person, he's still a legit 187 cm. Around 70 years old you can expect 2 cm of height lost or a bit more, it's subjective.
------------

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.
Myself said on 15/Jul/19
@Johan
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).

@Pierre

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.

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.
Hong said on 13/Jul/19
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.
Animus said on 13/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.

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

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.

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

While he sometimes could seem 184cm, I still would be surprised if you measured him that low in the 70's and 80's.

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.

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

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.

Unless it was a shoddy measurement, I think measuring 6-1.5 at night rules out anything under 6-1 IMO

Vince Basile is a pretty honest guy and is on record for not liking Arnold at all. I'm pretty sure that 6'1.5" measurement was accurate. It could be that Arnold had been sleeping on Venice beach for an hour before his nightly workout, who knows. Either way, Rob has him 1" over his current height. He's max 5'10" today, which is a huge height loss, but ironically, his hero (Reg Park) was dwarfed by Arnold back in the 90's when Arnold awarded him a lifetime trophy and they were approximately the same height back in the late 60's. So yeah, lifting heavy weights, plus steroids, plus height reducing surgeries (spinal fusion and hip replacements), plus age, can and does knock off several inches in height. Look at Hulk Hogan. He's lost 4" and he's only 66.

Come on 6'1 is is not a noticeable difference from 6'1.5 and no one would see it. 6'0.5 is a better guess and now is 1 inch which fits better and the difference is of course more realistic
Canson said on 1/Jul/19
@Viper: that’s if he really measured that 6’1.5. He may not have. That’s also if it were barefoot and last but not least if it were a true low. Just because someone measures at night doesn’t mean it’s their low if they have been laying down. That said, I do believe he was 6’1” peak but not sure about 6’1.5

Nope not wrong, the man said it in a live interview back in the 90's that Arnold was 6'1"-6'2" while he was 6'. He didn't say then that he was the same size, anyone with eyes could see he was thin and noticeably smaller.

edit: You just pulled that from Rob's page, thats a comment from well after the time period. He put on alot of weight after 40's ofc he weighs almost the same now.

Jimbo hopper said on 29/Jun/19
A safe guess would be peak 6-0.5 or 6-1 max. Now he’s ever chance under 5-11 bare foot. I’d actually say he’s 5-10 next to Lewis Hamilton
Ian C. said on 29/Jun/19
How reliable are the measurements assigned to professional bodybuilders? Were they exaggerated, is what I'm getting at here. Arnold's chest measurement at the height of his career is given as a few inches shy of five feet, which is just huge. Bodybuilding has always seemed a little squalid to me, and I am annoyed that a man who couldn't deliver dialogue with any credibility became a movie star, but you can't argue with the proposition that Arnold possessed a magnificent beauty. It is astonishing to me that his career endured after that beauty was gone, when he had so little else to offer.
viper said on 28/Jun/19
6-1 peak, but he did measure 6-1.5 at night.

Don't know If he laid down for a while before that
rism90 said on 28/Jun/19
@Rob
However Arnold had a thicker hair sometimes the militar classic style so If you measure a young Arnold barefoot with his head shave like a perfect measurement he would had been more 6'0.75 and 6'1 tops
rism90 said on 28/Jun/19
@Rob
Nice Rob. So your guess is somewhere a low of 185.5 and a hight of 186.6 cm. I agree maybe 185 range but over 186 or 186 range seems a little higher to me.

Pierre said on 26/Jun/19
Well I mean 181 a peak Robert Patrick. I think without a doubt Robert Patrick was a 5'11 so this is important to compare height next to Arnie.. Safe to say he was not less than 5'11 and not over 5'11.25. so this stimation I think is accurate
rism90 said on 27/Jun/19
@Rob In spite the "6ft 1.5" measurement from Vince Basille what's your personal guess for Arnie in the 70's?
Editor Rob
Anywhere from a low of 6ft 1 to a high of 6ft 1.5...I think most people rule out the idea of 6ft 1.5-2 range for arnie. The majority seem to guess him either 6ft 1, 1.25 or 1.5
rism90 said on 27/Jun/19
@Rob do you really think he had lost by 1990 at 43 and how much. Looks barely an inch or less on Robert Patrick..
Editor Rob
A fraction maybe by mid 40's, but generally he still seemed about 6ft 1 in the 90's.
Pierre said on 27/Jun/19
Pic Arnold/Robert Patrick( Click Here ) = When you look at the feet and shoulders Arnold is the one who is standing closer to the camera .According Arnold isn't standing perfectly straight but Robert Patrick has to watch the camera that is very low and so is not standing perfectly straight,he's standing imo a little bit more straight than Arnold.

Take a look here. Probably the best photo to figure out Arnold exact peak height. Arnold with Robert Patrick on Autumn 1990 (Making off T2) released in 1991.:
Click Here

We know Robert Patrick height at 181 cm guy, a good 5'11.25. Arnold has a liitle more advantage. He was the movie star..If both were barefoot I'd guess him here 6'0.25. Max 3 cm taller than Robert like an inch on him.
rism90 said on 24/Jun/19
Arnold looks more a strong 5'10 nowdays guys like 5'10.25 range or probably 5'10.25 before bed. He lost about 2-2.5 inches. Just watched the making off Terminator 2 and he was 6'2 with boots. When I see him barefoot looks closer to 6'0 than 6'1. This is my opinion. I'm talking about autumn 1990 so he was in his peak.. I'd guess he was 6'0.5 tops and Robert Patrick 5'11.25

Thats pretty typical of how they stack up to each other without angles and lifts being used by Stallone.

Arnie usually looks 2.5-3 inches taller than him the last few years. It did look more 4 inches in their younger years so Sly definetly lost less height.

Sly is around 5'8" today so Arnie is 5'10.5"-5'11", which he has looked with other posters and other celebs.

I think peak it was 5'9" Sly and 6'1" Arnie.

Aujourd'hui, Eric Holder (facturé à 5'11 '') se tenait à côté de Schwarzenegger pour une photo-op sur la lutte contre Gerrymandering (une chose proche du cœur de Schwarzeneggers) - les deux ont fait la pose Dillon / Dutch (Predator). Quoi qu’il en soit, regardez la hauteur des épaules des deux hommes (ne comparez pas le haut des têtes, c’est plutôt trompeur; la hauteur des épaules est plus précise), Holder n’est pas juste un peu plus grand que Schwarzenegger, mais doit aussi se pencher adapter le cadre.

Donc, en supposant que le titulaire est vraiment 5'11 '. Arnold ferait probablement 5'10 '' ou peut-être même plus petit. Je doute fort que Schwarzenegger ait jamais été un 6'2 '', comme il l'a affirmé la majeure partie de sa vie, car personne ne reculerait de 10 centimètres (3,3 pouces) sans se couper les pieds ou quelque chose du genre. Si l'image de la photo-op est crédible, si Holder est vraiment aussi grand qu'on le prétend, si les deux hommes ne portaient pas des hauteurs de talon trop différentes, alors la hauteur donnée de 5'11 en tant que Schwarzeneggers affichée sur ce site ne peut pas être précise. , parce que le titulaire est à cette hauteur mais aussi beaucoup plus grand que Schwarzenegger. Mais encore une fois: ce n’est qu’une image et nous ne les voyons que de la poitrine. Alors, qui sait quel était le contrat pour cadrer l’image de cette manière?

Today Eric Holder (billed at 5'11'') stood next to Schwarzenegger for a photo-op about combating Gerrymandering (a thing close to Schwarzeneggers heart) - both made the Dillon / Dutch pose (Predator). Anyway, look at the shoulder height of both men (don't compare the top of the heads, this is mostly misleading; shoulder height is more accurate), Holder is not just a tad taller than Schwarzenegger, but also has to lean in to fit the frame.

So, assuming Holder really is 5'11'. this would make Arnold probably a 5'10'' or maybe even smaller. I highly doubt that Schwarzenegger ever was a 6'2'' as claimed by him most of his life, because nobody would shrink down a whopping 10 centimeters (roughly 3.3 inches) without, you know, chopping off their feet or something. If the photo-op image is credible, if Holder really is as tall as it is claimed, if both men were not wearing all too different heel-heights, then the given 5'11 as Schwarzeneggers height displayed on this site, can not accurate, because Holder is at this height but also significantly taller than Schwarzenegger. But then again: It's just one image and we only see them from he chest up. So, who knows what the deal was for framing the image in this way?

By considering Arnold is standing always a little bit closer to the camera next to Bill Paxton and the special angle of the camera(watch the lines of the wall behind them,the lines are clearly not horizontal and favour Arnold ) ,Arnold has always the advantage of the camera.The pic Bill Paxton next to Josh makes me doubt he was even a complete 5"11' Click Here you can see Bill is'nt standing perfectly straight but Josh is'nt looking perfectly straight too .The debate for Arnold's peak is always open for me.Yes Tom Arnold looks taller than bill Paxton....When Tom Arnold is standing closer to the camera with a low angle of the camera like here= Click Here .Here try to guess who is looking the tallest by considering the postures and by considering the neutral angle of the camera = Click Here ...

@Johan 185 cm a 183 cm claim is a real 180 cm. Everyone has a wrong perception of a real height or gives his footwear measure. In 2014 Arnold was 180 cm and today is 179. He was 184 cm max.

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

He looked 181-182cm next to confirmed 186 Evander Holyfield just a few years ago. In 2010 he still looked 183 cm next to confirmed Chris Eubank.

He was only 3 inches shorter than 6'4" range Dolf Lundgren and had at least 2.5 inches on 5'10.5"-5'10.75" George Clooney. He also had 2 inches + on a peak Jim belushi 5'11".
ADudeHere said on 9/Jun/19
I've always heard the good old argument about Arnold's height. Now people tend to round their height depending on what they are. If you're 5'11" and some change you might round up to 6, or if you're more modest you round down to 5'11". But most people put down their height as a whole number because then you just sound like a technical asshole that's insecure about their height if you're trying to argue about fractions on an inch on your stature. But this is a big figure where the numbers are just so drastic that people claim it's laughable. In Arnold's case there are multiple reliable sources claiming that he is just slightly over 6'1". And there are plenty of photos of him in his prime walking confidently looking no shorter then 6'. Now it is obvious that the dude has shrunk. I mean you have to consider that Arnold is also in his off season weight was 260lbs and 235lbs being his lowest ever on season. Now just think for a moment how weird that'd look on the claimed 5'6"-5'11" perception people have of him.(not to mention he had that classic bodybuilder physique so I don't want to hear about people giving examples of other people being said height and weight because chances are they don't have that same body shape nor being that lean) Now it's not to say that these days he is about 5'10"-5'11" and he looks a little stumpy/disproportionate (like how his legs look in the picture provided above). But without a doubt Arnold was a little on the tall side at about 6'1.5" and maybe 6'1.75" on a good day, and he just rounded his height up to 6'2". Nor in his prime did he wear any notable advantageous footwear. The dude has long legs for god's sake wearing lifts back then would of made him look ridiculous (That's not to say that he doesn't do that now a days to compensate for his lost height when making appearances). When you're a big star like him who's fame stems from their physicality would't just rounding up about a fraction of an inch be fine for publicity sake.

Alot of your pics I don't agree with as good evidence but this video is very useful. I still believe Dolph was 6'4.25" peak and Arnie is a good 3 inches under there at all points when passing or standing next to him.

He also doesn't look taller than 6'1.25" listed Holyfield when he doesn't stand closer to the camera. Its what I have always believed that he was 6'1-6'1.25" max peak. His 6'1.75" claim is most likely a out of bed measurement.

@Sotiris = Good finds.In the video at 6:00 the camera is very low and Arnold a lot closer then i think it's a good advantage for him.In the pic/video i don't know what were his shoes ,maybe cow boy shoe,in the pic imo he looks shorter than Evander because his eyes are lower than Evander's eyes and Evander has a long forehead his eyelevel is bigger than Arnold's eyelevel so logically the top of his head is higher than Arnold's top of head.Here is a pic with Arnold standing next to a tall bodybuilder ,Spiros Bournazos who claim himself in an interview 187(6"1.5') (i don't know the shoes) = Click Here .Another Eraser promo 1996 Arnold a little bit closer to the camera so logically an advantage of camera for him(hairs don't count of course) = Click Here

Pierre, the photo I provided of Arnold and Evander was not Arnold in his absolute prime. I used to have a picture in a magazine in the late 80's/early 90's with Arnold standing right next to Evander and Arnold was slightly taller than him. Arnold was at least 6'1" during his prime. Today, he's lucky if he's a fraction over 5'10".

Always gave me the "above 6'1 but not quite 6'2" impression at his peak, so 6'1.5 is really spot on.
He was slightly taller than legit 6'1 flat guys like Carl Weathers and Tom Arnold, who funnily are taller than him nowdays (they aged better).
Nowdays he is just 5'11 flat at 70+, bodybuilders seem to lose more height than average, I also think he had several injuries which contributed to his above average shrinkage.

@houss

Back then he in 86' he still looked peak height. He had slimmed down for movies, lost alot of mass and was standing alot straighter. Hard to see him under 6'1" there.

When comparing 6'1" Frank Valois/Andre vs. Arnie/Andre, keep in mind that Arnie had a footwear advantage over Andre the Giant.

Sotiris, you nailed it. I saw Arnold's wax figure in Vegas and he was closer to 5'9" than 6'.

Arnold is an old man who resorts to footwear enhancements. Surprised...? I'm not. That said, I look forward to the next Terminator movie.

Obama is 6'1. 185-186. He was the same height than jim carrey, who is about 186 today.
Clooney is about a flat 5'10. 177-178.

187cm is not a joke for Arnold at all peak just like 185cm peak for Harrison Ford isn’t ridiculous.
