How tall is Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Height

5ft 11 ¼ (181 cm)

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

Lol why’s Arnold’s picture here showing him to be so small haha. In his bodybuilding days, he definitely cleared 6’1”. He was a very tall guy and would be taller than almost anyone around. I noticed how he’d always stoop his head down and slightly forward and was always very relaxed about his posture. Judging by how confident he was and how he looked, he wasn’t concerned about his height and knew he was tall.

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

I see you dont have idea to guess height. Big lol at your 5'11.5 guess for Arnold in 2018 lol. He is 5'10.5 today standing tall and a strong 5'10 in his relax posture. So many evidences. Arnold is closer to the Camera next to Ronald Reagan and next to Stallone is also standing taller than him. Arnold has 2 inches on him no more. He was 6'0.5 prime

ferryfoot, arnold was a true 6´1 and a half at peak. cameron was a solid 6'2 guy at peak. arnold was only 1 inch shorter tan cameron. never 1'5 inches or more.
Dingus said on 20/Jun/18
These days Arnold is about 5'11.5" or so. He has a much taller peak height. Some people have claimed he's only 5'10 and those claims go back to at least the late 80's. It seems unlikely Arnold has been progressively faking his height less and less. I doubt he used to pretend to be 6'02, then in the 90's he started to pretend to be 6'01", 6'00" in the 2000's and 5'11" in the 2010's. Arnold has clearly undergone the height loss many people naturally do as they age in life. Injures from bodybuilding and acting combined wit the fact that steroids wear away at bones has likely cost him an inch or so.

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

With the 5'08.50" Sly Stallone relatively recently.

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

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

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

Mister lennon said on 19/Jun/18 you are funny. If were that tall you would not see the difference.
In the 90's you can see Arnold is about 1.5 inch shorter than him or more. He was 6-0.5 peak and in the 90's he was 6'0.25
Mister lennon said on 19/Jun/18
He was shorter than cameron because cameron was 6'2 and arnold 6'1 and a half.
Minimum 6'1 and a half at peak. 186-187.
Ferry5foot8 said on 18/Jun/18
And shorter than James Cameron and some other legit 6'2 guys. Is funny how a minority still say he was 6'2. 6-0.5 never over.

@Danimal: It looks a little less than 2" in the photo, but in the video I see roughly 2" between them when they're posing for photos, but as I said, I'd need to see Mario's footwear. Here's the video with Fallon: Click Here Do you honestly see much of a difference throughout the video? Depending on how they stand, Jimmy can look taller, but at other times they look close. I thought Arnie looked about 5'10.75" with St. Pierre or weak 5'11" range, but I don't think Arnold stands at his full height as much the last 5-10 years. If Arnold is that compressed and shrunken, wouldn't it be doubtful he'd stand with good posture? If Arnold were really 5'10"-5'10.5", I'd expect him to look 5'9" range at times when he's not standing straight. His co-stars in Terminator Genisys were Jai Courtney and Jason Clarke, whom Rob lists 6'0.75" and 6'1", respectively. Arnold could still look close to their heights with a little extra cowboy-type heel and this was less than 3 years ago.

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

He looks 1-2" shorter than Bush Snr who is 6-2. Arnie 6-0.5 prime height

Arnold with luck would hit the 5'10.75 mark standing tall and stretching for a measurement.
Ferry5foot8 said on 16/Jun/18
He is not 6 foot today please. ManKo met him and was slightly taller than him. ManKo is 180 cm tall and said Arnold is about 179 5'10.5. He has pics with him posted in this site. I'm sure the 6'4 guy is maybe 6'3 or 6'2.5? Who is honest on heights here??

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

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

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

His height has really been discussed many times and from all the researches that i've gathered the only logical measurement for him would be 186cm or 187cm top but it's still questionable. There are pics woth him and Serge Nubret who is listed as a 183cm guy, andyou can clearly see that Arnold is taller for like 4cm top.
Ian555 said on 8/Jun/18
Arnie was probably 6’2 back in the day but I believe he probably shrunk to 6’0 because he is shorter than 6’5 JJ watt significantly and slightly shorter than Trump who is probably 6’2.
karenmer said on 8/Jun/18
guys T guess you don't know how really tall is a legit 187 cm random guy. Arnold was around 184 in his days and today 180 at most. If he really was 187 he would pass in all movies as a 6'3 guy and more with his hairstyle and boots in Terminator. Other reason add how producer and directors want him to look taller with angles. 6'0.5 is enough for Arnold today 5'10.5/75

Mario Lopez is just 5'8.75. Rob has listed too many actors here and you can search him with Mario Lopez. Mike Tyson today at 5'9.25 or 176 cm peak 5'10 (177-178 cm) has a full inch on Mario Lopez. I could name more than 30 actors with him that proofs Mario Lopez is not even 5'9 more a strong 5'8.75

@Rising: yea I have a hard time putting Lopez 5’10”. He doesn’t always stand straight I’ll give him that. However, I couldn’t see him edging Jamie Foxx either. Lopez looked shorter than Elizabeth Berkeley to be honest and not sure if she was really 5’10 flat. Maybe weak. 5’9.5-.75. Lopez was taller than Dustin Diamond as was M-PG earlier in but now Diamond appears taller in later episodes of Saved By the Bell than Lopez

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

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

Click Here

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

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

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

He's not over 5'11 today

There are not 2 inches beteween them. You could say 1'75 at most. Arnold is a bit closer to the camera too. You are blind yes. Saying Mario Lopez is 5'10 is absurd he is in the 5'8 range closer to 5'9. ManKo the guy who met him is a legit 5'11 and said he was a bit taller than Arnold guessing him at 5'10.5. You coulod argue 5'10.75 nowdays for Arnold. Over this mark guess is just blind and dont have idea

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Considering how he looked barefeet at Peak there is no evidence he was und 185cm Peak maybe even 185,5cm6'1 wish will make him 6'2 morning 6'1,5 10am 6'1 night wich is tall enaugh to look near 6'2 at Times and short enaugh to look 6ft at Times

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

Agreed
Right out of bed 6´2"flat, 6´1.75" early morning and 6´1-1.25" at night.

To Dmeyer:

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

Arnold was never over 184'5 cm or 6'0.5-75. If he ever was a legit 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 he would had look 6'3 in movies in Terminator with his boots and never looked that tall. The most he looked with boots is 6'2. Other reason is today 179 cm or close to 180 if you want. I can't go over a strong 184 man that was his real height. A medical measurement and correct would be 184 range in his prime.
Myself said on 10/May/18
I think this is how Arnold has pretty much shrunk with age Click Here (if they do have same footwear)
Although maybe Eddie is more of a 6'1.5 than Arnold was.

stop posting garbage. Noone here believes he went 187 to 178 wake up and study. He is not 90. He is not Clint Eatwood. Arnje lost 5 cm max not more 4 cm in my opinion.

So Arnold was max 185cm, could that be correct guys? Still nobody knows his true prime height lol :D

No, he was measured at night barefoot in 1969 at 6'1.5", so he was minimum that height in his youth. He's lost A LOT of height over the years.

181cm is a bit too high for him today.

Of course it's too high. Look at the new pics I just uploaded of him and 5'9" (175cm) Mario Lopez. Arnold is lucky if he's 5'10" (178cm) today.

Arnold peak height was 6ft 1 ½ (187 cm)!

You've always maintained that he was at least 6'1.5" peak(which I 100% agree with)....but you really think that he's shrunk basically FOUR inches at the age of seventy?!?!?! Sans a spinal degenerative disease, that's pretty much impossible.

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

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

Of course there is. It's called aging.
The spinal disks actually get thinner as you age and that makes you lose height.
My father actually lost 3 inches between his younger days and now (he's 80+).
Canson said on 3/May/18
@Berta: I could buy 6’1” peak for him but it would be hard to see him much taller.

Dmeyer said on 2/May/18
Was near Peak height in Batman and looks nous less than 184-85 with 179-80 Clooney could look 185 with Cameron and Patrick as well so 6'0,75-1in bodybuilding days and 6'0,5-0,75 by 90s is believable then 6ft by 2000 now about 5'11

Yeah 185-ish for him is right.

@EltonAs Everyone is entitled to their opinion so please respect it whether you agree or disagree. As for Arnold's peak height I can assure you as a 184cm guy myself (I wake up as 185cm after a good night's sleep and sleep as 183cm)looking through many videos, photos and other footage of him he always looked a bit taller around 186cm. I agree he wasn't 187cm. But that's my opinion again anyway :)
EltonAs said on 29/Apr/18
In my opinion the most he could shrunk is 4 to 5 cm and minimum 3 cm. So 183-184 to 179 makes more sense. 185 just could hit at morning or in his best peak day, but I say 184 maxx
EltonAs said on 29/Apr/18
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 27/Apr/18
Sounds nonsense. Nobody believe those guesses. You should try a new one. Nobody believes a guy like Arnold went from 186 to 178-179 even all those injuries. He went from a strong 184 guy to 179 5 cm. A better and more realistic stimation, but please I cant go with those few "186 guesses stop please...
Leno said on 28/Apr/18
In the 1980 edition of Mr.olympia, along side Mentzer and Zane, he didn't look over 181-182, so o guess he is 182-3 peak and 181-180 now if he really shrank
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 27/Apr/18
peak 185-186cm
today 178-179cm
EltonAs said on 25/Apr/18
I'm with ManKo who has pics with him and said he probably was 184-185 cm no more. Today he is 1 cm shorter than ManKo who is 180(the guy eho met him and has pics with him). Arnold is 179 range today not 181! peak 185 in his best day! I say 184.

he nzver looked a 6 ft 1.5-2in guy at most 6'1-1.25 , maybe in 20s and 30s 185-186cm by 90s 184-5cm now 180-1cm
EltonAs said on 24/Apr/18
To Gornald:
No one here say he was 188cm which is almost 6'2.25. Don't say something nobody believe. We already know he was not even 186 cm and you try with 188 .. He was max 185 cm which is 6'0.75. He never looked 6'2 with shoes more 6'1.5
Jim Hopper said on 24/Apr/18
@Gornald That is what I posted also. I legit 6-2 guy in biker boots will look 6-3 or possible 6-4 almost. He never ever ever looked that tall. Looked 6-2 in the boots indeed. Without 6-0,5 peak
Gornald said on 23/Apr/18
The thing is, if Arnie was really 188cm tall and so having his shoes on would make him 190cm+ and that would be pretty tall which to me he never appeared like that on screen or next to someone up until his 50s... do you guys agree?
AdyEli said on 23/Apr/18
I think we are talking and talking the same story. This story is over. The average guess is closer to the truth than his listed height for sure is far. Today he is a weak 180 man the guy who met him is 180 cm and says he is 1 cm on him and he even said he maybe had more advantage shoe. So Arnold at 179'5 more or less today and 183 in Terminator 2 when he was 43 years old is impossible he ever hit 6'1. If he was 183 at 43 he was max 184'5 cm . End of story
Juby5'9 3/4 said on 23/Apr/18
@Ian C.
If I remember correctly, there are couple of shots in "End of Days" when we clearly can see, that Arnold wears cowboy boots which added him at least 1,5 inches. Same situation as it was with T2 and even more in the first Terminator (boots gave him solid +2 inches).
gipsonishere said on 23/Apr/18
I agree the guy who met Arnold. He probably was 184 range and today he is 179-180 cm tall
gipsonishere said on 23/Apr/18
Robert Patrick was 180 cm peak and today is 5'10.5 He said Arnold was about his size and 1 inch on him. So Arnold was a strong 6 foot in Terminator2 but wearing his boots anybody would guess him at 6'1 minimum. I think Arnold was 6'0.5 peak I agree this guys He was not even 6'1. I go with 6'0.75 at very very most

@I met Sergi too at the Arnold Classic, I would say that he was 182-183cm max, he is only 185cm or 6´1 with shoes on. It is not uncommon for celebrities, and specially bodybuilders, athletes, etc to add one inch to their real height.
hoverrover said on 20/Apr/18
Nice pic I now Sergi Constance he is from Valencia Spain and studieed in the same college as me. He is a great fitness model listed 6'1 he says he is 185 cm but he is really 182-183 barefoot. weak 6 footer I know him and he is the exact height as me
Nils2 said on 20/Apr/18
You can clearly tell on his body that he lost quite abit height. I think he lost height earlier then most people. I'm still sceptic to 6'1.5 peak but for sure he was over 6ft. In his prime he probably got away with 6'2 to most people.
Jim Hopper said on 20/Apr/18
Never over 6-1 peak. Google Bush Snr with him. Bush was 6-2 peak height. Arnie was 1 or 2" shorter.

Read well. Stephano just said Arnold was never over 6'1 so Reg claimed to be 6'1 and Arnold never ever looked taller but shorter or same height as Reg with luck. Don't say 6'1 range because there's a difference to be a weak 6'1 guy or .75 than a 6'1 range guy and Arnold in my opinion was a strong 6 footer closer to 6'1

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

And of course he has had heart problems.

Reg park claimed himself 6'1. This is the highest he possible was. So Arnold need a downgrade It's not fair Arnold's listed height. Arnold never was over 6'1 he gives me strong 6'0 impression in his peak

@Tomm said on 10/Apr/18
there is absolutely no way a person can lose 2 inches of height without suffering a severe accident.

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

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

I juat say to you: lol you are funny guy. 6'1 and that's very generous
Alex Italy said on 10/Apr/18
Arnold was clearly 186-187 in his prime. He was tall, clearly taller than average, but still shorter of 190 and 190+ people. Infact just about 1 out of 10 people was taller than him. That is the classic "being towered ratio" of a 6'1.5 tall person.
If he was 6'1 or worst 6, he would have looked much more average throughout his career.

Plus you can see he was same height of other almost 6'2 celebrities like Bridges, Rapaport or president Clinton
Tomm said on 10/Apr/18
there is absolutely no way a person can lose 2 inches of height without suffering a severe accident. Arnold has alway been healthy posture-wise and always had great posture. He quit lifting heavy early. The reason you list him 5'11 today and 6ft2 peak is because today you see the truth. In the 70's the average height in America was 5'7, so of course Arnold would be a giant. You seriously can't peak a person over 2cm of height in comparison to their old self. Arnold peaked at 6ft and that is a generous estimative
santgr said on 10/Apr/18
Same height as Reg Park during his peak. 6ft1 or 6ft1.25. Never was 6ft1.5 in his life.

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

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

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

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

Guys call me crazy but usually dreams give you the answer and the truth. Sometime ago I dreamt I was measuring Arnold height lol yes.. He was in his 20's when he was competing and was very big and muscular. The stadiometer give 184'6 or 184'8 not sure (it was a dream). haha however before this dream he always gave me the impression of a 184 solid man nearly 185 or 185 after 1-2 hours wake up

ManKo you rock man! I always knew it! We finally know the man's height! Arnold is about 180 today (5'10.75 at 70) (5'11- 5'11.25 at 60) peak 184-185 as Manko said. I also knew he was 6'0.5 .75 weak 6'1 at best

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

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

Barry Fl said on 28/Mar/18
To be honest I think we've done fairly well on the subject of Arnold overall, on this page. Most of us agree on 6 to 6'1 peak, and around about 5'11 now (either just under or just over). As far as we can be certain, we've pretty much got him pinned down.
Barry Fl said on 28/Mar/18
From what I remember, Arnold wasn’t happy about the Vince Basille measurement, as he was insistent that he was 6’2. When the measurement came out lower he asked to be measured again, stretched and strained and stood up as straight as possible – and the measurement was exactly the same – 6’1.5. I think if Vince’s stadiometer was incorrect then Arnold would have been more than happy with the result. The fact that he wasn’t, and demanded to be measured again, is worth keeping in mind.
Jim Hopper said on 27/Mar/18
If he WAS an approx 6-2 peak barefoot guy he would of looked 6-3 to 6-4 in the Terminator films wearing biker books which give you a height boost from 1" to 2" inches. {my boots give me well over an inch increase}. So its not rocket science to say he was never ever looking 6-3 6-4" in any films!!!!!!! Ever!!! So the truth is he was 6-0.5" peak and looked {6-2" in boots} in Terminator etc. Sorry fanboys Today looks 5-11" max

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

Rob do you believe he was 186'7 cm? I really like this site but I can't go with this lie. Too many pics out there and people testimonies saying he was never over 6'1. I also believe he was close to 6'1 closer to 6'0.5. Arnold is my favorite actor adn he is the best but enough saying he was a big muscular guy 184 cm or 6 1/2 dude

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

Ok, now that's a lie!

Was the guy who measured Arnold lying about it? I don't think he was...but it's not impossible for the stadiometer to have been off slightly. That might support the argument of 6ft 1 max for him.
ManKo said on 25/Mar/18
@Andy6footer

Hi Andy,

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

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

On the other hand, I met some strongmen and I have pictures with some such as Zydrunas and Brian Shaw and they are definitely huge and I would say that they are as tall as they claim to be, or even taller (I thought that Zydrunas was taller than 191cm)
Hank917 said on 25/Mar/18
In this photo from 1983 Arnold is holding his citizenship certificate. It is difficult to read but I think the certificate states his height as 6ft2 and his weight as 215 pounds. I guess he did not get measured for his citizenship certificate and they just asked Mr. Schwarzenegger.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not suprising consider his is obsessed with his height.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To sum it up.

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

I don't how You guys measure yourself. Last time i checked (about 2 monthsago) I was 177,5cm in the morning and 177,3cm twelve hours later. The lowest measure for me was 176,5cm. I don't know how You can shrink over 1 centimeter during the day, it's impossible.


Arnold was very close to Carl in "Predator", but we can't see them standing straight as well as we can't see their shoes. Arnold could have higher heels.

I am the guy on the pic. Just something worth mentioning, during the last month I’ve been busy, and I have not done any deadlift or squat during my trainings. I started taking glucosamine with chondroitin as well. I have noticed that I don’t lose as much height during my days as before and my morning height is also a bit higher.

Saw a picture of Arnie with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar. Thought Arnie looked about four to five inches shorter. Varadkar is 6'3 at most IMO. Searched the internet for any reference to Varadkar's height but could only see a journalist describe him as 6'4...which is mostly likely an overstated guess. A friend of mine was recently in a group photo standing beside Varadkar. Both were standing tall and both were about same height. My friend is a bit shorter than me, probably 190cm. it's possible Arnie is now below 5'11, maybe 5'10.5

Rob, are you sure young Arnold, young Will Smith and young Jim Carrey had the same height? In my opinion, Arnold could be really 6'1.25" but I would not put it under 186 cm. Maybe Smith's list is good, but I'm afraid that he and Carrey may already need a peak height and current height... As for Carrey, I think he could be weak 6'2 "(6'1.75") when he was younger. What is your opinion Rob?

Most lifters are not too shortened their when they get older. Because they still use low dose anabolizan and they continue to lift weight. And they lost muscles and bones density slowly,not rapidly. But when Arnold was thrown into politics and suddenly left the sport and anabolizan, his muscles and bones dramatically eroded. His condition is like in postmenopausal women. Estrogen is rapidly decreasing, muscle and bone era starts.

I've been close enough to Arnold to judge his height on three occasions (2014, 2016 and 2017) and each time put him at either 5'11 or 6 foot (even accounting for footwear). The man is no giant, but he's really not as short as some people would like to have you believe.

Wow.. Buddy, you have to look at recent pics and video of poor Arnold. He has lost many inches in height. Rob is being EXTREMELY generous with his 5'11.25" present day height. That is at least 1" too high for his present height. Imo, he has now officially lost 3.5" since his prime and I AM a HUGE fan of Arnold. This is not a knock against him by any means. It's a completely objective estimate based on what my eyes SEE and not what I WANT THEM TO.

Z is closer in most of those pics, and the one pic he isn't Laurence looks 6'2, and look at the floor in that black and white pic. Kaz has gone from 6'2.5 to 6'1.5. I can play this game too. 6'0 for Shahlaei and Kaz is hilarious. Geoff Capes has lost 3 inches, but he has a new hip and degerative spine problems, thats what makes you lose lots of height.

George yea it’s a lot of camera angles u see a lot of shots of him in the terminator movies with he’s top off the camera is shoot really low down making him look much taller and bigger but over the years he did slim down look at T1 then T2 he’s a lot bigger in T1 he slowly got off the steroids in movies witch is a good thing he’s 70 now still looks great where bodybuilding’s like Ronnie Colman hasn’t stopped taking them he’s 50 odd and always having major operations but I would say 6 prime 5,10 now flat

Bill is still taller than Eddie today, and Eddie is about 186cm, which makes Bill about 188cm nowaday...

He is almoust as tall as Zydrunas who is 191cm...

And way taller than Arnold even though Arnold claimed 188cm in his Prime and Bill claimed 190cm...

Bill is way taller than 183cm/6ft today. He is still around 188cm / 6'2. Either Arnold was never 6'1.5 or he lost more height than Bill, even though Bill lifted heavier weights.

Bill Kazmeier's body has been through far more wear and tear and he hasnt lost much height. Strongman bodies get absolutely hammered but they don't lose as much as these guys apparently have.

Oh YES HE HAS lost height. Are you kidding me? Look how he measures up to legit 6'5"-6'6" guys today compared to when he was in his prime. They DWARF him today. He used to measure 6'2.5"-6'3" and Geoff Capes at his peak was 6'5"-6'6" and Kaz did not look to be towered by him by any means. He stood the same height as other legit 6'3" guys like Lars Hedlund and Jon Pall Sigmarson. Today you have Kaz looking to be in the 6'0" range with guys of that height. YES, his posture is great, but he is the same height as Derek Poundstone and Laurence Shahlei today who are both around 6'0" legit (yes I know, they are billed at 6'1", but are not that height). He is also edged out by LEGIT 6'1" Eddie Hall (no he is not 6'3"). He is 65 this year and I promise you, he has lost at least 2" but because of his good posture it's difficult to notice until he stands next to other people of known height. the height loss is easily in his upper torso and neck. It is NOT curved over, but it is compressed.

@Original: 5’10 range looks small for him imho. But when you say
fan, I never take personal opinions into consideration when guaging height. I think he looked 184-185 range next to most people he was next to at his peak. Maybe a strong 6’ but no less than that and today still prob a solid 5’11 imho
George said on 2/Mar/18
Cole, that's right..That guy in hat is listed as 6'2 and is towering Arnold for atleast 3 inches..Curious thing I noticed is, in Commando Arnold is looking as a 5'11, medium sized guy(though muscular) but in Predator he looks much heavier, massive guy and easily a 6 footer..In Commando when that 6'2 listed guy towers Arnie, in Predator Arnie stands equal to or taller than 6'2 listed Carl Weathers and Sonny..I guess that's largely cos of camera tricks as you can see in some scene we can see Arnold standing as tall as that big Jesse Ventura..
Yas said on 2/Mar/18
No offense Rob, but to my knowledge Arnie ankles,knees and hips are fine. Training properly with correct posture and diet, injuries a far and few between.
Editor Rob
Arnie is not your ordinary human being, he lifted extraordinary weights through his life.

I can see he being 6'0 to 6'0.5" in his peak, no more. In 2018, he is 5'10.5 - 5'10.75.
The Shredder said on 2/Mar/18
I do believe the 6'1.5 measurement but I believe it was dodgy. He was being listed at just 6'1 at 19 and was giving I think 6'1 and 3/8th before.

I can see him at just 6'1 at peak but not much under if at all
Yas said on 1/Mar/18
All bodybuilders inflate their height, ALL of them. Ferrigno was never 6'5, Moeller was never 6'8 and guess what? Arnie was never 6'1.5.
Yas said on 1/Mar/18
@Danimal THERE IS a way of knowing, just WATCH the episode. 6'1.5 Is a joke.

To Cole:
Full agree. Commando is one of may favorite movies and Arnie looked 5'11.5 range.

Looked and was are 2 very different things. Add 2" to that height and that is what he measured.
Danimal said on 1/Mar/18
Jim Hopper said on 28/Feb/18
I really think the truth here is Arine was a strong 6 foot. Maybe 6-0,25 in the morning. Around 5-11 /5-10,75 now. Never a 6-2" guy.

I think he still looks around 5ft 11.5. He was nearly the same height as 6ft PM David Cameron a couple of years ago.
A peak height of 6ft 1+ is conceivable.

Remember, this guys party piece in the 70s & 80s was bodybuilding. I noticed from personal experience last year that working out & running can temporarily prevent you from being peak height. I'd done strength programmes and running for most of my adult life and and when I infrequently measured myself I was always 1m83-1m84. Last summer a had an injury and had to cease training for 2 months. I just rested and did light stretching.
Anyway, measured my height a couple of times out of pure boredom and was suddenly 1m 85.3. Couldn't believe it.

I'm sure you measuring your height a couple of times was not done out of pure boredom. You wouldn't be on this site if height to you was that casual of a thing.

Rob , he had a Heart Valve replacement , cann that make you lose height or very little if any?

How old are you Shredder? Just think about your question again. How can heart valve replacement make you lose height? Are they fusing spinal discs? Are they cutting away bone at the femur/hip/knee level? It's like asking, can laser eye surgery make you lose height? I mean really? Do you have to ask these questions to Rob? First of all, he's NOT a doctor, but more importantly, isn't this one just logical Shredder?

Both Gus Reinwesch and Thorsen used to be billed at 6'5. They're about the same height.

Problem is they aren't 6'5 or 6'4. Gus is shorter than Tom Selleck. I've seen this episode of Magnum. Tom is in white plimsoles and Gus is in football shoes. The guy is 6'3 which puts Arnie below 6'1.5, probably an inch under that.

Probably THE WORST camera angle shot to prove your point that Tom Selleck was taller than him. There is NO WAY of knowing that based on the pic you provided.

The point I'm making is that Arnie may have had height measurements that showed his true height, especially when he was younger; but the heavy training may have kept him walking around 2-3cm shorter most of the time.
Cole said on 1/Mar/18
Canson lol I’m a massive fan but he was pushing 6ft now he’s 5,10 never over 6ft
Canson said on 28/Feb/18
A peak Arnie was definitely close to 6’1 if not a full 6’1” today a little shorter tho 5’11 range
Goranold said on 28/Feb/18
@Jim

Why do you think he was taller in the morning? What does it have to do with being taller in the morning, like you grow up during the night ehh wtf.
Dmeyer said on 28/Feb/18
Lowest arguable Peak or 80s early 90s is 6'0,5-0,75 184-185cm example if bridges was only 6'1,75 shoes on arnie looks aleast 184-5cm , Belushi was not less than 180-180,5cm so arnie near 185cm ,tom Arnold who'm i met and was 185-186cm arnie didnt look shorter , arnie bas near 5cm on Bennett in commando so near 6'1 , Clooney was aleast 179-80cm arnie looks near 6cm taller , when in equal shoes and posture arnie Can look 10cm over Sly AT Peak , around 9cm on van damme so 184-5cm i agree he rarely looked 186-7cm Peak he looked more anywere 6'0,5-6'1,25 , under 6'0,5-0,75 evening height After weight lifting is unlikely ,i think 6'2 out if bed Peak and 6'1 night and by films 6'0,75 then 6'0,5 6'0 5'11,5 and now 5'11ish

With his lifts an hair style looked over 6'1. Today is 5'10.5/75 with his shoes and lifts sometimes can look over 5'11. The shrunk some talking about is exaggerate he lost maybe a full inch or 1'25. Let's be realistc. He went from 6 /6'0.25 to 5'10.75

Arnie's 3 inches shorter than 6'4 max Thorsen, who's probably less than that. Thorsen's always dipping his head in the photos. 185 max.

George u don’t need the van look at him getting on the plane with the black guy in the hat that guy is listed at 6,2 he towers Arnold so yea u could be right he looks around 5,11 in commando
Barry Fl said on 27/Feb/18
Reading the comments below, clearly even Arnold's waxwork has been losing height.... :-D
Editor Rob
Poor Arnie, with all the flashes going off, it's taken it's toll on him and he's melting away!
Jo said on 27/Feb/18
bottom line, In my view, as I said many times, the guy was about 186 cm (noon height), which is a very good height for a man. I cannot say for sure, I've never meet the guy, but after all the pics and movies that I've seen I can express this opinion about the guy.
About the measurements of Vince Basille, I haven't been there to see but always a small error can occur or like Rob said, additional to this small human error, maybe Arnold did a burst of gut. Overall, Arnold always has seemed above average guy. Even these days, as he's around 180cm, he's not a short guy.
George said on 27/Feb/18
Thank you Rob for the suggestion..Here is what I told about him standing next to Chevrolet Blazer..In one pic he is standing almost stretched fully close to the vehicle..

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

Never seen anything proving a 6´5" Sven, he claimed 193cm btw...
I have trouble seeing him even 6´4" eveningheight.

But in the barefoot pics Arnie for sure isn´t under 186cm, 6´1.25"

Even if Sven is/was 193cm (6'4"), Arnold is still 6'1.5" in those pics. I mean they are barefoot after all. If Sven was 6'5" then Arnold was 6'2" earlier in the day and 6'1.5" at night. Either way, those pics of him with Sven rule out the ridiculous 5'10"-6'0" claims of a prime Arnold.
George said on 26/Feb/18
Guys, can someone tell me if there is any option to upload pics here??I am visiting this website for some years watching comments every time regarding Arnold's height, but this is my first post as I have noticed something today while watching one of his movies..Here am preferring to compare him with some nearby automobiles rather than other humans cos we cannot guarantee if the given height of the other person is exact or not and also considering their heels(which makes difference).But with automobiles we can get almost accurate idea since their dimensions are standardized..The movie I watched was commando after some time and you can see him standing right next to a 1973 Chevrolet Blazer K 5 of which height is 71.5 inches which is about 5ft11.5 inches.Even after considering all the factors for correcting, ie uneven surface, his high heeled shoes, camera angles - still we can conclude he was not as tall as the vehicle..He was atleast an inch shorter than it..I took it's screenshots but don't know if there is any option to upload them here..Thats 1985 movie when he was around 38 years old..But I also have to point out that he seemed much bigger guy, should say almost 6ft1 inch guy in 1987 Predator though I couldn't make any comparison of him with any vehicles but standing along with all those guys..I guess that's largely cos of camera tricks as you can see in some scenes he looks as taller as those big guys like Jesse Ventura and Bill Duke(have it's screenshots too)..My conclusion is that he might have been around 6' 0.5" during his peak which was during 1960s and 1970s..But by 1980s to later years he became 5'11 then to 5'10 as of now..Sorry for the long post, but just wanted to present what I found out..Sorry for my english too as it's not my first language..☺️
