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.

Rob, Arnold looking the same height as Sergi here Click Here
Sergi is listed as 185cm, could it be that his height listing is incorrect ? This is strange.
Editor Rob
I think Sergi looks taller there...how much is debatable though, but I've not seen much of the guy to comment on his true height.

Yes right he was 6'2 or 6'3 . That's absurd and hilarious we know he was 6'1 max
Ian555 said on 18/Apr/18
He probably shrunk a lot lately. I would say he was 6'2 when he was younger.
Caesar said on 17/Apr/18
6'1-6'1.5 peak. Looked taller than Reg Parks, who definitely wasn't anything below 6'05.

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.

He looked a similar height too Reg Park and Jeff Bridges,that's 6ft1 range,and is around 5dt11 today.
Stephano187cm said on 12/Apr/18
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

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.

@Alex italy

Did you check photos with Reg Park? Reg is listed as 185cm and on photos he usually edges Arnold just slightly...hmm?

That's right. Well said. Tosay you see the truth Arnold is 179 maybe 180 standing tall. About 6'0.5-.75 peak
Stephano187cm said on 11/Apr/18
Alex Italy
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.

Zacperna height 172 cm.

Arnold height today - 183 cm.
vegetassaiyan said on 8/Apr/18
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.
vegetassaiyan said on 5/Apr/18
I can buy 185 cm for his peak If an early measurement but more 184 to me

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

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

Is not correct sorry. Arnold was 185 cm in his best day. I say a strong 184. 187 cm is still very upgrade

He was 187sm a morning height as I see,185 sm in evenings at his prime.So,this listing is about correct.

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

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
santgr said on 27/Mar/18
Solid 6ft1 for peak Arnold.Today he is just below 5ft11.
Barry Fl said on 27/Mar/18
You really think nobody would have noticed Arnold standing on tiptoe as he was having his height measured?

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

Looks like he was a a 184 guy on an proopiate measurement

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

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

Ok, now that's a lie!

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

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

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

@Juby5'9 3/4

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

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

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

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

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

Not suprising consider his is obsessed with his height.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To sum it up.

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

"Now I am 181,8cm out of bed and 179.8cm at my lowest."

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.

Now I am 181,8cm out of bed and 179.8cm at my lowest.

Met him at the Arnold classic where I took a pic with him. I am 181.5cm morning and 179.3cm at my lowest at night and he was as told as me, or maybe 1cm taller.

Definetely no more than 182cm today.

Thx for the pic, little tilt correction :)
From this pic and regarding your more hunched posture, I can´t see Arnie at max 5´10.5" with chance of just 5´10".
IMO you would be taller if you stood as straight as him.

Is possible he is 5'10.5 I just say 5'11.25 because there's a guy who is 179 cm at night or 5'10.5 and said Arnold was his height or 1 cm more. Yes Arnold is 5'10.75 nowdays maybe a bit upgrade. 10 years ago he was 5'11.25 and in the 70's as Mr Olympia not even 6'1 more 6'075

Rob is right. Arnold hit 5'11.25 for a height measurement

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

Arnold is clearly shorter than Wolff who claims 181cm/ 5´11.25".... He was already shorter than him some years ago...
Maybe 5´10.5" if we say Rob is a 5´8" guy and thats a fair guess
Dave5ft9 said on 20/Mar/18
Rob is right. Arnold hit 5'11.25 for a height measurement but on his posture looks 5'10.5-5'11. On his peak I give him 1'5 inch more. 6'0.75

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

Show me any proof you see Arnold being taller than Carl Weathers..Don't mention in Predator please. You can't even see it there. On the making of is explained how Arnold as the main character want him to appear taller and huge and the star of the movie. In others scenes they look similar. Being luck Arnold was as tall as him. Carl Weathers was 6'0.75-6'1 in his prime. Today is 6'0.5. He is a upgraded at 6'1.

I am 192 cm/6.3-6.4 and 210-220 pounds usually, kind of a big guy, and neither Arnold och Carl is small in anyway from my point of view. Carl weathers almost as tall as me and wider then me and i shook his hand and he had a strong grip, Arnold is about 6 feet and more heavily built then me. It differs around a forehead with arnold and me in height on the picture i have.

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?

All 3 could be argued from 6ft 1 up to 1.5 I'd say...I can see the arguments for anywhere amongst that range.

Afka9 said on 6/Mar/18
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.
George said on 6/Mar/18

I'd roughly agree with Sly Gemini below. 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.

Bale is not standing straight (neither do Arnold, but he is 'more straight' than Bale anyway) & has disadvantage in shoes, and still looks taller than Schwarzenegger in my opinion (eye level). Bale is 182-183 cm and Arnold was shorter than him 10 years ago! No, when he is 70, he looks even shorter!! 180 cm is absolute max nowadays for Arnold.

Arnold Governator is ONLY FIVE FEET EIGHT AND 1/2. He wear 2" lifts inside 2" inch heeled shoes to 'look' approximately '6 feet'. His fake height is the biggest lie ever perpetuated in Hollywood. Lou Ferigno towers over him barefoot by a full head and he's only 6'4". I've met him and I'm six foot 1/2 and I'm inch taller than him in his heels. Look up photos of him standing with Ferrigno in 1970s bodybuilding cmpetitions, barefoot

Arnold was peak 6’2” and he’s about 6’1”- 6’1.5” today. He’s the same height as obama today who is a strong 6’1.5”.

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.
Yas said on 5/Mar/18
Danimal, you think you're the only strongman fan? If I'd have put those pics up you would have have laughed your ass off and wrote something in capital letters. 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.

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.
Canson said on 2/Mar/18
@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..

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.

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?

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.

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

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.

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.

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..☺️

A friend of mine is 6'1" (probably closer to 6', but whatever) and he towered over Arnold's wax figure at Madame Tussauds'. I would say Arnold is closer to 5'9.5", max 5'10" if I'm being generous.

Damn, he's shrunk quite a bit throughout the years. I watched him as a kid more than 20 years ago and he looked huge, more like 188. I can't believe it when the numbers now show 181. Really? He's almost at the same height as Brad Pitt if it's 181.

Arnold has been generous and donates his height to a good cause. 1/3rd of an inch inch every 4 years since turning 50.


Rob - he's donating the extra height to Stallone, right? But joking aside, some people do lose extraordinary amounts of hieght. I have a friend who's just hit 70, and scraped 5'11 in his early 30s. Now he's a little over 5'8. My own father lost at least 3 inches of height by his late 60s.
Editor Rob
Some folk are surprised at height loss. Also what you do in your prime years can effect your latter years...an accumulation of wear and tear leads to surgeries needing done.

Look at Sylvester McCoy at 74 - he f**** his knees, ankles and hips in his 30's and 40's just through being an actor who was a bit more physical than others. Recently, he said he's now down to 5ft 2 (anybody who watched Dr Who in the 80's would have seen he was a minimum 5ft 5.5 range). Look at him in January 2018. At age 45 he'd have been taller than the girl he is standing beside...

He has lost a lot of height. Currently, he stands next to lebron James which is 6'7 and usually he'd be above his shoulders but, Arnold isn't. He is below, which is clear that his height has dramatically decreased. He would be lower than 5'9.

Former world strongest man and 65 years old Bill Kazmaier with Arnold today. Now keep in mind that both claimed to be 188cm or 6`2 in their prime and Bill weighlifted way heavier than Arnold and they both took steroids as well.

As you can see, Bill is way bigger and taller than Arnold...how is it possible thak Bill barely lost any height considering that he deadlifted and squatted much more than Arnold and booth took steroids?if heavy weighlifting and steroids is the cause of the heightloss, then Bill should be affected by it much more than Arnold.

Two possible answers: Arnold was never 188cm as Bill was in his prime or he has some medical conditions that made him shrunk way more than the average guy should.

I don't care he claimed 6'4. Arnold claimed he was 6'2 and we all know he struggles with a 6'1 in his peak. If Clint says he was 6'5 you would believe? You believe everything? How many actors we all know they add 2 inches to their heights? Your are just very naive. Average add 1 inch to their claim at least. With luck Clint was 6'4 with cowboy boots in his prime

Juby 5'9 3/4",

Where is the 5'11-3/4" Measurement involving T-2? I kind always thought Arnold was around 72" tall in his prime so I am curious what you are talking about exactly?
Juby5'9 3/4 said on 2/Feb/18
Arnold looks more like 182cm next to 215cm Wilt Chamberlain and 211cm Andre the Giant. So the "T2 measurement from 1990" (5'11.75") seems legit to me.

And he definitely didn't weight 235 lbs back then. In his biography he claimed to be less than 221 lbs during Conan movies. In "The Terminator" he was 228-230 lbs and he was bigger.

Not under 1,85m peak evening, 1,86m would be a fair listing, 6´1" he was the biggest part of the day.

Can´t see him 5´11" evening today, he goes down to 5´10-10.5", big loss but not uncommon to shrink 6-7cm age 70+.

To keep height:

Don´t smoke
Don´t drink much alcohol
Don´t do roids

Do drink enough
Do sleep enough (mattress should fit you)
Do stretching Robstyle and move enough
Have fun no anger

Arnold is still taller than Leno, but his prime height is tricky. There are scenes in Stay Hungry where he can look to edge out Jeff Bridges like the one in the bathroom and when they're at the party, but then at other times Bridges can look to have the edge so I'd guess them about the same, but then in The Long Goodbye, Elliott Gould clearly looks about an inch taller to me. Arnold could have been a 186 cm man.

"@CDS = yes all the measures don't give always exactly the same results imo.For example= i personnally practice bodybuilding and my buttocks are very rounded,and so if i measure myself back to a wall i must a little bit " break" my back to be absolutely stuck in the wall and so my posture will be not very good and i will lose probably a little height when i will read the height gauge."

as22 said on 30/Jan/18
slimeball, The words say that you don't lose height until 50-55, not 40-45. Of course unless you suffer injuries and surgeries. Also I think the height loss is overplayed dramatically on this site. I don't think you can really lose any height until 70 if you don't suffer of any bone affection, injuries or surgeries. It has to do with bad posture after 55 if none of those are included.

For example my grandpa is 75 year old and hasn't lost 1 cm in height since he was 20 year old.

my grandma is 81 and she suffers from a bone affection and she lost in only 6 years over 7 cm of height despite measuring 152 cm for his entire adulthood until she was 75.

As Far as the Bridges Video goes, Arnold was around 1.25" Shorter when they looked at each other face to face before Arnold walked off.

That 1-1/4" is not the true Difference obviously since Arnold was barefoot. Maybe only 1/2-3/4" of a Difference assuming Bridges had on regular shoes IDK.

Nowadays Bridges may be in the 5'11.5 range since he is a bit shorter than Chris Pine ( no taller than 6'0.5"). Bridges is also in his mid to late 60's, so a Loss of around 1" is possible. Its possible Bridges was only 6'0.5-6'1" in his prime which would actually still yield a Solid 6 foot Arnold.

He makes it to about and 1-1/4" under Joe Mangeneillo's eye level in similar footwear. Look at Joe with Rob, that eye level is at 6'0, so Arnold would be around 5'10.75" still in 2014 at age 67. He was likely around 1" taller than this in his prime so 6 footish.

There was a period of time - between about '77 and 1980 (before his movie career picked up) that Arnold got relatively slender. He'd obviously gone naturally, and was promoting healthier lifestyles through seminars and books and TV appearances etc, but I guess the movies from Conan onwards demanded muscle.

You would expect a man to lose a solid inch by the time he is 70, a women closer to 2 inches by early 70's.

A man losing 2 inches by 70 is greater than average, 1/2 inch below average.

Personally I believe Arnold could have dropped below 6'1 by T2 - if we take the 1969 measurement of 6'1.5 as a starting point. But I'm not going to accept it as a fact without any proof. And I'm pretty sure that this pre-production measurement doesn't exist.
Ferry said on 17/Jan/18
Anyway he looked 182 range barefoot in 1990-1991 T-2. I agree Juby5'9 3/4 Arnold wears big motorcycle boots (+1.5" according to arnoldheight.com article), specific haircut (another +0.5") and in the most of the scenes he is next to the young Eddie Furlong or Linda Hamilton (both short). In T2 he looks for a strong 6'2 guy (188 cm easily), but barefoot - I can buy that he was actually 182 cm.
If Arnold was 182 range at that ime at 43 years old still young healthy good posture his max could not be over 183'5 in his peak.
Barry Fl said on 17/Jan/18
Ferry - Sorry, but Robert Patrick saying he was almost the same height as Arnold is not proof of that supposed T2 pre-production measurement. It's proof of nothing except Robert Patrick trying to make himself look a bit more studly. Especially if he still says Arnold is "6 foot or 6'1" (your words - his exact quote was "I think he's about 6 foot 1"). This site allows Robert Patrick 5'11.5 at peak (which he would have been at time of filming).

And as for the constant cry of 'but Arnold was wearing boots' - so was everyone else in the film! You'd think they were all running about barefoot or in carpet slippers. Look at the start of the movie where Arnold faces off against the bikers (who were wearing boots), which he filmed in very flat deck shoes (visible in behind the scenes footage).
Juby5'9 3/4 said on 17/Jan/18
Does anyone have the link, where someone claimed that Arnold was measured 5'11.75 in 1990 (T2 pre-production) and Clint was 6'3.5 in 1980 (during production of "Any Which Way You Can" if I remember correctly)? I cannot find it. :(
Jim Hopper said on 16/Jan/18
In the video recently with Jay Leno both are stood facing each other. Arnie looks just about the same height as Jay. Proof hes not 5-11" today. Peak is 6-0.5 max.
Ferry said on 16/Jan/18
Barry Fl it's not a rumour. Is true. Robert Patrick was 5'11 at that time and on the interview the making of said: Arnie is about my size I think he is 6 or 6'1 and I'm 6'. But as you can see he exaggerate his height. You can visit his height listed here. He was 5'11 and Arnold about 6' no more
Juby5'9 3/4 said on 16/Jan/18
@Paul
"If Arnold was 182-182,5 cm in Terminator (5'11.5-.75) how can anyone can believe he was 187 cm? Over 185 cm is so hard to believe. Just listen a lot of testimonies, pics, etc. His current height is perfect but his peak was at least 1,5 shorter, mayority can't even notice 1-2 cm (1 inch) and real heights. You should learn what's a real 187 cm man barefoot."

Arnold wears big motorcycle boots (+1.5" according to arnoldheight.com article), specific haircut (another +0.5") and in the most of the scenes he is next to the young Eddie Furlong or Linda Hamilton (both short). In T2 he looks for a strong 6'2 guy (188 cm easily), but barefoot - I can buy that he was actually 182 cm.

Besides... this wasn't Arnold's peak. He was 43 back then and he could have already lost some height. The mystical "6'1.5 measurement" was in 1969, 21 years earlier. If Arnold's peak was 6'1, he could went down to 5'11.75 in 21 years. Seems legit to me.
Barry Fl said on 16/Jan/18
I occasionally see mention of this supposed T2 production measurement of 5'11.75. I've never seen any proof to back this up. Don't know where it came from but let's not start accepting it as a fact until we see any evidence to go along with it. As far as I know it's nothing better than an internet rumour started by one person and passed around since then.

If you don't believe me just search his bodybuilding years next to Frank Zane, he looks 2 inches taller 2'5 on him, Lou Ferrigno ( tower Arnold almost 3 inches at least. He was 191 cm in his peak). Legit 6'2 guys towered him. I can't buy more than 6'0.75 in his best day.

If Arnold was 182-182,5 cm in Terminator (5'11.5-.75) how can anyone can believe he was 187 cm? Over 185 cm is so hard to believe. Just listen a lot of testimonies, pics, etc. His current height is perfect but his peak was at least 1,5 shorter, mayority can't even notice 1-2 cm (1 inch) and real heights. You should learn what's a real 187 cm man barefoot.

I find it sad to see that Rob is being so heavily pressured lately to change the estimate of Arnold's height because a noisy hardcore don't like it (despite never having seen the man himself in real life). We're all entitled to our opinions, and should never insist anyone change theirs - especially without concrete proof. Let Rob make his own mind up. If you don't like it, that's fine. He's not asking you to change yours. For what it's worth I roughly agree with Rob's estimate, both peak and current. And I've stood next to Arnold.

Well thank you for answering and I know you are doing a great job. This site is so interesting and popular actors know this page. Congratulations for all this years. Just saying It'll be better sometimes you do downgrades knowing the average guess and so many testimonies. Saying a lot of people guess him 6ft 1, 1.25 and 6ft 1.5. makes a 6'1.25 average again on those heights. Well thank you again and hope you keep working in this site.

Yesterday I re-watch "Raw Deal" (1986). In a lot of shots Arnold is standing next to Robert Davi (6'2 or according to Rob 6'1.75) and he is slightly, max. 0.25" shorter than Davi. Of course if You take a really close look, you might notice that Arnold almost always has advantage in shoes (wears at least 1.25" heels). Depending on how honest about his height Davi was (he claimed to be even 6'3 - LOL) Arnold's peak couldn't be less than 6'1 (185 cm). One year later, Arnold is clearly at least Carl's (Wheaters - 185 cm) height in "Predator". Based on his movies in years 1984-1987 (Terminator-Predator) I can totally buy that Arnold peak was 185 or even 186 cm! But he might overestimate himself for 1-2 cm (shoes, hair, camera angle). Arnie as a solid 6'1 guy? Yeah, he could have been that guy. ;)

@Rob - could You add to his profile info/link about measurement that Arnold had in 1990 during T2 pre-production (it was 5'11.5 or 5'11.75?)? Barefoot, evening, in his 40s, he easily could have been 182 cm, I think.
