with Ejel he's like "whaaat"
James said on 20/Sep/11
With rob he really does look more 6ft.
Maximus said on 10/Sep/11
He does look to be minimum 6' to 6'1"....cant be any shorter.
Legend said on 30/Aug/11
Agree with Alex.

If Carl Weathers is 6'1" why did Dolph Lundgren tower over him in Rocky 4 Ivan Drago was said to be 6'5" in the Rocky 4 although Dolph Lundgren was only 6'4" in his peak. I have friends who are around 6'1" and I am 6'4" and there is a difference but not like the one in Rocky 4 between Drago and Appollo Weathers and Lundgren.

Because Dolph was taller than 6'4" in 1985 that's why.

In the upper picture Carl has 52 pixels over Rob. Rob's head is 164 pixels and approximately 25cm. So Carl has near 8cm over Rob. Hence we obtain 181cm. Also he slouches a lot. Rob slouches too, but not so much. So we can add extra 2-4cm and get 183-185cm. More precise calculations are impossible due to Carl's bad posture.

Ridiculous, your downgrade is only a pathetic excuse to prove your stupid 5'10 peak theory about Schwarzenegger.
6'1.25 peak, 6'0.75 now, still looks closer to 6'1.
5'8.56784 said on 26/Jul/11
Come on guys! he looks 6' now and he's already kinda old, he could very well have reached 6'2 peak in his youth. That photo with Ejel is useless, if Ejel is 5'9, then Carl must have been in higher ground to considerably hunch and still look full 5 iches taller.
Yaspaa said on 20/Jul/11
Nowhere near 6'2 peak.
Ali said on 19/Jul/11
6'0 at best. Max 4 inches difference.

I used to think he was 5'10.
Shaun said on 7/Jul/11
Stood straight 6'1! is fair for this guy. But I see him more as a 6'0-6'1" than a 6'2" guy for sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/11
187-188cm peak
185cm today
Legend said on 30/Jun/11
6'1.25 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jun/11
I think 6ft2 or close at peak
Legend said on 26/Jun/11
No he doesn't. Strahan is 4 inches shorter there at least.
Dmeyer said on 15/Jun/11
Ton did look full 6 ft 1 Like 185.5cm
[Editor Rob: both our footwear was about 1 inch, I saw him with other actors that day and think near 6ft 1 is my guess.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/11
He looks rather unwell in the new did he look to you, Rob?

[Editor Rob: he looked ok when I talked to him at his table that day.]
Ejel Khan said on 31/May/11
Guys, I'm 5'8.5 now, due to back problems. I was previously 5'9", but have lost height, and concede the difference. Rob has downgraded me, on another page (John Challis). This was intiated by my self submitting my revised height to him. Hope that clears things up!
Ejel Khan said on 31/May/11
In response to; Legend says on 30/May/11
I've lost 0.5", due to back problems affecting my posture. I'm 5'8.5" at best now, and that's the best I can concede guys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/11
you do have a point there, Legend. Even Rob has admitted that he's unsure if some of the people who contribute photos are honest about their heights

[Editor Rob: funnily enough, I did actually briefly speak to Ejel at the weekend in Milton Keynes!]
Legend said on 30/May/11
I don't know about Ejel being 5'9. I don't believe it without proof.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/11
I honestly don't rule out 6ft2(188cm) peak
hyruler said on 27/May/11
6'.075" peak out of bed, barefoot height. 6'- barefoot now, almost 6'1 with shows today.
Ejel Khan said on 26/May/11
In response to: rob89 says on 24/May/11
Rob, the pic is deceiving I admit. My legs were bent, and I was leaning over. Carl was hunched, as a result it's not a good height differential pic. We had it on the site because we didn't have a pic of Carl. I admit Rob's pic is much better in order to analyse height. I am 5'9", promise! It is a bad pic, sorry!
rob89 said on 24/May/11
I find it weird how he looks shorter next to Rob than he does besides this Ejel guy, who is actually supposed to be an inch taller than Rob. Even though Carl's leaning forward, Ejel is closer to the camera AND wearing a cap, somehow he still looks taller next to him than with Rob!

It honestly looks like he would have 5-6 inches on Ejel if he straightened out, they were the same distance from the camera and Ejel took his cap off, putting him in the 6'2 - 6'3 range. While with Rob he seems to be really struggling to reach 6'1, even after taking his slouch into consideration.

Either Ejel isn't really 5'9, Carl shrunk in the timespan between these two photos, Carl has ground and/or shoe advantage with Ejel, or maybe some combination of all the above. But anyway, SOMETHING is definitely off here.
Lenad said on 24/May/11
6'0-ish today. Peak 6'1-ish
Legend said on 23/May/11
ACG says on 16/May/11
Leaning in with Rob and looks WAAAYYY hunched over with Ejel. 6'2" is easily possible peak.
And you are easily delusional as always ACG, the mental ward escapee... If you want to get the accurate height of a celebrity just subtract 1 to 2 inches from ACG's estimate and there you go.
James said on 22/May/11
Yeah i have too agree looks 6ft with rob
Legend said on 19/May/11
6'1 peak, 6 feet now.
runt said on 19/May/11
Carl Weathers is not Carl Weathers unless he's wearing a mustache. Only the second pic counts in my book ;)
Bill said on 19/May/11
Sam your out of your mind, there's at least 4-5 inches between Carl and both Ejel and Rob. Look how much he's leaning over in both pics!!! Can you not see, its right in front of your eyes. Carl Weathers is still probably close to 6'2 as he looks 2-3 inches taller than Adam Sandler throughout Happy Gilmore and close to Arnold's height in Predator
Mathew said on 17/May/11
He's not 6'2". He looks a weak 6'0" with Rob but he looks 6'2" with Ejel. 6'1" is close to the truth.
pauly e said on 17/May/11
I'm actually quite surprised he was only 205 lbs in 1988 at 6'1. He looked pretty stacked up....
ACG said on 16/May/11

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/11
Looks a strong 6"0 next to Rob...with better posture would look 186cm or 187cm

With Ejel if he stood straighter he'd oddly enough appear closer to 6"3 like 189cm or 190cm
Danimal said on 10/May/11
To all those who are comparing an aged Carl Weathers to a late 1980's Arnold is unfair. Whatever Carl Weathers is today in his pic with Rob, I assure you, he was even taller 25 years ago with Arnold and 35 years ago with Stallone..
Danimal said on 10/May/11
Brad says on 27/Apr/11
Hey CJ & Jon: get a clue: Stallone has built-in custom wedge in his footwear, he's wearing things to create an illusion he's not 5' 8.5". Throw out any Carl estimate by what you see, he's fooling you. Smith is 6' 1" at least, he looks taller being lean.

Why aren't you as logical when talking about 5'6.75" Tom Cruise?
Sam said on 9/May/11
Carl looks about 3 1/4 on Rob so maybe 5'11 1/2 at does he look 6'1 to people here I dont get it. No way there is even 4 inches between Rob and Carl.

My strong opionion he is 5'11 to 5'11 1/2.
burby said on 8/May/11
Great camera work when he was running on the beach with Stallone. Solid 6'1" Carl, under 5'9" Stallone.
Candyman said on 8/May/11
Looks about right. He is leaning a bit to the side dropping about 2/3 of an inch.
Yaspaa said on 2/May/11
Seemed a little taller being the operative word. Arnie looked shorter a few times in Predator barring the opening scene when he was in boots and carl was in dress shoes.
RisingForce said on 30/Apr/11
Correct, Lsu Alum, I believe Rob's estimate of Carl being 6'1" legit in the evening which makes Arnold's 6'1.5" evening measurement believebale since he seemed a little taller. It all adds up yet people REALLY want Arnold to be shorter.
Legend said on 30/Apr/11
Doesn't look quite 6'1 here.
LSU ALUM said on 29/Apr/11
This should also close the debate on Arnolds height. Arnold has always looked as tall or taller than Carl.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/11
Rob how tall did Carl look to you? what was he like aswell?

[Editor Rob: I saw him a few times and also standing beside other guests, and thought near 6ft 1 is fair. He was pleasant to talk to but sometimes with guests you have to give them something to go on.
Legend said on 27/Apr/11
Ejel is 5'8
astrago said on 27/Apr/11
great actor!

i stood next to him in LA 3 years ago, 6'1 on the money.
dmeyer said on 27/Apr/11
rob wath is the tallest sly could have been at peak height by evening

[Editor Rob: it's one of the 5 mysterious height questions on this site, I think if I was to be 5ft 9-9.5 rather than 5ft 8.5-9 range.]
Brad said on 27/Apr/11

tell-em said on 27/Apr/11
nice shots cj. stallone has the better overall posture. i'd bet sly and rob are the same height.
CJ said on 27/Apr/11
Another Click Here You know stallone probably had at least a small lift in too.
CJ said on 27/Apr/11
lol Rob looks taller next to Carl then Stallone did, Click Here

we aren't talking about when he wears his giant munsters.
the shredder said on 27/Apr/11
Brad , I give you lots of credit ... you took Glenn to the Bank ... you always thought less then 5'7 ... Also you know Sly at 5'7 is crap ... I disagree slightly on Sly , Damon , Vin Diesel and Seacreat ... I dont think there are as you estimate ... I must ask you this would you take Will Smith 6'1 to the bank ? I sure would .
the shredder said on 27/Apr/11
Jtm , 5'10 was not my estimate ... I was asking Rob ... But I think 5'9 is fair ... Really 5'7 is pure BS !
LSU ALUM said on 26/Apr/11
Just goes to show you that Arnold S. was 6'1.5" or 6'2".
d wade said on 26/Apr/11
lol dolph lungen had never more than 7 inches on stallone
Jon 183cm said on 26/Apr/11
ahhhhhh you got a picture with him!! coool dude, love him in predator and the rocky films. definately 6ft 1" minimum compared to dolph lundgren who had about 3 or 3.5in on him in rocky 4. next to stallone there was a clear 4in whether he's 5ft 9" or 5ft 10", always 4in between them
Dural said on 26/Apr/11
I can't believe people even consider more than 5'9" for Sly.
Brad said on 26/Apr/11
Rob doesn't wear custom made boxing shoes like Sly did with Carl. Sly has never been 5' 9" in his life, take it to the bank.
jtm said on 26/Apr/11
well if stallone is really 5'10 then ray liotta is 6'2 and dolph lundgren is 6'7.
Vegas said on 26/Apr/11
not that much shorter than a 1996 hulk hogan
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Apr/11
6"1.5(187cm) peak
6"0.75(185cm) today
the shredder said on 26/Apr/11
Rob , Sly looks taller then you next to Weathers ... would you be socked if he really is 5'10 range ?

[Editor Rob: it's unlikely sly was less than 5ft 9.]
ACG said on 25/Apr/11
Since he was so close to Arnold's height in Predator, he could have been 6'2" peak, provided he didn't have a footwear advantage over Arnie.
Lenad said on 25/Apr/11
6'1 max today
Jake T. said on 25/Apr/11
I don't know if Weathers ever hit 6'2 but 186 cm at peak could have been closer, and today maybe 6'0.5 just 1 cm less than this.
Ejel Khan said on 25/Apr/11
In response to:voiceless dental fricative says on 25/Apr/11
Rob, are you sure Ejel is 5'9?

I can assure you I'm 5'9", but the picture is deceiving. Carl was leaning over a table and I had my knees slightly bent, and was also leanoing over. When we both stood upright for a moment, I was able to roughly guage our respective heights. He did appear 6'1". Sorry the picture isn't a good one, we didn't have any of Carl's until now. With Rob you can have a better representation. However, I can assure you I'm 5'9".
J.J. said on 25/Apr/11
He looks 6'0" or 6'0.25" at most & for the record Michael Strahan is 6'4"
Dural said on 25/Apr/11
dmeyer says on 24/Apr/11
near 6 ft 1 if straight

Agreed, and a legit 6'1" peak.
ka said on 25/Apr/11
But definitely strong 6'1 at peak. Agree Larc, 186 peak, 185 now, was close enough to be eye to eye to 6'1.5 Arnie
Lenad said on 25/Apr/11
No way was he ever 6'2.
voiceless dental fricative said on 25/Apr/11
Rob, are you sure Ejel is 5'9?
James said on 24/Apr/11
Peak 6'1 (185cm)
Today 6'0.25 (184cm)

He's still a big guy
Viper said on 24/Apr/11
5-9.5 is so laughable for Sly that its hard not to
dmeyer said on 24/Apr/11
near 6 ft 1 if straight
Ace said on 23/Apr/11
Viper, can you go a single post without insulting someone? It's all you seem to do.
The Horse of FUNK said on 23/Apr/11
He looks about 6ft, James, but he's also leaning in towards Rob. I can easily believe he was a SOLID 6'1" in the past; EASILY 6'1" minimum for most of his years. Today? Hmmm, probably lost some height... Perhaps 6'0", maybe 6'0.5". He is at that age when gravity starts to breaks you down.
James said on 23/Apr/11
about 6ft with rob
Larc 6 ft 1.5 in said on 23/Apr/11
6'1.25 peak, just 6'1 or 6'0.75 at worse now, still 185cm...was eye to eye with Schwarzenegger in Predator.
Johan Cruyff said on 15/Apr/11
viper, SHUT UP! you cannot speak!
Viper said on 11/Apr/11
You suck at height If you think Sly is 5-9.5
Johan Cruyff said on 11/Apr/11
Carl Weather's height's are:

Morning (out of bed)= 6'1.25" (1.86 m)
After 1,5-3 hrs= 6'0.75" (1.85 m)
After 5-10 hrs= 6'0.5" (1.84 m)

Today he's not over 6 feet! I In Rocky he was exactly 4 inches (10 cm) over Sly, who was 5'9.5" (1.76 m) out of bed at his peak!
Ejel Khan said on 1/Apr/11
Lundgren claimed to be just shy of 6'6" during the making of Rocky 4. Carl appeared only 4" shorter at best. There was a greater differencial between Lungren and Stallone, so please go and pick on him instead!
truth said on 28/Mar/11
Ejel Khan said on 27/Mar/11
Guys I'm 5'9" ... scout's honour. For Carl he still may be bordering 6'2", its possible. Height differencial could be 4.5", or even 5". Goes to prove Carl is still close to 6'2"!
dominic said on 19/Mar/11
Even with Ejel in the foreground, height difference looks much bigger than 4inches.
Ejel Khan said on 10/Mar/11
Viper says on 25/Feb/11
Never 6-2. 6-1 peak

What do you base your argument on?
Ejel Khan said on 5/Mar/11
dmeyer ... I woz leaning back too! By a considerable amount, Carl was also leaning forward. I had a chance to estimate our height when we both stood upright before taking this pic. I can assure you I'm a genuine 5'9er!
dmeyer said on 26/Feb/11
how come he looks 4 in on ejel who is closer to the camera and carl in bending over he differance is more like 7 in maybe ejel is 5 ft 6.5
Viper said on 25/Feb/11
Never 6-2. 6-1 peak
Shaun said on 25/Feb/11
Toby says on 11/Feb/11
lol are you serious...lundgren wore lifts and they used other techniques to make him look taller, in reality he wouldnt be any taller then weathers

LOL you think Lundgren is 6 ft 1?
Editor Rob said on 25/Feb/11
some people by 60 might not have dropped much, or a small fraction, but then from 60-70 is when a lot of people start to drop more height. I think my own Dad started to about 3/4 inch from 60 to 70, in the last 5 years another 1cm maybe, he's now about 5ft 8.75
Tom said on 24/Feb/11
He wasn't "towered" by Dolph. Just watch the movie again and you'll see there's maximum 3 inches difference. Carl's a big man, around 6'2" at peak for sure.

Good angle shots from Rocky IV here:
Click Here
dmeyer said on 24/Feb/11
he did look a hair shorter than arnie at peak so 6 ft 1 how come he is steel 6 ft 1 maybe because he is in great shape so his bones are strong rob can somebody not drop any height by 60 i did notice that my father hasnt lost height from his mid 50 to mid 60s my father has huge bones strucure i got that to maybe that helps i wish i wouldnt drop any height as i age
Ejel Khan said on 24/Feb/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 24/Feb/11
Rob could 6"2(188cm) peak be possible?

[Editor Rob: well, according to the man himself, Arnie was the same height on Predator.

I think in person Carl still looks 6ft 1, so has he lost any height, I guess 1cm or so wouldn't be that improbable.]

Carl was listed as high as 6'3" in his football heydays, but admits to being 6'2" in his peak. Admittedly, he has lost some height. This is expected considering he's in his 60's now, but still a strong 6'1". So I concur with you Rob in your estimation.

Looked at least an inch shorter than Arnold in Predator and was towered by Dolph Lundgren in Rocky IV - 6' 1'' at absolute max
Icehole73 said on 28/Dec/10
Can someone super impose the arnold/ andre pic with the carl weathers/kiel photo? Make Arnold and Carl the same height. That should put andre next to big Rich.
Hugh 191cm said on 7/Jul/09
A solid 6ft2 in Happy Gilmore.
Hugh 191cm said on 7/Jul/09
Okay I think 186cm now and 188cm peak. 6ft3 is kind of extreme.
Ejel Khan said on 23/Jun/09
He's bending foward, and me back. When we were both upright, the difference was 4". Scout's honour, Carl is still a big man. Lkely was near to 6'3" in his sporting prime. 6'2" in his acting heyday, and a strong 6'1" now. I'm 5'9", and was 200lbs in that pic. I've lost weight now. I'm 182llbs, but still 5'9"!
Source said on 14/Jun/09
Ehm... He's bending forward in the picture...
Ejel Khan said on 21/May/09
Yes! Carl is still 6'1", and I'm a genuine 5'9" .... ok!
RisingForce said on 8/Apr/09
It's obvious that he's still atleast 6'1" compared to Ejel. He was very close to Arnie's height in Predator so I'd say he was more like 6'1.5"-6'2" peak.
Ejel Khan said on 28/Mar/09
Carl's records were accurate & verified .... he had a short, but distinguished career ..... Still a legend!
Yaspaa said on 27/Mar/09
Football measurements are rarely accurate and often bloated to make there teams seem more imposing.
Ejel Khan said on 24/Mar/09
King 9 ... ur right Carl was measured in his football days @ 6'2" & 220llbs ... he's not 6', but still 6'1"
Ramsey said on 23/Mar/09
I think he's a solid 6 feet. No more
RisingForce said on 12/Mar/09
We probably agree on more things than you think Ejel. All we've discussed if I'm not mistaken is Sly's height, Carl's height and Arnold's height. We obviously disagree on Sly, but we both have Arnold at around 6'2" when he was young and we agree on Carl's height.
Yaspaa said on 12/Mar/09
I dont think Sandler is quite the 5'10.
Yaspaa said on 11/Mar/09
3" above Sandler is 184.
King 9 said on 10/Mar/09
I have an Eagles vs Raiders program from Aug 1971. Carl Weathers is #49 and is listed as 6'2 220.
Ejel Khan said on 10/Mar/09
Risingforce ..... we agree on something at last!
Yaspaa said on 9/Mar/09
The thing is Ejel in Rocky 4 when he was face to face with Dolph in the ring even on his tiptoes still looked noticibly shorter,184.
RisingForce said on 9/Mar/09
Sandler is slouching terribly as always. Standing straight Sandler wouldn't be more than 3 inches shorter. I believe Carl was once 6'1.5" and now he may be 6'1" flat.
Ejel Khan said on 8/Mar/09
Yaspaa we'll agree to disagree! Carl is still tall & athletic 6'1" is a good estimate.
Yaspaa said on 8/Mar/09
When they have the arm wrestle it is clear that Arnie is taller and no way did he have that much height on Sandler.
Ejel Khan said on 7/Mar/09
Carl was the same height as Arnie in Predator .... he has atleast 4.5" over Sandler who is listed here as 5'10", but I'll give him 5'9.5" .... so Carl is not a weak 6'1", but maybe a little over!
Yaspaa said on 6/Mar/09

Yaspaa said on 6/Mar/09
He was shorter than Arnie in Predator,I think 6'0.5 or a weak 6'1 no more.
Ken A. said on 5/Mar/09
Carl Weathers is one of the most underated actors in the film and television
industry.Anyone who saw his performance in the television remake of the 1958
classic "THE DEFIANT ONES" can clearly see,unless they are blind or have dust
in their heads instead of brains,that Carl Weathers has as much talent and cha-
risma as Denzel Washington or Laurence Fishbourne.I was appalled that Mr. Weat-
ers did not receive an emmy nomination for that performance.It was a powerhouse
acting display and his co-star,the late Robert Urich,was equally sensational.
Who the hell cares how tall he is?.His fans should be bombarding the film stud-
ios and television networks with letters to try and get this talented actor so-
me decent acting projects.Yes,I have written many letters.None have ever been
answered.One can only do so much.Carl Weathers fans MUST JOIN TOGETHER IN DROVES.In November,Mr.Weathers did an impressive performance as the father of a
injured boxer on the series E/R. Again,his portrayal is worthy of an emmy nomi-
nation.Carl Weathers also has the distinction of starring on his own syndicated
action/drama series "STREET JUSTICE" for two years.Yet none of this seems to
matter to industry big-wigs.Also shocking is the lack of coverage given to him
by EBONY and JET magazines over the years.What little coverage they have given
him can best be described as a pathetic pittance.Come on people,get up off the
lazy-boys and help this man.If I were a major studio mogul,I would do an epic
remake of the classic adventure "DELIVERANCE" with a black cast.Mr.Weathers wo-
ld play the Burt Reynolds part,with Denzel Washington playing the Jon Voight
role.The Ronny Cox role would go to Samuel L.Jackson and the Ned Beatty part
would go to either James Avery or John Amos.Let's do something before he gets
to old to land good acting assignments.I challenge any true Carl Weathers fan
to respond to this.If anyone honestly feels that I am talking out my ass then
feel free to say so,but I don't think so.In fact,I really believe I have made
valid points.I would also like to hear some feedback about that wishful-think-
ing casting idea for a possible "DELIVERANCE"remake.I think I made excellent
casting choices.Let's hear how you feel.
Ejel Khan said on 9/Feb/09
Were both bending in the pic .... yes, Carl's still a big man!
Hugh said on 8/Feb/09
6ft2 in his prime surely? He's clearly bending in this pic. I'd say he could look 6ft2 or close if he stood properly. I think he may still be close to 6ft2. Still looks quite tall there.
Ejel Khan said on 29/Jan/09
6'1" nowadays seem right ..... peak 6'2" for sure. Even Arnie admits to have shrunk recently. He now admits to being 6'1".
Mr. R. said on 24/Jan/09
yep, he is 6-1. saw him at both Carroll O'Connor and Robert Yurich's funerals.
carl5 said on 23/Jan/09
I met him in Sweden 3 month ago i stood next to him and he was at least 6'1 (185cm).
runt said on 14/Jan/09
Looks like those cocked deisel guys lose a lot of height as they age.

I think Carl needs a peak height as well. Seemed more 6-1.5 in Rocky and football days. Wasn't all THAT much shorter than Drago.
Ejel Khan said on 13/Jan/09
I'm only giving my opinion Henk ... it's a free country! Yes, he's still a big guy!
Henk82 said on 13/Jan/09
Ejel: lol, i am about 6.3 (191-192 cm) and weight 205-210, he got much bigger stomage,arms and is bigger then me and i have weight train for 3 years:P he is easily a 220 guy. Maybe i should post a picture of myself from that particular convention and show how thin i am:P
Jordan said on 12/Jan/09
Yeah Henk82 about 220 he was listed on his raider football roster. He was listed in the NFL at 6'2 and 220 pounds.

Sly's slippers seem to have a weirdly thick sole in the pictures.
And fully erect Weathers would have at least 3.5 inches on Sly.

Stallone = 5 ft 10 in - 5 ft 10.5 in
Weathers = 6 ft 1.5 in - 6 ft 2 in

I can agree with those estimates. They seem accurate.
Ejel Khan said on 12/Jan/09
Carls about 210 llbs in my estimation!
Henk82 said on 12/Jan/09
Good video that shows how tall Carl really are, he is atleast 6.2 and i would guees 220-225 pounds.
He had almost same outfit and shoes when i met him 2 months ago.

This one is interesting because in Rocky...with both in boxing shoes, Stallone looks 2 inches shorter than Carl at his peak.
Ejel Khan said on 11/Jan/09
James, I've met plenty of celebs! Carl was a true gent, and i consider him a legend. He's still a big man in size, and stature. Often listed as 6'2", he describes himself as that, on his myspace page. He was even listed as 6'3" in his NFL days, where they supposedly measured him! Nowadays ... I would be generous and say, he probarbly is still 6'1.5" .... ok!
Brad said on 10/Jan/09
His spine looks shot. His shoulders are falling off.
RisingForce said on 10/Jan/09
Hugh says on 9/Jan/09
Might be a bit more than 6ft1.

Certainly in his peak I'd say he was 6-1.5 or 6-2. Maybe now 6-1 flat is accurate though.
Ejel Khan said on 10/Jan/09
No James ... I've met a lot of celebs. I work in the entertainment industry.

6'2 looks spot on
Gago said on 9/Jan/09
I see him at Gold's Gym all the time, he has great posture and is 185/6'1.
Derek said on 9/Jan/09
Easy 6'1". Probably 6'1" and some change.

Ejel Khan said on 9/Jan/09
I'm sorry the photo wasn't a good representation of the day! Promise, when we stood, the differencial was 4". Scouts honour!
RisingForce said on 9/Jan/09
Weathers never looked much taller than Stallone or Mr. T. He had about 5 inches on Burt Young but in general Carl was probably atleast 6-1 1/2. Now he still looks like he'd be well over six feet if he stood straight. 6-1 seems correct now, but 6-1 1/2 or 6-2 in his prime.
Ejel Khan said on 9/Jan/09
We were both slightly leaning over a table. I stood fully erect besides him. I estimated a 4" difference. Making him 6'1".
The Ben said on 9/Jan/09
There looks to be 3 inches between them, 5'9ish stallone and 6'1ish weathers. weathers could be 6'2.
Great pictures though, theres lots great comparisons of these 2.
If we know ones height for sure the we know the others.
Does anyone have weathers stats from his American football days?
I always thought he was 6'3 but its obvious he was 6'2 tops, more likely 6'1.
The man will always be a legend to me!
Danimal said on 9/Jan/09
He looks SEVERELY hunched back. Is that his TRUE posture? If so, he has developed severe osteoporosis over the years.
Anonymous3 said on 8/Jan/09
6'1-6'1.5 maybe 6'1.25 I can buy.
Marty said on 8/Jan/09
@ Rising Force : in the picture below if Weathers was standing fully erect his eyes would be at the height of the top of Sly's head. Don't forget that Sly's hair had mega-volume back then lollll
Brad said on 8/Jan/09
Everybody in Predator was wearing massive ones. I think it was a contest to see who looked the biggest. Arnold was an easy 6' 2" in Predator. He looked like a one man army in that one: just huge. Look at Sly & Carl training. Sly had his wedged up custom boots at the shop being worked on by the italian cobbler. He looks funny jumping off the canvas to hit Carl. At 5' 8.5" you have to do that.
Markus said on 8/Jan/09
He looks hunched over, or his neck is real short ?
Looks like a very strong 6'1" i.m.o.
RisingForce said on 4/Jan/09
JohnG, Weathers had 3" MAX on Sly in Rocky 3.

Look at them when they are on the beach liftless.

Here they are and Sly is in SLIPPERS
Click Here

If he stood straight he'd have 3" MAX on Sly.

Carl Weathers- 6-1.5(peak), 6-1 now
Sly- 5-10.5, 5-10.75
JohnG said on 3/Jan/09
Stallone is much, much shorter than Weathers. I think Weathers in Rocky II is about 6'1'' and Stallone looks 5'9 at most (and the hair over his head is easily close to a couple of inches high!). Look at the scenes where they (Apollo and Rocky) are running together. Or look at the scenes where they are"dancing" together, while training in the gym. In those scenes, Weather is CLEARLY half a head taller than Stallone (4 inches, maybe more). Now, look in Rocky IV how Stallone looks ridiculously short (like a dwarf) next to Dulgren (Russian "Drago"), a whole head shorter, while Weathers (Apollo) looks just a bit shorter than Drago. In fact, to me Drago vs. Apollo, size-wise, looks like a balanced fight of heavy-weight boxers, unlike Rocky-Drago or even Rocky-Apollo, which look ridiculous (a tiny guy (Rocky) versus a big and much more muscular guy (Drago and Apollo). Anybody thinking Stallone is 5'10" or taller, is totally wrong. And everybody thinking Weathers is any shorter than 6'1" is wrong too. Regarding Arnold, his peak height had always been 6'2, in Predator that was his height. I guess he started really shrinking probably when he hit 50 years old, and now the poor guy looks 5'11", but he had always been 6 feet two, any bodybuilder knows that.
TNTinCA said on 1/Jan/09
I think 6'1" is correct. He did appear shorter than Arnie in predator.
Rafael said on 9/Dec/08
In the movie rocky 4 he claims 6
Roger said on 8/Dec/08
It should be added, though - there is a scene where Weathers looks marginally taller than Arnold, too, in Predator. So 6'2'' peak is imaginable.

Sly in 0.5" max slippers and Carl in 1" sneakers. Sly is 5'10.75" and Carl at his peak was 6'1.25" or 6'1.5".

That's less than a 3 inch difference and Sly didn't have lifts in slippers(you can see his ankles and lifts wouldn't fit in slippers. If anything Carl has the footwear advantage as he appears to be in Nike shoes.

Carl- 6'1" or 6'1.5" max
Sly- 5'10.75"

The photos above back that up.

Hi, I just came on this page for the first time and your photos didn't work when I clicked them. Anyway you can post them again?
RisingForce said on 4/Nov/08
Well then that means Sly must be 5'10.75" since he wasn't that much shorter in slippers.
henk82 said on 2/Nov/08
I met Carl weathers today at a Scifi convention in Stockholm. He is a really BIG guy and i would guees almost my height and i am 6.3/5. He is certainly much wider then me also and have huge hands! Under 6.1 is impossible for Apollo Creed. It was nice to schock his hand and meet him but he seemed pretty arrogant and not so talkative, probably cuz off my crapy english haha

carl weathers at the moment is at least 6'0'. He seems quite big in Arrested Development, not much shorter than Will Arnett who is 6'2-2.5
As for comparisons with stallone, i dont think you can wear lifts and box or run around. check out this video
Click Here
Seems like there is 3 inches between them at the most. 6'1 CWeathers and 5'10 stallone
Lenad said on 17/Oct/08
Arnie had at least 1 inch on Carl. Arnie was never taller than 6'2 i know that.
Ralph said on 17/Oct/08
Met Mr. T at my job. I towered over him and I'm 6.0. At best he's 5.9 which makes Sly 5.6 and Carl Weathers at 5.10 to 6.0

What ever you guys think of Carl, I have met him and he's a wonderful guy! He's also a legend to boot and the height estimate for him at 6'1" seems right!

was stallone wearing his lifts in the ring though. during their toe to toe shots i don't recall sly being that much shorter than carl. and i watched those films a lot.
Mr. R said on 12/Aug/08
I saw Carl at two different funerals, and he is 6-1.
Scott B said on 2/Aug/08
little one: Did you see the Lifts stallone wore in Rocky? Carl Weathers looks to be 6'1 in his Prime easy.
Anonymous said on 16/Jul/08
On closer consideration, Weathers actually looked somewhat shorter than Schwarzenegger in the arm wrestling scene in 'Predator' and that was at his peak. I'd give him 6' 0" to 6' 0.75".
Adam said on 11/Jul/08
Looks more or less exactly the same height as Schwarzenegger in 'Predator'. The latter was never 6' 2", he was 6' 1.5".
little one said on 2/Jul/08
since when has carl weather been 6'1???? he has been generally regarded as 6'0 tops in the rocky days. he is certainly not that much taller than stallone.
glenn said on 26/Apr/08
the pics wont pop up for me.cant get to a pc right now.most of the time they do on my blackberry type of stallone height(5-10.5,5-10.75) do have a tendency to look 5-9.i see it in my friends all the time.sometimes its their hips.not just the shoulders and backs for posture.
anonymous said on 25/Apr/08
i think stallone forgot to wear his lifts Click Here
Glenn, stallone also does not appear to be close to 5`10.75 in this shot Click Here
Although i will agree with you. He does look close to 5`11 in rocky 2 wearing slippers.
glenn said on 25/Apr/08
huh? are you kidding me? are we still discussing this? its a known fact they had opponents stand on boxes in the rocky movies.who wants to see rocky fight a small guy or someone his height? duh.obviously they want someone more threatening.

but glenn, wouldn't that make mr. t about 6`0.5 Click Here

compare to sly and arnie he dosnt look over 6 ft ,but carl can look 6'2 in some pics
Darkfalz said on 4/Feb/08
I think he's 6'0" in the 1980s - just not enough taller than Sly to be be more than that, and shoter than 6'1.5" Arnie by at least an inch, maybe more.
dmeyer said on 17/Jan/08
maybe they are both 6'1 but arnie had bigger shoes,
Ejel Khan said on 1/Jan/08
Carl Weathers is 6'1-1.5". I was lucky to have met him and taken a photo with him. In it I'm standing next to him I'm 5'9" he appears 4" taller, so he's a maximum 6'1.5"! Yes he was taller in the past, his Football records state he was 6'2". People do shrink as they get older you know, end of subject!
calcony said on 16/Oct/07
Met Carl today and took a picture with him. I'm about 6' 1/2" and I was wearing boots. In the picture he is about 1" taller than me and he was wearing black Reebok walking shoes. From this I would believe him to be very close to if not actually 6 feet 2 inches tall.
guy said on 19/Sep/07
A very tall cast for predator. I always thought Carl appeared the smallest though I have not seen the film in a while.

Didnt Arnold actually look shorter when they gripped hands together in the beginning?
CarbonM5 said on 14/Aug/07
How can Weathers be listed at 6-1 yet looks much shorter than Arnold who some debate as being shorter than 6ft???!?? Because, in my opinion, Weathers is 6 to 6-1 and Arnold is 6-2.
Jason said on 20/Jul/07
Carl Weathers never looked 6'2'' to me, either. 6'1'' sounds right.
Viper said on 20/Jul/07
Arnold never hit 6-2 in his life. 99 percent of everyone here even agrees with that now.
Marty said on 18/Jul/07
Arnold was a legit 6'2 in his younger years, stop the downgrading guys, it gets redundant. How can someone use the "biceps bulging scene" from Predator to judge who's taller between Arnie and Weathers ? The camera angle they took is terrible to judge the height of any of those two compared to one another. Stallone's definitaly no taller than 5'10 barefoot, and Weather was at least 6'1 - 6'1.5 barefoot back then.
dmeyer said on 4/Jul/07
arnie did look 1 in taller so arnie was a genuine tall guy

arnie was 2 to 2.5 cm over him in predator and carl was about 186 or 187 rocky looked only 2.5 inches shorter so sly can look 5'11 even in rocky with no heeled trainers weird

I think Carl is 6'05" without shoes. He may very well be 6'1". I never met him in person. In the movie "Predator" he looked to be very close in height to Arnold.

Actually I looked again. it was more like 3 inches taller than stallone. He was probably about 6'1" but then shrunk to about 6'0 .25 or 6'0 1/2"
That's where I think he is at.
Glenn said on 25/May/06
Plant has nothing to do with this,but its the only one of Robs I disagree with the most.Ill ask around about Carl could be right.
Viper652 said on 25/May/06
Ayreon, linebackers can be on the short side or very tall. Most linebackers are between 6-0 to 6-3, so I dont get your reasoning that they cant be tall.
Glenn said on 24/May/06
One friend of mine who is 6ft.5,said Carl was taller.and alot of you people never read what Rob says on top of the page.he is pretty accurate.I may disagree on some,but we all disagree.having Robert Plant at 5-11 is too low.
Glenn said on 21/May/06
I just felt you had attitude in that could be right about him.he did look short next to Ford,but tall according to my friends.I never met him.most evidence points him closer to 6-1 though.

Thats not what the vast majority says.Im better than you at juding and more mature.I only act immature when someone gets stupid.

Well thats what my friend told me.the shortest he is,is watch your DVDS and Ill meet the stars in the flesh.YOU FORGET ITBUDDY.dont get stupid with friend is 6-1,and he said he was taller.heels? lifts? who knows.Ford is 6-1,not 5-11 like some people what Rob says on every page,he is pretty accurate,instead of downgrading people constantly like most folks to make one feel good about themselves.I speak the truth.Im glad I ripped you a new a**hole.there was no need for attitude.get what you give.

How can you put Carl @ 6'1 and Arnold @ 6'0 editor Rob ..?
Height Tracker said on 13/Feb/06
Carl Weathers probably really is 6'1". In addition, I watched Predator just recently. At the beginning, when he and Arnie bulge biceps, Weathers does seem slightly shorter. However, they could have been wearing different footwear or lifts, etc. There was one scene though where Arnold and Carl Weatehrs are both wearing the same exact boots and they get in each other's faces. Specifically this is the scene where Arnie confronts Weathers about how he set them up and stuff. In this scene, Weathers seems around an inch taller, leading me to believe that Arnie's height in predator was about 6'-6'.5"
Viper652 said on 9/Feb/06
Arnie looks no taller then 5-11 in Predator. Weathers is about 6-1.
Arthur said on 8/Feb/06
interesting, why in "predator", he seems taller than Arnold. To me, he is at least 6-2.
TNTinCA said on 8/Feb/06
I am curious: if the statement above indicates that Carl was shorter than Arnie in that movie (which was obvious), how come Arnie's height on celebheights is less than that of Carl's?
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Aug/05
From gossip newsgroup: "Carl Weathers is a LOT smaller and less imposing in RL than on screen, he was also nice"
Ball-A-Hallic said on 31/May/05
I heard from a friend that Weathers is only 5'11,5'11.5 tops he might of been 6'0.5 in his prime,but in Happy Gilmore he looks no more than 3 inches over 5'9 Adam Sanders.

In Rocky Sly's looks 5'11 and Apollo(Weathers)is about 6'2 but they say they boost their heights up in the movie cause when Apollo fights The Russian Ivan Drago Apollo is towered by him and Drago's only 6'5 and Apollo looks about 6'0 compared to Drago

He's not quite 6'2". He may be just over 6'1". I spoke to him at both funerals, and he was maybe 1.5 inches taller than me, no more.

No... he's juts about 6'2. A true example is "Predator"...

Surprisingly taller than expected - they must have done a lot for those camera angles in Rocky - saw at both Carroll O'Connor's and Robert Urich's funerals.
