How tall is Dolph Lundgren

Dolph Lundgren's Height

6ft 2 ½ (189.2 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 4 ¼ (193.7 cm)
Swedish actor, best known for roles in films such as Rocky 4, Showdown in Little Tokyo, Masters of the Universe, Aquaman, Red Scorpion, Dark Angel and The Expendables. In Impact magazine, he revealed early in his career, his towering stature caused him some problems, saying he "Was turned down at my first audition for Rocky 4 for being too tall. I was 6ft 5in and you were supposed to be 6ft 3in maximum. I didn't know what the casting call was for and I just showed up, they asked me how tall I was, I said 6ft 5in and they said "Next!". In the Mid 1980's he also said "I'm about 195cm" and "6ft5 and a half", although more recently on tv4's website, it mentioned: "Du är 198 cm lĺng." - "Nej, 193 tror jag att det ska vara", which asked him if he was 1.98m, to which Dolph said "no, 193cm".
His action oriented film roles over the last 25 years has contributed to at least an inch of height loss by 2016. In 2012 he mentioned his weight: "I'm 6ft 5, weigh about 17 and a half stone [245 pounds] and take size 12 shoes". In this convention photo I had a 1/4 inch more sneaker than him.

[Height Comparison]
"I'm 6-foot-6," he says.
And Stallone?
"He's 5-foot-10. I don't know exactly, but around there."
Not quite 5-foot-10?
"That's what you say. I didn't say it, did I? Whatever it is, there's a big difference between us. But still, to make the difference seem even greater, he had me stand on a box sometimes."
-- Bismark Tribune, 1986

The average guess and robs listing are pretty close to the truth

Dolph looking clearly taller than Lou Ferrigno again last month: Click Here What are the chances that Dolph is standing better post-surgeries and could still hit 6'3" like Patrick Wilson said? He can still sometimes look it, yet other times doesn't look like he'd be above 189-190 cm range, but if he is closer to 6'2.5" then what's Ferrigno down to? 6'2" flat at most?!
Rising174cm said on 4/Jan/21
@Canson: Yeah, in 2003, Dolph wasn't more than 3 cm shorter than 196 cm minimum Ralf Moeller: Click Here Click Here Whether Dolph made it to 45-46 without any loss is unknown, but we also have Dolph looking taller with 6'8" Scott L. Schwartz in 1999 than a cowboy boot wearing Steven Seagal did a few years earlier. Minimum, Dolph was 193 cm at his low. I'd guess him that to be safe, though his early 195 cm claim could have been from a 9 AM doctor visit barefoot or possibly he measured it in boxing shoes during Rocky 4, but I think that figure comes from somewhere. If Brandon Lee really was 182 cm then Dolph looked the 195 cm with him and a slouching Dolph looked absolutely massive with Alan Light, whom I'm fairly sure was around 179 cm in shoes. Dolph is one more person I really want to hear Brigitte Nielsen's peak estimate for along with Arnold. Incidentally, if you recall, a still near peak Arnold looked much shorter than Dolph on video in the mid 90s.

Nowadays, I think Dolph might hit 190 cm with his big head standing tall for a measurement as he still sometimes looks it. It's also possible he's down to 189, but I've seen nothing to suggest he's lower. At 63 with a double hip replacement and years of dreadful posture, there's nothing surprising about losing 3-4 cm. Dolph admitted he'd been standing in pain for years before the surgery.
Canson said on 1/Jan/21
@Rising: btw I remember with Frank Ntilikina you mentioned a possibility of a bit under 6’4”. That’s even more a possibility being he’s only listed 6’4 by the knicks now. I wonder with Hardaway JR if he isn’t a legit 6’4.5” guy though (meaning in the afternoon).
Canson said on 1/Jan/21
@Olympian: I wouldn’t go under 6’4” for his peak height. He really did look it in his prime. See him with Ralf Moeller and he only looked maybe 3cm or 1.5” shorter. Rob could even have it right with his listing here but nothing less than 6’4” flat imho

Height_Guesser said on 30/Dec/20
6’ 3.75”, 192 cm peak) 6’ 2.5”, 189 cm now) looked 7 inches taller than Rocky in the movie.
Olympian said on 24/Dec/20
I saw Dolph Lundgren in Masters of the Universe last year in Summer 2019. He seemed a really big 6'3 guy to me. I wasn't sure he would have been a solid 6'4. Definitely taller than 6'2, he seemed more of a 6'3-6'4 guy to me. I'd say 6'3.75 at peak height and maybe 6'2-range today.
Eric W Tam said on 16/Dec/20
Looks like he has claimed everywhere between 6'3 and 6'6 when he was only 6'4-5 max and under 6'3 these days.
Rocky1976-1985 said on 4/Dec/20
I think Stallone in all honestly was 5’ 8.5”-5’ 8.75” and Drago looked almost 7 inches inches taller than him. I’d say Lundgren was 6’ 3.5” to 6’ 3.75” peak and now is 6’ 2.5” range. Fantastic actor and great character in the beloved Rocky Series.
RJT said on 4/Dec/20

Yeah that pic proved that Lundgren was easily this listing. Look very tall out there with Sly.
Vincent Caleb said on 27/Nov/20
He can give a similar impression to Goldblum as a solid 6’4.25”. I think this listing is fine, 6’4-6’4.5” is likely.
Patrick L Boyle said on 27/Nov/20
Where's Matthias Hues? A big kung fu bad guy in Lundgren films. 6'4"? Also Trump's 14 year old kid BARON also looks 6'4".
Soda machine said on 26/Nov/20
6-4 peak. Now 6-2
Duhon said on 24/Nov/20
I'm sure this has been posted before but a nice behind the scenes photo to gauge how tall Lundgren and Stallone really were next to each other without the boxes, or camera angles or shoe lifts etc. Click Here
Soda machine said on 24/Nov/20
The hoff always looks taller. Hoff is a genuine 6-4 guy maybe a bit over. Dolph will look 6-5 if sly is claiming 5-10. Imo Dolph wasn’t over 6-4.
George89 said on 22/Nov/20
I had some fun with a life sized cardboard cut out today which is exactly the same height as me (173cm). Depending on what angle the photo was taken, whether I was on the left or right hand side and how good or poor my posture was, the photos looked wildly different. From me looking an inch and a half taller than the cutout or an inch shorter. The photos on here can be distorted and posture is ever changing. I would go by what Rob says he thinks the celebrity is and not believe a photo unless all the conditions for the photo were perfect which they virtually never are. Anyways I think Dolph is losing height in this photo due to angle and posture. He's 6ft2.5/3 now and 6ft4 plus peak.
Canson said on 18/Nov/20
I doubt Lundgren was only 6’3.5 peak height. I could see a case for 6’4” flat at times but I could easily see the listed height too. Some could argue 6’4.5 by how he appears although I think that’s only something he measures after a couple hours on his feet
Bobadob said on 18/Nov/20
6-3.5 peak. Now weak 6-2. It’s easy to claim 6-5 if Stallone is claiming 5-10!!
James Brett 172cm said on 14/Nov/20
seagal might have been long limbed but he didnt have a small head though. jeff goldblum not only had a small but was also very long limbed which is why he looked taller than seagal
Arch Stanton said on 13/Nov/20
A guy like Seagal you always have to be careful with footwear, he could pass for near 6'5 at times (like in Fire Down Below) because of his boots.
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
@James B: while Seagal looked a legit 6’4” some others here appeared to be legitimately more 6’4” looking on occasion. Seagal gave a taller impression to others because of his build. He was very long limbed. I don’t doubt that he was a legit 6’4” but I doubt it was anything over the mark. I’d say 6’4.75 out of bed
James B 172c, said on 10/Nov/20
I agree Carson I can’t see seagal as over 6’4 peak so he should get a downgrade 1/8 inch downgrade.
Canson said on 7/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: Seagal should get a 6’3 flat listing. That’s the max he looks with you which is reasonable. 6’4 flat peak 1” lost today afternoon
Almost 180cm guy said on 5/Nov/20
Hi Rob! There is something I don't understand. Why Dolph next to you look like 6ft 1.75 at most (even with the shoe difference)? Likewise, Steven Seagal next to you looks like he has a maximum of 6ft 2.25, yet you listed Dolph as 6ft 2.5 and Seagal as 6ft 3.25. Why they don't look as tall in the photos with you as you mentioned them?
Editor Rob
I'd add another bit to dolph for posture.
I did see more of Seagal in the photo area, sometimes I've been in those areas longer than you are meant to...I feel he was varying from a solid 6ft 2 up to solid 6ft 3 in photos with attendees. He was taller in person than Dolph in any case.

🎂🎈🎊🎁 Happy Birthday Dolph! 🎁🎊🎈🎂

Many Happy Returns to Dolph Lundgren, who celebrates his 63rd Birthday today.
He looked so HUGE in Rocky VI, and really quite scary! I found 196cm for his height on the Birthday Site just now, obviously referring to his peak, but I don't think it came out of the father-of-two-daughter's mouth for one solitary moment! 😉

Peak height - 6ft4.25 💪😁
Today's height - 6ft2.5 😄🍻

194cm for peak dolph and around 189cm now.his brother peak could have been close to 6ft6 at peak. ,maybe 197cm peak for his brother.

He could still be 189.5 current

He's no way as low as 6'2 1/2" he's at least 6'3"

a tad over 6'4" peak and I agree he's around 6'2.5" now
realone1 said on 21/Sep/20
Listing is perfect. Dolph is a strong 6'2 guy like 6'2.5.
Here with Carl Weathers:
Click Here
I think he lost 1.5 inch so 6'4 peak. His own claim was 193 cm which is 6ft4

Peak Goldblum would have a slight edge on peak Lundgren if I had to guess.
Tall Sam said on 31/Aug/20
Hard to picture Jeff Goldblum look as towering as Dolph did near Sly Stallone in Rocky 4 but having seen pictures of Dolph through the years, yeah he was actually no taller than Jeff.
Canson said on 31/Aug/20
@Rampage: that’s how I have them. Worst case, Dolph could’ve been a solid 6’4” or somewhere in between but I classify a weak 6’6” as someone who dips to 6’5.5” at their normal low and that’s where I have Moeller. Moeller looks exactly how Rob lists him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/20
Lundgren - strong 6ft4
Moeller - weak 6ft6
Canson said on 30/Aug/20
@JamesB172: I doubt he was a solid 6’4.5”. Now I can see an afternoon 6’4.25” like Rob lists him
Arch Stanton said on 29/Aug/20
Remember though that the listings on here are lowest estimated barefoot heights, them at their lows. Both Dolph and Goldblum in certain scenes in films it might have been shot early morning time so they might have genuinely been nearer 6'5. That's what you've got to note when judging height from films, sometimes they have crazy 18 hours a day shoots! I have great respect for some of the top, successful directors because I know what it takes to direct a film successfully and the extreme pressure they face with deadlines.
Canson said on 28/Aug/20
@RJT: he used roids back in the day
James B 172cm said on 27/Aug/20
Goldblum could have potentially been 6’4 1/2 peak rising
Canson said on 27/Aug/20

My guess for him are:


Out of bed: 6’5 max maybe 6’4 7/8” (no lower than 6’4.75)
Lunch: 6’4 3/8” max maybe 6’4.25 (no less than 6’4 1/8”)
Afternoon and beyond not including an extreme low: 6’4.25 max maybe 6’4 1/8” (no less than a solid 6’4)”

Since He could look only 3cm lower than Moeller who I guess similar to how you did

Out of bed 199/199.5 cm
Lunch 197-197.5
Afternoon 196.5-197

I give the latter a stronger chance of losing maybe 7/8” or maybe In that .8-.9 range since he’s slightly taller than Lundgren. Moeller is a very good example of a peak 6’5.5” guy. I easily see him being over 6’6” out of bed and approaching 6’6.5 perhaps no less than maybe 6’6 1/4-3/8 range (weak 6’6.5 range)
Canson said on 27/Aug/20
I agree with Rising. Dolph at his peak was close to my height. At their peaks Moeller was only Max 1.5” shorter than Moeller min 1.25”.
Canson said on 27/Aug/20
I agree with Rising. Dolph at his peak was close to my height
Black Noir said on 26/Aug/20
Hey RJT, wrote to you on sookies den ☺️ Also I think you are similar height to Dolph lundgren
Willes190 said on 26/Aug/20
That’s fair Rising. I think a lot of people – including me –forget how tall he was back in the day, especially after seeing the picture with Rob. Looking at the pictures you provided has made me change my opinion to 6ft4⅛.
RJT said on 26/Aug/20
When people lost noticeable height, in Dolph's case he almost lose 2", do you think it's because his spine got "shorter" or because of injury, he couldn't stand as tall/straight as he used to?
Rising174cm said on 24/Aug/20
Nah, Dolph and Goldblum were probably just about identical in height. Both seemed like solid 6'4" guys who never dropped below that height and may very well have measured 1/4" to 1/8" over. For a reminder of how tall Dolph was. 6'8" Scott L. Schwartz had 3" to 3.5" max on Dolph in 1999 in a full shot: Click Here As you can see in the other pic, 6'4" Steven Seagal was wearing cowboy boots for the film Fire Down Below in 1997, yet he was still not as tall next to Schwartz as Dolph was. Now look at Dolph with Michael Rapaport, whom Rob lists at 6'2.5" in 1995: Click Here Rapaport is/was a minimum 6'2" yet there's no way Dolph was less than 2" taller.

Here's Dolph looking only about an inch shorter than Ralf Moeller in 2003: Click Here Click Here Ralf was likely 6'5.25"-6'5.5" at the time. Ralf couldn't have been any shorter than 196 cm and the height difference between them in the gym was no more than 3 cm. Also easily a couple of inches taller than 6'2" Fred Williamson in the late 90s:

Now look at Dolph slouching a bit with Alan Light in 1990: Click Here Light was probably 5'9.5" and claimed 5'10.5", which makes sense a shoe height, yet Dolph looks 7" next to him with clearly more casual posture. Looking easily 6'4"+ with Charlie Sheen in the late 80s: Click Here Note that Dolph appears to have a wider stance and since he's dressed as a lifeguard, there's a good chance he was in flip flops or possibly even barefoot. Also looking an easy 6'4" with 5'11" listed Cary Tagawa in 1999: Click Here and in 1991, Dolph with shoes looked over half a foot taller than Tagawa in bare feet, especially when you consider he's dropping height with a wider stance/bent knee: Click Here Click Here And for god measure, Dolph with a full head on 5'6" Brian Benben 30 years ago: Click Here Benben is a bit closer to the camera, which is positioned on his side and Dolph's head is easily 10"-10.25".

As you can see, Dolph could look 6'4.5"-6'5" at times, though his barefoot height was obviously more 6'4"-6'4.25" range, much like Goldblum. He was still a legit 6'4" in 2003, though appeared to staet shrinking noticeably a few years after that. Now, Dolph is almost 63 years old, had a double hip replacement, has slouched very noticeably for years now and I believe had some sort of back problem. Even a normal man will lose about 1 inch by 65. Nowadays, I'd guess Dolph at 190 cm or weak 6'3" range. I don't rule out him stretching up to a full 6'3" for a measurement, but just below is more likely, imo. Funny enough, Goldblum has also lost a lot of height and like Dolph, bad posture can make him look as short as 187 cm range at times. I'd guess Goldblum at about 6'3" these days, but while I don't think he was any taller than Dolph peak, there's a good chance he's a little taller these days.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Aug/20
His new missus actually looks like she could be his daughter, and young enough to have been a baby by the looks of it when he made Silent Trigger! He still looks good for his age and is rich so you can't blame him!
Hulk.23 said on 21/Aug/20
I think maybe at theirs peak then maybe Goldblum would have edged Lundgren by a quarter of an-inche. I think Lundgren was a strong 6’4 while Goldblum a little over
Canson said on 20/Aug/20
Willes190 said on 18/Aug/20
Goldblum would edge Lundgren.

We will never know. It’s possible. Goldblum was lankier giving a taller impression but They may very well have been identical.
Willes190 said on 18/Aug/20
Goldblum would edge Lundgren.
Canson said on 17/Aug/20
He was certainly at least 6’4” peak. Whether he was above the mark and how much over is debatable
Hulk.23 said on 17/Aug/20
@Frank Col, actually I think he ever been taller than 6’2 as you said even today. I think, like for Arnold, he had a great shrinkage because he used when was young some anabolic substance which can give this effect to the body. Of course when he stand next to Stallone (who never been shorter at peak than 5’8.5-9) he was on a box to give the impression to be taller but in others scene he towered over actors like Carl Weathers (who was a strong 6’1/185cm at peak as Big Rob listed him) and Brigitte Nielsen (who is hard to believe was shorter than 182cm at peak). I think 6’4/193cm for his peak is the best listing.
Frank Col said on 15/Aug/20
It amuses me how many people on here base his height on Rocky IV. Ivan Drago was supposed to be 7 foot so they made him look tall! When 5ft 7 Stallone is in the ring squaring up he has no lifts and Lundgren is on a box! During Apollos fight he appears to tower over Carl Weathers but at the London Comic Convention they were the same height and this is evident also during their fight in a few shots. I was at that Convention and Lundgren was no more than 6ft 1 and slightly built. 6ft 4 inch men dont shrink that much look at John Cleese and Christopher Lee so I think he was never taller than 6ft 2 and he lied about his height to boost Stallones in Rocky. Look at Hulk Hogan in Rocky III who does look 7ft next to Stallone without camera tricks and he was only an inch taller than Lundgren reckons he was.
Willes190 said on 10/Aug/20
@Slim: That’s fair. Although I’m starting to question if he ever was above 6ft4, especially after watching Showdown In Little Tokyo.
Hulk.23 said on 8/Aug/20
I think he was strong 6’4/193cm at peak while today a strong 6’2 seems fair. Of course 1,5” loss is a great amount for his age...
Slim 6'1" said on 7/Aug/20
not that much height loss i reckon 189.5 today
Alir?za said on 5/Aug/20
5 cm is massive shrink. He is not very old guy. Only 62 years old. And he was 58 years old at this photo. My father is 55 years old and he still doesn't shrink. Probably he will shrink as low as 6'1 or even 6 ft at age 75-80. But he is still very handsome big dude

@James B: but just because they’re listed a certain way doesn’t mean they’re that tall. Conan O’Brien I would bet money doesn’t measure a full 6’4 afternoon height. I’ve seen guys who really are 6’4 edge him far too Often. Mickie claims to have met him and is 6’3.25 and guessed him as around his height 6’3.25/6’3.5. He really looks a weak 6’4 guy max

Canson that’s true I mean wrestler Sid Eudy was once listed at 6’7 but he turned out actually to be 6’6. In fact Poster Frank who is 5’11 1/2 saw him in street clothes at 6’5-6’6.

If Dolph looked 6-5 in the 80s which I don’t believe how was hasselhoff always looking taller? He’s a legit 6-4 guy. Dolph imo was never over 6-4 prime. He looked no more than 6-4 next to a 5-8 guy claiming 5-10 stallone.
Canson said on 5/Jul/20
@Arch: yea my guesses at peaks are

Goldblum 6’5 out of bed, 6’4 3/8 lunchtime, 6’4.25 afternoon

Lundgren: same as Goldblum or maybe within 1/8” of him. No worse than 1/4” less

Neeson: 6’4.75 or best case 6’4.75-6’4 7/8 out of bed, 6’4 1/8-1/4 lunchtime, 6’4-6’4 1/8 afternoon. Could fall in between or to the low or high end of the range on any of those

Seagal: 6’4.75 out of bed or maybe 6’4 5/8, 6’4 or 6’4 1/8” lunchtime, then 6’4 or 6’3 7/8 afternoon

I agree that the formers would be the tallest of that group and someone like Hasselhoff would fall more in line with Neeson or Seagal and a guy like Selleck was more like Conan around 6’3.5” afternoon height as he claimed before

Yeah, Goldblum and Dolph could pass for almost 6'5 at times in the 80s.

True Canson but seagal is listed at a hair over 6’4
Canson said on 30/Jun/20
@James B: they may be. I think a peak Goldblum was as listed. Similar with me. Same with Dolph. The other two were probably solid 6’4”. If anyone had a chance at the hair under it was Seagal. He could’ve been a guy who dipped to maybe 6’3 7/8 afternoon height imho but still a solid 6’4 lunchtime whereas Liam could’ve been 6’4 1/8 and the other two 6’4 3/8

Dolph was peak 6'3.5-6'4 out of bed now he's 6'2.5 out of bed and 6'2 through out the day. I can say he probably never was over 6'4 barefoot anytime of day thats a safe bet.

Haha that's hilarious!! A 1985 Dolph out of bed I think would have hit 196. He was clearly a good 5 inches taller than 5'11.5 Brandon Lee. 6'4.5 is still arguable for him in his 20s and 30s. His brother looks at least 6'5. The 6'5.5 he once said I think was most likely a shoe measurement. The amount of lifting he's done over the years and shooting action movies takes its toll on the body. Now there's plenty of questionable full 6'4 actors like Clint, Sutherland but like Seagal, Neeson and Goldblum, Dolph clearly fell in to the between 6'4 and 6'5 category.

Seagal and Liam neeson looked a little shorter than goldblum and Dolph Lundgren in my opinion.
Canson said on 29/Jun/20
@Arch: he could’ve been anywhere from 195-196 out of bed imho. I would guess similar to what I measure 6’5 out of bed and 6’4.25 afternoon which lines up with what Rob had him

Dolph was peak 6'3.5-6'4 out of bed now he's 6'2.5 out of bed and 6'2 through out the day. I can say he probably never was over 6'4 barefoot anytime of day thats a safe bet.

Haha that's hilarious!! A 1985 Dolph out of bed I think would have hit 196. He was clearly a good 5 inches taller than 5'11.5 Brandon Lee. 6'4.5 is still arguable for him in his 20s and 30s. His brother looks at least 6'5. The 6'5.5 he once said I think was most likely a shoe measurement.

Multiple hip replacements cut down on his height?
UndertakerFrank said on 1/May/20
What makes no sense he says @ first they didnt want him because he was too tall Then he said they made him stand on a Box to make the Height difference greater ???? Hes way too young to lose close to 3 inches Probably 6ft3ish 6ft 4 tops
Shinbats said on 30/Apr/20
He has really inconsistent posture. I’d say he was exactly 6’4” at his peak, and 6’2.5” now. I believe he has had multiple hip replacements as well. Didn’t look any more than an inch shorter than Florian Munteanu in Creed 2.

No taller than 193cm peak. Any reason why he’s lost so much height though?

Peak was around 6'4.5 for sure, nowadays around 6'2.5
OriginalAnon said on 3/Apr/20
It's hard to believe he wasn't 6'5'' during his prime. He looked massive in that line-up at the start of Universal Soldier, but he was shorter than 6'5'' Tom Lister and 6'6'' Ralf Moeller. He must have been at least 193cm. I struggle to believe he isn't even 6'3'' today but he did look clearly shorter than Conan O'Brien.
berta said on 30/Mar/20
i go with his serious claim of 193 cm and beleive he still could be 6´3 if he stands at his tallest but looks a little shorter like most guys do in that age. he have lost 1 inch. that is realistic.
Cockstride said on 29/Mar/20
@ James B 172cm. Not true. It’s genetics. Some tall guys lose almost only an inch in old age. Mick Fleetwood. John Cleese for example. Some small guys lose lots some don’t.
Vexacus said on 24/Mar/20
He was 6'5 in Universal Soldier. One of my favorite actors.
James B 172cm said on 22/Mar/20
this one of the longterm drawbacks of being super tall which is more height loss as you age.
Cockstride said on 16/Mar/20
Definitely not over 6-4 peak. Now 6-2
Canson said on 15/Mar/20
@MrTBlack: yep we’re on the same wavelength. If we go with the listed height that Rob has here, that could span both ranging 193-194 also because I’m still unsure as to the true standard of this site. In my years here, I always understood it to be afternoon heights which is how I’ve always estimated and because Rob uses his for reference; but many times I see him refer to a celeb’s height as something they can measure at or around lunchtime. Rob mentioned his lunchtime to afternoon variation is similar to mine at 1/8” post 5 hours on his feet. Dolph could’ve been my height at his peak possibly at 6’5 out of bed and 6’4.25 afternoon height on normal days. That could also mean something like 6’4 7/8- 6’4 1/8 or 6’4 3/4-6’4”. I know seeing him next to Ralf Moeller who really did look around his listed height here in the 80s, he could look perhaps 3 cm to 1.5” shorter. It’s possible Ralf fell slightly below that 197 mark as he has also been listed at 196, but I have a hard time seeing him as just a flat 6’5” in his prime. Maybe today he is however or not far above it. But looking at the taller bodybuilders, Lundgren and Moeller look to be two of the most accurately listed guys on this site. Lundgren still looks 189cm or so and Moeller looks to be at least 6’5” today still. But I never saw Lou Ferrigno as a true 6’4” peak but maybe I’m wrong. However, I could see Arnold as 6’1” peak but his height today is all over the place so I’m not sure if he’s properly listed for his current height today. It was odd seeing Antonio Brown who is only 5’10” hold up with him the way he did. I wonder if Brown’s measurement came from a Pro Day instead of the combine as it appears to be something he would measure later in the day as opposed to early in the morning. I don’t put Brown below a solid 5’10” after seeing what I’ve seen
MrTBlack said on 14/Mar/20

I think a hair over 6’4” at peak is still believable though. Overall, I’d say full 6’4” peak and anywhere from 6’2.5-6’3” now. Even the back of the Rocky 4 dvd jewel case describes him as “6’4” and 260lbs” on the back “ (although he admitted he was more like 238 lbs when R4 was filmed.)
Canson said on 13/Mar/20
@MrTBlack: that’s how I see it. A guy who would measure a near 6’5” out of bed if not right at 6’5” and then dip to around that mark. He may have claimed 6’6 from a morning measurement in shoes if he got somewhere around 197 range in them
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/20
Yes with Momoa it's hard to imagine he was ever much over 6'4. He really does only look about 189 now.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/20
6'6 barefoot is extreme but he could certainly look a genuine 6'5 at times back in the late 80s and early 90s. He claimed 6'5.5 once, that might have been a legit shoe measurement.
MrTBlack said on 10/Mar/20

Honestly, I feel when he claimed 193cm, he was being honest. I always thought 6’5 and 6’6” was extreme for him especially since he was shorter than real 6’5” guys he starred with like Ken Foree and Tiny Lister.

Dolph was definitely a big fit tall dude when he was younger between Rocky and Red Scorpian, but 20years later time hasn't treated him as well as others, over 6'4" at his peak and somewhere between 6'2-6'3" today.
berta said on 17/Jan/20
maybe he could be Close to 190 cm still? i didnt see more than 3 cm beetween him and Jason mamoa. there is a chanse that he have lost only 3 cm and Went from legit 193 down to 190 cm. almost 5 cm is to muthc. the most i can Believe he have lost would be 4 cm and in that case maybe was just over 193 and is 189,5 today.

Honestly it doesn’t matter what time I measure myself, I’m always 6’025.
Not sure I’ve ever actually measured myself fresh out of bed though.
Met a few Celebs the same day and had pics.
The guy who I was with did note that the camera was slightly at the side favouring the celeb. Looking at the background as well I think on my pic with Dolph there was a slight tilt in his favour. Didn’t look any less than 6’3 to me.
Got a pic with Karl Urban the same day, Karl had big leather boots on and I was equal with him at 6’025 if that’s anything to go by.
Dolph had the big head and frame that Hulk Hogan had, the proportions of somebody who looks like they’ve lost height.
I could see a young healthy Dolph standing tall managing to hit 6’5.

That background monopoly use is a bit curved if I remember, free standing style...

Rising174cm said on 12/Nov/19
@Cedric: Although I'm not big on the 1/8" listings, it'd be a good one for Dolph's peak, however, Dolph was taller than Seagal peak. Here they are both with 6'8" Scott L. Schwartz(Ultimate Bad Guy) 6'10" around the same time: Click Here The Dolph photo is on the set of Bridge of Dragaons in 1998 when Dolph was 40 and the Seagal pic is from the set of Fire Down Below in 1996 when Seagal was 44. Dolph looks around 8 cm shorter, maybe 3.5" max and Dolph has normal boots around the 3 cm range, which might give him 1/4" over Bad Guy's sneakers, yet Seagal looks more like 4" shorter than Schwartz and Seagal was wearing cowboy boots as you can see in the film and as confirmed by Schwartz to a poster here James via email. I think 6'4" flat is the best listing for peak Seagal anyway since he's claimed it. Dolph was basically 6'4" as well, but I think it's more likely Dolph didn't drop below 6'4" at his peak than Seagal.
Rising174cm said on 12/Nov/19
I definitely don't see Dolph less than this listing. In fact, I suspect he still might top it for a measurement. Here is Dolph just a couple of months ago with Dan Reynolds who is listed at 6'4" by Rob: Click Here I don't even see a full inch between them there, though that might be Dolph standing a bit better there, but I still think Dolph would hit much closer to 6'3" than 6'2" standing for a measurement.

Mickie said on 31/Oct/19
@ rising - excellent comparison of Dolph and Driver next to the same guy. Lots of people on this site overestimate some 6'2"-ish guys like Driver and think they're 6'3", I think because if you're that height and have decent posture - it will look taller than many imagine. But Dolph is probably closer to 6'3" than Driver
Sotiris Gravas said on 20/Oct/19
I like that quote Editor Rob included. He said that he was 6'6" back in 1986, and that Stallone was 5'10". More like he was 6'4" and Sly was 5'8". Tall tales, indeed.

Back in the 80's he could look it though James. I watched a few of his older movies recently and noticed he wore boots alot. Could also explain combined with his lean physique him looking taller.

Still barefoot in Showdown in little tokyo he had a very easy 5 inches on 5'11" Brandon Lee. I think Rob even has him listed higher than that. 6'4.25" is good for his peak.
Caldoni said on 3/Oct/19
In the picture above looks no more than 6-2. !! Granted he’s leaning in so I’m say he’s 6-2.75 today max.

Peak a weak 6-4 just maybe. Probably more 6-3.75. Now looks a strong 6-2.

@Rising: he probably has the same posture issues that some of the taller wrestlers such as Taker and Hogan have. Maybe he could squeeze 189-190 range or at a stretch 190 today. Peak height was around mine or only marginally shorter
Rising174cm said on 12/Sep/19
While it's pretty easy to peg Dolph around 6'4" peak, maybe 6'4.25", I think 6'2.5" is the absolute lowest Dolph could be today and I actually think he'd still measure more like 190 cm range based on how he looks with men Rob estimates to be a similar height or 6'2"-6'3" range.

With 6'2.5" listed Michael Rapaport within the last year: Click Here Dolph is definitely taller than Michael. The difference was considerably greater in 1995 when Dolph was still a legit 6'4": Click Here Maybe we can argue Michael lost a fraction by his late 40's or was always 6'2"-6'2.25", but even so, Dolph still looks closer to 6'3" with him or 190 cm minimum.

Dolph and 6'3" listed Lou Ferrigno, also within the last year: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Not only is 5 photos enough to conclude Dolph is taller than Lou, but you since the last 2 photos are full, you can see Lou's shoes are thicker and he's going up on his toes on his back foot with Dolph also bending his knee in the last photo. Either way, I don't see how Lou can be any taller than 6'2.5" based on this and it's inconceivable to me that he's taller than Dolph. 6'2.25" would be the most Lou looks if Dolph is 6'2.5", but I'm skeptical Lou is under 6'2.5' so I'd say Dolph at 6'2.75" fits well enough alongside him. I also believe Dolph was a stronger 6'4" peak than Lou was since I see no chance Dolph was under 193 cm or 6'4" peak, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out Lou had peaked at closer to 6'3.5" or 192 cm range.

Dolph is still clearly taller than 6'2.25" listed Terry Crews based on this pic taken the same year Rob met Dolph: Click Here Note that Dolph is bending his knee and has loose posture compared to Crews who is standing straight so I can't see only 1/4" between them. 6'2.5" Dolph means Crews shrunk to 6'2" flat or was never over 6'2" flat, both of which are possible, but I think you can easily still argue there's 2 cm between them. And it makes sense considering Dolph is still taller since he still looked around 3 cm taller than Crews back in these 2012 videos: Click Here Click Here and these 2010 pics with the first 3 full pics: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here 2010-2012 Dolph was still at least a solid 6'3" or probably 191 cm range, but has clearly lost at least another cm since.

Here's Dolph with Rob's friend 6'2" Big D also taken the same year Rob met Dolph: Click Here I see a full inch between them as opposed to just half an inch. This is one reason I don't rule out the possibility Dolph might still hit a full 6'3" standing tall for a measure, though I agree that a listing under that is a safer bet. Rob didn't seem to have much doubt about Big D being around 6'2".

Also, based on this pic taken less than 2 years ago, Dolph still measures up noticeably better to 6'10" listed Joonas Suotamo than 6'2.25" listed Adam Driver does: Click Here Click Here Of course, Driver could be more 6'2" flat and we don't know for sure that Suotamo is a full 6'10", but I see Dolph pulling off at least 6'3" with him.

I think it's mostly a matter of Dolph having naturally poor standing posture these days due to wear and tear, 2 hip replacements etc. but he seems to stand better next to men closer to his height as you can see with his good posture next to Big D compared to how he leans when posing with Rob. Either way, 6'2.5" may be a pretty good listing, but it's the absolute lowest I'd guess and I still think a 6'2.5" Dolph suggests or even requires in some cases that some of these other celebrities be downgraded, especially Ferrigno and Rappaport. If you see Jeff Goldblum and Liam Neeson these days, they're also examples of men who were at least 6'4" peak yet poor posture can make them look just 187-188 cm range these days.
Rising174cm said on 11/Sep/19
Fortunately, there's no need to speculate on how much Dolph lost by having his head down and a wide stance on uneven ground for the Universal Soldier pic because we have a lot of video footage of Dolph in the gym with Ralf Moeller in 2003: Click Here Ralf first appears around 1:14 and we see them until 2:30, we see a good comparison of Dolph and Ralf from 3:40 to 4:00 and again from 4:45 to 5:25. Here's a few stills: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Ralf is/was 196-197 cm and as you can see, he didn't have more than 3 cm on Dolph confirming Dolph was still at least 193 cm or a solid 6'4" as late as 2003.
Myself said on 8/Sep/19
Yes, I don't know. He could be measuring only out of bed but not doing it later and thus not knowing how much he loses (because he said "maybe" when claiming 187.5), or he could be really measuring like an hour after waking and is just using the term because he sees it on this site, and 187.5 in reality is near his low.
Either way this either confirms Dolphs listing or it just puts him a cm lower. I highly doubt he is below 188 anyway.

He was never as tall as 6’5.5” Ralf Moeller. That was an easy 3cm difference. And a bodybuilder like him isn’t likely to downplay his height. You do see above that he claimed 6’6” too. A guy his size hasn’t lost 3” in height as he’s only 189cm today with Rob. Maximum 6’4.25 min 6’4” peak

He said "out of bed", rather than "morning", so I take him by his word, without the need of further speculation only to supposedly confirm this listing...

He also goes on to say that he is maybe 187 range in the afternoon. Not alot of people are aware of out of bed height. You literally have to to measure first hour of waking. Maybe Laurent will clear this up but i doubt it, he probably just came here after getting his pic at comic con.

Even then I’d say around 5 min after waking to get an accurate reading.

Hey. But if you are 6'2 out of bed, then you will lose 1 cm in like 1-2 hours (as everybody does) and be around 6'1.25 at your real low by the afternoon/evening.


I don't think many people spring out of bed and grab a measuring tape dude :) Most likely Laurent is 189-187cm through the day.

So that leaves Dolph at 189cm as listed.

Max peak height would be what Rob listed him. Maybe just 6’4 flat. He was at least 3cm if not 1.5” shorter than Ralf Moeller in his prime

Close to 6'5" peak. Now Dolph's about 6'2.5".
Laurent said on 27/Jul/19
@myself,Hi, my size out of bed is 6.2, but the picture is taken at 12pm, 1pm, maybe I have 187.5, in the morning passed, Dolph him, like me, was wearing basquet shoes the same height, and the posture was straight, for me, it is higher than 2 cm that my height, it must graze the 190cm, 6.3. best regards

Rob, this guy claims to be 6ft9! Is this even slightly believable? Here with Dolph in a full body.

Looks around 6ft7 at most
Editor Rob
It's hard to imagine him being near 6ft 9, so he might be adding 2 inches to his claim.

Regarding the photo of 1992 Universal soldier, one also has to take into account dolph has his hair short and forward and he is hunching with his head more downward whilst Ralph is standing straight with hair up and chin up.

He was never 6’5. He was 6’4 maybe 6’ today he’s close to 2” shorter. Around the same as Michael Phelps or a hair taller
morteza hoseini said on 30/Jun/19
In this photo, he does not look more than 186 cm ... My personal impression was that he was 190 cm because when he was about 40 years old, every 8 to 10 years a century would be shortened by one centimeter, and even at an age It's more than 55 years old ... Given that my personal feeling was that his height was 193 cm (at a young age) and now he has lengthened 2 to 3 cm due to his age, so his current stature It should be about 190 centimeters ... but I read somewhere (I do not remember where !!) that was about 4 centimeters lowered due to foot surgery. Let's stature ...

He has a wider stance than Ralph and Lister but even so if you draw the lines from the top of his head it only looks around an inch.The three big guys are at the back all the others have camera advantage.

Well Dolph's standing with a wider stance than Ralph Moeller and Tiny Lister, but even straightened up, it looks like he'd come up short of these gentlemen, at most he could pull of a flat 6'4".

Click Here = Young Dolph(Movie 1992 = Universal Soldier) and Tommy Tiny Lister JR listed 6"5' (the left black man) .The left guy next to him a little bit closer to the camera ,Jean Claude Vandamme is listed 5"9'peak.I doubt a 6"4' guy looks as short next to a 5"9' guy even with a posture a little bit broken like here ,and Jean Claude does not look perfectly straight too here

@Rising=Lol Of course Rising, if you take an example with Dolph perfectly straight and Barack slouching and more distant to the camera than Stephen Colbert......Plus the camera is low in Barack's pic and high in Dolph's pic....Then your lines will always prove Dolph is easily taller than Barack ...Dolph and David Soul are very close one to the other in my example and even if David is standing a little bit closer to the camera you can see the difference,and David is not always standing perfectly straight and Dolph does not really slouch here...
Rising174cm said on 18/May/19
Dolph looks 6'4" flat with Soul in Pentathalon. It's actually one of the very few 80's and 90's films where he looks just 6'4" flat, but that's not a good time to pause to gauge because Soul is closer to the camera, which is behind him on his side and fully straight to look up at Dolph while Dolph is slouching. Certainly held 6'4" at his low and may have been 1/8" to 1/4" over midday, much like Goldblum and Neeson and probably a little taller than Seagal. Here you can see 41 year old Dolph with 6'8" Scott L. Schwartz looking only 3"-3.5" max shorter with maybe 1/4" footwear advantage: Click Here and here's 6'4" Seagal(in cowboy boots) looking shorter next to Schwartz: Click Here And we can further confirm Schwartz height next to solid 6'1" Ed O'Neill: Click Here 6'5" Vince Vaughn: Click Here and 6'2.5" listed Bernie: Click Here Note, Schwartz had about 1 cm up to 1/2" footwear advantage over Vaughn, which is why Vaughn looks no taller than Dolph next to Schwartz. That's a very good full pic of Dolph standing next to Schwartz who has perfect posture. Furthermore, we can see Dolph easily 6'4"+ with 5'9" Charlie Sheen: Click Here and next to Alan Light, who was probably 5'9.5"-5'10" though he claims 5'10.5": Click Here Aside from the dozens of other comparisons I've posted showing 80's and 90's Dolph at a solid 6'4"+, we know he wasn't a mere 6'3" because he was initially turned down for Rocky 4 for being over that height and Dolph was still often looking a good 191+ range even when the first 2 Expendables were released from 2010 to 2012 and his height loss was noticeable by then. Remember the 90's video with a 6'1"+ Arnold where Dolph was strangely looking more like 4" taller than Arnold as opposed to just 3" and generally had worse posture.

And nobody is saying Dolph is still 6'4" so of course he's now shorter than Roland. But please stop with the Colbert nonsense. Dolph was easily 1.5"-2" taller next to Colbert than Obama was. A blind man can see that. We've been over this like a dozen times, but let's make it a baker's dozen: Click Here Click Here Click Here

I'd give Dolph 190 cm today, but he could be anywhere between 6'2.5" and 6'3". Florian can look anywhere from 2 to 3 cm taller than Dolph so it's probably about an inch between them. Here's video of Dolph looking around 3 cm range shorter even though he has Converse while Florian has Nikes giving him a good half inch advantage in all likelihood: Click Here and here's a full pic where Dolph measures up quite well: Click Here much like he does in these photo from the same event: Click Here Click Here Of course, Florian could be just 6'3.5" as well, in which case you could argue the current listing for Dolph is most likely.
Pierre said on 17/May/19
Imo he looks clearly under 6"4' next to David Soul (make a pause at 9:46 = Click Here ). Click Here here next to Roland Kickinger listed 6"4',even with a better posture he's distant to the 6"4' mark and Roland is not standing perfectly straight too.Here is a comparison Dolph /Stephen Colbert(probably around 5"10.25') with Barack 6"0.75'/ Stephen Colbert = Click Here Click Here you can see Stephen eyes are around the same height as Dolph's and Barack's mouth,then the difference between Dolph and Barack is slim.
Canson said on 15/May/19
He would’ve been 6’4” in his prime easily. I don’t rule out the same height as a peak Liam Neeson or possibly as tall as Jeff Goldblum peak but today he’s no more than 189cm maybe 189-190 if he stands tall. He can honestly struggle to look 6’2 in some more recent pics but likely due to poor posture
Johan 185 cm said on 15/May/19
Click Here

Current listing is perfect. He is 3cm shorter than Florian who claims 6'4" but Rob has him at 6'3,3/4. Florian had slightly thicker shoes hence the 4cm gap.

Click Here

Loafers v Dress shoe maybe 1/4 up to a 1/2 advantage.
Johan 185 cm said on 13/May/19
Up until a few years ago I could still see him near 6'3" but he is definetly as listed today. He barely edges out 6'2" guys.

Just to think in his prime he easily cleared 6'4".
John wilson s. said on 12/May/19
guys complaining here about 6'2 being too low are probably the ones that have no idea how tall 1.80 cm is.
The genuine one!

anyway, I think the listing is fine.
Pierre said on 9/May/19
I really think he does not lose lots of height next to Rob he's standing just a little bit on his left side ,just before losing a good quantity of height,and imo Rob's neck/posture is broken,Rob is not standing at his 5"8' imo here
Bora said on 7/May/19
I think he is strong 6'2" but Why did he fake his height ? He is already tall

Dolph is a weird, rare case.

The average vote stands at 6'2.58" after 202 votes!
Mark D said on 5/May/19
I still would say 6'3" peak, 6'2" now. Possibly 6'2" peak and still there now. I think people exaggerate height loss. I hit 6'4.5" at age 19 and at 53 I am the same, maybe 1/4 less at the end of the day, tops. I'm not much younger than Dolph, and given his staying in shape, he is even less likely to lose height.
Canson said on 29/Apr/19
He has poor posture today which makes him look shorter. However I agree with Rising. 189 range today and 193 perhaps my height at 193-194 at his peak. He only looked about 3cm maybe max 1.5 shorter than Ralf Moeller who we can almost unanimously say was around 6’5.5 in his prime like he’s listed here

Rising174cm said on 14/Apr/19
@Pierre: It's highly likely they minimized the difference there to make it easier to frame. This is why the still I've posted where Dolph looks 6" taller is much more compelling because not only are they directly side by side, but there'd be no reason to make the difference bigger than it is. There may be a slight tilt in Dolph's favor in that scene, but Ashton has an advantage being closer to the camera AND Dolph is slouching. Here's another still from that scene: Click Here and yet one more: Click Here You notice there's no tilt in the last one and Ashton has a noticeable advantage being closer yet he's still below Dolph's eyes meaning that's still a bare minimum 5.5" difference, possibly 6". And we can see Dolph could look right over Ashton's head in another indoor scene: Click Here and granted this final photo was outdoors, but if you notice Dolph is a little hunched around his upper-back and shoulders while Ashton is standing straight: Click Here Notice that even if we count his hat, Ashton is still at least 6" shorter.

And there's no doubt Dolph lost more height than Rob in their photo by leaning noticeably. Rob has confirmed this and Dolph in general stands much further from his measured height than Rob. That pic with Ralf Moeller exaggerates the difference because Dolph has a wide stance, his head is down AND they're outside meaning the ground level is uncertain. Again, as Canson said, the difference was only around 3 cm: Click Here Click Here Click Here and here's the original video: Click Here Aside from the timestamp, you can compare them at 1:12, 3:05 and for about 40 seconds from 4:45 on. The difference consistently looks 2-3 cm range and this is video taken indoors, not a single outdoors photo with Dolph losing height from both a wide stance and his head being down.

It's also not true that Dolph and Van Damme were a mere 6" apart. They obviously made Van Damme taller for Universal Soldier and promo pics, plus he's more than a little closer in most of those pics and in the one offscreen pic, Van Damme is both closer to the camera and Dolph is bending his knee while leaning at the same time. If you want to see the real difference between them, go to the behind the scenes clip where we can see their entire bodies so we know Van Damme isn't standing on anything and no camera tricks are employed behind the scenes: Click Here Even though Dolph is walking with his head down, he completely dwarfs Van Damme by an easy 7". We can compare peak Dolph to another 5'9" man Charlie Sheen and he again towers him by easily 7"+: Click Here And this isn't even considering that Dolph was probably only wearing sandals or possibly even barefoot since he was dressed as a lifeguard. 0% chance he was just 191 peak and 0% chance he's 187 today. He never looked below 193 before his 50's and he only looks 187 now when he slouches. If he were 187 then you'd see him looking more 183-184 at times when slouching and that would also mean Ferrigno, Rapaport and Terry Crews are all only about 6'1".

@Miiiiiiighty: Actually, Dolph generally looked more 191-192 range during the first 2 Expendables as you can see in that Expendables photo I posted with 6'2.25" listed Terry Crews plus full premiere photos: Click Here and video as late as 2012: Click Here That certainly looks like a good 3 cm difference, especially considering Dolph's big head. Furthermore, we can see Dolph at that same time(late 2012) still only slightly shorter than 6'4" David Hasselhoff: Click Here Click Here The difference seems maybe half an inch, but certainly not as much as an inch. So during the period the first 2 Expendables were filmed, Dolph had to be a minimum 6'3" and a max 6'3.5". He clearly lost a little more height between the 2nd and 3rd Expendables since by 2014, he was looking more 6'3" to even a weak 6'3" or 190 cm so he may have shrunk down to his current height by then, though it's possible he's lost another fraction because you can argue he's as short as 6'2.5" since 2015, but not before that, imo. I'd still guess more 190 range standing straight for a measurement. You're right that Dolph's height loss has been pretty striking the last 10 years, especially considering how huge he was in the 80's and 90's and his posture has been abysmal as Canson so aptly put it during that same decade.
Canson said on 13/Apr/19
@Viper: 6’4” flat peak minimum. But I doubt he was any higher than I am currently at 6’4.25. Somewhere between the two at a low or right at either. He looked about 3cm shorter than Ralf Moeller maybe 1.5” max. I agree with just about everything Rising said earlier here
Pierre said on 13/Apr/19
The reality imo = in this posture Dolph does not lose height more than Rob,who break his neck so break his posture in this pic.Imo Dolph is around 6"1.5'/6"1.75' and was around 6"3.25'. Click Here = here you can see young Dolph isn't standing perfectly straight but Ralf Moeller too(he bent his knee and break a little bit his posture).Dolph is standing one good foot closer to the camera and the camera is low so logically give an advantage to the top of head of the closest guy but even here Ralf(listed 6"5.5') looks clearly taller than him not by only 1.5 inches imo by considering all the parameters Click Here .In this video "behind the scenes" Universal Soldier 1992 Click Here ,at around 1:41 you can see the difference between Dolph and Jean Claude Vandamme(5"9') is around 6 inches.Here when Dolph slouch a little bit and Jean Claude straight = Click Here .Here in around the same posture =
Click Here .Here around the same posture just Dolph's head tilt a little bit more than Jean Claude's head = Click Here .Here Jean Claude break a little bit his posture = Click Here .

People saying he was 6'2 in his prime must put the crack pipe down..
This is getting hilarious..
6'2 prime Dolph ? Really .. What would that make Stallone ? 5'6 ???
He is most likely still a good 6'2.5" with his best posture..

Hard to believe how much height he has lost though... Judging by the pic with Rob he would barely be 3 inches taller than me if he stood as straight as possible..
Met him back in the days and he towered over me.. Like 6 inches taller ( I'd guess him 195 minimum in 1999-2001 ) barefeet (in karate attire )..

I was shocked when I saw him in King Rising 2.. A lot shorter than he used to be, hunched AF and moving like he was just out of the hospital after a hip replacement surgery.
Didn't age well.. Sad..

ps : Dolph seems to have lost height quite fast in the latest years, he was still looking a good 190+ around the 1st Expendables but now .. ( maybe linked to his hip issues / surgeries ? )
Rising174cm said on 6/Apr/19
lol, Dolph is looking 187 cm while obviously leaning with Rob, NOT 6 feet. And 6'2"-6'2.5" prime is nothing short of hilarious. He's still at least 6'2.5" and if he's just 6'0" then that means current Lou Ferrigno, Terry Crews and Michael Rapaport are all only 5'11" range!

Here's Dolph back in 1995 towering 5'10.5" John Ashton indoors by what looks like more than 6": Click Here That's from The Shooter/Hidden Assassin

Dolph also easily had 2" on Fred Williamson in BLackjack(1998): Click Here Click Here You can see in their scene that Dolph walks behind Williamson(further from the camera), slouches a lot and still looks taller.

Remember, even a noticeably shrunken Dolph looked more than an inch taller than 6'2.25" Terry Crews from 2010-2012 in full pics AND video from events. Here's Dolph with a noticeable slouch still easily taller than Crews behind the scenes for the first Expendables: Click Here 2010-2012 Dolph was still most likely 191-191.5 range or easily 6'3"-6'3.5" while prime Dolph was at least a solid 6'4" or a solid 193 cm(as in never dropped below that during the day) until at least 2003. More proof of that is how Dolph stacked up to 196-197 range(or 6'5.5") Ralf Moeller in 2003: Click Here Click Here Click Here Clearly, there's only 2-3 cm between them so once again, Dolph was a solid 193 cm and never below that, possibly even 193.5-194 range before his height loss became noticeable in his late 40's/early 50's and now Dolph has shrunk to probably 190 cm or a minimum 189-189.5 range.

6'2 to 6'2 n half prime, saw interview with him and Conan and Conan was a bit taller to where
Dolph even mentioned Conan was a very tall guy. Same height as Eastwood in his prime around that 6'2 mark but muscular, great character in Rocky 4. Even the pic above with Rob shows 6ft with factors of hair and slouching and age no more than around strong 6'2 at prime. of course Stallone wants everyone to think he was 5'10 and needed this giant 6'6 guy. lol

@Pierre: You can't trust Roberts in shots like that where you can't see his feet because he'll go way up on his toes as you can see here: Click Here Rob asked Eric to go back to back so he couldn't do that and Eric had gone up on his toes with Mr. R as well. You can see Eric pulling himself up here and he's still clearly shorter than a slouching Daniels: Click Here Footwear is unknown in the Snipes pic and city pavement is usually uneven so we don't know if Snipes has the ground advantage. For instance, this photo is from that same scene, but Daniels suddenly looks clearly taller than Snipes: Click Here Here's a full pic of Gary back in the 90's with 5'8.5" Jackie Chan: Click Here That's around the time of Gary's pic with Tagawa and Gary definitely looks 5'10" compared to Jackie. You mention the average guess for Snipes, well 13 votes for Daniels have him at an average of 5'10.35". It's possible Gary isn't a full 5'10", but he's taller than a flat 5'9". Here you can see him edge Statham in another full pic even though Statham may be favored if anything: Click Here Even if Gary is only 5'9.5" instead, that still puts Tagawa looking 5'11"+ in their photo and Expendables-era Lundgren looking 6'3"+ with him.

Rising174cm said on 8/Feb/19
@Canson: Good post as usual. Crews is tough. I think Rob's 6'2.25" listing is good, though Terry has sometimes looked a weak 6'2" so I can see 6'2" flat argued as well. I'm actually sort of surprised at how clear it is that Dolph is still taller since if you look it even appears his knees are bent: Click Here But not too surprised since Dolph had clearly lost height by the time of the Expendables yet appeared more than an inch taller than Terry when the first 2 films were released. 2010: Click Here and 2012 video: Click Here I'd think Dolph at that time still had at least 3 cm to 1.5" on Terry. He's obviously lost more height since then and Terry himself may have lost 1/4" by now, but Terry still edges Ryan Reynolds. I had always believed the 6'2.5" figure for Rapaport since many thought he was 6'3"+ before seeing his 6'2"-6'2.5" claim, but he could have dropped 1/4" himself now in his late 40's and be 6'2.25" or even 6'2" flat, though Dolph obviously had a lot more height on Michael in 1995 than 2018. None of these 3 guys(Lundgren, Crews and Rapaport) have ever had good posture, which can make height loss more probable.

But as I said, my thoughts on Dolph's peak are similar to yours. I think about 6'4" flat at a low is still most probable and perhaps 1/8" to 1/4" above that for a midday measurement, much like Goldblum and perhaps Neeson in their primes. It does make sense that Dolph's 195 cm claim came from an early measurement in the 80's, which matches up well with a 193 cm measurement later in the day. The one thing I'm unclear about is whether Dolph meant to claim 193 as his peak height or if he meant that at the time of the interview, which I believe was in 2005. But the last 10 years or so, Dolph seems to refer to his height at the time of Rocky 4 as being either 6'4" or 6'5". This suggests to me that he may believe he was between those at his peak, especially if he measured both earlier and later in the day, but it also tells us 6'4" is about right. Doesn't rule out a fraction above since you know firsthand that many who are a small fraction above 6'4" won't bother with the fraction, but the 6'5.5" and 6'6" claims seem to be something he only tried in the 80's, perhaps for his image after Rocky 4. He regularly got listed at those figures until the early 90's, but I haven't really seen those listings since so I think that was mostly for his career. I'd guess he probably measured 6'5.5" in footwear at one point in the 80's and then rounded that up to 6'6". I think he admitted height loss as early as 2008 and then definitely on Swedish TV around 2011. Many men won't admit to shrinking as we've seen with Trump and even Clint Eastwood and I haven't seen Lou Ferrigno acknowledge shrinking either. I think Lou was probably 6'4" peak, but I have some doubts and suspect he could have been just 6'3.5" peak. I still give Lou about 6'2.5" current and I think the lowest I'd guess would be 6'2.25".

@Pierre: there are certainly photos out there that support Cary being a full 5'11" peak such as this 1996 photo with Gary Daniels, whom Rob lists at 5'10": Click Here and Cary measures up well to Donald Sutherland in this movie still from 2000: Click Here Sutherland probably wasn't 6'3.5" anymore at 64 years old, but as long as he was still 6'2" -- and he definitely was -- then Cary looks at least 5'11" in that still. I tend to trust Rob's judgement on people he's met and the pictures you posted don't bring Cary's peak height into question at all. It's very probable that Cary lost at least half an inch by his 60's as Rob estimates. In fact, the average loss for a 60 year old man in one survey was 2 cm and Cary was 65-66 in the photos you just posted. Luke Kleintank doesn't have a page here, but Joel de la Fuente doesn't look much taller. Around 1 cm, maybe half an inch max in the first photo, 2 cm max in the second photo and then maybe an inch in the last photo. Cary looks to have a footwear advantage, though I'm not sure exactly how much. Even considering footwear(probably a half inch or so advantage or in the 1 to 1.5 cm range), 65 year old Cary doesn't look less than 177-178 cm with 181 cm de la Fuente and he could still be 179 since Cary seems to be developing a bit of old man posture compared to Joel and he can even look taller in this pic: Click Here which also suggests the difference wasn't much at that event.

Btw, speaking of Gary Daniels, here he is with Dolph(clearly past his peak) on the set of the first Expendables: Click Here Click Here Click Here Dolph still looked 6'3.5" with Daniels and Dolph's posture seems pretty loose and casual.

@Rising: Dolph May still edge those guys. I have Crews at Max a solid 6’2” but likely is that. Rappaport is someone I couldn’t gauge but will try. I leave the solid 6’4 peak at a low for Dolph because of his 193 claim but even then it could be like 193.3 meaning closer to 6’4 1/8 at a low. He prob would’ve been around 195 out of bed. Of the full listing then he would’ve been probably over. I know Rob uses 5 hours ish out of bed. At that stage for me I would prob be closer to 6’4 3/8 but I use my low since it’s within reach some days even right at 193.8 after 5 hours if I’m on my feet for almost the entire time

@Rising=Cary Tagawa was in rare shoes next to Rob and Rob maybe is a little bit generous with his height barefoot plus he was only 61 years old in the pic next to Rob and in a good shape then had maybe not lose height by the years. Here next to Luke Kleitank listed 6"0' =
Click Here .Click Here In other pics the difference is slimer= Click Here but here are his shoes= Click Here the same here = Click Here or here too = Click Here = Cow boy boots.
Here in his cow boy boots next to Joël de al Fuente listed 5"11.25" he looks shorter than him = Click Here Click Here Click Here =Joël's shoes in the last pic= Click Here =slim heel apparently

Here's some stills of Dolph and a barefoot 5'11" Cary Tagawa from Showdown in Little Tokyo(1991): Click Here If you scroll down to the final pic, you'll see Dolph's footwear, which looks pretty normal and flat so definitely around an inch, but you can see Cary is standing perfectly straight while Dolph is bending his knees in every pic and standing loose in general such as the 3rd pic where he's leaning forward. Despite this, Dolph consistently looks about 6" taller and though we have to subtract an inch for footwear, he'd gain some, possibly even all of that back in posture. And some stills of them from Bridge of Dragons(1999): Click Here Both wore boots that looked in the normal 1"-1.25" range. Unfortunately, Cary's hat makes it impossible to gauge the exact difference, but I'd definitely guess over 5" between them considering eye level, Dolph's big head and Cary's military posture compared to Dolph's more casual posture. Seemed a good 6'4" at the time of both these films, imo.

@Canson: 6'2.5" is definitely in my range. I go back and forth on where I think he'd measure in the 6'2.5"-6'3" range so 6'2.75" or 190 cm is probably my best current guess. As for Ferrigno, I'm not ready to go as low as 6'2" flat myself, but if Ali Baba also thought 6'2.5" possible then I can agree with that. Interesting because I'm also wondering where Michael Rapaport and Terry Crews currently are in that same 6'2"-6'2.5" range.

And every page gets som ridiculous comments like these ones from Luke F with a random poster making completely unbelievable claim for the celebrity in question. It was only a matter of time before one of these popped up on Dolph's page.

Current height is 6 foot 3
Canson said on 5/Feb/19
He was easily at least 6’2 with Rob and that’s not his peak
Luke F said on 5/Feb/19
He is 6 foot flat on a good day. I have stood in front of him and had a good 2 inches on the guy. I am 6'2 he was noticeably shorter. He was never 6'5 or anything like it
James Brett said on 3/Feb/19
If he indeed took steroids that could have contributed too his height loss.
Canson said on 3/Feb/19
@Rising: agreed. I think 6’2.5 is about where I could see if he stands straighter. I would give Ferrigno 6’2” today based on how he looked with Ali Baba. He’s noticeably shorter today than at his peak and he doesn’t have great posture either. I would say a peak Lou was 6’3” range though maybe even 6’3-6’4 at a push

@Canson: I think he was as tall as Goldblum peak and could actually seem taller in some films, but that's probably because Dolph's size was sometimes emphasized in his roles unlike Goldblum. I don't think Dolph sometimes looking a weak 6'2" nowadays is surprising at all considering his abysmal posture as you so aptly put it. Neeson and Goldblum can also look in that weak 6'2" range now due to posture. But the 6'2.5" Rob has Dolph listed is the lowest I'd guess him measuring since he can still look 6'3" when he stands better. Also, he's still clearly taller than 6'2.5" listed Michael Rapaport, 6'2.25" listed Terry Crews, had at least an inch on Rob's 6'2" friend Big Dale in their photo and looked taller than 6'3" listed Lou Ferrigno. Of course, we agree Ferrigno isn't 6'3" anymore, but my point is Dolph still looks taller than a lot of guys in that 6'2"-6'2.5" range. Here's a full photo where Dolph looks 6 cm taller than 184 cm listed Michael Jai White: Click Here Click Here but also notice Michael is standing fully straight while Dolph's posture is still loose and looks like he could straighten up more and it also looks like Michael could have a tilt or ground advantage. This premiere video is another example of current Dolph still looking quite tall: Click Here If you notice, he still pretty much towers over solid 5'11"/181 cm listed Ron Perlman despite a high angle which would typically minimize height differences and bad posture since Dolph is doing that stance where he bends his knee, drops height in his hips and leans. I'm fine with the listing, but standing straight for a measurement, I can see Dolph possibly measuring anywhere from 6'2.5"-6'3" today. No more, no less. This is based on being taller than those other 4 guys around 6'2" or 6'2.25"-6'2.5" in some cases and also how Dolph looked with Florian, Momoa and Colbert.

@Jdubbz: I could see 6’4 for him at his peak but today he honestly looks barely 6’2 at times. Peak he could be similar to Hasselhoff or Neeson or even Goldblum
Rising - 174 cm said on 29/Jan/19
I don't see any reason reason to doubt 193 cm peak myself: Look how massive he looked walking with 5'9" Van Damme even though Dolph's head is down the entire time: Click Here I'm often skeptical of height loss, but not in Dolph's case. I watched Black Water recently with someone who didn't know about Dolph's injury history and hip replacements and they actually noted Dolph didn't seem to stand well.
Jdubbz said on 26/Jan/19
I doubt he was ever 193-194 peak.

Another convention photo of Dolph and Carl Weathers: Click Here Dolph is leaning in slightly, but still looks near 2" taller since Carl struggles to reach Dolph's hairline.
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Jan/19
@Pierre: Yes, but Dolph slouches at times as well in the video. In general, I think they stand pretty similarly there. Both casual rather than military and that's the benefit of a video, we can see more than one moment. As for Rapaport, well the average guess is also 6'2.3" so imo, he's probably in that 6'2.25"-6'2.5" range or 6'2" at the absolute worst. I think Wentworth is too close to compare there, especially with the camera below them.
