I suppose this makes him a pretty useful "yardstick" so to speak, to compare Arnold to.

If James is only 6 ft 2 than Arnold was max 6'1 in this pic and in the 90's.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/17
He's probably 187-188cm range today and 188-189cm peakā€¦

In this pic above arnold is standing on lower level and Cameron on higher leveland also arnie is dropping a bit but closer to the camera so the difference looks 3 cms bit its actually 2cms

i also believe he is maybe 187 tall nowdays.
berta said on 5/May/17
by looking at him i would say he looks like he could be atleast 187 and as talles a fraction over 188 the lsting is fine. But he looks maybe 3 cm taller than arnold well atleast 2 so i guess thats another evidence that arnold was probably weak 186 guy rather than 187. and of course was measured just under 188 in the morning.

@richardspain: you're right Arnold was never over maybe 184cm strong 6'0" which would give him 6'1" AM and maybe 6'1.5 in shoes
Richardspain said on 23/Apr/17
Good pic. This is proof Arnold never was 188cm because Cameron is taller than Arnold.

Arnold 186 cm peak not more

What an interesting revelation! I had no idea James Cameron was this tall!
I do dig his films - they're fantastic; many have good parable-like qualities, if you catch my drift folks, and unbeatable special effects!
Ashton said on 12/Dec/16
Yes, he is 188 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/16
In that photo with Arnold (still 6ft1 minimum then), 189cm is arguable
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jul/16
DIdn't look it, but you could probably argue 189 at some time of the day in his 20s.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/16
I'm sure he's also been described at 6ft3 in the past
Bunerpk said on 9/Apr/16
Today He Is Minimaly 1 Inch Taller Than Arnie & Is Correct 6.2
Bunerpk said on 9/Apr/16
In His Early 90s , I Think He Was More Than 6.2 Because He Looks Probably 2 Inches Taller Than Big Arnie. Now He Will Be 6.2 Without Any Doubt.......,....,,.... I M His Big Fan From PK.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Mar/16
Arnold could look near Cameron's height in other pictures. He's tilting his head in the one above...
Crypto139 said on 7/Mar/16
Typical average internet user. 6 foot 2, introverted, obsessed with freedom, anarchism, and believes all people are sheep.
S.J.H said on 5/Mar/16
He don't look dropping much of height since avatar premiere. Might be 6'1.75 today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/15
Looks 6ft1-6ft2 today
BT said on 30/Sep/15
Looking nothing over 6'1.5 now if you look at recent pics with Tarantino and others. Don't think he ever cleared 6'2, but rather guys like Arnie (big Arnie that is) and Leo are 0.5in shorter than listed. Tarantino looked a strong 6'1 in his prime. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he measured near 6'1.5 in his younger days, now he looks more or less 6'1 with a bit more extra weight and sloppy posture, and Cameron barely edges him by 0.5in... Does anyone have a picture of a young Cameron and Tarantino standing side by side? That would have been interesting to see.

IMO - Cameron: 6'2 peak, 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 now. Tarantino: 6'1.25 peak, 6'0.75 or 6'1 now. Big Arnie: 6'1, 2015 Arnie: 5'11.25 or 5'11.5. Leo: 5'11.

@Rampage: Agreed. He's 60 years old now, so could have lost about 0.5in. Maybe it's just a more sloppy posture that's now making him appear a little under 6'2 though. But I'd say 6'1.75 as of 2015 and 6'2.25 for his peak has to be possible, as he looks a decent 1-1.25in taller than "Big Arnie" in the above photo - so I doubt Arnie was ever over 6'1-1.25. Young Arnie looked shorter than young Kevin Bridges as well, so there's also that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/13
I agree, Cole. He might be more 6ft1.5-6ft1.75 today. But looking at old photos from Titanic he has Leo by about 3in. At least 6ft2/188cm in the 90s.

Rob, could he maybe have been a little over it in his 20s?
[Editor Rob: a solid 6ft 2 is possible]
cole said on 22/Dec/13
More towards the 6'1.5 mark today I'd say.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/13
Those pictures are weird. He looks noticeably shorter than James Cameron (who is/was 6ft2) which would pretty much rule out the 6ft1.5 claim yet he's a few inches taller than Robert Patrick who was at least a strong 5ft11?
Arch Stanton said on 18/Oct/13
He looks more 6'1" range today, fractionally taller than Tarantino I think.He definitely looked a legit 6'2" peak though.
Dmeyer said on 25/Apr/13
Rob by the Time of terminator 2 wath was the height diferance between him and arnie , its hard to see less than 1 in and possibly 1.25-1.5 in even considering footwear
[Editor Rob: by that time it's not impossible he dropped a small fraction of height]
Trent said on 1/Nov/12
Sorry, Rob. Could you put that last post on Arnold's page?
Trent said on 1/Nov/12
Also, here are some good pics of him with James Cameron (who has described himself as 6'2) in 1992. The difference is severely exaggerated, because Cameron is in cowboy boots, and Arnold is in flat sneakers. But I would still say it makes a peak of 6 foot seem reasonable:
