6'0 peak is about right , He looked 5'11.75 at age 54 with Rob
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/17
Rob, maybe 6ft peak?
Jim Hopper said on 5/Aug/17
Not over 5-11"
RichardSpain said on 2/Aug/17
Seems 180 cm next to Rob . Maybe in his younger days was a strong 182cm
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Aug/17
Pictures can be misleading and vary depending on camera position. Rob has demonstrated this on Mike Tyson's page, Carl Weathers and others. Michael guest-starred on Criminal Minds season 4 episode "Cold Comfort" and there's a good scene to compare him to 5'11" Joe Mantegna and Michael is definitely a bit taller face to face. Michael looks a solid 5'11" in this photo if Rob isn't dropping more height, so that's not a big leap to 182 cm or weak 6 foot range.

Btw, great photo, Rob. One of the best you have on the site, imo.

If you track this idiot Charlie, he is famous for shaving 3" off Celebrs on this Site. Like Giving holyfield 5'11 when he is 6'1 with Rob.

5'10.5 Is not waaaay off Michael's Height. As In my past posts I had him at around that height myself b/c that's what he is in the picture.

If he gave you an Rob a taller impression in person that he could very well be above 5'11. I am going by pictures initially b/c thats all I've got.

That is not to say your or Rob is Lying b/c of some Agenda.

In other words If I met this guy and He was 5'11.5" instead of the 5'10.5" like in the picture, I would not be shocked either.

Keep in Mind I happen to be an avid Sci Fi Junkie and I Like Michael's characters he has portrayed. Also hear he is a cool guy so I'm not trying to downgrade his height b/c I dislike him. I think he looks under 5'11 but if you and Rob said he was taller, Then so be it he very well may have been.
Shredder said on 16/Jul/17
Jordan , Rob and myself both met him , no way in hell he is 5'10.5 , unless he had massive lifts in his shoes.
Jordan87 said on 13/Jul/17

1st Time in the History Of Reading your Posts where you are not that Off with your Estimate( In my ever so Humble Opinion).....Congrats, you Lunatic Troll.
Shredder said on 25/Jun/17
He looks 5'11 or just over in the pic , but Me and Rob both met him and as listed is the very less he can be before 2015
Charlie said on 23/Jun/17
He looks 5'10.5
the Shredder said on 18/Jun/17
Rob , in that case I am sure he was 6'0 in his prime.
Shredder said on 17/Jun/17
Rob was 5'11.75 the very most you thought he looked back in 2010?
Editor Rob: compared to the photographer, I wouldn't really go less than that.
Shredder said on 13/Jun/17
Trust me and Rob , he isn't below 5'11.5
World Citizen said on 2/Jun/17
Looks 5 ft 10.75
berta said on 5/May/17
i think eiher strong 182 ore weak 183 guy at peak he really looked 183 in terminator and aliens. well in most of his movies.he is a skinny guy so i would think that he is one of the guys that will loose height in a earlier age than someone with a little more muscles.6 foot peak an 5`11 1/2 today
Shredder said on 28/Apr/17
Rob , you thought about 5'11.5 now? He did look 6 '0 in the 80's.
Editor Rob: he looked a bit more frail...but then I think he is a more shy guy than I would have thought, or maybe it's just taking photos with fans can be a bit awkward for some actors.
Shredder said on 27/Apr/17
Rob , you still thought he was this listing when you saw him recently? He didn't look 5''1?
Editor Rob: he could have been more 5ft 11.25 range...
Richardspain said on 27/Apr/17
I don't know guys..many actors is difficult know their height. The cinema have a lot of lies. I think the important to the actors is their looks and faces and voice and the greats moments they gave us.

About Michael he never was a solid 185cm maybe with footwear. I think he was a strong 183cm and today 182 cm no less.
berta said on 26/Apr/17
183 at peak. 182,5 today
Jordan87 said on 17/Apr/17
Film Man,

Funny that comment reminds me. My Cousins were young when the Original Terminator came out( 1984) and apparently all the females in the audience were gushing over Michael more than Arnold.
Shredder said on 8/Apr/17
This is a case where an actor is looking shorter than he really is. He is as listed minimum
176cm stu said on 7/Apr/17
The feature that allows you to see a height chart by scrolling your mouse over top of the picture is really useful! Good idea with that one
Film man said on 7/Apr/17
Bang on. Awesome actor, handsome chap, too.
Shredder said on 28/Feb/17
I give him 6'0 peak and 5'11.5 now , When Me and Rob met him He was as listed
King of the hill 91 said on 26/Feb/17
Could he be 183. 5 cm at some point peak or early morning do think peak he could be over 183 cm peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Feb/17
Out of bed: 184-185cm
Before bed: 182-183cm
Shredder said on 14/Feb/17
Face to face I wouldn't have guessed just 5'11 or 5'11.5. The listed height was the lowest I though he looked.
Johan said on 13/Feb/17
Well if you measure in at 5'11.75" and claim 6 ft its not really lying, he probably wakes around 6'0.5" - 184 cm.
King of the hill 91 said on 11/Feb/17
Rob he and bill paxton are in there sixtys could they both lost height could bill paxton be 183 cm peak out of bed or maybe weake or flat 183 cm and could Michael be 183.5 cm peak maybe out of bed
Shredder said on 10/Feb/17
In person I wouldn't have given him less than this listing.
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Feb/17
I do think that the standard of Michael's films has been consistently high throughout his career!
I noticed he was pretty tall in the film 'Cherry Falls', where he is teaching his daughter, played by Brittany Murphy, 5ft3 according to her fansite, self-defence! He looked at least the height stated here!
The other night, I saw him in a film called 'Psych 9', playing a detective. This was a more up-to-date film, but Michael still cut a fine figure and didn't look like he'd lost much height, if at all! I believe the film was from a fairly recent year - 2010, so I will go ahead with a guess of 5ft11.5 for Michael.
Shredder said on 7/Feb/17
He only claims 6 ft , he might have been an honest one and lost a little height. In person he is over 5'11 , no matter what Rob's pic shows
berta said on 7/Feb/17
i think he was 183 peak but today he is 1/4 under this listing. he looks like a guy with small bones that would shrink early
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/17
Rob, how likely is 6ft peak?
Editor Rob: you can still make a case for it, in Aliens I think he could have looked like it.
Shredder said on 6/Feb/17
Is it possible I could have saw him as a 6'1 er from that angle?
Editor Rob: it's not impossible, sometimes also the body frame/posture of someone can enhance how they look.

Last time I seen D'Lo brown standing about I thought the guy was no more than 6ft and barely taller than say Michael...but D'Lo can stretch up to at least 6ft 1 range...but you wouldn't think it based on his frame and how he stands around on his own.
Shredder said on 6/Feb/17
Rob , another question on him , I saw him from this angle in your video at 4:26 when I met him ... Click Here , now I was maybe standing a hair under 5 ft 7 in my footwear , so if he was standing about 6'1 in his then what height could I have seen him at with him having more footwear and from that angle?

Is it possible I saw him bigger than he actually is?
Editor Rob: sometimes angles or the level a person holds their eyeline can fool us...

if you asked me who looked taller beside Malcolm (the photographer) out of these guys: Michael, Cumberbatch, Jamie Campbell Bower, I'd say Jamie was the taller out of those 3, with not much between Michael/Benedict, but possibly Michael's hard to say because slight footwear differences, but Jamie seemed much nearer Big Alex for instance.
Shredder said on 4/Feb/17
Rob , what would he measure in shes? The ones you met him in?
Editor Rob: a possibility of almost 6ft 1, I know that day I was in an exact inch heel so I was a solid 5ft 9 in shoes.
Shredder said on 27/Jan/17
Are you losing any height here ?
Editor Rob: not losing much that moment.
Shredder said on 27/Jan/17
Rob , can you add that other pic of him from this same event? He actually looks taller in it.
Editor Rob: I'm still in movement, so Malcolm retook it and this is the photo I have.
Unfortunately on the other occasion at Glasgow, he wasn't up for doing the salute pose (like I asked Ricco Ross and Jenette Goldstein to do, and they were happy).
Shredder said on 18/Nov/16
He's not that short in person , He is about the listed height.
Redwing said on 17/Nov/16
If you were straight he'd be 2 inches taller than you, he must 178.5-79 cm tall.
Shredder said on 4/Oct/16
3 years ago he was over 5'11 with ease . In fact he looked taller than Guys other 5 ft 11 guys like jon Bernthal
philll said on 3/Oct/16
he look a fraction over 5"11 there but he has better posture so id say 5"11 or a bit over
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/16
Rob, how likely is 5ft11 flat today?
Editor Rob: it's possible he is nearer 5ft 11 and change than nearly 6ft
S.J.H said on 21/Sep/16
He doesn't look taller than bill paxton with rob. Seriously after those 6'0 listed actor with rob usually get downgrade here at 5'11.5-5'11.75 like david anders , bill paxton , christopher gorham , michael bieh here they all llook the same height like a typical 5'11 get listed or claim an inch up
Shredder said on 1/Sep/16
Rob , would you say this is a rare case where he is losing more than he appears? He looks just 5'11 or at best 5'11.25 or so in this pic , but me and you both met him and thought closer to 6 ft. I just can't picture him measuring under 5 '11.5 after seeing him in person.
Editor Rob: in the same way Tyson can look a bit taller than he is? Yes, because Biehn is at least 1.5 inches taller than Tyson in person...
Shredder said on 11/Aug/16
I saw him in early 2014 , he looked like a 6 footer , maybe he lost some height or his footwear was bigger than I remembered.
MSA said on 10/Aug/16
I have met Michael Biehn and Mads Mikkelsen this year both in the afternoon. Both are listed at 5"11.75' but Mads looked taller. I think Michael is 5'11 in the afternoon.
Shredder said on 3/Aug/16
In the pic he does appear 5'11 . In person he was taller as he can be losing posture somewhere.
gian92 said on 28/Jul/16
the measurements report 5'11
Jordan87 said on 19/Jul/16
Yes Shredder,

Give him 5'10.5 already....bc that is what he is my friend. Heh Heh
Shredder said on 17/Jul/16
Rob , give him 5'10.5 already ;)
Editor Rob: he'll be nearer that in 15 years.
Shredder said on 16/Jul/16
His hair was flat when I met him , He looked way taller than 5'10.5
Jordan87 said on 15/Jul/16

He may have given you a 6 foot impression but if anything Rob has the Worse posture in the pic above. His hair puts him at 5'11. He is 5'10.5 now, maybe he was a bit taller in his younger years but he is not a 6 footer nowadays.

I understand people like certain Celebs b/c they grew up on their Movies ( Yes Michael Was excellent in Aliens) so it influences them to try to make them taller. The fact is this Man is not 6 feet tall, is more 5'10.5, 5'11 tops now. Maybe in his prime, but Shredder I think his hair influenced you b/c even with it in the pic above he is 5'11.
Kyuss123 said on 9/Jul/16
5-11 max
Shredder said on 30/Jun/16
This is exactly what he looked like when I met him , In fact that was the after noon I met him. I'm trying to find video or Photos of his footwear. When he stood up by his booth , I thought he looked 6 ft easily.

Click Here
Jordan87 said on 23/Jun/16
I know in Terminator 1984, on the police Radio ( Once Reese and Sarah Escaped the Police Station) he was described at 6'0 175. He was a lean guy in that movie he would have to be around 5'11-6'0 to weigh 175lbs with his lean frame. Really was a Small guy in comparison to Arnold who must have weighed 230 in T-1.
Shredder said on 22/Jun/16
His hairline starts about 5'10.25 , that is not the top of his head. He really does look 5'11 ish here. He might be losing height somewhere in this pic. Rob might be too
Jordan87 said on 21/Jun/16
Rob, Shredder.

In reality judging by the pic his head is actually more 5'10.25" which is weird he always gave me a taller impression, especially in aliens he was taller than Bill Paxton who was at least 5'10.5.
Shredder said on 20/Jun/16
Rob , can you make a line where his head ends?
Editor Rob: it would be roughly 5ft 11 there, but then he is taller up close than jon berthnal I'm sure you'd agree...and Jon 'look' 6ft in one photo.
Jordan87 said on 20/Jun/16

He may look over 5'11 in person, I guess Rob's above picture is nothing to go by b/c he is 5'10.5 in it. Not sure I have never met the man but he looks 5'10.5 if we are going by the Picture with Rob, Nothing taller.
Shredder said on 19/Jun/16
He's taller than 5'10 guys like Jason David Frank , C.Thomas Howell in person etc , He also was taller than 5'10.5 , 5'11 Jon Berthal in person. The guy is at least 5'11.5 in person , Unless his footwear was more than I thought.
Editor Rob: the last time I seen him in Glasgow, he still looked somewhere in 5ft 11+ range, but he wasn't standing as well with people.
Shredder said on 18/Jun/16
No way was he 5'10.75 , he would have looked less than 5'11 in person. Looking at the line he is at least 5'11 next to Rob. I can maybe see 5'11 arguments , but 5'10.5 is crazy.
jtm said on 18/Jun/16
what's more confusing is rob even looks like he's losing more height!
Jordan87 said on 16/Jun/16
Top of his head is only at 5'10.5. Where are people getting over 5'11 from? That's his hair people. If we are counting Hair then Lady GAGA is 5'9.
Shredder said on 15/Jun/16
In Person he looks his listed height with ease and his 6 ft even claim is believable , with that said he only looks slightly over 5'11 with Rob.
berta said on 14/Jun/16
in this photo he doesnt really look taller than a weak 180 guy then he have boots on wich make him 179. But maybe the pgoto fool ut because in all his Movies he looks like a 183 guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Mar/16
Rob, who gave a taller impression, this guy or Bill Paxton?
NBAer said on 24/Feb/16
Looks 180-181cm range to me,don't know about his peak...Maybe he's more 5'11.25, Rob?
Spike said on 19/Feb/16
Easily a 6 footer (183cm) in his prime.
the shredder said on 14/Dec/15
Rob , do youthink in person he appears taller than your picture shows? He does look only about 5'11.25 here.
Editor Rob: this year he still looked a good 5ft 11 range, if he has lost a small fraction it's hard to tell
the shredder said on 4/Dec/15
He does honestly only look a good 5'11 here , but in person he was tall. He was taller than a 5'11 guy like Jon Berthal in person.
Lonestar said on 3/Dec/15
No he does'nt even look 5'11.25 at lowest let alone 5'11.75 and 6'0. He still lucky to 5'11
The shredder said on 2/Nov/15
Rob , new pics up soon?
[Editor Rob: doesn't really add much to the page]
Rey said on 30/Sep/15
He does look closer to 6' IMO.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/15
"Peak height was 6ft 0in (183cm)"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Sep/15
Taller than Paxton, IMO.
the shredder said on 7/Sep/15
Rob , my facebook is acting up , I couldn't read your reply about him.
[Editor Rob: I would still say somewhere around 11.5 today is possible.]
Bionic117 said on 4/Aug/15
Hi Rob, From your previous comments it seems you believe (as I do) that he was comfortably 6ft/ 183 until maybe the last 5 years or so where he has lost a fraction of height with age. If that's accurate could you please make the addition of his "Peak Height" of 6ft (183cm) to this page as you have done with many celebs who have lost height with age. Cheers.
the shredder said on 2/Jul/15
Rob , If you are not closer or in front of him , than 5'11.5 seems better , He really looks under 6 foot here.
glynny182 said on 2/Jun/15
could he of been a full 183 in the 80s Rob or would you say he could not of reached that height even at his peak/prime
glynny182 said on 2/Jun/15
could he of been a full 183 in the 80s Rob or would you say he could not of reached that height even at his peak/prime
[Editor Rob: he could have been a few mm taller in 80's than when in his 50's.]
the shredder said on 9/May/15
Rob is 5'11. , 5'11.25 possible? He looks it with you.
[Editor Rob: almost 6ft I think is what he would measure near.]
the shredder said on 15/Apr/15
Honestly looked more 6'0 than 5'11 to me.
Shane said on 14/Apr/15
Worked with him several years ago. Solid 6'0 barefoot in the sand.
Actually my brother and I were surprised how tall he was in person.

Super nice guy, very easy going.
The shredder said on 1/Apr/15
He is well over 5 '11 , the shortest he seemed was 6 '0 .
Sean73 said on 27/Mar/15
Looked a solid 6 foot in the 80's.He's gotta be in the next Alien movie!Fingers crossed!
the shredder said on 26/Feb/15
Dave Mav , Face to face with him I witnessed the same , a good 6 '0 .
Dave Mav said on 25/Feb/15
weird, because face to face he seemed a little over 6'! but in this he looks the billed 5'11.5 or so
Hypado said on 7/Feb/15
Michael Biehn

Peak: 183cm
Now: 182cm
Bon_ said on 2/Feb/15
Pardon me, I said I'm 184 cm flat at my lowest. However it seems it's really 184.5 cm(184 cm flat when I do alot of walking/excercise on certain day).

Concerning Michael Biehn, 5'11.75 for his generation is a great height, something like 6'1-ish for today's 'white' youth. And still even today it's a great and very aestethic looking height.
the shredder said on 23/Jan/15
Me , Rob , and Mamun saw 6 ft , there has to be a catch to it
Alex 6'0 said on 22/Jan/15
He does have a long forehead so his eye level is going to be more from top of his head than 4.5 inches. 5 inches from top of head seems right. I still see 3 inches. 5'11.25
the shredder said on 21/Jan/15
Looking again , he looks over 5 '11 with Rob . Me and Rob did not see over 5 '11 for nothing , He has a long forehead.
the shredder said on 19/Jan/15
When I met him he looked well over 5 '11 , more 6 ft , but he does look 5'11.25 at best here and not even 5'11 in my pic.
184.3cm said on 19/Jan/15
He can look like a 181cm guy but his forehead is pretty long so i think 182cm is fair but id say more 5'11.5 than a guy pushing 6'.
Alex 6'0 said on 19/Jan/15
I think 5'11-5'11.25 is what he would measure. I see about 3 inches or maybe just below. Also I clearly look to have an inch more on Rob than he does
the shredder said on 9/Jan/15
He only looks 5'11 to 11.5 with Rob but I met him and thought 6 ft easily.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/15
Rob could 5ft11½ be closer or are you still convinced that he's literally just a couple of millimetres off that magical 6ft mark?
the shredder said on 9/Dec/14
Rob , do you know the photographer is fore sure 5'11.5 ?
[Editor Rob: without measuring him he's as close to that, sometimes he'd wear converse, a boot or mountain style shoe.
the shredder said on 8/Dec/14
So he looked almost 6 ft , meaning 5'11.75 to you ? Maybe 5'11.5 is closer? I really can't tell a 5 '11.5 guy from 6 ft just by looking at them next to nothing but a background lol. I personally thought a good 6'0 with more footwear than me.
[Editor Rob: it helped the photographer was close to 5ft 11.5 himself...but people will look a general range, I think you can pinpoint it more if you have somebody whose height you know.]
the shredder said on 8/Dec/14
Rob , in person what's the tallest he looked? I thought he looked well over 5'11.
[Editor Rob: I thought in the 'almost 6ft' zone, but not as convinced of a full 6ft because those kind of boots he wears can give more than 1 inch.]
the shredder said on 1/Nov/14
He does look to weight a little more in Terminator than now , peak 6 '0 , now 5 '11.5.
Vibram said on 30/Oct/14
Easily weak 6ft back in good ol' 1984 when he made Terminator. Probaby 165lbs tops in that.
the shredder said on 25/Oct/14
Rob ,is he losing any height at all here and is he shoes the same height as yours?
[Editor Rob: I think he's standing decent, I have an exact 1-inch shoe, his were those kind of boots, I think These ones he had on, so definitely no less.]
the shredder said on 24/Oct/14
Rob , he claims 6 ft here .. Go down to him talking about Hill St Blues.

Click Here
the shredder said on 17/Oct/14
yea Rampage , he for sure is over 5'11 . I met him too. No way under 5'11.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/14
Rob, are you sure he's pushing 6ft?

He looks nowhere near it beside you
[Editor Rob: well he's over 5ft 11 that's a certainty!]
the shredder said on 25/Sep/14
Rob are you losing height in the pic?
[Editor Rob: slight leans sometimes barely take away height, I mean look at me with Matthew Davis - I leant left but didn't drop much height, a small fraction.]
The Shredder said on 20/Sep/14
Seemed taller than listed in my face. I thought more like 6'0.5.
judd said on 18/Sep/14
5'11.5"-75" with rob
the shredder said on 17/Aug/14
5'11 to 6 ft is what he would measure. I did notice he looked taller when he first stood up behind the table than when we took the pic.
Alex 6'0 said on 16/Aug/14
Shredder, he had slightly bigger footwear like 1/4 inch you said but also was leaning slightly in the pic. In your pic he would have looked maybe 5'11.5 taking those into account.
Alex 6'0 said on 15/Aug/14
That's true people can measure a bit different than they look in pics. I can look 4-4.25 taller than Rob but it was 3 7/8 difference when measured. Biehn looks 3-3.25 taller but could be 3.5 but no more. With a 4.75 eye level it does look more closer to 3 inch difference. 5'11.5 is fair but 5'11.25 I think can be spot on.
the shredder said on 15/Aug/14
Maximus , I met him too , He had bigger shoes than me but appear a strong 6 '
Maximus said on 14/Aug/14
Easy 5'11" to 6'......there is a definite difference between him and Rob by at least 3 to 4 inches.
the shredder said on 13/Aug/14
Yea Rob , what would you see is the difference between you and him? I see 3.25.
[Editor Rob: I think it is in 3-3.25 range, but measured difference might be 3.5in range.]
Alex 6'0 said on 12/Aug/14
Rob, his eye level is 5 inches you'd say?
[Editor Rob: with some hair recession (maybe a half inch for him) it can make your forehead start looking longer, but I would say maybe 4.75.]
the shredder said on 9/Aug/14
Rob , can 5'11.5 be a better fit ? He is barely 3.5 over you and had a fraction more shoe .
[Editor Rob: in 80's near enough 6ft I think is good enough for him, by 2010's maybe he could be a little bit less]
the shredder said on 8/Aug/14
alex , after really looking again , he does not even look 3.5 over Rob and he has a fraction more footwear , he can't be 5'11.75
the shredder said on 8/Aug/14
really don't see more than 3 , 3.5 with rob. 5'11.5 is a better shout
the shredder said on 3/Aug/14
He was at least 5'11 in person. an Uncle of mine is 5'10.25 and Beihn looked bigger next to me than he does.
Alex 6'0 said on 2/Aug/14
5'11.5 max with Rob really
the shredder said on 31/Jul/14
He looked no less than his listed height next to me when standing at his fullest
PLB said on 29/Jul/14
In retrospect, I wish he had been the governor of California.

Speaking of Arnold, they appear to have been just about the same height. Biehn was one of the best actors to ever favor an action picture while Arnold was just about the worst.

In terms of physique of course Arnold was much heavier but Biehn was very fit and didn't have Arnold's bad heart. In some kind of decathlon Biehn might win.

Of course Cameron worked hard at making Arnold look bigger but I'll have to pay attention next time I watch it. Biehn might be taller.

Rob is 6' 0 Peak
the shredder said on 16/Jul/14
Rob, would you say the 175 lbs on his weight now or doing
Terminator ?
[Editor Rob: probably not much different nowadays to his 80's, which seemes in 170=80 range]
the shredder said on 6/Jul/14
Thanks Rob , I thought he lost about an inch before the shot was taking , He was standing for about a good min or 2 before we took it. I talked to him for like 8 mins lol , he was very cool to me. Honestly when he stood I did not think he looked less than about 6'0 , he for sure looked a good bit taller than Norman reedus and C.Thomas Howell next to me. He had more footwear than me though.
the shredder said on 6/Jul/14
rob , how many inches between me and him in my photo ?
[Editor Rob: maybe a bit more than 4, how much posture he can lose is always a harder thing to guess, sometimes a half inch or 1.5 inch can be hard to tell in a moment!]
the shredder said on 4/Jul/14
He has a long forehead , I see at least 3.5 with him and Rob , He looked 6'
0.5 in person to me but had more shoe height , No way was he just 5'11 when he stood good next to me , when we took the pic he was leaning.
Alucard said on 1/Jul/14
Looks between 5'10 and 5'11 with you Rob, maybe 5'11 spot on, but absolutely nothing more...
the shredder said on 24/May/14
He does have a long forehead in person , He honestly looked a good 6 ft to me
Alex 6'0 said on 23/May/14
Shredder, His forehead is longer than average making his eye level look in the 5 inch range. He really looks right at 3 inches or slightly more taller than Rob. Yea 5'11.25 at worst but 5'11.5 I think may be spot on
the shredder said on 23/May/14
Rob , even though I saw him 6 ft , Alex thinks he looks 5 '11.25 in your pic and mine.
[Editor Rob: I think almost 6ft is fine for him...that's what he looked.]
Alex 6'0 said on 22/May/14
5'11.5 Id say. He is def shorter than Mark Selby who is a solid 6'0 on here.
the shredder said on 10/Apr/14
He had something like this when I saw him ... Click Here

I had on theses ... Click Here
[Editor Rob: yeah it was like that style, which can give a fraction over an inch.]
the shredder said on 9/Apr/14
Rob , how much more shoes did he have? was he in boots?
[Editor Rob: not boots like timberland but more a hike style, I don't think really much more than an inch (which is what I was wearing).]
the shredder said on 7/Apr/14
He looked about 6'0.5 next to me when standing fully with his boots. As listed is perfect.
Kyle Reese said on 4/Apr/14
I think he may have been a full 6 foot in the 80's, to be honest. Looked tall next to Linda Hamilton in The Terminator. And after the scene where Arnie kills the gun shop owner, he towers over a few pedestrians.
the shredder said on 31/Mar/14
He looked more than 5'11.5 to me , he was a good 6" to 6'1 in boots.
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 29/Mar/14
Micheal looks more 181.5cm with you Rob i think maybe he could be a weak 182. He did look close to 6ft in Aliens though, i can believe he was a legit 6ft in the 80s.
the shredder said on 25/Mar/14
He looked over 6 ft standing fully by me but he did have boots on. He might be a weak 6 ft. Even though he looks under 5'11 in my photos.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Mar/14
Yeah I guessed about 6 ft. he looked a bit taller than Sigourney in Aliens. Still looks good at his age.
the shredder said on 26/Feb/14
He was leaning a bit , he was strong 6'0 next to me but had boots , I'm sure a good 1/2 over me.
the shredder said on 24/Feb/14
He looked 6 ft easily next to me in boots.
Anon said on 23/Feb/14
He looks 5'10.5" max with the shredder...
the shredder said on 22/Feb/14
Rob He only looks 5'11.5 with you
[Editor Rob: nearly 6ft is fair I think... he looks a strong 6ft in a photo with an agent that day, but then the agent who gets photos isn't a guy who stands that well at times...]
the shredder said on 13/Feb/14
Rob he was leaning in but I agree he does look about 5'11.5 in my pic ... I think he could have added about an inch in posture , still he had boots and I had water shoes on. I think he is as listed , I did feel short next to him though lol.
[Editor Rob: he might measure very near 6ft, but I felt I had a 182 guy standing there with him and thought he was very similar.
Bon_ said on 13/Feb/14
I am 184.1 cm at night (6'0.5 on the dot) and if someone from the inch-measuring world asked me I would have said I'm about 6'1, because six feet and half inch sounds weird.
the shredder said on 12/Feb/14
Here is my pic with him guys. He was in boots so about 0.5 more footwear ... I am standing about 5'6.25 here.

[Editor Rob: he doesn't look above 6ft]

Looks barely 6 ft in my photo though lol.

Really looked 6' , 6'1 range , had boots on , I have a pic
joe joe said on 22/Jan/14
list what normal person goes around saying they are 5'11.75 anyone in the normal world outside of this site who is 1m82 says they are 6 ft. even if you go to the doctors and they measure you at 182. they call it 6 foot. no one goes around say "oh I'm 5'11.75" thats weird. reading through some of the posts is a little infuriating. Im 1m 85 which i guess is just under 6'1 but I still say I'm 6'1 not 6.075. that would be weird and a little bit crazy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/13
Maybe 6ft in the 80s, Rob?
Dmeyer said on 19/Mar/13
Rob he looked 5'11.75 if his shoes was just 1 in ?
[Editor Rob: I think around 182 is probably fair I feel]
Stephen said on 10/Jan/13
181, not quite 182
tom said on 5/Jan/13
LG69 said on 8/Nov/12
Not quite 4" difference. Plus his shoes had "possibly more" lift than Rob's shoes. I'd say 5'11.5" tops.
mofo said on 20/Oct/12
He looked about the same height as Sigourney Weaver in Aliens!
Lo sgozzatore said on 20/Oct/12
Well, its legit if he claims 6'! If he really is 182, he's close enough to say 6'! Thats when 5'11 people (see Timberlake) claim 6'2 that it gets ridicolous!
Sam said on 18/Oct/12
Rob, he claims being 6 foot even in this interview:

george said on 4/Oct/12
You may find it interesting that there are racial differences in arm span. Blacks have longer arms in proportion to their body than whites. I used to watch boxing matches and noticed that a black guy who is 5'9" or 5'10" would have a reach about the same as a white fighter who is 6'2." Also, women have longer legs in proportion to their body than men. I've noticed that a woman who is 5'8" might have legs as long as a man who is 6.'
Dmeyer said on 20/Sep/12
5 ft 11.5 today 5'11.75 peak 0.25 in loss is normal by 50 plus , on c minds seemed near 182cm At worst strong 181cm like me

Having him beloe 6 doesn't seem right. If he says he is 6 feet, why not list him as 6 feet?
boby said on 9/Nov/11
he is amazing i love him so much ,, he is really attractive
Gina said on 8/Nov/11
hey ROB , i want to ask u how 2 persons that have the same height have a different reach ? ( i dont know what is the relation between height and reach ,can u plz explain that to me ).. thx a lot in advance :)
[Editor Rob: there is some variation in armspans or reach at the same height. You could have one person with height:armspan ratio of 1:0.98 and another with 1:1.06, so they'd have a bigger reach.]

seems to be a 4" height difference between rob and Michael....6' is about right.
Maximus said on 29/Oct/11
6' is fair....nothing below that....looks 6' compared to sigourney weaver in aliens. It is obvious that he is at least 6'
Balthier said on 28/Oct/11
Come with me if you want to live! He looks surprisingly tall next to a 5'8 guy but I guess that's what a 6 ft guy look like. The more I have been on this site and the more I have measured people, the more a realize that 6ft actually is kinda tallish looking.
carnegie said on 25/Oct/11
this guy loooked huge in planet terror he did look very close to 6ft

@the shredder says on 25/Oct/11
This guy is an awesome actor ... the Oscars are about your actor friends voting for you ... Btw , Legend , I don't understand ... your height is a perfect height .

Ancient Greek perfect proportioned statue was based on a 5'10 man. I've already said my opinion about the perfect height being 5'10(but only if your proportions are flawless). 5'11 and 6' is also excellent but 5'10 is the best. More than 6' is unnecessary, cause 5'10 is already tall enough. 5'9 is good, but only good and 5'8 is not bad, but only not bad, nothing more than that. it's funny when 6'.5'' guy claims 6'2 just cause he's clearly taller than 5'8-5'10 bunch around him and thinks everyone's blind.


if you're well proportioned, your height is best from an aesthetic point of view. self confidence that more often comes with a tall height than an average one is an other subject. if we're talking Greeks, Leonardo da Vinci, etc. ~5'10 rules any height.
TruebloodFan said on 25/Oct/11
Biehn really looked legit 6ft or even more in all his movies. I'm kinda surprised with under 6' listing, but next to Rob, he does give a 5ft11.5-.75 impression. must be his age.
the shredder said on 25/Oct/11

not a short guy.....6' sounds fair...definetly doesnt need lifts.
Lei Hei Parker said on 22/Oct/11
I am the same height and im only 14 hope I grow 6' more inches
Alex said on 22/Oct/11
It does appear on here most guys will say the perfect height is 6'1-6'1 1/2 range. In shoes I am in that range so I got a feeling of how it would be that tall but just not barefoot
Maximus said on 21/Oct/11
6' is fair. Definetly one actor who doesnt need elevator shoes. Sometimes you get taller than average guys wearing shoes with big heels but the truth is they dont really need it.....its actors like pacino, hoffman, cruise etc that need the lifts...not michael bien, arnold, vin, the rock, etc....these guys are 5'10" and above which puts even the 5'10" guy with regular shoes at 5'11" to almost 6'
Josh B said on 21/Oct/11
Rob, at what age would you consider adding peak and current height for a celebrity? Around the 55/60 mark i would assume but is it based on the individual or just in general? Beihn at 54 is not far off 57 Malkovich who does have peak and current height.
[Editor Rob: once you get into 60's the chances of half inch loss are more than 50-55 range...I think half inch losses are better to list than little 1/4 inches]
jake, 1.82 m said on 21/Oct/11
I'm 5"11.75 and ideally, I'd like to be 2 inches taller. I'm content with my height but I really don't see what's so ridiculous about wanting to be a bit taller.
the shredder said on 21/Oct/11
Rob ... Do you think women now days would still love Dean and Brando at there height ?
[Editor Rob: yeah I'm sure many would]
mofo said on 21/Oct/11
Yes Robby Rob finally I have waited a long time for this, as I stated before a long time ago...

Now let's see looks a solid 5ft11.75 based on footwear and height calculations so yeah, perhaps Rob you should put peak height at 6ft?
[Editor Rob: I've assumed he has 1 inch shoes like me, but if he has more than that then the guy might be 5ft 11.25-5 range to me.

I don't know at 54 whether he lost height though]
Reality said on 20/Oct/11
Practically 6ft next to Mamun and over 5'11 next to Rob.I think 5'11.75 is fair.

Legend , depressed over 5'10 ... I'm 5'6.5 man . I have long pants that I walk on lol and I feel short with my friends lol .
Mamun said on 20/Oct/11
I am not too happy about my height either !


Legend said on 20/Oct/11
6'1 is ok Alex, but I just mean there is no reason to be truly depressed about your height if you are over 5'11 or 6 ft already. I wish I was just one inch taller at 5'11. How perfect would that be...
the shredder said on 20/Oct/11
Alex ... folks are ignorant with heights now days ... like they want this image of 6'2 and think that 5'9 is short ... Heights that Brando and James Dean were under .
Alex said on 19/Oct/11
Legend, I am 6'0 or a hair over and I am very content with my height but it does appear 6'1 is the ideal height for a lot of guys
Alex said on 19/Oct/11
Looks a bit more than 5'11 flat but not 6'0 either
LAN Jiao said on 19/Oct/11
did' notice michael biehn is tall. i thought he was average on 5-9 over. with mamun he had an inch advantage shoe look 5'11 frame not account shoe. with rob mike look 5'11 top.
Editor Rob said on 18/Oct/11
I don't know the make of the boots, he had the same ones the day I saw him and I had exact 1-inch heel myself, so if they were anywhere near 1.5 you could say 'near 1 inch more than mamun, 0.5 inch more than me'
arbiem said on 17/Oct/11
wow, that guy is wearing some serious boots.
Mathew said on 17/Oct/11
Could be 6' next to Mamun, depending on exactly how much his boots give him.
TNTinCA said on 17/Oct/11
He looks like he has pretty good sized footwear in these pics. But I would still agree that he was probably close to 6 foot in his prime.
He looked about the same height as Sigourney in Aliens.
SAK said on 17/Oct/11
I was thought he was in the 5ft11-6ft range. Looking @ the comparison pics, 182cm is right.
Legend said on 17/Oct/11
This shows how tall a 5'11 guy can look. And yet we have people on this site who are 6ft or taller that want to be even taller than they are. Ridiculous.
USYD said on 17/Oct/11
181.5cm to me.
truthman said on 17/Oct/11
His shoes looks like Skechers afterburn shoes which i've seen in store. They give you good 1.6-1.75 inches.
Hullywood said on 17/Oct/11
Mamun looks taller then i, i think, but i´m 1.75m :/
This guy looks 1.82-1.83m, not under 1.81m.
anon said on 2/Aug/11
I was on set for a movie called Sushi Girl a couple months back and met Biehn and I was shocked at how tall he was. I'm 5'10" and my guess was that he was closer to 6'1" (though he did have some big shoes on). He was also at least an inch taller than Jeff Fahey when we were all talking together, who is listed as 6' on here.

190 lbs? thats like 13,14 stone.he looks lighter than that in terminator way lighter.

Accurate, solid six foot and probably more like 190lbs, standing on the beach with no shoes.
ted said on 27/Dec/06
yeah I met him a few times in 86 when I was bouncing in London. He's about an inch or so shorter than me 6'1" so 6ft. No taller.
Elio said on 15/Dec/06
Biehn and Arnie only share one single camera shot in Terminator where they are both stood next to each other, during which Arnie is being shot with a shotgun. So i'd hardly say 'Terminator' is a good movie to compare the two. Even if they both stood back to back in the movie it would be hard to judge as Biehn is wearing very flat sneakers and Arnold is wearing 'hideous leather boots' :) (his own words).
Big Dave said on 15/Dec/06
That looks about right. He did appear shorter than Arnie in The Terminator simply because he was. Arnie was nearly 6'2 in the 80's
TNTinCA said on 14/Feb/06
That seems about right for his height. In Aliens, he and Sigourney Weaver had several side by side scenes together and he was taller than she was. Not sure about footwear but being that she is so tall, it likely is an accurate height.
Interestingly, in Terminator, he did seem shorter than Arnie. Then again, that could have been footwear.
