How tall is Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone's Height

5ft 8 ¼ (173.4 cm)

Peak height was 5ft 9 (175.3 cm)
American actor best known for The Rocky, Rambo and Expendable series, Cliffhanger, Demolition Man, Judge Dredd and Cobra. In a 1991 interview with Longevity magazine he said "I'm 5'10" and in a 1993 edition of the New York Times added a fraction, saying "I'm exactly 5 feet 10 1/2 inches", although he once pushed his luck in a 1978 Playboy article claiming to stand "Five feet ten and three quarters tall."

Cinema.com, on meeting him, said "Sly, shorter than you expect at 5-foot-eight", which he even mentioned himself: "I'm shorter and skinnier than you Expected". His footwear has always been a source of contention and in a 1990 Chicago Times article, the journalist mentioned "The real-life Rambo is an official 5 foot 10 1/2 inches tall, but that is with the generous boost of what can only be described as elevator shoes". Indeed, a specialist Italian shoemaker once commented that he "made him 4.5 inches taller for 16 years!". Sly's penchant for lifts dates back to the 1970's, with fellow actor Kevin Conway remarking that Sly was only 5ft 9 and "wears lifts all the time". Sly himself even joked about it once, when commenting upon the size of Rocky IV co-star Dolph Lundgren:"I'm fighting with elevator shoes on, this is ridiculous." There are definitely several tricks to looking taller, one of which was highlighted by Expendables 3 co-star Kelsey Grammar, who said Sly was a great guy, "Except when he changed the camera angle a little bit to make me look shorter."

In the screenwriter William Goldman's book 'About Lies Stars Tell', he offered his own estimation of Sly's stature, saying "I had a hot lead that Sly was 67 inches," revealing his source to be a jogger of similar stature to Sly. Goldman described how he ventured into a swimming pool that Sly was in...and 10 minutes later, "He got out, grabbed a towel. I got out, grabbed a towel. He stood. I stood. Sixty-seven inches. Dripping wet." That estimate is shared by Hulk Hogan, who casually called Sly "Five Six/Five Seven" and also by an Amateur Boxer who worked on Rocky V, saying he was stunned at the shortness of Stallone and towered above him: "I always pictured him as being a big guy. But I'm 5-foot-9 and I was two-three inches taller than him."

An ex-partner of Sly - Supermodel Janice Dickenson - claimed in her book 'Everything about me is fake' that when Sly was trying to pick her up, she recalled "Who was this guy to go dissing me while he's standing there in his custom-made elevator shoes." and also that "I couldn't believe how short he was". Another actress, Melinda Dillon - from F.I.S.T - commented in The Chicago Tribune that "I'm taller than Sly and that bothers him and we kid about it so I take off my shoes in some scenes. I can't slouch or I wouldn't be Anna. She's very upright."

Fellow action stars have even chimed in on his hard-to-pin-down height, most notably Jean Claude Van Damme, who once said "I'm 5-foot-10, a good size for movies. If you're too big a guy, it's hard to find good villains. That's why Stallone always has good villains. He's short."

Weak 5'8" 2018. The question is, are we going to get an indictment and booking photo? Better call Sal....
Robby Harris said on 19/Jun/18
Yeah Brad, the barefoot shots with his wife are pretty much killer. Makes his weak 5'11" claim look to be an utter joke. 5'10.75" is too specific to ring true to me in any case. Most would simply round up. But to be 2" below that, in addition to being such a precise claim is laughable. Still "honest" to a degree though, afterall it's basically his lift height. The 2" rule worked in his favor. Trump should take that regime and call up Sly's special Italian shoe maker. He'll be the 6'3" he so badly wants to be in no time.
Robby Harris said on 19/Jun/18
5'8.5"-5'9" max at his peak & 5'8" flat today (maybe slightly over, but I doubt more). Same height as Mr. Bieber a couple years ago. I'll admit footwear is unseen, but Bieber usually wears flats (vans/converse), so it's unlikely Sly was at any real disadvantage.

I'd say Sly may take the "height enigma crown". Looking 5'7" to multiple reputable people, but somehow easily managing to clear six feet in lifts... obviously impossible for both to be compatible. He didn't look less than about 5'9" with John Travolta, while presumably liftless. Never really pulled off looking much more than about 5'11" with him when he wore lifts though.

Solid 5'9 peak.

@Robby Harris: I agree he was a weak 5'9" or 5'8.5" minimum and 5'9" max, but I don't view the photos with his wife as conclusive for his exact height for several reasons. One being we don't really know her height. A '93 NY Times profile had her 5'9.5" and 123 lbs, but then a '95 newspaper had her as a flat 5'9" while her official modeling height on fashion model directory is 5'9.5". Some 5'9" flat models do add a half inch like Cindy Crawford so I tend to agree 5'9" is most plausible, but playing Devil's Advocate, she could be as short 5'8.5" for all we know.

The other reason is their heights vary together. Here they are barefoot.

There doesn't look to be much of a difference in either. Both have their heads down in the first and while I believe Jennifer is dropping more height, Sly's legs don't look nearly as short as you'd expect compared to hers. She's slouching in the other photo, but he looks like he might be arching his back. Here's 2 more candids from 2013 where you can see Sly isn't wearing lifts or even socks for that matter, but his sneakers clearly give him an advantage over her flats: Click Here Click Here Sly has more relaxed posture than usual in the first pic, but if he's taller than her there, it's probably less than the difference between their footwear. I suspect she's slightly taller because she might make herself shorter with him even in candids out of habit, but it's tough to tell.
Robby Harris said on 18/Jun/18
I wonder who more of the bigger height enigma is: Charles Bronson, Sly Stallone, Michael Jackson or Tony Danza - you hear and see everything from 5'7" to 5'10" for these guys. My estimates have varied on them more than any other celeb. But of course I end up sticking with a "most reasonable range". There are others too, but these four always baffled me.

What's hilarious is the amount of people that believed he had leg-lengthening surgery a while ago. Ridiculous if we see him liftless in more recent pics, but as I said...he could look a good bit taller than usual in fairly comfortable looking footwear at times which could be quite puzzling, so it's not hard to understand why some would be fooled to have suspected that.
Bradley said on 18/Jun/18
He's a magician with height indeed. G was a magician, we still don't know about Portmans, tip-toe action etc. with celebs. Barefoot with his 5-9 wife are pretty much the best proof.
Kyuss101 said on 17/Jun/18
Totally impossible to say. Pictures with Seagal and he looks legit 6-0. Then pictures with Cruise and he looks 5-8 in shoes. The guy is a magician
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Jun/18
He's still at least a solid 5'8", maybe 5'8.5". Clearly taller than Canelo Alvarez: Click Here Click Here I'd guess Canelo at about 5'7.5".

I have to question Sly casting short as well unless Brad means extras because a lot of Sly's co-stars have easily cleared the 6' mark.
Robby Harris said on 16/Jun/18
It's possible Sly was never over 5'8.5" in his prime. He was CLEARLY shorter than his 5'9" wife in full body pics years back, even with better posture and at times, a slight footwear advantage.

He generally does look like he was closer to 5'9", admittedly, but I'd say 5'8.5" is closer to the truth. Mr. T had at least 2" on him, and I'm not certain T was ever taller than his 5'10.5" listing. The King of lifts has certainly never been over 5'9", but luckily still has his classic impressive physique and has maintained a good cm more height than most men do by their early 70s! His robot-like posture is a plus!

5'7" peak is still an absolute joke to me, and 5'8", though more reasonable, seems a little low, considering he could comfortably look OVER 5'11" in lifts back in the day. He's even oddly looked a decent six footer on occasion.... Five nine max though!
HonestSlovene said on 16/Jun/18
He was a strong 5'8"/weak 5'9" peak that reached 5'11" in lifts. Now he's 5'8" flat.
Bradley said on 13/Jun/18
Stern has used the Big Bird line for years, never heard the pelican line. G looks like Jon Lovitz. MJ is a strong 6-5 today and back in the day. 6-2 is purrfect Batman. Sly is still a weak 5-8...his brother is the real fibber, I mean fibbah (NYC accent).
Canson said on 12/Jun/18
@Christian: my 6’6 and 6’7” friends would take your height over theirs. Even my friend your size doesn’t hate his but just said he’d rather be 6’4 over 6’5 while the others actually hate theirs. Your height isn’t bad really. I’d say if I were to be any taller I wouldn’t want to be over 6’5” tho. Perfect for me would be 6’4” flat or 6’3 7/8 at a low. About a cm less than I am now as that would keep me at or under a flat 6’5” in shoes
Canson said on 12/Jun/18
@Bradley: I can believe MJ being a weak 6’5” peak. But that would correlate to 6’5.25 out of bed and 6’4.5 at a low at least in my opinion based on how he looks, how he measured, and how most people describe him that have met him 6’4/6’5. Reggie miller also said that about him as did George Gervin. Gervin was actually at most 6’7” barefoot and in the video that’s easily 2-3” difference. I mean it is always possible MJ grew but it’s also possible that he had a footwear advantage on you if you are actually a full 6’6” at a normal low and not earlier in the day. Any of the factors mentioned play a part. Say you’re only 6’5.75 at a low instead of 6’6” that could make the difference there as it would be 1.25”

6' 2" is a perfect height. MJ is a strong 6' 5" peak, had him by an inch 30+ years ago. He appears 6' 6" cause he is erect in public and heeled. Stern refers to himself as Jewish Big Bird. Funny stuff.

ikr? He's commented that he looks like a Pelican in wig! :D
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 11/Jun/18
@Canson

My dream height when I was a child was to grow to 6'3", but I don't hate my height or anything like that. I'm completely fine being 6'5" and a fraction, although 6'3" would be most ideal IMO.

5’8” today prob

@Brad: walking on a downward slope won’t necessarily make you lose height. It’ll appear that way maybe. But It’s harder when you’re that tall to slouch. If it makes you feel better, I have a 6’5, 6’6”, and 6’7” friends who are in the same boat. Two of the three hate it and the 6’5 says he wishes he were my height. Then a guy in the 6’5.5-.75 range (weak 6’6) barefoot that is my ex teammate that claims 6’7”. The 6’6” friend slouches noticeably unless we are all together. Even then it’s still a bit. But the 6’7” has proclaimed that he hates his height and he has almost as good a posture as I have. Mine is perfect given back issues I have and have broad shoulders. However with my 6’6 and 6’5 friend both slouch some. The 6’5 doesn’t mind his height as much but he has said before that he wishes he were my height and the other two wish they were 6’3”
Like another buddy that hangs with us. I used to want to be 6’6” when I was growing up because I wanted what I perceived to be MJ’s height when I played ball. Low and behold he’s really 6’4 and change like me and marginally taller like 1/4” prob. I’m 6’4.25 at a low and 6’5-6’5 1/8 out of bed and if I had to choose today between 6’6 and 6’2 I would take 6’2 all day. But I’d take 6’4 over 6’2 as it to me is good. Ideal for me would be to lose the change and just be solid 6’4” or maybe 6’3 7/8 at a low but since we’re talking about a cm I’m good with it as is
Canson said on 10/Jun/18

@Rising: LOL! Wow! I lost respect for Imus years back actually with the comments he made.

I agree on Someone like Stern too. It’s hard to build a body up at 6’4 and a wee bit let alone the 6’5 Stern is.
Bradley said on 8/Jun/18
I was going to respond to Braley but it was me without the D. Wish I could be Brad again. I walk on the downward slope of sidewalks, sometimes in the street to lose height, it STINKS being so tall, ask Stern.
Bradley said on 6/Jun/18
That irish bar at 30 Rock was where I saw him, O'Hurleys or something like that, I think Bruce Willis bartended there. I like how Soupy Sales left the studio a mess for Stern. Cousin Brucie at WABC was, still is (on Serius), a class guy. Stern hates being noticed.
Braley said on 6/Jun/18
Stern hates being so tall, he slouches on purpose as he has said numerous times. Sly does everything to be taller...casting is the key.
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Jun/18
@Canson: That's what I've said for years as well. You wouldn't want to look lanky and awkward, but good proportions and an impressive build can make 6'5"-6'6" fine. A slouch at that height will also be more noticeable so you're better off standing tall. That can make an enormous difference in how you're perceived.

As for Don Imus, my uncle was a lawyer at NBC back then and everyone had an Imus horror story. I know on one occasion, Imus was drunk as usual and was angry about something(I believe his contract or something similar) and protested by opening the door and urinating into the hallway. It's kind of funny to me how millions are invested in these loose cannons and it's assumed they won't go off the rails, whether Imus, Roseanne or anyone else.
Canson said on 4/Jun/18
@Bradley: Stern slouches at 6’5” and hates it. But it’s all about the body type and how you make it look. If you’re that tall you would need to build your body up that much more
Bradley said on 1/Jun/18
Anybody can get a Beyoncé wig and look fine, that lady had a horrible doo.I don't own a TV so I can't watch anything. Imus was a drunk for years, I saw him face down at Times Square Irish watering holes decades ago.W-nnnnnn bee ceee. 6' 2" is great, 6-6 is horrible....even Howud Stern does the slouch. 5' 8" looking like Don Johnson 1987 would be okay with me.
Canson said on 31/May/18
@Bradley: I can see 6’6” being a burden but if I had to choose between that and 5’6” it’s much better. But yea 6’2” it would be if it were that vs 6’6”
MJKoP said on 31/May/18
Bradley said on 21/May/18
Beyoncé has beautiful flowing hair much like a Vogue model....you have to kidding me with that hair...grab a wig.

What are you, Don Imus?

Beyoncé is worth hundreds of millions of dollars and can afford the most expensive wigs, extensions, and perms.

Sorry to hear about the cancellation of Roseanne, btw.
Bradley said on 29/May/18
Probably 6-6, I haven't measured in years. It sucks. I want to be 6-1, maybe 6-2...anything over is a Snoopy crying soundbite.
Rising - 174 cm said on 26/May/18
@Sean95: True, he was still shredded in a photo I saw last year. Sly admitted to using Testosterone and HGH over a decade ago so it's no mystery and still impressive. A lot more men are doing this as they reach middle age and beyond and it can greatly increase one's quality of life so why not? Arnold's size was always going to be tougher to maintain as he aged while Sly has generally only been in the 165-180 range, though Arnold's arms are impressive for his age.
Rising - 174 cm said on 25/May/18
Yeah, you can see his shoes in the photos: Click Here

Even if you couldn't, the fact Rob has a picture above of a 68 year old Sly back to back still looking shorter than a 64 year old Frank would tell us the only way a 70 year old Sly could pull off as tall or taller than a 66 year old Frank. I doubt Frank was still 5'10.5" by the time of either premiere, though. Back in the 80's when both brothers wore cowboy-type boots, Frank was more than an inch taller than Sly. I'd guess Frank is more of a weak 5'10" guy at best in recent years, around 177 cm.

And 6'1" sounds good to me, but I wouldn't particularly want to be as tall as 6'6" unless I was an NBA player. Depends on how you're built, though. A Clint Walker 6'6" would be cool.
Sean95 said on 24/May/18
Compared to Arnold Schwarzenegger today Sly's physique is amazing for his age and he hasn't lost much height at all despite weight lifting! Although he's probably on steroids
Robby Harris said on 24/May/18
@Bradley: How tall are you really? I recall you mentioning 6'5", 6'6" and 6'7" on different occasions...if your of a thin-lanky sort of build I can understand it, however a muscular/toned frame can look great at heights between, say, 6'2"-6'6" imo.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 24/May/18
@Bradley

How tall are you really though?
Bradley said on 22/May/18
I hate being tall. I wish I was 6 feet 1 which is not "gee yer tall" stuff. If Sly is rockin' past brother Franky then he's back to the big slope and heel.

Rising - 174 cm said on 21/May/18
Sly wore Converse in some training scenes for the early Rocky films. I'm somewhat surprised because it's a particularly thin shoe, but not entirely because I've seen him wear flat dress shoes with barely any heels adding maybe 0.8" to some events the past few years, but after seeing him wearing lifts again to promote GUardians of the Galaxy 2 and looking taller than brother Frank and noticeably taller than Michael Rooker, I'm somewhat surprised he's gone with such a variation. 0.6" Converse will make him about 2" shorter than he was in the footwear he wore to the Guardians' premiere. All that said, he still always looks upwards of 5'8" to me and was still looking as tall as Jason Statham and around 5'8.5" with Carl Weathers within the last year or two. He'll probably wear lifts at least occasionally when the next Rambo film comes out in 2019. On a different note, I recently rewatched Nighthawks(one of Sly's better movies) and was surprised Sly looked close in height to Billy Dee Williams for maybe the first half of the film, but then looked at least 1"-1.5" shorter in the later scenes. Both wore heeled boots, as did Rutger Hauer at times, but it's far more likely Sly would get the advantage than anyone else as their footwear changed in different scenes, but at least one pair of heeled boots reminded me of how Sly looked in the scenes he wore heeled boots in Rocky 3. Even when he looked close to Billy Dee's height, Billy Dee seemed to have a longer frame and not stand quite as straight as Sly did, or at least that's the impression I got.

I would guess more a weak 5'9" prime rather than a strong one simply because you can see Sly look that occasionally and the taller appearances can more easily be explained by a guy who wants to look taller having a tendency to look taller than he is. On the other hand, he really does still look at least like a strong 5'8" guy to me, possibly 5'8.5" and while I'd guess he's shrunk less than most men his age, I'd think he's lost at least a half inch so if he was 5'8.75" then it'd be tough to guess him over 5'8.25" today and same goes for 5'9" or 5'8.5" peak. But I'd also bet he's lost less than an inch in height. Rob has met actors older than Sly who had shrunk less than an inch without being in anywhere near the shape Sly is still in or maintaining as good posture.

Rob, I think Stallone still deserves two new categories. He is Italian, so you should give him the categories of "Italian actors". In addition, you should also add he to the category "Martial artist".

Sly's thrown in the white towel on his height...all tape measures banned from his house, lifts retired, elevators donated to museums.
Gonzalo said on 9/May/18
I saw him up close back in 2008 and he was two inches taller than me and I am 1`74. I have no idea of what he had in his shoes but he was 1`78-79 that day.

Sly is wearing lifts casually and daily.

Sly just posted a video on instagram. He's in flat running shoes, à la Rocky, and he looks 176 cm IMO. I'm tired of people downgrading his height here just for the pleasure of it. I'm not saying that hé is 176 cm in reality. I don't know but he doesnt look like a 5.8 Guy either. He manager all trough the years to still healthy and strong. He took HGH. All of these have helped him to keep his 5.9 +/- height IMO.

Tip toe Sly with double S. The other double S needed to. Pitt is a strong 5-10. Custom boot-man. Bat-Man Clooney is not really a boot guy cept on the old cycles.
MJKoP said on 21/Apr/18
No, not less than 5'9" peak. Visitors here would take freeze frames from that Sharon Stone scene as "proof" of Sly being barely 5'8" or less, since he was "obviously" shorter in the shower. Watch the whole scene...when bending down and leaning forward during a passionate make-out session, OF COURSE he could look shorter than a woman he's likely only a inch taller than naturally if you select the right 1/24th of second as reference.

Similar to the unclothed shots of Pitt and Paltrow that some guys here love cite as "more proof" that Pitt's under 5'10"....you really think he's standing at his straightest??
Bradly said on 17/Apr/18
You can count on Sly NOT to be shorter with Stone on camera. He was probably in full tip-toe. Moonlighting should have called "Bare-footin'" with Willis.
Nolifts81 said on 14/Apr/18
Shower scene with Sharon Stone . He was clearly 1.25 inch taller than her .Sharon is 5'8" .Sly should be a hair over 5'9". That's Why i think at 176cm prime.Now he can be 173cm.
Stephano187cm said on 13/Apr/18
he was 5'9 more 175 . No more a good posture since his prime and perfect posture also heel user that's why some few say he was 176
viper said on 12/Apr/18
Sorry Brad, he was never taller than 5-7 range. Even Mamun saw him at 5-7-5-8.
Bradly said on 12/Apr/18
I've always considered the training footage of Sly and Weathers important to his peak height of 5 foot 8 and a half. He was in standard boxing footwear. The footage on film he's in ramped up customs with camera fooling. He is falling over in Rambo boots with wedge and heel Madonna uses.
AAAA said on 11/Apr/18
Old school footage of him and weathers doing choreography for the first rocky. They were both in boxing shoes here, so virtually no heel height. The diff looks almost identical to that award show they were at a year or 2 ago (I'm getting older so it may be 4-5 and it only seems like a year). Award photo is 2nd link, video is 1st link.

Oh, please...anything less than a strong 5'9" peak is out of the question. Just because he's not the 5'10.75" he claimed or the 5'11 a one-lettered dude claimed for him, it doesn't mean he was legit short(5'7" range) during his prime.

Today he is 5'8.25 but he is still wearing lifts in the shoes. Just look at his shoes in his last video on his official Instagram account. At last one inch inside the shoe.
burby said on 7/Apr/18
5'8.5" peak, 5'7.5" when he hits 75.
Bradly said on 6/Apr/18
5-7 peak...even I agree with da G that is laughing gas. Telly and Sly cancel out with custom Munsters for Telly in '75 and ramped boots for the sly Sly.
viper said on 5/Apr/18
5-7-5-7.5 peak. Look at the Columbo episode with 5-10-5-10.5 Telly Savales. He's got 3 inches on him
MJKoP said on 2/Apr/18
And at 75(if he reaches that age), he'll still have friends vowing that he can look 5'9" or 5'10" in person. :P

Hey Rob, do you think G will start claiming Five seven by the time he'll be 65 or 70. At what age do you think he'll drop under five six?
Editor Rob
I'd be surprised if he deviated, in fact I'm sure he already has his gravestone etched 'Always and Forever 5 foot 8'.

As for Sly...I wonder what future generations will make of him. Can you imagine somebody in 2100 going back into archives and reading pages upon pages of comments about his height.
Bradly said on 30/Mar/18
Sure wish the Viper was here 10 years ago getting barked at by the G. Off by an inch. He was 5' 8.5" peak. 5-11 flat in custom lifts back in '76.Rambo boots ramped he might have edged a bit more.
viper said on 29/Mar/18
5-10 in lifts, 5-7.5 barefoot in the 70s
jtm said on 29/Mar/18
f it’s true (which I have no reason to doubt) - how do we know she wasn’t just referring to a quarter inch difference between herself and Sly? 174 cm is the lowest i’m willing to accept as a possibility, certainly no less - though 175-176 cm generally seems closer imo.

she wouldn't be so sure she was taller if it was just a quarter inch difference.
Mr. FiveEight said on 29/Mar/18
@viper: 5'7.5" is literally impossible for a peak Sly. If that were the case he’d need a pair of FOUR inch lifts inside his footwear to be able pull off a strong 5'11"! He was clearly at least an inch taller than De Niro a few years ago in liftless-looking footwear, taller than Chan throughout the years, could easily look to have a good 2" on Sugar Ray (with stacked footwear), I could go on and on...

Absolute most I can buy him at peak is 5-7.5
Mr. FiveEight said on 27/Mar/18
It’s very difficult for me to picture Sly being much less than 5'9" in his prime...even 5'8.5" seems a little low, though maybe not exactly impossible - at the extreme low guess. One thing is for sure though - and that is Sly was never a flat 5'8" (or below) at his peak!

I’d like to see this article that Mr. R brought up (not saying he was making it up, ‘cos he was easily one of the most reliable contributors on the site). If it’s true (which I have no reason to doubt) - how do we know she wasn’t just referring to a quarter inch difference between herself and Sly? 174 cm is the lowest i’m willing to accept as a possibility, certainly no less - though 175-176 cm generally seems closer imo.

Also, there was a story that ran in Parade Magazine, where Stallone's own sister commented on his lack of height, and she laughed off his claims to be 5'10". She stated that she was 5'9" in her stocking feet, and Sly was clearly shorter than her.

another evidence he wasn't 5'9 or taller.

176 cm is arguable for a peak Sly, but I’d still say 175 cm is more likely. Anything below 5'8.5" for him in the 70s-80s is taking the pi$$ IMO. However as far as today, it’s hard to tell whether he’s dipped to just a flat 5'8" or a little over as listed....it’s not a big deal though, especially considering that quarter inches are not the easiest thing to detect (especially with an enigmatic lift-wearer...though he doesn’t wear lifts anywhere near as often as he used to back in the day!)

He looks really tall next to Franco colombu(Arnold's training partner) who is 5'5. Like 5 inches taller..and not so towered by Arnold.
Gracian said on 14/Mar/18
Rob, who do you think, who in his youth had the best chance to achieve a strong range of 5'9"(5'9.25")? Sylvester Stallone, Jean Claude Van Damme, Michael Keaton or Ian McDiarmid? Personally, I'd give Van Damme the best chance, and in Stallone's case I think it's the most debatable... What's your opinion Rob?
Editor Rob
I can see how 5ft 9.25 estimates for all these men might be possible...it would be interesting to go back in time and measure each of them, I suppose the odds are that some of them could have been a little over 5ft 9, maybe a greater chance than falling a 1/4 inch under it.
James B 170.8cm said on 13/Mar/18
Rob probably weighing near 196 pounds is one reason why he has lost a bit of height?

That figure of 176 was always arguable for him. His shoe issue always threw spanners in the works.

I think hes 5-8-1/2. I met Mr T in London twice and stood pretty much next to him near the London eye,hes 5-10" imo. Sly looked around 2" shorter approx. In lifts he will pass as a 5-10-11" guy defo.
The Shredder said on 2/Mar/18
I have never ruled out a little over 5'9 peak , but it was the very most he'd be , Mr.T and Weathers destroyed his 5'10 + claims but on the other hand he was tall enough to reach looking minimum 5'11. So " around " 5'9 minimum in any case.
M58 said on 26/Feb/18
Sly looked no less than a flat 5'9" with legitimate 5'10" Mike Tyson in normal looking footwear back in 2011, and there’s plenty more occasions he looked no less than 5'9" in the last couple decades (sans lifts). But I don’t rule out a weaker 5'9" or even 5'8.5" at the lowest for his prime, but even at 174 cm - he would have probably woken up at more 176 cm...the average daily height loss is about 3/4". He could look 174 cm at times though I must admit...but generally speaking, he did seem near enough what Rob has him listed at most of the time.

I don’t see how Sly can be anything below 5'8" today, as he can still pull off looking over it in normal footwear. As for his peak, anywhere from 5'8.5"-5'9" is possible imo, in fact i’d say Rob’s listings are as close to reality as one can get, but I can understand the 5'9.25" estimates too (as far as peak). Sly hasn’t lost much height for his age, half inch or so is pretty good for a 70+ guy. Sly is living proof that being in good shape is certain to pay off in later life!

He was likely 177 cm range out of bed in his prime, which arguably makes his 5'10" claim from 1991 pretty reasonable. He should stop wearing lifts as everyone knows he’s not as tall as he tries to make himself appear though! But then again, he doesn’t really give me the impression of being overly insecure about his height, or having any sort of obvious napoleon complex, given he’s made jokes about his height in the past...so maybe he just enjoys fooling people who maybe aren’t aware of his real height!?

I've been on this site since 2004 and there have been many pics of Sly's 5'9" wife in sandals and poor posture taller than Sly in dress shoes and military posture and these pics are a good dozen years old. So even back then, Sly was nowhere near your 5'10" out of bed. He's NEVER been any taller than maybe a flat 5'9" out of bed and 5'8.5" during the day in his YOUTH.

No way is that guy 5'8". He was probably measured 5'7" and change WITH shoes in his younger days, so 5'6" barefoot and maybe 5'5" today and might be wearing sandals/flip flops considering he has on shorts and Sly is wearing his 3" monsters heels/insoles. When you're worth $400 million you can afford the best type of shoe lifts out there. Just ask Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise all about it.

And it’s amazing some posters on here can still think an apparent 5'7" guy can pull off looking a strong 5'11" in lifts. Give it up already! You think he hid 4 inch lifts inside passably-normal-looking footwear!? Sly was never 5'7" in his prime, or even today for that matter. If you still think so, provide a convincing explanation as to how on earth he pulled off looking at least 4 inches taller on a number of occasions in his heyday.

Telly was 5'10"-5'11" range and wore boots with at least 2" heels and was rumored to have lifts inside to make him look his billed height of 6'1" so a young Sly at 5'8.5"-5'9" should have looked considerably shorter and there was never a shot in that episode which showed us the exact difference. Sly didn't look 5'7"-5'8" with Dolph either. According to Dolph, he stood on a box to tower Sly even more than he already did, but Sly always measured up much better to Dolph than Dolph's co-star in Dark Angel/I Come in Peace Brian Benben, who was 5'6" and over a head shorter than Dolph. Sly came up more around Dolph's nose.
Jug said on 31/Jan/18
Closer to 5'7 for a peak. Was considerably shorter than Telly Savalas on an episode of Kojak. Looked 5'7, possibly 5'8, next to 6'4/6'5 Dolph Lundgren.

Five-nine peak easy. No arguments against Rob’s listings.
Rising - 174 cm said on 25/Jan/18
I watched Oscar recently and Sly is noticeably taller(at least a couple inches) than 5'7"-5'8" range guys like Peter Riegert and Tim Curry, but he looks to me like he's near 5" shorter than Chazz Palminteri as he seems to not reach much higher than Palminteri's eyes. He's the same height in the film as an 80+ year old Don Ameche and however tall Vincent Spano is, Sly winds up looking about 2" shorter. Don't know about his shoes, they look like they could have lifts, but he is actually seen wearing slippers earlier in the film, though I'm not sure there's a wide shot you can accurately see his height in them. Still a strong 5'8" based on how he looked with Carl Weathers at the Golden Globes a year ago as Carl only looked about 4" taller to me and Carl is no less than 6'0.5" even today.

And MJKoP, I don't know why you inferred that I believed Spacey personally divulged his sexual proclivities to Glenn. I didn't know whether it was accurate or not at the time(I long figured Spacey was gay and really couldn't care less about that with voluntary adults) but had figured Glenn either heard it from a bodyguard, security etc. or someone else in his own profession he knew who saw Spacey regularly with those "young surfer types."

As for Glenn with Sly's height, in fairness, he was relatively consistent in believing Sly was somewhere in the 5'10" range(until Sly's inexplicable growth spurt to 5'11" in his 70's, which even Sly is unaware of) and I do think he honestly believed it as if he were just trying to pass himself off as taller, he could have easily just said Sly was wearing lifts in the photos and who would have doubted him? Same thing with estimating Bruce Willis at a 6'1" height virtually nobody believed despite having no picture with Bruce. However, I do think it's probable Glenn subconsciously or semi-consciously convinced himself some celebs were taller in an effort to allay his own doubts about his height even prior to the measurement. I don't believe he'd have lashed out as extremely at innocuous questions if he were completely certain, but his actions wouldn't have made sense if he knew he was that far from his claimed height and consciously deceiving people. I'm sure when someone like Gary Sinise tells him he himself is 5'8" and looks at Glenn funny when Glenn claims he looks taller because he [Glenn] himself is 5'8" would for anyone else have caused them to at least consider they were shorter than they believed, but for Glenn the logical or convenient conclusion to draw from this was that Sinise didn't know his own height. If Glenn can still seemingly convince himself he's 5'8" or at least have no qualms telling it to people aware of his measurement then convincing himself he were 5'8" before the measurement would be a piece of cake. Especially since Glenn had some wildly unscientific ideas about height. For instance, Sly's unexplained ability to go from looking from 5'7" to 6'2" (in Glenn's judgement) despite the fact that Sly's good posture would leave shoes and ground level as the only real variables. These variations were not uncommon to Glenn. He not only believed Mel Gibson could look 5'7"-5'8", he believed Gibson WAS 5'7"-5'8" due to premiere photos despite having met Mel by this point. Now he believes Mel is 5'11" despite only claiming 5'10", much like Sly, Colin Farrell and others.

Of course he saw it - but as you've hypothesized in the past, he simply purged the memory as it was too painful to accept. If you hooked him up to a polygraph and asked him his height, there'd be no indicators of deception as he answered "Five Foot Eight".
MJKoP said on 13/Jan/18
Yeah, if Rob were still "friends" with Glenn like I am, it would have to be from a dummy account where he'd block out his alter-identity. The incorrect font was really only secondary.

No, I *did* indeed mean the actual ones of the stadiometer measurements, showing his precise actual height(or at least according to everyone except him and these friends we keep hearing about). There would really be no need to manipulate the two of you standing next to each other, due to the posed one of G the (G)iant.

And I'm sure your CH admin database snapshots contain plenty of great stuff to behold. I remember when he said "anything is possible. even Stallone at 5-7".

Of course Sly "grew" to five eleven when the (G)reat contributor's stories began to crumble. If Sly had refused G's photo-op requests and possibly even turned down a John Hancock, do you seriously think he'd still be seen a full quarter inch above even his own highest claim? Hehe...
Editor Rob
Bizarre, since he saw the measurements himself.

There is in my posession one photo of Glenn measuring 5ft 8 (Yes, unlike Bigfoot, this exists). Of course it is an 'in sneakers' shot...If I put that up again, someone will email it to him and he might start believing he measured 5ft 8 in socks...😵😼

He didn't HAVE a computer and his entries were/are from his phone(Blackberry back then)...interestingly enough, he thought YOU had 'shopped the stadiometer pics of him at slightly over and under 5'7". I'm kicking myself for not offering to doctor those pics back to the "correct" height for him, to see what he would've said. He probably would've posted them and tried to pass them off as the originals. LOL
Editor Rob
Photoshopped the stadiometer snapshot or the ones of him standing with me? I'm sure he's still got the one I suggested he keep - the one of him on tip-toes, looking the happiest he's ever been :)

If he still wants a photo of him measuring just slightly under 5ft 7 on the Seca, someone send him This one and the one taken 15 minutes before at which he managed 2mm taller, Click Here. Might help remind him of what 5ft 8 looks like 😈 🤗

And to shift back to the topic of Stallone I think this tidbit from our old friend is worth mentioning:

"BUT I did stand near him for
a bit and examined him like a scientist would,like I
always do.5-9 tops this time.maybe
smaller.however,like I said its tricky"


So, even admitted Height Scientist, Glenn Cunningham B.S, at one stage thought Sly looked 5ft 9 or possibly smaller! 😳

Editor Rob: 😱 😉 when hell freezes over!

G's been nice enough to provide us with his resume on his IG(handle: magickal_warlock - I kid you not!)

Aries.Entertainment Industry.Musicologist.Cryptozoologist.Metal.NewWave.Goth.Prog.Psych.Industrial.Cats.Horror.Astrology.Paranormal.Occultist.Magick.Professional Height Guesser.Five.Foot.F**king.EIGHT!!!!

Okay, the last two descriptors were added by yours truly, but I think this might be jumping the shark even for him!

Side note: When you add a letter 'k' to the word "magic", it suddenly becomes more mystic yet paradoxically somehow more believable as a made-up word. I would say his story is tragick.
Editor Rob: I think I will give him some major props...I just seen his admission Click Here.
Well done G!
Not so good for Sly though, he liked being a few inches taller than our old friend, it helped his 5ft 10 and a half claim.
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Jan/18
This is a fair downgrade as I think he must be somewhere from 5'8" minimum to 5'8.5" max, but he doesn't look like he's shrunk much more since around 2014-2015ish, imo. You can see he's still taller next to Mel Gibson than Mark Wahlberg is. Btw, I watched F.I.S.T. for the first time in years a while back and Sly pulls off taller than I remembered in it. If Peter Boyle was 6'2" and Kevin Conway 5'6" then Sly pulled off between 5'10"-5'11" with them at times. Of course, I think Conway is right that Sly was about 5'9" and wore lifts constantly. But if Sly is 5'8.25" now then Statham definitely needs a quarter inch downgrade as Statham does not look taller even with comparable footwear. I'd still say 175 cm peak and 174 now until I see something definitive to change my mind, but I've said for a while there's about a 50/50 chance of 5'8.75" peak and 5'8.25" now, especially since 174.5 would be right between the range Brigitte gave for Sly.

I would bet every dime I have that G posted (or perhaps even still occasionally posts) on here under different aliases. But there's no way he STILL claims 5'8" is there?...if he currently still believes he's that height, then I'd have to say he's most likely just trolling. If not that, then he'd have to be incredibly nuts!
Editor Rob: He's had a celebheights mindwipe 😁 Will be claiming 5ft 8 till the grave.

I'm sure he's just having a joke back at us 👋



You really think he knows the truth? I mean, for most people, having yourself measured on a stadiometer at whatever height despite insisting for years that you were almost 1.5 inches higher might be a bit disappointing, but they'd at least acknowledge the reality of it and move on....Glenn is not "most people". The stuff regarding him which I've alluded to in the past such as what he believed in and followed on his social networking profiles as well as some very specific things he confided to me privately made me seriously question his sanity and level of stability - and I'm honestly not saying that as a put down or dig at the dude, in fact quite the opposite. Certain afflictions(and again, I don't want to divulge personal info) are *not* excuses for bad behaviors, but they definitely should give an amount of compassion and sympathy for those who are suffering....despite them having hurt others who were undeserving. And those things can surely help explain why some people act so irrationally.

(Boba Fett said on 18/Dec/17 @Barry Fl That's a good point, most people assume Sly is significantly shorter than his 5'9" listing because of the lifts, doesn't help the perceived height for him.)

Yeah, I've definitely noticed this with a lot of people I've spoken to - and even I used to think he was about 5'6 or 5'7 until I started paying more attention. Not that I think he's much taller now, mind you - but I certainly wouldn't call him short. Maybe 5'9 or so in younger days, and an inch shorter now? But the guy's *appearance* of height is all over the place - he can look as tall as 6 footers on one day and then almost half a foot shorter the next! I have seen Sly in real life, but not really close enough to comfortably judge from that alone. I will say, he didn't look small though.

His fury was on me only. How many times: "Sly is 5' 8.5" and you at 9 P.M. after the 3 P.M. Bronx wake-up are 5' 6.5" in pictures". Is it true he says he is 5-8 in '17? I bet 222 and loaded down he might be 5-6 flat by 11 P.M.

You may have been the brunt of his hostility, but he'd habitually flip out on random guests at the drop of a hat(myself included). This unbecoming behavior actually repelled many visitors, despite his repeated cries of "this site iz literally nothing without ME!!!!!!" My first interaction with him ever was when I questioned the veracity of someone claiming to be Billie Joe Armstrong, on the respective page(and with only one post under that name!), and G immediately falling for it and replying as though he were talking to the man....I was promptly treated to insults and swear words. LOL, I guess I was somewhat naive back then to still befriend him despite of all the blatant warning signs, but fortunately never anywhere near his level of ignorance. :D
Thereel said on 18/Dec/17
Hi Rob, It's been like 8-9 years G has been gone, I wonder how do you look back on those years and did you end your partnership because he lied about his height or because of his bad temper or both.
Editor Rob: Lying to visitors about a crucial factor like height, and then being unable to accept the truth of being no taller than 5ft 7 was a pretty major issue.

There were some other issues as well, which had made me realise this was never going to work long-term.

Maybe he and I both learned some lessons from that era!

You need to be mentally fit to be able to run a website like this for over 13 years....I'm not sure I'd have been if Big G was still around...

Harris said on 9/Dec/17
Another thing people need to remember is: Sly doesn't always wear lifts. Yes, he's slowed down on them more now, but even say 15-20 years ago its not like you couldn't find a shot of him without built-up shoes! He's always pulled off looking near 5'9" in normal footwear back in his heyday and even up to just a few years ago. Now as for Sly in lifts? He obviously could pull off looking at least 5'11" or more, depending on how big of a lift he's wearing and the thickness of his shoe/heel. Rob's listing are the most fair and reasonable estimates imo. 5'7" is a joke, and I'm not even going to go on about 5'6"!
Heightlover said on 9/Dec/17

Sly's done himself no favours. All his attempting to be taller than he is has given the public perception that he's actually shorter than he is. Most people I speak to say 'oh yeah, he's a little short guy isn't he? About 5'6 or 5'7?'.

@Rising=Compare some height of people when you doesn't know exactly the real advantage of shoes(a little hard with some woman shoes and sometimes man elevator shoes) and the real height to the centimeter of the others cannot be very precise .
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Nov/17
@James: I was barely joking. I really did it assume "young" meant 20ish and thought nothing more of it. But if someone like Glenn had heard that much, which turned out to be accurate then it only confirms further in my mind that quite a few in Hollywood had a good idea of what Spacey was up to. As for Sly, I think he'd probably look better now if he hadn't gotten much or any surgery as nobody really cares if he has wrinkles for his roles as long as he stays in shape. I wouldn't go as far as unrecognizable either, though as Real Anonymous pointed out a while back, the Growth Hormone did seem to make his nose bigger and aside from being unusually lean and shredded at his age, the Testosterone Sly has admitted to taking(and personally, I'd bet other anabolics over the years) decrease collagen synthesis so it does lead to extreme vascularity. As for the hair, I'll have to agree with Real Anonymous again and say Sly probably got a hair transplant and used a rug in the meantime. Now a side effect Sly didn't get is "growth hormone gut."

But overall, I think he's done outstanding staying in shape and minimizing height loss.

Incidentally, I remember Glenn telling me about ten years ago that Spacey liked "young, surfer types." I didn't think much of it because I always figured Spcey was gay and didn't know just how young that meant!


He was almost certainly just regurgitating what he learned from a 2nd, or even 3rd hand source. Heck, anyone with Internet access since the mid-90s "knew" the truths about Cosby, Ailes, Weinstein, et al....but they were nothing more than dormant rumors for decades. If you think Spacey divulged his now-revealed sexual affinities to paparazzi hound #38749789340609234 during the 5 to 10 seconds taken to pose for the 583rd duo shot of that hour, then you're sadly mistaken. :)
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Nov/17
@Pierre: I'm talking about when there's someone there to compare her to. It's too subjective to say how tall her proportions look by herself. You will see one thing and I will see another. It's not going to settle anything, but next to other celebs, including Carl Weathers on video about a year ago nd Kelly Preston and Trvolta back in the 90's, she can look around the 6' mark in heels, imo.
Pierre said on 22/Nov/17
Click Here = here she doesn't bend her knee but...
Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Nov/17
@Pierre: I disagree. I can't really see her much less, especially the few comparisons I've seen of her with celebs who aren't Sly where she's not bending her knee.

I'd go more a hair under 5'9" than a hair over personally, but I think he held that weak 5'9" range through at least 2, maybe 3 Expendables films. So far no more corroboration on the allegations. Brigitte and the boy who played Sly's son in Over the Top have denied it. Obviously, it doesn't mean it couldn't have happened, but clearly, there's not enough to put Sly in the class of Spacey, Charlie Rose, Danny Masterson etc.

Incidentally, I remember Glenn telling me about ten years ago that Spacey liked "young, surfer types." I didn't think much of it because I always figured Spcey was gay and didn't know just how young that meant!

Rising - 174 cm said on 20/Nov/17
@Pierre: Actually, Jennifer was listed 5'9.5" as a model. In old newspapers, I saw her described 5'9.5" and 123 pounds in a '93 newspaper article and 5'9" in a 1995 one. I think one or both were NY Times, but I'm not sure. We won't be able to tell by proportions whether she's 5'8.5", 5'9" or 5'9.5". She's always looked taller proportionately to me than say Katie Holmes, but maybe Katie is 5'8.5". Anyway, i have posted comparisons of Jennifer with other celebs listed on this site and imo, 5'9" seems pretty fair. She looks tall in heels with 6'0"-6'0.25" Travolta who would probably be about 186 cm range in dress shoes: Click Here She towers Kelly Preston who is listed 5'5.5" here. But anyway, my main point in posting the barefoot photo is just to compare their legs to show Sly's legs aren't THAT short if they're not much shorter than a woman at least as tall as him.

@polo: Valid points. It is indeed ambiguous because even if she was being truthful, she didn't know herself if Sly threatened her or not and did say she consented to Sly. Apparently she wasn't into De Luca, but did she tell him no? I'll have to check that because I read a few reports when the story broke as different reports included different details, but if there's something there, we may get the facts. Like I said, unless more facts come out, I can't make a judgement about this. So far the boy who played Sly's son in Over the Top is denying it and so is Brigitte, but of course Sly would have the money to get people to cover him. Though this doesn't prove they're covering him either. You're right that this type of thing was not uncommon though so I'm not going to say it didn't happen either. Go read up on Jimmy Page of Zeppelin for instance. A lot of the 80's musicians had a thing for jail bait. I'm not saying it was right either, but the proof in attitudes changing is the fact this report was filed in 1986 and nobody bothered reporting it until what? Last year.
Brad said on 20/Nov/17
Zito was "hanging" not "bodyguarding" with Sly and Pam. Felons can't get a license or have firearms etc. The Vegas police report was made but the accuser didn't sign off on it. I'm sure she lawyered up and waved it in his face and asked for a lump sum to not sign it. The incident was reported in a Baltimore paper at that time. I'm sure he was honest with his wife at the time, ask Elvis in '71, he had 5 De Luca's. Maybe she had DNA too?

About allegations against Sly, i Think that some of the facts described by the girl herself are ambiguous. If something happened, I don't think it was a rape... More something stupid that "went wrong" because the girl was too young to handle this. I'm not saying this is nothing... I say it's complex. Even in a Trial it would not be a Black or White case.
This being said, during the 60's, 70's and 80's, Rock Bands and actors did this kind of thing with their fans. It was not a Scoop. It's became something strange more recently. And now, we rewrite History in 2017 and see things like that awfull. I'm not saying it's not. I'm saying that Times have changed a lot and fast.
Brad said on 19/Nov/17
Sly buys off his problems, common in Hollywood. De Luca was his "go to" guy for women.
Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Nov/17
I do agree Ford has probably dropped under 5'11" the last few years, but he has old man posture so who knows what he'd measure on a stadiometer. And Sly does have relatively short legs and a relatively long torso, but his legs aren't THAT short as evidenced by this barefoot pic from 2013 with his wife: Click Here Women on average have longer legs than men relative to their height and Jennifer like most 5-9ish models is pretty leggy so if Sly had unusually short legs, his legs would look shorter next to hers. I bet Sly's leg length isn't that different from mine(near 30" inseam). According to Sly and Franco Columbu, his waist was about 29"-29.5" at one point in the 80's. He was between 165-180 pounds at this time, though I believe his weight more 165 at the time his waist was this size. Though he didn't put on much, if any fat from Rambo 2 to 3 despite gaining 13-15 pounds.

Matt Damon seems to have shorter legs to me and a stockier build, though Damon has gotten stockier in his 30's and 40's than he was back in the 90's, while Sly was the opposite. Damon doesn't wear lifts like Sly does as far as I know, but would have the perfect proportions for some big lifts because even Sly with just relatively short legs could pass for a solid 5'11", sometimes with the illusion of being taller after he bulked up, especially when standing alone. Damon could probably do the same. Mel Gibson is similar at about 5'9" with short legs and can look a solid average when he wears cowboy boots. If you have longer legs, the illusion doesn't work so well and Vin Diesel is proof of this as with his trademark boots with a roughly 1" platform and 1.75" heels, he can often look like he's standing on something. Of course, Vin is above average height as well, which imo, makes lifts less natural looking than someone who is say 5'8"-5'10" range.

Hijopotamus said on 14/Nov/17
@slim184, I said “looks” short, not that he is short. Damon and Sly look short and other people their height look tall because of their type of body.
*+**********
Yeah pretty much 5’9” is below average/average in the West, but I was a 5’9”er last year and didn’t look short because I’m thin and short torso’d. Damon and sly have thick long waists and appear shorter due to that. PS, 185 isn’t average in France, 😂
Pierre said on 18/Nov/17
@Scoobidoo(comment 15 Nov 2017) =or there is another reason = Harrison is under 5"11' now.See eventually the pics i posted in Harrison's page
Rising - 174 cm said on 18/Nov/17
As for height, he still looks about 5'8.5" last I've seen in numerous comparisons and can pull off up to 2" taller even now when he wears lifts -- see him with Michael Rooker and brother Frank this year. Maybe 1/4" less at about 5'8.25", but he still looks every bit as tall as Statham in no more footwear. Watching Rocky Balboa again I noticed that despite Sly wearing lifts in his boxing shoes, he really didn't look short next to a tall man like Antonio Tarver. Imo, he looked too tall to not be around 5'9" or a minimum 5'8.5". I believe lifts in boxing shoes helped, but there's a limit.

As for the allegation, I'd wait for more details before condemning Sly. Imo, it's important to know if she still maintains this happened TODAY. It's also worth noting that the girl's own story was that she had consensual sex with Stallone, but nto his bodyguard Mike De Luca and as far as the threat, she initially thought it was a joke, but then changed her mind for some as of now, unknown reason. Was that her own paranoia and/or immaturity after the fact? That definitely needs more explanation because I would think if it were important enough for Sly to threaten her, he'd make it clear, although this too is conjecture on my part. But the reports so far suggest this is ambiguous. Then we're left with her age. To be sure, even though the age of consent is 16 in Nevada, it would not be Sly's finest moment if it was confirmed he had sex with a 16 year old, but it'd still be important to know if he knew she was 16 or had reason to believe she was around that age. I don't think anyone would deny that there have always been 16 year olds who can get served in bars and pass for much older and realistically, nobody proofs girls before having sex with them. So we need more details to know if we're talking about something more like Rob Lowe or something predatory, if anything happened at all. It's important to remember that in 1986, when this allegation was made, Sly was THE biggest movie star in the world coming off both the 2nd and 3rd biggest films in 1985 before signing a record $12 million per movie deal with Canon, which due to the wildly inflationary monetary policy since is the equivalent of $25-30 million today. Being that prominent makes you a target and it's nothing new. At least one of the allegations against Michael Jackson appeared false for instance. In Sly's case, the Vegas police didn't think there was enough evidence to move forward, which prove it's false, but also shows it is far from being proven true. Of course, I've condemned Hollywood as among the most immoral industries for years so while I'd be disappointed if I learned that included Stallone, it'd be naive to say I could have had any indication what a man I don't know personally has done when the cameras aren't around. Point being, I'm personally waiting for more facts. If he truly is like the worst of his peers then it's almost a certainty there will be more convincing evidence forthcoming. Unfortunately, De Luca is dead, which makes it more difficult to know exactly what happened and as of now, Sly's accuser is unnamed. Remember, there's a reason people have a right to face their accuser.

As for Mel Gibson, actually, I'd have expected him to be one of the first names out there because there's MANY who have wanted to take him down for a good 15-20 years now. We'll have to see, but I think it's premature to start saying anything about Mel, far more premature than even Stallone. To be sure, Mel has his issues, but I've yet to hear a real allegation of him being a sexual predator.

Get $immons to hype the growth pills. I wonder if Meal and Where Man pay G well to get scribbles.

Wasn't Zito still bodyguarding post conviction? Any celeb that hires him deserves Lovitz face.

And on the subject of cryptozoology, here's a nice little excerpt from wiki-


Paleontologist George Gaylord Simpson listed cryptozoology among the examples of human gullibility, along with creationism:

"Humans are the most inventive, deceptive, and gullible of all animals. Only those characteristics can explain the belief of some humans in creationism, in the arrival of UFO's with extraterrestrial beings, or in some aspects of cryptozoology. … In several respects the discussion and practice of cryptozoology sometimes, although not invariably, has demonstrated both deception and gullibility. An example seems to merit the old Latin saying 'I believe because it is incredible,' although Tertullian, its author, applied it in a way more applicable to the present day creationists.[17]"


Looking at George Simpson's own wiki page, I'd pay good money to watch G label that man as a "hack" while he effortlessly maintains a straight face. Is it really such a stretch(pun totally intended) that he thought he was 1.5 inches more than he actually was? 'My friends say I can look 5-9' is entirely believable compared to his other ideologies(in no small part due to the fact that he wore lifts and/or elevator boots, so if he had "friends" who were half as worthless at judging height as he was, then I'll happily buy that statement in a New York minute).

Editor Rob: I'm thinking of starting a line in Height Potions and will certainly need some Guinea Pigs. I'm certain our old friend G would be first in line to offer to test out my 'Bigfoot Vitality', 'YetiMax' and 'Captain Caveman' pills 💪

actually that reminds me Will Ferrell once mentioned he had a bully who he thought was going to shrink him by throwing 'shrinking powder' on him!

It worked for Alex Jones....I mean, scam-wise; though it'd be pretty hard to pawn a miracle-grow-esque pill when you're only a weak 5'9". Just hire a really tall pitchman, and you should be home free....perhaps user Brad, as he could attest to the celebheights brand. He'd probably do it as long as you bought advertising on cryptozoology*-related websites(as I'm sure G wouldn't be your own customer!).

*Just realized spellcheck doesn't even recognize "cryptozoology" as a real word.

And -
Ferrell: 7/16/67
G: 4/10/72

I guess it's possible, but perhaps G forgot to put gloves on his hands first! :D

Too many meals with Meal Chaskey in Canarsie. Stallone's slush fund for buy-outs on potential lawsuits was/is massive. The legendary dragging through the hotel kitchen tale was a 500G meal. He can't use Zito as one, hiring a federal felon is really ugly if one pops up. That spiked stuff Sly has used has kept his height at 5-8, must be cement in it.
MJKoP said on 17/Nov/17
LOL, I totally see Lovitz there...poor John! At a currently-listed 5'8.5", G can be his Mini-Me.

And @Rob: Well, at 80, Stallone may end up under 5'7" but G will be in his mid-late 50s, so he'll definitely have shrunk more by then, as well....especially since G is hardly the epitome of physical fitness. Perhaps forfeiting a few hundred deluxe cheese steaks annually could yield him enough dough to visit some mystical shaman in South America who could then increase his height...after all, it's all one hundred percent real - to hell with all those quack doctors and scientists. :D

I don't think Sly's doing himself any favours by putting out a statement that he's never even heard this accusation before. Even I heard it some years back. It's not exactly new.
MJKoP said on 16/Nov/17
Mel Gibson will be on that list in due time. Surprised he's not there yet... If G were famous, he'd already be on it for repeated instances of indecent exposure, self-confessed....check out the recently-unearthed gem on Ja Rule's page. And I see Stallone as still at least wee bit over 5'8" in 2017. Seems very height-conscientious.
Editor Rob: Stallone, if he lives to 80 might end up the same height as Glenn.

There are some techniques to reduce losses, starting with simple exercise and stretching routines. If you make it a habit, combined with a good diet you might manage to retain more height than if you fell into the trap of sedentary lifestyle and poor diet.
Brad said on 16/Nov/17
Yer right, Lovitz. Sly is still a weak 5-8.
MJKoP said on 16/Nov/17
Lol, you could totally make that original cropped picture I posted a "screamer"; advertising a clickbait video on Rob's YouTube titled something along the lines of "EXCLUSIVE: Rob meets AND measures Justin Bieber". The video would start with Rob talking to the camera as though he's about to introduce the 'Biebs, or at least setting up a pretense for footage of their encounter....then suddenly, out of nowhere that face unexpectedly appears with a Bronx accent V/O saying "Five-foot-eight...who ya met, ya postman?" April Fools 2018, anyone?? :D
Editor Rob: you know, speaking of creepy guys, I see Stallone is on the long list now!

as for his height, physically I think his legs seem to be going and he might be looking for knee replacements in 5 years.
burby said on 15/Nov/17
Mr. Lovitz looks quite angry/serious. 5'6" or 5'7" for Sly is silly talk.
MJKoP said on 15/Nov/17
The demonic gaze being made public is worth the reward of appearing taller than "5-9" JC. :P
Brad said on 15/Nov/17
Big guns with Harrison, rampers. G looks like Gene Simmons now. He must be in a crystal ball...."you must believe me...5 foot eiiighhttttt". Curtis Sliwa needs to make him an Angel since he rides the lines so much.
MJKoP said on 15/Nov/17
I apologize, Rob...here's a more "G" rated version(with special guest star, Jackie Chan!):

Editor Rob: he had a far better shot with Sly to be fair than with Chan, even though on the street, still Sly was lucky G didn't knock him out like he insinuated! Could have been a real rumble in the bronx.
Scoobydoo said on 15/Nov/17
hey guys! If Sly never was taller than 5'7 /5'8 How do you explain this?

Next to Harrison Ford 5'11 nowadays

Sorry guys but to me and very people Stallone was taller than the 5'9 mark in peak

I don`t believe he wears always lifts or elevator shoes
MJKoP said on 15/Nov/17
He's five-foot-eleven, guys. Do you think this face could tell a lie?

Editor Rob: RED WARNING ALERT issued.

Do not click the above link, I nearly had a heart attack!

Shame on you MJK, I might end up with nightmares now 😈

to be honest, I've taken some devilish pictures myself over the years 🤢 😎
Harris said on 15/Nov/17
@Free: That's absolutely ridiculous! Sly has pulled off a decent 5'9" more often than not, in normal footwear. The least I could argue is 5'8.5" for his peak. Most of the evidence points towards Rob's listings. However, a flat 5'8" can be argued for today I guess, but no less. 5'7" is a silly disproven myth.
Free said on 14/Nov/17
He was never taller than 5-7. You can see it in an episode of Kojack talking with 5-10 Telly Savales
