oh the average guess is way to low for peak. We dont know what shoes he and arnold did have. arnold could have had lifts to look more alfha when they in reality was maybe identical in heihgt. But if they had the sam footwear then 6´1 is impossible for this guy.and arnold was probabl 186, that leavis this guy at 184,5. I give him 6´1 peak but could see the argument for just under.
Editor Rob
I'd have put them very close in True Lies, considering Tom's posture at times wasn't as good as Arnie's.

He looked about an inch shorter than Arnie in true lies I thought. And he doesn't really look 6'1 in trailer park boys either. 6'0.5
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Feb/21
My favourite of Tom's films is the hilarious but touching 'Nine Months', in which Tom plays the father of lots of daughters, and his wife, Joan Cusack, falls pregnant with another one and the two meet up with couple Hugh Grant and Julianne Moore, who are expecting for the first time.

Jeff Goldblum and Robin Williams also star.

6ft1. 👶👶

Arnold looked 186-187cm and Tom 185-186cm
Linke said on 4/Oct/20
Rob, do you think someone like schwarzenegger went from being taller than this guy to about an inch and bit shorter than him due to his massive height loss?
Editor Rob
Well he certainly didn't seem shorter than Tom in 1993-4 when making True lies, but 25 years later he is shorter than him for sure.
berta said on 8/Aug/20
average guess is way to low. he seems abut 6´1 most of the time. but arnold did have half inch on him in true lies and i think arnold could have been loser to 186 peak.
HeightRealist said on 21/Jul/20
Max 6ft at peak and little less nowadays. I think 182cm nowadays.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/May/20
Maybe bulky size make him look more like flat 6'0. He could be 6'1 peak but not sure is he still above 6'0.25".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/19
No less than 6ft1 peak
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Nov/19
Click Here Peak Goodman had Tom by two inches in this picture.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Aug/19
He look close to 6'1 with peak Arnie. Tom could have lost 3/4 inch since he is 60 now, potential of losing 2cm at 60 years old is always possible. Could be 6'0.75" peak and 6'0 now.

Hong said on 17/May/19
I'd say this guy was 6ft.75 peak and 6ft2 in shoes, slightly shorter than Arnold in true lies, but that could be down to footwear, him and Arnold looked preety similar.
Rising - 174 cm said on 27/Dec/18
Still actually looks 6'1" a couple of years ago with 6'2.5" listed Liev Schreiber: Click Here He could be just 6'0.5" these days, but he measures up better than I expected in that pic.
berta said on 6/Dec/18
Also dax shepard who always have converse shoes on looks 4,5 cm taller and is about 189,5 that makes him 185, but with bigger hels wich makes 184 cm possible. 184 seems to low for him at peak though, The listing is good.
berta said on 6/Dec/18
From old movies he could look 185-186 but with arnold schwarzenegger he didnt look a mm over 185 if arnold was 186-187.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/18
Arnold still looks 6ft1 there. Dax is over 6ft2

5 foot 11 and 3/4 and 6'1 with leather shoes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/17
Really could look 6ft1¼ range in the 80's-90's but Schwarzenegger did edge him in True Lies.
berta said on 7/Feb/17
well arnold was probably only 186 at peak and 1 cm taller than this guy ore 1,5. i think barely 6 foot 1 is good
Sonny Black said on 1/Oct/16
Watching him in True Lies he looks to be about the same height as Arnie who was supposedly 6'1-6'2 back in the day, but I find it hard to believe because I stood 5ft from Arnie a couple year ago and he was no taller than 5'11 imo. At 6'0 myself I felt like I had a solid inch on him, that means he's lost 2-3inches over 20yrs which seems unusual, my Dad is 60 and he's the same height he was when he was 30.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jun/16
Rob, are you convinced he still holds 6ft1 today is he possibly dipping slightly below it?
Editor Rob
he's now at an age where he could be dipping under it, or at least losing a fraction of height.
berta said on 14/Jun/16
looked at true lies yesterday.Hm i would say Arnold is 1,5 cm taller. And Arnold was maybe just 186 peak( i Think he lookes more that than 187) That would make this guy 184,5 but if Arnold really was 187 then he is 185,5 maybe even pushing 186
Dmeyer said on 9/Jun/16
To me hé looks nearer 6ft flat today as arnie is 5ft 11,5 And hé looks similar And hé looks max 3in on sly who is weak 5ft 9 , 6ft 1 peak 6ft now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/16
He may not have lost height at all. Still looks a decent 6ft1 today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/16
He doesn't look less than this beside Dax Shephard either
Dmeyer said on 13/Apr/16
Looked close to 2in taller than me but had à solid 0,5in more shoes so more 1,5in si bang on 6'1
berta said on 12/Apr/16
looks like a very legit 6 foot 1 never shorter than 185 and probably not taller than 186,5 i think
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/16
Roughly 1in below Goodman.

Tom Arnold - 6ft1¼(186cm)
John Goodman - 6ft2¼(189cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/16
Rob, which zone is most likely for Tom?

A) 188.5cm/186.5cm
B) 188cm/186cm
C) 187.5cm/185.5m
D) 187cm/185cm
Editor Rob
I think generally C, but would maybe see him again in 80's to consider if he could look 186 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/15
Schwarzenegger I meant
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/15
True Lies was one instance where Arnold actually looked at least 6ft2!

Tom Arnold - 6ft1¼(186cm)
dmeyer said on 31/May/14
in person looked near 2 in taller than me so 6 ft 1.5 but had 1cm more shoes so legit 6 ft 1 185.5cm makes sens i aint sure he is 186-187cm like many on this page think , similar to Costner in person
Dmeyer said on 27/May/14
In person looked near 186cm but he had a solid 1cm more shoes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/14
If John Goodman was 6ft2.5/189cm, Arnold was for sure 186-187cm on Roseanne.

Rob, is a fraction over 6ft1 possible for this guy?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/13
Arnold was still 6ft1.5/187cm range in True Lies.
Hugh Grant is a legit 5ft11/180cm

"Tom Arnold height: 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/13
188cm morning

Dmeyer said on 30/Dec/12
This Guy is probably 185.5cm night like a very strong 6'1 , Rob do you agree hé dosnt dip under 6'1 night
Editor Rob
he can look shorter with loose posture but probably measured still is a 6ft 1er
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/12
Legit 6ft1.5 guy.

No way guys, Arnold Schwarzenegger was always a bit taller than him in True Lies, he's 6'1 max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Nov/11
If he clears 6ft2 out of bed, he's gotta be at least 187cm
Dmeyer said on 8/Nov/11
Hé clears 6'2 out of bed
Dmeyer said on 8/Oct/11
I thaught 6'1.5 but hé had near 1cm more shoe
Dmeyer said on 8/Oct/11
In person hé looked 6'1 hé seemed near 2 in on me but and a thick dress shoes 1.3-1.4 in type i had just 1 in so about 6'1 legit and a bit over 6'2 in dress shoes Arnie was similar height in true lies. Today shorter
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/11
186-187cm, looked about the same as Arnold in True Lies.
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 27/Aug/11
Don't know now, but he was a full 6'1 and Schwarzenegger was 6'1.25-6'1.5 in True Lies.
the dude said on 11/Jul/11
No way this dude is any taller than 6'0.5". I'm watching True Lies right now and Arnie (6'1.5" MAX)looks about 1-1.5" taller.
Dominic said on 11/Jun/11
yeah he was never as tall as Arnie in True Lies. Im watching it right now. Arnie looks like he has an inch on him at all times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/11
Rob is 6"2 possible?

in a sneaker, but barefoot I'm not as sure on that.

ya Tom Arnold should be about 6 ft 1 1/2 and arnold is about 6 ft 1 Arnold aint really what he makes out to be in height.
5'7.56 said on 22/Jan/11
big joe, actually, in Exit Wounds, there are moments where Tom can look almost as tall as Steven Segal, I think he's closer to 6'2 than 6'1, he's definitely a bit taller than 6'1.5 Schwarzenegger and has at least 2" on 6' Isaiah Washington.
the dude said on 13/Jan/11
6'1" he claims 6'2", the day this is even close to true is the day i die, this guy looked 5'6" in his recent comedy show, maybe he's 5'8" or 5'9" but 6'2", get the outta here, this is the one guys height i am truly sure about, no matter what people say if i could bet my life this guy was never even 5'11" i would, i really am 6'2" if this guys 6'1" then im 6'8".
big joe said on 4/Jan/11
In exit wounds he looked average. Crazy how he's listed at 6'1. Steven Seagal looked 6 inches taller than him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/11
He's 186-187cm
krazy krippled! said on 2/Jan/11
In True Lies he's 1cm taller than Arnie S, so he's 188-189cm, Rob should put him a 6'2., and Goddman'd be 6'2.5.
T.J. said on 20/Jun/09
I take my comment back.
I saw an episode of Roseanne where he wa the EXACT same height as John Goodman (6'2") So, very close to 6'2" for Tom
Alex (London) said on 13/Jun/09
In Exit Wounds next to Steven Seagal I felt Tom Arnold looks around 5'11" or LESS.

Forget comparisons to Arnie as he is such an obvious lift wearer.

I don't buy him as a genuine barefoot Six Footer at any rate.
T.J. said on 7/Jun/09
In True Lies, Arnold had a clear inch and a half over him
6'0" for Tom

I would really like to know the height of Brad Arnold, vocalist of 3 doors down. He seems to be tall, like 182cm...
sidewinder said on 10/Apr/09
just watched true lies. he is the same height of arnold so i can say 6.1+ (185/186) seems pretty accurate.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 15/Mar/09
I beleive he is 186cm to 187cm.
RisingForce said on 5/Mar/09
Patrick, in the picture Tom looks a hair shorter. Obviously Tom's taller barefoot but apparently in footwear that night Sly was a little taller.
Patrick said on 11/Feb/09
RisingForce, Tom doesn't look shorter here! He "is" taller than Sly, whatever heels and lifts the latter can wear. Just need to use a ruler!
RisingForce said on 6/Feb/09
When did you meet him dmeyer?

He looked a hair shorter than Sly in 2007
Click Here

Tom had 1 or 1.25" sneakers and Sly had elevator shoes around 3 inches, maybe a little less.

I'm confused about how Tom could be a legit 6-1 and wear sneakers but look shorter than Sly in 3 inch elevator shoes, especially since both of their posture is good.
dmeyer said on 5/Jan/09
legitimate 6 ft 1 in person could have been 6 ft 1.5 peak wish will explain 6 ft 2 claim
Hugh said on 2/Dec/08
Arnold looking shorter than Arnie is questionable.

John Goodman's surely 6'1" And I guess they're the same height..

That means barefoot.

Between 6ft1 and 6ft2 but closer to 6ft1.
Axle Starr said on 28/Sep/08
What does that mean, 'right out of bed'?
Jasper said on 19/Sep/08
On "Roseanne", Tom was always a good 1"-1.5" shorter than John Goodman. Having met Goodman, I would guess Tom is 6', maybe 6'1" at most right out of bed.
dmeyer said on 31/Mar/08
in person looked an easy 6 ft 1er and arnie looked 1.25 in taller than him in true lies so like 6 ft 2.25
dmeyer said on 9/Jan/08
about 186 cm in person also steven seagal towers him and isiah in exit wounds so 6'4.5 for seagal

Tom was very similar height to Arnold in True Lies. On Roseanne he was one inch shorter than 6'2 John Goodman. He is 6'1 barefoot and 6'2 in shoes
jack said on 7/Jun/07
I met tom arnold at an after party, he's easily 6'1 if not 6'2".
Aaron said on 5/Jun/07
he's slouching though...tall people don't stand as tall as they can when they're next to smaller people. Think about it.

Arnold looks only four inches taller than Glenn (i.e., the top of Glenn's head is level with Arnold's eyebrows, unless Arnold's head is longer than average).

Check out the Routh's page AAAA, he's been upgraded to 6'2.75''. He's the same height, if not a bit taller than The rock. I agree Tom may be 6'2'' or slightly lower. Although we can't see his footwear....

Brett, Tom Arnold is much closer to the camera than Kuerten - about 6'1" seems right.
Brett said on 29/Oct/05
Lleyton Hewitt is meant to be 5'11" and Arnold looks like 3-4inches taller then him, but like 2inches shorter then Keurten, I think Keurton is more then 6'3" , and Id put arnold at 6'2" atleast.

i am french by the way when someone say is 185 cm in france it is more like 6'1' because 6.o75 is 184.787 also when someone is 185.5 cm in france he just say i am 185 so 185 in europe is defenetly 6'1
dmeyer said on 29/Apr/05
by the way the governer is taller than tom by 4 cm in true lies that would make him schwarzenegger 189cm
Mr. Nice Guy said on 20/Mar/05
I met Tom when he stopped to do a local talk show for celebrities and he was just about same height as me 6'1" (185.5 cm). But I've also met Guga (Kuerten) and he's definately taller than 6'3" even, I think Guga might have a a half inch over 6'3". I think Tom is just about 6'1", who knows though, he might be at the age now where he possibly could have even shrunk.
