Dolph Lundgren Height

"Everybody's life has some mythical quality. You struggle against obstacles, you fight to get to a higher level and there are great loves."

~ Dolph Lundgren

Action star, Dolph Lundgren is known for starring in movies such as Masters of the Universe, Red Scorpion, The Punisher, Universal Soldier series, The Expendables series, and The Rock series.

People are interest in Dolph Lundgren's height because he is also known for being big.

In the movie Rocky 4 Dolph towers over Sylvester Stallone and looks just majestic.

After the release of that movie, Dolph Lundgren used to be described as an almost 6-feet-6 inches tall giant -- but the thing is, Dolph himself never claimed more than 6-feet-5 inches tall.

And he looked around that mark in Rocky 4 -- dwarfing Sylvester Stallone by more than, what was it 7 or 8 inches? If Sylvester Stallone had been 5-feet-10 inches tall, then Dolph certainly would have been more than 6'5" in his prime.

But as it happens we don't think Sylvester Stallone was anything significant above the 5'9" mark, which in our honest opinion makes Dolph slightly above 6-feet-4 inches tall in his prime. Some more such height comparisons confirms our impression of Dolph height.

But Mr. Lundgren looks a bit shorter now.

Taller people lose height (mainly due to dehydrating and compressing of vertebral discs) faster than shorter ones, and Dolph Lundgren seems to be a classic case of this, just like Hulk Hogan (but Hulkster has lost more than 3 inches).

We think Dolph looks around 2 inches shorter than his prime self nowadays.

The height of Dolph Lundgren is

6'2½" or 189 cm

Height in his prime was 6'4½"
