Arnold Schwarzenegger (six foot one, claimed) interviewed Lewis Hamilton (five foot eight and a half, claimed) at the podium of the Australian Grand Prix over the weekend. Hamilton, in front of a worldwide live audience, told Arnold he thought he was taller.

Arnold replied, "I'm not wearing my high heels."

Here's the interview in full, conducted because Arnold was in town for a bodybuilding event. Hamilton was clearly juiced to see the dude. The key line is about a minute in, but you should watch the whole thing.


It should be noted that both heights of these two men are in question. Hamilton has been called 5' 7," and Arnold has been called 5' 10."

For reference, here's Hamilton standing next to Yao Ming.
