At 6ft 2, the Swedish actor is quite a towering figure. The megastar is best known for roles in Red Scorpion, Masters of the Universe, showdown in little Tokyo, Rocky 4 and Expendables once had a peak height of 6ft 5.
This height has not always made things easier for him. Initially, he was turned down for being too tall in Rocky 4. Dolph Lundgren’s two decade-and-a-half in the film industry may have contributed to a loss of a few inches.
You may like to know that the action movie star is taller than Jason Statham, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and Sylvester Stallone. Most of the stars in this list are of the average height of around 5ft.
He weighs about 250 pounds and may be at par with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
If it were all about the height, Dolph Lundgren body would beat almost every star in Hollywood, maybe except Andre, the Giant; that is if he was also an actor.
The villain roles he has played and his massive build has made it almost impossible not to know him. The Swedish actor has had a successful career in acting and movie production. So, apart from his height, what else should we know about Dolph Lundgren?
Dolph Lundgren was born in Sweden Stockholm in November 1957. He was the son of Karl Johan Hugo Lundgren, an engineer and Sigrid Birgitta who taught English.
Lundgren was raised in Stockholm but would later go to live with his grandparents in Ångermanland. He has an older brother and two sisters. And just like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lundgren started weight lifting as early as ten years, maybe younger than Arnold.
Lundgren’s father was abusive, and would often call him a loser. As a result, he worked hard to prove his father wrong.
Fine arts and music were his earliest interests. However, he studied engineering at school and got a degree. His interest in heavy contact sports such as judo, karate, boxing was quite significant. Lundgren would later become a world-class competitor in karate. Something he would easily have matched other action stars such as Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and maybe Bruce Lee.
Education and Professional Career
Many musicians and actors never completed their education to pursue their passion. That is not the case with Lundgren. The guy is highly educated.
After completing High School, he went to Clemson University and Washington State University. He also got a master’s degree to study chemical engineering At University of Sydney, Australia. Within a year, Lundgren will get a Fulbright scholarship to study at MIT.
However, he would follow his heart and study drama at the Warren Robertson Theatre Workshop.
Some of the movies under his belt include Rocky IV, A View to a Kill and Pentathlon. Lundgren Produced and acted on Pentathlon. He has appeared in almost 60 films, and it does not seem like he is going to stop soon.
And even though we cannot doubt that he is a great actor, he does not have many awards to show for it. He has a lifetime achievement diamond award from CineRockom International Film Festival and Marshall Trophy for his role in Rocky IV.
Before Dolph Lundgren was famous, he got into a relationship with a Jamaican singer and actor, Grace Jones. However, the relationship would only last for six months before it ended abruptly. Later, Lundgren would cite tiring sex orgies from the Jamaican partner as the reason for their breakup.
Paula Barbieri was the next woman that he got into a relationship with. And just like the first one, things will not go so well with the American model. He would get married to Peri Momm in 1991, but end within a year.
The actor married Anette Qviberg in 1994, and it almost seemed like Lundgren had found some stability. They had two children and decided to live some distance from Hollywood so that they could have a normal life.
Unfortunately, the couple would divorce in 2011 after 17 years of marriage. That very same year, Lundgren got into a relationship with Jenny Sanderson. There are some speculations that the two are married, but there is no evidence to that effect. Lundgren and Sanderson live together.
