Arnold's Grown Since Then

For what it's worth, I can verify that Schwarzenegger stands five foot ten, five foot eleven, tops [Hot Type, September 19]. While I was in college I worked for a catering company in Boston that handled a lot of events for the Kennedy family. On one occasion we did a wedding in Newport for a member of the clan whose name I now forget. Anyway, through the course of the evening I came face-to-face with Schwarzenegger several times. I'm an honest-to-god six foot two, and I found myself looking down on Schwarzenegger. He's not in any way a physically imposing person. He did, however, exhibit impeccable manners that evening.
