Love Wins: Celebrity Couples Who Found Love Despite Their Height Gap

They say the path to love never runs smoothly, but when two people fall for each other, love usually conquers all. Whether they have an issue with race, class, religion, gender, age, real love can be unstoppable. It can even make people forget their differences, and conventions, society, and opinions hardly matter. So when it comes to height gaps, this can be just another obstacle in the course of true love.

We’ve compiled a list of our favorite celebrity power couples, who have noticeable height differences. For most, it’s only when you see them together on the red carpet that the height gap is evident. Still, these famous faces prove to us all that height is just height and that love is still love.

Mary-Kate Olsen (5’2″) and Olivier Sarkozy (6’3″)

Mary-Kate Olsen grew up as a child- star on the series ‘Full House’ with her twin sister, Ashley Olsen. Together the twin-duo had lived their life in the limelight, becoming actresses, fashionistas and producers. So when the press found out that Mary-Kate had been dating Olivier Sarkosky, it caused a media field day and there was plenty of tabloid speculation.

One of the reasons for the interest was that Mary-Kate was 31 and Olivier was 49. Olivier is French banker and also the half-brother of the French President, and aside from the age gap, he also stands at 6’3” and she is 5’2”. While the height and age differences may have been a big deal for the press, this didn’t seem to matter to the couple, and they have been married since 2015.

Cameron Diaz (5’9″) and Benji Madden (5’6″)

Cameron Diaz established herself as one of Hollywood’s leading ladies, after starring in movies like ‘Charlie’s Angels’, ‘There’s Something About Mary’ and ‘Shrek’. She continued to cement her success with her most recent movies like, ‘Sex Tape’ and ‘Annie’. The blonde bombshell also found love with a musician, Benji Madden, the lead guitarist for the band Good Charlotte.

Amazingly, the pair were set up on a date by Nicole Ritchie and hit it off from there. In 2015 Benji proposed, and after a whirlwind, 17-day engagement, couple tied the knot. While Cameron stands taller than Benji by 2 inches, their height gap wasn’t an issue for this couple. In 2018, Cameron decided to take a break from acting and now spends her time with Benji and her family.

Seth Green (5’4″) and Clare Grant (5’7″)

This comical duo first hit it off in 2006, when they ran into each other at the reopening of Golden Apple Comics. They were both huge comic fans and had the same sense of humor, so when they met again at another Comic convention in San Diego, we’re sure that spark began to fly.

While there might be a physical height gap, as Clare is 5’7” and Seth at 5’4”, the pair are a perfect match in almost every way. They both share a passion for comic books, TV and fast food. The couple later collaborated on an Emmy-award winning animated TV show ‘Robot’ Chicken’, and took their relationship to the next level by marrying in 2010.

Hafthor Julius Bjornsson (6’9″) & Kelsey Henson (5’2″)

When you are the world’s strongest man (officially), there is a good chance that you’re going to be tall – very tall. Hailing from Iceland, it’s clear that Hafthor Julius Bjornsson is one of the descendants of the Vikings and it looks like he is proud to represent his country at an international level.

He towers over his wife Kelsey Henson, who he married in 2018. Fans were so excited to see what happens to his character Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane in the last season of Game Of Thrones.

Chris Bosh (6’11”) & Adrienne Williams (5’00”)

Chris Bosh isn’t the biggest player in Miami Heat. But come on, he’s 6’11”. By any standards other than basketball, that’s tall. His giant stature becomes more pronounced when he poses next to his wife, Adrienne Williams. American businesswoman and philanthropist, Williams is a full two feet shorter than her athletic husband.

Nonetheless, Bosh and Williams got married in 2011. If you haven’t figured it out by now, height is just a number. They’ve been enjoying their married life and happily welcomed three sons and a daughter into their fold.

Reese Witherspoon (5’1″) and Jim Toth (6’1″)

Reese Witherspoon made a name for herself as an American movie sweetheart and is one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood. She cemented her award-winning status in roles like ‘Legally Blonde’ and ‘Walk the Line’ and is now producing and starring in the series ‘Little Big Lies’. She later found love with Jim Toth, and the duo look adorable together, despite the height gap.


Jim Toth is a celebrity talent scout who has worked with some of the most famous faces in Hollywood. We’re sure when this talent-guru spotted Reese Witherspoon, that it didn’t take long to fall for her talented charms. While Reese is 5’11” and Jim towers over her at 6’11”, we’re sure this wasn’t even an issue. The pair later married and still seem very much in love.

Daniel Radcliffe (5’5″) and Erin Darke (5’7″)

Daniel Radcliffe has already come a long way since his Harry Potter days. After the last spellbinding movie in the wizard franchise was released, he went on to star in critically-acclaimed movies like ‘Swiss Army Man’, and ‘Kill Your Darlings’.


It was when he starred in ‘Kill Your Darlings’ that he met the actress Erin Darke on the set. While Erin is two inches taller than Daniel, this hasn’t been an issue for them. The happy couple have now been together for over six years, and are still going strong.

Lisa Bonet (5’2″) and Jason Momoa (6’4″)

Jason Momoa had his big career break on the set of ‘Game of Thrones’ (GOT) as Khal Drogo. Throughout the series, he endured a dramatic and action-filled journey, until he sadly passed away on the show and Daenerys lost the love of her life. Still, outside of GOT kingdom, Jason has been happily married to his own true love, Lisa Bonnet.

While Jason is 38, Lisa Bonnet is 12 years older than him. He also towers over her at 6’4”. Still, when Jason first saw Lisa on ‘The Cosby Show’ in 1987, he decided she would be his future wife. The couple later met in 2007 and he swept her off her feet. Their age and height gaps weren’t even a consideration and the happy couple have now welcomed two children into the world.

Will Smith (6’2″) and Jada Pinkett Smith (5’0″)

Will Smith first met his love, Jada Pinkett Smith on the set of the ‘Fresh Prince of Belair.’ At the time, she was auditioning for the part of his character’s on-screen wife, Lisa Wikes. Although she didn’t make the cut for that part, we’re sure she left an unforgettable impression on Will.

Funnily enough, Jada didn’t get the part because she was too small, at 5’0”, while he was 6’2”! Evidently, the producers though their height difference would be an issue for the camera operator. Thankfully, they didn’t let that get in the way of anything, and the Hollywood power couple are now happily married with two children.

Mila Kunis (5’4″) and Ashton Kutcher (6’2″)

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher both started their acting careers as teenagers on ‘That 70’s Show’. They starred as an adorable on-screen couple, but it wasn’t until years later that they actually got together. The pair both went on separate paths and later met again in 2012, at the Golden Globe Awards.


When the pair locked eyes once again, sparks began to fly. They started dating in real life and fell in love. The couple got engaged in 2014, married in 2015 and now have two gorgeous children. They often say how much they love each other in interviews, and we’re sure they didn’t even notice the height difference.

Kim Kardashian (5’3″) & Kris Humphries (6’9″)

We all are very much aware by now that Kim Kardashian is married to hip-hop artist Kanye West and the two of them have three kids. However, some people might not know that Kim was previously married to a much taller man by the name of Kris Humphries.

She tied the knot with the towering basketball player on August 20, 2011. But their marriage goes down as one of the shortest in history. 72 days after they tied the knot, the TV personality filed for divorce. There’s also a 14-inch height difference between Kanye West and Humphries.

Nicole Kidman (5’11”) and Keith Urban (5’10”)

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are another adorable couple that defy height conventions. While Nicole is 1” taller than her love at 5’11’, this couple look like they were made for each other. They constantly steal the show on the red carpet and are just as cutesy in interviews.

While Nicole has made her mark as an award-winning actress, Keith Urban has made his own mark as a successful country singer. They met after Nicole had divorced her first husband, Tom Cruise and fell head over heels for each other. They have been married since 2006 and Urban famously said, “Definitely, we both met each other at the right time. Meeting her and getting married to her was not life-changing. It was life-beginning.”

Chris Hemsworth (6’3″) and Elsa Pataky (5’3″)

Chris Hemsworth height may have helped him land a few roles in Hollywood. Standing at 6’3”, it seems like he was made for the role of Thor, and has the acting talent and charisma to match. Off the set, Chris has also found his own goddess, in the form of Elsa Pataky.


While Elsa is a foot smaller than Chris at 5’3”, we’re sure this wasn’t an issue for the heavenly couple. They tied the knot in 2010 and are still happily together, with a daughter and two sons.

Kate Middleton (5’9″) and Prince William (6’3″)

This royal couple have managed to win us all over in their own special way. They first met at the University of St. Andrews in 2003, when they were both students. The world watched their relationship closely and Kate became a popular fashion icon. Eight years later, they got married in a stately ceremony in Westminster Abbey.

Their wedding was watched by over 26.3 million viewers around the globe and helped popularize the royal family for the younger generation. Since then, the world has continued to watch Kate, Will and their growing family closely. While Prince William is 6’3” and Kate is 5’9”, this couple look like a perfect match, and like they were made to be the future King and Queen.

Khloé Kardashian (5’8″) and Tristan Thompson (6’9″)

Khloe Kardashian is an American TV personality, entrepreneur, and socialite. She stars in the reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians and other spin-offs. For more than five years, she was married to Lamar Odom, a basketball player. They even had their own TV show.

After the split, she found love again with another basketball player, Tristan Thompson. Kardashian already has an impressive height of 5’9”, but having a basketball player for a boyfriend meant 5’9” is short. Thompson plays ball at 6’9”. In 2017, the couple announced that they were having a baby. And then in 2018, it was said that they were expecting another one. Sadly, it was recently reported that they split up after Tristan was caught cheating. Very Bad, Tristan.

Fergie (5’4″) and Josh Duhamel (6’4″)

Fergie first rose to fame as part of the popular band The Black Eyed Peas. She later broke out as a solo artist and has continued to dominate the charts with her catchy tunes, like ‘Humps’. While she has carved a successful solo career, she has also been lucky in love too.

Photo Credit: Photo Works /

Fergie first met the US actor Josh Duhamel in 2004 on the set of her show with the Black Eyed Peas in Vegas. He was a rising star and is best known for his roles in ‘Transformer’ films, and ‘Life as We Know It’. When the couple met, we’re sure that sparks flew, and the last thing on their mind was their height gap. The couple dated for years, married in 2009 and had a son. However, it was later reported that the couple decided to go their separate ways.

Channing Tatum (6’1”) & Jenna Dewan (5’3″)

Here’s another Magic Mike actor on the list. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan did that old Hollywood thing and made their onscreen romance real. After filming Step Up, Dewan and Tatum began dating. Eventually, they got married and welcomed a daughter.

The couple’s 10-inch height difference doesn’t seem to bother them. And when they dance together, they look good, as if the height difference weren’t there. They just have this chemistry that makes them look comfortable and compatible with each other. Sadly, the fans of this OTP were dismayed, when they announced their split in 2018.

Christina Ricci (5’1″) & James Heerdegen (6’3″)

This small little lady is a face of success and contentment. Christina Ricci’s diminutive stature has always been obvious but was never a hurdle for her award-winning acting career. Her breakout role was as Wednesday Addams, in The Addams Family movies. In 2008, Ricci dated actor Owen Benjamin. They met in the filming of All’s Faire in Love, and even announced their engagement. However, they were just not meant to be.

In 2013, Ricci met a new guy who was destined to become a big part of her life. She happily informed her family and friends that she was engaged to James Heerdegen, a camera dolly technician she worked with in Pan Am. In October that year, they got married and eventually had a son.

Shaquille O’Neal (7’1″) and Laticia Rolle (5’6″)

Shaquille O’Neal is a world-class, US professional basketball player and is known for his trademark huge height at 7’1”. After spending 19 years on the NBA court, he later became a top sports analyst and a media personality and has won plenty of fans around the world. Off the court, Shaq has also been lucky in love too.

Since 2014, Shaq was in a long-term relationship with Laticia Rolle. Laticia is a former NBA Dwarf’s star, and is also 5’6”. Still, they didn’t let their height differences get in the way, especially as they had so much in common. Laticia was also a basketball superstar. Unfortunately, the couple later split up, but Shaquille found love again and married to Shaunie O’Neal.

Kourtney Kardashian (5’1”) and Younes Bendjima (6’2″)

Kourtney Kardashian stepped into the limelight with her family on the mega-successful reality show, ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’. When the fashionista and businesswoman started dating and married her husband Younes Benjima, we’re sure she didn’t mind wearing her heels to keep up with their height gap.


While there is a height difference between the couple, as Kourtney is 5’0” and Younes is 6’2”, there is also a glaring age gap. Kourtney first met Younes, a model from Algeria in 2016, when she was 39 and he was 24. They crossed paths in Paris and had a whirlwind romance, before getting hitched. While they were together for a while, they have now reportedly split.

Carmelo Anthony (6’8″) and La La Anthony (5’6″)

Carmelo Anthony is a pro basketballer for the Giants, and definitely towers over most people, standing at 6’8”. His height has probably been one of his secret weapons for his pro-basketball career. Still, when he stands next to his wife, La La Anthony, it’s only then that you realize how tall he really is.

Photo Credit: taniavolobueva /

La La Anthony is a successful American TV personality, and we’re that their busy careers and height gap didn’t get in the way of their relationship. She once said in an interview, ”We are the best of friends and our number one commitment is to our 10-year-old son, Kiyan,” La La said. How sweet!

Natalie Portman (5’3″) and Benjamin Millepied (5’10”)

Natalie Portman is a big figure in Hollywood. She’s known to choose her roles very well. One of the characters she portrayed, that certainly put her on the map, was in the psychological horror, Black Swan. Aside from being an award-winning actress, Portman is also a Harvard graduate, and she even said once, “I’d rather be smart than a movie star.”

Source: Pinterest

In 2012, Portman married Benjamin Millepied, a French ballet dancer. They met during the making of Black Swan in 2009, where Millepied was the choreographer. Just a year after, they announced their engagement. The couple then left L.A. and went to Paris in 2014, when Millepied accepted a job as director of dance, in the Paris Opera Ballet.

Ashley Tisdale (5’3″) and Christopher French (6’4″)

The High School Musical fans out there will remember Sharpay Evans. She’s so over Troy and Gabriella. She’s happy with her new partner in life, Christopher French. Our Sharpay Evans looks so cute next to French, even though he’s more than a foot taller than her.

After graduating from High School Musical, Ashley Tisdale didn’t stop making music. In fact, she works it out with her boyfriend. Christopher French is the lead singer for Annie Automatic, an LA-based alt-rock band. The two started dating in 2012, and their love is still be going strong. Their mutual musical inclinations surely share some of the credit. Ashley Tisdale has already released two albums. For her third, she is working with French.

Levi Meaden (5’11”) and Ariel Winter (5’1″)

Ariel Winter became famous when she took on the role of Alex Dunphy, in Modern Family. She’s also the voice actress of Sofia, in Disney’s Sofia the First. Behind the camera, Ariel Winter was more than happy in her relationship with Canadian actor, Levi Meaden.

We’ve seen Levi Meaden in War for the Planet of the Apes, Alice in the Attic, Pacific Rim: Uprising, and a lot more. They were one of those couples that just looks cute together. Aside from the fact that Meaden is 5’11” tall, while Winter is just 5’1”, they shared a chemistry so strong, fans could feel the love that flows between the two.

Joe Jonas (5’7″) and Sophie Turner (5’9″)

Joe Jonas jumped into the limelight as a member of the popular boyband, The Jonas Brothers, and as the star of numerous Disney movies. He recently joined another US band, DNCE, and their hit single. ‘Cake by the Ocean’ dominated the charts. Joe had his fair share of romances before he finally met his wife, Sophie Turner.

Source: Pop Sugar

Joe had previously been linked to some of the most famous faces in the industry, including Camilla Belle, Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, and Demi-Lovato. Still, when he met the Game of Thrones star, Sophie Turner, she was finally the one that was able to sweep him off his feet. The couple got engaged in October 2018 and tied the knot in Vegas in 2019. The fact that she is taller than him at 5’10”, didn’t get in the way.

Jay Cutler (6’3″) and Kristin Cavallari (5’3″)

The gift of height is not just for basketball players. Football players are also huge. Retired football quarterback, Jay Cutler, played for more than 10 seasons in the NFL. He stands out at 6’3”. That’s a foot taller than his wife Kristin Cavallari, an American TV personality and actress.

Cutler and Cavallari began dating in 2010. A year after, they announced their engagement. There were some issues during the engagement but they still pushed through. In 2013, they finally got married. At present, they are very happy and have two sons and a daughter.

Ian Somerhalder (5’10”) and Nikki Reed (5’4″)

Let’s hear some cheer from The Vampire Diaries crowd. Damon Salvatore and Rosalie Hale made it in real life. Fans were excited when Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed announced that they were dating in 2014.

Some more good news for the fans and family of the couple came when they confirmed their engagement in 2015. A few months later, they got married in the wonderful and magical Malibu. Two years later, they had their first child. They started as strangers, brought together as co-stars and now they are blissfully happy with their daughter, Bodhi Soleil. Finally a vampire story with a happy ending!

Peter Dinklage (4’4″) and Erica Schmidt (5’6″)

Peter Dinklage shot to fame on the set of ‘Game of Thrones’ as the clever and charismatic Tyrion Lannister. The actor has also proved popular for his roles in ‘Three Billboards Outside Missouri’ and ‘The Station Agent’.

Peter Dinklage was born with a form of dwarfism, so is 4’5”. He clearly didn’t let that get in the way of his outstanding career, and he didn’t let that get in the way of his love life. Peter married the American actress, Erica Schmidt in 2005 and gushed about her in an interview saying “she’s very inspiring. She’s definitely the artist of the family. I am just the TV actor who pays the bills.

Jessica Simpson (5’3″) and Eric Johnson (6’2″)

Jessica Simpson rose to fame as a teen star and released her first album when she was just sixteen. She later famously married Nick Lachey and the pair starred in their own spin-off reality show, ‘The Newlyweds’. After the couple split, Jessica dated a few other famous faces, including John Mayor, before she found her knight in shining armor, in the form of Eric Johnson.

Source: New York Daily News

Eric Johnson had carved a successful career as an NFL football player, so we’re sure that his height at 6’3”, gave him an advantage on the pitch. Perhaps Jessica also didn’t mind that he a foot taller than her, and the couple began dating in 2010. They later got engaged and welcomed two children in 2012 and 2013. After finally marrying in 2018, they are expecting their third baby.

Lebron James (6’9″) & Savannah Brinson (5’7″)

If you’re going to date a basketball player, you’re going to expect a major height gap and the difference can look even bigger than it actually is. However, this doesn’t really apply to Savannah Brinson. At 5 feet and 7 inches tall, she is definitely not short. And so compared to Lebron, she’s not as short as some other B-Ball wives.

Lebron James & Savannah Brinson

The couple has been together since they met in high school. How sweet! In 2013, James and Brinson officially got married. Seeing that James is one of the highest-paid NBA players right now, I don’t think that Savannah is going to be leaving him anytime soon.

Shakira (5’2″) and Gerard Pique (6’4″)

This celebrity couple first met in 2010 during the World Cup. Amazingly, Shakira was filming her World-cup-themed ‘Waka-Waka’ music video, and Gerard Pique was one of the football stars to feature in the video. Clearly, he piqued her interest, and even though Gerard is 6’4” and towered over Shakira at 5’0”, love won.

Source: US Weekly

One year after the release of that music video, Shakira and Gerard made their relationship official in the public. Soon after this, the couple tied the knot and have since welcomed two children in the world. While they are still happily married, Shakira has continued to be a best-selling artist and Gerard is still a world-class footballer.

Wladimir Klitschko (6’6″) and Hayden Panettiere (5′)

Hayden Panettiere shot to fame as the cheerleader, Claire Bennet, in Heroes. When she met the professional boxer, Wladimir Klitschko, the couple fell for each other and started dating. Hayden is also 5’0” and Wladimir is 6’6”, so their 18 inches height gap didn’t get the way of their love. Their 13-year age gap didn’t seem to affect them either.

Source: Pro Boxing Fans

In spite of their height differences and the glaring age gaps, Hayden and Wladimir ended up getting married, and in 2014, they welcomed a daughter Kaya into the world. While they were together for nine years, the couple eventually called it quits, but at least they still have Kaya. We just wonder if she inherited their father or mother’s height genes.

Megan Fox (5’4″) & Brian Austin Green (6′)

There may be a huge age and height difference between these two, but it seems that doesn’t change a thing.  Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox began dating in 2004. They worked together in the TV sitcom, Hope and Faith. At the time, Fox was 18 years old and Green was already 30. Height and age differences aside, they fell.

Source: Pinterest

So, in 2006, it was no surprise when they announced their engagement. But in 2009, when they called it off. It was a roller-coaster ride that wasn’t over yet. In 2010, they announced they were back together and getting married that same year. Even just days after their marriage, difficulties continued to arise for the couple. But they made it through, and have three kids of their own now.

Kristen Stewart (5’5″) & Robert Pattinson (6’1″)

Once upon a time, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were the “it” couple that everyone was rooting for. They originally starred alongside each other in the vampire movie series Twilight, and it didn’t take long for the two to begin a real-life romance off-screen.

But like many other celeb couples in Hollywood, the two eventually split up. Everything came crumbling down when, in 2012, Stewart was seen on camera being intimate with Rupert Sanders, the Snow White, and the Huntsman director. After breaking up and getting back together, Stewart and Pattinson officially called it quits in May 2013.

Salma Hayek (5’2″) & Edward Norton (6’0″)

Salma Hayek is currently married to French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, but there was a time when she was romantically involved with a fellow Hollywood star. Between 1999 and 2003, Hayek was dating the talented actor Edward Norton from Fight Club and American History X star. And Norton is one tall dude.

The two had a 10-inch difference between them as Norton sure did tower over her while they were together. Here’s a fun fact: it was their chiropractor that set them up! Isn’t that amusing? Well, in the end, as we know, these two didn’t stay together. Sometimes it’s not meant to last.

Rod Stewart (5’10”) and Penny Lancaster (6’1″)

Rod Stewart established himself as an iconic British rock star, and on his journey to stardom, he had also been married twice, to Alana Stewart and Rachel Hunter. He later met his next love, Penny Lancaster, who is a photographer and model. It seems like Rod 5’10” has a penchant for tall woman. Just like his previous relationships, Penny is also taller than him, and stands at 6’1”.

Photo Credit:  Twocoms /

The couple first met in 1999, when Rod asked Penny to be a photographer on his tour. Before long, they fell in love, and in November 2005, they welcomed their first child into the world. In 2007, the couple tied the knot and celebrated the birth of their second child four years later. To this couple, their height gap probably didn’t even come into the equation.

Tina Fey (5’5″) and Jeff Richmond (5’2″)

Tiny Fey first met Jeff Richmond in 1994. They soon proved to be a successful comedy couple, and managed to produce some of the greatest comedy series ever created, from ‘Second City’ and ‘30 Rock’ to ‘The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’. While they were successful in their careers, the couple also fell for each other and dated for seven years.

Photo Credit: lev radin /

In 2001, the power couple tied the knot, and when you see them together, they look made for each other. You probably wouldn’t even realize that Tina is 3 inches taller than Jeff. Still, she still manages to make a joke out of it, and said that when she wears her pumps, Jeff looks ‘travel size’.

Jenna Elfman (5’10”) and Bodhi Elfman (5’9″)

Jenna Elfman made her mark in the industry in the 1990s as a leading lady. Some of her greatest roles include ‘Dharma and Greg’, ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’ and ‘Dr. Doolittle’. While Dharma is only one inch taller than her husband Bodhi, at 5’10, she sometimes manages to make it even more apparent by wearing killer stiletto heels on the red carpet.

Photo Credit: Featureflash Photo Agency /

Jenna and Bodhi first met in 1991 on the set of a Sprite commercial audition. The couple later married in 1995 and have managed to stand the test of time, despite their height difference. The couple are both still working and raising a family together.

Ariana Cooper (5’11”) and Deryck Whibley (5’7″)

Deryck Whibley made a name for himself as the frontman for the rock band Sum 41. He was famously married to another rockstar, Avril Lavigne for some time, but later found love again. This time, his wife, Ari Cooper is 6’0”, and towers over him at 5’6”. Still, they didn’t let height conventions slow them down.

Source: Pinterest

In 2014, Deryck had some personal issues, and Ari Cooper proved that she would stick with Deryck through thick and thin. In 2015 the pair got married and the happy couple are still going strong today.

Rhea Durham (5’9″) and Mark Wahlberg (5’8″)

Mark Wahlberg is known for his action roles in gritty movies like ‘The Fighter’ and ‘The Departed’. He also ventured into other careers, including business, rap and producing. Still, the action hero looks pretty tame when he stands next to his wife, Rhea Durham, who is one inch taller than him.


Rhea Durham made a name for herself as a model, and when she met Mark, they became a power couple on the red carpet. The couple dated for eight years before making it official. We’re glad height didn’t get in the way, as they are now happily married and have been blessed with four children.

Danny Devito (4’10”) and Rhea Perlman (5′)

While Rhea is 5’,0” and Danny Devito is 4’10”, this Hollywood couple haven’t let their height difference stop their success. The power duo have proved to be an unstoppable force in the industry and together have amassed five Emmys. Some of their most outstanding movies include ‘Matilda’ and ‘Taxi’.

Photo Credit: s_bukley /

The couple first met in 1971 by chance. Rhea went to see a stage production of the show; The Shrinking Bride’ and Danny just happened to be performing. After just two weeks they decided to move in together and married the following year. They now have three children.

Katie Holmes (5’9″) & Tom Cruise (5’7″)

Okay, so two inches doesn’t seem like a big deal at all, but looking at their photos it looks like they have much more of a height gap. The couple started going out back in 2005, and got engaged after only seven weeks! Typical Hollywood style, right?

Needless to say, Mr. Cruise popped the question at the top of the Eiffel Tower and gave Katie a massive tear-drop ring. Unfortunately, their marriage only lasted for five years and the not-so-happy couple now have a daughter named Suri.

Sarah Michelle Gellar (5’4″) and Freddie Prinze Jr. (6’1″)

This iconic couple first met in 1997 on the set of the movie ‘I know what You Did Last Summer’. Back then, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. were both popular 90s stars. When they first started dating, they became even more popular and many fans loved seeing them together. Even though Freddie is 6’1” and Sarah is 5’2”, the couple look perfectly matched.

In 2002, the loveable duo got married and now have two gorgeous children together. While they seemed to have spent some time out of the spotlight recently, many fans are still pleased that this iconic ’90s couple is still happily together.

Jamie Cullum (5’5″) and Sophie Dahl (6′)

Another couple to prove that heights are overrated are the celebrity duo, Sophie Dahl and Jamie Callum. Sophie is a successful model and author, and Jamie is a singer and songwriter. The fact that Sophie is 6’0” and towers over Jamie at 5’5”, didn’t stop this couple from falling in love.

Sophie once said in an interview, “I think if we were both slightly more neurotic people, it would be crippling, but the fact of the matter is that we’re both happy. It’s cool.” The couple tied the knot in 2010 and now spend time as a family with their two daughters.

Vanessa Hudgens (5’1″) & Austin Butler (6′)

If Ashley Tisdale is on this list, we’d better include Vanessa Hudgens! The High School Musical star’s relationship with co-star,  Zac Efron, seemed to be working out well at first. Everyone was hoping for the Troy-Gabriella love team to play out in real life, too. But it didn’t last. The actress and singer went on to find love with a fellow musician. And just like Ashley Tisdale, she also ended up with a guy who’s more than 10 inches taller than her.

Fans are happy about Hudgens’ love life nowadays. Actor and singer Austin Butler captivated her immediately. They started dating in 2011 and have just recently split in 2020. Height differences aside, they may just be the cutest couple. Let’s hope this rumor isn’t true and they are going strong.

Kevin Hart (5’4″) and Eniko Parrish (5’7″)

Kevin Hart made a name for himself in comedic movies like ‘Soul Plane’, ‘Scary Movie 3’ and ‘Jumanji’. He continued to prove his giant reputation in Hollywood, with movies like ‘Get Hard’ and ‘The Secret Life of Pets’.

We’re sure that he became so respected in the industry, that not many people realized he is just 5’4”. We’re also certain that his height gap wasn’t an issue for his wife Eniko Parrish either. Still, being a comedy actor, Kevin sometimes makes light of the fact she is taller than him in interviews.

Kristen Bell (5’1″) and Dax Shepard (6’2″)

After meeting in 2007, Kirsten Bell and Dax Shepard have proved to be partners in crime in almost every way. While their glaring height difference of 5’1” to 6’2” does make them stand out in the crowd, this hasn’t stopped them from entertaining us all. In fact, they have collaborated on a few hilarious films together and satirical video remakes.

After the couple hit it off, they started dating and three years later announced their engagement. They have since featured together in hit movies like ‘Veronica Mars’, ‘Hit and Run’, ‘When in Rome’ and CHiPs.’ After delaying their wedding, Dax proposed again to Kristen on Twitter, and the pair are just as adorable on social media, as they are in Hollywood.

Sacha Baron Cohen (6’3″) and Isla Fisher (5’3″)

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher are another celebrity power couple, with a visible height difference. While Sacha is 6’3”, Isla just 5’3”. Still, when you see this couple on the red carpet, their incredible chemistry, shared humor and adorable love for each other is the only thing that matters.

While Sasha and Isla share plenty of similar interests and are both talented actors and comedians in their own right, they also had another issue which they had to work through. Sasha is Jewish, and before they married, Isla decided to convert to Judaism. The celebrity pair are now happily married, and it seems like nothing can get in their way.

Stacy Keibler (5’11”) and Jared Pobre (5’8″)

While Stacy Keibler had found success in her career as an actress, dancer, wrestler, and model, she is another star who followed a rocky path before finding love. Stacy had previously been in a high-profile relationship with Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor, George Clooney for 2 years. She was probably just as surprised as us when they broke up, and he married Amal Clooney.


While Stacy tried to move on, she started to date her long-time friend and business owner, Jared Pobre. While the pair started dating, Stacy continued her acting and pro-wrestling career and everything fell in place. Then Jared surprised her with a romantic beach wedding in Mexico, and are still happily married. The fact that she is 5’11” and he is 5’8” didn’t seem to matter.

Pharrell Williams (5’9″) and Helen Lasichanh (5’11”)

This celebrity couple first started out in the friend zone. Pharrell and Helen were good friends for two years before they fell for each other. In this case, the fact that Helen is three inches taller than him at 5’11’, worked in her favor. He later said, “She just stood out”.

The happy couple dated for five years, before deciding the tie the knot. Amazingly, they chose to make their wedding day stand out by wearing some unique outfits for the ceremony. The couple are still happily married and have now welcomed a son and triplets into the world.

Christine Taylor (5’6″) and Ben Stiller (5’7″)

In season 3 of the show, Christine Taylor made her guest appearance as Ross’s girlfriend, Bonnie. After a few episodes, though Rachel realizes that she still has feelings for Ross, and tells him she wants to get back together, so his relationship with Bonnie didn’t last too long.

Christine was famously known as Marcia Brady in the ‘Brady Bunch Movie’, and she has continued to carve a successful acting career for herself. One of her most memorable recent roles has been playing Sally Sitwell on Arrested Development.

Bella Hadid (5’9″) and The Weeknd (5’8″)

Bella Hadid is one of the biggest names in the fashion and modeling industry, and we’re sure her height has helped her on the catwalk. The Weeknd is also one of the biggest names in Showbiz, and the pair have been in an on-off relationship. Recently they have decided to give it another go, before again deciding to end things.


Even though The Weeknd is one inch smaller than her, we’re sure Bella loves her high heels too much to let them go. The Weeknd is also very supportive of her fashion career and has often been spotted sitting in the audience of her Victoria Secret Runway shows. Bella was also been spotted at some of the Weeknd’s concerts.

Zendaya (5’10”) and Tom Holland (5’8″)

Zendaya and Tom Holland are another showbiz duo who shared an on-screen romance, in the Marvel Spiderman movie. While they have yet to announce their relationship, they were happy to pose on the red carpet together at the premiere.


While Zendaya is 5’10” and Tom is 5’8”, it’s only when you see them on the red carpet that you notice their height difference. Still, they do make an adorable couple. So we’re sure a lot of Marvel fans would have been happy if the media speculation about them is true. However, at the beginning of 2020, it came out that she is dating Jacob Elordi.

Gigi Hadid (5’10”) and Zayn Malik (5’9″)

This gorgeous couple look made for each other on the red carpet, even with a slight height difference. Gigi famously appeared as Zayn’s love interest in his first solo music video, Pillowtalk, and it seems that their romance blossomed from there.


Gigi’s stands taller than Zayn at 5’10”, and we’re sure her height has helped her modeling career as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. We’re also sure it’s pretty cool for Zayn that he has a successful solo career, and is with a Victoria’s Secret model. The couple has had an on-off romance, but fans were happy that they seem to be back on again as of January 2020.

Joe Manganiello (6’5″) and Sofía Vergara (5’7″)

Since Alex Dunphy is on this list, let’s take a look at another Modern Family star. Anyone who watches the show will love Gloria Delgado-Pritchett. The role is portrayed by Colombian-American actress Sofia Vergara. She began dating Magic Mike star and Dungeons & Dragons fan and player, Joe Manganiello.

The two began dating in 2014. After six years together, they announced their engagement during Christmas. In 2015, they said their vows and began a new life together as a married couple. The height difference wasn’t an issue for them at all. Vergara is 5’7”, while Manganiello is a full ten inches taller than her, at 6’5”. However, with a love like theirs, height will never be a hurdle.

Paul Bettany (6’3″) and Jennifer Connelly (5’7″)

If you’re an avid fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’re pretty familiar with Paul Bettany. He is the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., and eventually became Vision. He starred in popular films, like Da Vinci Code, Dogville, Inkheart, Legion, Creation, A Beautiful Mind. Bettany was fortunate to have met the love of his life in the same industry.

Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly met when they starred in A Beautiful Mind. However, it seems it just wasn’t the right time back then. They were in other relationships while they were filming. Bettany admitted that Connelly was his crush, ever since he saw her in Labyrinth. Soon after, he realized that his crush was actually full-blown love, and he contacted her. In 2003, they got married in Scotland, and are happy with their children, Stellan and Agnes.

Eliza Dushku (5’5″) and Rick Fox (6’6″)

Elisha Dushku’s height is a respectable 5’5”. But her husband, Rick Fox, is just soaring at 6’7”. Elisha Dushku is well-known because of her roles in popular films like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, This Boy’s Life, and Wrong Turn. Her voice was also featured in some video games.

Source: Pinterest

Dushku began dating former LA Lakers player and actor, Rick Fox, in 2009. A year after, it was confirmed that the couple was already living together. In 2014, it was made known to the public that they had separated.

Amy Poehler (5’5″) and Will Arnett (6’2″)

Amy Poehler is a deservedly famous comedian, best known for her role in the sitcom, Parks and Recreation, and as a cast member in Saturday Night Live. She also starred as the voice of Joy in the hilarious animation, Inside Out. It seems only natural for a comedian to fall for a fellow comedian. And this is exactly how things worked out for Poehler.

Source: Pinterest

The funny lady’s match was met in the form of Will Arnett. He was cast in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, took voice roles in Ratatouille, Despicable Me, and, of course, Bojack Horseman. In 2003, this couple married. Since then, they’ve worked together on films and animations. They have two sons, Archie and Abel. However, after nine years of love, they informed their friends and family that they were separating. Another one of those love stories with a rather sad ending.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (5’5″) and Jason Statham (5’10”)

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rose to notoriety as one of the infamous Victoria’s Secret Angels. She is also the face of other famous brands, like Burberry and Marks & Spencer. From modeling, she’s turned to roles in Transformer: Dark of the Moon and Mad Max: Fury Road. Behind the angelic appearance of the top model, lies a feisty actress. Feisty and tall—the actress and model, at 5’9”, towers over her action star partner.

Source: Pinterest

Since 2010, Rosie has been in a relationship with action megastar, Jason Statham. The actor announced in 2016 that he would be marrying his statuesque sweetheart. Later on, they welcomed Jack Oscar Statham as the newest member of their family.

Stephanie Seymour (5’10”) and Azzedine Alaia (5’2″)

Stephanie Seymour also served as the face of Victoria’s Secret and Playboy. She even authored a book for models, professional and aspiring ones alike. She wrote Stephanie Seymour’s Beauty Secrets for Dummies in 1998, and snagged a spot in the North American FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women list, for 2000.

Source: Pinterest

Steeped in fashion, it’s no wonder Seymour fell in love with a couturier and shoe designer, Azzedine Alaia. They’re just a perfect match! At first, the 7-inch height difference seems like it might get in the way. But this couple’s time together was sadly cut short, however, as Alaia passed away in 2017.

Slavica (5’10”) and Bernie Ecclestone (5’3″)

As former CEO of the Formula One Group, Bernie Ecclestone has a whole lot of stock in the world of business. After stepping down from the role, he stayed in the company as chairman emeritus and adviser. To put it simply, Bernie Ecclestone has more riches than anyone heart could desire.

Source: Pinterest

The business mogul has been married four times. One of his wives was Slavica Ecclestone, a multi-lingual Croatian international model whose clients included the likes of Armani. While working with a Formula One project, she met Bernie and, despite the vast differences that stretched between them—a 28-year-gap and foot of height—love blossomed between them. Slavica stands at more than 6 feet, while Bernie peeps just a few inches over the 5-foot mark. Even if he tiptoed, he couldn’t come close to matching the model’s epic height. However, that barely matters anymore, since they split up in 2009.

Carla Bruni (5’10”) and Nicolas Sarkozy (5’5″)

Italian-French singer Carla Bruni has decidedly mesmerized former French President, Nicola Sarkozy. They met at a dinner party in 2007. At the time, the president had only recently divorced his ex-wife, so he and Bruni took things slow. The following year, the loved up pair were married in Paris. Sarkozy was Bruni’s first husband, while she was his third wife. In 2011, they welcomed their daughter Giulia.

Source: Pinterest

The attitude toward the height difference between this couple is a little different. It’s rumored that the president is actually quite sensitive about it. Whenever they visit other states, Bruni wears flats. It’s not much of a secret, now that Sarkozy wears heeled shoes to try to square up with his wife’s height.

Daena E. Title (5’9″) and Jason Alexander (5’5″)

You probably know Jason Alexander as George Costanza in Seinfeld, and his sleazy appearance as Phillip Stuckey, in Pretty Woman. However, the talented actor has also busted out a bunch of lead roles in Broadway musicals. He married actress Daena Title back in 1982 with not a care in the world, given that she breezes through life a good four inches higher than he does.

Source: Pinterest

Unlike many Hollywood couples who are divorced before you even realized they were married, Alexander and Title are staying true to their wedding vows. Just as they have been for the last 35 years. With more than three decades together and two children—Gabriel and Noah—, that’s a feat of love that dwarfs any concerns about the height difference.

Victoria Beckham (5’4″) and David Beckham (6′)

Who wouldn’t cheer for this handsome English football player? David Beckham played for several teams when he was still an active player of the sport. Before he retired, he was credited as one of the best midfielders in the history of football. But Beckham didn’t just win in football, he scored big in life.

Source: Pinterest

In 1997, he started dating Victoria Adams, or Posh Spice from the legendary Spice Girls. It was a great scoop for the media, who doggedly followed the love story of the two. Their relationship was quite literally impossible to hide. At 6’0”, Beckham stands out quite a bit, especially with wee Posh standing next to him. Their romance brought them to the altar in 1999, and they are now parents to three sons and one daughter.

Courtney Mazza (5’6″) and Mario Lopez (5’10”)

This couple only has a four-inch difference. Not much, right? Why would these two good-looking people care about such a small height difference? Mario Lopez is a TV host and actor. He is popularly known as AC Slater, from Saved by the Bell. Having been through quite a few marriages in the past, he finally realized that his meant-to-be was right there waiting for him in the same industry.

Source: Pinterest

In 2008, he met Broadway star, Courtney Mazza. She is a marvelously talented dancer and actress. They ran into each other during the production of Broadway musical, A Chorus Line. After four years, they got married. Now, they enjoy being a mom and a dad to Gia and Dominic. So it seems Lopez was saved, not so much by the bell as by Broadway!

Candace Cameron Bure (5’2″) and Valeri Bure (5’10”)

Candace Cameron Bure was DJ Tanner, in the Full House series. She also starred in St. Elsewhere, Growing Pains, and Some Kind of Wonderful. She even won third place with Mark Ballas, in Dancing with the Stars, season 18. Clearly, Candace Cameron is a pretty busy woman!

Source: Pinterest

In 1996, she met Russian-American National Hockey League right winger, Valeri Bure. Cameron’s Full House co-actor, Dave Coulier, took on the role of their match-making fairy godfather. He introduced them at a charity hockey game, and the rest is history. They’ve been married since 1996 and, over the years, made three little additions to their little family: two sons and a daughter. Meaning the Bure team is now complete with Natasha, Lev, and Maksim.

Miley Cyrus (5’5″) and Liam Hemsworth (6’3″)

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s romance first began back in 2009. They both starred together in the movie, ‘The Last Song’, and while their height difference was visible, their on-screen chemistry was pretty electric too. Soon after, the pair announced they were a couple.

Still, their path to love didn’t run so smoothly, and the showbiz couple got caught in an on-off dating trap for years. During one of their longest breakups, Miley released her album Wrecking Ball. Late in the summer of 2019, the two announced that they were splitting up. On August 10, Miley and Liam announced they were separating. As of January 2020, according to TMZ, the divorce has been finalized, with a judge having already signed the paperwork. It’s officially over.

Tiffani Thiessen (5’5″) and Brady Smith (5’9″)

Another cast member from Saved by the Bell! Tiffani Thiessen also starred in the sitcom, playing Kelly Kapowski. She’s also that pretty Valerie Malone, from Beverly Hills. Later in life, she met an actor from Houston, Texas, who became her other half.

Brady Smith graduated from Stephen Austin State University, in 1994. In 2005, he married Tiffani and has been enjoying married life ever since. Their lives changed in a great way when they were blessed with their two children—a daughter named Harper, who was born in 2010, followed by their son, Holt, in 2015.

Hilaria Baldwin (5’4″) and Alec Baldwin (6′)

Alec Baldwin is an American comedian, host, actor, and writer who comes from a renowned family of actors. You might have seen him on 30 Rock, the Mission Impossible series or perhaps from his remarkable portrayal of Donald Trump, on Saturday Night Live.

Source: Pinterest

In 2011, Baldwin dated Hilaria Thomas, an actress and yoga instructor from Manhattan. In the early days of dating, they lived in Greenwich Village and, after a year of loved up happiness, they got engaged. Two months later, they were on their way down the aisle in New York City. They’re now happily married with a daughter and three sons: Carmen, Rafael, Leonardo Angel Charles, and Romeo Alejandro David.

Adam Levine (6′) and Behati Prinsloo (5’11”)

Technically speaking, Behati is one inch taller than her husband, Adam Levine. While her height has also been useful for her career as a Victoria’s Secret model, we’re sure when she met the Maroon 5 frontman, height wasn’t even a factor.

Photo Credit: Debby Wong /

In fact, the couple first met in 2011 at a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and fell head over heels for each other. After a whirlwind romance, the couple announced their engagement in 2013. The couple is now happily married, with two kids. We also love how Behati is also not afraid to wear her killer heels with Adam on the red carpet.
