As Paula Abdul once said to Simon Cowell at the "America's Got Talent" judges table: opposites attract. We guess that's how all these couples got together. Because these famous pairs each consist of one tiny little shrimpkin and one tally tall-tall. Check out these celebrity couples with huge height differences...
Lisa Bonet And Jason Momoa
While Jason Momoa towers over his wife Lisa Bonet by a feet and two inches, they do have common ground over their professions and roles. They're both actors, you see. And when Momoa plays Aquaman, he enters "a different world". Which is, you see, the name of the show Bonet is famous for. You see.
Shaquille O'Neal And Nicole Alexander
Shaquille O'Neal couldn't get any hoops from the free throw line. But he got Hoopz, aka Nicole Alexander, from the VH1 reality show line! She, at 5'2", won Flavor Of Love and I Love Money. And he, at 7'1", won a bunch of basketball awards or whatever, who cares, bring back Flavor Of Love! It rules!
Shakira And Gerard Pique
Their heights don't lie. Latin-pop sensation Shakira is 5'2". Her beau, mega-talented footballer Gerard Pique, is 6'4". There's a she wolf in her closet... and hopefully, also, an apple box!
Mary-Kate Olsen And Olivier Sarkozy
Actor/fashion icon/twin Mary-Kate Olsen stands at 5'2". And her husband, financial guru Olivier Sarkozy, stands at 6'3". Given their height differences, it would be hard for them to get into identity-switching shenanigans. But that doesn't mean we wouldn't like to see them try.
Khloe Kardashian And Tristan Thompson
While Khloe "Keeping Up With The" Kardashian and Tristan "Basketball Player" Thompson are currently, ahem, in the woods, we can still reminisce about their halcyon days. No matter what, we'll always have the fact that Kardashian stands at 5'10" while Thompson stands at 6'9".
Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth
He came in like a wrecking ball. He stands around six foot three tall.
Yes! Now that's a fun rhyme! And, actor Liam Hemsworth is still together with Miley Cyrus, who stands at 5'5"! We redeemed ourselves!
Seth Green And Clare Grant
Birds of a feather flock together. And when that flock of birds happen to include Robot Chicken and all the nerdy ephemera within, sparks fly. The dork chic couple we're talking about, Seth Green and Clare Grant, have a charming height difference awakening in between them, too. Green stands at 5'4", and Grant stands taller than she seems at 5'7".
Will And Jada Pinkett Smith
You know what the difference is between other different-heighted couples and the Smiths? They make this look good. Will pursues his happyness at 6'2", whereas Jada Pinkett sets it off at an even five feet.
Kim Kardashian And Kris Humphries
While Kim "Break The Internet" Kardashian wound up settling down with Kanye "I Am A God" West, we can still reminisce about her companionship with Kris "I'm A Basketball Player Too" Humphries. He reaches up to 6'9", while she chills out at 5'3".
Ashley Tisdale And Christopher French
Ashley Tisdale and Christopher French are musical as heck. She makes bubbly pop music. He makes weird alternative electronic music. And Tisdale's film High School Musical, as we all know, was named after their height difference: she at 5'3" and he at 6'4". We're all in this together!
Hayden Panettiere And Wladimir Klitschko
Standing a cool five feet even, actor Hayden Panettiere is an average-sized "hero" for snagging 6'6" boxer Wladimir Klistchko. We're not sure what hits harder: an actual jab from Klistchko or a verbal jab from Panettiere's character on Nashville.
Christina Ricci And Owen Benjamin
Do you think the 5'1" actor Christina Ricci got engaged to the 6'6" comedian Owen Benjamin because his height shares a number with one of her breakout films, Buffalo '66? No, because that's insane? Well, it's also insane that Ricci broke off their engagement after two months and Benjamin turned into an alt-right conspiracy theorist, so... We're believing it!
Mila Kunis And Ashton Kutcher
Hanging out. Down the street. Our heights are different. But our love is sweet. Did you know those were the original lyrics to That '70s Show, where married couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher met? It's true. Don't Google it. Anyway, Kunis is at 5'4" and Kutcher is at 6'2".
Blake Griffin And Kendall Jenner
Standing at 6'10", basketball star Blake Griffin has had a rocky few years. He was the star of the Los Angeles Clippers and boyfriend to the 5'10" influencer impressario Kendell Jenner. Now, he is neither. Talk abut getting Piston.
Chris Hemsworth And Elsa Pataky
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky: Now that's a couple that Ragna-rocks! Ha-ha! You see, this is a joke based both on the 6'3" Chris Hemsworth film Thor: Ragnarock, and his relationship to the 5'3" actor Elsa Pataky. We hope you understand and appreciate the joke.
Salma Hayek And Edward Norton
Did you know Salma Hayek and Edward Norton dated? And not just from dusk 'til dawn: for four friggin' years! How'd we miss this? Anyway, the one-time Incredible Hulk stands at 6 feet, while the one-time Frida Kahlo stands at 5'2".
Sarah Michelle Gellar And Freddie Prinze Jr.
Like, zoinks, Scoob! Sarah Michelle Gellar, aka Daphne, stands at 5'4". Her husband Freddie Prinze Jr., aka Fred, stands at 6'1". And the ghost of Crumbler's Theme Park wound up being... Old Man Jenkins?!
Fergie And Josh Duhamel
Fergalicious definition make them boys go loco. She stands around 5'4" and Duhamel is at six quatro.
A fun rhyme, right? Unfortunately, it was not fun enough to keep singer Fergie and actor Josh Duhamel together. They separated in 2017. If only... if only we had come up with a funner rhyme.
Jay Cutler And Kristin Cavallari
One of the members of this couple played games professionally, navigating difficult situations with equal parts grace and brute strength. The other member is football player Jay Cutler. He stands at 6'3", while his wife, The Hills star Kristin Cavallari, stands at 5'3".
Deryck Whibley And Ari Cooper
Sum 41 isn't just the name of the band Deryck Whibley fronts. It's also the answer to the question: How much taller is his model wife Ari Cooper than am? Haha, a small joke! But in truth, she is quite a bit taller than him. She stands at 5'11", while he stands at 5'4".
Tom Cruise And Nicole Kidman
The OG "celebrity couple with a height difference everyone talked about." It was such a part of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's narrative that, when they divorced, Kidman quipped publicly that she could "wear heels now." And yet, in reality, Kidman is only four inches taller than Cruise. Sorry to Destroyer your memories.
Sacha Baron Cohen And Isla Fisher
Did you know whenever Borat said "My wife," he was technically referring to actor Isla Fisher? That's right, she and Sacha Baron Cohen have been married since 2010. She stands at 5'3", while he stands at 6'3". Though in fairness, he might be pretending to stand at 6'3" as some kind of alt-comedy character stunt.
Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard
Do you want to wed a tall man? Kristen Bell of Frozen's answer? Yes! So she married actor/director Dax Shepard, who stands at 6'2" to her 5'1". And if this height difference bothers any of you reading, our advice would be to... drop the matter. Huh? "Let it go?" Why would we phrase it like that?
Carmelo And La La Anthony
All-star basketball player Carmelo Anthony almost had the coolest name ever. Until he married Alanie Nicole Vazquez, aka VJ La La. And she became: La La Anthony. And no one will ever have a cooler name than this. At least he's got height over her, standing at 6'8" to her 5'6".
Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond
Jeff Richmond is more of a behind-the-scenes Hollywood guy. So you may not know that he’s married to Tina Fey, who’s 5-foot-4. According to Google, he’s anywhere from 5 feet tall to 5-foot-5, but he looks so much shorter standing next to her, it’s uncanny.
Reese Witherspoon And Jim Toth
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth look so cute together. The pintsize beauty is only 5-foot-1, which makes her a foot shorter than her 6-foot-1 husband, Jim Toth. But they both proved that crazy height differences aren’t a deal breaker whatsoever.
Katie Holmes And Tom Cruise
Although they’re no longer together, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise made and adorbable couple. But they obviously had a lot of differences. She’s 5-foot-, and he’s only 5-foot-7. But we’re pretty positive that their height difference wasn’t the main reason they couldn’t see eye to eye.
Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson
Unlike their “Twilight” characters, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson did not live happily ever after. Pattinson is 6-foot-1 and she’s 5-foot-6, but obviously, those 7 seven inches weren’t the only reason why these two lovebirds called it quits.
Sophie Dahl And Jamie Cullum
It's not always the man who’s taller than the woman, just look at Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum. He’s 5-foot-5 and she’s an impressive 6-foot tall. But they make up for it with their combined elegance and their mutual love for books. And if Dahl ever feels like wearing high heels, she goes right ahead because her incredible hubby doesn’t mind.
Eniko Parrish And Kevin Hart
Eniko Parrish is 5-foot-7 while her comedian hubby Kevin Hart is a mere 5-foot-4. But these two look like two peas in a pod. Even with the major 3-inch height difference, (plus a few extra inches when Parrish wears high heels) you can clearly see that these two are made for each other.
Kate Middleton And Prince William
Prince William towers the Duchess of Cambridge by a few inches. She’s 5-foot-9 and he’s 6-foot-3. But they’re both giants in their own way because they’re part of the British monarchy. So we doubt tabloids care about a measly height difference.
Jessica Simpson And Eric Johnson
Jessica Simpson looks up to her husband; not that she has any choice. At 5-foot-3, she’s a foot shorter than her 6-foot-3 NFL player husband, Eric Johnson. But she makes up for it with her huge personality and incredible smile.
LeBron James And Savannah Brinson
LeBron James is a whole foot taller than his beautiful wife Savannah Brinson. She’s 5-foot-7, while LeBron stands an impressive 6-foot-8 tall. But he never looks down on his pintsized wife, because she’s his equal in all things that matter. She was his high school sweetheart and now the mother of his three children, Bryce, Zhuri, and LeBron James Jr.
Brian Austin Green And Megan Fox
Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox have had their ups and downs, much like their height difference. He’s 6-foot tall and she’s only 5-foot-4. It seemed that the two were headed for a divorce. Last time we checked, Fox was dating Shia LaBeouf in November 2018. But then these two crazy kids had a third child and decided to give their marriage another shot.
Vanessa Hudgens And Austin Butler
The “High School Musical” goddess is almost a foot shorter than her boyfriend Austin Butler. He’s 6-foot-0 and she’s only 5-foot-2. But she obviously doesn’t mind looking up to find the hunk smiling down on her whenever he looks into her eyes.
Levi Meaden And Ariel Winter
The Canadian actor from “Pacific Rim Uprising” is almost a foot taller than his “Modern Family” girlfriend, Ariel Winter. She’s 5-foot-1 and he’s 5-foot-11. But they’re totally inseparable and in love. In fact, Meaden has gushed over how “sexy and brilliant” his girlfriend is, and often posts loving messages on social media about the beautiful starlet.
Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima
Kourtney is no longer dating her model ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima. They did have a run-in a few months after their breakup and it seemed pretty amicable. But their differences are probably towering, and we’re not just saying that because she’s 5-foot tall and he’s 6-foot-2.
Peter Dinklage and Erica Schmidt
“Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage didn’t allow his achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism, stop him from pursuing acting or finding true love. He’s 4-foot-5 and his wife, Erica Schmidt, who’s a theater director, is 5-foot-6.
Natalie Portman And Benjamin Millepied
Choreographer Benjamin Millepied is 5-foot-10 and his wife, actress Natalie Portman, (who recently launched an online acting class for aspiring actors) is a mere 5-foot-3. But you can probably find them cozying up to each other whenever they’re posing on the red carpet, as clearly, these two are very much in love.
Eva Longoria And Tony Parker
5-foot-2 Eva Longoria decided to go big by marrying the uber tall Tony Parker, who's 6-foot-2. But alas, the differences between these two were as great as their height gap and the two eventually called it quits in 2011, after a long and dragged out divorce.
Eliza Dushku And Rick Fox
Former Buffy star Eliza Dushku dated ex basketball player Rick Fox from 2010 to 2014. He towered the 5-foot-5 actress, because he’s 6-foot-7 tall. But Dushku eventually moved on to Peter Palandjian, whom she married in 2018.
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez
The sensational and statuesque J Lo seems to have found true love in former professional baseball player, Alex Rodriguez. The smoking hot couple have recently gotten engaged, and you know that Lopez doesn’t mind that he’s 6-foot-3 and she’s 5-foot-5, because evidently, their passion makes up for the height difference.
Chris Bosh And Adrienne Williams
Chris Bosh is a former basketball player, and anyone can tell you that you need to be really tall to shoot some hoops in the NFL. But Bosh doesn’t have anything to worry about. He’s 6-foot-11 and while his wife, is only 5-foot tall, she is undoubtedly a huge inspiration for him.
Lily Allen And Sam Cooper
Singer-songwriter Lily Allen has to contend with the fact that her ex-husband Sam Cooper has moved on a month after their divorce was finalized, (according to rumors!) But back when they were together, Lily, who’s only 5-foot-2 probably had a sore neck looking up at Cooper, who’s 6-foot tall.
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds
ScarJo tied the knot with Ryan Reynolds in 2008, but the marriage didn’t last. In 2011, they divorced and moved on. But the nine-year age gap between them wasn’t their only difference. He´s 6-foot-2 and she’s 5-foot-4. Luckily, Johansson is now living with Colin Jost, while Reynolds is too busy stealing wife Blake Lively’s moisturizer.
Avril Lavigne And Brody Jenner
Pseudo punk rock star Avril Lavigne and reality TV star Brody Jenner managed to stick together for two tumultuous years before things got too complicated. She’s 5-foot-1 and he’s 5-foot-10. But their height difference was probably the least of their troubles.
Kaley Cuoco And Ryan Sweeting
“Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco and tennis player Ryan Sweeting went through a messy divorce. He even asked for spousal support, and according to Cuoco, he even ruined the idea of marriage. She told Cosmo, “I honestly thought I wouldn’t get married again. My ex ruined that word for me.” Obviously, these two were worlds apart, and we’re not just saying that because he’s 6-foot-5 and she’s 5-foot-6.
Hafthor Bjornsson and Kelsey Henson
Hafthor "The Mountain" Bjornsson made a strong impression on Game Of Thrones. And his wife, fitness model Kelsey Henson, conquered that mountain. Even though she's a spry 5'2" and he's a thick 6'9". Winter is coming... and we imagine they're going to be snuggling, as a married couple, throughout.
Lady Gaga And Taylor Kinney
Lady Gaga, who recently won an Oscar for her the song “Shallow” from the film “A Star Is Born,” once dated Taylor Kinney, who’s 5-foot-11. That’s 10 inches taller than Gaga who is 5’1. But the two eventually split amicably.
Slavica and Bernie Ecclestone
British head honcho and business magnate, Bernie Ecclestone might be pretty tiny at 5-foot-2, but he certainly has a huge fortune and equally big self-esteem. His net worth is a whopping $3.1 billion, which his ex, 6-foot-2 Slavica Ecclestone, probably appreciated after their divorce.
