Celebrity Couples With Some Major Height Gaps



Chris Bosh and Adrienne Williams

Sure, these two are a bit vertically mismatched, but that shouldn’t get in the way of true love! Clearly, retired 6’10″ NBA star Chris Bosh didn’t think height was an issue when he married 4’9″ Adrienne Williams. Think that’s a big gap? Wait until you see Shaq!

Clare Grant and Seth Green

These two are only 4 inches apart, but when you throw heels into the mix, the difference escalates quickly! Fortunately, the difference doesn’t seem to phase either one of these lovebirds.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

These two had a whirlwind romance in 2009, and soon after, they both starred in their own reality show. Khloe and Lamar didn’t end up making it, but the two remained friends after the divorce. Who knows, maybe the 12-inch height difference ended up being too much!

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban

Nicole and Keith are only an inch apart, but sadly for Keith, Nicole really enjoys wearing high heels. When she does that, there is a significant mismatch! Fortunately, these two are adorable enough to get away with it.

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth

Reese seems to have a thing for tall guys, and her current marriage to Jim Toth fits that narrative. Despite a height difference of over a foot, these two have been happily married since 2011.

Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise

After meeting on the set of Days of Thunder, these two ended up getting married in 1990. It’s possible Tom just couldn’t stand the height difference, since the couple ended up getting a divorce in 2001.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

Miley isn’t extremely short, but her fiancé stands 6’3″, leaving a 10-inch height gap. It’s no surprise that Miley really likes to wear heels when the two are out in public.

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal

Clearly, Reese enjoys looking up at her men. She’s only 5’1″ though, so it’s not as if she has a choice with that. Regardless, Jake and Reese had a 10-inch vertical discrepancy, so she certainly doesn’t mind.

Christina Ricci and Owen Benjamin

Christina and her comedian ex-boyfriend made a pretty cute couple. They did have a 17-inch height gap though. Frankly, it wouldn’t be surprising if the gap was just too big.

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise

It’s not a huge height difference, but it seems pretty clear that Tom Cruise is not as tall as he claims to be. Still, even if Tom and Katie are only two inches apart, heels tend to exaggerate that a lot!

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

These two were talked about a lot when they first became a thing. Sadly, their love was not to be, but never fear! The internet shall make sure that their vertical challenges are remembered for time immemorial!

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

The marriage of Kim K and Hump was destined to fail from the start. The two had an 18-inch difference, but this was still more than the amount of days that they were married. Kim went on to gain more fame, and Kris’s careers was ruined.

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden

Despite their height difference, these two are married and still very much in love. It’s been two years since they got hitched, so maybe it is possible to overcome the gap!

Helen Lasichanh and Pharrell Williams

Pharrell claims to be just two inches shorter than his bride, but we beg to differ. Still, the two have been happy together for years, so a bit of a fib to the media doesn’t seem to hurt anything.

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet

While Jason is much nicer than his onscreen character, Khal Drogo, he is obviously just as tall. This couple has had to overcome a vast height difference, but with eight years of marriage under their belts, it seems that they’ve been successful.

Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum

With one of the biggest female to male height differences on this list, one would suspect that these two would have broken up like most of the others. However, Sophie and Jamie have now been happily married for seven years now!

Peter Dinklage and Erica Schmidt

While Dinklage said that his dwarfism made him mad as a youth, he has clearly made the best of his situation. He’s had success in his career, and he’s been happily married to Erica Schmidt since 2005!

Stacy Keibler and Jared Pobre

Stacy’s height came in handy as a WWE wrestler, but she is now significantly taller than her CEO husband. The tech mogul met his wife long before they were married, and they were actually friends for years before they dated.

Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond

The talented comedian is only 5’4″, but she towers over her husband Jeff Richmond. The two met on the show 30 Rock, and were married in 2001.

Fergie and Josh Duhamel

Fergie and Josh met when the Black Eyed Peas made an appearance on Josh’s show, and the two were married three years later. Despite the 13-inch difference, the two have been happily hitched for nearly a decade.

Gerard Pique and Shakira

Shakira may be a powerful singer, but she is only a little over five feet tall! In contrast, her soccer playing boyfriend stands a lofty 6’6″. When she stands next to him, she definitely seems smaller than her voice.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

With an 11-inch height advantage over Kourtney, Disick always has to look down on her. He probably would if the heights were reversed, but that’s another story. Though the two are no longer together, there’s a certain TV show that keeps them linked.

Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson

The former NFL tight end stands a little over 6’3″. Jessica Simpson is over a foot shorter than him. Still, the two have been happily married for years now, and they have two children together.

Shaquille O’Neal and Nicole Alexander

The Shaqtus towers over most people, but dating 5’2″ Nicole doesn’t seem like the most brilliant choice… Nobody should be surprised that this match didn’t last. A two-foot height difference is a bit much…

Salma Hayek and Edward Norton

These two look about as great together as any celebrity couple could, even with such a height difference of 10 inches! It’s a major gap, but who cares so long as they have mutual respect and love for each other.

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard

MAJOR power couple here….even with the 11 inch height difference! Hopefully she looks up to him in more ways than just in stature.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy

Mary-Kate looks like Olivier’s small child next to him. After all, there’s a staggering 13 inch gap between them!

Eniko Parrish and Kevin Hart

The famous comedian is almost as known for his short height as he is for his stand up, but the 5’4″ Hart sure didn’t help things when he started dating the 5’7″ Eniko Parrish.

Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen

The 6’3″ Sacha is pretty known for his tall height, almost as much as he’s known for his crazy movie roles. When he married somebody a full foot shorter than him, though, it just made him look all the more taller!

Katy Perry and Russell Brand

There’s a five inch difference between these two superstars, but when both of you are pretty out there crazy, do you really care about such a height gap?

Kate Middleton and Prince William

Even their height difference of seven inches couldn’t keep these two from falling in love and having the royal wedding of the century!

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden

Proof that even a seven inch height gap has nothing to do with a sturdy relationship — these two have been married since 2006 and have two kids together.

Mollie King and David Gandy

Before their eventual split up, these two were among the most talked-about couples in existence….and not just because of the 10 inches of air that existed between their heads!

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.

There may be 11 inches between their height, but there isn’t 11 inches between them. They’re the enduring Hollywood couple that’s been together for over 15 years now.
