Race, religion, political association, gender, age, and so on. None of these are even a contributing factor when it comes to matters of the heart. Love doesn’t care about any of those things and that’s pretty remarkable. So why should love care if you’re taller or shorter than your other half? That would be a rhetorical question, of course. Naturally we pulled together celebrity couples who have a huge height difference – and guess what? It doesn’t bother them in the slightest. Love is love, folks. That’s the bottom line.
Clare Grant and Seth Green
Sure there is only a four inch difference between Clare Grant and Seth Green, but it is a distinct one. Especially when Clare is donning some heels. Poor Seth doesn’t stand a chance, we’re sure he’s heard the short jokes a thousand times.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
Name me a more popular and loved female celebrity. No? Didn’t think so. Reese Witherspoon is more than just a Hollywood star, she is a legend in every sense of the word. Standing at 5’1″, she is clearly shorter than her 6’1″ husband, Jim Toth.
Eniko Parrish and Kevin Hart
We’re not joking around here, but Eniko Parrish and Kevin Hart have a mere three inch height difference. However as soon as Eniko throws on some heels, she towers over the comedian. It’s cute.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
Hear us out please! We know that there is just a ~one~ inch gap between these two. We get it, it’s not HUGE. However whenever Nicole Kidman, which is always, slips on some high heels, Keith Urban is clearly the hobbit in that scenario.
Peter Dinklage and Erica Schmidt
Oh, come on. You had to have seen this one coming. Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage married the theatre director Erica Schmidt in 2005, together they have two children. And yes, 13 inches separates these two, but that’s all. They are wildly in love!
Christina Ricci and Owen Benjamin
There is no doubt that Christina Ricci and Owen Benjamin make a cute couple! The actress and comedian have a 17…I repeat, 17(!) inch height difference. Whoa.
Helen Lasichanh and Pharrell Williams
Two inches is all that separates singer Pharrell Williams and longtime girlfriend Helen Lasichanh. However whenever they’re out in public, Helen always seems to be towering over her partner. It’s probably the heels.
Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum
Writer and model Sophie Dahl is 6’0″ while her husband is 5’5″, but that doesn’t bother these two in the slightest. And why would it? No one said that women couldn’t be taller than men. Although I think we’ve proven that already.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy
13 inches comes in-between Mary-Kate Olsen (5’2″) and Olivier Sarkozy (6’3″)! The duo began dating in 2012 and exchanged vows in 2015.
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise
From 2005 to 2012, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise were the celebrity couple everyone couldn’t get enough of. Especially when their daughter, Suri, was born in 2006. Now, there is only a two inch difference between the stars but it truly looks like it’s more.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Talk about a flashback. After dating for a year, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries tied the knot. However after just 72 days of marriage, the pair divorced. At 5’3″, Kim K had an 18 inch height difference with the NBA player. Those 18 inches are one-quarter as many days as the two were married. Interesting.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
While Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are no longer together, at least we’ll always have the Twilight franchise to hold us over. Stewart and Pattinson had an eight inch height difference and still managed to look cute as buttons.
Salma Hayek and Edward Norton
Back in another lifetime it seems, actors Salma Hayek and Edward Norton were once an item. Hayek, 5’2″, seemed so tiny compared to Norton’s 6′ frame.
Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom
12 inches separated Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom. The duo were married from 2009 to 2016 – and remember that they only married a month after meeting! We even got a glimpse into their marriage on Khloé & Lamar.
Fergie and Josh Duhamel
Next up are Fergie and Josh Duhamel. Judging from the photo, can you take a guess as to how many inches separate the two? It looks slightly deceiving. Well, Fergie stands at 5’4″ whereas her husband is 6’4″. Yup, 12 inches!
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
Ugh, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are #couplegoals. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you the same. If they don’t, they’re living under a rock. Anyways, Bell and Shepard boast of a 11 inch height difference. Either way, they’re beyond adorable and that’s the bottom line.
Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa
As far as celebrity couples go, Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa are King and Queen. At 5’2″, Bonet is 14 inches shorter than her husband, Jason. They have two children together, Lola and Nakoa-Wolf.
Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen
2002 is when actress Isla Fisher met English comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. Two years later they were engaged and in 2010, they tied the knot. Together they have two daughters. Oh, they have an adorable 12 inch height difference!
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Another celebrity couple that oozes #couplegoals is Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher. And I’ll fight anyone who disagrees. Kidding…kind of. At 5’4″, Kunis is indeed a shorty standing next to her 6’2″ husband. I think that almost makes them even cuter together.
Nicole Alexander and Shaquille O’Neal
Everyone knows that Shaquille O’Neal is tall. Like super tall. 7’1″ to be exact. But just how short is his girlfriend? Glad you asked. Nicole Alexander stands at just 5’2″ which means these two enjoy a 23 inch height difference. 23! WHOA is an understatement.
Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise
Yup, Nicole Kidman makes the list again. It’s the heels, we’re telling you. Kidman and Tom Cruise had a four inch height difference back when they were together.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Actor Will Smith is taller than his wife by 14 inches! Actually, the Smith couple might even be the most powerful couple in Hollywood and when you’ve been together for 20 years, it makes sense.
Kate Middleton and Prince William
From one powerful couple to another. Kate Middleton and Prince William are GOALS, people. These two are perfect and it’s not just because they’re royalty. Okay, maybe it is. The Princess stands at 5’9″ while Prince William is 6’3″. Not the biggest difference especially at Kate often sports heels.
Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari
At 6’3″, retired football quarterback Jay Cutler stands a foot taller than wife Kristin Cavallari, 5’3″. The duo have been together since 2010 and have three kids together.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.
Call me crazy but Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are a perfect couple. Just perfect. While filming the 1997 film I Know What You Did Last Summer, these two lovebirds met and the rest is history. Even if Gellar is wearing heels, she doesn’t come close to topping 6’1″ Freddie. How cute.
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson
Singer and actress Jessica Simpson stands at 5’3″, meaning she is a whole foot shorter than her husband Eric Johnson. She has been with the retired NFL tight end since May 2010.
Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko
Let me just get this out of the way, I absolutely adore Hayden Panettiere. The actress, singer and activist has been married to the Ukrainian former professional boxer since 2009. They have a daughter together. And as you can tell from the photo, there is a serious height difference between the two! A whole 18 inches to be exact.
La La Anthony and Carmelo Anthony
At 5’6″, La La Anthony is much shorter than her 6’8″ husband Carmelo Anthony. Although it makes for some pretty cute photo opportunities.
Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth
As far as massive Hollywood stars right now, Chris Hemsworth is at the top of that list. The Marvel actor is 6’3″ while his actress and model wife Elsa Pataky is 5’3″. Do we need to point out how perfect they look together? Didn’t think so.
Savannah Brinson and Lebron James
Don’t be surprised to see that another NBA star makes the list. LeBron James stands at over a foot taller than his 5’7″ wife Savannah Brinson, meaning he’s a cool 6’8″. Dang, that’s tall.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
The Beverly Hills, 90210 star Brian Austin Green has been dating actress Megan Fox since 2004. Together they have three children. Green is 6’0″ while Fox is merely 5’4″.
Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman
Actress, producer and activist Natalie Portman has been with the French ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied since 2009. Together they have two children, Aleph and Amalia. Portman is just 5’3″ while her husband is 5’10”.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
We’re still waiting for these crazy kids to set a wedding date! The on-again-off-again couple enjoy a 10 inch difference, which might explain why Miley Cyrus is often sporting heels. Cyrus is 5’5″ whereas Liam Hemsworth is 6’3″.
Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal
Yes, we did decide to include Reese Witherspoon on this list again. For two years she dated fellow actor Jake Gyllenhaal after meeting on the set of Rendition in 2007. As you know, Witherspoon is 5’1″ and if you add on 10 more inches, you’ll get to Jake’s height – 5’11”.
Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson
Khloé Kardashian makes the list again. And guys, she isn’t all that short at 5’10”, but compared to her boyfriend, the Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, she is short! Thompson is nearly a foot taller at 6’9″.
Ashley Tisdale and Christopher French
Disney channel and High School Musical flashbacks are starting! And yes, I consider that a good thing. What, you don’t? In any case, at 5’3″ Ashley Tisdale stands at just about a head shorter than her musician husband Christopher French.
Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler
Speaking of High School Musical, Vanessa Hudgens makes the list! She is almost a foot shorter than her 6’0″ boyfriend Austin Butler. In fact, she’s shorter than me! Not that you would care about that, but still, let’s call it a fun fact?
Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder
Vampire fandoms collectively exploded when Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder got together! And they’re still shrieking with joy. Somerhalder stands half a foot taller than his 5’4″ wife, but with some heels, she comes pretty close.
Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima
Looks like Kourtney Kardashian makes the list again! At a teeny frame of 5’0″, her boyfriend model Younes Bendjima towers over her at 6’2″. How cute.
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller
If the singer didn’t wear heels all the time, you could easily see the seven inch height difference between the two! Ariana Grande stands at 5’0″ while her fiance Mac Miller is 5’7″.
Levi Meaden and Ariel Winter
This couple is just too cute! Levi Meaden stands at 5’11” meaning he is almost a foot taller than his girlfriend Ariel Winter – she’s only 5’1″. Now that’s short!
Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting
The Big Bang Theory star became engaged to the professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting in September 2013. They only had been dating for three months! December 31, 2013, is when they tied the knot. And as far as their height is concerned, there is quite a gap! Kaley Cuoco is 5’6″, while Ryan Sweeting, is 6’5″.
Gerard Pique and Shakira
Colombian singer, songwriter, and dancer Shakira began dating the Spanish football (soccer) player Gerard Piqué in 2011. They have two sons together, Milan and Sasha. Piqué is actually 10 years younger than the singer! And on top of it all, he stands at 6’6″ while Shakira is a mere 5’2″.
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney
Unfortunately Lady Gaga wears heels all the time! However when this couple did the Polar Plunge, their height difference was clear. Lady Gaga is just 5’1″ whereas the Chicago Fire star is 5’11”! Yup, the actor is a whole 10 inches taller. Sadly the couple ended their engagement.
Sam Cooper and Lily Allen
At 6’0″, Sam Cooper (a builder and decorator) is definitely bigger than English singer Lily Allen. In comparison, Allen is just 5’2″. They have two daughters together. However in June 2018, they called it quits.
Freida Pinto and Dev Patel
At 5’7″, the gorgeous Freida Pinto is seven inches shorter than her Slumdog Millionaire co-star and longtime boyfriend Dev Patel. Patel rings in at 6’2″.

Joel Madden might just be 5’7″, but he is definitely a giant when compared to his 5’0″ wife Nicole Richie. The couple have two children together and tied the knot in 2010.
Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston
Granted Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston are no longer together but they still end up on this list. Justin Theroux stands at a height of 5’9″ while his ex-fiance Jennifer Aniston is just 5’5″.
Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond

Chris Bosh and Adrienne Williams
We’re kicking off this list with a bang. Miami Heat basketball player Chris Bosh stands at 6’11” while his wife is a mere 5 ft! Yup, you read that right. There is a 23 inch difference between these lovebirds! Personally I can’t relate to this but I can still be speechless, which I most definitely am.
Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster
Superstar Rod Stewart is 5’10” while his wife Penny Lancaster is an impressive 6’1”! The “Hot Legs” singer settled down in early 2000’s and the duo have two children together.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Five inches is what separated this couple. Pop singer Katy Perry met English comedian and author Russell Brand in 2009, the two fell madly in love and were married for 14 months. Unfortunately they divorced in 2011. When they were together though, Perry stood at a mere 5’8” while Brand stood at 6’1”.
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
Let’s keep up with the Kardashian name for another second, no pun intended. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were married from 2006 to 2015, together they have three children. Kourtney is 5′ while Scott stands at 5’11”, a terribly cute height difference.
