Celebrity couples with extreme height differences have proven to be a fantastic opportunity for paparazzi on and off the red carpet. Not only is it surprising when we see such extreme height differences, but it’s also surprising that certain celebrities are even dating in the first place! Join us as we run through the very best in Hollywood and beyond.
1-Mary-Kate Olsen (5’2″) & Olivier Sarkozy (6’3″) – 13 inches
For the last few years now, the Olsen twins have switched focus from their acting careers to the world of fashion. At the same time that they made the career change, Mary-Kate Olsen first met banker Olivier Sarkozy, who is the brother of the former president of France.
Since then, Mary-Kate and Olivier have tied the knot and are regularly seen together in public. At 6’3″, Sarkozy stands over a foot taller than his much shorter wife.
2-Miley Cyrus (5’5″) & Liam Hemsworth (6’3″) – 10 inches
Not only are Aussie brothers Chris and Liam Hemsworth both Hollywood superstars, but they are both in high-profile relationships! Liam Hemsworth, who starred as heartthrob Gale in The Hunger Games trilogy, is currently with Disney sensation turned pop star Miley Cyrus.
While she is 5’5″, Hemsworth towers over her at 6’3″! The on-again, off-again couple, who met on the set of The Last Song, announced their engagement in 2012, but later broke it off. After getting engaged a second time in 2016, all seemed well, until rumors recently started swirling about another break-up.
3-Cameron Diaz (5’9″) & Benji Madden (5’5″) – 4 inches
Not only is it surprising that Cameron Diaz is taller than Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden, but it’s shocking that the two are together at all! Arguably one of the oddest couples on this list, Diaz stands at 5’9″, which means she is a staggering four inches taller than her rockstar husband.
The actress began dating Madden back in 2014 and it only took seven months before the couple got married! Diaz has taken a step back from acting to focus on her life with Benji.
4-Seth Green (5’4″) & Clare Grant (5’7″) – 3 inches
Look, Clare Grant isn’t particularly tall, by any means. However, her celebrity partner Seth Green is very short. Coming in a 5’4″, the voice behind Chris Griffin is often looking up to lock eyes with his wife.
Despite the huge height difference, it is obvious that Green and Grant are thoroughly in love. The couple met in 2006, and since then, Grant has had a number of voice roles on Green’s critically acclaimed animated comedy Robot Chicken.
5-Hafthor Julius Bjornsson (6’8″) & Kelsey Henson (5’2″) – 18 inches
When you are officially the world’s strongest man, there is a good chance that you’re going to be quite tall. Hailing from Iceland, it is clear that Hafthor Julius Bjornsson is a descendant of the fierce Vikings and is proud to represent his country at an international level.
He undoubtedly towers over his wife Kelsey Henson, who he tied the knot with in 2018. Fans will be excited to see what happens to his character Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane in the final season of Game Of Thrones.
6-Chris Bosh (6’11”) & Adrienne Williams (4’11”) – 24 inches
There are plenty of players in the NBA who are taller than Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh. However, he still looks like a giant compared to his wife, Adrienne Williams.
With Bosh at 6ft 11 inches and Williams exactly two feet shorter than him, it is a truly stunning thing to see whenever the couple are spotted on the red carpet together. It will be interesting to see how tall the couple’s four kids ended up being.
7-Reese Witherspoon (5’1″) & Jim Toth (6’1″) – 12 inches
Legally Blonde legend Reese Witherspoon has a long history of dating celebrities who are much taller than she is. Not only was her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe over 6’0″, but so was one of her more recent exes, Jake Gyllenhaal.
Witherspoon’s love for all things tall hasn’t stopped, and her current husband, Phil Toth, can certainly vouch for that. As tall as the former flames in her life were, Toth is a towering 12 inches taller than the talented actress.
8-Daniel Radcliffe (5’4″) & Erin Darke (5’6″) – 2 inches
While everyone was rooting for Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson to have an off-screen romance after their work on the Harry Potter franchise, the former ended up dating a lesser known name – Erin Darke, who happens to be two inches taller than him.
They actually started dating after first working together on the set of the movie Kill Your Darlings. Despite this, Darke did express her concerns over Radcliffe’s severe weight loss for a role in the movie Jungle.
9-Mila Kunis (5’4″) & Ashton Kutcher (6’2″) – 10 inches
Although many have put up posters on their walls of both stars, every one of those fans has rooted for Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher ever since they starred together on That ’70s Show and eventually became an item.
Since then, Kunis and Kutcher have had two kids (Wyatt and Dmitri) and tied the knot in 2015. Kutcher’s previous wife, Demi Moore, was only a couple of inches taller than Mila Kunis, but we all know how that went.
10-Kim Kardashian (5’3″) & Kris Humphries (6’9″) – 18 inches
As most of the world knows by now, Kim Kardashian is happily married to hip-hop artist Kanye West and has had three kids with him. However, casual fans might not know that she was previously married to a much taller person by the name of Kris Humphries.
She tied the knot with the basketball player on August 20, 2011. However, 72 days later, the TV personality filed for divorce. Amazingly, there is also a 14-inch height difference between Yeezy and Humphries.
11-Nicole Kidman (5’11”) & Keith Urban (5’10”) – 1 inch
Nicole Kidman isn’t the tallest lady of all time, but she has a reputation for dating some of the shorter guys in the industry – most notably, Tom Cruise. However, that Hollywood romance has been history for years now.
Despite this, Kidman has jumped ship to another relatively short celebrity; Aussie country singer Keith Urban. She’s not much taller than her husband, but Kidman does tower over Urban when she goes to awards events with him and wears a pair of heels.
12-Prince William (6’3″) & Kate Middleton (5’7″) – 8 inches
It certainly isn’t the biggest height difference on this list. However, there is no denying that Kate Middleton is a bit taller than the average woman, coming in at a respectable 5ft and 7 inches.
Of course, Will and Kate will be thrilled to not be the center of attention ever since Prince Harry tied the knot with Meagan Markle this year. It seems though that as time goes on, things are only going to become more eventful for the second in line to the throne.
