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.
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.
Jason Momoa (6’4″) & Lisa Bonet (5’2″) – 14 inches
Not only do Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have a significant height difference, but their age gap is also worth noting. Momoa is 14 inches taller than Bonet and is also 12 years younger than her. The couple recently tied the knot, which makes Mamoa the stepfather of Zoe Kravitz, who has followed in the celebrity footsteps of her famous parents. Mamoa actually confessed that he developed a crush on Bonet when he was just eight years old.
Shakira (5’2″) & Gerard Pique (6’4″) – 14 inches
It has been nearly a decade since Shakira and Gerard Pique started dating. However, this takes nothing away from the ever-shocking height difference between this power-couple. The Spanish soccer player is a staggering 14 inches taller than his pop star wife. The couple fell in love after Shakira sang the anthem at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the tournament that Pique won with the Spanish national team. Since then, the couple has had two kids – Milan and Sasha.
Kevin Hart (5’4″) & Eniko Parrish (5’6″) – 2 inches
As one of the shortest actors in Hollywood today, at 5’3″, Kevin Hart was always going to struggle to find a woman shorter than him. However, he isn’t phased by the fact that Eniki Parrish is 2 inches taller. In fact, Hart told Oprah that he simply doesn’t “believe in doing things to manufacture my body to appeal to what I think people might like.” Despite some rocky moments between the two, Hart and Parrish are still going strong.
Christina Ricci (5’1″) & James Heerdegen (6ft+) – 11+ inches
Another actress who inevitably tends to end up with guys much taller than her is Christina Ricci. At one point, the Addams Family star was engaged to the colossal Owen Benjamin, who was 6’6″ in comparison to her much shorter 5’1″ stature. However, things didn’t work out between the two and since then, Ricci has moved onto actor James Heerdegen. While it’s unclear whether Heerdegen is as tall as Benjamin, he is definitely at least 6ft tall.
Jessica Simpson (5’3″) & Eric Johnson (6’3″) – 12 inches
When pop star Jessica Simpson was previously married to actor Nick Lachey, there were only 4 inches separating the married couple. However, Simpson has since moved on from Lachey and tied the knot with football player Eric Johnson back in 2014. In terms of height, Johnson was certainly an upgrade for the singer, with a much greater 12-inch height difference between the two. Let’s face it; when you are married to an NFL player, you should go big or go home.
Lebron James (6’6″) & Savannah Brinson (5’7″) – 11 inches
When you date a basketball player, the height difference can look even bigger than it actually is. However, this doesn’t apply to Savannah Brinson. At 5 ft and 7 inches tall, she is definitely not short by any means. The couple has been together since their time in high school together, and in 2013, James and Brinson officially tied the knot. Seeing that James is one of the highest paid NBA players right now, Brinson is probably not going to go splitsville anytime soon.
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.
Vanessa Hudgens (5’1″) & Austin Butler (6’0″) – 11 inches
Another celebrity who seems to have had a relationship upgrade in the height department is Vanessa Hudgens. Of course, the young actress used to date her High School Musical co-star Zac Efron, who was a respectable six inches taller than her anyway. However, her current boyfriend, Austin Butler, is nearly double that height difference, standing at an impressive 6ft! Hudgens has been dating the Switched at Birth actor since 2011. Butler recently starred in the 2018 comedy Dude.
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.
Jamie Cullum (5’4″) & Sophie Dahl (6ft) – 8 inches
It might not sound like much of height difference, but make no mistake about it, Sophie Dahl towers over her celebrity lover Jamie Cullum. Especially when she is in heels, these two have one of the biggest height differences in the celebrity world, at least when it comes to the woman being taller than the man. Jamie Cullum doesn’t seem to care though. The jazz musician is very much in love with Dahl and the couple has even had two kids together.
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.
Chris Hemsworth (6’3″) & Elsa Pataky (5’3″) – 12 inches
When casting Chris Hemsworth as Thor, the God of Thunder, Marvel Cinematic Studios needed to make sure that they had someone who was fairly tall for the role. At 6’3″, the man from down under certainly fit the bill. As for Hemsworth’s personal life, he doesn’t let the huge height difference between him and his wife Elsa Pataky get in the middle of their relationship. Spanish actress Pataky has also had her fair share of Hollywood success, starring in the Fast and Furious franchise.
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.
Khloe Kardashian (5’8″) & Tristan Thompson (6’8″) – 12 inches
It seems like Kim Kardashian’s sister Khloe followed in her footsteps when she also married a basketball player – Lamar Odom. However, the marriage descended into a heavily publicized divorce. Despite this, Khloe decided to keep her love life in the world of basketball and started dating fellow NBA player Tristan Thompson. Amazingly, just two days before Khloe gave birth to their daughter, rumors circulated online that Tristan had been unfaithful to her. Nevertheless, the couple is still together.
Shaunie Nelson (5’7″) and Shaquille O’Neal (7’1″) – 18 inches
Throughout his 19 years of playing for the NBA, Shaquille O’Neal played for a total of six teams and was one of the tallest and heaviest men to play at 7″1 and 330 pounds. O’Neal and Shaunie married in 2002 and welcomed four children together. In 2009, however, the couple announced their divorce with Shaunie citing irreconcilable differences. He was later in a two-year relationship with reality star Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander and is now engaged to Laticia Rolle, who he has been dating since 2014.
Kourtney Kardashian (5’0″) and Younes Bendjima (6′ 2″) – 14 inches
She may be the eldest sister in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but Kourtney Kardashian is undoubtedly the shortest out of the bunch. While it has recently been reported that the 39-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star split from her boyfriend of two years, 24-year-old Younes Bendjima, the former couple did have a significant height difference. While her boyfriend was not just considerably younger than the mother-of-three, he was also much taller, standing at 6’2″ alongside the petite reality star who is only 5’0″.
La La Anthony (5’6″) and Carmelo Anthony (6’8″) – 14 inches
American personality, actress, and New York Times best-selling author La La Anthony became engaged to her basketball player beau, Carmelo Anthony, on Christmas Day in 2004. Meanwhile, the couple only made it official in 2010 when they were married by Michael Eric Dyson in front of 320 guests. The whole event was filmed for VH1’s reality series, La La’s Full Court Wedding and their life together has been documented on the series La La’s Full Court Life. However, Anthony filed for separation from her husband in 2017 and they are yet to divorce.
Natalie Portman (5’3″) and Benjamin Millepied (5’10”) – 7 inches
Black Swan star, Natalie Portman, has been married to her choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied since 2012. The couple met while filming the Black Swan in 2009 and announced their engagement in 2010. The couple moved from Los Angeles to Paris when the Paris Opera Ballet announced that Millipied had accepted the position of director of dance in 2014, but they have since moved back. While Portman is recognized globally as an award-winning actress, she is also a Harvard graduate and once stated, “I’d rather be smart than a movie star.”
Ashley Tisdale (5’3″) and Christopher French (6’4″) – 13 inches
High School Musical star, Ashley Tisdale, married her boyfriend of two years, Christopher French, in 2014. While Ashley is best known for her role in the Disney original hit, she was named the creative director of Signorelli in 2015, launched her Illuminate makeup brand in 2016, and in 2017, she confirmed she was working on her third studio album. No doubt her and her singer husband make sweet music with one another and perhaps a duet could feature on her album when it is finally released!
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.
Freddie Prinze Jr. (6’1″) & Sarah Michelle Gellar (5’3″) – 10 inches
Originally two of the most popular faces of the ’90s, Freddie Prinz Jr. and Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar are now living proof that Hollywood couples can maintain a fairly normal life. This is mainly due to the fact that both figures have, in recent times, withdrawn from the public eye in order to focus on family life. Although Prinze Jr. has had some minor success in animation recently, the couple is, on the whole, keeping things pretty lowkey.
Fergie (5’3″) & Josh Duhamel (6’2″) – 11 inches
It seems like Fergie’s rise to fame with the Black Eyed Peas directly correlated with her blossoming romance with actor Josh Duhamel. The singer met Duhamel when the rap group made a guest appearance at his show in Las Vegas. Since then, the couple got married in 2009 and also had a son – Axl Jack. However, not every relationship is meant to last, and for Fergie and Duhamel, their time together finally came to an end in 2017.
Channing Tatum (6ft) & Jenna Dewan (5’2″) – 10 inches
One of the most beloved couples to have evolved from an on-screen relationship was Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, who starred together in the popular dance movie Step Up. As soon as the crew wrapped up filming, Tatum and Dewan began dating and eventually tied the knot three years later. They even had a daughter. However, like so many other Hollywood couples, Tatum and Dewan were simply not meant to be and separated in 2018.
Harfthor Julius Bjornsson (6’8″) & Kelsey Henson (5’2″) – 18 inches

Sophie Turner (5’7″) & Joe Jonas (5’6″) – 1 inch

The young actress, who is ready to own 2019 with her roles in Game of Thrones and the upcoming X-Men movie Dark Phoenix, has been engaged to pop star Joe Jonas since 2016.

Jay Cutler (6’3″) & Kristin Cavallari (5’3″) – 12 inches
They might be famous for very different reasons, but Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari are a powerful celebrity couple.

Ian Somerhalder (5’8″) & Nikki Reed (5’4″) – 4 inches
This is one couple who you seriously don’t want to mess with, especially since they both starred as vampires in separate shows/movies. Ian Somerhalder starred as Damon Salvatore in the popular series The Vampire Diaries, while Nikki Reed played vampiress Rosalie Hale in the Twilight saga. Since 2014, the couple has been inseparable, tying the knot a year later and having a daughter in 2017. Somerhalder is scheduled to star in the upcoming Netflix series V-Wars.

Will Smith (6’3″) & Jada Pinkett Smith (5’1″) – 14 inches
One thing is for sure: the huge 14-inch height difference between Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith hasn’t had too much of an impact on the couple’s 20+ year marriage. Their kids Jayden and Willow have already exceeded their mother’s height and are hot on the tail of their Fresh Prince father. In a climate where Hollywood couples rarely stand the test of time, it’s amazing how much the Smiths have achieved together and continue to achieve.
Kristen Bell (5’1″) & Dax Shepard (6’2″) – 13 inches
There is no doubt that Kristen Bell is one of the shortest actresses on this list. This would make you think that her husband, Dax Shepard, had an advantage in the height department from day one. At 6’2″, the fellow actor is an impressive 13 inches taller than Bell. The Hollywood husband and wife haven’t just demonstrated their huge height difference on a number of red carpets, they have also starred together in films together such as Hit and Run and CHiPS.
Mary-Kate Olsen (5’2″) & Olivier Sarkozy (6’3″) – 13 inches

Peter Dinklage (4’4″) & Erica Schmidt (5’5″) – 13 inches
Peter Dinklage has proven time and time again on HBO’s Game of Thrones that size really doesn’t matter. Despite being the shortest person in the whole of Westeros, he is also one of the most feared. Although his fame has skyrocketed in the last few years, Dinklage has aimed to keep his personal life as private as possible. He has been married to Erica Schmidt for over a decade now and the couple has since had two kids.
Sacha Baron Cohen (6’3″) & Isla Fisher (5’2″) – 13 inches
Although Sacha Baron Cohen is renowned for making people laugh with his many outlandish alter-egos such as Borat and Ali G, the comedian/actor takes his relationship with Isla Fisher very seriously. The couple may have first met back in 2002. However, Fisher was determined to convert to Baron Cohen’s Jewish faith before finally tying the knot in 2010. Over a foot separates this adorable couple but there is no doubt that these two both look up to each other.
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.
Katie Holmes (5’9″) & Jamie Foxx (5’9″) – 0 inches

According to an insider, the relationship had been long-distant and Katie, in particular, had struggled under those conditions.
Shaquille O’Neal (7’1″) & Laticia Rolle (5’6″) – 19 inches
It is truly hard to keep up with Shaquille ONeals’ love life. The last serious relationship that the NBA legend seemed to be in was with Alicia Rolle. The couple had been dating for many years and were even engaged at one point. However, the couple decided to go their separate ways and since then, Shaq has been seen with numerous other women. These include actress Annie Ilonzeh, and most recently, a woman by the name of Dani Nicole, a model from Houston, Texas.
Kristen Stewart (5’5″) & Robert Pattinson (6’1″) – 8 inches
There was a time when Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were the couple that absolutely everyone was rooting for. Having originally starred alongside each other in the hit vampire movie series Twilight, it didn’t take long for the two to begin a real-life romance. However, everything came crumbling down when, in 2012, Stewart was caught on camera being intimate with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. After breaking up and reconciling, Stewart and Pattinson officially parted ways in May 2013.
Salma Hayek (5’2″) & Edward Norton (6’0″) – 10 inches
While Salma Hayek is currently married to French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, there was a time when she was romantically linked to a fellow Hollywood star. Between 1999 and 2003, Hayek was dating Fight Club and American History X star Edward Norton. With a 10-inch difference between the two, Norton sure did tower over Hayek while they were together. Funnily enough, it was their chiropractor that set them up, to begin with! However, it simply wasn’t meant to last.
Rod Stewart (5’10”) & Penny Lancaster (6’1″) – 3 inches
Not only has Rod Stewart established himself as one of the biggest stars in pop music, but he has also had an extremely eventful personal life. With multiple relationships to his name, as well as two failed marriages, it seemed like he would never get it right in the love department. However, it seemed like the third time was a charm when Stewart got married to Penny Lancaster. They began dating in 1999 and tied the knot in 2007 in Portofino, Italy.
Tina Fey (5’5″) & Jeff Richmond (5’5″) – 0 inches
There is no denying that Tina Fey has been one of the most important female figures in the world of comedy over the last few decades. The genius behind Mean Girls, amongst other comedies, has been head over heels for pianist-turned-musical director Jeff Richmond since 1994. Richmond ended up composing the score of Fey’s show 30 Rock and in 2001, the couple tied the knot. They have had two daughters together and in 2009, they bought a US$3.4 million NYC apartment.
Jenna Elfman (5’10”) & Bodhi Elfman (5’9″) – 1 inch

They have also had two kids together.
Ari Cooper (6’0″) & Deryck Whibley (5’6″) – 6 inches
If you grew up during the 2000s, you will be familiar with rock songs such as “Fat Lip” and “In Too Deep.” These were some of Sum 41s classic songs and frontman Deryck Whibley had a huge part to play in the band’s success over the years. Interestingly enough, Whibley has had a number of high profile relationships with the likes of Paris Hilton and Avril Lavigne. However, the musician has finally settled with one woman, having married model Ari Cooper in 2015.
Rhea Durham (5’9″) & Mark Wahlberg (5’8″) – 1 inch
At 5’8″, Marky Mark isn’t exactly the tallest guy in the world. Even still, he managed to fall in love with a woman who is still taller than him, despite not being that tall either. Mark Wahlberg has been married to Rhea Durham since 2009 and together, they have had four children – two girls and two boys. The man from Boston rarely gets a chance to breathe due to his busy workload. Nevertheless, he still manages to maintain a happy and healthy marriage.
Rhea Perlman (5’0″) & Danny Devito (4’10”) – 2 inches
Widely regarded as one of the shortest couples in entertainment history, Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman certainly made up for it with tons of heart and passion. The couple first met back in the 70s, when Perlman went to watch a friend perform in the play The Shrinking Bride. DeVito was also performing that evening and just two weeks later, they moved in together! Since then, the couple has had an on-and-off relationship and despite no longer living together, they are not planning on getting divorced.
Wladimir Klitschko (6’6″) & Hayden Panettiere (5ft) – 18 inches
You know what they say: size does not matter. However, there is something visually fascinating about seeing a celebrity that is much taller (or shorter) than their significant other. In the world of boxing, height isn’t so important. However, 6’6″ Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko would beg to differ. He’s a staggering 18 inches taller than his 5ft tall fiance, actress Hayden Panettiere. The couple’s height difference is triple the 6-inch average difference between men and women!
Miley Cyrus (5’5″) & Liam Hemsworth (6’3″) – 10 inches

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.
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.
Katie Holmes (5’9″) & Tom Cruise (5’7″) – 2 inches
Even though two inches don’t seem like a big deal, looking at their photos it looks much more. The couple started dating in 2005, and got engaged after only seven weeks! Needless to say, Mr Cruise popped the question at the top of the Eiffel Tower with a whopping tear-drop ring. Unfortunately, the marriage only lasted for a little over five years and the not-so-happy couple now share a daughter names Suri (13).
