When you walk around in your city you probably don’t think twice about all the couples that you see where the guy is much taller than the girl. It seems normal, doesn’t it? But somehow, when you see the same thing happen in a celebrity couple, the difference seems staggering. Especially if the difference isn’t just a couple of inches, but a foot or more!
Here are 10 celebrity couples with a significant height difference.
1. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Mila Kunis, the actress from That 70’s Show, Friends with Benefits, and Black Swan is 5-foot-4. And, she’s married to Ashton Kutcher (Two and a Half Men, The Ranch, No Strings Attached, and also That 70’s Show (where they met)) is 6-foot-2. That makes their height difference a whole 10 inches. And yet I think they fit together perfectly.
2. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
Kristen Bell, famous for her roles in The Good Place and Veronica Mars is 13 inches (1-foot-2) shorter than her husband, Dax Shepard, who is 6’2″. You might know Dax Shepard from his roles in CHiPS, Parenthood, and Hit & Run.
3. Sasha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher
I can’t help but giggle when I think of Sasha Baron Cohen introducing his wife as “ma waif” in the voice of Borat and looking down a whole foot at his 5-foot-3 wife, Isla Fisher. Sasha Baron Cohen, himself, is 6-foot-3.
4. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.
Buffy is just a little over 5-foot-3, and even high heels wouldn’t help her match the height of her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr. Freddie is 6-foot-1, and you might know him from the role he played with Sarah Michelle Gellar in Scooby-Doo, as well as classic hits like She’s All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer.
5. Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet
I mean, when you think of Jason Momoa, who played in Game of Thrones and Aquaman, you can’t possibly imagine that the person he’s married to could possibly be as tall as him. And you wouldn’t be wrong. At 6’4″, Jason Momoa is more than a foot taller than his wife, Lisa Bonet, who is 5-foot-2.
6. Hafþór Björnsson and Kelsey Henson
While we’re on the topic of Game of Thrones, the Mountain (Hafbór Björnsson), is 19 inches taller than his wife Kelsey Henson. 19 inches is a staggering height difference (1 foot an 7 inches).
7. Wladimir Klitschko and Hayden Panettiere
Famous Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitchko, is 1 foot and 6 inches taller than his wife, Hayden Panettiere. At 6’6″ Klitchko towers over his 5’0″ wife, whom you might now from Lost, I Love You, Beth Cooper, and Nashville.
8. Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish
I was looking at this list and seeing all the short women with the tall men around them, and I couldn’t help but think, “You know what this list needs? Some celebrity couples where the woman is taller!” I’m a little ashamed I didn’t immediately think of the contender for “shorter man in the couple” — Kevin Hart. At 5’4″ he’s 3 inches shorter than his wife, Eniko Parrish (but I wouldn’t put it past him to bribe people to say the height difference is less than it actually is).
9. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
Somehow, the difference in height in couples where the woman is taller is never as big as when the man is taller. At 5’9″, Cameron Diaz is only two inches taller than her husband, Benji Madden.
10. Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh
Pharrell Williams might be two inches shorter than Helen Lasichanh, but we all know that he’s going to continue looking suspiciously young forever, until the couple somehow enters some spectacular Benjamin Button-esque stage.
