Sarah Kester 29 Jan 2021

The sky's the limit with love.

This includes the height difference in which many celebs have with their partners. And this doesn't just include males; some female celebs are actually a lot taller than their male counterparts!

Here are 10+ celebrity couples with a big height difference. Did you guess any of these?

1. Kim K and Kris Humphries

Before she married rapper Kanye West, the reality TV star took height to new limits by marrying NBA player Kris Humphries.

With a foot and half gap between 5’2” Kim and 6’9” Humphries, this would've made things like kissing quite difficult.

2. Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith

At 6'2", the Fresh Prince has gotten used to towering above many of his co-stars over the years.

But this especially includes his wife, Jada, who barely comes in at 5ft. At least they look cute!

3. Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa

Lisa may be 12 years older than her Aquaman husband, but she’s not leading in height.

He’s a whopping 6’4” while she’s only 5’2”. The only time they looked similar in size was when he made that hilarious Superbowl commercial.

This is actually a case of the female being taller than the male!

At 5’9”, the Dawson’s Creek actress was two inches taller than Cruise who is 5’ 7". Now that their daughter, Suri, is older, she has even grown to be taller than her daddy!

Katie wasn’t the only ex-wife that was taller than the action star!

At 5’ 11”, Kidman was at least four inches taller than him. Add in heels, and she looked like she was towering. Maybe that’s why she divorced him?

As an NBA player, it makes perfect sense that the athlete would be 7’1".

While this makes him a slam dunk on the court, it certainly made things awkward in his former relationship with Nicole Alexander, who is 5’2”.

There is a whole foot between this adorable couple, who stands in at 6’3” (Sasha) and 5’2” (Isla).

The Confessions of a Shopaholic actress once joked about the incredible height difference between her and Sasha, saying it made her look like a “circus freak.”

At 6’ 1”, the lanky Pattinson loomed over the 5’4” Stewart.

While the pair fell in love and dated for several years, Kristen told Howard Stern that dating a co-star is "the biggest mistake an actor can make.”

At 5’4”, there’s a good chance that anyone the comedian dates will be taller than him.

That’s the current status with his wife, who is 5’7”. We’re sure this has been the butt of a few jokes from his bestie, Dwayne Johnson, who likes to rag on Hart’s small stature.

10. Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth

With a history of taller men, the 5’2” actress found her talent agent husband Jim Toth, 6’1”, to be the best suitor for her.

He even made her feel safe the first time she met him at a party. Maybe his height had something to do with that?

11. Fergie and Josh Duhamel

As the former lead singer of the Black Eyed Peas, Fergie was used to being around tall men.

So it makes perfect sense that she felt right at home with her former husband, Josh Duhamel, who is 6'4".

12. Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom

She may be one of the tallest Kardashians, but Khloé was still a lot shorter than her ex-husband, Lamar Odom.

He is 6’10, while she is 5’10, putting a whopping 12 inches between them.

What is it with the Kardashian sisters dating men so much taller than them?

Coming in as the shortest Kardashian at 5 feet, her ex, Scott Disick, had 11 inches on her. We wonder whose height their kids will inherit!

14. Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas

The Game of Thrones alum is 5’9" while her Jonas Brothers husband is 5’7". Two inches may not seem like a lot, but it certainly appears that way whenever Sophie wears heels.

Height difference or not, these new parents are still adorable.

Williams must have brought the “Heat” to Bosh, as the 6’11” NBA Champion had his mindset on 5ft Adrienne Williams.

They are now happily married and must be quite compatible, as they have five children together.

There have always been a few differences between the That '70s Show co-stars. For starters, Kunis was 14 when she was cast, while Kutcher was 19.

They’re not dating anymore, but back when they were, this couple had the highest height difference on this list.

The Golden Globe nominated actress's short height stood out like a sore thumb on A Good Place and it's even more so next to her husband, Dax Shepherd.

At 6’2”, he's a whole foot and inch taller than Bell! But this hasn't made things weird, as the pair are married and have two kids!
