10+ Female Celebs Who Are Taller Than Their Male Partners

We've come a long way as far as overcoming gender stereotypes is concerned, but we still have a long way to go. For instance, why are we still putting such an emphasis on height?

Furthermore, why do the majority of people find it strange when a woman is taller than her partner? Have a look at these 10+ female celebs who are taller than their male partners and helping to cast off outdated gender norms.

Charlize Theron

Charlize stands 5'10" and has been taller than almost every man she's ever dated in her entire life.

Such was certainly the case when Charlize became entwined with actor Sean Penn years back, who is only 5'8" tall.

Jenna Elfman

Does anyone else remember Dharma and Greg? My gosh, what an incredible show that was.

The always gorgeous Jenna Elfman clocks in at an impressive 5'10". Her husband Bodhi isn't far off, but still only manages to break the 5'9" mark.

Geena Davis

Geena Davis has been married four times over the past 35-plus years. Her most recent husband, Reza Jarrahy, was only 5'8".

Geena, on the other hand, measures 6 feet in height, and that's when she isn't wearing high-heeled shoes.

Liv Tyler

Liv and her ex-husband Rosytan Langdon were married for six years before deciding to end things.

The actress may have only been two inches taller at 5'10", but in heels, their height difference would appear much more pronounced.

Rhea Durham

In photos, Rhea often looks like she casts a tall shadow over her husband Mark Wahlberg. But in reality, she's only an inch taller at 5'9".

Rhea just happens to love how she happens to look in high heels.

Sophie Turner

It's been almost two years since Joe and Sophie said their "I dos." Sophie is two inches taller than Joe at 5'9" but their height difference is so comparable that you barely notice it.

Also, does marrying Joe Jonas make Sophie Turner an honorary member of the band?

Cameron Diaz

When she's wearing heels, Cameron Diaz stands well over six feet tall. Her punk-rocker husband Benji Madden, on the other hand, is only 5'8".

Is it just me or are all guys who play in punk rock bands on the shorter end of the scale?

Katie Holmes

It seems like only yesterday that Tom was jumping up and down on Oprah Winfrey's couch confessing his undying love for Katie Holmes.

Sadly, their difference in height was the least of their problems as time went on.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman is the epitome of the phrase "a tall drink of water." At 5'11", she was well more than 6 inches taller than her ex-husband, Tom Cruise.

When she wore heels, Nicole would have to bend over just to kiss him.

Tracy Pollan

Tracy and Michael have been married for more than 30 years. Tracy is taller than her husband by two inches at 5'6".

You read that correctly, Marty McFly is really 5'4" in real life. It's pretty heavy, to borrow a phrase from Marty.

Eniko Parrish

The always gorgeous Eniko Parrish turns heads everywhere she goes. She's also quite a lot taller than her husband Kevin Hart.

Kevin may be one of the biggest comics in the entire world, but in real life, he's barely 5'4".

Alessandra Ambrosio

Alessandra Ambrosio is absolutely stunning and stands at 5'9". Her ex-fiance Jamie Mazur isn't far off the mark but is still about an inch shorter than his former supermodel girlfriend.

By the way, I just found out that Alessandra's daughter is turning 13. How is that possible?

Stacy Keibler

Stacy Keibler may not exactly be a household name, but for fans of WWE and WCW — she's wrestling royalty.

At nearly 6 feet tall, you can understand why Stacy would fare well in the ring. Her husband Jared is 5'8".

Kaley Cuoco

I know that Kaley and Johnny are happy with the new respective partners, but I really was hoping that these two would make it work.

Kaley stands 5'6" without heels; a little more than an inch taller than her former beau and co-star.

Nicole Kidman (again).

Nicole and her current husband, Keith Urban have roughly a one-inch height difference.

But when these two walk the red carpet with one another, Nicole appears to tower over him. Can somebody please get Keith some lifts for his shoes?

Helen Lasichanh

Pharrell and his wife Helen may seem a little unenthused but don't let their blank expressions fool you. The "Happy" couple have been wed just shy of 10 years and share four children together — three of which are triplets!

Erin Darke

Erin first met her long-time partner Daniel Radcliffe while filming Kill Your Darlings back in 2013. The talented young actress is only two inches taller than Daniel in flats, although when these two walk a red carpet and Erin wears heels — the difference can be staggering.

Clare Grant

I used to love Seth Green growing up. To this day, I still watch Idle Hands every Halloween — it's a classic!

Seth's wife may look tall but she's barely 5'5" in real life. Seth just happens to be on the shorter side of the scale.

Coco Rocha

Coco Rocha is a Canadian-born fashion model and is widely considered to be the world's first digital supermodel. Whenever she's in heels, Coco stands a good three inches taller than her husband/business partner, James Conran.

Sidenote — did anyone else not notice the baby at first?

Tina Fey

Tina and her husband Jeff Richmond are life partners in every sense of the word.

Not only have they been married for 20 years, but they've also worked together on several projects — including the Tony-nominated production of "Mean Girls".

Sophie Dahl

Sophie Dahl is a published author and former fashion model. She also happens to be the granddaughter of the legendary children's author, Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).

As you can see from this cute snapshot with hubby Jamie Cullum, Sophie stands nearly a head taller.

Ariana Cooper

Fashion model Ariana Cooper married Sum-41 lead-singer and frontman Deryck Whibley back in 2015.

At 5'9" tall, Ariana is a little more than five inches taller than her punk-rocker husband. When Deryck was asked about the height difference, he said that it "Makes No Difference."

Rhea Perlman

Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito have been together for what feels like forever. They began dating in 1972 and have somehow managed to make it work for nearly 50 years.

Perhaps the secret to their longevity and success boils down to the fact that Rhea and Danny don't live together.

Erica Schmidt

Peter Dinklage will always be remembered for his awe-inspiring performance as Tyrion Lannister in the groundbreaking HBO series Game of Thrones.

He and his wife have been happily married for just over 15 years and share two children together.

Penny Lancaster

Rod Stewart first met Penny Lancaster during a live performance. At just over 6'0" tall, Penny was easy to spot in the crowd.

After they met, the 5'8" rockstar immediately put his people to work and the next day Rod extended an invitation for Penny to become his personal photographer.

Gwendoline Christie

Yet another Game of Thrones alumni! It's not surprising to hear that Gwendoline Christie has a difficult time finding men that measure up.

At nearly 6'3", Gwendoline is taller than most football players — let alone her husband Giles Deacon.

Gigi Hadid

Gigi is someone who often appears much taller than she actually is. Her ex-boyfriend Zayn stands at a respectable 5'7" and Gigi is barely an inch taller.

Although rumours say these two have called it quits, I'm not so quick to give up hope.

Padma Lakshmi

Most people are quick to forget that Padma was once married to controversial author and philosopher, Salman Rushdie.

At 5'7", the always gorgeous host is two inches taller than her ex-husband. The couple wed for three years before breaking it off.

Josephine Skriver

Josephine is married to Alexander DeLeon, better known by the stage name Bohnes. As well as being a producer, Bohnes is also the lead singer for the American rock band The Cab.

His supermodel wife might look like she's towering over him, but in reality, she's barely two inches taller at 5'9".

Bella Hadid

I always loved Bella and The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) as a couple. There was just something about them that worked.

Nobody would ever accuse Bella of being tall at 5'7", but she certainly overshadowed Abel by at least an inch.


I understand that the deck was stacked against Zendaya and Tom Holland right from the beginning, but boy was I hoping they'd find a way to make it work.

Zendaya is 5'10". which makes her a full two inches taller than our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
