As the saying goes, opposites attract, and that seems to be true for height as well as personality. Just consider these celebrity couples where the woman is taller than her male partner. When the female celebrities are models, that height difference between them and their boyfriends may be less surprising, but this list also features actors, musicians, and television personalities.
Two superstar actors top this list. Charlize Theron and Sean Penn dated for about a year between 2014-2015. At 5'10" tall, the actress measured a mere two inches taller than the 5'8" Mystic River star – but that's without wearing heels. And when you think of celebrity couples where the girl is taller, Tom Cruise immediately comes to mind. Both Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes stood above the 5'7” actor on the red carpet. Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been dating the considerably taller Erin Darke since the pair met on the set of the film Kill Your Darlings, and John Legend has been happily married to statuesque model Chrissy Teigen since 2013.
These famous men don't seem to be troubled by being shorter than their girlfriends. In fact, they seem proud to be on the arms of these stunning women. Read on to see which celebrity couples made the list.
