20 Celebrity Women who are Taller than their Boyfriends and Husbands

In Hollywood, where image and appearance are paramount, it’s not uncommon to see celebrity couples with a noticeable height difference. While we’re used to seeing tall men paired with petite women, the tables are often turned when it comes to some of our favorite female celebrities. From supermodels to actresses and athletes, these 20 famous women proudly tower over their significant others, defying traditional gender norms when it comes to height.


Zendaya, who is 5 foot 10, is taller than her boyfriend, Tom Holland, who is 5 foot 8. She’s said she’s never thought of height differences “as a thing.”

The “Spider-Man: No Way Home” costars started publicly dating in summer 2021.

When promoting their movie on “The Graham Norton Show” on December 3, 2021, they joked about their struggles on set because Zendaya is taller. During one stunt, where Spider-Man was supposed to carry MJ safely to a bridge, the stunt would fall flat because Zendaya would land first.

“So Zendaya would land,” Holland said. “And I’m the superhero, I’m supposed to look cool. […] Then I would land and my feet would swing from underneath me and then she would catch me.”

In a SiriusXM Stars interview on December 10, 2021, the couple spoke on how the stereotypes and assumptions that come with Zendaya being taller are “ridiculous.”

Zendaya went on to comment on filming tricks saying, “Often, like, having to cheat it and pretend … like why not just let it be what it is?”

“I honestly never thought of it as a thing,” she added. “Because my parents were always that way. So I didn’t know that people cared until life, you know, but before that I had no construct of it.”
