They say the path to love never runs smoothly, but when two people fall for each other, love usually conquers all. Whether they have an issue with race, class, religion, gender, age, real love can be unstoppable. It can even make people forget their differences, and conventions, society, and opinions hardly matter. So when it comes to height gaps, this can be just another obstacle in the course of true love.
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite celebrity power couples, who have noticeable height differences. For most, it’s only when you see them together on the red carpet that the height gap is evident. Still, these famous faces prove to us all that height is just height and that love is still love.
Wladimir Klitschko and Hayden Panettiere
Hayden Panettiere shot to fame as the cheerleader, Claire Bennet, in Heroes. When she met the professional boxer, Wladimir Klitschko, the couple fell for each other and started dating. Hayden is also 5’0” and Wladimir is 6’6”, so their 18 inches height gap didn’t get the way of their love. Their 13-year age gap didn’t seem to affect them either.
In spite of their height differences and the glaring age gaps, Hayden and Wladimir ended up getting married, and in 2014, they welcomed a daughter Kaya into the world. While they were together for nine years, the couple eventually called it quits, but at least they still have Kaya. We just wonder if she inherited their father or mother’s height genes.
