The gift of height is not just for basketball players. Football players are also huge. Retired football quarterback, Jay Cutler, played for more than 10 seasons in the NFL. He stands out in the field at 6’3”. That’s a foot taller than his wife Kristin Cavallari, an American TV personality and actress.
Cutler and Cavallari began dating in 2010. A year later, they announced their engagement. There were some issues during the engagement but they still pushed through. In 2013, they finally got married. At present, they are very happy to have two sons and a daughter in their lives.
Salma Hayek & Edward Norton
Edward Norton is known for being quite picky about the roles he takes on (though he seems to have a bizarre penchant for characters with more than one personality). He has been nominated for multiple awards, thanks to his stellar performances. After a few years in showbiz, he crossed paths with another performer, who would come to play an important role in his life.
Mexican film actress and model, Salma Hayek, got her start in telenovelas and other films. She too has received a wealth of nominations thanks to her captivating performances. While she has starred alongside many handsome leading men, 6’0” tall Norton made a lasting impression on her. The pair dated for a few years, but perhaps the constant neck strain of looking up at her beau took a toll on Hayek, as the pair split before things got too serious.
Zendaya and Tom Holland
This couple isn’t official yet, but as fans, we’d like to believe that they are together. The pair came to life during the Spider Man: Homecoming film. Zendaya and Tom Holland play classmates in the Marvel film. Holland as Peter Parker and the Spider Man, and Zendaya as Michelle. Their love story has yet to bloom, but there was definitely a spark. When they attended the red carpet premiere of the film together, the height difference between them became more apparent. Zendaya actually stands two inches taller than Holland.
These two seem very fond of each other. The biggest scoop about them was when Tom Holland was seen leaving Zendaya’s house… with a suitcase. What could that mean? Fans went crazy with speculation after the photos were released online. But until now, Zendaya and Holland haven’t disclosed what the real story between them is.
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky
Measuring in at 6’3”, Chris Hemsworth was made for the role of Thor, the God of Thunder. He’s got the acting chops, the charisma, and the height required to play an ancient deity.
In real life, Hemsworth found an equally astonishing goddess, with all the requisite features… apart from the towering height. Spanish actress and model, Elsa Pataky, stands at 5’3”. That’s a whole foot shorter than Hemsworth, but it’s no big deal to this heavenly duo. It seems like not a force on Earth could come between the two. They even tied the knot soon after they first met, in 2010. That was a great move for the couple. Now, after a few years of marriage, they have one daughter and two sons.
Sam Cooper & Lily Allen
Smile! It’s time to take a look at the lovely little Lily Allen. At 5’2”, the singer certainly looks small when she poses near her hubby, Sam Cooper, who stands ten inches taller at 6’0”. Lily started dating Sam in July, 2009. The following year, they announced that they were welcoming an addition to their family.
Unfortunately, Allen’s pregnancy had some complications. On her sixth month of carrying the baby, she contracted a viral infection. Sadly, their little one never got a chance to see the world. Lily was, understandably, diagnosed with PTSD as a result of the incident. But, with time, the brave couple were able to move on. In fact, in 2010, they got engaged, and were then married in 2011. They now have two daughters, Ethel and Marnie. However, the two recently decided to end their marriage due to Sam’s reported infidelity.
