The High School Musical fans out there will surely remember Sharpay Evans. She’s so over Troy and Gabriella. Like, seriously. She’s happy with her new partner in life, Christopher French. Our Sharpay Evans looks so cute next to French, even though he’s more than a foot taller than her.
After graduating from High School Musical, Ashley Tisdale didn’t stop making music. In fact, she works it out with her boyfriend. Christopher French is the lead singer for Annie Automatic, an LA-based alt rock band. The two started dating in 2012, and their love seems to still be going strong. Their mutual musical inclinations surely share some of the credit. Ashley Tisdale has already released two studio albums. For her third, she is working with French. Something for Sharpay Evans fans to watch out for!
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
There’s actually a lot going on behind the movie scenes for celebrities. Off cam, some love teams make it real. Let’s take the Smith couple for example. Will Smith first met Jada when she auditioned for a role in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She wanted to take the role of Will Smith’s character’s wife, Lisa Wilkes. Unfortunately, Jada didn’t make the cut.
Did you know why Jada wasn’t accepted for the role? They said that she was too short and so wouldn’t make a believable fit for Smith! She had to stand next to a 6’2” guy which would make framing a nightmare for the camera operators. Ironically, this couple, that were told they made no sense in TV land, ended up becoming husband and wife in real life. Jada took on an irreplaceable role in Will’s life and they’ve been defying the declaration of the television executives ever since.
Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal
It’s Reese again! The actress also dated actor Jake Gyllenhaal, after they met in 2007, on the set of the film Rendition. Actors seem to spend a lot of time falling in love with each other on movie sets. These two were not exceptions.
Gyllenhaal is a full 10 inches taller than Witherspoon. Reese just makes it over the 5 foot mark, at 5’1”, while Jake towers at 5’11”. The difference was adorably obvious when photos of them dating were released in the media. But when you’re overflowing with love for each other, who has time to bother with metrics?
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.
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.
