Peter Dinklage was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. The condition hasn’t stood between him and a stellar career celebrated by a host of loving fans. Dedicated though his fans may be, there’s someone whose love for Dinklage we can’t parallel — Dinklage’s wonderful wife, American actress Erica Schmidt.
The pair got married in 2005. Whenever Dinklage is asked about his family, he delivers some touchingly beautiful answers. When one interviewer asked about his wife, Dinklage replied, “she’s very inspiring. She’s definitely the artist of the family. I am just the TV actor who pays the bills.”
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
It’s not just male celebrities who fall in love with less famous spouses. In 2005, Jessica Alba met her future-husband Cash Warren, when he was working as a director’s assistant on her superhero movie, “Fantastic Four.”
While that movie bombed, their relationship didn’t. The two began dating and later tied the knot. Many people were surprised that Jessica would date a non-celebrity person, considering how famous she is. Not only that, but she often topped the lists of Hollywood’s most desirable women. The two have proved everyone wrong with their long-running marriage and beautiful family.
Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke
Harry Potter is a grown-up now. Although, at 5’5”, it doesn’t look that obvious. In one of his post-Harry Potter projects, "Kill Your Darlings," he plays the famous Beat poet Allen Ginsberg. It was on the set of this film that he also happened to meet the love of his life.
Erin Darke is a fellow actor, regularly starring in both film and theater. She is also known as Cindy in "Good Girls Revolt." Although Darke is two inches taller than Radcliffe, they seem to be going strong. No spells or love potions are needed for this one!
Omari and Jae Hardwick
Omari Hardwick, the actor from the hit show "Power" is well known for starring in many movies and even collaborating with Spike Lee at one point. The two eventually collaborated on a little project called children together.
Jae also has a background in communications and entertainment and even worked in NBC's Primetime Entertainment Publicity Department. Even though their fans and people in the entertainment world were ambivalent about their relationship, they stuck by each other's side.
Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy
Italian-French singer Carla Bruni has decidedly mesmerized former French President Nicola Sarkozy. They met at a dinner party in 2007. Sarkozy was Bruni’s first husband, while she was his third wife.
It’s rumored that the president is actually quite sensitive about their height difference, yet he hasn't let that stop him from marrying her. Still, whenever they visit other states, Bruni wears flats. It’s all not much of a secret that Sarkozy wears heeled shoes to try to square up with his wife’s height.
