The 'height' of love: Short-tall celeb couples!

     Next

Next

These famous personalities seem perfectly matched, except heightwise -- but then love is blind! Do you and your partner make for a similar picture?

Forget carefully arranged photo-ops. When it comes to practically any physical shortfall (no pun intended!), it can usually be airbrushed away -- except for this one!

We take a look at some of the cutest celebrity couples on the scene who are compatible in every way, except maybe heightwise!

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

The petite reality starlet stands at 5'2" -- and new hubby Kris is over a whole foot taller at 6'9"! That's what you get for snagging a professional basketball player, Kim.

If you and your partner also share a sizeable height difference, do send in your photographs! Write in to getahead@rediff.co.in (subject line: 'The Height of Love') with the pics attached and we'll publish the best ones right here on rediff.com!

The diminutive Black Eyed Peas singer is 5'2" and like the rest of the ladies on the list, resorts to high heels for red carpet appearances with Josh. Too bad they don't make much difference next to her 6'3.5" actor beau!

Now here's a switch -- model Sophie Dahl is 6' tall and her British jazz musician husband Jamie is only 5'4". But they think nothing of it and have gone on record to state that they find the media obsession with their height difference 'weird'!

The comedian is 6'3" and his lovely actress wife is 5'2" -- no wonder she stated in an interview that when she's standing next to him, she feels like a "circus freak"!

Our desi Hollywood star is 5'5" and her heartthrob is a lanky 6'2". But then there's also a six year age-gap between them and they make that work too -- nothing comes in the way of true love!
