Remember when Aaliyah sang “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number”? Well, these celebrity couples of past and present are intent on showing us that the same thing goes for height. From basketball stars towering over their significant others to models and their shorter male counterparts, these couples prove that size does not matter. Although some have moved on while others are still going strong, these stars seem to know how to make it work when it comes to a vertical challenge. Here is a list of 25 celebrity couples, ranked in order of their height differential, that leave us scratching our heads, thinking “How do they do that?”

We’d lost track of how many Pirates of the Caribbean films have been churned out so far, but obviously the rest of the world hasn’t. And thanks to the massive premiere Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides had yesterday at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, we now know that the franchise is up to its fourth installment now. But this wasn’t any other screening. Apart from a slinky black carpet instead of the usual red, this was the world’s first outdoor 3-D premiere! An open-air theater was specially constructed and tickets to attend ran at $1,000 a pop. Which was a very nice touch because all proceeds from the premiere were donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
The cast turned up in full force with Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Keith Richards (and his wife, Patti Hansen), Geoffrey Rush, the intriguingly named Astrid Berges-Frisbey and our new golden boy Sam Claflin. Apart from them, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens were spotted being all BFF, Jodie Foster turned up in sunglasses (at night), Steven Tyler hung out with Mickey Mouse and Lorenzo Lamas brought his fifth wife Shawna Craig. The Dancing With The Stars crew showed up too, with Bruno Tonioli, Lacey Schwimmer, Chelsie Hightower, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy walking the
plank carpet. And American Idol blasts from the pasts too — we know you remember David Cook, but how about Blake Lewis?! Lots more to look at in our gallery below.

Eva Longoria decided to have some fun on Cinco de Mayo even though she was in Washington D.C for business. Eva was meeting with President Barack Obama to discuss the National Museum of the American Latino, a project which will, if agreed upon, will cost $600 million and will be on National Mall as part of the Smithsonian Institution. The actress looked lovely in a gray dress and matching peep-toe stilettos, in which she proceeded to pretend that she was holding up the cupola of the United States Capitol building! Way to work it, Eva! Enjoy her fun photographs in the gallery below.

Eva Longoria‘s birthday may be tomorrow, but since that’s just another boring week day, she threw her party on Saturday night. We wouldn’t have known about any of this if Kim Kardashian hadn’t tweeted, “Celebrating the glamorous @EvaLongoria’s bday 1920′s style w @KhloeKardashian @LorenRidinger” along with the twitpic you see above. Eva went full-on with the 1920′s theme as is evident from the picture! Kim had tweeted this photograph with this message, “All glammed up for a fun 1920′s themed party!” a little before, and we have to admit she looks pretty gorgeous. Look after the jump for a picture of Kim with Heidi Klum at the party. Happy birthday Ms. Longoria! Read more…
Lot’s of ex-couples are finding quick solace in new partners after getting divorced. John Mellancamp and Meg Ryan for one, or the apparent “friendship” between Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Supposedly, the latest newly-single celebrity to join this camp is Eva Longoria post her split with Tony Parker.Ã‚Â And the person allegedly ushering in this period of contentment for Eva is Penelope Cruz‘s younger brother Eduardo Cruz.
The story is that the Desperate Housewives actress was looking quite comfortable, dressed in a short white robe and walking aroundÃ‚Â barefoot inÃ‚Â her garage on Christmas Eve. Sounds like nothing, right? But the kicker is that she was soon followed by Eduardo, in the same state of undress. A source revealed to OK!, “He’s there at least three nights out of every four—he turns up and he leaves the next morning. They are trying desperately to stay beneath the radar.” Longoria’s rep responded “Eva and Eduardo are friends,” but her neighbors were a lot more verbose, saying Eva’s been hanging out a fair amount with Eduardo (who is a Spanish pop singer). Doesn’t sound like “just friends” to us. And what’s up with the whole two degrees of separation in celebrity-land? Something you want to respond to, Eva?
The name of Tony Parker’s alleged mistress has hit the Internet, and as if we couldn’t have guessed it, it only took 140 characters to let the cat out of the bag. According to Sports Illustrated staff writer Bryan Armen Graham, the name of the woman bringing about Parker and Eva Longoria’s divorce is Erin Barry, wife of Parker’s former San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry and someone who should sleep with one eye open forever, if we know Eva like we think we do.
Tweeted Graham, “Have it on good authority from entertainment sources that “former teammate” in Tony Parker-Eva Longoria affair is Brent Barry.” Graham tweeted even more damning evidence later, saying “Longoria said she found text messages from wife of a former teammate on Parker’s phone. Source says former teammate was Barry.” Oh, we would not want to be Tony Parker tonight. Or either of the Barrys. Or, well, anyone within a 500 mile radius of Eva’s scratching zone.
Yesterday, TMZ said Tony Parker is divorcing wife Eva Longoria Parker—rumors that were quickly denied by Eva’s people. Now Us Magazine says that Eva is planning to divorce Tony! “Eva is heartbroken by the betrayal,” says their source. “Once the trust was lost, the marriage was over—Eva truly thought she was going to grow old with Tony and have children with him—she’s inconsolable.” According to the mag, the NBA star was sexting outside the family phone plan. Honestly, how did athletes deal with chicks on the side before cell phones?
But here’s the more important question: why would Us come forward with a story so close to the one TMZ retracted? Considering Eva’s already on the cover of Us, its possible her camp had sold the story to the mag a while back, forcing a quick denial when TMZ blindsided them with the courthouse scoop. Tony filing papers on Eva would certainly screw up any Sandra Bullock-esque narrative they’re planning (TMZ now says Eva has filed papers in LA). Make some popcorn: if these guys can’t get their stories straight, we could be in for quite a show.
False alarm? Reports broke yesterday that Tony Parker and Eva Longoria were splitting up to the sounds of a collective WTF? They seem happy together, and Eva looked pretty much as home on his lap at the 2nd Annual Rally For Kids With Cancer not even a month ago. What gives? Apparently, nothing, because according to Eva’s spokespersonÃ‚Â Liza Anderson the story has no merit, and Tony and Eva are not divorcing.
TMZ retracted the story they had posted, and are now reporting that Tony doesn’t even have a divorce lawyer to begin with. They’ve stated, “A rep for Eva Longoria tells TMZ our story that Tony ParkerÃ‚Â filed for divorce is not true… Eva’s rep tells us Tony did not file and does not even have a divorce lawyer.Ã¢â‚¬Â The misconception came from the fact that two clerks at Bexar County Courthouse, Texas, had said that the divorce case was filed and sealed by a family law judge. TMZ has posted, “Another clerk at the courthouse now tells us sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in charge of sealed cases and says no such case has crossed her desk.”
Drama for nothing. Those two clerks better hide from Eva ’cause she’s known to fight back.
The hell? TMZ reports that basketballer Tony Parker filed for divorce from Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria Parker, his wife of just over three years. B-b-but she was sitting happily on his lap at the 2nd Annual Rally For Kids With Cancer less than a month ago! Nobody’s talking, but E! Online says that Parker—who just hosted the MTV European Music Awards—canceled a planned appearance on an Anderson Cooper Heroes Of 2010 special this weekend. Dirt alert! Dirt alert! If they’re breaking up with this kind of speed, expect some juicy details to come. Check out photos of the couple in the gallery below. [Photo: Getty Images]
