Little ladies do not have the awesome life that most of us envision for them. They are not able to reach anything on the top shelf or open jars on their own. There are even instances where they are forced to shop for clothes in the junior miss department if they wish to find the right fit. The majority of straight women do prefer the company of taller men, though.
This makes dating life somewhat easier for all of the pint sized lady folks out there. For some women, a slightly smaller partner is preferable. Being with a man who is very tall will only serve to magnify the height difference. There are some people who are simply not willing to let height play a role in their relationships. Mountain from Game of Thrones is just such a person.
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is Mountain’s real name and his size is what allowed him to seize the role. He played basketball before the show (of course) and was also a strongman. The 6 foot 9 inch actor weighs in at a massive 400 pounds. This is his first major acting job of any kind. He is actually the third actor to have stepped into Mountain’s humongous shoes.
The two actors who played the role before him both stood 7 feet or taller. These men might be able to look down on the new Mountain, but this is nothing compared to the height difference between Björnsson and his girlfriend. Kelsey Henson met Björnsson earlier this year and the two immediately hit it off. They took a picture that highlighted their height difference on the first night that they met.
From there? The rest was history. It was not long before the man known as Mountain was taking his new flame to his native Iceland to show her around (and show her off). The size difference between the two is absolutely staggering and we cannot take our eyes off of their photos. This is one of the most eye popping duos that we have ever seen.
One Instagram user couldn’t control their curiosity any longer, and asked the following question to Kelsey:
“How do you kiss? Do you jump in his arms every time and wrap your legs around his waist? Please post a picture of this impressive action.”
To this, Kelsey replied, “ahha he bends, I tip toe. Or just say screw it, pick me up!”
We wish these two all of the best in the future. We also hope that they have a good sense of humor about all of the photo ops that are ahead of them. These hilarious photos show that they are definitely in on the joke and we are laughing right along with them. All of the best to Kelsey and her new, hulking boo.
