George Stephanopoulos is a very talented news anchor, but even he is not exempt from body shaming. He stands only 5 foot 6, while his co-hosts on "Good Morning America" stand much taller, even the women. #Page 6 reported on Wednesday that the set of the show has been redesigned to cover the short legs of the veteran journalist. Twitter followers called it body shaming, but that didn't keep them from adding funny memes about the anchor's height.

It is interesting because, while Page 6 mocked Stephanopoulos for being short, they inadvertently did it as a way to also mock Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts by calling them "human trees." The newspaper went on to say that "#Good Morning America" had considered using elevated chairs but decided not to because that would have added to the problem because George's legs would be dangling.

It was revealed that about a month ago, the anchor desk was fitted with a silver panel across the front to hide the way that George usually rests his feet on his chair.

George's height

Those who have seen Stephanopoulos and listened to him know that he is tall in a lot of ways. He is talented, creative, and he knows everything there is to know about politics. No one knows more than he does when it comes to being a political journalist. He reports the news in a way that even his critics admire.

While most people give up or want to give up on interviews with Kellyanne Conway, George doesn't let her get away with anything. He challenges her and corrects her when she says something wrong.

George is very knowledgeable, and the way he reports the news has absolutely nothing to do with how short he is.

Page 6 and others might mock Stephanopoulos for being short, but it didn't keep him from marrying comedian and actress Alexandra "Ali" Wentworth who is taller than he is. They have been married for 16 years. They have two beautiful daughters together, Elliott and Harper.

Other short men

There are many celebrity husbands who are shorter than their wives. Katie Holmes isn't married to Tom Cruise now, but she is two inches taller than he is. It was reported that she began wearing high heels after their divorce. Cruise's first wife, Nicole Kidman is taller than he is. Kidman's current husband Keith Urban is also shorter than she is. Kidman once dated Lenny Kravitz. He is four inches shorter than she is.

Cameron Diaz is 5 foot 9 inches and her husband Benji Madden is 5 foot 6 inches. Tina Fey, who is short, standing at only 5 foot 5 inches herself, is two inches taller than her husband.

Kevin Hart, who is 5 foot 4 inches, is shorter than most people, including his wife. However, he doesn't whine about it. Instead, he has used his height to make lots of money as an actor and comedian. #George Stephanopoulos
