How Tall is Charlie Hunnam Compared to His Fiancee Morgana McNelis?
Charlie Hunnam doesn’t just dwarf a lot of the world’s male population, but he is also in a relationship with a woman who appears to be well above average in height when compared to other female species of the world. The British actor’s fiancee, Morgana McNelis, is officially 5 feet 9.5 inches tall.
Going by the average height of the American female population, the American actress and jewelry business owner is at least 5 inches taller than the average American female and even some males for that matter. Impressive though her height may be, she is at least 3 inches shorter than her fiance, Charlie Hunnam, who stands at 6 feet 1inch, officially.
It’s now becoming quite fashionable and trendy for female celebrities to be tall. Most filmmakers even make it a requirement for their leading actresses to be well above the average American female height of 5 feet 4 inches. This height adjustment is not only becoming more of a thing among actresses but also among other celebrities, including musicians and models.
Hunnam’s fiancee, McNelis, while not predominantly a model or an actress, the beautiful and talented businesswoman’s height puts her in a really illustrious company of several Hollywood household names and celebrities like Adele, Serena Williams, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sophie Turner, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Blake Lively, Cameron Diaz, Bella Hadid, even with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, amongst several others.
Born and raised in Georgia, United States of America, on July 9, 1983, Morgana McNelis and Charlie Hunnam met through her jewelry business. The couple officially started dating in 2005 and have been together for 18 years. Charlie initially believed that marriage was an unnecessary way for them to prove their love to each other, most likely due to his negative personal experience of the marriage institution.
However, it would appear that the British actor has changed his mind about it since they are now officially engaged following the private ceremony organized to mark the momentous occasion on March 9, 2016. There had been no news of any marriage ceremony since the engagement though.
