Shaquille O’Neal stands taller than the masses — and that’s a big part of his charm.
The 7-foot-1 superstar has used height to his advantage his whole life, first in the NBA and now as an analyst for the league. He’s clearly taller than most people that he meets — including his lady — and he has some fun with that. Enter Victoria Beckham. The Spicy singer turned designer did a press event to announce her collaboration with Reebok — and O’Neal, who also works with the brand, was there. Or, more accurately, up there.

The photos of them play up their height difference. In one, she’s standing on a wooden box. In the next image, the heel-obsessed fashionista quipped on social media, “Chose today not to wear heels??”

There are a whole host of celebs who have been shrimped by Shaq — like Kelly Ripa.

And itty bitty Simone Biles.
Tiny Kevin Hart knows where he stands next to the NBA great.

Meredith Vieira got wise when she had him on her show. Ladder, please!
Ditto Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Jordin Sparks, when they all met on the set of Fox & Friends. They stepped up to even things out.
And Gordon Ramsay is definitely standing on something.
Back in the day, Shaq looked down at a young Justin Bieber.
Jimmy Fallon once went swimming in Shaq’s suit.
For Jessica Simpson, Shaq did some magic, appearing to be shorter than she is.
He once made Breckin Meyer feel small by hoisting him over his head.
And he shut down Nick Cannon with just one hand.
All these photos prove that some of the best celeb photo ops ever involve Shaq, so if you see him, be sure to ask. He won’t be hard to miss.
