The Mountain’s ‘Tiny’ Girlfriend Answers The One Thing We’re All Wondering About

If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, of course, you know who The Mountain is. The bodyguard of Cersei Lannister is the biggest, scariest, most intimidating character on the show. Not only is he huge, he’s also known to do some pretty wild things on the show, such as popping the head of Pedro Pascal like it was a pumpkin and holding his kid brother, The Hound, against a fire for playing with his toy. Many don’t know that The Mountain is huge both on the show and off the show. Just by looking at his Instagram, one can see how much hard work goes into maintaining his body.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, the actor, and bodybuilder who plays The Mountain, happens to be dating someone who looks absolutely nothing like him. While he stands at a tall 6 feet 9 inches, his girlfriend is pretty much the complete opposite.

His girlfriend, Kelsey, is into fitness and wellness, but she stands at a tiny 5 feet 2 inches–which is much smaller than the almost 7 feet that The Mountain stands. The two, however, make an adorable couple.


Here they are at the recent Game of Thrones series finale premiere, where you can clearly see the height difference.


The first question that pops into everyone’s mind when seeing them has to be–how do they kiss?!? Many people who are fans of Game of Thrones are constantly asking the couple how that really works between them. Does Kelsey have to jump up to reach her man? Does The Mountain bend down to meet Kesley? How does it really work?

Someone on Instagram asked Kelsey:

 “How do you kiss? Do you jump into his arms every time and wrap your legs around his waist? Please post a picture of this impressive action.”

And, surprisingly, she responded saying:

“ah, he bends, I tiptoe. Or just say screw it, pick me up!”

These two are seriously adorable and a true example of opposites attract.
