Sometimes the most unlikely of combinations are the best ones.
1. Oh Lord
This is Kelsey Henson with her boyfriend, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson. He plays The Mountain on Game Of Thrones. Notice anything different about them? Henson has more hair than Björnsson does. She's also a woman, and he's a man. Umm, I don't know what else. I guess it's worth mentioning that Björnsson is about 500x larger than Henson.
2. Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is a professional strongman. He can lift heavy things better than most people can lift heavy things. According to his Instagram bio, Björnsson has been crowned the strongest man in Iceland seven times. I'm not sure if that's impressive since the population of Iceland is four people.
3. Kelsey Henson
Kelsey Henson is a fitness guru with a degree in Occupational Health and Safety from the University of Arizona. She lifts weights too, but the weights are much smaller than the ones that Björnsson lifts. If they had a weight-lifting contest, Henson would probably die.
Wanna sword fight this guy? It would probably be easy because you'd be so much faster than him. In Game of Thrones, Björnsson's character plays the bad guy, recruited by Cersei to literally crush her enemies' skulls, which, if you ask me, is not cool. In real life, Björnsson claims to be quite the sweetheart.
5. Just A Fan
Henson met Björnsson in September and asked the now-famous actor for a photo, which she excitedly posted on Instagram. Months later, more pictures surfaced on Henson's account that showed the pair vacationing, implying that the couple struck up a romantic relationship after their chance encounter.
6. King Of Iceland
Some of the vacation photos included pictures from Iceland, Björnsson's native country. You can kind of tell that's where he's from based on his name, right? Hafþór sounds more Icelandic than Steve. I wonder if all men from Iceland are that huge. Seems plausible; there are only four.
Kelsey Henson also posted an image of her with her giant man while they vacationed in Spain, which serves to illustrate their size difference. She looks like a child sitting on a version of Santa Claus who play rugby and drinks a lot of gin.
8. Size Difference
The size difference between the couple prompted curious questions from fans, mainly, "How do you guys kiss?" Henson replied to the comments candidly, saying, "Ahha he bends, I tip toe. Or just say screw it, pick me up!" That's not very fair. She should pick him up every once in awhile. He measures in at 6'9."
9. Fight The Mountain
Henson recently posted an image that pokes fun of her new relationship, wearing a T-shirt that reads, "Training to fight the mountain." Honestly, she should not do that. She would lose that fight. In addition to being Iceland's strongest man seven times, Björnsson won the title of Europe's strongest man three times. Henson hasn't even been Europe's strongest man once.
10. Tiny Trucks
Look at this wuss pulling a truck. He thinks he's so cool. I'll bet there aren't even people on that truck. I'll bet the truck is super short, and you can't see how short it is because the back is outside of the frame. Plus they're letting him use a rope, and that's pretty much cheating.
11. Tiny Man
Look at this video. You think Björnsson is tough? Then why is he fighting that tiny, tiny man? I think it's because he's scared. Anyone can fight a man that tiny. Oh wait, that's Conor McGregor.
12. Gentle Giant
In conclusion, look at this humongous man with his tiny dog. Think about how easy it would be for that man to kill that dog. Think about how difficult it would be for that dog to kill that man. Either way, it's cute that they're hanging out. What a sweet man. I hope he's never mad at me.
