‘Green Mile’ Actor Doug Hutchison Marries 16-Year-Old Courtney Stodden

Actor Doug Hutchison, who played Percy in The Green Mile and Horace Goodspeed on Lost, just got married. His bride? A sixteen-year-old “aspiring country singer” named Courtney Alexis Stodden. Doug is 51. Clearly, Doug’s publicist knew that the marriage announcement was going to raise some eyebrows, so they released a statement on behalf of the couple: “We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial. But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.” Because the couple married in Nevada, where the legal age for marriage is 18, this means that at least one of Courtney’s parents must have signed a legal consent form. Hey, maybe they can be on an episode of 16 and Pregnant!

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      Whaaaaat? Eeeeeeew!

      Stop the bigotry, people. Charlie Chaplin, Jerry Seinfeld, John Derek, Errol Flynn, Don Johnson, Will Durant, Muhammad Ali, and many other famous men have had romances and marriages with teenagers under 18 when they were much older than their partners. Seinfeld was about two decades older than his girlfriend Shoshanna. Were they “creepy” too? If you answer yes, why don’t you think it is sick that Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher got together when they have 15 years age difference between them? The age 18 is arbitrary and you give it way too much weight!

        The age 18 may be arbitrary, but there’s a big difference between 18 and 25 that should be obvious. I don’t know either of these people, so I don’t know what their relationship is, but there’s a clear power difference between someone who qualifies for AARP and someone who is too young to vote.

      Why is she described as an “aspiring country singer” and not “high school student?”

      • Lilit Marcus

        My guess? Considering how long she’s been trying to stake out an entertainment career, I’m going with homeschooled child star a la Beyonce and the Simpson girls.

      He should know better, he’s way older than this young girl and she’s trying to further her career through him.Other couples that have done this have been over age like Ashton and Demi even though they have like a 14 year difference and Ashton was not 16 when he met Demi.

      She’s 16!!!! There are laws preventing marriage at that age for a reason. Sure the age difference is gross but it’s more about the fact that she doesn’t have the emotional maturity to make this kind of decision and her parents who are supposed to be protecting her are advocating it! WRONG!!!

    • Missy

      I give them less than a year with her age and maturity. This in the limelight will shoot her more out there, and she will be found sleeping with someone else.

    • mara

      he was 35 when she was born. that’s just sick.

      Younger women are so much more open minded and much more clean. Who wants a women with a 500 miles of di_k run through her? I’m 55 and my wife is 22, we have 2 daughters and we’re a very happy family. Most women in America over the age of 50 make most men barf!!!

      • me

        That’s great that you have a loving relationship with a much younger woman but don’t stereotype all women over the age of 55 not all women over age 55 make most men barf and not all women that are 20 stay clean and open minded once they have had children and once they realize that they are married to men over 50 that make them barf.I just stereotyped like you and didn’t like to stereotype but it’s hurtful. There are plenty of beautiful women around the world that are not celebs like the Beautiful Helen Mirren and look alot better than these 20 year olds and this is coming from a woman that is 39 and looks 20.
