The couple that took the internet by storm, 16-year-old Courtney Stodden and her 51-year-old actor husband Doug Hutchison, are still making headlines now that Courtney’s mother, Krista Stodden, is speaking out, defending her new son-in-law.
“He’s not creepy. He is such a great guy, he’s so intelligent.”
“I see why they’re together, he looks like he’s in his early 30s, and Courtney looks like he’s in her late 20s,” she says.
“Hold your judgment back, the goodness comes and overwhelms people who meet them.
“It’s like they’re talking about someone else when they say bad things about Doug. He’s with my daughter and I wouldn’t want a creepy guy with my daughter.”
“He’s a wonderful, great man.”
Courtney is an aspiring actress and singer, while Doug is most famously recognized as playing opposite Tom Hanks in The Green Mile as the abusive prison guard. The couple have been married since May of this year.
