I didn’t recognize this guy’s name, but when I saw a picture I thought to myself – “Oh him…he always plays creepy roles.”
Well, he’s pretty creepy in real life as it turns out. The actor has just married a 16 year old girl. Disgusting. I don’t care how “in love” they are – or how he tries to justify what he’s done – it’s disgusting, and it should be illegal.
They say love is timeless but is it ageless too? Apparently it is for ‘Green Mile’ actor, Doug Hutchison, 51, and his 16-year-old bride. Hutchison tied the knot with nearly legal, Courtney Alexis Stodden, an aspiring country singer, on Monday in Las Vegas, according to E! Online. We’re sure that Stodden had an overload of material for her diary this year — a driver’s license and a marriage license!
Hutchison, who is most known for his role as Percy Wetmore in ‘The Green Mile,’ has also appeared in ‘Lost’ and ’24.’ The actor and his new bride share a 35 year age difference — a gap that the couple isn’t trying to hide.
“We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial,” the couple said in a statement released by their spokesperson. “But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.”
According to the Clark County, Nevada Marriage Bureau, both marriage license applicants must be at least 18 years of age. But minors (below the age of 18) are able to obtain a license with the consent of a parent or legal guardian — reasoning that at least one of Stodden’s parents approves of their daughter’s May-December marriage.
Hutchison’s young wife is a former beauty pageant queen and hopes to become the next big thing out of Nashville. Marrying a much older D-list actor is certainly one way to do it — although the couple insists that their union is based purely on genuine love.
Horrible. What’s even more gross – is that it actually IS ILLEGAL… but her parents gave permission for their daughter to marry, making it legal. Great parenting.
