Doug Hutchison, an actor with starring credits in The Green Mile and television shows Lost and X-Files has just got married. Which is lovely news for the 51-year-old.
However, what may have you spluttering in your coffee, is the news that his lovely bride is 16. Yes, you read that right. The groom was 51 and the bride all of sweet sixteen.
Controversial news in any language. However, the couple insist that “true love is ageless”. Hutchison married Courtney Alexis Stodden in Las Vegas on May 20th.
Scoff not, oh ye of little faith! The newlyweds have released an exclusive statement via a representative to E!News, which reads: “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.”
Stodden is an aspiring country singer hoping to make it in Nashville, and a previous beauty pageant winner.
According to Clark County Nevada law, marriage applicants must be aged 18 and over or parental consent is required. I’ll make no comment on that one.
I guess if an 85 year old Hefner can get it on with mid 20 somethings, why can’t a 51 year old marry his one, true love. OK relax, you can put your eyebrows down now. Any bets on how long this one is going to last?
Instead of bedtime stories, maybe hubby can sing this to his wife:
Oh, the scandal!
