Doug Hutchison & Courtney Alexis StoddenCreepy actor Doug Hutchison -- best known for playing that mean and awful death row guard named Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile and smaller roles in TV shows Lost and The X-Files -- recently entered into a marriage of the most creepiest proportions -- and legally.
Here's the deal -- Hutchison is 51 years old, and his new bride Courtney Alexis Stodden is a mere 16 years old!!! That's right. She's just a child and yet their "consensual" marriage to one another is as legal as they come apparently, thanks to none other than Courtney's own mother!
Way to be a pervy creep and ruin a young girl's life, Hutchison! Way to look out for your daughter, Moms! Is anyone sane in this really freakish situation?
Before I launch into my ICKYEWWGROSS tirade, I would like to ask to see Courtney's birth certificate. Plastic surgery aside, she sure doesn't look 16! But then again, who can guess adolescent girls' ages anymore? Half of them look older than I do. Just had to put that out there. Now on to the tirade ...
It's bad enough that we were all going to be forced to stand by and watch as 25-year-old Crystal Harris walked up the aisle to Hugh Hefner, the 85-year-old Playboy great granddaddy, before she backed out at the last minute. But at least she is of legal adult age and old enough to know better -- or at least old enough to have a lawyer weigh the possible financial perks of marrying the old dude, whatever her reason.
However, who's looking out for young Courtney? Not creepy Hutchison. Not Moms.
In fact, mom Krista Stodden admits she signed the parental consent form, which made it completely legal for the couple to wed in Las Vegas, Nevada last month. She told RadarOnline:
Doug is a wonderful man and we love him. They are very much in love and we are so supportive of this.
Um, ewwwww! What 16-year-old doesn't fall madly "in love" for the first guy that shows her some attention? Isn't it up to parents to keep reminding these young girls that they have a whole long life ahead and marrying your 51-year-old creepy boyfriend might not be the best offer you're going to get out there. Not to mention he's, well, pretty much a pedophile.
Krista also said, "Courtney was a virgin when she married Doug. She is a good Christian girl." So she's obviously got some sort of screw loose. That or she hasn't seen this video ...
(Oh did I mention Courtney is also a pop singer hopeful?)
I don't know. Am I just a judgmental old lady who can't possibly see any good or normalcy in this marriage? Am I too cynical for believing there's more to this story? Like pedophilia or forged birth certificates or wishful pop star careers that beg for any and all kinds of press? Do I just need to relax? Hmm, I don't think so.
What do you think of this marriage? Totally wrong or just fine if they're both happy?
