Green Mile Actor, 51, Marries 16-Year-Old Aspiring Country Singer; Says "True Love Can Be Ageless"

Hollywood has seen its fair share of odd couplings, but this one is so out there even the newlyweds know it's a little weird.
Doug Hutchison, a character actor best known for roles in The Green Mile, Lost and The X-Files, married aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden on May 20 in Las Vegas.
He is 51. She is 16.
Is there something fishy about it? In an exclusive statement to E! News, the couple insists there's not.
With Stodden, a former beauty pageant queen (she was in the running for Miss Teen Washington USA (http://www.misswashingtonusa.com/contestants.php?page=1&pageant=mt&year=2010) last year), trying to position herself (http://www.courtneystodden.com/) as a potential Nashville star, you might think there's more to the story than middle-age actor marrying pretty teenager (and that's a lot of story, itself). However, the newlyweds tell us they're just mad about each other.
"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple said through their spokeswoman.
"But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."
What do you think?

On my island you can get married at the tender age of 14, but you need the consent of both parents. I think it's the same in the USA.

Well, the German actor (who played a private detective) :tape: in this long forthcoming book called The White Mile married some naive Suisse tennis player in late 2003, after her money kept his crooked ass out of jail for Financial Fraud a year earlier. :devil:

Oh, DaMamaJama posting the only liberal response in this thread. :oh:

Anyway, I'm assuming they are of legal age, so this is a non-issue. I don't see why people need to concern themselves with this, especially that they know nothing about the inside of their relationship. There are better things to worry about

So . . . . when two people of legal age of the same sex want to get married it's something to support BUT
when two people of legal age with a wide(very) difference in their ages get married it's disgusting?

Okay, I get it now.

Doug Hutchison always looked young for his age. He was 39 when he played Percy (who was like in his early 20s) in the Green Mile and I'd never have believed it. :eek:

Okay, I get it now.These are not even the same issues. You can find something disgusting, but still support its legality.

Personally the most disturbing thing about this piece of news is how old she looks.

Yeah, cause acceptance of homosexuality is all about legalizing gay marriage.

These are very good comparisons. The whole point is not to judge generally eccentric relationships just because they don't fly with you.

You know as well as I do that pov and DMmJm do not subscribe to whatever "point" being made. They are guilty of the same kind of inconsistency they are trying to point out. Except probably worse, because last time I checked, no one in this thread has insinuated that this marriage should be made illegal.

They are the ones confounding legality with social acceptance. Not me.

I don't appreciate people "judging" this relationship, but I like even less that the mere fact that there are people judging it is used as ammunition against support for gay marriage. It doesn't even make sense. Anyway, judgment is an inherent part of our interactions with the world - the idea is not to be obnoxious about it. If we were to stop judging, why stop at eccentric relationships? For instance, I'm totally judging this girl's looks. But that's another topic.

I took pov's "support" not necessarily restricted to accepting a legalization of marriage, but to endorse the relationship (I'm probably giving him too credit here). There's an inconsistency, and it was correct to point it out, and if it was used as ammunition against gay marriage, it was done very implicitely and the point is too non-sensical to merit attention and detracts from a bigger and more important point.

The root of homophobia is when people judge the relationship in negative terms. And it's exactly what's being done in this thread to another form of a relationship that involves two consenting adults, which really moves the discussion into the territory of the anti-gay folk. It's then valid to argue on their own terms about the validity of relationships: how natural is it, and bla bla.


. Anyway, judgment is an inherent part of our interactions with the world - the idea is not to be obnoxious about it. If we were to stop judging, why stop at eccentric relationships? For instance, I'm totally judging this girl's looks. But that's another topic.

You're right that "judgment is an inherent part.." but instead of judgment I would use "preference". Instead of pointing out obnoxiousness as a parameter, which I think is too vague, I would suggest objectivity/subjectivity of our assessments. In some forms of assessments, we acknolwedge that ours is equally (in)valid as any other being made and there's no absolute one/correct way and that it's only tied and related to our subjective experience, and in another form we can assume that there is a positive/right way in the abstract and absolute sense. That also sets the difference between judging relationships and looks when it's done in the common way: there's alot of the latter type than the former when it comes to relationships, primarily because there's a lot less personal agency and a lot more abstraction. It's the difference between "I don't like to be in this kind of relationship" and "this relationship is gross".

LOL :D this is ridiculous. So homosexuality and gay marriage rights are equal to the feelings someone has about a 51 marrying a 16 year old? :lol: I don't think anyone here is denying the rights of the young girl to marry this older man, or are against the legality of it all. Where does this connection or comparison come about? What's next, interracial marriage?

Same remark to moby: gay rights or the rights of any relationship do not stop at legality. This is what is ridiculous. Just because you approve of the legality of the relationship doesn't mean you approve of the relationship per se. When you judge the relationship in negative terms, regardless of whether you approve of it legally or not, you're creating social stigma, which is as much of an issue if not more than the issue of legality. Legality is only one SMALL part of the fight for acceptance. If a person approves of gay marriage and still treats a homosexual relationship that he/she is not involved in in negative terms, he's still a homophobe. Why don't people translate this into this situation is beyond me.

As for the connection: it's pretty simple. It's a connection of you not wanting to be in this kind of relationship and judging this kind of relationship involving other people in negative terms. They are intimately connected. The mere fact that people don't understand it make them create social stigma and negativity around it. It's exactly the same issue facing homosexuals by straight people and the root of homophobia. It's hypocritical, I think, and certainly disappointing that you get the response that you do by mostly gay members.

Great posts by Apoleb throughout this thread. :yeah:

Admittedly, 16 is a very young age to get married it is true. But as humans we all mature at different rates and this girl does seem to have grown up quite quickly. At the end of the day if both individuals are happy and the marriage works for them, then I say good for them.
