'Lost' Actor In His 50s Gets Married To 16-Year-Old Girl: [ send to a friend ]
Doug Hutchison, who played Dharma leader Horace Goodspeed on 'Lost', has tied the knot with 16-year-old aspiring singer Courtney Alexis Stodden.
The 51-year-old actor, who also appeared in 'The Green Mile' and 'The X-Files', say they decided to get married because they're madly in love with each other.
"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple say in a statement. "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."
Before you ask whether the 16-year-old can legally get married, she can -- as long as she has consent from her parents. And in this case, it appears Stodden's mother has signed off on the marriage.
The other issue is that there's some debate whether that's even her real age since Courtney Alexis Stodden doesn't look anywhere close to 16 and actually appears closer to mid twenties or even thirty.
In fact, we believe that Stodden may be lying to keep a ruse she started a couple of years ago -- to compete in Miss Teen Washington USA -- going. But something is definitely fishy here.
So Doug Hutchison may not be into underage girls after all... or at least that's what we're hoping.
