Actor Doug Hutchison, 51, has found love… with a 16-year-old aspiring pop singer.
The actor, whose most notable recent role was as Dharma leader Horace Godspeed in “Lost,” and who has also appeared in “The Green Mile” and “The X-Files,” announced he married teenager Courtney Stodden last month.
“Doug Anthony Hutchison and Courtney Alexis Stodden became husband and wife on Friday May 20, 2011, at 12 PM in The Little Chapel of Flowers in Las Vegas, Nevada,” he posted on his website. “Mr. and Mrs. Hutchison live together happily ensconced in their Hollywood Hills home with their lil’ pups, Everette and Tuna!”
A rep for the couple acknowledged the couple’s drastic age gap, but stressed they are in love.
“We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial,” the couple said in a statement to Access Hollywood via their rep. “But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.”
The couple’s rep confirmed to Access that Courtney is indeed 16 and said the singer’s mother gave permission for her daughter to marry the actor.
