Doug Hutchison Courtney Stodden Four-month Courtship, Though news of Doug Hutchison’s marriage to 16-year-old aspiring singer Courtney Stodden was met with criticism and outrage, the couple says their union is nothing but “beautiful.”
Speaking out for the first time since their May wedding came to light last month, Stodden reveals how she first met the 51-year-old actor, who is best known for playing an abusive prison guard in the Oscar-nominated film “The Green Mile.”
“The way we met was really beautiful,” Stodden told “Good Morning America” anchor Lara Spencer. “My mother was managing my career. Her friend told my mother that [Hutchison was] holding some workshops for acting. And I was very interested in acting. So what better way than to connect that way?”
Stodden first sent Hutchison a business-related e-mail that she described as “totally innocent.” But the couple’s interaction quickly turned romantic when Stodden made her first move.
“She was being very flirtatious,” Hutchison said.
“Well come on, he’s so handsome,” the former beauty queen replied.
Hutchison said he initially thought the mature-looking Stodden he’d seen on her website was well into her twenties. But after learning she was only under the legal age, Hutchison said his “world turned upside down.”
“It didn’t make me want to walk away, but it definitely was a struggle inside my heart,” he admitted, “because I had already started falling for her.”
Hutchison said he was at a low point in his life before meeting Stodden.
Despite the 35-year age difference, the two began a four-month courtship via email and phone. Through this, they said they bonded on a deep and spiritual level.
“It was a really beautiful and unique way to get to know someone, because we didn’t have the distraction of the physical. We could only get to know each other through our words and our sentiments,” Hutchison said.
Stodden’s mother, Krista, was aware that Hutchison was decades older than her daughter and even monitored the couple’s exchanges. And when their budding romance began to develop into something more serious, the actor called Stodden’s parents to ask for their blessing.
