I’m confused. Because I thought we were living in modern, civilized times, but apparently, this is the eighteenth century. 51 year-old Lost actor Doug Anthony Hutchison just married a 16 year-old. How much cattle did he have to trade in to buy her from her father? Isn’t Roman Polanski quarantined in Europe because of something similar?
The actor married aspiring country singer Alexis Stodden in Las Vegas back in May. And I’m sorry, but I refuse to believe this girl is sixteen. Not just because the very idea makes me cringe, but because she looks like she could easily fit in with the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County. If this woman is a day over thirty, she stayed in the womb for a minimum of fifteen years. And managed to get some work done while she was in there.
An announcement on Hutchison’s personal website reads:
“Doug Anthony Hutchison and Courtney Alexis Stodden became husband and wife on Friday May 20th, 2011, at 12 pm in The Little Chapel of Flowers in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mr. and Mrs. Hutchison live together happily ensconced in their Hollywood Hills home with their lil' pups, Everette and Tuna."
Everette and Tuna are probably older than Alexis. Some say age ain’t nothin’ but a number, and it’s true. I mean, when she’s 50, he’ll have been dead for 20 years. All numbers.
Hutchison discussed the 35-year age gap between he and Alexis:
“We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," he said. 'But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."
Then he went back to cleaning up her toys.
