Actor Doug Hutchison, 51, has married 16-year-old Courtney Alexis Stodden, an aspiring country singer. That's right, the Green Mile, X-Files and Lost actor has married a young, beautiful blonde who is 35 years younger than he is. As they say, only in Hollywood.

"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple admits. "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless." In their wedding photo, the 50-something actor can be seen clutching his teen bride, who is wearing a sexy strapless white wedding gown.

Hutchison's most high-profile role was as bad boy prison guard Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile starring Tom Hanks. On Lost, he played Horace Goodspeed, and on The X-Files, he played Eugene Tooms. He's also appeared in Con Air, Batman & Robin and I Am Sam, as well as 24, CSI: Miami and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

The new bride is a beauty pageant star and aspiring country singer. At 12, she became a model, and at 15, she competed in the Miss Washington USA pageant.

The couple was married in Las Vegas on May 20, where state law requires a parent must give consent for a minor to obtain a marriage license.

Is 16 too young to get married?

Well, Dee Dee Ramone, one of the greatest rockers ever, married a teenager when he was in his 40s, and their marriage didn't last too long, but it ended in death, not divorce. I say as long as the parents are happy and the girl is happy and noone's pushed her into it, and as long as they met in a safe environment, i.e. he's not the kinda guy that hangs out around the school gates, then I say good luck to them.

Its truly know ones business but the parents and the girl getting married plus she will be way better off married to this rich guy instead of some thuged out punk kid in highschool. Americans just love getting into everyones business and Americans always think they know what's better for everyone elese and it needs to stop!

I think 16 is way to young to get married... and a 35 year (he's 50) difference in age is a more than just a little creepy in a pedophilia way … but Doug Hutchison ewwwwwww… WTH are her family thinking???

Honestly if they say they married for true love, then true love would last until she was an adult. What is two years anyways if they are in love as they claim to be. Sure it would still be a shocking age difference but she would be eighteen, could legally make her own decisions, she would be slightly more mature and her psyche would be more developed. At this point in time I would have to agree that there is something off with a man who dates a young girl who is not full mature and emotionally stable for something like marriage to what can only be assumed to be a pedophile. (After all if a 51 year old can marry a 16 year and claim true love he is opening up a world of bad because other pedophiles will prey and try this approach now and think nothing of it because.. "true love is ageless".) We can thank this actor for being an dumbass and opening young children up to new ways to be victimized.

So what - people used to get married when they were 16 all the time. She's hot.

I have to agree with you. there is no way she is 16. She looks way older than that. It'd be interesting if someone could find a birth cert. of something.

Although this couple seems to be very happy, what's really going on? I mean seriously, is she really 16!/ from the looks of it, 16 might just be a "stage" age, no different from other singers/actors lieing about their true identity. But 16!! come on now, more like 26....As far as the husband to be, is he just a pedophile using his love as an excuse for what he truly is? which in my opinon, is a sick, perverted pedophile on all levels... "that's if she truly is 16?" As far as her parents,what's wrong with you people? isn't she still in high school? Why would you be so stupid and marry your daughter off to a man that could be her father!! this relationship makes for a good country song!! Curious, why in the world is this man frequenting the playgrounds looking for children to marry anyway!? sicko!!
