“I know it’s gonna surprise a lot of people to hear this … but Doug [Hutchinson] was legitimately concerned about some of the sexual content and how people might not be able to separate who he is as a person from the character he was playing.”
– Director Richard O’ Sullivan on Doug Hutchinson‘s moral and ethical reservations about starring in the “The Genesis of Lincoln,” a film about a director who has “a strange and scandalous relationship with the teenage pop star he casts.” Hmmm. The storyline sounds vaguely familiar. Some parts hit a little too close to home. I suppose he doesn’t want to be typecast for the rest of his career as “the lecherous dude who has a thing for teenage girls.” Ick. [ONTD]
True love knows no bounds. I mean, who are we to come between grammar expert Courtney Stodden and her new hubby Doug Hutchinson? How can we judge a couple of
fame whores undeniable romantics who are just looking to make some quick cash off a reality show share their joy with the world? After all, age ain’t nothing but cause for statutory rape charges a number.
Actress/country singer Courtney Stodden, 16, and Doug Hutchinson of “Lost,” 51, can’t stop talking about how in love they are. After stopping by “Good Morning America” last week, they sat down for an interview with E! Online. Many things will strike you as odd about this clip, aside from Courtney’s strange mugging with gritted teeth, as if she were going to inhale her husband like a tube of GoGurt. For example, the two talk about their sex life. Doug explains, “Courtney was Christian and saving herself for marriage. I’ve got to say, if there’s only one caveat to the ocean between our age difference, I wished I was a virgin when we met.”
At which point, Courtney starts laughing hysterically. “It’s fine that he wasn’t! It’s all good!” she says. “He’s a tiger!” Keep reading »
“This couple really has to deal with the ‘ick’ factor.” Yikes. We should all be so lucky to have “Good Morning America” introduce a segment on our marriage this way. “GMA” checked in with 16-year-old Courtney Alexis Stodden, an aspiring pop star, and her 51-year-old husband, Doug Hutchinson, an actor. The segment danced around some of the very real potential psychological issues that it could have raised about a union such as this. Sure it’s legal, but is a 35-year age difference (even if she’s an “old soul”) sexually predatory? Has Courtney Stodden been “groomed” for sexual relationships with older men, despite being a virgin on her wedding night? I’m assuming the show had to skirt around any suggestion of that in order to lock down the interview.
They certainly seem happy together, but I can’t help but think something seems … off … especially the woozy look in Courtney’s eyes about halfway through the video when she’s staring at her husband. Judge for yourself. [Mediaite] Keep reading »
