Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison, 51, shocked many with his controversial marriage to 16-year-old Courtney Stodden.

Krista, who stepped out in Los Angeles with her daughter and Green Mile actor Doug earlier today, is not perturbed by the 35-year age gap.
'I see why they’re together, he looks like he’s in his early 30s, and Courtney looks like he’s in her late 20s,' she told the website.
'It’s like they’re talking about someone else when they say bad things about Doug. He’s with my daughter and I wouldn’t want a creepy guy with my daughter. He’s a wonderful, great man.'
Fame game: Courtney, who is an aspiring actress and singer wore her usual full face of makeup as she headed out today
Krista looked more than happy as she ran errands with the unlikely couple.
Courtney, who is a wannabe singer and actress, wore her usual full face of makeup in a black strapless dress and platform heels.
She joined her husband of three months, who wore a more casual ensemble of khaki shorts and polo shirt.
Radar has also reported that Krista has become Courtney's manager and has moved in next door to her daughter in Los Angeles.
