Doug Hutchison, Courtney Stodden Interview

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: The most controversial couple in Hollywood has broken their silence. 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison and his 16-year-old singer wife, Courtney Stodden, sat down with "Good Morning America's" Lara Spencer to give their side of the story. Filmed in and around their Hollywood Hills home, the couple looked happy and relaxed as they explained how they met. Stodden, an aspiring actress, found Hutchison's acting workshop website. The two started a correspondence that Stodden turned romantic. Hutchison initially thought she was in her 20's, based on her photos, and was shocked to learn the girl he had fallen for was only 16: "My world turned up-side-down." Thankfully for the couple-to-be, Stodden's parents both supported their union and made it legal for them to marry in Nevada in May of this year. 39 states allow 16-year-olds to marry older spouses with parental consent. Regarding all of the controversy and online hatred the couple is weathering, Hutchison said, "We knew this was going to happen." The rest of the in-depth interview airs Friday night, July 15th on ABC's "Nightline."
