Once there lived a young California girl, who wanted to become an actress. Two years ago that girl turned into one of the most buzzed about celebrities of the 21st century.
In 2010 Stodden wanted to become an actress so she signed up for an acting workshop recommended by a family friend. The workshop was being taught by actor Doug Hutchison. Hutchison didn’t know at the time that Stodden was a teenager, which resulted in them having an online exchange which lasted between four and six months. When Hutchison found out Stodden’s age, he turned to her mother Krista, promising that he would end things with Stodden if her parents disapproved. Her mother had been monitoring the virtual relationship between her daughter and Hutchison so was already aware of what was going on, and Stodden’s parents allowed their daughter to make the decision about whether to keep in touch with Hutchinson for herself.
Courtney Stodden married Doug Hutchison in May 2011. Their actions caused unbelievable media uproar because at that time Stodden was only 16 years old, while Hutchison was already in his 50s. He was labelled as a pedophile, while Stodden became the new It girl of reality TV.
