Teen Bride Courtney Stodden’s 51-year-old husband Doug Hutchison doesn’t want art imitating life. has learned that the 17-year-old’s husband pulled out of a movie role because he was concerned about the “sexual content.”

Doug was set to star in the movie The Genesis of Lincoln where he would play a man who is a director that has a “strange and scandalous relationship with the teenage pop star he casts,” according to the production company.

“I know it's gonna surprise a lot of people to hear this," writer/producer/director Richard O'Sullivan said about The Green Mile and Lost actor, "but Doug 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."

Doug’s controversial marriage to then 16-year-old Courtney in May shocked the nation, but the director felt that he was the right actor for the part, despite his own scandalous life.

"Initially, it seemed like perfect casting, playing on the parallels,” O'Sullivan said. "But eventually I think Doug and the character became too intertwined. Doug's a wonderful guy, a brilliant actor, and a terrific creative collaborator. Ultimately though, they're not one and the same. The character at points is not nearly as sympathetic and as likeable as Doug, and this is coming from someone who likes Doug a lot."
