The actor married the teenage country singer back in May and later confessed that he had struggled to cope with their 35-year age gap.
However, the Green Mile villain clarified to E! that he had never been "afraid" of going public with his love for Stodden.
"We had a lot of people, especially in my camp, because I'm in this profession, suggesting we keep [the relationship] under wraps for fear of the repercussions of whatever - career, perception - and I was adamant that I didn't want to hide," he said.
"I believe there's one rule in Hollywood, and that's that there are no rules. That also can apply to love, and there are no rules, so... Was I afraid [of going public]? No."
Hutchison even claimed that he had been offered more opportunities in Hollywood since his relationship with Stodden went "viral".
"What's kind of blown my mind about how this has all gone so global and viral is that I have had more opportunity now," he said. "I've been courted by producers, directors, agents, record executives... I don't think love is a career killer."
