The teenage wife of Lost star Doug Hutchinson auditioned to appear in an advert for FreeCreditScore.com, but her spot was deemed too risqué, according to the 17-year-old.
She said to Radar Online: "Even though my commercial went viral internationally and was the most popular, I am apparently too dang sexy for FreeCreditScore.com."
The advertisement, which sees Stodden appear as a mermaid, sees two friends fishing for dinner, and after catching one bite-size fish, they finally catch Stodden.
The blonde's only line in the video is "OMG. I'm so…wet," as she emerges out of the water shaking.
In an email to Radar Online, a spokesperson for FreeCreditScore.com said that Stodden hadn't been hired, approved or paid to promote their website.
"She and a production team were among dozens of creative producers who responded on spec to a posting on Poptent.net, a crowdsourced video production service, where brands and agencies post specific video assignments to generate creative concepts for review and consideration by a brand.
"Neither Courtney Stodden, nor her production team, were selected or funded for any FreeCreditScore.com advertisement, nor was she hired to be a representative of the brand," they added.
