Gary Coleman married a 22-year-old!



Garycoleman Just when you think Gary Coleman is a gentle footnote to our beloved '80s, he goes out and does something bizarre. People Magazine is reporting that 40-year-old Coleman has married 22-year-old Shannon Price, whom he met on a movie set last year.

I'm not sure what's more unbelievable -- that our favorite "Diff'rent Strokes" star married someone 18 years younger than him ... or that he was actually on a movie set last year. (Click here to see the official wedding photo on the People website.

Price, who stands 5-foot-7, married 4-foot-8 Coleman "on a mountaintop," Coleman told Inside Edition. "Nobody was around but the minister, preacher, the videographers, the photographer, the helicopter pilot and us."

Right, because it's not a celebrity wedding with a helicopter pilot.

For what it's worth, Price claims she didn't know of Coleman's celebrity when they met. "I didn't grow up with Diff'rent Strokes," she told People. "I actually didn't like watching TV when I was younger."

(What 'choo talkin' about, Shannon? Just ask your parents. They were probably checking out "Arnold Jackson" back in the '80s.)
