Dennis Quaid 65 engaged to 26 year old PHD college Student

Great Balls of Fire!

Is she the same age as his daughter?

He is fun guy to watch in movies though I would never consider him a great actor.




At 65 years old, Dennis Quaid plans on tying the knot – for the fourth time.


The “Great Balls of Fire” actor proposed to his girlfriend while they were in Hawaii to promote his new film.


Laura Savoie is a 26-year old University of Texas Ph.D. student Quaid started dating in June, according to reports.
The proposal reportedly took place at sunset and caught the millennial, who was previously linked to Jeremy Piven, 54, off guard

"She was actually taking a selfie of us, and I put the ring in front and said, 'Will you marry me?' — and then she fell down," he revealed.

The upcoming nuptials will mark Savoie’s first marriage.

“The Big Easy” actor was previously married to actresses P.J. Soles, Meg Ryan and real-estate agent Kimberly Buffington.

I always thought he was sexy. Though, he's getting a bit too slender in his old age, imho.

This shit is so crazy and just seems wrong on all levels.

I would find it very creepy to date someone by daughters age (27).

We weren't dating, more like co-worker with benefits, but she was closer in age to my son than me. Tried not to think of that.

Re: Dennis Quaid 65 engaged to 26 year old PHD college Student

Three prior marriages that ended in divorce and now wants to marry a woman who is almost 40 years his junior and that he just started dating four months ago?

This is also an interesting wrinkle:

The proposal reportedly took place at sunset and caught the millennial, who was previously linked to Jeremy Piven, 54, off guard
I'm sure there is a good story that explains how this 26 year-old grad student in Texas has dated two different famous actors.

His brother Randy (Who's far from normal himself) said: "Feel sorry for my 1/2 brother who I haven’t seen in decades. Proposing to someone 40 years younger is sad & inappropriate. Our mother’s recent death obviously hit him hard. Hopefully for this young woman this relationship’s just a phase in processing his grief because it’s sick."

As for me.. If they are both happy.. then I have no problem with it

The Quaid is awesome. I don't agree with the marriage part since he could just bang away instead of committing to her. He's been married a bunch of times already. But that is the dream. Being old and banging a younger chick.

She looks like a prettier version of Sondra Locke.

He looks like an older version of Dennis Quaid.

Don't those guys think it's weird to date someone and have a lot in common with her father?

Of course, a lot of them aren't interested in their minds.

But she's a PhD student. She's no bimbo.

But marrying an accountant can be good for your retirement plans.

Good for him. Not many at his age get a chance to find love again. Whether the marriage lasts, who knows, but I'm happy for him right now.

Hey, I've met plenty of PhD candidates over the years who were also bimbos.

My mom often dates people younger than me.

People seem to do it a quite often around here. I have a friend who at 19 married a 55 year old. Now they're still married 11 years later.
