Contrary to what you might think, Dennis Quaid wasn’t out there looking for a woman 39 years younger than him.  But hey, why not, right?

Dennis is 65, and he recently got engaged to a 29-year-old PhD student named Laura Savoie.

He says, quote, “I didn’t go out looking for an age gap or someone really younger than me.  I met her at a business event and then the relationship developed. You have no control over who you fall in love with.

“I don’t fall in love easy.  But I can’t let what a few people think control all that.  I’ve been married three times and this is the final one, I know it is.  I feel like I have a real partner in life.
