Dennis William QuaidDennis William Quaid (born April 9, 1954) is an American actor. Raised in Texas, he became known during the 1980s after appearing in several successful films, and established a career as a Hollywood actor.
Quaid was raised Baptist and is a practicing Christian.
Quaid married actress P.J. Soles on November 25, 1978. The two divorced on January 23, 1983. Quaid’s second marriage was to Meg Ryan on February 14, 1991 (Valentine’s Day). Quaid and Ryan have a son, Jack Henry (born April 24, 1992). Their marriage ended on June 16, 2001. Quaid was also engaged for three years to actress Lea Thompson (Back to the Future, Caroline in the City), whom he met on the movie set of Jaws 3-D in 1983.
Quaid married Kimberly Buffington, an Austin, Texas, real estate agent, Dennis Quaidon July 4, 2004 (Independence Day). The couple welcomed twins born via a gestational carrier on November 8, 2007 in Santa Monica, California. Their son Thomas Boone was born first at 8:26 a.m. and weighed 6 pounds, 12 ounces (3.06 kg). Daughter Zoe Grace made her appearance two minutes later weighing in at 5 pounds, 9 ounces (2.52 kg).
On November 18, 2007, hospital staff mistakenly gave Quaid’s 12-day-old twins a dosage of heparin 1,000 times the common dosage for infants. Their attorney said the newborns will “be fine now”, but Quaid has filed a lawsuit against the drug manufacturer, Baxter Healthcare, claiming that packaging for the two doses of heparin are not different enough. In May 2008, the Quaids testified before the United States House of Representatives’ Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, asking Congress not to preempt the right to sue drug manufacturers for negligence under state law.
Aside from acting, Quaid is a musician and plays with his band the Sharks. Quaid also has a pilot’s license and is a scratch golfer and, in 2005, was named as the top golfer among the “Hollywood set” by Golf Digest. He lends his name to the annual “Dennis Quaid Charity Weekend” (formerly the “Jiffy Lube/Dennis Quaid Charity Classic”) in Austin, Texas. The golf tournament attracts numerous celebrities with the proceeds split among local children’s Dennis Quaid nudecharities. He is a member of the Bel-Air Country Club in Bel-Air and tries to stay at homes on private courses when he is on the road.
Quaid works with the charity “International Hospital for Children in New Orleans.” He makes trips to Central America to help build medical clinics and transport sick children back to the United States for treatment they cannot get locally.
In a 2006 interview with Best Life magazine, Quaid said that in the mid-1990s he suffered from anorexia nervosa saying, “I’d look in the mirror and still see a 180 lb (82 kg) guy, even though I was 138 pounds (62 kg),” and “for many years, I was obsessed about what I was eating, how many calories it had, and how much exercise I’d have to do”.
