  Boeing CEO faces another grilling on Capitol Hill over Max Boeing's CEO faces a second day of grilling on Capitol Hill over the 737 Max, the plane involved in two crashes that killed 346 people. House Transportation Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., said Wednesday Boeing showed a "lack of candor all through this" as it developed the plane and didn't tell pilots about a new flight-control system until after a Max crashed a year ago in Indonesia.

Back in October, it was revealed that the 65-year-old Parent Trap star is set to tie the knot with 26-year-old PhD student Laura Savoie. The engagement announcement raised eyebrows with many social media users, specifically over the couple's major age-gap. However, the media coverage didn't bother Quaid, in fact, he found it all pretty amusing.

"That was really a laugh," Quaid tells The Guardian in a new interview, published Monday. "I thought it was wonderful, actually."

Child's plea for help leads to the arrest of Flagler County parents

  Child's plea for help leads to the arrest of Flagler County parents Authorities said a child's call for help led to the arrest of two people who were living in a deplorable state with five children. Flagler County Sheriff's Office said they arrested Betty Allen, 42, and Dennis Allen, 44, after it was discovered every room in their home was covered in animal waste, rotting food and roaches.

As for the age difference between him and his now-fiancée, Quaid explains it "really doesn't bother us."

"Everyone comes from the perspective of their own life and so I can't comment on the way they feel; I can't even get angry," the actor says. "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," Quaid continues. "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."

Quaid was previously married to P. J. Soles, Meg Ryan, and Kimberly Quaid, with who he shares 12-year-old twins. Quaid also has a 27-year-old son, Jack Quaid, with ex Ryan.

Christopher Dennis Dies: ‘Hollywood Superman’ And Frequent ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ Guest Was 52

  Christopher Dennis Dies: ‘Hollywood Superman’ And Frequent ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ Guest Was 52 Hollywood Boulevard is in mourning for a lost superhero following the death of the man known as Hollywood Superman, who frequented the Walk of Fame tourist attraction. Christopher Dennis, age 52, was a fixture along the Walk of Fame for more than 25 years, posing for photos with the many tourists who milled about the crowded sidewalk strip between the Hollywood & Highland mall and the TCL Chinese Theater.

As many Parent Trap fans will know, Quaid's character gets engaged to a 26-year-old woman named Meredith Blake in the film, played by Elaine Hendrix. After hearing about her former co-star's engagement to Savoie, 26, Hendrix hilariously tweeted, "Watch out for those twins."

The tweet was a reference to Quaid's twin daughters in the movie, portrayed by Lindsay Lohan, who were not the biggest fans of her character.

Referencing Hendrix's tweet, Quaid tells The Guardian he thought it was funny.

"In fact, that very day, we went to the Staglin Family Vineyard, where we filmed The Parent Trap," Quaid reveals. "I hadn't been there since 1996. So we went and they offered us the opportunity to get married there."

But will they really? According to Quaid, "Well, wouldn't you? For sure!"

And when it comes to a wedding date, Quaid shares, "I think you have to get married within a year of asking."
