Dennis Quaid and his family are leaving Hollywood.
The 'Vantage Point' star and his wife Kimberly have decided to move to Kimberly's hometown in Austin, Texas, because they want to bring up their seven-month-old twins - Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace - away from the public spotlight.
He said: "The train is going down the tracks. We have a lot of family there and we have a really nice plot of land. We have 30 or 40 friends and family members within two miles of us. It's kind of a no-brainer."
The twins were given an accidental drug overdose by staff at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center shortly after they were born, but Dennis says they have recovered well.
He said: "They went through a medical catastrophe. Thank God it had a happy ending. We took them to the kiddie pool for their first swim today. They loved it."
The twins were accidentally given 10,000 units of the anti-coagulant drug Heparin instead of the 10 units babies are allowed.
