Dennis Quaid Makes the Same Face in Every Movie

At a screening of Soul Surfer this week, I realized that Dennis Quaid (who plays Bethany Hamilton‘s father) has one of the most recognizable smiles in Hollywood. It’s no fake, polite smile. You know when you read a description in a book that someone’s grin split their face open? This is what Dennis Quaid is sporting in every single movie. And thanks to the Internet, it has a name: The Dennis Quaid Triangle Smile.

But I was stymied in actually searching for his smile. Then I came across two amazing Facebook groups: The Dennis Quaid Smile and I have witnessed the gloriousness that is Dennis Quaid’s triangle smile.

I now present you with screenshots of the Triangle Smile in its many genres, time periods, and roles.
