MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (AP) _ ″Godfather″ co-star James Caan has married a third time, to a woman who grew up a few blocks from his home in New York City.

But she wasn’t even born when Caan was attending PS 150, the high school where they both graduated 20 years apart.

Caan, 49, and Ingrid Hajek, 29, were married Sunday aboard the yacht Regentsea in Marina Del Rey, said Paul Bloch, a spokesman for the actor.

Bloch said Caan and Mrs. Hajek, who were raised in the same Sunnyside neighborhood in Queens, met two years ago when they were introduced by mutual friends. It is her second marriage.


Caan was nominated for an Academy Award in 1972 for best supporting actor for his role as Sonny Corleone in ″The Godfather.″ His next film, ″Misery,″ is scheduled for release in November.

Rob Reiner, director of ″Misery,″ and actor Elliot Gould were among the wedding guests.
