She played the much younger fiancee to his dad of two in the 1998 movie The Parent Trap.
And on Monday, Elaine Hendrix couldn’t resist commenting publicly on the news that Dennis Quaid, 65, is now engaged to 26-year-old Ph.D. student Laura Savoie.
The actress, 48, retweeted a news report about Quaid’s engagement and warned: ‘Watch out for those twins.’

In The Parent Trap, Hendrix’s character Meredith Blake was a scheming gold-digger who planned to marry the wealthy winemaker Nick Parker, played by Quaid.
Her plan was to tie the knot and then ship his twin daughters off to boarding school in Switzerland so that she could enjoy living the high life in Napa, California.
The twins, played by Lindsay Lohan, were equally scheming and ended up being able to see off Meredith and reunite their father with their mother, played by Natasha Richardson.

Quaid is the father of 11-year-old twins with his third ex-wife Kimberly.
He also has a son Jack, 27, with his second ex-wife Meg Ryan.
He popped the question to Savoie last week after going public with their romance just five months ago.
The couple have been vacationing in Hawaii where they attended a special screening Sunday at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Honolulu of Roland Emmerich’s new film Midway, in which the actor plays Vice Admiral William ‘Bull’ Halsey.
Savoie, a post-graduate student at Texas University, flashed a gorgeous diamond on her ring finger as the two posed for photos together on the red carpet.

The Houston-born movie star revealed he got down on one knee at sunset to propose to his girlfriend.
‘It happened on the very northernmost point of Oahu, at Turtle Bay. It was kind of spontaneous. It was very much a surprise,’ he told Extra.
‘I had the ring in my pocket… It has been kind of a month-and-a-half plan… I wanted it to be private,’ he explained.
‘She was actually taking a selfie of us, and I put the ring in front and said, “Will you marry me?” — and then she fell down.’
Quaid has been married and divorced three times – to Kimberly Buffington from 2004 to 2018, to Meg Ryan from 1991 to 2001 and to P.J. Soles from 1978 to 1983.
He shares a son Jack, 27, with Ryan and 11-year-old twins, Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, with Buggington.
Savoie was previously in a relationship with 54-year-old Entourage and Mr. Selfridge star Jeremy Piven.
