Dennis Quaid, 65, reveals he took Ph.D. student Laura Savoie, 26, to Parent Trap house... as he laughs off co-star Elaine Hendrix's jibe about his engagement

Dennis Quaid has responded to a joke from Elaine Hendrix, his costar in The Parent Trap, in regards to his recent engagement to Ph.D. student Laura Savoie.

The veteran actor, 65, had a good-natured response to some ribbing from Hendrix, 48, over his new romance with Savoie, 26.

In the 1998 Disney film, Hendrix played Meredith Blake, a conniving younger woman who hoped to marry Quaid's Nick Parker and have his twin daughters (played by Lindsay Lohan) sent to a Swiss boarding school - but the twins wouldn't go without a fight.

Hendrix tweeted a link to a story about Quaid's engagement, writing, 'Watch out for those twins.'

Quaid told People Monday he was in the Napa, California area where they shot the movie when he saw Hendrix's tweet, and decided to make a memento for the actress.

Quaid said he and Savoie were already in Napa for one of his musical performances, and had decided to visit the Staglin Family Vineyard.

'You know what, that actually came out and we just happened, Laura and I, to be in Napa, cause I got music gigs up there,' Quaid said. 'We went to the Staglin Ranch where we shot Parent Trap - the house - and we have a picture of us in front of the house that we want to send to Elaine.'

In the chat, the Hollywood stalwart, who's been seen in classics such as Traffic, Everybody's All-American and Any Given Sunday, used an assortment of words to convey his fondness for his fiance, who he proposed to last month in Oahu, Hawaii.

'She is just the most fabulous, wonderful, deepest, sweetest, funniest, very intelligent, gorgeous loving caring - I have a lot of adjectives,' he said of the St. Louis native, who is working at the University of Texas at Austin to get an accounting in Ph.D. 'She's an incredible person.'
