Dennis Quaid Originally Thought There Were Two Actresses Playing Lindsay Lohan's Annie & Hallie in 'Parent Trap'

Lindsay Lohan reunited with most of her Parent Trap over the weekend for a virtual reunion that raised money for the World Central Kitchen.

During their virtual chat, Lindsay chatted with Dennis Quaid, Elaine Hendrix, Lisa Ann Walter, and Simon Kunz, along with director Nancy Meyers and writer-producer Charles Shyer with host Katie Couric about the movie.

After paying tributes to the late Natasha Richardson, Nancy and Charles opened up about casting Lindsay for the roles as Hallie and Annie.

“Within two or three minutes, we both knew she had the part,” Charles shared. “She was just amazing.”

Nancy added, “Putting aside how adorable she looked, she had that quality that just sort of leapt up at you and pulled you in. I think to be a movie star and to be the lead of a movie, you need to have that connection with the camera, that screen presence. We discovered a big star. We discovered somebody that everybody fell in love with.”

Dennis also admitted at one point that he thought there might have been two girls for the twins, only to find out it was just Lindsay.

“I had such a blast doing this movie. The first thing I remember was meeting Lindsay at some kind of screen test… I remember thinking, ‘Oh my gosh. This is one of the most talented people I’ve ever met. Period. Forget that she’s 11 years old,’” he said.

He added, “I actually thought that there were two girls. I really did because your accent was so perfect… You were a natural. You just fell right into it.”

Dennis Quaid Calls 'Dog's Purpose' Video A 'Scam' For Inciting Abuse

Dennis Quaid is opening up more about the controversial video which showed that one of the dogs on the set of A Dog’s Purpose was being abused.

During his new podcast, the 66-year-old actor called the video a scam and very misleading.

“What happened was the dog jumps into the water … there were divers, scuba divers, three of them, underneath the water,” Dennis shared. “One of the trainers reached down to give the dog a rest, and he pulled him up, and it looks like he’s pulling him up and choking him by the collar.”

He continued, “What it doesn’t show is that there’s a table right below the dog, so the dog can rest his feet on the table. He’s not just being held up.”

The video in question raised concerns for the canine actors after it was released just prior to the film hitting theaters in 2017.

He “goes under, and that’s where the guy cuts,” Dennis added of the moment the video was doctored. “Well there were two divers waiting for him right there, it wasn’t even a second and a half.”

“They lifted him up, handed him to the trainer right by the pool and the dog didn’t even wait to get a collar on, he ran right to the other side of the pool to do it again. He loved it.”

An independent investigation later agreed that no animals were harmed on the set.

“It was love at first sight,” he said of their meeting in May 2019 after being introduced at a business event. They later got engaged in October that year.

“I just love who she is as a person. Her character, her intelligence, of course, her beauty. And her point of view of the world.”

He also talked about their shared values: “We’re both Christians, and right from the start God has always had a hand in the relationship. I think that’s where the real strength comes from,” he said.

Dennis also discussed the couple’s 39 year age difference.

“It really just doesn’t come up. There’s just something timeless about us. We’re partners in our relationship and in life. It’s love. And love just has a way of surprising you.”
