Jessica Biel once took her dad on one of her dates because she was worried the man she was spending the evening with would be "weird"
Jessica Biel once took her dad on one of her dates.
The 'Easy Virtue' actress auctioned a night in her company to raise medical funds for a Colorado teenager in 2006 and says she took her father along for support when she met with the winner.
She said: "It was a little bit awkward, kind of uncomfortable but luckily the guy was very cool. I brought my dad with me just in case anything got weird he was sitting in the next booth staring daggers at the poor guy but he was a really completely harmless gentleman."
The winning bidder, John Schiffner, paid $30,000 for the date, which took place at Denver's The Palm restaurant.
After learning how much the auction had raised, the actress quipped: "I promise I'm a cheap date."
The money raised was donated to Molly Bloom, who had been injured in a car accident.
