Lost hunk Josh Holloway used to steal his father's underwear whenever he was on a hot date - because his dad had the most amazing "banana hammocks".
The actor admits his father's pants gave him an air of confidence when he started dating as a teenager.
Holloway recalls, "When I thought I might have an interesting date, I would sneak into my father's room and poach his underwear because he was like Mr Speedo pattern - he had, like, paisleys and some leopard skins (designs) and they were all, like, banana hammocks - really nice.
"For some reason I thought that might be sexy."
But he accepts his penchant for his father's underwear must have confused his mother: "She would suddenly see this underwear that dad hadn't been sporting show up in (my) laundry."
