THE O.C. star Adam Brody has vowed never to ask a girl out on a date around his father again, after never forgetting the time his dad embarrassed him at an audition. Brody insists he won't be making the mistake of broadening his romantic horizons near his father in future. He says, "Five years ago, my dad was in town and I had an audition. "I was reading with this cute girl. We were leaving and I said, 'I want to ask her number, so could you get the car and I'll meet you?' "She came out and started talking, and my dad pulls up, honks the horn and gives me the thumbs-up. "I don't think she called me back."
