Dita Von Teese was anxious about introducing boyfriend Marilyn Manson to her parents - but they welcomed the shock rocker with open arms.

The saucy GIRLFRIENDS 2 actress complains her doting mother and father have never cared much for any of her past lovers, but they could not have been more delighted with the extreme MOBSCENE performer, real name BRIAN WARNER.

Dita, real name HEATHER SWEET, explains, "I was really nervous about it at first, especially with my father, as he never approves of any of the boys that I'm dating.

"Anyway, thank Christ he had no idea who he was! I didn't introduce him as the GOD OF F**K! He was really sweet. My folks really like him, even my dad."
