THE COOLER star Maria Bello recently had a bonding experience with her 62-year-old dad - they had their very first tattoos together.

The actress opted for something "tiny and secret" on her bottom, while her father chose to pay honour to his favourite American football team, the SUPER BOWL-bound PHILADELPHIA EAGLES.

She says, "We went to the corner bar, had a couple of beers, some shots of JACK DANIELS, went across the street to the tattoo parlour.

"My dad said, 'I'm going to get something that I'd love to die with'... the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES and a big emblem of the eagle on his arm."
