The Vanilla Sky actress applauded her dad's high-spirited performance in the 1998 flick. "My daddy's in this movie for two seconds. My father just passed away recently. He's the dude when Ben Stiller is leaving the jail and all the guys run afterwards. My dad has the long black-silver hair... who''s hamming it up in the front," Contactmusic quoted Diaz, as telling the audience at the Arclight Cinema.
Diaz then stated the flick has captured the memory of her father. "That's my dad, so would you all just say hi to him, because it's one of the few moments that we have of him immortalised on film," she added.
