MONA LISA SMILE star Julia Stiles once dined at a German restaurant with a bizarre twist - she had to eat all of her food in the dark.

The Hollywood actress, 23, says her bizarre outing was part of a date, and she remains impressed by it to this day.

She says, "I went to a restaurant in Germany that was a blind restaurant. You have the entire meal in the dark and you're led around by people.

"They tell you afterward (what you ate). It wasn't anything gross."
