Twilight star Ashley Greene has an odd Santa phobia that dates back to a childhood incident when her mother found her asking a stranger with a beard for Christmas gifts.
The actress was playing in a bank on a trip out with her mom and when she disappeared from view, panic set in. She recalls, "She sees me and I'm on this poor man's lap, who happens to be a little chubby with a beard… I'm like, ';I want a pony, I want a unicorn'.
"I'm, like, three and so my mom of course then has to tell me about strangers and how dangerous they are. She's like, ';If you ever sit on Santa's lap, you'll never see your mom again.'
"After that I was like, 'Hmmm, Santa, not so great!"
