December 27, 2010 (3:57 am) GMT
The 'Twilight' beauty did not adore the iconic Christmas figure anymore after her mother threatened, 'If you ever sit on Santa's lap, you'll never see your mum again.'

"" star 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 mum 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 mum again.' "

"After that I was like, 'Hmmm, Santa, not so great!' "
