In an interview with , the actress revealed that an elementary school classmate spoiled the news by explaining how ridiculous a flying sleigh sounded. Though, not wanting his little sister to become jaded to Christmas magic, Kunis's older brother came up with the perfect solution to buy her one more year.
"My brother, who’s six years older than I am, was like, 'Listen, I’ll tell you the truth—Santa doesn’t ride a sleigh. Clearly, that doesn’t exist because we all know people don’t fly. He flies a plane! That’s how he gets around in one night.' And that bought me another year!" Kunis said. "So it bought me a whole year of thinking Santa existed when my brother told me that Santa doesn’t ride a sleigh but instead, spoiler alert, rides in a plane! And I was like, 'That makes sense!'
Gina Rodriguezspoiled the fun herself when she snuck around on Christmas Eve to find her dad putting "Santa's" presents underneath the tree. Though, from the sound of her story, her parents were relieved that they didn't have to keep the jig up.
From an early age,Justin Bieber's mom was "straight up and honest" with him about Santa. In an interview with AOL Music, the singer revealed that his mom explained to him that Santa wasn't real when he was very young, so he didn't feel lied to and betrayed when he was older.
"My mom always told me there wasn't a Santa," Bieber said. "This was her logic: She thought if I grew up knowing about Santa then finding out he wasn't real, that it would be like she was lying to me. And then when she told me about God, I maybe wouldn't believe her."
As an intuitive child,Nick Jonasalways had an inkling in his mind that Santa wasn't real. In an interview with Music Choice, the singer revealed his skepticism when people told him that he would receive a lump of coal from Santa if he was bad.
"I was never given a lump of coal, thankfully," Jonas said. "Also, I never really believed in Santa Clause, to be honest. I wasn't as easy trick into thinking it was real, and that I would get the lump of coal if I was bad."
A lot of us can relate withBrad Pitt's feeling of "betrayal" when he learned that Santa wasn't real. In an interview with E! News, the actor recalled his frustration when he found out that Saint Nick was fictional.
"I'm not a real big on the whole Santa thing," Pitt said. "I thought it was a huge act of betrayal when I was a kid. I didn't like that. When I found out the truth, I was like, 'Why, why, why would you lie to me, why?'"
Mariah Careyis proof that there are some Santa believers out there. In an interview with , the "All I Want for Christmas" singer outed herself as a Santa truist when she refused to fess up when she learned the holiday icon was fake.
"What are you talking about? Santa comes every year!” she said.
Little Mix memberJade Thirwallmight have never known that Santa wasn't real if it wasn't for her dad's slip-up when she was a kid.
