New York — Sometimes, Santa leaves scars, by way of kid-coveted gifts that never landed under the tree.

And sometimes, the big guy in the red suit just gets it wrong.

Here are 6 celebs that reveal the childhood gifts that got away:

1. Will Smith

Something the Collateral Beauty actor really wanted and never got as a child was an Easy-Bake Oven.

“My sister got the Easy-Bake Oven instead of me.

“I don't know why they don't give boys Easy-Bake Ovens, you know? Boys should be able to cook stuff, so that was actually a tragedy from my youth, that my sister got the Easy-Bake Oven and I didn't," Smith joked.

2. Jennifer Aniston

Believe it or not, but Jen wanted Barbie’s head.

When asked what she wanted, Jen said, “The Barbie head,” to which Christmas Office Party co-star Jason Bateman wondered on a red carpet: “Just the head?”

Aniston replied: "Yeah, the bust. Remember? The hair could grow. You could pull out the hair and then you could cut it. Paint makeup on it.”

3.Lily Collins

Lily Collins was also part of the Barbie struggle. She said, “I wanted a Barbie Jeep. I never got my Barbie Jeep.”

4. Naomie Harris

The Moonlight was one of those kids that always wanted a puppy for Christmas. 

“I really wanted a dog and I never got a dog and my mom got me a rabbit instead, but a rabbit is not a dog and that was really disappointing,” she said.

5. Keegan-Michael Key

For this comedian it was more like the big fish that got away.

“Oh, God. I wanted a Great Dane so bad but we lived in a small house,” he recalled. “They would have had to feed that thing more than me and my brother.”

6. T.J. Miller 

T.J. Miller had it easy and actuallt got what he wanted.

He said, “Mine is the Technodrome, which is where the villain Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was with Bebop and Rocksteady, which was this very large — it opened up and ooze would come down and there were little torture places for the turtles.

“For some reason I wanted that more than anything," Miller added. "And then when Santa brought it I just lost my mind.”
