" The actor said it happened during a long day of work when he tried filming a scene with two kids who kept fighting with each other. “I said, ‘Everybody gotta be quiet. Filed Under.’ And these two kids were fighting in the back,” he recalled. “It was late in the afternoon and I’d been in this stuff (costume) way too long, I’m very angry, sweaty, and the camera just had to come around and get my eyes.” “And then the movie opens.

It’s Santa. These kids, again: ‘He hit me.’ ‘He pinched me,’” Allen continued. “Fifteen takes later, the kid said one more word, and I let out the loudest F-bomb.” “And I turned around and there are 12 children (who) looked like you had ripped their legs off.

Their Santa has just screamed the F-bomb,” he added. Joyann Jeffrey .
