“My wife wants to do the fake tree because it’s easy but I am so anti fake tree,” Peter told PEOPLE at the Everybody’s Fine New York premiere. “In one room we do a nice fake tree, and in the other room I get to have my tree with all the pine needles falling all over the place.”
The 36-year-old Twilight star says that he loves the adventure of picking out a real Christmas tree with his three daughters, Luca, 12, Lola, 7, and Fiona, 3.
What’s fun is that I get to go and pick out the tee with the kids, and then it becomes an experience. Sometimes I’ll hide behind the tree. I used to pretend I was the talking three. The kids loved it. I would be like, ‘Hey, pick me – I am the best Christmas tree!’
He goes on to say that Christmas would be impossible without the help of his wife: “I have no time to go Christmas shopping this year. She called me today and said, ‘So, I go the Christmas shopping done for so and so and so.’ I’m like, ‘You’re a godsend.’”
So what’s on Peter’s wish list this year?
“I’m so blessed I couldn’t possibly imagine asking for anything else.”
