Billy Bob Thornton has a real challenge on his plate at Christmas - he's allergic to traditional Yuletide food.

The movie star can't stomach wheat or dairy, so he has to give up many of the Christmas goodies the rest of us enjoy. He even struggles with the milk and cookies his kids leave out for SANTA.

He says, "I'll eat the cookies at a push but I'm allergic to dairy, so we have to make reasons why Santa can't have milk."
