Celebrities are a lot more like us than most believe. Just as we all were gathering around the table with friends and family this Thanksgiving, they, too, were spending their day laboring away at creating an epic turkey feast.
Of course, some of them also did so while literally surrounded by paradise or following a float appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. So, OK, there are still some pretty stark differences between us peons and the rich and famous, but nonetheless, Thanksgiving means just as much to many of them as it does to us.
Here’s a glimpse at how Hollywood got down during this most recent holiday…
1. Miley Cyrus | @mileycyrus
Nothing screams “extra” like celebrating Turkey Day with shiny silver balloons that spell out your own name. Although to be fair, Miley—who celebrated with a Tofurkey—shared her birthday with Thanksgiving this year, so it’s a bit more understandable.
What’s more curious, however, is the Men in Black-esque egg chair in the above shot. In case you’ve forgotten:
2. Henry Cavill | @henrycavill
“Superman” may be British, but it turns out that Henry Cavill has an American dog whose traditions he deeply respects. Hence, Bear, pictured (and born in Arkansas, apparently), was given a Thanksgiving treat. Note: This was actually a chicken and not a turkey, but somehow, we don’t believe Superman’s pup was too discriminating.
3. Tracee Ellis Ross | @traceeellisross
It’s not every day that one’s style gets compared to a turkey, but that’s exactly what happened this Thanksgiving after Tracee Elliss Ross of TV’s Blackish wore this RVDK dress to the American Music Awards. She took it in stride on Thanksgiving Day, so mad props to her.
4. Rob Lowe | @robloweofficial
Rob Lowe keep his Insta caption simple this Thanksgiving—“The Lowe’s wish you a happy Thanksgiving”—but we admire the zeal with which he prepared to carve his turkey. And we must say, that looks like some damn fine cutlery, Rob.
5. Emily Ratajkowski | @emrata
Emily literally spent her Thanksgiving 2017 in paradise, repping her Inamorata swimwear brand. Something makes us think she may have skipped grabbing seconds on the mac & cheese at this year’s Thanksgiving, but hey, that’s just a guess.
6. Jimmy Fallon | @jimmyfallon
Following the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Jimmy and "The Roots” members Questlove and Black Thought gave a joyous shout out to America after their float appearance, with the latter providing a little callback to Montell Jordan circa 1995:
Oh, and for her part, Chelsea Handler just kept it really, really real on Twitter:
