How Your Favorite Celebrities Celebrate Thanksgiving


It’s nearly Thanksgiving! The day where you get a free hall pass to stuff yourself with turkey, drink mulled wine, and fill up with pecan pie. We hope you are getting ready for the feasting. Celebrities are just like us when it comes to traditions and being with loved ones, and they also eat dessert galore. Find out how your favorite celebrities celebrate the holidays.

Mariah Carey

This queen diva loves a Thanksgiving pie just like us, and looks like she’s about to make it taste even better with the  whipped cream in her hand. In true Mariah style, head to toe in bling, she makes every occasion a sparkly one.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah is the epitome of warm and inviting, and for Thanksgiving the talk show hostess with the mostess invites the whole family and a bunch of her friends to celebrate in style and remind herself how lucky she is and how grateful she is. We would love to eat a feast at her house.

Goldie Hawn And Kate Hudson

The famous mother daughter duo are never seen too far away from each other’s sides. Especially during Thanksgiving when family is so important, the two take to the mountains for some self care and fresh air.

Speaking of making the Thanksgiving meal, Kate said  ‘I’m doing all the stuff. Mom’s delegating,’ Kate explained, adding that she’s actually quite a baker, but has hired someone to make the crusts for her pies this year since she will be out of town in the days leading up to the special dinner.  ‘I do all the desserts. I love making pastries. I make seven to nine pies every year.’

Meghan Markle

The Suits star took to her Instagram last year to post her feast. We wonder if now she is dating Prince Harry, she will invite the royal prince to her house to celebrate, or if she will be with him in England. Sadly we don’t think the Queen makes a pecan pie.

Martha Stewart 

Get your pen and paper ready, we need tips from the Turkey queen. Martha Stewart really knows how to throw a Thanksgiving feast and has many recipes on offer, we think we will use one of hers, after all she is Martha Stewart! Just look at that bird.

Can you believe, that Martha actually got very sick from so many Turkey tastings- “I never get sick, but I came down with salmonella,” Stewart said. “I think I caught it because I was handling so many turkeys. I was on the ‘Today’ show, I did a number of  [Thanksgiving] appearances. It really hit me hard and I was in bed for days. It was terrible.” We hope this doesn’t put her off forever.

Alessandra Ambrosio

Alessandra Ambrosio can even make anything look good, even Turkey feathers! The top model rocked a festive headband while she posed with her adorable son Noah whom she described as “My little ray of ? #happythanksgiving,” as she captioned her Instagram photo. The top model says she detoxes the day after with a green juice and gym session.

Gwyneth Paltrow

The wellness goddess makes her own Thanksgiving meal, and even eats gluten and sugar on this day she says. The famous founder of health and wellness website Goop is the guru when it comes to clean eating, so makes a healthy meal but definitely indulges in some sweet potato pie. Well if its alright for Gwen guess that’s our green light then.

Reece Witherspoon

The Legally Blonde actress is full of southern charm, and loves to go back to her roots when it comes to Thanksgiving cooking. She even has the perfect outfit, a flowery apron and matching oven gloves, it doesn’t get more homely than that.  She loves to spend it with her three children and husband.

Giselle and Tom Brady

Gisele shared a picture of husband and famous sports star hunk Tom Brady and their son making biscuits on Thanksgiving. “Happy Thanksgiving! Each Thanksgiving, I am reminded even more of all the blessings I receive every day. It’s a special day were I get to be with my family, friends and spend some time reflecting on all the experiences in my life. I am most grateful to have health and to be surrounded by love. Wishing you and your families a beautiful day and so much love,” the supermodel captioned the sweet Instagram snap.

P Diddy

Sean Combs, Puff, P. Diddy, Brother Love, whatever you want to call him, you can definitely call him a family man. He loves to cook and gets his hands dirty when it comes to basting the Turkey. He always keeps an element of cool and just couldn’t cook without his gangster shades. That looks like a mean bird.

Eva Longoria

This actress is no desperate housewife when it comes to basting a bird. She loves to cook and says that this time of year especially, she loves to try out new recipes. She will be celebrating with her family, her new husband and his children. Eva explained, “This is going to be our first Thanksgiving married and my stepkids and my Mexican husband don’t celebrate Thanksgiving so this is the first time they’re coming to the United States for Thanksgiving” that will be exciting.

Salma Hayak

The Turkey day feast commences as this actresses household. Her favorite part is making all the desserts and she loves to pick while she’s making them. She looks like she knows what she is doing slicing up the bird, we reckon her husband leaves it up to her. Happy slicing.

Katie Holmes

A woman after our own heart, she knows how it’s done during Thanksgiving. Katie loves to celebrate with her nearest and dearest, including her adorable mini me daughter Suri. Her favorite part is letting her hair down and enjoying a nice cold glass of white wine to celebrate all that she is grateful for.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara and her husband Joe Manganiello have some big plans for Thanksgiving! The couple originally wanted to have an intimate gathering, but Joe recently announced that it’s actually become a much bigger occasion. “It was supposed to be small, but now it’s gonna be gigantic,” He also stated that since he and Sofia aren’t big cooks, it looks like Sofia‘s 26-year-old son Manolo will be taking over in the kitchen! They do make us laugh with those hats.

Mindy Kaling

We love Mindy, she’s a real woman! We love that she took a shameless selfie with her ice cream tub, after all it is the season of indulging and of giving thanks, so we give thanks to her for showing us how it is done.

Miranda Kerr

The supermodel is not just a pretty face, and loves to bake. This pecan pie looks absolutely dreamy and is making us want to go home and eat a slice ourselves. Baked to perfection, it looks crispy in all the right places. This year the Aussie beauty will be celebrating with her Snapchat mogul husband and adorable so Flynn whom she shares with ex Orlando Bloom. That is one lucky kid.

Hugh Jackman

Wolverine needs a lot of protein, and it looks like Hugh takes this role seriously off screen too. His feast awaits him. Speaking of Thanksgiving he said that when he goes back to his home country of Australia, he still loves to celebrate and invite family and friends to enjoy being together and indulging. Don’t we all. 

Jennifer Lopez

Jenny from the block knows how to put on a party. The table decorations are beautiful, and just look at the food! This queen knows how to make a variety of different pies. She loves to celebrate with the family, and now her new beau J Rod will be joining her this year with his kids, we cannot wait to see their social media pictures. She captioned the picture ‘giving thanks’.

Britney Spears

Britney loves to go back down south to her roots when it comes to celebrating Thanksgiving. She celebrates with her two sons, and her sister Jamie Lynne and her sweet daughter. Then the family loves to go to Disney Land, here she is pictured having a lot of fun with her niece in matching minion hats.


Giselle’s adorable children just cannot wait to tuck into that healthy feast. Known for having a very strict diet, Tom and Giselle keep it healthy even over the holidays. That feast is full of veggie goodness and the kids look super excited.


The mogul and mentor doesn’t leave it to the chefs to baste the turkey. She knows how she likes it, and likes to get involved in the cooking process for all her friends and family. Oprah looks like you’ve done a great job.  We love the use of herbs.

Meghan Markle

This pretty actress likes to bbq her bird. An interesting approach Megs, we wonder if that’s allowed in Buckingham Palace. It does look perfectly cooked we do admit.


When it comes to table decorations and those tiny touches, Jennifer Lopez has it down to a fine art. Even her plates remind the guests to be thankful always for the food they are about to eat and the company they are in. The centre pieces are also festively fall and get us feeling excited for the holidays.

Barack Obama

It’s the real deal for Barack, a real life turkey, just for him, but the bird does not seem to happy with the festivities so tried to take off. This is such a comical picture. He seems totally enjoying the experience though.

Barack Obama

The ex President of the land of the free and the home of the brave, always gives back this time of year. Last year he volunteered at a homeless shelter so that his fellow Americans could also enjoy a nice home cooked cozy dinner.

Matthew McConaughey

This stud of an actor and his beautiful wife Camilla Alves like to give back to the community during the holidays, so they go delivering meals on wheels with their three stunning children. What an adorable family.

This RnB singer talks about his famous fried Turkey every Thanksgiving. Each year he deep fries the bird, John we must say it looks delicious, we may have to try deep fried Turkey. His wife Chrissy Teigen is not only known for her long luscious legs, but is also an amazing cook.

Chrissy Teigen

This super hot model mama and wife of John Legend loves to cook and is known for being a famous foodie. She even has a cook book out with all of her favorite foods, most of which are southern fare. These pies look mouthwateringly good, we wish we could eat pie all the time and look like that.

Liam Payne

This ex One Directioner looks quite the part with his minnie mouse apron and oven gloves on, we wonder what feast he is cooking up this year for his beautiful girlfriend Cheryl Cole and their adorable baby son Bear. Recently Liam has been focusing on his solo career and we are absolutely loving his hits, we will be bopping to them while cutting up the yams.

Jessica Alba

This beautiful actress is known for being very environmentally friendly and has created her own brand of chemical free products, we wonder if she is gonna use them to clean up that mess! She is quite the home maker and such an amazing mom to her two beautiful girls. With another on the way shortly we wonder if she will do the cooking this year or leave it up to the hubby.

Naomi Watts

When it comes to the Turkey, Naomi leaves it to the professionals, but she makes a very pretty su chef. We love the hat Naomi.

We just love this throw back picture that Miley posted of her famous family. Her dad hasn’t aged one bit, but just look at that mullet! This picture is adorable and we can’t wait for them all to get together to see their antics this year. Miley famously went vegan, so we wonder what her feast will look like.

This top model has not aged one bit and still looks incredible. For Thanksgiving she says she does a detox before and after, but enjoys the festivities and cooks her own Turkey, and this one is a beauty.
