Hollywood loves to jump on social media on Thanksgiving morning to show their fans how they’re celebrating America’s excuse for one day of the year to overeat like crazy.
Some are busy in the kitchen putting the turkey in the oven or decorating that apple pie just right or showing off their fall decor.
Others take energetic walks to prepare for the big, high-calorie feast or attend a football game with their friends or the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with Lea Michele.
Here’s a look at what Tinseltown’s A-list – including Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas – are up to this Thursday in the last big holiday before Christmas.
