Hollywood likes to take to social media on Thanksgiving morning to show their fans how they celebrate America’s excuse for overeating like crazy one day of the year.
Some are busy in the kitchen putting the turkey in the oven or decorating that apple pie or showing off their fall decor.
Others are on power walks preparing for the big, high-calorie feast or going to a football game with their friends or the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with Lea Michele performing.
Here’s a look at what Tinseltown’s A-list — including Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas — is up to this Thursday during the last big holiday before Christmas.
