Turkey Day is upon us — and Hollywood is oh-so-ready to gobble it down.
While Thanksgiving is, above all, a time to give thanks, the centuries-old tradition is often celebrated with family, football and, of course, food. And before Tinseltown got to stuffing the turkeys, mashing the potatoes and breaking out the cranberry sauce, Celebuzz caught up with the stars to find out which dish is their favorite on the Turkey Day dinner table.
“I love stuffing,” said reality star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who is ringing in her first Thanksgiving with nearly 4-month-old son, Lorenzo Dominic. “It’s my guilty pleasure.”
And that drool-worthy delight seems to be a Jersey Shore favorite. “I love stuffing. I love stuffing,” gushed Jenni “JWOWW” Farley. “I thought you were going to say pumpkin pie,” chimed in her fiancé Roger Mathews, who favors turkey on his holiday plate. “No,” Farley retorts, “stuffing.”
Others opted for the one of the classic sugary side dishes. “I probably like sweet potatoes the best, when they’re down really well — marshmallows and stuff on top,” said Seth Green.
But Real Housewife of New Jersey Melissa Gorga skips the fluffy treat on top. “Oh my god,” she exclaimed of her sister’s sweet potato recipe. “We put them in the oven and smush them with cinnamon and brown sugar on top, with some caramelized nuts.” The result? Simply “breathtaking,” Gorga said.
Even Victoria’s Secret models will be scarfing down the carb-heavy fare this Thurday. “My favorite Thanksgiving dish is the sweet potatoes with marshmallows,” said Lily Aldridge. “It’s delicious.”
Still, some simply can’t choose a single stand-out from the festive feast. “Oh, I suppose turkey and mash potatoes,” said Sam Rockwellof his go-to Thanksgiving grub, adding “then yam mash potatoes and then pumpkin pie.” I do love turkey. And I do love pumpkin pie.”
And comedian Charlie Murphy — brother to the one-and-only Eddie Murphy — puts his own twist on the classic Turkey Day meal. “I can take the stuffing, and the cranberry sauce, and the turkey, and the macaroni and cheese and put it on the sandwich,” he said. “I love that combo. I will eat it on Thanksgiving. For sure.”
But for Murphy, like for so many turkey-, stuffing- and cranberry-loving Americans, the holiday grub isn’t just a November indulgence. Said the funnyman: “Guess what? I don’t want till Thanksgiving to eat it — I eat it year round.”
