What are the stars doing for Thanksgiving? They reveal their holiday plans exclusively with Us Weekly -- read on!

EMMA ROBERTS, 20 (The Art of Getting By)
On Thanksgiving we always just have a big feast. Stuffing is my favorite food in the world! I actually have been known to go buy stuffing and make it in the middle of summer.

JOSH DUHAMEL, 39 (New Year's Eve)
There's things I love to eat that my mom makes. She makes an incredible Thanksgiving dinner -- she's an incredible cook. She even makes food and freezes it for us when she comes out to visit. Fergie and I eat it for the next six months!

JENNIFER LOPEZ, 42 (American Idol)
I'm just going be with my babies [Max and Emme, 3]. We'll cook a turkey, which will be good, and then we'll eat it!

ADRIAN GRENIER, 35 (Entourage)
I make fish and chicken instead of turkey for Thanksgiving. Organic free-range fish and chicken.

KYLE RICHARDS, 42 (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)
My sister Kim and I have competitions with our turkeys on Thanksgiving, and my sister Kathy loves my famous mashed potatoes. I really have fun  cooking during the holidays. My kids love to help me. It's just family tradition to have everyone cooking together, and we have holiday parties as well.

DAVE ANNABLE, 32 (What's Your Number?)
I'll be just hanging with the family. My sister just moved to Austin, Texas, so we're very excited. Odette and I have never been -- I heard that's a very fun place. We're sort of in the middle of starting our own traditions. I'm going for nude Jell-O wrestling, but that's just me!

JANE LYNCH, 51 (Glee)
A lot of eating! We eat with friends. We like the basics, the good stuff -- the turkey and all that. But our friends bring new and weird things to dinner. Last year someone brought a pork butt! And it was delicious! Shaking it up on Thanksgiving!

MARK CONSUELOS, 40 (Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays)
I'm looking forward to turning off the phones, shutting off Twitter and relaxing.

KENDRA WILKINSON, 26 (E! reality star)
Being together and staying at our house as a family for once -- just me, Hank and baby Hank -- that's all we need this year. I tried to cook last year and it was a huge mess. I tried to make homemade stuffing and it was the worst, nastiest mistake I ever made.

JOHN LITHGOW, 66 (Rise of the Planet of the Apes)
For Thanksgiving we'll be here in New York, cooking our heads off. It'll be a two-day cooking job.

KELLY BENSIMON, 43 (The Real Housewives of New York City)
For Thanksgiving I'm going to hunt with my twin brother and my sister-in-law, so that's really exciting. We literally go on a hunt in South Carolina, get all dressed up and ride horses all over the countryside. It's unbelievable.

RYAN KWANTEN, 34 (True Blood)
I'll be working, actually. My birthday is at the end of the month, which is around Thanksgiving, but because of this film [7500] and True Blood sort of overlapping, I'll be working.

MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG, 26 (Gossip Girl)
Thanksgiving is my mom's most important holiday. No matter what I'm working on, it always has to be put into the contract that I'm able to home for Thanksgiving. My mom cooks a massive, massive feast.

KASEY KAHL, 27 (Bachelor Pad 2)
I've got like five dinners and movies with friends. It's going to be awesome.

STACY KEIBLER, 32 (former WWE wrestler)
I'm just looking forward to spending time with my friends and family. I'll be eating a lot of food on Thanksgiving -- I put gravy on everything on my plate! And I'll be watching my Baltimore Ravens hopefully kick some butt on Thursday.

DAVID ARQUETTE, 40 (Dancing With the Stars)
I love seeing my family. We all live in the same city, but life happens, so we don't tend to see the whole group that often. I'm a big turkey eater. And I love sweet potatoes!

WHOOPI GOLDBERG, 56 (The View)
I make a Thanksgiving  turkey. It's the only thing I know how to cook! I'm going to collect folks who don't have a place to go on Thanksgiving. I generally spend the holiday with friends because to get the kids out of school for three days is hard.

ELIZA DUSHKU, 30 (Dollhouse)
Rick
[Fox] and I are heading to Boston. The tradition is family, family, family. Rick's kids, and his sister Janine is coming in from Italy. It'll be a family affair for sure.
