For many, Thanksgiving 2021 looked very different than last year. With 59% of Americans vaccinated against COVID-19, many families were able to gather around the turkey for the first time since March 2020 sent the world into over a year of isolation. This, of course, includes Hollywood A-listers.
From 2021 it-couple Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey to the newly reunited Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, many celebrities spent their holiday with loved ones and sharing laughs, recipes, and hugs. Seriously, who else missed hugs?? In fact, all that time apart may be why this year seemed to be an extra romantic one for couples like Kieth Urban and Nicole Kidman or Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas.
Here’s how your favorite celebrities celebrated Thanksgiving 2021:
Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey
Jordan and Harvey, who went public with their relationship in 2021, spent the holiday with her family, including father Steve Harvey. “We start eating early in the Harvey household,” she captioned her Instagram Story, per People. On another video of Jordan, she wrote, “fat ass over here got 3 plates @michaelbjordan 😂.”
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Per TMZ, Lopez touched down in Los Angeles on November 24 with her 13-year-old twins, Emme and Max to spend the holiday with Affleck and his kids. On Thanksgiving, she posted a video from her final day on the set of her upcoming movie The Mother, which was filmed in Canada.
“Hey everybody, it’s my last day here shooting on The Mother out in Smithers in the snow, it’s been beautiful, but tonight I’m on my way home,” she said. “I’m so excited for Thanksgiving! I hope everybody has an amazing weekend with their families and their loved ones, there’s so much to be grateful for this year. I’m on my way!”
