Special Thanksgiving Edition

As Americans prepare to talk turkey, we had to ask, what's a poor ol'celebrity got to be thankful for?

Denise Richards

(Richards: Armando Gallo/Retna)

? MARLON WAYANS (”Scary Movie”) ”My nine brothers and sisters who ate up all the food and left me hungry on Thanksgiving so that one day I would strive to make some damn money to have a dinner big enough to feed all 10 of our greedy black asses.”

? ELLEN BURSTYN (”Requiem for a Dream”) ”That I’m working more at this age than at any stage in my career.”

? KELLY PRESTON (”For Love of the Game”) ”Trailer trash food – sloppy joes, corn dogs, and Tater Tots.”

? ALLISON JANNEY (”The West Wing”) ”False eyelashes, martinis, and bikini waxes.”

? JEFF GOLDBLUM ”I’m thankful for cold cereal, which gives me great comfort and pleasure.”
