Emily Blunt, Liam Hemsworth and Julie Bowen are grateful for what they have, but that doesn't mean they're all that excited about Thanksgiving. In the weeks leading up to the holiday, E! News learned that the three actors aren't into traditional Turkey Days—and it's not just because two of them are foreign.

"We don't do Thanksgiving," said Blunt, who next appears in Into the Woods (in theaters Dec. 25). The actress, who has a daughter with her American actor husband John Krasinski, explained that British people associate turkey with Christmas. "This year, I said to my husband, 'We're gonna have two turkeys because we haven't' done a turkey at Christmas for the last couple of Christmases and I want to do it.'"

Regardless, Blunt has quite an appetite!

Asked if she likes to cook, she told Alicia Quarles, "I love it. Oh, I love it!"

"If I could watch the Food Network all day I would," she said. "I haven't watched the Food Network since my daughter arrived. I used to be glued to it. It's an obsession. I feel hungry thinking about it right now."

Meanwhile, Liam recently returned to his home country after completing a worldwide press tour for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. "We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but we have similar days" the actor told Terrence Jenkins. Of course, the single star has celebrated the holiday in the U.S. before. "I've been here six years," Chris Hemsworth's brother said, "so I've has a lot of Thanksgivings."

What about Julie?

The actress and married mother of three said she's already experienced the holiday seven times more than most people have this year. "I did a week of Thanksgiving, complete with three turkeys. Like raw turkeys and a festival of salmonella," Julie told Will Marfuggi of filming Modern Family's annual holiday episode. "I'm already done with Thanksgiving! I'm ready for the next thing." However, Julie will also be celebrating another holiday with one half of her family on Friday—it's a family tradition. "Thanksgiving will be with my family and then the next morning we wake up and it's Christmas. Bam! It's like a wormhole!" the TV star said, laughing. "It's like Interstellar, man. Chris Nolan, you can't beat that!"

"Then we do Easter the next day," she continued. Wait, what?!

"No, we don't," Julie told E! News
