"My mother is staying with us now and we'll all go down the street to Matt Damon's house," Affleck shared. "We're all invited. Matt and my family are all like one big extended family for Thanksgiving. I'm looking forward to it a lot."

"This year we're going to Matt's house, but usually I cook and Casey [Affleck] and his family come over," Garner added. "This year Casey is going to be in Boston and we'll be home. I'll still cook some stuff. Ben and the kids want me to take my grandmother's sweet potato pudding, so I'll make that."

Affleck and Garner married in June 2005, and have three children: eight-year-old Violet, five-year-old Seraphina and two-year-old Samuel. Damon, meanwhile, wed Luciana Barroso in December 2005, and the couple have three daughters: eight-year-old Isabella, six-year-old Gia and four-year-old Stella.
