Stuck at home with no power? Don’t worry, Anna Kendrick is just like you

More than 100,000 Mainers are headed into prime turkey-basting hours with no power in their homes, thanks to the winter storm that dumped a mess of sticky, heavy snow on the state overnight.

If there’s any silver lining on an unfortunate circumstance like that, it’s the fact that natural phenomena like snowstorms and disappointing holidays spare no one — no matter how rich or famous. Take heart, Mainers, you are not alone.

Anna Kendrick — the Academy Award-nominated actress from “Up in the Air,” “Twilight” and “Pitch Perfect” — is apparently in Maine for the holiday, and has had her Thanksgiving plans dashed, just like yours.

She posted the photo below on Instagram this morning, with the caption, “No power, no heat, but we’ll eat canned cranberry sauce and be pleased as punch.”

Kendrick tagged the ‘gram with emoji reading “207,” the state’s area code. The actress hails from Portland, so it’s a safe bet that’s where the photo was taken.

See? Celebrities. They’re just like you.

Happy Thanksgiving.
