How can absolute zero exist if Einstein proved that mass and energy are related in E=mc^2? Shouldn’t that mean that anything with mass has energy?

Absolute zero is temperature, so it’s just the motion component of energy. The potential energy locked away in the mass itself isn’t part of the calculation.
