Rose McGowan is an ally of furry friends in need. The Charmed alum opened up to Us Weekly about her experience working to rescue animals while attending the Mercy for Animals Hidden Heroes Gala in Los Angeles on September 23.

“The last time I was there, they rescued a group of goats from a backyard butcher,” the 44-year-old animal activist said of working with The Gentle Barn — an organization that aids abused or neglected animals who are sick, lame, scared or too old to be adopted into a private home. “They were starved and malnourished. They named one Rose after me because it came up to me and nestled its head in my arm. So that’s a good memory.”

The star, who was once meat eater, no longer considers it a staple in her diet. “I’ve mostly transitioned out of it [eating meat]. Occasionally I fall off the wagon, usually not,” she told Us. “My diet consists of pasta and yogurt primarily.”

McGowan added that living a meat-free lifestyle has been positive experience. “I feel better for sure,” she affirmed. “I can’t imagine you get many nutrients from meat, other than iron and there are other ways to find that, so you just have to be creative.”

The Planet Terror actress, who now rocks a buzzed hairstyle, confessed that while she tends to shy away from the glitz and glam associated with Tinseltown, she made it a point to show up for defenseless animals.

“We’re here for a good cause, that’s the only reason,” she said of walking the red carpet. “I volunteered at animal shelters and farm animal rescue centers. So it’s a cause I believe in.”

Drake Shows Off His ‘Degrassi’ Royalty Check: ‘Money Still Coming In’

Off to the bank! Drake revealed that he is still receiving royalty payments from Degrassi: The Next Generation in a hilarious Instagram post on Tuesday, July 18.

“Degrassi money still coming in don’t sleeeeeeeep…???????,” he captioned a photo of the $ 8.25 check, which was dated back to March 31.

The“Passionfruit” rapper, 30, appeared on the Canadian TV series from 2001-2007 for eight consecutive seasons, playing wheelchair-bound high school basketball star Jimmy Brooks.

The Grammy winner opened up about the acting gig in a 2011 interview. “My mother was very sick. We were poor, like broke. The only money I had was coming in off of Canadian TV, which wasn’t much money when you break it down,” he told Complex at the time. “A season of Canadian television is under a teacher’s salary, I’ll tell you that much.”

He added to W Magazine in 2015: “Back then, I’d spend a full day on set and then go to the studio to make music until 4 or 5 a.m. I’d sleep in my dressing room and then be in front of the cameras again by 9 a.m. Eventually, they realized I was juggling two professions and told me I had to choose. I chose this life.”

The music producer, who released his fifth studio album More Life in March, has also alluded to his Degrassi days on several of his early tracks. “They like, ‘Damn who’s Drake, where’s wheelchair Jimmy at?” he rapped on his 2007 song “The Presentation.”

In his song “You Know, You Know” produced by Kanye West, the Canadian native crooned, “I’m the reason you can find my city on an atlas page / Half a million dollars later and my taxes paid / And I’m still spendin’ money from my actin days.”

Canadian fans of the teen soap opera paid homage to Drake’s performance by plastering pictures of his face on wheelchair signs throughout Toronto in 2014. When asked by TMZ at the time what he thought of the trend dubbed as “Draking,” he replied, “It’s great.”
