The 45-year-old Entourage star and the 37-year-old Smash actress posed together as they worked on removing trash at Malibu’s iconic Zuma Beach.
The Bachelor‘s Amanda Stanton and model Kassidy Ramirez were also on hand to pick up trash and keep the beaches clean.

The beach cleanup was part of the Shiseido Blue Project, an initiative put on by the cosmetics company to help keep the oceans clean.
The organization was joined by members of the World Surf League Pure and the conservation team Wildcoast.
Katharine managed to add some style to the standard blue graphic T-shirt that all the beach cleaners wore.
She had her top tied off to show off just a hint of her toned tummy, and she paired it with a white linen skirt that was sure to keep her cool.
The American Idol star also had on a long dangling belt and matched her skirt with brilliant white trainers.
She wore her lustrous brunette tresses parted down the middle and in delicate waves over her shoulders, and she blocked out the piercing sun with thick black cat-eye sunglasses.

The actress and singer looked proud as she showed off the bucket full of trash she had collected.
She appeared to be tossing her findings in a colander first to sift away the excess sand.
Katharine spoke with The Hollywood Reporter on Friday about her recycling education and the importance of cutting down on plastic waste.
‘I was educated and was like “Oh my god, [plastic straws are] really horrible, they’re getting stuck in these animals and our creatures in the ocean,” and now we have a problem with the masks going into the ocean, so it’s constant issues that we’re dealing with,’ she said.
‘The education on recycling is really not great, the messaging is really confusing, and I love to recycle but I find it very confusing. Hollywood could definitely help with that,’ she continued.
Education effort: Katharine told The Hollywood Report that recycling education in the US is ‘really not great’ and said Hollywood could help people understand how to recycle better

Adrian was even more casual for his beach outing with his blue T-shirt and a pair of khaki pants cuffed at the bottom.
He opted to simply go barefoot rather than get sand in his shoes.
‘Getting up and going to do something to make the ocean a better place, that’s what it’s all about,’ said the actor, who has long devoted himself to environmental causes.
‘It’s been my focus for some time with my work at [my non-profit] Lonely Whale and the U.N. I love to see when particularly businesses get together and start doing stuff because they have so much influence and so much power.’
The Drive Me Crazy actor was also excited about corporations joining in the fight against climate change, saying it ‘is such an important piece of the puzzle, because consumer behavior is part of it but if we don’t have companies that are actually creating products that are ocean safe, like Shiseido, then consumers can’t actually do the right thing.’

Amanda Stanton, who appeared on the 20th season of The Bachelor and later won the third season of Bachelor In Paradise, was among those joining in the beach cleanup.
She contrasted her T-shirt with a low-key set of acid-wash jean shorts and white sandals while wearing slim black sunglasses.
With her was her pal Kassidy Ramirez, who wore jeans in a similar style and went barefoot.
According to THR, volunteers for the event were required to either provide proof that they were fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, or to show a negative Covid-19 test result.
