Drew good

ACTRESS DREW Barrymore has donated $1million of her own money to the World Food Programme to feed thousands of schoolchildren in Kenya.



She handed over the cheque on billionaire television mogul Oprah Winfrey’s chatshow, in an emotional show during which she received a phone call from pal Cameron Diaz.

Barrymore, 33, a WFP ambassador against hunger, announced her pledge on The Oprah Winfrey Show to launch the agency’s $3 billion “Fill the Cup” campaign that aims to feed 59 million hungry school children in developing countries for a year.

“I have seen with my own eyes what a difference a simple cup of nutritious porridge can make in a child’s life,” said the “Charlie’s Angels” star, who has travelled to Kenya twice in the past two years for WFP.

Drew’s new beau Justin Long, 29, was in the audience to watch her present the cheque to Oprah.

When she asked what he liked about Barrymore, the Die Hard 4.0 star said: “She smells good.

“She’s beautiful...and funny. The most compassionate person I’ve ever met.”
