Lots of lawyers do charity work. But Rose's devotion to animal rights is on another level. In addition to repping multi-hyphenate Ben Stiller, directors Cameron Crowe and Joe Johnston and writer Steve Zallian, Rose founded and runs his own Los Angeles-based animal rescue organization "It's 24-7, nonstop," he says. "Last night we were at an emergency hospital from 8 to 10 because one of our cats had a problem." This year, Rose stumbled across a hoarder who kept 95 abused felines in a trailer. When the City of Los Angeles wouldn't step in, he took matters into his own hands, accepting responsibility for finding homes for about 75 of them. "I don't know who's crazier, the hoarder or the city for refusing to bust him even though they knew what kind of situation it was," he says. The man was eventually arrested and charged with 46 counts of animal cruelty.
