Shannen Doherty has one great friend in her bestie, Sarah Michelle Gellar.

The actress sat down with Entertainment Tonight on Monday and dished about Doherty’s cancer battle and how her health is today.

“Shannen’s incredible. What she’s done for other women going through it is […] so brave, and that’s what real bravery is, is to go through the hardest part of your life and show people, it’s OK to be scared,? Gellar said. ?And it’s OK to be vulnerable, and you can do it.?

Gellar revealed that one thing that keeps Doherty going is an intense dance workout class she takes frequently. Doherty has even been known to drag Gellar to the workouts as well.

“The fact that she gets up and goes to those dance classes? The last thing I want to do is go to these really hard dance classes and sweat that hard and work that hard,? Gellar shared, ?but I have to remind myself, if she’s getting up there and doing it, then it’s important that I do it, too.?
