Actress and presenter Drew Barrymore (“Santa Clarita Diet”) declared her undying love for ex-boyfriend Justin Long (“Tusk”) in the first episode of season 3 of her talk show, “Drew Barrymore Show”, aired this Monday (9/12) in the US.
The couple’s reunion was emotional. As they talked about their past, Long said, “I love that we kept our love, because I know by my side it will never go away. I love you always. I’m glad we can still have that. I mean it. I’ll love you to ever.”
The statement was immediately reciprocated by Barrymore. “I will always love you very much,” she said, through her tears. “You were so important to me. I feel like we’ve been through so much together.”
The two dated between 2007 and 2010, during which time they starred together in the romantic comedies “He’s Not That Into You” (2009) and “Love from a Distance” (2010). Though the relationship was short-lived, Barrymore said she is “so grateful” that Long was a part of her life.
“When we used to FaceTime each other, I would always say, ‘You know, I’ve really grown up, Justin,'” she continued. “I always wanted to prove to you that I was a different person than when we were dating.”
As much as the two are fine today, they themselves defined their relationship as “chaos”. “We’d get together and we’d break up,” recalled Barrymore. “It was very funny.”
Since they broke up, Justin Long has been in a relationship with actress Amanda Seyfried (“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”) and is currently dating actress Kate Bosworth (“Superman Returns”).
As for Barrymore, she was married to actor Will Kopelman (“Mundo Fashion”) from 2012 to 2016, with whom she had two daughters, Olive, nine, and Frankie, eight.
The actress said she never intends to marry again, but thinks she might get back to “living with someone” someday.
