Drew Barrymore is reuniting with her ex, Justin Long.
His host The Drew Barrymore ShowThe 47-year-old will premiere the third season of her favorite chat show on Monday with an emotional visit from Long, 44, who she dated from 2007 to 2010.
A preview of the season premiere shows the former couple embracing before sitting down for an emotional discussion about their relationship. Dressed in a cream suit and matching platform heels, Barrymore broke down in tears as she discussed their past together.
“I feel like we’ve been through so much together,” she told Long. “When we’d talk and FaceTime I’d always say, ‘You know, I really raised Justin.’ I always wanted to prove to you how different a person I was from when we were dating.”
“You were the best,” he replied.
Barrymore went into a bit more detail about their relationship, which she called “hella-fun.”
“We had so much fun but we were more hedonistic. A little more immature. We’d get together, we’d break up,” she said. “It was a mess, it was fun.”
“Fun mayhem – yes, most hedonism is fun,” the Barbarian the actor agreed.
Despite their wonderful memories, the couple eventually broke up. You’ve been dating for a while now Blue Crush Actress Kate Bosworth, 39, since 2021, while Barrymore is a single mother of two after divorcing husband Will Kopelman in 2016.
The talk show host had nothing but positive things to say about her time with Long, with whom she co-starred in It’s just not in you. In July, Barrymore opened up about how she doesn’t understand why she and Long were such a big deal in the public eye. However, he explained why he is so good.
“I didn’t understand why we were ever an interesting couple. That didn’t make any sense to me. Like: Who cares? We’re not exciting,” Barrymore explained to comedian Mike Birbiglia on her talk show. Birbiglia made his film debut Going the distance, the 2010 film in which Barrymore and Long played long-distance lovers.
“We’re not the first people to meet on set and have a romance,” Barrymore explained, adding that she was “very much in love with Justin.”
She added that one of Long’s most wonderful qualities is that “he’s funny. The sharpest wit. You want to know why he gets all the ladies? Well, there’s a few reasons, but … he’s brilliant. He’ll just knock your socks off from laughter”.
During a 2019 interview on his podcast, Life is short with Justin Longhe said a long time ago Us Weekly that he would love to have Barrymore as a guest on his show.
“Talk about enjoying talking to someone,” she explained. “She’s a great conversationalist, so, of course, yes.”
Long isn’t the only ex the thrice-divorced Barrymore has reunited with on TV. She welcomed her second husband Tom Green to her show in 2020, even though it was the first time in 15 years that they were face to face.
“You’ve had a whole life and I’ve had a whole life, and it’s really nice to get together and check in and talk about it,” Barrymore told Green.
