Drew Barrymore and Justin Long: So In Love
They may have an unconventional relationship, but an insider says it works for these lovebirds.
Drew Barrymore and Justin Long may have a bizarre relationship to us outsiders, but sources say they are as close as ever and having entirely too much fun traveling with each other for their separate work projects. Last week found the new age lovebirds canoodling at the Tribeca Film Institute premiere of Drew’s new movie Everybody’s Fine. The film also stars Robert De Niro, Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell, who all joined Drew at the theater and the dinner party afterwards at Tavern on the Green.
“Drew was happy and glowing with Justin by her side,” an eyewitness tells BettyConfidential. “She invited an additional small group of friends to join them and they all partied at Tavern for a while with the whole cast. Drew and Justin spent lots of time talking to her movie siblings, Sam and Kate.”
While Drew, 34, and Justin, 30, have had their ups and downs as a couple, the on-off lovebirds heated things back up while shooting the romantic comedy Going the Distance in the summer.
A source adds, “Drew and Justin are super close. They share a love of animals, dogs in particular, and they enjoy walking around the city. They love spending time together and are really happy as they are. They don’t feel the need to define their relationship and are happy with things just the way they are.”
While she may have had romantic eyes for Justin only, Drew shared a giant hug with Robert DeNiro at the premiere. On the red carpet, Drew said of the whole cast, “We love Robert. We couldn’t have been more proud to be his kids.”
