Long Distance Celebrity Couples
On-again/off-again lovers Drew Barrymore and Justin Long give us an intimate look at their special connection in ‘Going the Distance.’
Although the two had been best buds for seven years, Drew Barrymore and Justin Long took their relationship to the next level while filming He’s Just Not That Into You in August of ‘07.
The happy couple reveled in their romance for another year, and Justin was so taken with Drew that he invited her to Thanksgiving dinner at his parents’ place.
Sadly, the lovefest fizzled out (ironically right after talk of a possible marriage hit the newsstands) but the actors were determined to remain friends.

It didn’t take long for history to repeat itself though, as the pair split again in April of this year, got back together briefly, and finally called it a day roughly a month ago, according to sources.
If by any chance you’re still on the fence about seeing their endearing romcom, in theaters nationwide September 3, a recent interview with Drew may just give you a push:
