If you’re fans of Justin Long and Drew Barrymore as a couple we have somewhat sad news for you: they evidently are not dating. Drew Barrymore recently denied the two had reunited as a couple while on her press junket for the new HBO movie, Grey Gardens. While on Friday's Ellen DeGeneres Show, she stated that she and Long were just good friends, saying, "We're doing a film this summer. I guess people find it a little confusing. I totally understand. It seems like, 'What is the deal with them?' But we just adore each other. We're in each other's lives, and we're friends, and we're working together, and we have worked together." Drew would actually like for Long to meet "fantastic people because he's a great guy, and he deserves the most happiness."
Don’t feel sorry for Drew, though. The actress went on to say, "And, for me, I am still just not ready for anything. I've spent two years really with a very different life than I've had before. My priorities have changed. I directed a film. I did this drama [Grey Gardens]. It was something I've never done anything like ... and I don't know how to maintain a relationship to be honest, while I'm doing all of that."
For now Drew says she’s happy with her 14-year relationship with her Labrador-Chow mix dog, Flossy. We understand that. Honestly, sometimes a girl just needs a break. When she’s ready to date again, we imagine there will be a line around the block to date the quirky and lovable actress. But right now she’s just having fun and honestly, isn’t that what being single is all about?
