Are Drew Barrymore and Justin Long Back Together?

Once upon a time, Drew Barrymore and Justin Long were one of the cutest Hollywood couple anyone could imagine. The two met on the film He's Just Not That Into You and embarked on a three-year relationship. 

Sine they split for good in 2010, they've each moved on. Barrymore got married and had two children before getting divorced in 2016. Long was most recently linked to Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry, who he had been with since 2016. 


But this weekend, the pair was spotted together in New York City. Is this a new beginning for the couple? Are Drew Barrymore and Justin Long back together? Read on to find out.

1. He IS Just That Into You

The pair met filming He's Just Not That Into You in 2008. They reportedly started dating after filming wrapped and were frequently seen together in nightclubs

2. Rocky Road

The couple may have been in love but they had some pretty rough patches in their relationship. At one point, Barrymore left Long and he was so distraught he refused to work on her directorial debut, Whip It. A source at the time said, "He couldn't stand working with her and not being with her. He's too upset," the source said. "She dumped him. She was hot and cold. One minute she was in love with him and the next she wanted to break up with him."

3. On Again

The pair got back together to film Going The Distance, a comedy about a couple trying to make a bi-coastal relationship work. At the time, Barrymore said " There’s a lot of honesty here. When we’re emotional in the movie, we’ve been there."

4. And Off Again

The movie wasn't enough for the couple to really go the distance and they called off their relationship for good in 2010. They did manage to do publicity for the film together, despite the romantic estrangement


5. Moving On

Barrymore eventually went on to marry Will Kopelman and they have two daughters, 5½-year-old Olive and 4-year-old Frankie. The couple divorced in 2016. Since then, Barrymore confessed that she tired dating apps. During an appearance on Ellen, she said she tried an app and got a disappointing but hilarious response.
