Drew Barrymore and Justin Long have been an item in real life and have now taken their love to the big screen in “Going The Distance.” However, the sometimes couple kept Access Hollywood guessing about their current couple status when we caught up with them on Monday at the Los Angeles premiere of their new movie.
“Justin and I are a mystery,” a coy Drew told Access on the red carpet.
Justin also dodged confirming if they’re presently an item, saying, “We are on… the red carpet.”
Though Drew and Justin remained mum, Access spotted the duo holding hands and whispering affectionately into each other’s ears on Monday.
Their “Distance” co-star, Christina Applegate, told Access Drew and Justin were private during the shooting of “Going The Distance,” but seemed to easily click.
“They seem to be very good friends and that’s all I know about them,” Christina told Access. “They’re very private people… but they work very well together as actors. I think had they known each other or not known each other for some reason they had a nice chemistry together.”
Earlier this month at the movie’s junket, Drew said she said a plan for playing opposite Justin on the big screen after having dated him.
“Everybody knows we have a history together and I just thought, ‘Oh, you know what? Let’s exploit it,” Drew told Access’ Tony Potts.
“I just thought, God, we have like seen each other through highs and lows,” she added.
