Starring in a movie with your ex and possibly current boyfriend has some interesting consequences. One of them—that you’re asked about your relationship so many freaking times that you run out of words to describe it. So we are happy to see Drew Barrymore getting so creative with her slang in describing Justin Long while she promotes “Going the Distance.” Here’s her most recent quote about him in the new Harper’s Bazaar: “I couldn’t love, respect, admire and enjoy that individual more than I do. It would be physically impossible for me to have any more giggly joy at this person… He’s the cat’s pajamas.” In Drew’s honor, can we bring back the phrase “cat’s pajamas”? I think that’s cute.

It’s a shockingly awesome week for movie-going. Maybe it’s a back-to-school gift to the kiddies? Or an end-of-summer peacemaker? Maybe I’m just in a really good mood and these are actually craptastic movies. Whatever is going on, I’m into it. This week’s movies also cover a huge spectrum of the human experience so no matter what mood you’re in, you’ll probably be psyched. This week, go see “Going the Distance,” “The American,” “Machete,” “The Winning Season,” “Suck,” “Last Train Home,” or “Prince of Broadway.” If you hate them, I’ll totally give you a refund. But not really. Keep reading »
Are these lovebirds back together once more? Long implied that it was possible to a New York mag reporter and he and Drew do look awfully comfortable clutching hands at the premiere of their new movie, “Going The Distance.” His cunnilingus-loving presence is irresistible. Also, are we to assume that cranberry lips and crimped hair are in for fall? [London, 8/19/10] Keep reading »
“We’ve been through everything, the whole gamut of the heights of love to the depth of heartbreak. I mean, we’ve been on quite a journey. And the idea that a person that you’re in a relationship with can change you so drastically and have that deep of an effect on your life, just that idea, I mean, what a gift to be able to use that, to be able to create something from it that we can see again. It’s like a little time capsule. It’s a bit of permanence that usually doesn’t exist when you’re with somebody.”
– Justin Long on his on-and-off romantic relationship with Drew Barrymore, who is also his co-star in the upcoming romantic comedy “Going the Distance.” Every time this otherwise unassuming dude opens his mouth — whether it’s to opine on love or his desire to perform oral sex — I fall more in love with him.

“It’s funny because usually it’s the girl who’s naked. I was like, ‘That’s right, bitch. The tables are turned!’”
– Drew Barrymore has a laugh about Justin Long‘s nude scene in their upcoming comedy, “Going The Distance.” I’m bummed these two broke up — I hope promoting the movie brings them back together! [Nylon] Keep reading »
Normally, I would rather bang my head repeatedly against a wall for two hours than go see a romantic comedy. But “Going the Distance,” with real-life couple Drew Barrymore
and Justin Long, looks kind of awesome. Why are these two so dang cute? Keep reading »
Until a few years ago, I never would have considered a long distance relationship a realistic option for myself. I once dated a guy who lived on the other side of the city and that relationship was challenging enough, though to be fair, our problems probably had more to do with him being a douche bag than the 30-minute drive between our apartments, but still. Long distance relationships were what other people did — people who spent all their money on gas and plane tickets and their weeknights scouring the internet for travel deals and want ads in their significant other’s city. They weren’t for people like me, who’d rather spend money on shoes, and evenings cooking dinner with a boyfriend I could see as often as I wanted. Keep reading »
It was early spring, late afternoon, a couple of years ago and I was having beers and burgers with some girlfriends. It was warm enough that we sat on the patio outside where we ate and drank and talked about boys.
I was the youngest in the group — still a few months shy of my 30th birthday and conversation soon turned to the challenge of finding a good man before we all died alone with a bunch of cats in the living room and stale cereal in the cabinet.
“I don’t understand why it’s so hard,” I said, “I just want someone who’s funny and charming and kind and gracious and creative and ambitious and smart. Curly hair, glasses and dimples don’t hurt either,” I added.
My friend Meg immediately said she knew the perfect guy for me — that he was everything on my list.
