She’s moved on! It’s been two years since Drew Barrymore split from her ex-husband Will Kopelman, and now, she’s seemingly reliving her past. According to Page Six, the actress and her ex-boyfriend, Justin Long, were spotted together at the Lowell Hotel in NYC on Monday, Sept. 10.
The former duo previously dated from 2007 to 2010. For the past two years, Justin, 40, has been dating Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry. Drew, 43, was married to Will from 2012 until 2016 (they have two daughters together, Olive, 5, and Frankie, 4), to Tom Green from 2001 until 2002, and to Jeremy Thomas from 1994 until 1995.
Back in 2009, the mom-of-two revealed to People that her exes “are really important to me, and I am very close with them.” She added, “Just because the ‘in love’ doesn’t work doesn’t mean the love goes away.”
She also once opened up about how she never actually expected to get a divorce. “[Divorce] was just like my worst nightmare. I so wanted to raise kids in this ultra-traditional way and do everything so the polar opposite of my experience,” Drew has said.
Drew’s rumored fling with Justin comes at the perfect time. In a previous interview, The Wedding Singer star opened up about the “dark” place she was in following her divorce from Will. “I was not looking for a job. I had actually stopped acting for several years because I wanted to raise my daughters. But then a shift happened in my life and I was separating from their father and it was just a very difficult time,” she said.
“I definitely personally was in a very dark and fearful place and then this [Santa Clarita Diet] script came along and I was like, ‘Yeah I don’t think this is a good time’ and ironically, I think it taught me a valuable life lesson,” Drew continued. “Sometimes when you think something is the worst timing and the worst idea, it can actually become the thing that saves you and pulls you out and gives you a new focus, and empowerment, and switches your constant stuck way of thinking and feeling and [puts] it into something else that might actually get you to a healthier place faster.” We’re so happy for you, Drew!
