So are they – or aren’t they a couple? Justin Long and Drew Barrymore continue to make us guess at the premiere of their new movie, Going the Distance in Hollywood last night. They sure looked cozy! I hope they are still together, I think they make the cutest couple. They have great on-screen chemistry!
In Going the Distance, they play a couple who are trying to make a long-distance relationship work. They recently talked about their first on-screen kiss.
“I just was lucky, for me, because he’s a good kisser,” Barrymore said. “So I was like, ‘Phew! Thank God.’ It’s the worst when you’re kissing someone who’s not a good kisser, and you’re trying to make it look good, and you feel like you’re just working on your own. At least it was a real team effort.”
Their characters meet at a bar, so they’re already buzzed. By the end of the night, they’re drunk, they smoke some pot and then they kiss.
“The first kiss for us in the movie was very sloppy,” Long said. “We were stoned and it was just so easy to do, we’re so comfortable. I think you just hope that you’re invested in the scene, hopefully, and sometimes it can be a surprise when you’ve never kissed anyone before you’ve just met recently, and people have different ways with kissing, and sometimes it can be very jarringly uncomfortable. There can be very little movement involved, and then a quick, sudden movement from the tongue that you don’t expect.”
Going the Distance is in theaters September 3. (I can’t wait to see this!)
