Drew is not Dating Justin…or Anyone Else

I don’t think Drew Barrymore minds when people talk about her, especially when it’s about something as innocent as who she’s currently dating. The new Drew doesn’t really seem to mind much of anything. And by new, I mean, this Drew that is constantly happy and just wanting everyone around her to be happy. But, if people are going to talk, she at least wants to set them straight and this time, it’s in regards to her ex-boyfriend, Justin Long. No, they’re not dating and no, she’s not dating anyone else.

When I first saw this story, I have to admit, I thought that they probably were seeing each other again but didn’t really want to take it public again just yet. But a closer read shows me that there may be more to this whole Drew/Justin thing than we originally thought. Or at least that I did. From US,

“Despite public PDA earlier this week with ex Justin Long at the NYC premiere of her new HBO flick Grey Gardens, Drew Barrymore tells Usmagazine.com she is single.

“I love it! It’s great!” she told Us Thursday at the Los Angeles premiere of Grey Gardens. “I get to be who I am and do what I want and be with the people I love. I feel like I have everything, and I’m very fortunate, and it’s a very rich, fulfilling time in my life.”

On Friday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, she adds that she and Long – who are set to shoot the romantic comedy Going the Distance later this year – are just “good friends.”

“We’re doing a film this summer,” she says. “I guess people find it a little confusing. I totally understand. It seems like, ‘What is the deal with them?’ But we just adore each other. We’re in each other’s lives, and we’re friends, and we’re working together, and we have worked together.”

Would she be jealous if he began dating someone else? Nah. She wants him to meet “fantastic people because he’s a great guy, and he deserves the most happiness,” she says.

“And, for me, I am still just not ready for anything,” she continues. “I’ve spent two years really with a very different life than I’ve had before. My priorities have changed. I directed a film. I did this drama [Grey Gardens]. It was something I’ve never done anything like … and I don’t know how to maintain a relationship to be honest, while I’m doing all of that.”

So, what do I think is the real deal? I think that Drew and Justin probably aren’t actually dating. That being said, I think that at least one of the reasons for the breakup may have been that Drew really is just too busy and too screwed up about relationships (because oh lordy, she is!) to be with anyone right now. I think that the most recent affection between the two may be a case of lots of love still there but just a simple case of bad timing. Which makes this whole entire couple not working out just that much sadder.
