Drew Barrymore broke down into tears after reuniting with ex-boyfriend Justin Long on a recent episode of her talk show.

The opening episode of season three of The Drew Barrymore Show featured a reunion of the former romantic partners, as actors Drew Barrymore and Justin Long met up years after breaking up for the last time.

When the ex-couple met up again on camera there were tears from Barrymore as the pair hugged once another before sitting down and catching up.

Clearly emotional about the reunion, the 47-year-old actor reflected on how much they'd matured over the years.

She said: "I feel like we've been through so much together too.

"I feel like when we used to talk and FaceTime I was always like, 'You know, I've really grown up, Justin.' I always wanted to prove what a different person I was than when we dated.

"We had so much fun, but we were more hedonistic, more immature. We would get together, we would break up. There was chaos, it was hella fun."

Long quipped back that Barrymore was 'the best' and that 'most hedonism is fun', getting a laugh out of Barrymore which banished the initial tears.

He said he remembers how they 'laughed so much' while they were together, and said he was so glad 'we maintained our love because I know for my end it will never go away'.

While the couple were dating they starred together in He's Just Not That Into You and Going The Distance, and though they haven't been together for over a decade they still speak very highly of each other.

As they chatted the pair affirmed that they would always love each other even if they were no longer together, as the 44-year-old Long is now in a relationship with Kate Bosworth and has previously said he's 'found the one'.

Barrymore told her ex-boyfriend 'all I want in life is your success and happiness' and spoke of how 'thrilled' she was that Long was in a happy relationship.

Anyone potentially hoping the pair would get back together are probably going to be disappointed, however, as Long said when it comes to making him happy Bosworth 'does all those things'.

He added that his new partner 'adores' Barrymore, describing Bosworth as 'the most supportive, most wonderful' person he knows.

Long suggested that the three of them should go out together sometime, to which Barrymore agreed, and given how much they say they all like each other it should go much better than you'd expect dinner with the ex to go.

In other recent Drew Barrymore news, she recently filmed herself howling with excitement after discovering a previously hidden window in her new apartment which the previous owners had walled over.
