Drew Barrymore knows why the ladies want Justin Long.

The talk show host shared that she was "very much in love with Justin" when they dated from 2008 to 2010 because he is hilarious.

"You want to know why he gets all the ladies?" Drew said on comedian Mike Birbiglia's A Little Bit Extra podcast July 28. "Well, there's a few reasons, but the comedy is definitely—he is one of the sharpest, wittiest, he's brilliant and he'll just knock your socks off with laughter."

Looking back, Drew admitted she never understood why the paparazzi was so fascinated by her romance with the Tusk actor.

"I didn't get why we were ever an interesting couple," she said. "Like, that didn't make any sense to me, like, who cares? We're not exciting."

Drew, 47, and Justin, 44, met in 2008 on the set of He's Just Not That Into You before dating on and off for two years.

In 2010, the pair rekindled their romance on the set of Going the Distance. That same year, Justin accompanied Drew to the Golden Globe Awards. However, not long after that, they called it quits for good.

Though the couple went their separate ways, they remain friends—and fans of one another. Take, how in March 2020, Drew commented on Paper Magazine's Justin Long appreciation post with, "He's great."

While Drew is still on the market, Justin is now dating Superman Returns actress Kate Bosworth.
