Drew Barrymore and Justin Long have revealed they had no problems shooting steamy scenes for their latest movie.
The pair - who have had an on-off romance since 2007 - play a couple trying to keep their relationship alive despite being apart in Going The Distance, and Justin told Extra of filming the sex scenes: "It's just a lot more comfortable. It's a lot more familiar... the nipple touching."
Drew said the couple's real-life history helped them when it came to portraying their characters.
"When he and I are going through something emotional, we've been there with each other so we can bring some honesty to it," said the 35-year-old, who also shared the screen with Justin, 32, in 2009's He's Just Not That Into You. "I'm not a Puritan who goes home and puts her doily on her chest and crosses her hands and goes to sleep every night."
