Drew: Justin's a 'good kisser'

Drew Barrymore says it was easy working with co-star Justin Long - because he's a good kisser.
The actress, who stars with Justin - her on-off boyfriend - in Going The Distance, said working on a romantic movie with an actor who couldn't kiss made things awkward, reported Collider.com.
"I just was lucky because Justin is a good kisser - 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, but you feel like you're just working on your own," she said at the film's LA press conference.
"At least it was a real team effort," she added.
Justin concurred, saying: "She's a great kisser too. The first kiss for us in the movie was very sloppy because we were supposed to be stoned.
"It was just so easy to do, and we were so comfortable. Sometimes it can be a surprise, when you've never kissed the person before and you've just recently met, and people have different ways of kissing, which sometimes can be jarringly uncomfortable. There can be very little movement involved, and then, a sudden, quick movement from a tongue that you didn't expect."
Barrymore and Long originally dated for a year before splitting in July 2008.
The couple insisted they remained "close friends", but after playing lovers in Going The Distance the romance appeared to be back on.
