Drew tells of relationship struggles

DREW Barrymore admitted that she struggles to balance her work and relationships as she attended the world premiere of her new film, 'Going The Distance', in London's Leicester Square last night.

The 35-year-old twice-married star walked the red carpet with her on-off boyfriend Justin Long, who co-stars with her in the romantic comedy about a couple trying to cope with a long-distance relationship.

"I love what I do so much and the idea of having to give it up for a relationship is terrifying," she said. "I also think it's unhealthy to give up your whole life for someone, and put all your hopes and happiness on them. I think a lot of women are struggling with that."

The actress, producer and director claims she has a lot in common with her character in the largely improvised comedy.

"Erin and I are birds of a feather. I like to have a drink at the end of a crap day. I like to swear, hang out with the guys, talk dirty with my girlfriends."
