Justin Long has revealed he and Drew Barrymore shared a real romantic moment while shooting new rom-com Going The Distance.

The stars - who have dated on and off in real life - play a couple in a long distance relationship, and Justin revealed that while improvising a date scene in director Nanette Burstein's New York bar, they got so carried away kissing that they didn't even stop when it started raining.

He explained: "We shot one night at a bar called The Half King and in fact they used some of that footage in the movie. It started raining, I remember, and they brought us these two beers and we were just talking to each other.

"Drew's an amazing improviser and she was just coming up with all this stuff to ask me and I was responding and it just felt very organic. And then it started raining, and I remember this great moment where we kissed in the rain and people at the bar were getting up and moving inside and we just stayed out there. It was really nice."

Drew, 35, said it was easy to work with Justin, 32, on the movie, despite their relationship history.

She said:"It's great, I think it's a benefit. It makes it more real and free flowing."
