I think all of us could see this one coming from the first time that Drew Barrymore and Justin Long went out. In what should not come as news to anyone, Drew Barrymore's publicist told the world yesterday that Drew and Justin were done. Well considering that most toys break long before this, I'm actually surprised that she held on this long. Justin presumably has a busted heart. See, Justin thought this was going to be more than just a dating thing. Every time I saw a photo of the two of them together you could just see the puppy dog expression on his face and know this was going to end badly.
To me, and to anyone that I talked to about this, they could all see what apparently Justin could not. Drew was just out to have fun and Justin wanted more. It doesn't have to be a celebrity relationship. I'm sure that all of you see this everyday. It is what happens when someone makes an emotional commitment and the other person doesn't. Justin fell hard and is probably crushed. Drew, on the other hand is probably looking for another guy as we speak and is going to have some more fun.
I think this is pretty similar to the Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson situation. Kate was in the having fun mode and Owen was in the lovestruck, and then get heart crushed kind of mode. I don't think and certainly hope that Justin will not react the same way, but I also have lost a little respect and love for Drew.
I think that if all of us could see this coming, that Drew herself should have known it was happening and maybe distanced herself from it or found a new plaything before it got this far. I also am wondering, and perhaps speculating whether Drew is changing as a person. It seems as if every time we see a photo of her when she is not on a set that she is drinking, and I wonder if this is maybe the reason she had blinders on when it came to Justin's feelings.
I'm totally Team Justin on this one.
