Actors Drew Barrymore and Justin Long joined Oprah Winfrey yesterday to talk about their new romance.

'Die Hard 4' star Long sat in the audience as Barrymore was interviewed by Winfrey.

When asked about her relationship with Long, Barrymore said: "It's the best. This relationship is great; it's healthy and it's productive and it's supportive and it's full of humour."

Barrymore's production company, Flower Films, is producing Long's new film, 'He's Just Not That Into You', which also stars Jennifer Connelly and Scarlett Johansson.

When asked what he loved about the actress, Long said: "She smells great... (and) she's the most compassionate person I've ever met."

Twice-divorced Barrymore then added: "All our friends get along great, which is awesome because we travel together in packs. We're having an excellent time."

Thirty-three-year-old Barrymore was previously married to Jeremy Thomas, whom she divorced in 1995, and later married comedian Tom Green before the couple divorced in 2002.
