The great debate is over: although Drew and Justin seem to be constantly off and on, they’re not only together, but happier than ever!

Drew Barrymore and Justin long seem to break up and make up more than any couple we know, but for the moment at least HollywoodLife.com can confirm that they’re blissfully in love!

“Of course they are a real life couple!” Drew and Justin’s Going the Distance director Nanette Burstein told us exclusively at the film’s LA premiere August 23. “They are a couple in love and have a lot of interesting romantic feelings for each other.”

We’re so glad to see these two officially back together and seemingly solid, especially because their relationship has been tumultuous from the get-go. They first started dating in 2007 only to split a year later; they reunited while filming Distance in 2009 but broke things off earlier this year.  Drew, 35, was rumored to be dating ABC exec Cort Cass.

Although Drew refuses to speak out about her love for Justin, he doesn’t seem to have the same problem. “We’ve been through everything, the whole gamut of the heights of love to the depth of heartbreak,” the 32-year-old actor told New York Magazine. “I mean, we’ve been on quite a journey. And the idea that a person that you’re in a relationship with can change you so drastically and have that deep of an effect on your life, just that idea, I mean, what a gift to be able to use that, to be able to create something from it that we can see again. It’s like a little time capsule. It’s a bit of permanence that usually doesn’t exist when you’re with somebody.”
