Drew Barrymore, throughout her tenure as host of The Drew Barrymore Show, which premiered in 2020, has become known not only as a stellar host, but as a  candid and vulnerable one.

Nearly no topic is off limits over at the hit morning show, and when it comes to its guests, the host isn't afraid to include even her exes, or her exes' current partners either!

The star has already had ex-boyfriend Justin Long on her show, for the premiere of season three back in September of 2022. The two dated on and off from 2007 to 2010, and at the time gushed and reminisced over their time together, maintaining their now platonic love for each other.

Now, Drew has extended the invite for her show to Kate Bosworth, who Justin has been engaged to since March of this year. Not only did the actress reiterate how much love Justin still has for Drew, the two praised each other, and opened up about the importance of celebrating one's exes.

Speaking together on the talk show on May 11, Drew got right into it, telling the audience: "We have a very important person in common, my very dear old friend Justin Long, boyfriend, a dear friend," endearingly adding: "He and Kate have found each other in this world and become this incredibly joyous, bonded, real deal… like the ultimate couple you root for, period."

It's the time in your life where you're just like, 'I wanna feel, I wanna do everything,' you know, just be a part of the adventure in a wild way, which is so much fun. And he just loves you so much."

As audiences applauded their openness with each other, the two maintained the importance of celebrating each other's past partners, especially as women.

Drew said: "We as women, actually, have an opportunity, have a choice, of how we can navigate our partners that we're currently with with confidence, and blessing, and a sharing goodness that makes all women look good."

Kate concurred: "I feel like the love, to me, like the heart can expand, you what I mean? I feel like if you really lean into the expansiveness of love, and that includes friendships, it's only for the better.

"Anytime I've closed my heart down because of ego, it hasn't made me feel good and I want to move to the warmth, I want to stay in the warmth," she concluded.
