Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres to spare no punches.

On an upcoming Feb. 2 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host corners Justin Long on his ex-girlfriend – and He's Just Not That Into You costar – Drew Barrymore.

"Is that hard?" DeGeneres, 51, asks Long, 30. "Now you're on a press tour with someone you were in a movie with, in a relationship with and now you're seeing each other. And if it's not I've just made it more awkward."

Long gamely replies, "Up until this point it's been not awkward at all."

The actor credits Barrymore, 33, with their continuing friendship. "She's effortlessly charming and easy to be around," he says. "She has this amazing ability to make anyone feel like at ease."

The friendly exes were recently spotted slow-dancing and hugging at L.A. lounge h.wood following a He's Just Not That Into You press junket.
