Drew Barrymore gushes about Justin Long

Drew Barrymore and Justin LongHollywood star Drew Barrymore gushed about her love for boyfriend Justin Long when she appeared on Oprah Winfrey's US chat show.

The 33-year-old actress grinned as she called the actor her "best friend" and said they were having an "excellent time" together.

"She's beautiful and funny and the most compassionate person I've ever met," the Dodgeball star added about his girlfriend.

Long took his place in the audience as Drew sat on Oprah's sofa for Monday's show in the US.

The giggling actress revealed that they had both used hotel shampoo when the chat show host told her she smelled nice. "At some point you decide who you want to be and the person you want to become, and when you grow up you make changes and different choices in your life," she said about her relationship with Long, 29. "This relationship is great - it's healthy and it's protective and supportive and it's full of humour and a lot of fun.

"All our friends get along great, which is awesome, because we travel together.

"We're having an excellent time, we're very, very fortunate."

Drew appeared on the Oprah show to make a surprise $1 million donation to the United Nations' World Food Programme, which helps feed children.

The Charlie's Angels star, a UN ambassador, was touched by the kids' plight after she traveled to Kenya last spring.

"Food is the basis for everything," she explained. "I didn't understand that in order to take the AIDS vaccination medicine you have to have the food in order for your system to handle the medicine."

The current Vogue covergirl presented a huge cheque to WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran, to huge cheers from Oprah Winfrey's audience.

Drew's best friend Cameron Diaz even phoned into the show to say how proud she was of her pal. "I've been listening to the show and I'm chocked up because I'm so proud of Drew, I'm so proud of the information she's giving the world," she said.

"It's unprecedented the point we're at in the world right now, learning how children are living in the world - it's devastating and the truth that has been spoken there is so important for people to hear.

"I'm so proud of you Drew for doing this and informing people."

"That's my best friend!" Drew squealed, revealing that she and Cameron call each other "Poo".
