Drew Barrymore likes "easy" relationships.

The 'Going the Distance' actress who is believed to be dating her co-star Justin Long admits she used to crave being in "crazy love", but has become attracted to relaxed partners as and romances as she has grown older.

The 35-year-old star said: "When you're young you just want to be in love. I call it crazy love, because you just want to have fun and youre not thinking about the future or kids. You just want to have a good time with that person.

Then, as you get older, even children aside, you just think, 'God, I actually like when it's easy, and I want these attributes from this person. I need these kinds of systems in place to feel calm."

The blonde actress admits she is also attracted to people who keep their word and don't lie to her.

Asked what type of man she goes for, she said: "Someone who, when they say they are going to do something, does it. I really, really am attracted to any person, personally or professionally, who keeps their word."
