‘When we used to talk and Facetime I was always like, “You know I’ve really grown up Justin.” I always wanted to prove to you what a different person I was then when we dated.’

Justin replied: ‘You were the best. That’s what we did, we laughed so much, like that was so much a part of our connection was that we love funny people, we enjoy laughing at all times.

‘I love that we maintained our love because I know for my end it will never go away. I love you always. I am glad that we are able to still have that. I mean that. I’ll always love you.’

Drew added: ‘We had so much fun but we were more hedonistic. A little more immature. We would get together, we would breakup. It was chaos, it was hella-fun.’

Gushing over her ex’s new relationship, Drew said: ‘I couldn’t be happier for you. It’s all I want in life is your success and happiness.

It’s true and I’m so happy that you are in this also amazing relationship. I’m just so happy because you deserve to be happy. I’m so thrilled for you.’

Drew has previously had plenty of positive reflections on her time with Justin.

In July, she said on her talk show: ‘I didn’t get why we were ever an interesting couple. That didn’t make any sense to me. Like, who cares? We’re not exciting.’

The former couple met while playing long-distance lovers on the set of the 2010 romantic comedy Going The Distance.

Drew added: ‘We’re not the first people to meet on the set and have a romance. I was very much in love with Justin.

‘He is funny. The sharpest wit. You want to know why he gets all the ladies? Well, there’s a few reasons, but he’s brilliant. He’ll just knock your socks off with laughter.’
