London: Actor Justin Long has revealed that he likes the feisty nature of his girlfriend Drew Barrymore.

"I like feistiness in a woman - someone who knows who they are. It comes very naturally to Drew! She`s a contradiction: she can be tough, hang with the guys and throw punches, but then put on a dress and shoes and love `Sex and the City`. A sense of humor goes a long way, too. It`s a tall order," news daily quoted him as saying.

The "Going Distance" star has also revealed he and Drew keep the romance alive in their unorthodox relationship by writing each other love letters when they are separated by work commitments.

"I`m never in one place for more than seven months, so having a relationship means spending time apart. I hate the phone. If you`re speaking too much it becomes mundane. Letters are so romantic. They require patience and are unique, thoughtful extensions of yourself. Drew is an amazing letter-writer," he added.
