And the good ones, they're nice to hear but I don't really internalisethem

Justin Long is 'GOING the DISTANCE' to avoid reading movie reviews from now on - because harsh critics' comments have destroyed his self-confidence.

The actor's romantic comedy with onoff girlfriend Drew Barrymore failed to set the U.S. box office alight when it was released earlier this month (Sep10) - and the couple's performance has been torn apart by reviewers.

He says, "It's the first time I've ever had that level of investment ina movie so it's been strange. It didn't do great at the box office, which has been a little disappointing".

And Long admits harsh comments about the project have left him feeling insecure "I made a mistake of reading reviews. People always say don't read reviews and I said, 'Ah well, I'll read a couple!' I read literally Ithink every single review, and I learned a very valuable lesson, which is never, never do that. It doesn't help at all. "And the good ones, they're nice to hear but I don't really internalisethem.

It's the bad ones (I remember)".
