Justin Long is said to have pulled out of his ex Drew Barrymore‘s feature directorial debut Whip It.

The actor was due to start filming the roller derby comedy on Monday but insiders say he isn’t ready to see her.

‘He couldn’t stand working with her and not being with her,’ an insider reveals.

‘He’s too upset. She dumped him. She was hot and cold. One minute she was in love with him and the next she wanted to break up with him.’

Chris Miller, a rep for Flower Films, Drew’s production company with partner Nancy Juvonen, declined to comment.

‘It’s bordering on his personal life,’ he tells E! Online. ‘We never comment on cast.’

Drew, 33, ended her relationship with Justin, 30, 2 weeks ago after 9 months together.

Ellen Page, 21, Juliette Lewis, 35, and Marcia Gay Harden, 38, are also starring in Whip It.
