It’s been nearly 16 years since Cameron Diaz first starred in Charlie’s Angels with Drew Barrymore, but the besties still remain right by each other’s side.

Diaz, 43, opened up to Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM Radio show on Tuesday while promoting her new tome The Longevity Book and said “of course” she reached out to Barrymore, 41, who is dealing with her recent split from husband Will Kopelman.

“Everybody pulls the wagons around, you know, our friends, whoever needs us at whatever point in time, even if it’s like something that the public doesn’t know about,” Diaz explains. “Internally we’re all going like, ‘Okay, who needs us now?'”

In Diaz’s new book, she writes about the benefits of aging, which she says has helped strengthen her relationships with her girlfriends in Hollywood.

“We’ve been in this industry for a really long time together and that’s a feat. To have people that you’ve known for that long – those are real relationships – it’s real friendships, we’ve gone through a lot in life together,” she says in the interview, which airs Friday at 8:00 am ET. “As you get older you start to lose people in your life and when you lose people in your life you have less of a purpose so it’s really, really important to stay engaged.”

Barrymore also showed her support for Diaz by posting a photo of herself holding up the new book on Tuesday saying, “I am so proud of my dearest girlfriend. She is smart! Kind! Fun! And now has her second book available with all her knowledge and passion! #longevitybook @camerondiaz get yours today.”

One thing her and best pals like Gwyneth Paltrow and Barrymore do together?

The classic girls’ night out.

“We’re like, ‘Ok, we need a girls night or a girls day or a getaway’ and everybody’s like ‘yes!'” says Diaz, “We find a date and everybody makes it happen because we know how important it is to stay connected.”
