Michelle Williams and Jason Segel
Jason Segel Michelle Williams: it’s official. The 32-year-old actor was willing to open about his new romance with the 31-year-old actress.
Asked by Extra about his relationship with the Oscar nominated actress, the actor talked about them for the first time. “I think we would just very much like to be happy. That’s all I’m going to say about it”, he said.
Segel was joined by his ’5 Year Engagement’ costar Emily Blunt at the time when he gave the interview. Blunt felt like adding that “He’s a man-boy! He used to be a boy-boy and now he’s a man-boy”. To which, Segel joked: “I think I might even be becoming a man-man… potentially!”
According to source close to the couple, Segel “has been trying to be more of a grown-up lately” to show his “commitment” to Williams. “He is taking care of himself more, exercising, eating right and dressing better. Basically, not acting like a frat boy anymore”, the source explained.
The two started dating a few months ago and they were seen acting affectionately in public a few times proving they were going seriously about their relationship. They were introduced to each other by mutual friend Busy Philips.
Last week, Segel was seen holding his iPhone which had photos of Williams taped on its back along with the message “I Love You”. Previously, one of the actress’ pals revealed that she confessed her love for Segel.
