“I think we would just very much like to be happy. That’s all I’m going to say about it. … I think I might even be becoming a man-man … potentially!”

—What Jason Segel had to say during a joint interview with co-star Emily Blunt on dating Michelle Williams and his romantic “evolution.”

Sources close to Jason and Michelle also spilled to Us Magazine about just how serious the relationship is becoming:

… Insiders told Us that Segel “has been trying to be more of a grown-up lately” to show his “commitment” to Williams, single mom to daughter Matilda. “He is taking care of himself more, exercising, eating right and dressing better. Basically, not acting like a frat boy anymore.”

Friends for years via mutual pal Busy Philips, the couple’s relationship “kind of happened overnight!” another pal marveled.

I want this to work out—I really and truly do. And honestly, I didn’t even know that Jason had a reputation for being a frat boy. I know that pretty much all men go through their phases, but Jason is thirty-two years old, and he’s had a pretty serious acting career for a minute now. Yeah, he played roles in movies like Dead Man on Campus, Slackers, and SLC Punk!, and had roles like “Watermelon guy,” Smelly Bob,” and “Frat Boy,” but I never for a second pegged him as a watermelon-toting, smelly frat douche that had a wreck of an apartment somewhere seedy, you know? He always kind of struck me as having his shit together, even though he did look like this the other day:

No, I can definitely see that Jason is taking this relationship with Michelle Williams so seriously that he’s willing to clean up his act—and his ass. And I think that’s great, because I definitely love these two together pretty hard. Now if boyfriend can continue to shower on the regular and maybe move out of his mom’s basement (I’m totally kidding; I have no idea if he lives in her basement—he could very well have a cozy little abode in her attic or something), then there’s definitely some progress we’re going to see in action, and isn’t that fun?
