Well, this is a bit of a weird one. Katie Holmes and Jason Segel are apparently dating? Well, that’s what everyone was saying, anyway. This all stemmed from the fact that Katie filmed a guest appearance on How I Met Your Mother back in 2011, leading people to claim in 2014 that they’ve been dating on and off since?
It’s a pretty stupid claim, and no surprise that it seems to be entirely untrue:
“The story is completely untrue,” Holmes’ rep Leslie Sloane tells Us Weekly. “The two have not spoken since she appeared on How I Met Your Mother.”
Well, this is one denial I can get behind. I mean, this is the biggest reach I’ve seen in a long ass time.
Don’t forget that Katie was still married and Jason was with Michelle Williams (BEST COUPLE EVER) for a lot of that time. Not that people can’t and don’t have affairs, but you know.
If you want to know the plot of Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel‘s new movie, Sex Tape, it’s simple: a married couple realize a sex tape they made has gone missing and it’s been uploaded to “the cloud” so the entire movie is spent looking for it. It’s apparently really raunchy and hilarious (supposed to be, anyway) and that’s about it.
I dunno, looks pretty awful to me. What do you think?
Jason Segel has always come off as an incredibly likeable, down-to-earth dude. He’s kind of the everyman – not too overly built, handsome but not strikingly or intimidatingly so and just generally “cool”. Everyone has been noticing lately that he seems to have slimmed down quite a bit, but he’s told US Weekly that’s only because he is starring in a movie called Sex Tape with Cameron Diaz in the near future. Hm, wonder what that one’s going to be about!
“I’ve just been living healthy, exercising, eating right — no more midnight pizzas,” Segel told UsWeekly. “This time when I take my shirt off, I’ve made a promise to myself, it doesn’t have to be funny.”
According to Segel (who split with Michelle Williams earlier this year), “I took heat for Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where I was completely nude. But different characters require different body types.” Production on the raunchy comedy begins in September. “It is R-rated,” he teased, “and I’m not in shape for no reason.”
Ha! I don’t think he’s ever been particularly overweight or out of shape, but I like the fact that he’s not worried about coming off as super handsome or having the biggest six pack in Hollywood, because that would be incredibly boring. His pot belly is part of his charm! Leave him alone!
Jason Segel is pretty universally known to be pretty great, so it should be no surprise that he’s now conquering the world of children’s book writing with Nightmares!, a story about a group of small town kids who band together to overcome their fear of the monsters. Apparently this will be a series put together with co-author Kirsten Miller.
“I couldn’t be more excited that Nightmares! has found a home at Random House,” Segel said in a statement.
“Ultimately, it’s a story about learning that we can accomplish anything, as long as we are brave enough to try. These are the types of stories that always inspired me.”
Cute! Writing’s no new thing for Segel – after all, he’s already done The Five Year Engagement and The Muppets – but it is his first book. I wonder if Michelle Williams is gonna buy Matilda a copy.
Michelle Williams and Jason Segel broke up. They kept their relationship quiet and I think this break-up came as a shock to many, in the, “Whoa, they were together?” sense. Unless you read Evil Beet, that is. They’ve been together since March of 2012 and were seen together as recently as early January.
Michelle Williams is adorable, so it only stands to reason that her daughter Matilda – who she had with the late Heath Ledger – is also adorable. Michelle has always spent a lot of time with Matilda and taken her to movie sets wherever possible, and Oz, The Great and Powerful is no exception. Turns out, she’s pretty excited to see the film now because she knows what’s going to happen and wants to see it all come together on the big screen.
“She’s dying to see it. She’s very excited,” the Oz The Great and Powerful star, 32, told PEOPLE during its Wednesday premiere in Hollywood.
“[Director Sam Raimi] really welcomed her on set and he made a very kid-friendly space. She witnessed so much of it being made so she’s really excited to see it come together.”
An avid fan of the original The Wizard of Oz, the 7-year-old has been known to skip over the scarier scenes — “She runs out of the room when … the baboons start to fly,” says Williams — but promises to be brave for the newest flick.
“She said, ‘Mommy, don’t worry, I won’t be scared because I know how everything happens,” says the actress.
I always wonder what kids of celebrity parents must think about their careers. Most stars say that their kids don’t really “get it” and that to them, they’re just Mom or Dad, not such and such the Hollywood actress or whatever. I love this kid. I love that Jason Segelloves this kid. I love everything about this little makeshift family and I don’t know why but I don’t think it matters.
Probably my favorite celebrity couple in the history of celebrities coupling is Michelle Williams and Jason Segel. I’ve always adored them so, so much separately, and I never even imagined that these two magical souls could become one. But they have, and they still are. And that’s what this story is about.
That photo up there is of Michelle and Jason, along with their BFF, Busy Philipps, having fun in Cancun. Michelle is the pale girl who isn’t pregnant, if you needed help figuring that out. Michelle’s daughter was there with him, and they all had a really good time because, you know, it’s Cancun.
You guys love them too, right? After all, what’s not to love?
