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!
