Michelle just did an interview with Canada’s Flare magazine, where she talked about relationships, dating, not sex with Jason Segel, not Heath Ledger’s death, not a ‘Dawson’s Creek’ reunion, and not really anything of much importance aside from that movie she’s doing, ‘Take This Waltz’. Here’s Michelle on why she’s not talking about Jason Segel, Heath Ledger, or anything of much importance.
On keeping her personal life private:
“I need to keep my life very separate. I live and love and make decisions from a very comfortable and removed place. That’s how it works for me.”
“You deserve more than somebody who’s nice to you. I think that so often these days, niceness seems like it should be enough because it seems like such a rare quality, but when you get inside of it, you think, ‘Hmm.. I can be pretty nice to myself. What about these other things?’ Life is too short and too crappy to not try to get more of what you want.”
On her new movie:
“I thought about [Take This Waltz] as a coming of age story. Not in the pubescent way, but a girl on the verge of becoming a woman, that transition that you make in your late 20s or early 30s. She’s yet to experience a great kind of sadness. And I think that’s the thing that kind of plants her into adulthood.”
Well if that isn’t the blandest excerpt I’ve ever heard, then I don’t quite know what is. But hey. I guess not every interview can be a tear-jerking, emotionally-draining, uplifting-learn-this-lesson-the-hard-way kind of interview that most people prefer to read. Some just have to be generic, and that’s really all there is to it.
Also, ‘Take This Waltz’, if you don’t remember, is the movie where Michelle, Sarah Silverman, and some other chick appeared fully-frontally nude in a shower scene. You can check out the obviously-NSFW photos here because NUDITY.

And I know probably most of you do, since a lot of our search engine traffic comes from the nudie pics we just love to throw around like dollar bill-rain on seedy strippers.
The photos (which are obviously NSFW and after the jump) show Michelle Williams, Sarah Silverman, and some other well-endowed chick in some full-frontal, rather bushy nudity while they lather up and rinse in a community shower. The stills are from their movie, ‘Take This Waltz’, which we’ve talked about here on the site for just how generally sucky it looks.
Michelle has a cutesy little body and natural bazongas, and in all of the photos she keeps her arms raised up over her head—the international sign for “I was pregnant once and my tits have never been the same so I keep my arms up high to make ‘em less saggy looking” (believe me, I KNOW)—and Sarah’s tits are surprisingly nice, though the rest of her body looks like a grandmother’s, save for the fact that there’s nary a wrinkle in sight.
Jump in to see the full-frontals, and here’s a hint: click on the photo to enlarge it to epic proportions.

… Williams was willing to commit more fully to our questions about a possible Dawson’s Creek reunion — or, at least, she was open to the idea, once we asked her about Don’t Trust The B– In Apartment 23 and told her that James Van Der Beek was willing. “He has my e-mail!” she responded, laughing. “He has my home phone, and my cell phone, so we talk … ” And that means she’d do the show, if he called? “He could totally ask! I’ve always said, I’m totally up for reunion tours, reunion shows, so we can do that. I’ve always wanted, my best friend [Busy Philipps] is on Cougar Town, and we’ve always talked about wanting to go be on that show, too. It’s just timing, because of L.A. and New York, and it hasn’t happened.” Your move, Van Der Beek!
Wow! Wouldn’t this be awesome if it happened?
This’ll be the biggest thing that’s happened to James Van Der Beek since … since … since, I don’t know, that movie he did for SyFy, The Storm! Which I, incidentally, watched this past week, because I went DV-R crazy with crappy made-for-TV disaster movies because I love them!
This’ll be the best thing that’s happened to Katie Holmes since she found out that her husband Tom Cruise is actually a robot created by the Church of Scientology, and because he’s some kind of weird droid, in legal terms, this means her marriage is not legally binding! … Wait, you mean that didn’t happen yet? OK, sorry—jumping the gun a little bit here, but it’s just all the excitement, I swear.
Would you guys totally love a DC reunion or what?

Michelle Williams and Jason Segel had plenty to feel giddy about Wednesday night, as the new couple attended the premiere of his movie The Five-Year Engagement at the Tribeca Film Festival – and snuggled together at the afterparty.
They were affectionate throughout the night. As the movie ended, he gave her a little kiss on the cheek, as she took off and he stayed in New York’s Ziegfeld Theater to chat with friends and well-wishers.
They were practically inseparable at the afterparty in the Museum of Modern Art. Segel held Williams’s hand and took her around to tables, whispering in her ear. They looked very new and very happy. At one point, he pulled her behind a curtain and she came back out and pointed at him jokingly.
Williams, 31, left before Segel, 32 – she leaned in, kissed his cheek, said something quickly in his ear, rubbed his back and dipped out through the curtain.
So they’ve gone public, then, I guess, huh? I’m just nuts over these two. They seem like they’re definitely the real thing, and if Michelle is going as far as to appear in public with him—in front of both his and her peers—then there’s something serious, brewing, you mark my words.
I’d say give it another six to eight months, and we’ll be hearing about an engagement. Forget that there’s already floating around because Jason‘s talking like, oh, I don’t know, this about his new movie, The Five-Year Engagement:
“My plan is to get her to marry me as quickly as possible before she finds out who I really am,” he said with a laugh. “I’ll do it romantic, but I’ll do it like over a three-day weekend. We’ll meet on Friday, have our first date on Saturday, engaged on Sunday and married on Monday.”
Yes, this is what Jason had to say about his movie, and I’m completely sure that it had nothing at all to do with his current girlfriend. Six to eight months, guys. Jot it down.

“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!”
… 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?

Doesn’t this just fill your heart with so much happiness? Don’t you just smile your face off at the thought of this lovely couple? Admittedly, I spend a lot of time perusing celebrity gossip, and I’m also definitely one of those people who can’t help but smile when I see an old couple holding hands in the grocery store or a some lady loving on her baby or, uh, a dog or something, so I’m probably more likely to spend time squeeing over this whole thing than many people. But still, you have to find some sort of joy in this, right?
*On March 25, Michelle and Jason Segel had an early dinner in the Brooklyn restaurant Rucola. “Jason had his arm around her,” said a source. Four friends joined them for the meal, and Jason paid the check.
*A source close to Jason says that “romantically, this kind of happened overnight!”
*After Heath died, Michelle said she “felt like a walking open wound.” A source close to Ledger says, “She was caught up in a big tornado and she had a lot to recover from.”
*Michelle really likes Jason. A source close to Michelle says, “Jason is supersweet. He makes Michelle laugh and feel good about herself.” And Jason is good with Matilda too.
*Michelle is already telling friends that she “loves” Jason.
*Busy Phillips set them up. Busy talked up Jason to Michelle, then she set up a dinner between the three of them, and Busy left “conspicuously early.” After Busy left, Michelle and Jason sat there for hours drinking, talking and laughing.
*When Jason was in New York in March, he stayed with Michelle in her Brooklyn brownstone.
*Source: “Michelle doesn’t do flings. Every person she gets involved with is someone she can entertain the possibility of spending the rest of her life with.”
*Russell Brand once referred to Jason Segel (who apparently was/is a two-pack-a-day chain smoker) as “a falcon among gulls when it comes to womanizing.”
*Michelle finds Jason charming, romantic, funny and kind. Jason reportedly has “curbed” his bad habits – “He has made an effort to clean up his act… he’s been trying to be more of a grownup lately. He is taking care of himself more, exercising, eating right and dressing better. Basically, not acting like a frat boy anymore.”
*Jason thinks Michelle is “classy.” He was worried about introducing her to his friends because he doesn’t want anything to go wrong.
*She dated Spike Jonze from summer 2008 to late 2009. A source says, “When she met Spike, she was alone, sad and crying often.”
*At some point, Michelle seriously considering marrying a platonic friend – “They didn’t really have strong feelings for each other…it was so Matilda could have more stability and a father.”
*After that, Michelle began dating “a–holes who didn’t treat her right,” says an insider. One of those “a–holes,” according to the source, was Cary Fukunaga. They broke up, according to this pro-Michelle source, because Cary “didn’t want to step up and be a stepfather to Matilda. He was just looking for an unserious situation.”
*Michelle also hooked up with a cinematographer in Michigan (while she was working on Oz: The Great and Powerful) last year.
Well, I’m going to be smiling my face off for the rest of the evening. About the parts where Michelle and Jason love each other and are so good for each other, not about the parts where Michelle was sad and having troubles with romance. What about you?
