I know, I know, like we actually needed any more proof that Michelle Williams and Jason Segel are dating after those photos Sarah showed you yesterday of those two beautiful lovebirds holding hands and being the most adorable thing that ever happened. But now that we know this couple actually exists, I’m pretty certain that it’s not going to take much at all for us to tell you guys about them. It’ll be like “Michelle and Jason went to dinner? Type it up!” and “BREAKING: Jason Segel and Michelle Williams Eskimo Kiss!” So prepare to get bombarded with the precious, that’s all I’m saying.
Ok, and now here’s where I show you the additional evidence, all right? Brace yourselves, because it’s really, really sweet:
Jason Segel and Michelle Williams certainly would make a hip, hot couple.
Earlier this month the How I Met Your Mother star asked his Twitter followers “a totally hypothetical question” to find out, “If I fell in love would you guys be happy?” (He’s since deleted the tweet.)
His followers answered with a resounding yes. “We don’t even know each other and you guys want me to be happy,” he tweeted, and has also since deleted. “I’m not being sarcastic at all when I say that actually means a lot.”
So was Jason talking about the My Week With Marilyn star?
Michelle’s rep had “no comment” on the actress’ rumored relationship, but pictures snapped by Us Weekly sure look lovey-dovey to us!
Oh my gosh. “If I fell in love, would you guys be happy?” Is that a real thing that happened, or are they just trying to play with our hearts now? Sarah said it, many of you guys said it, and now I get the chance to say it: IS THIS THE CUTEST COUPLE EVER OR WHAT?

I’m so glad this is a true thing. So glad. Because now Michelle Williams has a nice man in her life who can take her to the places she deserves to go, and frankly, Matilda deserves to have a good, stable father figure in her life, too. The above and below photos are exclusive to Us magazine, who has even more details about the new couple’s shacking-up-ness.
The demure three-time Oscar nominee, 31, has fallen for longtime pal Jason Segel, a source confirms exclusively to Us Weekly. “They are smitten and very serious,” the source says of the My Week With Marilyn star and Segel, 32. (The actress split from Heath Ledger five months before his death in 2008.)
The unexpected new couple was photographed taking a romantic stroll after a meal at Frankie’s Spuntino in Brooklyn March 24. “He put his arm around her and made her laugh as they walked,” says a witness. “[They] seemed very relaxed.”
The next day, How I Met Your Mother star Segel was snapped bonding with Matilda, Williams’ 6-year-old daughter, as she went for a ride on her scooter.
Friends for years through Williams’ BFF and Segel’s Freaks and Geeks costar Busy Philipps, their relationship only recently turned romantic.
They dined (and giggled) at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont Feb. 27, and then shared supper at West Hollywood’s Comme Ca March 16.
Although they live on different coasts, the Brooklyn-based actress and L.A. denizen are “trying to make it work,” the source says. “She hasn’t been this happy in a long time.”
So nice, right? Isn’t it nice that we, despite all of the celebrity-related f-ckery that surrounds us on a daily basis, can moon over a nice, nice couple? Because they’re nice, guys. They’re really, really nice. I haven’t been this excited about a celebrity pairing in I don’t know how long, and it’s A NICE THING, let me tell you. (These guys are really nice together, I guess that’s the gist of what I’m saying, if you’re picking up what I’m laying down.)

Oh. My God. I love this. I love this! Lainey Gossip has got the exclusive gossip that Michelle Williams and Jason Segel might be doing things together – and maybe even each other! Do you NOT love this? How could you not love this? Check out the news:
Michelle Williams and Jason Segel looked like they were on a date last week at Chateau Marmont. At first they were there with Busy Phillips. Busy left early. Michelle and Jason stayed on their own for a few hours after. She was in great spirits. He made her laugh a lot. They drank several glasses of wine, she chained off several cigarettes, seemed very relaxed, and happy.
He paid at around 1:30am and was convincing her to stay out. She kept protesting like it was too late and he was all – what? This is early! And after giggling together, she seemed to agree. The two exited together through the side …
Apparently Jason lives right behind the hotel. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Wow. Like I said, I just love it! I really never get excited like this over a coupling, but this? It’s just awesome. I want these two to be together forever, and Jason could be little Matilda’s doting little stepdad and take her and her dollies for ice cream dates, and they could have more children and take them for pizza in quaint towns in the summertime and they could vacation at quiet mountain resorts and raise their children under the radar and have grandbabies and grow old together and die just like Allie and Noah did in The Notebook? Wouldn’t that be just GREAT? I AM LOVING THIS SO HARD.
Oh, and I hope it’s all true, too, you know. I mean, obviously.

Really, I want to talk about Michelle Williams‘ daughter, Matilda, for a minute, but I guess we can talk about Michele specifically for a minute too, if you’d like. But save it, ok? I really want to talk about Matilda right now.
She looks so much like her father, doesn’t she? I feel like you could find some pictures of Heath Ledger as a child, sketch in some longer hair, and you could have little Matilda here. Consider my mind blown, friends, and also, consider me a little sad. Could you even imagine how adorable it would be to see Heath Ledger today, playing with his tiny little lookalike, having a ball? Ugh. Pardon me for being entirely too obvious, but death sucks, huh?
To lighten up the mood a little bit, let’s discuss the fashion of a six-year-old, all right? What happened to her awesome red pants after Michelle picked her up? Where do you think I can find a sweater like hers? Is it weird that I’m coveting a six-year-old’s sweater? Let’s talk about the issues!

Are you looking, Lindsay Lohan? This is how you do Marilyn Monroe. THIS.
But let me preface this interview by saying that it’s not pretty. Or rather, Michelle Williams is either the tortured, overly-fragile spectre of a human being that she appears to pretty much everyone, or she’s a damned fine actress. This intro, for example:
I meet with Michelle Williams on three days in two different cities over a bit more than a week. Much does not go as either of us expects. On the first day, we mainly talk about her youth, and I make her cry. On the second, we mainly talk about her becoming Marilyn Monroe. This is the only dry-eyed meeting. (Unless—quite possible—I was too insensitive to notice.) On the third, we mainly talk about her life with, and without, Heath Ledger. At the end of the third day, we walk around a park in the dark. At the end of the second day, we tidy up the leftovers of her daughter’s birthday cupcakes. At the end of the first day, she leaves in tears, her parting words: “That was really awful.”
So, OK. She’s got reason to be emotional. The interviewer brings up the touchy subject of Heath Ledger (of course) while still trying to maintain a sex kitten vibe to both the photo shoot and the interview. I mean, I might be a little thrown, too.
From GQ, Michelle Williams on embracing the “darkness”:
“Maybe when I was in my early twenties and my late teens, I was more prone to sitting in it or lacerating myself with it. Now I want to move out of it. I have a daughter. I want a happy life.”
On admitting that she had to go into therapy after her parents saw her nude in a play:

How darling is this? I know it’s not all cleavage-heaving and body-baring, but Michelle could probably wear a full-length, high-necked burlap bag and she’d still rock the fiber out of it. Plus, her hands. I’ve got this hand fascination, and I totally make snap judgments about people based on what their hands look like, and I just cannot stop staring at hers. She’s got such COOL HANDS. NEAT hands. Very artistic-looking hands.
Other good, honorable mentions include The Help‘s breakout star, Viola Davis who is like a strong goddess in that Grecian-inspired dress, Lea Michele (with the exception of that FACE GOOD GOD IN HEAVEN ACK PUT IT AWAY), Zooey Deschanel, who also has that unbelievable cute factor much like Michelle Williams does, and when is she going to start hooking up with Joseph Gordon-Levitt anyhow, huh?, and last, but certainly not least, Katharine McPhee. I know, I don’t know what the hell she was doing there anyway, but it looks like she left her Steve Maddens home in lieu of a classy getup that resulted in … well, classiness. Ness.
Who takes the best?
