Are Michelle Williams and Jason Segel Still in Love?

A couple of months ago, back in April, we heard quite a bit about the budding relationship between Michelle Williams and Jason Segel. There was the time that Jason played with Michelle’s daughter, Matilda, and the time that Jason put stickers of Michelle on his phone, and the time that Jason said that the two of them “would just very much like to be happy.” We heard one story right at the beginning of May about how Michelle’s daughter loves Jason, but ever since then, I haven’t heard anything. I sort of forgot that they were dating, as sad as that makes me to admit.

So what’s the deal? Are they still dating? Did they have a quiet break up? Did they elope?

From Us Weekly:

Michelle Williams and Jason Segel are still going strong!

After Us Weekly broke the news of their romance in March, the unlikely pair kept a low-profile while Segel promoted The Five-Year Engagement in Europe and Williams prepped for her Take This Waltz press tour. But on June 19, witnesses saw the couple looking “very lovey-dovey” at Broadway’s One Man, Two GuvnorsThe New York Post‘s Page Six reports. Williams, 31, looked “so pretty” in white, while Segel, 32, wore “a suit.”

The couple stepped out to support James Corden, 33, Segel’s costar in 2010’s Gulliver’s Travels. “Jason loved the play,” a Segel source tells Us. “It was definitely his sense of humor.”

According to the source, Williams and Segel “are totally in love. Jason is obsessed with Michelle.” What’s more, he’s become somewhat of a father figure to Williams’ daughter Matilda, 6 (with her late ex, HeathLedger). “He’s been doing all sorts of ‘dad stuff’ with her, like drawing and playing music.”

Friends for years via mutual pal Busy Philipps, 32, Segel has only spoken publicly about Williams once, during an April interview with Extra. “I think we would just very much like to be happy,” he said. “That’s all I’m going to say about it.”

Man, this is just the thing I needed to hear after being subjected to that awful Octomom video I showed you earlier. True love does exist, you guys. Except I wish that source hadn’t used the word “obsessed” when describing Jason’s feelings for Michelle. That gives me a funny feeling that I’d rather not have when it comes to one of my new favorite Hollywood couples, you know?

  • I love them both, but for some reason the idea of them as a couple bores me. I usually love news about celebrity couples, but these two…I couldn’t care less. It’s weird, considering how awesome they are, right?

  • I wish they’d used “besotted” instead of “obsessed”, it would have been a lot nicer.
