Jason Segel Lost Weight, But Only For A Role

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 Us Weekly. “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!
