I know I am very late to the “My Crush” game, but I have just received some very significant news: Jason Segel is single. I am bummed that he and Michelle Williams didn’t work out because she is exceptionally lovely and they made an adorable couple. Nevertheless, it allowed to daydream briefly about what it would be like if Mr. Segel were to randomly
For the record, I am a very sane person who fully realizes she will never date a celebrity. I am realistic — well, pessimistic, but they’re practically the same thing — and have no genuine expectations to somehow pursue a famous person and have him or her suddenly want to bang and/or love me forevs. I like being a non-celebrity. I like not having a lot of people pay attention to me. I like it, and it will probably stay that way regardless of whether I like it, anyway.
I have the fattest crush on Jason Segel. I have since I watched Freaks & Geeks as a kid and it has sustained itself steadily into my adulthood. I recall seeing him as stoner “freak” Nick Andopolis and wondering if he was really that awkward in real life, and if he was, maybe he and I could be friends because I was extremely awkward. (Actually, I still am, but shhhh.) I found his comfortable weirdness so attractive — it’s a actually trait that is still incredibly appealing to me in a companion, as I have always been told by people I date that I am very peculiar, but they seemed to like it decently enough and I feel like I work best with similar folks.
His stardom rise was a bit slow, but not in a bad way. More in that way that Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s career was a bit slow because he chose roles wisely, thereby ensuring he could avoid the deal of Shane West/Chad Michael Murray/other former hotties you literally never hear about nowadays after their quick trip to Celebrity Island.
Oh, and he did full-frontal nudity in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. And I liked it.
And then…then came The Muppets.
