Jason Segel Explains Weight Loss, Discusses End of How I Met Your Mother
Jason Segel looked healthy and handsome during the CW, CBS and Showtime's Summer TCA Party in L.A. on Monday, July 30. The clean-shaven actor, 33, looked trim in a gray suit while posing for photographers on the red carpet. According to Segel, he's been getting in shape for his next movie, Sex Tape, costarring Cameron Diaz.
"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."
In the meantime, Segel is focused on the ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother (premiering Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS). "My favorite moments have just been watching my castmates grow up. We have been together for a decade now and a lot of life stuff has gone on for everybody," the star said. "It's like a real family. It's the longest I've known any group of people besides my family."
Segel wants to embrace the moment instead of worrying about the next phase of his career. "I'm just keeping myself busy," he told Us. "I'm not thinking too much about the future."
