"Every time I'm on the red carpet and they ask,'Who's the mother going to be?' Segel explained to Jimmy Fallon, "I always say Hillary Clinton as a joke."

But Segel's comments got back to the Secretary of State, 64. "I got a letter in the mail that said, 'I appreciate your request, but I must say I'm very busy doing politics. But if the opportunity ever arises, I would be happy to do something together. [Signed] Hillary Clinton.' "
