You Need To Read The Email That Jason Segel’s Mom Sent Out After Seeing Him Naked In A Movie
Things that stress me out: accidentally muploading a naked photo of myself to the internet, butt dialing people I'm trash talking and getting stuck in an elevator with Jason Segel's mother and not being able to find any common ground. While I can't do anything about the first two, I can now rest assured that the third is no longer an issue. Why? Because Jason Segel's mom and I now have something in common — we've both seen Jason Segel naked. Wooohoooooo!
In a recent Vanity Fair interview, Jason Segel talked about his mother's reaction to seeing him naked in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. At first she was like, “my eyes, my eyes!” But then she was like, “it's art, it's art!” Or something like that. You can read his actual quote below.
“He did not warn his mother that he appeared fully naked in the 2008 breakup comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which he wrote, before she saw the film. Her reaction: “She cried,” he recalls. She then sent out a mass e-mail to family members with the following warning: “I would like to inform you all that Jason has chosen to do full-frontal nudity, however, it is not gratuitous and is essential to the plot.”
Gosh, do you love her or do you loooooooove her! Personally, I loooooooove her. While I have no immediate plans to take off my clothes on film, I can only hope that my mother would have the same reaction. Even if it's not as much a blockbuster film as it is accidental mupload of me dancing around naked in my room to One Direction. Which happened once. And then once more. And then several times more. Gosh darn those stupid boy-men make catchy music.
