This star of How I Met Your Mother used to be everywhere … until he wasn’t, But was it just a series of random events that resulted in the distance between the funnyman and Hollywood? Here’S why you don’t hear from Jason, Segel anymore “. This is my nightmare. .” Segel has quite the dating history having been linked to some of Tinseltown’s shiniest actresses, like Lindsay Lohan Chlo Sevigny Drew Barrymore and Linda Cardellini to name a few, But per the Daily Mail. Segel’S last high-profile relationship ended in 2013, when Michelle Williams quote: “ wasn’t ready to commit .” “ Oooh, that’s a tough one .” Since then, Segel has seemingly sworn off famous girlfriends and as of September 2019, he’s been dating photographer Alexis Mixter. Not much is known about Mixter, but in a 2017 Instagram post she gushed about her man on their anniversary writing “. It has been the absolute best four years of my lifeThank you for having my back for loving me in a way I never dreamed possible and making me laugh while encouraging me to dream .” Following his split from Williams. In early 2013 Radar Online reported Segel entered rehab in a quote: “ desperate bid to win his battle with booze .” Segel had previously often been photographed outside L.A
Nightclubs and he was once caught on camera, seemingly intoxicated serenading a fan in 2011 “, The more people think you’re, really great, the bigger the fear of being a fraud is .”, While taking on the role of late author, David Foster, Wallace, who also suffered from alcoholism. Segel tapped into his own experiences for his performance. In The End of the Tour He told NPR “, I felt like ,’Oh. Thank you, God. Here’S somebody else who’s willing to talk about these things. I was very hopeful. My experience wasn’t unique. I think most people [ feel that ] when they’re, going through a hard time, .” “, We all feel the same way And there is sort of a nagging sense that maybe we’re not enough or that something is wrong. .” Segel’s 2014 comedy Sex Tape was supposed to be a blockbuster, but it bombed hard with both box offices and critics.
“, This is the last copy of your stupid tape. Alright, Can’t have this s — out there .” The flop was particularly bad for Segel because he not only starred in the movie. He was also a co-writer on the script, With a 17 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. One reviewer griped “: It’s strange to watch a comedy full of talented people that does not work from the opening scene. It’S like eating food and not tasting anything .” “ That got a lot less hot, real, quick, didn’t it ?”, Even though the movie failed as a whole. Critics didn’t blame Segel nor his co-star Cameron, Diaz. The Village Voice noted “ [, It’s ] warmer and more amusing than its ads would lead one to believe. In fact, it’s almost good enough, leaning a little too hard on the innate likability of stars, Cameron, Diaz and Jason Segel .”. Unfortunately, they weren’t likable enough to sell tickets.
Although Segel was busy throughout How I Met Your Mother simultaneously, writing and starring in flicks, like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Five-Year Engagement after the show wrapped he realized the fast pace, wasn’t getting him to the finish line any time soon. “ It’s sorta like when you’re on a treadmill, and you tell yourself ,’, I’m gon na run five miles today, .’ And now it’s forever miles, .” “! When was the last time you were on a treadmill ?” In 2015, he said on Variety’s “ Actors on Actors, ,” “. I need to find a model that is sustainable where I’m not constantly feeling like. I have to arrived yet or I’m in a state of waiting. For this thing to happen. .” Segel began seeking out material that reportedly quote: “ moved him ,”, which resulted in a noticeable lull in his career.
The actor also said goodbye to Los Angeles and moved to Ojai California. He told Jimmy Fallon in 2015 “. I moved out of L.A. a little while ago and I moved to like a small town. That’S very healthy. They almost shame you into being healthy, .”. The new digs may have provided him some much-needed distance from Hollywood nightlife, but its accessibility to people kept him from becoming a full-on recluse. He told the New York Times “, It’s an impulse. I’Ve always had, which is I’m going to move to the mountains and no one’s ever going to see me again. I found the healthy version of that .”. These days, Segel keeps busy by writing young adult novels. According to Entertainment, Weekly Segel co-wrote, the New York Times, bestseller Nightmares with Kristen Miller, as well as the young adult trilogy Otherworlds
While the actor has been writing since his twenties Segel claims director Judd Apatow once told him “, What he said to me actually is ,’You’re kind of a weird guy. The only way you’re gon na make it is, if you write .”’ In additional to novels Deadline, reported that Segel created the 10-episode anthology series Dispatches From Elsewhere for AMC As of September 2019.
