Jason Segel was a nobody to Michelle Williams before they met

He’s cute, funny, and super tall, but when his girlfriend, Michelle Williams, first laid eyes on Jason Segel, she had no idea who he was.

“I didn’t actually realize who he was before I started dating him,” Williams told InStyle Magazine. “I mean, I saw the Muppets movie, and I thought, ‘Oh, that’s cute,’ but the truth is I didn’t realize he made a lot of very popular, funny movies or was on a TV show.”

Segel has made his rounds throughout Hollywood, starring in “The Muppets,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “How I Met Your Mother,” but those stints were still not impressive enough to leave an impression with Williams, whose been his girlfriend since March 2012.
