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.

    His mama seems like good people. I’m totally excited to meet the family when Jason and I start dating.

    This is, sadly, something I wonder about a lot- whether celebs parents watch their nudes scenes. Now I know the answer for at least one. Only like, 1,742,856 to go.

      Same! I’ve heard people on HBO/Showtime shows say that they have safe-for-work cuts made for their families. Like I’m cool with my body (most days), but nowhere near that cool.

      That’s a good idea. Because I can’t imagine being an actor and having a great role but not wanting my dad to see it because my naked tits are part of the deal.

    I have 3 sons, all in their 20′s now but years ago, an older lady I knew said she accidentally walked in on her adult son naked and that I should take great care to never let that happen…apparently it’s quite traumatic to see that little willy you once knew all grown up.
