Michelle Williams and Jason Segel Would Be Awesome to Double Date With

When it comes to celebrity pairings, there hasn’t been much inspiring news lately. Some of them are getting divorced (Heidi Klum and Seal; Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli). Some are getting married (Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt … someday). Some are just pathetic (Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart; Ashton Kutcher and anyone).

Fortunately, there is one shining example of a celeb couple we can get excited about: Michelle Williams and Jason Segel. So excited that we'd love to get a little closer.


Jason and Michelle seem like nice, normal people. They’re together because they actually want to be, not because they’re trying to keep their names in the press (talkin’ to you, Kim and Kanye). So far as I know, neither of them broke anyone’s heart to pair up (hello, Jen and Justin).

Because of all that, I could totally picture going on a double date with them. It would be convenient, too, since Michelle lives near me in Brooklyn. We could all meet up on Smith Street, where the restaurants are. There’s a great Mexican place there with outdoor seating. I can see it now ...

First, we’d unwind with a round of sangria. Then we’d order some of the glorious guacamole. I’d tell Michelle how much I loved her performance in Brokeback Mountain. Wait, no, I wouldn’t say that because it might remind her of Heath Ledger, the father of her daughter Matilda, who died of a prescription drug overdose.

Okay, instead I’d tell her how much I admired her performance in Blue Valentine. I’d ask what it was like to work with uber-hottie Ryan Gosling. Wait ... would that make Jason jealous? Because I'd heard Ryan and Michelle had a thing during that movie. I probably shouldn't mention Ryan or Blue Valentine.

So then, I guess I'd just order another round of sangria, because I wouldn’t know what to say. And for the record, my date would be totally unhelpful because he doesn't even know who Jason and Michelle are!

Wait! I could ask Jason to sing a little bit of his vampire musical from Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Or would he not want to look silly in front of Michelle? They just started dating, after all.

Hm. I think that's when I’d ask for the check. Big day tomorrow, all that. But Michelle and Jason, you're still the cutest.

What celebrity couple would you most like to double date with? What would you talk about?
