In his new film Jeff Who Lives At Home, Jason Segel plays a thirtysomething named Jeff who lives at home (shocker!). He resides in his mother’s basement to be precise, where he exists as an emotionally stunted “man-child” who lounges his life away staring off into space. But if you think that this is pretty much a documentary on Jason’s day-to-day life, think again. The dude’s got too much stuff to do!
“I think those character are more of a reflection of who I was in my early twenties,” the surprisingly serious funny man admitted to VH1 News. “I work too hard to really indulge in that anymore. I think I did four movies last year, and I wrote two of them. I don’t really have time to screw around anymore.” That’s right, he’s busting his hump to bring us hilariously heartwarming comedies…with a dose of nudity thrown in for good measure. “[A] present for the ladies,” he says.
Co-star Judy Greer, on the other hand, isn’t above the odd childish trait every now and then. Just don’t try and get her to talk about it!
“No comment! That’s totally secret times!” she laughed when we asked. But after some gentle prodding she started to spill on her inner immaturities. “A major one I can talk about is that I hate doing dishes. I will let them pile up and pile up and pile up. If I lived at home, I would never do a dish.” But shhh, don’t tell anyone! Secret times…
