Quick, does the term “fire log” make you feel turned on, centered, or both? It’s no secret that the names of sex positions are weirdly similar to those of yoga poses, increasing the odds that you and a fellow yogi will get to know each other a lot better after just one class. After reading up on The Joy of Sex, VH1′s Kate Spencer tasked Sex Tape stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel with determining whether a move is reserved for the yoga studio, or the bedroom. Read more…
Which PLL star had to get a restraining order? Will there be a celebrity guest appearance on Girls? Did you ever think you’d see the day that Game of Thrones and The Brady Bunch came together?
After nine seasons, How I Met Your Mother is coming to an end. Are you pissed? You should be! If it makes you feel any better, celebrity superfan Lindsay Lohan is furious. So much so, she simply can’t resist attacking Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan and the rest of the cast with a sledgehammer.
Listen up, famous people, we know fame and fortune can’t buy happiness, but we kinda count on you to be leading the good life so we can live it up through you. So when you start looking like you’re doing just the opposite, it hurts us too (you know, after we eat up all the headlines about your downfall). In the past week, two of our favorite leading men — Jason Segel and Jake Gyllenhaal — former porn star turned writer Jenna Jameson, rapper/comedian Donald Glover and a few others have us worried for them. Are they getting high or getting into character? Expressing themselves or calling for help? Let’s look a little more closely, shall we?
Celebrities like Heidi Klum, Jessica Alba and Olivia Munn may look like they live glamorous lives, but at the end of the day, they’ve got a few things in common with the common people. They feel ambivalent about celebrating Thanksgiving with their weird extended family. They get frustrated about going to that “important” annual dentist appointment. They even run to the market when they’re out of milk. In fact, some of them seem to REALLY love grocery shopping. Check out our gallery of 30 celebs caught in the act of loading up their carts. We don’t know what they were thinking… but we can guess.
Tina Fey takes the law into her own hands, fans of Homeland can get a little taste of the upcoming season, and Jane Lynch opens up about Glee‘s tribute to Cory Monteith.
Whether you’ll forever be in love with Nick Andopolis or Marshall Eriksen, or happen to think Rush has produced the greatest songs in musical history (next to the soundtracks to A Taste For Love and The Muppets), Jason Segel‘s increasingly diverse career path has something for everyone. And now, he’s expanding his resume once again.
Have you seen Amanda Bynes‘s new makeover? And how did Iron Man 3′s director change the film’s villain, The Mandarin, from the comics to the screen? This and more in this morning’s The Scoop.
We really, really thought these two were the real deal. Like apple pie and vanilla ice-cream — adorable, wholesome and perfectly matched. So you can imagine our dismay when we read about the reported split between Michelle Williams and Jason Segel. Sources say the break-up happened earlier this month, very quietly. We want to know why! Actually, do we really want to know? It would only make us extremely sad. They had been dating for a year and Jason was quoted as saying lovely things like, “I think we would just very much like to be happy. That’s all I’m going to say about it.” The famously private Michelle even told In Style, “I didn’t realize [boyfriend Jason Segel] was so tall [6’4”]. I thought, Hey, man, you’re cramping my style! I tried wearing wedge heels for a while to compensate, but it wasn’t me and I just gave up.” See … sad. We’re going to shut up now and hope for a reconciliation.

If you had to call comedy another name, you could call it “Judd Apatow.” The multi-talented writer/director/producer has dominated the face of funny over the past decade, and he’s responsible for some of the best laugh-out-loud films ever made. From his early features like (our childhood must-see) Heavyweights to small screen gems like Freaks and Geeks, and all the way through to box office busters like Superbad and Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy, his movies have defined comedy to a generation of people, and we’re thankful for all that laughs he’s given us over the years.
But we’re not the only people who should be thankful. Some of the biggest comedy stars in the world today got their big breaks by featuring in Judd’s movies. From James Franco to Seth Rogen and Jason Segel, Mr. Apatow can spot a career-making hit a mile off. What is the deal with his insane success rate? How is he able to produce such memorable characters that propel the actors into the mega-successful stratosphere?
The answer is simple: The Man-Child. Judd Apatow is the king of the emotionally stunted, delightfully immature, hilariously inept and maladjusted male who just can’t be a functional adult no matter how hard he tries. It’s a hallmark of all of his work. Whether it’s Steve Carell’s wax agony in The 40 Year Old Virgin, Seth Rogen staring down the barrel of fatherhood in Knocked Up, or Jason Segel’s nude and heartbroken misery in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we laugh so hard at these folks because we see our own faults in their complete and utter dysfunction. So in honor of Judd’s big day, we counted down our 15 favorite man children that he brought to the screen. We hope you enjoy it!
