Jason Segel shows off his dramatic weight loss in Boston: would you hit it?

Jason Segel

These are photos of Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz on the set of their romantic comedy, S*x Tape. The movie is about a couple who seeks to recover their homemade pr0n video. It sounds pretty dumb, but I’m excited to see these two reunite after their Bad Teacher chemistry worked so well. Plus Jason and Cam are probably hooking up in real life, and that’s hot.

Jason has been steadily losing weight over the past several months. Part of this transformation might be a result of quitting booze, but he’s looking a little bit gaunt in these photos. I don’t seek to body shame him, but the cumulative weight loss displayed here is a bit shocking compared to his former teddy-bear self. I actually think he looks fine, but I don’t want to see him lose any more. Does that make sense? Jason recently revealed how he lost weight for this movie’s nude scenes. He didn’t want to take crap like he did after disrobing in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. That was a great movie, but I can see why he wouldn’t want a repeat of the same cruel jokes:

“This time when I take my shirt off, I’ve made a promise to myself, it doesn’t have to be funny,” he said.

“I took heat for Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where I was completely nude,” the Hollywood star said. “But different characters require different body types.”

So what’s the part that Segel’s gearing up for?

His upcoming project dubbed S*x Tape, which costars Cameron Diaz. The comedy is focused around a married couple who search for and try to retrieve a lost porn video they made of themselves.

Ahh, we get where this is going.

“It is R-rated,” Segel admitted, adding, “and I’m not in shape for no reason.”

From the looks of things, he is definitely in shape and ready to film the highly anticipated flick.

S*x Tape is currently slated to hit the big screens next summer.

I wonder if this weight loss will be permanent for Jason. Losing a few pounds for a romantic comedy is one thing, but I hope he doesn’t get obsessed about it. This isn’t Oscar-bait material where actors traditionally lose weight for awards. I think Jason looks good no matter what. There’s something about him that seems irresistable.

Here are some pics of Jason and Cameron on set together. Their characters were doing it in this car, and the windows are all steamed up as a result.

    He looks unhealthy now and super creepy, so no, I would have hit it during FSM though.

  2. MollyB says:

    I never got his appeal before the weight loss and certainly not now. I haven’t seen his show but in movies he always struck me as a charisma vacuum. And that slicked-back hair is doing nothing for him.

  3. Insomniac says:

    Whoa. His face looks really scary when he’s thin.

  4. Lori says:

    A little too skinny for me. But this is probably healthier than before when it was all booze weight. The thing about weight loss is that it takes awhile before your skin settles(?) and he still looks a little droopy.

    • Meredith says:

      I used to work with alcoholics who had just quit. They usually GAIN weight as their appetite for real food kicks in. And they develop quite a taste for sweets as the body seeks a substitute (sugar) for the booze. No weight loss like Jason.

  5. Caroline says:

    This looks more heroin than just “off booze” and it creeps me out.

  6. T.Fanty says:

    It isn’t the body – it’s the face. He looks utterly unwell.

    • Faye says:

      This. I’ve adored Jason for years, and think he looks better thinner than heavier But he doesn’t just look skinny here – he looks unhealthy. The washed-out, pale face, the dark circles under the eyes, the overall skin tone – this is not the look of someone who lost weight in a healthy way. I hope drugs are not involved -I know he used to smoke a lot of pot, but hopefully he hasn’t moved on to anything stronger.

      If you look at how he was Season 1, 2 of How I Met Your Mother, you can see the difference. At the time he talked about losing weight in a healthy way, going to the gym, and you could really tell – he had muscle tone, his skin was almost glowing, he looked great. Not at all like this.

  7. Rhea says:

    Yowza! I barely recognize his face like that. He seems….sick or something.

  8. Ank says:

    He’s just not aging well at all. :(

  9. blue marie says:

    No, but I wouldn’t have hit it before either.

  10. name du jour says:

    He looks like he’s been through a serious illness. Maybe it’s just bad lighting.

  11. Kiddo says:

    What the hell happened? His appearance seemed to have changed over night. I hope he isn’t sick. Although, some people just look better with some weight on.

  12. mary simon says:

    would not hit that, before or after. he’s creepy.

  13. lenje says:

    I agree with most commenters above, he looked better a little chubbier (especially on the face). And it’s actually kind of refreshing to see actors who don’t seem to love the mirrors and their biceps more than us!

  14. Becky says:

    Personally, I think I preferred his look pre-weight loss. I think he should stick to whatever weight he’s comfortable with, though. I hope he’s not feeling pressure from anybody about the weight. The body standards celebrities are expected to adhere to are just crazy.

  15. Syko says:

    Nope, he looked better before. Are we sure he’s not sick? He looks sick.

  16. Samigirl says:

    With the exception of Alexander Skarsgard, I’m mostly attracted to chubby men. Thin JS does NOT do it for me. ANGRY FACE.

  17. Rhiley says:

    The 5 Year Engagement is one of the cutest movies, and Jason is terrific in it. So adorable. But he does look really really bad in these photos, and like others have commented, I hope he hasn’t traded one addiction for another.

  18. Lee says:

    Agree with everyone above: he looks really unwell. It seems strange to even ponder the “hit it” question – because he might be sick and I feel bad for my first response of “ick”.

  19. Kit says:

    He truly does look ill, yeesh… his complexion is almost yellow (or maybe that’s just my screen?), and it seems he might have allergy shiners. Whatever it is, hope he gets better soon :(

  20. MegG says:

    He looks ill or something. Just scary. Liked him the way he was before too.

  21. TG says:

    I like Jason in movies. He is always funny and I am always rooting for him. Now Deth Rohan in the other hand annoys the heck out of me. Just hope Jason is well because I agree with others on here he looks sick or something.

  22. magpie says:

    He looks like Beavis from Beavis and Butthead.

  23. Applapoom says:

    Don’t think he is too thin but his teeth…is he a heavy smoker? And he looks like he does not sleep well.

  24. the original original says:

    I love him. Peter (FSM) and Marshall (HIMYM) are my perfect boyfriend. I always say that. I dont like this look for him at all. Bring back the soft :)

  25. Jen says:

    Ew, he’s like Jonah Hill, some men just look better with a little extra “heft.” Not that that has to mean fat, just….something more.

  26. eliza says:

    I am sorry, but this dude grosses me out. I have no clue what it is about him but I am being serious when I say, I cannot watch a movie he is in. I FF through his parts.

    Diaz is another one who I cannot stand.

    I suspect both are not very clean people.

  27. Axis2ClusterB says:

    He looks meth-y or sick, and it’s not because he’s lost weight. He has a generally unhealthy looking appearance to me here. It may be the lighting, but he just does not look well.

  28. Harpreet says:

    He was skinny in the earlier seasons of HIMYM, but looked healthier then.

  29. grabbyhands says:

    To be fair, I’ve never had the hots for him, but no I would not hit it here. He looks cadaverous. In his defense, these are not good pictures either.

  30. Tessa says:

    Um, he looks strung out and like his teeth are rotting out of his mouth. Are we sure this is for a part, or is that his excuse for going on a meth binge?

  31. kibbles says:

    This is a great example of someone who looks better as a chubby person. I am not promoting unhealthy living or obesity, but people like Maria Kang need to realize that not everyone is meant to be skinny. You see naturally “rounder” people who lose weight and they end up looking even unhealthier, unproportioned, and odder than before. As it has already been stated plenty of times by others here, as you age, you need to balance your weight in accordance to your face. I don’t think it is so much as choosing between your face or your body but accepting that you won’t be as thin as your 20 year old self and being fine with that as long as your body is healthy and there is a bit of fat in your face to make it less gaunt and wrinkled. Too much weight loss and it looks really bad for a lot of people as they age. Jason looks awful. He needs to gain at least ten pounds back. In conclusion, no I wouldn’t hit it. He looked a lot better in the Five Year Engagement.

  32. Sara says:

    He looks super unhealthy and scary. I hope its not meth face. Yikes!

  33. Bodhi says:

    I barely recognized him!

    I very seriously doubt that this drastic of a weigh loss was achieved by diet & exercise alone

  34. Grant says:

    He needs some sun or something…

  35. mercy says:

    He looked healthier when he was a little chubby, but it’s been awhile since I’ve seen pics of him. Was he a big drinker? He looks sort of weathered, like someone who has been through some stuff.

  36. CatT says:

    He looks like Herman Munster.
    Having said that.. it’s doubtful even LILY would hit that.

  37. Mandy says:

    I don’t like this. He looks sickly. He was way cuter in Forgetting Sarah Marshall if you ask me. I want the Teddy Bear back!

  38. Happy21 says:

    I liked him with a little more meat on his bones. He had this teddy bear quality about him. Now he doesn’t have the same appeal.

  39. Anon33 says:

    I know this post isn’t really about this…but DAMN. Every time I see a pic of Diaz now she just looks so…awful. Just awful. It’s like her face is sliding down her neck. She looks absolutely terrible.

  40. apsutter says:

    His weight has always yo-yoed drastically which I think can be blamed on his bad habits and not eating or living cleanly. He was incredibly skinny when he was very young and you can see his noticeable weight changes very well on How I Met Your Mother. These past two seasons he has looked really good but in these photos he just looks…worn out

  41. Jessica says:

    I like how he looked before. He’s too skinny now.

  42. miriam says:

    He’s got an evil-looking face there. Do not like it.

  43. Colleen says:

    I was just on a blind item website – I never even come close to guessing correctly – and the latest item is about a male, comedic actor from both TV and movies who has a terrible eating disorder. This screams Jason. I hope he gets the help his friends are begging him to get. So so sad.

  44. NeuroJo says:

    I saw him in Cambridge MA two weekends ago. Always had a bit of crush on him but at that time (and these pictures show) he was not looking good in the flesh. I actually thought to myself “uh-oh there’s going to be a story coming out about him soon”.

  45. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Cameron looks great with curly/wavy hair. It’s a good look on her and softens her features. Makes her look younger too.

    As for JS, well he’s never done much for me, but as others have said he doesn’t look well. Maybe it is just a bad angle/picture?

  46. Shijel says:

    BlindGossip dropped an item about him just now, and I’m inclined to agree as someone who has had and still struggles with the aftermath of an eating disorder.
    Dude doesn’t eat right.

  47. palermo says:

    He looks absolutely terrible. All of a sudden we can see all those moles or whatever they are too. Shudder.

  48. Claire says:

    Poor Marshall! I have noticed lately in episodes of HIMYM that he didn’ look right. He was kinda cute around Season 3 of the show. Think he has issues – I just always thought he couldn’t fake that sweetness he exudes.

  49. Cinderella says:

    I’ve liked Jason since Freaks and Geeks, but I do think he has a “problem”.

  50. Will says:

    He looks like a serial killer with late stage melanoma.
