Jason Segel quotes


- When a woman does nudity in a movie, men immediately switch into a sexual mode. For women, from what I understand, it's not like that. They see a naked, out-of-shape man crying and it's funny -- something weird, disturbing and disgusting we can all laugh at.
- {On his full-frontal performance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall] I drank a lot to get me through that. I remember just pacing up and down, drunk, with these voices in my head saying, "Jason, what are you doing?" I'm a little nervous, I won't get a date anymore, they won't be satisfied with what they saw.
