Hillary Clinton Turns Down Jason Segel Movie Offer … For Now

State Department photo(NEW YORK) -- During his appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last week, Jason Segel said he received what he described as “a rejection letter” from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding his comment that he’d love to make a movie with her.

According to Politico, The Muppets star was not kidding. The political blog has posted a copy of the signed note from the secretary of state, which reveals a working knowledge of Segel’s movies and a sense of humor.

Signed simply, “Hillary,” the brief letter states: “As you can imagine, I am a little occupied at the moment, but perhaps someday I can help you forget Sarah Marshall…again.”

Clinton noted one condition -- that there be Muppets involved. She called the clause non-negotiable.

Clinton concluded her letter by writing, “You have my best wishes for continued success with your career.”

Julia Roberts Lands Role as Global Ambassador

Michael Loccisano/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Julia Roberts is making room for another entry on her resume, as the actress takes up the role of Global Ambassador with the Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.

According to a release from the U.S. Department of State, Roberts, an Academy Award-winning actress, will serve as a Global Ambassador with the alliance, and work alongside U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to help raise awareness about the issue of toxic smoke from unsafe and inefficient cookstoves killing millions of people globally every year.

“Nearly 2 million people around the world – mostly women and children – die each year from an activity that many of us take for granted: cooking for our families,” Roberts said. “I am proud to stand with Secretary Clinton to work to reduce the senseless and preventable deaths from unsafe cooking conditions in the developing world and I look forward to contributing to the important work of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.”

The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is a public-private partnership led by the United Nations Foundation, and involves more than 60 national governments. The alliance seeks to create a global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions.
