Michelle Williams and Jason Segel Part Ways

Jason Merritt/Getty Images for Hollywood Film Awards(LOS ANGELES) -- Michelle Williams and Jason Segel have parted ways, sources tell Us Weekly.

The Oz the Great and Powerful actress and The Muppets star reached the end of the road with their romance earlier this month.

The pair was photographed together in January on vacation in Cancun but insiders say the relationship couldn’t survive the long distances involved.  Williams lives with her daughter Matilda in New York, while Segel has filming commitments in Los Angeles, where he shoots How I Met Your Mother.

Though the stars rarely acknowledged their relationship in public, a source told Us Weekly last summer they were "totally in love," and added, "Jason is obsessed with Michelle.”

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.”

Michelle Williams, Jason Segel Heating Up

Gilbert Carrasquillo/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Michelle Williams and her new beau, funny guy Jason Segal, have taken their romance public.

After being spotted together several times on the streets of New York City, the pair were sweetly affectionate at Wednesday’s premiere of Segal’s new film, The Five-Year Engagement, at the Tribeca Film Festival.

According to People magazine, as the screening ended, Segal gave Williams a kiss on the cheek as she rose to leave. Later, when the My Week With Marilyn star caught up with Segel at the afterparty at the Museum of Modern Art, he held her hand and whispered in her ear, the magazine reported.

“Jason would put his arms around her waist and they gave each other a few sweet pecks -- they definitely seemed to have a physical chemistry,” an onlooker told Us Weekly. “Every actor in there was so enamored by the couple!”

Segel, 32, recently commented on his surprise relationship with Williams, 31, whose famous ex, the late Heath Ledger, is the father of her 6-year-old daughter Matilda.

“I think we would just very much like to be happy. That’s all I’m going to say about it,” the actor told Extra earlier this week.

Last week, he let his technology do the talking, when he revealed that he has photos of Williams taped to the back of his iPhone.
