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.”

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.

Michelle Williams Short Hair 'Memorial' to Heath Ledger

Jason Merritt/Getty Images for Hollywood Film Awards(NEW YORK) -- In a new interview for Elle magazine, the fiercely private Michelle Williams opened up about her signature cropped hairdo and why she refuses to grow her hair long, despite her daughter Matilda’s wish.

“What Matilda would love is for her mom to grow out the cropped hair, though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon,” she said about her six-year-old daughter with former partner Heath Ledger.

“I’ve really grown into it -- I feel like myself with short hair. And it’s been a really long time since I had long hair, five years,” she explained.

“Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair!” she added.

But one man did, she revealed.

“I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it,” she said of Ledger who died suddenly in 2008 at age 28.
