Jason Segel is an American actor known for playing the role of Marshall Eriksen in the sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Segel is also a celebrated screenwriter and producer, and he has produced several successful comedy films.
Jason’s film credits include roles in Knocked Up, Bad Teacher, Sex Tape, The Muppets, The Five-Year Engagement, and The End of the Tour. His performance in The End of the Tour earned him an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Male Lead. Jason has generally been low-key about his relationships over the years, but he has been linked to several famous women.
Jason’s ex-girlfriend Alexis Mixter announced the couple’s breakup in April 2021
Via a lengthy April 2021 post, Alexis Mixter announced that she’d broken up with Jason Segel. “The depth of our bond was something I could never have anticipated,” she wrote alongside a photo of the pair. “I’ve never spent so much time with another person, grown so much alongside someone else, laughed so much, cried so much, shared so much.”
Alexis revealed that the couple had decided a while back to ‘let ourselves grow away from what our relationship had been and into what it was becoming.’ She described announcing the breakup via social media as strange but necessary. “We are private people when it comes to our personal lives and I intend to keep it that way,” she wrote before adding:
“Thank you J for being my best friend. The person who shares all my favorite jokes, sees who I really am and all I want to be, loves me unconditionally and makes me always strive to be bigger and better than I was yesterday. I will never stop cheering you on with every cell of my body. I will never stop loving you unconditionally.”
The post suggested that the pair had an amicable breakup and are still friends. “It is odd to write about the end of a relationship, especially when the friendship that still exists is so full of life,” Mixter wrote. Segel is yet to comment on the breakup.
Michelle Williams broke up with Jason because she wasn’t ready for commitment
Michelle and Jason started dating when he was filming How I Met Your Mother in Los Angeles. On the other hand, Michelle and her daughter were living miles away in New York. The relationship failed to work because Michelle didn’t want to commit to a future with Jason while he was living so far away from her and her daughter. A source speaking to the People stated:
“She cares a great deal for Jason but is not ready to make a commitment. Maybe if they were together day-to-day, she would have more confidence in a future. But not at this time.”
Jason tried to keep the relationship alive by traveling to New York as much as he could, but in the end, it became too stressful for the couple. Another source stated:
“Jason never got rid of his place in LA, and Michelle’s life with Matilda was and has always been in New York. While Jason made every effort to make them a priority in his life – and they were top priority – he still couldn’t drop everything and leave his life and career in LA.”
It was after this breakup that Segel swore off dating famous people. He was previously linked with actresses such as Lindsay Lohan, Michelle Trachtenberg, Michelle Ryan, Drew Barrymore, and Linda Cardellini. His decision now seems to have paid dividends as he is happy with Alexis Mixter.
