Jason Segel: The Judd Apatow Circle & I Are Normal Dudes
Here’s what the 30-year-old Despicable Me actor had to share:
On whether or not he’ll ever get married: “For me it’s much more about meeting the right person. I don’t have that thing that women have – ‘I’ve gotta be married by the time I’m 33, gotta have a kid by the time I’m 35.’ Let’s see where life takes me, y’know? If I met the girl, I’d marry her tomorrow.”
On having found fame after years in the business: “I think it’s hilarious. And I think our group, the Judd Apatow circle—our ‘thing’ is that we’re normal dudes. All our movies are just us kind of sitting around smoking pot and just hanging out, and people tend to treat us like that, like [hey-brah dude voice] ‘Oh, s—, what’s up? Can I buy you a shot?’ And we are those dudes.”
“When we started out—when I got Freaks and Geeks, I was like 18, Seth was 16. Judd wasn’t who Judd is now. And we would sit around and just wax poetic about how we’d take over Hollywood someday. And then it happened, that’s the weird part of it—but I think in our minds, we’re still those dudes, sitting around like, ‘We’re gonna show ‘em all!’”
