Jason Segel Says He Isn't in the Movie Industry for the Awards

Jason Segel and Rami Malek arrive at the 2016 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Award Nominees Brunch on Saturday (January 9) at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood, Calif.

While the 35-year-old actor’s role in The End of the Tour earned him a nomination for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead, Jason said he doesn’t focus too heavily on awards while making movies.

“When I focus too much on the awards talk, I find myself stifled, creatively,” he told Vulture. “If I had been thinking like that in my 20s, there would never have been a lavish puppet musical at the end of Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”

FYI: Rami is wearing a Montblanc watch.
