Jason Segel had to get rid of extra pounds for his new movie

April 25, 2012 Emily Blunt, Jason Segel

Jason Segel has revealed that his bosses forced him to lose weight in the new movie ‘The Five-year Engagement’. He said his bosses told him to lose at least 35lbs because they wanted the movie to look as natural and realistic as possible. In the movie he stars along Emily Blunt.

Segel said “I was forced to lose weight for this movie. It was by the studio president. I was told I had to be conceivable that Emily Blunt would ever choose me to be her husband, which I think is fair enough. I had to lose a good 35lbs.

“I didn’t enjoy it but they sent me a trainer to set and I had to work out twice a day and he would also watch me eat all day”.

Like anyone trying to lose weight, the now fit looking Segel said he had a problem keeping up with the rules. “What they didn’t anticipate is that I’m very clever and I played a chef in the movie so there were a lot of scenes in which I had to eat.

“So I paid my co-stars phenomenal amounts of money to mess up their lines during the scenes and I’d get to keep eating”.
