Michelle Williams And Jason Segel: When Hollywood Starlets Date Funnymen

Michelle Williams is dating Jason Segel. We’ll give you a moment to let that sink in… While the pairing may initially seem odd, when you really think about it, it’s not all that weird. Michelle is besties with Jason’s former “Freaks and Geeks” co-star Busy Phillipps. And, judging from paparazzi pics posted by Us Weekly, they do look pretty cute together, and he does seem to really get along with Michelle’s daughter, Matilda.

“They are smitten and very serious,” a source revealed to the magazine about the couple, who are trying to make their bi-coastal relationship work. They were recently spotted together in Brooklyn, where Michelle lives.

Michelle and Jason are hardly the first couple, as of late, to be half starlet, half funnyman. In fact it seems trendy for hip, young Hollywood ladies to want their guys to make them laugh. As they say, opposites attract. So, what other starlets are jumping on the comedian bandwagon?

Olivia Wilde dating Jason Sudeikis
The twosome first hooked up in late 2011 and have been going strong ever since, spotted out together at sporting events and black-tie affairs. In fact, things seem to be going so well between the couple that they are set to portray love interests in the flick, “Relanxious,” where they will play people with LOL-worthy quirks who must put them aside in order to be together.

Emily Blunt married to John Krasinski
Nearing their second wedding anniversary, the TV actor and his leading lady love married in July 2010, but they’ve been together for nearly four years now. Emily, who tends to play uptight characters in movies, and the seemingly laid-back John are actually pretty adorable together, despite the initial head-scratching when they first began dating in 2008.

Amber Tamblyn dating David Cross
To this day, there’s one couple that still perplexes us. It’s Amber Tamblyn and 20-years-her-senior boyfriend David Cross. The pair began dating in 2008 and were even rumored to be engaged last year. It just seemed initially jarring that the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” actress would date the off-color comedian, but all these years later, they are still in love. And, perhaps, a little bit of David has rubbed off on Amber.

BONUS: Rihanna dating Ashton Kutcher?
It’s all rumor at this point, but it seems worth mentioning. Even if we’re just being Punk’d.
