Segel says the weight loss orders came directly from the film studio president because ‘it had to be conceivable that Emily Blunt would choose me to be her husband, which I thought was far enough.’

On a recent appearance on The David Letterman Show, Segel says he reached his lowest moment being overweight while he was working in New Orleans and indulging in too much food and alcohol.
