Jason Segel's mother cried after watching his full-frontal nude scene


Jason Segel's mother broke down in tears after watching the actor's nude scene in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," and then emailed the rest of the family to warn them.

The funnyman famously flashed his private parts in the 2008 break-up comedy in a scene in which his character is dumped. However, Segel failed to tell his mother, Jillian, about the nudity before she watched the movie.

Speaking to Vanity Fair magazine, he explains, "She cried," before revealing she later sent an email message to their relatives to tell them about the full-frontal scene. The email read: "I would like to inform you all that Jason has chosen to do full-frontal nudity, however, it is not gratuitous and is essential to the plot."

Love this movie! This is a funny bit of trivia to have!

It most certainly was not "essential to the plot", but so rare is it these days that men (in comparison to women) do scenes such as that- I found it highly entertaining.

Well...after seeing that movie, no one can insist that he isn't Jewish.

Jason is a great actor and the scene worked well.  Touching highlight of a funny hit comedy.  I'm a fan.  The Victorian era is over--we have bodies.

full frontal nudity, or nudity of any kind is NOT essential to any plot! What pure bs and crap.
