Michelle Williams has been snapped taking a romantic stroll with her new beau Jason Segel. Williams has a daughter, Matilda, with the late actor Heath Ledger and Segel has also been pictured bonding with Matilda, too. U.S Weekly Magazine have reported on the unexpected pairing, publishing some candid shots of the couple enjoying a walk together after dinner a couple of days ago (March 24, 2012)
Jason and Michelle had reportedly been out for a meal together at Frankie Spuntino's restaurant in Brooklyn, when they were captured looking every bit the happy couple, as Jason had his arm around Michelle's shoulder. The following day, as Matilda enjoyed a ride on her purple scooter, Segel - dressed up warm in a thick grey coat and woolly hat - watched over her to make sure she stayed safe. Williams and Segel have known each other for years, through Michelle's pal Busy Philipps, but their friendship only recently turned romantic. Currently, Michelle lives in Brooklyn and Segel's living in Los Angeles, but they seem determined to make the relationship work. A source told US magazine that they are "trying to make it work," before adding that the My Week With Marilyn star "hasn't been this happy in a long time."
Earlier this year, Michelle Williams received her third Oscar nomination, for her performance in My Week With Marilyn, in which she played the titular role of Marilyn Monroe. She has previously been nominated for her roles in Blue Valentine (2011) and Brokeback Mountain (2006).
