The actress has been spotted looking smitten with Segel during a date in NYC
Things have reportedly turned romantic between long-time friends Michelle Williams and Jason Segel.
Three time Oscar nominee Michelle has been papped strolling hand-in-hand with the actor after spending a romantic evening at Frankies Spuntino in Brooklyn on Saturday night.
A source tells US weekly: ‘He put his arm around her and made her laugh as they walked. (They) seemed very relaxed.’
The following day, Jason, 32, was snapped bonding with Michelle’s daughter Matilda, six, as she went for a ride on her scooter.
The magazine also reports that the low key couple have recently dined together in LA on two separate occasions.
An insider adds: ‘They are smitten and very serious. She hasn’t been this happy in a long time.’
The pair have been friends for years after they were introduced by Busy Philipps, but the relationship has only recently turned romantic.
Michelle, 31, who was previously engaged to the late actor Heath Ledger, the father of Matilda, separated from filmmaker Spike Jonze in 2009 and was rumoured to have been dating director Cary Fukunaga last year.
