Michelle Williams & Jason Segel Step Out As A Couple

Busy Phillips is like, 'well, there goes the 2013 Oscar red carpet.'

Michelle Williams has been romantically linked to comedy actor Jason Segel for a couple of months now, and the two have made it (sort of) official.

They stepped out together, hand in hand, in front of photographers. The two took a romantic stroll after eating at Frankie's Spuntino in Brooklyn on Saturday. And despite the fact that Jason Segel looks like he could grab her in his fist and climb up the Empire State Building, they actually make a really cute couple.

"He put his arm around her and made her laugh as they walked," a witness told Us Weekly. "[They] seemed very relaxed."

It's the first time Michelle has been romantically linked to anyone in a while. Lately, she's been taking her bestie, Busy Phillips, to red carpet events.

After Michelle's night out with Jason, they were seen together the next day. Woaaaah! Walk of Shame! Except not really. Jason was photographed bonding with Matilda, Williams' 6 year-old daughter with the late Heath Ledger.

Michelle and Jason have reportedly been friends for years, meeting through Segel's Freaks and Geeks costar, Busy. But their relationship only recently went beyond friendship. Late February, the two had dinner and laughed at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, and then they shared dinner at West Hollywood's Comme Ca earlier this month.

A source says they're "trying to make it work. She hasn't been this happy in a long time."
