Segel and Williams have been friends for a while, but are they taking things to the next level?

It seems to us like there is always a new Hollywood couple popping up out of the blue. This week, Michelle Williams, 31, and Jason Segel, 32, have headlines breaking news of their new relationship.

According to Us Weekly, the pair has been close friends for years now, but are just starting their romance. They originally met through Busy Phillips, Williams' BFF and Segel's former Freaks and Geeks co-star. Michelle Williams Confirms Straight Men Don't Like Short Hair

A source tells the magazine that the three-time Oscar nominee and My Week With Marilyn star "has never been happier," thanks to her new leading man.

Despite the couple living on opposite sides of the world, (Williams is a Brooklyn girl while Segel lives in Los Angeles), they are doing everything they can to make it work.

The source also shares with Us, "They are smitten and very serious."

News broke of the unexpected couple as they were photographed taking a moonlit stroll around Brooklyn on March 24. A witness recalls, "He put his arm around her and made her laugh as they walked. (They) seemed very relaxed."

The following day, the How I Met Your Mother star was seen in Brooklyn without Williams, but with her beautiful 6-year-old daughter Matilda. Matilda took a ride on her scooter while having some bonding time with her mother's new beau. /node/126898
