Jason Segel, Rehab To 'Living Healthy' In Just 3 Months

Jason Segel recently lost a significant amount of weight, and the "How I Met Your Mother" star divulged his healthy secret this week.

The 33-year-old actor said that he cleaned up his eating habits in order to get in shape for his next movie, "Sex Tape."

"I've just been living healthy, exercising, eating right- no more midnight pizzas," said Segel speaking to Us Weekly. "This time when I take my shirt off, I've made a promise to myself, it doesn't have to be funny."

Segel's healthier lifestyle comes as a welcome change from just three months ago when the actor had reportedly checked into Alcoholics Anonymous following his split from actress Michelle Williams.

Continuing to discuss his slimmed-down appearance, Segel explained that his role in 2008's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" took a toll on him.

"I took heat for 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall,' where I was completely nude," said the actor, according to Us Weekly. "But different characters require different body types."

Furthermore, Segel hinted that "Sex Tape" might contain similar risqué scenes.

"It is R-rated, and I'm not in shape for no reason," he added.

The "Bad Teacher" actor will once again co-star alongside Cameron Diaz in "Sex Tape," a comedy that is due in theaters July 2, 2014.

Hollywood stars are often scrutinized for their weight, and Segel's weight loss arrives just as his "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" co-star Kristen Bell spoke out about losing weight from her pregnancy.

The actress, also 33, welcomed her first child, a daughter, Lincoln, with fiancé Dax Shepherd last March.

"I'm proud to sit out the baby weight rat race," Bell posted to her Twitter followers on Friday.

"I like my Lincoln leftovers because they're proof I did something extraordinary," she added. "I gave life to my new BFF & she gave me a comical amount of midsection skin."

Meanwhile, in addition to slimming down, Segel has been busy wrapping up the ninth and final season of CBS's hit show "How I Met Your Mother."

"My favorite moments have just been watching my cast mates grow up," he said of "HIMYM" actors such as Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan, among others.

The last season of the comedy begins on CBS on Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. EST.
