Last week we told you about Chelsea Gill, the perky girl who wrote her main celeb crush Jason Segel an adorable ditty and posted it on YouTube. Gill asked Segel out on a date — just a drink or coffee, she suggested. And amazingly, her online plea worked! Segel invited the Chicago-based Gill to attend the Chicago Film Critic Awards with him — and she could bring her best friend and identical twin sister along, too.
So what was Segel really like?
Said Gill of the meeting, “We talked about my video and he was just really flattered and he really loved it, which, of course, sent me over the moon,” she said. “He’s so down to earth, he was so funny — he’s absolutely everything he appears to be in interviews.” Gill, who is a struggling actor, stressed, “I did not do this to try to get famous. I wanted to be really respectful. It was one of those things where I know I wrote this video and I’m so glad he liked it and we got along so well. … I’m so humbled and touched that he would take time out of his busy schedule just to get a drink with me.”
