Jason Segel Wants To Be Matilda Ledger's Father Figure

Jason Segel and Matilda Ledger

Oh, I think my heart just skipped a beat. Or two. And surprisingly I’m still here. We’re hearing that Jason Segel has become so close to his girlfriend Michelle Williams’ daughter Matila Ledger that he has actually reached out to Heath Ledger’s father to tell him that he’s there for Matilda and would like to be a father-figure for her. Excuse me while I swoon.

Now, we know that Michelle hasn’t seen eye-to-eye with Heath’s family in Australia over the late actor’s inheritance, but apparently Jason is trying to smooth things over by reaching out to Heath’s father Kim and trying to win his approval. Here’s what we’re reading from Radar Online:

“Jason got on the phone and introduced himself to Kim, and then invited the Ledgers to use his home whenever they wanted to fly in from Australia to visit Michelle and Maddie,” said the source close to the Ledger family.

“Kim was blown away by Jason’s generosity and the two hit it off right away. Now Kim’s given his blessing for Jason to marry Michelle and be a stepdad to Matilda.”

You know what, I’m not even part of the Ledger family put this has my total stamp of approval. Michelle, just do us a favor and marry Jason already. Hollywood is dying for a hipster wedding!
