Jason Segel impressed girl with Elton song

Jason Segel once serenaded a girlfriend with a Sir Elton John song - and she believed he'd written it.

The American star has discussed the lengths he's gone to in order to impress his partners in the past. When he was a young man, he decided the way to a woman's heart was through music.

"I once took piano lessons only to impress a girl. Then I played Elton John's Your Song and told her I had written the song for her. She wasn't the smartest," he laughed to stern.de.

Jason thinks having a good sense of humour helps on the dating scene. It's especially important in Hollywood, where people sometimes obsess about appearances.

"Yes, it helps. Beauty disappears at some point. Humour stays. At the end of the day we all look for a partner who we can spend some time with. It can't be all about sex," he said.

"Well, sex doesn't last very long. After one, two minutes. No, I'm just kidding. I meant 30, 40 seconds, then the show is finished"

Jason is currently dating actress Michelle Williams and says he would leave everything behind for the sake of his lover "without batting an eye".

"There probably isn't one in real life. But I think if you meet someone who makes you a better person that's a pretty good start," he said, when asked about the perfect relationship.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
