Jason Segel has said he'll never be a Hollywood hunk - but insists he is ok about it.

The Five-Year Engagement funnyman has played a string of loveable leading roles, and admits he is no Brad Pitt.

He told The Times: "There are two types of actor. One is the fantasy projection of who you wish you were, like a regular house husband who secretly worked for the CIA.

"And the other is the sad reality of who you are. The guy who likes to watch TV and eats a little too much food and is having trouble in his relationship. That's what I do."

But despite his modesty, Jason revealed he has no trouble meeting women.

The actor, who is dating Oscar-nominated star of My Week With Marilyn, Michelle Williams, said: "I've always been very comfortable with women. I like them. As friends and as romantic partners.

"I just get on with women really well. And you can feel it in my scripts."
