London: Actor Jason Segel was motivated to lose weight after his publicist secretly snapped unflattering photos of the star during one of his worst moments.
The "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" actor recently shed 30 pounds (13.6 kg) and is looking fitter and better, reports express.co.uk.
"I shot a movie in New Orleans. New Orleans has the best food and booze anywhere. And, well, I really took advantage of that... Unfortunately my assistant had a key to my room, in case I overslept. She came in one day to wake me up and she took a bunch of pictures to show me what I had become," he said.
And although Segel was embarrassed by the truth-bearing photos, dropping the weight wasn`t exactly a fun experience.
"It`s, like, exactly what you think it is and it`s horrible. You just, like, exercise and eat less and don`t drink very much," he added.
