Last week, we told you about Chelsea Gill, Jason Segel’s “sane, tested, and disease-free” megafan who wrote a brilliant song asking The Muppets star on a date and posted it to YouTube. Segel quickly declared it “My favorite thing, maybe ever” and tweeted that he’d need a couple of days to put his response together. Four days later, he went above and beyond expectations, as witnessed by a picture that Gill shared with the Chicago Tribune.
Segel invited the 23-year-old Chi-town native and her twin to have a drink at the Ritz-Carlton hotel before accompanying him to Saturday’s Chicago Film Critic Awards, where he received the Commedia Extraordinaire Award. It was a dream come true for Gill, who admitted she “never thought that Jason would ever hear the song.” A girl has to keep some things close to her heart, so Gill didn’t say much about the evening, except that Segel is “really a wonderful person. He is so down-to-earth, sweet and humble; just a sweetheart.”
