Academy Awards 2012: Jason Segel's wardrobe malfunction

Posted on

It may have been a winning night for Jason Segel’s friend and “Man or Muppet” composer Bret McKenzie, but for Segel the ceremony proved bumpy. The Muppets and How I Met Your Mother star was seen cracking up with Best Supporting Actor nominee Jonah Hill and Muppets scribe Nick Stoller when Segel told EW that some buttons had accidentally popped off his tuxedo shirt earlier this evening. His solution? Double-stick tape. “Every woman at the Oscars apparently has double-stick tape,” Stoller laughed. But from which red carpet attendee did Segel get his quick fix?

The date of Nick Nolte, Hill’s fellow Best Supporting Actor nominee. Noted Stoller, “But Maya Rudolph had some too.”
