Jason Segel will have to start courting another leading lady. After mentioning that he would like to work with Hillary Clinton, the Five-Year Engagement star just received a “Dear Jason” letter from the Secretary of State herself (courtesy of Politico). Click through to see how the most powerful woman in the world gave Segel the gentle brush-off and which co-star she won’t work without (hint: it’s not Bill).

“Dear Mr. Segel:

I was delighted to read about your interest in sharing the big screen with me. As you can imagine, I am a little occupied at the moment, but perhaps someday I can help you forget Sarah Marshall…again. My only condition is that there be Muppets involved, and that is non-negotiable. In the meantime, you have my best wishes for continued success with your career.

With best regards, I am

Sincerely yours,

Hillary Rodham Clinton”

Hillary is a Muppet maniac? Leaders of the Free World — they’re just like us!

What do you think, PopWatchers? Are you surprised at the letter’s sense of whimsy — or that Hillary took the time to write a letter to Segel at all? And do you think Segel superfan Chelsea Gill is now cruisin’ for a Clinton bruisin’ on her favorite star’s behalf?
