Jason Segel revealed one of Michael Jackson’s interviews helped him to escape his life’s ‘unhappiness’ phase.

Jason Segel stated that one of Michael Jackson’s interviews helped him get through a period of ‘unhappiness’ in his life.

During an interview with Rolling Stone, the Shrinking star recalled a time when he was at his peak but miserable.

“In that period when I was trying to figure it out, I only took projects where I could be around people I really admired, so I could ask them a lot of questions,” Segel said.

“This crazy interview between Michael Jackson and Kobe Bryant where Michael Jackson basically told Kobe Bryant, ‘When you are around people you admire, do not be a fan, be an interviewer,” the 43-year-old continued. ‘Ask them whatever question you think may be useful to you on your trip.'”

“So I asked a friend, ‘What exactly is art?” ‘Art is executing an act of self-exploration on behalf of an audience,’ he stated, which resonates with my acting technique,” the actor added.

“Now I choose things where it’s my job for the next however long this project is, to go through something on film, and in this one it’s grief.”
