"The Muppets" star Jason Segel had to lose weight for his latest role in "The Five-Year Engagement" - because film bosses insisted he had to be more toned to romance Emily Blunt.

The funnyman admits he lost 35 pounds as he prepared to play the British actress' fiance - and a trainer/nutritionist was hired to monitor his calorie intake on the set.

Segel says, "I was told that it had to be conceivable that Emily Blunt would ever choose me to be her husband... They (producers) sent a trainer to the set and I had to work out twice a day and then he would watch me eat all day."

But the actor ...
