Michelle Williams and Jason Segal split up because Williams wasn't able to make a long-term commitment to him, according to People.com.
Good to know. I haven't been able to sleep all week asking myself "Is there something I could've done to keep those two swell kids together?"
"She cares a great deal for Jason but is not ready to make a commitment," a source told People.com. "Maybe if they were together day-to-day, she would have more confidence in a future. But not at this time."
After dating for about a year, news slipped this week that the pair called it quits, citing long distance as the primary reason.
"Jason never got rid of his place in L.A., and Michelle's life with (daughter) Matilda was and has always been in New York," another source said. "While Jason made every effort to make them a priority in his life — and they were top priority — he still couldn't drop everything and leave his life and career in L.A."
Relationships haven't been easy for Williams the past few years. Her ex-boyfriend and father of her daughter, Heath Ledger, was found dead of an accidental prescription drug overdose in 2008, not long after they split up. About a year later she dated director Spike Jonze for about a year. Following their split, she didn't have a public romance again until Segel came along in 2012.
LINDSAY LOHAN SHOOTS GIFT HORSE IN THE MOUTH: Lindsay Lohan didn't take the plea deal offered by prosecutors Wednesday, according to TMZ.
Either she's dumber than she looks, or someone has some really interesting photos of the D.A.
Prosecutors were supposedly offering no jail time for Lohan after she was charged with three misdemeanors -- including lying to police -- in connection with her car wreck last June on the Pacific Coast Highway while she was on probation. In return, they wanted her to go to a substance abuse treatment facility for 60 days.
Nope. Because she doesn't have a problem. Just ask her.
Lohan's lawyer Mark Heller didn't accept the deal, according to TMZ, even when the other side offered to cut her stay closer to 30 days. Nope, said Heller.
Ever seen helpless parents at the mercy of a completely unreasonable child?
Sources connected with Lohan told the website Heller is willing to accept a plea that involves counseling and possibly some sort of rehab, but Lohan won't have it because to her it sounds like "punishment for something I didn't do."
Right. The car wasn't hers. She wasn't driving. That alcohol police found next to the car wasn't hers. She wasn't on probation for stealing jewelry. She should've won an Oscar for "Liz & Dick."
Negotiations are supposedly ongoing. If nothing happens, everyone goes to trial March 18.
ARNOLD SEEN AROUND TOWN WITH NEW LADY FRIEND: Arnold Schwarzenegger may have a girlfriend.
Yep -- he was spotted writing her name with little hearts around it on his Pee Chee folder.
Schwarzenegger has been spotted out and about multiple times with Heather Milligan, a 38-year-old Southern California physical therapist who works with a number of NFL athletes, according to the New York's Daily News.
The 65-year-old actor and former California governor dined with Milligan last Friday at Babalu in Santa Monica, and they were spotted driving around Brentwood the next day. TMZ reported the pair had brunch together.
That's right -- brunch. Don't you kids think you should slow down a bit?
A source told TMZ that, though Milligan is a physical therapist, "She is not in the normal group of people who treat him."
The News also reported that on Tuesday, Milligan deleted a "Happy Birthday" tweet to Schwarzenegger that she had posted last July.
Good thinking. We wouldn't want anyone to get wind of this relationship.
Schwarzenegger and his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver, split in 2011 following the revelation that he had fathered a child with a housekeeper. The action star later acknowledged that he had "inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain" on their four children. Various reports since then have indicated Schwarzenegger wanted to reconcile with Shriver, but it seems like that bird has flown.
JIMMY KIMMEL TARGETING MORRISSEY: Jimmy Kimmel's feud with Morrissey rages on.
The English singer and animal rights activist's abruptly pulled out of performing on Tuesday's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' when he discovered on Monday his fellow guests would be the duck-hunting stars of the A&E reality hit "Duck Dynasty."
According to E! News, on Wednesday, Kimmel tweeted "Note to Morrissey — if you have more dumb statements to make, I invite you to make them where I do, on my show." He also included a picture singer brandishing what looks like a tommy gun with the caption, "Morrissey, you are the Quarry."
Morrissey -- who's a vegan -- put out a press release after pulling out of the show, saying he "can't take the risk" morally of appearing alongside what he called "animal serial killers," referring to the Robertson family, whose exploits operating a business for duck hunters are chronicled on one of A&E's most-watched shows.
During his Tuesday monologue, Kimmel said "While I respect his stance on this, I really do, there's a very good reason why I didn't dump the 'Duck Dynasty' guys for Morrissey. And that's because they have guns," he said. "By the way, if Morrissey is this serious about being associated with meat of any kind he shouldn't do any television shows, because I guarantee when he was on Letterman last month there had to be an Outback Steakhouse commercial in the mix."
He added: "He keeps finding new ways to depress us."
Kimmel also showed a fake commercial featuring the 'Duck Dynasty' guys hawking a "carrot call," a product for vegans "specifically designed to mimic the call of a wild carrot."
CLINT EASTWOOD TELLS PROPOSITION 8 TO MAKE HIS DAY: Clint Eastwood joined more than 100 Republicans in signing a brief to the Supreme Court arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal, according to NBC News.
An Eastwood rep, as well as a spokesman for the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the group spearheading opposition to California's law banning same-sex marriage, confirmed that the Oscar-winning actor and director signed the brief, which is expected to be filed Thursday in the Proposition 8 case.
Other high-profile people who have filed briefs in the case include Minnesota Vikings' punter Chris Kluwe and Baltimore Ravens' linebacker Bredon Ayanbadejo.
The conservative website Breitbart.com first reported that Eastwood signed the brief.
The nation's high court will hear arguments in the case on March 26. Thursday is the last day for briefs to be filed in the case, and officials told NBC the Justice Department will urge the court to approve gay marriage in California.
The California Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that the state had to allow same-sex marriage. Some 18,000 same-sex couples wed before Prop. 8 was passed, prohibiting gays and lesbians from marrying. Lower courts have ruled the law is unconstitutional.
The Supreme Court will also hear arguments in late March on Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act, which bars federal recognition of same-sex marriage.
For Eastwood, it is the first high-profile foray into the national political scene since his controversial appearance at the Republican National Convention, when he sharply criticized President Obama in a routine that had him talking to an empty chair.
