Jason Segel drops 30 pounds after compromising fast-food photo surfaces

June 24, 2011 | 10:22 pm

Jason Segel stopped by David Letterman's couch on Thursday night, revealing that an embarrassing photo served as his inspiration to lose weight.

The "Bad Teacher" funnyman told Letterman he had been in New Orleans working -- and enjoying what he called the "best food and booze anywhere."

"I really took advantage of it," Segel said. "Unfortunately my assistant had, like, a key to my room in case I overslept. She came in one day to wake me up and took a bunch of pictures to show me what I had become."

One of the photos, which Segel shared, caught of the actor covered in Taco Bell wrappers, and passed out on his back.

"Honest to God, Jason, this looks like a crime scene," Letterman said.
