Michelle Williams opens up about her relationship with Jason Segel in the March issue of InStyle, confessing to the mag that she was less than familiar with his work before they became an item.

The very private actress reveals, “He is nice… I didn’t actually realize who he was before I started dating him. I saw The Muppets movie, and I thought, ‘oh, that’s cute,’ but the truth is I didn’t realize he made a lot of very popular, funny movies or was on a TV show.”

Williams, who’s 5 foot 4 inches, says she was also caught off guard by Segel’s height.

She adds, “But maybe more important, I didn’t realize he was so tall [6’4”]. I thought, ‘Hey, man, you’re cramping my style!’ I tried wearing wedge heels for a while to compensate, but it wasn’t me and I just gave up.”

Williams appears on the cover of InStyle with her Oz the Great and Powerful costars, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz.

The magazine hits newsstands on February 8.
