Jason Segel Cut 1 Real-Life Detail From the ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ Naked Breakup Scene

Forgetting Sarah Marshall isn’t the biggest comedy of the 2000s. But the movie features several incredibly funny scenes that permeated pop culture when it debuted in 2008. Arguably the most iconic moment is Peter Bretter’s (Jason Segel) nude breakup with the ritual Sarah (Kristen Bell) in his apartment. That ridiculous, cringy, hilarious scene comes directly from the writer and star’s actual life. But in a recent interview, Segel explained that the breakup was even wilder in reality, thanks to one detail left out of Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Jason Segel wrote ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ based on a true experience

Peter’s split with Sarah serves as the starting point of Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It sends him to Hawaii for his eventual romance with Rachel Janson (Mila Kunis). Segel was 24 when he wrote the screenplay. And like many young writers, he looked to his own past for inspiration.
