There comes a time when a mother is done changing her son's diapers and bathing him — after which point she neither needs nor wants to see her son's private parts.
Unfortunately for Jillian Segel — the mother of How I Met Your Mother star Jason Segel — she accidentally saw her son's full-grown man parts when she watched his 2008 movie, Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
It all went down at the very beginning of the movie, when Sarah (played by Kristen Bell) breaks up with Jason's character, who drops his towel in shock, revealing the full monty.
But the 34-year-old actor only has himself to blame for his mother bearing witness to his bare-nakedness. He wrote the movie, for one, and he also forgot tell his dear mom about his nudity.
"She cried," Jason tells Vanity Fair.
Then, once she had composed herself, she composed an email to give family members the "member" warning she never herself received. "I would like to inform you all that Jason has chosen to do full-frontal nudity," the email read.
But Mama Segel did respect the artistic decision: "However, it is not gratuitous and is essential to the plot."
Props for that, Jillian! (You poor, poor woman.)
