Actor, comedian, and ordained minister Jason Segel has had a successful career, but he keeps his personal life out of the spotlight. That includes his love life. Even though he's been connected to some big names like actresses Michelle Williams and Bojana Novakovic, he does keep that part of his life private.
The same goes for his current relationship. Jason has been dating photographer and artist Alexis Mixter for the past few years. The couple doesn't post too much of each other on social media, but they have been seen spending time together.
Who is Jason Segel's girlfriend, Alexis Mixter?
Jason's girlfriend, Alexis Mixter, is a professional photographer and artist based in New York City. According to her art website, she's originally from England but moved to the States to pursue her education. She went to the Fashion Institute of Technology and has a bachelor's in Fine Art.
In 2009, she moved to Southern California where she says her artistic inspirations expanded. She says she "gradually moved away from my traditional painting background" to try different mediums. Now, you can buy her woodwork on her website that features intricate designs. Each collection on her website seems to follow its own separate theme.
How did Jason Segel and Alexis Mixter meet?
It's not clear how the couple met, but they reportedly started dating in 2015 and have been together ever since. The Daily Mail says that dating rumors first sparked at the beginning of that year when they were spotted together at a grocery store in West Hollywood. Since then, the couple has been spotted all over together holding hands and just looking comfortable spending time together.
Although they have been together for years, it doesn't look like Jason and Alexis live together. During the summer of 2020, Jason was seen dropping off food for Alexis. The Daily Mail has pics of him in L.A. leaving food for her even though they were social distancing three hours apart.

"It was a routine death in every sense," the article says. "It was ordinary. Common. The only remarkable element was Dane."
