FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL star Jason Segel narrowly avoided serious injury in a motorcycle accident, thanks to his height.
The tall actor negotiates his way around Los Angeles on a Vespa scooter, even after a nasty scrape with a car.
Segel - who measures six foot, four inches (1.96 metres) - says, "I stood up to stretch my legs out. All of a sudden I heard a car screeching up behind me and boom, I get whacked.
"But because I'm so tall and I'm standing, the Vespa shot out from beneath my legs and I'm left standing there like Wile E. Coyote.
"The guy thought I was crazy because I just started laughing hysterically. It was amazing."
