Chris O'dowd - Chris O'Dowd took baths with Jason Segel

Chris O'Dowd claims he used to take baths with Jason Segel.

The 'Bridesmaids' actor - who is married to British TV presenter and author Dawn O'Porter - moved into the 'How I Met Your Mother' star's Los Angeles home for a month while filming a movie and he joked that the experience made them even closer friends.

The 33-year-old Irish actor told GQ magazine: ''We'd do lunch a lot! And we'd take baths together. You know, so we don't use so much water.''

Chris, who believes girls love his ''teddy bear'' good looks, also claims that he has received a lot marriage proposals since starring in 'Bridesmaids'.

He said: ''I said yes to eleven, but only two of them came through.''

Chris previously said he was glad he only found fame as he got older.

The actor became a household name starring in UK TV sitcom 'The I.T. Crowd' in 2006 and has since starred in a number of well known films as well as HBO series 'Girls' and is relieved he has had a gradual path to stardom.

He said: ''The fame thing has happened very gradually, so I've been kind of lucky. I don't know how I would have dealt with it if I had been one of the 'Twilight' guys. To be 21 and that famous would be terrifying.''
