Miss Piggy Most Wanted

The legend talks to ELLE

The iconic Miss Piggy had lots to say when she visited the ELLE Fashion Cupboard this week. Did you hear she’s a feminist? Here’s some more insight from the porcine princess…

Q: How does it feel to be the bride in the new Muppets movie?

A: Fabulous! I get to be the center of attention with everyone doting over me and taking my picture and giving me presents. Why, it’s exactly like…well…every other day of my life. But It’s still special!

Q: How do you prepare for a movie role – any particular healthy eating or fitness regimes?

A: Once I know I’m going to be in a movie, I know that the studio will pick up the tab for everything. So, I order in a lot…. [chef] Wolfgang Puck stops by with a truck on the way home. Also, I run….usually after Kermie.

Q: Who was your favourite celebrity to work with in the new Muppets movie? There were lots of A-list cameos…

A: Celine Dion! Because we spent so much time together performing our duet. And we both adore being fabulous! But I enjoy granting an audience to all the a-list stars who appear in our movie. As long as they bring a gift.

Most Popular

Q: Lady Gaga is in the movie – what did you think of the meat dress she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards?

A: All I could think was: What I wouldn’t give for a George Forman Grill right about now.

Q: What was it like spending so much time on camera with Constantine, rather than your beloved Kermit?

A: He’s cute…if completely evil. But there is only one Kermit. I missed him when he was in the Gulag…with that hussy, Tina Fey. But I knew it would all works out in the end, because—after all – I have final script approval

Q: Do you have any gossip you can share with us from the time you spent making the movie? Any behind-the-scenes shenanigans?

A: Just that scene where Tina [Fey] licks Kermie. After I saw that, I got a restraining order against her tongue……What’s with that tongue: who does she think she is, Miley Cyrus?
