Miss Piggy is so funny to interview, in one instance she’s so into character, I mean, you have to understand you are interviewing Miss Piggy an actress who does movies. Muppets Most wanted is the next movie that she is STARING in. Of course, when dealing with Miss Piggy you must understand she is the CENTER of attention at all times. Now the other thing is she is very good at being vague about the movie. For example, she’s in the movie with Kermit and Constantine who happens to be Kermit’s look alike. In the movie she’s tricked into believing that Constantine is Kermit, but when asked about it, she had no idea what we were talking about. (It could also be that we interviewed her on the first night that filming began).
Q : Is Piggy fooled by Constantine?
MISS PIGGY : I’m sorry. First you mention these guy, Walter. I really don’t know who this Constantine character is. Who is that?
Q : He looks like Kermit?
MISS PIGGY : What? You’re kidding me. Looks exactly like Kermit, huh? Two frogs. That could get interesting.
Q : Can you handle two Kermits?
MISS PIGGY : I could handle a whole dozen of them. But I don’t think they could handle one muai.
I wasn’t sure what to think, but I do love chatting with Miss Piggy. Here is the rest of the interview.
Q : What are you wearing?
MISS PIGGY : This is called a dress.
MISS PIGGY : Vivian Westwood has made some wonderful outfits for muah for my new movie. You do know that I have a new movie coming out.
MISS PIGGY : As soon as we finish making it. That’s what we’re here doing tonight. We’re finishing making my movie.
Q : How do you like working with Walter?
MISS PIGGY : Who?
Q : He said you didn’t know his name.
MISS PIGGY : The coffee boy, yes. Yes, I suppose he’s all right. You know, he messes up my coffee order all the time but, you know, it’ll, it’ll do.
Q : He saves Kermit.
MISS PIGGY : Really? He saves Kermit. What does he save Kermit from? Me? Is that what he said? It might be time to get a new coffee boy.
Her relationship with Walter is minimal. You know she only has eyes for Kermit.
Q : Do you have action sequences?
MISS PIGGY : Oh, yes it is a very, uh, it is a very, uh, active movie. Yeah, sure, whatever. I’m gonna call it active movie and I do all of my own stunts, yes, yes.
Q : Any favorites?
MISS PIGGY : Let’s see the stunt — let’s see I love, I love the stunts where I, uh, I put on a beautiful white gown and I walk, I walk down an aisle. That, that is a very active scene.
Q : Who’s waiting for you at the end of the isle?
MISS PIGGY : What do you think?
Q : Kermit said it’s not what it seems.
MISS PIGGY : Come on, who do you think? Who do you think? Well, you know, I, I, I’m — I do have, uh, I do get to do a little karate.
Q : During the wedding scene?
MISS PIGGY : Naturally. No, I don’t even know what you’re talking about. Wedding scene? Who’s wedding scene? I didn’t. [LAUGHS].
Q : Which was your favorite country to visit?
MISS PIGGY : Uh, yeah, yeah. We shot the whole movie in a month. Yeah, I was told we were — this movie was going to take us all across Europe, to Paris, to Madrid, to Germany. I didn’t see anything outside of London. Don’t get me wrong. I love London. Love Londoners. That’s what you call people who live in London but it was, it was cold there. It was cold the whole time we shot and I think I would have loved going to Madrid for just a weekend.
Q : What’s your secret to looking so youthful?
MISS PIGGY : Oh, let me tell you all my secrets. I’m not telling you my secrets ‘cause they won’t be secrets now would they? No, no.
Q : Kermit said you sing six songs.
MISS PIGGY : That’s not my secret.
Q : Can you tell us about your songs?
MISS PIGGY : It’s, it’s true. I do sing, I do sing a number of songs in this movie. Uh, I’m actually very excited about a song that I sing that [SOUNDS LIKE: Britten Kinsey] wrote just for muah. I was his muse.
Q : How is it working with Tina Fey?
MISS PIGGY : Tina Fey. Tina Fey. I don’t know you have to ask Kermit. He worked with her most.
Q : How did you feel about that?
MISS PIGGY : I’m a confident woman. I had no problem with Kermit working with her. He did work with, uh, he had to do all his scenes in a green screen anyways.
Q : Who was your favorite guest star?
MISS PIGGY : It kind of depends. It kind of depends. Let’s see. Uh, Ricky Gervais. He’s, uh, he’s as very funny man and he’s probably one of the best, uh, extras I’ve ever worked with.
Q : Tell me about your sense of style. I hear you’ve had multiple wardrobe changes.
MISS PIGGY : I do, I do. Like I said Vivian Westwood designed a number of outfits for muah for this movie and, uh, and, uh, and, but, I have — I have so many outfits in this movie. Sometimes I change outfits in the middle of, in the middle of a scene. Sometimes I’m in the middle of a shot. I don’t know how that happens. I just, I just — I’m wearing one dress. I look up, I say a line, I look down again, I’m wearing something completely different.
