During that interview with Miss Piggy, I also had the chance to sit down and talk to Kermit the Frog. He’s much more level headed than Miss Piggy and wanted to know about my daughter Zoe, which thrilled me to death when he asked me what her favorite color was. In case you guys don’t know which you should because I talk about Zoe all the time, her favorite color is any shade of purple, lavender just like Miss Piggy is what she would probably say today.
Here are the rest of the highlights from the interview with Kermit.
Q : So what were you doing all these years before you started production on this last movie?
Oh, lots of stuff. You know, it’s been, it’s been quite a few years since we’ve done a big movie. You know, we haven’t done that in a long time but, uh, we’ve done lots of other stuff that we can talk about. We just thought we were trying to come back to the big screen. We did do the Bohemian Rhapsody so we’ve been together.
Q : Do you find it’s easier to be green, now?
Before I give you his response, you’ve all heard of The Rainbow connection and his song about It isn’t easy being green right. He’s a great singer and one of the best I know at expressing his feelings. So if you hvaen’t seen Being Green, then here it is. It’s not Easy being Green!
I think so. It’s taken on all these new meanings. When I said that originally, when I sang that song it was about being accepted in the world and these days it’s a lot more about the environment I think, you know. People are kind of taking it to mean that. But, uh, I think it’s just about being comfortable in your own skin. And It can be tough especially in Hollywood so you have to make your place in the film industry.
Q : How did you like your new costars?
Oh, wonderful. It was wonderful working with Jason. You know, Jason actually wrote this thing to begin with and it went through about 17 thousand rewrites but he’s the guy who wanted to make this movie with us.
When asked about children, he said they’re a big responsibility and then Miss Piggy mentioned something about wanting some and well he changed the subject as quickly as he possibly could.
