To interview the indomitable Miss Piggy, who better than her most recent costar, Tina Fey? The ladies share the bill on Muppets Most Wanted, out March 21. Here they are, hamming it up:
Tina How do you define your style?
Piggy I begin with who I am: Diva. Star. Frog bait. Then I embellish it with the best of everything from the world’s finest designers, throw in a soupçon of je ne sais quoi, a dash of joie de vivre, and voilà … moi!
Tina What advice do you give moms looking to raise glamorous children?
Piggy Be glamorous yourself and they will be glamorous too. They may rebel against your fabulosity at first. But eventually they’ll come to appreciate your elegance … and then want to borrow your jewelry!
Tina What is the one thing you couldn’t live without?
Piggy Chocolate … No, wait …Kermit … No, maybe it is chocolate. Hey, I know! Let’s count Kermit dipped in chocolate as one thing.
Tina So, how’s this interview going?
Piggy Marvelous! You’re a natural interviewer. If you ever want to give up this whole “struggling actress” thing, you could do well in TV news.
Tina Do you have any baby names chosen for future frog-pig offspring?
Piggy Kermit for a boy. Piggy for a girl. And if we have more, we’ll just keep adding Roman numerals after their names, like the Super Bowl.
Tina What is your earliest childhood memory?
Piggy Mud. But I’ve promised to never talk about that…unless, of course, someone wants to offer me an obscene amount of money for the book and movie rights.
Tina What’s one famous movie role you wish you could have played?
Piggy Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind. When she says, “As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again,” I was so inspired that, since that day, I have never been hungry again.
Tina Has your celebrity feud with all of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills been resolved?
Piggy Hold on! Moi is having a celebrity feud with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? No one told me this! It was probably my publicist’s idea. (I’m sure this happens to you all the time too. Your publicist just starts a celebrity feud with someone like, say, Amy Poehler. Then the next time you see Amy…POW!…she pops you right in the kisser and you don’t have a clue why.) As for moi’s feud with the RHBH, I assure you that it has been completely resolved…unless they agree for me to be a semi-regular on the show next season.
