Miss Piggy To Host BAFTA Awards: Muppet Will Interview George Clooney, Brad Pitt And More
Watch out, Meryl Streep: Miss Piggy will be the one in the spotlight at this year's BAFTA Awards.
Everyone's favorite high-maintenance muppet will be commanding the red carpet at the British awards show, and she promises to get all the dirt on the hottest names in Hollywood.
"Imagine the likes of George Clooney, Dujardin, Fassbender, Oldman and Pitt achieving the very pinnacle of their careers -- being interviewed by the one and only moi!" Piggy said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Naturally I will be asking questions that only moi would dare to ask."
As for the stars' significant others, Piggy doesn't want much to do with them -- especially if they're former wrestlers like Clooney's girlfriend Stacy Keibler.
"I don't wrestle girlfriends. No," the muppet said. "However, if George wants to wrestle, bring it on! Best two out of three falls? Winner gets a dinner?"
This isn't the first honor the muppets have received in recent weeks. Jason Segel, co-writer and star of 2011's "The Muppets," was named Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man Of The Year by the university's Hasty Pudding Theatrical drama troupe on Friday night. Naturally, he made Piggy proud by showing up in a hot pink bra stuffed with muppets.
