One of the most fascinating interviews I have ever had the opportunity to partake in has to be The Muppets. Not all of them… but we did sit down and talk with Kermit, Miss Piggy and Constantine from Muppets Most Wanted. I cannot explain how incredible this was for me.
Kermit, Miss Piggy and Constantine
After being carried in by men (we were all forewarned this would happen to avoid any surprises), the Muppets did apologize and said it was the only way for them to get into the room. I have to admit, I wish I had men carrying me around some days as well. That would be all kinds of amazing! But, back to our interview.
You know that there always needs to be an ice breaker, right? Our group of bloggers took no time to dive right in and get to the questions our fans wanted answered. The #1 question? Boxers or briefs from Kermit and Constantine? What do you think? Do you have a guess?
Well, here it is. Kermit says that he prefers boxers even though he looks ridiculous. As for Constantine, he likes to go “free and easy.” So, if you had any desire to know, there you have it.
Miss Piggy did touch on how she was able to stay so youthful all these years in the video above. Her answer was quite alarming and, well, I hope it works as well for me as it did for her. Oh… her secret?
And even though Kermit was brave enough to ask, I simply have to believe her. I mean, the truth is in her flawless skin and ageless features. Therefore, I think I am going to try Miss Piggy’s secrets and see how well they fair for me. What’s to lose? Oh, and Kermit’s answer to staying timeless? They don’t wear watches. Who knew it could be that easy!
Of course, I could never be as fabulous as Miss Piggy. No one can. Not even Joan Rivers. Which, as a matter of fact, Miss Piggy did want to point out that she won the feud with Joan Rivers after the recent “cake incident.” Who am I to question her? And Joan Rivers should have never auditioned for Miss Piggy’s role in The Muppet Show.
Speaking of on-screen feuds, getting to see Constantine off the screen allowed us to really learn more about his character. I grew up watching Kermit and Miss Piggy, so the “Evil Frog” was all new to me. A bit stoic and matter-of-fact, he brought a new dynamic to the ever-popular classic duo. There were constant jabs between the trio, but Constantine held his own. Not to mention, when we asked him what he had in mind for the future he discussed possibly blowing up more things or stealing another show. According to Constantine,
it’s easy being… mean.
But know that Constantine is famous, his days as a bad guy may be limited. We talked a bit about his plans for the future and Kermit suggested that he would make a great Hollywood Agent. His skills as kind an extortionist, robber and someone who is just devious, these are the perfect traits for that job.
What surprised you most about Kermit, Miss Piggy or Constantine?
We shared many laughs with Kermit, Miss Piggy and Constantine as we talked. Each one was so true to their character and simply a joy to talk to. I am grateful for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
