Just in time for the summer season comes words of beauty advice from one of Hollywood's most enduring stars.
"Do you want me to give you my best beauty secrets?" says the familiar high-pitched voice of Miss Piggy. "First, I always try to avoid the sun because pink skin is very delicate. I don't so much burn as I bake."
Of course, Piggy can't have Botox or Fillers, and she still has to look good on the big screen. Her recent film, "The Muppets" is out on DVD and a sequel is in the works. I sat down with the pink princess in Hollywood for some legendary beauty talk.
Q: I have to admit, I feel a bit star struck in your presence.
A: "You can be star stuck with me, dear. I do have a movie sequel in the works and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."
Q: We don't want to reveal your age, which isn't polite. But we must ask if you have a problem with becoming a midlifer?
A: "I don't have a problem with aging. I decided a long time ago, I was simply not going to age. Getting older is not for me. It may be too late for you. I locked it in at age 21."
Q: Miss Piggy, I'm wounded!
A: "Honestly, I would advise anyone just starting out with the whole aging thing to just stop. Put an end to it. Just don't do it and stay young forever."
Q: Since this is a style column can you reveal your very best beauty secret?
A: ""The first thing is you don't have to go with the hair you've got. Okay? Wigs are totally fine. And it's much easier to wash your hair when you can take it off and just put it in the sink."
Q: Do you worry about fine lines and wrinkles?
A: "Oh no, not really. I decided a long time ago I was simply not going to get fine lines and wrinkles. It's mind over wrinkles."
Q: How do you define beauty?
A: "I've always heard, 'You're beautiful, Miss Piggy.' It's a wonderful compliment. For me beauty is being happy with who you are. That's the most important thing. Be happy with the way you look and the person you are. Being beautiful and having good looks doesn't hurt either."
Q: Let's move on to diet secrets. How do you stay so amazingly curvy?
A: "I'd like to say that love keeps me curvy beautiful. Love keeps me young. Kermit also has me drinking swamp water. You know men. They wine and dine you."
Q: Are you worried about bathing suit season?
A: "No, I don't worry about it. I try to stay out of the sun. I also know that it's good for my image to be seen out and about in a skimpy bathing suit. I'm very much looking forward to the paparazzi snapping a photo or millions of photos of me in my swimsuit."
Q: Do you think you looked gorgeous in the recent Muppet film?
A: "I looked fabulous in it and I was fabulous in it. I truly did deserve to win an Oscar. Why wasn't I nominated? Perhaps the Academy just has something against pig actors. You think back to all the great pig performances and not a single one was recognized. Me? Babe? Nothing! I'm actually going to start my Oscar campaign for the next Academy Awards show. I'm going to kick if off now even thought I don't have a movie."
Q: Not to delve into your personal life, but will Kermit ever commit?
A: "I've just about had it with him. I am considering kicking him to the curb. You know anyone who wants a used frog? I do love him and I really don't want to try online dating. But get with the program, frog! Put a ring on it!"
Q: Why don't you just ask Kermie to marry you?
A: "Oh my gosh, I never thought of it."
Q: Would you ever consider dating George Clooney or any other eligible bachelor in Hollywood?
A: "There are many other cute guys out there. I could see moi and Brad Pitt doing movies together and maybe hitting it off. Who knows what will happen? I know that would make Kermit very jealous and perhaps he would commit to me, thank you very much."
Q: Have you picked out a wedding dress?
A: "Of course, I've had the dress for years. It's probably about time for me to trade in that dress. It's yellow now."
Q: Are you excited about a sequel to the Muppet film?
A: "I'm very excited. I will be getting final cut on the next movie and points from dollar one. The studio does not know this yet, but it's true. I will also get top billing. Absolutely top billing. I have to have a little chat with the producers about that one."
