Miss Piggy snuggles up to Jon Hamm, Michael Fassbender and more on the BAFTA red carpet


As promised, Miss Piggy glammed herself up for the purpose of conducting celebrity interviews at the BAFTAs on Sunday. And as expected, the edited down, online-only video of Piggy’s “red carpet show” would have been far better if it were uncut, uncensored and a half-hour long.

Still, the nearly eight-minute clip contains a few Muppety delights.

Among them: Jon Hamm implying that he and Miss Piggy have a lot in common because “my last name is Hamm”; Piggy making plans to star in a buddy movie with Jessica Chastain; her confession to Michael Fassbender that she intends to see “Shame” with Kermit because “it could get things kinda steamy”; Jonah Hill demanding a Piggy kiss; and the posing of this hard-hitting question to Daniel Radcliffe: “You got rid of that scar. Who’s your plastic surgeon?”

Watch below.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
