Have you ever fallen in love with a frog? Tina Fey has! The actress claims there was a love triangle between her, Miss Piggy, and Kermit the Frog on the Muppets Most Wanted set.
Tina Fey’s ‘Muppet’ Love Triangle
On Monday, March 17, Tina Fey, 43, stopped by Live! with Kelly and Michael to discuss her latest film, Muppets Most Wanted. During her interview, the actress made a shocking confession — she totally fell for Kermit the Frog while filming with him!
“I have to say, I understand now why movie stars have onset romances. I get it,” Tina joked on the March 17 episode of Live!. “You spend all day looking into Kermit’s little ping pong ball eyes, I fell in love with him. I get the whole Mr. & Mrs. Smith of it all.”
Tina also shared that even though her love for Kermit is ‘undying,’ she would never betray Miss Piggy by going after her froggy boyfriend like that.
“Obviously, Kermit is very committed to Ms. Piggy,” Tina explained. ” Also, he doesn’t always have legs or a lower torso, so that makes it problematic. But my love for him is undying.”
Maybe one day you’ll get your chance, Tina!
Tina Thinks ‘Muppets’ Are ‘Fantastic’ Performers
During another interview, Tina also admitted that working with The Muppets was no different than working with human actors. In fact, she enjoyed acting with puppets more than she does with humans!
“You really are performing with them. They’re right there with you,” Tina shared with CBS. “They are fantastic performers. They really give you stuff to play off of. If you improvise, they are right there with you.”
It sounds like Tina really had a blast making Muppets Most Wanted!
