Miss Piggy admits to being 99% botoxed: too tweaked or simply lovely?

This is an adorable and highly inspiring story. In recent days, we’ve collectively surveyed the ills of plastic surgery topics ranging from fillers (Ashley Judd), Botox and lifts (Cindy Crawford), and plastic surgery in general (Emmanuelle Beart). Now Miss Piggy (of Muppets fame) has decided to open up a bit on Anderson Cooper’s talk show and discuss her own Botox addiction. What follows is a harrowing (and somewhat heartening) account of one pig’s dependence on a certain cosmetic-enhancing toxin:

Miss Piggy first appeared on The Muppets in 1974, since then the buxom blonde has barely aged a day and remained a youthful piglet with a spring in her trotters, and now RadarOnline.com can reveal her age-defying secret.

“I have at one time said I am 99 percent Botox but that might be underestimating,” Kermit the Frog’s main squeeze revealed to Anderson Cooper on Thursday’s episode of his talk show.

Her fellow guest on the show, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta pointed out that the pink pint-sized star did boast a very immobile look, “That forehead doesn’t move at all does it?” he asked.

“No it doesn’t. There’s hardly a single expression I can make on this face,” confessed the actress and singer, who exuded glamour in a gold dress, pearls and long black gloves.

A concerned Cooper asked Gupta if so many injectables were safe from “a medical standpoint?”

“First of all Miss Piggy, you look beautiful,” gushed Dr. Gupta. “You need absolutely no work whatsoever. I do think it is possible to go overboard when it comes to plastic surgery or even Botox.

“Botox is something that can be safe but one of the potential concerns if you use too much of it you can actually make your eyelids droop, you can cause headaches, you can cause other problems. Luckily it’s temporary. She looks great though,” he added.

Miss Piggy, also known as Piggy Lee, looked flattered by the compliment, although it was hard to tell her frozen face if she was smiling or not. While she has not admitted to ever having more invasive surgery, The Muppets star has been rumored to have had her snout softened with rhinoplasty, her ears pinned back, pig cheek implants and fillers.

The full interview airs on the new episode of Anderson on Thursday, March 15.

Isn’t it refreshing that at least one aging Hollywood starlet can admit her dependence on Botox and will also candidly point out its ill effects? Miss Piggy might not be a role model to many, but she deserves a lot of credit for coming clean on the cause of her (clearly) immobile face. I can only hope that, one day in the near future, she can kick this nasty habit. By the way, here’s a video clip of Miss Piggy’s appearance on The Coop’s show:

In somewhat Muppet-related news, TMZ reports that Courtney Love has accused The Muppets movie of “rape.” Yes, she is perfectly serious and obviously doesn’t realize the gravity of her own words:

Courtney Love believes Kermit the Frog and his gang of Muppet friends “raped” the memory of her late husband Kurt Cobain — by bastardizing Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in their 2011 movie … without her permission.

Courtney says she has the absolute power to approve or nix the use of Kurt’s music for commercial purposes, and she never gave the OK for the 2 companies to use the song for the 2011 Muppets movie.

But there’s another side to this … We’re told Courtney sold off half of her rights to Kurt’s music to a company called Primary Wave Music. And there’s more … Courtney also gave Primary Wave the exclusive right to distribute Nirvana’s entire catalog.

As far as “Smells Like Teen Spirit” goes … not only did Primary Wave approve the use in the Muppet’s movie, they got permission from the two surviving Nirvana members — Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. And Dave is even in the movie.

[From TMZ]

Eh. Courtney has no room to complain on this issue since she’s already sold off the relevant sections of the Nirvana catalog, and I’m sure that Dave and Krist are well accustomed to dealing with her incoherent crap. Ultimately, I’m figuring that Courtney probably talked to TMZ, fired off several tweets about this latest perceived audacity, took a few benzos, and promptly fell asleep, never to remember anything of this incident.

Whatever the case, Miss Piggy should not feel at all slighted by Courtney’s complaints. Furthermore, she should probably lay off the Botox a little bit too. I’ve got a hunch that Kermie loves her just the way she is already.

    This is a really cute story

  2. normades says:

    Careful Bedhead, don’t let her hear you call her “aging”. She’ll karate chop you! Total diva that one ;-)

    • Maguita says:

      Actually, that f-cking pig toned-down her crazy since starting botox. The damn porker used to mistreat her green heartthrob of a husband to no end! Remember how she used to hit him? Abuse him IN FRONT of the camera? Shameless f-cking Swine!

      I for one am absolutely against Miss Piggy quitting the abuse of botox. Botox had made her mellow down, and look a bit more like a lady, and a whole lot less like a bleached-out-over-fake-lashed-and-tacky shrew!

      For Kermit’s sake and well-being, please, Less hog, more patsy.

      Where’s my f-cking coffee! Being a potty mouth this early is good for my damned karate-chopping jaw! :D

      • Celebitchy says:

        I think that moving to Paris and becoming more of her own person really mellowed her out and helped her realize how much Kermie meant to her. She definitely should take anger management classes, though, in order to make sure that her old abusive patterns don’t return now that they’ve reconciled.

      • Maguita says:

        @CB – I did not know she went to anger management classes?? And you say she took those in Paris?

        Looking back at swine history, all that had went to Anger Management classes, by choice or by legal force (Charlie Sheen, Sean Penn, Mel Gibson… to name a few), I never thought those classes actually worked. Imagine my surprise upon learning this…

        Maybe it takes a true pink-hearted piglet to learn from one’s past mistakes, yet one mothereffing of a boar to keep on giving pigs a bad name.

        And p.s. Of course she would LOVE Paris! They are after all more admiring of curvaceous women that North America will ever be!

        Le sigh.

    made my morning!

    Love it.

  5. backwards says:

    Can’t wait for her interview with Anderson.

  6. only1shmoo says:

    I remember being 3 and saying that I wanted to be Miss Piggy when I grew up. She’s always been so glamorous, and now I can say that she’s one of the most honest ladies in Hollywood. Stay beautiful Piggy Lee : )

  7. Jessica says:

    LOL – too cute!!!

  8. Alice Tripp's Ghost says:

    Porcine divine.

  9. lila says:

    99% Botox, and she still looks more natural than the Cracken.

  10. P46J says:

    Of course her beauty is timeless. Now if only she would just marry Kermit and get it over with.

    • Alice Tripp's Ghost says:

      I’ve heard that Yoda is their secret love child.

    • ruddyzookeeper says:

      I’m showing my age perhaps, but didn’t she marry him in the movie “The Muppets Take Manhattan”? The Broadway show(?) scene at the end is a wedding and she tricked him, bringing in a “real” minister. Oh God, why do I know this … And more importantly, why did I share it?

  11. Samigirl says:

    The shock! What’s next? She’s not a natural blonde???

  12. Anon says:

    Looks like a cross between Dolly Parton and a Playboy bunny. I prefer the old Miss Piggy.

  13. lucy2 says:

    This is awesome. I love Miss Piggy.

    LOL at Courtney – come on, there’s no way they released that movie with a song they didn’t get permission for. She’s grasping at (coke) straws.

  14. Zelda says:

    Imagining Miss Piggy with a Lohan/Moss-esque cocaine nose… It would be Gonzo-shaped, no?
    Explains his completely erratic behaviour.

  15. Eleonor says:

    AHA! I was right she has pig cheek implants!!! I also suspect pig boob implants.

  16. DetRiotGirl says:

    YES! I love this! This story made my morning! :)

    I was so excited when the Muppets won an Oscar this year. It was the only award of the night I actually cared about!

  17. Coucou says:

    What’s green and smells like bacon?

    Kermit’s finger.

    (Sorry, i just had to.)

  18. ladybert62 says:

    Oh Ms. Piggy – I LOVE YOU!!

    The Muppets won an Oscar? I didnt know that- HURRAH!! Finally an Oscar that makes sense!!!

  19. mel says:

    Team Ms.Piggy – I love the Muppets…it makes me so nostalgic – makes me want to play Rainbow Connection…sniff….

  20. Cathy says:

    She’s my hero. She does what she wants and says what she wants. She has no qualms about it either. Most Hollywood types wouldn’t be able to get away with what she does.

  21. some bitch says:

    She looks divine.

    (great story, made my day!)

  22. Ravensdaughter says:

    Thank you so much for this story-I love that Coop and Gupta played along!

  23. Nibbi says:

    Probably the best celebrity post ive ever seen on this site. Been my favorite celeb since i too was three.

  24. Jenn says:

    Ms. Piggy is my idol. She takes no crap from anyone.

  25. MJ says:

    Courtney Love is such an idiot. The use of Smells Like Teen Spirit in the movie is a parody, which requires no clearance or licensing.

    I think The Muppets should sue Courtney for stealing Madame Muppet’s face, but then again, that probably falls under the parody exception, too.

  26. Reece says:

    Clearly! She’s also got cheek implants. Definitely a few rhinoplastys in the past.
    Some of those other hollywood actresses need to call her doc.

  27. Ana says:

    Haha I really enjoyed this story and the comments here as well!

    I can’t believe how important she’s gotten, given she’s not “real”! ;)

    I gotta show this to my mom, she loves her, I even tried to buy her a Miss Piggy action figure but they are too expensive!

  28. Alexis says:

    LOL love Miss Piggy and the Muppets.

  29. sup says:

    i see she is becoming more mature, personality-wise, with age. admitting to be 100% botoxed wasn’t something she’d do 20 years ago.

  30. Cinesnatch says:

    Did you notice how she never blinks either? Creepy. But, I’d never say that to her face.

  31. Ramie says:

    I realllly hate the Muppets. I can’t be the only one.

  32. d says:


  33. Stephanie says:

    I love Miss Piggy. This is a cute story. I am probably going to get stoned for saying this, but does anyone else think she bears a slight resemblance to Jennifer Aniston in the top photo?

  34. The Original Mia says:

    I’m a bit disappointed she had to resort to Botox, but to be honest, I didn’t notice. I thought she was aging without help. Her doctor should be commended for his skills.

    Still the classiest pig around. Rock on, Miss Piggy!

  35. sassyspank says:

    bless your heart for posting this!! Made my day:) xoxo

  36. Kim says:

    Really??? Is this what we’ve come to? Talking to Miss Piggy about cosmetic surgery like she is a real person?! God help us!
