Miss Piggy: “I Am An Icon To Many Groups”
submit to reddit

When Miss Piggy was in the studio, George asked the grand dame of the Muppets her opinion on Lean In and Sheryl Sandberg's Ban Bossy movement.

"That's not something that I ever have a problem with," said Miss Piggy, who went on to explain why she doesn't run into problems with others. "Because I just let people know that I know karate. And then they just do what I want. I don't even have to... I just ask."

George also asked Miss Piggy about her relationship to feminism.

"I am an icon to many groups," said Piggy. "But I don't see myself that way. I just wave my own flag and if people identify with moi, through wish fulfillment of course, I mean, nobody can be me."

Miss Piggy's interview with George airs Thursday, March 20 on CBC. Muppets Most Wanted opens in theatres on Thursday, March 20.
