Hollywood stars George Clooney and Brad Pitt are set to face a grilling from Miss Piggy on the red carpet at the BAFTA film awards in Britain, it was announced Monday.
The glamorous pink star of The Muppets will question the stars as they arrive at the British Academy Film Awards 2012 on Sunday.
"Imagine the likes of Clooney, Dujardin, Fassbender, Oldman and Pitt achieving the very pinnacle of their careers by getting a chance to speak with the one and only moi -- Miss Piggy," she said.
"Naturally, I will be asking questions that only moi would dare to ask."
The bejewelled pig even challenged The Descendants star Clooney -- who is currently dating former wrestler Stacy Keibler -- to a bout on the red carpet.
Miss Piggy declared: "I don't wrestle girlfriends. However, if George wants to wrestle, bring it on. Best two out of three falls? Winner gets a dinner?"
She is no stranger to film awards shows, having appeared with Muppets co-star Kermit at the 1982 Oscars ceremony, and she popped up again alongside Whoopi Goldberg at the Oscars in 1996.
