Dreams do come true!
Perez was very very lucky to be invited to set of the new Muppets movie, where not only was he given a private tour but also had the very rare privilege to interview icon of stage and screen, Miss Piggy!!!

Watch the interview in full above!
Perez Hilton: You havent made a movie in a while.
Miss Piggy: Yes, it has been a long time.
Perez Hilton: Are you excited, are you nervous?
Miss Piggy: Yes, I'm very excited. I'm very excited to be sharing a little bit of Moi with my public, my fans. It has been a long time.
Perez Hilton: And you’re back together with all your friends? Kermit’s in the movie?
Miss Piggy: Yes, yes Kermie is in the movie.
Perez Hilton: You know Kermit went out on a date with a good friend of mine, Lady GaGa not that long ago. You –
Miss Piggy: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I think you’re reading those tabloid papers. They’re just full of lies, lies, lies, lies.
Perez Hilton: You don’t like to talk about that?
Miss Piggy: No, no I don’t talk about lies. I talk about truth.
Perez Hilton: Truth.
Miss Piggy: Truth and reality.
Perez Hilton: Okay. Well actually speaking about that, something I do want to talk to you about is you know some people have said some not so nice things about you in the past, especially –
Miss Piggy: What, who, who, where? Which one of you? Huh?
Perez Hilton: Well, you know, people have said things about you maybe being plus sized. Has that been difficult for you?
Miss Piggy: You’re kidding me, right? You’re kidding me.
Perez Hilton: I'm a –
Miss Piggy: Plus sized? Look at moi, look at moi. I am petite if even that. Please. No in the movie though it is a stretch. I do [watch above for scoop].
Perez Hilton: Oh, that's a good scoop.
Miss Piggy: But that does not mean that I am plus sized.
Perez Hilton: But if somebody is, that's a good thing. Everybody is different sizes.
Miss Piggy: Of course that it's true, that is true. Everybody is beautiful in their own way, just not as beautiful as moi.
Perez Hilton: And you know you’re different from everybody else too and maybe there's some young kids watching this who might feel different and they’re in school, and people are saying no so nice things about them. So do you have any message you'd like to tell them?
Miss Piggy: Yes, yes. You’re beautiful, you are beautiful. Everybody is beautiful, everybody is special in their own way and you should be proud of who you are.
