London - The organisers of the BAFTA film awards in Britain have unveiled Miss Piggy as one of the show's hosts, promising spiky questions for Hollywood luminaries George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
The glamorous pink star of The Muppets will be the red carpet host of the British Academy Film Awards 2012 on Sunday, the organisers said on Monday.
She is honing her flirting skills as she prepares to meet Best Actor nominees Clooney, Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Gary Oldman and The Artist star Jean Dujardin at the Royal Opera House in London.
Bout on the red carpet
"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?"
