From The Sun UK - Muppets Puppeteers are 'Brad and Angelina' of Industry

Hollywood A-listers ... Miss Piggy and Kermit

From The Sun in the UK:
By GORDON SMART, Showbiz Editor

KERMIT and MISS PIGGY have always been Hollywood A-listers.
But The Muppets aren’t the only divas – their puppeteers are regarded as the BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE of their industry.

They have their own Winnebago and chauffeur-driven car and food requests.

A source said: “The puppeteers are big stars in their own right. The movie has a big budget so bosses can more than cater for their demands.”

A personal masseuse has been allocated to each puppeteer to ensure they don’t get cramp in their hands.

The Muppets... Again! is currently being shot in London and is scheduled for release next year.

RICKY GERVAIS is also starring in the movie. If he had known a masseuse was on hand he might have requested one.

My Thoughts:

If this is true, I for one have no issue with this at all! In fact I say it is about time the Muppeteers got the same treatment most Hollywood celebrities 'demand'. Both Eric and Steve and all the other Muppeteers deserve such treatment, even more so than most of the so-called Hollywood celebrities of today!

"This is hysterical! Completely & utterly false, but hysterical".

"Peter Linz posted this and now I must as well. As they say here in London, "rubbish" (yet hilarious)".
