Miss Piggy reveals Botox habit: "There's hardly a single expression I can make"

Filed under: Beauty

Miss Piggy has revealed that her youthful good looks - largely unchanged since her first appearance as one of the Muppets in the mid-1970s - are the result of a formidable Botox habit.



During a segment on Anderson Cooper's chatshow which will air in the US tonight (15 March) Miss Piggy confessed that her previous admission "I'm 99% Botox" might have been "underestimating it".

"There's hardly a single expression I can make with this face," revealed the famous diva, putting a gloved hand to her forehead.

The confession came as part of a conversation with Dr Sanjay Gupta who warned other Botox addicts (ones not made from soft fabrics) that potential side effects of the treatment include drooping eyelids and headaches.

We applaud Piggy's honesty but can't help feeling a little sad that even such a confident, karate-kicking lady such as she isn't immune to the industry pressure to look good.

Here's Piggy then and now so you can see the evidence for yourself:

P.S. On the basis of these pictures we're tempted to add cheek fillers and a spray tan to her list of cosmetic enhancements!
