The two actors seem to have a close relationship on and off screen. There have been reports that the two are officially dating. Jason jokingly explains, “We arrived together, this morning, but that was just to save money.”

Miss Piggy follows up by saying, “We don’t mind the gossip and the rumors. They’re not true.”

It took Jason four years to write “The Muppets” movie. He says, “It was the first thing I wrote after “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” Which seemed like a left turn, but it’s been my dream since I was a little kid to work with Miss Piggy, obviously.”

The infamous relationship between Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy has always been Jason’s top priority for making this movie. He explains, “I never told Piggy this, but my secret goal was to reunite Kermit and Piggy. It’s been a while. I wanted to get them on the same stage so they could finally talk things out.”

The new Disney movie has a mixture of adventure, love, and action. Jason says, “The story is about some super muppet fans. We go to LA to meet the muppets and to see the muppet theater, and we find out that the muppets have disbanded for various professional reasons, and that their studio is going to be torn down to drill for oil, played by an evil oil barren, Academy award winner, Chris Cooper.”

Jason continues to say, “And Amy Adams comes along with me. She plays my fiance, and we set out to find all the muppets and get them back together to put on a show to raise enough money to save the studio.”

Facebook Announces Major Changes

Jason believes in this movie so much that he’s on a mission to make “The Muppets” the most popular actors to ever hit the web. He says, “I don’t know how the Facebook works, but I think, with the exception of the muppets, the only thing people love more is the internet. And so combining them, that seems to be a power move.”

Yes, it’s true, the “I Love You, Man” star doesn’t have a Facebook, and there’s a reason for that. He explains, “I’m scared of the internet. I really am. I’ll tell you why. Yeah, because it’s supposed to be this tool to reconnect with people. The reason I don’t talk to you is because I didn’t like you. It’s not because I can’t find you.”
