How I Met Your Muppet

GQ’s Lauren Bans cuts through the crap to deliver a serious interview with Muppet rebooter Jason Segel and his legendary leading man. Click here to read all of it.

It’s been twelve years since Kermit’s last big-screen movie. People were starting to wonder if he’d had a breakdown.
Kermit: You know, it’s a funny thing. It may have been twelve years in people years, but for frogs that’s only about eight months.

Jason Segel: It was a short hiatus for you, basically.

Kermit: Plus, a lot of my fans actually live under rocks.

GQ: Speaking of living on a different timescale, are you immortal?
Kermit: I don’t think so!

Jason Segel: I must say, though, I understand her question, because you’re looking just as good as you did twenty years ago. You’re holding up fantastically.

GQ: Amen. Botox?
Kermit: No, no, I haven’t had any work done, exactly. It’s just good clean swamp living. It’s one of those places where you can get away from it all.
