Amy Adams talks about her Fozzie impression (Video)
Amy Adams claims her Fozzie impression is so terrible that it belongs on "The Muppets" DVD bloopers.
"I'm so bad at [Muppet impressions]," Adams told OnTheRedCarpet.com at the film's Hollywood premiere. "Did Jason [Segel] tell you to ask? Jason, you're the worst! They asked everybody on-set to do a Fozzie impression and I got the most laughs because mine was the worst. I'm sure it will be on the DVD extras, I let them tape it, it was a bad idea."
The Muppets are a group of puppets the late Jim Henson created in the mid-1950s, which include Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the rowdy "Animal." They starred in several of their own television shows throughout the years and the franchise has also spurred several films, such as "The Muppets Take Manhattan" in 1984, "Muppets from Space" in 1999.
Segel, who stars in the comedy series "How I Met Your Mother," co-wrote the script of the film. "The Muppets" also stars Emily Blunt, Mickey Rooney, British funnyman Ricky Gervais, Charles Grodin and television chef Rachael Ray. Alan Arkin, Mila Kunis, Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris, Katy Perry, Whoopi Goldberg, Wanda Sykes and 2012 Oscars host Billy Crystal are all set to make cameos, among others.
Adams said she was a big fan of the franchise growing up, adding, "Everyone involved in this project has a great amount of love for the Muppets."
And though the actress might not be able to do a Fozzie voice, she has a sweet spot for him in particular.
"I don't have a favorite [Muppet] anymore, it's like picking a favorite child," Adams said, adding, "but growing up, it was Fozzie."
Adams will next appear in Paul Thomas Anderson's controversial new movie, formerly known as "The Master." The actress will play the wife of Phillip Seymour Hoffman's character, Lancaster Dodd, a charismatic intellectual who returns shaken from World War II to form a faith-based organization that begins to catch on in the 1950s.
The actress will also star opposite Henry Cavill, who was picked to portray Clark Kent/Superman in the upcoming Superman reboot, "Man of Steel."
