In the Internet age, it’s harder than ever for celebrities to avoid the prying cameras of the paparazzi – and no one knows that better than Miss Piggy.

“Sometimes they get a little bit too close,” the porcine diva told PEOPLE during a recent interview at the Beverly Hilton. “It is not like they catch my bad side, because I don’t have one. So that is never the problem. The problem is being seen with the wrong guy.”

Piggy’s new movie, The Muppets, opened Wednesday, and though it’s brought her back in the spotlight, the star says her promotional tour has been “grueling.”

“I am telling you, I have never worked so hard in my life,” Miss Piggy says.
