Miss Piggy is back at the box office, starring in the highly anticipated Muppets Most Wanted film, in theaters March 21. In the flick, Miss Piggy and the rest of the Muppet gang get wrapped up in a jewel-heist, led by a Kermit the Front look-alike. But, there’s more to this loved character than just her film roles.

The actress has won over audiences on the big and small screen for the last 30 years and ET is breaking down 5 things you may not have known about Kermit's other half.

Number five: her real name isn't Miss Piggy, during an episode of The Muppet Show, Piggy tells guest star Avery Schreiber that her name is short for "Pigathius", from the Greek meaning "river of passion."

Number four: she's not only just an actress, Miss Piggy is also a designer. She revealed in March that she will be debuting her new lifestyle brand, Moi, on QVC and ever has a commercial.

Number three: you've seen Piggy throw down her karate skills but did you know that she is also quite musical. She can play the trumpet, kazoo, tap dance and even ride a motorcycle.
