If anyone can do the voice behind America’s favorite cat, it’s Aubrey Plaza! She spills all the details about voicing Grumpy Cat for her first big film.
Tell us about why you wanted to be the person behind the beloved voice of Grumpy Cat?
I wanted to do it because I read the script, and it made me laugh. The whole idea of it—of attempting to voice this famous grumpy cat for a Lifetime Christmas movie—seemed insane in just the right way. Somehow, I have created a persona that allows for this type of opportunity, and I just wanted to say yes.
What can you tell us about the plot of Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever?
Not much. I have no idea what is going on in this movie. It’s like a roller coaster ride through a magical Christmas Lifetime universe that is narrated by an unhappy cat. Grumpy comments on the plot the entire movie, and I still can’t tell you what it’s about. All I can say is that it’s really funny, and there are amazing characters… and it stars a cat! You have to see it. More than once!
Even though this film deals with the worst Christmas ever, what Christmas in your life has been the best?
The one when I was a child and didn’t know that Santa wasn’t real.
What holiday film do you love to watch every year?
Home Alone and Meet Me in St Louis.
Last but not least, what holiday treat do you enjoy most on Christmas morning?
My mother makes cinnamon buns… the cheap kind with the frosting. So good!
Watch Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever on November 29 at 8/7c only on Lifetime.
