Ashley Jensen and Matt Lucas - Gnomeo & Juliet Interview

Comedic actress Ashley Jensen is used to being seen on TV ("Extras," "Ugly Betty") and film projects, but in the new 3D animated comedy Gnomeo & Juliet, she lends her voice to an adorable and sassy frog named Nanette. Matt Lucas—last seen as Tweedledee and Tweedledum in Alice in Wonderland—plays a gnome named Benny who is set on getting some hardcore revenge. The film is loosely based on Shakespeare's classic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet—but this time we're dealing with forbidden love between feuding garden gnomes!

Tribute caught up with Ashley Jensen and Matt Lucas in London, England to discuss the film, working as voice over actors for rock legend Sir Elton John, and then they proceeded to have an impromptu sing along.
