Clooney's Pig RIP

Clooney's Pig RIP

George has often talked about the longest relationship he's ever had and it's with his pet pig Max. His faithful companion of 18 years died this weekend while George was out of town promoting The Good German. However, we can all be comforted by the fact that Max led a long happy life. At 18 years of age, his vet said that Max was the oldest pig he had ever seen. Here's more:

"He just died, like an hour ago," PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive, 45, tells USA Today.

"He was as old a pig as the vets had ever seen. I was really surprised, because he's been a big part of my life," says Clooney, who even sometimes shared the same bed with his pet.

"It has been a bad year for my pets," Clooney tells the newspaper. "I had a bulldog that died this year, too. It's strange how animals become a bit part of your family. They really become a big issue with you."

The pig, in fact, was sometimes featured in interviews with Clooney, who called him "Max, the star."

As for finding a successor, "No," Clooney insists. "I think Max covered all my pig needs."

Our thoughts are with you George. Rest in peace, Max. More pics of Mr. Clooney looking hot as always at The Good German premiere last Friday night, so

I never got the whole pig deal. I think it was a guise to keep women away.

Damn, that sucks :( I know he loved that pig just like a child. How sad for him. George just seems like one of the nicest guys out there. Oh, and I used to watch his dad on Channel 5 (and Jerry Springer!) in Cincinnati when I was little :)

I have two dogs and I don't know how I'm going to cope when they inevitably die. They really do become just another member of the family, except they're the most spoiled (well, my dogs are anyways) On another note, I had no idea George Clooney had a pig! That must be cool ...

Sorry about your sweet pet pig George! I know you loved him. :( George is straight and has some Italian blood in him I think to answer the previous questions.

George, if you're reading this and you feel lonely, give me a call. I may not be a quadroped with a curly tail and a snout, but I'm cuddly and lazy and I can eat a LOT when I want to. :WINK::@)

I'm sorry to ask this question. But, is George Clooney white, or is he of mixed race like Mariah Carey? God, he's so hot!

Is he gay? I don't care if he is and find him beautiful none the less, but I am curious to know. Anyone know? *nance*
