George Clooney?s pig dies post #1  quote:



One of George Clooney?s most important family members passed away on Friday. The Hollywood actor is reportedly mourning his beloved bed-partner, Max.

The news was confirmed by the actor?s publicist, Stan Rosenfield. ?Max, like any pet, became a member of the family,? Rosenfield said. ?He was a big pig, as pigs go. I can?t tell you how much he weighed.

Max, who weighted approximately 300lb, was Clooney?s pet over the last 18 years. The two were so close they even shared the same bed. "Usually, he sleeps on the foot of my bed, but he's gotten so fat in the last year," Clooney told 60 Minutes last February.

Max died peacefully on Friday of ?natural causes? but he was suffering with arthritis and partly blind. The animal lived a nice long life in pig years and according to Richard Slayton from pigs4ever.com, "I can tell you any pig that lives over the age of 12, the owner knows what he's doing and is taking care of it. Obviously, Mr. Clooney did a very good job, and probably loved that pig very much."

The actor was away promoting his most recent movie, ?The Good German.?

"He just died, like an hour ago," Clooney told 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."

The pig can now rest in peace knowing that his owner has no plans of replacing him with another pet. "I think Max covered all my pig needs," Clooney said.

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

Max became Clooney?s pet while he was living with actress Kelly Preston and when the pair split, he asked for the pig. Since, the world?s sexiest man shared his home and things with the pig accompanied Clooney on film sets.

He even credited the pig with saving his life by waking him up before an earthquake. He said: "About three minutes before, Max woke me up and kept nudging me, like he was trying to warn me. That's how smart he is."

The actor joked he had enjoyed "the longest relationship of my life" with the animal.

The porker frequently made cameos in interviews, mostly because visitors had to step over the huge animal before entering Clooney's house. "Max, the star," Clooney says, a bit wistfully.

Earlier this year Clooney took the pig for a flight in John Travolta's private jet, declaring afterwards that Max "absolutely loved it".

In 2001 Max made headlines by getting seriously injured after a friend of the ?Syriana? Oscar winner ran him over in the dark. But he survived for another five years.

"When we first saw Max, he was a cute little Vietnamese potbellied pig," Clooney's father, newsman Nick Clooney, wrote in the Cincinnati Post last January. "Those who fostered the adoption neglected to tell George that Max would one day be the size of a linebacker with an appetite to match."

I didn't know he was with Kelly Preston before. That's John Travolta's wife.

Yeah I did. Comedy. I can imagine it doesn't take too much for him to get s-faced. He's a little fella.

But still, you're going on national television where millions of housewives are going to spill their mid-morning chablis on the rug because you're all pissed acting a fool. Unless he just wanted some press. Maybe missed the spotlight some.

Dom Deluise? That was more of a less dominatrix style Abbot & Costello. Reynolds and Deluise on The Tonight Show was always excellent.

Poor Divito. Clooney hangs out with the cool people like Pitt and Garcia on the Oceans movies, and dont' invite the fat little pudge along.


Good enough to drink with, but not good enough for an Ocean's movie.

I think baby pigs are so adorable. but once they get bigger, i'm good, thanks.
18 years, that's crazy. Poor George Clooney. If he needs another pet, I'll wander around his house and let him pet me all he wants.

who said that?

If he was still the long hair dude from Facts Of Life or the toolbox on Roseanne you wouldn't even notice him. You're all about the fame. Sad.

Was Clooney in R of the KT? I saw it as a child, but had the brains to never ever watch it again.

That's what IMDB says. Could have been just a bit part.

Never seen the movie myself. I hate tomatos. And killer ones? Get outta here.

All I remember is the film itself sucked. I was around 8 or 9 or so, and didn't have that high of a standard when it came to video quality. That movie had worse production values than a made for t.v. Sitcom. I guess there is no made for movie sitcom, so whatever.

And the sound was pathetic. Just a bad bad poorly done flick.


It was mildly funny though.

It looked like one of those funny cheeseball comedy-horror flicks, my parents never rented it or else I'm sure I would have seen it.
