RIP: Max, age 19
George Clooney's beloved potbelly pig Max has died, Clooney's publicist said. He was 19.
Max, who lived at Clooney's Hollywood Hills home, died 'peacefully' of natural causes on Friday, Clooney's publicist, Stan Rosenfield, said by phone Monday.
'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.'
The Oscar-winning actor, 45, who owned the hog for 18 years and reportedly once said the porker was his longest relationship, told USA Today, 'I was really surprised, because he's been a big part of my life.'
