George Clooney inspired Arnold Schwarzenegger to get a pig

Actor says Clooney's close relationship with his late pig 'Max' convinced him that he should get his own companion.

For 18 years, George Clooney's pig "Max" was big part of the actor's life - witnessing nearly every moment of his rise from Hollywood unknown to A-list star. The Vietnamese black bristled potbellied pig, who passed away in 2006, not only occasionally shared Clooney's bed, but also became something of a star himself on film sets and in interviews with the actor. The love Clooney had for his pig, which he liked to joke was the longest relationship of his life, also made an impression on the people around him - in particular his "Batman and Robin" co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

"I always liked that he was into pigs, he has this little pig that he takes everywhere," Schwarzeneggertold Yahoo Movies while promoting his new film "Sabotage". "So I bought a pig right after that." 
 
"Only thing is I must've bought the wrong one because in no time it was 300 pounds and I could barely lift the son of the gun," he added. 
 
In a column a few years back for the Cincinnati Inquirer, George Clooney's father, Nick, talked a bit about his son's pig - revealing that Max too, quickly became a large family member. 
 
"Those who fostered the adoption," Clooney Sr. wrote, "neglected to tell George that Max would one day be the size of a linebacker with an appetite to match."
 
"When Max is hungry," he added, "he lumbers over to the front door and lies down lengthwise over the welcome mat, completely blocking the entrance. He then grunts and squeals until someone brings him breakfast. George has not required an alarm clock for 17 years."
 
As for Schwarzenegger's pig, nicknamed "Bacon," the former Governor reports that he's doing well, but is currently on a fat farm. 
 
"The only way to get my pig to lose weight is to get him away from my kids, because they kept feeding him and feeding him all the time," he said. 
 
Check out Arnold talking about his pet pig below.

George Clooney convinced Arnold Schwarzenegger to buy a pig

How George Clooney Inspired Arnold Schwarzenegger to Get His Own Pig (Named 'Bacon')

It was an innocuous question about his "Batman & Robin" co-star George Clooney, but it led to one pretty amazing revelation from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

"I always liked that he was into pigs, he has this little pig that he takes everywhere," the bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-governor-turned-actor told Yahoo Movies while promoting "Sabotage," his gritty new DEA actioner. "So I bought a pig right after that."

Go on …

"Only thing is I must've bought the wrong one because in no time it was 300 pounds and I could barely lift the son of the gun."

That's right, the former Mr. Olympia has found something he has trouble lifting.

The story gets better: "His name is Bacon," Schwarzenegger revealed, and "he's on the fat farm right now."

That's also right, there's a fat farm for pigs.

At least Schwarzenegger, who in 2001 was the subject of reports that he had heart valves surgically replaced with those from a pig heart, has a pig-pal like Clooney (whose pig Max passed away in 2006) to call when issues arise with the porcine pet.

"I called George, he said, 'What happened?' I said, 'My pig's belly is touching the ground when it runs around.' He said, 'You're feeding it too much.'"

The former Governator is quick to deflect blame for Bacon's weight issues, though. "The only way to get my pig to lose weight is to get him away from my kids, because they kept feeding him and feeding him all the time."

"Sabotage" opens in theaters Friday.
