I have been reading about Max for years, and I am so sad for George. Max was a great friend to him.

RIP, MAX the pig. George was SO attached to his pig--he always tried to talk about him in interviews. AND, that relationship lasted 18 years--whereas, George's relationships with humans tend not to fare as well.

My deepest sympathies go out to George. Losing a beloved pet is always tough. If he needs a shoulder to cry on, I am more than willing to give him one! Call me, George!

What a bummer! I always thought it was pretty cool that the hottest guy in Hollywood would rather chill with his pig than get annoyingly and permanently involved with some starlett. (sniffle) I really liked the fact that a pig was part of one of my favorite movie stars lives. At least Max had, I'm sure, a FABULOUS life.
