Aired on 12/09/2005 | CC tv-pg
While working on Roseanne, George Clooney fell in love with miniature pigs. He was playing a factory boss who had to dodge rats scuttering across the floor. As George tells it on The Oprah Winfrey Show, the producers let loose miniature pigs to stand in for the rats and, well, George wanted one of his own. In 2005, at the time of the interview, the "miniature" Max was 300 pounds. One year later, Max passed away. Watch as George discusses the hog he shared a life with for nearly 20 years.
