Hunky GEORGE CLOONEY spent his holidays cuddling up to a hairy, smelling monster - his pot-bellied pig MAX.
The Hollywood heart-throb works so hard and spends so much time travelling around the world that his pig revels in spending quality time with his gorgeous owner.
But Clooney feels Christmas can be a very stressful time for his farm friend, as a lot of ham is consumed around the world.
He admits, "I still have my pig, I've had him for 13 years. He's about 160 pounds (72.5 kilograms), he's a good sized pig. "But he gets nervous round the holiday season, if he misbehaves, I just stick an apple in his mouth."
