The World's Sexiest Man can do without a leading lady.

But it may be more difficult for George Clooney to deal with the loss of his prized pig.

Indeed, Max, the nearly 300-pound potbellied pig who lived with Clooney in the actor's Hollywood Hills home, has died. The pair had been pals for 18 years.

"He just died, like an hour ago," Clooney told USA Today over the weekend. "He was as old a pig as the vets had ever seen. I was really surprised because he's been a big part of my life."

The actor and the hog even shared the same bed sometimes, causing women from Ellen Barkin to Julia Roberts to be jealous of the porker.

The actor was out of town promoting his latest film, The Good German, when Max passed away. There was no comment from Kendra Jade on the sad event.

"It has been a bad year for my pets," Clooney said "I had a bulldog that died this year, too. It's strange how animals become a bit part of your family. They really become a big issue with you."

The actor insisted no replacement pig could ever take Max's place. Lindsay Lohan, meanwhile, is reportedly considering turning to hogs once her affair with microphones is over.
