|Not a few celebrity animal lovers prefer to have an extraordinary companion to match their extraordinary lifestyle. George Clooney proudly admits that his pot-bellied pig, Max, is his longest-standing relationship. And it would seem the exotic porkers make for good companions, because Monegasque royal Andrea Casiraghi has one, too. Lord Of The Rings star Viggo Mortensen meanwhile keeps a mustang called TJ as a pet. He met the animal on the set of his movie Hidalgo, and was so charmed he decided they should move in together. Other stars favour reptilian companions - Leonard DiCaprio prefers the company of his dragon lizard and LaToyah Jackson is well known for her affection for pythons.
