Working along with George Clooney on the sets of Batman & Robin in 1997, Schwarzenegger stated that Clooney had a pet pig named Max who used to follow him around everywhere. Like all the others present at the shoot, Schwarzenegger also admired the cute hog and decided to get one too. However, due to his children’s mischief, he soon had to give away the pig. Years later, his girlfriend Heather Milligan gifted Schwarzenegger another swine that he named Schnelly.

While talking with Jimmy Kimmel, he stated, “My girlfriend gave it to me…I always wanted to have a pig because George Clooney, when we did Batman & Robin with him in the 90s, and you know, he had a little pig with him and it ran around with him all over the place…so that inspired me.”
