Have you ever wondered what Sam Neill is up to these days?
Okay, you probably haven’t. But you need to change that right now.
It turns out the Jurassic Park star has been living his best life with his pet pig.
Neill and his pig do yoga every morning, taking turns to “coach” each other, and they have pictures to prove it.
So The Pig and I do our stretching routine together these mornings; we take turns while the other coaches. Here we… https://t.co/yDCUoM6Jqn — Sam Neill (@Sam Neill)
In fact, Neill and his pig, who’s called Angelica, have a very public friendship on social media.
He has always had a name. He's just embarrassed by it . So I don't say it much. You'd be embarrassed too. ANGELICA.… https://t.co/LtmJFtY8XM — Sam Neill (@Sam Neill)
Here they are singing together last week:
Singing With Pigs. My old pig friend is always up for a duet . Its more his kind of song really . Took me years to… https://t.co/lwWVkoRGDM — Sam Neill (@Sam Neill)
Here’s Sam teaching Angelica some basic English:

Sometimes, Neill has to go away for weeks at a time – he’s still a film star after all – and that upsets Angelica…

@TwoPaddocks You are the most wholesome, precious human being and I so appreciate your existence in this darkening world. — jenna. (@jenna.)
Apparently, this is just a normal day at the office if you’ve been paying attention to Sam’s updates.
This is exactly what I assumed Sam Neill was up to. https://t.co/SH457IWld7 — Mike Prask (@Mike Prask)
Neill has more animals than just one pig as well, including a cow named after Helena Bonham Carter, a chicken called Rose Byrne and a duck called Charlie Pickering.
I've come to realize that this duck, Charlie Pickering, thinks it owns me.
Which is fair. @charliepick… https://t.co/MSpzDRXNVn — Sam Neill (@Sam Neill)
