Celebrity Poodles

I came across a photo of Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi walking their poodle and thought it would be fun to have a thread of celebrity poodle owners. They have a black standard poodle and a small poodle type cross.

Here's an article where Ellen talks about her love of animals: http://www.moderndogmagazine.com/features/ellen-degeneres-life-dogs

Anyone else know of famous (by association) poodles?

Cool! I didnt know Ellen has a poodle. I like her even more now!
Last one for now, although I am having fun with this!

Singer Joss Stone has a toy poodle.

I cant seem to find any pictures, but Jack Lemmon (who i Love) owned 2 standards.
I think Robin Williams owns two standard poodles too.
A few more... Montel Williams had his toy poodle take part in his wedding ceremony! He mentions him in the last question below.

Yep, I found a family photo (out of date I'm guessing, as I think he's now divorced...)

He did! It seems his poodle was a big part of his life. Someone even wrote a play about travelling with his dog up to a film set. I couldn't find a photo of Jack with his dog, but I did find a photo of the dog with her travelling companion. :)

Adam West (Batman and Family Guy) had one, don't know if he still does. I only found one pic and it was old and poor quality.
Fun thread! Found this after a google search:


Dogs have almost always been prominent in the world of arts. A favorite subject of artists, the Poodle probably appears in more works of art and literature than any other dog. There were drawings of Poodles by several artists such as Durer (Germany, 15th and 16th centuries) and Goya (Spain, 18th century). Gertrude stein, Alexander Woollcort and Booth Tarkington were among the first to write about their Poodles.

In addition to being famous by nature, some Poodles also became famous simply for being companions to famous artists and/or celebrities. In his book Why We Love the Dogs We Do, Dr. Stanley Coren gives the following list of celebrities that owned Poodles at lease once in their lives (pp. 274-7). It’s amazing the amount of artists and/or celebrities owning Poodles. Their dogs’ names (if known), appear behind theirs.

I saw an issue of a "Hollywood" type mag at my dentist's office that had an article about Kirstie Alley - she has a standard poodle, too, but I can't find any pictures... The pictures in the magazine showed the dog in a pretty funky cut!
I have a picture of Doris Day w/ her Poodles.

Oohhh, multi coloured poodles. Cool!
Here's one of Joan Collins!
