Ron Jeremy in critical condition

Postby JS© on Wed Jan 30, 2013 6:07 pm

Get well soon, Hedgehog.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Veteran actor Ron Jeremy, one of the movie industry's biggest stars, was in intensive care and undergoing surgery for an aneurysm near his heart in Los Angeles, his manager said on Wednesday.
Jeremy, 59, the star of more than 2,000 films, drove himself to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles early on Wednesday after suffering from chest pains.
"He just felt chest pains, like a very heavy weight," Jeremy's manager Mike Esterman told Reuters.
"He is being worked on for an aneurysm near his heart," Esterman added.
Jeremy, nicknamed the "Hedgehog" for his short and hirsute body and known for his large mustache, parlayed his fame into mainstream celebrity status by appearing on the American reality television series "The Surreal Life" in 2004, and by being featured in an advertisement by animal-rights advocates PETA.
His memoir, "The Hardest (Working) Man in Showbiz," was published in 2007 by HarperCollins, a division of News Corp.

I never understood Ron Jeremy's appeal, TBH.

I think alot of it may be his occupation coupled with his Super Mario-esque appearance

So it's a combination of being impressed by his profession while not being threatened by his hedgehog-like appearance?

He's super ugly, but I guess it helps the viewer concentrate on the fake tits.

I’m going to guess that it’s some or all of the following:

- Mr. Jeremy is more than qualified when it comes to what is probably the primary criteria for a male porn star. A lot of guys wish they were similarly endowed.
- He’s made an entire career of having sex with attractive women. That career kept going even as he pretty much let himself go physically.
- He’s had sex thousands of times with literally hundreds of women, and again, a lot of men wish they were similarly situated.
- Having seen some interviews with him, he actually seems like a pretty nice, funny guy.

I wonder what he looked like before he let himself go, because I only ever seen him fat and ugly.

I've actually met him, and know a couple people who hang out with him pretty regularly. He's awesome in just about every way that you'd want him to be awesome.

He actually doesn't use luggage when he travels, everything goes into a trash bag. The guy's notoriously cheap.

He was 'discovered' after appearing in Playgirl magazine. I think he was a school teacher before he got into pr0n.

Also, IIRC, Mr. Jeremy when he was younger, thinner, and much more flexible was known in the porn world for being able to do something that only a very flexible man would be able to do to himself.

Yes, he is very famous for that, and rightly so. Cos, let's be honest with ourselves here; if all guys could do that........ well, we would.

Yeah, I mentioned this in the movie thread.

Nice enough guy in a 'taboo" profession. Great interview on Stern a year or two ago.

Also a smart guy from what I remember reading. Held a Masters in Special Education and was a teacher in NY for several years. He also did a debate series about "the business" (keeping it family board friendly), which ended up setting an online viewing record of some sort.

I first saw Mr. Jeremy perform in the Swedish Erotica 8mm film series back in the early 80's, and incidentally also had a few Chaplin films. :pop:

I think it's the combination of his "average guy looks" (in most of the dimensions :) ), and the fact that he is quite smart and witty that makes him so popular and able to cross-over.

I believe some years ago he was invited by Oxford University to speak there (the same seminar series that includes heads of states...). Plus, to add one extra dimension toward his awesomeness - he is a classically-trained pianist. Not a great, but still. There are many videos on youtube ("Ron Jeremy" + "pianist") where you can hear him play classical masters.

Plus he acted in one of my favorite "guilty pleasure" movies - the severely under-appreciated Orgazmo.
