Ron Jeremy is in critical condition at an L.A. hospital ... and is being treated for an aneurysm that was located near his heart ... TMZ has learned.
Ron's manager, Mike Esterman, tells TMZ ... 59-year-old Ron drove himself to Cedars-Sinai hospital Tuesday afternoon after experiencing severe chest pain. Docs examined the legendary porn star ... and discovered the aneurysm.
According to Esterman, Ron's condition has worsened and he was transferred to the ICU. He's currently being prepped for surgery.
Ron -- and his 9-inch penis -- have appeared in more than 2,000 X-rated movies together ... including, "Super Hornio Brothers," "High Heels, Low Standards," and "A Christmas Orgy."
He also spoofed Harvey Levin in the XXX spoof, "TMSleaze."
I saw a documentary on him. He seems like an ordinary, rather sad guy. He's always wanted to make it in mainstream forms of entertainment, but he has no talent or looks and he's so well known as a porn star that nobody take him seriously as anything else.
The documentary showed him doing a godawful standup routine. He was doing all these facial contortions and then explained to the audience that he thinks maybe he got a piece of some girl's tampon stuck in his teeth. How lame.
Anyway, I hope he gets better. He doesn't seem like a bad person.
Maybe the Hedgehog can donate his bristles to one of those charities that make wigs for cancer patients.
Maybe it was caused by that penis enlargement stuff he was always hawking.
The article says he was in "over 2,000" videos. James Deen, who's been in the business for a franction of the time that the Hedgehog has, claims 4,000. I find that figure unbelievable.
I remember him from the 70s.
He did a nightly talk show on Channel J in New York in the nude.
This English schoolboy couldn't believe his eyes.
They'd have interludes where they'd bend over for the audience.
Also, let's not forget the rabbi...his sidekick.
If Jeremy's penis, which appears exceptionally large on screen (all the more larger for its being attached to a stocky man as we know overall girth tends to undermine dicksize, making it appear smaller than it actually is), is only 9 inches - and that may well be true - then it only stands to reason that the average pornstar penis is below 7 inches.
Anyone know where to send him a card?

[quote]What a shocker, he always looked so healthy.
Exactly. I'm surprised it took him this long before he had heart problems.
He's good as dead.
It's a good thing for Ron that he knew something was wrong and got himself there as soon as he could.
It's hard to tell from that badly written article, but this is not good. If the aneurysm breaks he's as good as dead, and aneurysm surgery on the largest vessels is far from a sure thing.
This would be a tragedy. After all the sex he's had over the years it should have extended his life.
I actually remember first seeing Ron in an issue of Playgirl in the 70's. He was in an issue where girlfriends sent pics of their naked boyfriends. Even then, his big cock caught my eye and years later when I found out he was doing porn, I watched many of his movies. He got disgusting as he aged but those early years, he was hot!
I'm sure it had nothing to do with years of cocaine abuse.
His autobiography is actually entertaining. I got it out of the library.
Wow! Jeremy was so hot when he was young and in shape.
Even though Ron Jeremy is known to be the greatest male pornstar, he was also the nicest guy off the camera.
I saw him at the airport a couple of years ago. Skeeviest man I've ever seen. And greasiest. Greasy and skeevy. Ugh.
Did you check whether he had a bulge in his pants, R31?
Too bad -- he's a very pleasant man (he once spoke at our school and we chatted after).
I know the films gave him a good living, but he is type I would have liked as a co-worker.
Didn't he start out in gay porn?
R33 this wasn't a HS was it?
No, R34. You are thinking of Peter North.

It sounds like they caught it in time. A heart aneurysm that has burst is a catastrophic event.
He's in for a major open-chest surgery, but he should be fine, barring complications.
Was it Matt Damon who used to use "Ron Jeremy" as his fake name when he was staying at hotels?
And then the real Ron Jeremy was at the same hotel and kept getting messages to call major players like Steven Spielberg and George Clooney?
Could you imagine having to empty his bedpan?
[quote]Jeremy was so hot when he was young and in shape.
Yes, hot to blind people.
He doesn't have a big penis either.
[quote]He doesn't have a big penis either.
You lost your credibility with that one.
If he made any money, it went up his nose. I saw him a few years back in front of the Starbucks in West Hollywood and he could hardly hold his head up.
His intro to porn was in a solo video produced by gay porn/white trash legend Kip Noll.
I'm female and met Ron Jeremy at a Hollywood party, the kind where they offer plenty of liquor and absolutely no food. Pretty young Asian girl was begging Ron for coke; think she wanted to get into porn. He sure looked sleazy and druggy. I told the girlfriend who had gotten the party invite that we were leaving ASAP.
Oh, a sadder side of Jeremy r44 -- but people are not at their best on coke.
