Jewish Name -
Ronald Jeremy Hyatt

Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, usually called Ron Jeremy, is an American adult film actor. Nicknamed "The Hedgehog", and "The Agnes Buster" (due to an ex-girlfriend) [1] Ron Jeremy was ranked by AVN at number one in their "The 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time" list.[4] Ron Jeremy has also appeared in non-pornographic films, such as The Chase, Orgazmo, They Bite, The Boondock Saints, Crank: High Voltage and 54.[5]

Ron Jeremy has gained some notoriety for being capable of autofellatio (which Ron Jeremy first demonstrated on-screen in Inside Seka).

 

Early life

Ron Jeremy was born in Queens, New York on, March 12, 1953, to a middle-class Jewish family;[2] his father, Arnold, was a physicist and his mother a book editor[6] who served in the O.S.S. during World War II, as she spoke fluent German and French.[7]

Ron Jeremy attended Cardozo High School in Bayside, Queens, where former CIA director George Tenet, actor Reginald Vel Johnson and New York State attorney Todd Silverblatt were his classmates.[8][9] Ron Jeremy earned a bachelor's degree in education and theatre and a master's degree in special education from Queens College in New York.[10] Ron Jeremy taught special-education classes in the New York City area and was a substitute teacher for regular classes.[11]

Pornographic film career

Ron Jeremy left the teaching profession (Ron Jeremy called it his "ace in the hole") to pursue an acting career in New York City, and says Ron Jeremy learned what it was like to make no money as an actor who "starved Off-Broadway."[10] Ron Jeremy posed for Playgirl after his then-girlfriend submitted his photo to the magazine,[9] and subsequently moved into the adult film industry as a means to support himself.[10]

Ron Jeremy started using his first and middle name professionally in the adult industry, after his grandmother Rose was pestered by people calling her thinking they were contacting him.[6] Rose—listed at that time as R. Hyatt in the phone book—was pestered at all hours by prospective suitors who’d seen Ron Jeremy in Playgirl. "She had to move out of her apartment for a month," Ron Jeremy confides. "My father told me, 'If you want to get into this naked, crazy business, so be it, but if you use the family name again, I’ll kill you.'"

Ron Jeremy had his nickname "The Hedgehog" bestowed upon him by Bill Margold after an incident on the set of Olympic Fever, shot in 1979.[12] Ron Jeremy flew in from New York to shoot the movie, dressed in a T-shirt and shorts, expecting warm weather. During his motorcycle ride to the set, located near Lake Arrowhead in the California mountains, the weather deteriorated to blizzard conditions, which chilled him to the point of hypothermia. Upon arriving at the set, Ron Jeremy was immediately whisked away to warm up in a hot shower. When Ron Jeremy finished, his skin had taken on a pink hue from the temperature extremes, and the hairs on his body were standing on end. Margold's comment upon seeing Ron Jeremy after the shower was, "You are a hedgehog, my friend. A walking, talking hedgehog."[13] Contrary to popular belief, the nickname had nothing to do with Ron Jeremy's weight gain, as Ron Jeremy was quite physically fit at the time.

Ron Jeremy is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for "Most Appearances in Adult Films";[14] his entry on the Internet Adult Film Database lists more than 2,000 films in which Ron Jeremy has performed, and an additional 281 films which Ron Jeremy directed.[15] By way of comparison, John Holmes—the next highest-ranked male star on the AVN Top 50 porn stars[4]—has only 384 acting credits listed on the IAFD.[16]

One joke that made the rounds within the industry at the time was "the kinkier acts some actresses would not perform were bestiality, sado-masochism and sex with Ron Jeremy."[1] However, Ron Jeremy has since been recognized for his contributions to the adult industry by being inducted into both the AVN and XRCO Hall of Fame. Additionally, Ron Jeremy's work earned him a spot on the Adult Star Path of Fame located in Edison, New Jersey. Ron Jeremy has said that violent video games are worse than porn.[17]
