Adult film legend Ron Jeremy is out of the hospital, it was reported on Friday. A video (embedded) of the porn star taken Thursday shows him out and about, with both Moonlight Bunny Ranch boss Dennis Hof and an unnamed female companion, to boot.
Jeremy, nicknamed "The Hedgehog" due to a strange incident on the set of "Olympic Fever," shot in 1979, said he was feeling great. In fact, doctors have given him clearance to perform any "legendary acts" he wants. Jeremy said:
They said to me at the clinic, that if you can walk up two flights of stairs you're able to have sex... so I walked up two flights of stairs and three additional stairs.
"The Hedgehog" is back; kong live the legend.
Ron Jeremy underwent two surgeries on Wednesday, Jan. 30, after driving himself to Cedars-Sinai hospital the day before afternoon with severe chest pain. Doctors who examined the legendary adult film star discovered an aneurysm near his heart.
Jeremy's condition declined and he was admitted to the intensive care unit. In order to save his life, doctors were forced to perform two surgeries.
An aneurysm is a localized, blood-filled balloon-like bulge in the wall of a blood vessel. If it were to burst, an aneurysm could result in severe hemorrhage, other complications or even death.
Ron Jeremy is 59; he will turn 60 on March 12. Born Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, he was ranked by AVN at number one in their "The 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time" list.
