Ron Jeremy hospitalized, undergoing surgery for aneurysm near heart

LOS ANGELES -- Veteran pornography actor Ron Jeremy, one of the 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 adult 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.

Really a nice man.
Funny too.

And, of course, a legend.

Get well Ron!

14. I respect porn performers far more than many other celebrities.

They, for the most part, have no delusions about who they are, and what they do.

30. Somehow, I imagine that the vast majority of posts in a gravely ill Kardashian thread...

...would be far more civil than those concerning their everyday marriage bullshit or what have you.

Do you agree?

He's certainly a stand-up kind of guy, I'm sure he'll ram his way through.

28. There was a tv show he was on with Tammy Faye Baker

I always thought he was scum until I saw this show and he is a pretty good guy, just does scummy porn if that's your thing I got no problem. Also I liked Tammy and saw she was a good person with a good heart. It was not acting on either one of them they're people with humanity. Rip Tammy.
