15 Things You Didn't Know About Ron Jeremy

Ron Jeremy is the most famous male porn star in the world but that's not all there is to know about him. Example: He released a rap single!

There was a moment during the 2014 Academy Awards when host Seth MacFarlane, before strapping on a pair of enormous skis and jumping the shark, playfully admitted that he possibly wasn't the first choice as compere. "From Whoopi all the way down to Ron Jeremy, it eventually found its way to me," he joked; The very fact that most of the audience got the reference to Jeremy is proof in itself that the portly adult star has transcended the medium of adult films to become a genuine cultural icon. But who is the man behind the legendary genitals? Let's delve a bit deeper into the world according to Ron.

A native of Queens, New York, Ronald Jeremy Hyatt was born in March 1953, unto a physicist and a book editor. His childhood was happy and ordinary - his adulthood has been anything but. While many reading this article will have heard of Ron and his huge...talent before, there are some lesser known facts about the man nicknamed 'The Hedgehog' that may surprise or baffle those who perceive adult stars to be of a seedy, distant species. The more you read about Ron, the more he seems like a nice, regular bloke that you could happily sit and have a pint with - albeit an ordinary bloke with a far more interesting job than yours. There are an abundance of interesting facts contained in this article, even if we do say so ourselves, from the unlikely story of Ron's first job to his bewildering success in the music charts, but for anybody wanting to ask the obvious question, we're not covering it here. Though it's 9 1/2 inches, apparently.
