The adult movie star Ron Jeremy is in a serious condition after doctors had to perform emergency surgery on him. According to a report from TMZ, the 59 year old porn star drove himself to Cedars Sinai hospital, Los Angeles, after experiencing serious chest pains. After conducting investigations, the doctors found an aneurysm and were forced to perform emergency surgery.

His manager, Mike Esterman, confirmed the news to TMZ and initially spoke to them whilst Ron was being prepared for surgery. He had been moved to the ICU, as his condition had worsened. An update yesterday (January 30, 2013) from Esterman revealed that Jeremy’s second operation had gone “smoothly” and said that he is now “resting with complete privacy and no visitors.”

Ron has been appearing in porn movies since the late 1970s and is probably one of the best known figures in the US adult movie industry. He’s renowned for his 9 inch penis and has starred in movies such as High Heels, Low Standards, A Christmas Orgy and Super Hornio Brothers. Ron’s appeal, however, has taken his career beyond the porn industry and he has also acted in a number of mainstream movies – often as an extra - such as Detroit Rock City, The Boondock Saints and Killing Zoe.
