Ron Jeremy The Most Famous Male Porn Star

In an industry dominated by female names, Ron Jeremy continues to be one of the most famous performers. Originally, Ronald Hyatt, the male adult film star has enjoyed more crossover success and fame than any other XXX star.

Just continue through this article to find out more about this legend.

Life Before Porn

This guy came from a middle-class Jewish family in Queens, New York. Both his parents worked.

  • Father – His dad, Arnold Hyatt, was actually a physicist.
  • Mother – His mother was a book editor, but during World War II, she had worked for the Office of Strategic Services as she could speak both French and German.

Education

At Cardozo High School, the young Ronald shared classrooms with George Tenet, who would go on to become director of the CIA, and Reginal VelJohnson, who would grow up to act in shows like “Family Matters” and movies like “Die Hard.”

Originally, porn was never part of the plan. He went on to Queens College where he earned his bachelor’s in education and theater. He would add a master’s degree in special education as well. This led to a short career of a substitute teacher at the local high school.

By the way: Ron is a guest in Marcus London´s program called 60 Minute Stamina where he shares his amazing secret techniques for lasing longer in bed.

Shifting to Adult Business

Teaching had served as a means of supporting himself while he tried to make it as an actor. However, while pursuing a career on Broadway, Jeremy eventually needed more money.

The woman he was dating at the time submitted photos of him to Playgirl magazine. The rest, as they say, is history.

His parody of Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus is hilarious!

Change of Name

Soon after beginning in the business, he started using his middle name, becoming Ron Jeremy. He said the decision came after people were calling his grandma looking for him.

It wasn’t just a few phone calls either. So many suitors went crazy for him after his initial spread that his grandmother had to be removed from her apartment for a month until the fervor died down.

Dropping “Hyatt” for “Jeremy” was less his decision than his father’s, who told his son he’d kill him if he used his family’s name again. From there, Ronald would begin in the XXX industry.

World Record Holder

Presently, this guy still holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for the “Most Appearances in Adult Films”. Though no one knows the exact number, he is listed as starring in well over 2,000 and directed 281 of his own.

If there’s a second place to his title, it would be another male actor named John Holmes. To give you some appreciation for how prolific his career has been, Holmes’ only has 281 movies to his name.

By the way: Here is my list of most expensive and luxurious sex toys on the market.

  • The Rules of Attraction

On the second season of the reality TV show, The Surreal Life, Ron lived and competed with a number of other contestants. One of special interest was Tammy Faye Bakker, former televangelist and wife to Jim Bakker. Despite her devout Christianity and stance against pornography, her and Ronald ended up forming a close friendship.

Other media: He has been featured in many music videos, advertisements, viral videos and even video games. He was in a PETA advertisement urging owners to spay and neuter their pets and even spoke and featured in the music video for LMFAO’s summer smash hit, “I’m Sexy & I Know It.”

Outside of kinky stuff, he finds a number of ways to continue staying busy.

  • Writer – In 2007, he released his autobiography, entitled, “Ron Jeremy: The Hardest (Working) Man in Showbiz“.
  • Spokesperson – He represents HotMovies.com, a pay-by-the-minute XXX website as their official spokesperson. This job takes him all over the world to different adult film conventions.

    For the longest time I had no idea who Ron Jeremy was, he just looked like a dirty fellow featured in random movies so I would see his face now and then but never actually put a finger on who the guy was. It was when I was watching The Boondock Saints that I made the connection between Ron Jeremy the porn star and Ron Jeremy the actor being one and the same person.

    Thank you for gathering some facts about him – I had no idea the depth of his porn career especially compared to John Holmes who is a well-known staple in that industry.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      You are welcome Jake.

  • Becky

    Have you tried his Rum? I always just drink Captain Morgan but am intrigued what a guy like Ron would flavor his rum like.

    I am always interested about the progression of actors careers, starting with the obvious roles in movies and moving onto directing as they build up a name for themselves; ultimately leading to them endorsing and representing other companies backed by their own reputation in a sort of retirement phase for those in the acting profession.

    I have honestly never seen the man perform in a sexual role in any film but today I am going to make an effort to find one of his films and see what the man has to offer; after reading all of this information about the guy it is hard to resist.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Hey Becky. Sadly I had no opportunity to try his rum. I bet you should have a look at his performance.

  • Don

    Could you go into a little more detail about which video games the man was featured in?

    I remember Postal 2 had a cameo appearance by Gary Coleman if I recall, but Ron Jeremy I am having trouble coming up with examples although I’m sure I have played a few games with him since that is my main hobby. I would also like to say that his autobiography is incredible, and if you have half a day sometime it is more than worth your time to give it a read over.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Hey, that is really missing in my article. I will try to add it soon.

  • Don

    I was surprised that I hadn’t seen a write up about Ron on this website, thank you for compiling all of this information and wrapping it up in a nice article James!

    Many people try to demonize Ron for the things he has done in his career, but to me he is just a man trying to make a living like anyone else. If you look closely, you will even see that Ron feels strongly about many issues (for example the PETA ad you mention he had a part in). Honestly, I feel like Ron is probably a higher quality person than many of the people that try to call him out for doing what he loves.

    I try to live my life like my mother taught me, where if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      I totally agree with you Don. Many people who criticize him are just hypocrites.

  • Trent

    Did Ron live with his grandmother immediately prior to becoming popular in the porn industry? I don’t understand why so many people attempted to contact her!

    Very interesting that it was his girlfriend of all people who submitted his images to Playgirl getting him started in all of this…I am pretty sure my girlfriend would not be very happy about that magazine posting my photos, especially since if I understand correctly that magazine caters mostly to a homosexual male audience rather than a straight female audience as would be expected.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Nice points Trent.

  • sasha fan

    If Ron Jeremy is the king, then Sasha Grey would have to be the queen!

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Hahaha that is right!

  • danny

    Ron Jeremy really has had a storied life hasn’t he? His move to the mainstream is what really impresses me the most.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Me too dude.

  • leonardo

    Have you read his autobiography? I am surprised that the man is still alive after all that he has been through.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Sadly I have not. But I am going to do so soon as that guy is really interesting.

  • marsha

    Over 2, 000 films! Wow, that’s a lot of tail to be getting over your lifetime! How did he do it?!

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      I have no idea Marsha. Not at all.

  • jackie

    How many awards can a porn star get?! He is truly one of the greats and I don’t think anyone will ever have a life like his so far.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      To be honest, not a single porn star is having similar success as Ron. His career was really amazing.

  • christie

    I didn’t know he had his own rum! I have to see if I can find it locally. I grew up watching his films, he is one of the coolest people alive.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Sure go check it out and taste it. Maybe you could share with us how good/bad it actually was.

  • matty

    Is he still making porn? I thought he would have been retired by now.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      As far as I know he is not doing porn movies. However, he is dealing with a lot of other stuff just check out end of this article.

  • duke

    he really has the face of a porn director, lol. or mix of porn director and cartel leader. poor guy, he didn’t age well at all.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      No he did not but he gained special charisma that helps him a lot!

  • nelly

    Gosh, he was a real stunner when he was younger. Now he just looks…yknow old and inflated. Eh, he had his glory days. Good for him for still being super successful.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Sure, nowadays he is still famous and active and I believe that is really cool!

  • Achron

    Dude, I didn’t know he was the guy from LMFAO’s clip. Major lol. Goes to show that once you get famous in this industry as a guy, you get to ride the fame train all your life.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      However, it is hard earned fame…

  • Pete

    Hmm, I kinda want to read his autobiography, seems interesting enough. Besides, he’s done so much shit that I bet he has some really good stories in there.

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      Trust me that you will be really amazed by his book!

  • Nick

    Eh, the man really got around, literally and figuratively. Also very interesting that his gf submitted the photos…my gf get jealous even when she sees other women checking me out at the beach. Who knows what would’ve happened if she never sent them out? Maybe he’d be an anonymous, like the rest of u

    • http://thestallionstyle.com/ James Buzinko

      That is true Nick. There are usually small things that leads to great success in life.
