Here is a fun fact for you. Ron Jeremy practices Yoga… from time to time. You wouldn’t know it to look at him now, but he was quite limber and athletic back in the day. Anyhow, Ron still practices Yoga on occasion and of course, Ron being Ron, he will always wind up around other famous people. It turns our Ron’s occasional Yoga partners are none other than White Sun, who just won the Grammy Award for best New Age Album beating out both Enya and Vangelis.
Ron was in attendance at the 2016 DGA awards with Directors Guild member John Clark, ex-husband to Lynn Redgrave. The two have been attending the event for 10 years. This year Ron wanted to meet Kenneth Lonergan who directed the Oscar nominated Manchester By The Sea. Ron is working on the parody version being created for the Toscars, an annual event that parodies all of the Best Picture nominees. People were surprised at just how popular Ron was at the event with autograph seekers at the show. He had just as many as some of the A-List celebrities in attendance. The Hollywood Reporter also took notice of Ron’s not so secret tendency to nod off at these events. Ron explains “I’ve been going nonstop…I was absolutely, 100 percent dead [tired]. I need more sleep.” It is true. Just recently, Ron was at the AEE show representing Hotmovies.com during the day and then making comedy appearances at night with his XL Comedy Tour. He is always on the move.
Hidden Figures director Theodore Melfi revealed his rather unorthodox background and directing origins. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Melfi recalls that one of his very first directing credits was the now famous Power of Music commercial for MTV featuring Ron delivering a pizza to scantily clothed girls.
The Iowa caucuses are tonight, and things are heating up in the 2016 race to the White House with the first major nominating event of the election season! Historically, the Iowa caucuses have a 43% (Democrat) and 50%(Republican) accuracy rate when it comes to predicting each party’s nominee, and the candidates are racking up the celebrity endorsements as they battle to become the next Commander-in-Chief.
Over the weekend, Buzzfeed News reported that in a recent interview with the outlet, Ron Jeremy officially endorsed his choice for President in 2016: Hillary Clinton.
According to the interview, much of Jeremy’s decision came out of admiration for Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton.
“’I got to shake hands with her husband,’ Jeremy said, noting his admiration for former president Bill Clinton’s role in the Northern Irish peace process and his attempts to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict. ‘A lot of it’s because of him. When he was in office, she gave him a lot of advice. When she’s in office, he’ll give her a lot of advice.’”
But that wasn’t all Jeremy had to say, and he certainly wasn’t shy when it came to his opinion on the field of Republican candidates.
On party front runner Donald Trump, Jeremy stated that he “likes [Trump] because he’s a New Yorker and because Trump stocks his brand of rum at Trump Tower in Panama. ‘Everyone loves his passion,’ he said, ‘but when it comes down to having a finger on a button, I don’t know if I want Donald Trump’s finger on the button.’
Jeremy had even harsher words for candidate Ben Carson.
“‘He should do what he does best and go back into the OR. Go cure cancer.’ Get the fuck out of the race, you fucking idiot, and do what you do best,’ he added later.”
Wise words, from a wise man. Maybe it’s time to back Ron Jeremy 2016 instead!
