As an aspiring porn star, Ron Jeremy did not get off to an auspicious start. "I had to leave the set and run upstairs to a fluffer [who prepares male porn stars for their scenes]," he later recalled of his first day on the job. "Then I came running down the stairs with an erection: 'Hurry! Hurry! Start rolling!'"
[Ron Jeremy once earned a master's degree in Special Education.]
