What exactly that means is unclear, but the subtitle to the article said "Star's dad tells News the star of hundreds of adult films is showing signs of arousal." Since it's well known that men often awaken with erections, it's possible that Jeremy's father is saying that the adult film star, who was ranked by AVN at number one in their "The 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time" list, is saying the porn star icon is experiencing that symptomology.
At any rate, Jeremy was awake and aware of his surroundings in a southern California ICU as of Sunday, his 94-year-old father Arnold Hyatt said. Jeremy was born Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, and will turn 60 on March 12.
Jeremy, a legend in the porn industry, drove himself to Cedars-Sinai hospital last Tuesday afternoon with severe chest pain. Doctors who examined the legendary porn star discovered an aneurysm near his heart.
After his condition continued to decline, doctors performed two surgeries on Jeremy on Wednesday. After his second surgery, Jeremey's manager Mike Esterman said that he was informed by the surgeons that everything went "smoothly," adding that "Ron is now resting with complete privacy and no visitors."
Jeremy's website said he was expected to remain in intensive care for several more days before moving to another part of the hospital. Hyatt said, on Monday, "I still have my fingers crossed. If you're familiar with this kind of procedure, there can be periods of euphoria followed by setbacks."
Jeremy's entry on the Internet Adult Film Database lists over 2,000 films in which he has performed, and an additional 281 films which he directed. He has also appeared in non-pornographic films, such as "Crank: High Voltage," "Girls Gone Dead," "The Chase," "Orgazmo," "They Bite," "The Boondock Saints," and "54."
