“About three weeks ago I was struck by a car as I was walking on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. The car ran over my foot. I’ve been wearing a cast on my foot for weeks,” the adult film star, famously nicknamed “The Hedgehog,” told Page Six on Tuesday. “I was nervous I might not be able to walk the catwalk. I have been healing but I am still in a lot of pain.”
Despite the pain, Jeremy walked in Nina Athanasiou’s presentation this week.
“I believe the adrenaline that night kicked in and I didn’t even notice my foot while I was on the catwalk,” he continued. “It wasn’t until later that I dealt with the pain again. I was so happy and having so much fun in the moment that I guess pain didn’t even matter.”
Jeremy said he “came out to huge cheers.”
“I don’t mean to brag but I’m going to brag!” he told us. “They really seemed to like me.”
Dressed in a custom velvet suit, Jeremy said the Hugh Hefner-inspired look was entirely Athanasiou’s idea.
“She picked out all of my outfits because they are hers,” he explained. “I remembered right after I got off the catwalk I walked up to her and gave her a hug and said, ‘Thank you for giving me this opportunity it’s something I’ve never done.’”
