Jerry Lewis: I'd smack Lindsay Lohan in the mouth

She survived 13 days of jail and 23 days in rehab, but can Lindsay Lohan handle Jerry Lewis?

The 84-year-old comic legend says he has no sympathy for the troubled starlet, and has threatened to haul off and hit her if they ever crossed paths.

"I'd smack her in the mouth if I saw her," Lewis said in a tirade taped by Inside Edition. "I would smack her in the mouth and be arrested for abusing a woman!"

Getting even more fired up, the "Nutty Professor" star continued, "I would say, 'You deserve this and nothing else' ... WHACK! And then, if she's not satisfied, I'd put her over my knee and SPANK her!"

But "The Machete" actress isn't the only one Lewis has had enough of. He thinks it's time a certain "Simple Life" star smartened up.

"[It's] the same thing with Paris Hilton," he said. "Those children are begging for help. What they're doing is saying, 'I'm f-ed up, can you help me?'"

    Jerry Lewis has only one claim to fame – MS telethon – and he will try to keep that as long as possible because he has NOTHING else. Him calling MS children "My kids" makes me want to barf. He has never been much good at anything and never will be. Wonder how all that money is spent. People send it in hoping to help with MS but I would like a good accounting of where the money goes. I never donate though because I can't stand Jerry Lewis.

"TOO SPOILED" is that comparable to the too big "businesses" that cannot be corrected? shes a drug abuser, and do you think a couple weeks, and a frenzy of media, and getting paid big bucks for a photo shoot is going to help the warped brain?

    I support Mr Lewis completely. Celebrities are treated as 'the untouchables' of society and seemingly get away with what the 'normal public' would not. How were they ever placed on such a high pedestal? The Bible talks about sparing the rod and spoiling the child. Gee- I wonder why? What kind of a Father would God be to create a world and its inhabitants and not provide an operator's manual or guide? Well, folks, the handwriting's on the wall. Breakdown of society stems from not following the principles written in that manual. By the way, I'd rather listen to someone who's had a 'history,' as many claim Lewis had, rather than one who hasn't. When someone speaks from experience, I listen and it sticks. Don't counsel me unless you've been there and know about which you speak. Ohhh, Lindsay!... Paris!... et al- where are you? Now, where did I leave that strap?

    How about smacking her parents so hard that she feels it? Her mother had her out partying the night before a court appearance that they ended up showing up late to. The father is no better.
    A bit of of tough love and true parenting would have created a foundation the prevent some of her acting out.
    The coutrts have tried to smack Lindsey often enough and she still does not get it.
    How about we just choose to ignore her completely (i.e. total media embargo) and see if that does not straighten her and her family out?

    In all the years I have followed Mr. Lewis' telethon. He has been steadfast in his beliefs. Bravo for telling like it is and how you see the situation. Heck, when I was a kid growing up I had neighbor's that, if you did something wrong, oh boy, lookout. They would tell your parents. We had huge extended families. Your nuclear family with Uncle's and Aunt's and not to leave out the neighbor's and close friends. Nothing was worse than having your parents say, I heard today from Mr. or Mrs. that you did this or said this. Boy, that was a sure fire way to get grounded, sent to your room, or not allowed to use your bicycle, etc. Good luck Miss Lohan. I think I have said before many times that boycotting her films would send a very clear and loud message.

    We have to also remember that Jerry is from a period of time when the studios protected stars and hid all of their wrongdoings from the press. Nowadays celebrities do not have that luxury, and sometimes the road like the one Lindsay is on is what she needs to put her life into prospective. They always say you have to hit rock bottom before you can recover. In Jerry's time the studio used you up until they couldn't make another dollar out of you and threw you away. Judy Garland was a prime example. The studios put her on speed to lose weight, then uped the dosage to keep her filming movies and gave her parents downers to make her sleep. This was confirmed by countless people at the studios, including her frequent costar Mickey Rooney. It led her to a life of addiction and tragedy, all because the studio knew she could make them some money. Sad, really and we as the audience just screamed for more.

    Some of you are totally letting Jerry Lewis off the hook! Come on; maybe the guy made funny movies, but like most movie stars, they are ACTING on the screen. They are all different in "real" life. My Aunt happened to see Mr. Lewis, his 4 boys and first wife here in San Diego back in the early 1960's at a restaurant near where he kept his boat. Jerry Lewis was rude and abusive to his wife and kids IN FRONT OF THE PEOPLE AT THE RESTAURANT. So stop putting him on some angelic pedestal. Lohan has real problems, heaven knows.

    Mr. Lewis is a bully and a hateful guy; just ask his boys from his first marriage. Yeah, he WOULD smack Lohan. Let's just call him another Mel Gibson and be done with it. These type of men, who think hitting is just fine, are cowards.
    They are used to being catered to, adored (at least by the French), and expect to get their way. For all the good that Mr. Lewis has done, shame on him for being a bully and self-righteous. And Lohan is a spoiled brat and probably only a bit more mature than her parents. So? Movie stars have been catered to for ages; it keeps health professionals working.

As soon as they were grown they cut you out of their even tho their parents aren't doing a good job....your way doesn't seem to work either. They needed parents, who from the start taught them not to abuse their privilaged lifes....and how to give back (not just money which is the hollywood way but time and caring). At their age only THEY can change their life....and life is giving them the slaps they need.

    The best way to handle these spoiled children is to stop supporting their careers.

    The antics of Lindsay & Paris are staged. Each pay for a publicest to keep them in the news. They need the publicity to pay the bills for their extravegant lifestyles. Jerry Lewis, CNN & Showbiz Tonight pay homage as Hollywood feeds on itself.

    Lewis has been around for a long time, and very much from the capital punishment generation, so it is understandable he would be thinking this way at his age and senility. Ask him what meds he takes. Not being a shrink I don't think his idea is all to good. Lohan is headed for a self destruct completely opn her own and theres no stopping it. She doesn't want to be here anymore. When that happens her blood sucking parents can enjoy her riches without the hassle of little Lindsay to make excuses or blame, sorry ass parents that they are.The most recent baby stroller thing is in my opinion hype, from the only insane asylum with out a fence around it "Hollywood". What I see is an illegal invader pushing a white baby, on a public street. That's it! Maybe she was surprised by Lohan's car passing too close or maybe she just like expensive cars. I think Lindsay is surrounded by parasites and really needs a friend who doesn't want anything in return but to help her. This poor kid is really f'd up.

    This girl needed to be disciplined as a child. It is obvious that Lohan has no idea what boundaries are, how to exercise self control, and respecting other people. She is indeed the typical spoiled Hollywood brat who had stupid, star-struck parents. Sure her dippy parents are to blame for some of this, but Lindsay is 24 years old and old enough to know the difference between right and wrong.

    Lewis got the location wrong, however. Lindsay Lohan needs to be slapped upside the head, not across the mouth.

    He didn't make a living making fun of people with speech disabilities, he made a living being 'silly'. Talking in a funny voice isn't mocking. If he was mocking anything, it was himself. Unless you think that kids that make goofy faces and voices are also mocking? Get real. And he also spent his life working his butt off making money to help cure muscular dystrophy. I just googled the MDA telethon and this thing has been running since 1966 and he's made 2.45 BILLION.

    He has, however, worked on telethons for it in some fashion since 1952. Probably longer than you've been alive. So to say that he's mocking the disabled is patently untrue, and really insulting.

    It's fine to mock his acting ability or to dislike him as a performer. He might also be a jerk in person. But his dedication to the disabled is completely not in question.

    Jerry Lewis is just saying what most people are thinking – or saying without a camera in their face. It's not Lindsay Lohan. It's not Paris Hilton. It's the specter of someone who has so many advantages doing really dumb things and wanting sympathy or special treatment. Many parents of grown children are coming to the realization that giving their kids everything – including protection from the consequences of their foibles – is just making it easier for these children to act as if life has no consequences. Jerry Seinfeld had it right: Parents should stop solving their children's problems for them.

    a good whack in the chops isn't going to solve lindsay's problems. she should however have been made to serve her full sentence. it's time society got off the celebrity worship bandwagon. if you do the crime do the time just like and other ordinary individual.

    I think these young girls have all the money they want and no real love and guidance from there parents, and if the parents are troubled from there family members. The media goes so far out of there way to make it worse on these young people, being in your face they can't live any normal life. Jerry Lewis is right smack her up side the head and yell out "SNAP OUT OF IT". But really she deserved more than what she got, she broke the law she had more than one DUI. She did a bunch of other stupid stuff. Us normal people would have to stay in jail and rehab. Not get treated like a star like they do. When you break the law you have to pay and not just say oops my bad and go back to partying.

    It seems like some folks on CNN just have it out for young people. Paint all of us with the same brush. Make references to 'kids these days have no respect for authority.'

    Might I point out that many people in positions of authority have no respect for young people, whether we are 'pot smoking degenerate tree huggers' or responsible upstanding members of society.

    We are being persecuted due to our age.

    To those people, I say take a look at yourselves. You guys are not DESERVING of our respect.

    To those who view people as equals regardless of age, race, religion or socioeconomic status, I say thank you for not lumping everyone together. I am a 24 year old father of twin boys. I respect them as my equal in humanitarian terms, and as my children who I am raising to be responsible free thinking and contributing members of society.

    Age doesn't matter to the extent many of you feel it does. What matters is the responsibility you take for your actions, the change you implement in your own negative lifestyle, and the knowledge you gain to make better decisions in the future.

    Show me some 19 year old teenage parent who doesn't have a clue what they're doing, and I'll show you a 48 year old man who is in jail for alcoholism and physically abusing his family.

    Age matters not. Stop writing people off. Stop lumping people together. Stop belittling today's youth. We are not entirely different from the youth of your era.

    Jerry is simple stating the obvious. Being spoiled and idolized for beauty instead of heart/soul. This is what sells magazines and we guy it up like suckers. Meanwhile back at the ranch in some countries some poor starving none beautiful on the outside (Perhaps on the inside) is POOR and suffering with disease. Maybe Oprah can help as long as they are beautiful on the outside. Jerry does not judge the appearance. He judges the actions of the selfish. Jerry you made us laugh and you committed your life to helping the ones that need it most. While they poss for the camera you us it to bring happiness and help to the disabled and poor souls. Thanks you. Your an inspiration and others should try and do the same.

    Source: People Magazine, Dec. 11, 1978 "One pill in the morning would take me through the day," Lewis recalls. "That helped greatly for the first four or five years. I'm not terribly clear about when I started to lose the help I was getting from one, but then it was two." Lewis probably knows that hitting people doesn't help them, but he's too much of a mess himself to cope with life. He should just avoid the spotlight and fade away like the rest of the boozing rat pack.

    I don't condone physical punishment, but certainly Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton are overly coddled spoiled brats who probably needed more discipline when they were kids but their parents were too busy with their own lives to raise their own kids properly. Even today, the try to make excuses for the bad behavior or say they have been punished enough. Both deserve long prison sentences at hard (real) labor with 5 – 10 years of parole. Maybe then they would stop being in denial and recognize they are irresponsible individuals.

    I have to agree with a much earlier comment – old school has much 2 teach the self-absorbed, wasteful and abusive lifestyles Lohan and Hilton. And by the way, where is Hilton's parents? She is an adult, however it appears it is past time for an intervention (her two recent run ins over marijuana and now a felony cocaine charge in Nevada) before the young lady ends up in serious trouble. What? Her father can run a conglomerate, and her mother is well positioned, but they cannot intervene with helping their daughter adequately? Brittany's dad manned up and hat's off to him and his daughter for turning it around! Ms. Lohan – there must be, and perhaps not, someone who is close to her and cares and is not a hanger on – time to find her a stable adult influence who cares and can intervene as well. To both Ms. Lohan and Hilton – I know too many people out of work, losing their homes, living with terminal illnesses and who cannot afford the best of treatment, and I myself am a 100% service connected disabled veteran not quite able to "feed myself" the 2 weeks of the month. I am 49 now, and I have also met many people in my life, from the very rich to the very poor, and the same problems are often rife in whatever life station one has. However, a responsibility comes with privledge, or even with the lack thereof, and that is to use your abilites and opportunites and resources, whatever it is in life, to enrich your own life as well as the ones around you. Mr. Lewis – call Mr. Hilton and Ms Hilton's mother if you mean to be of genuine adult assistance, then perhaps search to find Lindsay a "family of sorts" that will step up and intervene as well and not be opportunists. Peace and good wishes to all. CB in Memphis

      CB - Right on! Where WERE the parents? {not withstanding suds' "grammar nazi" comment}

      As to Jerry's telethon and comments that he no longer helps MD patients that aren't "cute and loveable anymore"? Sounds like all you want is to lay about and wait for a handout.

      I don't know why Jerry does it;
      I dont want to know why Jerry does it;
      I don't care why Jerry does it.
      I do know that he does it.

      In course of my boring life, I've had the honor of working with Jerry on local portions of his telethon in several cities [I always found a way to mesh my military postings with the telethon]. Have any of you posters taken the time from your insignificant self-important lives to even volunteer at one of the local sites? It is a standing policy that the money raised locally STAYS locally.

      Also, my respect for Jerry went up many years ago; when he used his telethon to blast all the people who had the means to help, but won't because they wouldn't make a profit from it.

      To the poster who complained that her husband wasn't being helped anymore - GET INVOLVED yourself! You can make people understand the situation better than most can.

    I alway enjoyed Jerry Lewis films when I was a youngster. And maybe that's what Lindsey Lohan needs but her parents should of been giving that direction years ago. It's almost to late for Lindsey and she will either die of her own abuse, or maybe, just maybe she will learn from these episodes and realize how self destructive her behaviors really are. So I think Mr Lewis needs to probably pay more attention to his own kids. I'm pretty sure his first wife Pat could have used him around more. And I think I remember a stint one of his sons did in jail. So lets not throw to many stones.

    I agree with Jerry. Both Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton need to be smacked in the mouth and put in jail for at least a year. They've both thumbed their noses at the criminal justice system and don't take their treatment seriously. They are spoiled, self-centered, and socially retarded. Unfortunately they'll never change. Life for them is all about fame, drugs, money, and attention from the public. Maybe if the media and public ignored everything they did they'd go away for ever. I won't hold my breath!

    I was at an AA meeting the other day, and we were talking about how folks like Paris and Lindsey show kids that you can be an alcoholic and drug addict and it's okay, because the penalties are nothing, and isn't all fun and games – like on TV? Of course, the folks we see at meetings aren't as famous and well connected, and generally don't get away with anything. And there is a real increase in those who are not just alcoholic, but have drug problems as well, since drugs are no longer a back-alley phenomenon. Unfortunately, it may take a famous person killing someone while drunk driving to change this mind-set, but I hope not.

    It's just talk. Hilton and Lohan deserve to be smacked but it's way too late. That was their parents' job and they didn't do it. They raised empty-headed spoiled brats. I'll say this for Lohan. I think she's an attractive, talented woman but for the fact that she is doing her best to wreck her life and die young. You can see many reasons in her young life for her being this way but, at this age, she is the only one who can change course. She needs an intensive sit-down with a Robert Downey Jr. or someone else who has had to pull himself up and SAVE himself. Hilton, on the other hand, is a waste of flesh and redeeming graces whatever. And, that greasy smear of a smile....Yeck!

      Kado, that is the most constructive comment I've read. Lindsey is going to keep going downhill until she kills herself or someone else. Robert Downey Jr. would be good at an intervention in this case. As for Paris Hilton, it is a crime that with her advantages and wealth she she doesn't have enough heart or conscience to help and give to others. She should use someone like Princess Diana and her oldest son for examples. It's really sad to say someone is a waste of space. I hope she learns before it's too late.

    While the statement Mr. Lewis made re: Ms. Lohan, no reasonable person believes he was speaking in a literal theme.
    With that said, I believe his messages are sound. Ms. Lohan has yet to hit bottom, mostly because her behavior is enabled by the court system and the "entourage" that does not apply some "tough love" in response to her bratty behavior.

    Unless and until Ms. Lohan "bottoms out" – likely after she kills someone – her life will continue on its path. Unless and until the judicial system gets serious with sociopaths, innocent people's lives will continue to be negatively impacted.

    Shame on the courts, Ms. Lohan's so-called friends, and – firstly and mostly – Ms. Lohan herself.

    Needless to say, the same applies to Ms. Hilton and all the other spoiled young people who act out in destructive and self-destructive ways.

Probably LiLo doesnt even know who that guy is. With that logic I should start smack people because they smell bad, I dont like the way they look and I should smack Jerry just because he is an old fart! wow...what he said is really stupid and I lost every respect for him.

    Jerry Lewis is old school..
    People upset with his comments needs to get a grip..When this guy was young and when his kids were growing up.Parents didn't 'have' to take $.. of kids.They were parents and not friends..And they also had the backing of other adults to take charge of their children.
    So saying he would smack her..Is nothing more than a man speaking old school, on parenting.

They should both be banned from Holiwood and made to go out and work for a living for a while , then maybe they would appreciate what they have.

Yes his telethons are great and worthwhile but otherwise he should be much more discrete and quite advocating violence. He has a history of this sort of thing.

    Lewis should know better than anybody that some people are not suited to fame and fortune, especially when it comes during their childhood. If there is even the slightest dysfunction in a family, that kind of scenario will amplify it. There are simply too many kids who, like Lohan, got fame and made a lot of money, then went off the deep end. This is not to say that Lohan shouldn't take responsible for herself as an adult, but it is definitely a mitigating factor which Lewis seems to ignore. His own son had similar problems as I recall when he was growing up.

    I can appreciate Jerry Lewis. At one time he with Dean Martin were two of the hottest comedy acts in America. They made a lot of money and their lives were touched by very little scandle. They understood propriety. If some of you younger people do not appreciate him, it is because you are so young you have no historical perspective. That is you misfortune, you do not know much, especially about AMERICAN history. Young people have a tendancy that American history and world history began in Chicago in 1980.

They were born into lives of privilege – and through absolutely NO effort of their own, have carved out a place in pop culture.

    What is the matter with this old man? Just because he's old does not mean he gets to go around smacking ANYBODY in the mouth. He's always been a tyrant. I remember years ago when his sons denounced him as being supportive for his Muscular Dystrophy telethon. In front of a camera he's all goodness and light but when the camera is off, he's outta there. One of the MS patients was interviewed after one of his shows and she said he doesn't even talk to them when the cameras are gone. I wouldn't cross the street to spit on him if he was on fire. And he's not funny at all.

    Why is it that these girls catch so much flak for what they are doing? Nobody seemed to have a problem with the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Guns'N'Roses, etc. etc. when they were running around the world high on everything trashing hotels raising all sorts of ruckus. Is it because they are men, so its okay because only men would look up to them and we don't have to watch out for men like we do for women? Or is it because they are musicians and the drugs and partying help them with their craft? Development of morals and values start in the home, not on TV, not on the internet, and not in tabloids. So these girls like to have a little fun, sometimes it's against the law... Who hasn't broken the law? Speeding, driving without a seatbelt, doing a California roll through a stop sign... Doing bad things doesn't always make you a bad person as long as you don't hurt anyone else in the process. It's not like they're breaking into houses or stealing from their parents to get their fix. "But young women look up to them and will try to emulate them!" SO what? Whose fault is that? Lazy, inattentive, negligent parents, that's whose fault it is. They don't claim to be role models, they don't claim to be model citizens, like to party and they have money so they'll do whatever they can get away with. It's not their fault your daughters are mindless sheep following these "shepherds" that don't even recognize them as part of their flock. Most of the people who hate on them only do so because they wish their lives were as privileged as theirs, don't lie, you know it's true. But trying to tear them down won't accomplish anything, and only serves to elevate their exposure, which as most of you have made apparent, is exactly the opposite of what you are looking to do

    Shows how far our society has degraded when people are taking the side of a person who drank, drugged and partied herself to ruin instead of a national icon. A person who has done more in one weekend to help others than she will ever do in her entire life. She deserves to have her clock cleaned, well said Jerry, well said.

    Jerry, it sounds like your anger management issues are getting worse. I'd strongly suggest you seek professional assistance before someone's bodyguard flattens you.
    I may agree with you, but with your past history of being an abusive jerk in public that made Sinatra look like a gentleman, this latest outburst makes me wonder if you have some form of dementia.
    Sorry folks, but my wife worked one if his telephons, he was the most obnoxious and abusive boors in the world back then. My mother was airport security and he was obnoxious enough for her to mention when she got home, which was highly unusual. Other people I've known have dealt with him.
    So, Jerry if those two females in question AND you were in one place with me, I'll have you on one knee and one of the immature brats on the other giving YOUR advice. My only regret will be that I have only two knees and two hands.

Kids today have no respect, they need to bring back the old ways, parents need to take control of their children. not give them everything they want. You break the law (no matter who you are you do the time and stop crying about it. They both know that they will continue to do what they want and come up with excuses or blame someone else for their problems. EVERYONE KNOWS THEY WILL BOTH BE IN FRONT OF A JUDGE AGAIN, next time they could honestly hurt or kill an innocent bystander because what they are in show business and can get away with it.

One simply cannot compare growing up many years ago to today...unfortunately things got out of control many years ago. We did not have such violent gangs and individuals in general back in the day.

      Yeah, 'cause everyone knows Mr. Lewis has a habit of beating on young women. He was blowing off steam, although I couldn't agree with him more.

      We all try as parents to raise our children properly, things do go wrong, not a fault of parenting. Although a response to Zbtrocker_____ If we were to discopline our children today, there sure would be some activist watching and lock the parents up for child abuse , even if it was a swat on the butt. _____ Dam if you do an damed if you dont. Jerry is 100% right , smack them both across the lip once, knock some brains into them.

    Jerry, Thanks for the Sanity and honesty, things you have been known for over the years. I am happy your still with us and was plesently surprised to notice you in the Movie Lil Abner... Yeah I know most would not know of that movie but if these "girls" you want to get some common sense into had just 1% of the smarts of the cast of that movie they would be ok right now. Thanks again for the sanity break

    Oh Jerry, what can I say? You are my hero right about now. If anyone doesn't understand where Jerry is coming from, just check out the movie "The King of Comedy" and you will see the real Jerry Lewis. I agree, Lindsay, Paris, and that Snookie character and a few others needs a good smack in the mouth, to say the least.

    If her parents had taken the time to train her right and keep her in line at a younger age which includes, an occasional swat – she might not need a 'smack in the mouth' today..... kudos to you Jerry for saying exactly what we all think.

      No. He meant "train". "Raise" is something one does with children. Paris and Lindsay are more along the lines of fussy and prissy little poodles.

    Jerry Lewis was a real tool in his day. He just happened to live in a time when he had the studio to cover-up for him. Just because his fun days are over doesn't make him an authority on what is wrong with today. This is like the pot calling the kettle black. The fact that his over-blown ego has "no sympathy" for a troubled young woman doesn't garner any respect for him.

      Nor does LiLo or Paris deserve any respect for their antics, you would think that after Jail time and rehab LiLo would have gained some perspective. Well her hit and run incident of today tells the world that she has not learned anything and that Mr. Lewis is quite correct to call her out on this. I can respect Mr. Lewis more because he lived through thoes old party days and survived. He only effected his and his family with his antics and he is and has made his amends to them in his own way.

      You think LiLo or Paris will ever think they are wrong? Running over baby strollers or smoking so much pot that a cycle patrolman can follow the vapor to them in traffic? You may not like Mr. Lewis and his comments, that is fine with me but as a father of a young girl don't think your pity for these "girls" is going to make anyone with a brain and children change their mind and feel sorry for LiLo or Paris.

      I have never quite figured out why we 'worship' people just because they are on tv or the movies? I loved Jerry Lewis's movies and watching him on tv but why does that make him better or LiLo, Paris H. or anyone better than us? I'm darned good at my job but... I just don't make near the amount of money they do and not near as many people watch me do my job. LiLo does need help and all around her letting her get away with it is not going to help her. If she keeps going one day there might be an infant in the above mentioned stroller.As to the comment about hitting her – who hasn't threatened to hurt (ie – I could KILL you!!) someone at one point or other but never imagined we reallywould?

      I agree Nettie, Old School seems to be the only thing that will help these two ladies in fighting their addictions.

      As to the other two who posted, doesn't mean old school for Jerry, means that we need to bring back old school punishment for these two instead of this slap on the hand they are getting. Give them real jail time just like everyone else gets. Stop giving them this child daycare crap, give them what they need, a REAL PUNISHMENT!!! Heck if they were in another country and caught they would be beaten with a cane pole for sure, it's needed.
