Evidently nothing gets Jerry Lewis, 84, more enraged than an out-of-control starlet, according to an interview with Lewis on Inside Edition.
Lewis, who will host the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon for the 60th time this weekend, unleashed a rant about Lindsay Lohan and other troubled stars who take their celebrity for granted.
"I think they need a f*****g spanking! And a reprimand!" Lewis, says in the interview with "Inside Edition."
"It has nothing to do with [money and fame], it has to do that they have the intelligence of a box of rocks. A bag of snails will give you better answers than those people….I think a great deal of it is ignorance and crying for something other than fan love."
Asked specifically about Lohan, Lewis said, "I’d smack her in the mouth if I saw her. I’d smack her in the mouth and be arrested for abusing a woman."
"Inside Edition’s Jim Moret then asked, "What would you say to her?"
"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. And then put her in rehab. And that’s it."
