I like this story because it reminded me of what my grandpa would have run to the press to spout off about if he had been a famous man. He had loud-mouthed opinions like most old dudes do, but it's amusing that some of the funniest and sweetest ones out there also appear to be advocates for domestic abuse towards women.
Jerry Lewis, that crazy old dude who originated THE NUTTY PROFESSOR character, went on record the other day to claim that he had the perfect solution for the Lindsay Lohan problem. Talking to "Inside Edition," the man with more than 60 years in show business explained, "I'd smack her in the mouth if I saw her. I would smack her in the mouth and be arrested for abusing a woman!"
While I know that I shouldn't laugh at that, I can't stop giggling about imagining that actually happening. I know it's not nice to think about a woman getting smacked by a guy who loves all children as long as they're physically disabled, but hey... sometimes life isn't nice.
Especially when, after her co-stars saying that they respected her when the initial premiere of MACHETE happened and coincided with her getting out of rehab, now people in Robert Rodriguez's camp are urgently tracking down Lindsay's managers to make sure that she doesn't show up to any promotional gigs for the movie. Rodriguez must actually want to make some money on a flick for once.
