But that was enough to set the tone. When costar James Gandolfini arrived in the tiny town, “we all met to have a bite to eat,” Roberts recalls, “and he grabbed me and threw me over his shoulder and gave me a whack on the butt.” Far from being displeased, she says, “I thought, ‘And we’re off.’"

Jenny McCarthy - (contributed by Magenta) - The American model/tv celebrity administered a swat of the paddle each on tv to 3 frat pledges, and she told them to "Thank sister Jenny for each one."

Jenny Maxwell - (contributed by Paul) - In a book I saw several years ago about Elvis, Jenny Maxwell was quoted fairly extensively, discussing her famous over-the-knee, sea-side spanking in "Blue Hawaii." My recollections here will have to be paraphrased. Ms.Maxwell noted that Elvis "really hit hard!" because they wanted to make sure the scene took on a certain validity or authenticity. It was noted by the author that, in the scene where Jennie rides on horseback, she was seen on the set "seated gingerly slightly above the saddle," due to the spanking she'd just endured from her leading man. What's more, I remember a passage where the author pointed out that Jennie had, in fact, twisted her ankle on the set of "Blue Hawaii," and was temporarily hobbling around with the assistance of a cane. She made a comment, the author reports, where she'd gotten it "twice," in "two places" -- referring, of course, to her bruised ankle AND her bruised behind!

(contributed by JD) - I read a book about the scene (from Blue Hawaii) which actually reprinted a press interview with Jennie Maxwell about the spanking scene. The spanking scene took three different takes to complete. Ms. Maxwell recalled her dress was wet because of her character having tried to have drowned herself when Presley took her over his knee. She also mentioned that because of the wet clothing, it was like being spanked without clothes. She mentioned her bottom was very red and sore for hours following the spanking -- each take involved ten to twelve hard swats to her bottom. She was 19 at the time and got along with Presley during the filming of "Blue Hawaii"; she had no desire to endure another spanking from Presley.

(p.74) He also said that the Bolenders forbade games of playacting, which Marilyn enjoyed. She did her playacting hiding in the woodshed, and if she was caught there she might be strapped. On page 75 Kahn writes: "There is some reason to suspect that Albert Bolender did not strap Marilyn purely to save her from a future of brimstone. Amid all the noise of children, amid all the repressions of fundamentalist religiosity, he may have enjoyed having his way with the abandoned little blond girl." (SF&R Comment) I haven`t read, Joe & Marilyn, but I have seen another reference which suggests that Marilyn Monroe was spanked with a razor strop across her bare backside while growing up.

Martina Hingis - (contributed by Jack) - On a New Jersey radio station, during last year`s (2001) U.S. Open Tournament, two commentators began discussing 'rumours' about Swiss tennis star, Martina Hingis, that had surfaced a few years previously. They seemed keen to stress that these were only rumours and not confirmed facts, that Martina was regularly spanked with a sandal or gymshoe by her mother until around 1997, when she was 16. She would be spanked either for not putting enough effort into her training, behaving badly on court, or for giving up on a match without a fight. After the 1999 French Open final, in which Martina lost to Steffi Graf and was jeered by the crowd for her unsporting behaviour, Martina and her mother had a major argument during which her mother tried to spank her for the first time in around two years. Martina did not take the spanking willingly. A few weeks later Martina appeared at Wimbledon without her mother, apparently still angry that her mother had spanked her.

(contributed by Melvin) - I read on a message board that during an interview with the tennis star`s mother she mentioned that she spanked Martina if she didn`t try hard enough.

(contributed by Rick) - It was reported on television at a tennis match recently that part of the reason for the falling out Martina Hingis had with her mother had to do with the fact that her mother still insisted on using a switch on her when she didn't feel Martina was doing her best.

"I can still remember Mama’s whippings very clearly. She could make you dance with a peach limb! Mama believed in the old adage, "Spare the rod and spoil the child," and she always said no child of hers was too old to get spanked. She was our disciplinarian and she was wise about it. She never said, "Wait until your father hears about this," or threatened us in any way with Daddy. She dished out the punishment at the scene of the crime. I never heard her tell him about having to spank any of us.
