Adam Sandler’s Insane Generosity to His ‘Grown Ups’ Cast Members: $200,000 Cars
Adam Sandler is the man.
We all know and can agree on that, though.
Being from New Hampshire, Adam Sandler doesn't ever seem to have the "Hollywood lifestyle." He wears whatever clothing he wants, and doesn't give a you-know-what about what other people think.
He is humble, kind, and appreciative of where he came from. Well, Sandler has taken that appreciation to an extreme.
We all know the Adam Sandler classic, Grown Ups. Whether you hate the movie or love it, I guarantee you didn't know that Adam Sandler bought his fellow co-stars David Spade, Kevin James, Chris Rock, and Rob Schneider a Maserati each, estimated to be worth about $200,000 (or about £130,000 at the time), according to an LA Bible article.
Now THAT is a sign of appreciation.
This is a hilarious recollection of it from David Spade.
"He gave us all a Maserati.
"Chris Rock called me and he goes, 'Will you look in your driveway?', and I go, 'No,' and he goes, 'Got out front and call me.'
"So I go out front and they're putting a car in my driveway, and I go, 'What's happening?', and they go, 'Adam Sandler.'
"I go, 'Oh, is this his car, I'm supposed to watch it?'"
He continued: "I call Rock and I go, 'I'm keeping Adam's car here for some reason,' and he goes, 'No that's for you, we all got one'."
Even David Spade did not think it was real. He assumed he was babysitting Sandler's car. Instead, the New Hampshire comedian wanted to show his love to his acting brothers.
This is a super cool story, and a real testament to who Adam Sandler is.
We love you, Adam!
