Adam Sandler’s Early Life and Career Beginnings

Adam Richard Sandler was born in Brooklyn on the 9th of September 1966 to Father Stanley Sandler (1935-2003), an electrical engineer and Mother, Judith, a nursery school teacher.

Though his lineage has been traced to Russia, his family is Jewish making him associate himself with a popular Jewish group for youths in his early teens. He and his parents moved to Manchester, New Hampshire when he was six and subsequently, he attended Machester Central High School. He later moved on to college and graduated from the Tisch School of the Art’s at New York University. That was in 1988.

Sandler revealed that he was a class clown in his school days. However, he never gave acting a thought until his brother suggested that he perform at a Boston Comedy Club when he was 17. He soon landed gigs and appeared on MTV show ‘Remote Control’, and later The Cosby Show.

The major breakthrough in his career came when Dennis Miller, a ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast member spotted him and got him a role on the New York-based show in 1990. He first began as a writer and started acting in 1991 until 1995. On the show, he created characters like Opera Man, Canteen Boy, and Cajun Man. He also composed a number of amusing songs.

His outstanding contributions to SNL prepared him for bigger roles that soon followed. He began commanding 7 figure paychecks per movie role. His first post-SNL movie “Billy Madison” (1995) scored him a $1.7 million paycheck. The subsequent “Happy Gilmore” and “Bulletproof” both in 1996 earned him $2 million and $2.5 million respectively.

After a short hiatus, Sandler returned in 1998 with more mature comedy roles like “The Wedding Singer” and “The Waterboy” which earned him $5.5 million and $6 million respectively. His next role in “Big Daddy” brought him $8 million.

One of the most prominent roles by Sandler was in “Bedtime Stories” (2008) which he also produced. It was the first-ever family film he acted and his first under Walt Disney Productions.

What Is Adam Sandler’s Net Worth?

Adam Sandler has several times, featured on Forbes’ list of overpaid actors. This list features actors who earn way too much money when compared to the box office performance of the movies they starred in. However, Sandler still commands fat paychecks, thanks to the legacy he has set for himself in Hollywood.

The actor also known as Sandman has starred in over 50 feature films which have grossed a combined total of $2.5 billion. He has received over $20 million for not less than 15 movies. On the average, he rakes in $35 million annually from all endeavours.

He made $37.5 million from 2003 movie “Anger Management”. His 2010 movie “Grown Ups” which he also wrote grossed over $271 million at the box office over a budget of $80 million. The sequel brought in $248 million. This is quite an achievement considering that the ratings on Rotten Tomatoes were quite poor.

Sandman has won more than 45 awards ranging from MTV movie awards to the People’s Choice Awards. He has also received Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. The star has released 5 comedy studio albums, two of which have been certified double platinum and another two, gold.

A major bulk of his wealth comes from his acting endeavours. The value of the man’s wealth is estimated at $420 million.

His Wife, Family Members, and Death Rumours

Sandler is married to actress Jacqueline Titone. The pair got married in June 2003. At his wedding ceremony, he made his Bulldog his best man – the pet had his own tiny tux to fit the occasion. Sadly the pet died of a heart attack at just 4 years of age.

Adam Sandler's Wife and Kids

The couple has two beautiful daughters together. Their daughter Sadie was born in 2006 while their second, Sunny was born in 2008.

If anyone is wondering whether Adam Sandler is dead or alive, it’s probably because of the report that circulated on the 13th day of January 2017 claiming that the comic actor is dead. The news was published by a celebrity hoax website – Linkbeef.com. The site claimed that the actor committed suicide in his apartment because he had been suffering from severe depression. Unfortunately, some close friends, family and fans alike believed this news and thus took to social media platforms to share the news as well as offers condolence messages. But fortunately for the movie world, it was fake news. Adam Sandler is alive and kicking.

Houses

He owns a number of homes in California, Florida, and New York. His Bel Air mansion is worth $42.5 million. He also owns a home in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles. The house measures 13,000 square feet. More so, the man owns a Cadillac Escalade Hybrid.

Adam Sandler may be one of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood. However, he is talented and naturally fits in most of his roles. He is one of the very few actors whose income is almost entirely from one source of income.
