Adam Sandler gives "Grown-Ups" co-stars their own Maserati
We don’t know about anyone else out there, but we think actors everywhere should be running at the chance to star in a movie with Adam Sandler. Yes, the same Adam Sandler that played a spoiled 27-year old, a volatile hockey-turned-golf player, and a little devil.
Why should people want to work with Happy Gilmore these days? Well, other than the fact that it’s Adam Sandler, it turns out he’s mighty generous to his co-stars, generous enough to each give them their own $200,000 Maserati.
After his movie Grown Ups did surprisingly well in the box-office, Sandler showed his appreciation to co-stars – and real-life buddies – Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, and Rob Schneider by giving them their own Maseratis. One for each of them, equating to roughly $800,000.
Hey, Mr. Sandler! Can we star in your next movie?
Sandler’s people were quiet on the matter, declining comment when asked about the Maserati giveaway, but in an interview with Howard Stern, Chris Rock wasted little time in confirming the reports, recounting the story of one particular morning in the Rock household. "I went outside the other day and I had a new Maserati in the driveway,” he said. “Now I think that I’m Adam Sandler’s [female dog]”.
We wouldn’t mind if Sandler gave us our own Maserati either, but we don’t know if we buy this whole thing. Generosity is one thing, but giving away $800,000 worth of new Maseratis takes the definition of a great friend to a whole new level.
