Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston
Good friends for 30 years – that’s how it all started
“Murder Mystery 2” has just started, the third film since 2011 with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. But they have known each other for much longer.
The dream couple is reunited: Jennifer Aniston (54) and Adam Sandler (56) investigate in “Murder Mystery 2” again as a married couple in a murder case. The sequel to the surprise hit of 2019 is available on Netflix from March 31.
Murder Mystery 2 is Sandler and Aniston’s third film together. Their first collaboration was “My Fictitious Woman” in 2011. In the remake of the classic “The Cactus Blossom” (1969), Aniston plays Sandler’s assistant and practice manager, who has to pose as his wife. With amorous consequences, of course.
Even before “Friends”: Friends since the early 90s
But Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler have known each other for much longer. They first met at a dinner sometime in the early 1990s, like the duo in one Interview with Jimmy Kimmel (55) betrayed. Aniston was dating one of Sandler’s friends at the time. What became of it is not known, but she became friends with Sandler. So they were friends before “Friends” as Kimmel pointed out slyly.
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler have been friends for a good 30 years. Since then, they have repeatedly emphasized in interviews that they love each other – purely platonic, of course. Their families are also friends. Aniston was invited to Sandler’s daughter’s bar mitzvah. She did not have time, but sent a gift. Worth 1.8 million, as Sandler probably not meant seriously.
She takes care of his diet – he takes care of her dates
On behalf of Sandler’s wife Jackie (48), Jennifer Aniston even takes care of his nutrition on the set. “I promised his wife that I’d make sure he was eating as healthily as possible when we were shooting,” the actress just revealed. And Aniston is indeed a role model for Sandler, he admires her fitness.
In turn, Adam Sandler worries about Jennifer Aniston’s love life. “What are you doing, what’s wrong with you”, her buddy kept saying about her choice of men, as the “Friends” actress once revealed.
