Adam Sandler loves every movie he’s ever made and doesn’t believe he’s had any “downs” during his acting career.
Since he made his feature film debut in Going Overboard in 1989, the 53-year-old has starred in movies such as Punch-Drunk Love, The Wedding Singer, Happy Gilmore, and The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), which were positively received, but he has also appeared in many more which have been critically panned, such as The Ridiculous 6, Grown Ups 2, and Jack and Jill, which have all received less than 10 per cent on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.
However, when asked about the ups and downs of his career in an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes on Sunday, he insisted that he’s proud of all his projects.
“Man, I don’t know what the downs have been. I mean, maybe in some people, when they write about me, they talk about my downs. But I don’t have any downs. I love every movie I’ve made. I’ve never in my entire career phoned one thing in,” he replied.
With some of his movies attracting cruel remarks from trolls and critics alike, Adam admitted he’s become used to the criticism.
“That stuff doesn’t hurt me anymore. I think it hurt me 20 years ago,” the actor mused. “It got me 20 years ago. I was – kinda shell-shocked like, ‘What happened? They say I suck? I thought I was good at this.'”
Adam’s latest film, Uncut Gems, is currently the highest-rated film of his career, with a 96 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes following a film festival circuit. He has also been receiving praise for his gritty, dramatic role, having recently won the Best Actor prize from the National Board of Review, and is also nominated for his acting for the Independent Spirit Awards and Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

Pete Davidson is working with Judd Apatow on a semi-autobiographical comedy film.
The American star, who does stand-up comedy and is a cast member on Saturday Night Live, rose to global fame following his brief engagement to popstar Ariana Grande in mid-2018.
Now, according to editors at The Hollywood Reporter, Davidson is partnering with Apatow on a new movie project, which is currently untitled. It is anticipated that the film will mirror aspects of the 25-year-old’s own life, including how he spent his childhood in Staten Island, New York and the impact of the tragic death of his father, New York City firefighter father Scott Davidson, during the September 11 terror attacks in 2001. When he joined Saturday Night Live in September 2014 at the age of 20, Davidson also became one of the show’s youngest cast members ever and the first to be born in the 1990s.
Neither Davidson nor Apatow have commented on the film, which is set to be overseen by studio executives at Universal. However, the movie will mark Apatow’s first directing project since he made 2015 romantic comedy Trainwreck with Amy Schumer. Production is due to begin in May or June (19).
Barry Mendel, who teamed with Apatow on films such as Funny People and The Big Sick, and was also a producer on hit comedies such as Bridesmaids and This Is 40, will serve as a producer.
In addition to his Saturday Night Live gig, Davidson has a number of films on the go, including a part in Taraji P. Henson’s What Men Want, and a lead role in Big Time Adolescence alongside Jon Cryer and Machine Gun Kelly.
He recently wrapped on John Turturro’s Going Places, a spin-off of The Big Lebowski centred on notable bowler Jesus Quintana.
