Audiences loved the chemistry of Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston and as a result, the two stars have appeared in multiple movies together. However, despite their professional and personal histories, there is still one aspect of the job where Sandler tends to be skittish: kissing his opponent. His distaste for kissing Aniston on screen led to an unexpected note from his wife, Jackie Sandler. The Uncut Gemstones actor has now revealed request to hug him and Aniston in the coming Murder Mystery 2†
The Sandlers have produced several projects together, including the first murder mystery, so the lady sees quite a bit of her husband’s work on set. And that, of course, includes his recent on-screen kiss with Jennifer Aniston. Adam Sandler joked with Access Hollywood that he resents having his female co-stars kiss him, especially in front of his wife. But apparently his wife’s feelings about this are a little different, as she was actually encouraging him to give Aniston his best. Sandler said exactly:
With Jennifer Aniston and Jackie Sandler being close friends, you would assume there is a significant level of comfort when it comes to scenes like this. That must be a bit of a relief for Adam Sandler, even if he doesn’t believe he’s a good kisser himself. You have to love a woman who supports her man in such a way. And I’m sure, thanks to her help, Aniston and Sandler’s work should be so much better. The mystery comedy sequel is wrapped up, but at the time of writing, Netflix has not announced an official release date for it.
The SNL alum’s comments about not being a good kisser are somewhat surprising. Considering he’s kissed the likes of Kate Beckinsale, Salma Hayek and Winona Ryder, you’d think he’d be a pro at this point. The actor has also frequently kissed Drew Barrymore. Since none of his colleagues have complained openly, I’d say the actor probably doesn’t give himself enough credit.
Before Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston kiss onscreen in Murder Mystery 2, Sandler will make love to Queen Latifah, who plays his wife in Rush† The sports drama, which has received critical acclaim, is currently running in select theaters and will be available to stream with a Netflix subscription from June 8. It should sit firmly next to the best movies on Netflix. You can also find the sports movie (and eventually the comedy sequel) in CinemaBlend’s schedule of upcoming movies.
