Adam Sandler is many things. Not only is he an American actor, one of the funniest comedians, both a producer and a director, but he’s also the loveliest, purest talent the world has seen in the past generation. Known for his comedy, his work for the dramatic scene has also given him some critical praise over the years with projects such as Big Daddy, 50 First Dates, and a LeBron James-produced movie called Hustle.
With a multitude of series, stand-ups, and films Sandler has, you might be curious on what his net worth is. To answer your question, Adam Sandler boasts of a net worth of $420 million as of 2020.
Adam Sandler was born on the 9th of September, 1966 (age 54), in Brooklyn, New York.
Sandler is the son of Judith and Stanley Sandler, a nursery school teacher and an electrical engineer respectively. He descends from a Russian Jewish immigrant family.
Growing up, however, he moved to Manchester with his family at a young age of 6 years old where he attended Manchester Central High School. As a teen, he attended BBYO, one of the most popular Jewish youth groups.
In 1989, Sandler pursued his career in acting––bagging his first role for Going Overboard. Years went by and he’s already starred in movies such as Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, The Water Boy, and the sought-out Big Daddy––the movie that made Adam Sandler’s net worth skyrocket.
In 2004, he starred alongside Drew Barrymore after The Wedding Singer for 50 First Dates––one of the funniest romantic-comedies to ever exist. In the same year, Sandler flaunted his skills of acting for a drama in a movie titled Spanglish where he experienced hardship as a husband with his wife whilst he developed an intimate relationship with his housekeeper.
Four years later, he starred as ‘Zohan’ in You Don’t Mess With the Zohan where he starred, produced, and co-wrote the film.
In the 2010s, Sandler was still at his peak––starring in comedy film Grown Ups alongside Salma Hayek, Chris Rock, and Kevin James. The movie still proves to be one of the biggest box-office hits Sandler has achieved in his long career. In the same decade, he’s also helped out in voicing for the animated film Hotel Transylvania as well as starred in the sequel of Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2 in 2013.
You’ve seen him also in Netflix’s comedy titled The Do-Over where he starred alongside David Spade. As the decade comes to an end, he’s lent his voice again for 2018’s Hotel Transylvania 3.
The 2010s was a big year for Sandler, especially for his net worth––starring in films that perfectly suited his style of acting. Either that or he’s really just diverse the way he is.
