Adam Sandler Quotes

Adam Sandler’s popularity can be gauged from the fact that Netflix signed a deal with him for acting in and producing four movies, which will be exclusively premiered to Netflix subscribers. So why is Adam Sandler so popular? And why is his humor loved by the audience? The answer is persistence. Sandler has given Hollywood a lot of poor films, yet almost all his films comfortably cross the $100 million mark. Let’s look at 11 quotes that prove his worth as an actor, and also give us some lessons on life:

1. Be comfortable with who you are

“My name is Adam Sandler. I’m not particularly talented. I’m not particularly good-looking. And yet I’m a multi-millionaire.”

2. Own you failures

“I had my moments of being humiliated, and then I had moments of doing something humiliating. I’m glad I lived out both roles.”

3. Always be confident

“I was raised by a mother who told me I was great every day of my life.”

4. Be original

“I’m not comfortable being around too many people. I don’t like being out in public too much. I don’t like going to bars. I don’t like doing celebrity stuff. So most of the characters I play are people who don’t always feel comfortable beyond their small circle of friends.”

5. Never let criticism get the best of you

“A lot of critics object to what I do, but I got into comedy to make people laugh, and I’ve always worked hard.”

6. Sometimes not knowing everything can work for you

“My comedy is different every time I do it. I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.”

7. Having a direction is important, no matter how slowly you work your way through it

“Through my films I’m eventually trying to one day tell the truth. I don’t know if I’m ever going to get there, but I’m slowly letting pieces of myself out there and then maybe by the time I’m 85, I’ll look back and say, ‘All right, that about sums it up.”

8. Make people laugh, they’ll pay you in both cash and kind

“I don’t know who I touch and who I don’t. I work hard trying to make people laugh. I try to do the kind of stuff that made me laugh growing up. I don’t have any secrets. I don’t know the reasons I’ve been so well received.”

9. Change roles in life if needed

“When I’m around the kids I feel like I act the most grown-up just because you’re supposed to. And I say things, like every other day, that remind me of my own parents.”

10. Dreaming big can actually help you in achieving big

“When I got into this, I never thought about reviews. I never thought about what people would say about me, I was just a young guy who was excited to become a comedian and an actor, and I just wanted to get to do what I got to do.”

11. Never quit

“I’ll continue to make the typical Adam Sandler comedies.”
