Adam Sandler

by Patricia from Fresno

My hero is Adam Sandler. he is my hero because he always stays to his roots. He doesn't let anyone take that away from him. Adam Sandler was born on September 9, 1966. He was born in Brooklyn, New York. Adam's mom was a nursery school teacher and his dad was an electrical engineer. Adam's family are Jewish. That's one thing that I like about Adam is that he likes to put a little of his Jewish in his movies. He doesn't let the fame get over his head like other famous people and the fact that he stays close to his roots. Not all famous people do that. Adam Sandler was 17 when he got into the comedy his brother encouraged him to perform. if his brother had not encouraged Adam he would not be where he is at right now. After Adam's graduation he came out on a lot of MTVS game shows. In 1995 Adam had his first movie role with Billy Madison. After that role that year Adam did movies in 1996-2000 but did not do a movie in 1997. The names of the movies were Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, The Water Boy, Big Daddy, and Little Nicky.

Adam got married on June 22 in 2003 with actress Jacqueline Samantha Titone. They have two girls. One is Sadie Madison Sandler who was born in 2006 and the other one is Sunny Madeline Sandler who was born in 2008 but not only is he a good actor. In 2007 he donated $1million to a boy and girls club in his hometown. He also donated $2,100 to Republican Rudy Giuliani's presidential campaign in that same year. In 1998 Adam had 3 nominations in the MTV movies awards. They were for best comedic performance, best on-screen duo and best kiss that he won with Barrymore.

In 2010 Adam came out in Comedy Grown ups with Salma Hayek, Kevin James and Chris Rock. He even wrote the script for the movie as well. For the movie Jack and Jill in 2011 he raked in more then $26 million. For 2012 he lent his voice to an animated movie called Hotel Transylvania. One thing that Adam's dad told him is that family comes first. That if someone in the family needs him that he need go and help them. Adam has always put his family first. Little things like this are what I like about Adam Sandler. He would always be one of best actors in my eyes.
