Are Adam Sandler's Kids Heading For Hollywood?

If you're still feeling slightly salty over Adam Sandler's Oscar snub for Uncut Gems, maybe this will cheer you up a bit. Sandler's strong bond with his two daughters is enough to make even the grumpiest fans smile. In case you didn't know, the comedian-slash-actor and his wife, Jacqueline Sandler, share two children: 11-year-old Sunny and 13-year-old Sadie. And just like their famous dad, Sunny and Sadie Sandler already know how to steal the spotlight. 

But are Sunny and Sadie headed to Hollywood just like their father? Eh, maybe not yet, but their singing voices would certainly make Taylor Swift proud. And they apparently have strong senses of humor, according to Sandler himself. So even though you've probably never heard about the celeb's kids before, they're slowly but surely paving their own path — and their dad couldn't be prouder. Keep reading to learn more about these two talented Hollywood offspring.

Adam Sandler's daughters are huge Swifties

Back in October 2019, the Sandler sisters performed a cover of Taylor Swift's "Lover" while their dad, Adam Sandler, strummed along on the guitar. According to Insider, the performance went down at a charity event attended by big names like Julia Roberts, Courteney Cox, and Sean Penn, and the girls didn't look the least bit nervous. Sadie and Sunny even put their own spin on the track — swapping the "keep the Christmas lights up 'til January" lyric to "Hanukkah lights" and throwing in a reference to matzo ball soup — obviously making their dad, who created and starred in Eight Crazy Nights, proud. As seen in a video shared on Twitter from the performance, they received a standing ovation from the audience at the end.

That same month, Sandler spoke to Us Weekly about how his daughters enjoy singing with him when they join him on the road. "They like to sing ... and they see Daddy up there and they're like, 'Can I try that?' So I say, 'Get on up there,'" he explained. "Whatever they're excited about in their lives, I'll back them up." Whether literally backing them up on guitar or figuratively having their backs, it's clear Sandler is his girls' biggest fan.

Sunny and Sadie Sandler inherited their dad's sense of humor

As proven by the Apatows, sometimes funny bones are genetic. Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann's daughters, Iris and Maude, have already started to make names for themselves in Hollywood beyond appearing in their parents' movies like This Is 40 and Knocked Up. Similarly, it sounds like Adam Sandler's kids got his comedic chops. In January 2020, Sandler told Us Weekly"They like talking about acting. But we'll see. They're still little kids, but they both like watching films. They like comedy, serious stuff, Stranger Things... They're funny kids." That being sad, at the end of the day, it may be more than a fun hobby than an actual career. He told the outlet, "I just know that they have a good time. They like doing it around the house."

Hilariously enough, the Sandler sisters aren't exactly their dad's number one fans — at least when it comes to his movies. Back in 2017, the actor revealed to Ellen DeGeneres (via Vanity Fair) that he finally let his kids watch his movies after they begged him... only to become super bored. "So I show them the movies — they demand this — and they get, every time, I'd say about 20 minutes in, and then I see them tuning out, and then I hear them. They're nervous to say it, but like, 'Can we watch something else?'" Hey, they're kids. What do you expect?

Being surrounded by stars is nothing new for Adam Sandler's kids

If David Spade calls your bat mitzvah "crazy," you know you went above and beyond — and that's exactly what Adam Sandler did. He even got Maroon 5's Adam Levine to perform for his older daughter Sadie's big day. In May 2019, Sandler appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and explained that he wanted to do something extra special for the event. "I was driving in town and for some reason, I start texting Adam Levine who's a great guy. And I text him, 'I'm sorry to do this to you, my kid is getting bat mitzvah-ed Saturday night. Would you mind coming and singing a few tunes?'" Levine admitted he couldn't say no to the Billy Madison actor, as Sandler recalled, "They played three great songs. It was the coolest thing."

So while they may not be the next big Hollywood stars themselves, Sadie and Sunny are no stranger to the celebrity lifestyle. And if they eventually do decide to pursue singing or acting professionally, Sandler will be right there — probably with a guitar in tow — ready to support them.
