Adam Sandler Discusses Whether He Prefers Doing Dramas Over Comedies At This Stage Of His Career


Adam Sandler has been making audiences laugh since his early days on SNL. His comedy films like Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore have become classics, and he continues to put out crowd-pleasing comedy films with his Netflix partnership. But Sandler also delivers dramatic performances now and then, and following the release of his critically-acclaimed basketball movie Hustle, the actor has reflected on how this has impacted the kinds of films he wants to make in the future. 

In a recent interview with AARP, Sandler discussed how he handles negative reviews and was asked if he prefers to make dramas or comedies at this stage in his career. Sandler expressed his love for both and how all of his projects have presented a new challenge, saying:

I’ve done both for a long time. When I went to NYU, I did a lot of scenes that were just dramatic, not funny. Punch-Drunk Love was 20 years ago. That was different and exciting. I like giving myself over to a new challenge. Sometimes I feel like I’m tapped out with new thoughts, and then all of a sudden, something new comes up and I go, “OK, how can I make this happen?” It was cool as hell pushing myself in new ways like I did on Uncut Gems. Running around the Diamond District in New York, the intensity of that amazing character, or in Hustle, being around the greatest NBA players and not worrying about laughs as much as what each character is going through and pulling for. But I do love comedy more than anything.
