Adam Sandler has worked with some of the most famous people in Hollywood.
Since the actor became famous in the 1990s with movies like “Happy Gilmore,” “The Wedding Singer,” and “Billy Madison,” some of the biggest names in Hollywood, like Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore, have been drawn to his movies.
But Adam has worked with one person who may not be as well-known: his wife, Jackie Titone Sandler. They met on the set of Big Daddy in 1999, and they’ve been together ever since. She started out as a model, but now she also acts and makes movies. She has even worked on a number of movies with her husband.
Who does Adam Sandler marry? Here is everything you need to know about Jackie Sandler and her relationship with the actor.
Jackie Titone Sandler Started Her Career as a Model
Jackie (formerly known as Jackie Titone), who was born in Coral Springs, Florida, on September 24, 1974, began her modeling career when she was still in high school. Her first role as an actress was in the 1999 movie “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” directed by Rob Schneider. She played Sally in the movie.
Jackie Met Adam on Big Daddy Set
Jackie portrayed a waitress at a local sports bar in the 1999 smash Big Daddy, where Adam supposedly met her on set.
In 2020, on the tenth anniversary of the day they met, the actor posted a sweet Instagram tribute to his wife. Adam captioned a photo of him and Jackie from 22 years ago with, “22 years ago today we locked eyes and fell deep.” “I hope the next 22 years bring you much happiness and success, young girl. I’m in love with you, girl.”
She and Adam’s Marriage
On June 22, 2003, the couple got married in a Jewish ceremony outside the oceanfront Malibu home of Dick Clark. PEOPLE said after the wedding that along with the couple’s famous friends, Adam’s dog Meatball, who wore a black tuxedo jacket for the big event, was also there.
There were about 400 people at the wedding, including Jennifer Aniston, Rodney Dangerfield, and Sharon Osbourne.
They Have Two Daughters
In May 2006, they had their first child, a daughter named Sadie. Adam wrote on his website about the birth of the baby: “Kid is in good shape! My wife is in good shape!”
In November 2008, Jackie and Adam had their second daughter, Sunny. Some of their father’s movies, like Hubie Halloween, Hotel Transylvania, and Murder Mystery, have had the girls in them.
Adam made a joke about his daughters’ cameos on The Drew Barrymore Show in a 2020 episode. He said, “They make it look like I’m making them do it.” “In the meantime, they kept asking me all year, ‘Daddy, can I be in your next movie?'”
Jackie has also appeared in a few of her husband’s movies, like 50 First Dates, Grown Ups, The Wrong Missy, and Hubie Halloween.
Jackie Encouraged Adam for the Role in 2019’s Uncut Gems
At the 2020 National Board of Review Gala, Adam won the award for best actor for his role in Uncut Gems. But he couldn’t take all the credit because Jackie was the one who told him to take the part in the first place.
“She gave me the balls to play the part,” Adam said of Jackie during the occasion. “I was afraid, and she told me, ‘Go f—- do it” and ‘You can do that s—-,’ and we practiced all the time.”
Jackie Friends With His Leading Ladies
Adam isn’t the only one who has formed bonds with his long-term leading ladies, including Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Aniston. Sandler told W magazine, “My wife adores the women I work with.”
When speaking on Aniston’s behalf at her Walk of Fame event in February 2012, the Click star voiced a similar emotion, adding, “I adore this young lady. My wife adores this young lady. The entire world adores this young lady.”
He also addressed the Friends alum by name in a June 2019 interview with the Associated Press. “They [Jackie and the kids]…love Aniston and want her to be happy,” he explained.
What about Drew? In 2014, Adam revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that his wife “loves Drew so much that she urges” him to be more romantic in their scenes together. “His wife Jackie is incredible,” Barrymore said.
