Adam Sandler often stars opposite some of Hollywood’s most beautiful women, including Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore and Salma Hayek, but there’s one woman who has appeared in more Adam Sandler movies than any — his wife, Jackie.
Sandler is one of the most successful actors of all time, appearing in more than 80 movies and TV shows since 1987, when he made his big break on The Cosby Show. After becoming a regular cast member on Saturday Night Live, he became a household name and began appearing in comedies with his own unique style of humor that people either love or hate.
Jackie Sandler, née Titone, has been happily married to the Happy Gilmore actor for 19 years. The couple, who met on the set of Big Daddy, married in 2003 and have two daughters.
While some couples prefer to keep business and pleasure separate, that’s not the case for Adam and Jackie Sandler. The couple has appeared in 23 films together, including some of Sandler’s biggest hits. Clearly, they love working together, and Jackie encourages her husband to “get in there” while kissing his beautiful leading ladies.
“The best thing is that my wife loves Drew (Barrymore) so much, that she, like, encourages me. There’s no jealousy at all, she’s like ‘Get in there,’” Sandler told Ellen DeGeneres in a joint interview with Barrymore. “Please, for the sake of women, get in there and just look a little more alive.”
While most people never knew the identity of the beautiful brunette who often appears in Sandler’s movies, she has been hidden in plain sight the entire time. While she could be dubbed the queen of cameos, here are all the movies she has appeared in with her husband.
Jackie portrays a waitress who asked Julian (Cole and Dylan Sprouse) why he was at the bar during a scene for Big Daddy, after which Sandler’s Sonny Koufax playfully teases the kid about the pretty waitress. Big Daddy is about a man (Sandler) with nothing going on in his life, who becomes a foster father for his roommate’s son.
