But she revealed in her memoir <em>Wildflower</em> that she had to “beg, borrow, and steal” to get her <em><a href="https://ift.tt/bLE8C7h First Dates</a></em> co-star to see her in the mid-’90s. </p> <p>When Sandler finally agreed to a meeting, they didn’t seem like a match right away. “It was definitely not obvious we were supposed to fit as well as I believed because we looked like a preppy and a punk set up on a bad blind date,” Barrymore wrote (per <a href="https://ift.tt/mncs081" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Vulture)</a>. </p> <p>“But I shook his hand with fervor, thanked him for meeting me, and began to plead my case to him,” she explained. “I told him that, for whatever reason, I knew that we were supposed to become a team.” </p> <p>And the result was <em>The Wedding Singer</em>, a film that changed the direction of each of their careers.</p> <h2>Drew Barrymore ‘made it seem’ Adam Sandler was a convincing lead in romantic movies</h2> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Adam Sandler's emotional speech about his friendship with Drew Barrymore just brought us to tears.

She was a child actor superstar in the early ’80s, completely dazzling late-night icon <a href="https://ift.tt/3LioVpC Carson</a> on <em>The Tonight Show</em> at the tender age of 7. But partying at a young age made her a pariah, and she had to prove herself again after teenage institutionalization and emancipation brought her to a new place in life.</p> <p>According to her, Sandler gave her the chance she needed to prove how she’d matured into a young adult in the ’90s. And they’ve remained friends ever since.</p> <h2>Adam Sandler’s wife doesn’t mind his romantic movie scenes with Drew Barrymore</h2> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">?
