Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler are joining forces again in their Netflix film “Murder Mystery 2,” a follow-up to 2019’s wildly successful “Murder Mystery.” But if you’re a fan of their tight-knit friendship, you might know that the Murder Mystery movies aren’t their first onscreen collaboration.
After meeting in the ’90s and bonding over french toast, the pair starred in 2011’s “Just Go With It.” In a 2011 interview with “Access Hollywood,” Sandler shared just how much he loved working with Aniston while making the romantic comedy. “I couldn’t believe how quick and funny Jennifer [is],” he said. “I know she is [funny] in real life, but it was pretty amazing when we were together how much fun [we had] and how she added and ended up beating me in scenes. I’d walk back to the trailer saying, ‘I gotta get some writers to help me.'”
More recently, Aniston showed up to celebrate Sandler as he received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on March 19. A few days later, she looked back on her 30-year friendship with the actor in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, revealing a little bit about their bond, too. “If I get anything from him, it’s, ‘What are you doing?!’ usually based on someone I’m dating,” she said, laughing. “But I very much love to take care of him. He’s so concerned with taking care of everybody else, which he really does, and he doesn’t take care of himself. I’m sorry to call you out on national television, Adam, but you have to know this.”
In honor of “Murder Mystery 2” hitting Netflix on March 31, look back at the handful of times Aniston and Sandler have starred in films together over the years.
