Adam Sandler he hilariously shared the moment he ignored critics and didn’t know people could hate his movies.
In a recent conversation about his show hustle Netflix, Adam Sandler he returned to his first film, Billy Madison which he co-wrote with Tim Herlihy.
According to Variety, Sandler began: “When I was 17 and I got into this, I didn’t think about the critics. I didn’t even realize what was coming. I just thought you made movies, people would go see them.”
Continuous: “When Billy Madison came out, me and my friend who wrote it, we thought, ‘Oh yeah, they’re going to write about this in New York!’ We grew up reading newspapers, we went to New York University.”
Speaking more about his first realization, Sandler added: “And then we read the first one and we were like, ‘Oh my God, what happened? They hate us.'” And then we said: ‘It must have been this paper,’ but then 90% of the papers say, ‘This is rubbish.'”
The 56-year-old comedian said he learned to live with criticism after his second and third movies.
He said: “And that’s okay, I get it. Critics aren’t going to connect with certain things and what they want to see. I get that it’s not clicking with them.”
