Adam Sandler and his wife, Jackie Sandler, with their family, have stepped out for the premiering of the animated movie Leo. The couple was seen in the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California, on 19 November with their daughters Sadie, 17, and Sunny,15.
The family seemed really happy and excited when they arrived for the premiering of their second film this year. Each member of the family showed off their unique style. Adam looked very comfortable and cozy in a gray sweatshirt, comfortable sneakers, and a blue zip hoodie over a patterned polo.
Jackie Sandler looked classy, wearing a short black dress with white details at the top and black flats. Their eldest daughter wore white high-top sneakers with a green gown. While Sunny smashed the look by wearing a golden gown with open-toe heels.
Sunny Sandler was the star of their last film, You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, which was produced by her father, Adam Sandler. The whole family acted in the movie, which was based on the 2005 young adult novel of the same name.
Adam’s new movie, Leo, is an animated film starring the voices of the family. The main character is a lizard, Leo, who is given the voice of Adam Sandler. Leo is described as a musical comedy about the last year of elementary school, as seen through the eyes of a class pet.
Adam Sandler talks about making the movie
On the red carpet, in an interaction with the media, Adam talked about their experience making the movie together as a family. He says the family has been working on the movie for more than four years, and his daughter grew up while doing this movie.
The actor said that it was fun and great learning with his daughters, who have also found a passion for acting.
The daughters will have the support and advice from their father and actor to carry them through their careers, and he has already started giving them advice. The advice by the father was
to make sure you feel good about what you do and how hard you worked, and you judge yourself. Don’t let too many people try to get in your head. If you feel like you gave it your all, that’s all you can ask, he added.
