They're the two best friends that anyone could have!
Ever wonder how Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler ended up as one of Hollywood's most likable on-screen couples??
The stars, who have worked together in films like The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, first came together after Barrymore requested to meet with the 49-year-old funny man during an admittedly low point in her career.

In an interview with Howard Stern, the 40-year-old mom of two shared:
"[I thought] I want to be a modern weird Hepburn, Tracey old Hollywood couple … We looked like the worst blind date you've ever seen. I showed up with purple hair and a leopard coat and he was in his classic cargo pants. As soon as I saw him I was like 'Yeah you're going to have to see past all this.'"
LOLz! We guess opposites attract!
So how'd she convince him? The E.T. star said:
"I said, I really believe that you and I could get together and do something meaningful."
That's when everything changed for the actress — which she discusses in a chapter called "Adam" her new book Wildflower:
"He was hot sh*t and he believed in me. It's a little bit of a love letter to him because I have grown with this person."
We know what you're thinking… no, the two have never been romantically involved:
"I never, we never, ever, ever, ever, nothing!"
