How Drew Barrymore & Adam Sandler’s Working Relationship Started As ‘The Worst Blind Date Ever’

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore

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!”

We figured!
