With Bedtime Stories about to arrive on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, star Adam Sandler shares some of his own favorites and more with his fans in this (non-exclusive) Q&A.
QUESTION: You have an incredible success rate – so is there pressure that every movie matches the success of the movie that went before?
ADAM SANDLER: I don’t even know what my movies have done [at the box office] – I am that cool! (jokes) I make my movies and then I walk away. Then people come up to me and say…Wow, what a big hit…and I go, I don’t want to hear. I don’t want to know if they did good or bad, I just want to make movies. So there is no pressure. I have always been that guy and I always will be that guy.
Q: There are Brits, Aussies and Kiwis on screen [in Bedtime Stories]. Did that make for Commonwealth Vs USA rivalry?
AS: I wanted to get to know different people.
Q: Which bedtime stories that you were told were your favorites? And did you ever imagine that this would be where you are now?
AS: No, I didn’t think about that when I was a little kid. I knew I was destined for greatness, I just didn’t know what. (jokes) I was always very good at chess and for a while I thought that would be it. No…Bedtime stories were definitely a big part of my life because I was just so excited that my father was talking to me (jokes). I was like…”longer father, stay in the room with me” (jokes) “can I get a hug also?” “No, just the story.”
