If we think of comedic artists, his name probably comes to mind immediately. Adam Sandler is a Hollywood hero. He has been in movies like Big Daddy and recent hits like Hubie Halloween. But behind the well-known actor is a love story that is sweeter than any fiction.
They got together because they loved movies.
Jackie Titone began her profession as a model after graduating high school. A few years later, in 1999, she got her first part as an actress, and she changed her focus to acting. On the other hand, Adam Sandler was already a well-known and successful actor. He rose to fame in the 1990s with parts in movies like Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, and Billy Madison.
They met while making Big Daddy. The aspiring actress met Rob Schneider while he was making a cameo role. He later helped her meet Adam Sandler, one of his best friends. Ultimately, Adam chose to put her in the movie, which he also produced. In the end, she got the part, and the rest is history.
Even though Jackie only had a small part, that work greatly affected her life. Even though she was unsuccessful in the months after the movie came out, she won Adam’s heart, and they fell deeply in love.
They got married only four years later.
After they started dating, they worked together on a number of movies in which Jackie was a part, including 50 First Dates, Just Go With It, and many others. While still working together, they chose to be a couple for life and got married on June 22, 2003. At a Malibu home, the couple said their vows in front of many famous people, including Sharon Osbourne and Jennifer Aniston.
Crowned their love by having two daughters
The happy couple had Sadie, now 16 years old, in May 2006. Shortly after she was born, Adam said, “The baby girl is healthy! My wife is in good health!”. In November of 2008, Jackie and Adam’s second daughter, Sunny, was born. Both girls have also been in some of her dad’s movies, like Hotel Transylvania and Murder Mystery.
In some conversations, the actor said that Sadie and Sunny wanted to be in some of his movies because they shared their parents’ love of movies. “They kept asking me all year, ‘Can I be in your next movie, Dad?’
Jackie is her husband’s most reliable friend.
Every great person needs a partner to support and encourage them in good and bad times. Adam would not be the man he is today if Jackie had not been there for him. Even though he has won awards for his work and had several successful parts in movies, Adam would not be the man he is today if Jackie had not been there for him.
Adam’s wife is always there when he shoots scenes, pushing him to do his best. Sandler remembered when Jackie helped him while shooting a kissing scene with his longtime coworker Jennifer Aniston. “The only thing that makes me uncomfortable is hearing my wife say, ‘Harder, harder, kiss her harder!'” Adam joked.
Without Jackie’s help, Adam might not have taken on some of his biggest projects for fear of being unable to finish them. The actor said his wife pushed him to take on parts he thought would be hard, like his leading role in Uncut Gems.
“I read it and loved the story, but I was afraid to act it out. I then asked Jackie to read it. Jackie and I do this together. We talk about what I will do, and she gives me the strength and courage to do it,” Adam admitted.
Still deeply in love after 24 years together
Adam and Jackie have been together for 24 years, but time hasn’t changed anything about their love story. Their relationship has grown to become stronger than ever. When they celebrated their wedding anniversary in 2020, the star wrote on Instagram, “22 years ago today, we looked into each other’s eyes and fell deeply in love.” Adam wrote, “I love you, my forever girl,” to show how happy he was to enjoy 22 years with his wife.
Trust and love are the only ways to keep such a close bond. Sandler spoke honestly about it, saying, “Just spend time together. Make sure you don’t run off too much and just hang out together.” He also stresses the importance of being honest and spending quality time together, saying, “Just an hour of hanging out together gets us back on track.”
