Jennifer Aniston says Adam Sandler teases her dating choices: "What are you doing?"

Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler team up again for the Netflix comedy Murder Mystery 2, premiering Mar 31. 


Jennifer Aniston admits Adam Sandler calls her out on her dating choices.

Aniston, who has been friends with Sandler for over 30 years, said the Hustle actor has been known to question some of her romantic decisions.

Appearing on The Tonight Show, she told host Jimmy Fallon: "If I get anything from him, it's 'What are you doing?' Usually based on someone I'm dating... [he says] 'What are you doing? What's wrong with you?'"

Aniston said she would also check up on Sandler periodically. 

She added: "I very much love to take care of him. He's so concerned with taking care of everybody else, which he really does, and he doesn't take care of himself."

Pausing for a moment, she continued: "I'm sorry to call you out on national television, Adam, but you have to know this.

"And I have a little arsenal of herbs in my trailer, and I make him smoothies when I can and give him all sorts of Chinese herbs when he's exhausted.

"I'm like the mobile pharmacy. I'm the set medic."

Aniston admitted Sandler's wife Jackie tells her that he would only heed the Friends star's advice for "about a minute".

Despite their decades-long friendship, Aniston and Sandler have only worked together on three movies — 2011's Just Go with It, 2019's Murder Mystery, and the upcoming sequel, Murder Mystery 2.

In Murder Mystery 2, which set four years after the original, Aniston and Sandler's characters are, per official synopsis, "now full-time detectives struggling to get their private-eye agency off the ground when they're invited to celebrate the wedding of their friend the Maharaja on his private island."

"When you meet back up with us, we're not doing that great," Aniston told Fallon of their characters. "So we get invited to a wonderful wedding of someone wonderful, we say: 'We need a break, we need a vacation.' And that's where our mistakes happen."

When it comes to her love life, Aniston — who was previously married to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux — recently revealed while she would "love a relationship", she isn't desperate for another wedding.

She told Allure last year: "Never say never, but I don't have any interest. I'd love a relationship. Who knows?

"There are moments I want to just crawl up in a ball and say, 'I need support.' It would be wonderful to come home and fall into somebody's arms and say, 'That was a tough day.' "

Still, The Morning Show star insisted she is happy on her own.

She added: "I feel the best in who I am today. Better than I ever did in my 20s or 30s even, or my mid-40s."
