Adam Sandler is famous for two things; making funny movies and getting paid tons of money to make said movies. Through his acting and producing, Sandler has been able to amass a personal net worth of $300 million. He is one of Hollywood's most bankable stars which allows him to command $20 million per movie along with very impressive percentages of a films GROSS profits. That's gross profits not net profits. FYI that is a gross amount of money when you consider some of those films earned over $150 million at the US box office alone. For the movie Anger Management Sandler earned $25 million plus 25% of the gross which was roughly $150 million. That's an extra $37.5 million in the Sandman's pocket.
Sandler has starred in roughly 20 major studio releases since he left Saturday Night Live. He reportedly earned $20 million for about 15 of those movies. That's $300 straight to Opera Man. When you account for all the money Sandler has made through salaries and profit participation, then you give roughly 35% to the US Government, experts peg Sandler's net worth conservatively at $300 million. Sounds like a lot for basically playing the same character over and over but Forbes estimates that for every dollar Sandler has ever been paid, his movies have made $9. Regardless of whether you think shampoo or conditioner is betta, one thing is for certain like his character in Billy Madison Adam doesn't have to worry about money ever again.
