Saturday Night Live vet and Uncut Gems star Adam Sandler and his actress wife Jackie Sandler are all about the movies. The two met on set for his film Big Daddy and since then, Jackie has continued to have roles in many of Adam's films. Better yet, Adam and Jackie's daughters, Sadie and Sunny, are in the business too, and often have their own parts in Adam's films. Adam and Jackie's daughters are just as talented as their famous parents and look right at home on the big screen. For more on the Sandlers' daughters, keep reading.

Sadie Sandler

Sadie Sandler was born on May 6, 2006. She is Adam and Jackie's oldest daughter. Adam and Jackie had Sadie in Los Angeles three years after they got married, and Adam has said that becoming a dad changed his life. He told Access soon after Sadie was born that he was terrified while Jackie was in labor, but that he was so excited. "I had a chemical reaction in my body, where I loved the kid so much, and I was so nervous for her, and that's when I lost my mind for the kid." He also said that he goes all out for his children, including dressing up to tell them bedtime stories, according to the Irish Examiner.

Sunny Sandler

Sunny Sandler was born Nov. 2, 2008. She is Adam and Jackie's youngest daughter. Sunny was also born in Los Angeles, where Adam and Jackie have called home for years. Sunny, along with her older sister, Sadie, can often be found in Adam's movies (as can Jackie!). They've had parts in several of his films, including those that his production company, Happy Madison, produces, that he's not necessarily in. They were both most recently in The Wrong Missy on Netflix alongside their mom. But even though Adam keeps putting his daughters in his movies, he still keeps them away from any of his grittier roles, namely his performance in Uncut Gems. He told Closer Weekly, "I'm nervous about when they're old enough to see this that they're going to be disappointed in my behavior."

  • As If Short Hair Couldn't Get Any Cooler, Allow Us to Introduce You to the French Bob

    Anyone who's ever gotten a big chop knows: cutting your hair is like hitting a giant reset button on your life. If you are experiencing fatigue (with your hair or otherwise), desperately looking for a change, or wanting to feel inspired, a haircut will do the trick, but sometimes it's hard to know where to begin. Somewhere between a lob and a pixie cut is the sweet spot we call the bob. It's cool, it's easy, it's low-maintenance. But if the typical blunt-end bob style doesn't suit you, there are more options out there just waiting to be discovered - like the French bob. Unlike the straight ends of a blunt bob, the French bob is more choppy with piecey ends. The style just skims your cheekbones, which also gives them a more pronounced look. It works on curly, straight, and wavy hair textures and instantly gives your look a touch of attitude. Allow the following street style shots to serve as inspiration and proof that the French bob is the chicest cut around. It makes for a laid-back, perfectly messy style that looks like you just rolled out of bed but also like you're ready to step onto a runway - which pretty much sums up French beauty. As you scroll through these French-bob haircut ideas, it'll take everything in you not to chop off your hair right here and now. (But of course, we advise strongly against that.)
