Brad Pitt Tells His Favorite Adam Sandler Story & Adam Confirms Every Detail Is True

Brad Pitt and Adam Sandler interviewed each other for their Variety actor-on-actor cover.

In the cover story, Brad recalled one of his favorite stories Adam has ever told him, and we’ll relay the conversation here!

“You were talking about your time at NYU. This is my favorite Adam Sandler story [...] It was that you were at NYU, and it was an acting coach, I believe,” Brad said. “And he said to you, ‘I want to take you out for a beer.’ This is what I’m told. You guys went to a bar, and he kindly said to you: ‘Think about something else. You have to choose another path.’ Truth?”

Adam responded, “Exactly.”

Brad continued, “There’s a second part to this story. This is why it’s my favorite Adam Sandler story, and I think it says a lot about you. That you ran into him at your height, when you’re getting the ultimate payday, and you’re with a bunch of friends, out at a bar. Anyone would think that’s the opportunity where you rub it in his face. And reportedly, what you did was you introduced him to your friends, and you said: ‘This is the only teacher to ever buy me a beer.’ True?”

Adam confirmed, “Yeah.”
