Adam, along with directors Josh and Benny Safdie, opened up about some secrets behind his breakout film, Uncut Gems, including the time he really almost choked while filming.

The moment happened when Adam‘s character gets kidnapped, and after the scene, he was left with bruises.

“All three of those guys who are manhandling Sandler, it was the first movie they have done. So they were very professional, but when it is your first time – Sandler’s so in it, he is so into the character that it started to actually get a little scary. Because he is getting choked at one point in the scene,” Josh shared.

“Our stunt coordinator had eyes on him (Sandler) the whole time and kudos to him that he was really hawk-eyed about it – because there was one take when Sandler was getting choked and he was trying to tap out,” he added. “But the actor thought he was just being Howard so he choked harder, and Adam could not breathe.”

You can stream Uncut Gems now on Netflix.
