murder mystery

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston have starred in three movies together, “Just Go with It” (2011), “Murder Mystery” (2019) and “Murder Mystery 2” (2023), and their chemistry is undeniable. They probably work so well together on screen because they’ve been friends in real life since they were in their 20s.

Aniston revealed their closeness in an anecdote she shared in WSJ Magazine. "Aniston, who does not have children and has spoken openly about her struggles with fertility treatment, says Sandler and his wife [Jackie Sandler] send her flowers every Mother's Day,” the profile’s author, Ellen Gamerman, writes.

It’s a touching move for the Sandlers to reach out to Aniston on a day that must be hard for her. Last year, she opened up about her struggles to conceive through in vitro fertilization (IVF) with Allure.

IVF can be a very challenging process for a woman to go through. It involves invasive procedures and hormonal fluctuations and can be a real emotional rollercoaster. On top of that, Aniston was the subject of baby bump tabloid speculation for years and was often criticized for being “selfish” and choosing her career over motherhood.

“I was trying to get pregnant. It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road,” Aniston said about a time in her life a few years ago. “I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese tea, you name it. I was throwing everything at it. I would’ve given anything if someone had said to me, ‘Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.’ You just don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed.”
