Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore support their on-screen partner in romantic comedy Adam Sandler after winning the Mark Twain Award.
The 56-year-old US comedian and actor who starred in Just Go With It with Aniston and 50 First Dates with Barrymore has won an award in Washington, D.C.
Aniston, 54, also appeared in the 2019 crime comedy Murder Mystery with Sandler, and the pair are set to reprise their roles in its sequel later this year.
Barrymore, 48, is best known for starring alongside Sandler in the 1998 romantic comedy The Wedding Singer and the 2014 comedy Blended.
The 24th Mark Twain Award was presented for contributions to American humor. He shared the award with his wife and fellow actor Jackie.
Since 1998, the award has been given to comics that impacted society in a way similar to that of the celebrated author and humorist Twain, who died in 1910.
Sandler said after accepting the award at the Kennedy Center in the US capital. I didn’t expect something like this. nobody did.
After the Happy Gilmore star was given the award, Barrymore said: “Adam changed me and the world so much with his comedy.
Previous winners include comedian Richard Pryor, who won the first award, and Whoopi Goldberg, who won the award in 2001.
For the rest of the 2000s, the award went to actor and comedian Steve Martin, filmmaker and cartoonist Billy Crystal, and the late George Carlin.
Other recent winners included Mean Girls writer Tina Fey, talk show host David Letterman and, in 2019, Dave Chappelle.
Earlier this month, Sandler was interviewed by This Morning. I accidentally made an on-air failure.
When asked what life was like on set with the Uncut Gems actor, she described it as “s***s and giggle.”
Amid laughter from Holly Willoughby and Phil Scofield, Aniston quickly apologized and put his hand over his mouth.
