Adam Sandler talks Rob Ford at Men, Women & Children red carpet
Considering that most of his early comedies are about blubbering, barely coherent man-children flailing to redeem themselves and prove to the world that they’re something other than amusingly inept, maybe it’s no surprise that Men, Women & Children star Adam Sandler has been following Rob Ford. On last evening’s red carpet for the film—which is about parents and teens dealing with the wild world of modern technology—Sandler apparently told the Sun’s Jenny Yuen that he wishes the mayor luck in next month’s election, and hopes “everything gets better” in Ford’s life. (That said, he refused an offer of a free Rob Ford bobblehead. But in all fairness, what’s he supposed to do with it all night?) Sandler was on the rug at the Ryerson Theatre alongside men, women and children such as Men, Women & Children director/co-writer/prince of Canada Jason Reitman (his dad, Ivan Reitman, was also there, in case you forgot they’re related) and co-stars Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kaitlyn Dever and Ansel Elgort. Even Bill Murray showed up! Though showing up to places where he’s not expected has kind of become Bill Murray’s “thing.” He’s like Hollywood’s Polkaroo.
