Adam Sandler went on live television Monday with a noticeable shiner on his left eye.
“This is something I have to discuss, right?” the “Hustle” star, 55, said on “Good Morning America” while pointing to his black eye.
Sandler shared that he got the mark on his face because he kicked up his feet to untuck his bedsheets in the middle of the night in order to get his phone, which caused the device to go “flying” and hit him in the head.
“I refused to acknowledge it,” he added. “I felt blood and said, ‘Ah, there’s something going on, but I got to sleep.’ Kept sleeping, woke up …”
“GMA” co-anchor George Stephanopoulos then chimed in, “That is the most elaborate black-eye story I’ve ever heard.”
“There’s nothing cool about this thing,” Sandler said as the other “GMA” co-hosts laughed.
“It looks so cool. When I’m on the streets of New York, like, I see people going, ‘Oh, OK. He likes to fight, that guy.’ I’m like, ‘Ah, it was a bad accident.’”
This is not the first time Sandler has appeared on television with a black eye. In fact, it’s happened twice before.
In 2014, he appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” alongside Drew Barrymore and joked it was his “50 First Dates” co-star’s fault that he had a shiner.
Sandler said Barrymore, who was pregnant at the time, was not feeling “great” backstage and so he said he would “take a look.”
“She depanted [sic], and I looked up there, and this hand comes out and goes, ‘Boom!’” the comedian said, joking it was Barrymore’s unborn baby that hit him.
“That’s sick!” the “Never Been Kissed” star responded as the audience laughed.
Then, in 2015, Sandler was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s special NBA Finals “Game Night” show and once again had a bruise on his eye.
The “Uncut Gems” star said he got that black-and-blue mark from a pickup game of basketball he ventured into when he was supposed to be getting his tire changed.
“Some guy didn’t call a pick and smashed my head, my head blows and then I couldn’t lie about it,” he said. “I came home with a black eye and had to tell the truth — then paid a guy to change the tire.”
