Say what you will about Adam Sandler‘s work, but there’s no doubt the actor, comedian, and screenwriter has had a legendary career. His movies have grossed over $4 billion worldwide, including 17 films that have each grossed at least $170 million. He first signed a four-movie deal with Netflix in 2016 before signing another deal with the streaming giant in 2017, effectively making the home Stranger Things helped grow the landing spot for most of his films over the last five years.

And while critics have panned many of Sandler’s movies, the actor has also had box office hits with films like Uncut Gems, Grown Ups, The Waterboy, Click, 50 First Dates, and The Wedding Singer—and all of those movies have contributed to Sander’s hefty bank account. Let’s also not forget his role voicing overprotective father and vampiric hotel hotelier Count “Drac” Dracula in the animated franchise Hotel Transylvania, which has grossed more than a staggering $1.3 billion worldwide across three theatrically released movies.

Here’s what we know about Sandler’s net worth.

Adam Sandler made $41 million in 2020.

Sandler’s 2020 haul was over 25% less than his $57 million year of 2019, but it was still good enough to land him in ninth place on Forbes202o list of the highest-paid actors. This marks the eighth time he’s appeared on the list between 2010-2020, including four straight appearances starting in 2017.

After having an actor credit in a film every year since 1998, 2021 was the first year we didn’t see Sandler on the big screen. While Forbes didn’t release Sandler’s earnings from 2021, he didn’t crack its top 25 highest-paid entertainers list released in February, meaning he earned less than the $55 million Taylor Swift generated to earn her the 25th spot. Sandler’s 2020 salary mostly comes from his Netflix deal, netting the 25+ year veteran $31 million. His 2022 is looking more prolific with the release of arguably Netflix’s best basketball ever Hustle, along with sci-fi drama film Spaceman and a sequel to his 2019 comedy film Murder Mystery slated to be released this year. So don’t be surprised if you see Sandler’s sitting pretty on the Forbes list once again for 2022.

    Adam Sandler’s net worth is an estimated $480 million.

    According to Celebrity Net Worth, Sandler has been in over 50 major studio releases since he left Saturday Night Live in 1995, and he earned at least $20 million for about 15 of those movies. Sandler also gets a cut from his films’ backend. For Anger Management, Sandler got an upfront salary of $25 million-plus, 25% of the movie’s gross, which added $37.5 million to his paycheck. While Celebrity Net Worth has Sandler’s net worth at $420 million, his bio on Apple TV has Sandler’s net worth pegged at $480 million.

    Sandler also writes, produces, and stars in many of his movies. His production company, Happy Madison Productions, has produced most of Sandler’s movies since 1999.
