This weekend Sony hosted a big schmancy event in Cancun, during which all of the studio’s projects had formal photo shoots. It’s a chance for Sony to celebrate and show off all of their projects. Here is how Adam Sandler, promoting Hotel Transylvania 2, chose to present himself.
To be clear, I give as many fucks about Adam Sandler’s wardrobe choices as he seems to himself. He can wear sweatpants all day, every day (and Kevin James can drape himself in ugly sneakers) for all I care. What DOES bug the crap out of me is someone who gets paid millions upon millions of dollars to make shit movies, is lucky enough to have had a two-decade career doing so, who can’t be bothered to show a little gratitude and respect for that opportunity.
And finally, let’s talk about the even more rage-inducing issue here: the visual embodiment of Hollywood’s gender bias fuckery. Sandler and Kevin James look like they just rolled out of their matching hammocks after a lazy Sunday nap, which is apparently totally acceptable, while their 22-year-old female costar probably had to spend hours with a team of stylists making her as glam and sexy as possible. To stand next to Adam Sandler’s goddamn sweatpants.
