As if the life of a movie star needs to get any more awesome, Christmas came early for a few lucky actors this week.
Apparently funny man Adam Sandler was so pleased with how well his latest movie, Grown Ups, did, that he gifted his co-stars and fellow comedians, Chris Rock, David Spade and Kevin James with their own $200,000 Maserati.
$800k is chump change for Sandler, who’s one of the highest paid actors in the world — but his grand gesture has been the talk of town.
It sort of makes a nice Edible Arrangement a little gauche, now doesn’t it?
Grown Ups grossed $270 million dollars at the Box Office, and, coincidentally, just came out on Blu-Ray and DVD today. Apparently, Sandler’s co-stares had no idea they were going to literally open their fronts doors to find the pricey automobile in their driveways.
“I went outside the other day and I had a new Maserati in the driveway,” Rock told Howard Stern on his Sirius radio show, “The movie’s like the biggest thing for (Sandler). He appreciates the help.”
According to Yahoo!, Sandler certainly has money to spare: He currently sits at No. 9 on Forbes’ list of the most overpaid actors of 2010.
Sandler is not the first to bestow blinged out rides upon his fellow superstars. A few months ago, teen heartthrob Justin Beiber scored a Lamborghini from Sean “Diddy” Combs for his 16th birthday. But not before Usher gave him a Land Rover, ya, know, just because.
It must be tough to be a celeb in Hollywood if the new “gift basket” is a luxury car.
