Adam Sandler Reveals He ‘Popped’ His Groin While Filming ‘Hustle’

Adam Sandler is currently healing from a set injury.

On Wednesday, the famed comedian chatted with ET’s Kevin Frazier at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles for the premiere of his new basketball thriller, Hustle, and opened up about filming the project with several NBA legends.

“I played with everyone, all the men, and it’s humiliating, you know?” says the player. With a laugh, Sandler said. “You take a shot in front of them and they see how flat your shot is and how stupid you look because you don’t have any form.”

“Then. when they fire their weapon ‘Yeah, yeah, alright, that’s how you’re meant to play,’ he said.

Sandler plays Stanley Sugarman, a former basketball scout who seeks to revive his career by persuading Bo Cruz (played by NBA star Juancho Hernangómez) to play for the NBA.

Sandler would frequently play basketball with his NBA pro-co-stars while filming in Spain, but his own gaming was short-lived.

“We were doing some of it,” Sandler recalls, “but that was before I popped my groin.”

“One night, my groin couldn’t handle it any longer, so I told myself, ‘I guess I’ll just have to watch these people go.'”

“It’s been a year already, and I’m still limping about like a fool… it’s dreadful,” Sandler said of the unintentional injury.

Sandler, on the other hand, had nothing but admiration for his co-stars and collaborators, including executive producer LeBron James and his wife, Teresa Sugarman, played by Queen Latifah.

“Latifah and I have known each other for a long time, and she is a stunning woman,” Sandler said.

“There was always a swarm of people wherever we went.” ‘Oh my god, that’s Queen Latifah!’ would exclaim the crowd. She has a pleasant aura, spreads joy, and is simply a pleasant person.”

On June 3, Hustle will be released in limited cinemas, and on June 8, it will be available on Netflix.
