"She just doesn't miss. [She's] funny, we lock-in together ... we do love each other," Adam Sandler said.
Adam Sandler adores his friend and co-star, Jennifer Aniston, and even praised her sense of humor. The two recently starred in their third movie together, the action-packed Murder Mystery sequel Murder Mystery 2. Sandler recently won the Kennedy Center's Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, so the fact that he finds Aniston hilarious is high praise.

"We got emotional, I didn't know what was going to happen," Sandler told Good Morning America of the celebration at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., earlier this month. "It was all great friends of mine there making speeches, family members ... everybody got us teared up, but it was a lot of funniness and a lot of people made fun of me and the way I look. I loved it." Also in attendance was Aniston as well as another co-star and close friend, Drew Barrymore. The ladies decided to do a bit about being Sandler's love interests just for laughs.

"We thought we'd be funny 'cause there was a Twitter thing a couple of years ago and they're always sort of comparing us, who's the better movie wife or movie love, so we just thought we'd do a little bit on that," Aniston explained. Sandler, 56, asserted in response, "You guys were funny, everybody loved it." In fact, the trio is considering doing a movie project together. "Jennifer's gonna write it," Sandler said.
"We want to do all three of us together and just put an end to this competition," Aniston, 54, said with a laugh. "There's no competition," Sandler added. "Just two great ladies. That would be amazing doing a movie all together."
The 50 First Dates actor praised his co-star Aniston for making the experience of playing a married couple in their new movie "comfortable." He said, "she just doesn't miss. [She's] funny, we lock-in together ... we do love each other," before calling Aniston "one of the funniest people I know."
"We've been together for over 30 years, together as good friends, partners," Aniston added.
Aniston also joked that Sandler is playfully critical of her romantic life while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "If I get anything from him, it's, 'What are you doing?' " Aniston said. "Usually based on someone I'm dating… [he says] 'What are you doing? What's wrong with you?' "
The Friends star admitted that she does "very much love to take care of" the actor and comedian. "He's so concerned with taking care of everybody else, which he really does, and he doesn't take care of himself. I'm sorry to call you out on national television Adam, but you have to know this," she said. "And [Sandler's wife Jackie Sandler]'s like, 'Thanks, it lasted a minute,' " Aniston joked.
