Adam Sandler's most bizarre London sightings from Clapham to Mayfair (2024)

Up Next

Adam Sandler had been spotted exploring London over the last few weeks in a number of unlikely scenes.

The Happy Gilmore actor, 57, enjoyed a spot of basketball at KensingtonLeisure Centre last month, and he’s now been filmed playing the game – which he’s been known to be partial to – in Clapham, too.

He was also filmed rocking out to a Madison Beer concert at the Eventim Apollo.

Perhaps the most bizarre picture Londoners have grabbed of the star in recent weeks came today when one megafan spotted him chilling on the pavement outside of Claridges, flanked by two bodyguards. As you do.

He was pictured slumped on the pavement outside the Mayfair hotel wearing a North Face jacket by fan Corin Richards, 26, who works nearby.

Corin was ‘excited’ to see Adam as he’s a big fan – particularly of Happy Gilmore and Grown Ups.

Fans took to social media confused by the Hollywood A-lister and comedy legend’s mysteriously normal appearances around the capital, as @DnellyBPD wrote: ‘I keep seeing these why is he here? LOL can someone explain this is like this is the third or fourth video I’ve seen of Adam Sandler in a different area of London.’

Meanwhile, @StephanieYeboah said: ‘Adam Sandler currently completing random side quests on the London expansion pack. How random.’

Sharing a video of Adam playing basketball in Clapham on April 1 – which makes us think this whole thing is some sort of twisted, extended April Fool’s joke – X user @CakePint said: ‘Just walked past Adam Sandler playing basketball in Clapham.’

In the video, the Hollywood star can be seen walking around and defending the hoop with three other men. He was dressed in a baby blue hoodie and red tracksuit, sporting his usual casual attire.

One fellow Madison Beer fan captured the star clapping along to The Spinnin Tour concert wearing a purple hoodie and (a very similar but different) North Face jacket, and wrote: ‘Adam sandler attending the spinnin’ tour closing night in london wasn’t part of my bingo card 😭.’

A fellow concert-goer shared pictures and asked what the whole of London is thinking right now: ‘ADAM SANDLER WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?’

Indeed, what on earth is he doing here?

We’re heard a few murmurs from Sandler of late, as it’s rumoured Happy Gilmore 2 is ‘in the works,’ and the actor has even written the first draft, according to Shooter McGavin actor Christopher McDonald.

Last month, McDonald said during a radio interviewon Audacy’s 92.3: ‘I saw Adam [Sandler] about two weeks ago, and hesaysto me, “McDonald, you’re gonna love this.”

‘I said, “What?” He says, “How about that,” and he shows me the first draft of Happy Gilmore 2.

‘Maybe you should cut that out [of this audio] because I don’t wanna be a liar, but he did show me that, and I thought, “Well, that would be awesome.” So, it’s in the works. Fans demand it, dammit!’

Have you spotted Adam Sandler in London recently? Comment Now

While it doesn’t seem like Adam is filming his most beloved comedy Happy Gilmore in London any time soon, maybe he’s sending us signs via his basketball and concert antics.

His 1995 film Billy Madison – in which Adam plays a rich adult slacker who goes back to school – has somewhat tenuous links to his recent appearances.

In it, there’s an iconic scene where the titular character plays basketball with other kids, and singer Madison Beer’s name does echo the film’s. Perhaps he’s trying to tell us – very cryptically – about a sequel…

Adam’s most recent films include Netflix’s Spaceman, in which he plays Jakub Prochazka, and 2023’s animation Leo where he voices the titular character.

Whatever Adam has in store, we’re enjoying spotting him around London.
