We’re told Sandler, in particular, is sorry to be returning to LA. The “Billy Madison” actor, who grew up in Manchester, N.H., enjoyed his rental house next to the Eastern Point Yacht Club in Gloucester so much that he’s offered to buy it from the owner. As one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors – he earned an estimated $65 million last year – Sandler can certainly afford the oceanfront manse. Though he’s a big movie star, Sandler didn’t act like a diva, according to locals. He often played basketball at the Gloucester YMCA, and was a regular at Long Beach Dairy Maid, the Chinese restaurant Dragon Light, and at Frank’s Sub Zone, where owner Frank Carini hung a framed poster for Sandler’s latest flick “Funny People.” “Nice guy,” says Carini, who served the actor steak tips. “We don’t get a celebrity like him in here very often.”
Here’s Salma Hayek at last week’s Cape Ann Farmer’s Market. Salma is in town as part of the cast of the Adam Sandler movie Grown Ups. Don’t forget to shoot on down to the CAFM Thursdays from 3:30-6:30 at Harbor Loop. For more information- CapeAnnFarmersMarket.org
Friday after work I drove downtown to grab a cup of iced tea and while circling to find a parking spot I saw Rob Schneider sitting outside at the Pleasant Street Tea Co. I found a parking spot in front of Passports and treked up with camera in tow to snap a shot. First walking past him I asked if he was enjoying his stay in Gloucester and he said he loves it and the people were really nice. I didn’t whip out the camera but instead went inside and grabbed a fruited iced tea drink (Pleasant St Tea Co makes some really refreshing iced tea BTW).
So I was going to sheepishly ask Rob if he would mind me snapping a quick picture for the blog and after paying for my iced tea inside a group of folks had gathered around him.
I’ll tell you he couldn’t have been more patient or accommodating. What a sweet guy. He took a little time with each person, signed autographs and made conversation, never looking distressed or trying to rush folks along. I snapped a quick picture while he was posing for some other folks and then headed back to Passports.
