Adam Sandler gives co-star Chris Rock a new Maserati

Updated: 


If you get a gift from one of your colleagues this Christmas it is likely to be something highly inappropriate and dished out through a secret Santa scheme organised by a well-meaning and probably bored receptionist. It is also likely to cost no more than a fiver and get left in your desk over the holiday anyway.

But that's not the case if you work with US funny man Adam Sandler. The multi-millionaire actor is generous enough to have given his Grown Ups co-star Chris Rock a brand-new Maserati, costing around $200,000, or £125,000.

"I went outside the other day and I had a new Maserati in the driveway," Chris Rock told Howard Stern on his Sirius radio show, adding "Now I think that I'm Adam Sandler's bitch."

But Sandler's munificence didn't stop with Rock, apparently his other co-stars, David Spade, Kevin James and Rob Schneider will all be getting a new Italian automotive toy soon too. It's alright for some. We'll just have to feign contentment with the bottle of cheap bubble bath bought from petty cash.
