The "Get Him to the Greek" star previously worked as a presenter for MTV UK and it was only after a risque interview with Sandler that Brand began contemplating moving to the U.S.

He says, "I was in England minding my own business, presenting an MTV program, and Adam Sandler came on it as a guest.

"I was quite cheeky (to him) even though he was a big movie star and afterwards people said (to Sandler), '...

Adam Sandler
Of all the major stars today, not many cause such a divisive "love him or hate him" argument like Adam Sandler.
